Mythological Symbolism of the Great Work: The Hero’s Journey Towards the Source

Throughout the world the great inner struggle, or the Great War that takes place inside a person that aspires to reunite with their Being/Higher Self has been depicted in many different forms, throughout ages and continents. In more recent times, when our world has plunged into the jaws of materialism, this Great War has been interpreted as something external, as if we are to defeat an enemy, or a group of enemies that are outside of us, belonging to this or that community or race. But this tremendous struggle, that is such a big part of human mythology, is in reality the one that is taking place within, and is showing us what is needed in order to succeed in this Great Path that is leading towards the Self-realization of our Being.

Samael Aun Weor’s Mirror Practice to Strengthen Your Soul

Some time ago I encountered this interesting practice/petition from a book called Introduction to Gnosis by Samael Aun Weor. In it he describes how to get in closer contact with ones own soul, and how to try strengthening it with a petition that is done in front of a mirror. This can be very useful if we struggle in our inner work, when our will is succumbing to that of the egos, when it seems to us that we are not ascending in a proper way, or that we are stagnant, unable to lift up from the ground. It seems that often time our work needs an extra boost, beyond the Three Keys for liberation. An aid can then be found in petitons, working with energies as explained by awakened masters, different sorts of prayers, and overall being open to receive a lot of help. The petition from the book goes like this: Continue reading

Hardships and Difficulties while doing the Gnostic Work

Hardships are a common theme throughout life, and are not uncommon in our inner work. In the later case they can take on a different note, and that’s because of the nature of the spiritual work. By this I do not mean that life becomes harder when the inner work is applied, but rather that we become more conscious of life’s hardships. In a normal case (that of a person who is not doing the inner work), they would go through hardships in a mechanical way, half-conscious of the suffering that they go through. Many then look for some sort of relief by indulging into different pleasures of life in order to forget the pain, not wanting to know that this pendulum of pleasure and pain will not resolve the issue that they are dealing with.

The Third Eye by Lobsang Rampa (book review)

“The Third Eye” was the first book of an author called Tuesday Lobsang Rampa, published in 1956, soon afterwards to become a global bestseller. The story of this author is quite interesting. Lobsang Rampa was supposedly an advanced Tibetan lama who lived in the 19th century Tibet. Some time after he passed away from his life, an Englishman was contacted through a metaphysical mean in the 20th century, and was asked if he is willing to let go of his physical body so that a Tibetan lama Lobsang Rampa could use it, because the latter had a mission to fulfill and he needed a mature body that he could use.

Experience of Clairvoyance during “Om Namah Shivaya” mantra

It is said that spiritual perceptions and experiences of such kind are gifts from divine beings, as well as our own Being. These type of experiences can come when we least expect them, giving us a flavour of our latent potential and helping us peak “beyond the veil”. This is what happened to me during my time in Canada. I spent about a week in a retreat center, somewhere in the forests of Ontario. The area was gorgeous with many lakes, beautiful lush forests, and a rich animal life. During one of the mornings we gathered in the practice room (which was actually a tent) to chant the mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Continue reading

Is Fearing and Avoiding Astral Realms Necessary?

Astral travel is a fantastic ability that many would like to develop, but for many this thought of consciously stepping out of their body brings up fear, not knowing if they will come back, or fearing the unknown etc. On top of that, some 19th century occult writers, such as Helena Blavatsky, have also contributed to spreading this fear of astral planes by saying that it’s better to avoid it all together because of its illusionary nature and temptation that is to be found there. However, there is much more to the astral realms then what has been said by Theosophists and those who fear travelling there. Continue reading
