All Power ultimately originates in God and is good. All will eventually return to God and be good.
Power, can be distorted and man is the distorting lens. The endless perfection of the Divine Creation, is revealed in the beauty of the Cosmos, taken as a whole. Man, using the abundance of the Cosmos, produces civilisations and habitats that are less than perfect, as is self-evident. The task for mankind, for all time, has been to grow to produce a perfection worthy of his and her Creator.
The world into which men and women incarnate is perfect in its potential but imperfect in its actuality, because even the forces of nature are subject to mankind's rulership – for being made in the image of God, man is created just a little lower than the Elohim, or the Gods. This power men and women exercise, by virtue of their immortal souls, influences all aspects of nature, for good or ill.
We live in a world of naïve realism. In other words, reality – on a day to day basis – is is what we can see, touch, smell, taste and hear. But below the world of the senses, is a cryptic region – an underworld of powerful natural forces – that weaves our visible world in quantum silence. This world also has beings, including the nymphs, sylphs, salamanders and gnomes of the four elements. These cryptic beings are also known as Elementals and Elementaries. Like all of nature, they are subject to mankind's rule, eventually, and to his influence, always. All acts of individual men and women affect this realm, and can give to some of these hidden 'creatures' huge influence and power. When great wrongs are committed, the denizens of these cryptic realms gorge themselves on the horror and fear – they absorb it, because that is their nature. They are not evil per se, any more than an avalanche is evil. They just do what they do. They are part of nature. They can, however, have a powerful affect on mankind, and especially those who in any way, through hating or violent acts, link up with them.
Some of mankind, versed in dark arts seek to bend the will of these hidden creatures, to their will. By so doing, these men and women become enmeshed with the negative powers they seek to control, and find it next to impossible to break free. The illusion of great power over other men and women, plus the lust for blood, sex and possessions of all kinds, draws them further into the influence of those creatures they seek to control. This enmeshment has infected many aspects of human activity. It is as clear in the excesses of some religious movements and epochs, as well as the distortions of the institutions of finance, commerce and politics. As art always has to reveal some truth, aspects of this hidden world has always been illustrated in the monsters of myth and the symbols to be found in books and film.
The freeing of mankind from the Cell-Net of these hidden powers is the huge challenge of our age. Not to try, is to allow the lesser, essentially natural forces, to control mankind's future and would, without higher intervention, lead to destruction of life on this earth. These powers would only be doing what they have been directed to do. (They are no more evil than a typhoon or an earthquake is evil. But they are decidedly evil in their effects.)
Women and men who understand this hidden aspect of reality have worked tirelessly for generations to enable individuals and groups to free themselves from these nefarious powers. These groups within and outside religious and philosophical movements have always understood the nature of the challenge and have tended to avoid describing in too great detail the truly awful nature of the sub-human creatures distorted by mankind. It is clear that that era of deliberately not talking of these things is at an end.
A Note on the Archons
The word Archon means Lord or Ruler. In gnosticism (heavily influenced by the Christian commentators who saw it as heresy) the Archons are seen as sevenfold creators of manifested worlds. These worlds in themselves are under demonic power.
The higher teaching regarding the Archons, is more difficult to find. In this teaching the Archons are the Seven Spirits before the Throne. They are utterly good, with an emplacement above all the choirs of angels. They are the sevenfold creative powers summed up with these qualities: Piety, Knowledge, Counsel, Fortitude, Understanding, Wisdom, Reverential Awe.
It is not incorrect to use the word 'Archon' to denote the powerful occult complexes that 'rule' from the cryptic underworld. But these should not be confused with Eternal aspects of the Godhead.
The Goose Girl
Key slides from a talk are given below. Play them in order both to understand the story and to see what it means.
Each slide has a caption. Fairy Tales release their wisdom bit by bit. they have many layers of meaning. What is suggested below is one interpretation ... and of course it is not the only truth.
That said, The Goose Girl presents in vivid imagery the journey of the Soul from innocence, through forgetfulness, and back to realisation and finally transformation. It is one of the most profound wisdom tales in the Grimm collection.
The Guardian is a highly respected broadsheet newspaper in the UK. For generations it has been trusted as a fiercely independent voice for the centre-left and liberal viewpoints in the UK.
In the opinion of the writer this has changed relatively recently. Apparently the newspaper has been left in a difficult financial situation after the departure of its last long serving Editor in chief, and that may have influenced its ability to be truly independent.
The Guardian boosted its credibility (and probably its sales) with the relationship with Wikileaks and Julian Assange at the time of the Snowden revelations. Since then relationships appear to have soured.
