Communion with Your Higher Self

Higher Self Energy Parent

Communion with your Higher Self or what we have come to know as the Energy Parent, or the Holy Christ Self is not practiced in today’s world. There is a Great Unknowable Source from which all things have proceeded, be they animal, vegetable or mineral, be they in this Solar System or another and the most common term for this source is God. In Scripture, this Source has been personalized for ease of understanding. And because the side of it with which we are most familiar is active, powerful, knowledgeable and present everywhere, we have come to know it as our Heavenly Father. The more subtle aspects relating to the heavenly Mother, such as intuition, nurturing, compassion, kindness, mercy, caring, and so on have often been overlooked.

Words like “In Him we live and move and have our being,” maybe be familiar to you if you have read Scripture. You are because God is; there is no separation except in your conscious mind. You have become an individual because the Father/Mother has been individualized in you; thus you reveal the life of the deity at the materialistic level. Your mortal sense and personality blinds you to this truth at the moment because you are more than likely used to looking without instead of looking within. There is no separation between you or me or those who have left the physical body. We are all connected at the deeper levels, but fear puts up  a barrier. Fear exists only in your mind it is not a reality; it is of your own creation by your reaction to the outer, while not knowing the inner. Fear is only fantasizing about something that might happen when you are focused outwardly. When you are attuned inwardly, there is no fear, there is only love or aspects of the energy of love; Love is an attribute of God, one of the four divine qualities that go to make up the name of God. But if you have locked God out of your life by letting in fear, how can you know love? You are all sons and daughters of the Most High, you have the ability to channel the Christ Consciousness, and as you enter into Communion, this is the attitude you should take in with you; a son or a daughter approaching the Energy Parent, the heavenly Father/Mother within you. This connection will open your chakras and allow your awareness to operate at a different level and will guide you to experience a deeper level of meditation. Your relationships will improve, and you will experience a deeper sense of peace.

The heavenly Mother within you is represented in Scripture as the World Mother or Cosmic Feminine Principle or Holy Virgin, the Holy Spirit. The allegories tell of the outgoing of the soul, the emergence into matter, or “the fall”, and the grief and subjection which she therefore brings upon herself. This phase is, in Genesis, represented by Eve. The second condition is that of her restoration, her restitution. This phase is represented for us in the Christian mysteries under the name of Mary. Her emergence from matter and glorification in “heaven” is represented in the Christian Mysteries as the woman in Revelation with a crown of twelve stars upon her head and the moon under her feet. But she will always be travailing in pain until the birthing of the Christ consciousness in humanity is complete.

The initial state symbolizes the present status of humanity; the latter signifies its future attainment. If you tune into the deeper parts of yourself and discover the love that resides there, you will be able to enter into the kingdom of heaven that resides inside you. This is not so difficult. First of all you must cast off all limitations, all jealousies, all antagonisms, all ideas that lead to separation, all that hinders the true expression of the Father/Mother, the Energy Parent that lives inside you. If you would look into your mind you would see the thoughts, images and ideas, the conflicts, the sorrows, the depressions you create. All these limitations manifest in your mind only through not understanding the truth. Allow these limitations that burden you to drop from you at once. You can do this in the blinking of an eye – if you choose to – it is your choice; and then you will find yourself in heaven. Heaven is a state of consciousness, not a place. Thus you bring heaven with you when you clear your minds of all limitations. But in doing this, do not regard the work that is done as the greatest, but the love in which it is performed.

Refrain from thinking, “I have done this; I have built that; I have created this; I have created that; I have healed this person; I have helped that one.” No one creates or heals anything or anyone separate from God, for it is God that gave you the power to do so. There is no outside of God. Even the Master said: “I of myself do nothing, but the Father within me, he doeth the work.”

Therefore learn to recognize that the source of power is love; the “x” factor in healing is love and it only comes through the Christ consciousness that you activate within you; recognize then, the love by which it is performed. Then be conscious of the Christ consciousness that channels through your heart and you will be conscious of ever fresh unfoldment. You will see, hear and know the creative power of the Spirit of God personified in the Christ consciousness within you.

Real Prayer

Real prayer is deep earnestness; it has great attractive power and being in earnest prayer, means being in communion with the Father/Mother, the Energy Parent through the divinity that resides within you, the Christ consciousness. So before you lay hands on another, in earnest prayer, you may request something to the effect of “Lord, I have prepared myself by clearing my thoughts and emotional body. Use me as a channel to help this one. Let your love and your healing come through me to assist this one.” And as you hold the love in your heart, you will feel it start to flow. Perhaps then you will understand the words of the Master when he said, “Even as ye do it unto the least of my brethren, so do ye do it unto me.” We are all one, what you do to or for another, you also do for yourself in both the positive and the negative sense.

Remove the mask of the personality; it binds you to the world of illusion. Unfortunately, so many are still dwelling on the personality of Jesus, with the result that they fail to see the eternal Christ in all. The Christ consciousness is a universal principle. The forgiveness of God is spontaneous and instantaneously blots out all error by the inflow of His Everlasting Love. Do not hinder the gifts of the Spirit then, by regrets, sadness or remorse, but open your heart so that the love can flow into it and be made manifest in the flesh. If you are sad, or in remorse, having regrets, your mind is filled with illusory shadows, but when the love of God fills you, there is no room for shadows, they melt away to be replaced by peace and understanding.And so, as you commune, do so earnestly, asking forgiveness for any error and forgiving those who have a grievance against you. Become reconciled in your heart with them; then your Energy Parent will hear you. For in your heart is the key to the entrance of your heavenly Father’s house. It is the dragon of the personality self that stops you from entering. The only way to enter, of course is through communion with your Higher Self.

