Acacia Tree of Life 1*37 Coincidences ~ Horseshoes ~ GHREES ~ the Golden Dawn ~ Badge #1258


UPDATE September 30, 2015

Acacia known commonly as acacia, thorntree, whistling thorn, or wattle, is a genus of shrubs and trees described by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in 1773.

According to Easton’s Bible Dictionary, the acacia tree may be the “burning bush” (Exodus 3:2) which Moses encountered in the desert. Also, when God gave Moses the instructions for building the Tabernacle, he said to “make an ark” and “a table of acacia wood” (Exodus 25:10 & 23)
Christ’s crown of thorns is thought to have been woven from acacia.

The Arbre du Ténéré in Niger was the most isolated tree in the world, about 400 km (249 mi) from any other tree. The tree was knocked down by a truck driver in 1973.

Egyptian mythology has associated the acacia tree with characteristics of the tree of life, such as in the Myth of Osiris and Isis.

Interesting … the tree of life got knocked down in 1973, but the name ISIS has been resurrected.

ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al Sham (Al Sham meaning the Levant, or Greater Syria). ISIL is the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. So as you can see, they are basically the same thing, but ISIS uses the Arabic word ‘Al-Sham’ for the region.

Due to the badge #1258 assigned me in the year I left the fire department, early early early in my quest the year/numbers 1582 came into view.

The Gregorian calendar become the official ‘timepiece’ in 1582 is one coincidence, there are many others.

On March 26, 1582, Kelly was shown a great book with the leaves filled with squares. For the next 13 months, Dee and Kelly struggled to copy the contents of this angelic volume, despite interruptions and interference from the spirits. The vision of the book marked the first appearance of material concerned with the angelic language. There have been recorded something like seven thousand natural languages in human history. Human ingenuity has created perhaps another thousand languages, mostly for religious and magickal uses.[8] But we have no record of any language stranger than the one that emerged from these scrying sessions: Dee and Kelly’s Angelic or Enochian language is unique.

The alphabet appeared first; twenty-one special characters each with its own title. The titles are odd, with little relationship between title and the phonetic value of the character. Dee and Kelly were instructed to draw the characters they saw in an eight by eight square held up by the angel Ave. A faint yellow outline of an alphabetic character appeared on the page in front of Dee, which he then filled in with ink. The characters were somewhat similar to several magickal scripts, including that described by Pantheus in his Voarchadumia, but more refined. They are also vaguely reminiscent of Ethiopian characters.

The titles of the twenty-one letters emerged in three groups of seven; twenty characters spell seven titles in the first group, twenty-one in the second and twenty-three in the third, for a total of 64 characters. Since each letter is asymmetrical, the complete group of twenty-one forms three variations on the seven-fold symmetry set. Only eighteen letters are used to spell out the titles of the letters; the three left out letters, B, Q, and Z, one from each of the three symmetry groups, are the “mother” letters used to mark the three directions of space. The missing or hidden 22nd letter, corresponding to the Greek Theta, is the invisible center point of the cube, formed as in the Hebrew language. These characters or letters were then used to dictate the first texts in the angelic language.

On Good Friday, March 29, 1582, the angels began with a slow deliberate method —

Who Is the Greatest?

18 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

Matthew 18:2-5

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

So in 2007 when I retired from the fire department and was handed a new badge** number #1258, is it a coincidence that I went in search of a truth that I needed to find, and I ended up fulfilling an archetypal quote?

** due to amalgamation we were issued new badge numbers, and for 23+ years I had badge #856.

A Maypole topped with a swastika is raised for a May Day parade in the Lustgarten in Berlin.
The May holiday became an important celebration in the Nazi calendar. Germany, April 26, 1939.
— National Archives and Records Administration, College Park, Md.

The Potala Palace, winter palace of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, symbolizes Tibetan Buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of Tibet. The complex, comprising the White and Red Palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on Red Mountain in the centre of Lhasa Valley, at an altitude of 3,700m.

