Manly P. Hall – The Ways Of The Lonely Ones

Manly Hall Early Writings

Have you read Manly P. Hall’s second book? The Ways Of The Lonely Ones is an absolute favorite of mine and I wanted to write this post sharing my key takeaways. The short book is separated into allegorical stories that share insights into the lives of ascended masters around the world. Through the fictional stories shared in the book, the reader is able to contemplate the meaning of spiritual awakening and our purpose here on Earth.

The book shares different stories that have a moral. In a sense, each one is a parable meant to teach a different lesson to the reader. The book includes a story of an “Old Man of the Mountain” who lives in the middle of the forest, surrounded by animal companions. It also includes the tale of an elder alchemist who realizes the secret of the “philosophers stone” after a lifetime of study; only to find that this realization inspires him to return back to the world he had left behind in search of these alchemical secrets. Inside of this book, Manly Hall encourages the reader to think on the nature of human existence and spiritual enlightenment.

Written at the age of 21, this book is a testament to the intuitive wisdom possessed by the young Manly Hall. By reading his work, you will realize that spiritual insight is not the exclusive domain of those with extensive experience and study. The most simple truths stand the test of time.

Manly P. Hall’s book The Ways Of The Lonely Ones is under $10 on Amazon – check it out here:

On this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien Podcast, I read my favorite of these allegorical stories:

It is called “The One Who Turned Back”.

Listen to this episode of the show to experience one of these powerful stories at work:

If you enjoyed this story, the rest of the book will inspire you and enlighten your spiritual journey.

 

Psilocybin Cubensis & MDMA Therapy Cure PTSD & Depression

Why Psilocybin Cubensis & MDMA Therapy Saves Lives

Psilocybin Cubensis and MDMA therapy has been shown in clinical trials to cure PTSD and depression. Thanks to the work done by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), psilocybin therapy and MDMA therapy have been approved for clinical trials to discover the healing benefits involved in using these medicines.

After a ground-breaking study at Johns Hopkins University, the world was alerted to the reality that psilocybin cubensis has a powerful ability to heal depression.

MDMA therapy has been shown to relieve and heal symptoms of PTSD. Additionally, plant medicines like Ayahuasca have been shown by MAPS to heal drug addiction, amongst other benefits. Psychedelics are becoming mainstream in our world because their power to overcome trauma is second-to-none.

On this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien podcast, I spoke with doctoral student Muhsin Corbbrey about the power of psilocybin cubensis and MDMA therapy. At the university of Arizona, Muhsin is comparing the benefits of psilocybin therapy and MDMA therapy against the dangers of mainstream SSRIs and other toxic medicines prescribed by medical professionals.

Listen to this episode to learn how psilocybin therapy and MDMA assisted psychotherapy are healing our world:

The power of psychedelic planets is surfacing. Since the days of our ancestors, the healing ability of these medicines has been known. Here at the end of 2021, the world is waking up and beginning to think for themselves instead of listening to the spoon-fed narrative pushed by the mainstream media. As a result, humanity is healing.

Psilocybin Therapy For Depression

Psilocybin cubensis therapy has been shown by Johns Hopkins to have a dramatic effect on depression. The psilocybin molecule is similar in appearance to the serotonin molecule responsible for happiness and joy inside of our brains. Research has shown that depression results from an imbalance in serotonin and a loss of the bodies ability to create this molecule. Psilocybin therapy allows the body to jumpstart its production of serotonin and once again begin to create this important molecule responsible for human happiness.

Using psilocybin cubensis causes a person to face their fears and heal their trauma. Have you had an experience with psilocybin cubensis? Known as “magic mushrooms” for a reason, the magical fungus activates receptors in the brain that can cause hallucinations or  profound out-of-body experiences. Inside of these heightened states of consciousness, a person confronts the spiritual forces that govern our world and help humans to move through the planes of correspondence.

When you have an experience with psilocybin cubensis, you unlock your spiritual ability to commune with different planes of existence. You confront the demons within yourself. You evolve your consciousness and expand what is possible for your body to achieve.

MDMA therapy

As a result of this profound experience, the body changes. Trauma is stored genetically and carried down throughout centuries of human progress and growth. If you have had a traumatic experience, this is stored in your DNA and causes issues throughout the rest of your life.

