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!

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.

At the time of the Full Moon all possible events have been squeezed into the Akashic Records to manifest as some type of event. The Magickal Planes relax and begin to draw in light from the sun and anywhere else they can get it. It is much like the action of a syringe that draws in fluid as the plunger is pulled back.

But this time the activity begins at the lowest levels and gradually moves upward to the highest levels of the Magickal Planes.

This happens for all 118 layers because it is the energy and not always the event itself that moves upward. Imagine a piano keyboard with 118 keys. Now visualize pressing down the lowest key and sliding your finger smoothly all the way from the lowest tone to the highest. Each note is individually toned. Now imagine it happening once more as the notes are again sounded from the lowest to the highest.

The first sequence ruptures the astral fabric within each individual layer one at a time forcing astral events to either merge, grow or become destroyed. The activity remains within each individual astral layer of the Magickal Planes.

Then at the midpoint between the Full Moon and 3rd Qtr the second sequence begins once more from lowest to highest. But this time the astral fabric ruptures and those events and astral bodies capable of moving upward to the next layer do so. In astrology the midpoint is the 45 degree point which is the most powerful in terms of energy.

After each layer has ruptured and every possible event has moved upward as high as it possibly can those events and astral bodies in the Magickal Planes are ready to transition their energy or pass their energy on to their energetic counterparts in the Spiritual Planes as finished events. Again these finished events do not need to be physical events but can be emotional events or spiritual events. They can take place on any level but they will need to be balanced energetically with the Spiritual Planes before they can manifest.

You can see how the events and entities within the Magickal Planes gradually attempt to find a common resolution with the Spiritual Planes by going higher and higher.

Important events in your own life will not normally be at the top or bottom of the Magickal Planes but someplace in the middle. They will be toned and activated when their key is struck and not at the exact moments of the Full Moon or 3rd Qtr.. Any magickal work in the astral planes should be done before the key is struck and that level activated, if possible and not after the fact. If the magickal working is done too late the activation will be postponed until the next month’s lunar cycle activates it! By that time most of the energy will have dissipated harmlessly away.

You can tell roughly where your personal activity is located by the time of your dream during the 3 1/2 day spread. Whether the dream happens immediately after the Full Moon or closer to the midpoint. Each lunar cycle will once more activate any active areas so that you may have dreams during the same time each month when that specific layer is activated until the process is complete.

To be more specific any dreams within 3 1/2 days after the Full Moon will only have horizontal elements. Dreams within the 3 1/2 days approaching the 3rd Qtr will have vertical elements as the astral activity moves up into the next layer and attempts to find it’s complement so that it can somehow manifest.

At the time of the 1st Quarter all possible events have been squeezed by the Spiritual Planes and the energy they contain moves down into the Magickal planes to find their counterparts. This happens for all 118 layers because it is the energy and not always the event itself that moves down. An event in the upper emotional realms may find physical manifestation in the upper emotional realms as an example. Not all things become physical events.

Immediately after the 1st quarter the compression of the Magickal Planes begins.

Imagine a piano keyboard with 118 keys. Now visualize pressing down the highest key and sliding your finger smoothly all the way from the highest tone to the lowest. Each note is individually toned. Now imagine it happening once more as the notes are again sounded from the highest to the lowest.

The first sequence ruptures the astral fabric within each individual layer one at a time forcing astral events to either merge, grow or become destroyed. The activity remains within each individual astral layer of the Magickal Planes.

Then at the midpoint between the 1st Qtr and the Full Moon the second sequence begins once more from highest to lowest. But this time the astral fabric ruptures and those events and astral bodies capable of moving down to the next layer do so. In astrology the midpoint is the 45 degree point which is the most powerful in terms of energy.

After each layer has ruptured and every possible event has moved down as low as it possibly can those events and astral bodies in the Magickal Planes are ready to transition their energy or pass their energy on to their energetic counterparts and move into the Akashic records as finished events. Again these finished events do not need to be physical events but can be emotional events or spiritual events. They can take place on any level but they will be balanced energetically before they can manifest.

You can see how the events and entities within the Spiritual Planes gradually attempt to drop lower and lower until they become able to manifest in the Akashic Records as they combine with their energetic counterpart in the Magickal Planes.

