The Sacred Art of Ritual Smudging
By Alisa Battaglia
Ritual allows us to enter sacred space with awareness to flow. There is often a point of focus at the center of a ritual in present time that helps us to reclaim our spirituality. Performing ritual is simply a tool to reawaken this aspect of our being because in it provides a signal to the body to begin physiological and energetic changes to initiate change by aiming for an altered state of consciousness conducive to self-exploration and reprogramming. The ritual of smudging can be defined as “spiritual house cleaning.” It refers to passing one self or an object through sacred smoke as a means of purification, which is an energetic process.
Shamanic smudging ritual is an age-old tribal tradition used for centuries by the native people of both North and South America, European peasants and Siberian shamans to open the doors of the soul to the spirit world. They burned certain herbs and incense as a way of gaining access to the soul and power of plants for spiritual, ceremonial, and magical use. Certain plants when burned release a high vibrational energy through the fragrance and their smoke is used as an offering to create harmony and peace, purification and healing protection of physical and spiritual bodies, banishment of negative energies and creation of sacred space. When the herbs are burned it is thought that the soul of the plant is released to aid its energies for a particular invocation. In theory, the smoke attaches itself to negative energy and acts as a conduit by taking negative energies with it as the smoke clears and releases it into another space where it is regenerated into positive energy.
Sacred Herbs used in Smudging
The plant is the teacher, the true authority on which heals or is best for magic. There are certain plants that are held in high esteem that are agreed upon in most traditions. The smoke from sacred plants and herbs traditionally used to purify are tobacco, sweetgrass, sage, and cedar. However, the types of herbs used with their many local varieties may vary as purposes overlap and change by tradition and personal preferences.
In many traditions, shamanic smudging involves a four directions ceremony or prayer, which anchors protection in a sacred circle or sends specific kinds of smoke or prayers into the four directions. Different tribes, Covens and Shamans have different smudging prayers that program the smoke to do a specific action. In general, smudging is used to purify and cleanse spiritually, call for balance and harmony, to aide in divination, invoke spirits, healing powers and to carry prayers further into the Universe.
Traditional smudge sticks are tied in a bundle for easier handling. Some herbs are used loose or braided like Sweetgrass. The bundles are usually handmade and prepared using traditional methods from the finest-quality sacred herbs which are 100% pure and grown without chemical synthetics or petroleum distillates, which is important since the smoke is inhaled by default. Smudge sticks are used for ceremonial purposes, offerings, or simply to recreate the ancient aromas for their aromatherapeutic properties.
Tobacco (ah-say-ma) No other plant is endowed with such qualities, which is why pure tobacco is used in American Indian rituals. Tobacco from cigarettes is not used for ritual use because it is adulterated, as it is filled with pesticides and chemicals that cause cancer.
SAGE can be used for general purposes. The word sage or salvia comes from the Latin word salvare, which means “To Heal.” Sage has long been used in “smudging” ceremonies to promote purification, protection, longevity, and immortality. Studies have shown that the smoke of burning sage literally changes the ionization polarity of the air. Its element is air.
~Desert Sage is one of the most sacred herbs among Native Americans used to purify the mind, body, and spirit before prayer, meditation, ritual or ceremony and to purify sacred items such as pipes, magical tools, tarot decks and eagle feathers. This sage is great to cleanse an area, the house and for aura cleansings. The scent of desert sage is somewhat sharp, light and refreshing.
~White Broadleaf Sage is excellent for meditation, divination, smudging, cleansing and purification. Broad leaf sage is considered the king of all sages. It is prized over all the sages for its strong aromatic properties.
Cedar was offered to the fire to smudge the lodge and people. Its smoke is wafted to ward away sickness.
Sweetgrass is excellent for cleansing sacred space that helps us to center ourselves and is traditionally believed to invite good spirits. Sweetgrass is a rare grass which is found growing wild in very few places. It has a sweet and light fragrance that does not last for long.
Herbs can be burned singly or in combination with each other. A second herb is used to bring in whatever influence is needed.
Pine Resin & Sage (either desert sage or white broadleaf sage) is a good combination that covers all four magical elements of air, fire, water and earth. This combination is appropriate for general use, cleansing, ceremony and ritual.
