How to support our spiritual awakening

Spiritual awakening is a goal that everyone seems to be looking for.  Ever since the ice age, people seem to be in quest for a divine union and enlightenment.  There are different ancient rituals performed by different groups of people all over the world. Indigenous cultures that are still existing until now, shows us a glimpse of how ancient people quest on having a deeper understanding of the earth and the universe.

Unfortunately, rituals are considered to be of old-world and not accepted in our culture today.  They are labelled as irrational, superstitious and primitive.  The Church has totally rejected these rituals, quoting them as pagan acts. Through these rituals, people get to understand our journey towards spiritual awakening. 

In the ancient times there were mystery schools dedicated in discovering and exploring the mysteries of life and therefore touching some aspects of spirituality.  These schools flourished in Egypt, Tibet and Persia. 

In Egypt for example, there were two mystery schools:

1. “The Left Eye Of Horus”, here the students were educated for 12 years about all aspects of the feminine part of the brain (the right side) and all the female components of consciousness. They learned about the different emotions, feelings, fears, the positive and negative aspects of the chakras and much more.

2. “The Right Eye Of Horus” which was teaching about the “male” logical part of the brain (located on the left side) and the male components of consciousness.

Ancient Egyptians have toning of special chants and sounds which took place during midnight in different locations like the sacred man-made lake and the secret chamber below the Great Sphinx.  This chanting and sounds stimulates a part of the head that can open up the brain to universal energy and electrical stimulation.  This could unleash or release your psychic gifts and abilities.  Once it has been opened, more psychic and spiritual gifts will be experienced by the person.  Gifts would include intuition, creativity, clairvoyant abilities, and emphatic abilities.

Drumming, for example, can have immense physiological effects. It can increase the heart rate and blood flow, but it can also bring you right into the alpha state. The alpha state is associated with relaxation, euphoria and creative flow. Ritual drumming can help us stay in sync with our own biological rhythms and the rhythms of nature and the universe. Try it yourself, you don´t even need a professional drum, take a wooden box, an empty coffee can or a pot to get started.

There are two fundamental cosmic truth: sound and non-sound. The inner sound only receives manifestation in the outer sound. This is therefore the way.
