What Is a Master?

By George A. Boyd ©2023

Q: What is a spiritual Master? Is there more than one order of Mastery? How is spiritual Mastery different than other forms of mastery?

A: A spiritual Master is someone who has (a) completed his or her spiritual Path, (b) dwells in the Presence of the Divine, and (c) is Divinely anointed and empowered to teach, guide, initiate, and minister to those aspirants and disciples, whom he or she accepts as students.

In Mudrashram®, we recognize nine orders of spiritual Mastery:

  1. Adept – this is an individual who has united the Soul and the Monad, and can work with aspirants and disciples throughout the Subtle and Planetary Realm.
  2. Adept Master – this is an individual whose Monad has risen up to assume an Office in the Planetary Hierarchy; the Planetary Logos anoints him or her to minister to humanity and to work on an aspect of the Divine Plan.
  3. Transplanetary Adept – this is an individual has gained Mastery on one of the planets in our Solar Chain or on one of the planets in one of the seven other solar systems of our Monadic Life Wave. This enables this individual to minister to those Monads that ascend into that planetary life stream. The highest stage of Mastery at this level is an Initiate who has merged into the Pleiadean Logos, and can work with Monads on every planet and solar system in the Transplanetary Realm.
  4. Yogi Preceptor – this is an individual who has unfolded their cosmic consciousness nucleus of identity into the Presence of the Lord of the Yogis (Yogeshwar), and is empowered to awaken and unfold the cosmic consciousness nucleus of identity in others. These Initiates are established on one of nine platforms in the First Cosmic Initiation that color the type of yoga they disseminate—for example, there are Yogi Preceptors that dwell on the Kundalini Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Agni Yoga, and Guru Kripa Yoga platforms.
  5. Light Master – this individual has unfolded his or her cosmic soul awareness nucleus of identity into the highest level of the Cosmic Soul Awareness Subplane of the Second Cosmic Initiation, and can awaken this nucleus of identity and unfold it to the stage of the Liberated Ones in others; he or she can also guide the spirit on the fourth Domain to its origin.
  6. Cosmic Master – this individual has unfolded his or her Astral Soul and dwells in the Presence of the Cosmic Father God in the Cosmic Hierarchy. These Initiates awaken and unfold the Astral Soul and its vehicles of consciousness in others.
  7. Supracosmic Master (Guru) – this individual has returned the Supracosmic seed atom on one Supracosmic Path to awaken his or her Supracosmic Soul, and his or her Supracosmic Soul has ascended to the Guru Padam center above the Supracosmic brain chakra of that Path. The Supreme Guru anoints this individual to awaken the Supracosmic seed atoms of others on that Path, and to bring about Realization for those individuals, whose Supracosmic Soul dwells on that Path.
  8. Transcendental Master (Sat Guru) – this individual has returned their spirit to its origin on a Transcendental Path—particularly Transcendental Paths one through five—and whose ensouling entity dwells in the origin of the spirit. Rare individuals who reach this stage of development are Divinely empowered to lead the spirits of others that dwell on that Transcendental Path back to their origin.
  9. Multiplane Master (Adi Sat Guru) – this individual has awakened onto the highest Planes of the Bridge Path, or the sixth and seventh Transcendental Paths, and can minister to the spirit and ensouling entity in each Transcendental Path, in each Supracosmic Path, and throughout the Cosmic, Transplanetary, Planetary, and Subtle bands of the Continuum.

Other Forms of Mastery

In addition to spiritual Mastery, there are seven other major types of mastery that certain individuals demonstrate:

