The Pituitary’s Role in Building Community

 “To love another person is to see the face of God”

This past Labor Day weekend, Bonnie and I watched PBS’s presentation of Les Miserables in concert format and enjoyed every minute of this powerful musical. Jean Valjean’s (Alfie Boe) last words before dying still resonate in my heart: “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Wow! My eyes teared up as he sang this line, as they did throughout the story.  I was moved by the music and the songs, especially when Fontaine (Lea Salonga) poured her heart out in “I Dreamed a Dream,” and Alfie Boe, with his rich baritone voice, sang “Bring Him Home.” But then, I’m a softy and tear up easily when sweet and caring words are spoken and acts of extraordinary generosity are portrayed in movies. Some scenes simply touch a tender spot in my heart of longing for life in our world to be as beautiful and full of simple acts of kindness and appreciation as portrayed in movies such as this. 

I am blessed to have someone close to love and to share life with. It’s a privilege I do not take for granted—although it is granted. Bonnie and I both acknowledge that we are truly a gift from Life to one another, a gift for whom I am deeply thankful, especially as we age together in a high-tech world that seems to be leaving us behind, and dear friends and family members are departing.

We have been gifted by Life in the many friends we’ve come to know over the years. I marvel at times at how we are naturally, though magically, drawn together by Spirit, occasioned by common interests and sheer resonance at times, and remain connected in spirit, though miles and oceans apart. We are clearly part of a global spiritual community that abides and serves the One in the larger Body of Man at a level clearly above the physical, yet includes the physical.

We are drawn together by Love, just as surely as the cells of our bodies are drawn together by Love and arranged by perfect design to function together in a controlled and purposeful manner as a true community—thanks to our wonderful Pituitary gland and the Spirit of Truth focused here— and the Spirit of Love focused in the Pineal gland . . . and the Spirit of Life focused in and by the Thyroid gland (which I will write about shortly) . . . and all of the other glands of our endocrine system that provide their unique focus for Life in the body.  The word focus is the operative word here for the theme of this post, in which I am happy to share this except from my book SACRED ANATOMY. 

A Collective Body

   Whether we are aware of it or not, our function on Earth greatly impacts the balance of creation throughout the solar entity, just as the function of the Pituitary determines the balance of energy and chemistry in our bodies.  How we use this sacred seal is crucial to the outworking of creative cycles throughout the body, as well as our relationship with others in our worlds.  It is designed to honor and give focus for the Spirit of Truth.  We use this seal correctly when our passion is for the truth of love in our momentary living. 

   It is the prayer of many who have vision, and who offer themselves as spiritual mentors these days, that we all become conscious of our true identity as angelic beings and aware of our mission and heavenly purpose so that we might play our parts with genuine authority in our collective role of wise stewardship, exercising loving dominion over the balance of Creation on this planet.  A global awakening to this reality in the collective has occurred over the past few decades.  What is being called for today, I feel, is a certain meekness of mind, a willingness born of true humility to be teachable and to explore together what is required of us during these historic and crucial days of completion and new beginnings as we move into the new millennium.  When the mind is meek and teachable, still and open to explore new possibilities, the heart may feel free to open up and start trusting its perceptions and, more importantly, sharing its perspectives and understanding. It is with the heart’s discernment that we feel our way through the darkness in this world.  It is with her understanding and perspectives, based on spirit rather than structure, that we will forge a path to the “world waiting to be born” Scott Peck envisioned and wrote about. This is what true vision is.

    It has been said, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” It also follows that where there is vision the people flourish. It is important, then, that those with vision, those who know and know that they know, by virtue of their own living the truth of love, come forward to shed light into the darkness of human misunderstanding and confusion.  This is happening on a grander scale now than ever before.  Everywhere I turn I see individuals living and speaking their truth with authority and assurance, even if not with pristine clarity as yet. There is much more to come in the way of purity of heart and clarity of understanding. There’s no need to put this process on hold, however, until the heart is fully purified.  As each one puts his and her piece of truth into the collective container of consciousness, the picture continues to clarify for all.  It is the shining of one’s light that the capacity for shining is transformed and clarified, as well as grows.     

   To use a biblical metaphor, one does not light a candle and place it under a bushel but in a place where it can be seen by men and where it will light up the entire room.  We all have a part to play and everyone’s part, without exception, is essential to the whole picture and to the inevitable outcome of the cycles of change presently underway on Earth.  No one will remain untouched or unchanged by these re-creative cycles that are bringing us all together as One Body for the One Spirit we all love and seek to serve more fully. 

   In our love for the One and for one another, the true design of spiritual governance through a pattern of harmonic focalization would naturally begin to be unveiled and fleshed out on a basis that is acceptable to all who keep their I single in the Spirit whose design it is.  That Spirit is not an elusive, inaccessible entity, but rather is closer than breath.  It differentiates itself through each one of us, as it does in the natural world around us, in focalized patterns.  Life is an organizing force that brings order and harmony out of chaos and confusion. The Universe attests to its creative genius.

   We each focus a unique aspect and frequency of Spirit. We are drawn toward—and we draw to ourselves—those with whom we naturally resonate in Spirit at the core of our hearts. This is what I mean by harmonic focalization. To use a musical metaphor, some of us sing melodies in the life of a community and others of us sing harmonies around them. Those of us who usually sing harmonies sometimes find ourselves singing melodies with others, who perhaps usually sing melodies, gravitating toward us to harmonize—or coordinate—their parts with us. This is the organism rather than the organization model.  It’s the way things work in the Universe to achieve anything genuine and organic. 

