How to attract Money into your life!

1. Pray for Abundance and Prosperity

Dear God,
God of an infinite and abundant universe. I know affirm that there is plenty for all. Plenty for everyone to spare and to share and an infinity supply to support us in our lives and our sacred, divine live purpose. I now ask for your intervention, bringing sustenance and support to every person on this planet at this time. I ask you, God, to help our earth to be restored to the experience of your abundance of plenitude. Help those in need right now! Help me to know your presence through the extension of your love with supply and support and I ask that every man, woman and child will be given adequate safe and comfortable shelter, healthy, organic food to eat, medical supply, clean drinking water, clothing as needed relevant to their environment, and also that we have a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives, which is essentially, spiritual food for us all. 

Help us God, to know that you are watching over us and protecting us, and supplying our needs infinitely and abundantly. Help me to touch the experience of your presence with material support and supply that I need for daily sustenance and for my sacred and holy life purpose. Thank you God for opening your arms and helping me to open my arms to receive this beautiful bounty and supply & support that I know you give to me continuously in spite of any blockages in my thinking & feeling, which are keeping me from receiving your supply and support. Please help me to heal my mind and my feelings away from this fear, away from these blockades, and to freely and continuously be in touch with the abundant and divine flow of this beautiful, perfect universe that you’ve created. Help me to feel and know that continuous supply and that support. Help me to feel secure about my future and to know that you help me to ensure that my bills are paid, that all of my needs are met, and that, as I take guided action, I am in that flow with you. I am in harmony with your universe. Help me to receive miracles of abundance, notice the signs of your presence and support and bring to me that what I most urgently need right now.

Please help me to receive it. Help us all to know that you are with us, that you love us unconditionally and you do supply all of our needs and support as a loving parent supplies their offspring, just as we are your holy children. Thank you God for reminding us daily of your presence, helping us to keep the faith to stay positive and to know through our lives that our faith is the miraculous power that connects us to you.

“Please now fill my mind and heart with faith and trust that ALL IS WELL that I am continuously supported – financially, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and in all other ways. Help me to clearly hear and receive your divine guidance, which is sent to me via your angels, for I am to take guided action in the direction of my life’s purpose, which is one with your will”

Please help us to be at peace and to have that faith to taking care of us and supplying our needs even as it comes through as divine guidance and helping us to take action steps so that we can be co-creators of the answers to our prayers. Thank you God for helping everybody everywhere with their needs and especially the children. Help us God to balance giving and receiving according to your will. I now give to you any fears about my supply, any worries I have about the lack of money in my life – I give them to you for transmutation, healing and upliftment.

Help me to raise my thoughts to the level of miracle making and miracle living. Help me to be a living example of your truth and your promises. Help me to be a teacher of God by walking my talk, by being centered in faith always and by being a living example of your prosperity and your generosity. Help me to have enough for the issues that are near and dear to my heart. Help me to purify my mind and my intentions, so that I am focused on divine and selfless service and focused more upon giving than upon receiving. As you ease my mind about my supply, I am more able to put my entire energy and entire motivation into serving through my God-given talents and passions. And helping your will for peace on earth, one person at the time – beginning with me – and with everyone else. May we all be at peace. May we all be filled with faith. May we all know God’s infinite supply and love. And so it is.

 2. Tithing

is a powerful way to acknowledge your Source and remind you that your relationship with money is not just a material relationship, but also an energetic or spiritual one. A good rule of thumb is to give away 10% of your net income with love. When we tithe, we acknowledge and honor our financial partnership with God or our Inner Wisdom. According to the Old Testament, tithing was widely practiced in ancient times as a way to care for those in need. Tithing means “one-tenth,” and families would give away 10% of their earnings to be divided among the poor. It’s so powerful to give money freely, expecting nothing in return. We’re reminded we are co-creating our lives with the Divine, and our money is part of that co-creation. Our money flows to us from God, and so we allow it to flow back to God, in an endless circle. Our tithing encourages gratitude. It’s a great way to say thank you to the inspiration and abundance always available to us. We can’t stand in gratitude and lack at the same time, and of course we increase our prosperity by our internal expansion. While 10% is the traditional percentage for tithing, you can choose whatever works best for you.

4. Reconnect with the Spirit of Money

  1. The most important thing about money that you need to understand is that it’s an energy being, it’s alive.
  2. Think of it like an Elemental, a very powerful, very important Elemental. I would go on to say that it’s probably the most important Elemental in your life today. That’s because of the nature of the world we’re living in. Especially if you’re living in a Western country, where you need to have money to survive.
  3. Money allows you to do the most basic things, such as drinking fresh water, having somewhere to live, having clothes on your body, being able to express yourself creatively. Eating every day. The most basic things in life come through with your exchange of money, therefore it is extremely important.
  4. Another aspect of money I would like you to understand is that money is not evil. Some people will use money in a negative way, but money itself has nothing negative about it. Once you identify and you contact the energy of money, you’ll see it for yourself. There is absolutely nothing negative about money. It’s all-inclusive, it’s creative, it’s nurturing. It’s warm, it’s beautiful. And I want you to be able to experience this.
  5. For this exercise you’re going to need some money to hold. Notes are better than coins but if you don’t have any at the moment, the coin will do. But next time, try to have a note, and the bigger the note the better.
  6. Put the note between your two palms, resting gently in front of you. It’s going to look a little bit like you are praying, but your hands resting forward so that they are nice and comfortable.
  7. It’s really important, while you are doing this exercise, that you do not ask for stuff! I have noticed that there is a tendency for somebody when they’re immediately contacting money or when they feel that they are starting to contact money, to start asking for stuff.  You know, ‘Oh, I want a new car, I want a new job, I want money for food, I want whatever’ – you know, it’s like, don’t do that.
  8. Think of it like you are going to meet and make a new friend, and if you are going to make a new friend, you’re not going to start by asking them for stuff.
  9. First get acquainted with the energy of money. And then we are going to allow it to express itself in our energy field. That’s all we are going to do right now.
  10. So hold the money between your palms and clear your mind.
  11. Next, we are going to feel the note. Just feel for it. Feel it between your palms. Allow it to be there.
  12. Soon it’s going to start feeling warm. There is some lovely warmth coming out of it. That’s the first signature that you are going to identify about money. It’s warm.
  13. Say ‘hi’ and tell it that you ALLOW IT TO EXPRESS ITSELF TO YOU.
  14. And then just listen.
  15. Quieten your mind and listen.
  16. See if any images, any thoughts come to your mind and allow that to happen.
  17. And if you are getting any sort of negative feedback from this exercise, that’s all you have to do – just thank the image, the feelings, blocks, and release them. They’re coming up now so that you can release them.
  18. It took me a few weeks to work through several blocks, and eventually I was able to just sit there and allow money to express itself to me.
  19. The next stage is to allow it into your energy field. Your energy field is your life, it’s you. It’s your body, it’s your thoughts, your emotions, your reality.
  20. So once you have a good, positive feedback from money, and you are allowing it to express itself to you completely and utterly, I want you to ask it to come into your life. To come into your energy field.
  21. And I can tell you it is going to be extremely happy to do so, because money likes nothing better than to be plentiful in your life. That’s the only way it can express itself – to be plentiful, to be in every aspect of your life.
  22. So how this translates on a practical level, is basically, you let the note between your hands become warm.
  23. You allow it to become warm, you allow it to become hot even. And you allow that warmth to grow, and to encompass you. To come into your life, and the flow of it, the love of it.
  24. The signature is extremely similar to that of Mother Earth because they are one and the same. Welcome it, embrace it.
  25. You can pause there, so that you can fully allow the experience to complete itself.
  26. After you are done, say thank you to the Elemental of money for having expressed itself fully to you.
  27. Open your eyes if they were closed, and put your money away.
  28. Remember, you must do this exercise at least once a day.

 3. Mantras

are sounds that can help you manifest things you want in life. Certain sounds create different vibrations for attracting particular things, like OM BRZEE NAMAHA for the flow of money by the teacher Dattatreya Siva Baba. It is easy to do and very powerful! You can find more here: http://dattatreyasivababamiracles.wordpress.com/mantras


Writing or chanting mantras will bring results. You can do one or the other, or both if you’re dedicated. Make sure you chant/write 108x, or 1008x a day. Pick a number you can stick with consistently. If you can spend 2-3hrs a day to do 1008, then do it. Also, be sure to focus on only 1 or 2 mantras, unless you have a lot of free time. Now remember, if at first you can’t do 1008x, that doesn’t mean its bad. Quality counts, not quantity. Think about it, it is better to chant a mantra 108x loud and clear with peace of mind, letting the sound vibrate into your entire being, rather than to just quickly chant it just to get it over with. Same with writing. Better to write 108x neatly with full focus than to just scribble to finish it up. You know your situation better than I do, pick what works for you. Good luck.

5. Visualization

One great way to increase your ability to manifest large amounts of money is to use the power of money visualization. First of all simply imagine that you are looking up at the big blue sky. It’s a gorgeous day, with only a few small puffy clouds in the distance above. Then imagine small little pieces of paper are coming from those clouds. They are £50.00 notes raining down!! They start increasing in numbers now, thousands, millions and even billions of notes are floating down! Notice the smell of these crisp new notes.  You are now in the midst of a major money visualization downpour! They are landing all over you, your house and the entire neighborhood and city! How does it feel to have those softly float down and land all over you? Do you feel abundant and free?