  1. Skill Mastery – this is the development of a skill to its highest degree, so that the Soul can express its ability through that conduit. This aspect of mastery activates the will current (Ichaichashakti).
  2. Knowledge Mastery – this is development of knowledge in one area of human endeavor to the highest degree, which confers genius and consummate expertise. This aspect of mastery activates the intuitive thread (Antakarana).
  3. Energetic Mastery – this is the development of the ability to heal and make attunements to minister to others. This aspect of mastery activates the stream of Divine Love and Compassion within the Soul (Karuna).
  4. Astral Mastery – this is the development of the ability to use the astral body to gather information and carry out remote ministry. At the highest level of this type of mastery, Initiates gain the ability to manifest a guide form to others (Kriya Shakti).
  5. Mastery of Cosmic Law – this is the development of the higher octaves of volition that permit activation of the spiritual powers on the higher Planes, which allow individuals to demonstrate supernormal abilities and miracles (Siddhi).
  6. Mastery of Faith and Surrender – this is the development of the capacity to make oneself a channel for a spiritual entity—for example, an angel, a spiritual Master, the Holy Spirit, or the Divine in one of Its Forms. Those who gain expertise in this type of mastery can channel the Light from this spiritual being, can speak on its behalf, and can bring forward guidance and teaching from this source (Gurumukh).
  7. Mastery of Manifestation – this is the development of the capacity to concretize what one intends and visualizes in human life and in the world. This is the form of mastery that allows one to get an idea and make it real; to conceive of a dream and to fulfill it; to have a desire and satisfy it.

Depending on where someone is working on the Continuum of Consciousness, different types of these other forms of mastery are featured:

  • Those who are operating on the Abstract Mind Plane focus upon developing types 1 and 2—skills and knowledge.
  • Those who work in the Psychic Realm highlight the initial development of types 3, 4, 6, and 7—performing attunement and healing, using their astral body, learning to channel, and learning to manifest.
  • Those who dwell in the First Exoteric and Mesoteric Initiation emphasize further development of types 3 and 6—employing the Light of the Holy Spirit to heal and comfort, and becoming a channel of the Holy Spirit to preach and prophecy.
  • Those who are undergoing the Second Planetary Initiation utilize the Mighty I AM presence to activate types 3 and 7—making attunements through the power of the spoken word (decrees and affirmation) and bringing out manifestation.
  • Those in the Third Planetary Initiation further develop types 3, 6, and 7—they learn to make attunements from the Manasic Plane; to channel the love, wisdom, and power of the Masters of the Planetary Hierarchy to humanity; and to concretize the aspects of their Soul Purpose in their human life.
  • Those in the First Cosmic Initiation practice types 5 and 6—they gain the ability to activate selected supernormal powers and they learn to channel the Light and Love coming from their Yogi Preceptor and the gods and goddesses of the Cosmic Causal Subplane.
  • From the Second to the Fifth Cosmic Initiation, types 3 and 6 are dominant—those disciples operating at these exalted levels learn to perform spiritual ministry and to receive the Light and Grace from their Supervising Initiate and the forms of the Divine of the upper Cosmic Sphere.
  • Those who are on a Supracosmic Path exercise types 3, 5, and 6—they minister to those who are on their Path; they operate the powers of that Path; and they become receptive to the ministry of the Guru of that Path and advanced Initiates.
  • Those who sojourn upon a Transcendental Path concentrate on types 3 and 6—they minister the Light to those spirits who are on that Path and they receive the guidance from their Sat Guru. Those who reach advanced levels on a Transcendental Path may also be trained in applying type 4, which enables them to manifest a guide form to the spirit of others on that Transcendental Path.

Spiritual Mastery underscores the migration of a spiritual essence into the Presence of the Divine at one level of the Continuum; these other forms of mastery represent the capacity to a spiritual essence to operate the love, wisdom, and power streams that are anchored on the levels of the Continuum of Consciousness that it has opened.

We encourage aspirants and disciples to contemplate the forms of spiritual Mastery and to notice which of the other forms of mastery they currently express—and the degree to which these other forms of mastery are developed. It is important to discern the differences between spiritual Mastery and these other forms of mastery:

To become a spiritual Master, one must transform their spiritual essence into the Presence of the Divine on their chosen Path, and receive anointing and empowerment to begin their ministry under the Aegis of the Divine Will.

To develop these other forms of mastery, one must specifically focus on obtaining the necessary education and training, and practicing this form of mastery until it becomes fully integrated into their ensouling entity.

Those who wish to learn to transform their ensouling entity and spirit—with the ultimate aim of reaching the shores of spiritual Mastery—can learn how to do this in our intermediate meditation classes, the by-mail and online Accelerated Meditation Program and the in-person Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation.

What Is the Outcome of Trauma?

By George A. Boyd ©2023

Q: Is trauma permanent? Does this forever change your destiny—and permanently ruin your life?