   Nothing could be achieved in the physiology of the human body but anarchy and pandemonium without the focus of the Spirit of Love in the Pineal Body and the nurturing coordination of the Spirit of the Womb in the Pituitary gland. So is it with the collective body of humanity. Where Spirit is focalized and its differentiations coordinated in a pattern of design and control, the collective body temple comes together as a unified expression of divine love to provide a Home for God on Earth.  This, I believe, is the healing the Body of God on Earth is in dire need of today, a process that appears to be underway. 

   I see a collective Body Temple rising in our midst today composed of  incarnate beings of light the world around, men and women who have remembered who they are and why they are here, who give their utmost care and attention to the sacred in everyday life.  All are invited to play a role in this temple, be it large or small.  The Earth itself is being recognized once again for the Sacred Temple it provides for the continual praise and worship of the Creator in this Solar Entity, this Cathedral of the living God.

   Speaking of individuals emerging who carry a current of love for truth in their writings, my friend and poet Diana Durham’s book The Return of King Arthur, which is written around the theme of the quest for the Holy Grail, a myth full of symbolism that points to the reality of human experience, past, present and future, may well be the single most important book at the dawn of the New Millennium, certainly among the top ten. The author names, like no other author I have read to date, where we have been and how we have been wounded, where we are now and where we are headed—and naming the wound is the first step toward healing.  Her chapter eleven, “The Chalice of Collective Sovereignty,” is a must-read for every awakened human being on the planet at this time of global transformation and transition out of the old and into the New Era. I simply cannot resist sharing just a few of the many morsels of her wisdom here in this consideration of the collective body, and as a fitting closing to our meditation on the roles the Pituitary Gland and Spirit of the Womb play in our body temples. –(from SACRED ANATOMY)

Due to their length, I will publish the excerpts from her book in my next post, concluding this series on the Spiritual Significance of the Pituitary Gland.

To my followers and readers

I seek to speak truth to a compromised state of human consciousness in my writings. To the extent my words are received by you my readers, they convey my spirit into the collective consciousness and my purpose for writing and blogging is thereby accomplished. For that I am deeply thankful to God for you and for all who follow and read my blogs.  Feel free to share my posts with friends as deemed fitting. 

Blessings,

The Spiritual Significance of the Pituitary Gland

“If you continue in my word, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Jesus)

I love it when someone says or writes something that moves me to re-think my beliefs — my belief about “the Truth” for instance, and how it makes us free. The word “truth” has acquired a rather dogmatic connotation.  I have adopted a more philosophical meaning that’s free of parochial baggage:

Truth is simply design and control.

Truth is what makes things and events what they are — shapes them and gives them purposeful function and freedom of movement. For example, the truth of a hand is its shape and flexibility, its main purpose being to hold things. “Hands are the servants of the body,” someone once said. If it were to lose its characteristics, we could say the hand has lost its truth — along with its freedom of movement. 

In the case of events, the truth is what’s behind the facts that shapes them and gives them their meaning and purpose.  Someone recently said that in order to find the truth you have to know the facts. Facts may lead to the truth, but facts are not truth. Facts are the surface play of events behind which lies their truth. Altering the facts with “fake news” does not change the truth. As the saying goes, the truth will out — and free us from deception. 

All things have their truth, and when their truth is compromised, things break down and fail to function. If one uses one’s hand as a hammer, for example, it will get damaged and eventually break down. Thankfully, we have pain to stop such abuse. When one goes to the doctor with a broken hand, the doctor will put it in a cast to stabilize it so that it can heal. Healing occurs as the truth of the hand returns to it — from within — freeing it from its limitations.

The truth of a human being is not the collection of concepts and beliefs acquired by the mind. The truth of a human being is the Spirit that informs our flesh, gives it design, control and freedom of movement; that enlightens our minds so we can see clearly what is true and what is false, freeing us from the limitations of preconceived concepts and beliefs. That spirit has been called “The Spirit of Truth.”  

This brings me to this new series of considerations on the spiritual significance of the Pituitary gland with excerpts from my book SACRED ANATOMY.  

THE PITUITARY GLAND & THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH

   Underneath the brain is a saddle-shaped depression in the sphenoid bone called the Sella Tursica.  The sphenoid is a large bone appearing in shape like a bat in flight forming the floor of the skull and connecting all the bones of the cranium together.  Here the Pituitary gland (hypophysis) rests protected in her bony saddle, much as a queen upon her throne exercising loving but firm dominion over her queendom. In size and shape similar to that of a green pea, the Pituitary’s domain is the entire endocrine system and the overall production of hormones throughout the body.  It accomplishes all of this with the coordinating assistance of the Hypothalamus. For this reason it has earned the distinguished title of the “Master Gland” or “Mother Gland.”

    The Pituitary encompasses both masculine and feminine functions. Comprised of two lobes, anterior and posterior, this gland is suspended by a stalk attached to the Hypothalamus at the base of the brain, from which it receives decision-making commands regarding its own hormonal secretions.  These commands are the positive creative emanations of the Spirit of Love. They are based in part on information about the surrounding circumstances received through the eyes by way of light, as well as through the other physical, mental and emotional senses. They bring the patterns of design and control for the manifestation of life in and through the body temple.

   Pituitary gland seated in the  Sella Tursica

    The anterior lobe of the Pituitary (adenohypophysis) secretes most of the Pituitary hormones which stimulate growth, egg and sperm development, milk secretion, as well as determining the hormonal secretions of the thyroid, adrenal and gonadal glands and affects the growth of long bones, muscles and internal organs, all functions of the achieving masculine. 

   The posterior lobe of the Pituitary (neurohypophysis) stores and releases hormones from the hypothalamus that control Pituitary function, uterine contraction and milk release and blood pressure.  It is concerned more with the mammary glands, stimulating the production of milk through the hormone prolactin, for example, and the kidneys by regulating the secretion of urine and body fluid levels in general, all functions of the nurturing feminine. 

