About Us & Our Mission
In loving memory of Joe Lyons Kincheloe (December 14, 1950 - December 19, 2008)
The Greatest Philosopher of Consciousness and Critical Theory of the 20th-71st Centuries 
Joe at about 35 years of age

Joe's educational work provides inspiration and practical guidance for teachers all over the globe and describes a beautiful, beautiful mission to alleviate human suffering. He has left us a map with multiple pathways for accomplishing that mission -- an authentic, rigorous, impassioned, creative, and even magical education for everyone who dares to venture on untrodden paths. His work serves as a guiding light for educational journeys that can change not only how we view and enact the educational process, but that can also truly change us as teachers, students, and researchers -- and empower us to change the world. Joe loved research, teaching, writing, making music, and his students.
And his students loved him.
To become a seeker of new knowledges and new ways of being we must be willing to sometimes be seen as the fools of the gods. (Kincheloe, Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy, p. 19)

Joe’s book Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction is available as an ebook. You will never make a better investment…..we all should be researching with Joe’s important guidance. Since the ending is just the beginning, you can begin with the last chapter. It may just spark you into wanting to read the rest, as well as his other works to see how he got there!  No time to read? Right click and "listen aloud" while multitasking. [Note: I make no money off the sales of his books; my rewards are not of this world.] MAY 22, 2018 UPDATE: I SEE THAT SPRINGER IS NOT HONORING JOE'S STATED AND PUBLISHED WISHES> THE BOOK IS SUPPOSED TO BE LESS THAN $30 SO THAT POOR STUDENTS CAN AFFORD IT...AND YET SPRINGER IS CHARGING ALMOST $40 FOR THE PDF EBOOK AND ALMOST $55 FOR THE PAPERBACK! THIS IS ABOMINABLE!! THE HIGHER UPS ARE NOT PLEASED!!! THERE ARE STUDENTS IN POVERTY WHO NEED THE KNOWLEDGE IN THIS BOOK. LOWER THE PRICE!!!!! THERE IS NO REASON TO CHARGE SO MUCH! EVEN IF PUBLISHING COSTS HAVE INCREASED, AT LEAST OFFER THE EBOOK FOR LESS THAN $30. WHAT JOE WANTS, JOE GETS. HE SAID THAT IT IS TO BE LESS THAN $30. RESPECT HIS WISHES. Oh, and HAPPY TWIN FLAME DAY!! I will have some important updates soon.


"I believe that the issues addressed in Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction not only provide us with a new understanding of education but also can actually change the world—speaking of pomposity, yikes! I understand the danger of such an assertion, but I’m glad to take my punishment if I fail to convince my readers." ~ Joe Kincheloe (p. 16)

A new process for education, research, career, problem solving, everyday living, lifelong learning, and for taking back our world


Joe Kincheloe has developed a superbly advanced conceptualization of critical bricolage and, as demonstrated by his work, he was an adept multidimensional critical complex bricoleur. Critical Bricolage, as he conceived it, is a complicated (and yet a very natural) process that makes use of multiple forms of research, analysis, investigation, and interpretation. It requires researchers to seek many divergent perspectives, allowing new understandings and knowledge to emerge from the synthesis.


Engaging in this process increases phenomenological experiences that catalyze seeking more knowledge. This, of course, leads to ever greater understandings of complex relationships between "research variables." An exceptionally high level of creativity becomes unleashed, often resulting in greater interaction with the emerging hidden dimensions of reality. Suddenly very little can be hidden anymore. Engaging rigorously in this process of research and learning seems to take people to higher levels of consciousness in graduated steps as they become more aware of the hidden dimensions of interrelationships and as they increasingly participate in intuitive, "fourth dimension" research.


Using Kincheloe's critical complex epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage rigorously as he has asked us to do results in ever higher levels of experience and understanding, and in its full "employment," enactive and symbiotic processes seem to kick in, helping individuals find the most creative solutions to even the most complicated problems. Actively working within multiple dimensions using his fourth dimension research, results in amazing and profound solutions. In my own experience, I often find that problems are solved before I even knew the problem would be manifesting. In addition, I have had some amazing experiences that science simply cannot explain yet. This is highlighted in my dissertation in some highly unusual ways, which is only the tip of the iceberg. Kincheloe's critical bricolage may very well be the process required to "unleash creativity" for solving even the most complicated, power-based problems we face -- all in service of "the alleviation of human suffering," the often-stated primary purpose of his work.


