Though much has been written about the astral light in other works, we have in mind in this manual a particular object, and that is to relate the subject to recent changes in world-thought which have taken place, especially as regards the scientific outlook. In a world in which the old-fashioned scientific universe is regarded as a plenum, and in which nature and her laws are held to be fully explained by scientific formulas, such a conception as the astral light may appear to belong to that mysterious category known as the "supernatural." Here, however, the supernatural will be entirely rejected, and we propose to show that the astral light is a part of nature, and an essential part of nature. It is realized today by scientists themselves that their former conceptions are by no means adequate to an explanation of the natural phenomena which have now come under their ken; and they are actually feeling their way towards ideas conformable to the theosophical teachings.
The restricted spheres of both religion and science have left unexplored a very large realm of nature and of human experience, thus leaving us without guidance in a realm which it is of the utmost importance for us to understand. This lack is partially and very inadequately filled by various schools of psychology, psychoanalysis, and the like, which are groping largely in the dark. Again there is the whole vast subject of the "night side of nature"-- apparitions, wraiths, presentiments, haunted houses, and the like, the reality of which is so well attested that few remain today who feel able to get away with a simple denial of the facts. Such things are natural, a part of nature, and demand to be explained and understood.
It is often convenient to consider the universe under threefold aspects, just as we may consider man as spirit-soul-body. In this view the astral light would be the intermediate sphere between the spiritual and the physical, and thus it would be the soul of the world -- as indeed it has often been called. Thus the astral light, in this view, would form a connecting link between the higher and lower worlds; it would stand to the higher world in the relation of a body, and to the lower world in the relation of a spirit. But it must be pointed out that such a threefold division of the universe is not a complete analysis, and is only adopted for the convenience of a concise view; for theosophy divides the universe into many planes. In this latter view the astral light is the plane immediately above the physical plane, and is the lowest of a number of cosmic planes, reaching from the physical plane to the highest spiritual plane, in a gradation of steps of greater and greater refinement. To these other planes various names are given, such as akasa and aether; but it is not necessary at present to go into details as to these distinctions. more? see Astrail LightAnother example: The first root race was the Protoplasmatic race. These beings were fully awake, divine individuals, with bodies that were semi-physical, semi- etheric. Linga sarira is a Sanskrit term for the invisible double of the human body, the etheric body or etheric double (or astral body in some Theosophical concepts). It is one of the seven principles of the human being, according to Theosophical philosophy. More about this on our page called "Light".
Gnostic anthropology is primarily concerned with the major races of humanity that inhabit the
Earth at different times. Every planet must support seven major races of humanity, called
"root races", during the planet's existence. After these seven races have emerged, subsisted,
and dissipated from its surface, the planet becomes a lifeless moon.

If you watched Sylvia Brown on the Montel Williams show or you have read any of her books, you get the drift. Both Sylvia and John talk to passed on loved ones. The 'Light' you see above is as bright as the sun, but it does not equal the brightness of the 'ALL'.
A shadowy presence or spirit is like the image at the cemetary. An Angel is like the little orbs in the photographs. 'An apparition' is usually a full figure of the person said 'to haunt' this or that house or building. Sprits can made noise; turn lights on and off, slam doors, ect. They can be very frightening and difficult to get rid of.The ancients spent their life time trying to get to 'the other side' while living. This is called astrayl travel. It simply means you have an 'out of body experience' and you can go anywhere you like, even to Heaven. If you are interested in finding out what's really on 'The Other Side', get this book by Sylvia Brown.
This is reafirmed by this verse..."The Spirit of Yahweh God is upon me, because Yahweh has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound... (Isaiah 61:1-2)As you see above, the spark of 'light' in the cemetary is trapped. Take a tour of the link below ( Ghost Hunters ) and see many trapped souls. A tragic sudden death leaves them wondering, walking the same path over and over. We can release them.... Sylvia teaches us to tell them to "go to the Light." She also teaches that ghosts cannot harm us but they think they're alive and you (if you live in a haunted house) are invading their space.

Is a false 'God' getting the credit for the entire creation of heaven and earth and of man? Well he did actually, but this god has caused 'blindness' among his controlled creatures because he is blind. They do not know from whence they came or to the place they should return. Millions have been told they will go into the earth as dead flesh and remain there. They believe this is final, the end, but they believe the flesh will be restored and they will arise again in it. We discussed this on Forbidden Forward. 'Out of the imagination of a catholic bishop, it just isn't true!'