   There are many functions in the body temple which this tiny but pivotal gland services. One of its most important ones is the production of growth hormones that regulate the cellular absorption of nutrients to control their development. Growth hormones also work with insulin in controlling blood sugar.  Another function influenced by the Pituitary gland is the metabolism, the building up and tearing down of tissues and the burning of food for energy. This is likely its most important of services to the body, one which it carries out in partnership with the thyroid and adrenal glands by stimulating them to release thyroxine and glucocorticoid hormones. In fact, most of the production of pituitary hormones is for the purpose of stimulating other hormonal glands. Such hormones are called precursors because they are literally forerunners to the hormones that are produced by their facilitation.  

   An interesting function of the Pituitary, relating to its motherly role, is the production of oxytocin, a hormone secreted by the pituitary glands of both mother and baby triggered by the pressure on the top of the infant’s head exerted by the hyper-extended surrounding tissues of the womb.  This somehow gives a signal to the child to initiate the series of contractions in the uterus that push it out at the time of birth.  At the same time it starts up the production of milk, the first food it will need after the umbilical cord is cut. One doesn’t commonly think of the baby initiating its own birthing process.  Nevertheless, here is a living example of the child of Love obeying the wise direction of its Mother, the Spirit of Truth working through the Pituitary gland, while exercising its freedom, based simply in how things work in the natural order and design, to set its own cycles in motion and therein assume full responsibility for all that follows this first step that initiates life in the conscious world. 

THE SEAT OF WISDOM    

   In partnership with the Pineal gland, the Pituitary gland provides a focus in the body temple for the nurturing Spirit of the Womb, another name for the Spirit of Truth. These names aptly describe the function of this gland in the growth and maturation processes in the body, much as a mother wisely oversees the care and nurturing of her offspring. Here is the seat of wisdom where the impeccable design and absolute control bring the firm dominion of spiritual and corporeal governance into the affairs of the temple and beyond.

   The essences of the Spirit of the Womb may begin to be perceived as we meditate more deeply upon the furnishings of the temple, represented in their metaphorical details in the story of the Ark of the Covenant.  In front of the ark an altar was placed and on the altar a golden candlestick.  This candlestick was unusual in that it held seven candles.  It was so fashioned that out from the one central candlestick branched six other candles so as to form a candelabrum which held seven candles. The description of this candelabrum is remarkably detailed in Exodus (25:31-40).   

    And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knobs, and his flowers, shall be of the same….Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knob and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knob and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.  

The Menorah

First of all, the candlestick is made of pure gold, symbolizing the spirit and golden substance of love out of which the seven endocrine glands, along with the entire body temple, are made.  It was a “beaten work” which means it was all made out of one solid piece of gold.  As portrayed in this picture of the Menorah, the shaft, branches, bowls, knobs and flowers of this candlestick symbolize the endocrine system with its masculine and feminine hormonal glands, many of them almond-like in shape. They are blended together in this candelabrum just as both the man and the woman have masculine and feminine energies working within them.   

     A profound sense of awe comes over me each time I read this passage, arousing in my innermost core a sense of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine together in rapturous embrace — Father God received into the womb of Mother God.   It is clearly apparent to me that present within our own body temples is the reality which this prophetic candelabrum symbolizes — the seven endocrine glands powered by the Spirit of Love focused in the Pineal and carefully coordinated by the Spirit of the Womb via the Pituitary, to make the Spirit of Life manifest in the body temple with all its majesty and glory in a continual ceremony of ascension. Here, indeed, is where divine Man was created and placed by the LORD God on the sixth day of creation.  Not the mortal man we know today but divine Man, a state of Immortal Being which we have long forgotten but are beginning to re-member, not only in theory but in actual experience.

     The first divine man . . . was created on the sixth day; that is, on the sixth plane of world being, where union takes place and the change from negative to positive is consummated. Divine man was to have dominion over all the earth, and everything on the earth.  (Uranda, The Triune Ray)

   Here is the positive radiation of love coming to focus in the masculine energy which gives its release potency and penetration. This description of “his shaft, his branches, his bowls, his knobs and his flowers” portrays the Divine Masculine in his positive, vertical presence in harmonious partnership with the Divine Feminine, drawing forth the creativity inherent in her responsive juiciness and elegant, nurturing reception and embrace of his seminal expressions of love at the sixth level of being where they were placed together in the Garden planted Eastward in Eden to dress and to keep it.  She never tires in her role of preparing a fertile womb for their gestation, protection and maturation.

The Spirit of the Womb contains the very essences of the Creative Process at the sixth plane of being, a principle that is solely concerned with bringing forth the seeds of love through the cycles of conception, gestation, growth and development, and eventual harvest and birth.  It is the role of Mother God, played so majestically and meticulously, looking after every last detail with as much care as she will show for the baby itself once it is born through her womb. It is the role of Father God empowering her and supporting her in every large and small way needed for their labor of love. Man, Masculine and Feminine, is the Mother of God.

   This was not just an ordinary candelabrum for holding candles to illumine an otherwise dark temple.  It was a ceremonial candle depicting the profoundly sacred and erotogenic anatomy of Man which is designed to facilitate creation, which itself was designed to facilitate the ceremony of ascension of substance before the throne of God in heaven as well as on earth. —-(Excerpted from SACRED ANATOMY)

Culling and Purification by Resonance

“The prince of this world cometh, and findeth nothing in me.” (Jesus)

I would like to pause in this series to focus on purification of the heart, mainly because it’s what we’re going through, individually and collectively, as conditions in the global climate, and in world politics, heat up. In the physical body, purification is a function of the Thymus gland and immune system — which we will consider later. In the spiritual body, purification takes place in the heart. 

