Tis the season for “Peace on Earth”, at least that seems to be what I hear so many people saying, wishing for and singing about each winter holiday season. Then the year progresses and I look around, look at news reports and global events and it certainly makes me wonder.
Do you wish for “Peace on Earth”? Do you wish for peace in your life? My question is this, Peace – well what exactly does that mean? Truly, what does “peace” mean in all those wishes, songs and prayers?
Does peace mean the lack of violence? I am sure most of you reading consider violence the absence of peace. So maybe that is what Peace is, the Lack of Violence? Do you consider killing animals for food violent? After all it is killing, no matter the cause. How about killing an insect? Killing a plant for food is also violent. Are not all acts of killing, no matter the intent or necessity, violent? Where is that line drawn between a non-violent killing and a violent one? Who draws that line? To me there is no line, and the taking of life is a necessary part of this world. We all need to eat. We all should have enough self care to defend ourselves from attackers, and that means an insect preparing to bite or sting you and harmful microbes inside us. So perhaps Peace is not so much the lack of violence after all?
How about the lack of suffering? Suffering sure is not very peaceful. So maybe Peace is the lack of suffering? Everything alive suffers in one way or another though. So long as a creature has consciousness there is potential for suffering. So long as a creature has a brain and nervous system there is suffering in physical life. All life gets sick. All life is subject to injury. The more complex the conscious state and emotional levels, the more suffering on mental levels there tends to be. All physical life dies as well, and suffering is part of that, even if not for the life leaving, but for who remains. How could this physical world exist and function without suffering? The whole place is laid out with suffering intricately woven through every layer. So maybe the lack of suffering is not an attainable Peace?
What about Freedom? Could having freedom be the Peace people sing about? In a world from ancient times through the present there have been groups of people seeking to control others and all life around them. The very notion of a lack of full control of one’s own life tends to breed fear and fear tends to breed the need to assert control, even if imbalanced. Governments control us, global banks control us – how many of us actually own our own houses? Most people are in debt because they live in a house. The banks own our houses, not us. The economy controls us. The elements control us. The essential needs of the human body control us. Control exists everywhere you look on this planet. Has it ever not? Will praying for true freedom turn the world that seems to have always been as it is, upside-down? Well it sure has not so far. So perhaps freedom is not Peace?
Maybe Peace is then acceptance? Could peace be the acceptance of everything just as it is? The acceptance of all the negatives and all the positives in this life is something very few have mastered. If you accepted everything as is, would you have Peace? Acceptance does not remove violence, suffering or control, it just places the mind in a state that understands all of it has a place here in this life and we can never stomp it all out. Would Peace then be just accepting that there can never be the level of Peace we are taught and told we should hope for on this planet; not in the capacity it seems most think of Peace as anyway?
What about a lack of fear in life? Would that perhaps be what people seek when they pray for Peace? That is another tricky request or pursuit. I have written many times before about fear and the pros and cons of it. I think it would be very difficult to remove all fear from our lives. We live in a very dangerous and challenging world where fear has definite purpose, as well as enslaving properties. Maybe the removal of fear in life would be what is considered to be Peace, but it seems a very out of reach dream unless we go back to total acceptance.
How about faith as being Peace? Once again, faith differs greatly from person to person and once person’s idea of Peace in their faith can be very different than another persons. I think being solid in one’s faith does not necessarily mean Peace.
Maybe love is Peace? If one can completely love would that mean they have attained Peace? I suppose it is possible, but most people I have spoken with over the years who live in a higher state of love than many can identify a background fear of losing that which they love, or having it challenged or degrade. So maybe love is not necessarily Peace either?
How much have you thought about what Peace actually is, actually means? It’s a pretty hefty word that people throw around quite regularly and seemingly carelessly, but I think few actually step back and deeply ponder just exactly what it is. Most people I have spoken to about it seem to have a very unattainable, unrealistic idea of peace on earth.

Fear is a commonly misunderstood emotion within this physical life. It runs the lives of more people than not, yet its affects are so potent most people do their very best to avoid analysis of the emotion. I find fear is usually only partly discovered within people because the defense system of the brain and personality itself does a fair job in covering fear up.
Through about a decade and a half of training and working in government agency paramilitary black ops, I have to say I became well versed in the ways of fear. Not only were we trained in fear levels, but of course we were continually exposed to each throughout our employment as well as afterward within the context of healing.
Freud stated in his book Civilization & its Discontents that adulthood and civilization are just high level and complex defenses structured upon primal, child-emotions to hide those emotions and trick us into feeling above them. But the defenses have weak spots, glitches where the true nature bleeds through. Hunger drive, sex drive, death drive, etc, etc, etc… and all the emotions, positive and negative legacy emotions connected to those drives.
Fear is a primal emotion of this life. The effects of fear are so unpleasant that many people build defense systems to hide the fear, even from themselves. Fear creates various levels of anxiety feelings which directly affect both the brain function and body functions. What is rolling through the brain with intensity also runs through the body. Fear can create a simple nervousness or on the other extreme, a complete meltdown of neural functions placing someone in a serious state of shock, or the systematic shutdown of the nervous system.
Fear of course has its natural place in the world. As a primitive emotion it can warn us of danger in order to help keep us protected and alive. However, fear can also be triggered and exaggerated by the brain into overreactions to things that do not require a fear response. If you round a bend on a dry desert trail in the high flats of Arizona and see a rattlesnake laying there in the sun, your brain releases stress hormones and induces fear. Your brain has been conditioned in life to understand that the bite of a rattlesnake is poisonous and can certainly harm or even kill you. Therefore when you see a rattlesnake in front of you, the conditioned brain responds with the very primal emotion of fear. The body reacts in accordance to its own conditioning to the fear/stress hormones your brain produces. This is natural and useful fear.
On the other hand, fear can be triggered in situations that do not warrant it. This kind of fear can create many difficulties in life and how we all function in it.
Fear itself is nothing more than data. It is an emotional reaction to a person/animal, place, thing, or event. The “thing” could be a memory. Fear is the brain communicating data to your brain and body that something in your conditioning, whether learned or inherited, associates something with danger. But fear is just data; it is not the danger external. When we learn to observe the fear within, from a neutral standing, we can gain understanding. If we let fear override our ability to make rational conscious choices we are unable to remove ourselves from the fear enough to understand what it is communicating to us.
Fear unobserved and not understood becomes a prison, a slave master that controls our lives. But again, because the ‘feelings” we experience during fearful states are so unpleasant, and society deems being afraid as being weak, our brains devise defense mechanisms to hide the fear deep inside. These internal places are the place of the unknown within us all. This is where fear builds its home in our depths.
We must understand that fear is an emotional reaction based upon remembered fear, either through our own conscious memory or through inherited memory from our base instincts. The reactions we have to fear; anger, shyness, guilt, shame, and many others are not so much reactions to fear but rather the remembrance of fear from our pasts. Fearing fear more than a situation that our brains might use to trigger fear. Fear of fear usually prevents us from falling into the full-blown effects of fear and acts more as a check-relief valve that can instantly cover what we are feeling. This of course does not quite hold true of people coming from extreme trauma backgrounds, especially in or starting in childhood when the brain was still developing. Children’s brains exposed to extreme trauma fail to develop “normally” as I have written about before and countless others have studied and documented on in-depth. This creates “different” mental reactions later in life than adults who did not have high trauma childhoods.
What we do not understand we fear, so goes the old saying. If we do not understand fear we will fear the fear itself, as the other old saying goes.
Anger is a cover for fear. I would not believe this for most of my life, but through calm and neutral observation over time I have discovered this reality. When we get angry it is because we are afraid of something and the anger becomes both a self defense mechanism towards that which we fear and a cover to hide the fear. Not all people get angry through fear of course, but anger grows from fear in the emotional gardens of many.