The Egyptians had a similar belief in that the body was needed to be reinhabited by the Ka. However they believed that death of the body was final so it had to be perserved forever.. The new christians of the 3rd century believed this because the false religion created by Paul and the Roman influence made us believe that Jesus rose to heaven in the flesh. They believe this will happen also to them when the Christ returns. They do not have a full understanding that there is a seperation of the soul from the body. As some of us have discovered, the body is useless in the return to the garden. With this, and other lies, Yaldabaoth traps them. Christ will release the trapped ones, but if we know the 'WAY' we are not forced to wait.
Enoch was taken up “from amongst those who dwell on the earth ... he was
raised aloft on the chariots of the spirit” (Enoch 7O:2).~ This image seems to
be a Judaic equivalent of the Egyptian winged Ba. But there is no doubt that
this event concerned an initiation, since the text explains what happened
to Enoch after he had been raised to heaven but before his spirit became
And the angel Michael seized me by my right hand, and lifted me up and led me forth into all the secrets, and he showed me all the secrets of righteousness. And he showed me all the secrets of the ends of the heaven. (Enoch 71:3--4)
The anonymous ancient writer continues, describing what then occurred: “And I fell on my face,” he recounts, “and my whole body became relaxed, and my spirit was transfigured.” (71:11)
“And it came to pass,” the text explains, “that my spirit was translated and it ascended into the heavens: and I saw the holy sons of God” (Enoch 7I:1). ~ This report has all the appearance of being an account of something that truly occurred to the writer-- a mystical experience that could be induced by someone seeking initiation into the esoteric tradition of Judaism.

The ancients taught that in the ascent to the heavens there are seven planetary stations to travel through. Each guarded by an archon (evil spirit ). Mercury is considered the hell as it is the closest to the sun.. The others include; the Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Since the planets were controled by the archons (gods), each one had an influence on life on the earth.
The demiurge or the false god has control of each region, but the Gnostics possessed the secret names of the archons and potent formulae to force the passage. The Egyptian Book of the dead contains the names as well as the book of Solomon and Enoch's secret books. Knowledge of the Christ, made possible by the mind, awakens our wisdom and gives us a path to follow that is free and clear of archons. Knowing exactly where we are going forces an entry. Faith ( Pistis ) takes us there. We have knowledge of the Father, made possible by the Christ. The archons do not have this knowledge and therefore cannot block our path.
To disciples of the ancient mystery religions, each planet is
governed by a planetary spirit. The concept of a personal God
who is the Creator and Ruler of all is held in contempt and a
hierarchy of planetary gods thought to rule the solar system.
H.P. Blavatsky wrote of these spirits in her Theosophical
"As our earth has its hierarchy of terrestrial planetary spirits, so has every other heavenly body. The highest planetary spirit ruling over any globe is in reality the ‘Personal God’ of that planet and far more truly its ‘over-ruling providence' than the self-congratulatory Infinite Personal Deity of modern Churchianity."

Scorpio is, of course, the sign of Death, and hence, of Satan. In rabbinical astrology, Scorpio is the sign of Dan, the serpent by the 'pathway'. But the serpent is the ancient sign for 'wisdom'.
But there was an even earlier tradition of the heavens among the Hebrews. Josephus says Seth, the son of Adam, named the stars and his sons formed a priesthood that kept charts of the heavens. If we look at the structure of the sky, we see six sets of male and female signs. Each pair of signs relates to an ancient form of human work: Aries and Taurus are both Herding signs, for example. Aquarius and Pisces are Fishing signs. Scorpio and Libra were once one giant Scorpion related to Farming, Cain's occupation. In the earliest form of the zodiac, then, it seems Scorpio and Libra represented Cain and his wife Luluwa or Lilith. This more or less confirms the 'bright' ones are in control of the pathway to the heavens.
The Egyptians believed there were three parts to the KA. They did not consider man as a simple individuality: he consisted of the body, the soul and the ghost, the image , the double or the genius, accordingly as the word is translated. We have seen this image or copy explained above from the Nag. The 'beings' Sabaoth created are these images. The latter, the soul, is evidently the most important; it is an independent spiritual being living within the man or woman, and through its presents bestowing upon the man "protection, intelligence, purity, health, and joy."
The Huna teachings are from Hawaii. These teachings are very similar to the Egyptian teachings of initiation into the Order of Melchizedek during the Third Dynasty. The essence of Huna teachings is that the human being is made up of three selves, or minds. They can most easily be called the subconscious mind, the conscious mind, and the superconscious mind.
The kahunas call the conscious mind the "uhane", or middle self. this middle self is the part of the human that is conscious of its own existence and has the ability to reason. It has also been given free will to create as it pleases, along with the low self. The high self has a shadow body also, but it does not interpenetrate the physical body. The high self is connected to the low self by an energy cord. This energy cord has been called the silver or gold cord in other mystical teachings.
