I’ve been researching the Druids and the Celts and was intrigued by a reference that suggested they might have been influenced by the Samothrace Mysteries and the Phoenicians who they traded with. So I ordered a book called “The Great Gods of Samothrace and the Cult of the Little People” by Carl A. P. Ruck. It was just published a few years ago in 2017 and I felt it would contain the most modern information. I’m about half way through it but far enough to make a few generalizations.

The Samothrace Mysteries were pre-Hellenic Greece and lasted over a thousand years. They were very famous and many influential people took this initiation and it was very popular. It was also open to any gender, or class of people. Many wealthy parents sent their children there as a rite of passage into adulthood. So it was an event that could take place any time of the year without any special planning or studies. You just needed to show up and it was offered to you.

In general this initiation offered protection and safe passage through the storms and tempests of life and involved the partaking of a wine laced with a hallucinogen like LDS and a Bacchanalian event or sex orgy. That pretty much sums up the book and like almost all modern researchers there is no recognition of the spiritual, occult and metaphysical truth behind such initiations or what they really conferred upon their initiates. But this research does give important clues as I will attempt to show.

My own path in life has allowed me to travel both the mystical and magickal paths to their conclusions. I have permanently activated all seven possible astral bodies including my etheric body and function normally on all planes. The magickal path for me has been a tantric one and I know quite a bit from personal experience. This allows me some insight into these things that is not available to those researchers who rely exclusively upon logic and reason for materialistic solutions to all mysteries.

First, the Samothrace mysteries were Goddess related and led to the establishment of the Eleusinian and Dionysian mysteries which came later and were also wide spread throughout the ancient world. Being Goddess related they were undoubtedly led by Priestesses and sexual in nature.

The tantric path is natural for women and leads to the relatively easy and quick development of the etheric body which is the non-physical body generated by the root chakra. It is also the body which is the most magickal as it functions below physical awareness. So you have a group of women that are working with sexual energies in sacred mysteries on an almost constant basis. They undoubtedly all had very strong abilities to work all types of magick! And by this I mean real magick!

Etheric energies or root chakra energies:

Located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae, the root chakra is responsible for your sense of safety and security on this earthly journey. Balancing the root chakra creates the solid foundation for opening the chakras above. Imagine that you’re laying the foundation for a house in which you’re going to live for a long time. A solid foundation embedded in firm soil will provide the stability you need to create a home filled with joy for years to come.The root chakra is comprised of whatever grounds you to stability in your life. This includes your basic needs such as food, water, shelter, and safety, as well as your more emotional needs such as letting go of fear. When these needs are met, you feel grounded and safe, and you tend to worry less day to day.

So this is what the Samothrace initiation did for initiates. It completely opened the root chakra center and permanently activated their etheric body! In doing this it did grant them safe passage through the storms and tempests of life!

Life was very hard in ancient days and people were much closer to the earth than they are today. So they probably already had many of the 32 possible awareness points already activated at the etheric level. They just needed an extra burst to make the final earth connection to the womb of life and these tantrikas were able to provide it for them.

In working with sexual orgasm energy two orgasms close together are enough to rupture the astral planes. What happened at Samothrace was much more powerful by using at least three orgasms in a group setting combined with an hallucinogen to completely burst through any barriers and a rebirth experience that permanently activated the initiate’s etheric body. From an occult perspective this meant lasting protection and the ability to do magick as well.

Now that we understand how the Lunar, Solar and Daily cycles work to balance events and objects within the Spiritual and Magickal Planes so they can manifest within the Akashic Records as physical events its time to take a look at the big picture. Our entire universe and we ourselves emerge from a trinity of Sources which create the framework of what we experience as reality.

Everything, including ourselves, started out as a simple photon or spark of light and and its counterpart an electron. Because of the constant addition of new photons within our universe we were forced to age and grow more complex. We found our first Unity as we became an atom of Hydrogen as our north magnetic and south magnetic natures merged in Unity for the first time. You can’t really say that we had souls or awareness yet as we understand those things, but we existed.

