22 YEARS OF SHINING THROUGH AND BEYOND

I remember that is was after the Birthday Celebration of my Father that I sit in front of my Desktop Computer web weaving through the internet searching for a Group that will cater my ignorance about alternative Spirituality as I grow up as Catholic that been converted into the Bible Baptist Church. But before that day came, I already have conceived the Blessed Circle of the Almighty and practice secretly the knowledge that I learned from Web Weaving.

And on the 13th day of December Year 2000 at the height of turning of Age (which is the beginning of the Age of Aquarius) Luntiang Aghama was about to came out. Before forming Luntiang Aghama, i entered the Magick Circle of the Philippines at Clubs! Yahoo that later on it became the Yahoo Groups. But this group was stagnant by that time and the admins and moderator are seldom going online. And the only active posers in the group are the newbies like wiggling their hands in the water trying to float in the ocean even without the watch of a Licensed Life Guard.

So from that group I decided to form a Group that would cater support and guidance on the topic of Spiritual Development, Psychism, Magick and Alternative Religion. And successfully Clubs Yahoo Luntian was created. It was Leo Bhong Gabrielle Martines who become first member of Club Luntian by that time. And we exchange our knowledge on the mystical craft on developing Psychic abilities until we invite other people to join our Club.


I believe that Clubs! Yahoo were among the first Social Media platform that I’ve been with next is Friendster then Facebook. Then in August of 2001, the online group decided to meet up in person and off line. And it was at Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wild Life in Quezon City that we choose to meet up and became our Sanctuary in learning Magick.

It was with these people that we have developed our Study Guide in Psychism and through our Beloved Arwin Anat Santos (May his Soul always be Blessed) that I received a Hard Copy of Psychism Manual. From August 2001- April 2002 our small group conducts study and practice of Psychism.

After we finished taking up all the required subject we had a Final practice on Seance and Channeling that we went to an abandoned Place in Pasig City leaded by Ate Flora Chloe and there performed our last task on Psychism.

By that Time I am still a struggling Christian that the form of Magick that i practice was Christian Mysticism or Folk Catholicism that use latin prayers in casting spells. Though the knowledge of Psychism became handy as i use it in performing Divination as well as Diagnostic as an Alternative Medicine Practitioner.

From 2003-2006, we were active in providing Free Psychism Workshop to the Public and we Conduct it at the same venue at Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wild Life in Quezon City. By 2006, I have found Witch School International and took my formal Degree Study with them and luckily we were initiated as First Degree Wiccan Priest of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. Though the lessons were just a Year and a Day but it takes me years to apply for Initiation due to budgetary concerns. But for me it does not matter so much because what important to me is the work that I do is supported by my the Correllian Tradition. From my Ordination and Initiation, i have strengthened my Ministry on Peace Weaving e.i. in creating Vlogs in sharing practical tips on maintaining individual peace so as praying for the world. With my ordination I was able to become a Host on my own program that is The Peace Prayer Journey over the Imternational Pagan Radio and had a segmet at Correllian Family Hour with Lord Donald Lewis over the Pagan’s Tonigt Radio Network.

Though from 2006 i stopped doing public psychism workshop but instead at that time I focused on conducting research on Philippine Traditional and Indigenous Healing Practices. By 2008, i worked in a school and assessment center as TESDA certified and accredited trainer/ assessor in Massage Therapy NC2 and Hilot (Wellness Massage) NC2. As trainer and assessor on Massage Therapy and Hilot, we were able to conduct also Wellness Mission in reaching out people in the rural areas in providing Alternative Health Care services integrating it with Allopathic Health Care through the Medical Professionals we are integrating with.

It seems that the experiences that I have received are well guided by the Spirits that I am aware and learn from the unseen wisdom that the Divine is giving unto us. As I see that each soul is unique and each souls brings special Light to the world, and I am fortunate enough to be at service with these souls, that it fuels my light to shine on brightly!