Important events in your own life will not normally be at the top or bottom of the Magickal Planes but someplace in the middle. They will be toned and activated when their key is struck and not at the exact moments of the 1st Qtr or Full Moon. Any magickal work in the astral planes should be done before the key is struck and that level activated, if possible and not after the fact. If the magickal working is done too late the activation will be postphoned until the next month’s lunar cycle activates it! By that time most of the energy will have dissipated harmlessly away.

You can tell roughly where your personal activity is located by the time of your dream during the 3 1/2 day spread. Whether the dream happens immediately after the 1st Qtr or closer to the midpoint. Each lunar cycle will once more activate any active areas so that you may have dreams when that specific layer is activated until the process is no longer active.

To be more specific any dreams within 3 1/2 days after the 1st Qtr will only have horizontal elements. Dreams within the 3 1/2 days approaching the Full Moon will have vertical elements as the astral activity moves down into the next layer and attempts to find it’s complement and somehow manifest.

When we understand the lunar cycle we can also understand the daily cycle and the solar cycle because they are similar in their workings. At the time of the New Moon all 118 layers of the astral planes in the northern hemisphere or the Spiritual Planes have been filled to capacity. Immediately after the New Moon the compression of the levels begins. Imagine a piano keyboard with 118 keys. Now visualize pressing down the highest key and sliding your finger smoothly all the way from the highest tone to the lowest. Each note is individually toned. Now imagine it happening once more as the notes are again sounded from the highest to the lowest.

The first sequence ruptures the astral fabric within each individual layer one at a time forcing astral events to either merge, grow or become destroyed. The activity remains within each individual astral layer of the Spiritual Planes.

Then at the midpoint between the New Moon and the 1st Qtr. the second sequence begins once more from highest to lowest. But this time the astral fabric ruptures and those events and astral bodies capable of moving down to the next layer do so. In astrology the midpoint is the 45 degree point which is the most powerful in terms of energy.

After each layer has ruptured and every possible event has moved down as low as it possibly can those events and astral bodies at the lowest level of the Spiritual Planes are ready to transition their energy or pass their energy on to the Magickal Planes and their energetic counterparts. This is what happens at the 1st Qtr. and we will talk about that next post. That is when the astral activity moves into the Magickal Planes.

You can see how the events and entities within the Spiritual Planes gradually drop lower and lower until they become able to physically manifest as they combine with their energetic counterpart in the Magickal Planes.

Important events in your own life will not normally be at the top or bottom of the Spiritual Planes but someplace in the middle.

THE LUNAR CYCLE

    As the moon circles the earth it alternately compresses and expands the astral layers around the earth.

    At the time of the new moon the sun and the moon are in the same part of the sky combining their gravitational forces.  This pulls the astral layers as high above the earth’s surface as possible and expands them so they can hold more energy.  At this time the maximum amount of light energy from the sun is allowed into the expanded and stretched astral planes of the earth.

    Normally this space is filled by light energy from the sun but it can also be filled with sexual energy from individuals or any other type of physically generated energy.  In any case at the time of the new moon the earth’s astral planes are completely filled and can’t hold any more energy of any kind.

    Immediately after the new moon the astral layers begin to compress.  This continues until the full moon when the sun and the moon are in opposite parts of the sky.  At this point the earth’s astral layers have been compressed as much as possible and any excess energy has been forced to become physical actions and events or it has been forced to self-destruct. Both of these events happen through the forced rupturing of the astral fabric by the lunar cycle itself.

    Immediately after the full moon the earth’s astral layers begin to expand and draw more energy into them in an almost suction action.  This pulsing action of compression and expansion causes a continuous flow of energy among the astral creations in the earth’s astral planes impelling new physical events and new astral events continuously.

    Light energy passes through the astral planes and strikes both astral objects as well as physical objects.  Light energy is a male energy and causes expansion or growth of physical and astral objects by transforming into expansive magnetic field energy.  As the astral planes expand so do the astral objects and beings within the astral planes.  They may combine with other astral events and become more complex.

    During the compression phase these astral beings and events are forced together by the action of the moon which ruptures the astral fabric. I will speak of this more completely later.

    The earth is completely surrounded by the astral planes but there are actually two astral planes,  the norther hemisphere astral planes are called the Spirit planes and the southern hemisphere astral planes are called the Magical planes.

