The Phantom Phone

Illustration Rotary Phone, in courtesy of Wikimedia Commons

This story took place when I was very small and, has been retold to me. something happened to me during my very early childhood, I must have been about the age of four, so even though I do not recall this specific event myself  I do recall several others from the house from I grew older. Now my Grandparents were some of the few that had not installed a phone in their house yet and the house were already back then ancient and well known in the area for its high amount of paranormal activity.

This all started in the afternoon, while two elderly ladies from the neighborhood were visiting drinking their cup of coffee with myself, and my grandmother present as she happened to be baby sitting me for the evening while my parents were away for work. All of a sudden we would all hear the loud and clear sound of a phone ringing, my grandmother grabbed my hand and the two of us walked over to the part of the house the sound was coming from, the phone kept ringing and ringing and we walked outside towards the household workshop where the sound became even louder.

Now I looked up at my grandmother and told her not to be scared, it was just the spirit of the house, bringing message that they too were looking forward to watch as the house got a phone installed so all of the family could talk. With this my grandmother settled and we returned back to the two elderly ladies that still were present drinking the coffee in the kitchen.

They both turned towards my grandmother and wondered if she had figured out what the ringing sound was all about, I looked up at them and said loud and clear it was just the spirit of the house, saying we should have a phone. Spirits have their own way of letting us know what they want in this house. they let us know in different ways when they are happy or not and what they want. With this the two elderly ladies rushed down the last of their coffee, and hurried back home, they did not want to stay one moment longer in the house, they had heard it was haunted but had not put too much credence into the myth of our family home being haunted. Now they knew for sure.

I must add that several of my grandmothers family members had been wishing for them to add a phone to the house so they could talk, since they were living far away. This seemed to be the way of the House showing its own way of the phone. Sometimes the energies of a place can manifest itself to make the wishes of those that dwell there come true, and this must been one of those times.

The Scent of Death

Illustration: Cemetery Carnations 

I have heard about how animals can smell death before it comes and as a psychic I know the strain one can feel by knowing more than one want about people, I have heard people talking how they would smell roses or baby powder as a sign of death, but nothing compares to what this one elderly woman had to endured in the span of her life. Here is her story;

For as long as I can remember there have been experiences that I at first tried to brush off as being of my imagination, but as time went by, this happened to me on so many occasions, I could no longer brush of the experiences as coincidences.

It is always the same, whenever death is about to brush by the person about to die, or someone close to them walks around carrying what I can only describe as the scent of death, I call it this not because it smell of the dead but because this is what those about to die carry around with them, a scent of carnations and earth.

This scent of death I have experienced on people that are about to die or have someone close to them that is about to die regardless of death by instant and unexpected accidents, terminal disease or acute and immediate health conditions. I still remember the first time I experienced this I was a young girl working in the fields at our family farm.  One of the other farm hands Harold smelled strongly of carnations and earth, nothing special about that but the scent was so strong it stuck to my mind, later he found out his father had died that day, I did not put much into "The Scent of Death" until later when I noticed the patterns.

Whenever I smelled the same mixed scent of earth and carnations, death was soon to revel itself. Countless times I smelled, this, and sometimes mixed with some erie premonition even before I noticed the scent of death. One experience especially comes to mind, my oldest daughter Jana called me up this day all in tears, the old family cat Princess had died, and I told her, do not cry over the cat, just wait and you will find your father at his bed, then the tears are in order. One week later I noticed the strong scent of carnations and earth, but this time it seemed to be surrounding me and my other daughter Lina that I happened to be with at the time. I then knew my husband had died unexpectedly while at home in his bed.

Another time which I did not actually connect to death was when the town church yard worker Jacob was standing in line in front  of me in the store, naturally he smelled of soil from digging at the church, the smell of carnations was not to unexpected either as he would be carrying a lot of flowers in preparation. Only later in the day I heard how he had walked back home to fix the roof of his house only to fall from the roof to his death that very day.

I must say this ability is a heavy burden, but I have had this with me for so long, at times I felt like I had to tell someone their loved ones were about to perish, only to hold myself back knowing that if I revealed what I knew it would only scare them and serve no good. At best I would be the bearer of bad news and my friends and maybe even my family would disown me. So, to this very day, I keep it to myself and hurt every time, I smell the scent of death.

Saved by the Spirits by Jose Prado

La Virgen de Regla (The Virgin of the Rule) Cuba´s Christianized 
version of the Vodoun Sea Goddess Yemaya. Lady of the Ocean, 
Protector of children, mothers, pregnancies, and sailors.

You may not believe me, but this actually happened today. For some time now I've drifted into depression and lack of faith, mostly in myself. But it's been effecting my spiritual life.

I had reached such a lack of faith in humanity in general that I actually began to hate humans. I know it sounds ridiculous but I had become racist against my own kind and likened us unto consumeristic parasites who refuse to change. I stopped my spiritual studies and lost touch with my practice. I'm a Pagan high priest by the way. People look to me for answers as they do their other priests but lately I just wasn't feeling in touch with the Spirits.

I started suffering from insomnia about a month or two ago and just a low morale in general. Today in the late afternoon, about 5:33pm when I woke up from lack of sleep in the prior night, I woke up to my older neighbor banging on my door because her Granddaughter stopped breathing and was having convulsions. The first thing I saw was the little girl not even in first grade yet, in her father's arms saliva dripping from her mouth, she looked like a corpse. The man screaming, begging for help to save his daughter. I F***ing flew to my sister's room, told her to call 9/11 and come help me.

A neighbor asked for ice water (Spanish remedy) to snap the child out of the convulsion. She started breathing but shallow then I heard a voice in my head, in my own voice, say "Call the spirits to save her,"

Even though I'm a spiritual person I'm also skeptical and asked "What can they do?," It suddenly didn't sound like my own voice anymore, it sounded like a man's voice now very irritated saying

"Shut the F@#$ up and do it!"

I didn't argue further, I called on the spirits and right away I saw Angels of light appear around the girl and calming the people down, they started healing her. My head still hurts from what I saw. I saw with my physical eyes their light, it was like staring into the sun at point blank range. And they looked different from the pictures I've seen. Some had multiple heads or faces others had animal heads. One looked like a Lion another like a bird of some sort and a whole host I couldn't see because there were too many.

They were different species but of the same choir I think. But the wings were all Dove like. And they had auras on their heads, they must have been Halos, that looked like a beautiful golden sun set. Then for some reason an impulse rose up in me to call on the Sea Goddess I worship, Yemaya. I screamed Yemaya's name in my head and asked her to save the child.