Huna teaches that the high self expresses all the divine qualities- compassion, patience, love, forgiveness. It is the ideal to which the middle self is to aspire. It is a step advanced in the mental powers and creative abilities. The high self is also considered to be a combined community of spirits. High selves are considered to be individual in identity and yet one with all other high selves at the same time. The high self is also considered to be a perfect blending of masculine and feminie, an androgynous self.
Another extremely important aspect of Huna teaching is the importance of mana, or vital force. Mana is the basic energy in all things. Huna teaches that mana is taken from food and air by the low self and stored in the low self's shadow body. This vital force in the lower self's shadow body can be used for anything the middle self wants. When used by the middle self the mana is raised from the shadow body of the lower self to the physical head region of the middle self and in the process of being raised is changed in some subtle way. This force, when raised, is called the will by modern psychology. When the middle self does not use this will power as it should, the lower self acts out and flits from one activity to another without carrying out any suggestion or command effectively.
'Manna' was given to the people by Moses. It was contained in the Ark. Is this the same as the manna above?
The low self is thought to be like a child. It needs to be loved, and it needs to be treated firmly and in a disciplined manner. A real physical child, if spoiled and not given any discipline will act out. It is the same with the lower self. That is why it is essential that the middle self raise the mana for use as will power. The middle self is the reasoning mind which is like the parent of the low self, just as the high self is the parent of the middle self. The three selves are gradations of conciousness.
The Kahunas believe that God is a triune being, just as people are triune beings. They believe that God is the trinity of levels of spirit. They term these three levels Ku, Kane, and Kanaloa. This concept of God correlates with that of other religions such as Christianity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), and Hinduism (Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva). The kahunas believe that the process of evolution is one of moving through these levels of consciousness back to eventually at-one-ment with God the Creator, or Ku. Huna teachings
Scientific; 'Aura'An envelope of vital energy, which apparently radiates from everything in nature: minerals, plants, animals, and humans. The aura is not visible to normal vision, but may be seen by clairvoyance as a halo of light. Then it often appears as a multi-colored mist that fades off into space with no definite boundary, leaving sparks, rays, and streamers.
The body does have a magnetic field - a biofield, as it is called - but it is far too weak to account for the light-emitting aura. It's been theorized that the aura might actually be a form of light vibrating at frequencies beyond the normal range of vision, caused by some yet-to-be-discovered light-emitting diodes embedded in living organisms. Shortly before WWI, Dr. Walter J. Kilner, who was in charge of electrotherapy at St. Thomas' Hospital in London, discovered that an apparent human aura could be made visible if viewed through an apparatus containing a coal-tar dye called dicyanin, which made ultraviolet light visible. Kilner also noticed that weak, depleted auras suck off the auric energy of healthy, vigorous auras around them.
The aura can be divided into three parts: 1) the etheric
double, a transparent dark space, narrow and often obliterated
by the second bad; 2) the inner aura, fairly constant in size
and the densest portion; and 3) the outer aura, inconstant in
size, which often appears blended into the inner aura.
Clairvoyants see the aura as a psychic screen for the
projection of information concerning the past, present,
from definations associated with 'the Mysteries'
The book, Isis Unviled offers this explaination;
The philosophers, and especially those who were initiated into the Mysteries, held that the astral soul is the impalpable duplicate of the gross external form which we call body. The astral 'perisprit is contained and confined within the physical body as ether is in a bottle, or magnetism in magnetized iron. Its inherent activity causes the incessant physical operations of the animal organism and ultimately results in the destruction of the latter by overuse and its own escape. It is the prisoner, not the voluntary tenant, of the body. It has an attraction so powerful to the external universal force that after wearing out its casing it finally escapes from it. The stronger, grosser, more material its encasing body, the longer the term of its imprisonment.
Some persons are born with organizations so exceptional that the door which shuts other people in from communication with the world of the astral light can be easily unbarred and opened, and their souls can look into or even pass into that world and return. Those who can do this consciously, and at will, are termed magicians, hierophants, seers, adepts; those who are made to do it, either through the fluid of the mesmerizer or of 'spirits', are "mediums".Isis Unveiled
This is how prophecies were delivered, in two ways; consciously by magicians who were able to look into the astral light, and unconscoiusly, by those who act under what is called 'inspiration'. To the latter class belong the Biblical prophets and the modern trance speekers. So familiar with this fact was Plato, that of such prophets he says; "No man, when in his sences, attains prophetic truth and inspiration, but only when demented by some distemper or possession" ( by a damonion or spirit ). "Some persons call themselves prophets; they do not know that they are only repeaters and are not to be called prophets at all, but only transmitters of vision and prophecy," he adds. (Timaeus 72A, B). - Isis Unveiled
As most of us are aware, the astral plane is composed and made up of the thoughtforms of mankind and of the gods, hence, there is an Egyptian heaven that was formed by the thousands of people who have conceptualized it since the beginning of the 1800's, made stronger through the Rosecrucians and Blavatsky's, and into the modern metaphysical movement. But it is NOT the ancient Egyptian heaven. Hence, you can't simply just astrally project in order to get to a real Egyptian heaven.
