Moon, Universe, Space, Milky Way, Galaxy, Planet

There have been some strange and difficult energies lately to put it mildly. Some of my dreams have been quite heavy as well. This past year I joined a local spirituality group and have watched it slowly be forced out of business due to lack of member participation. In the end there were only about five of us trying to keep a meeting place going and it simply was too much. Our yearly lease is over at the end of July.

My local Masonic lodge connection is similar in that during the summer we only meet once a month and with my new dog I have been unable to meet. There is definitely a sense of frustration at the lack of member participation in anything spiritual. And the Covid scare has certainly had a huge negative effect on any group activities. So any local activities seem to be dead in the water.

That leaves online platforms like PaganSpace . I really tried to find a pagan/earth based community and there was hardly anything to choose from! Don’t believe me, check it out yourself! If you want to meet other pagans, Wiccans or Druids online you will have a difficult time of it. And the same wilting effect seems to be happening at PaganSpace as well. Owners of several groups have simply abandoned their projects and people are not stepping forward to fill the vacancies!

Even more difficult is a pronounced reluctance for discussion. People will cut and paste items of interest they have found on the web and not share anything significant or personal. Almost everything was head trippy and I finally realized that the young people had lost their connection with Gaia and most of the old timers that knew what they were doing have passed on. The young people don’t know how to reach or work the lower levels and they live in a fantasy make believe reality for the most part. It is cute to be pagan. It is cute to be a druid. It is cute to be a witch.

I remember a vision that I had several years ago about Gaia’s ascension and how it would happen. I envisioned a cyber net that filtered out all the organic metaphysical and magickal things and traditions. In this war between technology and the organic technology would win… But OAK and Organic Gnosticism was based upon science and technology and it could safely pass through the net! I see that vision coming true in today’s world! The organic is dying, but Organic Gnosticism continues to grow and remains untouched. It is the next higher octave of magickal working and is not controlled or influenced by technology. Organic Gnosticism is a valid option for continuing the organic path in today’s digital world. And oddly enough it lends itself to being taught online!

Just a reminder. My new Organic Gnosticism Course is now online and it is free! I am enjoying putting it together and having the chance to really teach some of the things that I know to others. I’m also looking forward to feedback so that I can continue to improve this course and make it the most powerful soul development course out there! I’ve currently finished the first five modules.

Organic Gnosticism Course Online Live!

Well folks, its here! At least the first four modules. I was torn between getting a few more modules done or allowing some people early access and my compromise is to let you, those who have followed me the longest, to begin early if you are interested in this amazing course. In a month just before the next full moon I will advertise this on my PaganSpace site.

It has been a life long dream of mine to have a mystery school and I was beginning to think that it would never happen. But I try to allow myself to be guided in these things and recently I was closing out some accounts that my wife had. As her spouse I was the only one with the authority to do it and I felt that she would approve of my spending that money on this Online Course which we both dreamed of. So I can offer this course free for a couple of years and then it needs to find a way to support itself.

That is why I could really use your help! For those interested in my work it would be very helpful if you would enroll in this course and give feedback and discussion on what works and what needs to be improved and perhaps what is missing. To be successful this course needs to hit the mark dead on! You all can help me to refine it to the highest quality possible.

I believe that I can complete this course in one year of weekly modules. Each module would have five or six lessons depending upon what seems most appropriate. This would be material that I wish I had known about years ago when I started upon this journey. That includes completely new material that I am just now in the process of discovering!

You have been following my posts for several years and know what a mess it is to try and find anything! Organizing this material into a course allows it to be easily found and referenced, but it also allows me to share more about why the material is important and a chance to answer questions if things are not completely understood.

The main tool that will be used in the course is a weekly meditation that will be given for a specific purpose. In the beginning this will be the OAK Energy Ball Meditation as I discovered it and used it myself, one chakra at a time. After we have moved on to portal work I will be adding pathworking meditations based upon the Tarot designations I just discovered through the Aurum Solis.