Yemaya is an African Goddess of the Sea. In Cuban Catholicism and Santeria she is synchronized with the Virgin of Regla. The Goddess is worshipped in many religions and considered the protector of children and mothers. I saw what looked like an entity made of pure water but in the shape of a woman start descending from the air above us.

The spirit who I believe was Mother Yemaya herself put her hands in the girls back (literally inside her back) and things started changing. She inhaled deeply and the color returned to her. So today I offer thanks to the Goddesses and Gods, to the spirits, and to the good people I proudly call my neighbors. Even the UPS man dropped what he was doing to call and help. The cops came in less than three minutes they had to send another ambulance because the first one got a flat tire.

By the time they came, the girl was well. They took her to the hospital and now she's safe and stable. I looked at one officer and said

"I'm glad you guys came,"

He was a young guy possibly early twenties and replied, "It's calls like these that make me wonder if I can do my job,"

He walked away. I've never liked many cops. I'm a socialist and anti-government. But today I didn't see a uniform, or a government, or an ideology. Today I didn't see stupid, petty people caught up in their own BS to notice the world around them. Today my friends I saw the beauty that is still inherent in each and every one of us. Today I saw why the Gods still love us.

My faith in humanity has been restored, and my faith in the Gods and spirits made even greater. I wish I could've stopped that officer and told him "No brother, you did your job today,"  but I was helping the Grandmother, using my abilities to calm her down. I will never, ever doubt the spirits again. You may not believe me but I'm telling you I saw it. No matter what religion you believe in know this : there are divine powers out there, they are with us, and they love us.

Praise be to the Divine Ones.

When Animals Heal Humans Injury by Force

 Norwegian Red Cow with Horns, same breed as the one 
my mother and grandmother kept at their farms.

My mother had problems with her back and spine for years, an old back injury from when she fell as a child while playing with her brothers and sisters at their farm.

The only solution the doctors had for her back problems were pain management, she had been to therapist, chiropractors, specialists of all sorts and even went to acupuncture and none of them were able to do more than short term relief but never able to fix the problem.

Now at the age of 53 something happened one of the cows for no reason gave her a power nudge strong enough to make her fly from infront of the cow all the way above the back of the cow and then about 5 yards until she hit the iron grates behind the cows that is used for removing manure. Never had her back looked this bad, it was purple and blue from the neck to the lower spine, all numbed up but not swollen. It also happened that she was scheduled to see the chiropractor later that week, which she figured would be a good thing so he could check out the injury the cow had caused to her already existing old back problems.

The Chiropractor was totally put out by the amount of brusing on my mothers back, and immidiately had her get some x-rays and see if there was anything he could do. When he returned with the new x-rays he had a big smile on his face, he could tell my mother her spine was no longer crocked, there was no sign of injury to the spine, so impressed was he with the change of the before and after x-ray images that he had several other doctors come over and look at them, and check out the impressive bruising on her back and spine. The now group of specialists could tell the muscle tissue on the back was healing normally, since that day when the cow smashed her against the wall her back has not been troubling her anymore. My mothers doctor even told her that she must have had some mighty angels guarding her because based on the amount of force her back had suffered in the fall it should have smashed it not streightned it out and healed the old injury from 45 years earlier.

My grandmother also had something similar happening to her, she had one year previous hurt her thumb on her left hand, making that hand less than half usefull, now one the bulls at her farm had a fierce look in his eyes, he kept staring at her hand, and as soon as my grandmother got close enough he bounced and pressed the thumb on her left hand against the railing of the bulls booth. As she welched out in pain the bull stopped reared and looked at her like, now you can go. Within a few hours my grandmother realized the thumb was no longer in pain and when she checked she was able to move it again, it was totally healed from the one year old injury, and she never had any problems with that hand or thumb again.

The last example is a experience I had myself as a child, I was my first day of chickenpox and our tomcat Pelle gave me this deep stare, he was the gentlest of cats and he was always with me wherever I went, he had never hurt me but this time he walked streight up to me stared me in the eyes and then at a peticular big pox on the middle of my nose. Lightning fast he struck it with his claws out and then walked away like there my work is done, your pox is done. within 24 hours of that my pox were gone, leaving me with less than 2 full days of the chickenpox, while all my cousins had it for almost a week and one even had it for 10 days, they were mad at me for being able to come over to visit when I contracted it after them and I now was already immune. I often wonder what was it our grey tomcat Pelle did, since he seemed to know exactly what to do like the pox blister on my nose was the main one and by "slaying" it he broke the pox and forced it back before its time.

Since then, I have heard many accounts of people's pets making them well again. In each account, the pet would look at it's sick owner in a strange way and then almost attack their owner by scratching them or, biting them or, kicking them and even licking them and then as magic, their owner gets well very fast. My question is, How do our pets know we are sick and how do they know what to do to make us better again ?

Why do I believe in Saint Francis? By Reverend Alaina Damewood

Illustration in Courtesy of Wikimedia commons
Saint Francis statue at the Mission of Nombre de Dios
For years I questioned myths about saints , angles and animals have always intrigued me but I used to think they where all just myths . Until I started experience my own divine in counter about 6 years ago. It started as a normal day after getting out of a long day of doing ministry work at a local college some of my friends asked me to go with them to the store and out to eat. We went to a local store to pick up some things for their work as well as I went there to come up with things to get to actives for the kids at the colledge .

After getting out of the store we decided to walk to the other end of the shopping center to grab food before the friend who had been driving us dropped all of our friends back to where we needed to go to. We started walking when my friends Shawn and Adam stated : Alaina that bird is following you . I told them just to keep walking and maybe it would go away , so we continued to walk down to the place to grab food , as the bird kept walking behind me. We got to the door of the place we where going to eat at and the bird was still behind my feet .

Shawn turned to me and stated Alaina what are you going to do about that bird? I said I will take care of it I turned and looked to the animal and stated Saint Francis of Assisi you can not come into the eating place with us while your in a birds body . The bird started acting like a normal bird and then became afraid of me like a normal animal and flew off. I questioned to my self was that really Francis as I went inside the restraint to join my friends . After we got out all of us walked back up to the other end of the parking a lot and got into my friends car to be dropped off . I asked Shawn to take me back home first since I was the closets one in the area then take our other friends back . So Shawn agreed to drive me back first. The second we pulled up into the drive away to where I lived , another bird of the same type flew down off a tree and sat right on the top of Shawn's car. Then I turned and looked at Shawn with his face being in panic and I said what is wrong he said my car will not start . The bird flew off his car as I turned and said thanks Francis for the warning . This was my first experience feeling like the saint of animals was watching my back.