You may even have to change your astral form to conform to a certain type in order to enter. For example, one of the ways to get to the Horus heaven is to have project to the Nile, and do certain things in order for a boat with a hawk on it to come over to the bank and pick you up to take you to the Horus Heaven.
One of the things you have to do, and not the only thing, in order to get into the Heaven of Isis is to change your astral body into the shape of a bird, a Swallow!
So if someone, no matter how much you respect them, tells you that they dreamed or astrally projected to astral Egypt, they are wrong, unless they know the specific ways to do it. The Egyptians then, have a sort of astral lock on the proverbial doors to the entrance of their heavens, and you can't just blindingly end up there without the right keys to get there. I can probably safely say that no more than a couple of dozen people in the last century have been able to enter these heavens, and no one who has written a book about Egyptian metaphysics has (including Eliz. Hatch who wrote Initiation; who knows nothing about Ptahhotep).
The teachers are still pretty much in the Egyptian heavens, waiting to teach the student who is able to get there.
Although the ancient Egyptians had the wherewithal to go into drug induced states (they had mandrake and poppies for medicine), I have yet to find one example of them using them for magic or astral projection. (This is because this was an initiaton and it was a secret ceremony)
Astral sight was taught before astral projection, using techniques that we still use today.
Several techniques that are used today in astral projection today were also used in astral projection then, but usually, a priest led the student in the first several experiences in order for the student to get used to the experience and feelings associated with projection to a particular heaven.
Therefore the guided trips were first used. Usually the first trips were done in the temples (easier to do with all of the power already resident in the temples). Some, like the priests of Horus were also done by the Nile's edge, the student going into a sleep, the priest astrally projecting and drawing the students astral body and consciousness out doing what is necessary for the Horus boat to arrive on the astral Nile, then going on the trip through the Horus heaven. Sometimes it was done out in the desert.
When a teacher died, such as Imhotep, he went to the appropriate heaven and taught from there (according to the ancient Egyptians, who said that at that point their teachers on earth would astrally project to the heaven to be taught by him). At that point, all priest/esses called him Master, or another appropriate remark. Since apparently there was much connections between the two worlds, the priest/esses knew when Imhotep finally left the astral heaven to ascend beyond and into the world of the god/desses. At that point Imhotep on earth was called a God (this process is found in a papyrus fragment translated courtesy of the French Institute of Archeology of Cairo).
Hence, if you know when Imhotep or some other lived, and know that after death he was called a master, then the earliest time that he, or she, started being called a God was the time he moved out of the astral plane.Some other traditions use the symbology of ladders as an analogy of the ascent to their astral plane. Each rung represents a god or goddess to invoke, the ladder is always held by two gods, which symbolize the type of path being used. In some other traditions, there was a way to ascend through the astral plane and into the spiritual realm, reserved for the higher priests who have passed the Guardian of the Threshold. These traditions can be found when you go to Egypt for in some of the temples the staircase to the roof will have a god/dess for each step, symbolizing those that you will need to ascend to the spiritual plans.
Certain goddesses and spiritual beings can assist or deter you from your astral trip.
THE HELPERS: Anubis is one of the best. Hathor is also great, for she gives you magical power during your astral projection. The god Seb supplies all a person needs to astrally travel in many places. The god Seb, Shu, the goddesses Nut and Tefnut defend people during their journeys.
There was also the Souls of the West, Souls of the East; Lady of the Evening, Calf of the Goddess (Morning Star), Souls of several different cities for their special heavens; The Catcher of Gods, the Divine Being who Examines Gods for Men, the God who Binds Gods. see Sacred Texts
There is of course, Apep, Apophis, and a few specific to each of the heavens, but are usually particular to the Osirian heaven (Reading the Book of the Dead will give you a great idea about them). A zoomorphic projection is when you astrally project then change your astral body into a zoomorphic figure in order to get to specific egyptian astral heavens. An example is turning your astral body into a swallow to get to Isis's heaven, or into a hawk to get to one of Horus's heavens. Following the Eastern Tradition of the astral plane, the Egyptians have an almost exact duplicate of the concept. Basically it says that there is a plane of existence between the realm of the high gods and earth, called the astral plane, which has layers like an onion.
