Clairvoyance: Physical and Spiritual

“The word ‘clairvoyance’ means ‘clear seeing.’ … In the glossary of the Society for Psychical Research, the term is defined as: ‘the faculty or act of perceiving, as though visually, with some coincidental truth, some distant scene; it is used sometimes, but hardly properly, for transcendental vision, or the perception of beings regarded as on another plane of existence’.

“Mrs. Henry Sedgwick, a distinguished writer on the subject of psychic phenomena, in one of her reports to the Society for Psychical Research, says: ‘The word clairvoyant is often used very loosely and with widely different meanings. I denote by it a faculty of acquiring supernormally, but not by reading the minds of persons present, a knowledge of facts such as we normally acquire by the use of our senses. I do not limit it to knowledge that would normally be acquired by the sense of sight, nor do I limit it to the knowledge of present facts. A similar knowledge of the past, and if necessary, of future facts may be included. On the other hand, I exclude the mere faculty of seeing apparitions or visions, which is sometimes called clairvoyance.’

“The above definitive explanation of the term clairvoyance agrees with the idea of the best authorities. … I personally accept this definition as both scientific in form, and as agreeing with the facts.” ~William Walker Atkinson

Clairvoyance Means

What clairvoyance means has been better defined since Atkinson and Mrs. Sedgwick wrote their opinions. While the general definition found in major dictionaries such as Merriam-Webster remains vague, and open to interpretation, we now have many other words that help narrow it down. So while Sedgwick says she doesn’t limit clairvoyance to sight, we now have other words for similar abilities that use other senses. Clairaudience is the same ability but through the sense of sound. Clairgustance is the ability to taste something without having to have physical contact with it. So we can limit clairvoyance to a psychic version of sight. While it can still mean seeing things that happened in the past or will happen in the future, it is generally considered to be about the present.

Clairvoyance Examples

While we can certainly find many examples of professional psychics seeming to have clairvoyant experiences, we need to take those with a grain of salt. The simple fact is that while there are real psychics, the vast majority of the professionals are frauds. It is better to look at examples of these psychic abilities happening with people who did not plan for it or expect it.

An example that shows up in the news occasionally is that of a mother suddenly getting a vision of her child being in some kind of trouble. Another would be the homeowner who suddenly sees his house on fire and rushes home to find it is true. If you see a plane crashing and cancel your flight, only to hear later that it does crash, that too is clairvoyance. Continue reading “Clairvoyance: Physical and Spiritual”

Advanced Spiritual Man from the Stars

“This was the land from whence man came; the Great One came from Zaidor. The people who came with Nadhi were wise in the ways of the seasons and in the wisdom of the stars. The read the Book of Heaven with understanding. They covered their dead with potters clay and hardened it, for it was not their custom to place their dead in boxes.

“Those who came with the Great One were cunning craftsmen in stone; they were carvers of wood and ivory. The High God was worshiped with strange light in places of great silences. …

“They made eye reflectors of glass stone, which cured the ills of men. They purified men with a strange metal and purged them of evil spirits in flowing fire. …

“Who taught men the secret of writing and numbers, and the measurement of the years? … Who taught the preservation of the body? That the soul might commune with the living, and that it might be a doorway to the Earth? Who taught that light is Life? Who taught the words of God, which spoke to men and hid things from them which stood in the place of Truth for those with understanding? … Who taught that beyond the visible is the invisible, … and all things are linked together in one?” The Kolbrin Bible (Man:1:12-26)

The Land From Whence Man Came

This and the many other questions in this chapter and book of the Kolbrin Bible are not answered. That is probably intentional. The questions are asked to make us think and solve the problems ourselves, given that anyone reading this is probably a spiritual student with sufficient knowledge to figure it out.

Starting with this beginning question, we will find many conflicting answers if we limit ourselves to the physical realm. Does it mean the very first man as represented in the allegorical tale of Adam and Eve? Does it mean the former home of those who were the ancestors of the spiritual group that wrote this book? Neither of those questions can be answered with anything but speculation. But if we go beyond the physical, we come up with a different and definitive answer.

Before man was a physical being, he was pure spirit. As such, he lived in advanced spiritual dimensions higher than the physical one. Whether that dimension was heaven itself, or a lower spiritual one doesn’t really matter. The point is that it was a land of spirit, not matter. So the answer to the question is that man came from spiritual realms, and the purpose of the question is to remind us of that fact, for so many have forgotten it.

Advanced Spiritual Men, Wise In the Wisdom of the Stars

That these people were wise in the ways of the seasons and the stars can also be interpreted in the same two ways, physical and spiritual. Some would interpret it in a physical sense and say that it indicated these people came from the stars. In other words, they were aliens who came from another planet. In fact, many interpret the Kolbrin Bible overall as being about aliens from other planets come to earth. That is an interpretation that is based on a universe that is all matter. Yet the Kolbrin Bible clearly has many references to the spiritual. When we interpret this in a spiritual way, we get something very different.