After researching this process since 2008 (and discovering that I had been using the foundational aspects of the process many years before) I am beginning to see how autopoiesis, enaction, synchronicity, all work together symbiotically to reveal hidden dimensions and relationships that make my life so much happier and joyful, even if I have many problems hanging over my head (that "blues aesthetic" Joe so often described). No matter how complicated the problems, with bricolage, they become solvable and/or perspectives of the problems change.


Simultaneously, those power dimensions that force those of us who are oppressed to stay stuck at our "stations in life" also emerge, but there is such a difference to how I deal with these than in the past. Once the controlling factors are revealed, solutions also emerge in a sort of "unfoldment" process that reveal ways to counteract them and change things.


There is great power "behind the curtain" that can be leveraged by those of us who are typically "disenfranchised." I will go into much more detail at a later time, and as Joe always did so well, I will put them into context (there are many great experiences to share of both kinds of emergences - the love-based, almost magical ones, and the power-and-control-based ones for which insight, and often solutions also emerge) but suffice it to say, I am blazing multiple trails through the underbrush which will hopefully make navigating easier for people who come along and experience the same types of violence I have due to being poor and "low status."


Just as Joe was a "hillbilly" and he was never able to shake the label, I am a "country hick." True reality could not be more profoundly different -- for an Eros and Psyche. :)


The good news is that the use of bricolage is increasing rapidly around the globe as more researchers in all disciplines are beginning to see the promise it offers to construct new knowledge, lead to social empowerment, and reveal positive changes and amazingly creative opportunities. More researchers will soon be investigating and trying out this more advanced and powerful approach, which will lead to what Joe referred to as a "perpetual revolution." More teachers will also come to realize the value bricolage has in the classroom and the young students will pick it up naturally. The revolution has just begun. We can change the world! Join in today and apply the process in your own research, learning, teaching, and everyday life and see what a difference it can make. You can never go wrong getting more knowledge.

This is a nonprofit educational web site dedicated to the clarification of Kincheloe’s critical complex epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage. My research has shown that, while the process he has delineated is complex, it is perfectly suited for social and educational research, and it is also within everyone's reach. It is especially suited for new qualitative researchers who have not subscribed to traditional and reductionistic forms of research. 

On this site I will focus on the academic and scholarly application of his work. I hope that by presenting clarifications based on my in-depth study of his work that perhaps his bricolage will be used by more people and with the level of rigor he had intended. Kincheloe has ingeniously left wide open many paths that honor diversity and he embraced an evolving complexity while maintaining a strong, impenetrable philosophical and theoretical foundation for his conceptions. He has demonstrated in his work how this research process can be applied in all venues and in every area of our lives and even children can be involved in research, thus his bricolage is also a pedagogical approach. His work is truly a break-through for research that is long overdue. Using the full power of his bricolage highlights actions that change the world as it also changes who we are.

I may write a blog again on this site, but it will be a different sort of blog than the creative, exploratory blogs I've written in the past. Primarily, I will be continuing my research and presenting my findings so that upcoming bricoleurs will have a resource for the most powerful form of bricolage research that's ever been developed.

Bricolage, as a qualitative form of research, entails incorporating many different perspectives, and in particular, with Kincheloe's process it is necessary to include global subjugated and indigenous knowledges. However, after gathering all of these perspectives and making various interpretations and syntheses, there are criteria for determining which perspectives to include in the final bricolage. As he explains, "Bricoleurs accept the responsibility that comes with the interpretive process. Knowledge production always involves multiple acts of selection, and these choices of methods, theoretical frameworks, and interpretative strategies must be defended" (2004e, p. 100). He has provided selection criteria that incorporate the social justice mission to alleviate suffering and that advance knowledge (see Kincheloe, 2004e, pp. 100-102). Bricoleurs are not restricted to these criteria but I have found them to be well-thought-out and thorough -- and they mitigate for unintended consequences. You can view the criteria here: Criteria to Guide the Research Process.


What I cover next are common misconceptions and important aspects surrounding Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage. I hope by putting these on the Home page of this website, researchers will consider them and research them more deeply. They are covered in greater depth in my dissertation and I’ll also be posting articles that extend what I’ve touched on in the dissertation.