The second event occurred up in Huntington WV where I had went with another friend to get his girls so they could come down and stay a few days with spending time with my kids. We where over at a store and a bird was following his car . Then I turned and looked at my friend saying I think we need to pull over . My friend asked why , I turned looked at my friend and said I just have a feeling something is getting ready to happen. So we pulled over then he receive a phone call saying his girls where not going to make it down because there had been a family emergency . My friend turned and looked at me and said how did you know . I said the little bird who was following us since our last stop did not leave and keep flying beside us . Then my friend who was a devoted roman right catholic turned around and said are you familiar with saint Francis the saint of animals ? I said yes and I believe he was the one warning us about your girls. My friend looked smiled and said Alaina I guess the legends about him are true . I smiled and said I like to think so.

This is the reason I believe in saint Francis and other saints because ever time when I think he is not watching I have another bird or other animal does something to warn me about events . I also like to think all the other myths about , angles , saints are real to some degree to . Because every time something happens to me . I question who is going to help me now and it makes we wonder what else is real that we do not pay attention to because of people saying they are just myths.

Attacked by Black Magic

Illustration excerpt from Larger photo 
The Illustration is not of Black Magic just chosen for mood.

This is a true event of what happened to me back in early June 2013, at this time Ray had an upper respiratory infection that just did not seem to let go, I myself had continuous bleeding that did not seem to stop. My mother and grandmother were also very ill at this time. This is the direct recollection just after waking up about what happened as I was in my deepest sleep. I felt like something intruded into my dream. Below is the actual online communication I had with Jose Prado, a good friend of mine and frequent contributor to the Paranormal Corner, he is a very well trained Mage happens to be a very well trained Mage, and proficient in many occult arts.

I have worked with Jose before, so I knew he is excellent at his work. The facsimile is as it was with some spelling and grammatical errors fixed, the conversation lasted over a few days because of the time difference between Norway and Florida.

(June 5th 4 am Norwegian local time) Jose, can you look into something? last night it felt like there was something that tried to enter me while in dreamstate, I fought it off and said my prayers. This could just been all the stress i been under this week, but i figured it best to have you look into it too.

I need more information than that. Detail everything for me.

Sure, in the dream there were three people two female one male, they were chanting standing in circle like they were summoning something as i approached them i felt they all had offered themselves as vessel I started praying in the dream, and managed to force out what possessed the two females, before the male knocked me over.

Wearing black robes with red satanic pentagrams?

They were all wearing black robes with red symbols pentagrams, there were black candles lit ones placed inside and around the points of the pentagram. I have never had dreams like this before. I broke off and woke up, also as they were chanting it looked like there was a red mist coming out of their mouth. They told me to join them over and over.  They started to try to force me into also offering myself as a vessel. 

To me this felt like someone were doing a distance attack.

The dream is symbolic, symbolism for something. It's symbolic of Enemy Work, that is to say, someone or something trying to cause harm to your family.

OK, what are good ways to ward against this.

Something doesn't want us looking into this. I felt sick to my stomach just now. They got a protection binding against anyone trying to look into this. How many Occult enemies does your family have?

None that I know of. My mother said she believes her fiancees ex-wife might want to curse her.

Your best bet is having your home cleansed and blessed followed by amulets of protection.

She felt in the past like she tried to hex her, OK, good I´ll do that.

My spirits say it's her.

Ray is sick with respiratory infection, they put him on two kinds of antibiotics this Friday.

Go to a Sami Shaman and have her do a Divination to confirm it then bind the bitch. Damn. Is Ray gonna be OK?

Oh, also this happened around 3:33 at night, as I woke up from the dream which made me think it was a local since it felt like it was not time displaced but done right then.

Hmm they say 3 am is the hour of the Beast, inversion of the Trinity.

Yes, it felt like they started the ceremony at 3 am and then I broke it off at half passed 3. Haven´t felt anything similar to this since my father was trying to hex my mother back in 2008 after she left him for the guy she is with now, but he passed away in 2008.

Hmm do a Reversal prayer right now. Face East and ask the Archangel of the East to smite the ones doing it. Then face West and ask the Archangel of the West for Holy spirit.

OK. I´ll do that.

Good, you need To speak to that Sami soon. Let me know once you finished.

(Next day June 6th, 3:13 am) OK I am done with the reversal prayer and the house have now been blessed by a priest, and sealed against evil influences. I had a powerful Sami I know help me out, among them my great-grandmothers spirit she was a good witch and a powerful Sami widely sought after for her advice, herbal lore and healing.

(June 6th, 6:31 am) Perfect, if the bitch starts hexing you again, get her picture, surround it with Hemlock, and have the Priest do the St. Benedict prayer on it

(June 7th, 12:06 am) The hemlock herb doesn´t grow in this part of Norway, are there any other plants I could replace it with?

 (June 8th, 6:59am) Any plants that are powerful in magick can be used.

After I completed all the things prescribed, I no longer had the strange dreams, the bleeding stopped, and Ray finally managed to fight of the infection that mysteriously had seemed impervious to multiple antibiotics and my mother and grandmother returned back to good health. I have no doubt there was some very evil magic at work, I felt it deep into my soul. As a psychic one sometimes pick up on things that were meant to be kept secret, like in this case someone trying to hex all of my family. I would like to recommend further reading the entry of mine called Curses, evil eyes, Hexes and Jinxes.

Huaka'i Pō - The Nightmarchers of Hawaii

There are actually a few different kind of nightmarchers in Hawaii, depending what type of warriors the night marchers trail were originally made up of, there are also several variants of the legends on the processions and what would happen to those that encounter these wandering warriors of the past.

Many Nightmarcher trails are well known among these in Laie, and in the Manoa Valley. People report everything from hearing distant drums, barking of the warriors dogs, seeing the light of their torches farther up the trail, and some even say they have seen the night marchers marching with full warriors entire. There are many dangers that are supposed to be connected to being spotted by the Night marchers, and how the only way to avoid the dangers are to show total respect, and even then one are said to require a relative in the Nightmarchers procession in order to not be whisked away, or fall dead to the ground right were one stands.

