Additions by Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Word magic, ideas of magic as an alphabetical river, weaving a mysterious interlacing of mental characters, mental words and the mind’s spoken voice was adopted in the middle ages. This was how magic was marked by written forms of symbols that were much older and changed. Then there were the educated book rhetoric for profiting god(s), kingdoms and kings and for the seeds of prosperity and wealth.
Before the middle ages or earlier traditions there were no written words, nor books nor runic languages for spells or the casting of magic in the earliest pagan traditions. Magic was not something to caste, it was within the person and within nature to be touched and experienced. Its hard to understand a spirituality and impressions of magic that has nothing to do with power or personal empowerment, and from earlier millenniums into shamanic cultures before paganism, where its a birth rite of our Soul for healing.
Every modern pagan runs across the healing aspects of magic whether they do it for themselves when they get cancer and chose not to go to doctors or to seek a shaman who has healed many of their own diseases through self healing and natures magic. However we get there, there is always more to learn.
Aficionados of the culinary arts and herbal remedies, should also know that bain-marie, namely, a container which holds hot water into which a pan is placed for slow cooking, was believed also to be her invention and named after her. Ask any modern Witch about her own Cauldron and she will say it obviously must have been a woman who created it, otherwise we would have not carried into our modern traditions today.
The etymology of the word alchemy itself abracadabra, is complicated and still debated via the Old French and Medieval Latin, coming from the Arabic “al-kīmiyā”, itself derived from ancient Greece χημεία or χημία, also attested as χυμεία, “the art of alloying metals, alchemy.”
Preceded by the Arabic definition and according to one interpretation, χημ(ε)ία could derive from Χημία, the Greek rendering of Kmt which is the “The Black Land,” an Egyptian designation for Egypt under the Clans of the Black Vulture (condor or thunderbird) of the Goddess Nehkebet (Night) which represents our Soul, all birds represent our soul. So literally, the first most powerful magical word, means the night soul and its healing.
Nehkebet’s sister, the Cobra Goddess Wadjet is the Serpent Goddess (healing applied to the soul issues of karma). These are the oldest two symbols of the goddess on the oldest stones of the neolithic eras, when they ruled before the Pharaohs (pre-Sphinx and the first Pyramid society). People just automatically think the Pharaohs were the power behind the earliest kingdoms, they were not. They were women, especially Grandmothers who were shamans and chief leaders. It was only the invention of writing that weeded them out of existence and more control through writing could do that.
To demonstrate that magical names, often unjustly neglected and considered to be owned by a particular era or religion is just not true. The etymology of post-classical Latin Abracadabra has been the subject of much conjecture; no documentation has been found to support any of the various conjectures which have been put forward. Some have suggested an origin within Latin or Greek, e.g. as an alteration of abecedarius abecedary adj. with insertion of euphonic elements (e.g. -ra-), others a borrowing from languages as diverse as Thracian (a sparsely attested Indo-European language) and Sumerian.
A connection with post-classical Latin abraxas, Hellenistic Greek abraxas has also frequently been suggested, but the nature of any relationship is really unclear. A further large group of etymological suggestions tries to derive the word from Hebrew or Aramaic or even Arabic in various ways, involving, for example, an alteration of an unknown Aramaic name of a demon, or a connection with a Hebrew word’, but again, supporting evidence is lacking, and the uses of the magical word in Jewish sources does not seem to be attested before the early Middle Ages, or around the 13th century CE which is relatively new uses of the word.
Magic outsides the context of mind, mental body, paganism and even witchcraft is a different relationship to magic for those willing to begin anew as a soul and not “use” magic but rather… “be” magical in its natural forms, not mental form and let the magic come to you in nature’s forms, not human forms. For the directions and realms of the mental body has controlling aspects of desires, that are put forth and where there is desire there is ego and control issues.
Long time practitioners will tell you that the personal journey equals the magical journey and how they master their own issues and heal them, adds to the greater magic applied. Some are naturals when young of course, but karma is a bitch when it returns what you have sent out from being young and unaware of the 360 degrees, rather than 180 or 90 degrees or even the linear process of how the mind actually works. I think modern Chaos Magic practitioners try to touch on some of the more shamanic magic but they are prisoners of the mind and not shamans.
To touch real chaos, it is a development of behavior, of attitudes, of healing and of disciplines. In other words, the undeveloped nature of the higher self, living a lower or little self with the idea of the great power of magic bypassing real life. In the magic of the soul and of nature, it’s quite the opposite its an incorporation of real life of the natural self and the natural world, not the world of power but empowerment. Although the meanings that are embedded in our souls memories and soul remembrance are far deeper and older than the 12th century, more than formulated letters, runic charms or sigils and spells.
Even the root, older than Nordic and German runes are the Hungarian or Magyar “rovás” runes which is ignored by runologists, even when they discuss the possible origin of the runes. A handful of faithful Hungarians who try to show the antiquity of their rovás writing. When we move out of these written origins of mag we move into the breathing of the life forces into the world from one’s soul which receives the earths magic, natures magic from its own source.
Silence, Breathing or Whispering will connect with the energy of magic’s energy, as a still step into soul’s magic energy of what is around you. Its what around you that is more important than you. A little bit at a time without words, books or the alphabet if rightly told; surely the ancient belief that whispering, like the Slavonic whisperers is a kind of multi-dimensional loom of women who with their clan or nomadic families were ceremonial weavers before they every called themselves magic. All of this type of magic was dissipated after the 12th century mostly because of Heraldic Religious suppression all over the world.
Magic has its other realms, it has sight, it has smells of the olfactions and its formula layering outside the context of writing and runic writing into form, into image and into pure art (creative). Its our ability of human’s interactions with the in-between the worlds magic which is untouchable and cannot be owned or used for self-reasons, because its not based on the physical. It is the Clair-alliances, Clair-audience, Clair-degustation and Clair-sentenance forms of nature that come forth and make themselves present to you. Some call this the mystery and mystical experiences, I call that magic born not of the mind but the soul. For a human does not approach this type of magic, it approaches you and with it, a storm of the winds of a reality that no longer exists in a claimed way.
