Awakening the Oracle
Path of Eight OraclesGeburah: 3rd Sidereal Month
Sixth Oracle eDiscourse: Mental Body Awakening
No matter what degree of Mystical Attunement, and level of Psychical Ability you now have, the following Psychical Exercise will assist to enhance and unify, these attainments from your past efforts.
To Awaken the Alta Major Chakra, do the following:
1. Lay down to rest for a short while each day, at around the same time.
2. Lay comfortably on your back, rest your hands at your sides, or together over your Solar Plexus. Close your eyes and roll them upwards for several minutes (to switch from Mundane to Psychic Consciousness), while focusing your attention on the base of your Alta Major Chakra (the nape area, centred where the back of your neck meets the base of your skull).
3. After you relax your closed eyes to their normal position, continue to focus on your nape for 20 to 30 minutes, or as your Intuition informs you.
4. After a week or so, and within 4 weeks (i.e. a Sidereal Month), you may suddenly have a most unusual Psychical Experience. In Martinism it is vaguely described as the "Circulation of Astral Images". My experience of this is given below. Your experience of the Circulation of Astral Images may be different, it all depends on our individual needs as determined by our Spirit.
In my case, one day while performing this Psychical Exercise, I felt my head Aetherically Expand to the size of a large room, forming an Aetheric Sacred Space, and I was seated on a chair at the nape of my neck (see Figure 13 on Page 35 of Liber Aether). From this position I was looking into the Aetheric Temple, but I could only look straight ahead, and a bit to the sides. If I started to look up I noticed an Aetheric Mist, and started to break the Psychical Condition, and began to go back to Mundane Consciousness, so I just relaxed and keep looking ahead. In my peripheral vision I could then see emerging from just behind my chair, a single-file, rhythmic, procession of people, an arm's length apart, and they were alternately male and female (i.e. Pairs of Twin Flames). They emerged to my right, and moved Anticlockwise (i.e. Deosil, as I was in the Southern Hemisphere). They moved in sync very slowly, their legs striding diagonally, as much to the side as forward, a gliding stride then feet together taking one second, then standing still and pausing for three seconds. All the while I could feel a One-Beat-Per-Second Rhythmic Vibration — DUM, Dum, Dum, Dum; DUM, Dum, Dum, Dum; . . . — timing this Procession of the Circle of 24 Flames (see Figure 6 on Page 21, Discussion of Figure 10 on Page 28, Discussion of Figure 16 on Page 40, and Figure 16 on Page 41 of Liber Aether). Once the leader was directly in front of me, he was around 6 metres or 20 feet away, on the opposite side of the Aetheric Temple, and the procession had now formed a Perfect Semicircle. From then on, when they were directly in front of me, occasionally one would bend down to my eye level, and turn towards me during the three second pause, so that their face was no longer obscured by the Aetheric Mist. They would look me straight in the eye, and I could see who they were. Some I already knew from this lifetime, while others I did not recognise yet, but I then met them later on in this life. Eventually, just as they started to form a Complete Circle, I noticed in my peripheral vision, that the line had come to an end. Thus, all 22 of my Near Twins had appeared, along with my Twin Flame, and together with me, my Circle of 24 Flames was now complete. I then felt a sense of sadness, as I realised that this very special Psychical Experience would soon be over. The leader of the procession then disappeared from my peripheral view. One-by-one they completed the circuit of their slow, rhythmic, pausing, Ritualistic March behind my chair. As the last one — my Twin Flame — moved from view, and the Rhythmic Beat faded, my head Aetherically Contracted back to normal size, and I returned to Mundane Consciousness, and opened my eyes and reflected on the Sublime Ritual that had just transpired.
I performed this exercise every afternoon, at around 2 p.m., for about two weeks during February 1986. Then one afternoon, I started to experience my head expand, and was sitting in the chair along with the rhythmic vibration. I looked around, but by so doing broke the Magick of the experience. However, I then knew what was in store, and that I should remain calm, and be more receptive and passive for the experience. The next day I re-entered the Psychical State very quickly, and the above is my recollection of that experience, along with my present understanding. I have not had this Psychical Experience again.
The founder of the modern Martinist Order, Papus (Dr Gérard Encausse), informs us in his book Reincarnation: Physical, Astral and Spiritual Evolution, that the basis of this Psychical Exercise, is of Ancient Egyptian origin. He further explains, that the Ancient Egyptian Initiates, called this Magnetisation of the Nape of the Neck, Sa, and that the Spirit communicates with us by sending Symbolic Images to this Centre, from its abode in the region of the Pole Star (see Discussion of Figure 9 on page 26 of Liber Aether). This Psychic Centre (see Discussion of Figure 13 on Page 34 of Liber Aether) is the bodily equivalent, of the Unifying Veil called Daath in the Kabbalah (see Discussion of Figure 3 on Page 14 and Figure 3 on Page 15 of Liber Aether).
Do the above Psychical Exercise daily for a Sidereal Month, or until you experience the Procession of the Circle of 24 Flames, within that Timeframe. Then your Sacred Circle advanced studies continue at the Seventh Oracle eDiscourse.