A: There are several perspectives on trauma we can adopt:

  1. Dissolution – Your Self and Soul have forever disappeared and appear to effectively no longer exist. You experience a spiritual death; you feel cut off from the Self and the Soul, and it appears that you are irrevocably cast out from communion with these deeper aspects of your nature.
  2. Accretion – a karmic veil has formed over your spiritual essences so you can no longer contact them. If you have access to a transformational modality—an active method such as transformational mantra or Kriya Yoga, or a passive method such as reception of the Light from an Initiate—you can progressively burn away this veil and reunite with your hidden spiritual essences.
  3. Disorganization – the structures of your mind have become disorganized through distortion of your beliefs, perception, and values through exposure to false information and conspiracy theories. This disorganization can spawn paranoia—and if severe—outright psychosis. This disorganization must be overcome through progressively challenging each distorted belief, value, and perception, and re-connecting to the Soul’s inner truth, or Dharma.
  4. Neurological damage – this perspective holds that the brain has been permanently damaged and can no longer express the Self and the Soul; it requires healing and regeneration to restore former functioning.
  5. Unprocessed issues – In this perspective, the trauma continues to form repetitive loops in the mind until the underlying issues are processed and integrated. These issues persist until the integration process is complete.
  6. Demonic possession – In this view, trauma is the invasion of the psyche by negative entities. The Light must exorcise these entities; once they are cast out, full functioning and sanity can be restored.
  7. Synthesis and rebirth – Through deconstructing each aspect of the trauma, the Soul’s native abilities, virtues, and knowledge can re-emerge. One finds the synthesis of wholeness that exists beyond the pairs of opposites of functioning and non-functioning—once this re-union has occurred, the Soul’s is freed again to express in human life.

We can examine each of these perspectives:

We do not find that those suffering trauma actually lose their Self and Soul, or are forever cut off from it, as in perspective one.

We notice that in some cases, when trauma appears as accretion, as in perspective two, when an appropriate transformational method is used, this veil dissolves and the Soul’s native abilities, virtue, and knowledge reappear.

In the event that there is mental disorganization as a result of trauma, as in perspective three, each layer of false belief needs to be refuted; each corrupted value examined and revised; and perception needs to be re-anchored in the Self and the Soul to reconnect the individual to his or her innate sense of truth.

Neurological damage, as in perspective four—when there is actual damage to the structure of the brain—this presents a greater challenge. This is similar to a sector of hard drive that has been damaged, so one can no longer write to it or retrieve information from it. The brain activity and function must be re-mapped on another area of the brain to restore functioning—in this case, there needs to be an actual re-wiring of the brain circuits.

Process and integration, as in perspective five, if done methodically, appears to be a means to progressively reduce the impact of the traumatic impressions embedded in the mind.

Exorcism, as in perspective six, appears to impact the issue at the level where it can be perceived in the imaginal stratum of the mind, where the issue entifies as a thought form or subpersonality. This type of inner work only appears to resolve issues when it resolves all seven levels of karmic expression—physical, etheric, emotional/desire, imaginal, cognitive (beliefs and thoughts), karmic impressions in the causal body, and the seed at the root of the karmic issue.

Synthesis and rebirth, as in perspective seven, uses a variety of evocative methods to work out the trauma at each level of the mind until it has been fully known, experienced, processed, released, and integrated. This utilizes a step-by-step deconstruction. What is deconstructed is then reconstructed through the Soul’s re-creation.

We do not think it is constructive to simply assume that the core structures of identity, volition, and intelligence have been destroyed, as in perspective one. Instead, we believe it would be valuable to use one of the other approaches of perspectives two through seven to see if one or more of these modalities produce release, inner movement, and progressive recovery. Through progressive therapy, inner work, and reception of healing energies, we believe that positive change is possible—and over time—complete functioning can be restored.

We explore ways of working with trauma in our Dysfunctional Family Coaching Program. Those of you who have experienced trauma in your family of origin or in your relationships may find this program beneficial.

How Not to Be a Crackpot

By George A. Boyd ©2023

Q: Why are there so many crazy, crackpot ideas that people believe in?

A: People believe in crackpot ideas—conspiracy theories and strange notions of pseudo-science, religion, and politics—because they are unable to verify what they believe. They will tell you they believe these things “on faith,” or because it is written in their scripture, or some person they regard as an authority has said it, or they got it as a revelation in an altered state of consciousness.

