Meditation on a Spiritual Being to Connect with their Strength and Energy

A great way to receive an extra strength in the time of need, is to focus or meditate on a spiritual being. It may be that sometimes we lack strength, will or inspiration to continue working on ourselves; this may come about for many reasons, such as karmic, making wrong decisions, slacking with maintenance of an optimal inner level etc.; whatever it is, we have to return to ourselves and give our all in the work; give our all in striving for the work to become a fully integrated part of

Sacredness of the Word and its Power to Transform us and the World

During one of his talks, Samael Aun Weor has said the following: The Consciousness sleeps in our larynx, we are unconscious of the words. We need to become totally conscious of the word. There are times when to speak is a transgression, there are times when to keep silent also is a transgression.

The Role and Purpose of an Esoteric School in Spiritual Awakening

In this age of information, discussions about whether a spiritual school or group is necessary for awakening are not uncommon. There are many who wonder how important it is to be in such an organized environment when it comes to spiritual development. It seems to me that majority of people in spiritual circles still prefer a group or school learning environment, though more and more people adhere to the mindset of not taking part in any group, but rather studying alone and creating one’s

Preparing for and Benefiting from a Mystical Night

In the Gnostic work, life and its diverse aspects are used for the awakening of consciousness. It is well known to anyone interested in the Gnostic-esoteric work, that this work entails using daily life in order to study one’s own psychology, to die to the egos, to develop concentration etc. And just like the day can be used for the spiritual work, so too can the night be used for the same purpose. The most basic way for that would be by doing a dream yoga exercise in which intention is

What to do in the Astral Plane: A Meaningful Use of Astral Experiences (Part I)

The astral plane is a plane or realm that forms a part of the fifth dimension, another part being the mental plane. Astral is our home in the more proper sense of the word, it is where we return life after life, and we also visit it in the hours of sleep in order to go through various things that our Being wants us to go there, things such as learning, experiencing, helping etc. Although in the morning we may remember only a small fraction of what happened there, it is a place that holds

The Force of Entropy (and how to Overcome it)

The force of entropy, or the law of entropy, is a universal law that is related to the dissipation of energy. In science, this is known as the second law of thermodynamics. Unlike the first law of thermodynamics that states how the Universe contains and preserves its force, the second law of thermodynamics says how that force is gradually lost. This law of entropy affects everything, all aspects of existence. Every building up of force will eventually result in its dissipation, unless

Journeying Eternity as a Liberated Soul (Ancient Egyptian Depiction)

One of the funerary texts that is part of the Egyptian Book of the Dead is a book called the Book of Traversing Eternity, which describes what happens to a person who incarnates their Divine Being while still alive. In Ancient Egypt, when someone reached a high spiritual level by incarnating various parts of their inner Being, they would often add “Osiris” or “Horus” to their name, which is a spiritual title rather than the eternal name of the Being that we become aware of once we reach the

Balanced Use of the Psychological Centers for Longevity and Inner Success

One of the key instruction for advancing on the Path of ascension is to dissolve the egos that manifest in the five psychological centers, from moment to moment, and thus keeping these centers balanced so that each one can use its own energy for daily needs. These five centers are intellectual, emotional, sexual, motor and instinct. They are also known as the three brains: intellectual, emotional and sexual/instinct/motor brain. To work on oneself profoundly is to be in the state

A lot has been spoken about Lucifer, a lot of fear has been conjured up by the name that has been associated with the anthropomorphic Satan throughout the Christian history.

Purifying the Chakras with Sounds, Intention and Visualization

There are many practices out there that entail working on the development of the chakras. The latter are described as energy vortexes on the astral body that fulfil multiple purposes within the multi-dimensional level of the human organism, a lot of it boiling down to being the centers of transformation of a higher type of energy into the one that the physical body can use for its daily needs. Besides that, the chakras are also non-physical senses through which we can sense beyond what the

A Reflection on Buddha’s Advice to do Charity if one cannot do the Work

The real road is the Path that takes us deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the Being, into the inner and outer reality. To make progress on it, there is a lot that one needs to change in one’s life, a lot to sacrifice and a lot to replace. One’s life has to become centered around that higher goal, otherwise the life devours us, and we become detached from a deeper spirituality.

The Role of Doubt in Spiritual Development

Doubt has its role both in the mundane and spiritual life. Regardless of its source, it is there to steer us away from a danger, to make us question, or to create an opportunity so that we can learn more about ourselves. In the spiritual work, many students are often assailed by doubt, making them question if the spiritual path is the right for them, and if the esoteric topics one learns are true. As today’s upbringing and education often have very little to do with discovering one’s true

Liberation from the Laws of Nature as the Goal of the Great Work

The Great Work, referred to as the Magnum Opus by the medieval alchemists, is that which has the ability to transform a human being by inward purging of all that is heavy and low, and by creating the garments of the Spirit, so that within remains that which is true and to, also within, merge with its divine source. A work of such magnitude must have many goals, not just one, but the main ones would be related to things such as knowledge, freedom, peace, happiness etc., all of which could

Are Dreams just Dreams? Some Reasons to take your Dreams more Seriously

In today's world, the phrase “It is just a dream” has become a common thing when someone wants to diminish the value of what happened during the hours of sleep. We have become ignorant of the value that the dream information carry, looking at it as something nonsensical and solely from the point of view of the brain processing the information from previous days. Even modern psychology is seeing dreams in a very limited way, mostly looking at it from the point of view of the subconscious
