Duality-Sexual Alchemy Part 2

6. At this point it is time for him to slack off and forget about romance for awhile. He should just enjoy her company and share social activities with her. They are going to have a child together.
Sensual pursuits are fun. As he turns the power down she relaxes and they both turn to a life of total hedonism and enjoyment. She enjoys his company and needs his energy but only a little at a time.

After a while she craves larger and larger doses of his raw energy. She learns how to deal with it effectively. It begins to give her power and energy and she can return some of it back to him in a new form.

7. He thinks seriously about forming a permanent relationship with her. He pours his energy and vigor out to her with an intensity that borders on insanity because it is so strong.
As she receives his energy she becomes completely self-centered. This is the only way she can effectively direct the forces he is generating. She has to be in total control, there can be no weakness. She uses her will to focus his energy toward those things she desires.

8. As she takes total control he begins to suspect she doesn’t love him, that she is just using him to get what she wants. What about the things he wants? He has to fight these doubts and be patient with her at this time. All she seems to care about is the child.
The entire world spreads out before her. She can carve out of it whatever she will. She can use him and his energies as she wishes to achieve her dream. There is no mental hesitation or uncertainty. She goes for the achievement of her dream. She is having a baby!

9. He seems to be only a servant to her but then he remembers that is what he wanted to be. She is the Goddess. He wanted to build her dream for her and now she is using his energy to do just that! Working together they are both achieving those things they wished for. This is the beginning of high magic. They are making a family.

She is the Goddess, a force of nature, unstoppable. She perceives the karmic need for excitement, thrills, and vitality. She knows when to support him and when to bitch at him to get him fired up enough to do something. She gives him inspiration and takes from him what she needs.

10. Blinded by his love for her he sacrifices himself. He projects everything he has and is into her. He is free of all personal desires and plunges into spiritual death and rebirth.
She accepts his sacrifice. She embraces all that he is and resolves to make him complete in all things. It will take all of her power to completely contain his expansive energies but she sacrifices everything she is to do this.

11. They merge. They are one. They are a single unit, a new being. There are no barriers between them. They have become one soul and one family.

12. Their entire personal universe is now recreated on all levels in their image. All is realized, all is complete.

Duality-Sexual Alchemy Part 1

Duality- Sexual Alchemy

The greatest secret of all time is the use of the male and female energies to perform what is sometimes known as high magic. Because of the puritan ethic that dominated society in the past death was often the result of revealing too much. It is hoped today’s society will be more tolerant of this sacred mystery.

In chapter one we explored the normal stages of male ego development. Ego development and spiritual growth proceeded through a series of stages or steps culminating in a type of awareness beyond mental awareness that has been called Cosmic Consciousness.

This is the direct perception of self evident truth and the archetypal nature of existence. This path of development has also been termed the mystical path. It is driven through prayer and meditation.

In chapter two we took the opposite and suggested it may represent the normal stages of female ego development. In retrospect we can see this path represents biological stages of development with emphasis on three distinct phases each female may progress through. These are the stages of maid, mother and crone. They are driven by biological factors. Family, relationships and service are very important.
These two opposite paths both appear reasonable and logical and we are confronted with paradox. Both views extend from the lowest levels of awareness to the highest levels of awareness. Both are natural opposites of the other.
Classic books like “Men are from Mars;Women are from Venus” give further evidence that males and females do experience life differently. I will go so far as to claim that males will default to a spiritual/intellectual view of living while being intensely drawn toward sensual/biological experiences. Males will be drawn to the female path and experience it briefly but they can not sustain contact with it.
Females will be intensely drawn to a spiritual/intellectual view of living but default to sensual/biological experiences. They will be drawn to the male path and experience it briefly but can not sustain contact with it. They will loose interest in constant head tripping.
Another factor of interest is that almost any female can experience the complete range of ego development through dating, pregnancy, child birth, and menopause. Some females may be more successful than others but they all reach the pinnacle and regain their connection with Goddess. This is a holistic path.
The male path is quite different in that many males are not able to progress up the steps to the higher levels of ego development. They remain stuck at uncompleted stages for their entire lives. Progress to the next stage is not allowed until the current stage is mastered. This is a linear path.
We form relationships with the opposite sex to help us grow as individuals and as love partners. The dynamic energy exchange between these two paths propel us to become whole.

In this chapter we will form connections between the two views that reflect personal experience and help balance our inner male and female aspects. The degree format is not used in this chapter. Instead the male and female are seen as interacting with each other at ten separate levels.

The similarity between this chapter and such practices as “drawing down the moon” are noteworthy.

The man and woman agree to work together as an inseparable team to accomplish their desired goals. Since they are meeting primarily on the mental plane it is vital they have as many interests in common as possible. These common interests will help to bridge the vast spiritual gap that will face them later in the work and strengthen their sense of purpose. They are drawn together through a magnetic attraction called love. Romantic love relationships are sacred. Combined their energy is magickal.

The man should have a very idealistic and spiritual nature. He will be using male energy as a catalyst to lift her spiritual nature to those spiritual heights where she can contact the Goddess within.

When this contact is made she becomes the Goddess and by transforming his generated energy causes it to manifest objectively as healing energy or she directs it for stated magical objectives. He has the surplus energy she needs to achieve her goals. Alone his energy is wild and undirected. Together they can achieve miracles.

Using the male and female energies correctly is a form of tantric sex magic. This may or may not involve sex or orgasm. What is required is foreplay and sexual tension that is prolonged until intense sexual, emotional, and spiritual energies are generated between them.

Through physical contact these energies merge into her aura and stabilize. If they are fully clothed holding hands together will allow this exchange of energies to take place. In essence any type of male/female interaction will create sparks. This is the spark of sexual excitement.

In magical work sincerity of purpose is important, not ritual. Whatever is done must be original and meaningful to them alone. It must inspire emotions and arouse their desires. To perform this type of sexual alchemy takes time. Mentally and emotionally explore each other step by step. There are ten steps.

Each of the following objectives must be mastered completely before going on to the next. Each objective describes the male and female response as the male generates spiritual energy and invokes the Goddess within her. These steps are the two previous chapters combined as they describe the romantic interaction between two people in love.

There are ten stages or objectives that relationships progress through under normal conditions. See if you can recognize these first five.

1. In this first objective the male struggles to be both body and spirit. He strives to become one with the Christ spirit within him while still maintaining an awareness of his physical body.

He looks at her and recognizes the Goddess. He sees her as a spiritual being placing her on a pedestal and mentally kneels before her. He has expectations and standards for her that are so high only a Goddess could fulfill them. He does not feel worthy of her love. She feels his energy coming into her aura and body.

Mentally she identifies with the spiritual Goddess within her and opens herself to embrace his energy. This is true Goddess love. She acts through instinct and recognizes what sensations his energy produces in her physical body.

All options are explored. She allows this. She loves herself and the whole world. She accepts his worship of her. She is the Goddess. His love makes her feel lovable.

2. In this second objective she becomes the ideal for him as he gets to know her better. Mentally he tries to understand her. She is beyond logic and reason.

All answers merely bring more questions. She is a great mystery. She is good, she is evil, she is life, she is death, she is sin, she is salvation, she is illusion, she is reality.

His intellect is inadequate and he tries to intuitively understand her instead. He is in a complete intellectual fog and at her mercy. Words can’t express his feelings toward her.

Her body rejoices with eagerness. Everything is right. She is a physical Goddess. Her body obeys her mind. she feels stability and peace. She has no expectations of him at all. Everything is new and fresh. All is fulfillment.

She feels his energy influence her sensually. Her emotions are becoming aroused. There is great joy and freedom in exploring these new sensations. She identifies more and more with her body as she sees its effect on him. Her body can not be wrong. It can deal with anything that comes along. He is wrapped around her little finger. She uses her body deliberately to get reactions from him. She uses body language.

3. He begins to trust his intuition above other things. She is the Goddess and he is in love. There is no one else for him or ever will be. She is his Goddess. He is content to bask in her radiance, to merely be close to her. He never felt he could find someone that was so right for him. It’s like a fairy tale dream. He wants to have sex with her. Her energy makes his entire body shiver.
Her new body awareness is strange and she feels timid, shy, and uncertain. She feels weak and powerless compared to him. The very force of the emotions he is generating threaten to overwhelm her.

Instead of reaching spiritual heights the force of his emotions is plunging her down the steep incline into sensual materialism. Recklessly and joyously she forsakes all spiritual values and lets it take her where it will. This is also part of being a Goddess. She wants to have sex with him.

4. He finds joy and peace in daydreaming about her. He lets his imagination run wild as he explores fantasy after fantasy. His daydreams become more real than she is. It is what she spiritually represents that he is in love with. He tries to draw this Goddess down into her physical body with his imagination. When they have sex he is making love to the Goddess and not to her.
She feels apprehension and sorrow at her sudden exposure to the intensity of his emotions. He is now generating tangible psychic force and she must accept it and transform it. This force at first seems hostile and threatening. It stirs her emotions wildly. This is her first eye opening exposure to the forces that can be generated this way.

It is both terrifying and exciting. How can he have so much energy? It is too much for her so she tries to channel his energy upward to the Goddess. Sex is not what she thought is would be and she instinctively feels that something is not right about how he feels about her. He doesn’t really know her.

5. He realizes she is holding back and having difficulties with his energy. He turns his vast creative energies exclusively toward developing a type of energy she can work with. Through trial and error he examines the nature of the energy he is sending her. He perfects and refines each type of energy until he can send each type to her at will. Physical sex entraps both of them and she becomes pregnant.
She is totally overwhelmed by the varieties and force of the energies he is sending. This is a totally new experience and she becomes afraid of loosing herself completely in this wild vortex of raw sensual, emotional, and spiritual forces.

Even though she tries to be careful she finds herself being dragged deeper and deeper into his wild energies and she can’t escape. She is loosing control. He is beginning to dominate her. Then she becomes pregnant.

Duality-The Female Part 3

Magister Templi Degree

It has been said there are three great stages in a woman’s life. These are the three faces of the Goddess, Maid,Mother and Crone. For the male the Magister Templi Degree involves crossing the Great Abyss and the destruction of the false ego. For the female the Great Abyss is entering the Crone stage. Her child bearing years are done and she is known for her great wisdom.

It is in entering this stage that she is able to develop a strong ego for herself and finally turn toward her own needs and dreams. She has lived so long for other people that living for herself can be a strange and uncomfortable change. It is new and not comfortable.

She remembers being a maid and being a mother. Now she is once more developing a global perspective. She understands fully what it is to be a woman and is able to help those younger than her get through tough times. She is Mother Nature.
She becomes a great spiritual sea that embraces all the tiny drops that are others. She is the empty space that supports the stars. She is an illusion, only real through the actions of others. She is illusion and all else is real. She supports the entire cosmos. She seeks harmony and stability. She is inseparable from life. Life is action, she is reaction. She is order, Life is chaos, together they create all things.

Magus Degree

It is in this degree the female reconnects with her Goddess and spiritual nature. She regains the wisdom and insight she had as a small child. She does this by once more being around small children. Her children have grown and left the nest. But she has grandchildren.

She feels the emptiness and comes to terms with it. This is not only a death but a rebirth for her. She lets go of her children and embraces her own inner child once more. She watches her children become parents and struggle just as she has struggled. As painful as it is to watch others suffer she knows they must be allowed to find their own way.

When asked she has much valuable knowledge to share. The children really love her and feel close to her. The circle of life is complete and she understands. Her own children need to be allowed to experience and learn through their own mistakes and efforts.

Perhaps for the first time she can understand the need for tough love as she interacts with her grandchildren. The female finds spirituality through the biology of life and love. It is not an abstract spiritual light found in a church or through prayer. Spirituality comes through the love that is shared with friends and family. It comes and is given through a hug or through service to others. It is warm and it bleeds when it is hurt. That is what spirituality is.

Ipsissimus Degree

Spiritual light is only accessible through the physical worlds and physical man. She must journey back to the Priestess- to become a child before she finds fulfillment. The Ipsissimus Degree completes the journey of ego development for the female. The circle is complete and once more she has regained her Goddess nature and her spiritual power.

In this chapter we explored an alternate version of ego development and spirituality much different than what is commonly accepted. This path is the path of biology and physicality.

It is the path of life giving birth to life with the challenges and the joys such a path brings. The spiritual path for the female lies through the physical world as maid, mother, crone and leading to death.

This is a path of family and a path of service to humanity. The path of parenthood is not as natural for the male but it is just as important.

