The Glossary provides a repository
for general and specific terms used throughout this web site
For the Glossary, whenever you see a term in bold itallic, it represents a term that is somewhere in this glossary. Rather than making these into links within the page, I have decided that it is best to treat this glossary like a dictionary. All of the terms are important, and going through from top to bottom I believe will serve you best.
| Single Terms
||The card within the Sun
Spread which is assigned to the day of birth for the
individual. See Sun
||The combination of the sun
spread, moon spread and rising spread indicated for the year
0 quadration of the deck of cards. The Birth Chart
for an individual represents the qualities that will be
effective for the entire life for the individual.
By infusing the astrological Sun, Moon and Rising signs
over the Birth Chart, an individual's magnetism can be
infused into the reading.
||A contractual agreement
between the Soul and Creator which allows the Soul to
incarnate in order to evolve. Essentially, Spirit
represents a perfected state where all elements are in
balance. In this state of perfection, the Creator
Desires to know itself, and thus sends forth the Soul.
The Soul represents an instance of the Creator, and it's
evolution creates a path through the vastness of time.
In order to evolve, the Soul needs to incarnate into the
realm of free choice, and in doing so is given the opportunity
to move closer to (Seek) the Creator.
||The exact moment when the first
breath enters the physical being, infusing the imprint
of the stellar forces upon the physical body. The
Spirit had been alive in the Mother all throughout gestation,
and to some degree even before conception as the factor
of the Soul impulse. See Moment
of Birth below.
||Essentially the terms of
the Birth Contract stated above.
||The chakras are exposed in
the framework relative to the columns, where the 1st chakra
is aligned with the 1st column on the right. The
zodiac is rotated such that the signs of Capricorn and
Aquarius are aligned over the 1st chakra. By dissecting
the zodiac into 6 segments, each segment will align over
the first 6 columns--going from right to left--thereby
associating 2 signs per chakra. The chakra rulers
are represented by the archetypal mythical characteristics
associated with the signs indicated. The 7th chakra
is transcendental in nature, and is therefore governed
by the universal masculine and feminine forces.
||The top row of 3 cards that
sits above the 7x7 matrix of the framework for the cards.
This row of cards was termed the Sun Line by Olney Richmond,
denoting that they were outside the influence of the planetary
rulers that governed the 7x7 matrix of cards that sits
||This is in essence the Light
of God, or supreme consciousness. This light is
not in a form that is perceptible to the human senses
in its pure, or essential form. However, Divine
Light can be filtered such that it can be made perceptible
to our physical form, and the awareness of this Light
then becomes the function of the Dance of Shiva in the
Brow (3rd Eye). Thus, an aspect of Creator that
is unmanifest can come to be known if the individual is
capable of attaining the necessary level of communication.
||In its purest form, Divine
Love refers to the universal vibration that pulsates at
the core of existence. This vibration carries within
it the supreme consciousness that we call God, though
equally resonates the harmonic of love that brings form
to life. In a more general form of the term, Divine
Love refers to the Love of Creator, or the Love that Creator
has for it's creation.
||The Evolved Spade is a symbolic
reference to the circular nature of the suit evolution.
The 4 suits equate to the 4 seasons--elements, directions,
etc.--in the order of Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds and Spades.
From the standpoint of Spirit, the Spades are oldest,
followed by Diamonds, Clubs and Hearts (being youngest).
From the standpoint of physicality, the Hearts come first,
followed by Clubs, Diamonds and Spades. By looking
at these representations as a union, they join each other
at the endpoints--being the Heart and Spade. The
combined image appears as a circle where the Heart is
followed by the Spade when viewing one direction, and
where the Spade follows the Heart when looking from the
||The positions in the framework are
influenced by the forces that are in effect based on row
and column. Each position in the sun
spread has been termed a 'House' to indicate the location,
or place, through which these universal forces act upon
the individuality. The card that resides in any
house in the sun
spread represents the owner of that house.
|Represents the accumulation
of Soul growth encountered through life as a human.
The karmic history is a snapshot of the individual akashic
record, encoded into the DNA of the individual at birth.
