The snow months were again back in the Palouse, and so vortex gifting was put on hold until February. Georg, who has done so much with orgonite in South Africa, had several years earlier invited me to visit. It came to me that now was the time to take him up on it.
Winter had seemingly left the Palouse hills towards the end of February and, with it, some of Laozu’s immediate responsibilities. It seemed the right time to accept Georg Ritschl’s long-standing invitation to visit Africa and attempt to open a positive canopy on that continent.
So with Georg’s encouragement and kind invitation he traveled to Johannesburg, and the work was begun the next day.
For about five days Georg drove him about the greater Johannesburg-Pretoria area and suburbs, gifting dormant vortices, and at the end of that period a positive canopy of qi was present over the region.
The most interesting vortex they found however, was not one of the type described here before. They stopped at a gem store northeast of Joburg and the owner told them of a vortex some Peruvian shamans had reported being stronger than anything they had seen in Peru. He wrote some directions on a map, and Georg and Laozu found what they think was the place. It was up in a natural amphitheater on a mountain in the Magaliesberg range. There was already a swirl of qi around the amphitheater (clockwise looking down at it), but it did not feel good under the ground. While they were resting after the climb, high-level assistance came to direct Laozu to place the TBs in the proper places. Directly Georg remarked on the increase of “energy” at the site.
However there was still quite a bunch of negative entities about, and more help came to assist with their disposal.
Typically, when a vortex is stimulated with TBs, a swirl of positive qi rises into the air spiraling up. With this vortex, at least while Georg and Laozu were present after the gifting, positive qi poured out of the sky above into the ground near the center of the amphitheater–but not spiraling. The shape of the space in which the qi was pouring down was conical, but the sides were steeper than the cone of the up-spiraling qi of a normal vortex.
The pair intends to return after it stabilizes in a week or so, for further observation.
This was indeed a quite unusual vortex, as we found driving down from the north from Zimbabwe about a week and a half later.
A canopy of positive qi having manifested itself over the Johannisburg metorpolitan area, it became necessary to undertake a more extensive journey.
Georg told Laozu of his earlier busting expedition up into Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia), and particulary of his memorable experiences at the grave of Cecil Rhodes in the Motopos hills and the Great Zimbabwe ruins not far from the city of Masvingo. He suggested a vortex hunt which would include those areas. Laozu concurred, and so Georg planned a route, roughly the shape of a parallelogram, which would stretch from Joburg north and west to the Botswana border at Lobatse; thence north and south through the Botswanan capital Gaborone, through Francistown up to the Zimbabwe border south of Bulawayo; thence east to Masvingo; and thence south and west across the South African border through Messina and Nystrom back into Johannisburg. The width of the parallelogram would be about 300 kilometers and the height about 800, covering an area of about 80,000 square miles. The plan was to create a string of opened vortices, about 30 miles apart, circling the area, which would exend the positive canopy over the whole region.
Laozu thought it a good plan, and so they set out. The vortices were too many to describe here, and so Laozu will only write of the more memorable ones. They did pass the Magaliesburg vortex (mentioned above on the first leg of the journey), and found it operating much as before, except a bit stronger.
One vortex some way after that was situated on a high hill in the bush on private property. Laozu had just clmbed over a locked gate when the owner of the farm drove up. Fortunately the farmer and his wife were very gracious, unlocked the gate so Georg could drive Tata II (Georg’s pickup) onto his property closer to the hill, and left the key with Laozu and Georg to lock the gate when they left later. This was somehow characteristic of the trip to come, in the kind treatment they were to receive throughout the trip (with exception of the Zimbabwean borders).
In this first leg of the trip the vortices generally required more effort to reach since the country was hilly and vortices tend to be on hills when such are present on the landscape. Georg however, perhaps from his many missions gifting towers, has a gift for driving where he wants to go, and that saved considerable time. One of the high points, from Laozu’s point of view, was meeting with a Kudo in the bush hiking in to one vortex. The pair crossed the South Africa/Boswana border about dark, and passed the first night in a motel on the Botswana side.
In general Georg and Laozu made good time throught Botswana. The terrain was somewhat more level and it was often possible to find vortices closer to the highway. And when the pair had to leave the main road, there was often a farm road with an unlocked gate.