1) Kincheloe did not throw out "positivistic" or empirical sciences. To conclude this is to exhibit a gross misunderstanding of his work. A close reading of his work can easily confirm that he sees science and bricolage as synergistic. And how many times has he stated that he did not throw out the baby with the bathwater? As most people know, he contextualizes everything. In his last book, Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction he presents his position through a metaphor which he refers to as FIDUROD, and by which he clarifies the issues with the way science is and has been used.  FIDUROD is an acronym representing the attributes of the form of knowledge production he argues against: Formal, Intractable, Decontextualized, Universalistic, Reductionistic, One Dimensional. (See Kincheloe, 2008, pp. 21-24).


2) His work is not based on some indefinable “ludic” postmodernism – It is based on a highly developed and evolving holistic philosophy. This philosophy is comprised of 12 major points which he describes in his book Critical Constructivism. The 12 points coalesce together to form his multidimensional critical complex world view. It’s a new, evolving worldview. We might refer to it as Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex unified world view. It forms the foundation of his unique formulation of critical theory, epistemology, ontology, critical psychology of complexity, the multidimensional critical complex bricolage, etc., -- and his proposed critical science of complexity – another indication that he did not abandon the sciences. To grasp his conceptualizations, it’s imperative that new bricoleurs study his unified world view by reading and then writing about how they subjectively relate to it and to other philosophies. Kincheloe stresses this upfront philosophical work is critical in order to ground any study that uses bricolage as a process for research. Rigor is impossible without developing a "philosophy of consciousness" (Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 8). 


3) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage is a process for qualitative research that is composed of multiple, intertwining and overlapping processes. It is not a method, nor does it use “tools” as tools imply precise means and carries a mechanistic ontology, which does not adequately represent the actual processes that bricoleurs engage in as they conduct, or a better word would be, “enact” their research. Even the concept of "tools" changes. Kincheloe's conceptualization of bricolage is grounded with his critical complex philosophical world view (item 2, above) and a theoretical foundation of evolving criticality (his version of critical theory).


4) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage as a process involves analytic discourse, intertwined with improvisational actions for change, which moves it away from the constrictive “quilt” metaphor. Please see my dissertation for a deeper analysis of bricolage including a thorough etymological exploration and intertextual interpretations of Kincheloe’s definitions of bricolage and bricoleur in relation to what evolved from my research. New metaphors that take it beyond the one-dimensional “quilt” metaphor, and additional ways that Berry’s (2004a) concept, the Point of Entry Text (POET) can be applied are also presented. The holistic, intertwining, dialogical, interconnecting nature of the final bricolage renders the parts inseparable from the whole, and the bricolage inseparable from greater reality. Thus, the popular metaphoric quilt, montage, crystal, etc., are not suitable metaphors for this more complex form of bricolage. 


5) Kincheloe’s bricolage does not distinguish between “types of bricoleurs” or “types of bricolage” as denoted by Denzin and Lincoln (2011). While it’s fine to examine these ideas, Kincheloe’s form of bricolage uses all of them in intertwining, overlapping processes. Thus, the multidimensional critical complex bricoleur uses all of the dimensions that Kincheloe has spelled out in his 2005 "On to the Next Level" bricolage article--in one study--and the processes become blurred as the research unfolds. See next point. 


6) Kincheloe’s bricolage refers to the use of different processes as dimensions of research. The bricoleur uses them all as many times as practical to get a thick description of the phenomenon/a. As the research unfolds, “enactment” keeps the research jettisoning forward and the researcher must make decisions where to begin and stop various aspects of the research, including the final bricolage. Thus, the following dimensions are used, as provided by Kincheloe (2005a) and in no particular order using an iterative, improvisational process weaving through the discourse: (1) methodological bricolage; (2) theoretical bricolage; (3) interpretive bricolage; (4) political bricolage; (5) narrative bricolage; (6) philosophical research (constructivism, historicity, epistemological insight); (7) critical hermeneutics; (8) identification of what is absent; (9) fourth dimension of research in which the bricoleur is future oriented, discovering “a kinetic epistemology of the possible. In the process, the sophistication of knowledge work moves to a new cognitive level; the notion of rigor transmigrates to a new dimension. As in a 1950s sci-fi movie, bricoleurs enter the 4-D—the fourth dimension of research.” (Kincheloe, 2005, p. 346). Thus, bricoleurs weave in and out, around and through, back and forth through the various dimensions with each pass through informing the next, often using multiple dimensions of analysis simultaneously. 