What are you going to do with this money? Think about it. If you could make your one personal heartfelt contribution to the planet with this abundance, what would you do? 

Go ahead and take ONE action towards that today!!  To manifest your dream life, simply start living your dream as if it’s already happening… Enjoy”

About Extra-Terrestrials, Cosmic Laws, Spirituality & Developing the Consciousness.

This information was given by Alaje, a teacher from the star system of the Pleiades. He is a member of a federation in which thousands of benevolent races are working together. This is not science fiction. If you are intelligent you will investigate this information before you criticize it. Many of us live here as volunteers in order to eliminate the negativity on Earth. Each one has his own abilities and tasks.

3431373The earth is in a process of transformation in order to move into a higher frequency.

Every planet goes through a transformation like this. It is the natural way of evolution. Everything in the universes is developing- nothing stands still. The Earth frequency is increasing slowly, it is higher than decades before.

That’s why some of you have the feeling that time is passing by quicker. This gives you the opportunity to develop your consciousness even faster, because there are more things happening in a short time and your thoughts are manifesting quicker. In these higher frequencies, nothing evil can exist. That’s the reason why the dark earth controllers which consists of Earth Humans and evil extra-terrestrials are doing everything to keep the earth frequency low. They are exploding atomic bombs on the ground and high in the sky to disturb the magnetic field of the earth.

They are spreading the energy of war, hate, competition and idiocy through the media and creating fear by manipulating the economy.

They have studied the human behavior for hundreds of years and are using the primitive drives and desires of the masses to keep them ignorant and unaware. They are afraid that the population will evolve and grow too much, so

…they even spread chemicals with planes to make the population ill!

They are doing even more- they want total control of everything! But there is a power that is able to stop them and this power is SPIRITUAL ENERGY!  The more people are using the spiritual power of real universal love, the easier it is to eliminate this threat. As long as you see the earth as divided countries, disliking each other and being in competition, you are making it very easy for the easy earth controllers. If you want to change a lower energy, you have to use a higher energy. In some cases this will come automatically, because the more humans suffer, the more they will look for new ways to overcome it. They will start to seek for the the Truth and the spiritual energy of the existence. So see it at a challenge and exercise for you to overcome the inner and outer negativity.

Start to work on your inner healing and development.  The higher frequencies which are coming from the Source of the Light are bringing all inner blockades and unhealed emotional patterns to the surface, so you can work on them and heal them. You can’t go to higher frequencies with blocking energies, unsolved matters, or hate and arrogance. Belligerent people with hate, arrogance, ego, or greed can’t stand these higher frequencies of love. They hate love. They hate people who are talking about love and insulting them. They hate

everything that expresses love, like harmonious music, beautiful colours in art, or nature. 

They hate especially people who are telling the truth, because their masks are falling down. They have the option and chance to overcome their ego, or stay negative and learn their lessons in their next lives. It is important to heal all character defects. Heal all karmic issues and traumatic experiences from this, or past life times and get rid of negative programmes of your society, like competition thinking, ego, envy, cults, false believe systems and hating people who are living on the other side of the planet.This will make the way free to develop your spiritual awareness. With a higher consciousness will understand that everything is energy: thoughts, feelings, objects, colours, music, forms… everything.

The universes are naturally full of living beings on different dimensions, but this is kept as a secret on your planet. Your dark governments ridicule the topics of extra-terrestrials and developing the consciousness in order that you have no interest in this and laugh about it. The people in power are lying to you for thousands of years about extra-terrestrials and Cosmic Laws. They don’t want you to know because they are afraid they’ll loose their power over you. If you don’t believe that, try to find out the truth in order to know. The proof exists but you have to find it by yourself. Only then you will believe and know.

They want you to create negative energies and work for them as slaves.by financing their wars with your taxes and deriding everything that has to do with spirituality and extra-terrestrials. They are showing you fake pictures from space so you will think that there is nothing out there. Find it out yourself. You will be very angry that they’ve always been lying to you!

The higher evolved people from other planets want you to be free from this system. The truth is that all the universes are inhabited. It is a natural thing and has nothing to do with science fiction. Many extra-terrestrials who visited Earth in the past were worshiped by primitive earth people as angels or Gods. This is the reason why you still have religions and believe systems on earth.

You are praying to extra-terrestrials who lived here thousands of years ago. Positive and negative extra-terrestrials. It makes no difference for the truth if you believe it or not, it has always been a reality. Try to find out. Thousands of earth people know this already, bu in a few years everybody will see that you were never alone in the Universe. Don’t be shocked when you see thousands of ships in the sky. Find out which ones are sending love. These are the spiritual ones. Some negative extra-terrestrial pretend to be us, the Pleiadians and some people have contacted them and spreading miss-information. Don’t be blinded with real UFO pictures, more important  is who is inside those ships.

There is a war between the light and the dark going on behind your backs to free you from the mind slavery that you are living in since 12000. years! You are not free on Earth. You have forgotten what freedom is. The only things you know are:

  • hate
  • violence
  • terror
  • cigarettes
  • drugs
  • taxes
  • fake governments for TV
  • fear
  • believe systems
  • superstition

The secret government is creating these things in order to control you! They are creating the terror themselves, so they can legally give more power to the military and control technologies. Their goal is to amplify the negative energy. Do you want to live in such a world? We know that many of you don’t believe that, so again, find out yourself. The evidence is there, but you have to make the effort to find it! You can read books by George Adamski, Bob Renaud, Howard Menger, George van Tassel and Elizabeth Klarer.

Erase the negativity in your mind and

concentrate on positive energy.

That is your power against the evil.They are powerless against this energy. That is why they want you to distract from this power. Don’t let the dark government manipulate you. They are using:

  • Television
  • Radio
  • Newspapers
  • Cigarettes
  • Drugs
  • Religions
  • TV-polititians
  • Military
  • Electro-magnetic waves
  • Self-made wars in order to keep you in a negative mode.

Everybody who is laughing about this information is already manipulated and has to learn more than others. An intelligent human first investigates a topic before he has an opinion about it.

The universe is inhabited by many beings; humanoid and not humanoid. Your governments had already contacts and are keeping it a secret. That is why your technology has been developed so fast in the last 50 years. You are living on this planet in order to learn how to stay positive, even in such a negative world. The meaning of live is the development of the consciousness, of the heart, of the mind, of the character in a more noble level – being spiritual even with negative energies around you. That is happening over many lives and on many planets, because the soul wants to learn everything. Every planet is a school in which you can go a step higher. Every souls has the goal to evolve higher, back to the source, the cosmic central consciousness. You call is “GOD”, but it’s not a person, it’s the Energy from which everything exists.

You have no knowledge about the universe because you have been given miss-information from your governments and priests.Even your earth history books, they have been re-written, or deleted in the Middle Ages. Discoveries about extra-terrestrial colonies were either kept in secret, or have been erased. Instead they are showing you the discovery of some animal bones and selling it to you as a sensation.They want to keep you dumb and ignorant so that only they have the knowledge  and power. Is this fair to you? Evidence is out there, but you have to find it yourself. They won’t tell you this on public TV!  If you really want to get knowledge, the Existence will show you the ways to find it. Most people on Earth have forgotten how to listen to the Soul – they are distracted on purpose in the negative society around them. Friends, it’s time to change this! You are living in a nightmare!

  • Erase every negative emotion in you!
  • Concentrate on positive emotions – try it at least.
  • Create the inner wish to gain knowledge about the Universe

Compare to other civilizations in the universe, you are young and in the Kindergarten. Don’t let the negative people disturb you. They stealing your energy and want you to keep you primitive as they are.

Be careful with smokers and alcohol drinkers. They are influences by negative astral beings, who are living in their auric field and eating their live energy. Everybody with spiritual power can see this.

If something is vibrating higher than you, it is invisible for you. This is nothing mystical. There is no mystical thing – it is simply higher spiritual science that most people don’t know! Negative people are trying to argue with you and make you angry and powerless.

Positive people are giving you love, power and knowledge.

You have always a choice who you want to have on your side: the light, or the Darkness. Love, or hate. Don’t let them deceive you when they say they are spiritual and at the same time they are smoking or are following a religion.

A spiritual human is taking care of his health, because he knows self-love.

and he is worshiping  nobody, because he is taking responsibility for his live! Only if you love yourself, you are able to love others. A smoker who is destroying himself, does not love himself and has to learn it first.Everybody has to make their choice now if they want to live for positive or the negative. Don’t waste your live with stupid TV-shows junk food, drugs, or religions who killed millions of people in the past. When you came to Earth, your plan was to evolve into something higher, not into something lower! Think about it.

The negative thoughts from millions of people since thousands of years are forcing the earth to get rid of them. That is why you have chaotic weather, earth quakes, floods, volcano eruptions. Earth is not only suffering from gas pollution, but also from thought pollution. Thoughts are energy,  and energy has always an effect on the universe, because everything in the existence is connected. This is higher science. Try to charge your thoughts with positive energy whenever you can. Concentrate on friendliness, not on hate. Are you able to do this? There are thousands of people like me on Earth who can help you to achieve this.

