Ethnobotany and pharmakeia, a warning to Christians..

Ecclesiastes 3:1 "There is a time and a purpose for everything under the heavens."

Note: I want to warn against descrimination. Just because I warn about shamanic practices, doesn't mean you should go out into the world and descriminate. America has freedom of religion. You can not treat someone differently for having something to do with "shamanic" things. I am not here to encourage hate, or descrimination.

Ethnobotany and pharmakeia are directly related phenomena. In fact, I believe there's a satanic agenda to seduce unsuspecting victims by means of rewording things to sound innocent. I have some astounding evidence, but can only post some of it, being in the form of academic sources, and other relivant facts. Some examples include the use of the word "entheogens" in place of "pharmakeia", or calling divination prophecy, etc etc. BTW, divination is the occult art of predicting the future. Moving on.. Instead of calling it necromancy, they call it "communing with the ancestors". These shaman shops are promoting pharmakeia and other forms of witchcraft when they use these words. I'm all about plants, and even and advocate for legal marijuana, kratom and others, but I judge each plant according to its fruits, and not based on what the majority of the church is saying. In the study of ethnobotany, I have learned a great many things. One such thing that I must warn against is how a lot of crazy cultures used poisonous, even deadly plants, to practice "divination", and necromancy, and other dangerous and deceptive dark arts warned against in Deuteronomy 18.. These online shops, that are selling "shamanic ethnobotanicals", are promoting sorcery. SHAMANISM IS WITCHCRAFT. Shamans practice everything forbidden in Deuteronomy 18. If you're interesting in divination, that allow me to introduce you to PROPHECY. It's much safer, you don't have to communicate with demons or take poisonous drugs to invoke it either. Bible says, "desire that ye may prophecy!".

A lot of online "ethnobotanical" shops, are pushing "shamanic doctrine". Don't get me wrong, I am AGAINST prohibition of plants BUT, I also want to reduce harm, give people fair warnings, and biblify the ethnobotany community. Christians deserve a fair warning about some of this stuff, however I am going about it much differently than 99% of them. I am non bias, don't just condemn plants because they're "psychoactive", as this word doesn't necessarily even mean what people think. Psychoactive simply means it has some effect on the mind, even if not noticeable ( like St John Wort and how it doesn't produce a "high" ). I don't condemn plants, I condemn shamanism, and pagan cults, without hate, and warn against potentially dangerous ones(and deadly ones being mismarketed online). On the surface, shamans are stereotyped as innocent Indian-like cultures, that are wise, and to be learned from.. but in reality, their way of life can cause you a nightmare of a curse. Deuteronomy 18: There shall not be found among you, anyone who practices: divination, a soothsayer, a necromaner, a witch(a shaman), one who interprets omens, cast spells, etc. It goes on to say ( about prophets ) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.

Some warnings about "ethnobotanicals": Judge them individually, and note the following poisonous plants: {The following 'ethnobotanicals' can kill: Bella Donna, Datura, Henbane, Mandrake, Poison Hemlock; Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, Morning Glory;}

Genesis 3:3-7 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Is it talking about their third eyes? (pineal gand) Back in the day, Bouncing Bear Botanicals had a link on their website to a page titled "The Tree of the knowledge" This was on their website in 2005, here's the link So we can see clues that certain "ethnobotanicals" may be the fruit.. I am sorta back and forth with this. I can see how certain ones would be this 'forbidden fruit', but others I am unsure about. Unlike a lot of Christians, I am not willing to go along with everyone else, rather seek my own answers from God. I can tell you definitively, that most of the plants utilized by shamans, had some type of toxcicity to them, and were psychoactive. There are other psychoactive plants that have no history with shamanism however. Another clue.. The owner of the new bouncing bear botanicals has 666 at the end of their email. It's Jons uncle or something like that, from back in the day. Just stating facts folks, not descriminating or hating. I am here to warn that shamanism is sorcery, and it will bring the wrath of God upon you, the real God.

Ezekiel 3:8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads. As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

All of this also ties into secret societies, like the freemasons. The freemasons, Timothy leary, and modern pharma's along with ancient occult practices(plant alchemy), are all connected. In his book "Turn on, tune in, and drop out", Timothy leary mentions in the foreword of his book, a false pagan God that the Egyptians and modern Freemasons and other satanic cults worship and serve. That false god is hermes trigsmagistus. What does this have to do with "entheogens" and pharmakeia? Well the medical symbol on the side of the ambulance, is of heremes trigsmagistus, and LSD was first shipped around the globe to psychiatric institutions by drug companies, for "research", when it was still legal. In the foreword of the book, leary mentions that "Hermes was the messenger of the gods and the brother of the goddess of wisdom, Athena. He was also something of a trickster. And, in his incarnation as Hermes Trigsmagistus, he served the role of being an initaitor into the mystical depths of the ancient wisdom shools". LSD was first discovered in a laboratory by phytochemist Albert Hoffman. So there's a direct connection between LSD, false gods and the occult, and modern secret societies like the freemasons(and their false god hermes trigsmagistus and asclepious, whose graven images(exodus 20:4) are on medical symbolism, and on the side of the ambulance.. The modern pharmaceutical industry is nothing more than a modern version of ancient occult alchemy, as passed down from the egyptians to the modern freemasons and other pagan/satanic cults.