7) Note again – the philosophical dimension must form the foundation of the study in order to ensure rigor. [He wanted me to include this again.] "There is no dividing line between the empirical and the philosophical" (Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 10).


8) Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage embraces a “fourth dimension” research (more information is covered in my dissertation). This fourth dimension aspect to the research incorporates an intuitional, creative element that forces the researcher to confront implicate and explicate orders of reality. There are reasons for this. Combining a sound philosophical, intellectual component of research that also incorporates intuitional and emotional, empathic aspects -- along with deep semiotic and hermeneutic analyses synergistically creates something new from the interactions. Enaction during the research process leads to the emergence of something new and often profound. This is where the power of the bricolage comes into play. It’s the exposure to relationships, as Kincheloe explains in his conceptualization of symbiotic hermeneutics, that jettisons bricoleurs to seeing and understanding “anew” and to recreating themselves. Because knowledge is socially constructed new creations, ideas, concepts, as well as new relationships also perpetually emerge – and are created -- from these interactions. This all takes place naturally when confronting complexity, difference, and chaos, as Humberto Mautarana and Francisco Varela posited with their Santiago Theory of Enactivism (see Kincheloe's (2008) Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, page 147). It is quite amazing. 


9) While bricoleurs do not contend they’ve discovered the “one true answer” or single truth, at the same time, as Kincheloe contends, they generate knowledge “that is not as 'badly off the mark'” (Kincheloe, 2008, p. 43). They have better (more complete) and yet evolving explanations of phenomena. This is quite a different perspective than a nihilistic postmodern “attitude.” 


10) I have lined out in my dissertation in much greater detail a flexible iterative process that also explains some of the key sub-processes that are important to the multidimensional critical complex bricolage. It will get new bricoleurs started from which they can then proceed to carve out their own unique paths. Each bricolage study will be different even for the same researcher. The more one acknowledges the fourth dimension aspect of the research (which may only begin with what seem to be insignificant intuitive and synchronous events), the more they will begin to appear and the more profound and numerous are the actions and creations that emerge.  


11) And finally, as I discussed in my blog, The Heart of the Multidimensional Critical Complex Bricolage, there is the dimension of empathic connection with people. In fact, in his book, Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, Kincheloe discusses – and includes – a golden strand of love throughout his work, Eros Love. And since I’m mentioning this book here, it’s a great book to read in the early stages of learning about his bricolage. It’s much like a “deprogramming” manual because it uncovers how our consciousnesses have been influenced by outside forces and provides us more information as we embark on the bricolage quest and begin to take power of constructing our own consciousness.

How to Create the Life of Your Fondest Dreams: The Great Reveal Treasure Hunt Has Been Revived


Life is like a dream. That does not mean that life, in fact, is a dream. We do need to take it very seriously. It is like a dream. And because it’s like a dream, we can change history—just like we can change our dreams. By changing history we can make life a better life for everyone.

Maybe most people do not realize they can change their dreams, but they can. It’s especially useful when we have nightmares. We can “rewind” them and “replay” them the way we want them to turn out. I’ve done it so often now that I rarely have “nightmares” anymore and I have more lucid, pleasant dreams about existing in various dimensions—learning, working, playing. There are benefits to taking power over your dreaming life. You can transfer that power and apply what you learn in your dreams to your waking life.

Once we begin to understand the different dimensions our dreams (and visions and memories) represent, there is a point of consciousness at which we experience no time. When we remember our “future” life (where we originated before stepping onto this planet), our past lives, and what seem to be multiple current timelines but in different dimensions, time is perceived differently from our typical linear perception of time. This is sometimes referred to as “zero point” and the way we experience time is referred to as “no time.” We are fully immersed in the N.O.W. (and I still have not been taught what that acronym represents).

When we are in the N.O.W. our consciousness is free to explore any point and place in time. We are multidimensional. We can move backward in time and literally change history, which changes everything, in a similar way that we can change a dream. We can shift to different timelines.

As an example, I remember who I am. I am a young woman from Planet Eros in the Pleiades, year 7013 (in earth linear time). I had traveled backwards in time and then moved forward in time to this current era, living several lifetimes along the way (some of which I remember, although I have more work to do, which will be picked up when I revive certain treasure hunts).