When you undergo psilocybin therapy, you allow your body to release this trauma and create new patterns. By having an intense psychedelic experience, you re-wire your brain and allow sections once separated to become whole again. When your brain is functioning at a heightened state of awareness, it is able to have epiphanies that last a lifetime. Scientific research is finding that these heightened states of consciousness result in lasting change that re-program the brain in ways that psychedelic explorers have reported since these substances began to be used.

MDMA Therapy

MDMA therapy for PTSD has become popular as a result of the work done by MAPS. By engaging in clinical trials for decades using pure MDMA, the MAPS organization has pioneered a way-forward for humanity that will result in the eradication of PTSD. The work done in clinical trials has demonstrated that MDMA assisted psychotherapy creates lasting change in patients who have suffered from PTSD for a lifetime.

Using MDMA for therapy has been around for decades but its use is becoming mainstream. Through clinical trials performed by MAPS, the substance has been found to re-wire the part of the brain which holds onto trauma. By engaging in MDMA therapy, a person is able to release these traumatic events and process them once and for all.

When a traumatic event happens, our mind shuts down to stop us from experiencing the trauma. Our body goes into a sort of “auto-pilot” as a result of the traumatic incident. While our brains and bodies are in this traumatized state, we are unable to process the event. As a result, the traumatic event gets stuck inside of our brain and remains in that place like a clogged drain. Until the event is processed by our brain, our body continues to act as-if the event is still ongoing. By understanding trauma, we can see why war veterans still “duck in cover” when a loud noise goes off or why a traumatized person might lash-out against innocent people. The brain still believes the traumatic event is happening in that moment!

When a person undergoes MDMA therapy for PTSD, they are able to process these events.

It requires the individual to confront their demons and remember the traumatic event that happened. While in the state induced through MDMA therapy, the individual experiences the event in their mind and remembers what happened so that the brain can process and heal. By having this experience inside of a safe space, the body is able to release the trauma. Early reports suggest that MDMA assisted psychotherapy destroys PTSD and allows victims to heal.

Psilocybin Cubensis & MDMA Therapy For ALL!

Using psilocybin cubensis in a therapy setting can heal depression while MDMA assisted psychotherapy heals previous trauma stored in the body. Together, these therapies can assist our species in evolving to become the best versions of ourselves. Have you had an experience with psilocybin cubensis or MDMA therapy? Write below in the comments and let us know about your healing adventure.

In my life, psilocybin cubensis therapy has been effective. Over a period of years, I was able to re-wire my brain, heal trauma, and experience a spiritual awakening that changed how I view the nature of reality. During this time, I took control of my physical reality and began to step out of the victim story I had been feeding myself. This substance changed my life forever and saved me from mental health problems I was otherwise experiencing. By helping me to confront the darkness within myself, I was able to integrate my shadow and transmute it into the light.

MDMA therapy and psilocybin therapy should be available for all humanity. Although these substances have been demonized inside of our civilization the last few decades, they have been included in our history since it began. In the mysteries at Eleusis, initiates drank a psychedelic beverage that transported them into another dimension where they would undergo their initiation. In Native American cultures, youths would have a vision quest using the peyote plant medicine to initiate them into adulthood. In the Amazon rainforest, ayahuasca ceremony has been used for thousands of years to help tribes heal and seek spiritual guidance. In Scandinavia, the amanita muscaria mushroom has been used for ceremony and healing purposes. All over the world, these plants have had a powerful place in society.

It is time that psychedelics reclaim their proper place in the eyes of the western world. They are a powerful medicine that heals PTSD and depression, amongst a host of other ailments. Furthermore, these plants unlock a spiritual awakening inside of a person that cannot be stopped once it begins. This initiation is the birthright of humanity and cannot be denied.

The spiritual awakening is happening across the world. How is this impacting your world? Write in the comments and share your experience.

Laws Of Attraction & Manifestation

Laws Of Attraction & Manifestation For Beginners

Laws of attraction & manifestation go hand in hand. In 2021, spiritual awakening is happening all over the world. Our species is becoming more self aware. Humanity is becoming spiritually awake and it does not matter what religion you follow or belief system you practice. Millions of people are asking “does manifestation actually work?” Is it possible to manifest your ideal life through the law of attraction? If so, how does manifestation work and how can you get started manifesting?