Due to the nature of the pattern inscribed into the individual
memory, the Soul work in life tends to be dominated by
the need to correct imbalances that are exposed as bad
||Karmic Patterns represent
an expression of habits that have been accumulated over
lifetimes. When the Soul births into a Life stream,
it is conditioned by the karmic patterns already in place
set up during previous opportunities for Soul growth.
||A Life Reading incorporates
the individual's natal sun, moon and rising signs into
the 'Oracle 0' chart, represented as the year 0 quadration
for the sun spread,
moon spread and
Since the quadrations are purely mechanical in nature,
by overlaying the persons individual astrological orientation
over the Oracle 0 chart will infuse the individual magnetism
into the reading.
|Moment of Birth
||The exact time indicated when
a person takes their first breath on the planet.
In astrology it is used to calculate the Rising sign,
and in Oracle Cards it is used to determine the minute
of birth. See Birth
||An infinitesimally small period
of time marked as the event horizon. Essentially
the point within the center of the Heart which represents
the individual 'Choice', exposing the balance of the Cherub/Ego.
||A fundamental principle
representing our highest purpose in life. This is
essentially reflective of how the Sun operates in relation
to the Earth, where it provides the warmth and nourishment
necessary for organic growth. Contacting the individual
pure potential then becomes the nourishment for the Soul.
|Science of The Cards
|A term used by Richmond to
denote that the theories he presented in 'The Mystic Test
Book' were based on fixed universal laws, essentially
based on number. He used what he called astral mathematics
to calculate the position of each card within the framework
based on the month and day of birth. The term Card
Science is simply a simplification of the term Science
of the Cards used by Richmond.
|Solar Time Card
||A term used by Richmond
to denote card location of the central position of the
Sun Line (see Crown
||A reference to the universal
fundamental principle of Cause and Effect. Attention
to this principle reveals that we are all connected through
a spiritual matrix of some sort, and that by affecting
one you affect all. There is no separation.
||A term used to indicate the barrier
between dualistic terms, especially Heaven/Earth.
The Veil is another term used to indicate the Void, or
the primordial substance from which creation manifests.
Essentially, when approaching the Veil from the standpoint
of physical plane reality, one essentially enters the
void that separates Heaven from Earth. When consciousness
is operating through the abstract, lucid mind then symbolic
messages can awaken an inner awareness that can only be
attained through the journey into the void. All
attachments need to be released in order to complete the
journey, so attachment then indicates the limiting factor
in terms of awakening the universal consciousness available
from the perspective of Heaven.
| Dualistic Groupings
||Represents an instance of
the perfected human opportunity, the seed form that has
not yet been altered by the personality. Essentially
this represents a blank canvas for the human Soul, and
will essentially become the repository of all activity
in the realm of physicality.
||Represents the evolution of
the Christos-Seed through time. As the Ego acts
in the moment, the desire and intention that is driving
the outer activity becomes the stuff that adheres to the
Created Seed. During the Life Review, the Created
Seed becomes the fuel that provides vision to the Cherub
in face of the almighty Light of the Sun. If the
vision that unfolds is full of the Love that radiates
at the core of the Sun, the Cherub will smile in the face
of it. Otherwise the Cherub will be compelled to
look away due to the nature of the hidden stuff being
|Dance of Shiva
Dance of Light
the Soul's Original Desire to incarnate, exposed as a
holographic impression that is projected onto the Brow.
The term 'Dance of Light' is a symbolic term indicating
that light is operating as the radiant force that exposes
the color indicated. The light indicated is the
universal consciousness of Shiva, which essentially remains
hidden from our outer awareness--though radiant within
the 3rd Eye. When the Dance of Color in the 3rd
Eye matches even a portion of the Dance of Light in the
Brow, it indicates the function of Shiva experiencing
Self. Shiva delights in the revelation of hiding,
and discovering himself as the Creation. Thus, it
is a dance.
|Dance of Life
Dance of Color
the Created Seed
expression--being the culmination of the Soul's manifestations
throughout Life--as a holographic presentation on the
Brow chakra. The term 'Dance of Color' is a symbolic
term indicating that light is operating on a substance
which reflects the color indicated. Light is absorbed
into the substance either by design or representing a
shadow, essentially an attachment that needs to be released.
