How Sex, Yoga, and Intimacy Combine

As an Intermediate to Advanced yoga practitioner, you’ll know yoga is not just about Asana poses.

The goal of yoga as expressed in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 200 CE (I’m paraphrasing) is:

To create divine union between mind, body and spirit, through awareness of ourselves as individualized beings intimately connected to the unified whole of existence.

And our intimate relationships have a LOT to do with it.

To set the scene, asana’s (body postures) is the 3rd of eight ‘limbs’ of yoga as taught by Patanjali. Namely:

1 Yama: Universal morality
2 Niyama: Personal observances
3 Asanas: Body postures
4 Pranayama: Breathing exercises, and control of prana (sex energy)
5 Pratyahara: Control of the senses
6 Dharana: Concentration and cultivating inner perceptual awareness
7 Dhyana: Devotion, Meditation on the Divine
8 Samadhi: Union with the Divine

I’m ‘going out on a limb’ by doing this, and it’s not meant as narrow-minded westernized dogma… so with humility, here are a few ideas on how the 8 limbs of Yoga correspond with nurturing authentic intimacy in relationships.

(These concepts align with my work on intimacy in my live workshops, one-to-one coaching and online course The Intimacy Code.)

 

Introduction To The 8 Yoga Sutras For Intimate Conscious Relationship

Yama: Universal morality

In relationship, this involves mutual compassion for each other’s journey of inner truth and connection with our spiritual self.

Striving for complete authenticity of our own character and behavior, along with striving for total empathy for our partner — giving them space to grow and explore their journey, with a commitment to behave in a way that best serves the highest purpose of both partners.

A selfless compassion for your partner.

Niyama: Personal observances

In relationship, the niyamas relate to maintaining conscientious healthy boundaries for your own sanctity and self-ownership, to ensure you have the right personal space to be true to yourself regardless of the relationship with a partner.

This includes the self-responsibilities for cleanliness, good health and fitness, mental attitude and emotional mood, personal power, integrity and effort towards achieving your successes, and developing internal mindfulness to know yourself more fully.

It also includes the recognition of yourself as part of a broader experience and connection with existence beyond the boundaries and limitations of an interpersonal romantic loving relationship.

A selfish focus on your personal experience.

Asanas: Body postures

Asana is the practice of physical postures or ‘positions’. It is the most commonly known aspect of yoga. Patanjali describes the Asana’s this way:

“This down-to-earth, flesh-and-bones practice is simply one of the most direct and expedient ways to meet yourself. … This limb of yoga practice reattaches us to our body. In reattaching ourselves to our bodies we reattach ourselves to the responsibility of living a life guided by the undeniable wisdom of our body.”

In terms of relationship this includes three elements:

1. Chi energy cultivation. Literally circulating the flow of chi energy through the body while holding your Asana poses and listening to the messages of wisdom that your body provides.

2. Couples Yoga. Working with a partner on Yoga positions rather than alone.

3. What has come to be known as ‘Tantric Sex’. Think ‘kama sutra’ positions. And yes, there were a few of those books in my Dad’s collection too (as per part 1). Here the focus is not just on ‘sex positions’, it’s the use of sex to engage emotional closeness as well as personal discovery and fulfillment through that shared heightened experience. Many of the physically challenging sexual positions of Tantric lovemaking are actually yoga postures used for personal awakening.

Pranayama: Breathing technique for control of prana

Breath work alone is not just about mindfulness meditation. Some yoga traditions and all of the Taoists taught how breath can be used to circulate chi (life force / sex energy) throughout the body.

Through intimate relationship, this involves circulating chi (sex energy) through breath during love making. Breath control can help delay or heighten the onset of orgasm. Breath work during sex also helps the partners synchronize and harmonize their emotions by tuning in to each other’s sensory experience.

Pratyahara:  Control of the senses

Affection is a vital cornerstone of loving relationship. Yet, over-indulgence or neediness for constant physical contact can end up pushing a partner away. Or it can lead to an emotional dependence on the physical aspects of relationship which inhibits the broader psychological and spiritual aspects.