In modern magic (1000 bce to present), the transcribed, the scribes, the knowledge, the divination of priestesses, the symbolic or runic languages were created to bring word form into the right here. But in prehistory these magic applications were dances, song and a shamanizing action, sometimes with a drum and with the more rare, with the soul of the self activating pain. Interceptions actually created more power then for men during the pagan era, and then the original voodoo witchcraft for men (was to gain power through woman’s soul and womb as one) and steal her fire began to spread… the Hebrew Demon Bowls are proof.
There was a site that referenced abracadabra as “a word of Kabbalistic“ significance that was, and still is used for incantations. It was declared that when written, folded so as to conceal the writing, sewn with white thread and worn around the neck, your ailments would subside. Sometimes you were required to remove letters and this would further cause the illness to diminish.” Did this work? Well the journals do not give accounts to this experimental time on earth of who, when, where and what. So no, there is no accountable data for that.
To dive deeper, you can walk further into it, but the notion is hardly unique that the myth of the power of words and language has a heavenly effect, but more of a power and control effect. In Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Chinese and Japanese, there are dozens of mystical scripts and amalgams of marking alphabets or ideograms that are moved to talismanic objects equal to this one Kabbalistic reference.
Another reference is that the phrase is Roman in origin — with a slightly different spin: “from ancient Rome the phrase abracadabra! It’s likely a version of the Aramaic words abra (to create) and cadabra (“as I say”)— or “create as I say.” According to the 2nd century CE – physician Serenus Sammonicus, who was Emperor Caracalla’s personal doctor, said it was an incantation used to weaken the hold that disease or illness would have over a person.
Shamans who undo curses, or bind demon vampires, werewolves, witches, evil sorcerers or undo sickness of the soul, travel to the place of the sickness within the soul, with their own soul to cut the chords between the human and their demon. That is magic at its highest and full conscious levels. The mind has no jurisdictions here, except observation. When a dreamer (death shaman) consciously leaves her body with her soul (astral body) she has the power to slay the sickness or the persons karmic astral body (demon or shadow) and send it back to the underworld where it belongs and was freed by that person through shamanic plants, drugs, psych meds etc, either consciously or unconsciously. The unbinding then has really occurred. If abracadabra was written and worn in a container around the neck, it would cure something only if the soul was involved. This is the earliest magic of the pre-pagan eras, in the shamanic eras.
The earliest destruction’s account was a Biblical account, found in the history of Rachel. When with her sister Leah, and her husband Jacob, they left the house of her father, and the first connection of a female holding magic in her hand, was documented saying that Rachel was a thief. Of course when it comes to women, we know the hate of religious father’s hell pit of distortion and misunderstandings and slaughter of women.
Douglas Harper, etymological wizard, offers, “magical formula, 1690s, from the Latin (Q. Severus Sammonicus, 2th century), from Late Greek — Abraxas, a kabalistic or gnostic name for the supreme god, and thus a word of power. It was written out in a triangle shape and worn around the neck to ward off sickness, etc. Another magical word, from a mid-15c. writing, was ananizapta.
The earlier recollection than Kabbalistic reference, is that which comes from Egyptologist, Orientalist and Philologist, E. A. Wallis Budge, in a reference work on talismans and amulets, that the word meant, from the Hebrew — abreq ad habra —
“Hurl your Thunderbolt even unto Death.”
This is the holiest of its meanings and leaves the human teaching out of it, and goes further back into the goddess era’s of nature and natural phenomena, instead of human magic as a human creation. Nature at the root assists us and I believe the entanglement of our lives in our adult stage (not youth or elder) is what magic & meaning holds from within, extracted outwards and taking non-magical paths of learning which unfolds magic even deeper.
What lies beneath our mind and body is our soul, and she requires many sacrifices and humbling pain in order to enter her swirling realms of energetic information, the great spiral must first be walk, then limp, then crawled in libation to power humans cannot even imagine. In other words, at the greatest levels you suffer, are the greatest levels of your souls abilities. All this lays in the womb of woman and she is crippled in her maiden stages (0-30) and much of their adulthood is a path that requires healing in their 40s and 50s and sometimes even their 30s to reclaim what they lost in their youth. The magic of healing of emotions, not words is the medicines that heal her.
With all magic, even modern Hebrew (after 2000 bce), there is also the shadow or demon aspects, nowadays, such demonic forces of real living humans and their shadows may seem foreign to us, but in our culture too, often unknowingly, we still allude to shadows that keep us separate from our own shadow, such as the word “nightmare,” for example. “Mare” is not an evil spirit to suffocate sleepers by lying upon them, so if we move beyond these surface teachings, the mares are one of the shamanic terms that bring the dreams. In Slovak mythology it is said that we do not feed the horses with oats but water them with fog. This is a direct meaning of the shamanic aspects of horses which are the unbridled or uncontrolled nature of the emotions of living things and of water (emotion) of nature.
Amenta sometimes called Amente, is the Goddess of the Psychopomp, identified as Thoth, and identified with Hermes by the Greeks and later known as Hermes Trismegistos, and Mercury of the Romans, who is regarded as the founder of alchemy, hence, of course, the word “hermetic” in the sense of “esoteric, cryptic” but also, surprisingly, of “airtight.”
Indeed, the expression “hermetically sealed” derives from the fact that airtight containers were used in the Hermetic art of alchemy to collect vapors after heating substances. Such an early distillation apparatus called κηροτακίς and used by Egyptian alchemists was considered to be the invention of Mary the Jewess, a famous alchemist, said to have lived in Alexandria in the first century CE and who used to write under the pen name of Miriam the Prophetess, sister of Moses.

By Phoenix the Elder – I want to preface this article of this ceremony at Pluto’s Cave, located in Juniper Flats National Park, near Mt. Shasta… I have only done two ceremonies in the last thirty years with people outside my circle of apprentices, as a collective Dreamer (shaman). The first was the Wounded Knee areas with all the tribes, seven years before Standing Rock, in order to prepare for seven years when Standing Rock happened. The other was my group of dreamers from my ‘shut down’ Grandmother Moon page to go as a dream group to England around 42 ce and do work there. The third time is this ceremony at Pluto’s Cave.