One of the things the female can do in this degree is understand and help the males in her life to understand this path and learn to value it. At the same time having traveled her own path she becomes free to gain an understanding of the male path and grow in that type of spirituality as well.

In summary we might consider the male path of development as the path of creating something out of nothing. The male takes an idea and manifests it in the physical world. This is also called creating heaven on earth. Doing this makes him a creator or God.
The female path of development is to bring Gods and Goddesses into physical life and to become a Goddess herself. Her body has the wisdom and ability to do this.
The irony is that very few males successfully reach the highest stages of ego development and spirituality. They become stuck at some lower level and can’t continue. Many are not able to bring their dreams into physical manifestation. Not many males can become Gods or creators.
All most all females can achieve the roles of maid, mother and crone. They can feel the power of mother’s love and the sorrows that come with it. All females can become Goddesses. Some just do it better than others. Some are able to achieve this without giving birth to children. They will give birth to family.

Duality-The Female Part 2

Philosophus Degree

Having broken her connection with Goddess she feels apprehension and sorrow at her sudden exposure to a hostile and threatening world. She does not feel safe and secure anymore.

This begins the birth of the lower human ego because the physical world and the emotional world are more real than the spiritual one.

There is a sense that all is chaotic and she is beset with cares and worries that are all too real and clear. Everything is too real and too physical. There is no escape from the present moment. This is the first eye opening exposure to the true terrors and delights of the material world. There is no more innocence, only awakening.

This is a totally new experience and a great sense of apprehension and sadness is felt in the fear of loosing one’s self completely in sensuality and materialism. There is the lure of becoming lost in the pleasures and sorrows of the present moment.
She is hesitant in using her imagination since she has so little spiritual and mental energy of her own. It is much harder than before and no longer comes naturally. Even though she carefully chooses her experiences she just seems to get in deeper and deeper and can’t escape. She might use drugs to escape from the pressures of unrelenting reality.
The physical, sensual life seductively lures her with promises of great treasures and rewards. More and more time is spent in physical pursuits until all of her energy and free time is caught up in physical life and in the present moment. She controls others like puppets.
Mentally she identifies herself as a physical Goddess. Sensual pursuits are fun and she explores the mystery of toil and virtue of labor. Her earth energies are turned toward relaxation, social life, and enjoyment. Total hedonism is the only way to truly experience all of life.
She is in a process of devolution and stagnation and so is everything else. She does one thing after another and nothing seems to satisfy. She is becoming jaded and seeks meaning in life. Little by little she learns about the world through experience and sensation. There is no spot for her to fill or path to follow. Everything becomes meaningless.
At some point she has a dramatic change of viewpoint. She is loosing the ability to be a co-creator. Her personal energy is almost used up. Unless she receives energy from someone else she will retreat into a life of dull drudgery. If she is not married she begins looking. The biological clock is ticking. She can’t do this alone. She needs a partner.
Her whole attitude remains self centered. She thinks of herself and how to get the things she wants in life. Others come second. This is a time of total selfishness. Mental abilities are at an all-time low and she is ruled by emotions and instincts. She will use people ruthlessly to get the objects of her desire. She will find a suitable partner through cold calculation if need be.

Adeptus Minor Degree

The entire world spreads out before her in richness and splendor. She can carve out of it what she will. For the first time in her life she feels like she can reach out and make a life for herself, an empire or a family.

She is ready to act and knows what to do. She can use people as she wishes to achieve what she wants. It is her dream, her empire that is important now. Her self-centeredness is absolute and her discipline is tremendous. She can accomplish great things. There is no mental hesitation or uncertainty. She can see with clarity exactly what needs to be done to get what she wants. She is a master and creator.

Her body can create life. She is surrounded with life and vitality. All seems familiar and safe. The world is an ecstasy of joy, color, sound and beautiful forms. All is sacred. There is nothing to think about. It is all here right now. Life is self-evident.

She is the Goddess-a force of nature-unstoppable. She understands the karmic need for excitement, thrills, and life vitality. Also she understands the need for ruthlessness and violence.

When harmony becomes too dull and monotonous she livens things up. She gives inspiration to others. She takes what she needs and others let her have it. She controls people like puppets. She is intoxicated with power and is on fire for more and more. She is especially given control over the men in her life and able to direct them and use them to achieve her goals. They are willing to give her what she needs and she is willing to accept. She lives entirely in the present moment.

Adeptus Major Degree

At this point she must confront and balance out any karma she created in previous years. This is a final harvest and accounting where results come back to her. Her motive power is gone completely. If she has good karma coming, this time will be a blessing as others come through for her. They now repay her kindness in full and give her energy and vitality.

If she has bad karma she must pay it back, loosing all she holds dear leaving only pain and sorrow. She identifys with the emotional and astral worlds of sense and feeling. She is riding a wave she has no control over. There is no reason for manipulation and control games. Those were in the past. She is living the results of past actions and she knows it.
She becomes uninhibited and careless of ideals. She experiences pure desire, emotion, and thought getting caught up in the intensity of the present moment, but she remains bound by her karmic chains. Instead of confronting her karmic chains, she may refuse and do anything to escape reality including drug and alcohol abuse. She is desperate to get relief from the stress of the moment regardless of consequences. She is blinded by her ego. This is where the most harmful karma is generated.
There is no escape and there comes a time when she gives in and accepts the consequences that are coming to her. In owning her responsibility for what is happening an important shift of awareness takes place.
She believes she alone is real, she is the Goddess. She experiences the physical realms in their entirety and has an elemental awareness of things. This is her peak in life. She is forced to confront her karmic chains and becomes a slave to it. She is sucked into the karma she created and works to become free. This is an important period of service. She learns to reach out to others forgetting about herself as she works out her karma. She has become a mother.

She forsakes the material world and tries to plunge into spiritual salvation through living for others. To her horror the spiritual planes are denied to her unless others give her their energy. She becomes dependent on others. She struggles to escape her karmic bonds. Physical sensuality takes the form of intense sorrow and physical agony as she suffers under her burden. Life is seen as a great sorrow that brings only death. The intense disharmony is not tolerable and she fears for her sanity.
In one way this may be seen as the burdens and demands of motherhood and child nurturing. There is a balance of both good and bad things happening and she is changed forever.

Adeptus Exemptus Degree

If giving birth is an initiation motherhood is an even greater initiation. Watching your children grow up and being there for them is very powerful. The Adeptus Exemptus has mastered being a good mother to her children.

Here she offers material things to her family without thought of self or personal gain. She is fulfilling her karma. She is compassion and feeling for those she loves, nothing else. She is reaching out to all things within her home with no thought of self. She sees everything, hears everything, and talks constantly. She is totally consumed by this role of being a mother.

She longs for the spiritual life and rebirth of the Goddess ego but this time in the mother aspect. She is drawn uncontrollably toward the spiritual levels. As the last of her karma resolves itself, her longing flings her toward total union with spiritual Goddess awareness once more. This is full realization of what being a mother really means. She becomes a matriarch. There is an interesting distinction between this level as a male and this level as a female. Most females attain to motherhood and to this grade of ego development. Few males ever reach their corresponding level of development.

Duality-The Female Part 1

Duality-The Female

Now the fun begins! Let’s take the information in chapter one and replace it with its natural opposite. Where death is mentioned use birth instead. Where spiritual is mentioned use material instead. In short, create a document that reflects the opposite type of ego and personality development than described in chapter one.

As a theory suppose this “opposite” type of ego development reflects the normal developmental process for females. Let’s see if this is feasible and of interest. Remember, the feminine nature exists within all of us, male and female.

As a study of duality we will presume “Duality-The Male” reflects the normal process of personality development in males. This is just an exercise to see what happens and is not to be taken too seriously.

“Duality-The Male” does represent the known stages of ego and personality development known through mystery schools of the past. Trying to create an “unknown” or “hidden” opposite type of ego and personality development is a study in the concept of duality. “If something is true, it’s opposite must also be true.”

No offense is intended. It is hoped additional insight into the dynamics of male/female interactions may be discovered. It is also intended as an aid in the perception of duality and the energy dynamics within male/female relationships and love in general. With this viewpoint the female is born with Goddess awareness having an intuitive perception of all things. She is born “psychic”.

Neophyte Degree

As a child she has the ability to easily express herself with words. Everyone is struck by her innocence and perceptiveness and they listen to what she has to say. She wants to share her Goddess perspective with others. Her words sting with truth. She is a Goddess within a child’s body and understands all things are possible. Good things can happen to everyone. She is optimistic and has the ability to do what ever she wants.
Intuitively she knows all karma resolves itself in the end. She can be carefree. As a teenager it is easy and natural to rebel against socially acceptable behavior. Her parents become alarmed and restrain her unmercifully to no avail. She learns to manipulate people and pull their strings to get what she wants.
Emotionally she has no strongly focused personal desires. She flits from one thing to the next in seconds and has everything she really wants. She feels joy and happiness as each wish is fulfilled. Life is good and she knows her desires will come true. It is hard to wait. There is no strong concept of time and the days blur together.
She dreams about her future life and what she will be when she grows up. She wants to be a bride and marry a prince. She has total control over her destiny at this point. With her Goddess awareness she can create the life she chooses. She is in control. Her intuition is highly developed and she can see how long term goals will work out. It is important she has a dream to inspire her to greater things.
Intuitively she knows there is no right or wrong. All things are potentials for exploration. She goes against her parents and gets others in trouble. She keeps secrets. There is apathy and depression because of an inability to choose only one direction out of the many that are pulling her in different ways. She might have trouble getting started but still she finds great joy and pride in the accomplishments of others.
Culture, religion, and philosophical concepts are very confusing. She appears very naive. Everything seems to go against her inner nature and is not harmonious. She is told how to think and how to act and she resents it. She rebels and rejects authority. The elders are blind, they don’t understand what she sees with her Goddess perception.
People are born, animals are born, plants grow from seeds. She is fascinated that one day she will be able to give birth. What will it be like? Where does the baby come from? How can the miracle of birth be? It seems unreal. Will it hurt her?
Her parents and society tell her sex is bad but how can it be bad if it produces babies? She intuits that sex is a need for a full life. With the beginning of her periods sex becomes a portion of her life that can not be ignored. The same is true for the mood swings that surge like waves through her.

Zelator Degree

She discovers that by appealing to others she can achieve physical goals easily. Everyone wants to please her. All nature appears bountiful and cooperative. There is enough for everyone. All she can do is good and she is impersonal love. She has light feelings of innocence and worthiness.

She is naive and tries weakly to enter into physical life. She is in her early teens, the Goddess awareness is withdrawing. She reacts to physical and emotional stimulus. She is turning her back on the Goddess within and facing an exciting and unknown world with mental awareness.

She notices others are fascinated by her body. She can wrap them around her finger by teasing them and flirting. She admires her body and seeks to be more beautiful. She spends her days in joy, experimentation, and curiosity loving herself. She is becoming more of a Goddess.

Nature and the world surround her with life, vitality, and sensuality. She identifys with it. She rejects her spiritual nature and accepts physical life. She has to live. Life is a joy and a reward. She can do anything. All things are possible. She identifies with a physical sensual body and a sharp inquisitive mind.

Mind and body are highly integrated. Her connection with the Goddess awareness is mental. She doesn’t need to think about it anymore. There is a sense of belonging and companionship in social activities. Her intellect is brilliant. As she withdraws from her Goddess awareness she looses her source of spiritual energy. Spiritual growth can no longer be done alone.
She doesn’t always get her way in things and gets into trouble. As her spiritual energy leaves, she becomes increasingly involved in wild emotional currents. Her mental clarity suffers and her intellect and reasoning ability gradually drop as they are overwhelmed by the emotions.
She will seek company, laugh with good companions, and enjoy the delights of the world. As she begins to deliberately use people she has less compassion, becomes cold hearted and lonelier.

Practicus Degree

In spite of all efforts she looses contact with her spiritual Goddess awareness as she grows older. At the end of this cycle there is not even an intuition connection. What she is left with is her intellect.

At the beginning of this cycle she mentally identifies with the spiritual Goddess, but opens herself to embrace all things. This is true Goddess love. She acts through instinct.

With the beginning of her periods she begins to recognize the physical nature in herself. All options are explored to the fullest. She loves herself and the whole world. Her body rejoices with eagerness. Everything is right. She has entered the physical realm and the Goddess is still supreme as an ideal although unreachable.

The body obeys the mind. She has all the answers and understands all things or thinks that she does. All is self-evident. There is stability and peace. She has no expectations. Everything is new and fresh. All is fulfillment. This is the first half of this degree.

