Thumbled Down

Humiliation

Humiliation is [an attack on a person through] the abasement of pride, which creates mortification, or leads to a state of being humbled or reduced to lowliness or submission. It is an emotion felt by a person who feels his social status has been (deliberately) decreased. Humiliation can be brought about through intimidation, physical, verbal or psychological abuse, mistreatment or trickery, or by embarrassment if a person is revealed to have committed a socially or legally unacceptable act. Whereas humility can be sought alone as a means to de-emphasise the ego, humiliation must involve other person(s), though not necessarily directly or willingly.

Humiliating is often used as a way of asserting power over other people, and is a common form of oppression or abuse used in a police, military, or prison context, (most reported to happen) during legal interrogations or illegal torture sessions. Many now-obsolete public punishments were deliberately Continue reading

Waters of Ye Maya

Yemaya, The Mother of Earth
By Yamaya Cruz, 2011 [Edited]

Humanity started in Africa. Everyone human being can trace his or her lineage back to our mitochondria mother in Africa. This mitochondria mother is known as Yemaya in Santeria. She is known as Yemoja in Yoruba. She is also known as Yemanja in Brazil. She is known all over the world.

There are thousands of stories, great myths, and legends about the African goddess. In Yoruba, she was known as the river goddess. She became the Yoruba deity of the ocean during the enslavement of Africans after the Mid Atlanticcrossing. Millions of enslaved Africans appealed to her for guidance and support. Thus, she became the Orisha who presided over the oceans.

Yemaya can also be associated with Our Lady of Regla in Santeria. She is linked to the second chakra or swadhisthana chakra in Sanskrit. The 2nd chakra is located in the womb area and is a vessel for creativity [creation and protection of the hero]. Yemaya presides over the womb and is called upon for maternity purposes, or to help aid mothers while giving birth. She helps mothers give birth, not only to children, but also to new ideas, opportunities, and beliefs. Yemaya is the divinity of creation itself. Continue reading

Vitality and Magnetism

From THE CHAKRAS
BY C. W. LEADBEATER

VITALITY AND MAGNETISM

The vitality coursing along the nerves must not be confused with what we usually call the magnetism of the man – his own nerve-fluid, specialized within the spine, and composed of the primary life-force intermingled with the kundalini. It is this fluid which keeps up the constant circulation of etheric matter along the nerves, corresponding to the circulation of blood through the arteries and veins; and as oxygen is conveyed by the blood to all parts of the body, so vitality is conveyed along the nerves by this etheric current. The particles of the etheric part of man’s body are constantly changing, just as are those of the denser part; along with the food which we eat and the air which we breathe we take in etheric matter, and this is assimilated by the etheric part of the body. Etheric matter is constantly being thrown off from the pores, just as is gaseous matter, so that when two persons are close together each necessarily absorbs much of the physical emanations of the other.

Indigo Sun

blueboywater-crystal-lifeThe Occult Sun: Part One
By Elva Thompson, 2015

 Everything is one of a pair of opposites…. The Kybalion.

Occult Tradition: the polarities of the sun

According to esoteric tradition the sun has two polarities, positive and negative: a physical sun and a spiritual sun. The seat of the sun is the third chakra of Fire and resides in the solar plexus of the human energetic system; this is also dual and can be divided into Fire rising (+), Fire at neutral, and Fire descending (-).

The rising sun
The dawn Sun is the movement of Fire rising upwards into the fourth chakra of Air (the heart field). The sound of Fire rising in Pythagorean intervals is the mystic 6th C+A.  At twelve noon the Sun is at rest in the centre point, and then descends into the second chakra of Water (Emotions).

Yoruba Ori

The Ori
By Philip Neimark

Ori plays an important role for Ifa devotees. The word itself, in Yoruba, has many meanings. It means head, or the apex or highest pinnacle of achievement. In a spiritual sense, the head, as the highest point of the human body, represents Ori. The head of a company or organization is known as Olori, or Ori for short. The supreme being, our single God, is known as Oludumare, another form of the word.

In the human body, Ori has two roles: the physical and the spiritual. The physical functions of Ori will be familiar to us: our brains think, our eyes see, our noses smell, and our ears hear. Our mouths speak and eat and breathe. Our faces are different from all others and provide our physical identities. Our spiritual Ori are themselves subdivided into two elements: Apari-inu and Ori Apere. Apari-inu represents character; Ori Apere represents destiny. An individual may come to Earth with a wonderful destiny, but if he or she comes with bad character, the likelihood of fulfilling that destiny is severely compromised. Character is essentially unchangeable. Destiny is more complex. Continue reading

Dantian Field

Where in the World is Dantian?
By Sifu Anthony Korahais, 2012

The Chinese word dantian (丹田) literally means “elixir field”. A better translation is “energy center.” It is the natural center for your body’s energy. Dantian is important not only for energy arts like Qigong, but also for martial arts, especially Tai Chi Chuan and Shaolin Kung Fu.

So where in the world is dantian?

Traditionally, it is located slightly below and slightly behind your belly button. The classical measurement uses a biological inch, which is the width of your own thumb. So your dantian is located 3 thumb-widths below and 2 thumb-widths behind your navel.

But if you go searching for dantian with your thumbs, you’re not likely to find it. First of all, dantian can be in slightly different places for Continue reading