    The Spirit planes involve north pole magnetic field energy and try to disburse all superfluous astral energy outward into the cosmic leaving only key critical astral events and individuals intact.

    The Magical planes involve south pole magnetic field energy and try to focus astral energy at the lowest possible point to manifest as physical events.

Take a cross section of Gaia at the equator and visualize that slice of balanced events or record of balanced events moving through time and space so that instead of a sphere you have a long flat plane that resembles a football field marked with 10 yard lines. At one end is the beginning of an age and at the other end is the end of an age.

That is the vision I had to the new age that we are currently entering. I had that vision over twenty five years ago and I still consider it to be a true vision of Gaia and humanities future. You see, before an age can begin it has to have an ending!

The classic book by Michael Harner “The Way of the Shaman” casually mentions how a true shaman gets a vision to the seven great ages that Gaia has gone through. For me these visions were extremely vivid and included the one about the age of the dinosaurs as well as several earlier ones about the evolution of life on Gaia. Those visions were part of my history as well. I was one of the souls there at the beginning as were many of us.

But this vision was of the new age we are just entering and at the end humans had merged with some type of reptilian species. Humanity didn’t exist any more, at least not as we know humanity today!

The point that I’m making here is that each age is energetically blocked off with definite starting and ending points. All the karma and the energy has to be balanced. That is what the Akashic Records are, a record of an entire age from beginning to end. And before it can even begin the ending needs to be there as well so that it is balanced. Once the beginning point and ending point have been determined the energy is released and free to form its own versions of the past and future that swirl above and below the Akashic Records. These alternate versions of the past and future are the Spiritual planes and the Magickal Planes that I posted about earlier.

Because there is truly no such thing as time the past and present are always in flux and the Akashic Records are living things that alter as well. But they can only alter in a way that ultimately keeps the same balance at the end of the age. Once the pieces have all been created they can be mixed and stirred as much as possible and the Akashic Records can be rewritten and are always being rewritten!

We are stuck in the present moment as we travel through the existing version of the Akashic Records. So we each have a destiny or plan to follow. When we try to change it we are trying to change every other thing that happens within that age and that is extremely difficult but possible to a degree.

For example it was written in the Akashic Records that the last age would end with the destruction of all life on Gaia in the nuclear holocaust of WWIII. But we avoided it and in avoiding it changed the beginning of this one. The rich and elite were supposed to survive in their underground bunkers and emerge when it was safe to take over the remainder of humanity and resume rulership of the entire world. Things didn’t turn out that way and that is why we have this mess we are in right now! Because we averted WWIII.

But back to the Akashic Records. They emerge from the Cosmic Sea of the final element Oganesson, the noble gas. The emerge from the Cosmic Womb and Gaia emerged first. Then the life upon her emerged. Life has evolved through several great cycles and now we have made it to another great cycle. Look around you. What you see is what the Akashic Records have written for you! Do you like what you see? If you don’t you need to do something about it. The circumstances that currently surround each one of us individually are in the process of crystallizing. The new balance has been struck and both the beginning and ending of this new great age have been written. It is up to us the write the middle chapters!

The Akashic Records is the world that our etheric double lives in. It is the Summerland. It is the world beneath what we call physical reality!

The Magickal Planes are in the southern hemisphere and extend outward to the hydrogen levels as well as reaching inwards to Gaia’s core. These of course have a manifesting or focusing quality and attempt to flush everything down the drain so to speak into physical manifestation. Remember both the Spiritual Planes and Magickal Planes are swirling around the Akashic Records at the equator which is the only thing that can manifest or has already manifested because it is balanced.

In practical terms this means that whatever is closest to physical reality and the most probable is what will likely happen. Or put another way, whatever is closest to what currently exists within the Akashic Record is what is most likely to happen. Ordinarily things don’t just magickally appear out of nowhere. Magick works with whatever has already manifested. That is why the old saying, “Possession is nine tenths of the law!”

So in the Magickal planes the idea is let’s get everything out of here! The heaviest stuff at the bottom goes first and anything that can find a match with the Spiritual Planes goes! It is kind of like throwing everything you have at the wall and seeing what sticks! You wanted a red corvette, it gives you a red Volkswagen! Well, at least it is red! So if you really want that red corvette you have to grab onto it in the higher or outer most levels and ride it on down not letting go of it. That means it might stay in the higher levels for awhile because there might not be any opportunities for a red corvette that are available right now. But if you hang in there you will be gradually drawn to one. It might be an older model or it might need repair or it might be just what you are looking for.

