The Two Lines of Life

“A higher Level of Being is directly above us from moment to moment. It is not in any remote horizontal future but here and now within our own selves, on the Vertical.”
~ Samael Aun Weor

One of the most important teachings passed down by Samael Aun Weor, is that which speaks about the two lines of life – the horizontal line and the vertical line. There is a short chapter dedicated to it in the book Revolutionary Psychology, and he also refers to it in other places as well. It is well known in esoteric schools that life, from the point of view of the spiritual work, can be narrowed down to everyday mundane life (which represents the horizontal line) and the spiritual life (the one that is lived inwardly by applying the efforts to awaken). This latter line of life is the vertical line. Continue reading

The Power behind Blessing of Food, Water, and Items

I still remember that summer evening when my friends and I were sitting outdoors in countryside and about to have dinner. At one point, one of them said a prayer before we started eating. However, they weren’t just saying thanks for the food, but rather the emphasis was on asking the higher beings to bless it with certain qualities. This was new for me, and since then on I experimented more with it to later incorporate this habit into my life. Continue reading

From Unreal to Real, From Darkness to Light

The spiritual work has potential to bring us to the heights of which a lot is written, and which many throughout the history have known about through direct experience. A lot of it can be summed up in an ancient Vedic mantra (also known as the Om Asatoma mantra), which is a form of a prayer, taken from a sacred text called the Upanishads. It goes like this:

Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya
Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya
Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya

Translated, it means: “From ignorance, lead me to knowledge. From darkness, lead me to light. From death, lead me to immortality.” Continue reading

Egyptian Mantra “Eph-Ra-Im” for Activating Consciousness and Psychic Senses

In his short book “The Seven Words”, Samael Aun Weor describes an Egyptian mantra Eph-Ra-Im. It is one of his early books when he was still working in the First mountain (which is a stage of the path to awakening). He describes the power of this mantra and that it has Egyptian origin, of which not much is said, but it is probable that he obtained it in his youth while belonging to the Rosicruscian order of Arnold Krum Heller – an esoteric order that, besides other cultures, also dealt with an esoteric side of ancient Egypt.

Importance of Being Surrounded With Things of High Nature

When a person starts to work on themselves in a psychological-spiritual way, the frequency of their vibration will start to raise. This brings many changes to their life – many spheres of their life are transformed for the better, including how they approach and interact with their environment. One good example is that such a person would not feel comfortable any more living in a house that is cluttered with things and where mess abounds. Continue reading

Astral Shield: For Protection from External Influences

Once someone starts working on themselves psychologically, and once they start experiencing deeper states of relaxation in practices such as meditation and astral projection, they are likely to become more sensitive to energies that surround them. Normally this types of energies are not perceptible to people. It is only when the energy centers of our astral body (also known as chakras) start becoming more active that we will become more sensitive. These chakras are like an intermediate between the multidimensional nature of a person – they channel energies through our inner (higher) bodies (such as etheric and astral bodies) and all the way to our physical bodies and organs. These energy centers are essential for normal workings of the “human machine”, on all of its level: physical, vital, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Continue reading