The use of these meditations is a very powerful tool that makes you familiar and comfortable with the altered states of consciousness and working with energies. It also helps to activate the chakra centers and harmonize them so that awareness can easily shift from one level to another. This is hands on experiential knowledge.

The difference between group portal meditations and individual meditations is profound! In group portal meditations each member of the circle helps every other member and the advancement is rapid. Individual meditation work is the final proof of competency though! Ultimately you need to be able to do things on your own and that is why both forms of meditations will be offered.

Each module will also have a historical section that will track the Organic Gnosticism movement up through the ages so that we can understand it better and be proud of it. There is nothing really new under the sun and we are simply taking what has always been know to a higher level of understanding.

Each module will have a scientific/psychological section that will attempt to place ancient concepts within a modern framework that is effective and empowering. A perfect example of this is placing the Hermetic Kabbalah upon the Periodic Table of Elements, something that has never been done before.

Lastly each module will have a section on self empowerment, beginning with Assertiveness Training and Anger Management. These are techniques and concepts that can be put into immediate practical use!

By now you all know me. Most of what I have to say is written in as few words as possible. But it would be really helpful if you would step up and help me find the best words! This Organic Gnosticism Course can be the most powerful and effective tool for personal empowerment out there! To do that people need to be impressed by it enough to recommend it to their friends. With your feedback and suggestions I can make it that impressive!

Hope to see you there!

Landscape, Reflection, Lake, Mountains, Dusk, Full Moon

Between the summer solstice and the fall equinox this year we have three full moons! [what I mean is three complete lunar cycles as there will be four full moons] This is unusual and powerful! What it means is more bang for the buck! There is going to be a tremendous harvest this year! And I say that with a grain of salt because where I live we are suffering the driest summer that I can remember! A person just told me yesterday that the headwaters of the MIssissippi river have run dry! Too much sun, too much solar energy!

Things are burning up and not only lawns. There will be lots of crop failures for the small farmers that don’t water their fields. So what kind of harvest will they have? We have only had two real rain showers since spring. All the small ones have gone past us to the north or the south. I take Valentine to the dog park and she plays in clouds of dust!

We are accustomed to thinking of harvest in good terms, but there is a poor harvest as well and for many this will be a poor harvest of tremendous implications. What I sense is that this is the make or break point in what we have all been going through these past years.

For those of us that have been working on ourselves this can be an incredible time to get ahead. Things will just fall into place to support us. Let me give some examples out of my own life. Last spring I was drawn to find some type of social media site to join and I found Pagan Space . I am enjoying my time there and once more I have been posting my Organic Gnosticism material there in the hopes of gaining readers. But a couple days ago I was prompted to check out ecourses and discovered Thinkific as a platform that offered to host online course creation and it has always been a dream of mine to create a mystery school out of the material I’ve gathered over the years. They offered a limited free program and I started messing around with it. I really liked it. Then I felt prompted to settle Annie’s bank account. Annie passed away a little over a year ago and I was the only one that could close out her account and as her spouse inherit what she had left. It wasn’t a lot, but it was some and I suddenly felt very clearly that she wanted me to use it to create that online mystery school that we both had always dreamed of. There was enough there to create a mystery school online and keep it going for four years at which time it would need to be generating its own income.

So I jumped off the cliff and committed myself to creating and offering Organic Gnosticism as an online mystery school. I’ve completed the first module and am working on the second. I will probably go public with free enrollment in a month just before the next full moon! The course will go public and I will continue to create modules to keep ahead of everyone but only one module will be available per week. This is called the “drip method” of offering online classes in which only a few lessons at a time can be accessed.