Interestingly there are only really five kinds of primal fears of which all other fears and fear labels set upon or grow out of. Through my own therapy for CPTSD, with the assistance of my counselor, I have been finding these five primal fears. The five fears are:
All fear grows from one or more of the above listed. See how many fears you can list and then see which of those five primal fears the ones you list fit with. I would be very interested if you can find any that do not fit with one of the five primal fears in the above list.
I like to look at the hand as a reminder of that list. The hand has five fingers and then hand is a great representation of that list. What does the hand do?
It is important to be aware of the fact of which many of the professional manipulators, mass media, corporations, military units, government agencies, and so on understand the mechanics of fear and do everything in their power to employ devious strategies to manipulate people on a regular basis. Control through fear. We have all experienced this first-hand.
Even seemingly basic phobias spanning people’s lives from childhood; fear of dogs, spiders, strangers, wilderness, cities and so on come from one of the 5 core fears, not from the objects themselves. If you were attacked by a dog as a child you may have developed a fear of dogs that you carry through life, but you are not actually afraid of the dog itself. Instead your fear might be based in #3- death, or perhaps #5- bodily destruction. The dog is just a symbol your brain has adopted from one experience to trigger those core fears behind the symbol.
Once we can gain an understanding of what fear is and where it comes from, we can begin to identify what we are truly afraid of, why and how we deal with it. It is a first step to personal healing and emotional freedom. It is something I have been working on very specifically. I have been finding it a bit more challenging though because my brain is wired a bit differently due to the major interference in its development as a child enduring the traumas I did. Nonetheless, it is a necessary process in healing and so I embrace it.
Hopefully you will find something of interest here and perhaps discover something in yourself that will place you one step further towards personal emotional freedom. It is important to remember, fear is one of the most difficult emotions to work with, work through and transform because our brains are developed to remember fear the most. Why – because it is a primal survival emotion of which without most of us would have placed ourselves in the way of extreme danger and perished long ago before we ever reached adulthood. Nevertheless, successful training of any combat art (and even more so the successful employment of techniques in real situations) requires the self awareness and understanding of personal fears as well as fear in others, and most importantly the self honesty it takes to admit the truth of it to the self.
I am not among the believers in our purpose in being here to evolve our spirits by-way of gaining knowledge through physical experience. I don’t believe the spirit is seeking to evolve, but rather it fully understands that everything is in a continual state of change and that there is no “good” or “bad” or even an evolutionary process [beings that spirit is eternal, and so is change, and in spirit all energy exists equally and so evolution denotes an inequality within the very energies that make up the ALL]. I feel spirit is nothing more than organized energy, and being energy is has no choice but to create through expression. All energy must express and therefore create. What is created is simply based upon what energy patterns the expressing energy aligns with. I see it all around me everyday no matter where I look. Energy seeking to express itself; plants, minerals, elements, animals, weather patterns, and so on. Spirit is not seeking to evolve but simply express creative forces flowing through it. An artist does not paint or dance to become something better along an evolutionary path [because ‘better’ is a judgment call based upon personal bias], just as a plant does not flower for that reason. They do so because the base need among anything alive is to express the energy flowing through it, whatever that energy may be, it needs to express.
Our spirits are simply aligning with similar energies and expressing facets of itself through, in this case, a physical existence because as an energy structure it must. I don’t believe it comes down to spiritual evolution to “higher” more “profound” states of awareness or karma, but a simplistic and very potent need and continual pattern of expression through creative forces.
For instance, the Viking peoples did not believe in gods and goddesses as lofty entities like poor interpretations of other religions and modern “Hollywood” cliché stereotypes have tried to depict.
Like I’ve written before in interviews and articles - Odin/Wotan was not seen as a god who sits on high, but rather an expression of the totality of creation, just like the Native American Great Spirit that moves in all things. Odin is a combination Norse word roughly meaning “wind that walks”. Wind is unseen yet felt. Wind permeates all life and moves all things from the world of the unseen and yet it is here upon the earth and touches everything alive as if it truly is the non-physical world walking beside us sharing this physical experience with us. Odin can be looked at as a wise chieftain or even the old mystical wanderer who donned a cloak and hat, carried a rune staff and travelled with two wolves, Geri and Fleki and two ravens Hugin and Munin. Hugin is thought and Munin is memory and they both whisper continually in Odin’s ears. Geri is greedy and Fleki is ravenous. Greedy for life and ravenous for experience; meat and sustenance. Odin feeds both the wolves but Odin does not eat, only drinks mead because Odin is ethereal while the ravens are mind energy and the wolves are physical energy. Or like the valknut symbol, Wotan might be looked at as the trio of life; mind body and spirit, the cosmic fire, the cosmic ice and the balance point between and our pursuit to elevate each state of being as well as continual change through movement. Not much different than the creator views of many Native American tribes with many variations, but all the same in that the creator force was a moving force containing everything, not a singular entity, but a movement of life eternal walking beside us and within us.
None of them are “good” or “bad” or trying to evolve into some higher state of being. They are the energies of life; seasons, elements, conflict, love, emotions and so on, and simply exist to express and through those expressions life on all sides of the veil continues ever on.
I do not feel we evolve as we comprehend evolution because we are mere extensions of a greater energy. This greater energy flows into us of its own need to create. Due to massive levels of interference of all kinds in this world we rarely have the opportunity to receive clearly and fully the true level of energy being fed to us from the greater energy source from which we are created. The rare times we do, I find we dabble with the feelings of oneness; a state beyond thought or emotion, a place of absolute contentment, if only briefly and so fleeting.
Therefore since the source from which we come is far more intense and “complete” than we, simple facets of its creative energy, then we do not really evolve, but rather attempt to achieve a stronger connection minus the interference. When we make that fleeting connection it is my mere opinion that we are feeling our real and greater root energy source and it feels like something to “evolve” to, but I don’t think it is evolution but rather a stronger connection to return to.
· Source --- incomplete and flawed creation --- the creation seeking to evolve higher than the source as if we know better than the source as to what is needed in existence – evolution becomes stagnation – lack of creative flow
Continual Creative Flow
· Source --- creates --- creation creates because the source creates --- all has its place in the continual flow of creative expression --- nothing attempts to evolve to a “higher state” because in the end it would stop the flow of creation --- the source flows through all creation, even creation creating, so “evolution” is counter intuitive and counterproductive because it does not create from original intent, but rather attempts to mold into a preconceived idea a stagnant root
Personally I don’t see any evolution going on in the human race, that’s for damn sure. People are just as violent as they have ever been; just as thin skinned, prejudice, self centered, fragile, etc, etc. If anything people in the true depth of a human being seems to have degraded, not evolved. Our ancient ancestors were far more connected to this earth, each other and the realm of spirit than people on a whole are today. With the rise of technology the human race at its base form has seriously slipped down a sinkhole, not worked on any evolution or “ascension” to some higher plane of existence. People long ago lived in the Now because it was necessary for survival and the interplay of relations. Today most people struggle just to remain in the Now for a few moments before the mind is distracted to someplace else. History clearly shows that with the rise of industrialization people and their cultures began to move away from the spiritual, the depth of human connection to this life found in every moment and the power of the Now and move into pursuits of materialism, greed and instant gratification.
The only things that interfere with creative expression are blocks/obstacles. Writers block, painters, block, dancers block, etc. Creative flow happens within all the elements and it relies upon just that, Flow. Anything that blocks that hinders the flow stagnates the creative expression. This creates weakness. As long as the creative expression flow is allowed to happen, life flourishes. Block it and life suffers. No area of this world is exempt; environmental ecosystems down to the inner workings of the smallest organism. All of it is energy and so needs to express through creativity. If someone wants to dominate or destroy another all they have to do is block that life forms expressive flow. It isn’t about evolution but connecting to and continuing the flow from the source through every facet of life; a flow of creative expression.

In this third article I move into a very specific area that can many times be found under addictions. This is the subject of pain itself. This is a sensation no human being upon this earth is unfamiliar with or exempt from unless in the case of rare diseases that inevitably prevent a human body from living more than a few weeks to a few years. And when it comes to pain, no matter how painful it gets, the pain can always get worse.