______________________________________________________________

 OF SHEEP, GOATS AND WOLVES

There was good reason why shepherds mixed goats in with their herd of sheep in Biblical days. The reason was to protect the sheep from being attacked by wolves. It seems the strong body odor of the goats provided a protective shield around the herd, acting as sort of a “wolf-repellent.” I guess wolves don’t particularly like goat for dinner, or being gored by their pointed horns.  Whatever the reason, wolves tended to stay away from sheep herds that had goats mixed in with them. Upon returning from the grazing fields to the corral, the sheep were culled out from the goats and placed in separate enclosures — thus the Biblical parable of the shepherd separating the sheep from the goats.

CULLING BY RESONANCE

Today we are experiencing the reality portrayed by this parable, only the culling is by resonance. It’s vibrational and it works through the heart. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

The full passage from James Allen’s book reads:

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought.

Those seeds of thought lay dormant in the heart and spring forth in resonance with a vibration in an outside source — a teacher, for example Jesus, or a spiritual guru — or, in the case of a terrorist, a radical ideology.

In musicology the principle of resonance states that when a single tone is played, that tone will find a similar and sympathetic frequency in another instrument and cause it to sound,

THE TONE OF POLITICAL RHETORIC

Resonance occurs between all vibrating substances, including people. We tend to gravitate towards people who “strike a chord” in us, as we say. That’s resonance — and here in the US there’s been a lot of resonance experienced in us as we’ve listened to the rhetoric coming out of Washington DC these past few years. The fact is, our resonance with the tone of that rhetoric, and lack thereof, has served as a culling factor in calling us out and amplifying the split in our Nation right down the middle into right and left “camps.” Not “right and wrong” but simply “right and left” — conservative and liberal — and there are degrees of conservatism and liberalism. We have the “far right” and the “far left,” and the “moderates” in between these two extremes.  We are divided and separated from one another by our political views — our resonance with different ideologies and views — none of which are worthy of us,

Before we got separated into camps, we were all mixed together, like the sheep with the goats, and we respected one another’s political views and orientation. Not anymore. Unless you are prepared to meet the repercussions, you are wise to avoid bringing up politics at a family gathering. 

EVANGELICAL RHETORIC

This holds true with the topic of religion as well – perhaps even more so. There’s nothing more vexing to my spirit than evangelical rhetoric. I was brought up Catholic and truly believed that only Catholics would go to heaven when they died. All the other religions were outside the circle of “chosen ones.” I used to preach this narrow and misguided view trying to convince others that, if they wanted to go to Heaven, they needed to become Catholics. I was a “staunch Catholic,” even an aspirant to the priesthood. But I was not being a Christian. A true Christian would love people just the way they are and respect their beliefs.

My awakening came when a wise teacher told me with a compelling tone of authority: “You are not a Catholic. You are a human being made in the image and likeness of God.” Shortly after that surprisingly resonant encounter with primal truth, I stopped being a Catholic and set out on a path toward learning how to live life as an authentic human being made in the image and likeness of God, with love, respect and compassion for all – “believers” and “nonbelievers” alike.  

RESONANCE REVEALS WHAT’S REALLY INSIDE US

Resonance is a good thing, as it exposes and releases the hidden patterns of thought and feeling that spur our behavior. It lets us see what’s really inside ourselves and gets it out here where we can observe it, bless it, and take steps to change the way we think in our hearts.  In this sense, it’s a blessing, for instance, when feelings of fear and hate are triggered by what someone says, or preaches from their political lectern — or what we see on social media and hear in the news. Only we do not have to act on those feelings.

I recall a television interview with Dr. Depak Chopra, a highly regarded and beloved spiritual guru. It was during the 2016 presidential elections when Donald Trump was rising to take the helms of our Nation’s government. The interviewer asked Dr. Chopra what he thought about the hate and fear-mongering rhetoric pouring out of this man’s mouth on a daily basis. Depak’s countenance immediately changed as he began formulating his response. He said that he experienced real fear for the first time and it shocked him. The fear in his heart had been hidden from him until this moment in time. He expressed utter dismay in its eruption, triggered up in resonance to the tone of Donald Trump’s rhetoric.

RECLAIMING CAPTIVE ENERGY

Then he shared his realization of what was taking place vibrationally and proceeded to demonstrated how he handled the fear as the mindful person he is. Rather than let the feeling consume his outer being, he observed it with love and embraced it with compassion so as to transform it and reclaim the energy it was holding captive back into the Whole. I was utterly amazed and edified by his mastery and humility.  Even the greatest among us have hidden thoughts and feeling reactions in our hearts that can and will resonate with similar thoughts and feelings in others when they are vented with passion.

Then he said something most profound and prophetic. He said that the repercussions of Trump’s rhetoric had knocked the lid off of the collective unconscious and has released all sorts of ill patterns of thought, feeling and unwholesome spirits that have lay dormant there for eons. Those unholy patterns of thought, feeling and behavior are finding expression through the masses and being acted out, particularly by those who resonate with the tone of Trump’s rhetoric.

The lid is off the id and anything can happen . . . not just here in America, but globally.  Apocalypse — a revelation of what has been hidden, of truth and of deception — is happening.

LET NOT OUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED

Take heart, however, for we can seize the opportunity to let our hearts be cleansed of hidden ill thoughts and feelings that are triggered up, so that when the “prince of this world” comes, it finds nothing in us that resonates with its dissonant hateful tones. These ill thoughts and feelings are held in distorted patterns by energy that has been leached and stolen from the Whole, from the Source of all energy.  Stolen by the human ego, the self-active human mind, which is bringing great wrath to bear on the earth and humanity because it knows that its days are numbered and it has but a short time to exist in its present self-centered state —  and it resists transformation and redemption. In the metaphor above, the wolf is the self-active human mind, the prince of this world, and he has learned to come in sheep’s clothing. 

