♥ The Ascended Master Akasha :

Today I wish to introduce a new idea to you. It is part of the Divine Plan. It is something that you agreed upon and that as you entered upon the great path of resurrection you would enter into a conscious daily conversation with your I AM Presence that is your true great God Self.

These conversations don’t have to be long but I do encourage you to start writing some letters to your Presence, using a journal and you write one page. The whole idea is to enter into a daily dialogue with your Presence and be able to chart what unfolds so that you can start charting the difference that it is making.

I say to each of you, as long as you do not succumb to the appearance side of life and teach yourself that in all things there is always solution and to make that such a sovereign attitude, unbreakable in your being. To all things that appear in the world and that appear in people’s lives there is always solution.

Start talking to your Presence a little bit more strongly, more intimately, more personally and bring to the Presence that which you face each day.

Letters to the Presence can be a wonderful experience where you are communing:

“Oh Beloved I AM, I just love to greet you. You are my true glorious God Self. Oh Beloved I AM, come forth and express your Presence through my joy. Express your Presence through the intelligence of my mind. Come forth and express Thy Will through my feeling side of life. As I go on about my daily activities, Beloved I AM that I am, I seek not to do one thing without being certain that Thy Presence is expressing through my mind, my thoughts, my feelings, my actions, my decisions, my desires, my hopes, dreams, my aspirations. I look to you Beloved I AM, Infinite and Divine Consciousness, expressing through my being and world and in all that I am seeking to accomplish.

And where there are challenges, Mighty I AM Presence, I look to you. I look to you for a solution here. And when I enter out into the world, when I’m working alongside others and there are challenges that rise up or disagreements or arguments, let me remember that Thy Presence abides in everyone else’s heart whether they know it or not. I know it and that’s the difference; I know it. | Track 18 | And it is no longer acceptable to me when I am out working in the world not to bring your presence into everything that I am doing.

I am ready for miracles. I am ready to observe your Presence being the solution to every problem, to every appearance, to every disagreement, whatever that is, I just love to look to you, Beloved I AM, to come forth and be the revelation, to be the answer. Connect me at all times with the right people, in the right place, at the right time. Offer Thy guiding Presence. I wish to come to that place that I know that when I am thinking I am thinking constructively; that when I am thinking there is a vein of Higher Intelligence that is expressing through my thoughts, through my intuitions, through my field of resonance and sensitivity.

In my Resurrection up into Thy glorious Presence, I offer to you that which are factors of resonance, intuition, sensitivity, to be that which is taken up by you. And Beloved I AM, when I am out in the world make sure that I am shielded, that I never take on the discord that is generated by others. Seal my in Thy great Cosmic Tube of Light that makes me invisible, invincible to the discord that yet remains in the outer world.

Oh Beloved I AM, keep me ahead of time constantly aware of all that I might face and always, always, always send forth Thy Presence out in front of me. Beloved I AM, keep me mindful and in deep comprehension of the words of the prophet, ‘There can be a Presence that goeth before me and doeth all things’.

Oh Beloved I AM, I know that Thy jewel abides within my heart and the nature of your expression is Perfection. Beloved I AM, I have heard that Akasha will decree from her temples that you now begin to unleash your Presence, your Power and Perfection from Thy great God centre within and that I am in this year of 2011 to call upon you, ‘Beloved I AM inside me, come forth and RELEASE, UNLEASH, TRANSLATE, INTERPRET your Perfection.’ I understand what this means. I am acknowledging Thy Presence within. I know that your Presence is Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience, All-Knowing, All-Loving, everywhere present, Infinite Perfection.

You are awake, in fact, it is your presence inside my heart that has awakened me and you are awake. And by my efforts, by all the meditations in the past, every time I’ve turned my attention within, every time I’ve acknowledged, every time I have decreed, your Presence has grown within me, awake and active, and now your Presence, in this year, 2011, the first year of our stepping onto the path of resurrection, the next great activity is to unleash Thy Presence, Thy Power throughout my being and world.

How will this occur? Well Beloved I AM, my Ascended Master teachers are reminding me that not even you, nothing can get into my outer world of form, of experience, of substance; nothing can get into my outer world including you, my own Beloved I Am Presence, without that first abiding inside my consciousness. So when I say to you, Beloved I AM, I acknowledge that you are awake, I acknowledge that you are active and I am using my free will, I am speaking to you, my own great God Self to UNLEASH the power of your Perfection. INTERPRET and TRANSLATE your Perfection through my consciousness. And it is through this great activity that you will unleash the Christ I AM ultimately as the only acting activity within my consciousness.