To start to understand a little bit about why pain might be one factor behind certain addictions we need to understand a bit about pain itself. I am not talking about feeling or not feeling pain, but rather a very real look at the physical aspects of what pain is.
Pain itself can only be felt due to our nervous system, which of course is run and controlled by our brain. If the brain did not register what the nerves were picking up from the rest of the body, we would not feel pain. The brain itself contains no nerve endings to feel pain and so is the only part of our body exempt from feeling pain. Every other region of the body contains nerves in-which pain can be “felt”, but only by transmitting the sensation back to the brain to be processed and identified as pain.
Even though the brain processes what our nervous system picks up, there are two very specific regions of the brain responsible for the task of identifying the pain sensations of the body. They are the thalamus and the cortex. The thalamus is the first real region of the brain to receive nerve impulses registering pain sensations. Once the thalamus had identified the sensations as pain, it moves them to the cortex. The cortex is responsible for our complex thought patterns. Our thoughts pick up the thalamus’ transmissions and then tell us we feel pain, where and what kind.
Each cell in our body contains a surface much like our skin. The skin of the cell is coated in neurotransmitter receptors. These receptors are windows that allow pain messages to enter and communicate with surrounding cells.
Nociceptor’s are a different kind of nerve receptor that registers pain. They are basically very thin fibers of the nervous system, like minute tentacles that pick up pain impulses in our tissues. Nociceptors carry pain impulses directly to the spinal cord for their lightning fast journey to the brain. Typically you need to be smacked for the nocieptors to register pain as they only pick up strong pain sensations. This is unless you have been exposed to some kind of skin damage, which increases the nociceptors sensitivity level and then the slightest sensation can activate them into registering pain. The process is kind of a system to try preventing re-injury or continued injury of a damaged area.
All of the nerves that can register pain rely upon naturally produced chemicals in our bodies. Without these chemicals we could not feel pain. This is how pain medication works. The chemicals in the medication, in one form or another, block the body’s chemicals that allow the nervous system to pick up pain. Opioid drugs do just that, block the nervous system from feeling pain by inhibiting the chemical hormones of the body that allow the opiod receptors from transmitting pain to the brain.
It all comes down to the hormone production of the body’s endocrine system. Increased glutamate reduces pain register, which is one reason it is given to animals with arthritis. Serotonin levels dramatically drop in people just prior to a migraine fit. Prostaglandins are hormones that register pain and thus create feverish and inflammatory conditions.
A-Delta nerve fibers are responsible for picking up and carrying a style of pain known as “Sharp”. C-Fibers only carry other kinds of pain. In the science world of pain there are only 3 main kinds of which all pain is categorized under.
The sharp pain/fast pain includes all skin pain associations such as cuts, scrapes, abrasions, lacerations, splinters, rashes and the like. The A-Delta fibers quickly carry these types of sharp pain to the brain for identification. It allows for a type of first response reaction to quickly and specifically identify hazards that are attempting to more seriously harm the body.
The soreness and burning pains are carried by C-fibers and deal more with burns and inflammation. The C-fibers move pain sensory more slowly than A-delta fibers. The pain is slower to register and lasts longer than pain connected to A-delta fibers. The burning, sore pain ratios deal mostly with the skin and since they are slower to register they are harder to indentify exact locations.
The aching pain style also deals with the C-fibers, but work much deeper areas of the body like bone and organ. The pain is long lasting, can be excruciating, intolerable.
Interestingly both the A-delta fibers and the C-fibers can be activated during the same pain impulse which sends what is termed “Double Pain” sensations to the brain, so we can experience both a sharp pain and an aching pain at the same time.
The chemicals of Histamine, Endorphins, Globulin, Acetylcholine and Arachidonic Acid are all released upon the stimulation of pain. Epithelial receptors, Messner and Pacinian corpuscles are free nerve endings that sense pain in our bodies. No other nerve ending can sense pain.
Due to genetics some people have more free nerve endings than other people and also produce less of certain pain inhibiting chemicals, which allows them to feel more pain and thus deal with it less affectively in general. Redheads are one genetic line that falls into this category.
Now how does this help us understand how pain can accompany, support, intensify or diminish addictive behaviors? Pain is based upon nerves and chemicals in the body and the brain’s ability to register the unique communication pathways between them. If the brain does not develop properly in childhood because of extreme trauma then it can create interferences, enhancements and other imbalances within the make-up of those chemicals responsible for the identification of pain in the nervous system. The cortex of the brain can also develop in ways that does not seek to avoid pain, but rather run towards it so to speak.
If a child is abused over and over and the abuse is physically painful, their cortex may develop with the understanding that pain releases chemicals that can in small ways help free them from the pain and assist in dissociation. An intense euphoric state separates the consciousness from the body, removes the consciousness from feeling pain, sadness, misery, grief and the like. The overproduction of chemicals such as acetylcholine can also create a sort of invincibility to pain. What can occur in such cases is the brain develops in ways to dissociate from pain and move into a mental high. This can process could lead to addictions later in life when the physical pain stops. Stress in life can be more than enough to drive the grown child to seek that mental high, and this many times happens through addictions. The brain has been trained in that survival mechanism in childhood and later in life can fall back to that primal cycle because it found it was proven sets of techniques to cope.
In other cases an abused child or a child who lives through extreme trauma may end up producing such chemical releases from the intense and ongoing stress. The brain could do the same thing in using the chemical release as a survival instinct to dissociate so the mind and body do not breakdown.
Yet another scenario is an aggressive child could fight back against the trauma in physical ways, fighting, anger and whatnot. This in-turn can create painful situations compiled upon the original layers of extreme stress and pain. Their fighting back actions can bring about more production of those chemicals released during pain and create a sense of invincibility, competitive drive to win over their oppressors or yet another state of an almost euphoric dissociation through the extreme aggressive or competitive state.
No matter how we look at it or what circumstances may have occurred originally in childhood, each of them allows for an escape route based in primal survival instincts of the body to cope with the intensity of life. This imprints the brain and later in life under stress the brain can revert to using those previously imprinted survival tactics to once again cope with life’s challenges.
Smoking, gambling, sex, alcohol, fighting… they can all lead the cortex of the brain to various states of euphoria which helps the person dissociate from the challenges they do not want to face, the old traumas hidden deep within their minds.
With me it was fighting. When I was abused in childhood through regular and ongoing beatings, screaming, emotional and mental abuse, anger and rage I rose up to fight back. At first it was inside. I was far too young to physically fight back. I had no choice but to take the punishment and endure. This meant my body created pain inhibiting chemicals far more often than the average person. They would flood my nervous system and brain and help me dissociate from the situations. Once I started physically fighting back those same chemicals would release and take me into a kind of “high”. The pain I endured in fighting would only further stimulate the chemical release as well as allow me to dissociate into an emotional state of fighting the abusers of my younger childhood, both became a sort of release for me. The traumas were so deep and powerful I had not the tools at those young ages to deal with them and so the only way I knew how to relieve the constant mental and emotional turmoil was to fight and try attaining that high which would both help remove me from the pain and release my focus on the darkness of the past for a little while.
I was addicted so I fought and fought and fought until I was recruited into the S.O.E.S. training facility within the special operations group contained in the special activities division. From there my addiction was only enhanced, redirected and used against me and for the imbalanced purposes of others.
In my civilian life my addiction to fighting slowly drove away friends and alienated me from various blood family relations. To them it was all my fault and something they had no desire to help me with. Underneath they were not true friends at all and abandoned me to my misery I could not even come close to understanding. Only through years and years of struggle, pain, near death events, dark and filthy paths did I find people who knew how to help me help myself. People who genuinely cared.
Addictions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are blatant and others well disguised. And the primal survival instincts our body has evolved with in response to pain can be a big factor.
Once again I hope this helps whoever it needs to help in whatever way it may. To your peace of mind and heart.