The Night marches or in Hawaiian (Huaka'i Pō) travel through out the islands of Hawaii to do as they always done and, that is protect their home. They are the ghost of Hawaii's warriors. On the nights of Kane Lu lono, Akua or, on the night of kaloa they leave their burial grounds and they march all through many sections of the islands. The Nightmarchers  will march out to battles of the past and they will also march out to several of the places that are considered grounds. Hawaii's Night Marchers leave their final resting places about sunset and will walk and march the islands of Hawaii until sunrise. I have also heard of a few daytime sightings. Daytime sightings are usually only witnessed when the Night Marches are going out to guide and escort a dying relative to the spirit world.

Right before the Night marchers come upon one, You can usually hear their drums beating and there have been reports of hearing chanting, dogs barking and one can see the Night Marchers torch lights from a distance. According to legend it is best to leave the area when you see or hear any of these things in to save yourself form death if seen by a Night marcher. However, if you don't have time to escape the Night Marchers, it is said that if you lay down, face down on the ground it is a show of respect and that the Night marchers (might not) harm you. Some even say that lying face down prevents the Night marchers from noticing you. However, I would rather leave the area if I had time to get away.

If you live in an area near the Nightmarchers trail and you hear the chanting, drums torch lights and a foul smell. You must go indoors to protect your self. If the Nightmarchers sees you, the only way to avoid death is to be in the bloodline of one of the Nightmarchers. if a member of the persuasion knows you and you are related in that family then, no harm will come to you or so the legends say.

Some places that the Nightmarchers are said to travel is as follows...
On The Island of Oaho; Manoa Valley at the University of Hawaii Manoa Campus, Pali Highway in the majestic Koolau Mountains, at The Kamehameha Schools campus located in the Kapalama part, The Kualoa Ranch on the Windward side, Laie and at La Perouse Bay

The above mentioned are only a few of the places where Nightmarchers have been reported. However, there are many other locations where it is said that Hawaii's Night Marchers will visit. It is suggested that any night time visitors to any Night Marcher location, or even day time visitors, be very wary and alert!

Letter to Earth from an Extra-Terrestrial? DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?

Image in courtesy of Wikimedia Commons 

The Paranormal Corner stumbled upon most interesting 
supposed letter from a E.T. in the following blog
Below is the letter. The Paranormal Corner plan to make a follow up entry so read on 
and let us know what you think as a reader and a citizen of our Earth. 
This letter is also available in Norwegian in our norwegian sister group
 Paranormalt Hjørne: En Utenomjordisk Melding til Jorden? Ønsker Dere at Vi Dukker Opp?


Whoever transmitted this translated message to you is irrelevant, and should remain anonymous in your mind. It is what you will do with this message which matters ! > Each one of you wishes to exercise her/his free will and experience happiness. These are attributes that were shown to us and to which we now have access. Your free will depends upon the knowledge you have of your own power. Your happiness depends upon the love that you give and receive. Like all conscious races at this stage of progress, you may feel isolated on your planet. This impression makes you sure of your destiny. Yet, you are at the brink of big upheavals that only a minority is aware of. It is not our responsibility to modify your future without you choosing it. Consider this message as a worldwide referendum! And your answer as a ballot! Who are we?

Neither your scientists nor your religious representatives speak unanimously about the unexplained celestial events that mankind has witnessed for thousands of years. To know the truth, one must face it without the filter of one´s beliefs, however respectable they may be.

A growing number of anonymous researchers of yours are exploring new knowledge paths and are getting very close to reality. Today, your civilization is flooded with an ocean of information of which only a tiny part, the less upsetting one, is notably diffused. What in your history seemed ridiculous or improbable has often become possible, then realized, in particular in the last fifty years. Be aware that the future will be even more surprising. You will discover the worst as well as the best.

Like billions others in this galaxy, we are conscious creatures that some name “extra-terrestrials”, even though reality is subtler. There is no fundamental difference between you and us, save for the experience of certain stages of evolution. Like in any other organized structure, hierarchy exists in our internal relationships. Ours is based upon the wisdom of several races. It is with the approval of this hierarchy that we turn to you. Like most of you, we are in the quest of the Supreme Being. Therefore we are not gods or lesser gods but virtually your equals in the Cosmic Brotherhood. Physically, we are somewhat different from you but for most of us humanoid-shaped.

Our existence is a reality but the majority of you does not perceive it yet. We are not mere observations, we are consciences just like you. You fail to apprehend us because we remain invisible to your senses and measure instruments most of the time. We wish to fill this void at this moment in your history. We made this collective decision but this is not enough. We need yours. Through this message, you become the decision-makers ! You personally. We have no human representative on Earth who could guide your decision. Why aren’t we visible?

At certain stages of evolution, cosmic “humanities” discover new forms of science beyond the apparent control of matter. Structured dematerialization and materialization are part of them. This is what your humanity has reached in a few laboratories, in close collaboration with other extra-terrestrial creatures at the cost of hazardous compromises that remain purposely hidden from you by some of your representatives.

Apart from the aerial or spatial objects or phenomena known about by your scientific community, that you call ´UFOs, there are essentially multidimensional manufactured spaceships that apply these capacities. Many human beings have been in visual, auditory, tactile or psychic contact with such ships, some of which are under occult powers that govern you. The scarcity of your observations is due to the outstanding advantages provided by the dematerialized state of these ships. By not witnessing them by yourself, you cannot believe in their existence. We fully understand this.

The majority of these observations are made on an individual basis so as to touch the soul and not to modify any organized system. This is deliberate from the races that surround you but for very different reasons and results. For negative multidimensional beings that play a part in the exercise of power in the shadow of human oligarchy, discretion is motivated by their will to keep their existence and seizure unknown. For us, discretion is motivated by the respect of the human free will that people can exercise to manage their own affairs so that they can reach technical and spiritual maturity on their own.

Humankind’s entrance into the family of galactic civilizations is greatly expected. We can appear in broad daylight and help you attain this union. We haven’t done it so far, as too few of you have genuinely desired it, because of ignorance, indifference or fear, and because the emergency of the situation did not justify it. Many of those who study our appearances count the lights in the night without lighting the way. Often they think in terms of objects when it is all about conscious beings. Who are you?

You are the offspring of many traditions that throughout time have been mutually enriched by each others´ contributions. The same applies to the races at the surface of the Earth. Your goal is to unite in the respect of these roots to accomplish a common project. The appearance of your cultures seems to keep you separated because you substitute it to your deeper being. Shape is now more important than the essence of your subtle nature. For the powers in place, this prevalence of the shape constitutes the ramparts against any form of jeopardy.