Glenn Greenwald, in The Intercept (who also brokered and published Snowden's findings, writes a powerful piece demonstrating, he says, that the Guardian, through the voice of Ben Jacobs, their Washington Correspondent, has published Fake news, that has since gone viral, as it plays into the prejudices of those dismayed that Trump is now the US President elect.
Julian Assange is a deeply polarizing figure. Many admire him and many despise him (into which category one falls in any given year typically depends on one’s feelings about the subject of his most recent publication of leaked documents).
Greenwald provides detailed testimony to demonstrate that the Guardian article is simply erroneous. You can read the full article here (and are encouraged to do so). The original interview with Stefania Maurizi has been misrepresented, and she has tweeted that she is furious about this.
This propaganda battle over what is and is not fake news is of crucial importance at the moment - and it is essential to step outside the media bubble of only following the main stream media, to gain a perspective, resting on facts and not just opinion.
The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure set out to accomplish what the U.S. Congress had failed to do for forty-five years - seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time - evidence pointing toward an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.
Forty researchers along with military/agency/political persons of high rank and station came to the National Press Club in Washington, DC to testify to six former members of the United States Congress.
The main ballroom of the National Press Club was configured to resemble a Senate hearing room. There were press areas, an audience area, witness tables and committee tables. Protocols for congressional hearings were followed as closely as possible during the testimony. Committee members received written statements from witnesses, heard oral statements and asked whatever questions they wished about the subject matter at hand.
But earlier in 2001 ...
This was not the first time an attempt had been made to get the Main Stream Media to properly engage in this important topic. Dr. Stephen Greer had taken the National Press Club in Washington to present testimony from about 20 military and intelligence personnel with first hand experience.
"On Wednesday, May 9th, 2001, over twenty military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific witnesses came forward at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to establish the reality of UFOs or extraterrestrial vehicles, extraterrestrial life forms, and resulting advanced energy and propulsion technologies. The weight of this first-hand testimony, along with supporting government documentation and other evidence, [was designed] establish without any doubt the reality of these phenomena."
What actually happened was press and TV turned out in large numbers. The testimony of those involved was compelling (as you can see below). But the next day in the Press and on TV there was ...
... a profound silence. Even the holding of the event was hardly covered, and of the first hand testimony there was not a word. It was as though nothing had happened. Those involved were profoundly shocked and this fact alone caused many to realise that the Main Stream Media was now being controlled for various reasons and this story was one that would not be allowed to get out, for years.
Perhaps many who come to this blog will know for certain that there are no extra-terrestrial contacts with Earth and that the idea of a Secret Space Programme remaining secret is simply preposterous. But the evidence is now overwhelming if enough time is given to studying it, and the story is one of immense subtlety and deception involving many players over many decades.
The three day Citizen's Hearings mentioned above are an excellent starting point. It was set up and streamed live, in 2013, with retired Members of the US Congress taking the testimony. Watching them shift from careful scepticism to asking questions about how on earth this important information will be taken seriously by a deeply implicated government is in itself and extraordinary journey.

History starts with the Egyptians about 4,000 BC
Before that it is pre-history. The great civilisations of Egypt and Greece revered the Goddess in all her many forms. Joseph Cambell suggests that before these civilisations the Goddess ruled. Later religions (especially Judaism) tended to convert the Goddess into something fearful or evil (Lilith).
Around 400 CE the Academies and Mystery schools were closed by decree. The last of the great female mysteriarchs, Hypatia was slaughtered in a way most foul. The great old religion flowing continuously from Ancient Egypt and the Near East became 'paganism'. (Pagani = country dwellers). Thus the old religion was only honoured away from the cities and the word 'pagan' became a term of abuse.
In her imaginative book Mists of Avalon, Marion Bradley shows how the patriarchal religions had an impact on consciousness and an awareness of the 'Goddess' gradually withdrew and was lost.
The journey deep into materialism had begun, with all its ramifications in the etheric and astral realms.
How should we understand The Goddess and Goddesses?
The Goddess is NOT a person
Goddesses are not and never have been people.
Goddesses are aspects of Pure Divinity
They are multiple emanations of the One Godhead beyond all Division.
They do not evolve, essentially unborn They ever are
They do not die and Their every act is loving perfection.
They have never left mankind
Mankind has forgotten Them.
They are Infinite Perfections
Unblemished repositories of Joy and Light.
In their Motherhood
They are our Mothers.
