Background

Bird serpent

So this is an allegory of how you can use sexual energy generated at the level of your subconscious self – your lower chakras as it were, to enable you to be reunited with your Higher self – your Demeter.

It is clear that Demeter desperately wants to be reunited with her ‘child’, but that the process requires her to wait and the waiting time appears to be nine to ten months [allegorically nine days].

You now need to look at the section on false pregnancies

If you have used the techniques of sexual stimulation, then one of the side effects can be a false pregnancy and this will pan out over about 9 - 10 months.  During this time the energy will seek to readjust the body ready for ‘virgin birth’ – the emergence of the energy from the lower centres up to the crown chakra and the birth of a new you.

Step Two – the Confinement

In women, for signs of pregnancy to develop, there has to be an effect on the corpus luteum.  The corpus luteum is the remains of an ovulated ovarian follicle.  If an animal [including us] does not become pregnant, it is generally degraded, but it appears that if one uses sexual stimulation without ejaculation thus with no sperm , the corpus luteum persists but in the absence of pregnancy may cause pseudo pregnancy.  The Corpus luteum secretes a small  amount of estrogen and oestrogen can affect the nipples, produce varicose veins, increase vaginal secretions and affect ligaments and joints.

In women, the corpus luteum also produces progesterone during the false pregnancy .  In a man progesterone is produced by the testes thus ‘excessive’ stimulation of the testes will produce progesterone.  Progesterone can cause

  • relaxed stomach muscles  - hence the bulge
  • constipation
  • acid reflux
  • body temperature increases
  • mood changes
  • breathing changes
  • weight gain – fat around the stomach area
 

The false pregnancy takes about as long as a real pregnancy to fulfil its course from 9 to 10 months.

To perhaps make this clearer, you can have sex if you are the man or the woman, but there should be no sperm.

During this time you must be very careful about the food you eat – plain, reduced salt intake, lots of fish, raw vegetables, fresh fruit.  NO ALCOHOL and a minimum of stimulants such as coffee or tea.  A balanced diet of some meat, a little carbohydrate and plenty of vitamins from vegetables and fruit.  Milk and cheese are fine.

You should take no drugs [unless you have to because you are on needed medication]

A description of the experience

Homeric Hymn to Demeter

Bitter pain seized her heart, and she rent the covering upon her divine hair with her dear hands: her dark cloak she cast down from both her shoulders and sped, like a wild-bird, over the firm land and yielding sea, seeking her child. But no one would tell her the truth, neither god nor mortal men; and of the birds of omen none came with true news for her.

Then for nine days queenly Deo wandered over the earth with flaming torches in her hands, so grieved that she never tasted ambrosia and the sweet draught of nectar, nor sprinkled her body with water.

But when the tenth enlightening dawn had come, Hecate, with a torch in her hands, met her, and spoke to her and told her news.