The law of attraction & manifestation hit the mainstream media when The Secret book and movie phenomena gripped the world. This book about the law of attraction and manifestation first introduced the public to the idea that our thoughts are causative and have an effect on our physical world. Although The Secret and other books like it have been met with skepticism, these teachings have been practiced for thousands of years. Learning how to manifest is an important part of undergoing a spiritual awakening and it is a secret that has been taught since the ancient Mystery Schools of antiquity.

When a person becomes spiritually awake, they often begin to question the nature of reality. For most people, this is a lonely time where they experience the world in a new light. Are you going through a spiritual awakening? If so, you are in the right spot. Instead of being affected by their environment around you, learn how to manifest and use the law of attraction to create your ideal life. Although it does not happen overnight, you can learn the basics of manifestation and get started today.

laws of attraction manifestation
How do the laws of attraction & manifestation work together? Manifestation is the action (the verb) that you conduct in order to create your reality through the laws of attraction. When you understand the law, manifestation becomes a central part of your life. You begin to understand that what you experience is a manifestation of your internal states and external actions. “As within, so without. As above, so below” says Hermes Trismegistus, the greatest of sages.

Through the laws of attraction, manifestation magnetizes your desires into your physical reality. When you understand that you have the ability to magnetically attract your desires to yourself, your understanding of reality changes. For many people, this can be a frightening concept because it throws a “monkey wrench” into our cherished views of reality. However, when you lean into the laws of attraction and use manifestation to create your ideal life, everything changes. This is how you manifest the kingdom of Heaven inside of your life.

Here is how to start manifestation even if you are a complete beginner…

How Does Manifestation Work?

Learning how to manifest through the laws of attraction is easier if you understand how manifestation works. In the ancient Hermetic philosophy, it was taught to initiates of the Mystery Schools that we exist in a great cosmic mind. As said in the Kybalion: “the universe is mental”. In other words, the foundational building block of reality is consciousness. In modern days, quantum physics is validating what the sages and mystics of all cultures have always known. At the foundation of our reality is a sort of wavelength from which all of reality springs into being, similar to the way that a video game loads when you insert it into your xBox and hit the power button. The first Hermetic principle of mentalism is gaining traction and entering into our mainstream conversation.

When you understand that the universe is composed of mind and consciousness, the law of attraction and manifestation make more sense. The reason why manifestation works and why you can create your reality with your mind is because everything is consciousness. When you utilize your consciousness to mold and shape the world around you, reality responds because it is fundamentally composed of mind.

Manifestation examples exist throughout nature. For instance, when you drop a stone into a pool of water, it creates a ripple in the water. Little ripples shoot out from where the stone first met the water. Think of your mind in the same way. When you project your wavelength out into the world around you, it creates a ripple in the conscious world. This ripple effect has an impact on your world because everything is composed of consciousness. Our universe is mental. When you create mental imprints on your environment, you affect your physical reality.

The laws of attraction work in your favor when manifestation is done with conscious force. The more you understand why your abilities work, the more you believe in yourself. Since your power of belief increases the frequency of your vibration, you have a stronger impact on the world around you. The more you believe in the power of belief, the stronger belief becomes… Kinda like in all those Christmas movies where Santa Clause becomes more real the more the children believe.

Let’s learn about how to begin manifesting even if you are a complete beginner…

Best Manifestation Method

How do we get started manifesting? Here is a secret… You have been manifesting since you were born!

Your life is a manifestation of what your soul decided to create here on Earth before you arrived. Manifestation of the spirit into the physical world is the purpose of human life. When we self-realize and awaken to our full potential, we complete The Great Work and become the masters of our destiny. We begin to create our world as an active participant instead of being pushed around by the circumstances of life. Instead of living as a victim, we become the active creator.