In their Maidenhood
Lies their purity and our hope of a return to Perfection.
In their sexuality they make Creation fecund with infinite possibility
Ensuring the perfect weaving of reality on the loom of life.
They have NO FORM
Their true names are HIDDEN
In their Infinite Darkness the One Light Shines Eternally
They are unshakable Law
They are our True Home.

We have heard recently a lot about Fake News. Hillary Clinton, speaking for the first time since aknowledging Trump had beaten her, suggested that such fake stories, on right wing Internet sourced sites, had defeated her.
In another blog at another time we will look at the role of Operation Mockingbird (used by the CIA) to place assets at senior positions in key media in the USA to ensure certains stories were covered in certain ways. Suffice to say here there is a litany of examples where the Main Stream Media ahve presented erroneous stories as 'truth'.
The example of the Anthrax threat presnted at the UN, and the 45 Minute nuclear holocaust threat put through loudspeakers by the UK tabloid press, allowed the UK and the USA to go to war with Iraq based on what is now quite clear was lies and deception.
With the Fourth Estate failing in its democratic duty so spectacularly, it is not surprising that the gap has been filled with enterprising journalists. Some, like Max Keiser with his quirky investigation of all things economic, have huge followings (on air he said 22 million views) which far exceed NBC, ABC and similar.
In our Alt Media section that you can find here, you will see a presentation of alternative news sources that the current writer has found informative and illuminating. We will update the videos on that page, regularly, so that it will be kept up to date with the most interesting presentations.

What ascends and how?
Man (men and women) incarnates (is born) in a body on earth. Once he passes beyond an entirely natural life, at one with the animal kingdom, a deep yearning may arise, to pass beyond the boundaries of earthly life, and return from whence he came. This happens, even if the memory of that Edenic place is vague. When such an awakening occurs, a flame is ignited within a woman or a man, that can never be extinguished. The things of this world don't fully satisfy any more. The path of return is the only path that provides real peace.
Tales of heaven, sacred gardens, angelic realms, the courts of Jove, the Grail, each speak of a state of being far removed from time and space; beyond a world of scarcity, pain and death. It is natural that the chance to 'ascend' from down here to up there, appeals to many who hear of that possibility, whether within a religious context or without. Mighty Norse warriors would happily die on the field of battle to obtain Valhalla, even as a Buddhist priest might set himself alight to free his country and achieve Nirvana.
The questions arise: what ascends and how does the ascent take place?
What is Ascension?
What does ascension mean? Since before the millennium the new spirituality has spoken of a coming time, often relating to the Mayan Calendar, when humanity or part of humanity would ascend.
If indeed there is ascension, and if it has been foreseen over hundreds if not thousands of years, then the ancient wisdom will also have a part to play in explaining what will or may happen, as well as the emerging understanding as we move further into 2012.
The Christian story, which contains profound echoes of other earlier traditions, provides clues as does the understanding of the Ancient Egyptians, the Greeks and their academies and mystery schools.
If Life is a Dream according to Rules, (as Hinduism suggests - see letter here) and if consciousness shapes the Dream, then what is taken into consciousness becomes important. We have seen in earlier letters that the Mundane World is an effect, it arises through the interplay of Soul, Nature and Matter. We have also seen how the ‘bad guys’ have used the malleability of consciousness to produce Mundi, or Hell on Earth and how most of us are trapped legally and psychically in this prison of false ideas.
Which brings us to Tradition. Tradition relates to that that is passed over, given from one generation to the next. We have family traditions, tribal traditions, institutional traditions, national traditions, religious traditions and so on. If a tradition is true, resting on the Ageless Wisdom and in accord with Divine Law, then the civilisations that enjoy being within that tradition flourish, and the souls within that culture can unfold their powers in a healthy way.
But traditions can be corrupted, as ours have on earth. When truth is mixed with falsehood, it becomes a dangerous commodity.
There have always been those who have been custodians of the streams of truth. Some we know (Plato for example) and some are more hidden (Hermes Trismagistus) or have had their teachings subverted (Jesus the Christ). The work of purifying tradition and enabling others to discern truth from error is noble and important work. Much of the true tradition has been woven into stories and mythologies, so Fairy Tales and Mythology contain profound truths that have been largely lost to the knowledge currently taught in schools.
The work of purifying traditions is of great importance. To do this the Principles that determine the way Truth flows through time has to be understood. At the founding of systems of knowledge are individuals who received what they transmitted through Inspiration or Revelation. (See earlier letter on this important topic here.) Initially the Knowledge is passed on with little error. As the Message becomes elaborated, the principles become unfolded and a deeper understanding can emerge. But at the same time error can enter, and gradually the stream of tradition may become corrupted.