Beloved I Am, in these letters that I am writing to you each day, Akasha and Asun and many of the Ascended Host are coming forth and teaching us in these end days. Akasha suggests we use this phrase, ‘Beloved I AM within my heart, come forth and unleash, interpret and translate your Perfection into and through my consciousness.’ Do I have an understanding of this? Oh Beloved I AM, let me try because I understand that to have that understanding inside me, it can then unfold outside of me.

I have a consciousness and I have a much greater understanding today of consciousness than I had yesterday. I understand that consciousness is infinite, yet we have not experienced the infinite nature of our consciousness because we, as human beings, fell into a deep dream, a nightmare, and dreamed the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In this, we as creator beings, created something that never existed in our consciousness before we ever came to the Earth.

We, as creator beings, used your Power, Beloved I AM, as creator beings to dream opposites, to dream duality and to dream the experience of fear. I understand now. I am awake. I understand that fear has contracted, limited and placed my consciousness in a box of belief systems fostered by a belief in two powers. In my process of awakening, Beloved I AM, I have discovered that you can offer me the Sacred Fire, and beyond you, I can go to the Great Ones and the angels to get that Sacred Fire to sweep into my being and world to begin, by my command, to take that fear right out of my being and world; right out of my consciousness so that my consciousness can begin to do what it was intended to do – expand and once again be infinite.

Oh Beloved I AM, in these days of resurrection I am having great epiphany. I am having great awakening. I am leaning upon those mighty words, ‘I AM here, I AM there, I AM everywhere’. This ‘I’ that speaks, this is my True Self. This is you speaking and this mighty statement reveals that I AM is consciousness and the only way this mighty statement can be and be fulfilled and experienced is because I AM is Infinite Consciousness; therefore there is no place that your consciousness, that I am an individualization of, is not present. Aahh . . it feels good to awaken and to be aware of these things. Yet Beloved Presence in the letters that I am writing to you each day . .”

And by now this might be 4/5 letters; you only have to write a page but my idea here is that this, being part of the Divine Plan, that you would start writing a letter to the Presence each day and tomorrow you would pick that up and continue your letter. Do you understand? There is an unfoldment here dear hearts.

And so as I continue to write to you my Beloved Presence. I’m really interested in comprehending, in understanding the words that Akasha seems to use with purpose. She is inviting us to acknowledge your Presence but she’s also encouraging us to use certain phrases and terms that are new. Akasha is saying for us to call upon Thy Presence and Power to unleash itself and interpret your Perfection through our consciousness. I’d like to examine this phrase with you, Beloved I AM, to make sure I understand inside me what this means so that it can unfold in my outer life.

I am gaining a greater appreciation now that I really ought not to try so hard to correct things in the outer world; that I ought first to seek to make the change inside me and then allow that change to unfold in the outer world experience. I get this now and I make that commitment more and more that if I wish something to show up in my outer life that I must first plant the seeds of that inside my consciousness. I get that.

But right now, Beloved I Am, I’m really interested in this phrase that Akasha is using, ‘Come forth Beloved I Am and UNLEASH Thy Power and INTERPRET, TRANSLATE your Perfection through my consciousness.’ Beloved I Am, let’s explore this idea.

I know that I am conscious. I am aware that I have a consciousness. I have a facility, a faculty of consciousness that I can use and I know that I use that every day, yet, I have not really allowed that consciousness to go too far and within my consciousness are many things. Within my consciousness is all my thinking, my feeling, every belief that has come my way, everything my sight has ever registered. I understand that even within my consciousness is intellect. I understand through the studies that the intellect can be likened to a library. It is the great storehouse of all information that has come to me through my faculties. What I have seen, what I have read, what I have heard – all that has come to me through the sense faculties of the experience side of life is what stores itself in the intellect and becomes the vast library as a reference point if there is something that I wish to go into that library and refer to for something that is a future decision. So I understand that this is part of my consciousness – intellect.

Now, Beloved I AM, I heard years ago a dictation from Akasha on the Holy Spirit vs. the ego and I understand that these are two activities of consciousness as well. And today, Beloved Presence, I’m going to approach this in the following way. The ego is likened to the male energy and the Holy Spirit is likened to the female energy – Light and Love. I understand, that because of the ‘fall from grace’, that the Holy Spirit, the Love of consciousness, has not been plentiful within my consciousness. Without the Love, without that Spirit, the male energy, the ego is thrown out of balance, thus the term, ‘altered ego’. In my awakening, in my choice for peace, in my remembering to live from the heart and all these wonderful goodies, I trust Beloved Presence, that these wonderful faculties you gave me are now not altered; that the ego is back in balance and the door into my consciousness is open and the Holy Spirit is releasing itself into.