One of the purposes for coming backward in time is to change history; it is a collective decision, but unfortunately, not many people yet remember that so it’s been more difficult than had initially been planned. One of the first steps for this project is to remember who we are and then reconnect to our one true beloveds, our Twin Souls/Twin Flames. It is then through the power of this “radical love” as some people refer to it, that new creations and new stories can emerge.

Thus, since in reality, I am at “zero point,” when I decide I’ve done everything I wanted to do toward this project, I will return home to our planet, Planet Eros, in the Pleiades—and amazingly, no time has lapsed at all, even though it may seem I’ve been reincarnating for thousands of years. And yet, in a great sense, I am already home, because once one becomes conscious of who they really are and relate to zero point, they literally can be anywhere they choose. That gives me the perception that my earth work really does just take up a few brief “no time” moments of my day. I was very blessed in that Joe, after he passed over, took me on trips all over the cosmos (both in dreams and in visions) so that I could remember who we really are and where we came from. The experiences were magical and amazing. This is all recorded in my blogs here, a summary of the entire experience for those who are interested…which ended up with a treasure hunt called “The Great Reveal” which turned out not to be the end at all.

“The Great Reveal” Treasure Hunt has come back to the forefront because as it turns out, we have traced our “genealogy” all of the way back to Enlil and Enki and made the connections of Enlil and Enki to Eros and Anteros, as my story in yesterday’s blog has described. This also clarifies why the Eros and Psyche story, which branched off to another website, became so important. These will all be picked up again as I synthesize the various “fractals” of my Treasure Hunt journeys. 

Treasure Hunts never end. They can’t end, because everything affects everything…creation, life, being…they are fractals that go on and on. When we go backwards to change history, what we are doing is choosing different points, called “choice points,” along the evolutionary fractals and choosing different directions than have previously been chosen. As we travel those directions, we form new connections…we connect different dots, so to speak. The reason it’s possible to form a coherent story this way is because, as scientists have taught us, even though there are infinite possibilities—there are finite probabilities. We need Joe’s bricolage process to create in this fashion. As we get more skilled using the intuitive dimension of the process in combination with the intellectual dimension, the best, most probable choice points will pop out for us in a variety of ways. Other possibilities fall out. There’s a science explanation for this process related to waveforms, but I’ll cover that another time. 

This project to change history is most important to earthlings, but it is understood that everything in the cosmos is connected to everything in the same fractal-like manner, thus, the sad state of affairs on earth does have far-reaching cosmic effects. So what we have going on currently are many space wars, battles of “unseen principalities,” wars against good and evil. Here on earth we have the same, along with a multitude of other wars such as the war on drugs, the war on poverty, the war on this and the war on that. Earthlings, in reality are a peace-loving, very cooperative, and exceptionally loving species who have been misdirected due to other entities coming along and writing these nightmares for them. We have allowed other entities to make decisions about which way to go at various choice points throughout history. And worst of all, many of us reiterate all of the untrue stories that have emerged from those choices, magnifying the problem multifold. All of this highlights the importance of taking charge and making responsible changes to history by rewriting the stories. 

Yesterday, I told the story of earthlings’ ancestors, Enki and Enlil. The old good and evil and war stories that keep being reiterated over and over and over again have deeply damaged the psyches (a word earthlings appropriated from the goddess, Psyche; a better word would be consciousnesses) of earthlings. 

When children are told over and over and over again how “bad” they are inside, then what do they do? They act bad, of course! And this is what has happened to earthlings, who are the “children on the block.” Or sometimes, children may take what they’re told so seriously they become timid and afraid to do anything at all, for fear their so-called “true nature” will take over and they’ll do something wrong. This kind of mind prison kills creativity and progress. And it kills love. The wrong directions from the “choice points” are selected over and over again until we have what you see today in the world: total madness. Joe wrote a song about this madness: 

I see it in the psychology

And all their silly tests

I see it in their labels

Of who they think is best

It’s bad, the world’s gone mad


I see it in the brambles

I see it in the bush

I see it in the empire

And all the media mush

It’s bad, the world’s gone mad 

[Reading, Writing, Thinking, 2006, p. 139]