Cedar & Sage provides the perfect balance for cleansing and enlivening an atmosphere.
Common Herbs used in Smudging
Here are some general uses for the different herbs often used for smudging.
Copal Gold Resin, holy incense used by the peoples of Mesoamerica. It is traditionally used as incense in divinatory and cleansing ceremonies. The resin contains aromatic chemicals called terpenes, which make it volatile and flammable. It was used by Mayan shamans prior to ingesting mushrooms. Its elemental is primarily fire and water, but can also be used for four-element general purposes. When burned, the scent is sweet, resinous, slightly woody, mildly earthy and spicy.
Myrrh Resin was used by the ancient Egyptians in rituals of healing and passing. It is one of the ingredients they used to embalm bodies. The resin is gathered from the almost leafless Middle Eastern shrub called the Commiphora Molmol. It is useful for spirituality, meditation, happiness, release, transformation, strength, confidence and stability. Its elemental is primarily earth, but can also be used for four-element general purposes. The scent is a piney and very earthy that produces a lot of smoke when burned.
Frankincense Resin is used extensively in meditation and healing and is my very favorite. It is used in numerous religious traditions such as the Catholic Church. Its scent is believed to confer divine blessing. Its elemental is primarily fire, but can also be used for four-element general purposes. Frankincense comes from the resin of an African tree and produces a rich, dense smoke when burned.
Pinon Resin was used by Native American cultures for its spiritual and healing properties that are cleansing, strengthening and warming. It is used to refresh the senses and revive a tired soul. Its elemental is primarily fire, but can also be used for four-element general purposes. The fragrance is pleasant and meditative and when burned it produces a thick stream of smoke.
Juniper was used in ancient times for ritual purification of temples. Its smoke is believed to aid clairvoyance and stimulate contact with other worlds. It is also stimulative and therefore effective in reviving a tired body, mind or spirit. Its elemental is primarily fire, but can also be used for four-element general purposes. The scent is sharp and piney and was burned during the Plague to resist disease.
Lavender is useful for attracting peace, happiness and restful sleep. It reduces depression, grief and sorrow and aids in meditation, manifestation and divination. It is traditionally associated with fairies and elves. The element is primarily air. The scent is a refreshing and light aromatic.
Yerba Santa Leaves are used for meditation and divination. It is thought to enhance psychic abilities, magical protection, healing and spiritual strength.
Hibiscus Flowers are often used in divination and psychic communication. The flowers are excellent for rejuvenating the senses and restoring life force. The elementals are water and fire. The scent is invigorating and sharp and lasts for a long time after burning.
Rose Flowers and Petals is used for meditation, divination, increasing psychic abilities and communication, contacting powers and beings in other dimensions. Traditionally the rose is associated with attracting love, conferring peace, stimulating sexual appetites and enhancing beauty. The element is primarily water. The scent is heavy, warm and aromatic with a hint of sharpness that lasts a long time after burning.
How to Smudge
Smudging is very simple. The pointed end of the herbal smudge bundle is lit while held over a heat-proof bowl filled with a bed of sand or gravel or an abalone shell. It can take a while to get the stick really smoking, but once the bundle is ignited and smoldering, gently wand the bundle or waft the smoke around the room, object or body. If the herb is loose blow the smoke or use a feather to circulate the fragrant smoke around the room or person while invoking forces or saying a prayer for a special need. When the ritual is complete, inhale a little smoke to purify your insides. Do not asphyxiate yourself. People often feel more relaxed, lighter and brighter after smudging. By allowing the purification and cleansing properties of herbs to clear personal items, the body, or environment, the space is created for new awareness and for a new direction to take place.
~To smudge the body, stand with the legs hips distance apart and arms out at shoulder height which makes it easy to weave the wand through. Hold the smudge stick 8-10 inches from the perimeter the body. Traditionally, the heart area is first to be smudged since the heart is the corridor into the spiritual planes. Begin by fanning the swirls of smoke around the body’s aura starting at the heart and then down the front of the body to the feet. Smudge the bottom of the feet and work upward towards the back and over the head and face back to the heart. Follow the perimeter of the body and make sure both the front and back of the body is smudged. Direct the smoke and give special attention to areas of stress and imbalance in relation to the individual spirit-body. Make your invocation or prayer as you do so.