Here is the media herding everyone towards the serpent.

LSD is an "entheogen"(pharmakeia, sorcery; divination;). (Divination often makes use of drugs[1]) LSD can catalyze intense spiritual experiences and is thus considered an entheogen. Some users have reported out of body experiences. In 1966, Timothy Leary established the League for Spiritual Discovery with LSD as its sacrament. Timothy leary was a minister for LSD. LSD is made in the likeness of that which is in the earth beneath(ergot, LSA, ergotamine, HBWR seeds, morning glory seeds, etc). [Exodus 20:4-xx] LSD was an idol, and leary went around preaching to people that if they took LSD, they could be like GOD, that it would "open their eyes". Doesn't this sound a lot like the serpent from the book of Genesis? "Ye shall not surely die... For God doth know.. that in the day ye eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing of good and evil". Krystle cole said in one of her videos ( that I had embedded on my Angelfire blog, and then she made the video private[I assume she saw my page]), that "during a peak of an LSD experience, one is open to a heightened sense of suggestibility"[2]. She goes on to say that you can "experience god", and "not the Christian God". A lot of people are unaware, but LSD was used as an "entheogen"(pharmakeia), to tap into psychic abilities, and to practice divination(fortune-telling, predicting the future, communicating with the dead and spirits). There's a big occult secret behind the use of certain plants. This doesn't necessarily make them bad, although a lot I find are, but we must look at many factors to determine their judgement. I am non-bias in my writings on ethnobotanicals.

Some other facts to leave you with: LSD is derived from natural sources like ergot, hawaiian baby woodrose seeds, and morning glory seeds. All of these sources contain some type of poison. HBWR seeds have a poisonous coating, as do morning glory seeds. It's very confusing to some, because LSA can be taken without anything poisoning occurring, but the seed coating is very toxic. This leaves one with a lust for chemistry and no regard for the law with the temptation to try to prep some type of shamanic alchemical "neon god" out of it.. Consider the fact that the poison may be a hint not to mess with it, plus LSD's connection to the occult(and even aleister crowley), and the fact that it was and still is an IDOL, made in the likeness of something in the earth beneath. Finally, another point, seeds that contain ergot and LSA, were used by sorcerers for DIVINATION and other occult means. so Generally, LSD and its natural sources that it is deried from, all have some sort of bad joojoo attached to them. We can't judge chamomile just because wiccans use it, but it is something to keep in mind. Don't allow yourself to be herded in the wrong direction by the very subtle but persistent serpent. I'm not being biased either as I am pro-cannabis and kratom.

The doc below was produced by Bouncing Bear Botanicals back in the day. These guys were very influential. The shop is still around but rebranded after the owners got out of prison for mislabeling k2 and spice as "natural". It seems they were involved in the mass production and distribution of k2. I emailed the owner just to ask some questions, and noticed he has 666 at the end of his email address. Between this, and Krystal cole(the gov informant who used to be an affiliate marketer for bouncing bear, who advertised for them and talked about LSD and psychedelics, and "the god within"), you can see the connection. Krystal cole was also involved with the worlds largest underground LSD manufacturing facility in an underground missile silo out in Kansas. BBB used to sell LSA containing seeds. I smell a conspiracy... I merely post this documentary for educational purposes, and so Christians can see what's going on out there ( the serpent is at work ) Again, I don't go around condemning plants like most Christians do, but make educated judgements and warn against those that are dangerous, and defend those which God wants us to have. I'm not bias

Beware, the term "entheogen" that's being pushed in this documentary, and in new age books, is a satanic deception. It is an indoctrinated way of decieving you into turning a drug into an idol. LSD is an entheogen, an IDOL. DMT is being promoted as an "entheogen", that's an idol ( a god within, a false god within ). The context of the use, as well as the nature of the substance matters when judging whether or not God is ok with it. I'm against pharmaceuticals.


Look at some of the artwork that Alex Grey publishes. His art is based off visions that he's had on DMT and other psychedelics. Notice the five pointed stars, and the eyes..