An easy way for a woman to understand ‘control of the senses’ is in her preference for the man to take his time with lovemaking, rather than ‘racing to the finish line’.

In a similar way, men appreciate a woman’s sensitivity to give space rather than becoming ‘clingy’. Men like to spend time in their ‘man cave’ or den.

Pratyahara (control of the senses) in relationship is both about contributing sufficient affection and practical support to the partner, as well as knowing when to withdraw, hold back, and not over-indulge.

Dharana: Cultivating Self-Awareness

Extending beyond pratyahara, dharana means ‘immovable concentration of the mind’.

In terms of relationship, this involves being present and mindful in our connection with, and separateness from, our partner.

Giving Space

In my coaching, women have sometimes expressed their keen desire, almost an emotional need, for their man to be constantly demonstrating that she is ‘on his mind’.

Dharana advises that both partners allow each other to have mental, emotional and physical time apart form each other, allowing organic and holistic growth to occur for both of you separately, and in the relationship.

Being Present

A powerful phrase about presence is ‘wherever you are, be there’, reminding us to focus our awareness on the reality of our circumstances and fully appreciate and experience what is available to us in each moment.

This always implies that we should let go of any lingering longing for that which is not in our presence, including our partner, so we are not inhibited from pursuing our many responsibilities and aspirations.

This means giving each other genuine space to ‘breathe’, to concentrate, to focus, to clarify.

Offering Empathy

It also means concentrating and clarifying the contribution of the relationship to both partners. To fully focus on giving your best self to your partner. And making space for them to do the same for you. This is the immoveable concentration of relationship. To nurture both partners through times of separateness and times of fully present togetherness.

Dhyana: Devotion, Meditation on the Divine

Dhyana means worship. In relationship this is about appreciating the divine within the male/female relationship: the convergence of masculine/feminine energies with a resultant mix of strengths, weaknesses, roles and playful games that you each take on, and offer to each other.

Dhyana in relationship has several focal points:

Worship of the partners energy.

If you are the feminine partner, how can you fully admire, appreciate, bask in, and be absorbed by the strong masculine contribution of your partner?

Worship of your own energy.

If you are the feminine partner, how can you fully admire, appreciate, bask in, and be absorbed by the expressive feminine movement of your inner abundance?

Worship of your combined unity.

What clues can you find that illuminate the ‘other worldly’ experiences of deep, abiding, authentic intimacy that pervades a loving harmonious relationship?

Samadhi: Union with the Divine

Union with the divine in relationship means the cessation of conflict and the transcendent ecstasy of absolute emotional closeness achieved in the fleeting moments of shared orgasmic experience — and the emotional closeness that is created through authentic intimacy.

The spirituality of sex is, unfortunately, a hidden area of knowledge in most spiritual doctrines. For example:

“The Kabbalah teaches that … man can achieve total union with God only through sexual intercourse. This is one of the most zealously guarded secrets of the Kabbalah. Because God is made of two principles, male and female, and because they are forever united in perfect harmony, man must also endeavor to achieve perfect harmony in sex with a woman, one woman. According to Kabbalah a man or a woman who has never joined in sex with a member of the opposite sex can never come in contact with God.” – The Complete Book of Spells, Ceremonies, and Magic, Migene González-Wippler

And the sexual component of Indian Tantra is often neglected, forgotten or suprressed. (See Kiss of the Yogini)

The only path I know that still openly shares the spirituality of sex is Taoism.

The Tao (The Way) advocates a simple, natural, healthy and happy approach to life. Where our sensuality guides us to holistic integration of self with existence.

To paraphrase the earlier paragraph:

the most complete sense of union or mergence with existence occurs in the loss of conscious identity during moments of orgasmic ecstasy with full release of inhibition and fear, in a momentary, fleeting state of unconditional love and oneness

This is the goal of Yoga in terms of romantic loving relationship as I see it.