~ For the living environment start at the door and slowly walk in a clockwise direction around the perimeter of the room paying particular attention to sharp corners such as door frames, the corners and top of walls where negative energy gets stuck and any window frames.
? We can also smudge any medicine or magikal tool that will be in use such as pipe, jewelry, ceremonial outfit, etc.
~ Smudging for meditation often produces a deeper and longer-lasting state of relaxation and contemplation. For best results use a charcoal burner or inflammable receptacle or an incense stick. Light the herbs and enjoy the scent as you meditate.
When to Smudge
Smudging ourselves daily can be very helpful in keeping balance and in maintaining a peaceful state of being, especially before meditation. Specific times to smudge are when we have been around people who are ill, depressed, fearful, angry or who are generally emotionally unbalanced. Also, when we feel blue or depressed, have been under much stress or after an argument, in which case the environment should also be cleared as well as the auric field of the person.
In a group, circle, ceremony, or lodge it is a good practice to smudge each person. Traditionally we do this by starting from the East and holding the smudge stick or receptacle lit while each person bathe themselves in the smoke and follow the process described above. However, smudging has been adapted to the need through intuition. Smudging can also be used to charge energy into a room to bring positive influence. When the ritual is complete inhale a little smoke to purify your insides. Gently blow out the flame or stab it into sand, but make sure the smudge stick is out, as it has a tendency to ignite. Never leave the bundle unattended.
“Tobacco was a gift of the Four Manido (Spirits of the Four Directions). It was the father of Nanabush who gave the tobacco (ah-say-ma) and shared the custom of smoking with his son after their epic battle in war, as a symbol of peace. Nanabush in turn passed on the custom to the Anishnabe as a ceremony. Thereafter, the Anishnabe smoked the Pipe of Peace before great councils, after war, and before other ceremonies. The Anishnabe adopted the custom and made it part of their daily lives to compose their minds and spirits. It is said that it will chase away feelings that are bad or negative and bring on thoughts that are good or positive.
In the medicine wheel, which we convey as the wheel of life, there are Four Directions. When we are born, life begins in the East. The teenage years are in the South. Then mid-life is in the West. When we reach the North, we are grandmas and grandpas and nearly ready to go to the Spirit World as we have done our many deeds on Mother Earth. The journey does not end in the North because we go to the Spirit World and then the cycle continues.
We gain knowledge with our tobacco (ah-say-ma) and we grow spiritually. Our hearts feel and our spiritual eyes have to see what our Creator wants us to learn. We feel the knowledge in our soul, and we know it comes from our Creator. When we pray, we get answers, then we are nurtured and we grow spiritually.” From the book of legends and stories, Ojibwa Heritage By Basil Johnson.

As I walked contemplatively with my guardian dog, Diamond, under a sky of gray and booming thunder threatening rainfall and streaks of sun shining heavily upon my tanned skin, my mind began to resonate with the vibration of life around me, as I listened bird songs, frog bellows, wind in the sway of trees and the beautiful offerings of flowers. Aligning with the environing energies I began my invocations and prayed for Earth healing around the oil spill that has destroyed precious wetlands and ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico.
In such a calm quieted state I began to feel a most impressionable response in my upper chakras. It became so clear in my heart rather than in my intellectual knowing, that the basic theme in the evolutionary process of unfoldment is one of relationship. Everything living is connected, each with its specialized instinct and purpose in the great chain of life, no matter how small or minute we think it to be compared to our own existence. In all the encompassing feeling, I could see what a beautiful, vibrant, colorful, active, teeming world of life we live in. Such magnificence, grace and beauty!
I was shown that everything in the manifest universe from the macrocosm to the microcosm possesses an etheric or energy form, albeit subtle and intangible. That the etheric body that underlies the solar system, planetary bodies, the earth body, and human bodies down to the subhuman kingdoms in nature, are composed of interlocking and circulating lines of force that emanate from one or many of the planes of consciousness and areas of consciousness of our planetary Life. I saw how the lines of energy and interlocking streams of force are related to the seven focal points (chakras) in the etheric bodies and their relation to certain incoming Kosmic energies. When Love is the unifying agent its lines force form a beautiful lighted matrice.