My apprentices are the only ones who have participated with me, in all my other ceremonies. Most of my work and ceremony work since 1997 has been done alone because of the nature of my fated work, but after 2008, I decided to let them join me in ceremony if they mastered sobriety of every hallucinogen, mild like pot or more server.
This meant they had to suffer and burn off toxins for two years solid before I even talked or worked with them… burning off toxins of their previous decade or two, from any uses of any…
Occasional wine, ayahuasca, pot, synthetic drugs, alcohol, anything for pain, shamanic drugs/plants, huachuma, andachuma, aguacolla, wachuma, dmt, peyote, wine, mescaline, mushrooms, echinopsis pachanoi (San Pedro cactus), anxiety, sleep disorder, bi-polar, etc medications, shamanic plants of any kind. Basically anything that can and does alter the emotional body, soul body perception bodies and animism bodies.
That in itself, detoxing from a decade or two of even one item, is very painful because all of our organs and muscles have been saturated even with once a month or twice a month usage and the ‘reaching out’ for soothing emotions or mental things, stops completely. Pot in itself takes 9 years to clear the astral soul body and that is a very mild perception altering substance but after a decade does its damage to the astral body (soul or unified chakra body). When they start to detox, they have painful releases. Detoxing is harder than most people think once they move into detox action, its very challenging.
After they do this for 2 years, my apprentices can then talk to me and actually start to work with me as a student. Needless to say, I not only have to be extremely focused and stay in purity to deal with demons and shadows, but I have found no men warrior enough to withstand my work more than three or four months, and only a very few rare women sacrifice this type of lifestyle on a personal level of commitment to work with a real apprentice. This clear way of being, minimizes demonic energy and gives more power to the light souls. Here is a video example of the mess left from such drug/plant ceremonies…
This ceremony at Pluto’s Cave was my second one, and the next level of it’s ritual purification, the first one was two years ago and took about eight hours and was completed by me and two apprentices assisting. This second ceremony was to reinforce that first ceremony and clear out what has occurred in the cave over the last two years.
I was joined in this ceremony by Marilee NiEtain of Soul Tribe Sanctuary, and one of her patrons Laura. Certain Soul Tribe Sanctuary supporters also joined us from their home (and country) in the purification ceremony. Linda Nelson, a spiritual Healer and Phil the Elder, were present and supported with their drums, intentions and healing, and Phil also had his flute, they are both from Yreka, California.
Three of my long time Apprentices (six years or more) and a few new Students joined with a prayer or two for holding space. The two apprentices stories are at the end. Also a few patrons on my Elder Mountain Dreaming joined to add support (from their home and country).
We entered the parking lot of the cave area, just as the partial eclipse full moon was happening. Marilee’s purification rite, occur before we started, even before we walked to the actual cave. She had to go and ‘release’ in nature and had fallen. I was waiting for her to return near the car, and instinctively I started to play my drum, a blood drum (long story). I played it very strongly and loud and then stopped abruptly.
Marilee had returned back to where I was standing and said she passed out and then when I began to play my drum, she could hear it very faintly as if it were in the distant, barely hearing it, and then the sounds got louder and stronger until she was fully into this physical realm with her conscious self (my drum is really loud).
Realizing she had passed out, she said she checked herself over, a little shaken, a bleeding arm, then got up, came back over where I was standing, and said, all in all, that she was ok. I poured some of the moon water I had made the night before for the ceremony, onto her arm and it scabbed over right away.
She had gotten her purification, chord cutting and cleansing even before we left the parking area. We walked to the cave and Marilee, Linda and Phil stayed at the top ridge of the cave and held space and did what they needed to do to support. Laura had gone into the cave and then spent the remaining time during my set up and ceremony time before the drumming started, at the gateway or opening of the cave. I spent the hour and a half set up time (ceremonial purification boundary whispering, necessary for myself and the others there), before I could even begin the purification ceremony process inside the cave.
I had no apprentices helping me this time, in the physical with all my stuff, which I usually have one or two giving service and assisting to carry a drum or two or a bag. The three other elders there had to take care of their things and their strength, so it was a bit taxing at first and at the very end, but I knew once the drumming began, I would get the full surges of energy, which I did.
I also go into trance generally starting the day or night before a ceremony and will dream also, so if anyone asks me questions or tries to engage in rational thinking or present normal human things when I get started on a ceremony, I am not really there, my trance and shaman come forth, the slayer ready to do the work, my apprentices understand this but others do not. My shaman power builds a day or two before an actual ceremony and the Moon Huntress dreamer (shaman) is not the nicest person when working at remaining in the shamanizing focus for the duration.
Once we reached the rim, the others stayed above near the rim and I stepped to descend the rocky downward natural steps towards the cave, when all of a sudden, my big buffalo drum jumped out of my hand, rolled all the way down the descending hill, rolled all the way into the cave, took a left and laid down exactly where it wanted me to set up the underworld circle (trap), which had a huge stone, with a bunch of small stones laid up against it.
That was the area where my circle in the cave would be set up for the ceremony, and to push the demonic energy back down through a second underworld hole opened up by mother earth when I asked (when I began the drumming part of the ceremony). I was here at this cave for three things, the first was because of seven non-incarnated, red eyed demonic black astral bodied ones had escaped and have been roaming the wilderness between Mt. Shasta and Redding, California (which is about an hour and a half drive on the highway).
This ceremony was not an eradication of the red eyed demonic forces, it was creating an energy surge with guidance into the marked off circle I made, and then a force of pushing them down in a re-entry to a darker level of the underworld, where they would not return again. The forceful pushing would have been from the light prehistory ancestors I called and the magnetic force of pull of mother earths underworld.
When I began drumming within the first ten minutes, I heard the dark dogs of the underworld barking, loud and clear. There are guardians dogs of the underworld who are the light side of the dark, and then there are the demon dog souls of human men entrapped in the underworld where their karmic astral demon (regular demon) body remains – unless loosened by human behaviors of many kinds. And these dogs were “way to close to the veil on the other side” and I have been monitoring.