The astral plane is made up of the mind stuff of heaven and earth dwellers alike and is as real as both. To the Eastern people, all the heavens of all the religions are there. To both Egyptian and Easterners, to get there you astrally project or out of body experience. Although the Egyptians had a more elaborate version. The Egyptians, therefore, which had several religious traditions, of which Isis plays in a couple) had several heavens. These were usually conceived of in layers or parts, corresponding to the layers of the astral plane. In Heliopolis there were 12 layers or planes to their heaven. Each tradition had a different heaven and a different way of getting there. The temples trained the people how to do it at home, at the temple, or elsewhere. Sometimes more than just the astral body took the trip, there was also a spiritual body, the soul, the spirit and other forms.
According to ancient Egyptian practices, you can project your astral body, soul, spirit, or spiritual body. However, there is no ritual to do all at once, probably because it would kill the person. Of course the sa is considered the spiritual power of a person and the animating force of the body. As long as you have the sa and one of the three (soul, spirit or spiritual body) you're body can still live during the projections.
The Egyptians are the only ones that I am aware of (other than a very few Native American tribes) that even project the spirit or the spiritual body or the soul. Altered state of consciousness was used in Egypt, usually by NOT using drugs, although they did have mandrake, poppies and hemp (used in medicine as an anaesthetic). What was taught differed by tradition, and what kind of altered state differed also. For example: A scribe of Anubis: Does he want to become a doctor/priest, a mummification priest, or a priest/guide to the astral plane? If the latter, then he is taught the basics of the Egyptian astral planes and how each one differs, and how each tradition of Egypt has a different path to their own. He is taught how to astrally project, and then his teacher will project and take him on a guided tour. Eventually he will astrally project to the Anubis temple in the astral plane and receive higher knowledge from their teachers. Eventually he will teach others to project, and lead them on journeys.
No one except probably about 15 people know how to astrally project to an ancient Egyptian astral plane. The form you take, the route you take, what you see determines if you will get there, and if you don't know these things, according to the Egyptians you will not reach the plane. Instead you will end up on an astral plane of Egypt created by people who lived from the 1700- 1800's on, such as Golden Dawn people, Rosecrucians, Wicca people. Is there an astral plane? It's up to you. I have my own opinion. My opinions are almost always based on experts in their own fields.
Human life was viewed as part of the great scheme of creation, and was regarded as cyclical, an experience which, like the endless re-emergence of the sun each dawn, could be expected to repeat itself throughout eternity. Spell 178 of the Book of the Dead describes death as 'the night of going forth to life', emphasising that it was viewed as a transitional state, leading to the afterlife. Egyptian texts show they preceived an individual life as a series of changes, beginning with birth and passing via adolescence and maturity to old age and death. Death, however was not the end but merely viewed as a further change, albeit a highly important one. Today's Masonic teachings use this same life structure to show us how we progress from birth to death and the most important 'beyond'.
Check out this Near Death Experience. It proves the point.
The 'Light' is also viewed as energy, or the essence of God of which everyone is a part. A Near Death Experience; "I was in this great light of love with the stream of life flowing through me. I have to say again, it is the most loving, non-judgmental light. It is the ideal parent for this wonder child. "What now?" I wondered.
The light explained to me that there is no death; we are immortal beings. We have already been alive forever! I realized that we are part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly. I was never told that I had to come back. I just knew that I would. It was only natural, from what I had seen. So to be the human part of God ... this is the most fantastic blessing. It is a blessing beyond our wildest estimation of what blessing can be. For each and every one of us to be the human part of this experience is awesome, and magnificent. Each and every one of us, no matter where we are, screwed up or not, is a blessing to the planet, right where we are.
I had a descent into what you might call hell, and it was very surprising. I did not see Satan or evil. My descent into hell was a descent into each person's customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing. It seemed like a miserable eternity. But each of the millions of souls around me had a little star of light always available. But no one seemed to pay attention to it. They were so consumed with their own grief, trauma and misery. But, after what seemed an eternity, I started calling out to that light, like a child calling to a parent for help. Then the light opened up and formed a tunnel that came right to me an insulated me from all that fear and pain. That is what hell really is.
I asked God, "What is the best religion on the planet? Which one is right?"
And Godhead said, with great love, "I don't care."
That was incredible grace. What that meant was that we are the caring beings here.
The Ultimate Godhead of all the stars tells us, "It does not matter what religion you are."
