The American Mandrake is a completely different species from the European Mandrake.
Mandrake is used in rituals to aid in protection, love, money and health. It is used in the form of incenses or sachets and you may also use the root to hang above mantels in your house for protection. When using Mandrake Root in spell work it requires a 3 day soaking period to wake up the root, this is done in rain water or spring water.

It is used as an aphrodisiac, but poisonous if taken internally and could be terminal.

The Cherokee use mandrake for a very different purposes and in all the elements for various forms of healing and magick. In the direction of north it is referred to as Spleenwort [Aspenium playneuron]. It is an evergreen fern and was used with other plants in a formula as eyewash. Another plant called mandrake [Mandragora officinarum] was used for treating skin conditions and warts. In the East, South and West direction they use one of the other forms of mandrake, called the Mayapple [Podophyllum peltatum]. It is called Indian apple or mandrake, and is used in “special Medicine”. Like sunflower and evening primrose, Cherokee myths hold mayapple as sacred. Mayapple is a member of the Bayberry family, along with twinleaf in the West Medicine and blue cohosh in the East. Mountain folks used it to treat cancer and as a liver tonic. In the South Mayapple is used for the treatment of warts and mixed with dandelion to apply to warts as well. The mountain folks were also aware that the mayapple root was poisonous, except for the ripe fruit.

Mayapple grows abundantly in damp wooded areas in the Appalachian and Smokey Mountains. The plant has distinctive umbrella-shaped leaves with a single white flower that blooms in May and a yellow berry that is ripe in July and August. The rhizomes were used as a laxative. The Penobscot of Main used it for certain cancers, along with periwinkle. Today mayapple is used to treat planter warts and as a treatment for cancer and tumors.

In the west direction it is known by the Cherokee name of oo ne ski u ke and has a large leaf and a single white flower. An elder said do not touch the leaves with your bare hands because they are poisonous, but the fruit is good. To dig them out you learn to use a wood spatulalike piece made of laurel to dig with, then you dry and crush it to make Medicine. In the old days it was used to purge the body of ails. The women prefer to use it for themselves and their children, roasted, and even use it on difficult sores to heal.

Warning: Mayapple contains agents that are irritating to the skin. Do not use mayapple without the guidance of a person trained in its handling and use. This member of the Barberry family should not be used during pregnancy.
In Rome by a senatorial decree it is considered Illegal and is so titled Illegal Aphrodisiacs and Abortifacients. It is the magickal substance “venemo” that is forbidden by Roman law, According to Pliny, Natural History XXV.95, XXVII.2, XXIX.23, cf. Quintlilian, Declamations 7.4; 8.5.

It is associated to the Goddesses of Aphrodite/Venus and Hecate/Trivia, as you can see it is associated to both the light and dark aspects of the Goddess. However, do note that it is also associated to the Love Goddess in Egypt, which is Hathor.
It was the sacred plant of Aphrodite and was the golden apple that was the centre of her garden. It was identified with or equal to henbane, because of Aphrodite’s characteristics and effects.

Mandrake is important herb to witchcraft and gynaecological medicine. It served midwives since antiquity to increase sexual desire, to promote fertility, and pregnancy, to ease birth, to numb caesarean section, to kill the fruits of life in abortion, and to expel a stillborn.

The mandrake is also known by the names of “circeon, Mandragora Circaea, antimelon [in place of the golden apple], others called it kirkaia, dirkaia [plant of Circe/Kirke].

Mandrake is also interpreted as Moly. There are two kinds of mandrake the white which is associated to the male aspect and the black which is associated to the feminine aspect. Pliny states that when the seed is white the plant is called by some arsen, by other morion, and by others hippophlomos. [Pliny, Natural History XXV.147].
According to Apollodorus [second century B.C.E], the most important scholar of this time, it was the klrkata rixa, the plant of Circe, that was an amulet against the black magick of Pasiphae, a daughter of the Sun God Helios [Circe too was his daughter].

It was one of the key ingredients in the salves or flying ointments that Witches in the Middle Ages used. Here is a thought, what if we today made this blend and used it but under the watch of someone who monitored us. We could travel to many places and learn many things from our ancestors.