Then I saw how the many gaps in human consciousness such as fear, limitation and ignorance act as agents of miscreation by weighing the etheric underpinnings down and congest the circulating lines of force. This miscreation conditions the human and planetary etheric bodies into lower levels of light.
It occurred that wherever our head, heart and throat chakras are in consciousness, is our relation to the distributing agencies of Higher Spiritual forces. Everything is related to consciousness and everything is impressed or affected and awakened by the corresponding higher agent of consciousness. For instance, in the individual it is the personality graduating to Soul awareness and then towards the higher unification with Spirit. On a biological level, it is the hierarchy of humanity over animal, plant & mineral kingdoms. Humanity is a higher agent to the lower Kingdoms in Nature because it dominates control over the manifestation of their life expression. It has sidestepped the Stewardship role to one of “Species Supremacy.” Humanities relationship to these life forms requires tremendous healing due to gross misuse of force. The heart-mind or Soul aspect must awaken and begin to control the personality.
Continuing with the line of clarity, I saw that humanity must rise to its highest potential and that in order for the human race to respond constructively to higher spiritual processes, that the soul of humanity must waken to itself in order for the soul of Mother Earth to shift into evolutionary alignment as a sacred planet. Upliftment is a symbiotic process because all of life is connected via the planetary etheric body, but with consciousness being the only difference and its line of expression. Since the human etheric body is an integral part of the planetary etheric body, it is responsive to the free distribution of the many circulating energies at our current Kosmic disposal. The third eye is the focusing agent of those energies for the upper three chakras – the upper triadal complex.
As potent reservoirs of force, humanity has the power to close the gaps and disconnects in consciousness by building bridges of interrelationship and interplay between all facets of Life. Bridges serve as platforms of unification between consciousness paradigms that supports others into the higher dimensional system of New Earth energy. Let it be a mantra to leave no hu-man behind, as it is the collective consciousness that requires the leap in consciousness.
Such is the focal point of thousands coming together in Global Communion and with other Intention Groups that join together and serve as unified healing platforms to consciously co-create in building lines of force in order to heal gapped and torn areas of the human mind and planetary etheric grid. As the filaments of the grid are rewoven and mended, divine circulatory flow is restored uniting both energies into a living fabric of Divinity.
Our united task is one of reaching critical mass, a numbers game where enough heart-centric individuals focus attention on the patterns of perfection for the New Earth to enable a vibrational shift enlightening the grid of the planetary etheric body and all her inhabitants.

MASS CONSCIOUSNESS GRIDS Part 1
By Alisa Battaglia
“The outer web of musical light created the inner earthly one and held it there in its dance of tension. It is a connecting feeding mesh (like an electric grid of humanity).” ~Doris Lessing
The energetic expression of the principles of creation is a template of geometric proportion. As an outer web of musical light, that spans the entire multidimensional universe grids of light form in the linking up with the subtle web network surrounding other planetary bodies. Luminous strands of light intersect at the crossings producing focal/nodal points of light that create concentrated fields of force that are vortexual in nature. Together the subtle light pattern forms a grid and with the vortexual/nodal or power points act as the holding centers that produce the informing network of inter and intra-communication across planetary timelines.
The stratification of grid templates from spirit to matter is an interdimensional metamorphosis in the passage from one plane of existence to another – the bridge between mind and physical matter for both the planet and humanity. This stepping down of worlds within worlds through Earths gradations of fabric density from the etheric, the electrical, to the gaseous, fluid and the denser material, affects each level from the very sublime to the dense.
Keep in mind that the purpose of the web network or grids are to serve as a guide or etheric blueprint for organization that ensures proper distribution and alignment of the needed “elemental components,” which are the building blocks for creation – a template for its construction and purpose of existence. Life force energy and the many sonic frequencies maintain an effective energetic phase relationship of the planets frequency spectrum, both inside the biological body and outside it, in a constellative connection with the Earth’s Organic prototypal design of energy and light laid out upon Her surface. This foundational informing network with its own focal points of communication pathways serves as a bridge that transfers positive evolutionary energies between our planet’s physical and energetic manifestations. The Organic Grid Network (OGN) is the mediator/spiritual interlink for the blending of Kosmic and terrestrial energies in consciousness spiritually irradiating the landscape by distributing the vibrations of Love and Light for the activation of the seed crystal carried within each human heart.