In some instances great effort has been made to corrupt important traditions, adding spurious elements, pretending the symbolic is the same as the historical, leaving out vital components.
This appears to have occurred in the three Great Religions of the Book with much historical material simply being erroneous, and the Scriptures being altered in ways both subtle and unsubtle to achieve ends far less than ideal.
As those ideas go deep into the collective psyche, the Dream becomes influenced. The ability to ascend in consciousness may be deeply compromised.
There is much evidence now that – what for a better word can be called – the Dark Tradition uses both aspects of the Great Religions, the design of cities and the Mass Media to promote their agenda. The work of David Ovason is very relevant in this context.
Click on the Youtube video below for a fascinating and detailed (long!) review of this area.
Finding a trustworthy source of Tradition becomes vital. such streams exist, in the experience of the current writer, though they must be sought for with a little diligence. The Key to knowing the stream is its universality and its accordance with what is universally acknowledged as The Good Law.
Manipulating the Dream
Gradually, the black magicians, have learned to manipulate the dream to create a world based on false principles and illusion. Although everything is a Dream, within the dream things are real, not illusory, if in accord with Divine Law.
But if the Universal Divine Law can be corrupted, then a false reality can be temporarily established. That is what has happened. The history of how is emerging in many places now, but is best mapped by Frank's work.
The concept of Mundi is of great importance here.
Remember, in the last letter we wrote of "order arising from chaos". This is a false idea resting on deliberately changing the meaning of chaos. This apparently simple change gives rise to the need to have disorder, so that something better can arise from it. And this is the justification for war and conquest. It is the justification for using state power. The idea of the barbarians at our gates - now we call them terrorists - has been used for centuries, to keep populations in line. The 'ordinary people' are seen as a huge threat to the status quo - because they are chaotic - and must be controlled.
This control has been achieved in many ways, but primarily by presenting falsehood as truth.
Divide and conquer
In the last 1000 years, there has been a quite deliberate policy of divide and conquer. The splitting of Protestant from Catholic was stage managed by the Venetians, who had learned to make money from lending to both sides in a war. It may apply to the splitting off of the Orthodox Church too, as Church history has been manipulated and falsified, it is hard to know for sure.
Constantine (and his wonderful mother Helena), produced a unified realm following the teachings of the one we remember now as Jesus (Yehusiah). This vast territory was deliberately broken up and its story changed. This is a subject for another time. The real history of the Hellenic people's and Greece, was changed.
By corrupting language it is possible to deeply corrupt thought. By corrupting thought, the nature of reality is subtly shifted. What we believe is true and act on as though it is true becomes true, at least for a time.
The most corrupting language is English. It is also the most magical ... of use for doing 'magic'. This is because many English words have double meanings that contradict each other. The language that used to be spoken in England was Anglaise, a form of French. English was introduced during Henry VIII's reign and through Shakespeare, who gave English 20,000 new words. ALL the words ending in -ment, like government, environment, establishment, acknowledgement, relate to the Latin mentis or mind. They are, in essence, all about mind control. Words with the same letters (or sound) at the beginning and end often have a further esoteric meaning. For example 'church' is ch-ur-ch, and implies the ur is bounded. There are many other examples Frank uses. Even the word 'soul' was chosen in contrast to the Greek pyche, because it is close to the word 'soil' and implies dirt, being 'fallen' and 'sullied'. In this subtle way, language has been used to enslave us in a nightmare.
And there is more. Certain powerful ideas, like the 'Fall' of man through the action of Eve leading to 'original sin' have been used to enslave mankind quite literally. So deeply has this gone into our thinking, that it underpins almost all law. In court, we are not live persons, but things (big topic - but true). Another idea is the absurdity of atheism, leading to huge amounts of nonsense in current science, cosmology and ethics.
The Power of the Mind Virus
But it gets worse. When people die, they are still 'within' their lower mind with all it's misunderstandings and false or falsified, memories. This lower mind needs to make the transition to join the Higher Mind, the journey through the tunnel. Then many of the limitations of the life and understanding are overcome, with the greater perspective of the higher self. If this transition is not made, then the lower mind remains in a distracted and confused ghost state. It is not part of the real world, the 'real dream'. It is in an in-between state of unreality. From this state it gets less and less understanding, and gradually fades. This is the reason certain places are haunted, or feel weird.