The Dance of Life interpenetrates with the Dance of Shiva
in the Brow, and the union of these 2 vibrations then
exposes the holographic difference.
||Represents the universal cosmic
masculine force that is indicated when the Sun is the
dominant force. At the equinox in Spring, the day
and night are exactly the same length of time. Every
day after this event up until the equinox in Autumn, the
day force will dominate. Therefore, for half of
the year, the day force dominates. For the other
half of the year it is the night force that dominates.
At the spring equinox, when the day and night forces
are equal, there is an opportunity to extract the quintessence
of the work accomplished in the day into the seed thought
to be worked on in the night.
||Represents the universal cosmic
feminine force that is indicated when the Moon is the
dominant force. At the equinox in Autumn, the day
and night are exactly the same length of time. Every
day after this event up until the equinox in Spring, the
night force will dominate. Therefore, for half of
the year, the night force dominates, and for the other
half of the year it is the day force that dominates.
At the spring equinox, when the day and night forces are
equal, there is an opportunity to architect a plan of
operation, based on the inner work manifested during the
night, into a plan that can be actualized during the day.
|Drop of Divine Nectar
Divine Nectar enters through the Bindu
chakra and gets rarified in the Brow at the moment
of birth. The Light interpenetrating the 3 Forehead
chakras reflects off the Brow and resonates in the Pineal
Gland where the cosmic consciousness of Shiva is drawn
down. This sets up a repeating effect when the reflection
is again shown down upon the Brow. The Divine Ambrosia
then is rarified in the Brow and becomes the spark of
life that ignites the Soul into individuality. As
the Divine Nectar then drops into the central Heart at
the moment of birth, it animates the physical vehicle
of the Soul with an imprint of the individual blueprint
||Represents the Water that is
drawn up from The Earth through the Reservoir of Experience
(manifesting in the lower chakras), and deposits in the
pool of choice
located in the Shoulder-Blades chakra. This karmic
drop represents our connection to all others as well as
to our own past and future incarnations. In a relative
sense, the individuals visible in our current incarnation
reflect characters in our future and history, making the
moment fundamental in our evolutionary process (see
|Drop of Mind
||A term used to represent a drop
of the essence of the lower
mind, as affected by the lower
desire and lower
||Generally this represents
contact with the collective mind of humanity, the sum
total of all minds or the intelligence emanating from
that. Specifically, this can be a reference to the
mind since it is united with that collectivity.
||Represents a condensation of the
transformed Shakti force that congeals in the Wheel of
Emanation. As the chi-energy is circulated in the
lower chakras, the Shakti force is drawn through the Perineal
chakra and is converted to sexual energy by the yang channel.
The Kidney chakra forwards this sexual force to the Navel
chakra where through infusion with the chi-energy of the
functional channel the red drop congeals in the central
Wheel of Emanation.
||Represents a condensation of
the Shiva force, which congeals in the pineal gland due
to the functioning of the higher faculties. As the
circulation of chi-energy in the lower chakras is purified
such that the red drop condesnes in the Wheel of Emanation,
it triggers an activation of the pineal gland where the
white drop congeals and drips down the central channel
towards the Heart.
|Represents the masculine (yang)
energy of the secondary chakras that run up the back of
the body, extending from the crossover point at the perineum,
to the crown and on to the crossover point at the roof
of the mouth.
|Also called the Emotional Channel,
this channel represents the feminine (yin) energy of the
secondary chakras that run down the front of the body,
extending from the crossover point at the roof of the
mouth (Palatine chakras) to the crossover point at the
| Additional Groupings
||This condition refers to where
one house in the
framework can have only one of 2 possible values.
These Houses essentially represent the combined energy
of the 2 cards that inhabit it, where the primary card
will be dominant and the card that shares that House will
be subordinate. Along with the fixed cards, these
cards are not members of the karmic wheel and essentially
represent the anchor points at the hub of the wheel that
connects our evolutionary process to the universe as a
||This condition refers to a situation
in which one house
in the framework can have only one possible value.
