Time & going with the Flow

It seems in each moment we are reminded of time, whether it be by the clock or the body the physical world demands our linear attention. Presence eases this turmoil and honours the synchronicity of the moment in a more allowing fashion than the daily diary however, it cannot but go with the flow; time passes, moments are cherished but with all human ability so many more moments are missed. Having grown somewhat tired of this daily conundrum I am curious to explore and honour the gifts of time, as opposed to its constraints. Our unique heritage is our creativity, our ability to play with a concept and nurture it as it grows and transforms. Linear time on the surface denies this playful approach and asserts that what is past is past, the door is closed. However, this in itself flies contrary to the learning and growth process that is required by the expansive nature of evolution. Physical existence is a giant mirror that allows us to see both what we understand and what we need to understand. Time structures this process so that we can explore the mirror more fully and thankfully in bite size proportions. But what if we can access these points on the linear line of time, those moments where we perhaps missed the boat as they say or did not fully explore our potential as much as we may have liked?

Let us take time and the aging process and play with that for a moment. We often have an age that comes to mind for a variety of reasons. These could be due to a relationship, a situation, an opportunity or an emotion. Let us pick the age of 25. This is not an attempt to return to a previous age or to become that age. I would imagine it would be uncomfortable on many levels to bring a third dimensional physical structure into the fourth dimensional flow so let us merely connect with that age now.  Through the use of our creative imagination now we can see the whole structure of the body at 25. How much Light is there and where is it absent? As the Light levels reduce we are seeing patterns and points of energy that have become crystallised and perhaps more rigid than other areas. This implies a lack of flexibility in this area and therefore a lack of consciousness. Through the use of colour we can assist the bodily structure return to its natural state of flow. Consider the rainbow and choose a colour now to flood through this 25 year old bodily structure and watch as it pulses radiantly and gently throughout, clearing and cleansing and brightening. We can continue to play with these colours and watch as the bodily structure gains more and more Light. And finally, we can visualise the colour of iridescent pink and use this electrical energy to further flood the body with Light and clear the entire structure including the cells. We can once again look at the bodily structure at this age and see how the Light is held and where perhaps further work is needed. It is not necessary to clear it all nor is it necessary to understand what is being cleared. This is merely an exercise to access other points in time, past or future, and through conscious intention clear the blocks and raise the Light quotient. If there are still heavy patterns or blocks at this particular age then switch to an earlier age and work with the patterns before they have crystallised. In many cases choosing an earlier age allows for more flexibility within the energy structure.

It is equally interesting to use this method to explore possibilities or options from a particular age that were not explored in the physical. Merely choose an age, a situation, an emotion or an experience and use your creativity to explore it and play, play, play. If we consider how endemic the issue of worthiness is in our society at present we may explore this individually by choosing a moment in time where we felt either worthy or unworthy. Ironically it is often easier to work with the unworthiness, the inferiority or the shame. Using your creative imagination again find the moment of the emotion and fill in the scene: Where are you? Who is with you? What can you hear? What age are you? And now most importantly how are you feeling? Spend ‘time’ now unwrapping this moment and see what it brings you? Is it the first such moment? This is such an enormous socio-cultural issue that it often involves many, many moments where we learn again and again of our lacks. And so follow the thread and return to another moment and begin again. What was ‘learned’ in these moments of unworthiness have become embedded in the bodily structure but can be removed. Conscious Presence knows the precious value of each person but  must be invoked and welcomed into these moments. Flood the bodily structure with the perfect blueprint of Presence where only worthiness is recognised. Again this is often easier when a colour is attached and so choose a colour that resonates with the emotion or moment and allow it to gently flood your being, the environment and the entire scene of the  moment. As Shakespeare so wisely said through Hamlet, ‘There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so’. Once again, when we are ready, we can visualise the electric iridescent pink as it floods through the bodily structure, and the entire moment or emotion if we wish, and watch as the crystallised patterns and thoughtforms are dissolved.

Again it is not the age that is important but the pattern, emotion or moment. In essence, through changing our views of time we can interact with the many moments and reclaim any energy or aspect that we may have unknowingly lost or limited along the way. This process is not necessarily negative as the age that surfaces may be important merely as a symbol of creative opportunity or as a moment to clear fear patterns that this creative potential manifested. These moments can be used to find openings for our creative potential that we did not feel prepared for on the physical level. Each time we approach an age, whether real or imagined, we can take the opportunity to release these patterns and in a sense reclaim the creativity that lies within them. And as we engage in this process we heal moments that both restore our hearts power and allow us to find once again our unlimitedness. We can then be truly free to go with the flow.

