Ep.7 The Origins of the Easter Bunny – With Clarity Bartleet

Published

on

The following article was written by a very inspiring friend of mine that I was fortunate enough to recently meet. Her name is Clarity Bartleet and in the last few years she has gone through some incredible transformations. She has been inspired to get in touch with her divine femininity and also connect with many women through various women’s circles to help them reconnect as well.

We were fortunate enough  to sit down and record an Episode of “The Way Within” with her, (www.thewaywithin.me) and discuss the Origins of the Easter Story and much more. You can listen or watch that episode which is linked at the bottom of this article.

Here’s the article Clarity wrote for Collective Evolution:

  The Goddess Roots of the Easter Tale

 What is Easter really about? We all know the story of Jesus resurrecting and exiting a cave after three days of death, but what does this mean? And where did the story originate from?

Like many Christian tales and celebrations, Easter and its symbolism and myths were borrowed from a formerly uncovered universal wisdom. A wisdom that was transmitted from the Earth — from The Goddess Herself — to tribal cultures from all around the world who worshipped her. In fact, we find similar stories and symbols among many different, scattered and once remote cultures all around the globe.

It is difficult to trace the exact roots of the original myth of Easter, for much Wisdom (e.g. teachings through stories and songs) has been lost due to the oppression that tribal cultures suffered, and the loss of their oral mode of transmission of knowledge. However, one of the most obvious connections that we can still trace to Easter comes to us from Ostara, the Germanic Pagan Goddess of Ancient Europe. To be clear, Ostara is connected to other fertility Goddesses found throughout the world and worshiped at a different time in history (e.i. Astarte, Ashtaroth, Eastre, Ishtar, etc.). Ostara in particular represents Spring and the energy of fertility, love, sexuality and growth. Pagans worshiped her to help her bring fertility and growth onto the land.

In relation to Easter and the story of Jesus, Ostara similarly emerges from the Earth and re-awakens after a time of deep sleep (or death) during winter. Both stories then cary the Wisdom of the cycle of life, death and rebirth — an important lesson about dynamics of Nature and life itself that every human being needs to learn. Why? Well, because, for example, our modern Western culture has us valuing constant growth and life over decline and death (that is essential to bring about life). As a result, we perhaps irrationally fear death and do not understand the importance of going inwards, retreating, taking time for ourselves and taking a break from the business of our lives in order to find balance and flourish again when the time is right. The main and important difference, however, between the Christian’s story of Easter and the myth of Ostara is that Jesus’ resurrection is masculine focused (androcentric) and anthropocentric. It ignores the role of nature and our deep connection to her, and it ignores the feminine aspect as the carrier of the potential for the cycle of life, death and rebirth.

The story of Jesus’s resurrection is then a distorted version of some very important lessons and a fundamental wisdom about about the dynamics of nature and of our own Nature that might leave us unsatisfied and confused. Hence, the importance of questioning any religious stories that aim at subliminally explaining the dynamics of the world and our role and potential within it. In fact, we should always question or at least contemplate any story that we are exposed to, especially contemporary ones delivered through the impactful images of modern movies and technologies. And instead of passively exposing ourselves to these stories, we should perhaps more actively research more ancient stories and tales that incorporate the feminine wisdom, the universal wisdom from the Earth. The story of Ostara is one of these stories. It is the story of a not so perfect and not so virgin Goddess worth worshipping nevertheless that teaches us about our human Nature and potential. Here it is:

Ostara is the Goddess responsible for bringing Spring each year. But one year, as she arrived late, the first thing that she saw was a pitiful little bird who lay dying in the snow, his wing frozen by the cold. Ostara felt so guilty! She cradled the shivering creature into her arms and eventually saved his life. Feeling sorry that the poor wingless bird could no longer fly, she turned him into a snow hare called Lepus and gave him the ability to run rapidly so he could evade all hunters. Also. to honor his earlier life as a bird, she gave him the ability to lay eggs in all the colors of the rainbow. Ostara eventually took Lepus as a pet and they became lovers. That’s right! The Goddess and the bunny. Together they galloped about the prairies and made love in the fields as Pagans used to — to spread fertility on the land. But one day, Ostara lost her temper with her passionate lover’s numerous affairs. Filled with anger, she grabbed him by the tail and swung him around and around over her head and threw him into the sky where he would remain for eternity as the constellation Lepus (The Hare) forever positioned under the feet of Orion, The Hunter constellation. Much later, remembering all the good times they had enjoyed together, Ostara softened and allowed Lepus to return to Earth once every year. But only during her own Festival and only to give away his colorful eggs to the children there. And this is how the “Easter Bunny” came about…

