“ . . . and out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices.” (Rev. 4:5)
WE’VE BEEN CONSIDERING COSMIC POWER and the role the Mineral Kingdom plays in grounding cosmic power in the Earth. We saw how organic minerals ground and channel cosmic energy in and through our body-temples. Let us read on in Sacred Anatomy and meditate on the mystery of life that unfolds through our body-temples. Here’s the final installment in this series, which starts with a recalling of the last paragraph of the previous post and Uranda’s instructions with regard to the Twelve Cosmic Rays:
In his Steps To Mastership, lesson thirteen, Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) gives instructions relative to what he refers to as the “Twelve Cosmic Rays,” among other sacred factors essential to the process of spiritualization, or transmutation, 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. Cosmic energy is released in our bodies when these twelve minerals are present and their powers made available to the One I Am.
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.
Calcium’s function is to build bones and teeth, help with blood coagulation, reduce neuromuscular irritability and facilitate contraction of muscles and nerve conduction in the heart muscles. Magnesium is used in tooth formation, nerve conduction, muscle contraction and enzyme activation. It balances Calcium one-to-two respectively. Sodium plays a large role in acid-base balance, osmotic pressure, blood pH, muscle contractility and nerve transmission. Potassium’s role is with muscle activity, nerve transmission, intracellular acid-base balance and water retention, and energy management. It assists in escorting glucose into muscle cells for energy. Phosphorus in closely associated with Calcium and its functions with bone and teeth formation. It is used in establishing and maintaining acid-base balance, is a component of nucleic acids and is involved in energy production. Iron assists in the formation of hemoglobin and myoglobin, contributes to the production of certain enzymes and iron-sulphur proteins. Fluorine is used in bone and tooth formation. Chlorine is used in acid-base balance, osmotic pressure, blood pH and kidney function.
Silica’s chief role is in the alchemical production of bone tissue through a process of “biological transmutation.” I suspect it also plays a role in memory storage, similar to that of the silica microchip in the computer. It is believed that bones provide an atomic memory engram depository that contains the record not only of contemporary legacies but of ancient ones as well. Manganese is essential to joint mobility and ligament tone, strength and elasticity. It is also vital to the function of the Pituitary gland and plays a component part in the makeup of manganese-specific enzymes. Sulphur is an antibiotic that also helps with joint motility. Finally, Iodine is essential to the production of thyroxine in the thyroid gland (T4) and triodothyronine (T3), both essential to growth and development. It also plays a role as an energy-control mechanism and in fetal differentiation.
Not mentioned by Uranda are the seventy-two or more trace minerals that play empowering roles in the balancing of body chemistry, especially with the hormones. Just to name a few of them, Selenium, found in wheat germ oil, plays a key role as part of the Vitamin E complex in the cardiovascular system. Technically, Selenium is a component of the enzymes glutathione peroxidase, which metabolizes hydroperoxides formed from polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as enzymes that take the iodine out of thyroid hormones before they are recycled. Chromium is a trace mineral that promotes the utilization of glucose by the muscle cells, thereby supporting the glucose tolerance factor in the bloodstream. Molybdenum is a transitional metal that forms oxides and is a component of a coenzyme essential to the activity of xanthine oxidase, sulfite oxidase, and aldehyde oxidase, enzymes involved in preventing toxic levels of sulfite, xanthine and aldehyde (such as formaldehyde) in the blood stream.
Magnesium, which most Americans are deficient in, and the trace mineral Gold are essential to balanced and clear mental function. The presence and function of Gold in the brain is not surprising in light of the presence of the focus of Love in the Pineal. The trace mineral silver is a protective element that vibrationally alters pathogens, such as harmful bacteria and viruses, upon contact.
These elements of the mineral kingdom are not only present in a healthy body, their levels and ratios to one another are critical to maintaining healthy function, strength and vitality in the body. Calcium is in critical ratio to Phosphorus, Magnesium and Potassium; Sodium is balanced by Potassium; Copper and Zinc need to be in balanced ratio, as well as Sodium and Magnesium, Copper and Iron. The degree to which these minerals are present in their proper levels and ratios, the body is healthy. To the degree they are not, the body is sick and dying.