Production of Der Orchideengarten will continue and some translation projects that I’ve completed for Sidereal Press are due to come out soon I hope. I’ve got to finish translating a story for an anthology that another publisher wanted to put out and which I promised to have ready. So in many ways it seems that my harvest is going to be a pretty good one. That is how things are stacking up right now. I will let everyone know more about my online mystery school when I get more modules finished. I already have most of the material and only need to polish it up a bit. I will be offering this course for free at least for a couple years to encourage more people to try it out. I hope you might be interested as well. I’ve posted most of my stuff on this blog over the years but it is not organized or easily available and doesn’t come with instructions. This course will be offering all of that and more!

Getting back to the three full moons, I sense that Organic Gnostics will benefit the most from this harvest. It will be pretty clear who benefits and who doesn’t. My advice is to look forward to opportunities and if they seem right follow up on them. Take that risk. This is a time of change!

Connection to Gaia New Pathworking #1

This is the first in a series of pathworking meditations that I have created using the new OAK system that makes use of the complete Periodic Table of the Elements. This first pathworking connects us to Gaia as the Cosmic Womb of all life rebirthing us into a new life. This connection to Gaia is important for the Druid tradition as well as any magickal traditions. I have created this meditation for my own use, but welcome others to use it as well!

Many of you may be wondering about my last two posts that show a chart of the astral planes. So I need to explain a few things about Organic Gnosticism or OAK as I once called it. So I am going to mention some very specific things that are new about Organic Gnosticism and have never existed before. Let’s begin with the Holy Kabbalah.

For years people have tried to merge the Holy Kabbalah with the Periodic Table of Elements and have not been able to. This is something that I managed to do with the help of the Reciprocal Systems Theory of Dewey Larson. His system not only shows how all things originate with the photon and vibratory motion; it also shows how all things exist in two universes at the same time; the space/time universe and its reciprocal, the time/space universe. This automatically lends itself to a physical experience and a non-physical experience.

Our awareness moves between the far reaches of the cosmic and within our body. Awareness acts both as an expanding wave and it acts to form and limit our bodies. Quantum physics and theories about the horn torus also bring new evidence to the soul’s ability to exist in two worlds.

The seven noble gases were a perfect match for the seven planetary worlds. The special characteristics of Hydrogen; north/south rotating magnetic energies and the photon/electron completed the ten worlds on the tree of life. That was pretty easy, but it was in the nitty-gritty details of atomic isotopes that the various trumps fell into place. Certain elements like carbon and silicon had dual isotopes with different characteristics and these special elements were the markers of where one tarot trump ended and another began is some cases.

The original photon as Source became the All Father and the final noble gas, Oganneson, became the Womb of All Creation.

But what I didn’t understand was that there were two versions of the Holy Kabbalah. The Jewish one was based upon a system of 22 letters and the Greek one was based upon a system of 24 letters! Interestingly enough the Jewish Kabbalah was missing a symbol/letter of two of the five elements (earth, water, air, fire & spirit). It only had letters/symbols for the elements water, air and fire. This inevitably led to the creation of a Kabbalah in which the earth goddess was missing, but also the spiritual side of things as well. It led to the Holy Kabbalah of the Rational Atheists who lived in their heads and didn’t believe in spirit. Unfortunately it is the Jewish Kabbalah and all its system of correspondences that people are most familiar with.

But the Greek Kabbalah was based upon a merging of the Egyptian and Greek mysteries and had an alphabet of 24 letters as did the ancient Futhark runes. The Greek or Hermetic Kabbalah was arranged into three sections or secret schools. The outer mysteries were based upon the five elements of earth,water, air, fire and spirit. The Inner Mysteries were based upon the planetary energies and the top secret teachings of the Spiritual Hierarchy were based upon the constellations of the zodiac and their energies.

The bottom line is that all the Tarot Trumps were arranged differently as we see in the chart I constructed. This new sequencing comes from Jean-Louis de Biasi, current Grand Master of the Aurum Solis. You can see how this fit into my own scheme of the elements, separating them into three groupings, elemental, planetary and zodiacal. I need to flesh out the new correspondences, but you have the complete picture which should also be able to include the druid path as it also is based upon 24 runes.