The OGN threads in with the human energy body whose webstrings radiate back into the environment the assimilated experience of incoming external stimuli through the language of feeling or sensation. This allows us to plug into the planetary mind and commune with the heart of Nature to create the intended Earth paradise through the cultivation of the seed crystal. This interlinking is the harmonious fusion or blending of Kosmic and terrestrial energies in human consciousness exercising divine light potential. It is how to ground Spirit into matter (mater/mother) or form.
Earth’s Organic Grid Network is a paramount Spiritual phenomenon. For “millennia”, the planet has been under assault via the use of the ancient art of mystical sciences and its mathematical language to supplant planetary destiny by manipulating the Master electromagnetic spectrum geared to the consciousness and life support needs of humans, Nature, and the biosphere. Interception and recalibration of the sonic grid system via tone modulations has steered Earths and its inhabitants with creative mental programming into a de-evolutionary spiral away from creating an Earth Paradise for quite some time.
The synthetic reality produced by altering timelines has provoked much interest in the field of Grid Engineering. Architecture, manifested etherically and or physically built on the face of the planet alters the structure of space itself by modifying the space-time geometric matrix giving the “illusion of form and distance.” Focal points are recreated and recalibrated and a holographic synthetic virtual reality is born. A virus embeds into Earths nervous system pulsing its synthetic frequencies throughout the veins of culture. This syncopation and disconnection of the psyche from the ground of Being in Nature rewrites life codes into a synthetic life existence – inducing the human Soul into automaton.
The idea of manipulating matter by intersecting fields of force and inverting Natures energetic flows by damming them, altering timelines to manufacture a negative feedback loop that siphons the generative force of planetary life has provoked much controversy in the field of Grid Engineering. Rerouting the interface of Earths Organic Grid with the technosphere has produced an astral grid highway. Collectively we are born into a preconstructed paradigm or Matrix and conditioned into a repetition compulsion at the Soul life that results in a vicious cycle of addictive consciousness at the level of personality. The technospheric grid to keep us plugged into it via chronic bombardment of fear, the provoking of self-doubt, the celebration of aberrations that turns virtue into vice and twists truth into dualistic thinking. These effects ensure the continued aliveness of the astral realm by tethering our energy bodies at the 5th to the 7th dimensions to feed the astral realm in order to disconnect our psyches from the ground of Being in Nature. Low frequency vibrations keep humanity in a “Holding Pattern” – a phase lock or entrainment pattern. The high vibrations of presence, positivity, joy, love, and spontaneity center our reality with Truth of what is real through self-observation and direct experience.

Women Stand For Life
Message Received While Communing with Nature
By Alisa Battaglia
“Step up Female Warriors
You are called to form the Circle of Life.
Women, it is your time to Defend the Life Ring.
There is a reversal.
Men stand with the children.
It is now your time to protect and guide them.
Women step up to the Plate of Power.
You are called to the inner circle to stand for the community of life.
Hold within your inner sanctum, peace, beauty and cooperation to reconnect the circle of life.
Get ready to journey in a whole new way!
Women gather your kin behind you for a conscious empathic leap –
one of great magnitude into the spheres of the Heart.
Let your Heart and Imagination guide you into the realms of possibility.
Think expansively as only what is imagined can be co-created.
The family unit is reconfiguring. We are called to circle 3 times.
Women hold the ring of Power at the center for coherence.
Adolescents stand with younger ones around the Women.
It is you that stands at the precipice of the past and the future
to keep ignited the flame of desire, to amplify the power of life affirmative change in the Now.
Men uphold the outer ring to protect and heal the Family Tree of Life.
It is now that your power must soften to penetrate the Divine Heart…
… to be guided out of insanity, mayhem and blood.
TOGETHER hold the Circle of Life in the
Collective Heart of our Divine Mother ~ Gaia Sophia.
Amplify the power of the empathic Heart that it permeates the entire Earth field and radiates beyond its parameters messaging
to the Uni-verse that “We Stand for ALL Sentient Life.”
We must NOW protect what we Love, what we cherish!
