Spiritual Numerology Life Path Period – Master Number 22 – A Rare Find

In numerology, a tradition bound by spiritual evidence-the relationship between numbers and living things, all of us have three cycles, or Life Path Periods in our lifetime. To determine a person’s three Life Path Periods, one simply needs a person’s date of birth. Furthermore, if someone’s 3rd Life Path Period is 22, they are in rare company. Life Path Periods Based upon a person’s full date of birth, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Life Path Periods are derived from an individual’s month, day and year of birth, respectively. In numerology, all numbers reduce to a single digit, with the exception of the master numbers of 11 and 22. Therefore, to determine each Life Path Period for you, simply add the …

Tarot As a Spiritual Path

Though it is often considered just a fortune-telling device, Tarot cards are actually part of a much larger, centuries-old spiritual movement devoted to the discovery of the Higher Self. This movement, called the Western Mystery Tradition, encompasses and explores the many deep spiritual pathways found outside established western religious institutions; the treasure sought is an ever-deepening perception of our own humanity and relationship with the Divine, achieved by the process of understanding and transforming our own selves. Because of this approach, the Western Mystery Tradition is inclusive, rather than exclusive; it views all religious systems, including Tarot, as symbols and metaphors for the same Truth. Its wisdom is taught mainly through books and private meditation, and in small mystery schools …

Man, the Microcosm; Part 5

Once the third-eye has been developed with the help of Kundalini, the Chrism oil, the secretions and magnetism of the head glands, and the brain-dews, man would be able to function in the higher worlds with full awareness. These various substances and energies are instrumental to man’s physical resurrection or etherealization. They are collected, blended, and released into the body through the third ventricle of the brain which, in one sense, represents the Holy Grail: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” (Psalms 23:5) Hindu yogis call the brain-dews “soma” or “amrita.” It is the nectar or ambrosia of the gods. Manuals on yoga such …

Man, the Microcosm; Part 4

The Principle Nadis & Kundalini The etheric body, according to Hindu mystics, is said to be composed of 72,000 nadis, or subtle nerves. This figure as the actual number is questionable; it is more likely to be symbolic and should not be taken literally. Sushumna, Ida and Pingala are the major nerves of this vital body. Sushumna is the etheric counterpart of the cord of the central nervous system in the spinal column. Ida and Pingala correspond to the two branches of the autonomic nervous system situated along side of the 33 segments of the vertebrae. Ida and Pingala are rooted in the perineum. They rise and flank each side of the sushumna, and they terminate in the openings of …

Man, the Microcosm; Part 3

At Man’s present evolutionary stage, his consciousness is polarized in the Astral body, the seat of his emotions. Average people function with their emotional-desire nature predominating over all of their thoughts and actions–the desires of which are detrimental to the health of the physical body. It is by treading the spiritual Path that will repolarize Man to the Mental sheath and the Ego. The Mental sheath in the microcosm of the average person, is not considered a body as yet for it is still in the developing stages–it is still loosely structured and is embryonic. In this world there is much abuse, misuse and even non-use of the mental faculty, and this does not in the least assist the Mental …

Man, the Microcosm; Part 1

Of all the mystical symbols known to Initiates, Man (we use the term “Man” to refer to both genders) is considered as the most ancient among them. Man possessing the masculine and feminine natures, is the epitome of the Cosmos on a microcosmic scale. Within Man’s being lies all of the forces, powers, and principles of Nature; embodied within Man are the laws of the universe; mysteriously written within the sacred heart you will find the source of the sacred scriptures of the world. Mystery schools of the past and present regard that being created and considered “good” by the Archcreator as a reflection of the macrocosm; hence the term “microcosm” to refer to the totality of Man, and the …

Magickal Shrines of Mustika Pearls

Magickal mustika pearls/bezoar stones with their innate spiritual power and force are sacred items that enhance the auric and spiritual atmospheric quality of shrines and altars. They attract to themselves spiritual intelligences and beneficent cosmic rays that bless the home. With the presence of these magickal pearls, shrines and altars are not just simple sacred places in the home, they are transformed into power-spots that the devotee can seek refuge for empowerment, inspiration and regeneration at all levels. As they contain pranic energies, cosmic and geophysical forces accumulated and developed by biological-systems (animals, plants) and etheric beings/environmental events, mustika pearls–whether in a crystalline or opaque form–the site where they are installed becomes a strong focus for divine planetary and cosmic …