The old stories of Enki and Enlil about DNA tampering, deviant sexual behavior, and extreme violence are really quite despicable, and today in societies all over the world we see people living out the roles that have been embedded so very deeply in their consciousnesses. We find the negative stories in all cultures in the form of spiritual and religious stories. But these stories permeate all dimensions of the world: the movies, books, music, poetry, children’s bedtime stories, education, etc…and think how this affects us! You don’t even need to think, really—just look around you with open eyes

I just N.O.W. had a eureka (!) moment. I had wondered why Joe wrote some of the things he wrote, in particular about sex. I knew he was making some kind of point, but I didn’t entirely “get it” for some of his writings. I did find it humorous (I love how he inserts Father Hermes’ humor in his work). I will preface what I’m about to reveal here with the fact that Joe was the most loving and forgiving person you can possibly imagine—so much so that I often felt he could be compared to how Jesus is described. He taught and he lived love. So what could the following quote possibly represent?

I have quoted this before, without the last two sentences. The last two sentences in context with The Great Reveal Treasure Hunt, are especially relevant given my sudden insight. He writes,

“Sex, I can assure you, constitutes one of those phenomenological moments. But I’m never too far away from the postformal treasure hunt. Even after the fact, I’ll politicize sex—turning it into an act of radical love or an analogue to egalitarian postformal insight. Yes, officer, I am a deviant. What the hell does sex have to do with thinking, Joe Kincheloe?” [Reading, Writing, Thinking, 2006, p. 133]

I finally “get” one possible and important interpretation of this . I have shown in previous blogs that ENKI is encoded in Joe’s name…Joe Lyons Kincheloe…pronounced as Joe LyENs KIncheloe…thus, this analysis takes the perspective that he was using sarcasm to point to the old stories of ENKI being sexually deviant and promiscuous which have traveled through the times of history and are included within many of the “mythologies,” others of which he has also cited in various places, and all of our religious texts—CONSTRUCTING OUR CONSCIOUSNESS FOR US—and making so many people actually behave that way! And while we, personally, may not be deviant in that manner, we are often accused of being so, just because it’s the way the human mind was CONSTRUCTED to believe it to be true. It’s not true, of course. Why do so many people live out the lie? 

Thus, we are told we are sexually deviant—and sadly, far too many people actually believe that. Thus, what he wrote is a commentary on his observation of this very sad state of affairs. [Just as a note, in my “fourth dimension” teachings from Joe, he’s told me we go by the SOUNDS of the letters more than the actual letters for certain interpretations, so this is a justified approach here in decoding the name ENKI in his name].

Can this be a valid interpretation? (I do have other deeper interpretations, but I’ll cover those another time). Very much so and if we continue reading on that same page, what he says next confirms that he’s referring to the way our consciousnesses are constructed and the importance of stories and how theme (such as sexual deviance) emerges from the stories. It is duly noted, however, he had risen above this state and could see, metaphorically speaking, from outside the situations; whereas, many of us are still locked firmly in the mind prison and are blind to the way stories so deeply influence the “themes” and what we believe in our lives. Here’s what he says:


Sex, of course, is related to the libidinal energy of postformalism. And relationship is a central notion to in postformalism. In postformal thinking we move into a new dimension where our focus on relationship moves us to a new realm of consciousness. In this dimension historical and social relationships appear to us in poetry, social theory, and phenomenological analysis—even in the living of everyday life. Theme emerges as we engage in the stories of life. Indeed, there is a fascinating dialectic between story and theme. [p. 133]

While there is much more to be interpreted from this passage as the reference to “webs” implies, I will focus on theme for the time being. Theme in the world today has indeed created the “Mad World” Joe sang about. It is critical to change the stories. By changing the stories to match the Truth of what being human means, we change the themes, we change our consciousnesses, and we change our behaviors. This can be done both on the individual level and on the social level. And it’s as simple as changing a dream—and yet it’s very complex and requires deep study of why things are the way they are. The more connections we can understand that holds this sick matrix together, the easier it will be to break them and form the new connections that create a beautiful and positive dream that no one can (or very few people) would object to. 