Then on 2012, we have finally arrived through a strong desire to claim our rights as a Religious Organization that enshrines the Spirit within the body of human beings and taking care of it through Healing Work is a Divine Task and Mission that we have and with this, we have registered Luntiang Aghama Natural Divine Arts Shrine of Healing Inc. to be recognized by the Philippine Government through the Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC.

Though I’ll be honest with everyone, as Religious Corporation Sole or an Organization that been lead by one individual, I have no Idea how it works. Though the Spirit have guided me that sometime when we take our Journey of Ascension like going up to the peak of a certain mountain, people may not come with you in clearing the path going to the top. Even though it is difficult and somewhat dangerous, there must be someone who need to make the way so that people may reach on the top of the pinnacle or peak of the mountain.

Since no one have come up to the peak first, and no path has been made, I do the job of clearing the way. Even that I am alone in this path, I know that along the way help will come and fortunately through time, I meet people such as Lakay Magbaya, Lakan Abatal, and Dayang Alon who is now with me in this Journey.

The beginnings of Luntiang Aghama was dark and uncertain. It would be easier if we just carry on the torch of other who brings light to it. Such as just to subscribe on other works and teach it according to what they have prepared. But with us in Luntiang Aghama, we are all creating Brand New! and thankfully we have the Correllian Nativist Tradition that help us by guiding us on this process of recreating our Philippine Traditional and Indigenous Spirituality.
It was through the Teaching of Nativism and Correllian Shamanism that inspired me to dive in to the ocean of forgetfulness to recover the lost knowledge on Magick of our Filipino Ancestors. Thanks also to Hilot that become a doorway of the Past that we could resurrect the knowledge that have been buried long time ago that been covered up by the modern religion of Islam and Christianity. We are still thankful that there are still existing Tribes of Indigenous People who still remember their past and has the ability to tell the stories of their mothers and fathers on how they live their life before Missionaries came to convert them to the New Religion.

I thought before that the Old Filipino Gods are dead, but I was wrong when the Diwata themselves have called me to call on them. And it was the Diwatang Kilubansa- the Filipino God of Healing who reintroduce me to other Diwata.

HOW DO I MET DIWATANG KILUBANSA

It was on 2011, when I started to ask if Filipino have a God of Healing, because on other Culture and Tradition they have. Such as in Greek they have Asclepius son of Apollo (God of Light, Truth and Prophecy); so as in Egypt they have Heka as God of Magick and Medicine. Our neighboring country such as in China has Yao Wang which is a Healing God and King of Medicine. Each country and culture have their own God to call but as Filipino we call Foreign Gods that is not our own.

With that I went to use google and search for Filipino God of Healing and it was through the Website of Mysterio Delas Filipinas at Angelfire.com see Kilubansa as God of Healing and Father of Dihas who is the Goddess of Herbal Medicine. At that time there are not much information written about Kilubansa and Dihas. What I found was that they were a character in an Online Game that use to recover the power of the Gamer.

Some practitioners whom I consulted about if they have knowledge on Kilubansa suggest to dismiss the Idea of working with him as he was a creation of a thought form. Because I tried to search for other information about Kilubansa such as its Tribal Origin, Province where he come from so as the People who used to worship him and unfortunately I failed to find information. But this failure does not stop me in making connection to Kilubansa. Whether Kilubansa is just a thought form or a real Diwata that exist long time ago, I continue to feed the thought that Kilubansa is the God of Healing in the Philippines by communing with him. And amazingly, Kilubansa is responding by teaching his ways of Healing.

As of this moment, we have developed in his Honor the Kilubansa Healing System which has become a Divinatory and Diagnostic Method not only in providing cure to physical illness but also as a form of Geomancy that invokes healing of place and community.

From Kilubansa, he reintroduce me to Bathala and the Tagalog Pantheon on which the Diwatang Anangolay became my Gabay or Abyan and later on out of the desire to indigenize our Spiritual Practice came Mayari which replaces the word AMEN in our Spells and Prayers. At the present Moment Luntiang Aghama enshrines 47 sacred names coming from 47 indigenous tribes in the Philippines which we work out every month in reviving their worship.

And on the coming years we pray that we could interact with the indigenous community that we could revive the Glory of our Old Diwata.