The more you amplify the wavelength coming from your body, the greater the impact you have on your environment. Learning how to manifest through the laws of attraction requires that you do more than think your day away… You must take action on what you desire to manifest. In his book The Doctrine & Ritual of High Magick, Eliphas Levi writes that “to be, one must do! It is action that creates life.” If you sit around all day thinking about your ideal life and hoping it will magically arrive someday, you will ask “does manifestation actually work?” Once you begin to take action towards your goals, the laws of attraction begins to work in your favor and you start to manifest your desires.

Without action, nothing happens. Think of manifestation like firing a gun into the universe. Your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions make-up the bullet that goes into the gun. Without the bullet, the gun is of no use. However, if you fail to the pull the trigger, the gun will never fire. I call this the manifestation pyramid because all ingredients have to exist for manifestation to work. If you fail to the pull the trigger on your goals, they will never appear. If you take action but fail to use your mind’s ability to manifest your reality, then your actions will be less productive and often lead you nowhere.

The best manifestation method is when you combine positive thoughts with firm belief and take constant action every day, all while feeling that your goals have already been accomplished.

Do you want to manifest a specific goal? Follow these steps to manifest a job, relationship, new home, creation of a business, or anything else you desire…

How To Start Manifestation

Are you trying to manifest a job or use the law of attraction to launch a new business? Realize that you need to move energy in the direction of those goals every day. If you want to manifest the job of your dreams or build the business you know you were meant to create, you need to take determined action in those directions. Do not wait for life to happen to you. Instead, grasp the “scepter of power” spoken about in the Kybalion and insist on your reality changing in accordance with your will.

As written by Orison Swett Marden in An Iron Will, “A man who can resolve vigorously upon a course of action, and turns neither to the right nor the left, though a paradise tempt him, who keeps his eyes upon the goal, whatever distracts him, is sure of success.”… Also to quote Emerson, “There is always room for a man of force!”

Do you want to get started manifesting your ideal life? Set a goal for yourself, believe you can accomplish this, feel in your body that your goal has already been accomplished, think constantly about how you will achieve your desires, and take constant action every day towards that direction. In so doing, you will manifest your goals into the physical plane.

Manifestation through the law of attraction can take time. The greater the goal, the more energy you have to move in that direction. Do not be discouraged if your manifestations do not appear overnight, some can take years while others happen in an instant. Begin to move your energy towards your goal every day and you will manifest your dreams. To once again quote Eliphas Levi, “What you wish for shall be done, and it has already been started for you and by you.”

Get started and take action!


Spiritually Awake – The Process Of Spiritual Awakening




Are You Spiritually Awake?

The process of spiritual awakening is hitting our planet like an asteroid. All over the world, human beings are beginning a process of awakening and ascension that is evolving and expanding our planet. The collective consciousness is springing into life and more people are beginning the process of spiritual awakening. Are you undergoing a process of spiritual awakening? You are probably wondering “what does spiritual awakening mean?” It can be a confusing topic. Here’s the good news: spiritual awakening is nothing new. In fact, it is one of the oldest processes and events. In the ancient mystery schools, the process of spiritual awakening was called “initiation” and it was administered to those brave souls who entered the schools and dedicated their lives to the service of humanity.

Are you going through a spiritual awakening? Listen to this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien podcast to find clarity during this confusing time.

Being spiritually awake gives a person awareness of the true nature of reality. It is a time of stepping into your soulful purpose and realizing that you are a soul having a human experience. When we lean into our spiritual awakening process and trust the journey, everything changes. If you are wondering how to start your spiritual journey, it begins with a powerful realization. When you grasp the truth that you are a soul having a human experience, and you feel that awareness permeate your being, you are beginning the process of spiritual awakening. When you become spiritually awake, you have a profound understanding that you create your reality and you begin to choose the experiences in your life. You become the cause inside of your physical world instead of being affected by everything in your environment.

When you choose the path of spiritual awakening and trust the path before you, everything changes.

There is no “spiritual awakening test” to gauge if you are spiritually awake or not… Instead, it is a personal journey of inner work that lasts your entire life. In fact, there are levels of spiritual awakening and you will find that each new level provides new challenges, questions, and answers. The Mayans depicted the process of spiritual awakening inside of their calendar. They believed in nine different levels that humans ascend through over the course of their spiritual journey. When you are beginning spirituality, all of this can be overwhelming. You might be confused about the symptoms you experience as you begin your journey to become spiritually awake.