During Christian times the root of this herb was called Hexenkraut [witches’ wort], Unhold Wurzel [monster root], or Satan’s apple. In German it was called Alraune. It was treasured as a panacea that it was called Artz-wurxel [doctor root], “this is a term used by Williram von Ebersber in his exegesis to the Song of Solomon in 1060”. In the 16th century a wise woman or a witch was called an Alraundelberin [mandrake bearer]. Those who kept it in the home were said to have connections of the present and future.

Mandrake wine was used to treat insomniacs in the Middle Ages and early modern era. Many women were persecuted and exiled from villages and towns due to the use of mandrake.

Apollo

The Birth and Song of Apollo
Latona our Goddess was swollen heavy with the seed of Heaven. She crossed the Tigris-Euphrates River in the pangs of labour. As she reached the distant shore, Her water broke, causing the first life-giving flood of inundation. Clutching the earth, she cried – and at that cry all worlds were silenced. Latona’s fingers marking the sand, and then arose the Sons of Earth, who danced the dance of sword and shield.
In the course of time, Latona gave birth to the Moon Diana and to the Sun Apollo. They were the Twin Wolves ever by the side of our Mistress of the Night.
The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece!
Where burning Saphho loved and sung,
Where grew the arts of war and peace,
Where Delos rose and Phoebus sprung!
To the light and rays of the Mighty Sun.
Protected by Jupiter and Neptune alike
Bring his son to this Earth to heal Mankind.
The Golden Wolf of The Sun is he,
Sol Invictus, Apollo, Phoebus, Delphinus and Lucifer,
Bringer of Light, healer to all, poet, musican
Apollo is of all
As upon this night of honour to Apollo,
We stand before He, our God, our Sun God
We venerate, honour, work and serve he.
As his rays now again to awaken and to rise,
Let the Sun God Awaken and been so seen by all eyes.
As it is our song to thee Apollo, Phoebus, Sol Invictus, Lucifer
We honour thee.
Hymn to Apollo
How Apollo’s laurel sapling shakes!
How the whole temple shakes! Away, away with the wicked!
It must be Phoebus kicking at the door with his fair foot.
Do you not see? The Delian palm nods gently,
All of a sudden; the swan sings beautifully in the air.
Bolts of the doors thrust yourselves back.
Keys–open the doors! For the god is no longer far away.
So, young men, prepare yourselves for singing and dancing.
Apollo appears not to all, only to the good.
He who sees him is great; who does not is lowly.
We will see you, Worker from Afar, and we will never be lowly.
Let the cithara not be silent.
Nor your step noiseless with Apollo approaching, you children,

The Science Behind Testing for Psychic Abilities

This article was sent to me from Sally Perkins who came across my website and wanted to contribute this article for you all to read.  This is a great article and I hope you all enjoy it too.

“Einstein held the belief that human-made time did not equate to space-time. Space-time, instead, is something more intangible than human-made time and can be used to explain the world as it exists. According to his theories, everything that’s going to happen already exists as particles along a line in the space-time continuum. Therefore, the future already exists; we just haven’t seen it yet.”  Read More here http://backpackerverse.com/scientific-evidence-psychic-abilities/

My Journey to Future Earth Vision

My Journey to Future Earth Vision

Received on 29 June 2008

by Ariana Silver

In many of my journeys in which I have traveled I remember few, but on this night I went on a most powerful journey of awakening and new life in which lies ahead. Now, when I had this vision it was so profound that in my describing it to my True Mother, I knew it was not yet time to reveal to any form of mass community. What makes this vision even more powerful is that I received it on the 8 year anniversary of Leo’s passing to Sumerland and 8 years prior on the same night he came to me in a vision to reveal to me who I truly was and that it was really my time to remember and find my True Mother.

Why am I revealing said vision now, well today, my husband and I went to see the movie Knowing with Nicholas Cage and within this movie many of things in which I saw and have been seeing occurring were revealed to in the movie.

My journey as shown to me by the Ancient Mighty Ones, to our Future Earth, is as follows’. This the day in which we honour Leo Martello & journey within as he makes his presence known and visiting from the Sumerland, magic cast, knowledge gained, visions and dreams with answers to questions and Prophecy seen.