Various groups have used various means to create vast numbers of ghosts. Violent death in war, horrific events before dying, torture, deliberately encouraging false beliefs* all work in this dark way. The vast slaughter of WWI and WWII was designed in part to surround our globe with 'lost spirits' so that the changes we are experiencing now would be prevented. Many were burned alive, an offering to Moloch (Ba'al).
*belief is another powerful corrupting word, as is faith.
Belief has the words belie within it, and lie. To belie is to mislead. Getting the 'faithful' to 'believe' impossible things, impossible because they break Divine law, causes a Mundi mind set.
Faith, has 'fae' inside it, relating to fairy land and illusion. So both words have their opposite hidden within them.
A false idea, contributing to the power of Mundi to enslave minds, can be called a Mind Virus. These false ideas get passed from mind to mind, and incorporated into educational systems, so they become 'The Truth'. So many ideas that swirl around the TV stations, newspapers and textbooks, that are 'self evidently true' are simply not. Watching the American presidency play out in its shambles and lies, is a current example.
So, in summary, Mundi is a false 'reality' that appears real, but is in fact hell. It is a product of evil minds deliberately misleading. (Even the idea of Hell is a mind virus. It was used in part to damage the word Hellenic and the name Helen. It cannot, under Divine Law, have a final reality, or One-Heaven has to be divided against itself. That cannot be sustained, and since 2012, has ceased to be so, even in 'unreality'
Because human beings have souls and minds, they are a creative force in the world. This creativity can be used for good or ill.
Hinduism teaches as a central principle, that all existence is in a dream, with the Divine Creator as the Dreamer. But as we ALL have a Supra-conscious Divine Mind, 'above' our higher self, we are creators too. We therefore participate in AND influence the dream. In this way we are co-creators. Any well informed and organised group, sharing and projecting a world view, will begin to see that created around them.
This word has been corrupted.
Its original meaning was much closer to the philosophical concept of the Void, the Vast Chasm or Primordial Abyss. It means 'Nothing' rather than a mess. The Word Cosmos means Order; so Chaos, in this context is before Order is applied. It is a state of being entirely beyond thought (which requires Order).
Chaos originally did not mean disorder or confusion . That is a deliberate falsehood, and it sets up a false dichotomy: "out of chaos arises order". That idea in itself is a 'mind virus' that can lead to confusion in thought.
In the second century CE, a great mind arose called Baba Rabban, a priest of Ba'al, who produced religious writings formalising the dualistic teachings of Manes (Persian dualism). He developed the first Talmud and also a secret language to use magically, called Ebri. We know it as Hebrew. Notice this is around 270AD or CE.
This powerful stream of thought became a dark tradition where the idea of enslaving others has been seen as God's will (another name for Ba'al is Gad). So the God being referred to is essentially a god of the underworld.
Now the story becomes even stranger. You will have heard of the Greys. These are extra terrestrial beings in origin who have been involved in Earth history since the beginning (they are not the only ones ... some good, some not). The Greys as the current writer understands it, are self conscious, but in some way lack a Soul. Their mind is a 'hive mind'. They lack human feelings or empathy, but are very clever. They have played with our genetics. But, in so doing they produced a species that went far beyond them in potential. This event(s) is reflected in the Bible stories as well as other scriptures.
Through the followers of the tradition of Baba Rabban, who can be traced through history, these Greys have been influential in the background. Those who made a pact with them (a pact with the 'devil') achieved certain powers, BUT had to sacrifice their children (give them over to this hive mind).
This has led to three levels of human being: at the top are those who see themselves as gods amongst men - the Bra-men. They believe utterly in their right to rule. The Royal Families appear to believe they belong to this group.
The next level is the Hu-men. These, through study and discipline win the right to serve the first group. They are considered human, but must obey the Bra-men. The leaders in this group know they are worshipping Ba'al. They may believe they are worshipping Lucifer. In the present day, some simply believe they have found the key to power and worship that. Many names we know fall into this group, celebrities and politicians and business people.
Below these are the rest of us, the Ahu-man. The other two groups believe they have an absolute right to enslave this group by whatever means works. Unlike the Roman system there is no way to get your freedom, no 'manumission'.
The trick has been to enslave the rest of us without our realising it.
This is where Mundi (finally) comes in: this will be the subject of the next letter.
This important topic may take more than one letter. Understanding Mundi is essential to grasping what is going on in the world currently.