So, Beloved I AM, let me see if I have this right. The role of the ego is to file all data that comes to me from the outer world through the senses – sense of sight, touch, hearing etc. I understand that this is the true role of the ego that all that comes to me through the senses, that you store this in the intellect aspect of consciousness.

Now, what I’m really interested in, Beloved I AM, because I understand for the most part my ego is back into a balanced state and this is a good thing. So as I seek to comprehend this phrase that Akasha says to us these days and I’m realizing there’s a number of other things I must understand first. The phrase that I’m seeking to really comprehend, Beloved I Am, again, is this phrase Akasha asks us to greet you.

“Beloved I AM, you are awake and active within me and I am calling upon you to UNLEASH your Power and Perfection, TRANSLATE, INTERPRET your Perfection through my consciousness.” This is what I am truly interested in interpreting.

So as I continue to write my daily letters to you I am trusting that I am gaining a deeper conversation with you and opening the way for an amazing epiphany and so I have been rethinking and remembering what the intellect – it’s the great storehouse that the ego in its balanced state is to store in the intellect all that is coming through the faculties of sense. I’ve got that right. So what is the next thing perhaps Beloved Presence that I might desire to remember. Aahh yes, the role of the Holy Spirit in consciousness vs. the role of ego. I’ve reviewed the role of the ego in a balanced state so what is the role of the Holy Spirit? (deep breath) I will just pause on this for a moment . .

Lesson Three~Energy

Understanding Energy 
All energy starts as consciousness, a self awareness that nearly every religious explanation & every scientific theory believes had to have stemmed from nothing. Nothing being a place where our consciousness drops off a big cliff, it is of course, Unconsciousness, unknowable by its very definition. But then as this awareness, born from nothing, gets focused on one thing over another, energy is created. Concentration creates energy. Where we place our focus becomes our reality. Energy flows where concentration goes… It’s a miracle, like childbirth, only more subtle.

Energy is energy, yet energy has different intents, or natures. We can see this to be true by looking at all the many expression of matter there is in our world. Energy in its most subtle expression is not self aware, it is pure awareness, or Pure Consciousness. From this we can see that matter follows consciousness & believing is seeing, not the other way around: Energy flows where attention goes & this is how Reiki works; you must have concentration & increase your level of awareness of subtle feelings as they move through you. Something we are all capable of. Then when you call Reiki to you with great concentration, you step out of its way & trust that the universal flow of energy in the very universe you reside in is intelligent because its connected to all other things. Many people have a difficult time accepting this because they see only those things which separate us, which explains war; as such many people are not Reiki healers.

So how can something come from nothing? The best way I can explain it is this. Nothing, like everything else has a nature. It holds within it its own eternal & infinite nothingness. By this very nature the potential for everything exists within it, even to become, something. So in this sense it was inevitable that something was bound to come into being, that this vast emptiness holds within it all possibility for all expression of life.

You may ask where does God fit in? The concept or reality of God doesn’t have to fit in for this to make sense, yet it is clear that if there is a God, in whatever way you believe this entity to exist, that he too spawned from the Nothingness, as the very first, thus most powerful consciousness that ever was or ever will be. Most Eastern Religions see things this way. Or you could see that God, Is this very Nothingness that we speak of: Vast & Unknowable.

But we are now approaching ground that is beyond the scope of this course & certainly not necessary for you to be successful Reiki healers. I encourage you to fit all this information, somehow, into your own ideas of Spirituality. I assure you that whatever you believe is right for you so long as it has enough flexibility to include Reiki & is allowed to grow & evolve as you live & learn from life. Your own unique views on life, love & spirituality are a welcome addition to the Reiki community.

We are three part being, this we all know: In our bodies all energy begins as this Pure Consciousness which upon co-mingling with our own experiences or subconscious held thoughts becomes mental energy, now focused on one thing over another, this energy ‘pools’ & often gets amped up by an additional dwelling & concentrating on it while it is waiting to be expressed & released. This is called Emotion or Energy in Motion. This makes up your Emotional or energetic Body. The movement of this is a conscious or semi conscious act we call motion, or the physical expression of energy. Many have come to see that the Physical Body we reside in is really just a collection of these very emotional & mental energies that vibrate so fast that they become a solid, or matter.

So in summation, we are three part beings, & each part has its own make up, or body, we have a physical body, an emotional body & a mental body. Reiki works as we align these three bodies, when our thoughts are aligned with our emotional intent & we place our hands upon another transferring the energy from the Universe, through us & into another.

Let’s examine how this is possible. Nothing, by its very definition is unconsciousness. Yet it is within this very medium that a conscious energy exists & can move freely from one person to another, across great distances, the phone, into the past & future as time exists only as a concept, agreed upon by consensus reality. The only moment that is real is this one right, NOW. Thus the past can be changed & healed by affecting that change now. The future can be altered by applying the right energy to it now. So Reiki works to heal the past, present & future & is not limited by time or space, distance or element. Meaning it works underwater Lol.