In this story, we notice that Ostara is also tightly connected to the Maiden archetype who represents very similar energies to the Goddess: full potential, opportunity for growth and rebirth after the Winter (which is connected to the Crone archetype). The Maiden, one of the most fundamental archetypes of the feminine psyche and development, reminds us to dream big. She is the innocent, yet powerful and sexual being who has not yet been conditioned to believe that her dreams will not come true. So she dreams, she imagines, she visualizes and creates with her beauty and purity. And by doing so, she manifests miracles on Earth!

So let spring time be a time for us to reclaim Easter and our inherent power and beauty as human beings. Ostara comes to us in this season to connect to the Earth, to The Goddess, to the feminine essence of Nature and Her potential for growth and (re-)birth through her fertility and sexuality. Let this season be a time to celebrate our own growth, (re-)birth, fertility and sexuality!

Ostara also comes to us to remind us to plant seeds (literally and also) in our psyche and in the cosmos: to dream about the projects that we wish to see manifest as the year unfolds, as the flowers bloom and to benefit from the coming boost of energy (the spring!) that we are getting from nature. All around us, growth is happening. And because we are inherently connected to Nature, it is important to follow her patterns; to learn from her and perhaps reconnect to more ancient ways of grasping wisdom from the Earth: by observing the seasons, the flowers and understand the extent of our potential as human beings to manifest and to blossom.

12 American Astronauts Visit Planet Serpo & Some Of ‘Theirs’ Came Here: The Alleged ‘Project Serpo’

Published

on

Project Serpo is rumoured to be a top secret Special Access Program (SAP) between the United States government and an alien civilization who referred to their planet as Serpo, located in the Zeta Reticuli star system. Details of this supposed program have appeared all over the internet, and stem from unverifiable sources that one would never use to bring credibility to the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

We already have an enormous amount of verified data and verified whistleblowers to pull from, but again, it’s also fun to speculate every once in a while, and why do we always have to lend our ear to a “verifiable source.” Obviously, it’s understandable if you’re trying to reach a wider audience, but we could be potentially missing out on some interesting revelations. It’s always a worthwhile effort to take a look and see what might be true, especially with regards to stories that, at the present moment, we can’t really say to be true or false.

As long as it’s clear we are speculating, I think it’s a healthy and creative thing to do, especially in light of all the evidence that does already exist suggesting human/alien interaction. We, for the most part, know we are not alone and know that some sort of interaction has taken place, at least that’s our stance here at Collective Evolution, and we know much of the world feels the same way.

It’s truly one of the most exciting times in human history to be alive and although there is, I believe, ample evidence to suggest that humanity has gone through phases of extraterrestrial contact before, it’s looking like it might be on the verge of happening again, at least that’s the gist we seem to be hearing from many different prominent people who would be in the position to ‘know.’

It’s the biggest story in human history, one that leaves no aspect of it untouched.

Since we dropped the Atom bomb, UFO sightings have been increasing every single year, it’s something that can’t really be hidden anymore as citizens all over the world have shot footage of crafts performing maneuvers that defy our known laws of physics and aerodynamics, including the government.

This was the sentiment of multiple insiders from within the U.S. Department of Defence, who recently released three videos of real UFOs shot by their military pilots. The director of the Pentagon’s ‘aerial threat’ program to investigate UFO’s, Louis Elizondo, along with one of the pilots, stated that they believe the objects they saw were indeed not from this world. Elizondo specifically stated that he believes there is ample evidence suggesting “that we are not alone, whatever that means.”

Keep in mind, there are thousands of these encounters described in the declassified literature.

Regardless of what you believe, the maneuvers these objects performed is unattainable by a man made air-craft, or perhaps not?

Here’s an interesting comment from the recently retired Director of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Skunkworks, Steve Justice:

“This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time. It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a driver system that alters space-time metric. We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to “realize” the capability.” 

