Our mind is a sacred garden, at times infiltrated by entities who aim to pilfer the precious reserves of our energy; our energy being the soul spark that is the seat of our existence. These entities can be organic, inorganic, mechanized, or artificial in consciousness. Do we have what it takes to discern the difference between them during our encounters? Do we have the clarity to know when we are being predated upon? Can we employ antiparasitic measures to free ourselves from the many things that leach on our thoughts, energy, and emotion?
The adept Shaman and Shamanka will eventually be faced with the trials of his or her spiritual sobriety, strength, and endurance. These trials happen often during monumental sweeps of ascension, in which the Shaman and Shamanka must face the truths of what happens beyond the Veil. As the Veil thins and the curtain is drawn back, we see, to our amazement, just how deep the rabbit hole goes in matters of collective conscious coherence.
In the far reaches of interdimensional time/space, we not only discover we are not alone, but that we are highly sought after, and often fought over, because our souls and the energy they produce are invaluable sources of specific frequencies of light. We in essence, are Homoluminous beings, or beings of light. We are master creators and manifesters, and the idea generation we are capable of can be used intrinsically by ourselves, and at times, by others influencing us. If the mind can be infiltrated and harvested by predatory parasitic entities, it can be manipulated and coerced to manifest things by their will.
Like typical parasites, their innate intention is not to destroy, harm, or sicken their chosen host. Rather, the intention is to feed from the host, while remaining undetected. Predatory parasitic entities are careful to avoid detection which requires the necessity to assimilate with the Shaman, and mirror him, to appear as an ally of sameness. Assimilation is a slow-moving process, one that could take years, if not lifetimes. It is a process in which two become one, converging with a type of “hive-mind”, in which the hosts thoughts appear to come from within, rather than an outer influence.
The Shaman is challenged to differentiate what comes from him, and what comes at him. Sometimes this can take a long while to even notice there is a difference at all. Sometimes, the bigger challenge is shaking apart the unnatural codependency that the Shaman has developed with the hive-mind to be independent thinking without influence of outer entities at all. This is where the Shaman steps into the unknown, alone.
The Shaman evolves when he decides his best foot forward is disciplining his own ego mind, and scanning his telepathic receptors for thought forms that don’t belong to him. These external thought forms, which could inadvertently misdirect him or put him in danger, show up as red flags, and the Shaman learns how to identify them and deflect them. If a parasitic entity discovers that the Shaman has recognized friend from foe, it can respond in a number of ways. These entities either create distractions, offer tempting rewards for continued symbiotic partnership, or choose to cut their losses and abandon the slavery project altogether. Typically, the first two options are exhausted at length before abandonment is chosen.
Distractions come through the form of manipulating events or the physical environment of the Shaman which takes their attention off of their suspicions. This could come in the form of sudden chaos, unexpected change that requires immediate attention, or events that cause visceral or strong emotional reactions. These distractions keep the Shaman from having or making the time to enter into ceremony for self-protection, working in ritual, going into deep state meditation, or traveling astrally to receive important insight into his situation. By example, how many of us plan to do those things, but something happens to stop it?
Parasitic entities often try to keep fellow Shamans apart from one another, in an attempt to isolate them and keep them from solving their issues or having their questions answered. For example, texts or calls to each other might be sabotaged and not go through. Appointments could be cancelled. Sudden inclement weather could stop them from meeting in person, and so on.
In a way, it would seem as though these distractions are consequential, and that the Shaman may question exactly why they’re happening, or who is really behind the curtain of the Matrix to have put him in harms way to begin with. And that is when this type of intervention by the entity could backfire. If the Shaman no longer trusts his thoughts or the information he is receiving from what would appear as higher counsel, the entity may switch gears and make itself visible for the sake of calling a truce. This is when the entity may approach the Shaman with an offering that could appear heavenly or too good to be true, which ultimately could keep the Shaman enslaved to its will.
The trial of the Shaman is completed in success when he employs rites of passage for the entities he chooses to work with, or any who approach him either in plain sight or in disguise. He learns how to test entities, protect himself from deception, and lead himself out of danger. He knows how to exercise careful objectivity and skepticism, while learning the art of personal concealment, shapeshifting, camouflage, and defensive magick. He becomes his own gatekeeper to his mental body, and engages in telepathic communication at will on his terms.
The Shaman knows his value, and works to defend the honor, safety, and freedom of fellow soul sparks of light. He is a liberator of those enslaved, even if they don’t realize they aren’t free.