But we do know a little about nothing because it is represented as the space between things. We have air, water & even fire sometimes, various elements less dense than solid matter yet allow for the passage of matter through them. We have various gases in the atmosphere that are so subtle they are invisible. Then we have a vast expanse of outer space that proves to us that life on Earth is truly a rare &, therefore in my mind, a special case in the universe. Consider this, a mountain is not known to us because of its mass, rock or ridges, we know where a mountain begins & ends because of the space around it. As Michaelangelo once said, an artist need only visualize what’s inside matter then carve out everything that is not that.
Quantum Physics is the branch of science that has already done studies which have shown many of these ‘spiritual’ concepts to have a real basis in science: That the space between us is not empty at all, just less dense. Also the more empty the space, the more clarity that space contains, as evidenced by it being easier to meditate with your eyes closed or concentrating on a single fixed or flickering object. The emptier the space, the less resistance the space contains, as evidenced by the atmosphere vs. outer space.

If the space between us is not empty then it is only a small matter of belief to see how we are all connected, by energy: Connected, far more intimately than anyone of us previously imagined. We may call this energy anything; I choose to call it Unconditional Love: Unconditional being the word that explains why good things happen to bad people & visa versa. Unconditional is the Karma of energy that everything that comes around, goes around. Karma is simply an explanation for the movement of a connected energy coming back into balance with itself. So a nuclear explosion, a lover crying over a broken heart, a stabbing back pain from over exercising & an orgasm have much more in common then we previously thought!

The reason why I choose to call this love is because this is something that I feel deeply. I know that this love stands on 4 pillars, Humility, Gratitude, Patience & Respect, & these are the very values which allow for everything to be separate, yet co-exist & coalesce. All creation occurs in an act of exchanging energy that all humans call love, or love making. This need not be your name for this Universal Energy; many simply call it the Source. I just wanted to share my own view at this juncture. As I said earlier, it is more important that you formulate your own ‘flexible’ & ever ‘evolving’ belief system then it is to adopt anyone else’s.

Other forms or names of energy, Prana, which is a Hindu-Yoga understanding of the life force in air, it enters us through our lungs & vitalizes all things. It is understood that our ‘spirit’ is connected to the very air we breathe, just try not breathing! Then there is Chi, as understood from Chinese medicine since 2000 BC. Used & effectively applied in Acupuncture & Tai Chi as an energy force that runs through our meridian system, recently accepted by Western Medicine as more subtle, yet as real as our Central Nervous Systems.

Then there’s Kundalini, an energy that runs up the base of the spine through our Chakras. A very powerful expression of emotional energy that has the power to release & clear all blockages, fears & resistances, quite forcefully I might add. I have come over the years to understand that this energy is still, all Reiki: The terms Prana, Chi & Kundalini may very well describe the method of travel of this subtle energy, rather than being a different energy altogether. The only exception is that Kundalini is so amped up that it can even be dangerous when released prematurely. So another difference is that energy can be powerful or weak. This is true even of Reiki Healing. You can be a powerful Reiki Healer or a barely effective one.

“As energy travels different pathways it takes on different characteristics. Just as one man who spends his life climbing mountains will have a different nature than a woman who spent her life sailing the oceans”.

I share this because back when I first got certified as A Reiki one I struggled with a way of understanding how Reiki works. At the time I did not understand the nature of magic so I doubted it. Now I see how magic is no less ’magical’ when there is an explanation for it.

Love Lost?

Love Lost?
Love lost is never so,
it’s merely redirected.
Passion’s wings can rise again,
with flight of love effected.

Love’s perfection removes fear,
the imperfection shows connection
to some endearing spirit, albeit
lacking variable, minus equation

The memories of love felt as such
are ever catalyst for
the sending of sweet energy
on loves lost, altered course.

Peace for memories of the past
let the peaceful memories last
with grace allowing for
the present open door.

She is a Goddess

A goddess is a woman who emerges from deep within herself. She is a woman who has honestly explored her darkness and learned to celebrate her light. She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the magnificent possibilities within her. She is a woman who knows of the magic and mysterious places inside her, the sacred places that can nurture her soul and make her whole.

She is a woman who radiates light. She is magnetic. She walks into a room and male and female alike feel her presence. She has power and softness at the same time. She has powerful sexual energy that’s not dependent on physical looks. She has a body that she adores and it shows by the way she comfortably lives and moves in it. She cherishes beauty, light and love.

She is a mother to all children. She flows with life in effortless grace. She can heal with a look or a touch of the hand. She is fiercely sensual and fearlessly erotic and engages in sex as her way to share with another in touching the divine.