You are being called on to overcome shape while still respecting it for its richness and beauty. Understanding the conscience of shape makes us love men in their diversity. Peace does not mean not making war, it consists in becoming what you are in reality: a same Fraternity. To understand this, the number of solutions within your reach are decreasing. One of them consists in contact with another race that would reflect the image of what you are in reality.

What is your situation? Except for rare occasions, our interventions always had very little incidence on your capacity to make collective and individual decisions about your own future. This is motivated by our knowledge of your deep psychological mechanisms. We reached the conclusion that freedom is built every day as a being becomes aware of himself and of his environment, getting progressively rid of constraints and inertias, whatever they may be. Despite the numerous, brave and willing human consciences, those inertias are artificially maintained for the profit of a growing centralizing power.

Until recently, mankind lived a satisfying control of its decisions. But it is losing more and more the control of its own fate because of the growing use of advanced technologies, which lethal consequences on the earthly and human ecosystems become irreversible. You are slowly but surely losing your extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. Your resilience will artificially decrease, independently of your own will. Such technologies exist that affect your body as well as your mind. Such plans are on their way. This can change as long as you keep this creative power in you, even if it cohabits with the dark intentions of your potential lords. This is the reason why we remain invisible. This individual power is doomed to vanish should a collective reaction of great magnitude not happen. The period to come is that of rupture, whichever it may be.

But should you wait for the last moment to find solutions? Should you anticipate or undergo pain? Your history has never ceased to be marked by encounters between peoples who had to discover one another in conditions that were often conflictual. Conquests almost always happened to the detriment of others. Earth has now become a village where everyone knows everyone else but still conflicts persist and threats of all kinds get worse in duration and intensity. Although a Human being as an individual, yet having many potential capacities, cannot exercise them with dignity. This is the case for the biggest majority of you for reasons that are essentially geopolitical. There are several billion of you. The education of your children and your living conditions, as well as the conditions of numerous animals and much plant life are nevertheless under the thumb of a small number of your political, financial, military and religious representatives.

Your thoughts and beliefs are modeled after partisan interests to turn you into slaves while at the same time giving you the feeling that you are in total control of your destiny, which in essence is the reality. But there is a long way between a wish and a fact when the true rules of the game at hand are unknown. This time, you are not the conqueror. Biasing information is a millenary strategy for human beings. Inducting thoughts, emotions or organisms that do not belong to you via ad hoc technologies is an even older a strategy. Wonderful opportunities of progress stand close to big subdual and destruction threats. These dangers and opportunities exist now. However, you can only perceive what is being shown to you. The end of natural resources is programmed whereas no long-term collective project has been launched. Ecosystem exhaustion mechanisms have exceeded irreversible limits. The scarcity of resources and their unfair distribution - resources which entry price will rise day after day - will bring about fratricide fights at a large scale, but also at the very heart of your cities and countryside's.

Hatred grows bigger but so does love. That is what keeps you confident in your ability to find solutions. But the critical mass is insufficient and a sabotage work is cleverly being carried out. Human behaviors, formed from past habits and training's, have such an inertia that this perspective leads you to a dead end. You entrust these problems to representatives, whose conscience of common well being slowly fades away in front of corporatist interests, with those difficulties. They are always debating on the form but rarely on the content. Just at the moment of action, delays will accumulate to the point when you have to submit rather than choose.

This is the reason why, more than ever in your history, your decisions of today will directly and significantly impact your survival of tomorrow. What event could radically modify this inertia that is typical of any civilization? Where will a collective and unifying awareness come from, that will stop this blind rushing ahead? Tribes, populations and human nations have always encountered and interacted with one another. Faced with the threats weighing upon the human family, it is perhaps time that a greater interaction occurred. A great roller wave is on the verge of emerging. It mixes very positive but also very negative aspects.

Who are the “third party”? There are two ways to establish a cosmic contact with another civilization: via its standing representatives or directly with individuals without distinction. The first way entails fights of interests, the second way brings awareness. The first way was chosen by a group of races motivated by keeping mankind in slavery, thereby controlling Earth resources, the gene pool and human emotional energy. The second way was chosen by a group of races allied with the cause of the Spirit of service. We have, at our end, subscribed to this disinterested cause and introduced ourselves a few years ago to representatives of the human power who refused our outstretched hand on the pretext of incompatible interests with their strategic vision. That is why today individuals are to make this choice by themselves without any representative interfering. What we proposed in the past to those whom we believed were in a capacity to contribute to your happiness, we propose it now to...you!

Most of you ignore that non-human creatures took part in the exercise of those centralizing powers without them being neither suspected nor accessible to your senses. This is so true that they have almost very subtly taken control. They do not necessarily stand on your material plan, and that is precisely what could make them extremely efficient and frightening in the near future. However, be aware that a large number of your representatives are fighting this danger! Be aware that not all abductions are made against you. It is difficult to recognize the truth! How could you under such conditions exercise your free will when it is so much manipulated? What are you really free of?

Peace and reunification of your peoples would be a first step toward the harmony with civilizations other than yours. That is precisely what those who manipulate you behind the scenes want to avoid at all cost because, by dividing, they reign! They also reign over those who govern you. Their strength comes from their capacity to distillate mistrust and fear into you. This considerably harms your very cosmic nature. This message would be of no interest if these manipulators´ tutorage did not reach its peak and if their misleading and murderous plans did not materialize in a few years from now. Their deadlines are close and mankind will undergo unprecedented torments for the next ten cycles. To defend yourselves against this aggression that bears no face, you need at least to have enough information that leads to the solution. As is also the case with humans, resistance exists amongst those dominant races. Here again, appearance will not be enough to tell the dominator from the ally. At your current state of psychism, it is extremely difficult for you to distinguish between them. In addition to your intuition, training will be necessary when the time has come. Being aware of the priceless value of free will, we are inviting you to an alternative. What can we offer?

We can offer you a more holistic vision of the universe and of life, constructive interactions, the experience of fair and fraternal relationships, liberating technical knowledge, eradication of suffering, controlled exercise of individual powers, the access to new forms of energy and, finally, a better comprehension of consciousness.

We cannot help you overcome your individual and collective fears, or bring you laws that you would not have chosen, work on your own selves, individual and collective effort to build the world you desire, the spirit of quest to new skies. What would we receive? Should you decide that such a contact takes place, we would rejoice over the safeguarding of fraternal equilibrium in this region of the universe, fruitful diplomatic exchanges, and the intense Joy of knowing that you are united to accomplish what you are capable of. The feeling of Joy is strongly sought in the universe for its energy is divine. What is the question we ask you...“DO YOU WISH THAT WE SHOW UP?”

