To be able to connect with your spiritual self requires a quiet mind and the ability to be able to maintain the stillness long enough for the spiritual essence to filter through from the deeper levels and impact upon the conscious mind in the form of spiritual guidance. Learning to connect with the divine part of yourself, commonly called the Higher Self, the Energy Parent or the Christ Consciousness within, and learning to live this as an expression of life is one of the most important tasks for this time on our planet.
We are going through vast changes as we move out of one great age and begin to embrace the energies of another. There is a Great Unknowable Source from which all things have proceeded, be they human, animal, vegetable or mineral, be they in this Solar System or another and the most common term that we know for this Source is God, Mother/Father God, the Creator, the Infinite One, the Infinite Knower, Universal Mind or Universal Energy. The ancient cultures were aware of the masculine and feminine qualities that existed in the Godhead but divided them into archetypal forms and personalized them such as the Egyptian and Roman deities and the Greek and Indian gods and goddesses.
In all the Scriptures of the world, this Source has been personalized for ease of understanding. And because the side of it that we are aware of most of all, is active, powerful, knowledgeable and present everywhere, we have come to know it as our heavenly Father. You have become individual because the Creator has individualized Himself/Herself in you; thus you reveal the life of the Creator in the bodily state, although this is usually submerged by the current personality, unless you have activated your chakra system and become aware of your own inherent spiritual energies. But your mortal sense will blind you to this truth if you look without instead of looking within. Everything you need is within you.
You are all sons and daughters of the Most High, your spiritual self is asleep within you, and as you enter into communication with your Energy Parent, this is the attitude you should take in with you: a son or a daughter approaching your Energy Parent, the heavenly Father/Mother within you. Approach the deeper, subtle, parts of yourself in a loving manner. All you have to do then, is wait, resting in the energies your have invoked in Communion. Your spiritual self will then awaken, and all you have to do is torest in the energies and be aware of any information you may receive.Your Spiritual Self
What does it mean to be enlightened? Firstly, let me say that something that is of a finite nature cannot understand something that is infinite. According to science, the earth was formed approximately 4.6 billion years ago; about 4 billion years ago the earth had no oxygen and no protective ozone layer and may have been bombarded by meteorites. About 1 billion years ago the planet started to cool and violent storms raged for thousands of years allowing the formation of oceans. The formation of algae photosynthesized to produce oxygen and to help form the protective ozone layer. Approximately 500million years ago plant life and trees appeared and produced even more oxygen; eventually approximately 120 million years ago the dinosaurs and more advanced plant life developed. 65 million years ago it is believed that a huge meteorite hit the planet destroying all life forms. Scientifically it is believed that the first human type beings came onto the planet approximately 1.7 million years ago.
Just as dreams can be interpreted in many different ways until one learns how to interpret them symbolically, so too can the Scriptures be interpreted as a dream and unless one is able to grasp the meaning of the symbols, allegories, myths and parables contained in the information, it will remain like many of our dreams, non-understandable to the conscious mind. Scripture is really about initiation and it was used to illustrate this point many thousands of years ago and it is still being used to illustrate this point today even though it may seem contradictory and nonunderstandable if one does not take the necessary time to learn its secrets. Scripture, no matter from what system, can be read as a practical textbook once the symbology is understood but few people have taken the trouble to gain this understanding or don’t know how to obtain the information.
If we take a passage from Scripture.. “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not made anything that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” This holds a very deep metaphysical key relating to the spoken word materialising—practical Kabbalah.
In order to find out what this “word” means we need to go back to the Greek. In the Greek it means Logos. The translators of this text could have used the term “expression” instead of “word”. Metaphysically, Logos means channel. Now just suppose the translators used the word “expression” instead of just “word” – we will find that it changes the whole meaning of the text and may read something like this:
In the beginning was the Logos and the Logos was God expressing himself. This same expression was in the beginning with God. And everything that was made was made out of this expression of God as he channelled it through himself. And this expression of God is life. And the life in man is only because God is expressing himself in him. And if any man recognizes the light within himself he becomes enlightened because he recognizes that God is expressing himself in him. This is what it means to be enlightened. Those who make this discovery realize themselves to be sons and daughters of God. Those who don’t discover this live in darkness.
