I have been wanting to write this Empath guide for such a very long time. I wanted to be brutally honest and thorough. I did not want to leave anything out. I had no idea when I started this intention how much this was going to impact my life personally. As I have been trying to gather the words I was flooded every time with emotions, stories, images, feelings, thoughts and experiences from my past that kept me frozen in my feelings about what it means to be a highly sensitive person. I feel like it has been one of the most defining aspects of my life up until now. The main feelings that come to the surface when I connect to the “frozen” feeling that I was describing, would be powerlessness and self doubt. These were the most dominant feelings from my past, relative to the concept of being…
Welcome to the first issue of Ascend Academy. Brace yourselves, we are about to delve into the mother load of all spiritual concepts. This article reveals the meaning behind the 7 Hermetic Principles of truth, directly from their source, The Kybalion. If you have not read the introduction, please do so HERE. I am about to present some very powerful information to you that may stir up a lot of discussion, and possibly opposition. These seven principles are considered to be ABSOLUTE TRUTHS, and many ancient and current hermeticists, mystics, philosophers and so called enlightened beings regard its application to be THE Master key path to understanding the self and it’s relation to all that is.
Welcome to the second issue (and Part 1) of Ascend Academy. If you haven’t read the introduction or preface articles, please do so! Today we will begin our ascent up the spiraling staircase that is the 7 Phases of Mastery. This spiritual framework is designed to unlock the potential within every human being by applying an understanding of self that is not limited by any particular belief structure and by providing hands on techniques and practices that raise your awareness of internal as well as external energies. Unlike our last article, each new issue will be focusing on a new phase so that we can glean a complete understanding of each set of concepts presented. This is the phase of Geometry, in which we learn of how Consciousness moves and interacts with itself through it’s various manifestations and conceptual archetypes. Find yourself a pen and paper, as you will…
Welcome back spiritual seekers, this is the third article and Ascend Academy’s Phase 2, Creative Energy. This is a very large topic, and as a result, this will be quite a lengthy and informative article. Take a deep breath and get ready for some mind blowing revelations. Feel free to take a break about halfway through and come back to it, as there are a lot of concepts to cover. If you’ve missed the prior articles please refer to the Introduction where you can click on the articles in order. In the reality beyond time, space, beliefs, and all manifestations, only two notions exist. That of internal nature or Consciousness, and that of external form being expressed as limitless Void, which is an infinite fractal MIRROR of Consciousness. These two energies are expressions of Source, known to us as the original concepts of Male and Female energy respectively.
Namaste future ascendants! Were going to be kicking off the 4th article and Phase 3 today, giving an overview of the 3 Great Planes of existence. If you have not read the previous installments please click HERE. This will be a ‘brief’ breakdown of all of the known frequencies of our universe. There isn’t an actual distinction separating these 3 Planes, they all flow together in a cosmic spectrum of vibration, blending in so as to allow for a complete expression of the musical scale (the highest notes being Spirit, the lowest being matter). The octaves, or separations we place within this spectrum are somewhat arbitrary, but useful for us to create a way to study the spectrum and it’s various expressions easily. Depending on your perspective, you can view these octaves as 7 planes, 11 dimensions, 10 sephirot, and so on.
Welcome to the 6th installment. Please go HERE if you have missed the previous. The Universal Consciousness has manifested itself in a plethora of ways, all of which represent some aspect of it’s infinite and perfect nature. One of the most archetypal yet physically pervading representations of Source’s vast unfolding personality is the Sacred Geometry known as Metatron’s Cube.
If you’re like me, you have come to an uncomfortable realization, on more than one occasion: life is stressful. It is stressful. And it is hectic. Sure, you have times throughout your life where everything feels like it is going well. You have energy, you have tons of creativity, you have periods of high productivity. But you also have cycles of irritability, of moodiness. Low energy. Depression.
Dying inevitably follows living. What makes for a good death in a just and sustainable world? I think about this a lot these days. Four years ago, at age fifty, I was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. Active and fit, it took a collapsed lung and two broken ribs before I realized I had a big problem, the ultimate challenge of life: facing my own death.