She is compassion and wisdom. She is seeker of Truth and cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She is a woman who knows that her purpose in life is to reach higher and rule with love. She is woman in love with love. She knows that joy is her destiny and by embracing it and sharing it with others, wounds are healed.

She is a woman who has come to know that her partner is as tender, lost, and frightened as she has been at times. She has come to understand the scars of the boy in him and knows that together, love can be the relief, the healing of their wounds.

She is a woman who can accept herself as she is. She can accept another as they are. She is able to forgive her mistakes and not feel threatened by another’s even when attacked. She is a woman who can ask for help when she needs it or give help when asked. She respects boundaries, hers and another’s.

She can see God in another’s eyes. She can see God in her own. She can see God in every life situation. She is woman who takes responsibility for everything she creates in her life. She is a woman who is totally supportive and giving. She is a Goddess.

How To Date A Goddess Wombman

WRITTEN BY- https://www.facebook.com/notes/aurora-kozinn/how-to-date-a-goddess-wombman/397930230241346

Dear Men, There are many kinds of women. Each type- New Agers, Hippie chicks.. whatever category you connect to — has it own energetic vibration.

Goddess Wombmen, for example, are the most seductive and the most empowered wombmen in the world. They love their body. They live in their body. And they fully express their divinity through their sensuality. It is her nature to do so.

If you are a man interested in dating a goddess, be fair warned, she is Kali- Aphrodite. As Aphrodite the goddess of love she will envelope you with kisses and juicy sexual practices. She will glow and you will be in awe of her glow. But , because she is Aphrodite, her love will span beyond you. If she wants to be sexual with a man, this is her prerogative.  She cannot be contained by any man– her “containment” is only found in her deep devotion to her guides’ voices and her connection to spirit.

Her Kali is cutting through your illusion of what a woman “should” be.  A goddess is never “your” woman, but this goddess will bow down at your feet if you display to her you ARE the sacred masculine.

Kali takes you on a journey to discover your own sacred masculine potential. When goddess Kali shows you her dark moon, hold space for her. She will challenge you to become Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Shiva…

She will cut away your beliefs that “This is how women are” in regards to the old paradigm.

All a goddess knows is love without abandon. She believes in living by emotional nurturance, support, ecstatic and sensual dance, and sacred love making.

To date a Goddess, you must be sensual, support her independence, allow her to love freely, and honor her sacred sexual dance.

The God/dess knows that Sacred Masculine men are equal, and the counterpart to Goddess Wombmen.

To be clear, if you’d like to be with a goddess, you must be GOD.

Universal Laws?

Question: I completely understand that, many times, life happens for us to learn a lesson or lessons. I can absolutely see that in my own life. Recently, I am reading more and more on the Universal laws of which the Principle of Belief and Principle of Correspondence are just two. So my question is this: if life situations are here to help us learn and grown spiritually, and we will not always get want we want, how does that work with the Universal Laws of like attracts like, ” as within, so without” or the Law of Belief that states, “whatever you believe, you will see.”

Answer: That is a great question, and it actually addresses our multidimensionality demonstrating that there are many things that effect our reality. Unfortunately, many of us are just now awakening. For many, many lifetimes we have not been aware of the universal laws because we chose to look away from our spiritual self and divine guidance, and chose to follow the advice of our ego. Due to many lifetimes of disconnection from the spiritual realms, we are now currently experiencing the rebalancing of our energy or karma that we have created. Energy always seeks balance. Some of this karma was created from previous lives, but a lot of it has been created from THIS lifetime.

For example, review your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and actions five years ago….were they in balance? Most likely they were not, and because of this you are experiencing the ramifications of your previous level of energetic vibrations you were emitting from your energy field. So if you want to have a better future, you will need to create a better now and that means to follow and understand the universal laws, as well as, clear out the old energetic distortions within your energy field that have not been healed and continue to draw negative experiences to you.

Oftentimes, we will have hidden distorted beliefs and subconscious patterns we are not even aware of ~ this will require self introspection in order for you to be able to observe the patterns within your life…. and it will also require you to be brutally honest with your self about your distortions. These distortions are your learning lessons and each lesson will need to be mastered before you have proven that you no longer need to experience that type of interaction anymore.

One of the best ways to move through your karma and soul lessons is to love yourself and give gratitude for the opportunity to advance and evolve your soul. Be willing to SEE your selves working within your being….then you will be masterfully playing the game of life. Once the lessons are learned and your energetic frequency is raised ~ through the expansion of your heart chakra ~ then you will be gifted with the power of magnetism and manifestation and the “ask and you will receive” and the “believe and you will see” will be very evident to you because your life force energies will have been restored to a higher level of manifestation.