These dogs were the demonic kind, barking and the pull of the sound of my drum downward told me I was at the beginning of a specific level of the underworld that was opening. Those demons dogs have gotten closer to the in-between gate (called the veil), to here, compared to twenty years ago. The job had to be done relatively fast, so nothing escaped and the bigger seven roamers who escaped were sucked back in through the force of energy in between the veils by mother earths consciousness and movements.
I had been attacked only once by one red eyed demon three years ago at the volcano in Maui. I was between waking and sleep. Most of them at the Maui volcano, I saw them only venture out, but stayed near the opening and do not venture off that volcano. The seven red eyed black huge demonic bodies at Shasta have been venturing out much farther distances from the caves entrance… they were about 30 miles away. I saw the seven, three weeks ago near the Lake Siskiyou which is about an hour south of Mt. Shasta.
This is why I was there to do the work when Marilee and Linda began talking about 14 circles made around the cave itself and she alerted me to the issue. It set off the alarms of the seven red eyed huge demonic bodies from the underworld, and these things have no living attachments to them. All past life demon roaming in or out of the underworld, have a living incarnated human that belong together.
I only experienced one red eyed demon “living astral body” who had fully possessed a young man, who was one of the organizers “hemp” fest in Seattle in 2000. That was during the late evening and a random man showed up next to me who I knew had manifested from the light. Light and dark are always balanced and equal across the board (if its a light shadow, then there is a weaker light, etc). I was not prepared back then as my death initiations were only half completed, and then finished completely early 2017, so there was nothing I could do but walk away.
I even tell my apprentices to never engage, speak or look at red eyed demons in waking or in night dreaming because of the horrific connection of that energy, and the slow demise of ones mundane life rapidly turning into something that is not manageable and a crisis. I also had work to do at this ceremony for two clients and one apprentice. It was to sever demonic aspects that were invading their personal space and one was a family curse from a past life.
My work at the cave was to separate the clients/apprentice from what happened in their personal life with the shadow roamers causing havoc and attacks. For my apprentice – it was a red eyed demonic energy that had possessed an “ayahuasca” man who does the shamanic ayahuasca ceremonies. He wanted to bring that hallucinogen into her personal spiritual circle at an organic farm in Turkey which she belonged to. She stood up and stood against it in their circle they had when he presented about doing the plant journey for them.
She could no longer could be apart of her circle there if they chose to do it. He got extremely angry at her twice in the circles duration, she felt the rage of the demon in her empathic body (as a healer). She drove home and left the farm saying her goodbye to those she had grown close to over the last four years, and that night she was attacked by the red eyed demon in her bedroom.
The second person needed a family curse lifted and removed, and the third person was attacked after she went to Peru to do her first hallucinogenic ceremony (mescalera). I was also doing a cutting ceremony for myself from an issue that happen at Umpqua hot springs, where its not monitored nor watched by the forest service and a popular hot spot for the roaming travelers who do a lot of shamanic plants, pot etc. I sat in the springs and had gotten a bacteria that I have been doing intense detoxing for the last year and a half everyday. Its all healed, but wanted to make sure I cut chords with the origin.
Now the bigger interference… There are thousands of huge military (ufo) ships that have been roaming free at all the big volcanoes of earth, and are right across the veil since the 50s and they are the ones responsible for puncturing the gates of the underworld open through the volcanoes with their need to fuel up on the magnetic fields of these volcanoes. These are under the dominance of the telepathic ancient alien (humans) who have no soul, spirit or physical body, those were lost through millenniums, from their own karma and its final destruction of their soul and we cannot reincarnate without a soul. Many spiritual groups have many, many different names for them, chose the one you use.
What I was purging from this cave back into the underworld were no regular demons (soul shadow demons) or dark djinns (mental body astral demon bodies), or corrupted past life shadow soul roamers of incarnated humans, or even the demonic levels of humans’ darkest karma freed from the underworld from shamanic plants/drugs/pot (weekly users).
The seven who escaped the lowest levels of the underworld from Pluto’s Cave are way beyond these other levels of darkness. They are still bound by the rules of daylight (and the veils) and cannot enter our space, but at night they can cross the veils. These are solid black demons that are huge, about 14 feet tall, and ones’ in which have no jurisdiction being out of the deepest layer of the underworld at all.
The military activity behind the veil at Mt Shasta since 1988 has been sucking up the magnetic energy of Shasta itself, like all huge volcanoes on earth, and soul raping those who live in the area or huge volcanoes, in their dreams at night, hence the accumulated cloud moisture forms of the human (soul) moist cloud called the astral body aligning with Lenticular cloud moisture. In 2015, the ships (ufo) military ships (behind the veil) began moving their ships to Mt McLaughlin in Medford, Oregon, about 2 hours north of Shasta. The Lenticular clouds shows the size of the ships and will now begin to cease at Mt. Shasta, and will begin to appear at Mt McLaughlin and already have.
Mother earth is the only one who can open her underworld, not even the most powerful shamans on earth can. The military-cia operative in their cross-veil ships, here in the U.S. and the Russians and their ships and Saudi Arabia with their military (ufo) ships are the main three of earth. They all do a puncturing with electro-magnetic energy that has been busting holes into the underworld at the volcanoes, as they have at Shasta, and Maui, this took them thirty years of uninterrupted work to do it and that is starting to free the demonic energy.
I set up my altar in the cave, to attract the escaped red eyed demonic seven back into the cave, and the energy to attract also with mirrors, sharp objects (small deer antlers), water and moon water, and particular wind whispering (exorcism ancient chanting which pulls energy towards me) and then I was ready to go into my trance in-between waking and dreaming, with my drum, building the energy to lead all to that altar.
I put a circle of dried roses that I collected last week, circled it again with my staff to keep anything outside of that circle safe and lock in everything outside the rim above inward and lock out the other shadows from the cave areas. I then drew then around those two circles, with the moon water, which is a Romanian tradition.
It took about 45 minutes to drum the entire process and I asked the wind, to come into the cave, so I could feel the sensation on my body right before accumulation and then it was done, and the shit went down and mother earth closed it up and sealed it. And then it took about 20 minutes for me to do my thanks and clear my things.
