On relationships and break ups

When I first started channeling it was quite by surprise. I have always been a writer, yet over time my writing developed into channeling. I did not recognize at first I was receiving “words” from a source other than my own mind/heart. As I continued to write about my own issues I found answers beyond my scope of reasoning made their way into my articles.

On Relationships and Break-Ups

We are attracted to lovers for many different reasons. Every relationship has some kind of Karma. Karma is a magnetic force of positive and negative vibrations. Each positive and negative vibration has a light side and a shadow side.

There are two categories of relationships. The first and most common is known as “Karmic relationship”. The Karmic relationship is one based on learning of harsh life lessons. These types of relationships can carry a love/hate feeling, be codependent and destructive. However the entire time you are growing into a stronger person. If you listen to your feelings and stay out of denial, your relationships can improve. Healing the pattern of Karmic relationships can be done through psychotherapy, self help books, 12 step meetings, and spiritual work.

The second kind of relationship is that of “Soulmate”. Within this person is a soul whom you have known through many of your past life times. This type of relationship is one of teamwork and completing energies.

Jung defined this theory in the human psyche known as the “anima” and “animus”. The animus is the masculine side of the female, and anima is the feminine side of the male.

Our world is based upon the theory of perception what you SEE is what you get. However beyond physical sight and beyond analytical thought there are the forces of Karma. The subconscious self creates the lessons that karma brings. (If you fear abandonment your subconscious will being you lessons of abandonment.)  A synchronicity between the magnetic forces of Karma and the occurrences in your life will teach you.

I believe we fall in love with the same person over and over again. The conflict comes in when we realize the person we are dating, is not the person were thought they were. We meet someone, whose traits we are attracted too, then we fill out the rest of the picture with traits we want to see in them.

My idea of the perfect man has changed a lot over the years. I started with a sketch of what I wanted and with each new relationship I paint a clearer picture. All along I was projecting my animus onto the man in my life. Even if my boyfriend exhibited unhealthy traits, I still saw the good parts of my animus in him.

All of my relationships have been Karmic. With each goodbye I was like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, with new sight. After a break up there is a mourning period, and a time for reflection. We must question the roles we played in the relationship. Where did our shadow take over, and in what ways? We must learn from each goodbye or we are doomed to repeat it.

Relationships open new doors in our consciousness. It is our goals to open as many as possible. To accept and heal our shadow self so that our anima or animus is healthy. When the anima is healthy, and the feminine is balanced then, there can be an alchemical or sacred marriage between the two selves. The two selves join to make the person whole. This person can now wield the best of their masculine and feminine selves.

Shakespeare on Shadows:

The play itself ends with Puck’s monologue, conciliatory for the moment, but vested with warning lest future disturbances require his remedy:

If we shadows have offended, think but this and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here while these visions did appear;
and this weak and idle theme, no more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend, if you pardon, we will mend.
and, as I am an honest Puck, if we have unearned luck
now to scape the serpent’s tongue we will make amends ere long,
else the Puck a liar call. So good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
and Robin shall restore amends. (V.i.409-424; emphasis added)

In the alchemical work, “Mercurius, called Hermes, is not only the receptacle of the prima materia and the symbol for it, he is also the agent of transformation” (Singer 100).

In alchemy, Jung proposes that the prima materia refers to the “unknown substance that carries the projection of the autonomous psychic content” (Psychology and Alchemy 317), which is as yet undifferentiated, but through the alchemical process will be broken down and distilled into the philosopher’s gold, the goal of the work. Mercurius acts as a symbol for the alchemical transformation by virtue of his dual nature, as the prima materia embodies all the opposites together, yet in chaos

Alchemy is called the “Hermetic Art”, a secret or occult practice, named after the legendary founder of alchemy, Hermes Trismegistus the “thrice greatest Hermes”. The alchemist’s goal was to experiment with physical substances to transform base metal into gold. The philosopher’s stone was the agent which would enable this to occur. The aim was not real material gold but philosophical gold, concerned not only with the transformation of inanimate matter but with their own spiritual transformation.

Jung believed that alchemy stood as the ‘Shadow’ in compensatory relationship to Christianity. Christianity’s one-sided dogma and inability to unite the opposites had alienated us from our natural roots in the unconscious. Alchemy extracts the shadow from sunlight and the sun ray from its shadow. The philosophers stone is produced by the unity of divine opposites, the sphere of divine unwillingness, non-being, death and the sphere of divine will, being and life. The sun and the shadow rotate casting their opposites; the God, Dionysius, sun’s Shadow, killing and dismembering the alchemist (I kill and make alive), and the sun God, Apollo, raising the alchemist to eternal life (I wound and heal).

