annieAnnie Dieu-Le-Veut is a shaman and story archaeologist who digs up the originals of these epic tales that were drawn in the glittering night skies of the last Ice Age. She brushes them off and then breaks down their meanings in the simplest of terms, so that we can unlock the doors of our perception with their metaphorical keys.

Once we understand the substance of the messages our ancestors left for us thousands of years ago, we realise the value and meaning of human life and finally know what to do with it.

Stories in the Stars – how to reincarnate into your own life

If I was asked to describe,  in just seven words, what you’ll learn to do from my new book, Stories in the Stars, it’s this:

How to reincarnate into your own life

 

Why is that?

It’s because ancient myths are actually the vessels or arks of our ancestors sailing the seas of Time and containing, deep in their submarinal holds, precious messages about our innate holographic relationship to eternal astrological and alchemical cycles which drive each of us along our life’s path.

Over thousands of years, these orally-transmitted wisdom teaching stories have been twisted and bastardised into fake histories in order to serve various and changing political imperatives. And they have been concertinaed, truncated and dumbed-down to satisfy the appetites of light entertainment through the shifting narratives, over time, of the mytho-industrial complex.

I’m a sort of story archaeologist who digs up the originals of these epic tales that were drawn in the glittering night skies of the last Ice Age. I brush them off and then break down their meanings in the simplest of terms, so that we can unlock the doors of our perception with their metaphorical keys.

Once we understand the substance of the messages our ancestors left for us thousands of years ago, we realise the value and meaning of human life, and finally know what to do with it.

The Saturn Return of Pinocchio

An extract from Stories in the Stars

In my experience, the Saturn Return is one of the most important features in the path of the zodiac hero, because metaphorically-speaking, Saturn is the planetary governor that represents the father who has to be redeemed by the son (Jupiter) in the Underworld, and the redemption of the ancestral line is a major part of the work for any initiate or shaman.

This theme is writ large in the story of Pinocchio, which is derived from an ancient folktale from Tuscany about how a wooden puppet, called ‘pine-eye’ or pineal gland, becomes a ‘real boy’. In other words, it is about the trials that the mythological hero has to face and overcome to achieve the ultimate enlightenment. Continue reading

The Grail Mysteries, Lesson 3: Forging our own faery sword of truth

Sometimes people use old myths about faeries, dwarves and wizards to build a cosy, walled cognitive space – in the same way that as children we used to construct camps from blankets and bedspreads in which to hide from the realities of the adult world.

However, the ancient myths were not meant for that purpose, and neither are my books, because these deeply rich allegorical tales contain wisdom keys that provide us with ways of meeting the seeming impossibly difficult challenges of the human condition. These challenges don’t change from generation to generation.  The problems that we’re faced with today were also faced by our ancestors thousands of years ago. From the minute we give out that first scream at birth, we’re in a life-and-death struggle between good and evil, whether we realise it or not – and often our adversaries prefer us not to realise it, as they soften us up for the killing blow.

That’s why I chose the archetypal symbol of the sword to begin this series of lessons that make up these mystery teachings, which are based on the stories in my own books and particularly The Grail Mysteries. The last article, Lesson 2, was about the faery woman who raises the sword from beneath the frozen Hart Lake under the stars of Capricorn, and I’ve shown various ways of getting in touch with the faery gold buried within our own frozen emotional pain and forging it into our own Fragarach, the Sword of Truth.

The real story of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden

I’ve described myself previously as a sort of story archaeologist – someone who digs underneath the story mats of the wandering troubadours and tale-tellers of old to find the original myths. What I didn’t say, though, is that when you eventually reach the bottom, what you find is not the first rug but a richly woven carpet depicting remarkably similar tales and sagas, with just small local differences, that must have been spread all over the Northern Hemisphere.

Why would that be? Well, ancient myths are stories that contain allegories and metaphors for cosmological truths that our ancestors wrote in the stars, and everyone north of the equator looked up at the same stars.  However, this form of storytelling was not just an an idle pastime of the wandering hunter gatherers; many  of these sagas were only written in the eternal stars because they held an eternal message.

Fast forward to modern times, when people are no longer taught the real meanings of these star stories, or the importance of what they represent, and we find others – Death Cult initiates with evil in their hearts – who pull up just a handful of the carpet’s silken threads and twist them into a whole new narrative which they use to serve their own war-like agendas.

This Gordian knot of deception becomes very clear when we examine the likely origins of the story of Adam and Eve – so hopefully you’re ready for a bit of untangling? Continue reading

On Sovereignty and Culture – rooting down through the Apocalypse

We’ve been on such a wild helter skelter ride, lately – a virtual Apocalypse of political revelations – that it’s easy to get mesmerised watching the marionettes on the world stage as they try to cling on to power while the hurricane of the spirit of Sovereignty challenges their citadels.

That said, I want to tell you about my new book, The Bright World of the Gods, which is based on the stories of our own indigenous culture. That’s because, in my experience, geo-political events don’t just happen randomly in a vacuum. When they are an organic ‘populist’ expression, they are the end result of an impetus that springs forth from the hearts and minds of the people and that has its source in spirituality first, and then culture.

Fire and Ice Part 2: Or Gene Wars!

Two weeks ago, I wrote an article called Fire and Ice: the real revolution we’ve been waiting for about the two different races of man on Earth – the Creators and the Takers. It was a bit of a breakthrough for me.  I became aware of this brain – not necessarily the one in the cerebral cortex – but perhaps I should say multi-dimensional intelligence (and no, I don’t mean ETs!) reaching around the Akashic Library of my experience and knowledge acquired over 65 years, and getting into some old, dusty and forgotten corners to put together previously unrelated stuff which was a revelation to me, once my synapses had joined up the dots – a process which was ongoing, even as I was writing it. So that was good …!

But then fast forward to today – and a huge piece of magical synchronicity landed on my desk in the form of some talks that Stefan Molyneux did more than a year ago, entitled The Truth About Gene Wars, and I really recommend them if your interest became at all piqued by the subject from my article. It turns out that are two separate genetic strains within humanity, and those who have studied the different traits of this genetic divide call it the r/K selection theory.

The Unbearable Yearning for Paradise Lost

Because of the bastardisation of mythology into history over the past 1500 years or so, any research on the internet about the origins of the story of the Garden of Eden quickly disintegrates into a wild goose chase for its original location, with any number of possible Mesopotamian locations being offered up.

And so via that cyber rabbit hole of infinite length and diversity of possibilities, we are quickly shepherded away from searching for the real meaning of the story of The Garden of Eden, or at least one that makes sense to mystics and mythologists. Continue reading

How to Get a Camel Through the Eye of a Needle – Opening the Third Eye

Part of the toolkit of the shaman healer is something called ‘shamanic counselling’. But it’s not to be confused with ordinary counselling in which the client tells their problems to a human counsellor. With shamanic counselling, the client tells their problems to their own spirit guides, and those guides answer them, personally. Continue reading