Back at the car, Linda, Merilee and I talked for awhile, and they said during my drumming a big dragonfly had come (which i know whose soul that is), then they said a big yellow butterfly and a bunch of white butterflies were outside the cave. We were sitting there having something to eat after we were finished, a really loud cicada was buzzing around us and dancing a few times making sure we noticed it. That same cicada came to my window today as I was writing this article.
Cicada folklore represents the 13 and 17 year cycles (I am starting my new 13 year cycle in October 2017), and they also represent in Chinese folklore the free soul, the immortal and immortality.
Two of my apprentices assisted our ceremony and this is their share …
My Turkish apprentice: I found a nice spot outside, did the protection circle as you taught and had a bowl of spring water to receive released/resolved energies during the healing, then grounded and centered myself and set intention to holding space for your ceremony and performing a healing to help cleansing of Pluto’s Cave. As soon as i started, heard you’re drumming so powerful, and I just listened for few minutes, felt the beats in my body.
Then saw an army of scientists in the darkness, all male and wearing white lab coats. they’re just standing still, like a zombie army. Then I was in cave near you, I saw you drumming near a big fire, i watched the bright fire of purification for a while. Then had a vision of a native man, he’s in cave, hiding to the side, and stepped forward to be seen for only a moment. He’s in his thirties or early forties maybe. Has black long hair and strong face, bright eyes. His face’s painted in black, yellow and white, kind of like zigzags. I looked at him, then he stepped back to shade.
The healing took a little bit longer than an hour for me, it’s so intense at the beginning. checked the energy before i finished, it’s well. At some point during the time, I had another vision that the red eyed demon that attacked me, cracked inside out and shouted out a terrible scream, then seemed it sucked in a black vortex of the underworld and disappeared.
The next day, I took a walk in the park, all the dogs in park started to bark, one was just behind my back, a very aggressive one. i thought, “never mind, i am protected” i didn’t see it or hear its paw steps, it just growled and barked 2-3 times, then all was silent.
My apprentice Burnt Stone: Delphi Temple in Greece – I assisted by going to the Temple at Delphi (Greece) today and did ceremony. I drew a sacred protection circle and then spoke my prayers and intentions. I set the intention to join Phoenix in ceremony and to help support the ceremony at Pluto’s Cave. I also said a prayer of gratitude and honor to the prehistoric ancestors of the light who cared for this place Delphi and said a prayer for them to push out the unhealthy influence of Apollo/Dionysus cult who had taken over this place from the women of Delphi, for its health and balance if it is for the greatest good of all concerned.
I also said a prayer to help connect Delphi to Pluto’s cave in a sacred dreaming way if it is for the greatest good. And last I drummed a prayer to the Greek goddess Eris (who I have had symbolic synchronicity with) and honored her and asked humbly to become her daughter and to work with her. I drummed and when I was finished just sat peacefully.
After I was done, ten minutes later a guard (who had been blowing his whistle at people who had been crossing the roped off area) came up to me and told me it wasn’t allowed for people to play musical instruments there. Which was kinda funny because there is no visible rule of that, I think he just made it up. So I just smiled and said “ok, all finished” and he smiled and walked away. He had walked right up to where i had placed my boundary circle and didn’t cross it. So after that I picked up the circle, packed up my drum, walked around a bit and then left.
Burnt stone’s dream the night after: I woke up from my dream from last night. The big one was I woke up in the middle of the night ( half asleep/half waking state) because I felt the energy all around me shift and get very intense and the I heard in the dream a single intense dog bark. I woke up and grabbed my drum and held it by me but gradually the feeling faded and I was awake again. Then the other dream I had was just me in places with little kids trying to steal from me. And every time they stole something I had to grab it back and speak sternly to them (probably local Greek children on the dream planes).
Update: All 3 of my clients were cleared of the demonic shadows and the family within 4 days and that work is now closed. The seven red eyed demons are back in the underworld through this lava tube (the side cave, not the main one, because a new underworld opening had to be made, from where they were coming out in the main tube). I am sure those who joined us from their homes, but did not share their story can do so if they wish and I will add it to this article.

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – The video below, shows a mother and daughter in an artistic portrayal of separation. Separation of mind and emotional body, or in relationships, can leads to rejection and abandonment issues, or phobias, co-dependency and addictions of any kind. Drama-diseases as any 40 year old will tell you, arise at midlife (37-42) stronger, than any other time in our right of passages as a human being.
Inner child work is a long and slow process and can be prepared for in one’s 30s and 40s, setting up the emptiness required from very powerful and strong shaman’s soul retrievals. I have found working with people in an eight year cycle, will release karmic detoxes at much greater levels, if they prepared for the soul retrieval and can handle these levels of power needed to remain grounded. Soul journeys and healing work to together and although soul retrievals without any purification disciplines reach a certain layer, it goes much deeper with other alternative healing modalities such as rebirthing, energy work, hypnotherapy regression. These other healings allow a slow step by step process so the soul retrievals can reach their maximum impact with groundedness and balance.
When we reconnect with the fragmented parts of the self from our past, the inner child also prepares. As a dreamer (forth level of a shaman), I can have a relationship to the astral body (inner child that was fragmented) and see both the person and their ghostly astral inner child that split off. When the person has not prepared with other types of healing, the soul of the child that is split off, is not close enough in the realms to the person, to fully return.
The main problem I have seen as an exorcist, is the inner child (astral body) lives its own independent life in fear, and it lives on the dream planes close to the veil, here. It is generally separated between from the person by a shadow astral body demon) of the parent or caregiver’s shadow, when they were young. This can be past issues of abuse from the extreme to even the mild.
The layers of energetic reality that the inner child’s astral body lives in, in these terms is a living and breathing environment and unless the shaman can actually see the inner child in its soul aspect and where its at, they can then tell if its coming closer to their clients soul body or what is preventing its return. Many times shaman practitioners are good healers, who have taken shamanic classes and have a drum, but this doesn’t mean that they have suffered immense decades of death and pain like the shamans who from the realms of pain, have busted open into the out of bodies and astral travel levels of experiencing the dead aspects of living people. For those of us who do, the person must prepare with healers, for the job to be complete and this can take 8 to 20 years of committed healing work.