Here is an episode of the podcast where I interviewed Dr. Calleman and we dove deep into discussing the Mayan theory of cosmogony and the nine levels of consciousness:

Your spiritual awakening is your own journey towards joining the house of the immortals written about by Manly P. Hall. When you undergo a spiritual awakening process, you gain an awareness that death is not the end of life. In fact, death is just one more ascension into a new level of consciousness. The soul carries on after death. When the soul leaves the body, it returns to source through an evolutionary process that does not stop after death. Instead, death is only the entry into new levels of reality. When you understand that your soul is immortal and you begin to identify with your soul more than your body, you become immortal. Although your body may one day perish, your soul lives forever.

Becoming spiritually awake means that you are stepping into this path of total realization of your soul’s power to create and manifest your world.

Spiritual Awakening Symptoms

How do you know if you are beginning a process of spiritual awakening? Are there symptoms of a spiritual awakening? Becoming spiritually awake is often the hardest time of a person’s life. In the ancient mystery schools, this process was called “initiation” for a reason. During a spiritual awakening, your karma catches up with you immediately. At first, this can be overwhelming because it feels like your entire world is crashing down around you. Many people report experiencing breakups, job losses, dramatic shifts in living situations, and losing friends. Why do these things happen during a spiritual awakening?

Spiritual awakening is a process of evolution that unlocks new abilities. As said by Uncle Ben in Spiderman: “With great power comes great responsibility”. The period of karmic cleansing is essential to ensure that only the worthiest souls complete the process of becoming spiritually awake. Although it might feel at first that your world is falling apart, this destruction only creates the way forward for you to step into your true potential. Your negative karma will stop affecting you when you learn the lessons meant to be learned and forgive yourself for previous mistakes.

My process of becoming spiritually awake was the hardest time of my life. In a period of six months, I broke up with my ex-wife, lost many of my friends, got fired from a job, and was forced to move to another part of the world against my wishes. This was happening at the exact same time that I was having some of the most profound spiritual experiences and realizations of my life. At the time, I had just begun reading the Kybalion and was experiencing the initiation that goes hand in hand with that book. If you have read any “initiatory books” in the past, you will know what I mean. It seemed as if the book was helping me have the most profound spiritual experiences of my life by tearing down the veils that I had been refusing to look behind.

During my process of spiritual awakening, I learned valuable lessons. If I told a lie (even a white lie), it was discovered almost instantly. If I was speeding on the highway, I would get pulled over by a police officer and issued a ticket. Any time I made a mistake at work, it was revealed and highlighted. It felt as if I had a spirit hanging over my head who was demanding I do the right thing at all times, or face the consequences of my actions. Becoming spiritually awake carries a hefty dose of responsibility because you begin to gain dominion over your physical reality. Such power can be used for ill means if given to the wrong person. The forces that govern spiritual awakening and initiation ensure that only the worthy are given the keys to the kingdom of heaven. In my case, I had to spend a few months dealing with the darkest parts of myself in order to succeed.

Here’s the good news about becoming spiritually awake: the process of karmic cleansing comes to an end when you learn the lessons you are meant to learn and when you forgive yourself for your past mistakes. In my case, I was not able to move forward until I broke up with a toxic partner, distanced myself from toxic people, left work that did not fulfill me, stopped speeding, and stopped telling lies. Once I forgave myself for the mistakes I had made over the years, the karmic switch was flipped.

The process of spiritual awakening carries with it the symptoms of evolution and growth. Many people report symptoms of spiritual awakening that include sickness, purging, seeing “angel numbers” like 1111 everywhere, a dissolution of your previous life, and much more. At the end of the day, these side effects of the spiritual awakening process are just your bodies way of evolving and embracing a new energy.

When you start to become spiritually awake, everything that is going to happen to you happens quickly… The good and the bad!

Thankfully, the good karma catches up with you just as much as the bad karma that must be cleared.

How To Have Spiritual Awakening Without Suffering

Becoming spiritually awake does not have to be difficult. Once you learn the lessons that need to be learned and you clear your negative karma, the good karma begins to come back ten-fold. Just as your negative actions from the past and present catch up with you, your good actions begin to return to you as well. Once you do the hard “shadow work” to heal yourself and fix your life, you open the doorway to the kingdom of heaven on earth. Your physical reality begins to shift and you start to experience the magic of the universe as a constant stream of happiness that you get to control.

