This is one of my favorite quotes from the Art of War, an ancient Chinese military treatise written by the Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu. The dark forces (archons, dracos, reptilians, etc) who are chronically waging war on humans from behind the scenes, are experts and masters at precisely this: deception. The draco-reptilians are master shape shifters. Humans really need to understand, respect and properly utilize this shape shifting nature of warfare, in order to win.
My mother actually taught me these same principles as stated by Sun Tzu, since I was a small child. I don’t think she got it from this book. I think she simply got it as a normal way of living by growing up in a military intelligence family. When I was a child, I didn’t want to accept these ideas, because I didn’t want to be in a war. And I used to think this is a paranoid way of thinking, and surely this is an inferior way to live. Honesty and openness is always best, right?
Wrong. In war time, in the middle of a crisis, rules are very different than in peace time. With loved ones, family, friends, and allies honesty and openness is usually best (Although silence is sometimes better). Honesty and openness is the wrong approach when dealing with psychopathic serial killers, however. Naiveté will get you nowhere and would likely get you killed very quickly in the real world. The Spiritual War has been ongoing since ancient times, and the human consciousness is the stage on which this war theater plays out. Each person, if honest, finds themselves in the middle of this war, which is also mental and physical, and each person’s character is shaped by the role they play in it. This ancient cosmic war will continue for a long time beyond our lives. Nevertheless, we all contribute to its outcome. I wish there was no war, but the reality is that it exists. It simply is and I simply accept this reality as it is, and do my best to be of greatest service possible to as many humans as possible even within these far from ideal circumstances. In this way, I’m at peace with the nature of this reality. Even though there is a war, I’m not at war with that fact. I am merely a servant to the Creator and Light. While those who deny that this war exists, in my view, become at war with this nature, and their own nature as a result. The irony of this is fascinating to me.
So what are ‘mere mortals’ supposed to do, to solve these problems? How can we win, when these dark forces are ancient and cosmic?
Actually there is a lot we can do. It starts with being sober and honest about the reality we live in. You have to see the truth of the light and dark natures of yourself, other beings around you, and the nature of our reality. You must recognize all the players and what side they are on, and what masks they wear. If you confuse enemies for friends or vice versa, it’s game over for you.
This relates to another quote by Sun Tzu:
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
Secondly, always work with the forces of Light. Join forces with high frequency beings, such as the Archangels, Angels, Ascended Master Teachers, Spirit Guides, and other helpful compassionate beings. Archangel Michael is always a few feet away from me. My work involves him a lot, and I teach others how to work with him, as well as other Archangels. (These are not religions beings. Although these are originally Hebrew names, these beings are universal consciousness beings of Light, and assist anyone whose mission is in service to God and humanity.) Attempting to win in this war, or accomplish anything important really, solely by your own human power, is either arrogant, ignorant or both. Doing things alone vs obtaining your energy and intelligence from a Higher Power is like the difference between walking and flying.
In one of her latest interviews Kerry Cassidy said, ‘Don’t be a Light Worker. Be a Light Warrior.’ I agree. I’m glad she said it in that no nonsense way. Light Workers in general, though not always, are too light weight, and don’t stand a chance when faced with the very dark forces that are at war with humans on this planet. They don’t seem to get what winning entails, or that they have to fight to win at all. And they don’t have the warrior spirit necessary to even attempt to defend themselves, much less win this epic war. The hippie, flaky, (medical) substance addicted lifestyles of the general light worker communities, is nearly the opposite of the discipline, clarity and organization necessary to create effective change in the world. I believe these communities have long been co-opted and no longer have the ability to support spiritual growth for the participants. The Love and Light cult seems to have decapitated many a light worker. It is far easier to check out and fantasize of love and light realities, then to actually keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, and work hard to solve factual real world problems in this reality. But checking out or drugging out is not the Spirit Warrior Way.
So although it may be true that there is a better way to live then the way outlined in the Art of War… in another dimension, where there is no war, where there is peace and love and flower power all around; here and now in this physical reality, these principles and practices are essential in understanding how to solve the problems we are faced with. Because many of these problems are consciously and aggressively manufactured in human society by the dark forces. With the primary weapon of choice being: deception. Which includes manipulation, dissemination of disinformation, cointelpro, suppression and cover up of truth, endless distractions, manufacturing false wars to distract from the real war, and many other methods.
The answer is always inside the question. And that should tell you that the way to overcome the challenge of deception is with clarity and truth. Total crystal clear clarity of mind, soul, spirit and body. This clarity is what allows one to be a cleansed vessel for the Great Spirit to come and live and work through you. A Spirit Warrior surrenders entirely in service to the Great Spirit’s calling, and in this way becomes the Great Spirit. Yes, a Spirit Warrior is also a mystic.
A personal spiritual practice in which you are connected to your own Higher Power, is essential on the path of empowerment. You must cultivate your personal power in order to manifest reality effectively.
Inner work must also be a daily practice, and will lead to the clarity of your soul and spirit.
As a Shamanic practitioner, there are several core practices of my inner work, and the healing services I offer to clients and students. The most important one being Soul Retrieval - the integration of the soul parts lost due to trauma in the past. Another is Shadow Integration - the integration of the great repressed creative potential hidden in the unconscious parts of one’s psychi.
Spiritual Clearing and Cleansing will lead to the clarity of your energy bodies and chakras.
Psychic Development will lead to the clarity of your intuitive mind.
Reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving will lead to the clarity of your logical mind.
Detoxing, a healthy diet, and strenuous fitness training will lead to the clarity of your body.
Meditation, breath work, prayer, occasional fasting, Yoga, martial arts - are all important practices on the path to total clarity.

In January of 2019, I will teach a Spiritual Protection and Psychic Self Development Workshop, in which I will discuss the philosophy, principles and practices of the Spirit Warrior lifestyle.