Over time we aged and grew more complex becoming an atom of each element in turn with the addition of a proton and electron and finally we became an atom of the final element Oganesson. There was no place else to go and we were simply a drop in the cosmic ocean of this final element which is also called the Cosmic Womb. This was our second experience of Unity as we merged once more with all that is. As we became part of the Goddess of Creation.

From out of this vast Cosmic Womb came molecules and compound molecules, then stars and planets and we in turn were all of these things although we were not aware of it because our awareness of that of stars and planets and not of living souls.

Then on some planets cellular life arose and we were that cellular life. Our individual history and journey is written in the Akashic Records because the Akashic Records is that life! It is our journey of becoming, past, present and future all rolled into one. And the Akashic Records continue to unfold and we write and rewrite our individual journey.

So the Akashic Records are the 3rd Unity that we experience and the record of our soul’s journey is who we really are!

So the Akashic Records emerge out of the Cosmic Womb of Creation and we in turn emerge out of the Akashic Records. We are given an etheric form based upon our individual past life experiences and that etheric form creates our physical body and our entire lifetime or our destiny at the moment of our birth. In addition to our etheric body and physical body our other bodies are formed as well, our lower emotional body, upper emotional body, concrete mental body, abstract mental body, concrete spiritual body and abstract spiritual body as well as our original photon body or the divine spark of light that is our origin. All of these bodies emerge from the Akashic Records at the moment of our birth but we are not aware of them.

Life in a physical body is the 4th Unity that we experience and our awareness is centered around the heart which is the center of life for us. Our heart center is the balance of the male and female energies and the seat of our soul. Our Higher Self and Shadow are secondary personalities that must be integrated for us to become complete. It is our heart that is the seat of our conscience and the source of all truth for us.

Our Higher Self is those things that we wish we had but can’t find inside us. Until we can find those things inside of us they will be eternally out of our reach! We can see them in others but not in ourselves and that is the task. We keep pushing it away. We need to find the divinity within our selves and then we can find the divinity within others as well.

Our Shadow is what we once were and what we once did to stay alive. It is primitive and violent and we do sense it stirring inside of us and we are afraid of it. We want to be human and not animal! In fear and disgust we push it away and reject it although it only wants to keep us alive. It wants the best for us and wants to protect us. It knows what must be done to stay alive but we won’t listen to it. We need to learn how to listen to it.

So both the Higher Self and Shadow are secondary personalities and both work against us because we are not consciously aware of them. They are subconscious impulses that work against our conscious awareness and will continue to be our greatest enemies until we find a way to integrate them and accept them. That is why so many of the things that we do are self defeating.

This integration process begins at the heart and with our sense of self or our Ego. Our sense of self or Ego needs to be strong and healthy if it is to integrate both our Higher Self and our Shadow. That is the only way we can achieve mental and emotional health.

So we begin this life with a fully activated and permanent astral body created out of heart center energies, concrete mental energies. All the other astral bodies exist, but not under our conscious control. In fact, in many ways they work against us. We need to become aware of them and permanently activate them under conscious awareness. That is our spiritual journey.

It is this astral body created out of heart energy that first visits the Spiritual and Magickal Planes as we sleep. As we develop the other astral bodies they in turn become active as well. But first we need to activate them and we do that through intense living and generating enormous amounts of vital life force energy!

Now that I’ve shared what actually happens with the compression and expansion of the astral planes during the Lunar, Solar and daily cycles it should be apparent that it is normal for the astral planes to rupture and reset themselves on a daily basis. One of the important things to remember is that the astral planes will only rupture at the weakest points! It will not rupture where it is strongly supported.

The astral planes are incredibly dynamic and reflect the incoming energies from literally all sources at the same time. This includes the forces behind both collective and individual events. The resolution of those energies is constantly being updated on a daily basis. This is why mass events such as mass meditations can be so powerful. It is also why such mass events as Covid-19 can affect so many people in a negative way.