“This gold is our male, and it is sexually joined to a more crude white gold — the female seed: the two together being indissolubly united, constitute our fruitful Hermaphrodite.” – Philalethes

When I was with Chris (1993), I told him something in my sleep- “Gold is Gold, Water is Water- know the difference.”

This is the end of that “article” written for my own health and sanity.

I have drawn conclusions that through Jungian Theory of the Anima/Animus we can go beyond duality, in fact heal duality and become ONE which leads to Philosophical, Spiritual, or Alchemical Gold. Through out History Alchemical Gold has been sought by the rich, powerful and the genius. Masons, Buddhist, Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt all speak of this Gold. I feel today we have replaced Spiritual Gold with “Bling”- it’s enough to make an Occultist want to cry and throw a fit. But I keep going- looking for the actual goal, the REAL Gold.. the love that heals and empowers all.

Crazy talking to the Gods

I am about to post a lot of channeling on The Occultist in the Corner. As an American in a society who thinks “touched” means “crazy” I feel I must preface my spiritual channeling with a song- that describes an awakening in America.

We are all on the “hero’s” journey in our lives (like Luke from Star Wars, or say Gandhi). Our ultimate goal is to reach a state of pure wisdom & Love. “My hero’s had the heart to live their lives out on a limb” 🙂

See Joseph Campbell, Buddhism, Enlightenment, Self Actualization, and Mythology for more information.

I have always been a person out on a limb- reaching higher for knowledge. Since I have been channeling I understand to have knowledge we must let go of what we have been told to think, told to see, and told to act like. We must Discover ourselves. We must go beyond our “programming” or learned thought patterns and for me that means beyond what American Doctors label as insanity.

I am a psychic, I SEE and TALK to “things” and they talk back. It is that simple and true. Unlike many of my fellow psychics I will not talk to the dead… I prefer to speak with ascended masters, angels, spiritual guides- Basically those beings who know more than I do. So when I say I am a channel- I mean I speak with Gods and Masters.

Does this make me special? I wish it didn’t. I wish I could talk about my visions of Buddha with my neighbors instead of talking about the weather. I wish I could say to a stranger “Gee your aura is a little funky-  do you need a hug?” Or having a stranger come up to me and say “Hey I saw Buddha last night and He told me to say Hi to you.” So does that make me special? Because from my perspective it gets lonely and alienating.

In an attempt to disentangle myself from alienation I will to share my channeling- for those who have EYES and EARS. You decide if I am a Prophet or a mad woman :).

Reality vs Creativity

Reality vs Creativity

Saturday, June 13, 2009

By Occult Priestess Korinne

Nay Sayers use “Reality” as the reason to be restricted. This sets up a tao dynamic of seeming opposites when you consider the perception of the visionary who’s art seems to live and breath before their eyes. The tao of mundane reality vs creative reality.
I cannot break it down into science vs religion- the tooth fairy vs lab tech. Extremes happen at each level of experience/function/form. Not all anything is anything- we are all one and we are all unique. Oneness is eternal- individuality is dimensionally time based.

One side states our world and reality are fixed- like a clock, we are all toy soldiers who carry genes, etc. through a mechanism called time. There is no reason nor point to life- only to continue the chain of existence.

The other side states that we are all one, we are eternal, we are what we call God manifest in the third dimension (where perception is based on the rules of time/space and dimension.). Our universe is the story book we live in as human characters on the stage of life. Reality is mutable in nature – magick is real.

Finding out what side of that fence you are on is one of the first steps toward evolution of consciousness. If you find yourself on the Fixed side of the fence- I do not know how to find you, I simply do not know where that place is.

If you find you have created in your life- brought something new to our world that was not here before you came- such as a piece of art, song lyrics, your performance in a play, a dance recital, public ritual- or that interesting cup of tea you mixed today. These are some simple ways we become creators in this play of life. (Advanced students can create their own reality according to their highest will.)

Maybe you have never landed on the moon, but you have been there in your mind- mental experiences so mirror actual physical ones that there are parts of our consciousness that cannot tell the difference between the two. That being a fact imagine, remember all the places you have been in your mind, all the conversations, the dreams, the intensity, the peace.