However, until your thoughts and feelings are brought into balance and are focused for the highest good of all involved, you will be limited in your abilities to create things quickly because this ability to manifest instantaneously could be highly destructive for yourself and the Earth.

The Goddess is Back and Sex is Sacred

There is a current renaissance occurring around how we view and experience our sexuality, much of which can be attributed to the re-emergence of the goddess into our modern western culture.  For most of us growing up in a Judeo-Christian tradition, finding our way to god through sexual activity was unheard of.  On the contrary, celibacy and austerity has long been the map pointing the way to the sacred.  Engaging in wild passionate sex to seek an intensely spiritual experience was entirely incongruous.

But slowly, as the goddess awakens in a western consciousness, with her comes a softer awareness that the sacred may indeed wear a female guise.  The shame and guilt traditionally attached to our bodies and sexual experiences is being replaced with a remembering of lifetimes past when deity was female and sex was for worship.  For thousands of years patriarchal religions have told us that power is vested in a masculine god that has no physical form and that worship requires denial of the flesh. Well what if I told you that the sacred actually lives in your body and that engaging in conscious acts of sex can lead to transcendent experiences of bliss and self realization.

A long time ago before we worshipped a god in the sky, most cultures across the planet worshipped a goddess.  The Great Mother Goddess was seen as the sacred made imminent in the natural world, expressed in the diversity of all forms of life and death, in alignment with the cycles and seasons of the earth – she was mother nature.   Women’s bodies were able to perform acts of creation in the form of birth.  This creation was mirrored in the animals and the crops and the ancient ones recognized that women’s bodies were a vehicle for new life and as such, were deemed sacred.  Yes folks, god was a woman!  Prehistoric artifacts including statues of fertility goddesses and painted images in caves and on pots attest to the worship of the feminine mother principle from as far back as 40,000 BCE.

Hieros Gamos (or sacred marriage) rituals invoked the transcendent qualities of the goddess through the act of sex, allowing access to the sacred feminine through the physical body of a woman.  In the goddess temples, these women were known as sacred prostitutes or priestesses.  Viewing sex then as a sacrament through which the divine is accessed, aids in understanding how vastly different attitudes towards sexuality were in our ancient past compared to patriarchal religious ideology.

In ancient Mesopotamia in the temples of the Goddess Inanna (circa 4,000 BCE) the sacred prostitutes took the title of “Hierodule of Heaven” which meant ‘servant of the holy’.  Men would pay great sums to make love with the goddess via the body of a sacred priestess.  These were holy women, highly educated and trained women, able to channel the energy of the goddess in public and private rites.

In Babylon there was a hierarchy of high-ranking priestesses known by various names including Quedishtu, Naditu or Entu, right down to the tavern or street whore called Harimtu.  Goddess Ishtar bestowed her blessings on all who participated in the sexual act howsoever it be performed.  In the Old Testament these temple priestesses are later named the whores of Babylon.

From about 2,000 BCE the temple system that had once been the main form of worship across a great many cultures of the world, began to wane with the rise of patriarchy.  A new sky god came to power and he was masculine and without a body.  The rise of Abrahamic religions that worshipped this wrathful God, found no place for the feminine to hold power and so the era of the goddess began to wane and knowledge of the power of sexuality went underground.  As Christianity began to flourish, the church fathers understood that access to personal divinity gained through sacred sexual rituals, negated the power of the church, and must be tightly controlled.  As women were the ones in which this power was vested, their authority was broken and their bodies made dirty and sinful and so the temples were destroyed and the goddess fell from grace.

It has been 5,000 years or more since the goddess was at the height of her power, but with her return to a modern consciousness, we are remembering how to experience the divine through the sacrament of sex.  The goddess offers us a new religion (actually an ancient one) where sex leads to enlightenment and the current shame and perversion can be transformed.  The goddess is back, and sex is sacred.

Sacred sex in the 21st century is suddenly big business and the goddess looms large as we revisit the past to uncover the roots of traditions that honoured her.  You will find her in the explosion of neo Tantra that offers a stylized western experience for those who want to heal their relationships and experience a full body orgasm.  You will find her in a Wiccan or shamanic ritual, or a pagan magic sex rite.  She is nature herself speaking to you through an ayahauscan drug taking ceremony.  She is the healing found through a sex surrogate, or in the arms of a modern day sacred prostitute.  She is the rising kundalini serpent awakened in an ecstatic dance class.  Whichever path you may wish to traverse, you can access her powerful, untamable sexual energy as it directs you back into your body in order to transcend it.