The second half is more difficult. She moves from a position of empowerment to a position of weakness. As sensuality and the emotions become stronger, her spiritual Goddess nature is dismissed carelessly. There is great joy in freedom. Everything is fresh and clear. No intellectual fog. She identifies more and more with her body and her physical environment.
Her body can’t be wrong. It knows what is good for it or not good for it. Everything is clear. The body can deal with anything that comes along. She trusts her body over reason. Her body can get her things that her reason can’t.
This birth of body consciousness alters her thought processes. Abstract symbols become difficult and unimportant. She uses words, emotions and body language. Her new body awareness is strange and she feels timid and shy, uncertain.
The physical self becomes unhindered in its attempts at self expression. It rushes forward in total control. She feels weak and powerless. All is against her. There is no power. She has a great desire to accomplish great things and become somebody at any cost. She plunges recklessly and joyously down the steep incline into sensual materialism totally forsaking all spiritual values.

Duality-The Male Part 3

Adeptus Exemptus Degree

Mental energy can only be taken so far and these adepts have reached the outer limits. Do you know what happens when your mind fails?

These people have left the world of form, the material world and live entirely in their heads. They are dead to the physical world and move about conducting their worldly affairs like zombies. When viewed from the purely physical point of view these people would be considered insane or severely troubled. They are emotionless, stern, solemn and constantly caught up in their own thoughts. They are not really there.

The Adeptus Exemptus has eliminated all personal desire and lust for life. There is a strong feeling of death and stagnation. They no longer have any desire for creativity. They live in total self absorbed darkness. Even the desire for Spiritual light is absent. Detached from their surroundings and from themselves, they are completely folded in upon themselves.

They have gone too far and there is no going back. They see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing. All of their energy has gone inward in a total effort of spiritual selfishness. They seek only personal salvation and care nothing about others. They have no compassion or feeling at all. They are people that have used yoga, magic, meditation or prayer for personal gain and nothing can reach them. Now they are exploring the darker areas of their souls. They have gone too far and realize they are in trouble. In a desperate attempt to remain sane they freeze and try not to move in any direction at all.
If the Adeptus Exemptus has started their quest with compassion and concern for others karma will carry them forward into the temple of the Great White Brotherhood. This level emphasizes the importance of human compassion and concern for others. It represents the desire to help others with no thought for personal reward. People at this level are known as Avatars, Mahatmas…ect.
During this level a Master will appear and perform the baptism of the holy Christ spirit. The bridge between God/dess and conscious awareness has been built enough for the Christ spirit to descend in the form of a sacred baptism and initiation.
Those who refuse to share in the Great work can go no further. They have nothing to live for. All they have is a huge ego that shuts them off from others. They work only for personal gain and belong to the Black Brotherhood. They fear the abyss and death of the personal ego that lies ahead of them.
Members of the White Brotherhood recognize compassion for others is a sacred duty and holy trust. Spiritual selfishness must be eliminated with the death of the false ego. This degree is about the death of the false ego.
They stand on the brink of the Great Abyss. There is a sense of impending doom as the last bit of false ego cries out for survival. This is the brink of human consciousness. They are virtually at the very edge of their minds. Logic and Reason can not go beyond this point. There is a strong feeling of tension. There is expectation of an important event but nothing happens.
The tension is unbearable with a tug of war between pure spirit and matter. They are drawn toward God/dess across the abyss but fear the death of the ego because the ego can not cross. They have tasted union with the holy spirit at their baptism and now desire to merge with God/dess. But the spiritual bridge will not allow conscious awareness to cross it. Finally their deep longing wins and they plunge into the Great Abyss.
They take this plunge again and again until the false ego is totally destroyed. Their personality is no more. There is no sense of self. It takes courage and determination to achieve a permanent union with God/dess.
It requires long hard work and the spiritual bridge will only allow short moments of union with God/dess at a time. It will only allow brief glimpses, thoughts, and inspirations. Still the Adeptus Exemptus acquires the ability to achieve these insights at will and the day comes when their awareness will cross the abyss for brief periods at a time.
The feeling of crossing the Abyss is indescribable. They plunge into the arms of the great Cosmic Mother. They are surrounded in love and all embracing feminine warmth. They loose ourselves in holy bliss and rapture because they have truly achieved salvation. They know that spirit is reality and matter is illusion. This is the spiritual dawning of a new day and a new sense of self and awareness. This is the “Golden Dawn”.

Magister Templi Degree

     In this degree the adept achieves the highest mystical state known to man. This has been called “Crossing the Great Abyss”, “Cosmic Consciousness” and “Christ Consciousness”. Their awareness merges permanently with the collective intelligence of the human race. They achieve a state of transcendence and unity.
The Magister Templi has achieved the Golden Dawn and prepares for the Holy Marriage with the Christ spirit. They realize their own divinity and understand their life’s work. They complete and perfect the spiritual bridge. They also complete a mirror image, the microcosm back on the mental plane. This creates a perfect bridge of understanding allowing constant communication between the mental and the spiritual planes.
The Magister Templi has completed the Holy Tree of Life within. The trunk and branches are solid channels for spiritual energies. The roots are buried in the mysterious earth and thick leaves cover branches reaching up to the stars. This analogy means the Magister Templi has constructed a personal belief system that allows them to function at will on the spiritual plane and the mental plane.
They enter into the plane of spiritual love. Here they find self love and love of others. They see others as mere illusions or extensions of themselves. They perceive they are real and all else is illusion. They are a drop of spirit slipping into a great spiritual sea where they seek to loose themselves.
Somehow they must rise above these feelings and recognize others as real. Their task becomes helping others on their spiritual journey. This is the way of return to the physical world.
All karmic residue becomes ashes here for the white adept. Their karma has been consumed and they become liberated.
The Adept learns there is no supreme Deity except the one within themselves. All truth is unknowable and replaced by realized truth. This is revealed by the Christ Spirit a little at a time. Each adept must seek their own truth deep within themselves. This is an individual journey.
The adept sees the forces of Chaos and Order locked in eternal struggle. The male energy represents Expansive Chaos and their will to change the physical world. They aspire to become co-creators with God/dess.
The female energy represents Restrictive Order and the way things are now. Together they manifest all levels below this one. The duality that creates the universe is perceived. It is a balance of expansion and restriction.
The Magister Templi becomes an agent of Chaos to achieve their own personal desires and the upliftment of humanity. They desire to change the way things are.
Physical reality resists them fiercely and they are stripped of all power and attainment. This is the curse of this grade and the mystery of “Sorrow”. The physical world seeks to “eject” them

Magus Degree

The Magus is ready to return back to ordinary physical existence. They have learned outer reality is intimately connected to inner subjective reality. They have achieved real wisdom and gained recognition of their own level of achievement and mastery. They have integrated their spiritual nature and now need to integrate their shadow aspect.

The Magus becomes the legendary philosopher’s stone which transmutes all that come in contact with it. They are a circle whose center is nowhere and whose circumference is everywhere. They are who or what they choose to identify with. Here the Magus learns to consciously control self at all levels of existence. They reawaken the emotions and the physical body. They regain control over their surroundings and pursue their true purpose in life.

Like the artist that is completely free to paint what they choose, the Magus can do as they choose in life as long as they allow others the same freedom. Life becomes a true joy and an expression of self through all levels.
Their duty and purpose in life is to be themselves. By doing this they transmute all that come in contact with them and inspire people to a higher level of living.
The Magus is not all knowing or all powerful. They are only as knowledgeable and powerful as their belief system allows them to be. This is the real secret of their power and ability. Their belief system is open ended and harmonious at all levels. They can learn as much about any thing as they wish before going on to something else.
Their belief system is all inclusive. It includes the entire cosmos. This belief system is entirely integrated. It is like a hologram in which each part contains every other part.
The things the Magus can not comprehend are considered non-self and there is a powerful attraction between what they know and what they wish to know.
Learning is an area of intense bliss and the Magus will joyously spend their life learning all they can about physical reality. They have traveled through the different levels of awareness and now long to become those levels.
This is the indescribable experience of non-duality or total union with God/dess.
There is a sense of gentle loving and sharing that completely fills them. They are the key or microcosm and the universe or macrocosm is the lock. The key is all they are capable of knowing and the lock is all that is possible to become.
As the microcosm becomes more like the macrocosm, the Magus gains power and strength from the fabric of the cosmos. They use this power to achieve their ultimate purpose.
In their struggle to reintegrate with physical reality the Magus is active on all planes activating a causal link between astral/etheric reality and physical reality. Physical reality continues to stubbornly resist their efforts but gives way and they move forward anyway. The Magus is exploring the mystery of Change and how to achieve his/her true destiny.
For everyone that has not achieved this degree of awareness life consists of one step forward and one step backward with a zero-sum gain. That is why it is so hard to get anywhere without compromising who you are or what you desire. The Magus uses both sides of his nature to make each step move forward in an unstoppable manner toward the desired goal.
For the Magus the shadow self and the spiritual self work together toward a common goal under the direction and rulership of the true human ego.

Ipsissimus Degree

When the Magus is ready to achieve the highest region of spirit and the first stages of non-duality they become an Ipsissimus. This is the highest stage of psychological and ego development known to the ancients.

In this degree all of the energies, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual are integrated in complete harmony. In addition the Ipsissimus has also returned back to physical reality and become integrated with the energies of the earth and with the energies of society. They become a little child or babe, the son or daughter of God. This is the level achieved by Jesus.

At this stage conscious awareness and intuitive awareness are one and the same. They encompass all things at will. This is the highest level man can enter and return in the physical body to talk about. They have found their true path and follow their destiny. Being and doing converge as much as human life will allow. The Ipsissimus is as free as it is possible to be as long as they do what they were born to do. There is no discord or inner tension, only complete joy and peace as they recognize their divinity.
Eastern religions talk of the creation of the “immortal physical body”. When this body is created the ordinary physical body is discarded or transformed and no longer needed.

The Gods and Goddesses of all religions were once normal humans that achieved this degree and became divine or immortal. This has always been the true goal of the secret teachings within any religion.

Duality-The Male Part 2

Practicus Degree

In this degree we struggle with the problem of how to be both body and spirit. In the last stage of ego development we discovered our spiritual nature and determined it was the most important. Now we are trying to live in the correct way.
We have been won over to the cause and now it feels like we have been a abandoned. Our false human ego is still identifying with our physical body but at the same time holds up rigid idealistic standards for itself and for others to live by. Here we have puppy love. We establish role models and become hero worshipers.
We have expectations for finding the perfect wife, the perfect husband, the perfect home, and the perfect job. We set our standards so high no one can fill them. Then we hate ourselves because of our failure.
These standards are mental concepts that are not integrated into physical reality. They are unworkable. We have entered the realm of logic and reason and the human ego is no longer supreme. The ideal, representing logic and reason is now supreme. Although they rule our lives logic and reason are unable to get at truth. The answers we get bring more questions. This turns into a vicious circle that rapidly gets out of control until we finally learn to stop asking questions.
Logic and reason distort things. We are no longer sure of what is good and evil, sin and salvation, or illusion and reality. Our head begins to spin and our overworked intellect feels inadequate.
In desperation we trust our intuition and conscience instead. The intellect can sense it’s approaching death even as the emotions did earlier. It feels threatened as it desperately tries to grapple with things and understand them.
We find ourselves in an intellectual fog where the only voice of sanity and reason lies with unquestioning faith. We identify more and more with our intuitions, with the Christ spirit within us and faith in the inner voice of our conscience. As we do this our intellect is screaming at us to stop. It is trying to tell us what we are doing is insane and makes no sense at all.
Trusting our intuitions and the inner voice of our conscience brings the birth of a higher level of consciousness. We think not with words but with the symbols given in our dreams and meditations. Our thought processes are more abstract and visual. There are no words for what we are thinking.
The first stage is an uncomfortable struggle with logic and reason. The second stage of this degree brings the decline of the intellect and the true birth of intuition. We trust our intuition above all other things. We develop a great spiritual pride that our inner self has won over the intellect and physical self. This is a very dangerous time for us!
We have a true feeling of accomplishment thinking we are one of the great adepts. We have little desire to try further but are content to stay right where we are. This is a great spiritual plateau and we must beware the poison of spiritual pride. This level marks the boundary between consciousness and higher-consciousness.
Our new consciousness with absolute faith in the intuitive self is still untamed, it is a beast. It is still joined to the lower personality and to the physical body. The spiritual vision is distorted and our intuitive self is hindered in its attempts to communicate with us. The intuitive self rules but it is an uneasy rule indeed.

Philosophus Degree

We find joy , peace and inspiration in mental travels and daydreams as we build a bridge of communication between our intuitive self and objective consciousness. There are three progressive levels in the Philosophus degree that occur naturally.

