In the teachings it is said: When a student first glimpses this truth and the thought of it begins to burn in their mind, that more can exist beyond what they first thought possible, the first glimpse of light dawns on the horizon for them and they decide at that moment to begin their quest. They soon realize that if they can become the master of their thoughts and emotions, they can remove themselves from this cycle of the wheel of karma and grow closer to experiencing their true inner selves. – Kala Ambrose
Once the student steps outside of the belief that their previous basic thoughts are the only thoughts which exist in life, they open up the floodgates to the greater possibilities the universe has to offer. This is where true magic begins!
The first lesson given to the Neophyte Student is:
We Live In A Magical Universe, which means that, The Possibilities Of What We Can Create Are Infinite!
This does not mean we do not have to work hard to achieve this ability of creation or that universal laws are not put into place for our protection. Imagine, if this was not so! Many a student will complain when first taught this lesson, saying, “Well if this is true, then how come when I think hard about wanting this or that, nothing happens?” The first concept to understand is that protective measures have been put into place by the universe to protect you from greater harm until you mature to a level to take it on for yourself, much as a parent does for a child.
Imagine if you will, if you could just have a thought and it would occur instantly. What if it was truly that easy, that whatever you think, would manifest instantly before your very eyes. Sound good? Ok, close your eyes and think about every thought you have had in this past week, remember to include all of the positive thoughts and all of the negative thoughts. What have you created this past week? Are you pleased with these creations, the thoughts you have had about yourself, your family, friends, co-workers and even strangers. When watching a sporting event, do you really mean what you say when you chant that you wish for the other team to literally be crushed? When yelling at a stranger in the car in front of you on the freeway, is that really how you would like that person to spend the remainder of their days on this earth? In frustration with your spouse or children, would you really like it if your thoughts became reality? What about the thoughts you’ve had about yourself, even looking into the mirror one day, would you like those thoughts that you’ve had about yourself during that time to magnify as you thought them to be?
For most of you the answers to these questions would be No; you don’t really want those things to happen, when you really think about the consequences they would bring. This is why these measures were put into place, so that until each of us did the work to unlock the codes inside of us where we can activate our thoughts into reality, we can not actively create on the whims of our random emotions and thoughts. It is fortunate in many ways, that most people have such a short attention span and quickly move on to other random thoughts with little energy attached to any of them!
This is why it is so important to master our thoughts and emotions before we begin to actively and consciously create. We are subconsciously creating all the time, whether we realize it or not, which delves into the teachings of the law of attraction. What we think, manifests itself into our lives. However conscious creation is even stronger and thusly safeguards were put into place for this magic as well.
Be that as it may, we do live in a magical universe, which listens to every thought we have, every word we say and every action we take and it responds accordingly, like a genie following our commands. Therefore, a Neophyte student must understand this most important universal law of thought and attraction. For it can be the most exhilarating, awe-inspiring and possibly terrifying realization, once one understands the depth of where our thoughts and emotions can take us in a moment’s notice.
There is a point of retreat which I offer to my Neophyte students when they first begin the Esoteric Classes. They are invited to attend three beginner’s classes, in which I explain the basic tenets of these concepts. At the end of the third class, I invite them to cross the first line drawn in the sand as I describe it metaphorically.
Once they cross this line, this signifies that they have opened their minds to the first level of exploration and are ready to explore deeper into their consciousness. There is an old saying, “Ignorance is Bliss”. What this means is that when one does not have knowledge of the teachings, one is blissfully unaware of what they are doing to create these actions in their life. This does not signify that one lives in bliss, but rather than one does not have the knowledge that; what one thinks, one creates in their life. Once a student has crossed this line in the sand of understanding and realizes this teaching, it is most difficult to turn back to the life they knew before, as they have the realization that can not be forgotten.