In the comment, he is also verifying UFOs, and goes a step further with claim to know how the craft is operating.

Shortly after this, the Canadian government made a coin commemorating one of its most famous UFO encounters, and actually showed a highly radioactive piece of the craft on mainstream television, it was in a special radioactive shielding case.

So, as you can see, it’s evident something is going on here and it seems as though we are being acclimatized to the idea that we’re not alone, and that we have been, and are being visited.

As with most other major stories that come from mainstream media and ‘official government’ sources, it’s hard to completely trust without being a little cautious, given the fact that the citizenry has been lied to on numerous occasions, with so many different topics, in order to serve elitist agendas.

The UFO topic, perhaps, could be no different, and I elaborate further on that possibility in the article linked below:

Wikileaks Documents Suggest That Wernher Von Braun Tried To Warn Us About A Fake Alien Invasion

Disclosure Is Happening

This brings me to the main point of the article, which is, the highest ranking people from within military agencies, intelligence agencies, and more, now number close to one thousand, and many of them are stating from their experience that they know for a fact that some of these UFOs, are actually extraterrestrial space craft, and the government, or perhaps Deep State, has known about it for a long time.

Even a course at the Turkish university called “Ufology & Exopolitics,” is being put into place. The purpose of the class is to prepare students for the possibility of extraterrestrial contact.

A class tutor, Erhan Kolbasi, told the Dogan News Agency, “We believe representatives from the world and extraterrestrial civilizations will soon be making official contact with each other. We thinking they will be in an open and mass contact… It will be the biggest change seen in the history of the world.”

The course will concentrate on the history of the UFO/extraterrestrial contact, as well as the implications of extraterrestrial contact and more. You can read more about that story here.

This Is Why Speculation About SERPO Is OK

Speculation is OK, it’s fine to dive into stories that aren’t entirely verifiable, especially when you are speaking about a verifiable phenomenon. Having been a researcher in the field for more than a decade, I can tell you that the deeper you dive in, the more you realize what you don’t know, and it just gets more confusing the more you lend your ear to these kinds of stories because you know that it’s actually a legitimate possibility, and in some cases, a high probability. Plus it helps expand our consciousness and what’s possible.

But speculation and imagination is all we have. Based on what we know today, it’s not hard to speculate at what exactly has gone on with regards to the UFO/extraterrestrial cover-up. For decades there’s been, as former head of the CIA Roscoe Hilenkoetter put it in 1960, “Official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”

Have we been manipulated to ridicule and not-believe over the decades?

Despite the fact that this article focuses on Serpo, many of the stories of supposed contact do hold a lot of legitimacy behind them, and many of the stories seem to corroborate. The Serpo story is just different, perhaps that’s why it seems so unique.

If Serpo was real, it was defiantly a Special Access Programs (SAP). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

The previously classified Pentagon UFO program mentioned above, was a SAP, but based on the amount of secrecy that exists within the military industrial complex, it’s safe to say we really have no idea what type of programs has existed or exist today.

“The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data. Maybe when this group of nations acquires more precise and definite information, it will be possible to release the news to the world.”
– General Carlos Castro Cavero, Spanish Air Force General (a statement given to the world in the 1970s)

Questions about extraterrestrial life would be vast. Where do they come from? How do they operate? How do they breath? What type of technology is used for the craft? What do they know about the nature of reality that we don’t? What do they eat? How do they communicate? Why are they here? What’s it like on their planet?

As you can imagine there are countless amounts of questions to be asked, and other actions our world of secrecy would want to take to find out more, which is why Project Serpo is so intriguing.

The story originates from the famous Roswell Crash of 1947. Apparently, there have been several of these crashes, with, as Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell once said, “bodies recovered.”

Apparently, there were multiple extraterrestrials who survived these crashes, and one from the Roswell incident was friendly, calm, and attempted to communicate.

Labelled as “EBE1”, the being picked up the english language quite quick, and informed those who were holding him captive that he was from a planet called Serpo, approximately 40 light years away in the Zeta Reticuli Galaxy.

Apparently, the extraterrestrial worked with his damaged ship to try and communicate with his planet, but failed. He eventually passed away, but in the early 1950’s the US military supposedly came into contact with this alien race, called the Ebens, who lived on Serpo. As communications transpired over the next decade, an exchange program was set up between the two planets, and 10 American men, along with two American women, were selected for the experiment.