Essentially this is the destruction of the Holy Kabbalah based upon the twenty-two letter system! All the known systems of correspondence based upon the twenty-two letter system are now null and void!

Something else that I did was to simplify the path of development of the soul and put it into modern words with a modern context. That perfectly described the path of development of the male in the various mystery schools. I then created the opposite to see if that corresponded to the female path of soul development and it also fit! When joined together they represented the common romantic love relationships that develop our souls. These essays disclosed the hidden secrets of the tantric path for the first time! It is our love relationships that allow our souls to grow and flower!

Then with the addition of the portal meditations and group workings it became possible for individual members of the group to assist each other with the opening and development of the chakra centers even when they are not physically present! This is followed by an awareness shifting meditation that solidifies and integrates all of the non-physical bodies into one soul body for the very first time.

None of these things require any special beliefs, rituals or memberships. I think that’s doing pretty good!

I have this as a word document that is properly colored but it didn’t transfer over. This is my first merging of the OAK system with the Egytian/Greek Kabalah and the Oagdadic Tradition which holds the #8 as sacred. Even #s are feminine so this is the Goddess Kabalah. The Outer School studied the elemental energies and the Inner School studied the Planetary energies. The Spiritual Hierarchy studied the Zodiac. I may make some changes later after I’ve done more research.

What I’ve learned so far! My latest adventures with the OBOD and Aurum Solis have had some interesting side effects that have also helped clarify and crystalize things on my own personal path. So what I would like to share is that the most important things a person can do to advance their own personal journey are these things:

Any portal meditation works to connect you to the two ultimate power sources, the Spiritual Light and The Cosmic Womb of Creation. When you connect to these two powers you can begin to channel energy instead of generating it with your physical body! As you open up more energy channels and eliminate toxins and repressed energies this tends to feed upon itself and allow you to make even more progress! The tapping into these two cosmic power sources has traditionally been called high magick because it is far more powerful than being limited to the energies produced by the physical body itself.

The portal meditations are conducted as if you are part of a group and other members are there with you as you assist them and they assist you in the opening and blending of each chakra energy! This collective working of the portal meditations allows each member to be in effect soulmates to the other members of the circle. This means you don’t need to wait to find that special person whose energy harmonizes with your own. The energy of each member of the circle harmonizes with the energies of every other member. Group work becomes much more powerful and effective than solo practice in the tapping in to the two cosmic power sources and the awakening of each individual chakra.

Each individual chakra needs to be fully activated and each individual astral body needs to be permanently activated as quickly as possible. Again, the group portal meditations work to do this in a collective manner and may also lead to the permanent activation of each individual energy body. These things are the first phase that needs to be completed before moving to the second phase.

The second phase is the one that I am working on right now. I am working daily with the full chakra activation meditation which allows me to shift my awareness from one energy body to another and smooth out any wrinkles or vulnerable spots. The final goal is to totally merge all seven energy bodies into one completely integrated soul body! This work consists of healing individual levels and balancing them, sending energy out for any magickal purpose and whatever you choose to do or explore.

Working from this integrated soul body is like being surrounded by a magickal mist in which you can find or create or heal anything that you focus your attention on! The ultimate goal is to have your awareness permanently exist at this level. That means smoothing out all the wrinkles in the various levels and making the energetic contacts between the two cosmic power sources as clean and pure as possible!

So in summary I would suggest any beginner to start with a portal meditation until they are very comfortable with it. Then attempt the advanced chakra activation meditation. These two meditations are all a person requires to completely integrate and empower their soul body. All the rest is perhaps nice to know, but not needed.

I intend to be working with the advanced chakra activation meditation for a long time because it is so powerful. Right now I need to do it just after I wake up in the morning before I eat anything. Otherwise I tend to blank out or slip away to something else and loose my focus on the meditation. So this is definitely a difficult meditation to perform correctly.