From my own experience with the severity of trauma is that a person adapts severe survival instincts and actions based upon the energy of the trauma. These actions and instincts are of course created of necessity in response to the continual life threatening and thus traumatic situations, especially in children who have not yet developed the brain capacity for logic and reason to in anyway successfully deal with the traumatic events. These new and enhanced instincts become part of the psyche and morph into whatever area of life the brain feels they are required. But this is from a brain that was deprived of a balanced experience set for proper development. Therefore the brain can develop a logic not based upon a “safe and normal” lifestyle, but rather a violent, dangerous and highly traumatic one.
In time these instincts and “odd logic” find they do not fit into a new and more peaceful life. However, since they are so deeply rooted in the primal areas of the brain, they do not just go away. When the cycles of reliving trauma rise from whatever triggering may have occurred, the old survival instincts also raise. But for some they no longer come out in the same format. One thing I taught on the island last weekend, I said everything we do not deal with gets sunk in the blackness of our depths. And in time under extreme pressure can mutate into something else. Sometimes these things will mutate into addictions and when they surface the suppressed energy will act out in the form of an addiction.
I have noticed the addiction many times in its own unique way mimics the trauma, which is the addictions origin. For example, and these are just possible examples of an addiction and their possible origin:
Now of course there is no one answer or right answer or cause for addictions. The reasons can be very simple or quite literally mind-boggling and complex. They can be from trauma, chemical imbalances, environmental conditions, genetic make-ups, simple childhood exposure, side-effects from prescription drugs and on and on and on the list goes.
The point is that addictions always have deeper underlying reasons and causes. They do not just pop out of nowhere for no reason. They can be a direct view of an underlying cause that is exactly the same; a father was a compulsive gambler and perhaps won a lot, the child sees this over and over and later in life adapts the habit. Or they can be very convoluted and dark based reasons; a child was sexually abused in cult style ritual fashions and not only endured abuse but brainwashing, torture and perhaps witnessed murder and so on. This deep and powerful trauma can split the personality and create new levels to endure new traumas of which create a labyrinth of complex spider web imbalances in personalities that can bleed in very direct or subtle ways throughout the individual’s life.
If you have an addiction or if you know someone who does, it is what lies beneath that is the issue; the addiction is only the superficial surface crying out for help. Some various ways one could go about exploring what is underneath can be found in my PTSD, living with the beast, a personal story e-book, basic techniques found in my first Transforming Addiction article and countless self help books easily available on-line. In-short, there is help everywhere IF you want it. Nobody can transform an addiction unless they want to. Some people can literally do it overnight and others may work with the healing process for many years, yet everyone is susceptible to relapses. Life can be stressful, disappointing, traumatic and the brain looks for ways to cope and the only solid resources it has to fall back on in times of severe stress are the primal ones created in childhood when the brain was still developing. This is why I find removing one’s self as much as possible from stress and lifestyles exposing one to high levels of stress are a vital part of successful healing and brain rewiring. It is very hard to heal and rewire the brain when the external situations continue to tug and dredge the subconscious into survival mode.
For me I have found helpful:
Again this is mainly for informational purposes, but I do hope people will be able to uses some of these things to assist them in successfully transforming their addictions and traumas into something more beneficially productive.

When it comes to addictions and habits we all either deal with them in the present or have had to deal with them in our past. Perhaps some of you will find yourself having to deal with some in your future. Who knows. The point is that addictions and non-beneficial habits affect us all on one level or another. Some addictions, like smoking, affect not only ourselves, but others as well, and this is where addictions can become hazardous to people we care about.
I am not going to write a very long article about this but rather would like to get straight to the point. Addictions and non-beneficial habits destroy the people they control; sometimes slowly and sometimes quickly, but nevertheless they suck the life-force right out of the core and they do affect everyone in a person’s life.
Addiction to smoking, using drugs, drinking alcohol, over eating, excessive sex, video games and the list is literally endless because the possibilities are seemingly limitless. Just about anything can become an addiction or non-beneficial habit that degrades a person’s life. The question is what can we do about them.
Many people are out there suggesting and even preaching how affirmations can help “cure” addictions and habits. As to affirmations and working to shed yourself of addictions, you might first need to analyze:
Affirmations are not enough. It must be real, tangible, enjoyable and thus powerfully moving in order to overpower and change an addictive behavior. It is vital to remember that YOU are NOT your addiction or habit. You are far more. The addiction or habit is nothing more than a dirty film on the window, not the window itself. But the dirty film prevents us from seeing the beauty outside it and others from seeing the beauty inside. That dirty film tires our eyes from straining to see through it. It clouds our vision and perceptions. It confuses us and tires us out. To clean that dirt you need something physically powerful. Affirmations will not clean that dirty film. Affirmations might help you get motivated, but it must be a very physical action to actually clean the window. The same is true for cleaning ourselves of addictions.
Those are just some active ideas anyway. Perhaps you will find some assistance in them? I realize to some that may seem too vague, but for a process to truly work it must first be foundational and then it must be individually personalized to fit the uniqueness of the person and situation. One way never works for everyone. We must use the foundation to find our own way and do the personal work, with support if needs be, to truly make the desired changes.
You are far more and far stronger than your addictions and habits. Those things just try to trick you into thinking you are not. They try to manipulate you chemically by creating false and surface desires through the endocrine and nervous systems. This is why you need to always find something powerful to take the addictions place, something better, deeper and far more enriching and self empowering.
*** Addition ***
I will give you an example of something I had to get over and transform. Many of you who read my autobiography will know that I used to literally be addicted to exercise. I would exercise everyday for hours and the more intense the exercise was the better. Even if I was working 10 hours of hard labor and only getting 4 hours of sleep a night, I still had to exercise intensely for at least three hours, preferably four or even five.
If I did not exercise to such extremes I beat myself up inside telling myself how lazy I had been and all manner of other self degrading insults surrounding laziness. I judged others very harshly who did not or could not exercise as regularly and intensely as I did. I judged them just like I judged myself if I only put in three hours instead of four after working 10 hours in the blazing hot sun of July. I weighed in at 148-150 pounds and 7-9% body fat. If I reached 10 or 11% body fat it was unforgivable.
If I had cracked ribs or a chest wall contusion, I still had to exercise. If my arm was in a sling, I still had to exercise. If I let pain stop me, I was weak and pathetic. So I pushed through all pain and just kept going no matter the consequence.
Now this addiction was not the kind that was poisoning people around me or placing others in danger of say being killed because I was driving drunk. No, this addiction affected me more than others around me. It was eating me alive. Eventually the intensity of my exercise began to do far more harm to my body than benefit. My body began eating itself.
First I had to see that I was doing it. Then I had to accept that I was exercising too much and it was harming me. Once that very difficult process was accomplished I had to ask myself how the addiction made me feel on various levels of my being.
When I avoided exercise all of those feelings would reverse and I would feel terrible because my body and brain were addicted to the constant state of endorphins running through my system, playing down the deep and powerful pains of the years of physical, emotional and mental trauma.
When asking what various aspects would say about my addiction I would get:
So it was obvious the physical and emotional aspects were simply using the addiction to hide from the pain and distract me from dealing with it. The addiction also gave me a vent for the intensity of rage, anger and even wrath that stewed in my depths as a result of years of abuse and trauma. However, it kept me so bogged in the physical aspects, because otherwise I could not have physically continued the addiction, that I stole my connection to spiritual growth. So there was a very real conflict within me surrounding the addiction. The addiction was not helping me, but distracting and destroying me physically. All the while it was chemically fooling me from endorphin release into thinking I was the addicting behavior and needed it to life, to survive and to be “better”.
To wean off I had to find something to replace the addictive behavior. This was not easy, none of it was. It took many trial and errors. It took a combination of trying to accept and resolve the deeper emotional and mental traumas, work with the physical traumas and start taking the time again to tap into my spiritual nature. All the while I needed to continue searching for very real physical actions to successfully replace the need for the exercise addiction.