How to can you answer this question? The truth of soul can be read by telepathy. You only need to clearly ask yourself this question and give your answer as clearly, on your own or in a group, as you wish. Being in the heart of a city or in the middle of a desert does not impact the efficiency of your answer, YES or NO, IMMEDIATELY AFTER ASKING THE QUESTION! Just do it as if you were speaking to yourself but thinking about the message. This is a universal question and these mere few words, put in their context, have a powerful meaning. You should not let hesitation in the way. This is why you should calmly think about it, in all conscience. In order to perfectly associate your answer with the question, it is recommended that you answer right after another reading of this message. Do not rush to answer. Breathe and let all the power of your own free will penetrate you. Be proud of what you are! The problems that you may have weaken you. Forget about them for a few minutes to be yourselves. Feel the force that springs up in you. You are in control of yourselves!

A single thought, a single answer can drastically change your near future, in one way as in another. Your individual decision of asking in your inner self that we show up on your material plan and in broad daylight is precious and essential to us. Even though you can choose the way that best suits you, rituals are essentially useless. A sincere request made with your heart and your own will will always be perceived by those of us whom it is sent to. In your own private polling booth of your secret will, you will determine the future. What is the lever effect?

This decision should be made by the greatest number among you, even though it might seem like a minority. It is recommended to spread this message, in all envisageable fashions, in as many languages as possible, to those around you, whether or not they seem receptive to this new vision of the future. Do it using in a humorous tone or derision if that can help you. You can even openly and publicly make fun of it if it makes you feel more comfortable but do not be indifferent for at least you will have exercised your free will. Forget about the false prophets and the beliefs that have been transmitted to you about us. This request is one of the most intimate that can be asked to you. Making a decision by yourself, as an individual, is your right as well as your responsibility! Passivity only leads to the absence of freedom.

Similarly, indecision is never efficient. If you really want to cling to your beliefs, which is something that we understand, then say NO. If you do not know what to choose, do not say YES because of mere curiosity. This is not a show, this is real daily life, WE ARE ALIVE! And living!

Your history has plenty of episodes when determined men and women were able to influence the thread of events in spite of their small number. Just like a small number is enough to take temporal power on Earth and influence the future of the majority, a small number of you can radically change your fate as an answer to the impotence in face of so much inertia and hurdles! You can ease the mankind’s birth to Brotherhood. One of your thinkers once said: “Give me a hand-hold and I’ll raise the Earth”. Spreading this message will then be the hand-hold to strengthen, we will be the light-years long lever, you will be the craftsmen to … raise the Earth as a consequence of our appearance. What would be the consequences of a positive decision?

For us, the immediate consequence of a collective favorable decision would be the materialization of many ships, in your sky and on Earth.

For you, the direct effect would be the rapid abandoning of many certitudes and beliefs. A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions on your future. Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved for ever, in all fields of activity. Power would become individual because you would see for yourself that we are living. Concretely, you would change the scale of your values! The most important thing for us is that humankind would form a single family in front of this “unknown” we would represent! Danger would slowly melt away from your homes because you would indirectly force the undesirable ones, those we name the “third party”, to show up and vanish. You would all bear the same name and share the same roots: Mankind!

Later on, peaceful and respectful exchanges would be thus possible if such is your wish. For now, he who is hungry cannot smile, he who is fearful cannot welcome us. We are sad to see men, women and children suffering to such a degree in their flesh and in their hearts when they bear such an inner light. This light can be your future. Our relationships could be progressive. Several stages of several years or decades would occur: demonstrative appearance of our ships, physical appearance beside human beings, collaboration in your technical and spiritual evolution, discovery of parts of the galaxy.

Every time, new choices would be offered to you. You would then decide by yourself to cross new stages if you think it necessary to your external and inner well-being. No interference would be decided upon unilaterally. We would leave as soon as you would collectively wish that we do. Depending upon the speed to spread the message across the world, several weeks, or even several months will be necessary before our “great appearance”, if such is the decision made by the majority of those who will have used their capacity to choose, and if this message receives the necessary support. The main difference between your daily prayers to entities of a strictly spiritual nature and your current decision is extremely simple: we are technically equipped to materialize! Why such a historical dilemma?

We know that “foreigners” are considered as enemies as long as they embody the “unknown”. In a first stage, the emotion that our appearance will generate will strengthen your relationships on a worldwide scale. How could you know whether our arrival is the consequence of your collective choice? For the simple reason that we would have otherwise been already there for a long time at your level of existence! If we are not there yet, it is because you have not made such a decision explicitly. Some among you might think that we would make you believe in a deliberate choice of yours so as to legitimate our arrival, though this would not be true. What interest would we have to openly offer you what you haven’t got any access to yet, for the benefit of the greatest number of you?

How could you be certain that this is not yet another subtle maneuver of the “third party” to better enslave you ? Because one always more efficiently fights something that is identified than the contrary. Isn’t the terrorism that corrodes you a blatant example? Whatever, you are the sole judge in your own heart and soul! Whatever your choice, it would be respectable and respected! In the absence of human representatives who could potentially seduce into error you ignore everything about us as well as from about those who manipulate you without your consent. In your situation, the precautionary principle that consists in not trying to discover us does no longer prevail. You are already in the Pandora´s box that the “third party” has created around you. Whatever your decision may be you will have to get out of it. In the face of such a dilemma, one ignorance against another, you need to ask your intuition. Do you want to see us with your own eyes, or simply believe what your thinkers say? That is the real question!

After thousands of years, one day, this choice was going to be inevitable: choosing between two unknowns. Why spread such a message among yourselves?

Translate and spread this message widely. This action will affect your future in an irreversible and historical way at the scale of millenniums, otherwise, it will postpone a new opportunity to choose to several years later, at least one generation, if it can survive. Not choosing stands for undergoing other people’s choice. Not informing others stands for running the risk of obtaining a result that is contrary to one’s expectations. Remaining indifferent means giving up one’s free will.

It is all about your future. It is all about your evolution.

It is possible that this invitation does not receive your collective assent and that, because of a lack of information, it will be disregarded. Nevertheless no individual desire goes unheeded in the universe. Imagine our arrival tomorrow. Thousands of ships. A unique cultural shock in today´s mankind´s history. It will then be too late to regret about not making a choice and spreading the message because this discovery will be irreversible. We do insist that you do not rush into it, but do think about it ! And decide ! The big medias will not be necessarily interested in spreading this message. It is therefore your task, as an anonymous yet an extraordinary thinking and loving being, to transmit it.