Now let’s draw a couple of obvious conclusions from this. The magickal practitioner who casts a circle, performs a spell and injects energy into the astral for some purpose is a one shot event. The astral strongly resists change and if the generated energy is not enough to rupture the astral fabric it won’t make any difference at all. If it does rupture the astral fabric it is assimilated and within 24 hours the astral has forgotten all about it. There is no longer any catalytic effect from the spell. It’s power has been used up. It was either enough or not enough to make a difference.

Now let’s explore this a bit further and examine magickal attack or vulnerability. When we are magickally attacked or even when something bad happens to us it is because we are in some way vulnerable. There is some portion of our life that is out of our control and negative things are happening to us. One part of our life is out of balance.

What this really means is that the circle of our aura has been broken. Our own aura is the weak link!

These vulnerable places may happen at any of the various levels, the Abstract Spiritual, Concrete Spiritual, Abstract Mental, Concrete Mental, Upper Emotional, Lower Emotional, Physical or Etheric. If we have not permanently activated an astral body at the affected level we have absolutely no defense or means to protect ourselves! If we have a permanently activated astral body at the affected level we can at least gain awareness of the problem and fight back and if we have permanently activated other astral bodies we can use them to join the fight!

It is a no brainer that our first priority should be to permanently activate as many of our astral bodies as possible and this is done through the alchemical process of physically generating enough energy to rupture the fabric of the astral every single day! In the beginning it will rupture inside of us but as we discover the weak spots and heal them a point will come when the rupture happens outside of us! That is when we are protected and can fight back!

To begin serious work in rupturing the astral fabric on a daily basis certain safe guards need to be in place and my free online course Organic Gnosticism is designed to do just that by opening and balancing the chakra centers in the correct way.

Any serious magickal practitioner will have some type of powerful daily practice. My own is to do one of my meditations in the morning. What is yours?

Now that we have explored both the lunar and solar cycles we can understand what is happening during the daily cycles. Midnight corresponds with the New Moon and with the Winter Solstice. 6:00 AM corresponds with the 1st Quarter and the Spring Equinox. Noon corresponds with the Full Moon and the Summer Solstice. 6:00 PM corresponds with the 3rd Quarter and the Autumn Equinox. The hours of 3:00 AM and PM and 6:00 AM and PM respectively correspond to the midpoints of the daily cycle.

So from Midnight to 3:00 AM we have a natural top down compression of the Spiritual Planes as events and activity within each individual layer are forced into resolution or destruction. This corresponds to the New Moon to the 1st midpoint and the Winter Solstice to Imbolc.

Then from 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM the Spiritual Planes rupture from the top down determining the long term events that are ready to enter the Akashic Records for manifestation. This corresponds with the 1st midpoint to the 1st Quarter and from Imbolc to the Spring Equinox.

At 6:00 AM until 9:00 AM the energies and astral activity moves down into the Magickal Planes and merges with its energetic counterparts for manifestation. This is a top down movement and only activates one individual layer of the Magickal Planes at a time forcing the events and activities of the day into resolution or destruction depending on if they are balanced energetically or not. This corresponds from the 1st Quarter to the next midpoint and from the Spring Equinox to Beltaine when the veil between worlds is the thinnest.

From 9:00 AM until Noon the Magickal Planes rupture from the top down and propel all events that are ready to manifest into physical manifestation as they are forced into the Akashic Records and into physical activity. This corresponds to the midpoint to the Full Moon and from Beltaine to the Summer Solstice.

From Noon until 3:00 PM the activity is within the Magickal Planes as the daily harvest begins and the energies and events within each individual layer are forced into resolution or destruction from the lower levels upward. This corresponds to the Full Moon to the next midpoint and from the Summer Solstice to Lughnasadh.