From there, the journey continues and there are many more lines to be crossed as the path of the esoteric student evolves. In the mystery teachings, one is taught that communication with the universe and the multi-verses travels faster than the speed of light; in fact it is instantaneous in many cases. As soon as you have the thought, you have already experienced it on some level, in some place, in some other time. Yes, esoteric teachers are aware that many scientists still agree with the theory of Einstein that communication does not travel faster than the speed of light, and I am not here to debate current scientific understanding. Science continues to evolve and expand its theories and good scientists are always open to new discoveries in their fields of research. I have the deepest respect for Einstein and his work and he remained open minded to understanding the world around us further and deeper, as evidenced in many of his quotes including:
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
“I maintain that cosmic religiousness is the strongest and most noble driving force of scientific research.”
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
and perhaps my favorite…..
“It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.”
Perhaps we can wonder, has Einstein already reincarnated back onto this planet and is currently at work pushing the boundaries of discovery into more scientific areas, including expounding upon his work and finding that some things do travel faster than the speed of light. This work has begun to be explored, as evidenced by a University of Paris research team in the 1980’s which discovered that under certain conditions and circumstances, subatomic particles such as electrons are able to simultaneously communicate with each other. It was found that distance was not a factor in their ability to communicate, which revealed the understanding that the particles were aware of what the other particles were doing, regardless of how far away they were from each other. Fascinating isn’t it? Mystics have taught a similar concept for eons, that We Are All One, and that as part of the Whole, the Energy/God/Spirit whatever you wish to call it, is always aware of you on some level. Esoteric teachers have always maintained, that when Science can work together with Spirituality, that greater understanding of both will be realized. Each side holds part of this knowledge. Working together, answers can be uncovered in the most profound life-altering discoveries.
If humanity could embrace and truly understand, that all things are connected and that what you do in thought, words and deeds affects not only you, but everyone and everything, imagine how we could change our world in a moment. All we would need is one moment of global consciousness and understanding and the world could be transformed. Perhaps we will see this occur in our future. However, in this moment, what we can do is continue to teach those who have eyes in which to see and ears in which to hear, to learn of the greater consciousness and the mysteries which are unveiled on the labyrinth path to wisdom.
When one begins to tackle this puzzle and peels back the first layer of the onion, the discovery is astounding. One begins to see that what appears to be real, is not and what appears to be illusion, is in fact real! Where does one go from here?
As this begins to sink in, your world is turned upside down. Everything you have been taught by society, by your families and your schools, you have just been told that it is not so, not as it appears. At first, you disbelieve and perhaps react with shock and return back to your “normal” life, thinking that this has all been a ridiculous discussion. However, for many of you, as the old saying goes, “When the Student is Ready, The Teacher Appears.” You will find that rather than finding comfort in your old life, you now are left with a nagging feeling that you are close to discovering something within yourself which you’ve always felt deep inside. There is a part of you which calls out to you at night, or when you are alone in silent reflection, almost like a cry at times, wanting to be released and explored.
Perhaps something in this first lesson has touched you and now that it’s been opened slightly, you find it hard to return to what you believed before. This part of you, from a soul level, is ready for more and won’t give you peace. It is at this point, you make your first decision, which is whether you are ready to explore further or whether you will put these thoughts aside and go on as you have been before, until you feel ready to proceed further. This is one of the beautiful gifts of the Universe, as should this not be the right time for you, you will have other opportunities to explore this if you so choose, in this lifetime and in others. Remember, the universe moves in a cyclical fashion, and it will come around again, Life indeed is just one big “Merry-Go-Round”, which explains some of those de ja vu feelings you’ve had…
Once we begin to understand that the universe is indeed magical, the teachings proceed into a new layer. The deeper secret teaching is:
When We Activate Our Consciousness,
We Become Magical Beings and Can Harness This Energy
When we active our consciousness, the all seeing eye of the universe, then becomes aware of us and looks back at us! When we transform and become conscious creators, the energy transforms into an ocean of energy, rather than only previously receiving drops of water from the magical universe.
In that Moment of Awareness, Everything Changes.
To further explain … Universal energy flows continuously like a waterfall upon the earth plane. As our thoughts, words and deeds pour forth from each of us; they interact with this waterfall and are activated. Since they are created from the lower levels of our bodies, and are from our lower subconscious selves, the energy coming from them is from the emotional and mental bodies and is short lived. In this state, it interacts for a few brief moments of time with the waterfall, causing an action and reaction for us and then it is gone. Unless we hold on to this emotion or thought and keep sending it back to this waterfall, (which causes greater action and reaction to happen regarding this particular thought), it will dissipate quickly. Remember, it is the lower self sending out this energy from the emotional and mental bodies, which is tiring and exhaustive. The result is reactive only. Basically we send out a lower level desire or impulse and it is reflected back to us.
