By | Spiritual Education

What is Spirit? “The human spirit never dies and drives an individual forward into some form of development –mental, emotional, intuitional, social and physical. All forward activity eventually leads to the Path of Evolution and Higher Consciousness. A spiritual person is one who is aware of, and fosters, the fire of eternal Spirit.” (Alice A. Bailey) And – according to two different dictionaries: Spirit is: – Intelligent or immaterial part of man, soul. b) Person viewed as having this, especially with reference to particular mental or moral qualities, c) rational or intelligent being not connected with material body, – disembodied…

ORPHIUCHUS – THE 13TH CONSTELLATION

By | Astrology

Could it be a sign? Many people have asked me about the 13th constellation Ophiuchus, the Serpent Holder, situated between Scorpius and Sagittarius.  It’s located opposite Orion and is depicted as a man grasping a serpent; the interposition of his body divides the snake constellation Serpens into two parts. In mythology Ophiuchus is associated with Asclepius, an ancient physician and healer. A sign is different to a constellation. A zodiacal sign occupies 30 degrees, or 1/12th of a circle (360 degrees). The zodiacal signs have their origin in the sixth century BC. Constellations vary in size and are a visual…

THE ASTROLOGICAL HOUSES

ONE LARGE CIRCLE OF LIGHT DIVIDED INTO TWELVE PORTIONS An astrology chart, (horoscope) symbolises the Circle of Life. Ancient cultures divided the circle into different areas of life in order to understand natural Laws.

It clearly describes specific personality characteristics that play a major role in defining the identity, or event, in…

The physical body is only as good as the thoughts that go into it. If we programme our mind to only have positive thoughts, not only about our body but also about everything else in life, our body will remain in a healthy state. The opposite is also true. A sick person harbours negative thoughts that may, or may not be conscious. All in the individual’s field of influence, including the environment, experiences this negative energy. Everything in our universe is energy vibrating at different speeds. Ill health is a ‘wake-up’ call to become acutely aware of the thoughts we…

I travelled to Tibet in 2006 and was delighted to be part of a medical class of approximately 120 students. The teacher spoke English. This memorable experience was not on the tourist agenda and happened by a seeming “accident”. I felt privileged to be there and it was the highlight of my Tibetan experience. Around the walls of the large teaching room were twelve prominent images of astrology charts. Each one depicted a sign of the zodiac represented by a Tibetan animal and the particular parts of the body each sign governs. The Tibetan astrological model is a circular one,…

Life – Birth and Re-birth

By | Esoteric Psychology

Biologists tell us that our body’s cells are constantly dying, and being replaced by new ones. This means we change our body regularly even though the changes are often imperceptible. Each of us has a number of “different” bodies in this life. The body of an adult is different from the body that same person had as an infant. Something similar happens at the time of death, when the physical body cannot be worked any more, the individual undergoes a change. The consciousness or soul/spirit within that body departs to create a life elsewhere. It doesn’t die. All souls incarnate…