From 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM the daily harvest continues as the layers rupture and the energies and events move upward into other layers and into physical manifestation. This is the time of strongest manifestation during the day. This corresponds to the midpoint to the 3rd Quarter and from Lughnasadh to the Autumn Equinox.

From 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM the activity and energies move into the Spiritual Planes to seek balance with their energetic counterparts. This corresponds to the 3rd Quarter to the following midpoint and from the Autumn Equinox to Samhain. The energies and activity remains within each individual layer but each layer is activated one at a time from the bottom upwards.

From 9:00 PM to Midnight the layers within the Spiritual Planes rupture from the lowest to the highest as hidden things are brought into our awareness. This is when most of us dream about the events of the day and the energy which we have generated during the day is injected into the Spiritual Planes to fuel our dream activity. This corresponds to the lunar midpoint to the New Moon and from Samhain to the Winter Solstice. So 9:00 PM is when the veil is the thinnest in the Spiritual Planes.

Samhain or Halloween corresponds to the midpoint of the lunar cycle between the 3rd Quarter and the New Moon. It is the rupturing of the Spiritual Planes in an upward direction bringing past and buried things into conscious awareness as the energies and events of one layer flow upward into another.

It is the astral activity at this time that helps us identify just where ghosts and other spirits exist within the astral planes! Apparently they live at the lowest levels of the Spiritual Planes and this is the time of year when the veil is thinnest and we are able to communicate with them.

Technically Samhain and Beltaine are the two times during the year when the veil is thinnest and they were the two most sacred festivals of the ancient Druids. But at Beltaine the unseen vital life force energy bursts into the physical and at Samhain the vital life force energy leaves the physical and bursts into the unseen giving it strength and energy. The natural time of death in nature.

The astral activity in the Spiritual Planes acts as a wave as it propels energy and events upwards into the higher planes for resolution. This is when the individual energy we have generated merges with that of others to create a collective event or big picture of the coming year. At the moment of the Winter Solstice all is unified and balanced as much as it can be within the Spiritual Planes.

The time from Samhain to the coming Winter Solstice is the darkest time of the year and many people find that their supply of light and spiritual resources has run out and they find themselves in desperate situations. That is why there are so many suicides around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. There is a darkness in their souls because they have run out of spiritual light.

That is also why this is the natural time of the year for meditation and spiritual introspection as we try to get in touch with the divinity within us. It is also a time for helping those less fortunate than us to help them get through the bitter winter months.

The adept or those with a permanent connection to the spiritual light of Source will experience an extra blessing of incoming spiritual light during the New Moon immediately before the Winter Solstice. So they will spend much time in preparation for this influx with prayer and meditation. This is the time of the Christmas miracle for those open to it.

Samhain also marks the final harvest and is a celebration as those things that will not keep over the winter are sacrificed and enjoyed by all.

The Autumn Equinox corresponds to the 3rd Quarter of the Lunar cycle and is when the activities and energies within the Magickal Planes move up into the Spiritual Planes in search of their corresponding opposites. Again the astral activity begins at the lowest levels of the Spiritual Planes and moves upwards one by one filling each layer with as much energy and light as possible. The events and activities within each individual layer are forced into final confrontation. I mention this because some will find that they don’t have enough energy or their harvest is not great enough to tide them over for the winter.

The passage into the Spiritual Planes marks the spot where individual effort can no longer affect the events of the coming year. There is a sealing off of the Akashic Records and all astral events are turned over to the collective for final judgement and final resolution. Now is the time for collective action! Community action as we help each other out.

At the same time the harvest of physical events continues so once more there are two streams of activity, an outward manifestation of harvest and an inward in drawing of vital life force that is being reserved for the coming year. This activity peaks at the next Midpoint which is the orb between Samhain and the 2nd Full Moon after the Autumn Equinox.

This activity happens within nature and within human society. Because the lowest levels of the Spiritual Planes are being stirred and activated as they are brought into awareness this is also a time of spirits and ghosts and connection with those that have passed on and live in the etheric plane or Summer Land. This is perhaps the most supernatural time of year leading up to Samhain when the veil between worlds becomes the thinnest.

