SUBTERRANEAN to etheric life are the forces, magnetic forces, which are characteristically manipulated by the healers (such as with Reiki) - the somnambulistic healing, which is uncognized by author and recipient, yet catalytic to certain change.
All systems within the one organized body of Man have both accessible knowledge and memory as to their ordained perfunctory quotas. The organs, their tissue, their bloods, their fibrous membranes supporting, all understand cohesion, form and cooperation. Rejuvenation is often sparked into manifesting by the 'jumpstart' methods of these magnetic impulses. It is possible for the astral/physical complements to become renewed simply by the action of their own recall, returning to the condition of such times as were exemplary to their design and purpose.
Curative forces can be employed in various stages of life:
- Apothecial/medicinal specifics
- Rhythmically, percussively reaffirming
- Lower Astral thought-forms
- Sexual forces (astral only)
- Directional (willed by another)
- By Christ
- Virtue imbibed
EGOIC TRANSVERGENCE- The Holy Spirit's action
- Inspiring reimbodiment
- Impelling life
- Invigorating the 'I'
- Aiding the self-discriminatory processes of 'sorting out'
Physical remedies which are specific emetics or stimulants can beg physical responses within a reasonable range of predictability. A laxative or a bindary can effectively coax the bulk in the bowel, extreme heat will induce sweating, and extreme coldness can inhibit swelling. There can be physical consequence with etheric implications, however the perimeters are largely assessable and not dependent upon any supernatural intervening to effect a supernatural renewal.
Percussive effort in repetitive exercise or simply in repeated movements, brings consciousness into the awakening body. We 'connect' as it were, with the body itself, by such repetition.
If a baby is rocked the very motion will loosen their consciousness from their body and sleep will ensue. Yet if an adult rocks their own body rhythmically they will awaken that body to a further awareness of the ego within; and at the same time, reaffirm their incarnating aspects within the physical existence, bonding better, melding the fluids with the tissue, strengthening the station at all points.
Nourishment is distinct from a specific short-term remedy such is medicine. It is an ongoing goodness (whereas also many remedies are invocative of stimulating substances that are not sustaining but moreover are aggravations, for example).
Nourishment is curative to an otherwise debilitating waning and is characterized by the physical substances offering (on this level) corresponding elements to contribute to the 'dance of particles' as some recede into periods of rest (they do not vacate or expire with permanent cessation), and others are brought back into maintaining a presence. Sustenance 'calls' the cell back into being.
Homoeopathy works out from that first period of life here within the Globe which was then purely etheric in composition - that condition before becoming arraigned by physical splendor. Here we find the deep memory composite to life, inherent to the beings which total themselves within form. The physical substance is given up to its supporting vitality - still very much instilled in character, yet reverting back to the 'innocence' experienced pre-materialization.
Therefore in this process we strip the substance back to reveal its parent powers, and once obtained and captivated in the waters (of a given remedy) this 'pure' substance appeals to the cause of aggravation within the man. You see, we treat a poison's host of complaints with a poison from said time when no element of the Etheric World was hazardous to Man. The corrupted version may impinge upon his organism, or his organism may replicate symptoms corresponding to that corruption in the world (or as part of his own nature), however, it will be the true 'heritage' species intactus that can heal and put right the perversion of itself prone to weaknesses in the physical.
Prayer can predispose both the healer and the recipient to the etheric properties as 'lent' to us by our angelic sponsors. Much of our physical constitution is glued together by the plasmic essences of angelic bi-manifestation. Although angels themselves do not have respective physicality (other than by vaporizing) given to expression through other variable impressionable compounds, they do by their very charity and love for each individual man, surrender portions of their own life's manifesting (on the etheric level) giving them over to our own using.
Not only do these plasmas help to incorporate their natures into that of our own ongoing evolutionary journey, they also bring the grace of delivering life through means we may tolerate and regulate. They are susceptible to impulses which are more highly enlivened than we ordinarily know how to transmute, and they bring us also our sensory interpretations, for example, by communicating with the various beings of sound, of light, of thought and with the required congeniality for such transference.
Prayer can instantly help to affix their presence (apart from also appealing to far higher sources for assistance as well).