However, when we become “conscious creators”, we are working from a higher level and from higher bodies within ourselves and we send out deliberate and focused energy to this universal waterfall. We are saying, “Now, I See You and You See Me”. “I AM interacting with you and wish to magnify this energy with you to create an outcome”. This of course, can be used for positive or negative effects. Some people choose not to follow the Path of Light and rather than work from their heart chakra, they prefer to conduct this from a lower level body to achieve the results they desire. This is short lived, as accessing energy at this level can be achieved, however, it has the detrimental effect of taking a harsh toll on the body and mind and eats away at all of the lower level bodies. This does not have the same effect when followed on the path of light course of action.
As the All Seeing Eye or Universal Energy becomes aware that you are “aware”, its energy quickens and vibrates more excitedly with yours and things begin to happen at a faster pace. It has no problem keeping up with you, as quickly as you are willing to progress. At this point, you will just be beginning to see what truly is possible in such a magical universe. Indeed as we have said before, the possibilities are endless! However, it must be said, that at the Neophyte stage, one is better served to first master these nine teachings and understand both the concepts and the pitfalls before attempting to work with them. Otherwise consequences can result which are unwanted and the student may not be prepared to handle the resulting outcome. This is why esoteric teachers are so useful, both in past and present endeavors, to help guide the student through this process of reconnecting again. This book can only serve to stimulate your curiosity and perhaps begin or enhance your journey to explore these nine lessons.
To continue with this thought, think of Universal Energy as having the same effect as electricity. Electricity has great power. At first, in its raw unleashed form, it is exhilarating to see, as in a lightening storm. Should this storm approach closer to you and your home, you soon realize that it also has the power to cause great destruction. On the flip side, electricity when properly understood and harnessed can be used in whatever form you wish, including lighting and heating or cooling your home, along with many other wonderful forms of focused energy.
I trust dear student, that you are discovering that each mystery teaching contains a series of deeper and even more unique mysteries to unravel. The path of the Esoteric Wisdom Student is one of growth, understanding and evolution. One must cultivate patience while at the same time, strive to remain open to new experiences, while questioning all experiences until discernment is found, which takes a significant amount of time. Rather than discouraging you from this path, my hope is that as these lessons unfold, that it stimulates your mind and stirs your soul, bringing forth long forgotten memories of who you used to be and who you are meant to be again… You have only to ask these questions to the universe, to begin your journey today. You will discover that each lesson builds from the previous one, methodically piecing together ancient mysteries. When you begin to solve these puzzles and connect the lessons together, you will find yourself becoming an Esoteric Student, preparing to journey into the ancient mysteries. The first step is to delve deeper into what is written here, as there are hidden clues which you will uncover in time…
One of the teachings I share with my students, is the concept of spinning plates. Many students and some teachers believe that it takes an extraordinary amount of effort to access this energy. In the beginning, this is true for many people. However, one of the skills students develop over time is how to connect with the energy, creating the outcome they would like for it to achieve. Once you establish this connection, you need only to check in every so often to make sure it is still turning and twirling in a fashion which you would like for it to continue, recharging it with energy on an occasional basis so that it continues to move. You can see this when you observe a performer twirl plates on sticks. He begins by twirling one plate and then is able to go to the next and the next, until many plates are spinning. He only needs to touch each one gently to keep the momentum going on them. When he tires of the performance and it has lost its appeal, he simply pulls his attention from the plates, and does not give them any further energy, allowing them to come to an ending.
Think on this, where does your energy go, what do you pour your energy into on a daily basis? Are you satisfied with where your energy is going, what plates are spinning over your head right now…
If you have thought this over and these teachings interest and intrigue you, be prepared as you journey further, for the information may cause you to rethink and reconsider almost every aspect of your life.