Whilst I have spoken about the patriarchal religious ideology that negated the ways of the goddess and taught us shame around our bodies and sex, this is not to blame the past, but rather provide an understanding of the bigger picture.  The decline of a female god and rise of a masculine one, has been an evolutionary stage in our human existence as we evolve collectively on a global and individual basis.  The consciousness on the planet is ready now for the thousands of years of patriarchal masculinity to find divinity residing in a feminine form.  The goddess reminds us that once, all sex was sacred and openly and freely exchanged in full knowledge that our bodies were beautiful and that transcendent states of bliss were natural.

Seek her out her with open body and heart, she is acceptance and she is healing; she is the goddess and she will change your life.

Feel the other’s body, feel the other’s energy flowing towards you and be merged in it, melt in it. It will come…..A man feels that something has gone wrong if there is no ejaculation…. Nothing has gone wrong! And do not feel that you have missed something; you have not missed. In the beginning it will be felt as if you are missing so……mething, because the excitement and the peak will not be there. Before the valley comes you will feel that you are missing something, but this is just an old habit. Within a period, within a month or three weeks, the valley will start appearing, and when the valley appears you will forget your peaks. No peak is worth this. But you have to wait, and do not force it and do not control it. Just relax….It is good, helpful, if you breath deeply, not fast but slow, breathing very easily—being at ease. Don’t talk….feel what is happening. …Float effortlessly. Then only will the valley appear, and once the valley appears you are transcended. Once you feel and realize the valley, the relaxed orgasm, it is already transcendence. Then sex is not there. It has become a meditation—a samadhi. OSHO

Sacred Sexuality and the Guru

Throughout the long history of the teachings concerned with sexuality and religion, there has been a need to preserve the knowledge in a sacred trust in order to protect its sanctity and purity. This is the basis of the venerable tradition of master and disciple, guru and student. Unfortunately, there have been instances where individuals have utilized the sacred knowledge to feed their lust by seducing disciples or creating dens of vice. In modern times this mentality has become widespread. It is easy to find schools of “Tantra” or sacred sexuality that are merely swingers clubs or orgies. Let it be clear in your mind, friend, that these sad spectacles have nothing to do with the real tradition of sacred sexuality, and instead represent its polar opposite. Throughout the histories of all civilizations we find instances of cults and temples where sexual depravity was celebrated and worshipped as divine. One only needs to remember Pompeii and its grotesque frescoes and halls of public fornication, or the sick indulgences of the pompous elite of ancient China. It is a great tragedy that humanity only remembers these groups, and does not remember the chaste priests and priestesses who preserved their purity and chastity while also blossoming the flowers of the soul through the upright tradition of sacred sex.

Sacred Sexuality and the Guru

The Seductive Guru

There is perhaps no crime more horrible than the abuse the so-called “guru” heaps upon his devoted disciple. With promises of illumination, the sprinkling of special attention, twinkling eyes and other seductive manipulations the so-calledteacher brings one after another into his private chambers. This crime against the soul is a travesty of epic proportions, because the naive disciple, after falling into disgrace and shame, is also traumatized and wounded in their very soul, and who knows how long it will take for them to see sex as it should be seen: as holy, divine, and pure? Nonetheless, for any such soul, there is hope. Spiritual traumas can be cured.

Real sacred sexuality is a magical act whose power is only realized upon the basis of love between one man and one woman. This is not the word “love” that we throw around these days, even using it in reference to potato chips or cars. Real love is something magical, divine, that perplexes artists, poets, and mystics, but that is only truly known by those it has alighted upon. This love – real love – is a divine power, that vanishes the instant any animal desire arises.  Lust, desire, or mere physicality only accesses the animal aspect of sex, not the Divine. The presence of the Divine within us can never be found in orgies, casual sex, or any sexual contact that lacks the true psychological and spiritual connection between man and woman, which is love. In such events, we only find the animal elements.

In order to awaken the Kundalini, man needs a woman. Yet, we must warn that the initiate must practice Sexual Magic with only one woman. Those who practice sexual magic with different women commit the sin of adultery. They do not progress in these studies.

Unfortunately, there are certain individuals who utilize sexual magic as a pretext for seducing women. They are profaners of the temple. Such men inevitably fall into black magic. We warn all women to guard against these sexually perverse characters.

There are also many women who, under the pretext of supposed profound Realization of the Self, unite with any male. What all these passionate women really want is to satiate their carnal desires. The world is always the world, and since we have been divulging the great Arcanum there have appeared, as one might expect, those swine who trample the doctrine and then die poisoned by the bread of wisdom. The cult [religious practice] of sexual magic can only be practiced between husband and wife. We clarify this to avoid seduction, abduction, carnal orgies, and “sanctified lustful passion.” – Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony (1950)

Sadly, there is a wide variety of ways that the sacred teachings are being corrupted around the world. Yet, we find certain characteristics that help us identify them and protect ourselves and those we love.