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 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.
These two universal fundamentals, cycling and function, are totally integrated one with the other. Much richness of understanding follows from a deeper appreciation of these aspects of the universe controlling, as they do, each person’s existence in this incarnate form.
Every part of this whole universe cycles; not only does the whole universe cycle, not only does the planet cycle, but every tiny particle cycles. Look for the patterns; always patterning. Obviously mankind, or shall we say one man in his passage through the incarnate years also undergoes that breathing process, that cycling. Birth is the beginning of that overall cycling which, of course, ends with withdrawal or what you refer to as death. Incorporated in that overall cycling are many sub-cycles.
For optimum health, and to conform to universality, each one of the bodies of humankind must cycle. It is so designed that during daylight, waking hours the physical body cycles. Many people are not particularly at their best upon wakening; as the hours pass they feel better and better reaching a peak somewhere about the midday point, and beginning to decline in the late afternoon. This is the physical cycle, and as each of you are aware, very often the withdrawal of the physical occurs when the physical body is not at its peak.
In the late afternoon, as the physical body declines, the etheric body begins to cycle, prior to the decline of the physical, and it reaches its peak late in the evening. The etheric body declines and reaches nadir during the early hours of the morning, during which period the emotional/mental body has cycled, and it reaches its peak in the early hours of the morning, perhaps four or five o’clock. These are sub-cycles and are incorporated in a periodic cycle that occupies many days. During the period of approximately a month a person will experience a peak period, which of course, depends upon several factors. He will also experience down turns occurring at approximately monthly intervals.
Again, this cycling is incorporated in spaces of years; it is popularly supposed that man changes every seven years, this is not so. Within each entity there is a fluctuation by which is meant a rise to a peak and a withdrawal, and another rise to a peak and a withdrawal, but the time period varies greatly from person to person. The age of each of those cycles is between five and ten years.
Consider the fact that the cycling rule or law, is imperative; it applies to every particle of this universe. It is inevitable; it has to happen. Consider, then, on this meditative return path, that there must also be a cycling, there must be an overall cycling and there must be cycles within cycles. This does not mean that you will be able to meditate successfully at one period, and unable at another. Rather, there will be great progress at one period and lesser progress at others.
Meditative paths often seem difficult but this is because of the cycling inherent in incarnate living, relative to your function whilst on the Earth Plane. Some experience what humanly would be called troubles. They are of course, not; they are purely inherent principles of that cycling that contain opportunities to cleanse, clear and heal on all levels of being before being able to move into new spiritual dimensions.

Did you know that stess and negative emotions such as anger, frustration, criticism anxiety and depression are caused by disruptions in the body’s flow of electro-magnetic energy? We are electro-magnetic beings. We have a north pole and a south pole clarified by a set of positive force centres and a set of negative force centres; so we are similar to a battery, and if one pole is out of balance – then the whole four-fold body system is also out of balance. Many forms of stress can be drastically reduced, simply by using techniques that balance the major force centers of the body. Ten minutes, three times a day is all you will need to achieve a state of lasting emotional balance.
Most people who have never practiced meditation, struggle to control their stress and thought processes. When things go wrong, instead of looking at the situation as the ancient peoples did, as an opportunity for growth and new experiences, people will automatically begin to think the worst. The negative thought process becomes a pattern that is then hard to break. As the thoughts whirl around in the mind ceaselessly, anxiety begins to build up and some begin to feel quite stressed or even depressed. Others begin to act in an angry manner or become critical of those close to them.
If the stress becomes prolonged, some will try to relieve it by artificial means such as smoking, drinking, overeating or some form of medication. These habits can become very unhealthy over a period of time; not only for the person indulging in them, but for those family members or friends who are closest to them.