Now shift your focus to your heart- the home of our feelings. If the mind thinks then surely the heart feels. Just like the mind it stores memories, scenes, and wishes. Take your time and ask your heart what it remembers from the past.

The physical experiences (REALITY) trigger the mental and emotional systems- thus giving you three ways of experiencing life. 1. Physical tactile sensory 2. Mind thought judgment 3. Heart feeling emotion.

A truly balanced life incorporates all three above notions. When the three are working in harmony with each other- the partnership creates depth in each perception. Heart can experience intuition, mind can experience cosmic consciousness or oneness, body can become a “pure vehicle”, a temple for the mind and heart.

Having the mind heart and body working in partnership brings about an alchemical change in the human- Enlightenment- to be anointed, such as Buddha or Christ. “You can do these things and more…”

We can do it!

Buddhism and the Tarot- a meeting of the minds

NAMASTE’-

Today I was talking to myself, again. We were discussing our impending meeting with our spiritual mother’s (Guru’s) family member. You see when I was twenty one I met my Buddhist teacher, Guru (from darkness to light) and spiritual mother. Her name was Maria Rose, as a devotee I came to know her as Sri Mamua Devi. As I evolved through the Buddhist teaching (Dharma) my Guru was a constant presence. With the folly of life and youth I relocated far from my Guru and lost touch.

In 2007 I reconnected with the family member of my Guru, at which time I found out that Maria Rose had passed into the realms of light. I was distracted by her loss, however as all devotees come to understand, the Guru teaches beyond the physical body- therefore their teaching and guidance are in no way restricted by death, time or distance.

The topic of the meeting with my Gurus family member is the Tarot. I began thinking of how I would explain that the cards are symbolic representations of archetypal energy, and how our spirit guides communicate with us during a reading. I thought- hmm how interesting to be explaining psychic *mystical* phenomenon to a Buddhist! I am not bragging when I say I know the Tarot. Buddhism is a path I follow, but I have never had a dispute between being psychic and being a Buddhist. However the Tarot is an Occult subject.

How do the Buddhists feel about the Occult? I take the story of Milarepa as my only example. Milarepa started out life as a “Black Magician” and thus had to suffer humility under his Gurus guidance for many years. Once Milarepa was “still” the Guru Marpa then began to teach him all of the wonders of the universe. Milarepa meditated in solitude for so many years that he actually learned how to fly. Milarepa then began to teach all the wonders of the universe to his devotee’s- until his ascension at age 84. Milarepa was mostly known for the miracles he manifested in front of his students.

The reason I know the story of Milarepa is not the fruit of much belabored Buddhist research. I prefer to undertake the practice of the dharma rather than study the history. The reason I know Milarepa- One day after a lovely meditation, Sri Mamua Devi read aloud an extensive list of unusual sounding names, and asked us devotees which name stood out most to us. The name I most remembered was “Milarepa”. I printed out the story of Milarepa and placed it into my Buddhist “Book of Shadows” (lol Buddhist Wiccan). I have found myself reading Milarepa’s story many times throughout the years. In the past two days I found out that Milarepa is in my Buddhist “family” lineage. That means my Guru’s Guru, His Guru’s Guru (you see like a family) way back in the 1000’s – 1050 to be exact Milarepa lived as an Enlightened Being, not the first or the last, but one in a GREAT succession of spiritual teachers.

I experienced a large “COSMIC WINK” from this information. My Kundalini was awakened at age 30, which is 7 years after I met Sri Mamua Devi. A person like me (ignorant Westerner) with Kundalini rising at 30- is a testament to the power of my Guru and all in the lineage! I mean WOW!

At age 30 I purchased an astrological report on-line, which I had never done before. I was so impressed with the site- I figured what the heck (www.adze.com). I was pretty shocked my eyes skimmed over the words at the end of the report- “In your last life you lived in Tibet.” That was the first time I let myself imagine I had been enlightened in a past life. It is known that if you reached enlightenment in the past- enlightenment is attainable – possibly likely in this very lifetime!

Now, with the information that Milarepa is in the lineage, I wonder if I have any personal/karmic spiritual ties to his energy. I like to wonder about things like that! So Milarepa is my great, great, great and so on, Guru’s Guru.

“Blessings to my Guru and my Guru’s Guru.”