While Copper intensifies cellular activity, activating estrogen in cell proliferation, Zinc, which activates progesterone and testosterone, cools it down. The body contains two to three grams of Zinc, found mainly in bones, teeth, hair, skin, the liver, muscle, leukocytes and in the testes. It plays a role in skin integrity, enzymes, wound healing and growth. Inorganic Copper is a heavy metal whose unbound ions are toxic. Almost all of the Copper in the body is present as an organic mineral component of copper proteins, thereby reducing the in-vivo concentration of unbound copper ions almost to zero. On average, an adult has about 150 mg of Copper in the body, of which about 10 to 20 mg are in the liver. (Most of the information about the function of these minerals was taken from The Merck Manual, Seventeenth Edition.)
So we see there is an amazing interrelationship of checks and balances in the way minerals and trace minerals are arranged and proportioned in the body by reason of the chelating activity in the vegetable kingdom, which is designed to provide nutritional nourishment for the animal kingdom, a kingdom which our present physical capacities are yet part of.
Up until recently these essential nutrients have been virtually ignored in commercial farming. In America, our agricultural lands were declared demineralized and, therefore, unfit for farming as early as the 1940’s, resulting in Americans becoming the most over-fed and under-nourished nation in the world. Whereas the human body needs some fifty nutrients for healthy function, our soils are given but a handful of commercial chemicals with which to work in order to produce vegetables and fruit that are pleasant to the eyes but empty of life-sustaining nutrients.
Adrenal exhaustion is presently surfacing as the primary malady of people in this country and the fundamental, underlying cause of nearly all bodily malfunctions. In his important book, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, naturopathic physician Dr. James L. Wilson decries the fact that doctors have been dealing with . . .
“. . . a problem of monstrous proportions that is largely unrecognized by the medical establishment. This has left millions of people suffering from an untreated problem that interferes not only with their ability to function but also with their capacity to enjoy life. It is difficult to assess exactly how much money is lost by corporations due to worker absenteeism, poor or clouded decision making, alcoholism, drug abuse, ‘nervous breakdowns,’ burnout, employee conflict, acute and chronic illness, loss of employees, and a host of other costly problems that stem from the effects of over-stressed adrenal glands.”
Little wonder that this is so, since ninety-five percent of Americans have been declared severely deficient in organic minerals and trace elements. If they are not in the soil, of course, they are not to be found in our foods and therefore not in our bodies in sufficient levels or appropriate proportions. Where minerals and essential trace elements for the conduction of life’s energy are lacking in the human body, the stress of daily activities is almost unbearable.
These precious elements work their vibrational magic within the body according to their specific vibratory frequencies. They are the gifts of the mineral kingdom and can only be taken up into the body in colloidal form as they naturally appear suspended in vegetation. All of these are elements that are readily available today, more than ever before its seems, as Mother Nature yields up her secrets to us in a copious stream of these and other “healing nutrients” in the form of whole food supplements and herbs. I am forever amazed at the timely provision of life as it demonstrates its loving care for the body of Mankind on earth. All that remains is for us each one and all to open up and receive these bountiful gifts with joy and thanksgiving while efforts are increasingly being directed by organic farmers the world around toward replenishing the soil and returning to organic gardening practices.
Organic farming has begun to appear throughout the land, with organically produced vegetables and fruits becoming plentifully available in supermarkets. One way to tell if a vegetable was grown in mineral-rich soil is its sweetness. Minerals make your carrots sweet. If they’re not sweet, they were grown in mineral-depleted soil. To safeguard your body’s health, I recommend a daily supplementation of organically grown minerals and trace minerals. They are essential to the utilization of vitamins . . . and to our reception of cosmic rays.
Standard Process Laboratories in Palmyra, Wisconsin has been making wholefood supplements available to doctors and their patients for over a hundred years. They maintain a large organic farm on site. Its founder, Dr. Royal Lee, was a dentist who believed that a person’s teeth depend on a well-nourished physical body. So he developed a line of wholefood supplements in order to provide his patients with vitamin-and-mineral-rich supplements. I’ve used them in my practice for many decades with rewarding success . . . and I supplement my daily diet with them.
I welcome any thoughts you may have and wish to share. This being Christmas weekend, I wish you each one a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year in 2023. Until my next post,
Be love. Be loved.