We are the Lightworkers who are using the Light of the higher realms of existence to eliminate negativity. In your history, you have been calling us Angels.

Everybody who is working for the light is attacked extremely from the Dark Side. Therefore it is important that the Lightworkers increase their light even more! Don’t let yourself be discouraged by negative people, or problems that you are facing. Keep your focus on the goal:

Help this planet to dive in the spiritual light where nothing negative can exist.

The experiment “Earth” in which we wanted to see, if we can hold our light in a negative environment is coming slowly to an end. The dark side want to prevent this. Don’t let skeptics, arrogant people, or fake paid psychologists discourage you. They are afraid of love and of people with more knowledge than they have. They will need many lives until they are ready for higher wisdom. It is their free will. Every flower has it’s own time to blossom. The more light you are sending out of your heart, the weaker the dark side is becoming. The more the dark side is attacking you for this, the more it is a compliment for you that you are doing it well! The fight against the evil is taking place more on the inside than on the outside, in your heart, in your thinking. The energy you are sending is important.

If you are thinking negative inside, you will increase the chaos around you, because your are feeding it.

If you want to eliminate the chaos on the Planet, sends thoughts of love out. These thoughts will be carried through the morphogenetic field to the whole planet.That is how you can destroy the plan of the Dark Side. They are planing chaos, not only on this planet but also on the whole galaxy. Are we going to allow this? The dark side is using the television to lie to you. 90% of the TV-shows have the permission to make you dumb!  They don’t want you to think about the meaning of live. They want you to believe that everything is OK.

The biggest lie-shows are those that have to do with politics. They are showing you TV-politicians and fake elections to make you think that you have the right to vote.

The real people in power are never on TV and they are elected from their own family members.

As long as you allow such people to rule over you, you will stay their slave to finance their wars with your taxes. Imagine in what kind of world you want to live in. Imagine a world without violence, without military, without politicians, or sanctimonious priests, without superstition, without believe systems and without lies. Imagine a world where only Love rules, where everybody has everything they need, where knowledge is available for everybody and the contact to higher evolved planets is a natural thing. You have to build the strong inner wish to live in such a world. The more people who can imagine, and send these thoughts of love, the easier you can steer the evolution of the planet into a positive direction.

Begin to listen to the words of your soul, not to the words they are sending you through television and radio. You can only listen to the words of your soul when you are in silence, without stress and noise.

Most people are concentrating daily on hate, enviousness, arguments and arrogance. They are living unconscious – not conscious, and wasting their life. Make your decision now: in what kind of world do you want to live? Sends thoughts of Love to the whole planet. This is disturbing the dark side more than anything else. Imagine how the whole planet is filled with the Light of Love and this light is burning all the evil away. Now is the time to proof to yourself whether you really are an adult in your mind, or not. Somebody who likes hate and violence is less evolved than an animal, or a plant!

The meaning of live is the evolution of your consciousness and the love in your heart.

It’s not your car, your mobile phone, your bank account, your religions, sports, horror movies, or violence over others. It is simply your love in your heart. Only if you think with your heart, you are on the winner’s side. This is the key to a higher existence.

Living in harmony with nature and the earth

Getting Started – Small steps we can take…

Consumption

  • Avoid buying newly manufactured things, instead buy second hand or make our own.
  • Avoid large chain stores and supermarkets.
  • Buy things from small and local businesses.
  • Favour worker cooperatives over corporations.
  • Wherever possible buy direct from producers.
  • Support local currencies.
  • Trade or give gifts in preference to using money.

Communities

  • Smile at people and meet their eyes.
  • Give open-minded/hearted time to those people around us.
  • Organise parties and celebrations (eg. a dinner party where everyone brings a homemade dish or a childrens party where each parent organises a game)
  • Organise rotating work parties and skill-sharing events.
  • Vision together the future of our communities and make it happen by a combination of negotiations with local councils and direct action. (If you think that unused roadside could make a good veg garden then get some friends together and just go ahead and do it)

Food And Land

  • Propagate and plant edible perennial plants wherever possible on any available land.
  • Learn how to grow food and save seeds.
  • Set up personal and community food growing.
  • Stick to seasonal, local and organic foods.
  • Eat meat in moderation.
  • Have a go at making bread, preserving food, making cheese, brewing etc..
  • Enjoy cooking and eating good food. Treat our food with reverence.
  • Learn what wild plants grow in our areas and learn how to use them for food and medicine.
  • Protect and encourage biodiversity and wild areas (eg. a small wild patch at the bottom of your garden could be a haven for birds and small animals).
  • Build a pond!

Energy

  • Use wood (biomass) for heating. Install wood burners. Take firewood from the waste stream and plant local or personal firewood supplies. In a climate like Britain’s, short rotation coppice crops such as willow can be fully productive in 3 years and a 30 x 50m area can heat an efficient family house.
  • Heat water with wood and solar energy. (A solar water heater can easily be made from scrap materials in a day or two.)
  • Use renewable electricity. Switch mains connections to suppliers who only deal in renewable energy.
  • Set up and use local or personal energy production systems. Small scale hydroelectric systems in particular offer simply maintained systems with high and reliable returns for the amount of invested energy.
  • Practice basic woodwork, metalwork etc to make and repair basic items and tools.
  • Compost food and human waste to build soil fertility and reduce energy demands of waste disposal.

Lifestyle

  • Withdraw investment from houses. Move to a cheaper home or make our own (most cheaply done without permission).
  • Work less.
  • This will free up time and energy to develop sustainable ways of living as well as removing support from destructive systems.
  • Do not take employment from organisations which are unsustainable or whos actions are not benefiting the world.
  • Maximise our autonomy from state and corporate control structures.
  • Move from urban to rural areas and start working some land.

Consideration

  • Consider what elements of our world and society are of greatest value to us (air, water, food supplies, medicines…?)
  • Consider what elements /service / products we could happily do without (war, this year’s fashion, more DVDs, a bigger car…?)
  • Be aware that the more we have of the latter, the more we threaten the former.
  • Whenever we spend money or play an active role in society, take time to consider the consequences of our actions. (Buying a tank of fuel supports the violent occupation of the middle east, buying cheap clothes supports sweatshops and child labour, buying from transnational corporations funds the extraction of capital from poorer countries and the erosion of human rights)
  • Consider our modern world from the point of view of our ancesters.
  • Count our blessings.
  • Appreciate the beauty and fragility of life, human and otherwise.
  • Make time to appreciate and congratulate ourselves – we are all amazing and powerful beings.
  • Smile, laugh, love and dream. Be present and don’t worry.

_______________________________________________________________________
Since 2003 we have been living and building on the land, working in environmental projects and community.  We have found that for a few thousand pound and a few months work it is possible to create simple shelters that are in harmony with the natural landscape, ecologically sound and are a pleasure to live in.  There is something powerfully alluring in such natural buildings.  Their simplicity and cost makes them accessible; their beauty and use of natural materials remind us of our ancestral right and ability to live well as part of the landscape/nature/earth.  We believe this dream is possible for anyone with genuine intention, will and hard work.  Through this website is our best advice to inspire and assist anyone who is interested in similar ideas.

Shelter :: Earthlea


We will shortly be starting to build a three bedroom house. It will have the same hobbitat style and use the same natural materials. It will however contain enough space for teenage children and be of sufficient quality to last a satisfied lifetime.
If you are interested in coming along you could give a hand or do a course

Materials hunt

As always we will be trying to use reclaimed and natural materials wherever possible. Since our budget is next to nothing we are also welcoming donations of things that need to come new. We are on the look out for any useful materials, including:
EPDM / heavy duty plastic for DPM/tanking and roof membranes
Expanded Polystyrene or similar for solid floor insulation. – anyone got a lorry load or two of uneeded sheets / old packaging etc?
Second hand heavy duty tarps, old marquee, lorry curtain sides etc for protecting membranes, or large amount of synthetic carpets for the same purpose.
Plumbing / Wiring supplies.
Pallets, we could do with 200 or so, could be damaged.
Straw, We’ll need a good few hundred small bales come the end of summer.
Reclaimable timber, incl. ply/ sterling board
Any other spare building materials.

Shelter :: The Hobbit House

This is a house I built for our family in Wales. It was built by myself and my father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting we were moved in and cosy. I estimated 1000-1500 man hours and £3000 in materials. Not really so much in house buying terms (roughly £60/sq m excluding labour).
The house was built with maximum regard for the environment and by reciprocation gave us a unique opportunity to live close to nature. It housed our family whilst we worked in the woodland surrounding the house doing ecological woodland management and setting up a forest garden, things that would have been impossible had we had to pay a regular rent or mortgage. The main tools used were a chainsaw, hammer and 1 inch chisel, little else really. I was not a builder or carpenter, my experience was only having had a go at one similar house 2yrs before and a bit of mucking around inbetween. This kind of building is accessible to anyone. My main relevant skills were being able bodied, having self belief and perseverence and a mate or two to give a lift now and again.

