As Above, SO Below

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

As Above, SO Below:

The ‘As Above, So Below’ law that isrepparttar combination of micro and macrocosmic reality likely comes from Hermes Trismegistus, a Babylonian who became a Pharaoh of Egypt according torepparttar 135741 Arab Encyclopedia. Barrett is probably right about him being a legendary amalgam of people, but so what? This kind of semantic, pedantic, academic, squabbling just confusesrepparttar 135742 issue and people get torepparttar 135743 point where they take one side or another, rather than integrate and seerepparttar 135744 effect ofrepparttar 135745 power-mongers. Inrepparttar 135746 time of Shakespearerepparttar 135747 cosmogony relatingrepparttar 135748 alchemic Dictum of Hermes was known asrepparttar 135749 Harmony ofrepparttar 135750 Spheres. This Dictum is pictured onrepparttar 135751 back of Barrett’s book Secret Societies as taken from ‘Macoy’s Cyclopedia’ of things Masonic. But I cannot rehash all these things again, too much. I find many debunkers are agents of deceit like Barrett. I also wonder how Michel de Notredame’s book escaped being onrepparttar 135752 Inquisitional Codex untilrepparttar 135753 De Medici’s had lost their influence centuries after his Prophecies were printed. Hypnosis and Ritual, blackboards to balls:

There are many symbols and artistic creations that are able to contactrepparttar 135754 mind and set its archetypal memories or information systems in action. It is clear that animals have always foundrepparttar 135755 place where legs meet to be an enjoyable spot and it wasn’t all a learned response. We have a vestigial obsession or primal urge that accentuatesrepparttar 135756 importance of certain aesthetics which are part ofrepparttar 135757 archetypal knowledge. Millions of years of conditioning reinforcerepparttar 135758 lines and constructs of such things across a wide range of forms that become or became templates ofrepparttar 135759 energy flow. Which came first -repparttar 135760 form orrepparttar 135761 thought? On other occasions we seerepparttar 135762 mind is involved or affected into becoming hypnotized beyond relaxation. I suspectrepparttar 135763 mind or brain functioning is able to be affected by these symbols or suggestions which are difficult for people to consciously intercept throughrepparttar 135764 interface withrepparttar 135765 Thalami and their crystalline structure.

Boredom in classrooms can actually make students more receptive to implanted attitudes or acceptance ofrepparttar 135766 prevailing attitudes thatrepparttar 135767 paradigm re-inforces or ‘enforces’. In these mental states of semi or full hypnotic trance,repparttar 135768 mind becomes conditioned and almost thinksrepparttar 135769 programming came from ‘within’. Suggestopaedia is a technique developed by biophysicist Dr. Milan Ryzl that broadcasts overrepparttar 135770 barriers created by conscious processing. It could have great potential for good or bad application in education and learning. I can see how it might have something to do with meditation andrepparttar 135771 Thalami amplification to affect brain use. Inrepparttar 135772 short span of 15 minutes a person can have over 90% recall of a new language some two weeks later if I rememberrepparttar 135773 research as spoken about in 'Psychic Discoveries Behindrepparttar 135774 Iron Curtain'.

However, my first wife took a course in teaching using this method and from what I saw ofrepparttar 135775 course material they took awayrepparttar 135776 music and chair that put a person intorepparttar 135777 altered state before beginningrepparttar 135778 information. I suppose it is another example of co-opting good ideas and making it seem like they have been tried. What good this does is beyond me. It isn’t as if humanity would not be better off if people could learn and take pride in thinking, is it? The co-operative learning that emphasizes all learning styles from linear logical to spatial creative is being employed similarly although I hearrepparttar 135779 US has some teachers who are actually usingrepparttar 135780 full technique. Hypnotists I have read, actually sayrepparttar 135781 authoritative symbols like a blackboard can and do cause hypnosis.

Some ofrepparttar 135782 symbols on stelae and megalithic structures would have power as well asrepparttar 135783 sacred or worshipful intent that minds can generate through increased expectation and belief. Who has not ‘felt’repparttar 135784 presence of past souls or thought therefrom in an old home? This ambience of textural sponges which soak uprepparttar 135785 energy is in all matter and its lattices of molecules. It makesrepparttar 135786 stone become more powerful asrepparttar 135787 ‘energy wells’ that Dr. Robins speaks to are filled to capacity. Someday we may be able to access some of this knowledge or understandrepparttar 135788 process as a result ofrepparttar 135789 effort of solid state chemists or physicists with an open mind. The ancients had more than a million years of observing and relating and they often didn’t have someone to tell them it was this or ‘that’, they just knew or ‘felt’ and observed. The Information Age inundates us with even more information and some of us are unable to focus and processrepparttar 135790 resultant data overflow. Is this part of a standard operating procedure employed by social engineers today? It can be called ‘BS baffles brains’ orrepparttar 135791 ‘Big Lie’.

“The object of crystal gazing is, as has been said,repparttar 135792 induction of a kind of hypnotic state giving rise to hallucinations of a visionary nature,repparttar 135793 reflection of light inrepparttar 135794 crystal forming ‘points de repère’ for such hallucinations. The value of elaborate ceremonies and impressive rituals thus lies in their potency to affectrepparttar 135795 mind andrepparttar 135796 imagination ofrepparttar 135797 seer.

Written by Lynda Filer

Today we are looking at our Sun Signs a little more closely. Most of us knowrepparttar general characteristics of our Sun Sign, but by looking closely atrepparttar 122443 Elements, Qualities and Temperaments ofrepparttar 122444 different Sun Signs we gain a better understanding of them.

It must also be remembered that although your Sun Sign is a major part of your natal chart there are other planets in your natal chart that do also have a significant impact. It could be that although you have your Sun in Aires which is a Cardinal Fire sign with a Male Temperament, your chart on a whole could show a heavy tendency more towards Water signs with a Female Temperament. If this isrepparttar 122445 case you are going to exhibit more of these tendencies as a whole.

AIRES - Cardinal, Fire, Male

TAURUS - Fixed, Earth, Female

GEMINI - Mutual, Air, Male

CANCER - Cardinal, Water, Female

LEO - Fixed, Fire, Male

VIRGO - Mutable, Earth, Female

LIBRA - Cardinal, Air, Male

SCORPIO - Fixed, Water, Female

SAGITTARIUS - Mutable, Fire, Male

CAPRICORN - Cardinal, Earth, Female
