The Spiritual Journey

There are three stages, that we refer to as the Initiations.

 

First Initiation

Prior to first initiation we advise people to have spent some time developing their meditation and concentration, using their breath and subsequently a special mantra. This allows a sense of stillness to grow, which is an essential quality when meditating on the Light and Sound after Initiation.

WhiteFirst Initiation is sometimes referred to as the beginning of the true Spiritual Path, with the revelation of the Thousand Petalled Lotus and is the source of life itself. This has nothing to do with belief or imagination but is a direct revelation of a subtle Energy which can be meditated upon in the form of Spiritual Light and Sound.

This energy has been referred to as the ‘Word’ biblically or the ‘Song of Life’ through mystics such as Kabir. It is important to understand that this energy of Light and Sound is our Inner Teacher and is what guides us to ever greater levels of Consciousness and Stillness.

With the First Initiation into the Light and Sound, our awareness is now beyond the five senses, the limited vision of intuition and the physical creation. We now have access to far subtler Energies. These vibrations of Light and Sound carry with them vast expanses of Space and Stillness and Knowledge of higher forms of the Spiritual Realms.

First Initiation is given through the touch of an Enlightened person, someone who has travelled the path of Light and Sound to its source and have had the ultimate cause of existence revealed to them.

The ‘Grace’ for this energy comes from the Spiritual Hierarchy working through the Enlightened person giving the Initiation. They have been known by various names throughout time but they represent those Spiritual Beings who are able to put us in touch with the Light and Sound within.

The experience of First Initiation can be very subtle or extremely profound, depending on the individual. But most importantly, it is the beginning of a true Spiritual Journey. During the Initiation, which typically takes place over a weekend, you will be fully supported and cared for. We want you to have the best possible environment in which to develop this new form of meditation..

These words were channelled from the Spiritual Hierarchy:

The Divine Spark is given, through touch, by an Enlightened person who links the meditator directly to the Spiritual Hierarchy. They transmit Energy to the meditator allowing them to Resonate with the Light and Sound of higher planes of Consciousness. The access to these Energies is permanent and through the process of meditation one can follow a Path which will lead to incredible discoveries and realizations. This requires both perseverance and dedication which will result in immense Stillness, Peace and Joy.

 

Second Initiation

After a period of time dedicated Meditators can receive Energy to undergo a further, massive, expansion of Consciousness. Although impossible to imagine or describe, you will be taken beyond the limits of your mind. From this amazing new perspective you will realize what you are not, and yet still do not know what you are. Again the Energy we speak of will come directly from the Spiritual Hierarchy.

RedIn literature, this stage has been described as illustrated below:

Now the aspirant prepares himself for the second stage of his journey upwards, but before he is able to enter the higher realms, he has to pass along an incredibly narrow path. The width of this Path is only one tenth of the size of a mustard seed and the mind the size of an elephant.

The second region on the Path of the Masters: whoever applies himself will succeed in piercing the veil which is a creation of his own mind.

While you are Meditating to achieve this State you will be given every possible means of support and assistance from people who have already completed this Path and have devoted their lives to helping others do the same. As well as meditation, there will be opportunities to discuss your realizations and ask questions, so that you feel totally at ease during this amazing time of discovery.

This stage is so vast it has often been confused with Enlightenment but it does not reveal to us our true Identity, despite this formless state giving us a vast increase in our Awareness.

 

Enlightenment

As we write about the final Initiation, we know words cannot possibly convey this Ultimate Revelation. However, we sense that you would still rather we tried.

BlackEnlightenment is given through the Grace of the Spiritual Hierarchy and is an infinite state of awareness with no beginning and no end. It is also a total saturation in the purest form of Love, something far beyond the love we experience in our personal relationships. This is the love that binds the creation together and is one of the most important realisations on attaining Enlightenment.

It is the most natural of all the Spiritual States and yet it is the one most elusive and profound. Having undergone an infinite expansion of Consciousness you will discover on Enlightenment that You have no centre, no bounds and time is non existent.

You are Everywhere at Once.

The illusion of separation has been completely dispelled and so you will see at once the Unity pervading all things. As we write much of our Planet is in turmoil and due to Spiritual ignorance there is immense human suffering. Enlightenment reveals a Divine Love beyond all thoughts, beliefs and religions as it is the direct revelation of God.