Verification is part of the discriminative aspect of the mind. When these inner “crap detectors” are working, they are going to deconstruct or correct these crazy notions. When these inner sentinels of the mind are sleeping or disengaged, people will drift into full crackpot mode.

What are these nodes of discernment in the mind?

  1. Sense perception – This constructs your “world picture”—what you see in your environment around you. Under normal conditions, this aspect of discernment will give you an accurate perception of what is in the space around your body and where your body is in relation to the objects around you. For example, you will recognize the stove and the dining room table in your house or apartment, and notice how far your body is from them.
  2. Reason – This is your reality-testing mechanism. It detects the truth or falsity of statements based on evidence. When people enter and remain in altered states of consciousness, this aspect of the mind shuts down, and people become susceptible to believing anything that is suggested to them. When reason is not operating, people are walking around in a hypnotic trance.
  3. Intellect – This is the part of your mind that can solve problems and model problems. To find out if something is true, you perform a test to see if the hypothesis you generate is likely correct, based on a statistical criterion you set. If your statistical test shows that something is likely true 95% out of 100%, you can deduce that it is probably true in most cases—while you can’t be entirely certain that you have proved your hypothesis, it looks like it is likely true. This is the method science uses to arrive at understanding of the world.
  4. Temple of Science – This is the collective repository of all of the tests and studies that have been done on any particular topic. When enough tests lend credence to a theory, scientific consensus accepts this as a current paradigm. For example, thousands of tests and observations have been done to verify the theory of evolution is likely correct.
  5. Illumined mind – When the Soul takes the Fourth Planetary Initiation, it fully awakens its Buddhic vehicle of consciousness. Through the heart and throat centers of this form, the Soul can detect the content of each nodal point the Soul has opened and of each Nadamic tone the spirit has purified. This generates discernment for the Way of the Soul and the Path of the spirit. Those that complete the Fourth Planetary Initiation affirm, “I am the Way and the Path.” This forms the foundation of spiritual discernment for the Planetary and Subtle bands of the Continuum.
  6. Interpenetrating Awareness – When a disciple awakens the Mahatma form on the Bridge Path, activating the medulla center of this form yields the highest discriminative awareness for all levels of the Continuum below this station on the Path. It gives instant knowledge for whatever information the disciple asks—this is like a powerful spiritual search engine that can access information about whatever spiritual topic the disciple wants to know.
  7. The Wisdom Mind of Satchitananda – In the heart center of the form of the ensouling entity of the seventh Transcendental Path, which we call Satchitananda, there is an intuitive switchboard that directly and objectively perceives the content of the mind for multiple parameters. These parameters are:
    • Knowledge of the element of earth
    • Knowledge of the element of water
    • Knowledge of the element of fire
    • Knowledge of the element of air
    • Knowledge of the element of Aether or space
    • Knowledge of the Experiential Mind, the field of memory for sense impressions and life events
    • Knowledge of Reason, the analytical and discriminative faculty
    • Knowledge of Ego (Ahamkar), the identification with the body, reason and life experiences
    • Knowledge of the Will, the principle of choice and arbiter of action
    • Knowledge of the Self: the field of the Knower, the instruments of Knowledge, and the Known
    • Knowledge of the Mythic Nucleus of Wisdom of the Subtle Realm
    • Knowledge of the Creative Nucleus of Power, the Soul of the Planetary Realm
    • Knowledge of the Omniscient Nucleus, the Monad of the Transplanetary Realm
    • Knowledge of the Compassionate Nucleus, the Astral Soul of the Cosmic Sphere
    • Knowledge of Omnipresent Nucleus, the Supracosmic Soul of the Supracosmic Sphere
    • Knowledge of the Omnipotent Nucleus, the Soul of the Bridge Path
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Violet Ray of Creation, T1
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Rose-Saffron Ray of Creation, T2
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Emerald Green Ray of Creation, T3
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Golden Yellow Ray of Creation, T4
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Royal Blue Ray of Creation, T5
    • Knowledge of the Path of the Rainbow Ray of Creation, T6
    • Knowledge of the Eternal Path of the Primal White Light Ray of Creation, T7
    • Knowledge of the Essence of Satchitananda

Nodes one through four comprise our personal and societal aspects of discernment; spiritual discernment arises from nodes five through seven. In the Subtle Realm—particularly the Lower Astral Plane—and the Psychic Realm, and the First and Second Planetary Initiations, sojourners through these realms do not have a touchstone to verify their experiences.