The people in Botswana were friendly, and seemed to be on the way up economically. The capital Gaborone was busy and growing. Somewhat north of that city there was a vortex on a hill not far from the road, but the place was gated and fenced. Georg and Laozu drove in and found workers ready to go out into the fields. It was a Government farm, and strictly vistors were not allowed there, but Georg spoke with several of the workers about the vortex mission, and a couple of those who seemed to have more responsibility than the others told him that he and Laozu could climb up the hill. It turned out that the vortex was not far up the hill, and upon return, a number of those still at the living quarters in the farm curiously came out to see the pair. Georg explained about what orgonite does, gave one of the men a TB, and soon most of them wanted TBs. There were not enough for everyone, but quite a few got them. It was marvelous to see how accepting they were of the concept.
The last vortex we gifted in the evening was out in the bush, but there was a nice open flat space and Georg and Laozu decided to use the good weather and camp out. It hat been raining off and on since Laozu’s arrival and only that day had he weather been really fine. Georg cooked a good dinner over the cook stove and set up the tent. Laozu tried to start a fire, but the wood was too wet so Georg poured on a little diesel and the two enjoyed a campfire into the evening. Just before bedtime the wind came up a bit and a thunder and lightning storm blew up off to the south, where the gifted vortices were strung out. After enjoying the spectacle for an hour or so, the two jumped into their sleeping bags and Laozu (at least) fell asleep immediately. Sometime later he was awakened by the tent blowing and the sound of heavy rain drops. Gradually it turned into a downpour, and by morning water was under and in the tent, and in the sleeping bags. The dirt road out was a mess, and Georg had to walk to the highway for help, and fortunately found a couple in a 4X4 who came to try to pull us in. But the 4x4 almost got stuck. After an amount of digging (with a TB trowel) and various unsuccessful muddy expedients, more people showed up with a regular shovel. About five huskies (including Georg) lifted the left rear quarter of the pickup off the ground so that tree branches could be thrown under the wheel, and eventually we got out and back to the road. The rest of the day it rained, but we managed to get our gifts placed (though in one cornfield Laozu had to wade in up to his knees). The day was concluded by a three hour border crossing into Zimbabwe. The Botswana side was no problem, but the Zimbabwe side was bad.
Georg had to undergo most of the trouble, so it will be left up to him to discuss it elsewhere if he chooses. One of the problems was the currency. Inflation was so bad that Georg had to pay 482,000 Zimbabwe dollars just to purchase obligitory highway insurance. And the exchange did not even issure the actual currency – just checks for the currency, checks which had already exprired formally at the end of 2005.
Not far from the border the pair found a motel to stay the night, and try to dry a few clothes.
I neglected to mention that several years earlier in Georg had given a CB to a man in rural Zimbabwe, and that we drove in to visit him and inspect the CB. Due to the muddy road, we could not drive all the way, but had to walk the last half mile or so. When we got to the place, the man was not there, and the residence seemed abandoned. But the CB was still there, and even protected by a small fence, and was working quite well. Quite inspiring.
The next morning it was drizzling as Georg drove into the Matopos hills. The first lengthy stop was the huge rock formation which holds the graves of Cecil John Rhodes and his henchman Leander Starr Jameson. Several years ago Georg had made friends with a noted Matebele rainmaker in he area, and in the pickup was a CB which was intended for the man. Luckily one of the attenents at the grave-rock knew the man. He told us that the man had died but agreed to take us to his widow, and to his successor, late in the afternoon. Laozu found that part of the trip quite interesting, but will leave it up to Georg to tell what he thinks is appropriate.
The rain and wind had turned stormy, and the guide-gatekeepers were more than willing to let Georg and Laozu climb up to the graves themselves, and indeed they had the place to themselves. Georg had gifted the place when he had visited before with TBs, but this time, with no observers, the two were able to secrete an HHG quite close to the grave. Laozu noticed that there were two qi lines crossing over he rock. One, a positive one, passed close by Jameson’s grave. The other, a negative one, came from a sort of valley in the distance, but crossed the first twenty meters or so from Rhodes’ grave. Laozu also noted than there was a dormant vortex not too far away in the hills.
After descending the grave rock, the two went to an inconspicuouis place on he negative line where there was sufficient soil to bury a ring to 6 TBs and so change the character of the line to positive.