Some key points of the design and construction:


Dug into hillside for low visual impact and shelter
Stone and mud from diggings used for retaining walls, foundations etc.
Frame of oak thinnings (spare wood) from surrounding woodland
Reciprocal roof rafters are structurally and aesthaetically fantastic and very easy to do
Straw bales in floor, walls and roof for super-insulation and easy building
Plastic sheet and mud/turf roof for low impact and ease
Lime plaster on walls is breathable and low energy to manufacture (compared to cement)
Reclaimed (scrap) wood for floors and fittings
Anything you could possibly want is in a rubbish pile somewhere (windows, burner, plumbing, wiring…)
Woodburner for heating – renewable and locally plentiful
Flue goes through big stone/plaster lump to retain and slowly release heat
Fridge is cooled by air coming underground through foundations
Skylight in roof lets in natural feeling light
Solar panels for lighting, music and computing
Water by gravity from nearby spring
Compost toilet
Roof water collects in pond for garden etc.

These are by along way the best drawings I ever did of the house, after it was made.
undefined


The Design:

The design of the house comes mostly from the combination of the following considerations:
Analysis of functions > elements > materials
Site survey (slope, features, aspect, access etc.)
Zoning, relationships of activities and requirements
Aesthetic, sculptural play
See how it goes, what works and feels good

NB. Ideally the design of our lives is seamless with integrated relations between all the spaces, activities and things with which we live. In this case however, mention is limited to that which comes inside the physical structure of the house to save unravelling the whole of the metaphorical woolly jumper.

The Hobbit House
After building and living in the hobbit house, we left it for the woodland workers passing through this beautiful place. In 2009 we finally bought our own place, a 7 acre piece of land as part of the Lammas eco village in West Wales.  The opportunity to really be somewhere, to integrate our basic needs of shelter, energy, food and a livelihood now has a permanent place to take root and grow.  Being creative with what is available; minimising energy and pollution; and careful observation is our basic approach. So far we have built a small house, the Undercroft; a workshop and barn.  Tree planting, pond creation, vegetable beds, fruit, composting and animals are the beginning of a self reliant, resilient and biodiverse home.

The Building Process

The site before starting Hole dug and level, post positions marked out, dry stone foundation walls down, first retaining wall built against front bank.
30 or so small trees and a bit of chainsawing later. Lift logs, prop up, nail together and continue until no longer wobbly. Split logs over the top and palettes on the floor. Tree in to prop up sleeping platform. Palettes on the floor to take insulating bales.
Straw delivery. Cotton sheets then straw bales on the roof and cover it up with plastic, other bales inside, quick before it rains. Build straw bale wall inside, a fun and quick job. The bales are stacked on rough dry stone wall and staked together with hazel sticks. Inside bales go on pallette floor ready for floorboards on top.
Pop windows in the holes, stuff straw into any gaps then chainsaw trim the bales smooth with cute roundy corners. Father-in-law and tool bench, 4.30am. All tools lost, snowing outside, no doors, plastering underway.
Spring, mud on the roof, plastering and whitewashing done, landscaping nearly finished, beer brewing, bread in the oven.

Berllan Dawel, our plot at Lammas
Only three generations ago most of us had ancestors living in the countryside and were skilled in woodwork, plants, craft, weaving and so on. Like many people, we wished to reclaim these ways and return to having a direct relationship to the land, do things for ourselves, enjoy a high standard of living and have fun.    Committing ourselves to this land and simple living is our way of taking responsibility for our impact on the world as best we can.  Every day we learn more about this place and can integrate our needs with the landscape we are in. Time to observe cycles and seasons is giving the opportunity to become neo-indigenous; architects of our own lives and genuine stewards of the land.

Land :: Forest Gardens

Forest Gardening is another name for mixed agroforestry, i.e. growing herbaceous, shrubs and trees together to form mutually beneficial relationships. This model provides for human needs within an ecosystem that supports wildlife and biodiversity, in other words it is resilient and high yielding..  Robert Hart brought the idea of forest gardens from the tropics years ago, where he saw abundant food, fibre and medicine growing in a semi wild forest.  He compared the efficiency and ecological value of this compared to deserts of monoculture crops needing constant work and fertility inputs and sought to emulate this in a temperate climate in England.  Nowadays the leading example of this is Martin Crawford’s 2 acre site at Dartington College in Devon and he has captured the imagination of a generation of permaculture gardeners with the promise of a low energy, highly designed food forest.
Key principles that inform forest gardening in the UK:
LayersPerennialsShade and spacingGuildsDiversityFertility self sufficientWindbreaks
For me a forest garden has almost a mythical quality, conjuring images of fruit laden woodlands and sacred groves.  It simultaneously satisfies my dreams of living in landscape of ancient trees, surrounded  by birds and animals whilst giving me a practical model to address my fears for the future of food security and increasingly erratic weather.
Below are some pictures of our young forest garden at Berllan Dawel.  Berllan is the welsh word for orchard which beautifully translates as sacred place of sweet luscious things; Dawel means peaceful or quiet.  In time we want the whole plot to feel like a forest garden, the veg beds and ponds becoming glades within it.  So when the wind howls through the infant windbreak, spindly cherry trees break in half and words are heated I’m trusting the name and intention for this place will happen, but three years is early days for a woodland ecosystem!

Land: Wild Soil

In nature there is no uncovered soil for long.  An occasional tree uprooted by wind, a freshly dug mole hill or a landslide is soon densely covered by vegetation.  This protects the soil from erosion drying out and dying.  Even the surfaces of rocks, deadwood and manmade materials are colonised by mosses and fungi in an ever flow of life towards more complex and diverse ecosystems, supporting more species.  As soil is the medium in which our life support systems grow, permaculture systems have a principle of keeping soil covered wherever possible.
This principle is called wild soil.  In practice this means preferring perennial and self seeding plants; protecting bare soil and clearing ground for cultivation through mulching.  Perennials live for more than one year, so this can include trees, bushes, herbs  and roots.  By their nature they have bigger, more established root systems and so can often withstand more extremes of weather, pests and disease. This provides resilience, extremely desirable in the face of erratic weather and legions of slugs.  Think of the robustness of a blackcurrant bush compared to a carrot seedling!
We love normal annual vegetables, however introducing a few perennials that don’t need to be planted year after year, means much less work involved too.  A good example are perennial brassicas and alliums, which can replace in flavour, if not in texture, cabbages and onions.  A shift in perspective can cultivate herbs eg mallow and trees eg lime as salad grown on bushes and trees.

Permaculture

Permaculture is a toolkit to integrate land use, dwellings and natural ecosystems in a way that is permanently sustainable.  By working with nature’s cycles, energies and resources, we can design our surroundings to meet our needs in a way that cares for the earth, people and allows individual conscience to determine what and how much we consume.  Bill Mollison and David Holmgren, earth scientists, devised permaculture in the 1970s as a response to oil crises and realisation that there are limits to economic growth in a world of finite natural capital.  They carefully observed natural systems that flourished and indigenous people that lived in harmony with their environment and came up with principles and practices to create such a world in our time.
Three fundamental ideas emerged:
ObservationPermaculture principles and ethicsDesign process
Nearly 50 years later, permaculture is a huge topic and practiced in diverse ways. Many of the ideas are ancient and common sense and overlap with non permaculture activity. The essence remains that instead of using huge amounts of fossil fuels or hard graft, permaculture offers a third way: creative design with its unlimited yield of our imaginations.  We can think of permaculture as a lens we can look through at a task or project, a tool to find solutions or a game we can play to make a plan.

Design Tools

In some ways thinking has got a bad reputation, as not grounded or practical. However when we’re designing ecologically and socially sound projects that resonate with what is relevant to us, tools simplify a load of complex factors and help us reach a good decision. Imagine a carpenter, when they want to do a job they choose a tool, i.e to make a cut they choose a saw. It would be pretty inefficient, frustrating and even hazardous to pick up a hammer and attack the task with no mental organisation as to what and why they were doing. It is likely that if we were completely in harmony and symbiotic with our environment such tools would be obselete, but in a fragmented world, often distant from the skills and knowing our ancestors embodied, pattern languages help realign us with what is true, good and beautiful with minimum harm to other beings.
So permaculture tools are frameworks and processes for thinking about a problem or plan; they organise our thoughts and allow our mind to bring foward the relevant information or activity. The brain loves patterns and uses them to reduce the huge complexity of life to simple operational stuff. Below is a summary of some tools to use when designing.  This can be applied to any scale from planning an event, to working out how to build and site a dwelling on a piece of land.
Below are some steps to get you started.


OBSERVATION

Observation is fundamental to good design. The tendency of humans to control and react to the world has created the unsustainable world we are grappling with. So to truly observe and not jump to conclusions can radically maximise our positive impact, allowing being before doing. The key to observation tools is not to think of solutions:

I WONDER?

This is good to do with children, who are professional wonderers. Walk around your site or contemplate your idea saying ‘I wonder …?’ For example, ‘I wonder why that fern grows there? I wonder why I feel nervous in this setting?’