LET THE HEART BE PURIFIED

We all have a mixture of sheep and goat in us — of true and false beliefs and convictions, of good and bad spirits and attitudes, and buttons that get pushed. Perhaps we have hidden our true convictions behind traditional and conventional beliefs and attitudes in order to avoid judgment and criticism, or inciting an argument with friends we don’t want to lose. Real friends are precious, though rare. Or we criticize and judge so as to appear “only human” in the sight of our peers. My point is that we have a mixture of both pure and vile in us that keeps us, in appearance anyway, out of range of the  wolf’s “evil eye,” so to speak; and there is no one eligible to throw the first stone. 

COMING CLEAN OF BELIEFS 

Whereas I do my best to respect another’s beliefs, short of imposing mine on others, I have come to make no excuses for my own convictions gained by experience of truth in living life beyond my prior beliefs. Truth does, after all, free us of our beliefs.  Should the wolf come, my Spirit will be my “shield and buckler.” There’s no need to defend my truth, nor my Self.  Action may be appropriate, but not defense. The true shepherd steps forward to protect his sheep from the wolf when there are no goats in the herd. The pure of heart see God, see the good in all. There comes a time when one simply cannot hide behind convention and tradition any longer. “Let the chips fall where they may” has served as an appropriate attitude. We can come clean of our beliefs, the ego’s feelings not withstanding.

WHAT IS THE EGO ANYWAY?

The Ego is simply our sense of self; the capacity with which we are consciously aware of who we are. The word “ego” is Latin for “I am,” as we learned in high school. We have been taught that we are “only human.” But that is our human ego speaking. We are Human Beings, and our Being is divine, made in the image and likeness of God. We can begin the process of remembering who we are by changing how we see ourselves, not as “merely human” but as Human Beings, as Divine Man, masculine and feminine. That is the truth of the matter. Our sense of self, our ego, is being called to “come up hither” and give us the capacity to know who we truly are, our Divine Self.

RESONANCE WITH THE TONE OF LOVE UPLIFTS

OM in a drop of oil

Speaking and acting out of love, expressing the qualities of Being, such as peace, thankfulness, and compassion, we sound a Tone with which those who have resonant substance in their hearts can resonate. With many now so living and expressing out of love, a line is drawn upon the Earth based on resonance to the Tone of the Seventh Angel’s Trumpet. 

That Angel visited this planet two-thousand-plus years ago and set the Tone for the culling of the body of Man on Earth. Those who resonate with the Tone of Love rise up in joy. There is no need to judge those who do not resonate with Love but who yet resonate with fear and hate. That’s not my business. The Lord would that none should perish, but that all should come to repentance and turn from their orientation in the material world and discover their spiritual orientation and true identity as sons and daughters of the Father and brothers and sisters to one another.  It is my prayer as well.  But let us not tarry, as time is no more. 

Until my next post, when I will resume sharing excerpts from Sacred Anatomy, let your beautiful light shine,

Extinguishing Fire With Sound

My Chorale PicI learned something today that turned on a light in my mind. Someone posted a video clip on Facebook demonstrating how fire can be extinguished with sound – a very low frequency bass sound. Here’s the demo:

Can you see how and why this works? Think about it for a moment. Fire results when atoms and molecules vibrate at a super high frequency, so high that they emit, or transmit, light so intense that it sets matter on fire. Now, the fuel in the skillet is already a high-frequency fuel, like gasoline or lighter fluid.  Add a little frequency boost with fire and the fuel immediately ignites, consuming the oxygen around it.

So how does the low frequency bass sound put out the fire? One possibility is by lowering the vibration of the fuel to such a low level that the atoms and molecules don’t burn.  In other words, fire results when molecules vibrate at a super high frequency. It would seem logical that if you lower the frequency at which they vibrate, they would stop burning. Another possibility is that the bass sound pushes the air with such a force that it blows the fire out. I am inclined to go with the first possibility.

I’ve been working with energy in my attunement with sound healthcare service for some forty years, researching the use of sound in healing for a book that is presently being released by Amazon: Attunement with Sacred Sound.  Being an energy and sound healer, I immediately saw how this phenomenon of sound extinguishing fire may work – (the first possibility above). You see, high frequencies increase the vibration of molecules whereas low frequencies decrease their vibration. This is why most of my clients love the lower frequencies of my fourteen and sixteen inch quartz crystal bowls. Their sound waves are calming. They put out the fire of anxiety, fear and worry, all high-frequency emotional and mental states.  They also calm down inflammation in the body that’s causing pain. I also use the high frequency sounds for fine-tuning the endocrine and chakra energy centers. After I’ve finished fine-tuning these energy centers, I finish with my fourteen-inch C quartz crystal bowl, which I use to attune the skeletal system along with the organs of the body. The low sound frequency is very grounding.

This brings up another way of looking at this sound healing technique, which is to see high frequencies as facilitating ascension to higher levels of being and low frequencies as facilitating a descent of spirit into fuller incarnation in the physical body.  In other words, low frequencies encourage and facilitate grounding, an essential aspect of sound healing, as sound has a tendency to lift one out of the physical and into a more spiritual state of being. Sound healing tends to be un-grounding — a word of caution to my fellow sound healers.