Sex, Tantra and Enlightenment

Note: This is more of a research page rather than finished article. These notes were started in 2011 and continue through to 2016.

Have you ever experienced energetic waves streaming up your spine, washing over your head, and tingling through your hands?

In my early years it happened often, whenever I felt a strong sense of wonder… insight… or eroticism. Reading philosophy, psychology or literature could trigger a cascade of tingling energy that would rush up my back and over my head down my arms.

The sensation is that of a mix between goose bumps, sexual tingles, a rolling peaceful massage, and putting your fingers in an electric socket.

I assume you know the kind of overall experience I mean.

Well, little did I realize at the time that I was tapping in to the movement of Chi energy, otherwise known as Prana (Sanskrit for ‘vital life’) or ‘life force’ energy as taught in ancient spiritual heritage from Kundalini Yoga to Hermetic Kabbalah.

“All of the ancient spiritual traditions have a Tantric component.” – Weiser Field Guide To Ascension: The Meaning of Miracles and Shifts in Consciousness Past and Present – Cal Garrison

“The Kabbalah teaches that … man can achieve total union with God only through sexual intercourse. This is one of the most zealously guarded secrets of the Kabbalah. Because God is made of two principles, male and female, and because they are forever united in perfect harmony, man must also endeavour to achieve perfect harmony in sex with a woman, one woman. According to Kabbalah a man or a woman who has never joined in sex with a member of the opposite sex can never come in contact with God.” – The Complete Book of Spells, Ceremonies, and Magic, Migene González-Wippler

Sex Energy Cultivation

I didn’t relate my sensations of electrical waves with the eastern philosophies of chi energy cultivation until I started the practices of tantric energy cultivation taught by Taoist Master Mantak Chia during my mid-20s.

His teachings encouraged me to dedicate myself to the disciplines and practice of literally circulating the life force energy up my spine and around my head, and down the front of my body (in what is called the micro-cosmic orbit).

It doesn’t take much practice to create clear proof of a real effect.

For men, it begins in the balls. (Of course, right?)

In just a very short time I found results, unlike a lot of other meditation practices I did in the past.

As Chia says:

“People want to connect to the heaven but they forget about the Earth. If you don’t have the positive and the negative live wiring, you don’t get electricity. You need to connect with both.”

Ankhing (Egyptian Orgasm)

Other references to the same general experience is found in commentary on ancient Egypt.

Ancient Egyptians supposedly believed in knowing all ‘sixty-four sexual modes’ as requisite to entering the King’s Chamber to ascend to the next level of consciousness.

“The ankh is the template for the channel that carries the orgasm up the spine and allows us to move that energy back into the body” – Cal Garrison

Drunvalo explains in ‘ancient Egyptian sexual ankhing‘

Ancient Egyptians believed that the entire Mer-Ka-Ba or ‘lightbody’ (the field of energy surrounding and interpenetrating the body) benefits from the sexual release of orgasm.

Wilhelm Reich on Orgone Sex Energy

As recently as the 1950s, Reich experimented with bio-electricity demonstrate that human emotion, sexual excitation and orgastic discharge are measurable phenomena.

He believed that full sexual awareness would mean the end of superstition and suppressive belief systems.

“Full sexual consciousness and a natural regulation of sexual life mean the end of mystical feelings of any kind. In other words, natural sexuality is the deadly enemy of mystical religion. The church, by making the fight over sexuality the center of its dogmas and of its influence over the masses, confirms this concept.” – Wilhelm Reich

On Wilhelm Reich’s idea of Orgone Sex Energy:

“His idea was that the orgasm was not simply a device to aid recreation, but was the body’s emotional energy regulator. The better the orgasm, the more energy was released, meaning that less was available to create neurotic states. Reich called the ability to release sufficient energy during orgasm “orgastic potency,” something that very few individuals could achieve, he argued, because of society’s sexual oppression.”