LISTENING TO THE LANDSCAPE

This exercise was devised by Chris Day, and is described as 4 modes of listening. Take yourself to your site and go through the modes, making notes before or afterwards. Between 5 minutes and an hour for each one is a good start.
‘Intuitive’: first impressions; walk the boundaries of a site; gut feelings etc’Objective’: collect measurable data eg species, numbers, size of area, weather etc’Imaginative’: picture the landscape and its inhabitants 10,000 years ago and into the future’Subjective’: go to a place you are drawn to and do the first thing that comes into your head


SURVEY: PLACE AND PEOPLE: MAPS

A good survey will include the place and people involved and an accurate to scale map (this should be a map of existing features rather than proposed ideas!) For people, be sure to separate out different groups or individuals to get a true reading of the situation and to include yourself, whether as designer or participant. One way to simplify a survey is to break it down into the elements:

EARTH

Earth can include soil, materials available (natural, man made, money, landform, species).

AIR

Air can include wind patterns, ventilation, thoughts and ideas.

WATER

Water can include water sources such as rainfall, taps, roofs, rivers; water catchment such as ponds, butts etc; emotions and feelings.

SUN

Sun can include aspect (north, south facing etc), average temperatures, sun traps, frost pockets, shade, passions, creativity.

SPIRIT

Spirit could be your people survey, what skills they bring, limits they have, what they want to put in and get out of a design/project. It can also include spiritual beliefs, sacred spots and beautiful views.

 


KEY PLANNING TOOLS

This is not an inspiring name but these are great tools for looking at a site and starting to plan activities:

ZONE

This is looking at patterns of how frequently a place is used and its proximity from ourselves. This starts to minimise wasted effort by placing elements (things) in places to use the least energy. What your situation is determines what your zoning will be; a block of flats or a farm have all the zones but their detail will be quite different. Zone 1 is patios, front gardens, herb beds etc. Zone 2 perennial garden, shed. Zone 3 orchards, grazing. Zone 4 coppice. Zone 5 wilderness.

SECTOR

Map the wind, sun, water, frost and soil conditions on your site. You can use overlays of each of these sectors on a map to see where stuff is most appropriate eg. the shade sector will show where the veg garden shouldn’t go but where trees would be fine.

ASPECT

This is the slope or direction your site faces. In the northern hemisphere, a southern aspect gets a lot of sun. A northern aspect will get limited sun at some times of day and year, east gets morning sun and west late afternoon and evening.

SLOPE

Get as accurate idea as possible of the gradient and variations on your site. Its amazing how inaccurate the eye is once you start making foundations.

ELEVATION

This tool means how high above sea level you are. Eg we are 175-195m high. This gives valuable information about what grows where and weather conditions generally.


ANALYSIS

By now you will have a lot of information and your subconscious has had lots of time to organise it all and by now your ideas for a design will probably be bubbling up. There are lots of ways to analyse the collected treasure, here are a few good ones:

ELEMENTS AND FUNCTIONS

Start thinking of things as elements (things eg pond, greenhouse, kitchen) and functions (storing water, growing salads, cooking). Then a good practice is to make sure every element you want does at least two functions, this is for efficiency. For example, a stove cooks, heats water and space, dries clothes etc. A group of trees might give food, fiber, habitat, windbreak, privacy. Complimenting this is to ensure every function is fulfilled by at least two elements, for security. For example, water storage could be a pond, water butts, soil structure and contouring the land.

INPUT-OUTPUT

You can take this further at a systems level by writing down all the inputs and outputs of each element. and then match the outputs (yields) of one thing to the inputs (needs of another) to close the loop. Try to think as laterally as possible. An example might be a roof. Its needs might be structural, aesthetic, spatial etc and its yields might include obscuring a view, nesting for birds, rainwater catchment. Then when you’re mapping other functions and elements you can identify links. The roof becomes a valuable source of water for a polytunnel or bathroom. The needs of a neighbour to see something pleasant and the roof design might accommodate this by being turfed which would in turn provide other benefits and so on.
‘An unmet need = work or fossil fuels. An unused yield = pollution’ (B.Mollison)

SWOC

Pick an aspect of the situation (this can be of what already exists or of what you are proposing) and write down the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Constraints

PNI

Similar is to ask yourself what is Positive, Negative and Interesting.


DESIGN

SCALE/TEMPLATES

Use to scale maps and models wherever practical. Cut out templates of your main elements and play around with them to bring the design together on paper or make a model out of whats available, clay, lego, mashed potato!

PERMACULTURE  PRINCIPLES

Below is David Holmgren’s interpretation of the PC principles. Check through your ideas to see if they resonate, new ideas or modifications may appear. Don’t worry too much about what they mean, your own interpretation is good enough.

ETHICS

Check your design decisions to see if they include:
Earth care: ecosystems: soil, water, ecology, biodiversity, air
People care: patterns: social organisation, affect on others and self
Fair shares: limits to consumption: Ask our conscience what limits and compromises we can accept.


FEEDBACK

Reflecting on what worked and what didn’t and how we would act differently yields vital information for sustainable design. The more we observe and feedback and adjust our behaviour the more likely we are to truly be somewhere rather than just be using resources and doing stuff to the world.

EVALUATION AND TWEAK

There’s lots of ways to evaluate and then tweak your design. The analysis tools above of SWOC and PNI are good. Remember to evaluate not just the content of what you did/ are doing but also how well the tools and surveys you used to plan worked. The tweak is the adaptions you make. This is called action learning in permaculture design and is vital to turn mistakes into mis – takes; trial and error becomes try-alls and dismantles the perception that life is fixed rather than a process of experimentation.

PROBLEM IS THE SOLUTION

Turn problems on their heads to become the solution. For example, too windy then grow windbreak trees giving a firewood yield, put up a turbine, become a small business drying people’s washing without fossil fuels!

The Permaculture Magazine lists tons of great design courses for an in depth approach to design tools.

Planning Permission

This page is due an update. Wales wide OPD planning policy is now in force and the best hope for this type of development.
—————————————–
Whilst I’m primarily talking about the UK planning systems, I hope the following may also be of use to those in other countries.

Planning Background

The British Town and Country Planning Act was introduced in 1947 to control the development and use of land. Other countries have similar legislation. This means that when we want to use a piece of land to live on or provide self sufficiency and livelihood we should seek permission for both any building work and any change of use of the land (as well as mining, engineering and other operations).
Whilst this system protects our land from uncontrolled development it has also come to play a important role in our economy. Our economy now grows by giving loans and creating more money in the form of debt. Rising house prices coupled with increasingly tenuous mortgage lending provide a crucial contribution to the growth and therefore stability of our economy.
The value of houses is related not primarily to the cost of their construction but to the permission to use that land for residential use. A quarter acre of an agricultural field might here be worth £1000. As soon as permission is granted for change of use to a residential building plot it becomes worth £100,000. So that puts £99,000 extra onto our national balance sheet, which the new homeowner is expected to pay off. Paying off this mortgage may well take the owner their entire working life and severely restricts their scope to live a simple and sustainable life.
There are planning regulations that control permission for those in agricultural enterprises to build and live on their land. This is close to suiting the low impact dweller who wishes to live on their piece of land in a simple way and work with that piece of land. These regulations require proof that both the enterprise is viable and that there is a strict functional need to live on the site. In practice viability of the enterprise is interpreted on its bottom line profit, this does not account for either produce derived for self sufficiency or for the fact that a very modest income is sufficient to support a simple way of life. In addition the functional need test is wildly variable in its interpretation and does not allow for the fact that living elsewhere may be economically crippling. (The test is more often related to the need for 24 hour attention to lambing ewes, burning charcoal kilns, or even battery chicken farm air conditioning backup systems -true example!)

Retrospective Application

Contrary to popular belief, in Britain it is not illegal to carry out building works and changes of use without applying for planning permission before-hand. It is acceptable to instead make a retrospective application. Of course it is possible that this application could be refused. This is the approach favoured by Tesco supermarkets who rely on a mutually agreeable financial arrangement to ensure approval. It is also the approach that has most successfully been used by both low impact dwellers and many more conventional farmers although these people have generally had to rely on paperwork and logic to ensure eventual permission.
In addition our planning departments do not have a general remit to enforce against unpermitted development, only to process applications and follow up on complaints. This is an significant retention of liberty and common sense. If I get a piece of land and build a monstrous palace which I use as a base for having excessively loud parties. My neighbours will probably complain to the council who will demand a retrospective application which they’d refuse and then serve an enforcement order for me to demolish the building. On the other hand, if I build a modest and discreet house on a piece of land somewhere and all my neighbours have no problem with what I am doing, the need to make a planning application will not arise. In this case, after 10 years the building and change of use will be eligible for a certificate of lawful use, meaning a planning application is not needed. If there is not a change of use, lawful use is granted after 4 years.
Many low impact living projects have now be granted temporary or permanent permission through the retrospective applications usually followed by appeals. Such cases are arguable through agricultural technicalities as well as appeals to general ecological and social commitments.
Agenda 21 says: “Access to land resources is an essential component of sustainable low-impact lifestyles. Land resources are the basis for (human) living systems and provide soil, energy, water and the opportunity for all human activity.” and commits us to the objective of providing for “the land requirements of human settlement development through environmentally sound physical planning and land use so as to ensure access to land to all households and, where appropriate, the encouragement of communally and collectively owned and managed land.”
And in the words of the Landmatters Project’s’ appeal inspector: “Permaculture is now an internationally recognised means of sustainable agriculture and the subject of much academic study in recent years. Moreover, the direction of travel of emerging national policy towards ever more sustainable approaches to development and the need to address the problem of climate change is readily apparent…In such a context I find there to be considerable ecological, educational and cultural benefits in further exploring permaculture…from the development of and experimentation with sustainable technologies and agricultural practices which that way of life facilitates” and “in order to practice permaculture properly and successfully…a substantial and continuous residential presence is essential”
This increasingly well trodden route of development and retrospective application has been the generally advised route for low impact development and gave us our homes for 4 years with very little complication. We never came to having to argue an appeal and we were never forced to demolish our home. We were encouraged by the worst case scenario that house were enforced against immediately and subsequently demolished after the inevitable couple of years paperwork. Over this time period the cost and amount of work it takes to make a simple home is small compared to the cost of renting a conventional house, not to mention the quality of our experience over that period.

