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

Increasing Chances for Astral Projection: Learning to Have Consistent Out of Body Experiences (1/3)

Astral travel is an enchanting ability, one of those that inspires mystery and wonder in many people throughout the world. And how wouldn’t it be when it offers potential to explore higher realities, a higher dimension of life in which so many things are possible. Most of people have difficulty with projecting out of their body. Unfortunately, they interpret this as a sign that astral travel is a made up thing because a technique doesn’t work. This of course is jumping to conclusion, which can be testified by the many people who have obtained the direct experience of the reality of astral projection and astral travel.

Even though in its essence astral projection is a simple thing – the mixture of concentration and relaxation – it often time requires more effort and additional information/instruction in order to make it happen. These days many people want to see the reality of astral travel, but because it is craved for for wrong and silly reasons, many will not see it happen. Continue reading

‘The Two Trees’ poem and song

‘The Two Trees’ is a poem written by an Irish poet William Butler Yeats.  He was inspired by Celtic mythology, and has written the poem in the last part of the 19th century. I wasn’t aware of it until I heard the musical composition of the poem, made by Lorenna Mckennit, an interesting Canadian singer and composer of many songs with mystical themes. Continue reading

Third Eye, Clairvoyance, and Sacred Sites in Mexico (Part 2)

Perhaps the most intense experience I had while traveling in Mexico was in the ancient site of Yagul, in Oaxacan Valley. The site was inhabited by Zapotecs, thousands of years ago. There was something special about the mountains surrounding the site, and because it was tucked in and secluded, one could have a richer experience. It was a beautiful sunny day. After walking through this ancient site and trying to get the feel for it, I have sat down under a tree on a courtyard, which in the past has been surrounded by temples. I felt this courtyard had the highest spiritual significance back then, and its positioning in relation to other parts of the city helped strengthen the already manifested wonderment and awe. “Something profound was going on here”, I thought.

Fanatical worship

“Ananda said to the Buddha: “I think there has never been a teacher as great as you, nor will there ever be one as great in the future.”

The Buddha asked: “Have you known all the awakened ones, the buddhas of the past?”

“No, Honored One.”

“And are you able to know all the buddhas of the future?”

“No, Honored One.”

“Then I suppose you do know this awakened one’s mind completely?”

“No, Honored One, I do not even know your mind completely.”

“Then how can you make such a bold statement? It is better to talk what you know than to speculate foolishly.”

– Majjhima Nikaya

There are many  such examples around the world. People seeing there guru/savior/god  as the most developed person that ever existed.  Usually, such blinding viewpoint can hinder a person to get to a knowledge of reality and truth, because they are locking themselves in a very limiting mindset that is ruled by illusion.

Myths about astral travel

There are many myths about astral travel and astral projection which I have encountered. All of them mention some sort of “danger” of astral travel, which makes poor seekers weary as to whether they should continue with the spiritual search or not. What I’ve noticed is that most of the misinformation comes from people who don’t have any substantial astral experience. There are also people who deliberately spread misleading information, while knowing that what they spread is misleading. Such people do not want others to search for the truth for various reasons. Often they are just jealous that someone actually has enough courage to search for the important answers of life. Continue reading