Napoleon Hill on Sex Energy Transmutation

And in the very early 1900s, Napoleon Hill wrote on The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

“The desire for sexual expression is by far the strongest and most impelling of all the human emotions, and for this very reason this desire, when harnessed and transmuted into action, other than that of physical expression, may raise one to the status of a genius.

One of America’s most able business men frankly admitted that his attractive secretary was responsible for most of the plans he created. He admitted that her presence lifted him to heights of creative imagination, such as he could experience under no other stimulus..” – Napoleon Hill

Chakras & New-Age Spirituality

The eastern Chakra systems of the body have been identified as nodes in the human body where vortexes of subtle energy from higher dimensions interfere with the physical body.

Most of so called new-age spirituality that’s flung about on the net is extremely unbalanced and will do nothing more than fool you into thinking you’re progressing while actually wasting your precious time and leading you down dead ends.

The crown chakra is not ‘beyond’ or ‘above’ the body in terms of importance.  The root and sacral chakras are just as much related to higher spirituality as the crown chakra. Be careful about who you listen to.

Tantric Breathing Exercise

The first exercise I learned from Chia goes something like this:

Sit with loose pants on the edge of a chair. While breathing in, focus the mind on a sensation of inflowing energy into the scrotum. Each inhalation draws more energy into that area and it begins to rise. Within a short space of time I felt a very cold energy collecting there, and I could then gradually draw it up into the lower spinal area.

Since then I have endeavoured to ‘cultivate’ this chi energy, by circulating up the spine, around the head, and down my front, collecting it in my navel area.

Chi energy draws from the intent of the mind (crown chakra) through the lower chakras of the body and circulates it for health, vitality and pleasure throughout the body.

The process is similar for men and women and explained in great detail in Chia’s books. I read most of them and think these are the best to start with:

But don’t just read about it, for Tantra and Tao are bodily experiences. Doooo the exercises. Give them time and space. You’ll likely start feeling physical effects within days depending on your current level of chi connection.

Dogma and Tantra [debate about what Tantra means]

Tantra teacher Sheea (pictured above) shared this message:

I love empowering young men with Tantra! Makes them a better lover 4 Life!

Sean replied saying:

Tantra is about using sexual energy for higher pursuits such as enlightenment…not about fucking or full-body orgasms. At least call what you do “American Tantra”.

Here’s how the debate between myself and Sean went down:

Gav

Sean, what you describe sounds more like indian tantra. Taoist tantra is very much about sexual pleasure too. And being better lovers, having better relationships with our partners, is enlightenment

Sean

We probably have different definitions of ‘Tantra’ and ‘enlightenment’. To say “Indian Tantra” is like saying a “German Shepard dog”. You can make curry in America and call it Indian curry, but that doesn’t make it so.

In the last couple decades or so, in the west, the word Tantra has become a blanket term to describe anything dealing with sex and psychology, self improvement, mysticism or spirituality. The New Age likes to take that which is sacred to Hindus, redefine it, make it marketable and claim it as their own.

And while Toaist Tantra may concentrate on various sexual techniques, pleasure and such; it’s goal still transcends the physical. Tantra and its teachings actually refer to Yogic techniques expounded by Indian/Hindu Yogis, sages, scholars and pundits from the middle ages. I have no problem with sex or Toaism. There both great. I’m just a purist I guess.

Gav

The goal of taoist tantra does not ‘transcend’ the physical. The physical is an inherent aspect of Taoist philosophy.

Gav

And criticizing the use of a word for the sake of being historically/traditionally accurate is more dogmatic than purist.

Sean Really?

Gav
I totally agree with the sentiment of superficiality in new-age culture though.

Gav

I suggest what’s required is a fusion of sense (physical/current/modern experience) and sensibility (depth of insight/etymology/history/context)

Sean

Being a practicing Hindu for 30 years now, I like to keep some integrity to things like Tantra and Yoga…but you can make up whatever definition you like…but in doing so, it is you who are being dogmatic. I will take notice of what Tantra has become in the west during the last decade if you take notice of what it’s been and how it has evolved in India over the last three centuries. Deal?