The Mundane has an everyday meaning of 'ordinary', 'commonplace' or even 'boring'. This is not how the term is used here. This idea comes from Ideal Philosophy. It refers to the world we live in as well as the material cosmos we are part of. It is people as well as trees, and animals as well as planets. It includes all nations and societies. It also includes hidden aspects, not known to current science, the etheric and astral realms. Everything technological is in the Mundane, as are all the arts.
The Mundane arises from three major principles:
Each of the terms above deserve several letters of their own, but we will offer a simplified explanation here. I hope it makes enough sense.
It is useful to see Soul as twofold, World Soul (Dionysus in the Hellenic System) and individual human Soul. In a sense, individual souls spring from World Soul (one meaning of Dionysus being torn apart ... there are others).
World Soul and individual souls have a ruling and creative aspect. They bring worlds into being. They are, from one point of view, the activity of the Divine in the realm of matter.
For anything to 'be' in the world, for it to have reality - to be real rather than unreal - there needs to be three aspects:
a material aspect (stuff as the Germans say), matter. This is sometimes called prime matter. In and of itself it has no qualities at all. It is before there are atoms. You cannot see it.
A life aspect that vivifies, animates or moves. Because for any material object to be, and to have reality, requires life; everything, without exception is alive.
A Soul or form aspect, that is the creative power making one thing a rose and another thing a dog. Their abstract form is different. (The doctrine of Forms, as you know, relates to the Master Plato!)
So the Mundane World results from these three fundamental causes in this model. (Other models also may work, but will have to provide adequate answers as to how things in reality arise.)
This leads to the conclusion that this Mundane World is one of effects. The causes arise at a 'higher' level.
There is one other point to make before moving on to Mundi.
When Nature and Matter are considered without Soul, you get the creation of the Cryptic (Greek Word) realm. This is a realm of natural forces and powers that 'underpins' reality. It is a life realm (all the power of Nature, and the Life spirits). This is the realm of gnomes and elves, fairies and salamanders. It is where ghosts find themselves. From within the Mundane realm this cryptic world is unreal. But within its borders, this cryptic realm is real enough to have consequences. This is why playing with 'the occult' is so dangerous.
Mundi is a term Frank O'Collins has developed. It does not contradict the above but has a different emphasis. It is referenced in the idea of axis mundi the World Tree, and the phrase sic transit gloria mundi (thus passes the glory pop the world).
Individually we are a plurality as well as a unity. This is true of us as Souls, that have many levels and spheres, as well as the mind ... as we have seen already. It is also true of our personality. This is far from being one 'thing'.
It is a common teaching in many esoteric systems that we have three fundamental powers, each has its own path. These powers are thinking (mind), feeling (heart) and willing (will). The last of these (will) is the least studied by psychologists.
A simple experiment.
If someone takes a piece of paper and writes the answer to the question "What do I want?" giving a fresh answer each time, a long list results, with answers ranging from "an ice cream", "a large house of my own", "a fulfilling marriage", "to see India", "to see my daughter settled", and so on. We can generate many answers if we do not censor... and it is an interesting experiment to do. More difficult is to narrow the long list to ten and then five prime wishes. That involves choosing.
When I was training in Psychosynthesis, we did this, and then five people sat around us, reading the wishes out. We sat in the middle, eyes closed, listening.
The experience was excruciating... uncomfortable. This is because the wishes are often mutually incompatible as they stand. And hearing them read is like being within one's own mind when it's in a spin.
Each of these wishes, the five or the ten or more, spring from a different sub-personality. If you play with this you can find quite distinct 'beings' inside that have their own way of thinking, have characteristic feelings and different motivations.
Part of emotional maturity I believe, is recognising this reality at least in outline. Then we know with some impulses that arise they are just a sub-personality ... not central to who we are. A 'part of us' not our core. We gradually recognise these parts. When we do, we get choice. We can decide to act in accord with a fragment of who we are, or we can choose not to.
Powerful sub-personalities that have dominated parts of our lives often have their root in childhood and interactions with our parents and siblings. We may find that they exert far too much sway in our life. Gradually we can recognise this, and so choose otherwise. Of course if the pattern is deep and if it relates to what felt at the age of - say - six, to be a life and death matter, then detaching from it can prove difficult.
Managing who we are, elegantly, is a life skill that never really is finished with, as, at each stage of our life we are faced with different challenges.
Finding how to respond to these in real time is not easy for anyone. Placing our consciousness at Soul level ... aligning with our higher self ... certainly helps. Indeed it really only is from that level we act as a unity rather than a part.
Just a little thought experiment.
What if every single thought we had was creative? It would follow that this might well be so if the basic building blocks of reality are 'awareness' rather than unconscious matter.