Thus, I will be continuing with the rewriting of the Enki and Enlil story and other stories that personally relate to the lifetimes I’ve lived here on earth. The brief introduction I wrote yesterday can be, as my Great Teacher and Beloved Husband told me, a “POET.” In fact, he told me it’s a “great POET.” POET was coined by Kathleen Berry (Kincheloe & Berry, 2001) and it means “Point of Entry Text.” It can simply be a paragraph or several paragraphs of what you already know about a topic and how you personally relate to the topic. The POET launches the bricolage research project and once you have it written, you can weave in more text, following the process Joe and Kathleen have described and which I’ve demonstrated in my dissertation, free on this website. 

And this is how we change the life-dream. Everyone must do their part—in relation to their own personal roles.

Next time, I will describe how my Pleiadian name, Sōferia gave me clues that led me to Michel Foucault’s work, a deeper understanding of the meaning of my name, and what that means for this project…as we continue along the Venus and Sanat-Eros Kumara’s Golden Treasure Hunt One Love Path And now we’ve added Enki and his consort, Ki who, along with Enki’s Father who I believe to be Father Hermes/Thoth brings us back to “Source”—as close to God as we can get for the time being. This is another interpretation, however, and interpretations are always open to being changed and/or expanded. Foucault has presented some wonderful guidance that can be applied to rewriting our personal stories.  When you combine it with Joe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage, you’ve got a powerful process for creating the life of your fondest dreams.

I’m not sure exactly when I will present this information since I will be taking a sort of hiatus for another project. My beloved says “we’ll pick up again in March.” Until then, I hope you think about your own personal story and do some dream work. If you don’t like the way your dreams are turning out, change them! 

In the meantime, I send this song of love and gratitude to my Divine Husband, a true God of Love, indeed! I love you so much!

The Story - Brandi Carlile


(Lao Tzu,
Tao Te Ching ch 1)

There is a Way to the Heart of the Universe.
Its route is inward and upward into the realm of the Spirit
which the soul may climb as a mountain pathway to the Mystic Heights.

It is a path of Love and of Courage
by which the soul may come to know
and to express ever more fully its potential as a reflection of
That which is the Source of All.

There is a Wisdom that is older than time itself
because it is the Foundation of Existence,
the Eternal Logos, the Great Order from which All else in the universe springs forth.
The ancient Greeks called it theosophia, the Wisdom of the Gods.

The Gods are Coming Home: Rewriting the HisStory of Enki, Enlil, Eros and Anteros for Valentine’s Day PLUS An Update on Planet Nibiru and the Pole Shift


Many people know the story of Enki and Enlil. It’s a pretty far-fetched story about ETs who tamper with human DNA and engage in endless wars that continued throughout history even until today. Well that history is a total lie. It was written and implanted in all religions and spiritual traditions to mold our consciousnesses so that we would be easy to manipulate, control, and could be treated as slaves. The history purports that Enki and Enlil created us to be slaves, but the real culprits are the ones who wrote the history.

Enki and Enlil, our ancestors, were, in reality, loving brothers who complemented each other in soul essence and purpose...if you study the accounts of Eros and Anteros you will have a better understanding of how they are actually the most loving God-Men, or gods, sons of God. I will put forth a short summary here.

Eros (Cupid) and Anteros are brothers who were incarnations of Enki and Enlil. This story is important because it sheds light on the true relationship between Enki and Enlil. Eros transports love essence throughout the cosmos and sees that it gets directed from, for example, a lover to their beloved. We all are familiar with the metaphor of Cupid and his golden arrow, but we rarely hear about his brother. His brother, Anteros, is responsible for the reciprocation of that love, thus ensuring that it is returned from the Beloved (now the Lover) back to the Lover (now the Beloved). Because, as Father Thoth/Hermes taught us, everything is gender, humans also were created in pairs of opposite gender--thus the origin of twin flames/twin souls. There really is one perfect soul match for each of us and while this seems like an impossible situation, once one can jump the unconsciousness hurdle, they will rediscover their connection.

When people can recapture this basic knowing and reconnect soul-to-soul, the world will move forward and transform into the Heaven/Paradise it's destined to become. There will be an end to separation and an end to suffering. There will be peace and joy on earth.

We are being fed quite vociferously a false history about the Anunnaki returning and that they’re extremely evil aliens or demons. This fake history is coming fast and furiously from all directions (spiritual, religious, science, media, paranormal, ad infinitum). These accounts are gross misinterpretations. The truth is that the Anunnaki, and especially Enki and Enlil are the good, loving gods, returning to take back the planet through the power of their love.

