Link to a wonderful writing on Theosophic Harmonics- “The All in all, and all within The All.” It is the nature of creation that every frequency branches from the one “Root” (Logos), resonates in its own place within the construct, intersecting and harmonizing at precise points to form the fabric of this reality. Whether these relationships are expressed visually as in sacred geometry, through number and equation or through sound, the intelligence and beauty of the design is inescapable.
The Merkaba (Tetrahedron/Star of David) is used by most traditions to graph what occurs when one source separates to understand itself, and to expand its abilities. It is the core geometric form in many sacred graphs, such as the Far East Mandalas and Yantras. The merkaba represents source examining itself – what it is and is not – the polarities that exist to hold energy in place. It is often used as the symbol for creation itself, and in some cases the central symbol for certain deities.
The human race has been trained, and programmed to believe that external medicines are necessary for all ailments. I’m not saying that some medical applications are not valid, I’m just saying the human race completely ignores the power of non-physical phenomenon. We continue to believe that we need something outside of ourselves to heal, when everything points to the fact that this is not entirely true.
There are many names for being ‘empathic’ or being an ‘empath’, but the most common name for this ability or skill is ‘clairsentient’ - the ability to ‘sense clearly’. Having ‘clairsentient’ or ‘empathic’ or ‘empath’ skills can be confusing and at times even confronting as you may feel overwhelmed by emotions that you KNOW are not your own. When you possess an ability such as ‘clairsentience’ you may often possess others such as ‘clairvoyance’ (the ability to ‘see clearly’), ‘clairaudience’ (the ability to ‘hear clearly’), ‘claircogniance’ (‘clear thinking’, learning and knowing) and others such as premonitionary skills, animal communication skills and/or you may have an extremely strong intuition and maybe even the ability to see, hear, connect and communicate with Spirit (eg ghosts, angels, spirit guides and passed over people on the ‘Other Side’)
Being empathic and other abilities are gifts to be cherished and used for the highest good of all. It gives one the ability to ‘feel’ and understand life, (and others) at a deeper level, as well as expand our own awareness and perceptions. There are different kinds of empathic people, or empaths. Some pick up on physical elements and feel physical aches, pains, symptoms and ailments. Others feel other’s emotional pain and upheaval, as well as others’ joy and happiness. An empath is able to feel the emotions or physical state of another person as if it was their own. Empaths feel the need to help others just as strongly as the need to breath and stay alive. Many can sense atmospheric changes and disturbances, others can ‘feel’ animals, and yet others can feel electromagnet waves and energies.
Empaths (and highly sensitive people) must shield themselves from negative vibrations from others and the environment around them (eg shopping centres and crowds). Empaths must also ground themselves in order to re-balance themselves. This can be easily done by being in contact with nature, by utilizing crystals, and with the use of salt lamps and essential oils.
Being empathic also requires the ability to balance energies. The Chakras must remain clear, clean and free-flowing in order to function at their optimum. This can be done during meditation and spiritual healing as well as via other techniques. Being empathic makes you a kind of beacon for those who are unable (or unwilling) to create their own energy, and instead, steal it from others. Empaths are most susceptible to this form of ‘attack’ as they are highly sensitive, spiritual beings.
Some people are unaware that they drain the energy of others, whilst others are very aware and do it with purpose and for their own gain. People who drain others’ energies are those who constantly live with ongoing distressing moments and events and those who use fear, manipulation and a need for sympathy in order to attract attention and energy. They are generally very needy people with ongoing dramas who always lay the blame at someone else’s feet. They are the ‘drama queens’ of the world who always ‘need’ your help. It is up to each individual empath to cut off communication with that person (or people) and restrict their personal energy, and seek protection. Ask your Angels or Higher Self (or Source) to cut the connection with that person (or people) and ask for healing, balance and strength. Learn to recognise the signs early and steer clear of them! Part of our jobs as empaths (or being empathic) is to raise the energy and vibrational rate of our surrounding and others. This can be achieved through prayer, sending out healing, love and light, and by helping others and our planet.