Gav

Sean, ‘integrity’ via your own personal experience of history. I suggest you learn not to accuse people of lacking integrity just because they use alternate word meanings as you.

Sean

My own personal experience with history? Really? Can you tell me about India’s history? About the history of Tantra? Hinduism?

Sean

Actually, you seem smart but what do you know about such things? You’ve a read a few books and been to a workshop or whatever…and now your an expert?

Gav

No I can’t. It’s not in my personal experience. What is, is the approach of Tantra as per Taoism. And Taoism recognizes pleasure and physicality as core to spirituality. Apparently unlike Indian Tantra (as per the limited personal experience I’ve had with it). And the comparison given in various books of right and left tantra.

Gav

I practice Taoist Tantra as per Master Mantak Chia. I’m not an expert on Tantra.

Sean

Do you have orgasms?

Sean

Whatever, I was studying/practicing Toaist Tantra and the Toa Te Ching before you were born. Why don’t you take your condescending arrogance and shove it up you ass…see if that brings you pleasure and enlightenment…which are one in the same according to you. I doubt you even know what the word ‘Tantra’ means. Cheers.

Hmm, nice guy. His Facebook profile shows him as ‘Ayurvedic consultant & teacher of Vedantic meditation’. With a job title like that I would have expected him to be a little more tolerant etc. You might be able to find the Facebook comment thread here.

Tantra, Chi Energy, Sex and the Tao (in London UK)

Have you ever experienced energetic waves streaming up your spine, washing over your head, and tingling through your hands?

In my early years, it happened often, whenever I felt a strong sense of wonder… insight… or eroticism.

The sensation is that of a mix between goose bumps, sexual tingles, a rolling peaceful massage, and putting your fingers in an electric socket.

I assume you know the kind of overall experience I mean.

Well, little did I realise until recently that what I was tapping in to, was the movement of Chi energy, otherwise known as Prana (Sanskrit for ‘vital life’) or ‘life force’ energy.

And I have always been somewhat interested in things like the Kama Sutra, or Kundalini Yoga, or Tantric Sex, but until the actual physical evidence, it just seems like fanciful artistic excuse for yogic meditation or sexual foreplay.

Nothing necessarily wrong with either, but there’s something more going on here…

I never connected the dots between my experience and the eastern philosophies of chi energy cultivation, until I started to practice according to the teachings of Mantak Chia.

Mantak Chia: Tantric Cultivation for Pleasure and Health

I consider Mantak Chia to be one of my real teachers, as his books actually encouraged me enough to dedicate myself to practice, of literally circulating the life force energy up my spine and around my head, and own the front of my body (in what is called the Micro cosmic orbit).

It doesn’t take much practice to create clear proof of a real effect.

For men, it begins in the balls. (Of course, right?)

Tantric Breathing Exercise

The first exercise I learned from Mantak Chia is something like this:

Sit with loose pants on the edge of a chair. While breathing in, focus the mind on a sensation of inflowing energy into the scrotum. Each inhalation draws more energy into that area and it begins to rise. Within a short space of time I felt a very cold energy collecting there, and I could then gradually draw it up into the lower spinal area.

Chi energy draws from the intent of the mind (crown chakra) through the lower chakras of the body and circulates it for health, vitality and pleasure throughout the body.

The process is similar for women and explained in great detail by the master of Tantra and Taosim, Mantak Chia. His books are highly recommended, including:

But don’t just read about it, for Tantra and Tao are bodily experiences.

Note: The crown chakra is not ‘beyond’ or ‘above’ the body in terms of importance.  The root and sacral chakras are just as much related to higher spirituality as the crown chakra. Be careful about who you listen to. Most of so called new-age spirituality that’s flung about on the net is extremely unbalanced and will do nothing more than fool you into thinking you’re progressing while actually wasting your precious time and leading you down dead ends.