Let the Power of Earth undulate through you
and let the Power of the Spirits move you to right action
grounding Spirit into matter (Mother) through your Heart
and into the Heart of the Divine Mother.
Trust the Spirit in Nature to guide you towards right process
in the Celebration of All life…cocreating a New Eden.”
All sentient life is generated through the power and intelligence of the electromagnetic universe. Without magnetics, there would be nothing to hold the universe together. Magnetism is the agency of attraction of certain substances caused by the movement of electrical charges.
Such transduction occurs via galactic currents that contain packets of universal encodements received in a stepping down evolving creation process that intelligently sustains the community of Earths biosphere and her geophysical energies. For example, environmental energy is transformed within a shared matrix into electrical or neural energy for assimilation by the brain-nervous system. Since all matter is electrical, information is gathered in the elements, plants, and trees for assimilation and resonance with the principles ordering the universe.
Ancient sensory wisdom understands these emergent self-organizing systems as autogenesis and directly experiences this self-regulating action of intelligent serpentine currents from within the Kosmic Heart, the Galactic armature or Pleroma, as the spiritual laws that govern the uni-verse. The cyclic patterns held within these currents of life energy reveal the perpetual renewal of the life force – how life evolves, creates, and sustains. These vibrating energies express through the etheric grid system with its lei lines, the prototypal design of Earth’s exterior skeletal energy and light structure. It is the primary light and energy matrix, creating, enveloping, and maintaining planet Earth, our Gaia-Sophia. The etheric planetary grid is the forgotten nexus that connects all things and provides to all organisms, living frequencies, and Nature’s essentials so that each may thrive. Thus, this subtle non-verbal communication system of the planet is a trustable interdependent reality whose natural instinct is to thrive, balance, nurture, cooperate, self-regulate, and regenerate without waste. It is the spiritual link for blending Kosmic and terrestrial energies and the pervasive means for harmonious fusion of the energies of the solar system in human consciousness.
Our lives as humans on Earth are breathed within the grid mediated parameters of the astrophysical center of our local solar system grid – the Sun. The Sun mediates through the grid enveloping Earth. Since we live within the Earth grid, we can directly harness these intelligent life streams via our molecular bodies and human consciousness vibrating our electromagnetic-Life-light spectrum received through daily interface with Nature, like a unified tuning fork.
A meditative interface with Earth’s grid offers keys of experiential knowledge or “divinization of the Earth’s secrets” via the Seven Hermetic Principles that underlies all manifestation. The Principle of Mentalism in that ALL is Infinite Mind; The Principle of Correspondence mirroring that what is below is likened unto that which is above and vice versa; The Principle of Vibration where nothing rests, everything moves and vibrates; The Principle of Polarity that insists everything has a pair of opposites; The Principle of Rhythm with its ebb and flow, peaks and troughs; The Principle of Causation that shows every effect has its cause and is never by chance; and The Principle of Gender where everything has its masculine and feminine aspects. The somatic body mindful of these keys and breathing meditatively with love from the Kosmic Heart, which is the fundamental energy behind light and matter, completes the intended divination process of Grounding Spirit into matter, activating our divine intelligence and gnosis of this inseverable nexus between the Earth, Kosmos, and humanity. As we harmonize and enlighten the Earth, we reciprocally do so somatically. As above, so below; as within, so without.
With deep immersion in Nature, we can acquire insight into the planetary thought matrix by harnessing the vibrations of Love and Light distributed from the Kosmic Heart that spiritually irradiates the etheric grid with positive evolutionary energies and by extension, human consciousness. This two-way swinging door of subtle electromagnetic interface between higher, nonphysical stellar energies and the material embodiment of them in the Earth and human body opens within us dormant sense faculties of expression. There are whole ranges of frequency transmission capabilities open to us when we attune our bodies like an antenna or tuning fork to the Spiritual forces in Nature. As we calibrate planetarily in terms of frequency, we gradually attune into transmissions held within the master electromagnetic spectrum geared to the consciousness and life support needs of humans and the biosphere. Transmission occurs through direct contact, rather than through the spoken word. There are many channels to telestically rapport through.