After getting permission from the caretakers to roam in the hills, the two headed off for the vortex. This was on the top of a hill some distance away, and Laozu found it most interesting. For he top of the hill was ringed by a circle of rocks which made it look like a fortification or a ceremonial place. And indeed after the vortex was gifted, the two were visited by a high-level positive entity who inspired Laozu to do some cleaning of the place. Afterwards the pair slogged back to the pickup through the high wet vegetation. While Georg drove off to get a room for the night at the Motopos Hills Lodge, Laozu went up to the grave site again to check on the status of the treated line which had been negative. It was now positive, and Laozu returned to the shed where the ticket sellers stayed and had a chance to look at photographs there of Rhodes, Jameson, and Beit. Upon Georg’s return, the guide who was to lead to the rainmaker’s place came, and the three set off through muddy dirt roads and over dam spillways, where in the rain, the dam overflow was several inches deep flowing over the road. Laozu was glad it was Georg at the wheel instead of himself, and was impressed with his driving under those conditions.
The route was retraced in the dark and the two spent the night at the Lodge. There was water leaking in from outside onto the floors, and no running cold water, since the pipes leading from the dam had broken. But the electricity was working and so the pair’s wet clothes could be dried by a small electric heater in the place.
Next day was the one day spent sightseeing on the trip, visiting cave paintings, a museum, and places of qi interest. After another night without running water, the pair headed east toward the Great Zimbabwe Ruins.
With all the rain, the rivers through that part of Zimbabwe had water, and Georg made sure they(as well as whatever towers had not been gifted before) got TBs. Gifting was good and the two reached the town of Masvingo by nightfall. On one of the vortex hills, Laozu was accosted by a couple of illegal gold miners demanding to know what he was doing up there. And so Laozu explained about orgonite and qi coming up through the ground. They remained suspicious, but one of them led Laozu up a path to the top of the hill, and after Laozu planted the TBs, the miners became more friendly, and by the time the foot of the hill was reached, they had showed Laozu some of the gold they had mined. They received a TB for their house after getting back to the pickup.
Next morning they drove to the Great Ruins and were accompanied by an engaging guide who told them much about the history and former uses of the ruins. Their name “Zimbabwe” was adopted by the blacks as the new name for their country after they took over political control of Rhodesia. “Zi” means “great”, “mbab” means “house”, and “hwe” means “stone”.
And there was a great stone house on top of a steep hill, the stones being granite blocks, partly hewn, and partly broken by heating and cracking. The ascent was quite interesting, designed so that any unwanted visitors could quite easily be disposed of by dropping rocks or shooting with arrows. There was a cave with acoustics such that words spoken there could be heard down on the the plain below the hill. In that cave were two entities, one quite happy and the other quite sad–the guide explained that the place had been used for ceremonial purposes.
From there the three climbed up to the higher place on the hill, where public dances and cermonies had been performed in front of the kings in times past. As Laozu recalls, the place had been used for such purposes from the 12th to the the early 16th century. There was a high concave rock, near to the king’s seat, where a strong positive entity still lingered. It reminded Laozu of the being in the old monastery ruins on Heiligenberg in Heidelberg which Cesco and he had seen last summer. It was easy to see why that hill had been picked for the Great Zimbabwe.
Later they came to another part of the ruins down on the plain, surrounded by a great circular wall. Georg had told Laozu that there was something special about the place, and indeed there was a vortex there. By that time, the guide had developed sufficient confidence in Georg and Laozu that he permitted them to gift it. Georg said he would have been surprised if there had not been a vortex there.
It was afternoon by the time they left the ruins, and just managed to reach the South African border by nightfall. Again there was trouble “jumping through the hoops” on the Zimbabwe side, but it was not so bad as entering the country had been.
On the road south from the border to Pretoria most of the towers had been previously gifted by Georg, so attention was mostly concentrated on vortices.
In Botswana and Zimbabwe gates into rangeland had been mostly unlocked, and fences had been low enough to climb easily. This was not the case in South Africa. Especially difficult were the high game fences, often ten feet tall with barbed wire and hogwire on one side, and sometimes electrified on the back. When confronted with these latter, Laozu either looked for vortices elsewhere or asked permission. On one occasion when permission was requested, it was refused on the grounds there was a tiger inside.