The cards that are fixed remain in the same house
no matter how many times the deck is quadrated.
Along with the binary state cards, these cards are not
members of the karmic wheel and essentially represent
the anchor points at the hub of the wheel that connects
our evolutionary process to the universe as a whole.
|Pool of Love
||An etheric body of Living Water
that resides at the center of the Heart. Essentially
it is connected to the Crown through an etheric network,
or energy grid, that somewhat resembles a funnel when
fully activated, filling the expanse of the pool.
It is through this axis at the center of the Heart that
humans contact each other as the energy flows out the
right hand and in through the left. Holding hands
is an effective example.
|Pool of Karma
||Represents a reflection of the
physical body, the Water that is drawn up from Earth to
house the Soul incarnation. This Water originates
in the Root chakra, reflecting the karmic patterns of
the Soul history. Through a system of physiological
processes, the pool of karma connects with the pool of
choice in the Shoulder-Blades chakra (Anahata), and provides
the substance through which contact with humanity is realized.
When the individual does the work to harmonize the patterns
thus reflected, the Soul vibration rings throughout the
body, which draws up the divine Shakti substance to the
pool of choice in the Heart.
|Pool of Choice
||Represents a Holographic projection
of the activity manifesting in the pool
of karma as it outpictures in 3D space.
|Ray of Life
represents the aspect of Divine Will, the force of Spirit
that propels consciousness into manifestation.
|Ray of Love
represents the ability and need to create forms given
the radiant nature of energy. The Mother represents
the realm through which all forms conceive, gestate and
fulfill life within the cosmic scheme of creation.
|Ray of Wisdom
The Created One
represents the spark of Creator as an indwelling form
of Spirit within all of manifestation. This is a radiant
force that pulsates within all physical form, providing
the building blocks with which more complex forms can
come into being. Awakening to the understanding
of this radiant force creates a direct link to the Mother,
and doing so reveals a form of intuitive communication
which allows for the perfected, completed form to evolve
||Represents the Solar Book, or
Natural Order book described by Richmond. The term
'Sun' has been applied to the name to indicate that it
relates to the 'Solar' book. The term 'Spread' has
been applied to the name to indicate that this orientation
of cards is purely mechanical, devoid of individual magnetism.
In other words, it is static, and will not change regardless
of which 'Card' is analyzing it.
||Represents an independent
solar spread developed by quadrating the cards (see the
Solar Book). Each time
the deck is quadrated, a new Rising Spread will be exposed
as a function of movement upon the Karmic Wheel.
This spread represents the active energy that responds
to the social and environmental factors conditioning life.
||Represents an independent solar
spread developed by quadrating the cards (see the Solar
Book). Each time the deck is quadrated, a new
Moon Spread will be exposed as a function of movement upon
the Karmic Wheel. This spread represents the passive
force that congealed the collection of patterns exposed
through the rising experience.
||The combination of the sun
spread, moon spread and rising spread indicated for a particular
quadration of the deck of cards. The Oracle zero
Chart represents the Birth Chart for an individual, representing
the qualities that will be effective for one’s entire
life. By infusing the astrological Sun, Moon and
Rising signs over the Birth Chart, an individual's magnetism
can be infused into the reading.
||The card within the Sun
Spread which is assigned to the day of birth for the
individual. This card represents the overall expression
of the individual based on their day of birth. Additional
factors will be infused into the reading based on the
individuals Sun, Moon and Rising signs respective to the
astrological natal chart.
||Represents the house (card
location) that the Birth card appears in the Rising spread.
||Represents the card that appears
in the Birth Card house (card location) in the Rising
The Trinity of Mind
- Me, Myself and I
From the perspective of duality, the fundamental concepts
of Cherub and Ego are terms used to represent the level of consciousness in operation when analysing the rising and moon spreads especially. As a generality, the moon spread is reflective or our subjective, psychic orientation, whereas the rising spread is representative of our conscious, objective orientation. As might be expected, an integration of the objective and subjective viewpoints would be necessary to properly analyze any of the spreads, especially the sun spread.