If any of these things are happening to you right now, have you tried techniques to relax or release those unhealthy emotions such as exercise counseling or medication but not got all the results you hoped for? Some of these methods can produce temporary relief. But quite often the symptoms of stress and negative emotions come back again when you stop the therapy. They come back because the root cause has not been discovered and dealt with.
When you know the real cause of your negative emotions like stress, anxiety and frustration, you will be one step closer to letting them go consistently and feeling fit and healthy once more. You are primarily an emotional being, and because when some of these emotions have come up in the past, and because you didn’t like feeling like that, you probably pushed them right back down again. Now imagine what happens if you put some dirty washing in the clothesbasket. It falls to the bottom – not a problem.
You keep throwing more in and it gets a bit full, so you empty it and do the dirty washing. This keeps the clothesbasket free. But imagine what happens when you keep putting it in and don’t empty it – eventually it all spills over. This is what happens to your emotional body. Energy won’t be repressed. It will come up to the surface to be dealt with – cleared away. But if you keep pushing it down, eventually it will spill over and you’ll feel agitated and get angry and frustrated. If you keep pushing your anger and frustration down, you’ll end up having a panic attack because the energy is trapped; it can’t move. This is a signal from your subconscious self to look at what you are pushing down, acknowledge it, and deal with it. When an emotion comes up that you don’t want to deal with, realize that it is just a form of energy bringing something to your attention so you can deal with it and clear it. The easiest way to do this is to tell yourself that it is just a certain energy vibrating at a specific frequency that we call anger, or frustration and so on.
Stop what you are doing, and feel the energy. Where is it stuck in your body? Sit still and meditate on this feeling; feel it as intensely as you can; watch it. As you begin to focus on it, it will begin to change and feel smaller or not so intense, then it will start to move. Allow it to move down your body and out of your feet and into the earth. The earth will take this negatively charged energy and convert it to a more useful form. You will know if you have done this exercise correctly because when it moves out of your body, your feet will tingle. This will take approximately ten minutes to complete.
Relax then and imagine the sun has come down out of the sky and is gently filling your body up with soothing liquid light to restore the harmony. Then come back to normal consciousness, feeling wide awake, refreshed and alert. For more—visit us on Etsy.
Do you know how to develop your intuition? Intuition is a natural faculty that anyone can learn to tap into. However, it does take some time and effort to become accurate at it. But practice makes perfect! The more you use your intuition, the easier it becomes to trust what is coming through. Basically, you just have to trust what impressions you are receiving to allow your intuition to work for you. But you do need discernment as to whether you can trust your intuition. It may be coming from your own brain centres.
You can check your intuition simply by asking the question; “Is this coming from my Higher Self? The Higher Self is always steady, patient and will get you to your correct answer. If the information is coming from the emotional level, it may appear to be either hesitant or unsure or give you the information too quickly and then fade out. The Higher Self will still be there, and you will feel steady and feel that this is right for you. However, if you would like to develop this natural ability even further, you will find some tips below.
There are various meditation techniques available today; it is just a matter of finding one that suits your temperament. Relaxation is a natural side effect of meditating, and is a good way to start to prepare for the development of intuition. When you are relaxed and the mind is quiet, it is easier for intuitive impressions to impact upon your consciousness.
2. Remain in a positive state of mind
When you can free yourself from the stresses of everyday living, and take the time to become relaxed and quiet, that will do much to improve your intuitive ability. By staying positive, you attract positive streams of energy making it so much easier to intuit events.
3. Learn to listen to the inner voice
If you are on the brink of making an important decision, release, relax and let go of all inhibitions, and head to quiet, peaceful surroundings where you can tune in and listen to the still, small voice within you; that voice is always there – but it won’t be apparent until you still your mind and emotions.