The Exchange

According Len Kasten who spoke to Gaia:

“The exchange was scheduled to occur at Holloman Air Force Base on April 24, 1964, with Approval From President John F. Kennedy. Two Eben spaceships landed as planned. A contingent of American government personnel greeted them. The 12 American astronauts prepared to embark on their adventure, but for some reason, the exchange got postponed. The Ebens retrieved the remains of their dead comrades and left. The Ebens returned in July 1965 and picked up their passengers.”

The story is somewhat depicted towards the end of Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Apparently, they completed the 40 light year trip in approximately 10 months.

According to the sources available, when the astronauts landed there were a number of Ebens who were fluent in English. The planet has two suns, and is extremely bright and hot, our astronauts had trouble coping with the climate the whole time they were there.

The astronauts stayed on the planet for approximately 13 years, learning the Eben’s religious beliefs, examining their technologies, customs, what they ate, and overall way of life. The planet was said to have just over half a million citizens.

Apparently, two of our own astronauts died during the expedition due to radiation exposure and a lack of ability to adjust to the climate.

The Voyage Home

Len Kasten describes the trip home:

“Two Americans liked life on Serpo so much, they decided to stay there. The remaining astronauts Returned Home in 1978 and the government quarantined them for an entire year. During that time, they had many debriefings, which resulted in a 3,000 page report. They were then allowed to go back to their normal lives. Little is known about their lives since, except the last surviving one died in 2002. There has been no communication with Ebens on Serpo since 1985, so it is not known what happened to the Americans who chose to stay on the planet.”

Fascinating to contemplate, to say the least, isn’t it? Again, I do not feel it’s wrong to speculate, as long as you make it clear that you are speculating. Sometimes, sharing information like this may be hurtful to the truth movement behind this phenomenon.

Len Kasten, a UFO researcher, freelance writer, and a former member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena and the Mutual UFO Network, wrote a book documenting the experience titled, Secret Journey To Planet Serpo: A True Story of Interplanetary Travel.” (joe affiliate link can go here)

Here’s a short interview with him.

A Truly Fascinating Story

This is a story that fascinates even the most rigid of UFO researchers, but again, nothing can really be verified about it. We can’t say for certain that it actually happened.

Below is an interview with Bill Ryan, formerly of the activist group Project Camleot. He currently runs a forum, called Project Avalon where, apparently a lot of the official SERPO documents were leaked.

He has a good grasp on this story, despite the fact that this clip is more than a decade old.

This Exercise Breaks The Psychological Limits Society Puts On Us (Try It)

Published

on

Elliott Hulse is an online sensation who has racked up over 250 million views on YouTube. His videos feature him speaking on a wide array of topics from how to deadlift correctly to finding your life path.

His popular video monologues have made him somewhat of a guru to many people that are looking to the internet for answers, and he humbly accepts this position while letting his followers know that he doesn’t have all the answers.

I interviewed Elliott for our podcast, The G and Coletti Show (link below), and I was fascinated by his daily practise of what he called Bioenergetics. This practise is based on the premise that the movement of our bodies has been rigidified by society.

We are told from a young age when and when not to speak, sit, and move. Our school system is largely based on protocol and structure and does not encourage free thinking. A young person restricts their natural impulses because they fear the consequences. He tells me that this lack of movement leaches into our psyche and deeply affects how we think and feel.

What is Bioenergetics?

Elliott created a routine consisting of 9 movements, inspired by years of being an athlete, personal trainer, and coach. He talks about how to do it in the video below. He was inspired by Osho’s Dynamic Meditation and Alexander Lowen’s Energetic Exercises, as well as several other dynamic flexibility and mobility routines. The most interesting and profound of the 9 exercises are the “Shake and Vibrate” and the “The Warrior Pound.” These movements have an emphasis on physical pattern disruption and old age pre-battle techniques.

Shake and Vibrate

One of the most fun and freeing movements in this routine is the “Shake and Vibrate” exercise. This is where you move in an erratic, unpatterned, unconventional way, somewhat like dancing but without any limitations, rhythm, or flow. The mind and body operate in sync and if your body is moving in a rigid, patterned way, the mind will follow suit. According to Elliot, when you break these patterns and move without restriction, you open your mind up and increase creativity and spontaneity.

