Oakland County, Addison Township, MI 48367, USA
About the Event
This is a community gathering for Adept Initiates who have completed the Empower Thyself Initiation program.
This is the Advanced Divine PowerHouse Spiritual Studies group where, as an initiate, you have the opportunity to explore deeper spiritual teaachings, receive support in your daily practice and ask questions related to the Empower Thyself topics and more advanced spiritual discussions in a supportive and uplifting environment.
We will do a sanctuary meditation together.
Please bring an offering which you feel is adequate as an energy exchange....this can be money (I will put out a donation bowl) or something else that your heart desires.
Remember, the idea of an energy exchange is honoring what you will be receiving and giving something in exchange for that in order to create a flow of energy that supports you in the best way. This has to do, hermetically, with the Universal Laws of:
- Reciprocity (cause and effect) - everything we do and think has an effect, every Cause has an Effect and every Effect has a Cause.
As initiates, we are learning to be "at cause" in the world, rising above the ordinary plane of cause and effect to become the Cause, rather than the Effect. We use this law, along with the others to Create and Master our life.
- Correspondence (as within so without) - creating a favorable internal environment that will be reflected externally (appreciation, honor, gratitude)
As initiates, we are actively engaging with this principle and learning about it every time we do our rituals, meditations and prayers. This is the Universal law of application and manifestation which involves the material, mental and spiritual worlds. Working on all levels, we become more effective creators in our life. Hermeticists view this as one of the most important mental instruments for unveiling the mysteries of the Universe. This principle is also the foundational teaching in all secret esoteric and mystical traditions. The state of our outer world reflects the state of our inner world. This is something to really sit with, think about and work with. This is the reason dedicating time to our personal growth and healing is so important. You can't just work "out there" and expect any lasting change.
- Rhythm (there is always an action and a reaction - a flow - a pendulum swing)
As initiates, we have the opportunity to learn how to master this to achieve a degree of Self-Mastery in which we rise above the swings and stabilize ourselves at the point we wish to rest. This involves use of our Will (and certain practices) to attain a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness which allows us to operate in balance through the process of Mental Alchemy. The first step in that is to identify where it is, on the pendulum swing, we wish to rest. By holding this vision, acting in accordance with it, and taking the necessary steps if one wishes to progress in their ability to live this way, we can start to move into this level of Mastery.