You are still the architects of your own fate...

How to make a Guardian Altar by Jose Prado

From Blogger Nellie, of Paper Blog.com. An Ancestral altar she made from a combination of several traditions including the Day of the Dead tradition in Mexico. Her original post may be found here : http://en.paperblog.com/the-ancestor-altar-87785/

For those serious about working with magick the first step is working with your Guardian Spirits. In many religious systems, this is something that is pivotal to magickal or spiritual workings. The First step if you have not done so is to acknowledge your spirit guides. Many clients have asked me "Why didn't my guides protect me?" It's because our guardians cannot interfere with our free will. We must ask them to intercede for us. First acknowledge them by means of an Affirmation (statement of power you say out loud, the forerunner to a spell) here's a general way of doing it. 

Visualization and Affirmation of your spirit Guides
Visualize not only your Guardian Angels, but your Ancestor Spirits, Nature Spirits, Animal Familiars and Totems. Everyone has a small Army of different spirits to help them out not just one species or race but many. Even Guardian Ghosts. Like Ancestors, or people who died in the same hospital you were born in, people from another life that knew you and loved you and so on. But since most people are grounded in just one faith they tend not to see all the different Spirit protectors and helpers they have. Therefore, it is important to acknowledge them all. Once you visualize them around you, say out loud: 

"I call upon thee my
Guardian Spirits, Animal Totems and Familiars, Celestials, Elementals, Guardian Dead, Animal Guides and Totems, Familiars, protectors, teachers, and all Benevolent and Loving Spirit sent out to me by the God and the Goddess to help and take care of me. By the Benevolent Rulers of the Multiverse 
I acknowledge you, awaken you, and activate you into service and ask the Divine Masters of Heaven and Earth to give to you instructions, powers, energies, and strengths to help me out in any way, shape, or form I may need or is available to me. By the God and the Goddess, Amen."

You should feel a surge of energy being released once you do that and then you'll see and feel them not to mention hear them. They will help you in all you need. Just be sure to visualize a cloak (a wall of energy that makes you invisible) hiding you when you do it, imagine it is also a wall of silence and shadow that blocks out anything that is not your guides. That way you won’t attract any un-wanted spiritual attention. You'll be fine. Once you do that, it's time to make an Altar. Make an altar specifically for them. 

Type in your birth date on this site and you'll know the name of your Ruling Angel. It will tell you who that Angel is and what he does. It will also tell you how to make an altar for that Angel: 


This will tell you which Archangel of the week (Saturday, Sunday etc) is your guide. Once you do that, look up your Star Sign or Zodiac sign Angel here:


Then finally, your Angel of the Month you were born in here:

If you know the hour that you were born, go on here:
All the way at the bottom of that page you’ll see which Angel rules the hour you were born on.

Once you make the Altar, place a glass of water there and out loud say:

“I dedicate this Creature of water to the service of all my spiritual Guardians. In the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, Amen"

Or modify according to your beliefs.

Clean the Altar and replace the Altar’s water every Sunday or
Monday. Before night. This will make you strong. Never, and I mean never tell anyone the names of any of your Guardians. Doing so puts you in danger. People can cast spells on you and even control you if you're not careful.

Don’t even tell them the nicknames you’ve given to them. And when you are going to commune with them in front of other people do so telepathically or empathically. They can read your minds and emotions and will be able to know what you want them to do. Offer your Guardians white candles (Tea Lights or Church candles depending on the Altar) and incense every night. This candle’s energy will feed them every night.

The reason you need the water is because it's a spiritual conduit. Some of your guides will be stuck as compressed energy, unable to move or asleep until you offer them the conduit. This will allow them to awaken and move about to do their job better. The water also cleanses and blesses you and them. So it is important to clean that Altar and wash the glass and refill it with new water every Sunday or Monday before 12am. That way you won’t be full of compressed or dirty energy since the water also soaks away all of the negativity you’ve accumulated since the past week. 

Now, in Santeria (Cuba’s version of Voodoo and Hoodoo) we usually use a special stone called Piedra De Alumbre (Rock of Illumination) to feed and give light to the Dead and to the Guides by placing it in the Altar’s water. However, it dissolves in water and then you have to go out and buy more. So on that first website Angel Haven.com which told you the name of the Angel of the day of the week you were born on it will show you the incense, colors, and stones that are sacred to that Archangel. Those are some of the main components of your Altar. Use whatever stone is sacred to that Angel to feed and give light to your guides. 

Cheaper than buying Piedra de Alumbre and far more effective. But, if it's a metal oar like Michael's (hematite) use Angelite, it’s a stone that facilitates communication between a person and their Guardians. Put a few rocks in there for them to Ground themselves as well. Let them know that's what the rocks are for. Grounding is a technique for connecting to the Earth to drain un-needed or impure energy that you are filled with.

It is also used to stay ‘grounded’ or connected to the Earth in special rituals or spells to help protect you from spirits that may seek to attack you while you are in a trance. So this will allow them to be safe in case someone tries to steal your spirit guides (yes that is possible) and the loss of one’s spirit guides leads to insanity among other things). More on grounding later.

Put in 4 rocks for Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. The Illumination Stone you choose will represent the 5th Element, Spirit. You need to place a small dish of Sea Salt to represent the Earth, A white feather for Air, the Conduit takes care of water, Candle takes care of fire, and incense will be Spirit and as before use the incense sacred to your Archangel. Now you have a balanced Altar. Make, the dish a bronze, gold, or silver plated dish. You should also look up the Deities who rule the day you were born on.

Once you know the day of the week you were born on, you can look up the God or Goddess who rules that day of the week. There are, many all over the world so it will not be possible to know them all but to know the Norse and Greco-Roman Deities you fall under (based on the Day you were born) please visit this site.

To see which Orisha or Santero Deity/Deities you may fall under please visit this site:
In Santeria it’s a little more difficult to know the Orisha you fall under and you usually need to pay a Santero High Priest or Babalawo (Father of the Mysteries or Father in the knowledge of things material and spiritual.) $50 to do a special Divination with cowry shells to know which of the Deities you fall under. You might have a strong kinship with one Orisha and then it turns out that you fall under a totally different Orisha altogether. 