Let’s Synchronize Watches

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves.” Isaiah 62:6 Recently I was given an opportunity through which the Lord reminded me about aspects of intercessory prayer which I had forgotten. Perhaps you have been in the place I was and can identify. I admit I am a slow learner when it comes to spiritual matters and need repeated instruction to get it to “sink in.” My spirit was unsettled about a sister in Christ and I was prompted to pray for her. Nothing appeared to be wrong. I was not notified of …

Is It God’s Will To Be Wealthy?

Why are there people who seem to attract unlimited wealth into their lives, while others, equally as capable or talented or worthy, suffer from poverty and lack? Attracting wealth has nothing to do with education, status, talent, environment, intellectual ability, physical prowess, or geography. ANYONE, regardless of their background or circumstances, can attract wealth into their lives. For many years I separated wealth from the “Christian” lifestyle. Somehow I thought that living a godly life meant living a life without material wealth. It wasn’t until someone showed me in the Bible that it was the will of God for ALL of his children to be prosperous and healthy. There is nothing in the Bible that says we must live in …

Indonesian Shamanic Methods of Fasting & Austerities

Fasting and asceticism are essential practices in Javanese Kejawen and shamanism–especially Indonesian shamanism. Most of the unusual and unique powers acquired in Indonesian occultism are dependent upon the mastery of these disciplines with their many forms and variations. Another important factor that must not be overlooked in the acquisition of these occult powers is the knowledge of the correct timing such as the proper month and day which magickal rites and disciplines are to be commenced, and this is intrinsically linked with the Javanese calender; this however, will not be dealt with in this article for it is beyond its scope. We will mainly focus on the many variations of fasting and the austerities carried-out in Javanese mysticism/occultism. Fasting as …

How To Make A Dowsing Pendulum

A pendulum is a very useful communication tool for spiritual inquiring. When used in conjunction with a chart, it can be used for dowsing and divination. It can be used for the following: 1. Provide Yes/No responses and answers to queries. This is similar to muscle testing or applied kinesiology. 2. Provide more accurate answers to queries, such as degree, intensity or percentage. There are commercial pendulums available on the market. Usually they can be bought from shops dealing with metaphysical or new age stuffs. However these shops are quite scarce and can be quite hard to find. Alternatively, pendulums can be ordered online through websites selling them. This article is about making a do-it-yourself (D-I-Y) pendulum for dowsing. If …

How To Be A Spiritual Atheist

A spiritual atheist? Perhaps it’s a strange concept if you only think spirituality has to mean a belief in a god. Do the two have to be related? Many people think of the historical Buddha as a spiritual person, but most don’t know that he never expressed a belief in a god. He even discouraged his followers from such “speculation,” preferring that they work on their salvation in this world. Computer Spirituality Imagine a computer that has begun to get so complex and powerful that it starts to ask questions “outside the box.” It starts to become conscious. The first thing it would realize is that for all its computing capacity, it is still very limited. The humans who use …

How much of the Bible is literally true?

If you don’t believe the Bible literally, does that mean you must conclude that Christianity is based on biblical myth – literally fiction and stories passed down, generation to generation, from our ancient ancestors? That the only way to read the Bible is to read it metaphorically or metaphysically? Absolutely not. There’s great history recounted in the Bible. But the Bible is more than just history. It is a book of faith written by people who had undergone a transforming spiritual experience or who believed they had “seen” their God at work in their history. By “transforming” I mean an inward turning-around: things/ideas/values that were not important to you now are; those that were of great significance now aren’t. Biblical …

Heart

It is the heart that swells you up.It is again the heart that sinks you down. Feelings of elation or depression ,that of joys and sorrows spring out of it. If the heart upbeats at times , it sinks low on other occasions. You are impelled and elated by feelings for the welfare of the nation, for the love of mankind, but often you go down with feelings of hatred, jealousy and revenge. With positive feelings you are apt to rise high but negative emotions hurl you to the ground and you are buried with shame and disgrace.As the thoughts are in the heart ,so is the man . It is the feelings that grow up in the heart that …