Music That Heals

canstockphoto4742593There are various things that you can achieve with your inner vision, as there are no limitations to this psychic faculty. A world of marvellous phenomena awaits you—if you take the time to relax, and just listen to soothing, relaxing music; for it is also music that heals. You can discover how your inner vision works as you watch the marvellous geometric shapes formed by the music start to appear before your mind’s eye.

Do you know the latest discoveries of the effects of music on the physical body? Soothing, relaxing music helps the body to de-stress; allows your breathing to become slower and deeper, and allows emotional blockages to drain away. It can stimulate the production of endorphins leaving you happy and peaceful. After a while, your psychic centres will begin to respond and you will become increasingly aware of some of them as they pulse in time to the music. They will also begin to take on beautiful shapes and colours but you will probably only observe this when you are in an altered state of consciousness.

Sometimes the music will immediately put you into such a relaxed state that you will automatically slip into an altered state of consciousness. This is where it can become really interesting because you will start to see the sounds coming forward as multicoloured geometrical shapes; some squares, some triangles some circles, some vortices and some really odd shapes. They will burst forward into full shape and iridescent colour, then fade and die away as the notes change as others begin to take their place.

To reap the full benefit of this activity, you need slow classical music. Once you allow the inherent psychic ability to develop fully, you can experiment with different types of music for totally different results. But it is the classical music that heals.

What Are Chakras?

canstockphoto8817732The human body is a marvellous vehicle for housing many subtle bodies. Some of these subtle bodies contain chakras or force centres, which can also be felt in the physical body, but only observed in certain subtle bodies. The easiest subtle body to observe the chakra system is in the etheric body as it overlaps into the astral body. In the physical body we can feel the pulse of the chakra system in the spine, and other locations of the chakras.

Special centres from where groups of sensory motor nerves arise are situated in the spinal column. The energy from these nerves pervades the entire body to rejuvenate it with the vital life force. The nerve centres are connected with seven centres of vital energy in the body called force centres or chakras. Some modern writers have identified the subtle spinal channels of Ida, Pingala and Sushumna as the spinal cord with the sympathetic nerve chains, and the chakras or force centres as the nerve centres or plexi of the body.

This is not quite correct, as these structures are not perceived without special meditation techniques, neither can their activity be equated with their physical structure. It is rather like the filaments of an electric light bulb that uses a material wire circuit, but the bulb does not light up until the electricity flows through it.

When the luminescent current of the vital life force flows through the nerve centres of the body, in association with the endocrine glands, they become luminous to the subtle sight, and shine with exquisite, colours that adopt a circular shape. Most illustrations of these force centres in the body are shown depicted in symbolical pictorial shapes such as spheres, vortices and wheels. They do, in fact, resemble these actual shapes, but since they are not physical objects, it is not possible to give a standard, exact description. Many people describe these chakras in different ways for this very reason.

 

What is a Mystery School?

canstockphoto2759900Most people have never heard of a mystery school, but love a good mystery, as it is stimulating to the brain centres; those communities of intelligence that inhabit the physical brain. One indication of this fact is the tremendous sale of novels that deal with mystery, fantasy or science fiction, and lately the books on spiritual mysteries. Believe it or not, detective stories the best sellers of fiction. This is not particularly a present-day tendency. The great mysteries of literature have continued to be popular since their original writing. Today, even Sherlock Holmes has been modernized and made into a film.

In the last fifty years or so there has been a literal explosion of knowledge on the planet, and of course, this has created even more mysteries. Not all of these mysteries are solved in the mind of every adult. The mystery is enhanced when no one is able to give a better explanation than his own. Mystery, then, has its appeal because it is applicable to the unknown. It is not so much the particular manifestation that is of concern as it is the occurrence of something completely unknown. Man seeks an explanation for those things that are not understood, and he tries to change the unknown into the known. The instinct of curiosity becomes stimulated when he is approached or brought face to face with any kind of unknown.

In the early history of humanity, the philosophies and religions of many races and groups of people became closely related to the great mysteries of birth, life, and death, and life after death. That was the last of these great mysteries to solve: Why was it that life could cease as suddenly as it had begun insofar as this physical manifestation was concerned? What happens after we pass through the veil? Many religions in their doctrines and practices are closely related to the mysteries of birth, life, and death, but have no answers as to what happens after death.

Also, we see God’s handiwork in the heavens. Just how vast is the universe? How many other universes are there? It was from the contemplation of these great mysteries that groups of individuals who studied them from the philosophical and religious approach began to set up schools of thought known as mystery schools. These schools were closed to all but the true seeker of wisdom and truth.

From them, in turn have sprung the philosophies, philosophical schools, and much of the foundation of the science of the present day. In the philosophy and religion of humans to date, however, the final solutions to these mysteries have not yet been written. But our great thinkers and scientists are getting much closer to amazing discoveries all the time.

When humans no longer contemplate the unknown, when all that is now unknown is known, then humanity will have advanced to a different level of comprehension and development and will live in a different dimension. Until that state is reached, much that is still a mystery will remain a mystery to the ordinary person, perhaps not the thinker, though.

When man sees clearly the solution to these problems, he will have advanced to a point where possibly other mysteries will take the place of those that he now endeavors to solve. And so he will continue in his growth by solving one mystery after another until the mystery of the Logos becomes comprehensible and he is actually absorbed as a part thereof, and becomes one with the source of his being.

The mystery schools are formed to teach the ancient wisdom in a more modern format to those who seek answers about life’s mysteries. Some subjects relate to meditation, the force centres or chakras, symbolism, karma, reincarnation, how the Logos projects out of itself into physical incarnation. There are hundreds of subjects of deep intrigue taught in the mystery schools of today. The Sirian Mystery School, part of the College of Esoteric Education, offers a variety of practical courses to assist those who seek the deeper meaning of life.