The first level is the realm of mentally traveling in imagination through time and space. This is the realm of avid readers and bookworms, especially readers of science fiction and fantasy. This is also the realm of heavy daydreaming. Our mind is constantly chattering away and we are enjoying it. This is a summary of all the previous levels and a great sense of peace and joy is found in loosing one’s self in imagination and creativity.

The Philosophus lets his or her imagination run wild as he or she explores all aspects of physical life and what could be. Anything and everything is possible. This stage begins the death of the lower human ego because the mental world is becoming more real than the physical world. There is a growing sense that all is one and the cares and worries of the distant world become vague and unreal. We are starting to become head trippers.
We are drawn toward abstract thoughts and spirituality. The spiritual life seductively begins to lure the Philosophus with promises of great treasures and rewards. More and more time is spent in mental pursuits until all of his/her free time and energy is caught up in this type of activity. Material and worldly affairs suffer as we become careless. Our relationships with family and friends disintegrate and we weep bitterly at losing these things but we can’t help ourselves and continue living in our heads.
In the second level of this degree we feel and appreciate the things we have lost in our mental pursuits. We feel them because they are no longer there and we miss them. Our bridge of communication with our intuitive self is not being built very fast and the cost we are paying is very high. Mental pursuits are no longer as fun and take on an aspect of desperation.

We explore the mystery of toil and the virtues of labor through intense study. In desperation we turn our vast creative energies exclusively to labor and study to build that bridge as soon as possible.
We recognize only then will we know our true path in life. Our efforts meet with failure after failure as we struggle to manifest what is in our heads. Trial and error are the ways to turn our ideas into actual experiences.
We consider one occupation after another and test it for intuitive approval. Time and time again our intuitive self says “no, this is not it”. Little by little we learn about ourselves by discovering what is hidden in our blind spots. Do we like to draw or work with people or perhaps write. What we should draw. Should we be commercial artists? Architects? Pure Artists? Comic book illustrators? Children’s books?
What should we write? Poems? Stories? Magazine articles? Political speeches? Possibly we should translate books from one language into another.
Slowly but surely our intuitive self guides us on a voyage of self-discovery where the goal is not as important as the journey is. Through trial and error we see our labors as a process of self unfoldment and self-expression. We are in a gradual process of evolution and constant change and so is the entire universe. It is through living and suffering that we learn wisdom.

We see all parts of the universe are working together as a big system and each individual’s part is very important. We see there is a specific path or place for us to fill and we can sense the importance of it.
Intuitively we comprehend the entire universe oscillates between states of potential and kinetic energy. We started out as passive spiritual beings of pure potential, divine sparks of light. Then we descended into physical bodies of pure kinetic energy, all motion.
Now we realize we are once more returning to the spiritual realms of pure potential energy. We are on the path of return to Source. We can use our abilities and become co-creators as God has always intended us to be.
In the third level of this degree we have a dramatic change in viewpoint. We think about being co-creators of the universe and Masters of our own lives. We contemplate ways to harness the energies of the higher planes and use them in the physical world. As we strive to bring these intuitive insights into physical focus we pour increased vigor and vitality into our studies. It becomes critical to build our bridge of perfect understanding between our intuitive self, the Christ spirit within us, and our conscious awareness.
We think about ideas and concepts without awareness of self or identity or ego. Form and formless merge into each other as we consider pure abstractions. Thought constructs become things that have a life and awareness of their own. We sense the entire universe is alive in some way and aware of our efforts.
Our consciousness becomes an eye that can see where ever it chooses. We see matter and spirit as valid realities. We become obsessed with the completion of our spiritual bridge. Our intensity borders on the very edge of insanity and we are driven. Nothing else matters to us at this point. We are driven by the seductive golden dream of what could be.

Adeptus Minor Degree

The Adeptus Minor is gaining insights and inspirations at regular intervals. Bits and pieces of abstract cosmic revelations are gathered one by one. At this point these scattered fragments have no rhyme or rhythm to them and they defy all attempts to make sense out of them.

The Adeptus Minor continues the philosophical study of pure abstractions and archetypal images. They are attempting to build a mental understanding of the cosmic realm from the bits and pieces received. The goal is to create a perfect reflection of the cosmic realm, a mirror image inside that reflects the world outside.

However, the developing image is very distorted. Existence appears as total annihilation. The Adeptus Minor recognizes they are a long way out into mental space and all alone. There are no familiar landmarks and the entire region seems an abomination full of horror and madness. Insanity is lurking around the corner. There is no color, no sound and no form.

Nothing is sacred. It is a realm where only ideas and more ideas keep coming and have no where to go. The Adeptus Minor still identifies with their physical body and human ego. If they are Christian they come face to face with their higher self or angelic body.

This is the part of them that continues on in awareness after the physical body dies. They realize this angelic body is more a part of their true self than the false human ego. The person exposed to the concept of reincarnation comes face to face with his or her reincarnating ego. The real self that lives from lifetime to lifetime. Physical life in the present body is seen as meaningless, a mere puppet following the prompting of a predetermined destiny.
Past and future lives are seen as all occurring at the same time. There is a strong sense of time and destiny flowing together. A shift of identity is needed to properly assimilate these new parts of the self. The Adeptus Minor must shift their identity from ego to super ego. The viewpoint must shift from a single human being to a multi-dimensional personality.
The second stage of this degree is when this shift of viewpoint occurs. The world and universe appear as a tremendous spinning wheel or machine with little sense or purpose. This wheel is both seductive and deceptive. The Adeptus Minor now has the ability to perceive both the big cosmic picture and the material world at the same time.

If their belief system permits they also gain the ability to perceive multi-dimensional life lines, probable realities, past lives, future lives and probable selves blending together and exerting subtle influences upon each other.

This level corresponds to the so called akashic records of mystical thought and psychic ability. Humanity is seen as evolving spiritually from the rim toward the center. We are all moving back toward “Source”.
As the Adeptus Minor perceives the subtle blending of all these influences moving together in harmony they understand the karmic need for violence, bloodshed and death. Good fights evil, life fights death and all progress must be individually earned.
Where harmony does not exist violence is the only means for awareness to leap across the chasm and assure the greater harmony of the whole.
No Adept can give insight to another. However, they can give initiation to another if the student is properly prepared and ready for it. This is one of the duties of the Adeptus Minor. They are developed in understanding to the point where they are able to plant seed thoughts into the receptive minds of those ready for it. They become spiritual teachers.
Initiation implies a drastic change and totally new outlook on life. True initiation is within the mind and emotional nature of the student and the Adeptus Minor is in a position to say the correct thing at the correct time based upon insights gained from personal experience.

Adeptus Major Degree

Blindly intoxicated by the elixir of the gods the Adeptus Major enters the vault of preparation. At least that’s what the old alchemical texts say. In modern terms we might say he or she is going around the bend. This stage is crucifixion and sacrifice. The inspired bits and pieces from the intuitive self form dimly perceived patterns. The Adeptus Major gets very excited about these “spiritual truths”. A new way of thinking is arising out of these fragments and is understandable as far as it goes.

Fascinated by this perception of “truth” the Adeptus Major commits the sacrifice of believing in their own visions rather than what physical reality says or demands. They identify exclusively with their higher self and their visions. The Adeptus Major is free of personal desires, emotions, thoughts, regrets and attachments.

Only one thing matters. Perfect union with the divine. They have lost themselves in their passion for mystical experience. To others the Adeptus Major has become a thing of wood with no emotional nature.

Close friends, relatives, and family members are hurt and confused by the distance between themselves and the Adeptus Major. They do not live in the same world and can’t reach their loved one .The Adeptus Major is so heavenly bound they are no earthly good.

The Adeptus Major next enters into a deep understanding of cause and effect. The smallest pebble creates ripples that travel throughout the entire universe. Everything that happens affects every other thing. All reality is seen as relative. Occurrences are the result of many small causes and not one big one. This is very compatible with modern chaos theory.
Everything is grey. All is in motion. Good and evil, right and wrong become meaningless concepts. Moral values are imposed by man and not by God/dess. All is pure existentialism. What you see is what you get. The universe is self evident and everything is right in plain view if we can only see it!
All things contain a passive element and an active element that must be balanced. Logic and reason are destroyed. They come to realize all things can logically be proven to be the best that ever happened or the worst that ever happened. Truth is relative. Values are real only to those that perceive them.
At this stage the Adeptus Major confronts their karmic load and understands what must be done to become karma free.
The Adeptus Major knows they are a spiritual being. Their all-consuming goal is perfect realization of the divine Christ spirit within them and complete harmony with their conscience.
By now the spiritual realms are revealed in their entirety. They have developed an incredibly perceptive “Christ Consciousness” and an understanding of their life’s work.
Unfortunately they perceive the goal but can’t reach it. Physical reality fights against them. They feel objective consciousness as an unruly beast that refuses to go where it is directed. It is badly in need of discipline. In real terms they don’t know how to physically manifest their vision and become very frustrated.
Gradually they work through false thinking and confront the realities of daily life. Hard work each day brings new freedom from the chains of cause and effect.
They may appear quite irrational and fear they are going insane. They may fear but their spiritual lust and intoxication drive them to plunge into spiritual oblivion.
Spiritual oblivion takes the form of intense joy and spiritual bliss. Life is a great joy and dance that needs no other purpose than itself. This mental state is called dancing in the light. The intense harmony holds them spell bound. With joy they realize they are not going insane after all. There is a physical, material purpose to what they are doing. In joy they unite the physical and spiritual within themselves and work toward a united purpose.
They are enthused about the great things they are doing even though no one else understands them.

Duality-The Male Part 1

Duality-The Male


    I would like to share a few essays that compare the process of ego development with some of the more recognized landmarks of metaphysical and psychological research. I’ve used the grade system of the Golden Dawn as a convenient way of organizing this data using Israel Regardie’s book as a reference. I could just as easily have used terms used by psychology or some other school of thought. The main point is that even if different terms are used the experiences described are the same.

There is a universal experience that is true for all people even if it is highly subjective. Therefore these next chapters are tied together in a way that builds on what went before. What they propose is a progressive ladder or stairway we each must travel in the process of healthy ego development.

With a little imagination and memory work you will be able to identify personally with almost every stage that is listed. We achieve these stages all the time but do not recognize them for what they are. They offer a type of initiation that will act as a catalyst for personal growth and healing.

While my examples may not be strictly accurate they should be very evocative and I welcome comments that would help smooth these concepts out a little more.


In this degree the Neophyte or newborn begins explorations of the ego. What I’m really saying here is we move from an animal awareness into an awareness of “self”. Typically these levels are dealt with naturally during childhood. Each must be developed before we can move on and mature in a healthy way. This degree has eight levels of awareness. Each level deals with personal limitations and how our developing ego grows and adjusts to confront and gradually master these limitations.

I don’t know of any order or sequence these areas may fall into. I do know we are not complete until we have explored and come to terms with all of these areas. There are many similarities with Erickson’s “eight stages of Man”. Those familiar with his work will find this addition especially interesting.

Limitations of Language. So often in our lives words are inadequate to express the depth of our emotions and the intent of our actions. We feel no one understands us, no one will listen to what we are trying to say. Gradually we accept that we have a unique perspective on life and many things that happen will remain forever secret between ourselves and the God of our hearts. We are not able to share them with others and we will never be able to share them.
At least this is the healthy way things should be. All too often we expect others to understand and have insight into our personal situation. We want to think our loved ones know us but the reality is that no one can really know us that deeply, not even our loved ones.

Limitations of action. We learn very rapidly in life that certain things are acceptable and others are not. We think things are unfair. Why are bad things happening to us? Why can’t we do the things we want to do?
We learn there are consequences to our actions, that action causes reaction and we are in the highest sense responsible for our actions. We learn to do the right things at the right times so we are socially acceptable.
Our parents are a great help in this regard. We do unto others as we would have them do unto us. These are the beginning insights into the cosmic law of karma, cause and effect. They are also the beginnings of our natural sense of justice and fairness. There is pride in knowing we have earned the rewards we get in life.
Sadly generations of children are being raised without learning that their actions have natural consequences. Parents over protect their children and let them get away with things. How can children be expected to know how to behave when they turn eighteen if mom or dad always comes to the rescue?

Limitations of emotions. This deals directly with our strongest personal desires. Often we want things so badly we would do or give anything to achieve them. We feel hurt, anger and helplessness when they are taken out of our reach. We WANT these things and we can’t have them. This is especially true in relationships that involve other people. In time we learn to desire things that are within our grasp and our abilities.
It is very important our sights are aimed high early because otherwise we will lose our desire to succeed in life. Unfortunately many parents have killed the higher ambitions in their children by not giving them the emotional support they need when they need it. This is often during the critical teenage years.