Much is constructed from the gossamer threads of belief and the tendrils of faith, and reliance on the veracity of sources from whom they learn these beliefs. Until they are able to subject these beliefs to the bright light of discernment, they will cling to these beliefs despite any verification they are true. Consequently, they gently drift into the intoxicating world of the crackpot.

The Boyd Crackpot Scale

We can characterize seven different levels of drift into crackpot mind:

  1. The individual is mostly sane, but harbors odd ideas about one to three topics.
  2. The individual continues to maintain relative sanity, but has odd ideas for four to ten topics
  3. The individual begins to shift from a rational stance to conviction about his or her beliefs, which cannot be verified; more than ten odd ideas make up his or her constellation of irrational beliefs. Those initially exposed to religious or political ideas may move into this posture. Here the conviction is not complete—the individual may be persuadable at this level to come back to reality, and may have some openness to examining his or her beliefs.
  4. The individual begins to rationalize and defend his or her irrational beliefs, and rejects evidence to the contrary; at this level, an individual has become immersed in a conspiracy theory or a system of pseudo-science, political, or religious beliefs. At this level, the individual will likely push back on any attempts to dissuade him or her of the fallacy of his or her beliefs—and he or she is “locked in” to the conspiracy theory at this stage.
  5. The individual begins to believe he or she is under attack or is persecuted for holding his or her beliefs. At this level, he or she begins to adopt paranoid ideation. Those for whom suspicion and mistrust begin to pervade their view of the world may develop a paranoid personality disorder.
  6. The individual’s beliefs start to condition his or her behavior, and he or she begins to act strangely in most situations. At this level, the individual may enter into schizotypal personality disorder.
  7. The individual’s beliefs become bizarre and delusional. He or she may hear voices that tell him or her weird things; he or she may hold beliefs that are totally irrational. At this stage, the individual has migrated into paranoid schizophrenia.

Your beloved, eccentric uncle or aunt—substitute whatever relative, friend, or co-worker that is in your life that demonstrates eccentricity—who has some odd ideas, is likely operating at level one or two.

People begin to drift away from reality at level three and four. These are the people in your life that are caught up in conspiracy theories, or have come to believe in the odd notions of pseudo-science, or have been convinced to believe in a religious or political ideology. Also, people that become involved in religious cults, or hate and terrorist groups operate at these levels.

At levels five through seven, the eccentric person in your life has begun to exhibit mental illness. These individuals need professional help—unfortunately, many of them are beyond the reach of even the most skillful interventions of mental health professionals. They will remain in the upper crackpot worlds, oblivious to rationality and reality, and will abide in these states until death liberates them from this continual hypnotic trance—or until their inner illumination ignites, to dispel the lies and delusions they have come to believe.

You can avoid becoming a crackpot through subjecting your beliefs to your personal and spiritual discernment faculties, and by not simply believing in ideas that you cannot verify. Start with the foundation of what you can verify:

  • Listen to the voice of wisdom within you.
  • Apply the criteria for discerning truth.
  • Hold any ideas you cannot verify as unproven hypothesis.
  • Analyze the reasoning that underlies claims and conjectures. If it is flawed, reject it.
  • Exercise critical thinking. Do not accept ideas without fully vetting them.
  • When your Illumined Mind begins to operate, allow it to reveal what is actually there in the inner worlds and not what imagination and magical thinking constructs.
  • Verify your intuitive impressions through examining them with the direct perception of your attentional principle.

If you will develop wisdom and discernment, you will steer clear of the pitfalls of crackpot mind.

The Seven Postures of Faith

By George A. Boyd ©2023

This is a companion article to “How Christians Get Caught Up into Conspiracy Theories.” We continue our inquiry into how Christians’ experience changes as they make progress on their spiritual journey towards sainthood.

Q: What are the different expressions of faith? Does faith have different facets during different stages of a Christian’s spiritual journey?