In the infrasexual [inferior sexuality] sphere of Lilith abide those who hate sex, for example, monks, anchorites, preachers of pseudo-esoteric type sects, pseudo-yogis who abhor sex, nuns, etc. All such infrasexual people (by the mere fact that they are infrasexual) often have an affinity with people of intermediate sexuality. Thus, it is not difficult to find homosexuality within many convents, religions, sects and schools of a pseudo-esoteric type. Infrasexual people consider themselves to be highly superior to those of normal sexuality. They are disdainful of people of normal sexuality, considering them inferior. All of the taboos, restrictions, and prejudices that currently condition the lives of people of normal sexuality were firmly established by infrasexual people.

We heard about the case of an old anchorite who preached a certain pseudo-occult doctrine. Everyone venerated this man considering him to be a saint. Apparently he was a master and people worshipped him. Finally, one poor woman discovered the truth, when he proposed a sexual union against Nature to her, supposedly in order to initiate her. In reality, this anchorite was an infrasexual. Nevertheless, this man had taken the vows of chastity. This man mortally hated the Arcanum A. Z. F. (sexual magic). He considered it to be dangerous. However, he had no problem proposing extra-vaginal unions to his devotees because he was really an infrasexual. Who would have doubted this man? Apparently, he was a saint. This is what the people believed. His followers considered him a master. He hated sex. Yes, he mortally hated sex.

This is a characteristic of infrasexual, degenerated people. The worst of the matter is that they consider themselves superior to people of normal sexuality. They feel they are super-transcendent, and they manage to seduce people of normal sexuality, converting them into their followers. In our mission, which is to divulge Gnostic esotericism, we have had the opportunity to study infrasexual people. We often hear them repeating the following phrases: “You Gnostics are selfish because all you ever think of is your Kundalini and sexual magic.” “You are sexual fanatics.” “sexual magic is purely animalistic.” “Sex is something very vulgar; I am a spiritualist and I abhor all that is materialistic and vulgar.” “Sex is filthy.” “There are many paths to God.” “I live only for God and am not interested in the rubbish of sexuality.” “I follow the doctrine of chastity and abhor sex,” etc. This is precisely the language of infrasexual people. They are always self-sufficient, always so proud in their feeling of superiority to people of normal sexuality.

An infrasexual woman who hated her husband said to us: “I would only practice sexual magic with my guru.” She said this in the presence of her husband. This woman had no sexual relations with her husband because she supposedly hated sex. Nevertheless, she was willing to practice sexual magic, but only with her guru. She had an affinity with the guru because he too was an infrasexual. This is the “saint” mentioned earlier in this chapter, the one who enjoyed suggesting to his female devotees to have sexual unions, against Nature, with him.

We heard about the case of the arch-hierophant who hated women and who often uttered phrases such as this: “Women! I kick them with my feet.” He preached a doctrine, and his followers adored him as if he was a God. He was always surrounded by adolescents. Thus, this is how he spent his time, until the police uncovered everything. He was a homosexual, a corrupter of minors; yet, he had the same pride of all infrasexual people, which is feeling super-transcendent, ineffable, and divine. – Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony (1950)

Sacred Sexuality and the Real Guru

So in these times of widespread corruption and deceit, how does one find an authentic teacher and guide?

The path is narrow, strait, and frighteningly difficult.  One needs the Guru-Deva, the director, the guide. In the Heart Temple we will find Hari, the Being.  In the Heart Temple we will find the Guru-Deva. – Samael Aun Weor

In all of the real schools of yoga or mysticism, the best teachers always knew that the real Guru is within. Thus, the only purpose of the physical teacher was to guide the student to learn how to contact their inner teacher. Although many religions and groups have forgotten this essential point and instead want to foster dependency upon them, all of the essential scriptures explain that the real Guru (Christ, Buddha, Atman, etc) is within. The real Guru is your own Innermost. Therefore, it is wise to go directly to the goal. Through practical techniques of meditation and dream yoga, anyone can learn how to receive guidance from their own Innermost, thereby avoiding the grave danger of falling into the hands of a false guruteacher, or group.

So, in this day and age, it is very dangerous to just simply follow someone. What is best is to seek the Inner Master. The best thing is to follow our “I Am.” The best thing is to learn how to travel in the Astral Body in order to visit the temples of the White Lodge and to receive the teachings directly in the temple. – Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries (1956)

Teachers and guides are necessary, but not in the bedroom or the home. Home is a sacred temple, and the bedroom is the Holy of Holies. Only the man (the Priest) and the woman (the Priestess) can enter the sacred chamber of love.
