The majority of spiritually religious awakened people are currently in a phase of spiritual puberty; looking for meaningful spiritual activities that do justice to our spiritual and intuitive qualities, but do they meet our original ideals and sincerely felt Vocation?
Desire for God, Soul Connection, ‘Unification with God’ and spiritual intimacy are intensely deep desires that we hardly understand ourselves and of which we initially do not know how to deal with them. We are entering an entirely new and unknown territory, for ourselves and for most people and society.
The astral field
Just like the subconscious mind, the immaterial astral ‘field’ is unknown territory for our perceiving consciousness. We are very expectant about our meaningful transcendental content, but we are usually not interested in what might be in our primordial psyche. Our presumptions about the astral field are often related to our inner Archetypes with religious or spiritual values or are a consequence of the meaning we have given to our intuitive perceptions.
The immaterial astral and the subconscious field of perception are interrelated and an inner mechanism keeps them in balance; we try to balance subconscious feelings of dependence and inferiority with the wish of our own spiritual superiority or that of a ‘higher power’; so we can ask ourselves why God does not intervene in terrible events, or prevents them.
The astral field as ‘the beyond’
The physical and the immaterial field, our body and radiance belong together and form a unity. The material and immaterial fields of all people form a unity with each other and in society; in the astral field we experience synchronicity and ESP (Extra Sensitive Perception). The different chakras of all people form seven different fields of energetic vibration in which there are mutual telepathic connections that we are not or hardly aware of. In this compound ‘unity’ we live, work with our inner Archetypes, and we trust in our instinctive intuitive feeling. In and with this energetic unity we work with holistic, esoteric and energetic healing techniques where we are in direct contact or at a short distance with each other and where it is always about restoring the energetic balance in the individual chakra system.
The different Archetypal fields are all subgroups that together form one large Archetypal field; this global Archetypal field forms the outer ‘shell’ of the astral field, the spiritual artificial ceiling in the ‘unity’ of humanity.
The transcendental field
The transcendental field is the universal unloaded ‘Field of Unity’; it has no other religious or spiritual significance than spiritual ‘Unity’. We are intuitively in contact with this field. This ‘contact’ can be compared with a lightning bolt, a flash of immediate insight and instant understanding.
All the spiritual presumptions that we have come from our spiritual and religious experiences in the astral field. Because of our predominantly ‘Yang’ oriented upbringing and peer pressure from our family, friends and colleagues or fellow students, there is a good chance that we project an original transcendental spiritual touch, that allowed us to experience a glimpse of unconditional love, spiritual freedom, and genuine brotherhood, on objectives in the astral field. Society and our presence and participation therein form a unity, but in the energetic sense the astral field is incompatible with the transcendental field. The astral field is indeed part of the transcendental field, but the transcendental field is not part of the astral field. In the astral field, the transcendental field can only exist in an ‘awakened’ heart, but we will in the first instance be tempted or tempt others to create a heaven in society.
As long as we seek our spiritual salvation in the outer world, settle for social connections and rely on what our spiritual status yields, we will not meet our deep desire for God.
How the pure awakened heart is abducted and infected.
An awakened heart or a deep spiritual experience can bring intense and overwhelming feelings of pure joy and spiritual meaning. A perfect Yin-Yang balance in the heart has led to a spiritual initiation, we have been touched by the transcendental field and for some time we can feel truly blessed. Inwardly, we now make a link between having strong good feelings and contact with another ‘reality.’ After a while, however, these feelings of spiritual uplifting fade and we no longer feel connected, intuitively however we certainly are; the spiritual touch is a transcendental initiation by means of a spark of Spiritual Fire, and the intense feelings are caused by a first spark of Kundalini energy, body-bound Spiritual Fire.
With the disappearance of those feelings our new emotional anchor point disappears from the heart and we can feel lost. We count on our memory and trust our feelings but no longer our intuition; we fall back on our so well-known inner Yang attitude by turning our focus outside again and responding to our feeling that we need to ‘do’ something. It is at this point that the pure awakened heart comes under the control of the personality, our ego takes the lead and decides whether, how and to what extent we devote ourselves to our spiritual development. It is also at this point that we are tempted to use inner Archetypes with a borrowed status in the astral field under the denominator, ‘if it does not help, it does not harm.’
Spiritual awakening is a complex ‘maturing and discovery process’ in which feeling (heart), thinking (head) and intuition play the leading roles; we prepare ourselves inwardly to align ourselves spiritually with the intuitive spiritual nourishment and guidance of the transcendental field. Nourishment to test the spiritual ‘truth content’ of the astral field and guidance to ‘guide’ us from the known astral field to the unknown transcendental field.
It is also a ‘delicate’ process in which we can learn to recognize the difference between feeling and intuition so that we can increasingly learn to trust our intuition. A pure intuition depends on the energetic balance in our chakras, any imbalance especially in the lower four chakras disturbs the reception. A meditative awareness in the here and now can help us test intuitive perceptions for their value and validity. After the transcendental Yin-Yang fusion, the heart center can also fall back to an astral feeling-imbalance, and the energetic astral jungle full of meaning can give the transcendental experience an astral label or fall into oblivion.
Even without retreating to a spiritual community or monastery, we can fully focus on our spiritual development and at the same time perform our activities in society, which we are still part of. Gradually our perception of feeling shifts from the heart to the sacral chakra our instinct, it is focused on living and surviving in the physical reality and can warn us of real life-threatening danger but can also help fine-tuning the energetic balance. Now we can fully devote ourselves to intuitive closeness with the transcendental field, ‘walking alongside God’ to become aware of the effects of the Archetypal barrier that still are standing in the way of a complete connection with and Surrender to the Soul.