Now for the best piece of information: Your Guides can do almost ANYTHING as long as you remember to ask. Spirits can’t intercede on our behalf because we have free will. The only way they can do things for us is when we ask them to like:  I need help; this is what I need you to do. They are your family, friends, body guards, and army. Ask of them as you will but beware. Never ask them to do evil. Just as we have good guides, we also have neutral and Evil guides as well. 

Asking for something selfish or evil will awaken the bad ones. If that, happens you almost certainly have automatically pledged your allegiance to Hell which means they own your soul after that. You won’t find that in any book. I found that out because one of my first teachers was an ex-Satanist and that is what the group he was once a part of told him. Also my Godmother in Santeria told me that it was true that we had bad guides as well and that she would never even mention the name of hers because he was so violent he could actually cause physical harm to a person she was angry with. 

Never use the bad guides and if you ever seek justice, ask your Deities and Archangel to handle it directly, never your guides. When you need something like a job, or something low level that does not require the aid of a Divinity, ask your guides to help you and then light the candle as an offering. I frequently ask them to intercede for me to have help in finances, speaking to the spirit guides of potential employers to put in a good word for me, or just getting me things I want that do not violate free will. I won’t always get what I ask for however so I always ask that if I do not get what I want that I be given the equivalent or something better. It works.

It’s all a matter of faith and asking your guides to intervene for you. I also evaluate whether the problem I have is an important matter that I need to pray to the Gods and Goddesses for or if it’s something not so important that I can just ask my guides for. It’s always important to ask yourself if it’s a matter for your guides or Gods and if you’re not sure pray and meditate until you know for sure.

You can now fully communicate with them in visions or visualizations, or in dreams. Sometimes you'll hear and see them so clearly it's as though they were physically there. This is a special meditation to help you meet and access them, at anytime that some of the Lightworkers (Magick users who devote their life to helping the world) have developed :


Guardian Stones
A Guardian stone (a stone that for whatever reason matches your energy vibrations) is a type of Nature Guide to protect you) you won’t find that in any  book that I'm aware of, my stone spoke telepathically to me and compelled me to buy him when I first met him. Your Guide Stone will be multipurpose to you and you alone unless you bump into somebody who coincidentally has the same kind of guide. That means this stone or stones will do things for you that for another they wont do. They become multipurpose stones as far as you’re concerned. You can use them for anything. 

I do not know whether or not there are more Guide Stones out there. So far I have only felt that connection with one. Again, tell no one which of the stones matches your vibrations for that information can be used against you. From what the spirits told me it’s hard to use your own stone against you but I like to take caution in all things. You can use them for just about everything there is for you to do magickally.

 Last but not least you need to learn Grounding, Cleansing, and Sealing

After all Magick Workings
When you have just cast a spell or done a powerful ritual like a spirit summoning or exorcism, you have generated a large amount of magickal, spiritual, and physical energy that you now need to dispose of. If you don't the consequences are many but here are the three main consequences I have encountered: 

1) Too much un-used energy in your body will light up you like a Roman candle and spirits and other magick users, will be able to see you. I don't think I need to explain further what the ramifications of this is. It is dangerous, very dangerous and you would remain open to other spirits or energies. And even the nice ones can play nasty tricks on you sometimes. 

2) All this pent up energy can cause physical conditions like the body over heating, being too hyper, heightened emotions where you can say or do something you'll regret later (like being drunk on power) and when you sober up you'll realize it only too late. This can also cause mild to severe headaches, nausea and diarrhea, not to mention insomnia. 

3) You can accidently hurt someone and yourself. When that much power is coursing through your veins, literally anything can happen. If you say "Go to Hell!" You might actually curse someone or even hurt them because of the level of power you currently hold. Likewise if you are jealous of someone else, even without saying anything your subconscious mind will channel that power within you to hurt someone else. Maybe break them up with their significant other, or try to cause them to commit suicide and many other terrible things. 

And if you are naturally paranoid, keeping that energy bottled up can cause you to become more paranoid and even curse yourself by accident.

That is why one must be careful when using magick and never use it if you are sick, emotionally unbalanced, or under stress. When you are super charged with that much power even making a joke can speak something into existence and alter your reality. So Grounding is Paramount. To do this you go bare foot under a tree, place your feet on the dirt of the tree and ask the tree to remove all un-needed and impure energies or substances from you. Then imagine your toes turn into tree roots (alternatively you can do this with your hands too) and connect to the Earth then say "All un-needed energies and impurities, be sent to Mother and Father Earth for purification so mote it be!" This will drain the energies from you.

 Just be sure not too drain out too much you can make yourself sick and tired like that. That's why you ask only for those un-needed and impure things to be driven from you. But those pure and needed energies need to remain or you could die at worst or be sick at best. Once this is done the roots will turn back into your fingers and toes again or you'll know in your heart that it's done and you will be able to change them back into fingers and toes using pure will without another visualization. Make sure you have water to offer the tree when you're done and thank him or her with it. 

On another note those energies will be purified by Earth and sent to someone else when the time comes to help them. So you're also helping someone across the world which brings you good Karma at the same time. Now go drink a glass of water as a Seal to help close up those channels you opened up with your ritual or spell.  In Santeria as well as Trinidadian Folk Magick its customary to drink room temperature water after finishing a magickal working to seal or close it, pray over the water like this: 

"Sacred water of healing and life by (whatever divinity you worship) be blessed to cleanse, heal, and bless me and to close whatever doorways or channels I have spiritually or magickally opened until the time comes when I need them opened again. Amen." 
Once you drink it, you will be cleansed, blessed, healed, and those doorways and channels you’ve opened will be closed all at once. Until you need to open them again that is. That way nothing will be able to get at you via those channels or doors now closed. There are many ways to do this but I like to do it like that because its more efficient and gets the job done right. The first time you Ground do it under a tree but after it's been done once under a tree you can ground anywhere. 

But the traditional way is the best way to do it. Blessing the water you’re going to drink should be done before you even start grounding. That way you're not powering up again for another spell because you did it before hand. You can ask three of your Guardians to aid you in this too. One will ground you, the other cleanses you, and the third will close the un-needed spiritual and magickal doors for you.

 It's always important to do these before bed. It will make you safer in sleep. Be sure to bless the water against harmful entities, energies, and intentions so it can protect you also. And visualize the water being enchanted with positive energy to replace the negative energy you removed from yourself for whatever you banish you must replace with something. Otherwise if you banish negativity and leave the void open that negativity will return to you three fold or more.

 So positively charge the water when you bless it with your prayers or affirmations. And you should be set on your journey to the Craft.