And what if the Universal Awareness – if we can call it that – was for ever striving to put any conscious intention into effect. Then it would mean that the reality around us was, in some way under Divine and Natural Law, modifiable according to the thoughts that we hold.
Another thought experiment
What if every thought we had was received clearly by those close to us? Would we modify the way we think if we knew that those who connected with us could also hear those thoughts? If we are correct that the fundamental nature of All-That-Is is Awareness, then to some degree at least, those around us do pick up on our thoughts, even if they cannot register those thoughts telepathically.
Émile Coué , the French psychologist, suggested we should repeat the phrase “Every day in every way things are getting better and better”. Of course such a phrase may indeed set some people’s teeth on edge and invite the question, “What about the people currently being bombed in (enter the name of war torn city of your choice)”?
It is not the purpose of this thought experiment to answer the question “Why do bad things happen to good people?" That has been a challenge to theologians since a dinosaur ate its first philosopher. Rather the question is, do our thoughts impact on our reality?
Well, we can quickly establish that our thoughts do impact on our inner reality. Our nervousness before going on stage, or to the dentist, is entirely constructed within our imagination. When I was training in psychotherapy, someone valuably suggested to me that fear and excitement have much the same chemical signature in the body. So instead of saying to myself “I am frightened” if I was to say “I am excited” the result would be rather different. And that is demonstrable.
A well chosen phrase, that is meaningful to us, and is repeated inwardly (or out loud) at certain points of the day, becomes a gentle reminder to the universe that we are taking responsibility. Our own inner universe hears the words we use and we may expect that the outer universe does too.
Does this mean that we can and should affirm a bigger car or a greater salary? Well we could, but we remain under Divine and Natural Law, and whatever we seek to draw towards us will manifest according to those Laws. If you have never read the supernatural tale, The Monkey’s Paw, then here is a link. It perhaps is the quintessential story to illustrate the enigma of being careful what you wish for.
The first step in using affirmations is to become a little more conscious of the continuous chatter inside our own heads. If we find we are verbalising negativity about ourselves, or others, we can only change this when we become conscious that this is what we are actually doing. When we do so, we can then replace the negative thought with one that is more positive.
The second step is to choose a time to quite clearly formulate the affirmations we are using. Something that can be done anytime is often never done at all. Dawn and dusk are especially good times as our consciousness has a particular quality as the night becomes day and as the evening slips back into night-time.
The way we craft the words are important to. Using an “I” statement is helpful. Here is a traditional formulation from Buddhism:
I take refuge in the Buddha
I take refuge in the Dharma
I take refuge in the Sangha
The Dharma is the moral law or wisdom; the Sangha is the fraternity of monks or of enlightened souls. The beauty of this affirmation is its universality. It is not demanding something specific of the universe, but rather trusting the universe to provide, nourish and protect.
Here are a few affirmations.
I have been given endless talents which I begin to utilize today.
I am courageous and I stand up for myself.
(These first two are from Dr. Carmen Harra.)
Let my inner wisdom be my guide
May compassion fill me
I am increasingly aware of my Guardian Angel
Finding your own affirmations can be a rewarding experience. But choose carefully!
Intuition literally means 'inner teaching'
This word is often misused, to be the same as 'instinct' or 'hunch'.
In Ideal Philosophy Intuition is situated above Reason, In the Platonic scheme it is far above what he calls Doxastic learning, which is no higher than opinion and guesswork. Intuitions are of wholenesses of truth; and they are never personal as such (ie limited in scope to only the person).
Inspiration is a less misused word, and literally means breathing in of breath or the spirit. Inspiration is from the Divine, and comes through the agency of the Muses (in the Hellenic Scheme of Sacred Philosophy). It cannot be commanded but can, with one who dedicates their work to the highest, be encouraged. It heightens all art in all spheres, raising it above the mundane.
Revelation is almost completely misunderstood in our era, and few would suggest in polite society that it happens. Yet, under normal circumstances all individuals receive revelations; the Still Small Voice is there for all of us. Again, it cannot be commanded, but it comes, for individuals and for groups. Apollonic revelation would be different to Dionysic, Athena's revelations would differ from those of Artemis. All are from the One Divine.
Revelations for eras and for the world are of course much more rare. They register in history. Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, all were such recipients. This is true even though much they received has been adulterated (altered and not in a good way).
It is worth wondering, if an individual received a revelation today, for the world, how would they promulgate (deliver it to people) it? How would its revelatory nature be recognised?
No true revelation ever contradicts the essential truth of a previous (Divine) revelation.