Lughnasadh or Mid Summer is traditionally considered a lunar festival but celebrated according to the solar calendar! Again we need to take into consideration the Lunar Cycle as well. So this would be an orb between the commonly associated Mid Summer Day and the 2nd Full Moon after the Summer Solstice or the first complete Lunar cycle from Full Moon to Full Moon after the Summer Solstice.

It so happens that this year, 2021, we have 4 Full Moons between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox giving an orb of an entire Lunar Cycle for this activity! This indicates an extremely thorough harvest and a decisive harvest for good or bad.

Again the activity within the Magickal Planes is from the lowest levels moving upward layer by layer but this time each layer ruptures and as they do each event that is balanced with its counterpart enters the Akashic Records for manifestation and those astral events able to move upwards do so. In any case the unbalanced energies continue to move upward to ultimately enter the Spiritual Planes at the time of the Autumn Equinox. So there is heavy physical manifestation and heavy astral movement as both energetic streams surge forwards.

Once more those events scheduled for this years harvest continue to unfold and we reap the physical benefits of our actions for the past spring and summer. So we are heavily occupied with this harvest.

But this is also the window of opportunity for last minute adjustments to what is in store for us in the coming year. This is symbolized as the vital life force energy leaving physical things and entering the seed for rebirth in the spring. So we are not only collecting a harvest for our coming winter but collecting the seeds for planting in the spring.

I’m always finding myself involved in some frantic last minute activity as the time of the autumn equinox approached and this year is no exception. This year I find myself doing surprise research on the Druids and King Arthur that I had no conception of doing a few weeks ago.

At the Summer Solstice the energies within the astral split with those that had become balanced with their counterparts in the Spiritual Planes moving into the Akashic Records to take their place and unfold as real events in their proper time. These would be the coming harvest in the fall.

Those unable to become balanced would begin the slow process of moving upward through the Magickal Planes and their energy would gradually withdraw from the physical world into the Magickal Planes and then ultimately upward into the Spiritual Planes. So at the moment of the Summer Solstice this split happened and all events considered complete were magickally sealed off as they entered the Akashic Records. There was no more that could be done with them.

The only energies available to be worked with were the unbalanced energies that would be returning to the Spiritual Planes. The time period from the Summer Solstice to the Autumn Equinox was the final window of opportunity to astrally empower and balance events and activities for the coming spring and the entire coming year! Most events happened at least one year ahead of time in the astral planes before manifesting as physical events. Energetically the Autumn Equinox is the deadline for personally making any improvements or alterations before the astral activity moved up into the Spiritual Planes.

In my own life for many years now this time just before the Autumn Equinox has always been extremely busy right up to the wire and this year is no exception. I am really scrambling to get some last minute projects completed before I run out of time.

From the Summer Solstice we move into the next midpoint known as Lughnasadh which represents the first harvest. Since the entire harvest only needs to be taken this time represents the first fruits of our past labors. The movement within the Magickal Planes is layer by layer filling up with light as space is created by those things leaving which are manifesting and need to be harvested. The movement and activity is from the lowest layers moving upwards one layer at a time forcing things out to manifest and making room for new things.

Again Lughnasadh is traditionally a Lunar Festival so the Lunar Cycle needs to be taken into account as well as the Solar Cycle. It is the first complete lunar cycle after the Summer Solstice or the 2nd Full Moon after the Summer Solstice because the Full Moon is the maximum compression point within the Magickal Planes. So there is an orb or window of activity between the Solar Day of Midsummer and that Full Moon.

As the harvest begins we also work toward ensuring things that will be carried over into the next year. So this is a very busy time of year!