I like a comment a friend and colleague made about attunement on my FB post. He writes: “Attunement modulates and influences vibrational patterns , allowing a pattern that is out of control to return to it’s natural rate [of vibration].”  Sound can serve as a carrier wave for the attunement or healing current. This is what my book is all about. The following is the announcement of the imminent release of my book:

ANNOUNCING the RELEASE ofmy NEW BOOK

Attunement with Sacred Sound provides a pivotal revelation about the phenomenal connection you and I have to the powerfully grand energies of all creation. The seeming platitude that states, “We are all one,” or “We are one with everything,” is quite true, in fact! Keep reading and you will discover more about just how profoundly this is the case.                   From the Foreword by PenDell Pittman

Sound is a tool for creation.  Not just any sound, but sound that carries a tone and a wave form that is coherent and pure. We call this “music.”  Then there’s the “Musica Universales, or Music of the Spheres” an ancient concept attributed to Pythagoras who reportedly could hear the musical harmonies of the planets. Are these the sound waves that carry the Word that creates all things sent forth by the Creator into the void of space? Pythagoras based our musical theory on this mathematically precise Musica.

Musical sound is being used extensively and increasingly in the healing arts. It can be used effectively with attunement and all forms of energy work. My use of sound in attunement is not so much to heal our physical ills as it is to facilitate the generation and clarification of pneumaplasm, the rarified spiritual substance that connects spirit with form. It is through this substance that spirit has a means of connecting with and managing the world of physical form. This is the medium for the propagation of the Tone that creates all living things and through which Love comes forth out of heaven to touch the earth of our flesh – or, perhaps more accurately, how flesh rises to touch heaven, spiritualized by the radiant current of Love moving in and through it. When flesh is touched by Love it is uplifted, transformed, made whole and holy. What I am suggesting here is that music, harmonic sound, is a tool that can be used as a carrier wave for spirit in the healing and transformational processes.

I emphasize the word resonance in this work to remind us that we are not manipulating physical substance – or mental and spiritual substance for that matter – with sound. We are simply sounding a tone that may engender and give rise to a resonantresponse from within the person’s heart of hearts. It is the vibration of the resonant response within the individual – self or other – that does the ‘work’ in harmonizing and uplifting the vibrations of life in the tissue cells of the body.

My interest in the art of Sacred Sound relates to how it may enhance our attunement energy work as a tool that is vibrational in nature. Beyond the human voice, there are musical and sound-producing instruments that lend themselves to the art of Sacred Sound – such as singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks, drums, and a few others I explore in the book.

My book will be available at www.Amazon.com. Book Price: $35.99 (includes postage within the USA)

Order my book and explore a whole new dimension of sound healing. Purchase a quartz crystal bowl (an 8″ F or a 14″ C bowl) and play it for a few minutes every day. Better still, invest in two bowls, the 8″ F and the 14″ C bowls: F is for the heart Chakra and C is for the bones and whole body.  Play them together and enjoy the harmony they produce. This is a very smart investment in your whole health.

Until my next post, here’s to your good health.

“Sonic Geometry” and the . . . . “Music of the Spheres”

Tony Pics for SA BookThis is a fascinating video, especially for the mathematicians and musicians among us, as well as those of us who know  Sacred Geometry. For the mathematician, the presentation delves into numbers and numerical ratios that form the basis for structure and shaping of life forms in our world and throughout the Universe. For the musician, it presents the geometrical basis for the Pythagorean determination of note frequency values and the musical scale used here in the West. For those knowledgeable of Sacred Geometry, you’ll find nothing new here but you may delight in the clarity and simplicity of the presentation of the profound design behind all of Creation. For the rest of us who are not mathematically, geometrically, or musically inclined, we will find the video full of interesting and thought-provoking historical facts and developments that have led to consciousness evolution and our simple enjoyment of the beauty of form in the Natural world, and of music itself. 

As a musician, I must say that I came away from viewing this video with a deep sense of sadness and disappointment over the changes made to the note frequencies in our modern day musical scale which is based on A 440 rather than on the ancient and more natural A 432, as you will see in the video. I don’t know exactly what to make of it, as all the beautiful music of the Masters we enjoy so much today is written for instruments tuned to an A 440 based scale. So, I don’t know what we’ve been missing out on; perhaps ecstatic sounds and harmonies infinitely more beautiful, uplifting and transforming than even Handel’s Alleluia Chorus. I’ve heard piano music played on a piano that was tuned according to “just tuning,” which is based on natural harmonics as opposed to contrived “even tuning.”  The music seemed to rise to infinite heights and plunge to bottomless depth. What I mostly fear is that the masses are once again being manipulated and kept imprisoned by those who seek to limit the evolution of human consciousness for political power and control purposes. Why did the “powers that be” back then find it so necessary to change these frequency values used to create our music? And why by 8 hertz, the difference between 432 and 440? 

Sacred Sound Tools

Sacred Sound Tools (click on picture to enlarge)

Just for example, take the ancient Solfaggio frequencies of a six-notes scale (ut, re, me, fa, sol, la) used in ancient chants that put people in an ecstatic state of communion with God, rendering the priesthood unnecessary and more of an impediment to the realization of the literal meaning and purpose of religion (which means to bind hack to, in this instance to God) than a facilitation. They were banned by the Catholic Church and forbidden to be used. Fortunately, they have been re-discovered and returned to use in sacred sound healing schools and by alternative healthcare practitioners. I use them in my sound healing work. Their overtones and undertones have no top or bottom. In other words, they are not boxed in as though they existed independent of a larger range of frequencies, like the modern musical scale suggests. There’s no “do” (or in this case “ut”) at the end of the scale to close it off to further expansion into the inaudible range of frequencies, so as to produce a sense that one has arrived at the end of the music. There’s no end to the music of the Salfaggio frequencies. They’re open ended.