I looked into art, meditation, sex, reading, writing, traveling, and on and on the list went, but none of it could take the addictions place. Eventually life made the choice that I needed to be forced. I was poisoned by people trying to kill me and my family. It was through the long agonizing recovery that the addiction had to break because my body just simply could not do it any longer. In the face of that absolute I was forced to figure it out. Eventually I found it right under my nose, my wife and son. This branched off into helping others as best as I could through my experiences. Being in the wilderness and spending almost all of my time right next to it and even surrounded by it (living in a place where there was little in the way of separation from its physical aspect) was the other precious key. Together this trio of energies, very real energies did the trick and the addiction was transformed into more beneficial and productive avenues that unified body, mind, emotion and spirit.
But even today I need to keep a cross-check to make sure I do not fall back into the old addiction through the old mental conditioning. Today I am 165 and 14-15% body fat, which is pretty darn good for a 6 foot, 43 year old male (at the writing of this article) whose body and mind have been through hell and has adrenal fatigue, nerve damage, being poisoned which is still affecting my organs today, and many other issues. Even so, there are days when stress tries to uncover the lid of the old addiction. Then I need to stop, remind myself of all of the above and refocus to the reality of my life and surroundings and the urge disappears quickly. In other words I control it and it does not control me.
Anyway, that is a real example for you based upon something in my own life.

Recently I have been speaking more about genetics and their importance within all of our lives on numerous levels of our existence upon this earth. My article on Genetic Alignment Importance and interview concerning genetics and their importance and influence in physical training and activity go into some detail discussing piercing views of genetic coding. In this brief article I am laying out an example of genetic awareness and original wisdoms carried from original genetics into present day life.
Like I have said many times before, I can only present examples of which I know from personal experience. Therefore, the following presents an example based upon a personal awareness within my own genetic coding as laid out in the previous article titled Genetic Alignment Importance.
Within each 5 Original Wisdom’s exist a potency that supports energy alignments unique to the carrier race in conjunction with a balanced way of life here on earth. As each race resonates at a unique energy level to the other races, each of the 5 Original Genetic Codes possesses access to primal wisdom that bridges this world to the non-physical level of existence. Balance can only be obtained, carried and spread through an awareness and connection to the union of both sides of life. It is within my own observations and experiences that the most effective way for each of us to connect with the eternal non-physical existence, the realm of spirit or whatever you wish to call it, is through the strongest genetic resonance within each of us individually.
Remember in my previous article on genetics I said that most people today are mutts; we all contain numerous genetics lines. Even so, each of us possesses a dominant set of genetics that are more open and accessible than the others. These genetics are the ones that literally funnel the energy of that bloodline from our ancestors through us into the present state of the world. This is how the original wisdom’s touch all life on this planet yet today.
Though it is true there is much interference through huge amounts of imbalance that hinder us at every turn in the modern world, we can still step back, move within and reconnect our awareness, our consciousness to the original wisdom stream of energy. It is this original wisdom stream of energy that is the voices of our ancestors from a time when the 5 original races were still whole unto themselves and therefore in-balance with the others. Again this stream of energy flows out of the most dominant genetics we individually carry.
To connect with this there are three main pathways that need to be embarked upon:
OK, let me give a personal example.
In my previous article and comment I explained how the importance of tracing genetic lines through physical methods is essential to earth knowledge, which is Knowing rather than Assuming. That takes care of the first step; being the detective and tracing the tracks of our ancestors through time to find the origins of the dominate race within our blood; Red, Black, White, Yellow or Brown.
The next stage of that first step is not only discovering the origins of the bloodline, but also the wisdom’s of the original race you are targeting in your genetic coding. As an example, for me the northern Teutonic line of genetics is very strong and very open. In short that points to the ancient northern Germanic tribes and Viking peoples. They shared very similar lifestyles, dress, social structures and hierarchies and belief systems. The reason is because they were from the same original race of human. Just because over time a sea divided the tribes, the people remained very much the same for a very long period in history before southern peoples migrated north bringing variation, challenge and inevitable change.
Symbols of ancient times hold great importance for carriers of energy from the original people who used them. A good example is a symbol I wear and had deep and complex meaning for me, Valknut. Though the original name of the symbol has been lost on the tongues of humans, the symbol has been found in enough archaeological objects, all in direct conjunction with the Teutonic race on both sides of the sea, that its meaning, its purpose has been clear enough. The triple interlocking triangle “knot” is the symbol of both slain warriors and the energy of Odin. Remember in my article titled Genetic Alignment Importance that the Viking peoples did not believe in gods and goddesses as lofty entities like poor interpretations of other religions have tried to depict
Odin/Wotan was not seen as a god who sits on high, but rather an expression of the totality of creation, just like the Native American Great Spirit that moves in all things. Odin is a combination Norse word roughly meaning “wind that walks”. Wind is unseen yet felt. Wind permeates all life and moves all things from the world of the unseen and yet it is here upon the earth and touches everything alive as if it truly is the non-physical world walking beside us sharing this physical experience with us. Odin might be looked at as the wise chieftain or perhaps the old mystical wanderer who donned a cloak and hat, carried a rune staff and traveled with two wolves and two ravens. Or like the valknut, Wotan might be looked at as the trio of life; mind body and spirit, the cosmic fire, the cosmic ice and the balance point between and our pursuit to elevate each state of being as well as continual change through movement. Not much different than the creator views of many Native American tribes with many variations, but all the same in that the creator force was a moving force containing everything, not a singular entity, but a movement of life eternal walking beside us and within us.
The Valknut symbol is a representation not only of the slain warriors and Odin as described above, but also of the 9 “virtues” thought by that original race to try dedicating their lifepaths to following. The triple triangles have been looked at as the three levels of mind, body and spirit leading the individual to the higher self; to a victory over personal weaknesses in character they called “darkness”. However, each triangle has three points and with three triangles this makes nine points. Each point represents one virtue:
These virtues can be historically found in the cultures that used the Valknut symbol, the Viking and northern Germania Teutonic peoples. To them the symbol was found, discovered and thus became a channel for those specific energies containing unique wisdoms of their race into their conscious awareness to be expanded and manifested into the world.
This is what ancient symbols connected to. They were discovered out of the natural world and found by an original race of people, became a conduit for various aspects of original wisdoms to flow from the non-physical into physical manifestation through the people. With that said, it was also known that unless one possessed the strong genetic code of an original race from which a symbol came into the world’s consciousness, it should not be toyed with. If a symbol was utilized by someone not possessing genetic lineage to that particular original race it could cause more harm than not because would create conflicting energy outputs. I have heard it theorized that this may have been one contributing factor to the original imbalances of the races, by way of carrying, mixing, misinterpreting and misusing original symbols.
A simple example is that I have no Yellow Race genetics. If I were to try embracing one of that races original symbols and using it in my daily life it could disturb my own dominant genetic energy flow and create harm and imbalance in my life. It is the same for say an individual with strong Brown Race genetic coding trying to embracer and use the Valknut.
People have become very careless through the ages with frivolously mixing and matching powerful energy signatures from the 5 original wisdoms. This has been heavily utilized as part of the New Age foundation which does little more than lead people astray, distract and utterly confuse and weaken the dominant genetics that are open in the individual. One might say that it is greedy of one race to possess a symbol and its “power” that is not available to another race. This would be rather ignorant. Each race was born equal and therefore balanced within itself. Each race was a unique expression of the non-physical aspect of life into the physical world we know. Therefore energy signatures flowed through each race uniquely, even if similar.
Take the ancient swastika symbol with its four arms facing to the left as it spins to the right, clockwise, opposite the symbol the Nazi regime used. This is the symbol of the zero to nine law of creation and a teaching wheel. However, this energy was expressed through various races in its own unique fashion, not just one race. The swastika in its original form basically represents life, light and structure. The Nazi’s turned it around to create the opposite energy of death, destruction and chaos. That is a prime example of messing with a symbol to try creating something from it that it is not meant for.