White and red palaces sitting at 3700 meters …
I love coincidences, especially at this level

UPDATE March 29, 2015

This coincidence seems worthy of posting.
I wonder if scientists know they are being played like zeros and ones by the cosmic fiddler Nero?
Rotate the ‘N’ in NERO to reveal the ‘Z’ERO.
Similar to finding the two words (comprised of vowels and consonants) RoTaS and ZeRo in the word ZoRoaSTeR.
Does the name Zoroaster carry forward a deeper meaning without us being conscious of the process?

Scientists have sequenced a 37,000-year-old genome.
The results show that present-day Scandinavians are the closest living relatives to the first people in Europe.

An international team of scientists have sequenced the genome of a 37,000-year-old male skeleton found in Kostenki in Russia.

The study, which was recently published in Science, sheds entirely new light on who we are as Europeans.

“From a genetic point of view he’s an European,” says Professor Eske Willerslev, Director of the Centre for GeoGenetics at the University of Copenhagen, who was involved in the new study, and adds:

“Actually, he is closer to Danes, Swedes, Finns and Russians than to Frenchmen, Spaniards and Germans”.

And I do find the above interesting.
Widukind the last Saxon to oppose Charlemagne found refuge with the Danes before eventually converting to Christianity.

And he did say Neanderthals and modern man interbred about 57,000 years ago.
Another ’37’ coincidence.

The paired swastika symbols are included, at least since the Liao Dynasty (AD 907–1125), as part of theChinese writing system ( and ) and are variant characters for 萬 or 万 (wàn in Mandarin, man in Korean, Cantonese, and Japanese, vạn in Vietnamese) meaning “all” or “eternity” (lit. myriad).

The swastika marks the beginning of many Buddhist scriptures

UPDATE August 5, 2014

I came across the above image/text today on this website here:


These next two links also discuss the same recurring archetype that has been *branded* into our minds, not unlike the way corporations *brand* products, some of the products eventually become part of the collective consciousness.

i.e. left hand ~ the cross ~ right hand

Greek Golden Dawn political party logo
one is a mirror image do you know which one they use?
what numbers do you see?

Today is December 12, 2013 and I just saw this image for the first time on the internet.

The image below I took back in 2006 while I was in Peru.

Shortly afterward I added the swastika because if ‘fit’ so well.
This mandala photographed in a Catholic monastery in Peru was a perfect template for the Nazi swastika without a doubt.

Rosetta Fractal Mandala appears to have a traditional laurel/olive wreath.

Laurel wreaths are sometimes used in heraldry. It may be used as a charge in the shield, around the shield or on top of it.
In Greek mythology, Apollo is represented wearing a laurel wreath on his head. In ancient Greece wreaths were awarded to victors.
Whereas ancient laurel wreaths are most often depicted as a horseshoe shape, modern versions are usually complete rings.

The Rosetta Fractal Mandala has what appears to be a gold/green laurel wreath.

… and yes a ton of shit came my way within the next year.
Hail Cesear!

The following year the cosmos via the higher self  ‘HS’  told me to retire prematurely from my job as firefighter and then …

… well my HS was not quite so clear what I should do next with my life in fact.


Interesting site;

There is good reason to suppose that the crescent form of the horseshoe links the symbol to pagan Moon goddesses of ancient Europe such as Artemis and Diana, and that the protection invoked is that of the goddess herself, or, more particularly, of her sacred vulva.

As such, the horseshoe is related to other magically protective doorway-goddesses, such as the Irish sheela-na-gig, and to lunar protectresses such as the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is often shown standing on a crescent moon and placed within a vulval mandorla or vesica pisces.

In most of Europe, the Middle-East, and Spanish-colonial Latin America protective horseshoes are placed in a downward facing or vulval position, as shown here, but in some parts of Ireland and Britain people believe that the shoes must be turned upward or “the luck will run out.” Americans of English and Irish descent prefer to display horseshoes upward; those of German, Austrian, Italian, Spanish, and Balkan descent generally hang them downward.

In regions where the horseshoe is placed facing upward, folks believe the horseshoe must point up “or the luck runs out.” In places where it is hung facing downward they say exactly the opposite — “it must point down so the luck can pour onto you.” However, in its function as an amulet for magical protection, especially over the doorways of barns and stables, the horseshoe usually points downward and it is said that “no witch will pass under it.” The “Good Luck” horseshoe image i use on my web pages came from a 1940s American printer’s stock cut book, probably drawn and engraved by a German-American, hence the horseshoe points downward.