Since I also have gifts of clairaudio, I can hear the inner child as well, some are tricksters, some are extremely frightened, some are held separate from returning because of a demonic shadow. I can also hear clairaudio and see the dogs of the underworld when I send a human’s demon soul fragment back to the underworld. In other words, 8 or more years of healing and repeatative soul retreavals must be done for the basic shaman and shaman practitioner to get the inner child to return closer to their clients realm.
Here is an example of one of my clients who was prepared on his own healing journey for 14 years before he came to see me… A doctor was referred to me by a friend of mine and when we met the first time to discuss his issues, he was surprised at the depth. He said I have been to many healers and people in workshops, charging me thousands of dollars, and you go in there and clear what I was looking for over many years. I told him: All those others were necessary, because they prepared you for me and my work, and without that, my work would have taken years.
I wanted to share several layers here in this article about separation of soul fragmentation. It can come from this lifetime from abuse or past lives and your abuse to others and its generally one or the other. When one separates from their inner child, through life experiences or where we sold our soul, or where it was stolen or abused, all lead to fragmentation. Past life inner child or past life adult soul fragmentation separations are very different and much more dangerous because, for example, if a soul has fragmented two thousand years ago, then there is a few lifetimes that need healing through the individuals present life before those can even be considered. These scenarios go into more severe karmic pain and karmic struggles, near deaths, severe crisis etc.
Our astral body was once complete before the patriarchal war societies began to fragment clans and tribes, so we all have much healing work to do. This luminous body of ours is very bright even with a lot of karma or abuse. When we experience abuses this lifetime, in reality, this is how we pay real karma off, and people do not like when I say that. All the monster and folklore creatures that are shadowy, are just real depictions of what our real human fragmented shadow energetic souls look like in its karmic states in a story or folklore form. Its pretty ugly and sometimes frightening when its at the demonic levels of fragmentation. Real shamans must see these demonic fragments equal to the inner child’s soul body and its light. They cannot be separated.
1. The personal: When I began the more adult aspects of my shaman’s initiations after 30 years old, as a Dreamer (dreamer is a fourth of four levels of a shaman); I lost my daughter and son, because the vibration of my collapsing life (shaman’s sickness) and was rapidly approaching my fragmented and broken self. From the outside it just looked like a really bad divorce, but it was much deeper than what appeared on the surface to friends or family. Loss or death of anyone’s child brings grief, great stress or a living heartache. The first was the loss of my own children.
2. Inner child work: This crisis then led me to even deeper healing work, and my path to my own “inner child healing work” which began with consistency around 38 years old. We forget what our childhood felt and looked like as we get older and what the fear at those ages felt like. To re-feel the original wound’s trauma is part of the detoxing of inner child work before soul retrievals. We begin the healing work to remember its pain and feel it, so it can release from our emotional body.
Even small things like moving to a new home can traumatize a child, much less being abused which is high level trauma and detachment of the emotional body from the mental and physical bodies unity. When the astral body of the child leaves the physical body, we then operate on the remaining soul left in the adult. Literally its like removing a large piece of the soul cloud, and then the functioning of the inner soul with the emotional body (within) is reduced leaving the physical body vulnerable to diseases.
Childhood issues that can lead to minor or major fragmentation…
- Physical abuse, being hit or smacked by parents or grandparents
- Emotionally unavailable parents or those who withheld basic affection
- Being “punished” through kicking, shaking, biting, burning, hair pulling, pinching, scratching.
- Molestation, shown pornography, or any other type of sexual contact from a parent, relative or friend
- Children of Divorce, children of pot or alcohol addictions
- Age Inappropriate responsibilities (such as caring for your parents)
- Starving, or not in a Safe place to live
- Abandonment of any kind, big or small
- Emotional neglect, not being nurtured, encouraged or supported
- Being deliberately called names or verbally insulted or shamed
- Denigration of your personality
- Destruction of personal belongings
- Excessive demands
- Car accidents, or other spontaneous traumatic events
What is the inner child and why does it separate and fragment from us?
The inner child is like a wheel, and each year that we grow and experience any one of those concerns from the list above, and we end up surrendering (not fighting to live or give up hope) we have touched an inner child issue that is causing us pain. Many times I see this behavior all the time in people and now with social media, its extremely easy to see. Yet no one shows compassion, because they are working out the other side of the victim and perpetrator scenarios as adults.
As children our fear stay with us as adults, but they look different. We don’t kick and scream on the floor at our best friends house when we feel hurt by a random comment over dinner. Well maybe the introvert does and then expresses it later, but most people hold it in and have learned to control it, but not be ‘aware’ of ‘it’ anymore. The inner child “it” has been tampered and toned down until one gets drunk.
These issues overtakes us or circumstances in abuses in the family has been created in our family we birthed, this puts us in survival mode (shock) and people can live in great shock. Look at the survivors of Auschwitz as an example, the astral body keeps fragmenting a little at a time until we loose our energy completely and have lost the path and are now in the deep forests of our pain. Even then we can still exit, go to work and drudge our way through issues that do not heal.
The astral body fragments that partly steps out of us, at the age we were traumatized, remains outside of the body until we do the work. This is when peoples emotional body’s start to flat-line, and depression sinks in and a host of other issues like chronic fatigue etc. We are given a certain amount of our own astral life force (soul), to reincarnate with and when we are abused or hurt continually, that part of us leaves and stays outside of the realms. We can only address the original wound in order to begin to walk towards the inner child whose astral body has split off from us as we were growing and it remains outside of our body until brought back home.
But the inner child in her astral form is usually or almost always, separated from the adult self by the abusers shadow astral body. This is why its so hard to heal, the behind the scenes are not there even for really great healers and psychics. This is where a dreamer (shaman) like myself, had to be witness behind the scenes on the astral planes, seeing the inner child soul and the shadow soul in their prison (so to speak). Be that a physical or emotional abuser, who is unconscious of their shadow (and to us shamans, that the unconscious shadow is a real and living dark energetic astral soul body).