However, the original swastika symbol can be found in various forms or versions around the world. Each race had a symbol that held the same meaning, but with a unique expression of that energy. The swastika, the pinwheel spirallic symbol, the medicine wheel, the yin-yang symbol, the Supreme Being symbol and the infinity figure 8 symbol are all perfect examples. There was no need for one race to use another’s symbols because they were given their own.
The only symbols I utilize in my life are found to have originated with the genetic lineage of my dominant genetics, northern Teutonic.
However, just finding the symbol and interpreting its original meaning is not enough. We then need to sit with its energy and go within ourselves to find out what that energy touches, what it opens and brings forward from our genetic coding. Only then can we truly begin to understand the actual energy of the symbol and how we can and cannot utilize it. Once we understand, then we must learn through inner listening how to properly manifest that energy through us into physical manifestation; the non-physical to the physical and back again.
A short but true story:
Most of you know that I make and sell dream catchers. Even though the dream catcher was originally a Native American craft, it holds a universal meaning based firmly in the natural energy flows of this earth. Part of why I make them is because they help me focus my energy and intent during the processes of my healing and yes the struggles with cptsd. A potent level of this creative outlet is the conscious tapping into my dominant genetic lineage and coding. I open to it and allow it to freely flow into and through my creation as it may, without forcing a specific intention.
Recently I sold one of my double dream catchers. It was then given as a gift to another person. This person is of the Yellow Race. They had been plagued by nightly nightmares for many months. The buyer thought the dream catcher might help this person. So they hung it above their bed upon receiving the gift. That night they dreamed a cloaked and hooded old man with a walking stick walked out of the dream catcher and above them in their bed. He sprinkled gold dust all over them and said the dust would clear away all their bad dreams and they would once again sleep in peace.
Since that dream the individual has slept soundly with no more nightmares.
When I was told this story I thought immediately that the old cloaked man sounded a lot like the Odin figure, which to me made sense. I tapped my ancient Teutonic genetics while creating the dream catcher. Part of it would have been naturally embedded with those genetic wisdoms, wisdoms that traveled through the material object through to the subconscious level of the receiver to assist them with their challenges even though they were from another original genetic race than I.
That is a perfect example of how reaching our own dominant genetics, tapping them, learning about them, allowing them to flow unhindered through us can materialize into the physical but span time and race to assist others no matter their own genetic origins.
The more we trace, reconnect, open, explore and express our most dominate original genetic energies the more personal power we gain. This means the more connected we become to our source in the non-physical levels of existence and that in-turn helps us better navigate and manifest our personal earthwalks. This in itself could be a catalyst for beneficial global change in the human race as a whole rather than the continued downward spiral of degradation.
Original races, original wisdoms; they were there for a reason and personally I feel it would be best for everyone if we attempt to build them back up in the current consciousness of the world.

(Before you begin reading this article, please make sure you have read the previous articles on genetics.)
The biggest epidemic the world has ever seen that still runs ramped today is trauma. It reaches across every ocean, spreads over every continent and effects every human from every walk of life, and research shows the more modernized the person and society is, the more traumatized they can become by life’s challenging events. Some of the top trauma researchers of the world, people like Bessel Van Der Kolk, Peter Levine and Peter Breggins, have been speaking for years in an attempt to show the world the reality of this epidemic. Though modern societies on a whole want nothing to do with accepting this reality because it would cost a lot of money to help people and to truly remedy the situation would require a total social revamp of our ways of living. So society does what it does best in matters that truly count, turn a blind eye and play ignorant.
It is my personal opinion that a main reason for this global trauma epidemic is the washing out of genetic lines and thus the disheartening disconnection, loss and forgetting of the Original Wisdoms. If the 5 Original Wisdom’s theory is correct, then each Original Race had a purpose like I thoroughly discussed in my previous Genetic Articles listed above. None of it happened just randomly. Each Race had a purpose, a place and within those dwelled the inherent gifts of the universe and realm of spirit (eternal place of the non-physical). The balance of the world with the Human Animal present required the diligence, respect and fortitude to explore, open, share and cherish those Original Wisdoms.
Since the Original Wisdoms require very specific genetic codes to flow through from the non-physical into the physical, any major altering of those genetic lines would begin to disrupt the accessing of the Wisdoms. The more disrupted the genetic lines became, not only the less access people had to the Wisdoms, but the less people understood them. In my opinion this was the original process of global trauma based in the Human Animal. The further people strayed from their genetic roots, the deeper the loss became, the loss of knowing the human connection to the earth and all life upon it. As people lost the conscious awareness and connections to the earth, trauma set in; a genetic trauma.
When something loses its roots or the awareness to the roots it becomes lost inside. This feeling of loss can be interpreted as the feeling of abandonment. This loss creates a constant source of anxiety and fear that permeates all levels of the self; this includes not only individuals but whole societies and even nations. As Original Genetics were washed down and the connections to the Original Wisdoms weakened, anxiety and fear set in like a plague. This slowly ate away at the integrity of humanity itself. This deep dark anxiety and fear spread from parent to child, parent to child through ages of time. This trauma was spread and carried to every corner of the world. One of the biggest and most outwardly dramatic portrayals of this trauma has been the imbalanced need to dominate others and force them into one’s own way of believing and living. The Original Wisdom’s do not speak of such atrocities as being a part of the Human Animal’s way of life.
The Original Wisdom’s show that each of the 5 Original Genetic lines were equal, none better or worse than another. Only through the loss of conscious awareness and connection to such wisdoms could an entire species of life turn on itself.
Instead of balance through the Original Wisdoms of each genetic race we have the:
Keep in mind that what I just listed is incredibly basic and so lacking in the true depth of the global imbalances stemming from the abuse of the Original Wisdoms. Since that topic alone would take a full series of articles, I used the above simply as a very basic example and nothing more. Nevertheless, in short today we have Race against Race and each Race against itself as well, and it is all based upon the deep genetic fear and anxiety from the feeling of disconnect to our origins, our original genetics and all that entails (laid out in previous articles). The modern social system propagates the further washing of genetic lines because the system as it is built requires a weakened people, a distracted people and a fearful people to rake in the most profit. It is no different that corporations. Corporations are no longer run by individuals with individual feelings, concerns and humanity. Corporations have become entities of their own, just like modern society.
People on a whole have lost their connection to the Human Animal, the foundation structure both physical and emotional make up of our species. The modern world seems to have no patience for it, no conscious place for it, and has created seemingly countless excuses like taboos, outright lies and other manipulative behaviors to try keeping people from this core human base. People on a whole have become disconnected from the Human Animal, the core human self in this physical world and this disconnect in my opinion is one of the biggest issues with human imbalance today. Without this birthright people cannot truly know themselves and so that primal nature hidden and shamed, feared and ignored rises up on a daily basis from the dark unknown to create havoc in personal lives that spread to global issues. Without being able to reclaim the nature of the Human Animal, acknowledging, accepting, tapping into and fully utilizing the three brains (reptilian/emotional, limbic/complex emotional and social behavior, neo-cortex/highly rational self identifying and relationship sector), we have no chance of ever taping into and reclaiming the Original Wisdoms bestowed upon the Original 5 Races by existence itself.
Trauma is a global epidemic and in my opinion it all began with the slow process of abandoning the Original Wisdoms, and therefore abandoning the human species very connection to itself, the universe and primal purpose for even being here. As with much of what I teach and speak about, it all comes back to starting to work on the Self; healing the Self through the reconnection to the Self, to our most dominant genetic codes and rebuilding internal strength through ancient connections and ties still alive within us. Opening weak areas traumatized by life and allowing that trapped energy, stuck in time, flow, release and heal those damaged parts of our psyches and bodies so we may return to the elemental structure of our being and purpose. It all starts with the Self and resolving issues so we do not continue to pass on the imbalances through our genetics to future generations. Yes easier said than done, but what other choice do we have at saving ourselves and the planet from the damage we have all helped create? Once you fall into a deep hole there is no easy way out, no shortcut because there is no savior waiting to drop us a ladder.