They come and they go, they change. Buddhism has not been here forever, Catholicism has not been here forever, and they are all about to become more enlightened. More light is coming into all systems now. There is going to be a reformation in spirituality that is going to be just as dramatic as the Protestant Reformation. There will be lots of people fighting about it, one religion against the next, believing that only they are right. read this NDE Reincarnation is real

If the multitude of deities and occult correspondences in the mystery religions seems hopelessly confusing. A mystery religion (is) not designed to hide the true identity of the one being worshipped but it has multiple names so that all religions can be represented.
"It may be perhaps suspected...that an esoteric doctrine.. .taught the real identity of the several gods and goddesses, who may have been understood by the better instructed to represent, not distinct and separate beings, but several phases of the divine nature. Ancient polytheism had, it may be surmised, to a great extent this origin, the various names and titles of the Supreme, which designated His different attributes or the different spheres of His operation, coming by degrees to be misunderstood, and to pass, first with the vulgar, and at last with all but the most enlightened, for the appellation of a number of gods."
In other words, polytheistic religions are essentially monotheistic, whose adherents worship a supernatural being variously called the "Divine Nature," "the Supreme," "the One," "Deity," "the Universal Soul," "the Universal Spirit," "the Name" and other appellations. It is noteworthy that modern bible versions frequently substitute the terms "Divine Nature," "divine being," "Deity," for "the Godhead" Trinity.
In the various orders of Freemasonry, a
Blazing Star is observed during advanced initiations, called it
an occult (secret) phenomenon. Charles Leadbeater, stated in The Hidden
Secrets of Masonry:
"...the Blazing Star...was called the 'star of the dawn' or Morning Star'; and represented Horus of the resurrection, who was pictured as bearing it upon his head and as having given it to his followers."
Documented sources such as Albert Pike, the Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry in the late 1800's, which have identified the various gods represented by the Blazing Star: "Pike explains that the Blazing Star in our Lodges ...represents ...Sirius. Our Pyramid of Gaza page explains that Sirius is the Star of Jesus and it rose again in 2000.. Pike also calls this Dog Star Horus and Sothis.
In his "Instructions to the twenty-three Supreme Councils
of the World" Pike disclosed the ultimate object of Masonic
teaching: QUOTE; "Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who
bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds
feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!"
This got him and all of Masonry in alot of trouble. It is the sole reason Masonry is still suspected of devil worship today. Pike never says Masons worshiped this God, he was just trying to tell us an evil god had control of the material world. The true God then isn't Yehweh but the Serpent God of wisdom, whom everyone who isn't familiar with the sacred texts calls Satan. So Mason's get accused of devil worship. The Nag Hammadi writings and the writings of Noah bring to light the real False God but this wasn't discovered until 1947.
""Light," in the sense that is used by Pike, means education. Education is one of those things that most of us think is universally approved, but the anti-Masons take Masonry to task for such emphasis on it, taking the stand that too much secular education can be damaging to a good Christian. They often fall back on the belief of their predecessor fundamentalists of generations ago, who believed that education requires no written work other than Holy Scripture."
Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma is not a manifesto (i.e. public declaration of principles, policies, or intentions) for Masonry or even for the Scottish Rite's Southern Masonic Jurisdiction. It is, rather, an attempt by Pike to provide a framework for understanding religions and philosophies of the past. Pike believed that without understanding the history of a concept, one couldn't grasp the concept itself - and thus his lengthy explanations of various religious beliefs (consistent with knowledge of those beliefs in the mid-1800s).
"Lucifer makes his appearance in the fourteenth chapter of the Old Testament book of Isaiah, at the twelfth verse, and nowhere else: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"
"The first problem is that Lucifer is a Latin name. So how did it find its way into a Hebrew manuscript, written before there was a Roman language? To find the answer, I consulted a scholar at the library of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. What Hebrew name, I asked, was Satan given in this chapter of Isaiah, which describes the angel who fell to become the ruler of hell? The answer was a surprise. In the original Hebrew text, the fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is not about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king, who during his lifetime had persecuted the children of Israel. It contains no mention of Satan, either by name or reference. The Hebrew scholar could only speculate that some early Christian scribes, writing in the Latin tongue used by the Church, had decided for themselves that they wanted the story to be about a fallen angel, a creature not even mentioned in the original Hebrew text, and to whom they gave the name "Lucifer.""
"Why Lucifer? In Roman astronomy, Lucifer was the name given to the morning star (the star we now know by another Roman name, Venus). The morning star appears in the heavens just before dawn, heralding the rising sun. The name derives from the Latin term lucem ferre, "bringer, or bearer, of light." In the Hebrew text the expression used to describe the Babylonian king before his death is Helal, son of Shahar, which can best be translated as "Day star, son of the Dawn." The name evokes the golden glitter of a proud king's dress and court (much as his personal splendor earned for King Louis XIV of France the appellation, "The Sun King")."
