Energy Enhancement Is Much More Effective Than This ..

Speed Up!!

“i Will Make The Victor A Pillar In The Temple Of My God, And He Shall Go Out No More: And I Will Write Upon Him The Name Of My God, And The Name Of The City Of My God, Which Is New Jerusalem, Which Cometh Down Out Of Heaven From My God: And I Will Write Upon Him My New Name.” Revelations 3:12

Several Variations Of The Middle Pillar Exercise Exist, However Their Fundamentals Remain The Same. Whether Or Not One Uses The Elements As Suggested By Regardie In “true Art Of Healing” Or The Sepherothic/planetary Correspondences As He Later Suggests (And Is Most Commonly Used) In His Book “the Middle Pillar” Is Irrelevant. The Methods Used By The Arum Solis Will Also Be Considered As An Alternative Exercise.

The Theoretical Basis Of The Middle Pillar Is That Through Imagination, Breath, And Concentration, The Psychic Energy Of Creation, Here Principally Yetzirah, Can Be Directed Allowing For A Purification Of The Vital Energy That Holds The Secret Fire In Check. As Our Psychic Centers Are Cleansed Of Emotional, Moral, And Materialistic Residue, They Better Reflect The Cosmic Energy That Works Through Them. Through Its Pre-described Pattern Of Circulating The Energy, The Middle Pillar Assists In Smoothing Out The Edges Of Our Aura, As Well As Increasing The Flow Of Energy In General Directions, So That The Psychic Pathways, Both Large And Small, Can Be Purified And Strengthened Through An Increase Of Vital Energy.

The Pathways Described For The Middle Pillar Are Circular In Nature. They Are For The Most Part Large, Clear, And Bright, With A Reflective Quality To Them. Regardie Says That The Psychic Spheres Should Be Imagined Like Large, Clear, Brilliant Diamonds If No Other Color Is Known. Although, In The End, The Entire Sphere, Or Extended Aura, Of The Practitioner Should Be Imagined As A Brilliant Diamond Radiating Heat And Light.

The Beauty Of The Middle Pillar Is That It, Like Many Esoteric Practices, Is Really A Layered Exercise. Containing An Almost Infinite Amount Of Flexibility And Growth Potential. As The Practitioner Develops In Skill And Manipulation Of The Imagery, The Amount Of New Possibilities Increases.

One Of Central Movements Of The Middle Pillar Is The “fountain Of Light”. Here, The Practitioner Imagines A Brilliant Force Of Energy Forcing Its Way Up Through The Soles Of Their Feet And Out The Top Of Their Head, Spraying Along The Edges Of Their Aura, Making It Strong And Clear Of Any Roughness, And Gathering Again At Their Feet. This Cyclic Imagery Is Repeated Several Times. This Key Part Of The Exercise, Is The Central Part That Prepares The Central Pathways For The Eventual Release Of The Secret Fire. It Is Also Similar To Eastern Practices As Seen In Chinese Chi Kung, Indian Tantra, And Tibetan Vajrayana Yoga.

This Being Said, It Is Also Clear That Some Differences Exist Between Eastern And Western Methods Of Releasing The Secret Fire. The Methods Of Direct Work On The Psychic Centers, And An Upward Climbing Of The Spinal Column Is More Traumatic Than The More General Work Of The Middle Pillar. It Is For This Reason, That The Techniques Of Yoga, Save A Few, That Are Aimed Straight Away At Releasing The Secret Fire, Require Supervision Of A Guru. Being That They So Restrict The Activities Of The Practitioner, And Require Close Supervision, They Are Also Systems That Are Impractical For Day To Day Life In American And European Culture.

While Similarities Exist, And Will Be Examined, The Major Differences Appear To Be The Following:

1) Indian Yoga Is Aimed Principally At Liberation From The Physical Realm In As Quick A Method As Possible. Western Esoteric Practices Are Aimed At The Perfection Of Matter And The Psyche Within The Material World, And Not An Abandonment Of It.

2) Chinese Yoga, Or Chi Kung, Is More Akin To Western Practices, In That It Is Aimed At Perfection Of The Material World, And Even The Spiritualizing Of The Body Into A “body Of Light”. It However, Is More Akin To Indian Yoga, In That It Starts At Level Of The Etheric Body (Nadis Or Acupuncture Points) And Proceeds From There. This “from The Bottom Up, And Inside Out” Approach Is Different From The Middle Pillars “top Down, Outside In” Method. Because The Etheric Body Is Directly Effected Early On, The Effects Are More Dramatic, As Well As Potentially Traumatic For The Unprepared. In The Middle Pillar, The Etheric Body Is Often The Last Thing Effected. This Is Because The Symbolism Used, As Well As The Need To Develop Skills In Concentration, Visualization, And Meditation Effect Primarily The Mental Outlook Of The Practitioner For A Long Period Of Time. Only After Considerable Practice, Of A Year Or More, On A Daily Basis, Do The Effects Of The Middle Pillar Begin To Sink Into The Astral Body, And Eventually Filter Into The Etheric And Physical Bodies Of The Practitioner.

It Is Stated In One Source, That It Takes A Minimum Of Three Years For Even The Most Advanced Yoga Practitioner To Release The Kundalini Through Special Exercises. A ‘release’ Which We Have Stated, Is Not A Release Per Say, But The Removal Of Obstacles To Its Natural Expression. This Is A Critical Point, Since It Is Often Said That To Experience Kundalini Will Often Take Twenty Years Of Practice Of Esoteric Exercises, Or Even Hatha Yoga, The Same Amount Of Time It Took Nicholas Flamel To Confect The Philosopher’s Stone. During A Recent Workshop, Jean Dubuis Stated That It May Be Possible To Complete The Flamel Method In Three Years. It May Be That For The Alchemist, The Interior Creation Of The Philosopher’s Stone Is Nothing Short Of The Kundalini Experience, And The Exterior Creation Of The Stone Is The Ability To Direct This Cosmic Creative Energy At Will.

With The Initiations Of Energy Enhancement Utilising A Much Better Map, This Time Is Compressed So We Can Have The Same Effects In Just A Few Weeks On The Energy Enhancement Live Courses.

3) Tibetan Systems Run Somewhere Between The Chinese And Indian, In That They Are Concerned With Liberation, But Also With The Creation Of An Etherial Body Made From Their Bodily Essences. This Diamond Body, Or Rainbow Body, Is Pure Light And Can Materialize At The Will Of The Adept. Like The Chinese And Indian Systems, The Tibetan Use A Rituals For The Purification Of The Mind And Emotions Of The Practitioners, As Well As The Visual Images In Both Anthropomorphic Deities And Abstract Geometric Forms. The Rituals Of The Pentagram And Hexagram Fulfill This Function When Performing The Middle Pillar.

Thus, We Can See, The Major Differences In Eastern And Western Practices Can Be Summarized In Function And Reference Point Of Origin. The East Seeks Liberation Through Progressive Untying Of The Knots Of Ignorance – Energy Blockages – That Bind Humanity To Incarnation. The West Seeks To Perfect The Material World Making Material Reality A Reflection Of A Purified Spiritual Reality – As Within, So Without!” – Hermes Trismegistus. One Accomplished, The Adept Can Then Proceed To Disincarnate At Will.