As Mantak says in the video interview I’ve posted below:

“People want to connect to the heaven but they forget about the Earth. If you don’t have the positive and the negative live wiring, you don’t get electricity. You need to connect with both.”

Another teacher I recommend very much for learning Tantra and Tao is David Deida.

David Deida: Enlightened Sexuality

In the video playlist below you’ll find the start of his lecture series freely available on YouTube.  I highly recommend his audio program called Enlightened Sex which clarifies the dynamic of masculine and feminine energies to help understand the differences between men and women in relationships and thus how to better relate and communicate. And also his excellent book Way of the Superior Man.

Practicing the Tao in London UK

I’m currently living in London UK so I’m getting involved with the Tao and Tantra communities here. Mantak Chia has a centre in London at www.healing-tao.co.uk which is managed by Kris Deva North (also a brilliant Tantra and Taoist teacher). There are various groups on meetup.com. And others such as Tara Yoga Centre. Let me know if you’re in London and interested in getting involved.

Ankhing (Egyptian Orgasm)

“The ankh is the template for the channel that carries the orgasm up the spine and allows us to move that energy back into the body” – Cal Garrison

Drunvalo explains it well in ‘ancient Egyptian sexual ankhing

Ancient Egyptians believed that the entire Mer-Ka-Ba (see bottom of the previous page: Universal Electric Body) or ‘lightbody’ (the field of energy surrounding and interpenetrating the body) benefits from the sexual release of orgasm.

The eastern Chakra systems of the body have been identified as nodes in the human body where vortexes of subtle energy from higher dimensions interfere with the physical body.

Also consider (following this post on the 6th Movement of Productivity) the insights of Napoleon Hill on The Mystery of Sex Transmutation (as reminded to me by my friend and qualified motivational coach Marcos Mendosa)…

“The desire for sexual expression is by far the strongest and most impelling of all the human emotions, and for this very reason this desire, when harnessed and transmuted into action, other than that of physical expression, may raise one to the status of a genius.

– Napoleon Hill

And the incredible and highly recommended writings of David Deida:

Your life feels smaller than you know it could be. Why? Part of the reason is your fear of unashamed pleasure. This fear curtails your whole-bodied flow of life’s force that you can enjoy all by yourself.

…Either you have no limits whatsoever to the pleasure you allow your body to flow with, or you are harbouring fear. Pleasure is energy. And energy is the movement of love.

Sex Energy Cultivation

I have been practicing the chi energy cultivation exercises found in Mantak Chia’s books and impressed by the physiological experience as well as the psychological effects. I can see there is lots more to progress with, but in just a very short time I have found results, unlike a lot of other meditation practices.

More to… come.

The Universal Electric Body – Energy of Creation

  • The Universe is Mental said Hermes.
  • Everything is Material said Guirdjieff.
  • All is Energy say Esoteric New Agists.

What does it ‘matter’?

Let’s consider the Electricity in our body for health, consciousness and connection.

Sacred Geometry

Over the door of his school Plato wrote, “Do not enter unless you know geometry.”

Pure geometric patterns identified by the modern genius Buckminster Fuller.

Buckminster Fuller and then Hans Jenny (in a science called ’Cymatics’) shows the connection between energy vibration and geometry by producing shapes out of sound frequencies.

Geometry of Shapes with Mass is really about Vibration of Energy. The Egyptians called matter frozen music.

Everything is based on a specific pattern; knowing that pattern unlocks the ability to make full practical use of it.

In recent times, the term we use to describe these core spiritual, energetic, and physical blueprint patterns is Sacred Geometry.

Thanks to people like Robert Lawlor, Bruce Rawles and Drunvalo Melchizedek, the art of sacred geometry is now being restored.

Vesica Pisces and Light

2 spheres intersect as per the creation story of the House of Thorus. (Note: On the 2nd day of Biblical creation story God created light.)

vesica-pisces

 

Buckminster Fuller posited the geometry of the photon must be two tetrahedrons joined at a common face (the Vesica Pisces).