The sun and the stars act as gateways or portals between the physical realm and the spiritual ones. Not that you can physically travel to those dimensions by going through the stars. It is more that the higher realms communicate with the lower ones using spiritual light that travels down to physical worlds through the stars including our sun. So saying these people who originated in the realms of spirit are “wise in the wisdom of the stars,” means that they have spiritual knowledge and spiritual wisdom. It has nothing to do with aliens.

Cunning Craftsmen

People who have advanced spiritual knowledge are not just able to function better on a spiritual level, they are also better on the physical. Generally speaking, they are more creative and more artistic. A materialistic person might be a carpenter. The spiritual one is the architect. Materialistic people might turn clay pots on a wheel. The spiritual one designs unique pots when he does the same. Not only unique but also following the laws of divine proportion and harmony1.

In more recent times, such people designed the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe. They also designed many ancient buildings such as the pyramids of Egypt and the great buildings of Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. In fact, most great artists and designers are at least partially awakened spiritually.

Reflectors of Glass Stone

Saying that these advanced spiritual people made reflectors of “glass stone” doesn’t sound very impressive. It is, however, very meaningful when you know about the light from the spiritual sun and how to use it to awaken the soul.

The term glass stone doesn’t make much sense since glass and stone are two different things. I believe that what it means is a type of stone, perhaps Obsidian, that they polished until it was as smooth as glass. These primitive mirrors were used to reflect the light of the sun onto the eyes. This had two benefits over looking directly at the sun. First, you are less likely to damage the eyes because they don’t reflect all of the light. Second, the reflected light is polarized which makes it function better for the purpose of awakening the soul.

Who Taught Men?

This chapter then continues by asking a long series of questions. Who taught farming? Who taught writing and mathematics? And on, and on. Many questions, but no answer is given. The answer doesn’t need to be given. The materialistic person would not accept it and the advanced spiritual one already knows it. The answer is the light of God that come to us through the spiritual sun. This light doesn’t just warm us. It also doesn’t just provide energy to awaken our spiritual faculties. It carries information, knowledge. This information and knowledge is absolute, always true and reliable. While it is primarily for spiritual use, physical use can be made of it within limits. No, not for learning the winning lottery numbers! That is a misuse. But the ancient shaman could tell people which mushrooms were safe to eat and which were poisonous. The ancient architects knew how to make building that were not only attractive, but last thousands of years. So the answer is that God taught men by sending truth and knowledge through the spiritual sun. And since we are now in the age of the Sun of Righteousness, that is more true now than ever.

Many are taking advantage of the free college that is now available in some European countries. Taking advantage of the free and infinite education provided by the spiritual sun is far more important.

divine architecture

Divine Architecture of Greece and Nature

“The Pythagoreans believed that everything which existed had a voice and that all creatures were eternally singing the praise of the Creator. …

“The Greek mysteries included in their doctrines a magnificent concept of the relationship existing between music and form. The elements of architecture, for example, were considered as comfortable to musical modes and notes, or as having a musical counterpart. Consequently when a building was erected to which a number of these elements were combined, the structure was then likened to a musical chord, which was harmonic. …

“In constructing their temples of initiation, the early priests frequently demonstrated their superior knowledge of the principles underlying the phenomena known as vibration. A considerable part of the mystery rituals consisted of invocations and intonements, for which purpose special sound chambers were constructed. A word whispered in one of these apartments was so intensified that the reverberations made the entire building sway.” ~Manly P.Hall

Divine Architecture of Music

The ancient Greeks were not the only ones who considered sound, music, and the divine proportions of it to be related to spiritual development. The Greeks got much of their spiritual teachings from the Egyptians. The Egyptians probably got much of their from even older civilizations such as the Babylonians and the people of Atlantis.

The same laws of divine proportion that were used in developing and composing music were used in architecture and other arts. Divine architecture is never based on the whims and concepts of any individual architect. While each building has individuality, the ancients knew that it was always best to use divine proportion. Thus ancient buildings were not just built for function and beauty, but to inspire spiritual growth as well. It just happens that when those laws are followed, you get a building that is beautiful, functional, and lasting. While it is true that most of the ancient Greek buildings now lie in ruins, they have held up far better than any of our modern buildings.

Symphony of Divine Architecture

A harmonious song that follows the divine laws can be played by a single instrument or a small band. It is much more challenging, I think, to compose and arrange such tunes to be played by a large orchestra. Not only must each musician and each instrument be played according to divine proportion, but the entire assembled orchestra must do so together.

The same is true for making s symphony of divine architecture. It is one thing to have a building or two made by the rules of divine proportion, it is much harder to do most of a city that way. I think the ancient Greeks may have succeeded in doing that in ancient Athens. Not just one or two, but nearly all major buildings in the city were built according to the laws of divine architecture. As a result, the entire city had a harmony to it. This harmony helped those who lived their develop their spiritual side. It explains why so many great philosophers came from there.