A: There are seven major postures of faith:

  1. Ego-based faith – The expression of faith at this level includes literal belief in the truth of the Bible, claiming Divine Promises will come true, and proclaiming superiority over others and specialness as a Christian. At this level, Christians demonstrate judgmentalness, intolerance towards those of other faiths, and readily believe that only they will be saved and everyone else will go to hell. They condemn others who do not adhere to their beliefs and values.
  2. Character-based faith – Faith at this level emphasizes correcting values, beliefs, and behavior to establish more loving, kinder, and ethical relationships with others. Believers at this level of spiritual maturation seek to live up to the core values of their faith and follow the teachings of Jesus; they want to “walk their talk” and improve their character, so they can be good examples for their families and their communities.
  3. Missionary faith – Those who reach this level, after having incorporated the moral values of their faith, feel they need to act on the Great Commission to bring others to the faith. At this level, they speak about how their faith has changed their lives, given them hope when they once felt despair, and provided a sense of meaning and purpose—when formerly, they had none.
  4. Visionary faith – Christians crossing the Psychic Realm begin to have mystic experiences. They may receive revelations; angels and Biblical figures may come to visit them in their dreams and meditations. They may receive a variety of messages, ostensibly from Jesus, the Virgin Mary, or from saints that tell them they are blessed and holy, and they are one of God’s chosen elect.
  5. Wisdom-guided faith – The sojourner who arrives at the Wisdom Plane listens to the inner voice of wisdom, which instills prudence, fosters good judgment, inspires personal restraint, develops forgiveness and understanding. Those that operate from this platform “tell the truth with love,” to facilitate others gaining insight into their behavior and how it affects others; those that can hear what those on the Wisdom Plane communicate to them, and implement it, usually change for the better.
  6. Communion-based faith – Those Christians who enter the First Planetary Initiation activate the Christ Child nucleus of identity. They receive direct guidance from the Holy Spirit, which comes to dwell in the inner altar at the core of the Moon Soul.
  7. Empowered faith – Christians who complete their journey through the First Exoteric and First Mesoteric Initiation attain the form of the Saint. From this platform, they can minister the Holy Spirit to others.

Many of the excesses of Christians arise from the first posture of ego-based faith. This perspective leads them to arrogantly assume they are righteous, their views are “the only truth,” and that others must follow what they believe or be damned.

Some Christians never grow out of this mindset; this has made others turn away from the Christian faith, based on the hypocrisy, the hatred, and intolerance that these ego-based Christians demonstrate.

As Christians grow in their spiritual walk, in the second posture they start to work with their conscience and their character, and strive to be more ethical and upright people.

As Christians further mature into the third posture, they focus on bringing new people into the fold, and hone their skills of communication and persuasion. In this perspective, Christian’s entire Self and personality is aligned with becoming aligned with becoming an ambassador for their religious organization.

As Christians continue to undergo spiritual growth, in the fourth posture, they begin to open into the Psychic Realm. Here, they begin to receive revelations, and have visitations from numinous beings. While some of these spiritual visitors may imbue the wayfaring Christian with sound doctrine and “gold tried in the fire,” a good number of these messages are distorted, deceptive, and deluded. Believing these revelations can lead believers into adopting conspiracy theories and outright fantasies as the truth.

When Christians begin to receive inner correction from the Light of Wisdom in the fifth posture, they begin to jettison their egotistical assumptions about their faith and abandon the delusional beliefs that they adopted in the Psychic Realm. This instills a greater sobriety and humility in believers, as they come to understand greater truths revealed through the Voice of Wisdom—instead of following the Sirens of the Astral they encountered in the Psychic Realm.

During the sixth posture, Christians gain direct access to the Holy Spirit, as it comes to dwell in the core of the Christ Child nucleus of identity. At this stage, the Holy Spirit begins to manifest in different ways:

  1. The Spirit of Truth – This changes people’s false beliefs and negative attitudes, and uproots the spurious assumptions of conspiracy theories and the erroneous doctrine of cultic groups.
  2. The Comforter – This initiates emotional healing through catharsis, telling the truth, and surrender of willful and defensive attitudes.
  3. The Merciful One – This forgives sins, and brings about reunion with the Moon Soul, which grants the experience of rebirth into a pure and good spiritual essence.
  4. The Divine Counselor – This bestows the guidance of wisdom to correct behavior and align human life to the moral values at the core of the Moon Soul.
  5. The Divine Healer – This ministers physical and etheric healing to believers, and to those for whom they pray.
  6. The Teacher and Revelator – This awakens the Revelatory Center or “Mind of Christ,” which reveals the meaning of scriptural passages, and gives insight into symbols, archetypes, and parables.
  7. The Divine Guide – This leads the Christian’s attentional principle through the inner worlds of Light into the presence of the Christ Child nucleus of identity, where it can directly commune with the Holy Spirit in the altar of the heart.