It takes a great deal of courage, bravery (as is the main focus of the Element Mountain classes this year) and fortitude to accept and face our own imbalances, damaged aspects of self and step up to the plate in order to patiently and compassionately work the healing processes as required, no matter how long it may take.
When you cut anything away from its roots it becomes traumatized, it dies, slowly or quickly, but it cannot survive without the vital connection to its roots.

In my 4th interview on this website I spoke of genetics and in my opinion their importance in the consideration of personal training and activity. A good portion of my focus in the last handful of years and even a decade or more prior has been on genetics, personal genetics and how they play out in my life and affect me on all levels of this earthwalk. I have done quite a bit of research into my family line on both sides of my blood family and found some very potent and clear genetic history. Of course none of this could have been possible without the long years of meticulous work my grandfather and grandmother did on tracing the family trees on both sides of the family line. While their main focus was on tracing dates, names, marriages, countries and towns, mine has been on actual genetic lines and the tracing of the names to their original genetic roots.
Since my family tree has been so well documented and the line of interest in those records remained strong for many years, it’s been rather a privilege for me to have access to that information in order to further the study and uncover deeper information of which I find to be of great importance in the process of self awareness, self understanding, self evolution and the greater interconnectedness from “self” to the vast web of life. As I stated in my interview, I feel uncovering and understanding our genetic coding is a vital aspect of tapping into the primordial power of unique energy aligned within the original genetics we possess. With proper focus and dedication we can learn to not only tap into, but also open various codes within our genetics to let flow the essence of actual connection to this physical world and the unique patterns each original genetic line was/is part of.
Once again all that is in reference to the 5 Original Wisdoms philosophy and the original genetic lines. No matter if one believes or disbelieves that philosophy matters not. The fact is that there is an origin in this physical world for various genetic lines. Each line resonates at a different level of energy/frequency and therefore is different than each other. The world shows us clearly that things resonating at different levels of frequency possess unique energy’s and energy expressions than others. How can each original genetic line not follow that same universal rule?
Sure I believe there are factions of humans in this world who have and still wish to eradicate people’s connections to their original genetic codes by-way of erasing the lineage trails. I feel this has always been based upon fear and the desire for dominion over all life out of fear of diversity and non-acceptance. The stronger the conscious connection and understanding of one’s lineage, the more opportunity one has to access their genetic coding, open and use it. This gives people personal strength to embrace and actively participate in their purpose for being here; to openly, honestly and passionately express that facet of all creation that can only come through them as an individual streaming out of their original genetics and current genetic coding.
I know a great many people who have no access to their family lineage because either their families never kept track or records were lost or destroyed or perhaps they were adopted and never knew their blood family and last name. With that said I feel lucky in a way for having access to my lineage, records and to have had a family with such a strong interest in keeping track. Even so I have found many mistakes in the records as to assumptions of name origins and genetic lines. Nevertheless, since the names are recorded I have been able to deeply research and find the correct information to add to the continuing line of documentation.
Personally I feel all our most powerful gifts and abilities should align with our genetic line. Why, because they are birthed from unique energy signatures and to resonate the clearest they require a clean output from a clear connection. In other words and generally, if someone has Asian genetics and they resonate with a “healer’s” energy and they study and practice the healing avenues in-which their original genetic line developed/discovered, like acupuncture, they can tap into those genetics and become a very potent practitioner. The reasoning is because they could tap into those ancient genetics and open the pure energies that flow of out that line, which could then be funneled consciously into their current practice of an ancient healing art. That funneling can enhance and energize that person’s gift and deepen their intuitive understanding in ways someone without those genetics could never find.
I have witnessed that many times over throughout my life. People not of the genetic line practice something developed by the genetics they do not possess and they can only get so far, because they lack the genetic resonance to tap into the original understandings, the original frequency codes of that bloodline. They may become good at what they do, but the deepest potential is reserved for the genetics from which the original expression of creation flowed out of.
In a world where information is instant and easy to find it has become in my opinion a mass distraction away from our roots. You can do a bit of research, take some classes on just about anything on any continent, whether is aligns with your genetics or not. Through my own experience I find attaching to expressions not of your dominant genetic lines can weaken your very essence like trying to swim upstream rather than going with the natural flow of the universal purpose of unique genetic expressions. All original genetics are equals, none being better or worse than another, but they are different and different for a purpose.
With that said we need to obviously understand the mixing of genetics today is huge and we all contain many variations of genetic lines. Even so, we all have certain genetics that are more dominant in us than others and those are our core power sources. Like I stated in my last interview, today it is not as easy with many people since genetic lines have mixed so much over the ages. Most people today are mutts. However, even with a large mixture of genetics science tells us that there are still those in each person that are more dominant than others. Interestingly the dominant genetics do not necessarily have to be the larger percentage in a body either. You might have 50% Mongolian, 20% Spanish, 20% Chinese, and only 10% Israeli, but that 10% could be the dominant genetic line “awake” in you and more accessible and usable than the others. It is then that 10% which would become your most powerful focus point because it contains the most opening potential of who you really are in this life and why you are here.
For myself my main genetic lines are in order of physical percentage, Helvetian (Germanic Celts-Swiss), Teutonic (Northern Saxon = Norman/”Viking”, Southern Saxon = North Germanic), Irish (which is actually traced to being North Germanic), Danish and Welsh.
Though I was raised with a strong Native American influence, I have no Native American bloodlines. Though for most of my life I have had a strong affinity towards Native American culture, especially those of the North East, there are no genetics for me to open into deeper facets of those cultures. The genetic codes I have been tapping into and opening and using over quite a few years are those most dominant inside me. Helvetian and Teutonic – mostly northern. Though I can touch my other genetics those most available and awake in me are Helvetian and Northern Teutonic. I tap into them, continually work to open the further and use them because they are most alive in me. They are ancestral lines that remain living through my blood and still have purpose and place to continue outward expression in the world as well as internal discovery. Does this mean I ignore my other genetics? No because they remain part of me, but they are not as awake in me and so not as useful to my facet of creation’s expression. Just because we may have certain genetics does not mean they are all strongly aligned with our path.
We must work to study this within ourselves and come to understand and honor that. Our full potential resides within this part of life’s puzzle, the genetic coding we possess and which of those genetic lines are most awake, most alive within us with the most direct expressive energy from the source, from creation itself. To ignore this or fight against it weakens us, degrades our very being and allows us to be vulnerable to anyone who seeks to manipulate and control our lives.
For me the connection between the Native American of the north east and my Helvetian and Teutonic genetics has been in the primal “pre-history” ideas and philosophies. These are not to be confused or muddled with the ideas and beliefs of those bloodlines post the invasion and forced dominion attitude of Christianity.
Helvetian, Teutonic and Native American philosophies did not force others to believe or follow strict religious dogmas. Everyone was allowed to freely believe in a fully independent manner whatever they wished. No one person’s beliefs threatened another and were simply accepted as a part of the many faceted truth of all creation. Each person’s beliefs had a universal place and this was honored and respected. Both sexes were honored as respected as equals in the world and beyond because the people understood that creation itself consists of both sides of the chromosome spectrum. Overall freedom and individuality of every person belonging to the tribe was of the utmost importance. The respect of both female and male had nothing to do with one trying to become the other, but rather the honoring of the sacred placement of both sexes in this world.
Their beliefs were also supported by the same underlying feeling and understanding that life is a process of movement, of ebbs and flows of energy and we are all an integral part of that movement and expression of the totality of creative forces. It was felt that each movement of energy had its own line of unique expression. Therefore to discuss that expression those forms of energy were given a variety of names or titles. Christianity termed what “pagans” worshiped were “gods and goddesses” of an evil source, but they were not external entities believed to come from “heaven” or “hell” or “astral” place, but simply naturally existing forces of the natural world. Even the word “pagan” means “in harmony with cycles of nature”.