The tetrahedron is also the hidden geometry in the electromagnetic wave (wave form of light) itself.

The Phi spiral is constructed from a series of harmonics with wavelengths that comply with the Golden Mean version of the Fibonacci sequence:

 

The Genesis Pattern

Derived from the Vesica Pisces, with a new sphere added for each of the 7 days of creation.

 

What we see here is a two dimensional representation of what are actually three-dimensional spheres.

The star of David in this picture is actually a three-dimensional star tetrahedron or interlaced tetrahedron. (See Mer-Ka-Ba below).

Extend this out one layer further (beyond the double boundaries set by the ancient Egyptian symbol and then draw straight lines over that and we get the Cube of Metatron.

 

Philosopher Plato described (in Taemeus) these forms that we find in the Cube of Metatron 400 years BC, hence they are called the 5 Platonic solids.

He equated the tetrahedron with the element fire, the cube with the earth, the icosahedron with water, the octahedron with air and the dodecahedron with the aether.

Dodecahedron was aether (or prana / tacheon energy). The sphere is voidness. In the Pythagorean school if you mentioned Dodecahedron out of the school they would kill you on the spot.

The Platonic solids are believed to be the geometrical internal structures of the atom. The Platonic Solids can be nested (they fit into each other). This nesting creates the electron shells of the atom.

 

Dodecahedron and Isohedron are relational parameters of DNA, the blueprint of life. The basic geometry of DNA is that of a dodecahedron.

The Dodecahedron is on the outer edge of your energy field as the highest form of consciousness.

1980’s Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrates the entire Periodic Table of Elements — literally everything in the physical world — is based on these same five forms.

Stones carvings from Neolithic Britain a thousand years before Plato also show the same ‘5 Platonic Shapes’.

A sphere represents the 6th and final ‘element’; the void.

Video: The Ancient Secret Of The Flower Of Life – Drunvalo Melchizedek

In Ancient Times, the Initiates of this great knowledge were called THE MASTERS OF THE NET.

Watch for where Stan Tenen shows the bible code ‘In the Net’ rather than the normal version ‘In the Beginning’

Shape is really a pattern of energy movement frozen in space

Legends of ancient high cultures such as the Egyptian Temple Science indicate how advanced — and how secret — this information was in earlier times.

Islam actually contains within it many classical secrets from the Middle Eastern traditions, especially Ancient Egypt.

The Egyptian priesthood knew that the Grid of 19 was in reality the background of the human archetypal energy blueprint.

The Egyptians had two mystery-schools; one was called the left eye of Horus. This school taught the female principles of creation, about love and compassion. The other school was called the right eye of Horus and taught the intelligent male principles of creation; sacred geometry was a main subject.

Freemasonry

The Freemasonry symbol is a carpenter’s square and a pair of compasses, the two only instruments needed in sacred geometry.

Steiner and Rosicrucians

The true Rosicrucians have been caretakers and researchers of this ancient knowledge within modern Europe. The most advanced teachings from this tradition can be found in the over 350 volumes of books and collected lectures by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861 — 1925)

Steiner as a Rosicrucian knew that we are living in a time when the Mysteries need to be made public, as a natural step in human spiritual evolution.

Science and Technology

There exists a thriving sub-culture of advanced scientists studying pure structural patterns as a key to everything from Nuclear Physics to Human Biology – Robert J. Gilbert, Ph.D

“A modern master of this energy science has emerged who can and does use all of these qualities to create powerful effects at will. Architect Dr. Ibrahim Karim of Cairo has developed an entire holistic science of energy quality which he has trademarked under the name of BioGeometry”

From Egypt to Israel and Greece

When the Egyptian high spiritual culture began to decline with foreign invasions, its knowledge went in two prominent directions: to the Jewish culture in Israel, and into the Greek tradition.