Etheric nourishment actually feeds us from Love. When we eat, and the etheric forces are brought to us, we are nourished and live because of the love itself that the plant has for us apparent in those forces - that being its greater life-giving property for us. Likewise there can be a sustaining fulfillment from the love a garden has for its keeper, the love a son draws from his mother (soul to soul - any love does nurture and infill). Foremostly it is the love of Christ which is that chief influence manifest in all etheric life and its life-giving properties.
Lower astral thought-forms can be persuaded to endow an individual therapeutically in that they can convey remedial hostages of imported thought. A man's vitality or general wellbeing may become weakened by such ideas living in the ethers around him, which denigrate him. Whether they are of his own contrivance or of another's, the consequence of such attacking thought-forms usually results in a poor receptivity to that love which would otherwise etherically nourish him (from other sources).
It need not be a verbal criticism to aggravate the individual; any thought which carries so much as a doubt shall effectively strangle and violate some part of their constitution somewhere, if only momentarily.
However it is the nature of thought-forms to be persistent and live also in echo, prolonging the denigration. Similarly also, good thought-forms of a positive nature can be incorporated and challenging to any other that might otherwise cause hindrance and possibly disease by their assuming negativity.
Sexual forces astrally live on, having been imparted to the fetus by both the mother and the father, continuing throughout his life to be. These forces are deeply connected with those properties of impelling desire, and although can be utilized with but a mundane propriety, are utmostly holy in both origin and attribute.
Desires are intrinsic to a consciousness that yearns for expansiveness - for more - for that which it has not. If it were not for the desire as known by Heaven we would not have become apparent (or 'a parent' ☺) - being born out from that one holy desire to perceive and feel and know life through us.
The sexual forces offer a divine correspondence between that desire and the life love brings, creating yet further desire and so forth. From soul to soul there needs be a signatory qualification (unlike the animals, but in similar terms insofar as animals cannot combine outside their own signatory species) which transmutes these forces into yet higher incorporations.
Although the moon-consciousness conducted radical healings through impersonal means, whereby this element was employed, it is now but a cause of death and sickness if the coupling is without the merit of the higher love within the act. One will not naturally invoke the other as it has done in the past. However, by those unions which are considerate to each other there becomes a health and healing in the very process.
Directional and willed astral healing falls into the category mentioned in the opening paragraphs. These magnetic persuasions are not to be confused (though often are mistaken for) actual 'life' or ethericism. The astral forces are deceased by their ongoing nature of the past being held and repeated ... their sublimation within the healing processes is largely chaotic and often the very cause of deformities such as cancerous inclusions, because of the parasitical nature the lower astralities possess.
If the healer believes that he may invoke or manipulate the forces pertaining to the higher starry domains, then he may be experiencing their starlight mirrored upon the waters of his own self. However, the actual idea of willfully directing these higher powers is tantamount to a fish wishing to own its own barbecue - something he can't achieve under the water, and won't live to see above the water (unless fried, and even then he shan't be able to live and experience it at the same time also).
The Etherized Physical
As Christ Himself becomes livingly enveloped within the physical substances, we shall find in consequence that matter shall achieve its own permanency - it will hold the power to remain, rather than desist and corrupt as it does do today.
As we endeavor to incorporate the living present day Christ into our own being, His Life literally begins renewal upon that matter which does comprise ourselves. In this (though a slower process than most would realize) the notion of the resurrected body is most true in action and in consequence.
Virtues saturating our etheric demeanor enable our bodies to correspondingly begin this process of the resurrection of matter. Not only do we redeem ourselves spiritually, but we rework and makeover creatively that substance and anima which does so lovingly cleave to us.
Procreation: in terms of this world, the mineral kingdom procreates itself with the lesser gods who chose to bring their favors into the earth, conjoining with the devas who remain attracted to their organic composts made fertile to the crystalline force.
In the Kingdom of Nature procreation is not second-nature but first-nature as an expression of untamed Love. In Man, whereupon the consummation is cordially conducted ego to ego (as well as being respective to the astral/higher astral/etheric impulses) we find that forces of procreation offer the world a relaxed and plastic expression of being, and this in turn allows the very procreative forces to transmute the life before them, furthering that expression of life as they go.
What we may examine here is that any act of divine mutuality brings new life into the world (and it may or may not be incorporated in the physical marriage of two, but rather in the more esoteric of meanings, relates to the divine unions as culminating in the expression of true creativity performed).