When Christians attain the prize of sainthood in the First Mesoteric Planetary Initiation in the seventh posture of faith, they begin to minister the Holy Spirit to others. This ministry from the platform of the saint invariably has the ability to send the Holy Spirit to comfort those who are troubled and ask for help. But the Divine may confer additional gifts on some saints:

  1. To manifest a guide form to the attentional principle of others and lead them through the inner Planes to the presence of their Christ Child nucleus of identity
  2. To perform miracles.
  3. To demonstrate the stigmata and other marks of sublime sanctification.
  4. To reveal the truth that enables others to see the error of their ways; to confess their sins, to repent, and make a commitment to follow the Divine Will for their lives.
  5. To heal others’ illness and emotional pain at the physical, etheric, and emotional levels through laying on of hands or through giving people objects charged with the Light of the Holy Spirit.
  6. To directly channel the Holy Spirit to give teaching and counsel.
  7. To demonstrate perfected virtue and holiness.

Unfortunately, many of those who claim to represent the Christian faith are established in postures one or four, where they either come across as bigoted and judgmental assholes or complete crackpots. Perhaps if more of those who have genuine communion with the Holy Spirit in posture six, and those who have advanced to the Glory of Sainthood in posture seven, became the face of this religion to the world—for those who seek the shelter of religion to help them receive guidance for their lives, to reform their character, and experience genuine spiritual growth—the religion would attract new followers, who stay with the faith, and not abandon it in disgust.

How Do You Know the Soul Is Guiding You?

By George A. Boyd ©2023

Q: I feel cutoff from my Soul and my higher mind. While I get some ideas, I don’t know where they are coming from. What are the signs the Soul might be guiding me?

A: The Soul has three major postures in relation to the personality:

  1. The Soul is actively directing the personality and channeling its gifts in your life.
  2. The Soul is detached from the personality, while the personality lives through its destiny karma.
  3. The Soul engages in dialog with the personality and answers your questions.

There are seven major ways the Soul will interface with your personality:

  1. The Soul actively guides your behavior. You receive direction as to what you need to do.
  2. The Soul comforts and assuages your emotions of fear, shame, anger, grief, and pain; it leads you to a state of peace and balance.
  3. The Soul corrects your erroneous beliefs and shapes your values and character.
  4. The Soul gives you intuitive knowledge and creative inspiration that can be applied in your career and your avocation.
  5. The Soul reveals its expressed Soul Purpose to you and gives you a plan to carry it out.
  6. The Soul works with the karmic issues in your unconscious mind that hinder your personal and spiritual growth.
  7. The Soul activates its spiritual abilities and channels them through your life; in effect, the Soul speaks through you, heals and ministers through your personality—such that you know that you are not the doer.

You can commune with your higher mind through a variety of techniques we teach in our intermediate meditation programs—the in-person Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation and the by-mail and the online Accelerated Meditation Program. These include:

  • Kundalini Yoga
  • Raja Yoga
  • Receptive and Reflective Meditation
  • Agni Yoga

How do these methods work?

  • Kundalini Yoga awakens your awareness into your Superconscious mind into the presence of your Soul.
  • Through Raja Yoga, you can move into the presence of the Soul in full consciousness.
  • Through Receptive and Reflective Meditation, you can dialog with the Soul and get clear answers.
  • Through Agni Yoga, you can channel your Soul’s gifts as attunements and spiritual ministry.

?You need to move beyond the surface of the Conscious mind and move your attention into the Superconscious mind, so you can contact your Soul directly—so you know without a shadow of a doubt that your Soul is communicating to you and is expressing through you. This way, you know your Soul, and you clearly hear its voice, and there is no confusion.