The cherub is essentially the transcendent aspect of self which responds to the perceptive functions of our makeup. As a generality, this attitude is most prominant when analysing the moon spread. Also, the state of mind most associated with this orientation is the Me (why did that just happen to me?). The perceptive functions are in operation prior to any conscious recognition of the stimulus, however as an after-affect the consciousness tends to qualify the perceptive impulse in a mundane or concrete way.
The ego, on the other hand represents our conscious involvement with regards to our movement through time. As a generality, this attitude is most prominant when analysing the rising spread. Also, the state of mind most associated with this orientation is the I (Look what I just did!). We make choices in a conscious, thoughtful way and from that we expect to reap the rewards of our effort. Often though, these choices are not always brought up for conscious review, and in those moments we are merely operating in a habitual way based on a decision we made in the past.
- Analyzing the Fundamental Relationships (As Above
- So Below)
From the perspective of duality, the fundamental concepts
of Cherub and Ego are used to represent our level of consciousness with respect to each of the sun, moon and rising spreads. Our card falls into the associated chakra in each of the spreads, and the general qualities associated with the function relative to that chakra would be indicated.
In each spread, the framework is divided into 7 columns or chakras with the 4th chakra in the center. There is apairing of the columns on the right side of the central channel with a counterpart on the left side. In general, activity in the lower chakras is identified with the activity of the ego, while activity in the upper chakras represents the realm of activity of the cherub.
However, there is no guarantee that if your card resides in the upper chakras in one of the spreads you will always respond from the aspect of self called the cherub. If the ego is prominant in an individual who has their card in say, the 6th chakra, they will operate theough the reflective quality of their 2nd chakra lower desire. Of course, the opposite could be equally true. A person who has their card in the 2nd chakra will always have the opportunity to work in a reflective way through identification with their original or higher desire.
For this study, the Cherub reflects the Higher Mind, the fundamental component of unconscious perception that apprehends information in advance of our conscious awareness. Essentially this represents the aspect
of self that is poised in the steady state of universal
consciousness, ready to receive the subtle signals generated by the physical senses and the intuitiion in response to the moment. The 2 functions identified here are the perceptive functions of sensation and intuition.
It must be noted here that the perceptive functions are not necessarily of a higher nature. Rather, it is merely a reference to the ability and operation of working with unconscious content. There is no guarantee that each person will work with this content in a meaningful or beneficial way. In fact the opposite is equally possible. For example, a person who raises their subjective desires and ideas above rational cold hard facts will likely suffer as a result.
For this study, the Ego is reflective of the Lower Mind, the fundamental component of consciousness that cognizes the tangible, physical world. In general, this represents the aspect
of self that responds to and makes sense of the the moment in a purposeful (or habitual) way. The 2 functions identified here are the judging functions of thinking and feeling.
As with the perceptive functions, there is no way to assess a persons qualities merely based on if their card is associated with one of the jusging functions. A person with a strong thinking function could be not only a great thinker, but someone who structures their life based on the customary morals of the social code, essentially a model citizen. Though obviously, the opposite could also be true. The person could instead have a conniving, cheating mindset not based on morals but rather on their own personal desire with very little care for others.
Counterparts - Analyzing the Sun, Moon and Rising spreads
When analyzing any of the spreads, the upper and lower chakras
are in harmonic balance via the dividing line in the
center of the heart. The upper group of chakras
is here termed the Spiritual Self, essentially the Cherub, while the lower group
of chakras is here termed the Physical Self. Each
chakra of the Spiritual Self has its counterpart in
the Physical Self, as grouped below:
- 7th - 1st chakra pair - This pair of chakras represents
the function of Intention underlying the individual
- 6th - 2nd chakra pair - This pair of chakras represents
the function of Desire operating in the individual
- 5th - 3rd chakra pair - This pair of chakras represents
the function of Will (Mind), and represents the faculty
- 4th chakra - This chakra is divided into 2 parts
by what has been called the veil:
- The Cherub - Represents the upper portion of the
4th chakra along with the 3 upper chakras
- The Ego - Represents the lower portion of the
4th chakra along with the 3 lower chakras
effect of the upper spiritual chakras being the 7th, 6th,
5th and 1/2 of the 4th chakras. The Spiritual Self
represents the holographic structure through which the
Physical Self becomes manifest. While the Soul is
preparing for incarnation, it makes agreements with Creator
relative to what it hopes to accomplish (Desire) with
the incarnation, and what it is intending to give in exchange for the opportunity to evolve.