"The scholars authorized by the militantly Catholic King James I to translate the Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts, but used versions translated from the Catholic Vulgate Bible produced largely by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Jerome had mistranslated the Hebraic metaphor, "Day star, son of the Dawn," as "Lucifer," and over the centuries a metamorphosis took place. Lucifer the morning star became a disobedient angel, cast out of heaven to rule eternally in hell. Theologians, writers, and poets interwove the myth with the doctrine of the Fall, and in Christian tradition Lucifer is now the same as Satan, the Devil, and - ironically- the Prince of Darkness."
"So "Lucifer" is nothing more than an ancient Latin name
for the morning star, the bringer of light. That can be
confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the
morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian
sermons. Jesus refers to himself as the morning star in
Revelation 22:16: "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto
you these things in the churches. I am the root and the
offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.""

There are 134 instances in the Masoretic text where the Jewish Sopherim (scribes) claimed that they altered the earlier Hebrew text by substituing Adonay for the tetragrammaton. Isaiah 9:8 is one of those places.... Nevertheless, the Great Isaiah Scroll (of the Dead Sea Scrolls, dated long before the texts the Jewish Sopherim used) has Adonay, not Yahweh, in Isaiah 9:8. This indicates that the listing of the Jewish Sopherim may not be totally accurate. see Adonay, the Tetragrammaton and the Great Isaiah Scroll We do discuss Yahweh as being one of the false gods so we more or less have faith Adonay, being connected with the Dead Sea Scrolls, is not a False God.
The parable here is anticipating that he ( Christ ) is in the heavens at the
Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at daybreak -- which happened in 2000..
Due to the Precession of the Equinox, the Jupiter/Saturn triple conjunction took place in the sign of Aquarius in May of A.D. 2000. This could mean that in 2012, Christ will manufest and begin his teaching again just as he did at age 12 in the bible text. This means not a redestruction of the earth but a destruction of the false teachings we have been forced to listen to for almost 2000 years. Unfortunately the false teachers and all that are associated with them will have to die.
Jesus Christ or Horus of the Horizon? In Matthew 24:30, the
Lord Jesus Christ foretold that a heavenly sign would precede
the Second Coming and certain events which would attend His
"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
"Christ is a Greek word for king. A king was one who was literally born under the cosmic signature of the King’s Star. Jesus, as we know, was born in the lineage of the House of David. But to be born in the lineage of David didn’t only mean that you had parents in that lineage. It also meant that you were born under the Star of David, which occurred when Jupiter, the King ’s Star, aligned with Saturn...there was, in fact, a triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, in the sign of Pisces, in the year 6 BC."
There is no mourning on earth nor gathering of the elect
in Zalshar’s fable. Rather, Zalshar prays to the "Father of
Lights" for a global awakening --
"Let a temple to Christ be built so a new memorial might stand. Send forth your holy angels from the East to the West, to gather praises and tributes to present to Christ our best. As this happens in heaven, on earth may awakening come."
In The Reappearance of the Christ & The Masters of Wisdom, Benjamin Creme confirms that, besides Freemasonry, other esoteric institutions will be in place to perform the mystery rites: "Through the Masonic initiation and certain esoteric groups will come the process of initiation. In this coming age millions of people will take the first and second initiation through these transformed and purified institutions.
"For the last couple of thousand years, the North Pole of the Earth has been pointing to that area in the sky we call Pisces. This means that, astrologically, we have been in the Age of Pisces, or the Age of the Fish! Note the connections between the fish and Christianity. Christ was a fisher among men. The vesica Pisces, the vessel of the soul, became a symbol for the church. Fish represents the apparent multiplicity, and in the Age of the Fish, it was reserved for the religious mystic to see how all the individual fishes are, in truth, one.
"In these times, we have talk now of another new age, The Age of Aquarius. Because the equinox slips backwards, it goes from Pisces to Aquarius, rather than Aries. It is the resonance between the changing of the ages two thousand years ago, and the changing of the ages in modern times that captures our attention as this story unfolds...
"The story of the Star of Bethlehem tells us that cosmic alignments herald earthly events. The Lord’s Prayer tells us that "it is done on earth as it is in heaven." The words are clear even if we, in our scientific mindset, shirk from the true meaning. Ancient prophecy was very astrological.
"What will the stars of the late 21st Century mean to the big historical picture? What will these times bring?
Horn survived but remains partially paralyzed following a stroke he suffered immediately following the attack. His speech was distorted by a slight lisp. "It's just my body.

Many have asked, how can we prove there's life after death? This is the
see Near Death Experience Research Foundation
Another source we found to be quite enlightening is Sylvia Brown.