Everything in the universe is energy. Nothing is actually solid. Instead objects are made up of microscopic particles vibrating at such a fast rate that they appear solid. Our limited sense of sight doesn’t let us see the movement, or vibration, of the particles. Vibrational Therapy, also called Vibrational Medicine and Energy Medicine, is based on the scientific principles that all matter vibrates to a precise frequency and that by using resonant vibration, balance of matter can be restored.
"Every time we inhale, we breathe in 10²² atoms, including approximately one million of the same atoms of air inhaled by everyone who has ever lived on this planet. Every time we exhale, we return these atoms to the atmosphere to be renewed not just for those living on the earth right now but also for all future generations. Just being aware of these simple facts can have a profound impact on your breath and on your sense of yourself."
the Human Energy Field (hereafter called HEF)
The HEF is a field of consciousness and it is maintained by the incarnated personality. It is a sphere of life force energy which surrounds the body and provides the life force energy necessary for its maintenance. Cell division, for example, requires energy! Within the HEF are the programmed templates which are responsible for the design and functioning of every cell and organ (not shown).
Your mind puts out a powerful broadcast of energy. It determines how you experience the world and what you create. Your thoughts are magnetic; they go out from you and draw to you those things you think about. Your inner dialogue is important, for the way you speak to yourself determines the events, people, and objects you attract. Orin
There are millions of people in whom the evolutionary organ is already slightly active. It is the men and women of this class who comprise the more dynamic and intelligent section of the human race, but their temperaments are different.
The allopathic system of therapy in the West takes no account of the variations of temperament in different individuals, but it might have to revise its attitude in the course of time. Just as there are different types of blood, so there are also different constitutional peculiarities in human beings. These peculiarities spring from the activity of the particular channel — ida, pingala, or sushumna — through which the kundalini force is predominantly active.
The bioplasma which energizes all organic systems has a slightly different spectrum for every human being. The variations in the constitution of the kundalini force are also reflected in this spectrum. This is the reason why, on the awakening of the force, radical changes occur in the working of all the organs in the body, as there is now a change in the pattern of the force which energizes them.
In the case of a sudden, powerful arousal of the Serpent Power, the utmost care has to be taken of the following: (1) the state of mind, (2) the intake of food, and (3) erotic behavior. The will must have been already cultivated to exercise control over the now chaotic state of the mind. Like the pendulum of a clock, it oscillates between hope and fear, anxiety and assurance, joy and sorrow, for no apparent reason, as if pushed from this side to that and back again by an invisible force from within in a manner entirely unpredictable to the subject of the experience. If the will is not firm and lacks the strength to hold itself in check, the oscillations can lead to those irresponsible acts which are a characteristic of mental disorder.
Attention to diet is as necessary as attention to breath. The energy expended by the highly increased metabolism in the body must be replenished time after time to allow the brain to function in its altered condition. The awakening causes an upheaval in the whole system, throwing the normal rhythm of the body into utter disorder. It takes months and even years to bring order into this chaos so that the organs and tissues get accustomed to the flow of the altered bioplasmic currents. Until then, the body acts in the same way that it does to counteract the effect of a serious infection which threatens life.
The reason why the guidance of a competent guru has been considered necessary at this time is because the exigency created needs careful handling, time after time, to avert disaster. The only way to allow the body to cope with the serious situation is to keep its store of energy from depletion. This can only be done through the intake of food at regular intervals in moderate quantities. But the combination of the various articles of diet is also of utmost importance. As in the case of infants, milk is the most appropriate body and brain building food for this transformation and, when combined with other articles of diet in proper proportion, provides the ideal nourishment for cases of this kind.