Divine Architecture in Nature

We couldn’t call these laws of Divine Architecture divine if they existed only in things made by man. The good news is that they are found in nature as well. What is often referred to as the Golden Ratio or the Fibonacci sequence is found often in nature. While it may not always be obvious, sometimes it is. We simply have to look at things a little more closely than usual.

The seed head of a sunflower is a good example. A quick glance may not reveal it, but a close look shows that the seeds form a Fibonacci spiral. Pine cones do the same. The shells of some creatures such as the Nautilus have a similar spiral design. And on a much larger scale, it can be found in spiral galaxies like our own Milky Way.

But it isn’t always spirals. In the human face, the distance between the eyes, nose, and mouth are according to divine proportion. The same is true of most animals. The sectioned body of insects has the same proportions.

It goes beyond the physical realm, also. Naturally, anything properly labeled “divine” is found even more in spiritual realms than in the fallen and distorted physical one. This includes the divine architecture of those dimensions. The music of the spheres found in them follows the golden ration. So do the shapes and proportions of the beings that dwell in them. So one way we help create heaven on earth is to build according to the laws of divine architecture. That would be a good first step in transforming all of Earth into a spiritual world as it was originally.


Siddhartha Begins His Spiritual Journey

“Siddhartha was thus loved by everyone. He was a source of joy for everybody, he was a delight for them all. But he, Siddhartha, was not a source of joy for himself, he found no delight in himself. … Dreams and restless thoughts came into his mind, flowing from the water of the river, sparkling from the stars of the night, melting from the beams of the sun, dreams came to him and a restlessness of the soul, fuming from the sacrifices, breathing forth from the verses of the Rig-Veda, being infused into him, drop by drop, from the teachings of the old Brahmans. Siddhartha had started to nurse discontent in himself, he had started to feel that the love of his father and the love of his mother, and also the love of his friend, Govinda, would not bring him joy forever. … The sacrifices and the invocation of the gods were excellent—but was that all? …

“Not to be looked down upon was the tremendous amount of enlightenment which lay here collected and preserved by innumerable generations of wise Brahmans.—But where were the Brahmans, where the priests, where the wise men or penitents, who had succeeded in not just knowing this deepest of all knowledge but also to live it? Where was the knowledgeable one who wove his spell to bring his familiarity with the Atman out of the sleep into the state of being awake. …

“Was not Atman in him, did not the pristine source spring from his heart? It had to be found, the pristine source in one’s own self, it had to be possessed! Everything else was searching, was a detour, was getting lost.” ~Hermann Hesse

Siddhartha Begins His Journey

Siddhartha had grown up in a spiritual family. His father was a Brahman. So he knew the importance of spiritual development. He knew it was necessary. So he practiced his meditation diligently. He prayed and fasted. But eventually, like many today looking around at the conventional churches, realized that these daily practices were not helping him progress. They were doing little more than taking up time and keeping him under control. He mentions at one point that these spiritual practices are doing nothing more than helping one hide from the world. He realized that they did no more than alcohol or drugs do for many. He was little more than a drunk who hid from reality and real spiritual growth in ritual fasting, praying, and meditating.

Siddhartha and Asceticism

So Siddhartha then decides to join a group of ascetics. He gives up his fine clothes and good meals and begins to wear rags ad eat little. He soon discovers that this path isn’t really doing any more than the constant praying and meditation.

Then he hears of Gautama Buddha. Everyone is saying this man has become a true Buddha, an enlightened one, yet has rejected asceticism as the best path to follow.

Siddhartha and Buddha

So Siddhartha, along with his best friend Govinda, leaves the ascetics and goes off in search of this new enlightened one, Gautama Buddha. They find him and listen to him give a public talk. Both Siddhartha and Govinda are impressed with Buddha’s speech and whole personality. He is clearly one who has achieved a high level of enlightenment. This causes Govinda to join the group of devoted followers who pledge to listen to and follow the teachings of the master. Siddhartha, however, does not. He meets with Buddha and explains to him that, while he recognizes that the Buddha is an enlightened one, he has learned from Buddha’s own teachings, that simply listening to the talks of an enlightened one will not bring about his own enlightenment. He must seek enlightenment within himself and not from others. Buddha smiles a faint agreement and wishes him well.

What Siddhartha Learned

We hear so much these days from spiritual people on social media that religion is about hearing other’s experiences, spirituality is having your own. Yet those same people ask others for recommendations of books and videos that can bring them enlightenment. That is doing exactly the same thing as the religious people, just with different books! And following meditation methods with little or no evidence that they accomplish anything except turning people into docile sheeple is no different than the religious people attending weekly services that have become empty ceremony. They are correct in rejecting the empty ceremonies as a path to true enlightenment, but too many of them are simply following a different, yet equally empty, spiritual path.

Siddhartha learned that we must awaken our own spiritual self and learn from that true self. All we can get from books or teachers are methods for doing that. The teachers cannot give us truth, they can only point us in the right direction. And hiding from the world in drugs, booze, or meditation isn’t going to do that.

More to Come

This is only the beginning of Siddhartha’s journey. I’m sure I will have more to say about it as it continues.