If it seems I am talking to myself that is true. I figured why waste good thoughts when I can share them in a blog. I am also trying to be conversational and somewhat witty- how am I doing?

Teaching a Buddhist Tarot is also a great opportunity for my own understanding. I speak in Tarot, the other person speaks in Dharma, and we find the common meanings. I am most excited about the possibilities of what I may learn.

I will be speaking of spiritual guides, visions in the minds eye (pituitary gland), intuition, emotion- and many other occult and esoteric teachings. Buddhism teaches that many of these things are distractions, illusions and not valid sources of information. Although Buddhism still employees the “Seer” (psychic) to seek out the reincarnations of those in the lineage.

I am so pleased to have this opportunity!

Spirit Guides and You!

Hello! This is my third day as a “Blogger” and I am happy to see we have a question already! Yesterday I was speaking about the lesser known parts of our human psyche. I would like to address the question first, and then finish explaining where I left off yesterday.

Rose Vanden Eynden author of the books “So You Want to be a Medium?”,Metatron: Invoking the Angel of God’s Presence” and “Ask a Medium” said:

Some folks believe that spirit guides are actually the anima/animus inside us instead of a separate energy. I’d be interested to hear your theory on that question.”

(For more on Rose and her literature see her website www.vandeneynden.biz .)

Dry and to the point:

The anima/animus are reflections of the outer Ego personality, mirrors plain and simple. You can argue that the anima/animus is a “separate soul” who is learning about life as they live through yours, observing from the Shadows of the subconscious. I like that theory, but I have never read anything that sounded remotely like it. I started with the theory that “Dissociative Identity Disorder” (DID- old term =Multiple Personality Disorder) was caused by several SOULS in one body- not different EGOS (personalities). I suppose we get into the muddy waters of what is possession and what is a soul vs an ego, what is a medium (hey Buy Rose’s Book). I will explore this some other time.

Spiritual Guides are beings/souls/essences with which your soul has a “contract”. Think of spirit guides as teacher/parents who chose not to incarnate, but to help you from their level of reality. A little known fact is that your Twin Flame (other part of your soul) is often your main guide. I believe we wrote what I term as a “LIFE SCRIPT” before we incarnated into our “animal body”. Your spirit guides helped you Write this Life Script as the your very own Mythological Hero’s Journey.

I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain’t gonna lose Queen: We are the Champions (Heroes).

I believe Everyone wrote a Hero’s or “Shero’s” Life Script. The spiritual guides are an Essential element to your success in your own Reality/Mythology.

Personal Notes – not so dry or to the point…

I also heard that my animus was where I received all of my intuition and knowledge. I contemplated this deeply and asked myself, Could I be Hermes?

Then I was instantly reminded of all the amazing and unbelievable things I have channeled and received from Hermes. I was simply not THAT brilliant. I  feel/know that my inner male is truly a reflection because he has changed and evolved along with me. I have taken the very quiet time it requires to work with and know the subtle energies of the mind. The only way to become an expert is to do the work and record the data.

I remember one day having a candid conversation with my “Main” spiritual guide Hermes. I asked him how I could keep from being confused with all the different voices in my head. “Hermes do you have voices in your head?” He answered he did not have the same issue, his head was as clear as glass. Hermes had just introduced me too two more guides, Plato and Aristotle. I had grown used to Hermes, my higher self, my guru and various other spiritual guides, but adding two more teachers at this stage of the game (I was 33) was confusing. I came to understand that Plato and Aristotle were guides that you can “graduate” into as you evolve.

William Blake said Aristotle was the “Teacher of those who Know” could Blake have been in spiritual communication with Aristotle? We think So!

If you can indulge yourself by reading the great classics or gazing at masterpieces of art- you will find a spiritual essence in them. Especially with Authors, the spiritual themes are blatant outright, Art is something beyond language. Those of a creative nature have Artistic guides who inspire them- we used to call them MUSES.

U2 helps


Stay (Faraway and so close)

Here is Bono and U2 acting as Spirit Guides to another band.

 

Yesterday I began to tackle the very extensive subject matter of our psyche. I am satisfied with the information given on the Anima/Animus in the last blog. I did not mention the other two parts of the psyche, which are much more esoteric – The inner child and the “Doorway”. Perhaps we will come back to that later?

If you have any questions for “The Occultist in the Corner”- speak up!