Don’t get me wrong or misinterpret my implications here. Classical and even some modern music can warm the heart and bring peace and solitude to one’s soul and inner terrain, even bring one to a state of ecstasy — or perhaps mesmerize and lull one into an oblivious state of utter tranquility and receptivity to subliminal encoded suggestions. Don’t think it isn’t done in elevators and shipping malls and via the music played in the background of TV commercials. But does it facilitate real transformation and ascension of consciousness? Can it lift one’s spirit to ecstatic heights of union with God? Possibly. Handel was said to have exclaimed “I have seen the face of God!” upon completing his Alleluia Chorus. But did it change his life here on earth? To see God is not necessarily to know God. So many of the great classical composers left us heavenly music while their lives were less than heavenly and harmonious. Their music rather seemed to have driven some of them mad, as did art for some artists, like Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, whom Kirk Douglas portrayed so dramatically in Lust for Life.    

I had a dream many years ago when I began to explore sacred sound as a healing modality. And in this dream I heard a chord that ascended and descended in ranges of frequency to infinity. It had no beginning and no end but encompassed both earth and heaven as a connecting chord — perhaps the mythical and mystical “Lost Chord.”  I head that sound again many years later during a workshop intensive I was presenting in Attunement with Sacred Sound at a retreat center in Corona, California. We were combining sacred harmonies with sacred energy, using sound as a carrier wave for spirit. Apparently the sacred energy of love took the harmonies we were toning and lifted them up to their natural tones and overtones to carry it upward and outward for world healing. Heaven and earth were definitely connected by the sound wave of harmony we were generating. It was as though we had generated a tangible and malleable substance — what we know of a “pneumaplasm” in the Attunement Field — fine enough for the spirit of Love to move through and flow down out of heaven into the earth . . . and I now begin to see, even as I write these words, that perhaps this is what has been taken away by mind-oriented and manipulative man by changes made to the ancient musical scale based on A 432. Just perhaps. I would love to see the restoration of the original tone frequencies based on Sacred Geometry. It was encouraging to hear that a movement is underway among musicians to tune guitars, flutes and other instruments to A 432.

If you wish to read further on this historical and ongoing pitch battle, you’ll find this rather comprehensive article by Colin Dickey most informative and entertaining: “Pitch Battles — How a paranoid fringe group made musical tuning and international issue.”

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 5: Questions Answered, page 4, Meditation

Tony's picture 2 from PeggyWe’ve been sharing excerpts from the chapter “Questions Answered” in Walter Russell’s 1948 book, THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD. The question for today’s post relates to meditation. 

Until I actually sat down and meditated, as I do on some mornings when I arise early, I thought that meditation was a complicated and arduous spiritual practice. I mean, quiet the mind from thinking?! My mind?!  My mind never stops thinking.  At least what I used to think of as thinking: a mind busying itself in thought – inquiry, judgement, imagination, figuring things out, etc. That’s not really thinking. It’s entertaining thoughts passing through.  True thinking arises out of stillness when the human mind disengages itself from the stream of thoughts flowing through it and, like a turning water wheel, engages with the stream of consciousness flowing from above, down, inside and out.  My spiritual mentor says it very succinctly in these words from a poem he wrote:

. . . Busy thought and troubled feeling

Trespass not in virtue’s wise serenity

Where firm control and awful power eternally abide.

Here Earth’s pains are healed

And cruel chaos of mind’s spawning

Is called again to order and to beauty.  ( Martin Cecil, “Thus It Is”)

When I simply got still and listened to the sounds around me, I suddenly became aware that I am nothing more than the awareness that makes the sounds and sights in my world heard and seen. Without me, they simply would not exist. Then IT caught me and took me in.  IT being what I was using meditation to find by somehow “going in.” It came forth and found me once I got still enough and allowed the thoughts to enter and leave my mind without following them or chasing them away. You really can’t “go in” to find your Self.  Your Self has to come out into expression to be known through experience. Effortless expression is the key.  There’s no special technique or formula for meditation, as Russell suggests here: 

Q. I know that the wonderful freedom of easy breathing, just as the keenness of the senses, is closely associated with inner-feeling. Is there any simple rule that might be applied to bring about that condition of ecstasy which is characteristic of cosmic conscious people or even to induce meditation?

A. There is no necessity for a technique or formula for meditation. Inner-feeling, or inner-knowing, is the Silent Voice of inspiration within us. One automatically breathes easier as desire for effort ceases. The more forgetful one is of one’s body, the more one is freed for the transition from outer emotions to conscious stillness.

If one desires that ecstasy of being in the God-Light, breathing will become effortless. It will slow the heartbeat also by relaxing the body. One of the greatest means of relaxing the body is to stop thinking and meditate — to become one with the Spirit. 

That is the reward of living the conscious life-the most wonderful thing that can happen to anyone. 

A LENS AND A NET

The human mind is like a lens.  It provides the capacity for focus. As a vibrational substance which arises out of the physical body, it is responsive to energy passing through it, such as thought forms. It concentrates its substance around them in order to magnify them. Like a net for snaring birds, the mind has the ability to snare thoughts and blow them up, expand them and even build concepts on and around then so that they become heavy constructs that clutter the mind and prevent fluidity ad flexibility of thinking. 

Those thoughts can come from without and from within. It’s the ones that come from without that the mind is able to snare based on resonance and frequency size.  Like a net that catches birds but whose mesh is too large to snare butterflies, the mind can only snare large thoughts and concepts. The finer essences of spirit slip right through the net on their way out from within. This is how human being can remain alive, even with destructive thinking and behavior.  Life trickles through even the most crowded and structured mental capacities.

AN UNDERSTANDING HEART

The heart is a finer net that can catch the butterflies of inspiration. These inspirational thoughts lift up the heart and the mind to heights of profound awareness wherein the things of spirit can be contemplated, known and understood. Remember, it was King Solomon who asked the Lord for wisdom and an understanding heart.

There’s a Psalm that speaks of the “snare of the fowler” with which I would like to close this post and leave you to meditate upon. It’s Psalm 91. 