The shadow soul of an alcoholic, or shamanic drug/plant person who does peyote also has caused new problems in clans, tribes, villages and society. The darkest person in these circles is always the most charismatic one. Or an abusive parent and the parent that was in denial can still bring up old wounded feelings by an adult with inner child issues at the holidays. The wounded child is still in the realm of the past, surrounded by us in the present, and these shadow bodies do not let go of her so easily, until its safe. I have done many soul retrievals but only when people are ready, and not before when it comes to healing. In group soul journeys (winter solstice), everyone is invited regardless because its not like individual sessions.
What this means is we have to do the healing work for her or him to return (slowly). After major healing has been done to understand your own depth of your personal story and what you have to reclaim, we have to work out and heal the majority of one issue or a few and overcome them to be ready for the next phase. Self healing is full of a thousand phases. Then, this is where a shaman comes in to see who the demonic astral body is and begin to enter that realm with a fighting force as a warrior shaman to free the child in a soul retrieval. Most shaman journeys are feel good journeys, people feel supported by their book trained, school trained or conference workshop trained shamans, that is because they are getting “emotional support” for the first time in their lives, but it doesn’t mean their astral fragmented soul isn’t still out in the realms.
Past live soul fragments are much deeper and they cannot return until all parts of this life’s soul fragments have healed, and returned. This is because past life shadow fragments are older, stronger, more powerful demons when its our own. And that path requires a whole lifetime to overcome and many people do not. They can be slaves to their alcohol, sleep medications, doctors meds, pot, shamanic plants/drugs, or whatever keeps them separate from that pain of sobriety or past life demonic shadow fragment (dark soul body) and that chaos of that pain that appears. The rule is, most are totally unconscious of any of this type of past life shadow, as long as they feed themselves the illusion causing substances which only makes the shadow astral soul body eventually more powerful and one day busts through (if the person gets sober or wake up in ‘cycle’ of age).
The following is from “Union Within” and explains some of the dynamics of the inner child parenting process.
“The feeling of wanting to die, of not wanting to be here, is the most overwhelming, most familiar feeling in my emotional inner landscape. Until I started doing my inner child healing I believed that who I really was at the deepest, truest part of my being, was that person who wanted to die. I thought that was the true ‘me’. Now I know that is just a small part of me.
When that feeling comes over me now I can say to that seven year old, “I am really sorry you feel that way Robbie. You had very good reason to feel that way. But that was a long time ago and things are different now. I am here to protect you now and I Love you very much. We are happy to be alive now and we are going to feel Joy today, so you can relax and this adult will deal with life.”. . . .
“The integration process involves consciously cultivating a healthy, Loving relationship with all of my inner children so that I can Love them, validate their feelings, and assure them that everything is different now and everything is going to be all right. When the feelings from the child come over me it feels like my whole being, like my absolute reality – it isn’t, it is just a small part of me reacting out of the wounds from the past. I know that now because of my recovery, and I can lovingly parent and set boundaries for those inner children so they are not dictating how I live my life. By owning and honoring all of the parts of me I now have a chance to have some balance and union within.”
Step Processes – We do not heal these parts of ourselves until we have prepared to be here, the action part of inner child work you can do and when those are completed (and take your time), leave no stone un-turned because you will just have to repeat and go back over them anyway. Here are some good first steps which I give practices to people…
1. Connecting with your Inner Child – Acknowledge your inner child exists, treat this part of you as a loving mother would. Let him or her know that you won’t let anyone ever again treat you the way a parent or partner did. Treat him or her with kindness and respect. This is all about taking care of you, being the mother or father you never had to you. Some self-nurturing communication: I love you. I hear you. I’m sorry. I forgive myself.
2. Get out a photo of you at the age of your trauma(s) – I ask people at this stage of their journey, to put a photo of themselves on the nightstand to connect with each night and and remind themselves that they are on a real healing journey and that they are on consistent and won’t abandon themselves. This is an excellent practice for a few years before a soul retrieval.
3. Reconnect and go inward – A lot of people who enter the midlife crisis around 37 or 38 already have children or have stress in their life and overburdened at the prime of their life. Inner child work really starts at this most potent time to heal around this stage of life. Those who have abandonment or co-dependent issues will peak during this age. Reconnecting to sides of our self that we never even knew existed as adults, can change your relationship to yourself and to others. This discovery is truly life-changing whether its inner child work or any deeply devoted healing path. Having fun and returning play is also an important action that is also needed for some people to loosen up their fool to lighten some burdens.
Meditation is not an inner child work and I see a lot of suggestions for that. Emotional and Soul issues are more connected with inner child fragmentation and emotional issues that have turned into phobias, fears or addictions of any kind. Meditation if for the mind, and what we try to do with inner child work is to get deep into that emotional body first. Here are some good holistic therapies which I would say commit to, from 1 to 3 years, building upon each other if you need to go deeper.
Try them all, especially if you were molested or raped or unconscious as an adult of some of your past abuses. There are many healings out there, when you feel ready to deal with the traumas of the past, real healing work is very slow and make sure you ask your healer what types of healing they have done and do they drink or smoke pot. This makes a huge difference in your recovery time of your emotional detoxes. You don’t want to spend time having to heal and cleaning up your healers emotional body that has slipped into yours (if your an empath). Might as well get the best since you are investing in you…
* Water Therapy, also called Watsu is excellent;
* Rebirthing (5-10 ten sessions with a woman and 5-10 with a male practitioner)
* Massage Cranio-Sacral (work is very good for physically abused children)
* Energy work (any kind, except crystal healing, it fragments the emotional soul body);
* Re-connective Healing, which is a form of body soul work
As a shaman, I do not open up the underworlds or middleworlds to find the fragmented inner child or past life karmic demonic soul, mother earth is the only one who can open those realms. All i had to do was pass 40 years of death tests for her to do it. The pierce of the veil, to get an inner child, is gotten by the person who is seeking it, not the shaman. The person has prepared to meet her wounded self by working at healing all along, the wounded self with real healing work. The shaman only holds both self, the other or the group, in a protected place so they can return one inch deeper to that ultimate destination.