In a way these two meditations summarize my entire life’s work! This is probably the ultimate simplification of the completion of the magickal and mystical paths! I don’t think they can be simplified down any more than this!

Forest Fire, Angel, Road, Rain, Flame, Ghost, Forest

I’m starting to understand some things through my daily meditations and workings. The Rosicrucians have their Celestial Sanctum which I am tapping into each day and it exists as high up into the light as I can go, well, let me rephrase that. It exists as high up as I can go where I can find and mingle with other souls. Right from the very first day of membership members are encouraged to visit the Celestial Sanctum so it is not something only high initiates can do. But it is a meeting place where members of the Great White Brotherhood can meet and share energies. All members are encouraged to go there for energy and inspiration.

The Druids have their sacred grove and we select if possible an actual location where we can visit in our meditations. I actually chose the dog park where I take Valentine every day. It is part of a regular park and does have some trees in it. But it also has a lot of dog energy! When visiting there I not only tap into powerful earth energies, I also tap into lots of dog energy. Somehow that makes it a sacred spot for dogs…

The druid meditations also tap into earth and sky and those energies meet in the heart. So the focus in these meditations is in the etheric and lower astral although the spiritual is included in the sense of the sky and solar energies.

My Aurum Solis meditations seem very much like my energy ball meditations embellished with some ritual and invocations. They do recognize an energy center about two inches above the head and an higher one as Source. They also recognize an energy center where my feet touch the ground as well as Gaia herself. What this tells me is that my own work is simply a variant of what the Aurum Solis and Ogdoadic tradition has done for centuries. I probably picked it up through past life work and simplified it instinctively. The Aurum Solis and the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids resonate deeply with me. I’ve discovered that the Odgoadic tradition is based on #8 as a sacred number and the Jewish Kabbalah is based upon #7 as a sacred number. Odd numbers are male and even numbers are female so the Ogdoadic tradition is more aligned with goddess energies. The Ogdoadic tradition is also based upon the Greek and Egyptian which has 24 letters in the system while the one based upon the Jewish alphabet only has twenty-two letters. It does not have any representation for the element earth or spirit! I was born on the 24th and twenty-four has always been a powerful number for me. Of course 8X3=24!

I’ve also been trying to do the solo energy center meditation where I shift the point of awareness from one energy center to the next and I’ve been zoning out. It’s probably because I’m doing it too soon after eating or when I’m tired, but it is a bit frustrating because it was so simple to do for awhile. Now I really need to go back and master it.

I’m getting an image of the unseen worlds that the various traditions have always known. Each has their own way of teaching it. I will try to say it in modern psychological terms. We each have an awareness that exists within the physical world and a totally different type of awareness that exists in the non-physical worlds. But this is the kicker- for most people our physical world awareness is badly fragmented and not integrated. Instead of one awareness, we change between valences, feeling like children when we interact with our parents, feeling like adults when we interact with our own children and we are different people when we are at work and when we are among friends. This is just an example of fragments or masks which we put on and wear daily.

There is a different type of fragmenting going on in the non-physical realms. We have separate awarenesses for each type of energy, abstract spiritual, concrete spiritual, abstract mental, concrete mental, upper emotional, lower emotional, physical organic and etheric. Typically none of these awarenesses communicate with each other and exist in totally separate worlds.

The ultimate goal is that all of our physical awareness fragments find each other and integrate to form a complete sense of self which can then build a bridge of communication with all the other awarenesses on the non-physical side of the veil. And of course these non-physical awarenesses need to find a way to harmonize and live in the same world together as well!

The portal meditations try to do this and that is what makes them so powerful! My physical awareness is learning to exist on the other side and it seems to move through a mist as it creatively and magickally interacts with the astral planes. The harmonization is not yet perfect, but each day brings me a bit closer! When that harmonization is complete I will live in a magickal world! In a way I already do!