I believe in the physic power of Sylvia Brown
I believe in past life regression. I have recently purchased three of her books -
Life on the Other Side Past Lives - Future Healing and The other side and Back. You will see the connections to "the Other Side" we all have if you take this seriously. And besided that, you can actually heal yourself of any sudden debilitating illness by understanding where it came from...a past life!
Your brother or sister in this life may have been your husband or wife in a past life! Your grandmother, if she's passed away, may be reincarnated as your grandchild. You have a soul mate but he or she is not here in this life. He or she is waiting for you on The Other Side! You sex and the color of your skin could have been the opposite of what it is now. It's true..check it out for your self.

If you've ever seen the John Edward show or read any other books on what is called 'New Age Religion', you can find answers to the age old question - is there life after death? The overwheming answer is YES!
All you have to do is open the door to the possibility.

"I became aware that the Christ was watching some souls in their study of the universe's religions and saw He did not judge any of them. They too were not judging the religions which they were studying but were interested in the many different ways the beings of the universe had attempted to come to understand their Creator. I suddenly realized how wrong it was for any of us on earth to judge another's approach to God or to feel we have the only answers. The moment that realization came into my mind it was followed by His thought placed in my mind:
"You are right, for if I, LOVE, be lifted up, I shall draw all humanity unto Me. If you come to know the Father, you will come to know Me. If you come to know Me you will come to know that LOVE includes all beings regardless of their race, creeds or color." from.. 'He saw Heaven and Hell'

We are fairly sure this is how Enoch did it.
Quote from 'The Great Pyramid Texts, By Clesson H. Harvey:
The Saqqara Pyramid Texts are filled with advanced knowledge about the Tunnel of Near Death Experiences, which only just began to be rediscovered scientifically in the 20th century from the black-out experiences of healthy young Air Force pilots subjected to high g-forces in a giant centrifuge . This NDE knowledge also resurfaces in the 44th 'Spell' of the "Book of the Dead" but it is still mostly lost to the world, because of some of the biggest blunders in Egyptology. These last involve the two words re and tjepehet along with the expression ikhem sek.
Egyptologists know perfectly well that tjepehet for "cavern" is really a snake hole or "tunnel." It is the Tunnel of Near Death Experiences in 'Spell' 44 and the serpent is the paranormal Levitation Power in that Tunnel, which can temporarily "transform a man into a god." from.. The Great Pyramid Texts

Key in the words 'near death experience' into any search engine and see what comes up... or read the commentary on this page and then see if that agrees with the Universal Love you have come to know, who is God.

The Emerald tablets of Thoth and the Secret Books of Enoch are all that remains of the secret teachings. ( that we can understand and decode at present ) The knowledge is also in the 'secret vault' of the Great Pyramid only to be found by 'the worthy'. It is said a 'copy' also remained somewhere in the destroyed Island of Atlantis. Since the Egyptians were 'the caretakers' of the knowledge, God had to have trusted them also with "the word". We know there was a word, the secret name of God, ( or the secret path ) from the writings as seen above in the Nag Hammidi. The Egyptians believed in eternal life and God had showed them the "way" to achieve it through the words of Thoth, the Book of the Dead, the Pyramid Texts and ancient codeing still present on the walls of the Pyramid of Unas. More ritual has been discovered on the walls of the tomb of Osiris.
Today, Masonic teaching focuses on the preservation of the word,
but they know it is a substituted word as described
in the story of the killing of Sequenenre Tao.
As we have discovered, the 'word' is only revealed to the 'Worthy'. Isis
had this word which she extracted from Ra just before he died.
The 'word' was in the care of the Egyptians for more than 10,000 years.
Moses, Joshua, and Jesus were the last humans to know it. We believe
Jesus and the incarnation of the Christ made it possible
for everyone seeking it to know the 'word'.
Perhaps this word or the meaning of it is actually the name of
the beloved first Son of Light.
We are a part of Him. Say to yourself, "I AM".
Keeping in mind that the Emerald Tables of Thoth may be 36,000 years old, take note of the words and this... "He was there from the beginning"...
From The Emerald Tablets of Thoth
"Now ye assemble my children, waiting to hear the Secret of Secrets which shall give ye power to unfold the God-man, give ye the way to Eternal life. Plainly shall I speak the Unveiled Mysteries. No dark saying shall I give unto thee. Open thine ears now my children. Hear and obey the words that I give".
"But, know ye, the Masters were mighty in magic, able to lift the Veil from the face of the serpent, able to send him back to his place. Came they to man and taught him the secret, the 'Word' that only a man can pronounce. Swift then they lifted the Veil from the serpent and cast him forth from the place among men".