Personal limitations. Now we deal with the limitations of our own newly developing ego. We realize our perceived shortcomings. Life is not fair. Why is my nose so big? Why am I so fat? Why am I so tall? Does any of this sound familiar? We come face to face with what we have been given in life and react with intense personal dissatisfaction. As we mature hopefully we grow above these things and accept ourselves as we are.
Learning to love ourselves goes hand in hand with believing in our abilities. This means to expose ourselves to life and be successful in our own eyes.

We are Gods and Goddesses Here we ponder what it would be like to live for ever and ever. As children we feel immortal and nothing can harm us. Life is huge and just goes on and on. We have no control over this at all. Awareness just goes on and on and on. We have a destiny to fulfill whether we want to or not. We believe we are important and have an important part to play in the universe.
Some children are told they will be judged according to their deeds and sentenced to heaven or hell upon death. Others exposed to reincarnation at an early age will see karma as a wheel of life where we are born again and again until we get some meaningless lesson right. It is easy to feel helpless and small as we consider these forces of destiny.

Right and Wrong. Here we deal with our desire for revenge and the destruction of the wicked. We know through our parents and others the difference between right and wrong. We try to do the right things and God help those who are doing the wrong things. We are on their case in an instant. As children we tattle and as adults we turn others in to the authorities. We feel a strong desire for reward and recognition because we are doing the RIGHT things. We also fear the pain and humiliation of punishment.
We’ re given an early understanding of life. We have now mastered the fundamentals. The stories and dogmas have been read to us. Our questions have been answered and our thoughts carefully directed to conform with the wisdom of our elders.
In their infinite wisdom they assure us there is nothing more to learn. Our education is over and we can take our place as adults even if we don’t feel like adults. We do this through ceremonies such as confirmation, baptism, and graduation. There is a strong sense of stagnation and we no longer question the way things are. Sadly many adults seem to be stuck at this stage of ego development.

Death. People die, animals die, plants die and we have a growing realization that we too will someday die. It is inevitable. What happens after we die? Where do we go? Is there life without the physical body? Does it hurt to die? Are ghosts real and can they hurt us?
Our parents and churches tell us we will go to heaven. They tell us heaven is the most beautiful place we can imagine. But they also tell us about hell and damnation. If we do not believe certain things and do certain things we will go straight to hell with eternal agony and torment. We need to save our immortal soul by not doing things our bodies want us to do. We learn to not trust our own bodies and instincts. We learn to die

Zelator Degree

    When is the last time you have been passionate and excited about a cause? When have you believed in something so strongly that you became a zealot? Have you ever been “born again”? As we mature and confront reality we also deal with lower emotional baggage. This level is the awakening of the conscience. Normally this development takes place around ten or twelve years of age.

I was fourteen when it happened to me. Sadly it might never take place in some cases. The development of our ego can not continue in a healthy manner until this stage is completed. Most of us have a conscience but we might not always listen to it.

This degree has two levels of thought. In the first part of this degree we hear the voice of our conscience and either ignore it or give lip service to spiritual and noble goals. We have good intentions but identify with our physical body and human ego. We feel unworthy to have the things we desire.

We go to church on Sunday but keep falling short of our own expectations. In religious terms we don’t want to sin but we still do. Every day we do things over and over again that we are ashamed of and despair. We are sinners. We are unworthy. We think evil thoughts.

Heavy feelings of guilt and self loathing are encountered at this level of thought. A powerful force digs up our deepest subconscious psychic contents and exposes them openly to us. We are brought face to face with every word we ever regretted, every thought we were ashamed of. We feel little more than animals mindlessly reacting to physical and emotional stimulus. We are brought face to face with the mirror of our soul. We don’t care if God/dess forgives us because we can’t forgive ourselves.
This is a very hard time and many flee in terror at what they see in the mirror. They spend the rest of their lives in misery, guilt and shame, hating themselves and dreading the day they must face their final reward. This is the crisis point of the Zelator degree that must be crossed.
Once we have crossed this point we hear the call “repent sinner”. We change our lives and live differently. We no longer identify with our physical body. Instead we identify with our immortal body that lives on after death.

“He who believes shall never die.”
“You must be born again into a new spiritual body.”
“You must be saved.”

These are the messages we hear at this critical stage of ego development. Our conscience is erupting and when we are ready to listen huge changes take place in our lives.
There is a mental shift where life becomes a test and trial that is necessary to pass before we earn eternal salvation. If we can look in the mirror and do the best we can every day the inner voice of our conscience will forgive us for the errors we make.
Most importantly we learn to forgive ourselves. As we accept the inner voice of our conscience and strive to follow it we grow spiritually.
In this second level we are “born again”. We identify with a spiritual body or soul that is immortal. We get excited about the idea of living forever.
Because the ego is self-centered there is a feeling of separateness from others that occurs along with the joy of being “saved”. There is a sense of isolation and terrible loneliness that is bitter-sweet. We want others to experience what we have. It is hard to accept that others may not agree with us. We are forever alone with a unique personal perspective and path meant only for us.
When we try to share this perspective we can’t and this realization is devastating. The things that are so important to us simply do not matter to others. They laugh and ridicule us. Still this loneliness is the result of distorted thinking. We are never really alone because the entire universe is always a part of us and we are a vital part of it. Others don’t need to follow our path. They need to follow their path.
Our realization and experience of being “born again” causes us to weep for the loneliness and suffering of humanity. So much misery does not need to exist. People don’t understand what they are missing. At this point we develop compassion in our hearts for others. As we share our message and interact with others we become less lonely.
Our sharing becomes more mental as the material world becomes less important. Slowly concepts gain strength and reality over our lives. We live through conscious intent and will instead of passing fancy.
As this happens the emotions lose their control over our lives. We gain control over them and repress them until they are almost non existent. As this happens we depend more and more upon reason and logic.
This is a very painful period because we sense the coming death of the emotions. Life is no longer as fun as it once was. We have lost our “inner child”. Life without emotions is no longer life.

Appendix A: The Astral Planes





(in this study life span indicates the known half-life of the radioactive element or isotope of that element.)


Element #118  “unknown”

This is the heaviest possible element.  If it exists it has seven complete electron shells around it.  It would belong to the Noble

gases.  Astrally it would share the characteristics of the noble gases and resist interaction with other elements.  It would act as a barrier to astral travel.  It would act to keep life energy within the physical body and protect the physical body from outside influences.


Element #117  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #116  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #115  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.

Element #114  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #113  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #112  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #111  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #110  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #109  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #108  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #107  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #106  “unknown”

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #105  Hahnium

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #104  Rutherfordium

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span, possibly only seconds.  An astral body created of this element would last only seconds outside of the physical body before returning to it.


Element #103  Lawrencium

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a very short life span of less than three minutes.  An astral body created of this element would last less than three minutes outside of the physical body before returning to it.

Life threatening situations where “everything is moving in slow motion” may be the result of the projection of an astral body created of this element  working to resolve an immanent threat to the physical body.

It is also possible that life energy flowing through this astral body is responsible for our conscious awareness of things within our immediate environment.


Element #102  Nobelium

The seventh electron shell of this element would be incomplete.  It would be a radioactive metal with a life span of possibly 58 minutes.   An astral body created of this element would last about 58 minutes outside of the physical body before returning to it.

It is also possible that life force flowing through this astral body gives us conscious awareness of what is going on in our environment and allows us to “anticipate” events up

to an hour in advance.


Element # 101 Mendelevium

This element is radioactive with a life span of about 58 days.  An astral body constructed of this element would exist about 58 days before deteriorating.  Here we get our first clue about the role that these lower astral levels play in our lives.  with each higher level the life span is seen to be increasing.

It is obvious that our individual awareness does not exist outside of our body for 58 days at a time.  We are  able to project and anticipate events this far into the future and to remember in short term memory this far into the past.

Tentatively we can suggest that the lowest levels of the astral plane concern our physical awareness and consciousness during normal waking hours. We have awareness of our immediate environment as we interact with it.  We have the ability to plan ahead into the future both short and long term.  We also have short term and long term memory that allows us to remember past events and learn from them.


Element #100  Fermium

This radioactive element has a life span of 100 days.  Astral bodies or events at this level would deal with life events up to 100 days into the future or 100 days into the past.

Our daily awareness and planning three months into the future or remembering events up to three months into the past would naturally occur here.


Element #99    Einsteinium

This radioactive element has a life span of 276 days.  This would deal with our conscious ability for long range planning into the future.  It also would deal with more long range memory of important past events.

This is a natural break in the astral levels because above this level the characteristics of the elements change radically.

In summary this first group of lowest level elements have short life spans ranging from fractions of a second to less than 300 days.  Since the human body contains trace elements of all elements within it, the human body also must contain the astral components of these elements needed to create a “resonant circuit”.  Also the human body should have characteristics similar to those of these lower elements.

In fact, these lowest astral levels could represent the basic requirements for life as we understand it.  Here is possibly the basic “instinct” for survival and the ability of an organism to interact meaningfully with its surrounding environment. Its ability to adapt to new survival conditions and to learn from past experiences. Also it’s ability to escape from life threatening situations.

On a higher octave these levels could represent humanity’s ability of self-awareness and our ability to plan future events as well as remember past events. These levels could represent our “attention” spans!

From the perspective of the earth’s resonant circuit and it’s tremendous “tank current” these levels would represent atoms or astral events that are rapidly deteriorating to the lowest element #118.  These are events that are in the process of happening or have just happened.

Energy is in the process of leaving the astral part of the “resonant circuit” and entering the physical part of the circuit as a physical reality.  The flow of all energy is toward element #118 which somehow transmits all of the energy into physical objects, possibly through gravitational waves that not only bring objects together but also bring people and events together.

“Astral” travels or dream “adventures” work against this natural flow of energy and require large amounts of energy from the physical body to sustain themselves.

In contrast the normal flow sustains “instinctive” awareness of the immediate environment and an ability to plan ahead in humans.  It supports “physical” activity and survival.




(in this study life span indicates the known half-life of the radioactive element or an isotope of that element.)


Element #98    Californium

This radioactive element has a life span of 900 years.  As additional characteristic is that it emits high amounts of energy.

900 years is obviously longer than the human life span.  This astral layer marks the lowest layer  of what occultists call the “Akashic records”.  As this is the lowest layer it is also the most accurate “record” of past and future events.  It is at this level that we find our true destiny and path in life.

Events in this astral layer are not easily altered.  This is where the earth has finalized physical events and it’s tremendous “tank current” locks these events in place.


Element #97    Berkelium

This radioactive element has a life span of 1,400 years.  Here we find the probable events of the next 1,400 years. The earth’s “resonant circuit” is narrowing down potential  future events into the most harmonious from its point of view.  Seen from this long range perspective individual lives are not very important.

An exception to this would be the lives of very important and influential people.  These few people have the ability to alter society and the face of the earth itself.  For that reason they are important factors here.  The earth demands that certain changes in society happen at certain critical time periods.  It “empowers” certain individuals so they can achieve these critical changes.


Element #96    Curium

This radioactive element has a life span of 10 million years.  Astral events recorded here would deal almost entirely with earth changes and not with life forms at all.  The most successful and adaptable life forms would be represented and that would be all.


Element #95    Americum

This radioactive element has a life span of 7,400 years.  It also has the characteristic of being super conductive at very low temperatures.

This is an interesting break in the “Akashic” records.  In fact, this could be considered the beginning of “probable” future events.  The lower “Akashic” records could be almost set in stone as far as a person’s ability to alter them.

This level being super conductive suggests that huge quantities of energy may try to alter the course of events.

This could very well be a battle ground where species collectively struggle against extinction and struggle to ensure their place in the future.


Element #94    Plutonium

This radioactive element has a life span of 24,100 years.  It’s radiation is highly poisonous and it is used in atomic bombs and nuclear reactors.

The poisonous nature of this level suggests that here we may find the possible death of all species including our own.  As much as we would like to believe that human life is special humanity can only exist as long as we can adapt to our environment.  Here for example we could find life after a global nuclear war as well as life where nuclear war does not exist competing side by side as potential futures.


Element #93    Neptunium

This radioactive element has a life span of 2 million years.  The large time span represented here represents what could happen in the next 2 million years if things continue as they are now.  These global “events” are subject to change depending on the actions of humanity and other life forms on the earth’s surface.  Here is where the natural course of events can be altered for millions of years into the future.