When the birth contract is complete, the cosmic consciousness
of Creator is then infused into the request,
and the Ego is conceived. During the gestation
period and throughout life, Intention acts as the fuel
that feeds the Ego evolution; a movement meant to merge the Ego with Soul.
Represents our counterpart
in Spirit as experienced through our physical senses,
or the combined effect of the upper 3 physical chakras—being
the 4th, 5th and 6th chakras. The higher self is
not limited by 3D reality where individuals appear to
be separated from each other. Since consciousness
tends to be grounded in the lower dimensions, contact
with the higher self will typically be accomplished through
meditation or contemplation on the subtle nature of Love
(via 4th chakra), with the focus on how that love works
to create all that exists.
source of the impulse motovating the Soul incarnation.
Based on the Desire of the Soul to approach the Creator,
the Will necessary to do the work required was agreed
upon during the negotiations of the birth
contract. Thus, from the vantage of Spirit,
the Original Will represents a complete picture of
the fulfillment of the birth request, and acts as a channel
through which cosmic consciousness (Shiva) can operate
as the creative force propelling the Soul through time.
Higher Will is essentially a harmonic of the unconditional
love that permeates the universe. It is exposed
through the pool
of love that resonates in the Heart. When the
Ego acts in accordance with the Cherub, the pool
of karma (1st chakra) comes into harmonic balance
with the pool of
love (4th chakra) and the opportunity for Soul evolution
thus increases as a result.
longing of the Soul to come closer to its perfected state,
the Creator. Universal Desire is indicated as the
desire of Creator to experience Self. To accomplish
this, Creator sends forth a spark of Self into the realm
of physicality. This spark of Creator represents
an individual Soul, and the desire of Creator is that
the Soul gather the experience of physicality and return
with that to source. The Original Desire of Soul,
then, is the attraction toward Creator, exposed as the
longing to experience Creator.
Desire represents the Soul expression of the Original
Desire to incarnate. This Desire operates as an
attractive force that compels the Ego to seek the feeling
of experiencing Creator. Thus, the Lower Desire
resonates the harmonic of the Higher Desire and the Creator
is then revealed through the experience of the moment.
upon effort that Soul will provide in exchange for the
opportunity to come closer to its perfected state, the
Creator. The Original Intention is reflective
of the universal
law of cause and effect. As a function of this
law, the Soul is afforded the opportunity to experience
Creator, and it does so through the effort that
it offers in relation to harmonizing past debts (Choices).
The Original Intention represents the fundamental principal of dualistic balance; as above so below. In it's most pure state, the intention merely listens to the voice resonating in the depths of the backdrop, and responds as a function or it's desire to manifest that destiny.
mind of the Higher Self, or that functioning of mind
that represents contact with the universal cosmic consciousness.
This is essentially the holographic backdrop that overlays
the Soul opportunity in 3D. In the higher mind,
all Souls are connected through the fabric of this holographic
substance. The task for Soul is to raise the Ego
consciousness to that of Soul awareness, thereby building
a bridge that connects the lower self to
the higher self.
From the perspective of the higher
self, the activity of the Ego is clearly defined
in that the created seed is undeniably exposed.
Also, since all higher selves are connected through
the cosmic human, the bridge built effectively connects
the Ego to all other Ego selves, and in the process
dissolves the veil of separation. All are one in the cosmic human,
being the totality of all human beings.
represents the spiritual aspect of the individual self,
reflecting the Original Choice to incarnate (being the
combined effect of the Original Intention, Desire and
Will). This is the heavenly or angelic aspect of
humanity, and represents the facility of the self to know
the difference between right action and wrong action.