Within this most of profound vision journeys I took an extraordinary journey, a journey to future earth. A world that was awash of Solar lights, bridges connecting to all the lands and planets in this system, silent voices in which communicated through the mind, and the colours so radiant and pure, ones that could only be of the Gods Lands. Each planet had a special feature one was of Agriculture, another arts and artisans, another of knowledge and teaching, each planet represented the nature of the God or Goddess in which was the Patron or Ruling nature. Yet here, everything was utilized and for free, nothing was paid for with money, but with hard work and all were one. The people were peaceful by nature and enjoyed communicating with one another on such a higher level that speaking and writing were not necessary, though the library on this Earth held all of the works of Philosophers, Astrologers, Occultists, and more from time before it existed. I have travelled many a journey and most are profound but this came at a time when we are seeing so much change in the world and not so much for the better, but it is a time of which we are to know that those who truly seek shall find truth and be the ones chosen to continue life in another place and time as destined by the Gods for those who seek to evolve and understand without fear and without question.

As for my life in this world, I am unsure, as I was viewing from above the this world, hovering as if to only see of what will come in the future. However, I do know that in this world in which I was later walking around and all you could see were souls that were so radiant and pure it was a breath of fresh air. Clothing here was light and thin as the weather was not hot nor cold, the air one breathed was pure as pure could be with no pollution of any kind. People walked or rode horses to get to where they were going, or simply transported themselves through the realms. A world not yet experienced and one that only in time humanity shall experience.

Future Earth is awash with two Suns and one Moon, the neighbouring planets were so close that you need not travel far to arrive, the light of the Moon lasts longer as does the Sun light. Many did not even need to sleep and no one was ever deprived of anything in which they needed. Life and the pleasures of learning, teaching, crafting in the arts, mathematics, sciences, astronomy, astrology, artisans, dressmakers and so much more were priority over sleep. The minds were all connected as if one speaking was a wasted energy as everyone spoke and communicated by entrée of the mind. There were Twelve planets in this world as many as originally were in the beginning of time, all being connected by one bridge, which brought not only unity but full balance. No one worried, needed for anything, money was not used as all things were traded and bartered for what one family needed, it was a world of complete peace, a time that was once before during the Golden Age and forgotten.

A land, a world, in which one day shall return and those who are chosen and those who have sought to gain through seeking the path of the Ancient Mighty Ones shall once again get to experience as those who are of an elevated mind and soul. In colour they were pure hues, purples, red, yellows, greens, oranges, as pure as one colour could ever be, the Sun was a pure gold colour the moon pure silver and white. Transportation in this time was all utilized from the energy of nature alone and all things created in Future were only from what the land could provide from the natural sources and that was all humanity needed to survive. There were no dis-eases, no governments as the people worked together, it was all pure and of truest of ways, simple, honest, and full of life ever evolving.

This is our Future Earth our New World. Moreover, during this vision I was not sure of what I was being shown at the time, until approximately two weeks later when I got an ezine from Spirit of Ma’at in which there was an article entitled Ea a Messenger from the Future in which Paula Peterson who channels with Ea, a Sumerian God of communication and travel had written a journey in which she had been shown in the year 2003. In this I tried to communicate with her to speak with her of my vision and to compare to her journey, though sadly she never returned my correspondences.

Then again some weeks after this I saw Future Earth again in an article I had come across in which it showed planets of the pure hued colours in which were being looked at, as the next Earth for humanity to life upon. Now, from time to time I travel there back and forth and everything thus to date has been warnings of what we need to do to awaken our minds and guide those who are closed to open their minds before it is too late. In reality the truth being this earth will not be destroyed per say, but their shall be an awakening and the humanoids shall once again live among humanity to see who is worthy and who is not, and this is to determine who shall reside in the Future Earth.

Why have I waited to reveal this message or vision, well when I have such visions I wait for a confirmation to share such revelations with a larger group of persons as to say, the Gods give us extremely profound visions and not all are able to handle the messages we are given, if at all, so one must be careful of when such a message is shared with others outside of one’s inner circle. May the Mighty Ones guide you all and may you be blessed with the knowledge and gained wisdom in your path to truth and understanding. This is an ongoing journey as I learn of the Other Worlds and Lands in which are full of life and knowledge.

Note:  Since having this vision and journey many validations have come to pass in which Solar Systems have been discovered by NASA that are out there with such colours and Sun’s within the systems in which have been found.  This may not be the world in which many of us shall live in, but it will be the Future World of our Descendants.

 

Something interesting; today on the internet I found this, this goes directly to what I was shown by Ea, ten/10 years ago, https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/920081/speech-thought-communication-artificial-intelligence-siri-alexa-HIBA