The process of spiritual awakening can feel like fighting a demon. This demonic force is the manifested form of your shadow. Although it can feel like an outside entity, this shadow being is your own trauma, fear, hatred, and other negative emotions. Once you face the dweller on the threshold to the higher planes of consciousness, you enter the halls of the immortals and begin to have more control over your life. Over time, you learn that the dweller who guards this place inside of yourself is actually one of your greatest friends and teachers. Instead of fearing this shadow-self, you integrate the shadow into your consciousness and begin to heal yourself for good.

After you have begun the process of healing yourself, things change. Instead of always ending up on the downside of your negative karmic back-lash, you experience all the good karma that you are creating. Here is the secret about karma: it is your greatest tool and friend in creating your reality. If you are focused on always doing the right thing and you never veer from the path of righteousness, then you can trust that karma will always be your friend and work on your behalf. Why? Because you already did the hard work of facing your demons and transmuting the darkest parts of your personality into something more useful to the world.

During my process of spiritual awakening, I spent a long time alone. For over a year, I had hardly anyone in my life. Although I could talk to friends and family over the internet, I had absolutely no one to spend time with in person. For months, I experienced a deep depression as a result of sheer loneliness. I would listen to audiobooks and podcasts because I wanted to feel like I had someone to talk to, even if the conversation was one-sided. Although I worked a job at the time, my position carried almost no human interaction. During that time, I started this blog and podcast because I wanted to converse with people who were going through the same journey that I was. Whenever I would podcast with someone, it was the happiest moment of my day because I got to connect with another human being at an authentic level. After doing interviews for months, I began to realize that my process of spiritual awakening was shared by so many people around the world. The more I interviewed people like myself, the less alone I felt. Like a lightning bolt striking the earth, I awoke to the epiphany that we are all one cosmic being experiencing life together. We are all one and none of us are alone, even when we feel at the depths of our darkness.

Becoming spiritually awake led me to realizing that I am not alone. Once this truth sunk in, I began to attract new people into my world. The day everything changed was when I interviewed Allison Thomas on the show. It was one of the first “in person” podcasts I had done and it resulted in me connecting with Allison and a friend of hers named Jessie. Although I did not know it at the time, this chance encounter would lead to me marrying Jessie and starting a non-profit with Allison just a few years later. Here’s the podcast episode where it all began to shift:

Once those two entered my world, everything changed. Suddenly, I began to attract more people who were on the same page and going through the same process of spiritual awakening. Over the course of a few short weeks, I found a new network of friends who were all on the same page. Without me doing anything other than following my intuition, I had stumbled into a massive community of people. Instead of being completely alone, I was overwhelmed with new and wonderful connections.

So what happened?

After going through a profound process of spiritual awakening, I healed my old wounds. Although it took me enduring months of loneliness and pain, I “snapped out of it” as soon as I forgave myself and learned the lessons I needed to learn. Once I realized I was not alone, and that other people were having the same experience, everything changed. When I accepted into my subconscious that my experience was common, I began to attract new people almost instantly. 

Since connecting with my soul tribe, things have been different. Although many of those folks are no longer in my “day to day” life, we keep in touch. The opportunities I created as a result of this spiritual awakening have manifested the life that I have today where I work as the president of a successful business development agency and live by a river with the love of my life. Daily I am reminded of the magic of the universe. None of this would have been possible if not for becoming spiritually awake.

Books About Spiritual Awakening

When I began my process of spiritual awakening, I began to connect with books that explained the process to me. Although I also had people in my life who helped me understand what was happening, the books brought comfort because many of them were so old! I began to realize that becoming spiritually awake is nothing new. In fact, this initiation has been happening since our world first came into being.