Element #92    Uranium

This radioactive element has a life span that ranges between isotopes.  It could be as long as 4 billion years or as short as 250,000 years.  It is highly poisonous and reactive with other elements.  It is also the heaviest natural element found pure in nature.  It is the main source of nuclear power.

This astral level has some very interesting characteristics that suggest it is a very critical level in the formation of possible future events.  It’s highly reactive nature would allow many possibilities and options to be tried before selecting the most stable ones.

It is very possible that here self-determinism and will power can for the first time alter the “natural” course of events and where one person’s contribution can make a big difference.  Here individuals can compete for critical roles in humanities future.  The “will to survive” can empower heroic actions and discoveries.


Element #91    Protactinium

This radioactive

element has a life span of 33,000 years.  Here are even more speculative versions of the future and of the past. Here are things that could have happened but didn’t. Maybe sometime in the future they will again be possible.  Here also is a fine place for imaginary events and beings to be tried out to see if they are practical and realistic.


Element #90    Thorium

This radioactive element has a life span of 14 billion years.  It is also the last of the “Akashic” records.  Here is recorded the past and future of the entire universe.  All events must find their proper place in the “Big Picture”.  When our sun burns itself out something will happen to life on earth.  Galactic events like this take priority over anything we can do.

The survival of the human race depends on our ability to be somewhere else when our sun burns out.  Potential events like these are so far in the future that it has not been determined yet.  This level offers a general map of the probable course of natural “Galactic” events that will shape our universe.


Element #89    Actinium

This radioactive element is known to “glow in the dark”.  It is a silvery white metal.  It is possible that “ectoplasm” is an astral body constructed of this element.  In any event such an astral body would have a ghostly appearance to an observer.

This may be where the first formation of the “etheric” double takes place. The “etheric” double is said to be the heaviest “astral” body.  Trained occultists are supposedly able to function at full awareness in this “astral” body and to have a complete memory upon return to the physical body.


Element #88    Radium

This radioactive metal is luminous and is under constant decay.  It is used to coat luminous dials.  It also releases large amounts of energy.  This may also be related to “ectoplasm” and to “ghostly” encounters or astral visions.


Element #87    Francium

This radioactive alkali metal has a life span of 21 minutes.  This just happens to coincide with the average persons “dream” adventures.  An astral body constructed of this  element would last only about 21 minutes.  This could very well be the average dream body that we are all familiar with.


In summary the astral levels that correspond to elements with a seventh electron shell can be broken into five distinct sections that compare favorably with traditional occult science.




The lowest division is that of element #118 which has a complete electron shell and directs the tremendous “tank” current of the earth’s “resonant circuit” into all physical objects and life forms.  It is at this level that all astral events become physical reality through a gravitational force that pulls objects together and impels specific events to happen at specific times.





The second division corresponds to life and an instinctive awareness of immanent events in one’s life.  This is situational awareness and allows a life form to interact with it’s environment and survive potential life threatening situations.  On a higher octave it may also relate to mankind’s ability to consciously think ahead and plan future events deliberately.





The third division is that of the “fixed” “Akashic” records.  These events are essentially set in stone and will happen physically.  The massive “tank” current in the earth’s resonant circuit holds these events in place.




The forth division is that of the “potential” “Akashic” records.  Here various combinations are tried out before the selection of the most stable and harmonious events.  This area is essentially a “war zone” in the sense that entire species must struggle to maintain the right to exist.  Those species that can’t adapt to changing conditions die.  This is also where “key” figures in society’s advancement are selected.  The “will to survive” determines who will live and who will die.




The fifth division is that of the “etheric double” , ectoplasm and ghostly encounters as well as the “dream” body.  This level is where the “astral” body first takes on individual awareness and participates in “astral” activities.




Element #86    Radon

This element is a heavy odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has six complete electron shells.  Because it’s outer shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect.  It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

Because of the barrier it forms it also separates the “tank current” energy of the sixth and seventh electron shells.  This effect is to separate “seventh chakra” energy from “sixth chakra” energy.


Element #85    Astatine

This element is extremely unstable and looses electrons readily.  An astral body constructed of this element would also loose energy readily and be extremely unstable.  We would not expect to find any lasting astral objects or beings in this astral level.  In fact this level would act as a constant drain on any astral body that existed in the higher levels.  This is true because any astral object or being is tied to its physical counterpart at all times.  The “astral cord”  would exist here instead of an astral body.


Element #84    Polonium

This element is a radioactive metal with a life span of 103 years.  This would form a stable astral body and we would expect to find our “proposed” future life with all of its main events here.  As the lowest stable level in this group this is probably the main level of the “dreaming” astral body where we dream of things that happened during the day or things that may happen to us in the future.

This level is probably the base of our individual egos and our concept of self.  In the lower levels the concern is for survival of the species.  Here the concern is for survival of the individual awareness.


Element #83    Bismuth

This is a brittle white element with a pink tint.  It melts easily and gives sharp impressions for casting. The brittleness of this element would suggest that this level would not make a good astral body in itself but could be used to form personal armor and astral barriers and obstacles.

Since it melts easily it would be an excellent choice for astral creations during magical workings.  It is probable that here the magician does much of his creative work by melting astral material and reforming it the way he wants.  This type of astral “construct” could be expected to retain it’s form as long as it was “protected” by the magician until it became a physical event.


Element #82    Lead

This is a heavy bluish gray element that has been known and used by mankind for many years.  It is a poor conductor of electricity and resists corrosion.  It also has a toxic effect on humans.

These characteristics suggest that this astral level is not a pleasant place to exist in awareness.  An astral body constructed of this metal would be best left alone.  In fact, it is very likely that this level is responsible for our experience of pain!  This is the first astral level of physical pain.  Quite possibly a dull pain.


Element #81    Thallium

This element is a soft bluish gray metal that is toxic and is known to cause nerve damage.  This astral level would also be related to our pain experience.  As this astral level directly affects the nerves it suggests that this is the level of intense physical pain.  The type that occurs immediately upon sustaining an injury.


Element #80    Mercury

This silver colored metal is a liquid at room temperature.  It flows very swiftly and is extremely poisonous.  The nature of this level also indicates that it is related to our pain experience.  The quickness of this element indicate that this levels effects on us happens very rapidly.  This is our first awareness of pain at this level.  As our energy drains away our awareness drops to a lower level as either sharp pain or a dull throbbing pain.

Here is also a very important clue about how human life exists normally in the astral planes.  Since we do not normally experience pain, it suggests that human awareness is above this astral level normally.


Element #79    Gold

This element is a bright yellow metal that is very soft and heavy.  It is very beautiful and highly valued for its beauty and its durability.  In this respect this is one element that we can’t seem to get enough of!

In contrast to the levels immediately below it, this level brings great pleasure to us.  In the form of wealth and in the emotional sensation of pleasure.  It has often been said that there is a thin line between pleasure and pain.  This level gives us tangible evidence to that truth.

This is not just simple pleasure but a very intense type of pleasure.  The most intense type of pleasure possible to experience.  This of course is sexual pleasure.  This astral level is where we experience sexual energy for the first time as a pleasurable experience.

Astral experiences at this level would be sexual experiences or possibly experiences involving Gold.


Element #78    Platinum

This is a precious silver white metal with a high melting point.  It combines easily with other elements and resists corrosion.  The desirability of this element suggest that it also is related to our emotional sensation of pleasure.  Since it combines easily with other elements this astral layer would include all things that give us the sensation of pleasure with the possible exception of sex and wealth which belong to Gold’s astral level.

Astral experiences at this level would include many pleasurable things. This is probably where we find what is commonly known as “the elemental worlds” of fairies and nature spirits that are benevolent and kind.  In reality all life forms found here would also have physical bodies to complete their “resonant circuit”.  A fairy or nature spirit would belong to a human that is somehow distorted at that level.  Perhaps they never had a normal childhood and that part of their personality never developed as it should.

Here the “child within” delights in playing pranks on others or in doing things not allowed in physical life.  This is the realm of fantasy where your secret wishes come true.  Here is the experience of enjoyment of life in all of its aspects.


Element #77    Iridium

This is an extremely hard white metal that resists corrosion.  Being a hard metal suggests that it acts as a barrier to astral activities.  Its resistance to corrosion suggests a protective function.  This element as an astral substance would be ideal as armor or tools used block or restrain astral activities.

This barrier aspect suggests that is related to the emotions of being blocked and frustrated.  Our happiness and pleasure is suddenly blocked by this hard barrier and we feel trapped and helpless for the first time.  Perhaps we even feel fearful. We are no longer in control.  Other people or events may control us against our will.


Element #76    Osmium

This element is a hard metal that is twice as heavy as lead.  It is used for pen points and phonograph needles.  Here is also a barrier aspect, but this level is related to communication, both written and through sound.  In this astral level we are confronted by other astral objects and beings.  We also communicate with them at this level for the first time.

Here we become acutely aware of societies wishes for us and what we must do to conform and keep our level of awareness as pleasurable as possible. Here we find societies barriers that limit what we can and can’t do.


Element #75    Rhenium

This silvery white element is noted for its high melting point and its resistance to heat.  Astral objects and beings constructed of this element would be very resistant to efforts to change them.  This then is an important source of strength and stability.  Here is stamina and endurance against resistance.  Here is our ability to freely choose what we want to do and the ability to do it.  This is the foundation of ego strength.  “I exist”.  I will continue to exist.


Element #74    Tungsten

This hard silver white metal has a very high melting point and is resistant to heat.  It is used as a heating element in some light bulbs.  In this astral level also gives stamina and endurance and is an important source of strength and stability.  The connection with light and illumination suggests that this strength is will power or strength of spirit.  Here strength of spirit overcomes obstacles and barriers.

In the occult tradition the sixth chakra is related to both magic working and to the “berserker frenzy” that came upon the Vikings in times of battle and made them “invulnerable”.  That tradition supports the concept of these astral levels dealing with stamina and endurance and overcoming obstacles and barriers.


Element #73    Tantalum

This element has a high melting point and refracts light.  It doesn’t react with bodily fluids and seals itself when used in capacitors.  These characteristics suggest a “healing” ability where injuries are sealed off and prevented from becoming physical events.  Here for the first time harmful events are anticipated and any wounds or losses are minimized to prevent further loss of energy.


Element #72    Hafnium

This silver colored metal absorbs neutrons and resists corrosion.  Since this element absorbs energy we would not expect to find many astral objects or beings here.  We would instead find the “astral cord” or “cable” of occult tradition.  It would take large amounts of energy to exist above this level because of its draining ability.  Humans would have this ability and energy normally.  Some life forms of a more simple nature would not have the needed energy.

Here we are prevented from doing what we really want to do through lack of energy.  We settle into a decadent state where we try to enjoy the things we do have until we have the energy to get what we really want.  This could be the level of depression and chronic inactivity.


Element #71    Lutetium

This heavy element is noted for its ability to conduct electricity.  Astrally this implies the ability to give energy to others or to take energy from others.  Here for the first time is the ability to change things in the astral by applying energy to them instead of by simply resisting them.  Here the astral body or the “dream” body has energy to spare and it uses it to influence possible future events.

Astral contacts here would involve a definite exchange of energy from one person or object to another.  Here is the first evidence of magical power as energy or electricity used for both offense and defense.  We are rising above our depression and trying to direct astral energy into the astral events that we want in efforts to physically achieve them.


Element #70    Ytterbium

Very little is known about this element and its characteristics.


Element #69    Thulium

Very little is known about this element and its characteristics.  It is used in some x-ray units suggesting that it radiates and gives off energy.


Element #68    Erbium

Very little is known of this grayish-silver element.


Element #67    Holmium

Very little is known of this silver colored metal.


Element #66    Dysprosium

This element is strongly attracted by a magnet.  This characteristic is exciting because of its connection to magnetic vortex energy.  Occult tradition has long talked of the “cone of power” that is raised during magical workings.  That is also applied to the sixth chakra center energies.

At this astral level we would expect to find the astral ability to strongly attract things to us and also the ability to strongly repel things away from us.  This is the battle ground for “astral duels” and other astral contacts.  In our dreams we are helplessly drawn toward other astral objects and beings.  When contact is made energy is exchanged and lost.  This continues until one party reaches the pain levels and/or breaks the contact.  The one with the most available energy will endure here.


Element #65    Terbium

This silvery metal glows green in certain compounds.  Not much else is known about this metal.


Element #64    Gadolinium

This silvery metal is strongly magnetic when extremely cold.  This characteristic suggests that this level will strongly attract and repel astral events and objects.  This is another “magical” battle ground for astral “duels” where the one with the most available energy wins the prize.  Here also magnetic vortex energy suggests the occult “cone of power” and its possible uses.