Why do I have a fascination with 777 or horseshoes?

One word ~ magnets ~

…plus the fact I always thought the inner circle at Stonehenge looked like a horseshoe.
…plus I came across this article written by a theosophist in 1886.

1886 was at about the same time that we appeared to be on the right path in the ‘recovery process‘ … and then Einstein in 1904 began a ‘discovery process’ and took our awakening in a slightly different direction.

A mechanistic science void of spiritual insights that took its direction from WWI and WWII helped us lose our way again.

The Path – June 1886


“The Human body represents three horse-shoe Magnets, two of them having the neutral point at the summit of the head and the third in an inverted position to that of the two first ones. The axis the most important divides us laterally from right to left, the other from the forepart to the back part of the body.

The first horse-shoe Magnet has its neutral point at the summit of the head, and its extremities or poles at the right hand and the left hand, the right hand being the positive, and the left hand the negative pole.

The second horse-shoe Magnet has also its neutral point at the summit of the head, and the extremites or poles of its two branches are the right and the left foot, the right foot being positive and the left foot negative.

The third horse-shoe Magnet, the one in an inverted position, has its neutral point at the perineum and the extremities of its branches are the forehead and the occiput. The forehead being positive and the occiput negative.”

to be continued … I need to go back to the ‘drawing’ board and sketch something…

Actually what happened was I went online, logged into faKebook and Ben McCulley had left this image for me, coincidentally the site we are on discusses 137 as potentially a KEY to help unlock/access the collective unconscious … which Ben and ME appear to be doing … for three days in a row … our thoughts seem to be matching the next day.


Ben posted this at the same time I was applying yellow highlights to a series of images, and the one I posted was the last one I applied the highlights to.
And faKebook records us posting within the same minute of each other.

Ben’s doodles vs.  RaphaEL’s highlights


Ben posted his twisted 3 magnet sketch (see below/above) AFTER I had been reading about how the Human body is represented by three horse-shoe Magnets.

Are we meeting in the middle or is one of us a copy KAt energy thief…?


…Of the coincidences was today.
Ben posted the image below with 137 written in the center of the square.

Very nice, we see the SEED required by the Master Builder. The same one used by the Pharaohs to build temples.

I immediately saw the 49 because this morning quite early I had been reading Manly P. Halls treatise on ‘fire’.

Melchizedek and the Mystery of Fire

I had got up out of bed about 5 a.m. to come downstairs, as I usually do I got a cup of coffee, sat down in my big comfy red recliner, and proceeded to read the last chapter, The Sacred Fire in the Spine and the Brain.

What did Manly P. Hall say about 49?
Later….to be continued.

Why the above images have revealed themselves as manifestations of metaphysical realities;

Badge 856

I had two badges in my 24+ year career with the fire department, number 856 for most of my career and after Toronto and 5 other surrounding cities  amalgamated I was assigned a new number, 1258 and it was issued to me the year I retired in 2007.

Amalgamation occurred in 1998 when six municipalities comprising Metropolitan Toronto – East York, Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, York, and the former city of Toronto – and the regional municipality of Metro Toronto were dissolved and amalgamated into a single municipality called the City of Toronto (colloquially dubbed the “megacity”) by an act of the Government of Ontario. This created the current City of Toronto. The new City of Toronto became the fifth largest municipality in North America after amalgamation, trailing Mexico City, New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Badge #856 and the Fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC

There has been some debate as to when the second siege of Jerusalem took place. Though there is no dispute that Jerusalem fell the second time in the summer month of Tammuz (Jeremiah 52:6), William F. Albright dates the end of Zedekiah’s reign (and the fall of Jerusalem) to 587 BC, whereas Edwin R. Thiele offers 586 BC.

37th year of the exile

According to 2 Kings 25:27, Jeconiah was released from prison “in the 37th year of the exile”, in the year that Amel-Marduk (Evil-Merodach) came to the throne. Babylonian records show that Amel-Marduk began his reign in October 562 BCE.[8] According to 2 Kings 25:27, Jeconiah was released from prison “on the 27th day of the twelfth month”, during March of 561 BCE. This indicates the first year of captivity to be 598/597 BCE, according to Judah’s Tishri-based calendar.