The ancient mystery schools would facilitate spiritual awakening through a process of initiation. In his book “The Most Holy Trinosophia of the Comte De. Saint Germain”, Manly P. Hall shares the process of initiation as a sort of allegorical poem. Attributed by Hall to the immortal Count of Saint Germain, this poem is said to detail the initiation that resulted in becoming spiritually awake. At the end of the poem, he describes the results of spiritual awakening:

“I crossed the place, and mounting on a marble platform, which was before me, I noticed with astonishment that I had re-entered the hall of Throne (the first in which I had found myself when entering the Palace of Wisdom). The triangular alter was still in the center of this hall but the bird, the altar and the torch were joined and formed a single body. Near them was a golden sun. The sword which I had brought from the hall of fire lay a few paces distant on the cushion of one of the thrones.

“I took up the sword and struck the sun, reducing it to dust. I then touched it and each molecule became a golden sun like the one I had broken. At that instant a loud and melodious voice exclaimed, ‘the work is perfect!’ Hearing this, the children of light hastened to join me, the doors of immortality were opened to me, and the cloud which covers the eyes of mortals, was dissipated. I SAW and the spirits which preside over the elements knew me for their master.”

When we complete the initiation into spiritual awakening, we embrace our potential and we overcome the problems of the material world. We become the master of the elements and experience the kingdom of heaven on earth. Does this mean a goodbye to difficulty and hardship? Quite the contrary. Although life becomes more joyful and we gain a full awareness of the magic of the universe, more responsibility is thrust on our shoulders. Those who have undergone the process of becoming spiritually awake are given the task of spreading this awareness to the world. We become the ministers of a new reality and the beacons of an eternal flame. Your relationship with the world changes forever and there is no going back. Once fully awake, you can never fall back asleep, nor would you ever want to.

In his book from the 1800s “Transcendental Magick”, Eliphas Levi writes the following directly to us in our modern day:

“But you, before all things, who are you, thus taking this work into your hands and proposing to read it?

“On the pediment of a temple consecrated by antiquity to the God of Light was an inscription of two words: ‘KNOW THYSELF!’

“I impress the same counsel on every man when he seeks to approach science. Magic, which the men of old denominated the SANCTUM REGNUM, the Holy Kingdom, or the Kingdom of God, REGNUM DEI, exists only for kings and for priests.

“Are you priests? Are you kings? The priesthood of Magic is not a vulgar priesthood, and its royalty enters not into competition with the princes of this world. The monarchs of science are the priests of truth, and their sovereignty is hidden from the multitude, like their prayers and their sacrifices. The kings of science are men who know the truth and them the truth has made free, according to the specific promise given by the most mighty of all initiators.”

If you want to learn more about the process of spiritual awakening and the history of initiation, Manly P. Hall and Eliphas Levi are two whose work you should read. Although both have passed into the deathless realm of the immortals, their spirits continue to guide all seekers who undergo the process of spiritual awakening and look for questions. In my life, their words have been guideposts which helped me know that my experiences were not unique. If you are feeling alone in your journey of becoming spiritually awake, consult these older writers and find that you are not so alone after all.

Want to read more old books about spiritual awakening? Check out also the Kybalion, the Hermetic Corpus, and the Chaldean Oracles.

By educating yourself about the process of awakening, you will gain more confidence in what is happening inside of your life. Do not be afraid to seek and to find.

How To Start A Spiritual Journey

Looking to begin the process of spiritual awakening? If you have found this website, it means you have already begun. Do not be afraid of your previous karmic baggage. Instead, face the demons within yourself and integrate the lessons taught by the dweller on the threshold. By communing with the shadow-self within you, the keys to unlocking the secrets of your life will be revealed. Instead of running from the past and ignoring your problems, stand and face yourself.

Take responsibility for your life and your spiritual awakening will be easy. When you forgive yourself for your mistakes and you work to fix those problems, you gain control over your life. By submitting yourself to the initiation, you pass. When you resist and run from your darkness, it will only get worse. “KNOW THYSELF” is powerful advice.

Becoming spiritually awake does not have to be difficult if you learn the lessons you are meant to learn. Do not run from your healing. Lean into the lessons you know you are meant to learn. If you are in a toxic relationship that falls away, do not be upset for long because this is just part of the process. Everyone I know who underwent a spiritual awakening lost friends, relationships, jobs, homes, and more. Once the karmic baggage is cleared, you open the gateway for your good karma to come back to you too.