When a person meditates to achieve Enlightenment, as before, they will be given full support from people who have already attained this State of Consciousness. As well as time for meditation there will also be time to speak about your realizations and share the joy of your discoveries with others.

 

Grace from the Spiritual Hierarchy

Historically, all States of Consciousness were conveyed by a person who was Enlightened; they were often known as Gurus or Masters. Enlightenments tended to be rare and it was normal for the Teacher to determine when a meditator was ready to receive the Spiritual Energy (often referred to as Grace). This method is still used today and works well for small groups, but presents logistical problems when people are spread Worldwide.

As explained above, the Divine Spark for First Initiation is given (and must be given) by touch. The further States were also conveyed by this method. This would involve the meditator either living in close proximity to the Teacher, or making long journeys to present themselves hoping to receive the Grace. Occasionally, if the aspirant was lucky, a Teacher might visit a particular country and Initiate a large number of seekers.

The Spiritual Hierarchy repeatedly state that this meditation needs to reach the masses. They have produced a wonderful solution to make it easier for isolated meditators to receive the Higher Initiations. The system is called

BLANKET GRACE

This means that at specific times throughout the year, Energy will be available for all those who meditate on True Light and Sound. If they prepare themselves well and their hearts are open, then they can receive this Grace which potentially can propel them to the Higher States of Consciousness.

This eliminates both the need for Human judgement and the necessity for travel. A meditator will advance at a rate that is perfect for them.

All that is required is that they receive the initial Grace by touch. We now have a number of Enlightened people who are able to travel around the World; we hope to be able to reach anyone who has a genuine desire for Truth. Please note: we will still use the method of touch for the Higher States, when it is convenient, as the Initiator can be present and give appropriate advice and support.

We are not the only group that meditates on True Light and Sound; the Blanket Grace will assist all those people who have been Initiated and meditate on these Energies.

From the Spiritual Hierarchy:

The Power and Beauty of the Light and Sound to all true seekers is immense and beyond all Human understanding. It is only by Meditating in this way that the Truth about the Creation can be found. Everyone has the Potential to realize this Power; it is through perseverance and dedication that this Knowledge will be given to them.

Finally, when a person receives the First Initiation they will be told when the Grace will be available and given specific dates and times. For those of you in other groups that meditate on the True Light and Sound please enquire using the contact page. We will be happy to give you this information together with appropriate advice.

We wish to express our immense gratitude to the Spiritual Hierarchy for Their Love of Humanity.

 

Preparation for Initiation

 
When you are Initiated we can never predict what you will see or hear. There exists an infinite set of possibilities.

The reason for this is that it is impossible to know how receptive you will be on the day and more particularly at the time of your Initiation. Additionally the Planes of Consciousness are limitless and each person’s Journey is unique.

To be Conscious of and merge with the Energies, a Meditator must be totally relaxed and open. Any tensions, fears and preconceived ideas will just get in the way. Try to imagine the Light and Sound as perfect Teachers that know exactly what, when and how to teach the pupil. They have infinite patience and will wait as long as it takes for the right moment to resume the Journey and impart Knowledge.

When you Meditate you will have knowledge of your previous session(s). If you hold onto these memories they will impede your progress; you need to relinquish the old in order to receive the new.

The secret is to cultivate the right relationship with the Light and Sound. To be open, appreciative, humble and grateful. To be respectful, never greedy, always accepting. You have to be able to relinquish all control, expectations and judgement.

This is not easy as you will have had to strive hard to achieve success in the world. What we are suggesting is the opposite; Meditation starts when you cease striving and give just up. You may find this uncomfortable at first as it involves letting go and feeling insecure. There will always be an element of fear but with practice this can be overcome.

All progress involves moving from what is known into what is unknown. It is impossible to predict as you have never been there before. It requires courage, determination and perseverance.

As a preparation for Initiation we would strongly recommend that you talk to others who have already embarked on or have completed their Journey. Consider also reading Spiritual books that speak of searching, suffering, discovery and Bliss. By doing this you will take the focus away from yourself and be inspired by the Journeys of other Seekers – their longing for Truth, the hardships they endured and the Wonder of their Experiences and Discoveries.

You will also learn how special and rare a True Spiritual Path is.

When God calls your name, simply reply, “I am ready!”
