Around the turn of the Millenium, I walk through my friends semi-detached house from the lounge to the kitchen, deep in contemplation of the Noble 8 Fold Path of the Buddha and the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. I wonder if I might have managed to climb up onto one of the lower branches of the tree, when I suddenly went into spontaneous Gnosis and found myself at the top, Keter.
The whole of my torso vibrated and filled with white light. My 3rd eye opened. I was Shiva, the Divine Masculine, observing Shakti, the Divine Feminine, giving birth to Individual Consciousness. I had pierced the veil. Unconditional Love sent me deep into rapture. I knew. I know, that all being is held in this embrace of Unconditional Love.
Then the AEGO intervened, as Ahriman Edged God Out. The vibration ceased, the white light disappeared and the 3rd Eye closed, whilst the AEGO proclaimed that this most glorious of experiences was taboo. That meant the Hosts of Hell might come calling. The Heart wanted to open for the next few years and though the experience of rapture receded, the affect has remained my companion ever since.
Life would never be the same again. I had experienced the metaphysical reality consciously, which we all do in sleep subconsciously. It became my primary reality. I know I am an immortal being, consciousness, fashioning, informing and sustaining a mortal body. A co-creator within the womb of my cosmic mother, amidst some 8 billion other individuated co-creators, also under the influence of Ahriman.
Turning away from Spirit had a negative effect on the physical body. Several years after that experience I went to see an Osteopath. His tentative diagnosis was hereditary scoliosis. I reflected that I’d created it, so it was up to me to sort it out. Around the same time, whilst attending a course at Schumacher College in Devon in 2005/6 I found I was unable to sleep comfortably, being in considerable discomfort lying on my back, front or either side. After 3 massages my masseuse told me that she couldn’t help me and recommended Cranio-Sacral Therapy. During the first session the therapist scanned my body with his hands, without touching it, and released through my left arm a considerable amount of what I can only describe as energy. I was able to sleep comfortably again. My rehabilitation had begun.
I had also started attending Yoga classes and Tantra Yoga workshops and eventually became certified as a teacher in Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga in 2012. I was amazed at how being the teacher brought Spirit, Soul and Body together. It continues to assist with my personal development, as has the personal daily practice that came with it.