The Cherub essentially represents the fulcrum about which
the Ego comes to know the Soul, and through this fulcrum
is made available the Intention, Desire and Will set forth
in the birth contract.
effect of the lower physical chakras being the 1st, 2nd,
3rd and 1/2 of the 4th chakras. The physical Self
represents the effect of the cause set forth by the Soul
in respect to the birth contract, and as such represents
the conduit through which the Soul can come to experience
Creator. In order to do so, however, the physical
incarnation (Ego) awakens in the realm of 3D and quickly
forgets its heavenly counterpart (Cherub). Therefore,
the effort of Ego to align with Cherub becomes the payment
of the Soul to experience Creator.
the Ego Self, or the combined effect of the lower 3 chakras--being
the 1st, 2nd and 3rd chakras. Essentially the lower
self is a reflection of the higher self in physicality,
and by focusing on the intimate physical processes that
make up our 3D world, the higher awareness (or higher
self) will appear 'clothed' in 3D. The appearance
of this higher awareness however does not necessarily
mean that we will be operating in alignment with our higher
self. Even when consciousness has evolved to a high
state of being, if the intent pulsating at the core of
being is manipulative, then the force acting upon 3D will
issue through the lower chakras. In this case, though
the individual may have contact with the higher chakras,
it will bind itself to the lower through the harmonic
that links the higher and lower selves. Also, though
an individual may not have attained the awareness of the
higher self, if they have an altruistic intent in their
actions they will automatically align with their higher
chakra counterpart, and therefore gain contact with their
Ego represents the physical aspect of the individual self,
exposed through the choices made. Individual Choice
is the accumulation of force operating through the Individual
Will, Desire and Intention that make up the
moment. This is the earthly aspect of humanity,
and represents the facility (and requirement) of the self
to choose in the moment. The goal for Ego is to
remember to align with its spiritual counterpart the Cherub.
In so doing a bridge is created that connects the
Soul with Creator.
Intention represents the mental ecology through which the
Ego chooses in the moment. Essentially, this is
the mind of the Ego Self, or that functioning of mind
that connects one to the physical plane manifestations
of Earth via the 5 senses. Through the concrete
aspect of mind, the Ego is bound to the 3rd chakra opportunity
in which the Solar Plexus becomes the arena for Ego activity.
Through the abstract aspect of mind, the Ego can
build a bridge to its opportunity in the 4th chakra where
the intuition can then be developed. As consciousness
is raised to the 4th chakra, the Ego can then discover
the greater opportunity afforded the self due to its 3rd
Also called the Lower Intention, it essentially refers to
the conscious decision-making facility of the Ego, based
initially in the concrete faculty of Mind. When
the Ego is driven by higher aspirations, then the point
of decision-making is raised to the 4th chakra where the
language of intuition is provided through the faculty
of the abstract mind.
desire that permeates the emotional body of the individual.
This desire is typically self-serving, and represents
a function of the individual ego. When the Ego consciousness
raises from 3rd chakra to 4th chakra activity, the individual
desire then begins to align with the original Soul desire,
and the self-serving nature of the Ego then is transformed
towards the altruistic activity of seeking Creator.
Also called the Lower
Desire, it essentially refers to
the feeling that the ego has towards
the characters and events that make up the moment.
When the desire is adjusted towards seeking the Creator,
then the environmental and personal factors that make
up the moment evolve such that the feeling then reveals
the Spirit behind the activity.
Will or motivation that rests at the root of the
Ego choice in the moment. This motivation is at
first represented by the karmic
patterns that are infused into the structural makeup
of the individual Ego. However, over time as the
Ego chooses in the moment, the activity of Soul evolution
provides the opportunity for the release of unwanted patterns,
and the attainment of a more purified state. It
is the adjustment of attitude that provides the opportunity
for Ego to transform these patterns. The effort
applied toward attaining an attitude of acceptance represents
the work necessary to transmute karmic patterns.
Also called the Lower
Will, it refers to recognition of the karmic
patterns that make up the individual karmic
history, and is exposed through the pool
of karma that echoes in the 1st chakra. The
ability to affect these karmic
patterns is greatly influenced by the attitude that
the individual has towards taking responsibility for the
creations that appear in physicality.