Keep in mind that the Earth is the Garden of Eden for a mutually supported human-Earth evolution. The ancient mythos of Gaia-Sophia explains our human and earthly origins revealing the framework and context as a Kosmological event. Earth is an embodiment of a Divine being, Sophia (Greek for wisdom) and that all components of the sensory world are aspects of this Divine being and wholly open to us. In other words the Earth is alive, speaks to us through the intuitive nature. Intelligently interacting and cooperating with Natures’ etheric electromagnetic grid we can harmonize these incoming streams against the chaotic entropic energy fields created by negative thought forms of resident humans, intrapsychic forces and frequency modulation devices to maintain the bio-psychic health of humanity and Nature. Ponder that the mind is electromagnetic and requires the magnetic Earth to maintain sanity. The quote by Aborigine “Narritjin Maymuru Yirkala” says it best, “We belong to the ground. It is our power and we must stay close to it or maybe we will get lost.” Thus, the biopsychic grounding in Nature is an open-ended connection like an umbilicus forming a living bridge between the sacred Earth beneath us and the Kosmic realm above us. The human electric body or etheric nervous system requires an interface with Nature, i.e. grounding in order to anchor creative life force energies to produce masterful alignment or congruency between what we think, feel, say and do as integral co-creators, otherwise we are easily manipulated into cognitive dissonance. See my Grounding Synthesis exercise, “Ground, Center, Expand” (Battaglia©2012). http://integrallifewellness.com/ConsciousLiving/EnergyHealth.htm#groundsynth
Meditative interfacing with the Earth’s grid reconnects instinctual human survival skills to include our conscious use of electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the basic force in the universe that nutriments the biological body with increased immunity through Natures health giving life flows and develops a moral sense through a conscious re-alignment with the primordial Wisdom of the environment via observation and teachings of Nature as a touchstone for truth. The language of Nature is non-verbal and sensory. Subsequently, humanity is empathically rooted in Nature at birth and all the sensory faculties are in tact and only require conscious development. However, disconnect cuts off the natural sense faculties, which reroute or deviate into synthetic sensory pathways and virtual realities not organic to the mind of Nature. Allowing Earth to teach, to open the sense faculties, and authentically engage us with natural life forms fortifies the reciprocal link between body-mind, heart, and Nature. This link offers a consensual relationship that gives us permission to feel when we have been seduced to live the synthetic existence of a linear five-sense reality with its mechanical creations. Be mindful that a total disconnect is not without some form of suffering, as dis-eased states call to our attention a lack of alignment with the forces in Nature.
In colossal ways humanity has strayed from Nature, however, actively developing our inner nature’s sensory language through the Nature’s System Thinking Process (NSTP) webstring attraction model evolves the sense faculties, grounds the somatic body, and heightens and expands perceptions in the psyche for whole-self wellbeing. The body and psyche transform when “consciously activated” in communion with Nature and grounded into Earth’s electromagnetic energies. We liberate from the faulty patterns of conditioning that produce fear, confusion, and doubt. Aligned with Natures wisdom we make the necessary corrections to restore the “Rights to Nature” in ourselves as extensions of the natural world.
For instance, we can communicate with the atmospheric body of the Earth via microtubular conduits or electromagnetic tethers that wind endlessly into hyperspace. Paracelsus called these conduits “iliastri” – threads of star matter, which are encoded with kosmic DNA. These strands of bio-spiritual information anchor life more deeply into the somatic body and Soul. The soul connects to the Earth and when we connect with our soul through immersion in Nature, the soul overrides the Archontic ego implant that separates soul and spirit from its Source and origins in reality.
When communing with Nature, the ego dissolves, enabling us to sense these information strands or webstrings that emanate outward from all living forces and transfer information to help delegate the procession of Nature’s living frequencies with greater precision at both the subtle and physical levels. Following is an easy way to experience the joy, serenity and clarity that Nature connection offers using my simple Grounding Synthesis exercise, “Ground, Center, Expand” (Battaglia©2012) that promotes whole self wellbeing by bridging gaps in consciousness and clears the bio-etheric body of static energies through Earth’s electro-magnetism.
The natural feeling function between humanity and Nature expands as the hundreds of receptors on the body registered as felt senses assimilate the frequencies of energy flows that cohere negative energies, amplify awareness, and increase empathic sensitivities within the Self and the living environment.