Some need soul retrievals for sickness, some need it for soul loss this lifetime (inner child), others can only withstand being close to the sickness of death for a few years and that is not enough time for past life soul fragment to return back home (purified, yes the dark soul of karma must be purified through intense pain to burn off karma)… I other words you have to feel the pain of people you killed two thousand or a thousand years ago, in your real body and it hurts like “hell”, that frees the soul you killed and you get to feel their pain. That is real inner child work of a past life. The Hindus say your can “breath away” your karma. Well, even a devout practice of 30 years of that is not going to pierce the veil to enter the realm of the dead.
We first have to heal the pain of our ordinary life that arises, before we can go to the next level, in other words we have to fix the broken arm, and it must be all healed before we can approach the broken body (soul work). Its all the brokenness that occurs when you open the doorways to this type of healing because its not something that is simple, its highly complex. If the person can withstand their own deep sorrow, grief and the detox changes that occur, then an inner child fragment (the astral body of the child of this lifetime) will return as it gets so close in your space, you become aware that you are ‘feeling better’. As a shaman when I know its time I will hear the child in waking (clairaudio) or at night when I dream walk when I have a more long term relationship to my clients or apprentices.
3. So to conclude, you deserve to heal your issues, start with basic support from a loving circle, a women’s circle, a sweat lodge, if that turns ugly or your intuition tells you something is not right in the group its not, move on. In the last thirty years, many leaders who are my age have never even gone to a healer, much less dedicated to a decade or two of many modalities. So move on if a circle does not support you, you will know because all they want you to do is serve them.
Having gone through this process of my own inner child work for five years and being certified in some of the practices helping my apprentices and clients do the same, I saw the deep importance of the “length of time” really requires to do real healing work that is permanent. The memory system of the emotional and soul body is highly complex and one must purify and heal all of it to have a true successful and permanent soul returned. Many times a person will do a majority of the work before they go to a shaman and that is the best scenario. Real life initiated shamans enter the purer forms of chaos and darkness, the potent accumulation, which is at the end of a healing journey, not the beginning. In our ordinary mundane life, we go in cycles to touch one more layer of pain to release. I felt such burdens lifted from me and a heaviness that I was not even aware of the longer I continued my own healing journey and the deeper I went inward.
I have turned many people away in my path because they were just not ready for a real shaman, nor did they need a shaman yet. I have referred them to shaman practitioners (healers) to help them and their real emotional, physical and mental preparations.
As a healer I am extremely devoted to my own healing, an organic life, emotional work, that has freed my soul, everyday for the last twenty-five years. I commit to this in order to walk my talk and set an example that this lifestyle (a life without medicine, antibiotics, doctors, hospitals etc.) required and still requires dedication, responsibility and hard work.
Even today, after decades of healing, its no difference, for the last 3 years I have had some unusual weight gain for no reason, because my lifestyle did not change. I am though, still in my 2nd Saturn return and anything of course is possible. My legs have been hurting and cramping and so a year and a half ago, I upped my work outs, had already been totally organic and gluten free and committed to it weekly. Nothing was changing, so I had even given up all wheat and by-products and all dairy, I had done vegan during my vision quest years but that didn’t require wheat abstinence. And still no change in the weight gain, it was odd.
With my waking synchronicity and signs getting worse by the day in my path over the last three months especially, I was seeing people in wheel chairs everywhere I went everyday and the mourning dove 10 hours a day cooing outside and knew it was critical although I was doing everything possible. I had been used to mourning doves being around in my more intense spiritual suffering of my shamanic initiations and as one of my totem – they mean “internal warnings” where owl is my external warning. But the doves have not been around for twelve years or so. I finally set an intention for my inner Dreamer to reveal both the issue and the solution. I put on my sacred necklace, a charm with the name Rose on it (both my grandmother’s names) and I drew a sacred Slavic symbol of healing on my left hand and went to go dream…
The dream that night: I am in a hospital room and a nurse comes in and takes my left hand and says: “you need a saline solution every four hours” then she shoots a needle into the top of my hand and I see bacteria appear, they are tiny, thin, and black and see about 4 of them moving under my skin. I wake up.
I get up and started doing the saline (salt water) solution drinking it every four hours and for the last two days, no more mourning doves, no more wheel chair people around me and no wasps (they were the last to my issue warning). I looked up the bacteria that matched what I saw in my dream, and it said it can came from a few things, but none of them applied except the hot springs. Then immediately I knew where the source was…
Three years ago I went to the upper north Umpqua River Hot Springs and hiked there with my apprentice and thus far it was the most beautiful hot springs I have seen in pictures or having gone to. I could tell that this place had many local and wandering drinkers, drug users and heavy pot smokers, a defined party place and when we got there, the partiers were even drinking and smoking pot in the hot springs itself.
When I sat in the water that day I could feel it was sick and saturated from years of drugs, pot, alcohol, shamanic drugs usage and the small campground too which we chose not to stay at looked black energetically. I go to hot springs as part of a purifying process for my health because when you rely on no medicines or antibiotics or healthcare as a way of life, one gets pretty good at understanding even the smallest of changes in their body or the environment.
But I went in for an hour anyway and shouldn’t have, because this hidden bacteria entered my body that day and its been causing the weight gain, even though I tried every avenue but the “invisible” one.
Through the three years and it’s passage of time I was having more issues (six months ago), I developed a knot or large bump on the bottom of my foot and my legs were hurting regardless of what I did to alleviate. So I went to an acupuncturist who said the the knot was sitting in the kidney area and the session relieved some pains in my legs and the bump reduced half the size.
My inner dreamer responded well, as it should because I also dream for my clients, students and apprentices health issues. I have no judgment about the party people, I only make a deeper commitment to be more aware of hot tubs and hot springs now and keep doing what I have learned to do so long ago, love and respect myself with healthy boundaries regardless of what others think or how they respond in negative ways to that… in fact the whole world responds in negative ways, but has much compassion for physical sickness only. I have great compassion for all three, emotional, mental and physical issues.
Water is Life!