I hope you found these ideas of interest.

With playful regard,

Suzanne

DK on Numbers & Form

To this centre we give the name Shamballa, the component letters of which are numerically:  S.H.A.M.B.A.L.L.A. or 1.8.1.4.2.1.3.3.1.  This word equals the number 24 which in its turn equals 6.  I would call your attention to the fact that the word has in it nine letters, and—as you know—nine is the number of initiation.  The goal of all the initiatory process is to admit mankind into realisation of and identification with the will or purpose of Deity.  The number 6 is the number of form or of manifestation, which is the agent or medium through which this realisation comes and by which the consciousness is unfolded so that it can become the foundation of the higher process which is instituted at the third initiation.  That initiation is closely related to the third major centre, Shamballa; it is the third, from the angle of man’s perception and understanding, but the first from the angle of Deity Itself.  Again, 6 being the number of the sixth ray, it is therefore the number of idealism and of that driving force which makes mankind move forward upon the path and in response to the vision and press upward towards the light.  It is in reality devotion to an unseen goal, ever on ahead, and an unswerving recognition of the objective.  Like all other divine qualities, it has its material counterpart, and that is why 666 is regarded as the number of the Beast or of materialism, the number of the dominance of the three worlds prior to the process of reorientation and the expression of developed idealism and purpose.  The third aspect expresses itself through pure materialism, and hence the three sixes.  In an ancient book on numbers the initiate is defined as “the one who has experienced and expressed 666 and found it naught; who has dropped the 6 and become the 66, and thus has found himself upon the WAY; later, again, he drops the 6 and becomes the perfected 6—form, the instrument and expression of spirit.”

The number 24 is of deep interest, expressing as it does the double 12—the greater and the lesser zodiac.  Just as the number 6 expresses space, so the number 24 expresses time, and is the key to the great cycle of manifestation.  It is the clue to all cyclic appearance or incarnation.  Its two figures define the method of evolution; 2 equals the quality of love-wisdom, working under the Law of Attraction and drawing man from one point of attainment to another; whilst 4 indicates the technique of conflict and the achieving of harmony through that conflict; 4 is also the number of the human hierarchy, and 2 is the number of the spiritual hierarchy.  Technically speaking, until the third initiation, the initiate is “occupied with the relationship of the 2 and the 4; these, when placed side by side, connote relation; and when placed the one above the other, the initiate passes from the 4 into the 2.”  Needless to say, there is much more to say anent these figures, but the above will suffice to show the satisfactory nature of esoteric numerology—not numerology as understood today.

I would have you note that the sounds which compose the word “Shamballa” are predominantly along the line of will or power or of first ray energy.  Of the nine letters, six are on the first ray line of force.  1.1.1.3.3.1.—spirit and matter, will and intelligence.  Two of them are along the second line of force, 4 and 2.  The number 8 inaugurates ever a new cycle, following after the number 7, which is that of a relative perfection.  It is the number of the Christ-consciousness; just as 7 is the number of man, 8 is the number of the Hierarchy, and 9 is the number of initiation or of Shamballa.  Forget not that, from the angle of the Hierarchy, the third initiation is regarded as the first major initiation.

These preliminary remarks are intended to convey much esoteric information to those who realise that number gives the clue to the form and purpose of the life which the form veils.  At the third major initiation, the third planetary initiation (which is in fact the first solar initiation), the liberated disciple for the first time—alone and unaided—invokes the highest spiritual centre on our planet, Shamballa.  This he does because, for the first time, consciously and with understanding, he registers the life aspect (which has brought his soul into action through the medium of form) and vibrates to the Monad.  That registration enables him to contact “the bright centre, lying far ahead,” to blend his individual will with the divine will, and to cooperate with the purpose aspect of manifestation.  He has learnt to function through form; he has become aware, as a soul, of the divine form in its many aspects and differentiations; he now starts off upon the way of the higher unfoldment, of which the first step is contact with Shamballa, involving the fusion of his self-will and his spiritual will with the Will of God.