The veneration for the cow in India has a deeper significance behind it than is generally supposed. It could have sprung from cases of kundalini arousal in which milk literally acted as the savior of life. This property of milk does not depend merely on its chemical composition but also the quality of prana contained in it. Less than a century ago even expert physicians had no knowledge of vitamins and hormones. They are wiser now. They will be wiser still when they are able to detect prana and study it.
Classification of temperaments into four broad categories, namely the bilious, the phlegmatic, the sanguine and the melancholic* according to the ancient Greeks, and into three according to the Indian treatises, has a sound physiological reason behind it. More or less activation of kundalini through the three channels can be the cause of these three types of temperament in the individuals in whom the power is working. Preponderance through pingala can lead to the bilious, through ida to phlegmatic and through sushumna to sanguine temperaments. The permutations and combinations of these broad categories can lead to other areas of difference in the constitutions and temperaments of human beings. It is these hidden springs of human life and behavior which further research on kundalini is sure to bring to light.
There is no doubt that a moderate amount of meditation in a balanced individual who avoids overstrain and is free from worry can prove of great help in inner unfoldment and the building of a harmonious personality. But excessive meditation in a system with a leaning either towards pingala or ida or under constant mental stress and strain can be harmful instead of beneficial. I am constantly reminded of this fact by other cases of those who have suffered harm with these practices.
Inert and passive types of meditation that induce a relaxed, daydream-like state are helpful in soothing tense or strained conditions of the mind. But they can also be a great disadvantage. Constant practice of this type of meditation (which is really reverie rather than meditation proper) can become a habit. It can then intervene even at times when alertness is needed and make concentration and one-pointed application of the mind very difficult. In certain cases even the power to apply the mind to the everyday problems of life can be lost, and unhealthy tendencies of withdrawal from the world become manifest.
Active meditation, moderately done without overstraining the brain, strengthens the will and adds to one’s power to keep a grip on the mind when it is applied to a task. With regular practice the grip on the mind can become firmer until a stage is reached when it can be kept steadily occupied with a problem and absorbed in meditation without conscious effort of the will. This is the crucial point beyond which, with properly directed endeavor, samadhi, or mystical trance, can be achieved. Proficiency in meditation can allow the meditator to concentrate the mind easily without constant effort of the will in the same way that constant practice enables the nimble fingers of an expert typist to manipulate the typewriter while the mind is engaged in reading what is to be typed.
The aim of meditation is to increase the power of attention to a point where the conscious center in the brain is pressed to a greater and more sustained activity under the direction of the will. The ultimate effort of the constant exercise of the conscious center is the activation of the silent paranormal chamber and the arousal of kundalini. With the start of this new activity the normal strength and pattern of bioenergy becomes insufficient to feed the brain. Supply from a new source becomes imperative to preserve sanity and life. This new and most potent source of psychic energy is provided by the reproductive system. How the reversal of the action of the generative organs and the activity of the paranormal chamber comes into effect, only sustained research on kundalini will disclose.
* The natures of the four temperaments, according to the Greeks, are (1) bilious - bad-tempered or cross; (2) phlegmatic - calm, cool, sluggish or dull; (3) sanguine - warm, cheerful, optimistic or passionate; and (4) melancholic - sad, sober, gloomy or depressed.

Unseen devices in the brain record
And judge the thoughts and acts of mortal men,
And every single act brings its reward
In time, without revealing where and when.
Gopi Krishna, The Shape of Events to Come, 1968
“Without concepts, leave your awareness, just as it is, in the steady vision of appearances. If you can do so, that is the best of meditations. In terms of recognizing the nature of awareness, the spiritual mentors of the past stated that it could be ascertained in the interval following the cessation of one thought and prior to the arising of the next thought. In that interval there is an emptiness. How long is this interval? It’s a mistake to think it is short in duration. Rather, it is the very nature of both samsara and nirvana. In the very steady vision of appearances, right in the instant, in the instantaneous vision of the instantaneous moment of appearances, you can recognize the essential nature of the mind.”