This sounds simple enough but let me warn you, it is awkward and embarrassing, especially if done in public. He recommends doing the shake and vibrate before you work out. The obvious benefits are that you don’t need a stimulant such as caffeine or pre-workout shakes; however, it takes some guts to do this at the squat rack. As Elliot says “be a BOSS” and don’t worry about what people think of you.

The Warrior Pound

The Warrior Pound is the last exercise in this routine. This movement is similar to something that the Native Americans used to perform as a pre-battle ritual. You lift your arms over your head, hop up, and land stiffly with your feet landing flat on the ground. This should create a firm thump as you hit the ground and you are to let out a “hoo” sound every time you land. This exercise is to ground you before you continue your day.

http://elliotthulse.com/daily-bioenergizer-warm/

Elliott’s Challenge to Increase Creativity and Spontaneity

Elliott challenges everyone to try this routine every day for 21 days, and he is confident that you will notice dramatic changes in your life! The great thing about this routine is that it is free and can be done anywhere. So what do you have to lose?

We had a very interesting podcast with Elliot and we know that his techniques can change lives for the better. Hear Elliott eloquently explain these techniques and their benefits in the podcast below.

Les ‘Survivorman’ Stroud Talks Connecting To The Earth, Outdoor Meditation, & Surviving A Car Accident

Published

on

Les Stroud is a documentary filmmaker and a survival expert, but prior to the release of the Survivorman show, few would have predicted that people would be so fascinated by a man simply living in the wild for a week or more.

Why is just surviving so interesting to us?

The answer is probably a combination of a few variables, but after speaking with Les, I believe that the greatest of these is our disconnection from the Earth. We live in these artificial environments that we have created out of concrete, brick, and steel. Our flesh very rarely touches the ground or the trees and if it does we consider ourselves dirty. The modern day definition of survival is making sure our weekly paycheck can cover our food, utilities, and household expenses. We are constantly balancing these equations in our head and it’s no wonder most people feel a little off. There is nothing natural about our present lifestyle and watching Les reminds us of what real Survival is all about.

We had the chance to interview Les and here are a few of the most memorable takeaways.

What can we do to reconnect to the earth?

“It takes 3 days.”

According to Les, it takes him 3 days in nature to feel that he’s reconnected. I bet most people would think that they could just go out into nature and feel connected within a few hours, and certainly the effects of being outdoors, even for a short amount of time, are scientifically proven to be profound; however I believe it would be overoptimistic to think that we could live is these concrete jungles for long periods of time and then take a walk in the forest and all is immediately cured. The mind and body need a bit of time to adjust. Think about those instances when you’ve taken a break from the gym, or school, or even work — did you return to the exact point you had left off, or did you need some time to get back into the flow? I’m guessing the latter, because we need time to assimilate and adapt.

“Walk on the ground barefoot.”

Les claims that this practise, also known as “earthing,” can not only help connect you to nature but is also a cure for jet lag. With all the pills and gadgets that claim to counter the negative effects of jet lag, walking barefoot on the grass seems overly simplistic — or so I thought. A quick Google search, however, will reveal a slew of articles and testimonials proclaiming the jet lag curing effects of simply walking barefoot on some grass or soil for a mere 20 minutes.

How close has Les come to dying during an episode?

When it comes to Les Stroud, nothing is boring or superficial. When asked what was the most dangerous situation he’s been in, you would expect him to tell you a story about the tigers of Bangladesh or a close encounter with a North American brown bear, but you would be wrong. He was in a car accident.

Les was driving in Mongolia when the driver lost control and the truck he was in rolled twice. He sustained a punctured lung, 2 broken ribs, and a shoulder injury. He mentions time slowing down when the truck began to roll and that ‘something’ — call it intuition or some divine presence — told him to move his head at a particular time; if he had not taken that advice, the Survivorman would not have survived.

To hear Les recount that chilling experience in his own words, click the Soundcloud link below or go to the Collective Evolution podcast page (The G and Coletti Show). We get into his unique meditation practice, earthing, and even his experience asking indigenous peoples about our modern way of life and where we went wrong.