Element #63    Europium

Very little is known about this soft silver metal.  Its softness suggests that astral weapons for use in astral duels may be created here.


Element #62    Samarium

Little is known about this element.


Element #61    Promethium

Little is known about this element.


Element #60    Neodymium

Little is known about this element.  It is used in ceramics and lasers.  This may suggest potential for astral weaponry.


Element #59    Praseodymium

Little is known about this element.  It is used in ceramics.


Element #58    Cerium

This soft gray metal has an electron structure that is easily changed.  This suggests that all astral events and beings found at this level can be easily altered at will.  Here may be the true level of magical working where astral creations are deliberately fashioned.


Element #57    Lanthanum

This soft silvery white metal tarnishes when exposed to air.  Here for the first time astral objects or beings or barriers can be destroyed.  Astral  material here will tend to weather and decay or age.

Steady resistance at this level will eventually wear an opponent down or destroy a barrier or obstacle.


Element #56    Barium

This soft heavy metal combines easily with other elements.  This suggests that here all possible options are available and tried out.  Here we find a way “around” the astral obstacles and beings that prevent us from getting what we want.


Element #55    Cesium

This soft silvery metal reacts vigorously to air and water and ionizes readily when struck by light.  These characteristics suggest that nothing remains for long at this level.  This would be a very draining level and require tremendous levels of energy to maintain awareness for any length of time.

Here we could find the destruction of opponents in astral duels as well as the simple “astral cord” or “cable” leading to higher levels.


In summary this group of elements with six electron rings represents sixth “chakra” energy.  It  can be broken down into nine separate and distinct categories.




This is the barrier or veil that separates fifth “chakra” energy from sixth “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




Here we find our “proposed” life span and destiny.  This is not set in stone, but it does represent what the earth intends for us at this time and in the future.  To change things at this level requires much work and energy.

This level is also the “foundation” of our sense of “self”.

At levels below this we find species “instincts” and awareness of our immediate environment.  Animals also have “instincts” and an awareness of their environment but they do not have a sense of “self” as we do.  At least not to the degree that we do.  An animal’s sense of “self” is constantly evolving just as ours is but it would rarely go beyond the sixth “chakra” energies.




This astral level gives us the awareness of pain.  There are three types of pain, immediate pain from an injury, sharp lingering pain that will not go away, and a dull aching pain.




This astral level deals with sexual pleasures and wealth.  Two things that are very closely related.




The energies of this level deal with our general enjoyment of life and a full satisfaction of its many pleasures.  Here we find contentment in life.




Here for the first time we are confronted by social restrictions.  What we want for ourselves is in direct competition with what others want and whoever has the most energy wins.




At this level we develop Ego strength and will power to resist social pressures that want us to conform.  We have the will to compete and fight for the things that we want in life.  We make up our minds to battle against the odds to win. We willingly sustain injuries to get what we want.




This level saps our strength and energy.  We fall into depression and physical inactivity.  If we can’t get what we want we won’t do anything at all.  We are fiercely resisting societies pressures and we aren’t winning.  This is a stalemate where society doesn’t win and we don’t win either.

The entire struggle is raised to the higher levels and tremendous amounts of energy are used up in this struggle.




This is the level of magical power.  We have gained our victories over the opposition in this “battle ground”.  For the first time things are beginning to work out in our favor.  Here we are able to destroy the obstacles that are trying to hold us back.  We have energy to spare and we use it to get the things we want in life.  We have the power to get what we want.




Element #54    Xenon

This element is an  odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has five complete electron shells. Because it’s outer shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect. It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

This barrier separates fifth “chakra” energies from sixth “chakra” energies. It also stabilizes fifth “chakra” energies.


Element #53    Iodine

This shiny, bluish-black element has an irritating odor and goes from a solid directly to a purple gas.  Plants and animals require this element for life.

These characteristics suggest that astrally awareness at this level is a cellular or an organic awareness.  Here is the base for awareness of the physical body.  This is the beginning of ego as a physical being.  Below this level we find the species instinct to survive at the lowest level.  We also have awareness as “I hunger”, “I hurt”, “I feel Pleasure”.  Here we have “I have a physical body”.  “I must take care of it.”


Element #52    Tellurium

This element is used in alloys and semiconductor research.  It is also used as a catalyst.  These characteristics suggest that this level deals with possibly the nervous system and the sensory organs and with the way bio-electrical energy flows through the body.


Element #51    Antimony

This bluish-white metal is brittle and used to harden alloys.  Its use on the astral plane suggests a barrier and possibly a form of astral armor.


Element #50    Tin

This white metal has long been in use by mankind.  It is very useful in packaging foods and in solders. This elements close relationship to food and to electricity suggest that this level is very beneficial to us.  We may draw energy and strength from other “food” or “energy” sources” here.  This level is a life sustaining energy source.


Element #49    Indium

element is an extremely soft silver-white metal.  This suggests that many astral objects and astral “bodies” are found at this level.  They are supported by the level directly below it.  If awareness reaches this level it is self-sustaining at this point.  This suggests the formation of a permanent type of awareness, perhaps true “self-awareness”.


Element #48    Cadmium

This soft silvery-white metal is used for alloys and plating.  It is poisonous.  These characteristics suggest that this level is painful and also quite stable.  We would expect to find a fairly permanent type of awareness and astral body here.

This level belongs to our “dark” self.  Here we find all those things about ourselves that we don’t like.  Later as we accept our “pain” and learn to value our “darker” nature we realize that it helps us to relate to others in a more humane way. Here we can empathize with others and feel their pain as well as our own.  This pain is emotional pain and not physical pain.


Element #47    Silver

This precious metal is one of the first ever used by man.  It is noted for its beauty.  It is used in artworks and also kills bacteria.  It is an excellent conductor of electricity.

This level belongs to our “light” self.  Here we find all the things about ourselves and others that we like.  We feel the emotion of love and joy.  This is where the healing power of love overcomes illness.  Here we really feel alive and vibrant.  We are in “love” with life!


Element #46    Palladium

This soft shiny metal is used in surgical instruments and in white gold.  This suggests both a beneficial state as well as a corrective, possibly painful experience.  The bitter-sweet feeling of personal growth and therapy come to mind.  We feel good about becoming more healthy even though it is sometimes painful to give up our old ways.


Element #45    Rhodium

This silvery metal is resistant to corrosion and is very reflective.  It is used in mirrors and fine jewelry as well as electrical connections.  Here we have purified our inner nature until we have become “bright and shiny”.  We no longer identify ourselves with a physical body.  We are more than a physical body, we are also an “immortal” body.  We have an “immortal” spirit.  This is the born again experience.


Element #44    Ruthenium

This element is used to harden metals and is very wear resistant.  This suggests use as armor as well as barriers and obstacles.  We find that life still throws barriers at us and we still need to resist them.  We may be spiritual but we are still living in physical bodies.


Element #43    Technetium

This element is a good radiation source.  This suggests that this level is another power source for us if we can reach it in awareness.  This would be a type of “spiritual” power.


Element #42    Molybdenum

This hard silvery metal has a high melting point and an important trace element in plants.  It is also used in some lubricants.  These characteristics suggest its use as a defensive armor that allows troubles and problems to “roll off” and “not stick” to us.  At this level no problems can really bother us.


Element #41    Niobium

This soft silver-gray metal is used in steel and in nuclear reactors.  It allows neutrons to penetrate easily and withstands high temperatures.  At low temperatures it becomes a super conductor of electricity.  These characteristics suggest that this level acts as an energy sink.

We reach this level and we don’t try any more.  We think that we are at the top.  This is a spiritual plateau where we can’t seem to advance no matter how hard we try.


Element #40    Zirconium

This gray-white metal resists corrosion and is heat resistant.  The only way to reach this level is by loosing tremendous amounts of energy in the level below it.  This suggests that here is public service and public recognition.  Energy is given to the world and the world gives energy back in return.


Element #39    Yttrium

This silvery metal is used in the electronics industry and causes the red colors in garnet stone.  This is a higher level of public recognition and popularity.


Element #38    Strontium

This soft silvery metal is radioactive and dangerous.  It burns with a crimson flare and is used in fire works.  These characteristics suggest the “crash and burn” experienced by many celebrities.  The public no longer supports their efforts.  In fact, the public now opposes their efforts.


Element #37    Rubidium

This soft silvery-white metal is a catalyst and a fire hazard.  It oxidizes readily in air and reacts violently with water.  The destructive nature of this element suggest that this level belongs to public upheaval and revolutionary forces within the society struggle for supremacy.  This is truly a battle zone where the individual battles against the full force of society.


In summary, elements with five electron shells correspond to fifth “chakra” energies.  These astral level can be broken down into 17 distinct divisions.  These energies are essentially emotional energies.




This is the barrier or veil that separates forth “chakra” energy from fifth “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




Here is the foundation of physical and organic awareness.  This is awareness that we have a physical body and must take care of it in order to survive.




Here we face physical barriers and limitations on the astral plane.  We struggle to overcome our limitations and the barriers the world places before us.




This level acts as an energy source that sustains our astral bodies.  We receive energy from other astral “food” sources.  We give our surplus energy in exchange for the type of energy that we need.




Here is a complex astral world with complex astral life forms.  These life forms also have physical bodies.  At this level complex energy exchanges are worked out between different life forms to ensure their physical survival.




Here is the level of emotional pain and our “dark” self.  We confront those things about ourselves that we are ashamed of and that cause us emotional pain. Here are our personal demons and our personal hells.




Here is the level of emotional “love” and our “light” self.  We feel good about ourselves and others.  Everything is the way that we want it to be.  We are in love.   Everything is sweet and happy.




As our personal development evolves we learn to combine our “light” and our “dark” selves.  We find that we have a need for both of them.  We do that here at this level.  This is the level of bitter-sweet.  The events of our lives are very intense and move us very deeply.  We learn to love these “bitter-sweet” experiences.




After a while be begin to identify ourselves as spiritual beings and not as physical bodies.  We have an immortal “soul” that does not die.  This new perspective gives a “born-again” experience and we try to leave the physical world behind.




Even though we now think of ourselves as spiritual beings we still live in physical bodies in an imperfect world.  We struggle to protect ourselves against the disharmonies of the physical world with its trials and sorrows.  It is a constant battle to maintain our spiritual perspective.




At this level we tap into a spiritual power source and use it to maintain and strengthen our lives.  We find comfort and strength in our spiritual studies and meditations.




Here everything seems to go right for us.  Trials and problems seem to pass completely us completely and have no affect on us at all.  We seem immune to all negative influences.




This level is an energy sink and we fall into spiritual apathy.  We think that we are at the top and that nothing is left to accomplish.  We feel spiritual pride at our accomplishments and think we are better than others.




Here we enter public service and achieve support and recognition from the public.  We enter for the first time into the public limelight and we enjoy it.




At this level we are celebrities.  The public loves us and we can’t do anything wrong at all.  We are given power by the public to do things that normal people can’t do.




The public removes its support and we are no longer popular.  This is where celebrities “crash and burn”.  We have a spectacular fall from grace.  The energy that we have become used to is now given to someone else and we are ignored.




We struggle to regain the support and energy of the public by becoming political activists.  This is the level of public upheaval and revolutionary forces. We pit our will directly against society in an effort to change society.




Element #36    Krypton

This element is an  odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has four complete electron shells. Because it’s outer shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect. It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

This barrier separates forth “chakra” energies from fifth “chakra” energies. It also stabilizes forth “chakra” energies.


Element #35    Bromine

This reddish liquid is highly reactive and easily vaporizes into a reddish gas that has a strong irritating odor.  It is corrosive and poisonous and used as a disinfectant.  The poisonous aspect suggests that this level is a painful one.  The use as a disinfectant suggests healing and purging.  A killing off of our harmful and self defeating tendencies and thoughts.

The public no longer supports us or believes in us and we learn the bitter lesson that we must rely upon ourselves for our strength and not upon others.  Here is the foundation for self reliance and the pain of being alone.

This is the level of the heart and the blood system.


Element #34    Selenium

This element is required by humans and animals to convert fat and proteins to energy.  It is also a semi-conductor of electricity when exposed to light and heat.  These characteristics suggest that this level is an important energy source.

When we rely on ourselves we tap into this vital energy source and gain strength from it.


Element #33    Arsenic

This semi-metallic element is a deadly poison.  This suggests pain and a type of death.  Here we retreat into ourselves and reject others in bitterness and anger.  We don’t want anything to do with anyone else.  We want to be alone with our pain.