Language

“Hebrew, and almost certainly Greek and Arabic letters and the meaning selected to be characterised by the letters were picked in a formal way to produce a complete system”. – Stan Tenen

Hebrew

Hi-bu-ru

The Hebrew word for letter actually means “pulse or vibration,” indicating a flow of energy
http://www.melchizedekacademy.com/qabbalahunv.htm

Greece

Pythagoras discovered a wonderful mathematical relation between the harmonic notes in music.

Not only does the Fibonacci sequence define the ratios of harmonics in sound but also in the electromagnetic spectrum of light, it defines the 7 colours of the rainbow!

Music and colour have the same harmonic ratios.

The Torus

The torus is the first shape that comes out of a completed genesis pattern. It is the result of rotating the Genesis pattern 360 degrees around the center.

The mechanics of the Torus are the primary movements of all electromagnetic fields.

In 1895 Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant explained the internal structure of Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen using a torus shape they called ‘Anu’…

 

…as the basic building blocks of the atom and mentioned that the atom is shaped from the aether using the Anu as a flow form.

Contemporary Physicist Daniel Winter supports this idea and posits vortexes, little eddies or tornados in the fluid-like aether are the basic building blocks of matter.

The human heart has an electromagnetic field in the form of a doughnut toroidial field (perfect torus).

Tree of Life

Tree of Life overlaid by the Genesis symbol. Ancient traditions thought that these geometrical patterns were very important and preserved them in mystical esoteric sciences (and Bible stories: Garden of Eden)

 

The Tree of Life has THREE horizontal lines, SEVEN vertical lines, and TWELVE diagonal lines. Within these sacred geometric patterns there are deep secrets of the spiritual construction — and potential healing — of every human being.

Sepher Yetzirah (“The Book of Formation”) emphasizes that the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet break up into three sets:

3 “Mother Letters”
7 “Double Letters” and
12 “Elemental Letters”

Stan Tenen identifies the Tree of Life forms out of the 2 alternatively 7-coloured Toroid shapes.

This video gives an excellent overview of many points covered so far and makes some fascinating observations:

Mer Ka Ba

Supposedly the energy structure of the human aura contains the wave interference patterns of the Platonic Solids especially the star-tetrahedron.

The energy body in ancient Egypt was called the Merkaba. (Mer=rotating light, Ka=spirit, Ba=human body).

Ancient Egyptians believed that the entire Mer-Ka-Ba or lightbody (the field of energy surrounding and interpenetrating the body) benefits from the sexual release of orgasm.

….Merkaba is perceived as going into a balanced male/female field of counter rotating Light which contains the Higher Spiritual Self and it’s connection to the Archtypical or Neter, plus the soul or astral body …..and then, combining the energies into a transdimensional vehicle for Ascending the duality (3D).. Mer is the Light that is created in the primal cause and effect, and is used in the Merkaba, creating the Light of Genisis,….the beginning of new consciousness and movement through the Portal.

In medieval Judaism, the beginning of the book of Ezekiel was regarded as the most mystical passage in the Bible, and its study was discouraged, except by mature individuals with an extensive grounding in the study of traditional Jewish texts.

Jewish biblical commentaries emphasize that the imagery of the Merkaba is not meant to be taken literally; rather the chariot and its accompanying angels are analogies for the various ways that God reveals Himself in this world.

The sages Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakkai (d. ca. 80 CE) and later, Rabbi Akiva (d. 135) were deeply involved in merkabah speculation. Rabbi Akiva and his contemporary Rabbi Ishmael ben Elisha are most often the protagonists of later merkabah ascent literature.

Chassidic philosophy explains that Merkaba is a multi-layered analogy that offers insight into the nature of man, the ecosystem, the world, and teaches us how to become better people.

Torsion Waves

Kozyrev discovered that human thoughts and feelings are generating torsion waves as well. He has been able to measure torsion waves that were caused by sudden human emotional changes. So what Kozyrev proved was that consciousness is related to aether vibrations.

Your religion (way of life) is your creativity, expression and fulfilment based on cultivating electromagnetic kundalini energy.

Matter is simply the focal point of a vibration in an energy sea called the aether.