Low Impact Development Policies

Over the last two years, we have spent our time following a different approach. Since the introduction of a groundbreaking low impact development policy in Pembrokeshire (SW Wales) we have been involved with the Lammas Project trying to get prior permission for a 9 dwelling low impact settlement. Our hope is that in so doing we will set the precedent which then makes it an easy route without the uncertainty of the ‘retrospective’ approach.
The Low Impact Development Policy is a farsighted and one which could potentially unlock a groundbreaking positive change. Under it, someone working and living on their land in a sustainable way and deriving their livelihood from that land is allowed to do so on agricultural land. This effectively subsidises sustainable livelihoods which would otherwise be economically unviable in the current, unsustainable financial climate.
Pembrokeshire have not yet managed to conclude any of the applications made under the policy. Whilst ours has been a frustrating process, we are still hopeful for a good result soon. Friends of ours who made a retrospective application under the same policy are in a better situation. They applied for 2 years temporary permission and have been living on and working their land for the 18 months since they submitted their application!
Similar policies are currently in consultation phase for Wales nationally and England is also making moves in the same direction.

Conclusion

I would currently recommend development followed by a retrospective application as required, preferably in Pembrokeshire, as the best approach for individual or groups wishing start a new low impact living project. There are also a number of established projects about who are open to new members (see resources page). Chapter 7 are a campaign group and planning consultancy for low impact development. They are almost certainly the experts on low impact planning matters and have some excellent publications and online resources.
This was an interview which I was sent in 2007, after a year or so in the hobbit house. It was one of my first attempts to articulate the principles behind what we were doing following instinct and fun, rather than ideals. I certainly knew nothing about what organic architecture meant in the architectural tradition !
Since when do you live in an organic house?
5 years ago
Was it a conscientious decision to move to an organic house, which were your influences in the first place?
Yes, but to be natural (nontoxic/low energy/eco), close to nature and self built were our first priorities. Being built mostly from imagination, optimism and rubbish,the process is naturally organic. Being organic in terms of forms seems to come naturally given the above. Also my aesthetic is generally soft and curved, coming mostly from the natural world. Between making my first and second houses I read Christopher Day who explains well the benefits of organic forms in architecture for our minds and soul. This seemed to vindicate my instincts.
What are, for you, the big differences between living in an traditional straight lines house, or living in an organic one?
Suits my aesthetic. Feels gentle. Feels to me more like being part of the(natural) world,less like a commodity in a box. Rectangular rooms do feel box-like and slightly claustrophobic in comparison.
Do you think that living in an organic house affected your way of being, your personality, and if so, in which way?
I think we overuse the cause and effect model. More usually it is two (or an infinite number actually) things co-evolving or mutually related. This is certainly true here, there is a change, but lifestyle, values, and material situation change together rather than one leading another. In my case at least this is true.
If you moved a random person (from a town flat say) to an organic natural house in the middle of nature it would affect them. They would probably fight it or love it.
How do people react to the fact that you live in an organic house?
Nearly everyone is interested. In the whole lifestyle mostly although the house does seem to have some kind of innate appeal. I think it touches something common, a romantic idea of some fantasy past/alternative. Everyone says it is a hobbit house, they all love the lord of the rings at the moment.I think Tolkien draws the hobbits as the naïve or innocent representation of humans in a wholesome natural state. People instictively relate to this, especially in the context of modernity.
Is it a subject that raises discussion? … living in an organic house?
It’s handy for a bit of suprising small talk, although explaining our lives can be difficult. Suggesting positive alternatives to the standard route often raising some uncomfortable feelings. Mostly these feelings are of an implied criticism of the way others lead their lives, in terms of ecological responsibility and the following of ones own dreams. These are both hard things to approach for all of us with lots of barriers from our societal conditioning and our own accumulated pains. I find Joanna Macy is very good at showing us ways to take our frustration at these barriers and turn it into positive action for ourselves and the world. I would make no claim that what we are doing is any better than anything else. I’d only say that this is where we are currently up to and this is what is working for us. If any of it can provide an inspiration for others to follow the path of what feels right for them then hooray!
Do you have many friends living or wanting to live in an organic house?
Everyone wants to take personal control of their own lives. To live in an environment that is close to nature and kind on the soul is a common aspiration. Also self building is a real current trend, in Britain at least. Inevitably, most of the promotion and help in doing it comes from those with commercial stakes in the industry and promotes self building in ways which are convenient and profitable for them. This means that people are introduced to a set of options that are actually quite limited in terms of the ways to create a home, particularly in terms of high costs, formulaic construction and mass produced modular components. Hence the dominance of linear forms. Actually comfortable and natural homes can be created in ways that are simple, cheap and allow massive scope for creativity and building quite literally outside the box!
There are increasing numbers of people making their own homes similar to ours. They are making some beautiful, accessable and highly functional houses. The more people who do, the more inspiration and support there will be for the next ones, as we owe ours to those who came before us.
would it be realistic to think that one day the majority of people will live or want to live in an organic house? What do you believe would be the consequences?
It is right and natural that different people have different aesthetics and I’m sure there will always be those who prefer straight lines to organic curves. However the dominance of linear forms comes largely from the aesthetic of the modernist movement and the world of mass production. I think we are moving beyond this now, both in our philosophy and the practicalities of our world. The age of cheap energy may well becoming to an end, as we respond to both environmental imperatives and dwindling supplies of oil. I think and hope that this will lead to more small scale, low energy solutions to meeting our real needs. This should mean an increase in individually produced homes of natural and local materials. This in turn means more opportunities for creative, non-linear and organic designs.
Does living in an organic house have any inconvenient?
It does make it tricky to integrate cast off furniture. We don’t have any flat walls and not much level floor! Luckily we’re not that much into IKEA stuff anyway.
By the way, Hundertwasser was keen to avoid flat floors because he thought it was unnatural for us. I was pleased to follow his recommendations and simultaneously avoid the trouble of leveling the floor.
Do your furniture and objects enter in the organic design?
Ideally, in terms of aesthetics, they would all be integrated, from the surrounding environment,through the shell of the building and on to the furniture, fittings, objects and people that inhabit the space. Also I would love to know the hands that made every object in my life.
why do you think that there are two separate movements going on: the eco/biological architecture and the organic architecture?
Maybe it is again about the industry. I am glad that we are seeing a increase in ecological constuction even in mainstream building. Still though I see this as being very much tied up with the convenience of mass production and hence linear forms. As for organic architecture, we don’t see much of it around and I think that most people just think that Gaudi has a trademark on anything with a curve. It’s probably just not cost-effective on the scale of industrialised construction unless there is lots of cash and passion involved which is a rare mix.
wouldn’t it make sense to integrate them?
When building is done in the way that I am talking about, what I’d call low-impact building, it’s done on the ground by the person whose building it is, who is the architect and builder, who is working with respect for nature around and inside themselves. Then I think the process and result will be organic in every way and ecological. There would be no separation.
What is your relation with nature?
We are all a part of nature unquestionably, we are animals of the earth. What remains is how see ourselves in relation to the rest of that living system. We can honour and celebrate it for its own innate value. Alternatively we can value it as a resource for our use. This is the distinction Arne Naess and others make by talking about deep as opposed to shallow ecology. When we adopt a deep ecological or ecocentric view of the world, it then makes sense to live in away which is as close as possible to a true synergy with nature.
how do you explain the relation between organic architecture and a more natural way of living?
The attempt to find a synergy with nature is then the approach that we are using to design systems for living. These systems include buildings, food production, waste and water systems and much more. When we are working with rather than against nature, the rest of nature works with us and things become easy. This is Permaculture.
Do you have any advice for people who would like to go and live in an organic house?
Having your own home which is a part of you can be simple. Start from “what do I need?” and “what do I have?” not “what can I buy?” or “what do other people do?”. Do a permaculture course or read a book. Be inventive, try things out, do things the easy way. Look in skips. BE BOLD.

