Pyramids

secretsoftheserpent

Pyramids are all over the world. Why is the pyramid used instead of a different shape? What were the ancients trying to tell us? Most of todays buildings look like stylized pyramids. Ask any architect and they will tell you they just structurally make sense. The ancients didn’t just build pyramids just because the structurally made sense. They were leaving a message. A message that has stood the test of time and has been forgotten. Until now.

Growth

Everything has cycles … Expansion – Contraction … Construction – Destruction. It is all part of daily life.

secretsoftheserpent

Growth is what we are here to do. Growth is creativity. It does not matter what you grow in, just as long as you grow. Growth is not possible without practice and training. All to often we think of victory as growth. Nature does not care about victory, she is only interested in growth. Growth is possible only to the one who is constantly expanding his or her abilities. When you think you have won, you stop growing. A team that is not challenged will not get better. If you are playing a video game and it is to easy, eventually you will get bored with it. I am not saying accept defeat. Defeat is a state of mind. The person who realizes all growth possibilities are with in themselves never accepts defeat.

The Mind

secretsoftheserpent

When you look out into the night sky, the forest, city streets, across a lake or anywhere else, you are seeing your mind. The mind is not the brain. The brain is just the receiver. Because this receiver sees in poles or duality we see everything as something or nothing. We always see what is there, but never think about what is not there. How can you know what is there without the contrast of what is not there?

What’s Blocking Your Connection To Source?

By Amy Brucker

A client of mine made a strong confession during our first session together:

My purpose is calling, I can feel it. I just can’t get to it.

Not for lack of trying, I’m definitely trying, but something isn’t working.

She wanted to make money by engaging her purpose. She wanted to have fun integrating her spiritual gifts into her work.

Yet at the core of her desires, what she really wanted was to feel deeply connected to her Soul. She wanted life to flow through her instead of getting stuck at the logjam created by the belief she’d inherited from her grandfather: “Poverty is a Virtue.”

Instead of flow she felt anxious.

She wasn’t getting any sleep. She was exhausted. She was getting older.

And the possibility of one more birthday without the deep Soul connection she desired was more than she could bear.

The Flow State

secretsoftheserpent

I talk about being in the Flow State and how magic can put you in the flow state, but what really is the Flow State? The Flow State is what happens when you are not thinking about the past, you are not thinking ahead, you are just thinking about what is in front of you each second. Not thinking with words, just being in the moment. If you are walking in a park and you see a beautiful tree for the first time, don’t think “Wow that is beautiful!”. You just see it and enjoy it for the beauty that it is. When you are in Flow State you are in a moving meditation, meaning your mind is silent.

What If Everything You Need Is A Mile Away?

By Amy Brucker

Louise and I lived in the same neighborhood for ten years. I walked by her house on a regular basis. We never met.

One day, Louise was walking with her dog Bodhi when an inner Voice told her to take a right turn instead of her usual left. She did, and because of this, we met on the sidewalk. Something clicked between us. We exchanged numbers. We’ve been inseparable ever since.

For as long as I’ve lived here, I haven’t met anyone in this town who’s become a friend, and it’s not for lack of trying. I’ve done all sorts of things to meet people, but alas, it wasn’t in the cards.

Then one day, I met Louise. Instant BFF.

Sometimes life is like that. There’s struggle for ten years and than bam! You shift something simple, take a different turn, and open yourself up to receiving exactly what you’ve been wanting. It was there the entire time, you just didn’t see it.

Everything You Need is a (Metaphoric) Mile Away

The things you need are close to you already. If there’s anything you’re pining for, that you’re truly needing, it’s right there, you just don’t see it yet.

It might be close in the physical sense, like Louise living a mile away.

But it might also be close in the energetic sense, like a lifestyle you desire.

And it’s right there, so close you could practically touch it.

The problem is, you might be looking in the wrong place, sticking to a routine that is just a touch off where you need to be. Or you’re looking with the wrong perspective.

The point is, everything you need is a mile away. All you have to do is tune in to the Voice that’s guiding you to get there.

It might take a day. It might take ten years, but when the Voice says, “turn right”, it’s important to turn right.

How Do You Know if it’s the Right Voice?

Learning how to distinguish the Voice of your Higher Self from the Voice of Fear is a process. They have a distinctly different quality, so it’s helpful to experiment on a daily basis so you can be ready when you really need to trust your inner guidance.

The Voice of Fear usually has a force to it. It’s harsher, abrupt, demanding, commanding, pushy, sneaky.

The Voice of the Higher Self is usually a gentle or firm suggestion that’s wrapped in a sense of indifference, or perhaps calmness.

It’s important to practice discerning the difference so you know which voice is speaking to you when you most need to know.

Listen

As you go about your day, no matter what you’re doing, pay attention internally for blips of images, thoughts, words, sensations. Each one might be guidance for your journey, helping you course correct so you end up going where you most need to be to fulfill one of your desires.

It might take a minute. It might take ten years. But if you listen, you’ll get there.

Think about an area in your life where you feel stagnant and frustrated. Then think about the inner guidance you’ve been ignoring. There is likely a direct correlation between the two.

Where is your inner guidance leading you? What direction has she given that you’ve dismissed?

Interesting to think about, isn’t it.

Sweet dreaming,

Amy

Force and Form

secretsoftheserpent

Making an impression on the subconscious is the key to Magic. It is the main purpose of rituals. What ever info given during a ritual is impressed on the subconscious. In real life when something happens to a person in a traumatic way or with lots of emotion, that makes a lasting impression on the subconscious. When that happens to most, they sometimes have problems the rest of their lives. We want to make positive impressions on the subconscious. We do this by employing Force and Form.

Karma and Dharma

secretsoftheserpent

Most people in western world think that Karma is if you do good things, good things will happen to you and if you do bad things, bad things will happen to you.

Eunuch

secretsoftheserpent

Everything that was known about eunuchs in ancient history is lost. Most people have never even heard the term eunuch, unless they are a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean. An Eunuch is a castrated man and we are told they were servants or slaves. They were castrated to make them reliable servants to the royal court. They were reliable alright, but they definitely were not slaves or servants. They enjoyed what they did.