   He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

   I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: My God; in him will I trust.

   Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

   He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield     and buckler.

   Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor the arrow that flieth by day.    Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

   A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

   Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

   Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

   There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

   For he shall give his angels charge over thee,  lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

   Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

   Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

   He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

   With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

All this is available for experience during meditation.  And it need not take an hour to become aware of it. Just be still and know . . . and it will find you more quickly than you can find it.  Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Sacred Minerals

Precious crystals of the mineral kingdom

How beautiful and colorful are these precious crystals of the Mineral Kingdom. Each color represents a different frequency of vibration.  Each vibration composes and plays the Music of the Spheres . . . and all of them are part of our sacred body-temples.

Colorful stones of the mineral kingdom

As I promised in my last blog, I am posting a section from my book Sacred Anatomy which speaks inspiring words about the role of  minerals and trace minerals in our body-temples.  So, here is the first installment. I think you will enjoy it and be inspired.                                                              

 

 Divine Technology at Work

“  . . . and out of the throne proceeded lightnings and  thunderings  and voices.” (Rev. 4:5)

The throne of God in these temples is a living reality on earth.  It reflects and manifests the throne of God which John of Revelation described as “a throne set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.”   This all relates, as we have seen, to the Pineal Body and the focus in this endocrine gland of the Spirit of Love, the incarnate angel in each one, who sits on this throne.  Divine technology is at work here, just as it was at work in the Ark of the Covenant, which provided a throne for Deity in the midst of the Israelites as they wandered in the wilderness.

The Ark may well have been more than just an elaborate and ornate box for carrying the tablets of the Ten Commandments around.  It was more likely a very precisely designed instrument of a highly advanced technology.  As I described it above, it was lined with pure gold.  Gold is more than just a symbol of power in the world.  Gold is power.  There was real power associated with this ark.

Gold is symbolic of love, the only real power there is.  Among other things, this gives rise to the question: What do we really know about love?  It is powerful beyond human power.  Love has been described as the “cohesive power that holds the universe together.”  That same power made itself evident through the Ark with its precise design and the precious metal of gold with which it was overlaid inside and out.

So is it with our own body temples. There is a correlation between the divine technology at work within the human cranium and that which was at work within the Ark of the Covenant. There is an arc of love in the cranium which gives life to the body.  Great power comes to focus in the body with the Spirit of Love governing thought and action through the heart.  These are the spiritual, or vibrational, factors relating to the heaven within.  There are factors relating to the earth that need to be in place as well. I am referring to the elements of the mineral kingdom. These comprise the conduit and control mechanism through which the power of love can work in these human capacities. 

Minerals and Cosmic Powers

In his Steps To Mastership, lesson thirteen, Uranda gives instructions relative to what he refers to as the “Twelve Cosmic Rays,” among other sacred factors essential to the process of  “spiritualization” of physical matter, which are “sometimes spoken of as zodiacal influences [which] form the directing urges by which mankind functions on the physical plane.”  He then makes this revealing statement: “The points of contact within the body through which the twelve Cosmic Rays are enabled to transmit life to the body, are the twelve Organic Minerals found in the body substance.”

Uranda further instructs: “There is a Tree of Life on every plane of being.  The twelve fruits of the Tree of Life on the physical plane are the twelve body minerals.”  He then goes on to say that all twelve minerals are needed for health in the body, which must be attained before one can be influenced by the Twelve Cosmic Rays.  These twelve minerals and cosmic rays are represented by the “twenty and four elders” who stood around the throne and bowed down to the One who sat thereon casting their crowns down before Him. Great power is released in our bodies when these twelve minerals are present and their powers made available to the One I Am.

Inorganic minerals have a covalent power of their own which causes them to bond together as solid foundational rock. As they are taken up into the vegetable kingdom they are chelated,  literally clawed apart, by organic acids in the plants and then re-arranged and proportioned so as to make them available to the animal kingdom. Inorganic compounds become organic through this process.  In this sense they give up their crowns, their independence and power, to become part of the living temple.  In the process of surrender, their powerful energies are released inside our bodies—the “thunderings and lightnings” that proceeded forth from out of the throne.

These organic minerals are: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, Fluorine, Chlorine, Silica, Manganese, Sulphur, and Iodine.  Their functions in the body temple are many and varied. All are essential to the function of the endocrine glands and the nervous system’s capacity to carry electrical current, as well as in the production of enzymes. All are instrumental in the ceremony of ascension in both the body temple and in the larger Cathedral of the Natural World.     (To be continued)

About my book . . .

Your Sacred Anatomy offers a powerful and personal theme for meditation. This book was written to evoke deep currents in the heart for the sacred in everyday life. The author takes you beyond mainstream and even alternative health care to consider the human body in its true purpose and function as a holy temple and an instrument for the magic of creation.

 Have you ever wondered how spirit steps down into flesh and incarnates?  If indeed our bodies are temples of the living God, as sacred scripture teaches, how does the spirit of God dwell in them?  What is the mechanism through which spirit incarnates so completely as to govern every detail of our bodily functions?

 Gain a deeper understanding of the sacred nature of your physical body.  Discover a new perspective of an aspect of your anatomy that receives little attention until hormonal chemistry is thrown into a state of imbalance.  Come to appreciate the vital role your seven endocrine glands play in bringing the gifts of spirit and learn how illness plagues human existence when these gifts are withheld and hormonal glands fail to function normally. You will see clearly the role you play in determining which way this plays out in your own life experience.

 This book will profoundly change the way you view and treat your human capacities. You will find both inspiration and practical spirituality as you explore the chemistry and alchemy of the endocrine system which sets the stage for the dance of spirit with flesh.

(From the back cover of Sacred Anatomy . . . where spirit and flesh dance in the fires of creation.