The Great British Garden Revival

p01myh17

A wonderfully inspiring TV campain to
revive Britain’s gardens
Watch the 1-hour episodes by clicking on the individual headings
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03lv3fb/episodes/guide

Image for Ponds and StumperiesCharlie Dimmock campaigns to put ponds back in gardens. She finds out the importance of ponds for wildlife and takes the plunge in a new style of water gardening – the swimming pond. Charlie also finds out how a community in East Yorkshire has come together to breathe new life into their village pond. The lakes, small ponds and water features of Nottingham Trent University are the starting point for her revival, and Charlie gives her step-by-step guide to building a wildlife pond and bog garden, from the initial design stage, right through to planting up.

  • Chris Beardshaw wants to return a Victorian curiosity, the stumpery, to our gardens. Similar to rock gardens but created from upturned tree stumps, logs and roots, stumperies were created to display the spoils of intrepid Victorian plant hunters. On his revival Chris discovers how fern fever swept the nation in the 19th century. He meets a man in North Wales who is as fascinated by ferns as he is and sets off on a woodland trail to see the stumpery as nature intended. Chris bases his campaign at the most famous stumpery in the country, created by HRH the Prince of Wales, in the grounds of Highgrove House. Throughout the show, he creates his own mini-stumpery using his favourite ferns to full effect and shows how to grow mushrooms on a log.
  • Image for Glasshouses and ShrubsDiarmuid Gavin wants to use glasshouses to restore a sense of adventure, flair and excitement to gardens. On his campaign, he visits Wentworth Castle in Barnsley to help out with the final stages of the restoration of its elaborate Victorian glasshouse. He gives his guide to greenhouse buying and meets up with passionate allotmenteers in Nottingham, who have gone one better and designed and built their own remarkable greenhouses using recycled materials. Diarmuid gives his top greenhouse growing tips, gets to grips with hothouse flowers, and explores the wealth of temperate and tropical flora on display at the National Botanic Gardens in Wales.
  • Matt James thinks that shrubs have been overlooked and ignored for too long. He wants gardeners to rediscover and appreciate the importance of this amazing group of plants. On his journey he visits a garden in Norfolk where shrubs are the stars of the show, and inspires a group of young gardeners at Flatford Mill in Suffolk to plant shrubs in their gardens to encourage wildlife. Matt gives his beginner’s guide to shrubs with the focus on colour, flower power and fragrance. Plus he shares his top pruning tips to help keep shrubs looking at their best year after year.
  • Image for Fruit Trees and Ornamental BeddingIn this episode, plantswoman Carol Klein shares her infectious passion for a style of gardening that she thinks is in much need of a revival – the rock garden. She tracks its history from its pinnacle during the Victorian era, visits a community in Bolton who have pulled back their local rockery from neglect, and drops in on an old friend in the Midlands to find out more about this much-maligned gardening style. From her base at Edinburgh Botanic Gardens, Carol demonstrates tried and tested techniques for growing success, as she shows us how to plant up a trough with some of her treasured rock garden favourites and gives advice on the best alpine bulbs for containers.Also in this show, Toby Buckland is on the campaign trail for herb gardens. He discovers how useful herbs have been throughout history, learns that there was no such thing as a weed in Tudor times, meets a woman whose garden is overflowing with herbs we have forgotten, and talks to a botanist who grows plants to capitalise on their unique fragrances and essential oils. Toby also demonstrates how to harvest seeds and grow herbs, whether you have a garden or not, and how to make the most of herbs by storing them in clever and unusual ways.
    .
  • Image for Cut Flowers and TreesIn this show, Rachel de Thame investigates the decline of Britain’s cut flower industry. At New Covent Garden, she discovers that 90% of cut flowers sold in the UK are imported. She meets a man who has dedicated his life to growing sweet peas, and joins a florist who uses some surprising flowers in the wedding bouquets she creates. From her base at the cutting garden of Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire, Rachel gives us her tips on how to grow, cut and arrange flowers.Also in the show, Joe Swift wants us all to plant trees in our gardens. He visits the magnificent elm trees of Brighton, which didn’t fall victim to the devastating Dutch elm disease as it ravaged Britain in the 1970s, and he marvels at the national collection of birch trees in Devon, the lifelong work of one man. Based at Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Joe shows us some of his favourite trees for small gardens and also gives us his top tips on how to plant and prune trees.
    .
  • Image for Cottage Gardens and House PlantsAs a passionate plantswoman, Carol Klein wants everyone to embrace one of the most iconic and quintessentially British styles of gardening – the cottage garden. She shares her years of experience with her ultimate guide to the best cottage garden plants, along with money-saving tips on how to grow favourite plants from scratch. In the Lake District, she visits the home of Beatrix Potter and a cottage garden which features in some of the most famous children’s books ever written. She also encourages the people of Nantwich to get gardening in the Great British Seed Swap.As a plant hunter, Tom Hart Dyke wants Britain to fall back in love with the house plant. He has a chilling encounter with an orchid he last saw when he was kidnapped in Columbia 13 years ago, discovers that house plants can have a positive impact on people’s well-being and productivity at work and shares tips on how to care for house plants and grow them from cuttings.
    .
  • Topiary and Roof Gardens

    Image for Topiary and Roof GardensRachel De Thame sharpens her shears to champion topiary, the great tradition of trimming and shaping plants. In her revival she charts the rise and fall of topiary from Elizabethan times to the present day, meets a topiary obsessed woman in Kent who has transformed her entire garden using amazing topiary creations and witnesses the hedge handiwork of a man in north London who is causing a buzz in the local neighbourhood with his living sculptures. Rachel shows that with a little know-how and confidence everyone can share in the sense of fun that topiary can bring to Britain’s gardens.

    James Wong is up on the roof for his revival. He uncovers the hidden horticultural past of the capital’s rooftops, visits a woman who has moved her entire garden to her rooftop apartment and heads to Birmingham’s new city centre library with an innovative rooftop addition. James shares his tips and shows us that when it comes to roof gardens, containers are king and reveals the best plants that are ideally suited to a rooftop garden.

  • Wild Flowers and Front Gardens

Image for Wild Flowers and Front GardensMonty Don is on the campaign trail for wild flowers. 98% of wild flower meadows have been lost since the first part of the twentieth century, a shocking statistic which he believes all gardeners can do something about. On his revival he tries his hand at making hay the old fashioned way in a coronation meadow, visits the largest biodiversity hotspot in the world – Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank and shows how to grow wild flowers, even without a garden.

  • Meanwhile, Joe Swift is determined to return the nation’s front gardens to their former glory. He bases his campaign at the award-winning Rockcliffe Avenue in Whitley Bay and shares his tips on how to transform front gardens in a few simple steps. He also discovers that greener streets reduce pollution and hits the road to get the message across in his Great British Plant Giveaway

Image for Lawns and TropicalSarah Raven explores the relationship between the British and their lawns. She visits Worcester College, Oxford, to catch a glimpse of lawn perfection and the winner of Britain’s best lawn competition. She also discovers a radical new approach to growing lawns, with the world’s first ‘floral lawn’ – composed solely of flowering and foliage plants and not a blade of grass in sight. With the help of a family, she road-tests three different types of lawn – a wildflower meadow, traditional grass and fake grass – with surprising results. Basing her revival campaign at Polesden Lacey in Surrey, Sarah shows how to keep lawns in tip-top condition; how to inject a splash of seasonal colour into grass by naturalising bulbs; and also how to deal with those irritating bald patches in the lawn, which are the blight of every gardener.

  • James Wong is determined for everyone to share in the sheer spectacle, thrill of innovation and sense of fun which tropical gardens can provide. Seen as unfashionable, expensive and too much hard work, tropical gardening has fallen by the wayside and James wants that to change. On his revival he meets like-minded tropical plant geeks, including one man who appears to have defied the laws of nature by creating a tropical paradise in his back garden in Norfolk. James gives his tips on how to care for and maintain tropical plants; explains which ones are best for sun and shade; and also reveals how to create a tropical look on a budget.

Image for Herbaceous Borders and Kitchen GardensChris Beardshaw wants everyone to plant herbaceous borders in their gardens. On his revival he visits a garden which is a true labour of love, originally designed by one of our most celebrated garden designers, Gertrude Jekyll. He meets a mother and daughter who are championing the must-have plant for any herbaceous border – the aster. Plus Chris tries to teach two non-gardening students the key design elements of this truly iconic British garden feature. Throughout the show he gives his ultimate design tips, shows how to get the best from borders and offers advice on how to deal with the gardeners’ enemy, the weed.

  • Alys Fowler celebrates the glories of the kitchen garden. More than an allotment or a neglected veg patch at the bottom of the garden, she thinks the kitchen garden should be a place of great ornamental beauty that provides food all year round. As well as sharing her top tips and growing advice, she reveals the secrets of one of Britain’s oldest kitchen gardens, gets a taste for unusual edible plants that take your breath away, and finds out about the communities up and down the country who are turning unused spaces into super productive kitchen gardens.

Image for Rock Gardens and Herb GardensToby Buckland wants to put homegrown fruit back into Britain’s gardens. On his revival he meets a fruit tree conservationist who rescues species that are close to extinction, as well as a family in Kent whose passion for fruit has resulted in the creation of the largest collection of different fruit trees in the country. Toby gives his tips and advice on how easy it can be to plant and care for fruit trees. He shows how to cordon a pear tree, prune espaliered apple trees and the best ways to store the results of the autumn harvest.