It is my conclusion that we receive insights and teachings from our Higher Self (Super-conscious) through Intuition. These essentially formless truths gather form as they enter our psychological space (the Intra-conscious) and we receive them as impressions, images, feelings, ideas.
The sub-conscious also impacts on our consciousness through feelings, impulses, images and ideas, but these are intensely personal. Or they are earth bound.
Two individuals can communicate directly through their Higher Selves, but may not realise that is happening, unless they listen inwardly, and without expectation. This - it seems to me - is communication in Soul Language.
As it is true to say "the mind touches what it thinks of" they can communicate in their current consciousness when apart. This skill can be developed.
If connected in some way, benignly, impersonally or malignly, they can communicate to the degree of their 'distance' from one another. This is easy for people in the same room. It is inevitable for family members, ex marriage partners, close friends, in proportion to the intensity of their relationship, past or present. This communication is via their sub-conscious, and we can certainly learn to 'pick it up' - via our inter-conscious. It affects us whether we consciously register it or not. The effects can be a blessing or a curse.
It is my belief that when two people have loved, and sealed that love with love-making that is at all levels of their being, then the connections are opened at all levels also: sub-conscious, conscious and super-conscious. This type of connection entirely transcends separation in space, and to some degree, separation in time. I think it is how two souls find one another again, in this universe of ours ... that is, after all, constructed of awareness.
All times are not equal. The Cosmic cycles seen from the turning of the Galaxy through to the rhythmic opening and closing of certain flowers responding to the sun, reveal different phases.
The seasons have varying qualities, as do times of the day. And within these regular rhythms, the activities of mankind (women and men) play out with their own beginning, middles and ends. Certain points in the day allow closer contact with the Divine - with dawn and eventide being of particular importance.
In a way much more real than most people realise, ('old') time came to an end in 2012. The Mayan Calendar was accurate in that.
But of course, January 1st 2013 came and went, and we are all still here. One of the reasons that events currently have a flavour of unreality is that we are applying ideas relevant to a past age on one whose spiritual nature is completely different. The media, and those who are - in current jargon - unawake, are not registering the difference. They are bemused how the American Election, the perpetual Middle East Wars and the sabre rattling with Russia goes on and on. These things do not really make sense.
Greece's suffering and the absurdity of Brexit are two more examples of things happening now, out of correct time.
In actual fact we are now living in a time of real enlightenment. Those of us who know within the reality of the spiritual realms - who have known it all their life - know that we are approaching a threshold that once crossed will change everything.
The Wingmakers' Story, suggests a Central Race from near our Galaxy's Central Sun, are as the Shining Ones to us. They are - in some sense - our future. But they are intervening now to help us awaken to what our true potential is. This story may be simply that - an intriguing myth - or it may be in many ways true. In order for this to make sense we will have to allow ideas into our minds that are quite challenging. But without those ideas what is coming, inevitably, will not make sense.
Managing the way through this change will be of great importance for all those who perceive its significance.
Rhory and an Egyptian priestess upset 5,000 years of planning by the children of Set ...
When a teenage priestess, living 5,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt, connects with Rhory, an English schoolboy visiting the British Museum, she puts herself and him in grave danger.
The link they forge through the pathways of time is noticed.
She must escape the murderous followers of the God Set, and Rhory is hunted by their modern counterparts, the nefarious Society of Secrets.
Events are occurring very rapidly.
Careful reading around the news and on the Internet will reveal the 'status quo' is shifting. The financial structures of the last 300 years or so are being challenged and proving to be paper tigers. The tottering financial situation, the drums of distant wars, whistleblower revelations, and the crisis of many forced to be refugees, suggest current power structures are cracking.
Delphi was the place in Ancient Greece where kings and individuals would go to seek advice from the oracle at times of great change or challenge. When they entered, the message that confronted them was Man, Know Thyself.
In a trance the priestesses dedicated to this prophetic work, would become the mouthpiece of Apollo. What was said often had ambiguity, because truth has a paradoxical mode when it is dealing with individual and group destiny.
There is much we can learn from how the Ancients, in their wisdom, saw the world, for our civilisation is based on the great traditions they laid down. This site is dedicated to wisdom old and new. Too much of the new age teachings offered in books and on the web is taken in blind faith. And too many of these teachings are ignored entirely by the main stream. Here we will avoid being too credulous but will also offer for our readers a selection of the most interesting sign-post channellings and interviews, as well as reflections on how Ancient Wisdom is vital to an understanding of current events.