4. Allow some time
After releasing all those things that stop you from thinking and feeling clearly, allow some time for your intuition to filter through to your conscious mind. It is like stirring up a muddy pond—you have to wait till the sediment settles before you can see the bottom clearly. Give it a little time then….Bam!…. now you have your answer.
5. You can’t be intuitive and sad at the same time
Happiness attracts immense power and part of that power includes intuition. In learning to increase your awareness to develop your intuitive skills, your motivation must be selfless but positive. Natural gifts like intuition, if abused by trying to find numbers for lotto or such like, will always be counter productive to your highest good.
Intuition, in most circumstances is extremely helpful, because sometimes it leads you in a direction that could not be found otherwise. A lot of lives have been saved by intuition alone. Help has seemingly come out of nowhere because someone used their intuition, and instead of the person being led on a wild goosed chase, they actually discovered someone badly in need of help at an accident scene or they were able to help someone find the right way because they followed an intuitive hunch to go to a certain place. Decisions are made easier if you are armed with this gift. Develop intuition now by lots of practice and reap benefits you have only ever dreamed about. It can also be fun while learning how to develop your intuition.

It’s incredible just how quickly this year seems to have passed. Due to the number of enquiries I’ve had, I’ve decided to present the magazine, Esoteric Meditation, in a new format. Without our readers, of course, it would not make any sense to continue publishing such information as we have in this exclusive magazine. But as you all seem to love the contents—absolutely no fluff—just pure metaphysics—we will continue to put it out there, but with a big difference!
As I do get a lot of emails asking questions about the concepts, I have decided to include a “Letters to the Editor” section where you can ask questions relative to the content of the magazine. Privacy will be maintained and only your first name or initials will be displayed. However, because of space, I will be limiting the number of questions answered.
The magazine has now been divided into two sections. The first part for Mystics, which will cover the softer side of metaphysics, and the second part for Adepts, which will contain the in-depth esoteric side of metaphysics for those wanting to know the deepest mysteries.
I would suggest that you start at the beginning of the magazine, go through the Mystic section, and read the information contained there. Some articles in the Mystic section may be explained more fully in the advanced Adept section.
I’ve also included a section on crystals, spells, anti-ageing, and questions and answers.
We do hope you enjoy reading this issue of Esoteric Meditation on and behalf of the team here at eM we wish you all a Merry Christmas and Yule Blessings,
Unfortunately, due to other commitments and a heavy work load, we are no longer producing the monthly digital magazine.
The July edition of eM is available now on the App Store.
ESOTERIC MEDITATION is a monthly digital magazine that gives insights into the vicissitudes of life from a profound metaphysical viewpoint. If you are searching for the deeper meaning of life, or more advanced esoteric topics not generally given to the public such as ancient wisdom that was taught in the Mystery Schools of old you will find it here.
History relates many instances of people being influenced by dreams, hunches, or indefinite urges. How often hunches obeyed have prevented tragedies, no one knows, because the human tendency is to forget. Nor does anyone know how many hunches disobeyed have led to disastrous consequences, because there may have been no one left to tell the story. One man obeyed his hunch and may have averted a terrible disaster one spring morning, when he and his family were living on a farm in South West Queensland with the nearest neighbour miles away. Read his story in the Intuitive Self in this issue.
Explore your Search for Happiness is a great article that will disscuss how happiness, defined by some as gratification of the body, is a driving force of humanity. You will also find the next part of The Knight in You a progressive story and a great video meditation training session on the Transmission of Light!
This Issue is a mystical exploration of the soul and your mystical self.
We are also looking for contributers so if you would like to write an article please submit your work for approval with our editor at firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately, due to our busy work load, we are no longer producing the monthly digital magazine.
Our first $7 ebooks are now available on the Etsy Store. An in depth read on the importance of relaxation to the spiritual path that will change the way you view meditation and self expression.

This book will tell you what is possible, describe how stress affects you, then give you various exercises to assist you to relax. Each exercise will help you to relax further and gain a greater understanding of why relation is such an important part of being yourself.