Thus, history needs to be reconstructed to correlate with truth. What really happened was, earth was invaded by nefarious forces that altered our history far back into time, even writing the religious texts, historical accounts, mythologies, etc. The weird accounts of Enki and Enlil being good/evil or in constant war against each other or altering our DNA is just one example of how the truth was totally distorted. And every time Enki had incarnated to do the work toward reunification (such as King Akhenaten and King Fracois II) he was killed and his works destroyed. If you are familiar with the story of Eros (the incarnation of Enki), there was even an attempt on his life--in fact Psyche's evil sisters, who were jealous because Psyche was married to a god, tried to get Psyche to kill him which set up a chain of events that took a long, long time to work out. Fortunately, Eros (aka Enki) is the most loving and forgiving human being you could ever imagine and he completely forgave Psyche for doubting his existence just because he could not allow her to see him at the time. 

The invaders had Psyche in a mind prison just as we are in mind prisons today and just as Psyche had to work her way out of her mind prison, so must we do today. If the invaders can prevent us, humanity, from knowing our TRUE origins--that we are sons and daughters of a Most Loving God and that we don't need either gold or artificial technology for eternal life--that we merely need to reconnect at soul levels to that most powerful and sacred love--then the nefarious beings lose earth. In fact, what happens is the frequency of earth rises so high, the invaders can't stand it anymore and so they "abandon ship." The problem the invaders had in creating this mess, however, is that in order to make all of their lies believable they had to include truth midst all of the lies...the task is to sift the grains of truth from the lies and put them together to create a beautiful story about the truth of what powerful beings we really are just as we are, being descendants of gods.

Enki’s name holds the secret for what we need to do. Just as I have written a new story, so must we all. We must stop parroting the same old false stories, find the bits and pieces and put them together like a puzzle. The secret is that inside us (EN) is the key (KI) for doing just that.

We already have the gift of eternal life, as long as we don’t drift too far away from our true nature which is to love and be loved in return.

The above are links to my blogs. I did not know at the time of writing them, especially when I first began, that I was recording my Spiritual Journey of Ascension with Joe, who is my Twin Flame (which I also did not know when I began this journey, but I have provided undeniable evidence in my dissertation and much more evidence since writing it). All I knew when I began this journey after Joe’s death (by which I had been extremely traumatized) was that I was compelled to write the blogs, every day at first, and I seemed to have been getting instructions from Joe and from “Above.” I did not understand how the Celestial Spirits were guiding us along our journey nor the Power they have due to their Love connection to God (as Joe tells us over and over again in his work, there is nothing more powerful than love). My connection to Joe connected me powerfully to his love and to God’s Love, through the Holy Spirit. My experiences as recorded in the blogs proves what Joe has taught us about the power of love—over and over again (I’m a slow learner, for which I feel sad. I was totally asleep when I met Joe and did not even believe in soulmates. I hope you will not be as slow a learner as I have been). Nevertheless, what an amazing, beautiful journey it has been! It’s full of adventure, mystery, learning about the world, learning about our past, present and future, and engaging in super fun and sometime hilarious treasure hunts.

If you want to follow the path and connect to God’s amazing Love, begin reading at the first link 2009.05.03 and move forward. You will learn a lot!! I did. And there are millions of Celestial Spirits just waiting to serve as your personal teachers and guides. They want to take you treasure hunting (they do know where the treasures are) and guide you along your own personal path just like they did for me. I will not be writing any more blogs here because now I will be teaching Joe’s material “up above” and continuing along yet another amazing path. You can follow along the next leg of our journey by clicking on the links to the various courses, treasure hunt quests, etc.  We are creating multiple paths now in multiple directions. Are you ready?

There is something for everyone! All you need to do is engage sincerely with seeking knowledge and spreading love in the world, and then God’s magic will appear in your life too…no more suffering…only love, bliss, joy, passionate engagement with learning—for everyone, infinitely and eternally. God is Good!! Check it out! 20160227-1330 Rewards Of Developing My Will To Love

“As a child I wanted so desperately for magic to be real. I would work for hours collecting what I hoped were just the right combination of ingredients to make some type of magic potion that would provide me with special powers….I found such magic in words viewed in a postformal matrix and I observe and practice that magic everyday.” (Kincheloe, 2006, Reading, Writing, Thinking, p. 13)