Element #32    Germanium

This grayish white metal is a semi-conductor and is very hard and brittle.  This suggests that in this level we build protective barriers around us to keep other people out.  We can reach out to others but they can’t reach in to us.  The energy only flows one way.


Element #31    Gallium

This soft silvery metal has liquid properties over a wide temperature range and is similar to aluminum.  Here we open up and reach out easily to others and allow them to reach us also.  We share easily with others and are liked in return.


Element #30    Zinc

This shiny bluish white metal is used in alloys and as a protective coating.  we learn not to take others so seriously and we are not so easily hurt.  We take things with “a grain of salt”.


Element #29    Copper

This reddish orange metal has been is use for a long time.  It is very useful and is vital to plant and animal life as well as a good conductor of electricity.  It is used to improve soil and to destroy harmful insects.

These characteristics suggest that this level is very beneficial and that it involves a free exchange of energies between astral objects and life forms.  Here is free and open communication and good relations with others.


Element #28    Nickel

This white metal is magnetic, polishes brightly, and does not tarnish.  It is also used in coins.  The magnetic aspect of this element suggest strong attractions and repulsions.  The vortex aspect of magnetic energies suggest an “obsession” with one person and a “forgetting” about anything else.

Here we fall in love with someone else and become “obsessed” with them and our love for them.


Element #27    Cobalt

This metal is both hard and magnetic suggesting barriers and frustrations in love relationships with wild ups and downs.  Spectacular attractions and repulsions.  Our armor and defenses get in the way of our love relationships.


Element #26    Iron

This silvery metal is easily magnetized and combines easily with other elements.  It is needed by plants and animals for life.  This brings to mind the saying that “love conquers all”.  Here our love for someone is so strong that it overcomes all obstacles preventing a successful relationship.


Element #25    Manganese

This brittle silver gray metal is required by plants and animals for strong bones and nervous systems.  The brittleness suggests both barriers and armor.  Its importance in bones and nervous systems imply structure and energy transfer.

This is the lowest level of thought and belief systems.  Here emotional “love” gives way to conscious thought.  We gain the ability to imaginatively think about things.  Our thoughts form a structure and barrier that contains energy.


Element #24    Chromium

This glossy soft metal resists corrosion and is bright and shiny.  It gives the color to gemstones.  This suggests bright and shiny thoughts that resist corrosion.  Here we find happy, colorful ideas and thoughts.


Element #23    Vanadium

This is an essential trace element and is strongly corrosion resistant.  It’s essential quality suggests a strong tie to physical life.  The corrosion resistant aspect allows the development here of a positive yet realistic conception of the world that resists the negative qualities of life.


Element #22    Titanium

This lightweight metal resists sea water and corrosion.  It is quite strong.  Thought structures and belief systems found here resist almost all attempts to change or alter them.  Here is our basic outlook on life, positive or negative.


Element #21    Scandium

This is a soft white metal.  Lack of any special characteristics imply this is a  neutral area with no notable aspects.  Here we can play around with ideas and juggle them around in any way we want.


Element #20    Calcium

This soft silvery white metal reacts readily with oxygen and water and is naturally only found as a compound.  It is essential for strong bones and teeth in living things.  The reactive aspect suggests a destructive quality that is essential for life.

Here our old “out molded” ideas and beliefs are destroyed and replaced with “newer” more successful ideas and beliefs.  This is our ability to change our minds and to learn from our mistakes.  This is indeed vital to our survival.


Element #19    Potassium

This element reacts readily with oxygen and water as well as with light.  It is highly reactive and needed by all plants and animals.  The violent reactive aspect of this element suggest that here our awareness is able to respond to emergency situations by rapidly escaping old behavior patterns and ways of thinking.

Emergencies require new behaviors from us.


In summary, this group of elements with four electron shells form fourteen distinct divisions.




This is the barrier or veil that separates third “chakra” energy from forth “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




Here is the pain of emotional loneliness as others abandon us to our own devices and resources.


This is an energy source as we tap into our own personal resources and become self-reliant.  We learn to take care of our selves and live on our own.




We reject others and retreat into ourselves.  We want to be alone with our pain and loneliness.




We build walls around ourselves for protection and don’t let others in.  If we want we can still reach out to others but it is a one way communication.




At this level we slowly open up to others once more and begin to share energies.  We accept energies from others.




At this level there is a good two way communication between ourselves and others.  We have good friends and relationships with others.




This is where we fall in “love” with someone and become obsessed with that person and exclude others from our life.

We experience magnetic attraction and repulsion.




Love conquers all here and we are able to overcome all barriers within the love relationship.  We receive love as well as give it.




The emotion of love gives way to thought energy.  We begin to think here and our thoughts are bright and happy.




Our thoughts are more realistic here and deal with our physical life and the events that we experience.  We think about ways that we can better ourselves.




This is the realm of speculative thought as we try out new ideas in an effort to gain advantages in life.  We try to think of new ways of doing things to improve our lifestyle.




Here is destructive thought and our ability to learn.  We gain the ability to destroy and discard unsuccessful behaviors and ways of thinking.  This is the ability to change our mind and wipe out old programming and replace it with newer more useful programming.




This is the level of emergency thinking where we need to explosively break out of old ruts and come up with something new fast!




Element #18    Argon

This element is an  odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has three complete electron shells.  Because it’s outer shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect.  It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

This barrier separates third “chakra” energies from fourth “chakra” energies.  It also stabilizes third “chakra” energies.


Element #17    Chlorine

This poisonous yellow-green gas has a strong unpleasant odor.  It is used to kill bacteria and reacts explosively with light, hydrogen, and water.  One of its uses is in hydrochloric acid.

The poisonous aspect suggests death or pain and an explosive destruction of astral forms.  This is the death of all emotions.  Only pure thought is allowed at this level and at higher levels.  Any emotional thought is painfully destroyed here.


Element #16    Sulfur

This yellow element burns easily and is used in bleaches, cleansers, and medicines.  All plants and animals require it.  These characteristics suggest the ability to “erase” or clean and heal imperfections in our thinking.  At this level we can sort things out that are emotionally painful to us.

Here we can distance ourselves from the emotional pain and regain some objectivity that we badly need.


Element #15    Phosphorus

This element is found in every living cell and is needed for life as we know it.  It helps us to store energy in our bodily tissues.

This level is a major source of energy for us and greatly increases our available life current or energy.


Element #14    Silicon

This hard dark gray element is a semi-conductor and is used in glass and insulators.  The semi-conductor and insulator aspect suggest that energy flow here is largely one way and directed.

This is the beginning of directed thought and deliberate planning activities that are of an abstract nature and not directly relates to physical life and physical activities.

Here thought takes on a life of its own and you have thought for its own sake.


Element #13    Aluminum

This lightweight metal does not rust, resists wear, and is very plentiful.  It is a good conductor of electricity.  This is the realm of abstract thoughts that have no matching correspondence in physical life.  Here are also archetypes and complex philosophies about life.  These are purely thought “constructs”.


Element #12    Magnesium

This strong light metal is vital to plant and animal  RNA & DNA because it activates many important enzymes.  It burns with a brilliant light and combines easily with other elements.

This suggests the “light bulb” effect that happens when we are illuminated with a new and brilliant idea.  This is a level where we find mental “illuminations”.


Element #11    Sodium

This soft metal is found in salt and small amounts are needed for life.  It immediately combines with air and reacts violently with water producing heat that often ignites hydrogen.

This is a very intense “illumination” that gives the experience of “light” and leaves no memory or idea behind.  It has “consumed” the thought processes and is considered a spiritual experience.  It is the complete destruction of the mental thought processes.


In summary, this group of elements with three electron shell has eight significant divisions.




This is the barrier or veil that separates second “chakra” energy from third “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




Here is the painful agonizing death of the emotions and emotional thought.




Here we have for the first time mental objectivity and the ability to distance ourselves from harmful emotions.




This is our primary source for mental energy and sustains our ability to think for long periods of time without fatigue.




This is the level of directed thought and the ability for speculative planning of potential physical events.




This is the level of abstract thought that has no relationship with the physical world at all.  Here we find thought for it’s own sake.  This is the realm of philosophy and archetypal ideas.




Here is creative thought and mental “illumination”.  New and innovative ideas are fashioned here to create new ways of perceiving reality.




This is the level of “spiritual” illumination and the death of the intellect. Here we are at the edge of our minds.




Element #10    Neon

This element is an odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has two complete electron shells.  Because it’s outer shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect.  It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

This barrier separates second “chakra” energies from third “chakra” energies.  It also stabilizes second “chakra” energies.


Element #9      Fluorine

This is a pale yellow gas that combines easily with other elements.  This level signals our entry into the spiritual levels and the development of our “spiritual” awareness or our higher self.

At this level we can easily combine and “harmonize” with other astral events and beings that before opposed us.


Element #8      Oxygen

This is a life supporting gas that makes most fuels burn.  The consuming element can easily eliminate obstacles and frustrations giving us a “spiritual” tolerance of others and of life’s difficulties.

Our problems no longer exist.


Element #7      Nitrogen

This colorless, odorless gas is a part of all amino acids and the building block of proteins.  It does not combine easily with other elements.

This is the level of our “soul” body and the seat of our individuality.  Here we make the final determination of where we begin and others end.  This is who we really truly are.


Element #6      Carbon

This is one of the most important elements since all living things are based on carbon.  Here we are a part of the entire living universe.  There is no sense of self at this point.  Only a sense of oneness with all things.


Element #5      Boron

This is an extremely hard element essential to plant growth.  The hardness indicates a barrier aspect associated with plant life.  Here is the “group soul” or guiding aspect of plant life in nature that protects plants and ensures the long term survival of them.


Element #4      Beryllium

This brittle light weight element has a high melting point and it absorbs and conducts heat.  The brittleness suggests that this is an astral barrier as well as an energy sink.


Element #3      Lithium

This is the lightest known metal and it is used in high temperature compounds.  It reacts with water to form hydrogen but does not ignite.  It is used in batteries.  Here we find the “collective soul” of humanity and its guiding forces.


In summary this level is divided into six distinct sections.




This is the barrier or veil that separates first “chakra” energy from second “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




This is the level of the higher self or “Christ” consciousness.  From this level we glimpse higher “truths” about life and the universe and return back to the mental levels with these insights.




Here is our “soul” body.  That part of us that is the immortal essence of who we really are.  Beyond this level the concept of ego is meaningless.  This is our soul personality developed over many lifetimes.  It is also known as the reincarnating ego.




Here is the experience of “cosmic awareness” where we experience being a part of all living things.  We are all part of the same “soul”.




This is where we find the group soul of plants, their protective and guiding intelligence.




This is where we find the group soul of humanity and it’s protective and guiding intelligence as well as the group souls of other animals.




Element #2      Helium

This element is an  odorless gas and one of the noble gases.  This element also has one complete electron shell. Because it’s  shell is complete it serves as a natural barrier in it’s astral aspect.  It resists attempts to pierce through it and is one of the veils mentioned in occult literature.

This barrier separates first “chakra” energies from second “chakra” energies.  It also stabilizes first “chakra” energies.


Element #1      Hydrogen

This is the smallest and simplest atom known.  It is also the most abundant element in the universe.  It is found also in the sun and stars.

This element forms what is known to occultists as the “light body”.  Only first “chakra” personality types can raise their awareness to the level where this “body of light” is formed.

“Helium” personality types function here on the surface or top of the helium layer or veil.  They are able to gain use and control of the lower astral levels by anchoring this “higher” awareness at the top of the astral veil where only “hydrogen” personality types offer any threat.

“Hydrogen” personality types can gain the ability to function in full awareness at all levels of the astral planes.  They can also travel in “awareness” through the cosmic circuit as light and electrical pulses.  Such experiences do not last long but a memory of them can be retained.


In summary, elements with one electron shell have two divisions.




This is the barrier or veil that separates first “chakra” energy from second “chakra” energy.  It “isolates” the “tank” current of this group of elements and tries to  maintain the stability of this level of the earth’s astral layers.




This is the level of the “body of light” described by  occultists.  Awareness at this level can give full awareness of the “cosmic circuit”.




This is the level of the cosmic circuit and of the joining of male-female soul mate energy.  It is the level of a form of plastic light that activates the body of light.




This is the level of pure magnetic vortex energies.  The beginning and the ending of all things.  This is the final resolution of all karma and the beginning of rebirth.




This is the level of pure light and electricity.  Any awareness at this level would be the awareness of being

a photon or spark of electricity traveling at the speed of light.