The vortex hunters were fortunate however, being given permission sufficiently often, and finding non-game fences sufficently often, that vortices were reached with the necessary frequency to successfully complete the circuit.
Driving south Laozu could observe that the positive canopy had already spread along their previous route three hundred kilometers to the west. Turning his attention to the far south, he became aware of a large swirl of positive qi far to the southwest. He could feel that qi was dropping downward into the swirl, but rather than depleting the positive qi above, the positive qi seemed to be stronger there than elsewhere. Georg had a GPS device, by the aid of which, it was determined that direction of this positive swirl was quite close to that of the Magaliesberg vortex mentioned above. The closer the two traveled to Pretoria, the more they became convinced that it was the Magaliesberg vortex.
I was able to confirm this about a week later when I was in the vicinity of that vortex again.
Somewhere between 150 to 200 kilometers from the Pretoria/Johannisburg area they drove under the edge of the positive canopy. Laozu found it unusual that the canopy had spread so far north from the vortices originally opened, which were the source of that part of the canopy. He speculates that the special Magaliesberg vortex, visible from so far away, may be some part of the reason.
After coming under the canopy, it was no longer necessary to gift vortices with such frequency as before, and the pair reached home not long after dark.
Georg was ill when we returned, and the severity of the illness seemed greater the next day. He in fact was suffering throughout the remainder of my stay, and when I returned home to the Palouse, I came down with apparently the same thing. At first I suspected malaria, but later it seemed that tick fever may have been the culprit, for I did get quite a few tick bites climbing about through the bush. At any event, due to his illness and the many duties which had piled up for him during our trip north, Georg decided to stay home for a few days.
During the last part of his stay in South Africa, Laozu borrowed Georg’s TATA II pickup and set off to the south, to extend the positive canopy parallelogram further. It now covers an area approximately 300 km by 1250 km. The corners of the parallelogram are roughly Bulawayo (Zimbabwe) in the NW, Masvingo (Zimbabwe) in the NE, Bloemfontein (South Africa) in the SE, and Kimberly (South Africa) in the SW. I say “roughly” because the canopy actually extends a bit further.
On the way back Laozu drove through the town Magaliesburg again and verified that the vortex which had been so conspicuous on the way down from Zimbabwe was indeed the Magaliesburg vortex. It was still the case that qi was pouring down straight into the vortex, but rather than sucking all of the POR out of the area, paradoxically the area was much more positive than usual. It had actually spread south to the town of Kuruman before Laozu came upon it coming north.
About a hundred kilometers south of Kuruman Laozu found another unusual vortex. It was almost as if a number of vortices were together, for, instead of there being only one place to gift, there were a number of them, and after Laozu gifted one, the resultant expansion of the canopy covered about 80 kilometers in the period of one night.
The only place Laozu was accosted by authority on the trip was by a couple of private patrolmen on the Harmony Gold Mine (owned by the Oppenheimers I believe) not far from the town of Welcom. The soil there was pretty bad. Laozu had to scrub his trowel hard the next day to clean it.
When they learned Laozu was on his way out, they lost interest and drove on.
Laozu owes thanks to Georg and family for putting him up at their place in Jo-burg, for furnishing transportation and guidance, and for the excellent TBs used on the long gifting circuit.
Regarding the return of the qi from the canopy to the earth in South Africa:
Before Laozu returned from South Africa, he observed the tree tops to see if qi had begun to enter the tips from above. In Germany in August of 2005 the process had begun in less than two weeks, in Japan in September/October it had begun in a similar time period, and in Taiwan in November it had actually begun more rapidly.
But in South Africa, after three weeks, it had begun only slightly or not at all. Laozu has been thinking about what might have caused or influenced the delay.
It is possible that it might be the large Magaliesberg vortex, where so much positive qi seems to pour straight down into the vortex. This vortex has also caused positive qi to have traveled much further out from the group of vortices than usual.
The vortex may have introduced a dynamic into the area which is not present elsewhere.
Georg kept a record of the vortices gifted during Laozu’s visit, and pinpointed them on a map. I colored the map with organge to show my educated guess of the canopy’s location at the time I left southern Africa.
