The Physical Body and the Psychic Body

Join us this Sunday for a Zoom call to discuss these important topics!

Which came first, the psychic body or the physical body?

Significant portions of our studies are devoted to the understanding of the psychic body, its faculties, and its role in our spiritual development. This is not without reason, as this understanding is foundational to much of the other work that we Rosicrucians pursue, which includes, but is not limited to, the development of the psychic centers, the practice of Rosicrucian healing techniques, and projection of the physic body.

An article titled ‘The Physical Body and The Psychic Body’ (Rosicrucian Forum, 1999, Vol. 69, No. 3) will set the stage for this month’s online session. This article presents Rosicrucian knowledge about the relationship between the physical and the psychic body and serves as a wonderful primer for further exploration into this subject. 

We hope that you are able to find some time in the coming days to review your studies on this fascinating and important topic, to consider experiences you may have had as a result of your practice of the exercises offered in the lessons, and to even prepare some questions you may want to bring to the discussion.

Rosicrucian and other techniques for Protection

This month’s article focus is on the article titled :‘Protect Yourself’.  You can find it in the Rosicrucian Forum, no. 4, Vol 70, from the year 2000. Join us on Sunday, December 27th, at 3:00p.m., for a discussion of this topic.

Rosicrucian students of mysticism often ask how to maintain mental, emotional, and psychic safety, in a world where we are frequently bombarded with negativity that challenges our ability to remain grounded and disciplined Rosicrucian students. How does the Rosicrucian student stand firm in such an environment, without succumbing to despair? How can we avoid falling into similar behavior patterns that would only help to perpetuate the negativity we wish to rise above? What are some techniques we can use to maintain, or even bolster, our emotional and psychic defenses as we go about our daily work?

We invite you to consider these questions over the coming days. Take some time to consider what techniques, Rosicrucian and otherwise, that you would use to protect yourself.  What can you do on all levels of your being to make yourself a more effective Rosicrucian student in your daily interaction with the world around you?

Best Wishes for Peace Profound,

Enneadic Star Pronaos

A Rosicrucian Understanding Of Thought

Sunday, September 27th, 3 pm. PST

We are all familiar with the word thought and its basic meaning. The terms thought and think are constant fixtures in our everyday speech indicating that thought is a critical faculty of our daily functioning. However, what do we know of its actual attributes, capabilities, and the implications of developing a profound ability to harness the power of thought?

For our September Zoom meeting we will read an article by Past Imperator Ralph M Lewis titled ‘Light and Thought Waves’ (Rosicrucian Forum, 1966, Vol 37 No 3). In this article, Fr. Lewis examines the principle of thought from the perspective of physics, namely speed and transmission rate. He contrasts thought with the known physical attributes of light and cites results from Rosicrucian research into the attributes of thought and thought transmission.

In preparation for our meeting, we invite you to reflect and meditate on the nature of thought. Some questions you may ask yourself are:

Is thought an energy? Can thought travel faster than light?

Does thought differ from light as understood in physics?

Are there space-time restrictions that thought itself may be subject to?

This session will be the first of a two-part series on the subject of thought. October will continue with a study of thought projection as examined by Past Imperator H. Spencer Lewis.

Best wishes for Peace Profound!

Zoom Group: Entering the Silence, 2 pm, July 26

empty-gothic-building-hallway

This month’s Zoom group has moved July 26 (the fourth Sunday).

Most of us are familiar with the term ‘Entering the Silence’ which has often been used in the context of meditative and self-help practices. This term can be taken to mean different things, however, what does it mean to the Rosicrucian mystic? In this month’s Zoom Group, we will discuss an article written by past Imperator Ralph M. Lewis that examines what this term really means for the Rosicrucian student’s mystical practice.  What is mystical solitude?  You can read this article in the Forum Vol. 89 Number 2, 2019  (Please read this article before the meeting.)  Forums are available online in the member’s only section.

We invite you to consider the various contexts in which you have heard this term and also what this term means to your work as a Rosicrucian student.  Does this apply to meditation, or does it apply only to silent retreats?  Or both?  Any other meanings?  Are there health benefits to Entering the Silence?

Zoom Group: The Rose and Cross, 2 pm, June 21

rose.cross.dat.rosaThe symbol of the Rosicrucians is that of a rose in bloom set in the center of a golden cross. The meaning of our symbol is discussed more than once in our studies, however, it is always beneficial to have a return look at this eminent symbol and to reflect on the meaning it seeks to convey to us.

Review of April Zoom Session on Water Glass Exercise

water.glassOur recent online group session consisted of a review of the highly important Rosicrucian exercise known as the magnetization of water, which can be found in the early stages of our monographs.

Fraters and Sorors who attended offered valuable insight about their experience with this potent exercise and it’s effectiveness in providing a sense of calm and a feeling of re-grounding as well as recharging and rebalancing effects. One Frater specifically addressed its great value when used as part of our practice of attuning with the Ègregore of the Order. A Soror also stated that one of its effective applications can be used for strengthening and protecting the body against environmental toxins.