The Holy Spirit empowers that necessary surge which breaks open our way into this world from the very beginning. One may well presume that the intensity of such an effort could not be achieved merely by the power of our own will and want. It is indeed only by the drive and fire of our divine and blessed Holy Spirit that we are so rapidly delivered from one world into the next: from sleep into waking, from death, birth, and then death.
Underpinning the life of the Etheric world is the supreme life force of the Divine and Holy Spirit. Not only does the Holy Spirit impel all life therefore, it does also hold a key action within the 'I' of Man, invigorating the power and presence of all self-consciousness. There is no quicker concurrence than between self and self, and the empowerment to this speedy activity of self revelation is again, our 'Life behind all life' - the Holy Spirit. (Just as our dear Christ is the veritable 'Light behind the light', the Holy Spirit is the 'Life behind all life'.)
Here we come to that part in our therapeutic index which does attempt to deal with the question concerning irregularities experienced, often caused by the very healing brought about by the fiery action of the Spirit within, as it reignites the powers of the ego and seeks to re-establish its presence within the fraying body without.
At the heart of this form of healing (as differentiated from the others listed above) is the ennobling of the individual concerned, for the individual that he is, in all that that means. It would be a contradiction of terms to expect that at this primal level the healer himself can effect the transformation, rather than the patient himself. Remotely other practices may affect the causal body and so enliven it, but in this instance we are managing to re-introduce life in its rawest of vitalities to an ego which is flaccid and poorly and needs be self stimulated from the inside, rather than by exterial means from another.
Death to the ego of a man also denotes death to his soul as well. Above any other physical ailment the sickness of the ego itself is alone much more remarkably sinister and tragic. As an affliction it is evident that the 'I' of Man is very much in need of some serious healing. Usually the ideas surrounding the ego of present day Man indicate terms of development or of deep wanting, yet we would suggest that further to this are problems of a serious order - observable maladies that are not of themselves given to improvement as they currently are.
A healthy ego, for example, would and could endorse our Christ - if not by the immediate perception and language, it could still embrace Him in all that represents Him and honor that well. Even the immature ego of an underling comprehends and discriminates those influences outside of his own which bear beneficence or harbor some malevolence, depending; but not so in many a man today.
Sadly there is a growing evidence of a further forfeiture of selfhood, manhood and even that of universal being. Our community is dispersed with tensions that cause great difficulties within the minds of most. There are psychic afflictions, physiological assaults, and an assortment of individuals, half whom act as egoic terrorists to the other half who are forever in question of their own capability and of Christ's.
When an individual has suffered a chronic condition which is most suddenly altered in pattern from that which they have come to know and expect, and when that condition has been effected by a healing which has worked through the very Holy Spirit within that individual and brought about such changes, igniting yet further life and enlivening their being because, there will be a fresh start offered to their egoic condition, and their 'i' will become yet an 'I' - upstanding, tactile, and once again strong enough to execute the arterial desires where needed.
It is natural at such a time for a 'healing crisis' to occur concurrently as an act of a tenant reclaiming his home; the unwanted lodgers are to be thrown out from the body. The ego itself believes itself strong enough to take on the unwanted influences, whatever they be, however they are manifesting in the shadows or stubbornly protest.
Subsequent to this, when a man reclaims himself in this way there will be such sorting out to deal with, not only within his physical health, but also in relation to the many facets of his active life. It is a time to readdress all of that which has formerly impinged upon the selfhood, but hitherto was not stood up to and abandoned.
Death is not the worst consequence of illness. In many instances death resolves problems that would otherwise (on many levels) pursue an individual into a greater grief, would that they persisted in those ways they appear to be so locked down in. Although we do not condone death in any fashion, reasonably the healer may look to their dear subject and incorporate within his thinking that it may well be the ego which he seeks firstly to deliver to the man, before that of the resurrected body. The resurrected body will eventually come of itself, given that the man can retain his ego and work it through to the service of Christ - yet this cannot be effected if his ego itself does not remain intact.
So when we look to the health and healing of any individual before us, we are mindful that our prayers and concerns for them pertain to what it may be that they mostly do need. It is a matter of true priority, and even though quite sadly we cannot hasten a full recovery in every way on every level within just one soul's constitution, we can help them to begin on the very pathway that will eventually restore them so.
It is a good work, and truly a most profitable one. The next paper shall deal with the issues concerning the protection and wellbeing of the healer himself.
God bless you Dears...