For instance, Lowanantoo the “Grandfather North” (named by the Lenni Lennape Wolf Clan) was not believed to be a literal god or entity of otherworld make. Instead Lowanantoo was simply the name given to the energy expression and movement of the north. Freya of the Norse beliefs was not an actual goddess who came from some heavenly place outside the world, but rather the name given to the unique energy expression of love, fertility, beauty and so on. The “goddess” Freya was the name given to that energy expression all around and within the people with the understanding that that universal expression was as much part of them as it was the “natural” world around them. To call upon Lowanantoo or Freya was not to call upon an entity outside the self, but to align the self with that expression of energy in life because it was truly alive and real to touch and feel.
Even Odin/Woden was not seen as a god who sits on high, but rather an expression of the totality of creation, just like the Native American Great Spirit that moves in all things. Odin is a combination Norse word roughly meaning “wind that walks”. Wind is unseen yet felt. Wind permeates all life and moves all things from the world of the unseen and yet it is here upon the earth and touches everything alive as if it truly is the non-physical world walking beside us sharing this physical experience with us. Odin might be looked at as the wise chieftain or perhaps the old mystical wanderer who donned a cloak and hat, carried a rune staff and traveled with two wolves and two ravens. Or like the valknut Woden might be looked at as the trio of life; mind body and spirit, the cosmic fire, the cosmic ice and the balance point between and our pursuit to elevate each state of being as well as continual change through movement. Not much different than the creator views of many Native American tribes with many variations, but all the same in that the creator force was a moving force containing everything, not a singular entity, but a movement of life eternal walking beside us and within us.
Just as Native American tribes have their codes of honor and actions, so does Odinism and the Northern Teutonic peoples in the redes and noble virtues.
So my Native American influences overlapped easily with many foundation aspects of my Helvetian, Teutonic genetics. This allowed me to tap into those genetics easier and with a solid understanding of those foundations I had been exposed to and walked with most of my life. I never realized as I was growing up that all those connections and influences were setting me up for an internal realization and opening of true genetic lines and energies from across the great ocean. My exposure to Native American ways supported me on many levels until such a time came when the serious delving into my lineage, my genetic lines became possible. Thus through those foundation teachings penetrating more deeply into the “Old Ways” before tribes became unbalanced by strife and invasion, became universal pillars that my genetic openings would continue to grow upon.
Through the processes of genetic focus and opening of the old bloodline frequencies I can see that even though in heart I came to connect with “pre-history” Native ways, my body and spirit require the conscious connection to my true lineage to continue expansion and a more full expression of the energy streaming through me from and of life itself.
It is important to remember that when seeking your genetic roots and their pure energy you may run into personal issues if you have formed prejudices upon them. Remember that most prejudices people hold over bloodlines today are based upon partial views as well as tainted history, and the time frames depicting various cultures in a highly imbalanced state rather than their original form. This held view upon genetic lines would be a mistake for anyone seeking the purity of the genetic coding. All genetics were held in equal purpose and placement upon this world within universal eyes, as stated in the 5 Original Wisdoms mentioned above. Would you judge a baby, an infant for being “wicked” or “good”? You might judge the actions of an adult, but that adult’s actions today come from the struggles and overall influences of their entire life, not from their infant innocence. Genetic lines are the same.
Therefore if you have prejudice issues with your lineage it will be something you will need to see through to what is beyond, not only the seat of that externally installed prejudice by another, but also to the original wisdom of those genetics to come to terms with yourself.
For a few more details on how genetics work hand-in-hand with our abilities and personal trainings in life you can find this interview page on this website.

If you have not already, or if perhaps it has been a while since you read the 5 Original Wisdom’s, you may wish to go and read the article again so the information is fresh in your mind before continuing on.
I realize that some people who read the 5 Original Wisdom’s and never attended a class here at Element Mountain where more in-depth information is taught may have some questions. Not so much on the Wisdom’s themselves, but more so on the races. Therefore in this short follow-up article I have addressed some of those questions and attempted to layout a more direct view of the 5 Original Races that coincide with the 5 Original Wisdom’s.
Keep in mind that the following information is my own perspective based upon my own understandings gained from research, time, personal meditation/feeling, study of genetics and curiosity. Therefore the following is not to be confused with me saying this is fact, merely my insights based upon my own perspectives formulated from my own observations.
It is my feeling that each of the 5 original races had two places of origin on the earth and though each race had a twin elsewhere, the twins had variations, uniqueness even within the same color/race. I do not feel that each of those 5 races had singular starting places around the globe. The Black Race for example had two separate locations on the earth where they originated. Each was a twin of the other, both of the Black Race, but even so they were polar opposites of that genetic line.
Below is a list and description of the 5 Races and their points of origin.
Atlantis and North America — the reds from Atlantis sailed west to the east coast of North America and became the eastern Native Americans — the North Americans of the center plains mixed with the brown race of the south/Mexico perhaps long before the Atlantis red race even landed on the continent
Lemuria and North Africa — Lemuria Browns spread to most of the Pacific Islands as well as Mexico, Central and South America — the Browns of North Africa spread into India and the Middle East; ancient Sumeria (I think east Indian people are actually a mix of the Brown and Yellow races)
Mid and Southern Africa and Australia — they are both black races but very different people who can trace ancient roots back to their respective continents. (I think original Maori people are a mix of Black and Yellow races as well)
Northern Asia (Mongolia) and Southern Asia
Atlantis (Celt tribes) and Northern Germania (you know the Norse belief system actually started in northern Germania, not Scandinavia) — once again, both White, but very different in nature
Personally I think the original “plan” for humanoid species upon this planet was to have two sides of every race forming in various regions of the earth in order to hold a positive/negative balance within the individual races themselves. 5 original races, each with two polarities like the poles themselves, north and south. Aborigines of Australia, obviously a Black Race, but very peaceful and “off-world” connected and then we have the overall feel of the African Black Race which tend to be more aggressive and warlike, though just a spiritual. The Atlantis White Race of the original Celts were a very different energy people than the White Race of ancient Northern Germania tribes – polar opposites within the same race.
I think it was inevitable for the races to mix, but I also feel that the original race set-up was to ensure interracial breeding only between the two polar opposites within each respective race; white to white, yellow to yellow and so on, rather than all the races just jamming together and washing each other out. What would you get when mixing two polar opposite White Race genetics… a more balanced and very powerful offspring carrying the gifts of both sides of the racial scale as opposed to a washing out of the genetic coding.
Some people may think this all sounds rather Arian in thought, but truly it is not. Do we see Elk breeding with Mule Deer or Hawks breeding with Eagles? No we do not. Though Elk and Mule Deer are both of the Cervidae family, but they do not interbreed with one another. Their genetics do not wash out by mixing blood. Elk and Mule Deer races remain strong. Red Fox and Grey Fox do not mate even know they occupy the same territorial regions and they could physically breed. There are some Ligers in the world from forced mating situations between captive lions and tigers and many of them have birth defects and health issues and shorter life spans than either pure tigers or pure lions. When we look at many species that have mixed genetics we find many health issues of both brain and body that are not prominent in either of the pure strands the mixed genetics come from. Take dogs that were bred with wolves, you end up with very unstable animals prone to a variety of complications.
Even people with Native American (red race) blood have great difficulty finding organs from the white race for organ transplant that will be accepted by their bodies. The topic of mixing genetics from different races floods quickly into the medical world and not just ideas and philosophy.
However, a genetic line remaining too pure also creates health issues, like blindness in Dalmatian dogs and deformities in deer trapped on a small island. Most species seem to require fresh blood in the gene pool to remain at their peak. To me it makes sense then that human genetics are similar in that each of the 5 Original Races required similar but opposite genetic energy within the race pool to keep the population strong.
When we look at many old bloodlines we see very powerful talents/gifts seemingly born of those genetics. As those genetics are washed down with other genetics not of their original race, the talents become less and less.
This planet is based upon duality, polar opposites and the balance point created between. In my opinion original genetics must follow the same set of patterns since they are part of this earth.