  • Christine Walkden gets behind the Victorian craze for ornamental bedding. On her campaign she meets the passionate people working hard to keep this gardening heritage alive. She discovers the innovations in plant breeding which are breathing new life into bedding and in Bournemouth she finds out how the council are encouraging the local people and visitors alike to develop a taste for ornamental bedding, with their edible displays. Throughout the show Christine shares her tips and advice – she shows how to create a portable carpet bed and how to grow one of the most popular bedding plants, the geranium, from cuttings.

All we need now is a ‘Great British Plant Giveaway’ and get planting…!

3. Bless and Pray

At first, we strenuously observed crystals of tap water, river water, and lake water. From the tap water we could not get any beautiful crystals. We could not get any beautiful ones from rivers and lakes near big cities, either. However, from the water from rivers and lakes where water is kept pristine from development, we could observe beautiful crystals with each one having its own uniqueness.

masaru emoto extraterrestre
The observation was done in various ways:

  1. Observe the crystal of frozen water after showing
    letters to water
  2. Showing pictures to water
  3. Playing music to water
  4. Praying to water

In all of these experiments, distilled water for hospital usage produced by the same company was used. Since it is distilled twice, it can be said that it is pure water.

The result was that we always observed beautiful crystals after giving good words, playing good music, and showing, playing, or offering pure prayer to water.

4.  SOLARISED WATER

imagesThe colours in food improve our health and quality of life but we can also ingest colour energy by solarising water. Solarised water absorbs filtered light and we can sip this according to our colour needs. To energise water you must use only pure natural spring water, as tap water has many chemical additives. You can either use a coloured glass bottle in which to hold the water, or you can wrap an acetate or plastic coloured filter around a glass or bottle. Place this in the sunlight for 30-60 minutes. The water must be consumed the same day for maximum effect. You can keep solarised water in the fridge for a day or two, but it works best when freshly made. You don’t need full sunshine for the water to absorb the sun’s rays, but natural light is an absolute must. The magnetic colours (red, orange, yellow, magenta) can be taken by the glassful, but the electrical colours (green, blue, indigo, violet) should only be sipped and not more than half a glassful at a time. Magnetic colours are best taken early in the day and not in the late afternoon or evening as they have a stimulating action.

You can use the complementary colours if there is any over-reaction to the effects of the original colour:
Red is complementary to Blue
Orange is complementary to Indigo
Yellow is complementary to Violet
Green is complementary to Magenta

BLUE
Blue solarised water is a great healer. The blue soothes and cools, it lowers fevers and is wonderful if dabbed on cuts, stings, bites or burns. You can also soak two cotton wool pads in the blue solarised water and put them over your eyelids for a soothing refreshing effect for tired or sore eyes. Gargling with blue water has a dramatic effect on a sore throat, which will heal very quickly. Blue water is good for any problems of the nose, throat, ears or eyes. It can also be rubbed on the skin especially if you have a rash or inflamed skin. Blue is good for cooling any condition which is hot, such as a high temperature. You can find many blue bottles in the shops these days and it is a good idea to have one of these filled with water readily available as part of your household medicine chest.
RED
Use if lethargic or lacking in energy. One glassful is helpful for anaemia.
It will raise low blood pressure. Use for sciatica. DO NOT USE on those
who are hyperactive, suffer from heart trouble, high blood pressure,
varicose veins or have tempers or are violent.
ORANGE
Use to free phlegm from the system, for asthma, wet coughs, fever,
digestive problems, difficult menstruation, kidney problems, colitis.
YELLOW
Will increase the flow of vital fluids, stimulates the spleen, pancreas, liver and kidneys. Cleans sluggish conditions and constipation. Stimulates the mind, clear thinking and memory loss.
GREEN
A good nerve sedative and tonic. Relieves head colds, hay fever,
neuralgia and shock.
BLUE
Half a wine glassful daily for colitis or biliousness (sip before a meal). Also good for kidney problems and diarrhoea. For hot flushes, take 3 times a day before meals. Use as a gargle for a sore throat. Blue solarised water has antiseptic qualities and is therefore good to use on minor cuts and bruises.
INDIGO
Use to bathe sore, tired or inflamed eyes. Good for migraine. Drink it to cool the system in hot weather and after sunstroke. Use for a sore throat if blue is not strong enough.
MAGENTA
Beneficial for the skin and also for lack of energy.

5. Standard reverse osmosis system

Tap-water is highly polluted with chemicals, hormones and additives.

images

There are two types of fluoride: calcium fluoride and sodium fluoride. Calcium fluoride is naturally found in water sources, while sodium fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries. Guess which  type is found in our water? Right, the nasty one. Get yourself an inexpensive filter and use it for your drinking water. Regular water filters such as Brita do a good job in reducing the taste of metals and chemicals in the water but they do not filter out the fluoride. Purifying the water through reverse osmosis is the most effective way to remove sodium fluoride from water.

Standard reverse osmosis system

Some processed foods also contain high concentrations of sodium fluoride, including instant tea, grape juice products, and soy milk for babies, so once again, avoid processed foods. Also, switch to a fluoride-free toothpaste.

Consuming foods rich in calcium and magnesium help prevent fluoride intoxication, as they prevent the poison from attaching to the body.

“Magnesium is a very important mineral that many are lacking. Besides being so important in the metabolism and synthesis of nutrients within your cells, it also inhibits the absorption of fluoride into your cells! Along with magnesium, calcium seems to help attract the fluorides away from your bones and teeth, allowing your body to eliminate those toxins. So during any detox efforts with fluoride, it is essential that you include a healthy supplemental dose of absorbable calcium/magnesium as part of the protocol.”
– Paul Fassa, How to Detox Fluoride from Your Body

The Global Elite – What can YOU do?

Below is an article by Inelia Benz of http://www.ascension101.com

The Global Elite, also known as the Illuminati, or nowadays as the Bilderbergs, are simply a group of people who realized what the true nature of our Universe was, eliminated every one else who knew this information, and used the information to harness the power (chi, ability to do) of the uninformed masses.

Their methodology is very mechanical in nature. They use sacred geometry, power points on the Earth, as well as mind control via the media and chemicals. Plus a continuing elimination of those individuals as well as native people and cultures who hold the sacred knowledge of creation.

Their bread and butter is FEAR.

Their knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation both by families as well as infiltrated groups, such as the Freemasons.They, in turn, are controlled by Darkness. Darkness came into this universe several thousand years ago from another universe which is Dark configured.

The difference between a Dark universe and a Light universe (which this one is), is basically that the main “emotional/creative” energy in a Dark universe is FEAR and the basic “emotional/creative” energy in a Light universe is LOVE.

There is plenty of documented and experiential evidence to support the above paragraph. To begin with, most cultures in the world will have an “origin” story where the Earth was a paradise devoid of suffering, fear and death, and then “fell” due to something that humans did. With regard to experiential evidence, ask anyone who has experienced Enlightenment or Oneness and he or she will tell you that it felt like BLISS, LOVE, ECSTASY. These higher states of consciousness are a merging with the Essence of this Universe… and guess what… no FEAR or SUFFERING in sight!

The Elite are presently working very hard at cultivating FEAR among the masses. They do this by staging, or broadcasting, natural or man made disasters, wars and pestilence around the world at regular intervals. FEAR keeps people ASLEEP. Someone who is ASLEEP has no FREE WILL. They are enslaved. FREE WILL is one of the fundamental laws of this universe. The Elite have broken that law by taking away the FREE WILL of billions of living beings in this planet.

They also use music and media to harness the focus of the young toward sex, drugs, violence and rock and roll.

They are also creating a FEAR OF LACK by making us believe that “oil and water are running out” and by polluting key areas of the world and broadcasting a belief that the entire world is polluted and overpopulated, when in fact, most of the world is clean, unpolluted, unpopulated and untouched by man. The CO2 pollution control is a SCAM to control the fuel sources of the world.

So, now that you know a few of the things these people are doing, what can you do?

  1. Firstly, you can create a FEAR FREE ZONE around you. This means a conscious effort to process fear as soon as it pops into your body/mind/aura.
  2. Also calling for your guides/angels to create a sanctuary of LOVE vibration in your home and workplace.
  3. Focus on a topic that is close to your heart, could be anything that creates Fear or Despair in the world and send it unconditional love, or beautiful liquid light. If the situation creates a strong negative emotion in you, then process it within yourself first, then do the outer work.
  4. When you see pictures of the Global Elite, you can google Bilderberg members in the news or media, or the internet, focus on them and tell them, “your time is up, all your darkness leaves this universe now”, with love and compassion.
  5. RETAKE power points in your area. Visit groves, parks, rocks, cathedrals, and known energy points in your area, and simply call upon the Divine Mother to retake that point. Call upon angles and fifth dimensional light beings to guard it and keep it free, clean and secure. Your intent is all that is needed to do this. It does not matter whether you believe in the Divine Mother with that particular name, or in Angels or other dimensional beings. What matters is your intent to retake the point of energy back for the Earth and Humanity.