The midpoint of the solar cycle is called Beltaine and although it is traditionally a lunar festival it is celebrated as May Day! Technically it is the 2nd full moon after the Spring Equinox or the full moon after Easter. Again there is overlap between the exact May Day and the full moon which creates an orb of influence. This time period lasts from the 1st of May to the Summer Solstice and the movement or activity is in the Magickal Planes and from the top layers downward through to the lower ones rupturing each layer as it goes and forcing balanced events and activities into the Akashic Records to unfold as actual events according to their own nature.

The vital life force of spring is being driven deep into the ground. But the Beltaine full moon is the completion of the first stage of compression where the rupturing of the astral fabric only happens within each individual layer. The movement downward from layer to layer is only just beginning and the moon is working against the sun because it is trying to move everything upward as it moves toward the New Moon! So the Solar Cycle and Lunar Cycle are trying to cancel each other out!

The heavy movement where the entire astral planes purge themselves and pour everything possible into the Akashic Records actually begins at the New Moon following the Beltaine Full Moon and lasts for the next two weeks to the 3rd Full Moon which is just before the summer solstice as the most powerful manifesting movement of the entire year! It is incredibly intense! Then things let up a bit as we near the summer solstice because the Lunar Cycle and the Solar Cycle are once more in conflict.

I have experienced these energies in this way for years! To me this is not theory but life! It is these activities that will ensure the nature of the coming harvest in the fall.

As a metaphor our gardens are beginning to blossom and we need to tend to the weeds and nurture the plants as they attain their full growth. At this time of the solar cycle we can see how many plants have survived and have a pretty good idea of what kind of harvest we can expect in the fall. Our projects are in full development and we just need to maintain them.

For me that is keeping up the posts that I have started on this site and Pagan Space as well as maintaining my free online Organic Gnosticism Class. I am also trying to maintain my translation schedule of putting out monthly issues of Der Orchideengarten.

The Spring Equinox corresponds to the 1st Quarter of the Lunar cycle where the energetic activity has completed itself in the Spiritual Planes and transitions to the Magical Planes to energize its corresponding counterpart. Those dreams, events and activities that have a suitable counterpart in the Magickal Planes move forward into manifestation, but they can manifest at any point in the spectrum depending upon where they are found. They can manifest as physical events, emotional events, as thought and as inspiration. And they don’t manifest right away. Once they have found their true counterpart they enter the Akashic Record into a time line that will gradually unfold through the rest of the year.

So this time of year, the Spring Equinox brings energy and movement down into the Magickal Planes and brings vital life force as well. Again the movement of the energy is from the top down, from the highest levels to the lower levels. One by one each astral layer will be activated and the events within it will be compressed and forced to merge and grow or self destruct to make room for those that will move forward. This activity will happen within each astral layer one by one, but also some events will be influenced by the lunar and daily cycles.

The Spring Equinox is closely associated with the Full Moon immediately following it which is Ostara and one of the three most powerful full moons of the year. Where that occurs is a maximum compression point that gives added force to the rupturing of the astral fabric. There is bleed through between the solar cycle, the lunar cycle and the daily cycle as compression and rupturing of the astral fabric occurs within each of them. The main point is that the rupturing will always occur at the weakest point in the energetic circuit. It is the combined force and activity of all these cycles that determine the final outcome and a person that intentionally ruptures the astral fabric on a daily basis will see a compounded effect within the lunar and solar cycles! That is why some type of daily practice is so important!

This bleed through effect is why a complete lunar cycle from full moon to full moon after one of the solar festivals is required to ensure the completion of astral activity. That is why Beltaine and Samhain are so powerful. They represent one complete lunar cycle after each equinox. Ostara is powerful in bringing the energies of Spring in but it is only a beginning.

In our metaphor of the solar cycle as a circulatory system the vital life force energy has chosen its main pathways, chosen its main events and individual which it will move through, and now enters the physical organs. It is the time of leafing and sprouting as new life shows for the first time. This happens in our environment and inside us as well. We take those first physical steps toward manifesting our dream, and our coming harvest for the season. We begin to work on the fulfillment of our dream. It is time to act.