Remember that for something to physically manifest it needs its complement or opposite from the Spiritual Planes! So during the lunar cycle right before and after the full moon your dreaming astral self is working in the Magickal Planes trying to arrange that red corvette for you. Then during the other half of the lunar cycle your dreaming astral self is working in the Spiritual Planes trying to bring that red corvette to you as well.

The problem is that the astral resists change and will likely just absorb your energy and disperse it elsewhere. That is why the ability to rupture the astral fabric is so important! This is when “Possession is nine tenths of the law” is no longer valid because the astral fabric has ruptured and will put itself back together again in the most balanced way possible.

Many people that work magick believe in doing one spell and then letting things go. My own belief is that the Astral fabric resets itself twice a day so every single day you can be putting energy out there to bring that red corvette to you! This means rupturing the astral fabric in the Spiritual Planes and the Magickal Planes during the entire lunar cycle!

The greatest difficulty with magick is that most people don’t generate enough energy to make it work!

Continuing our study of the astral planes we will first consider the spiritual planes which cover the entire northern hemisphere from the lowest level to the highest. But everything in the spiritual planes has a north magnetic or expanding nature. Objects or events within the spiritual planes do not want to mix and mingle. They begin as archetypal objects and events and want to remain that way.

They may gradually work their way down to the lower levels but for the most part the spiritual planes represent future probable events. Things that may happen in the future if they ever work their way down and find their missing south magnetic half. This can be long term future as in thousands of years from now, or it could be a timeline for a life. Also it might be things that could possibly manifest in the coming year if they can be balanced with their counterpart as I’ve mentioned.

To understand the astral planes we need to understand that there is a part of our awareness that is within our physical body and other parts of us that leave our physical body and travel through the astral planes while we are asleep and dreaming. These astral bodies go to specific locations within the astral planes where they are needed. Where important events are getting ready to manifest as physical events or to shape possible future events.

I’m taking a detour here but this is important to understand as well. We are all broken and we are seeking or should be seeking to become whole again! This brokenness exists in physical life and in the astral and it takes different forms in each. First we will talk about normal ego awareness of the physical body and physical reality. It is an illusion!

To be even more specific normal ego awareness which we have of daily events is often not even ego awareness which implies a unity. The awareness of most people operates through valences or masks that we wear according to the situation we find ourselves in. So we act, think and exist as a parent when we are dealing with our children; then we change masks or valences and act, think and become like the children we once were in dealing with our own parents. Then we again change masks and become someone else when we are with our lover or our friends. Then we again change masks and become someone else entirely at work! And we don’t even realize that we are shifting from one state of awareness into another!

In the astral we don’t have masks or valences, but we do have astral bodies that exist in different levels. The astral body in one level might not know anything about the astral body that exists in another level. I remember a dream where my dreaming body encountered another of my astral bodies that was lying down asleep. And of course I had a third awareness that was watching the whole thing!

So both in physical life and in our astral life we seek the integration and harmonization of all our parts both physically and astrally!

Now our astral bodies may journey during the night as we sleep and they will be charged with the energy that we have generated during the day. They will be drawn to the proper place to discharge that energy within the earth’s astral planes. That is what our dream is, the discharging of that energy and the resultant reaction.

Now I will be saying this over and over as we go along, so you will gradually become familiar with how the astral is manipulated by the lunar and solar cycles. Don’t get too excited if you don’t get it right away. It will gradually unfold for you as we go along.

From the time of the New Moon to the 1st quarter when our astral bodies journey at night they will travel to the Spiritual Planes because that is where the heavy activity is. The same is true from the lunar 3rd quarter to the New Moon the heavy activity will be in the Spiritual Planes and that is where your dream time astral body will go. So in general the week before and after the New Moon will consist of heavy activity within the Spiritual Planes and that is where you will go in your dreams. I will explore this more deeply when we talk about the lunar and solar cycles. Right now we are just finding our way around the astral planes.

So during one half of the lunar cycle our dreaming astral body is working in the Spiritual Planes and during the other half of the lunar cycle it is working in the Magickal Planes trying to get both ends to meet so things can physically manifest! Remember that each part needs its opposite counterpart in order to physically manifest.