If Zedekiah (“My righteousness is Yahweh”) was enthroned in 597 B.C. and in the eleventh year of his administration, Nebuchadnezzar captured the town for the second time because of his rebellion, as Jeremiah says, we find out that subtracting 11 years to the 597, the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple happened in year 586 B.C.

Below note the coincidence in the spelling of the names in conjunction with the numbers ‘568’.

Zedekiah reign ended in 586
Wedekind badge was 856

btw Wedekind is the surname of the author of this blog you are reading.
This first badge coincidence becomes even more significant with the surprise that my second career badge number supplies us with.

while the waLemba call it “the voice of God.”

Badge #1258 and Q.V.M. 5218

Parfitt when he found ‘his ARK’ in the museum storeroom, this NGoMa ARK had a tag on it >>> Q.V.M. 5218

i.e. Queen Victoria Museum 5218

I love these coincidence/s

  1. I live on Victoria Ave.
  2. one of my daughters goes to Queen‘s University
  3. my other daughter would like to work in a musuem
  4. my fire department badge issued to me in 2007, the year I retired was 1258
    (see text and images below)

Looking back on the journey I have experienced since retirement it is clear that badge 1258  was an indication of the quest I was about to embark on post retirement.

Those numbers 1258 and its anagram 5218 have been very dear to me and Tudor Parfitt in our quest for the ‘Ark of the Covenant’.

Three-strand Braid Rope, the tauna hiri, next to the NGoMa pattern

Fig. 66. In A, the strand 1 has just crossed 3, which was in front of it, and passed over to the left. Of the pair on the left, the posterior strand 2 is crossed over the one in front of it, namely 1, on its way across as in B. This now puts the pair on the right. The posterior strand 3 is carried over its front strand 2 on its way to the left, as in C. Of the pair on the left, 1 will cross 3, and so on.


I do need to mention how the Lucky Swastika Coin I found on the Mojo website that has the initial of my last name ‘W‘ plus in reverse from right to left my former badge numbers 1258 which were also my former employee number number 52801 and a diver’s tag 5281 that I was issued back in 1983 while diving with 2 other firefighters in FAthom 5 Provincial pARK, diving among old wrecks.

And doesn’t the ‘W‘ look like ‘Batman‘ or maybe an ‘owl‘.
It is not a coincidence that the bat and owl are interchangeable in the world of archetype.

CRUCIFIED BAT made out of right angLEs
Do angELs help us figure out LIfE’S angLEs?
…. as a child the only kite I ever owned was a ‘bat kite’ popular back in the 1960s.

Which of the above bats is a potential trigger or reminder to our higher consciousness of the Cretan double Labrys, thereby evoking the 235 square root vision?

UPDATE January 9, 2014

I had to add this link.

As mentioned previously 125 is key in the formula that creates the Golden mean as a number. In a sense 125 can be seen as a kind of expression of the golden mean as a whole number. It also has a very interesting relationship to the number 8:

1 / 8 = 0.125 and 1 / 0.125 = 8

Important for the reader to know, that what I AM does not endorse or belong to any clandestine organizations listed in this blog.
My research is ‘neutral’ other than remaining focused on TRUTH.
The only SS or secret society that I belong to is a group called the human race.
Maybe the reader has heard of them?
Their lack of consciousness threatens their very survival.

IMHO none of the folks in the above articles ‘get it’ in the same way I do.
I can honestly say that my higher self has taken this ‘role’ playing to the next level.

    The nats (Burmese: နတ်‌; MLCTS: nat; IPA: [naʔ]) are spirits worshipped in Burma (or Myanmar) in conjunction with Buddhism. They are divided between the 37 Great Nats and all the rest (i.e., spirits of trees, water, etc.). Almost all of the 37 Great Nats were human beings who met violent deaths (စိမ်းသေ, lit. “green death”). They may thus also be called nat sein (နတ်စိမ်း; lit. green spirits). The word ‘sein’, while meaning ‘green’, is being used to mean ‘raw’ in this context. There are however two types of nats in Burmese Buddhist belief.
