Spirit Mysteries is an online, membership-only Mystery School containing hundreds of hours of courses and thousands of students across the world.
The Spirit Science Source Field series begins here, as we dive into the field by exploring something called the Backster effect!
Cleve Backster was very interested in polygraphs, which was a simple machine that reads our pulse, breath, and blood pressure. It’s been used as a lie detector test in the past but is understood now that it can be easily tricked by slowing down your breath.
Backster, however, used it in another way. He tested the biorhythms of a plant and discovered something amazing! He found that the plant seemingly knew someone else was in the room. He wanted to see if it would respond to pain, so he dipped a leaf in hot water, tapped it, and performed a few other actions that had little to no response.
Then, he had thought of burning it with a match. Immediately, the polygraph recording moved rapidly, as if it was responding in fear. This is incredible! Backster didn’t speak out loud or touch the plant at all; all he did was merely think about burning it....
This episode dives into the deep and mysterious world of the Qabalah, also known as the Tree of Life. This ancient system is a cosmic glyph, said to describe everything in creation with tremendous detail, how the universe comes into being, the structure of our consciousness, and how to live within the natural forces of nature.
Dion Fortune, an adept occultist, and author wrote:
“The curious symbol-system, known to us as the Tree of Life, is an attempt to reduce to diagrammatic form, every force and factor in the manifested universe, and the soul of man; to correlate them one to another, and reveal them spread out, as on a map, so that the relative positions of each unit can be seen, and the relations between them traced. In brief, the Tree of Life is a compendium of science, psychology, philosophy, and theology.”
The information on the Qabalah is incredibly detailed, and in this episode, we begin to unravel its secrets by exploring an overview of its systematic...
As we continue our exploration of the mystical Qabalah, we begin uncovering the meaning of each of the 10 Sephiroth. The ten Sephiroth are not “things”, but rather states of being – divine emanations or outpourings of pure energy, which crystallizes in density as it descends further and further down the tree. Each Sephiroth builds upon each other and is contained in its predecessor. In this video, we explore the depths of each one, and how they are connected!
Now, to understand the 10 Sephiroth we first must take into account the entire Tree of Life, which in Hebrew is called the “Otz Chiim”, though also sometimes written “Etz Chaim”. As a whole, the Tree of Life is a glyph. This is to say, it is a symbol, or a series of symbols within symbols, which is intended to represent the cosmos in its entirety, and further related to the soul of mankind.
The more that this is studied, the more that we see that it is, in fact, quite a remarkable...
As we continue our discussion into the esoteric mysteries of the Tree of Life, this chapter covers a range of topics within the mystical realm of the Qabalah; the basic understanding of Qabalah as a whole the nature of the Hebrew language, and the different kinds of Qabalah systems that exist.
Qabalah translates to “Received Tradition”, or simply “to Receive”, and actually is an ancient esoteric interpretation of the Torah, the first five books within the Old Testament.
These teachings have a very mysterious origin, with some claiming that they were originally received by Moses, while others suggest that it was Abraham who was the first to describe the Qabalah. Regardless of these possibilities, the first actual texts on Qabalah were written in the Zohar in 13th century Spain.
The Qabalah describes the physical world we live in as being a world of outcomes, but not a world of causes. This physical plane we live in is the result of the invisible forces of...
Welcome back to the continuation of the Tree of Life! Today we’re going deeper, exploring the 22 pathways between the 10 Sephiroth on the Tree of Life.
In the Sepher Yetzirah, the most ancient text available on Jewish esotericism, these are described as the remaining 22 paths in the 32 paths of wisdom, which follow the 10 Sephiroth. When looking at these pathways, they would represent the active movement of energy from one Sephira to another. For example, “the path between Kether and Chokmah”; is seen in essence as pure formlessness moving into the first emanation of creation.
The 22 Pathways are most commonly represented by the Hebrew Alphabet, which is said to be a series of sounds based on the 22 most essential frequencies of creation. Through the Sephiroth, these frequencies are said to express the process of creation as it manifests from the incorporeal realms of God all the way down into the physical reality we are experiencing now. This is the very same...
What is Tarot? In Essence, the Tarot is a detailed pictographic diagram of the universe and everything within it, and is based on many ancient teachings and spiritual practices; including but not limited to the Holy Qabalah and the Sacred Toroidal Field.
Tarot encompasses the five elements (physical earth, emotional water, mental air, spiritual fire, and the astral – ether), describing how these five geometries weave together to depict the totality of life experiences and the structure by which the laws of creation are set.
Tarot is a language of symbology, numerology, cosmology, geometry, and art – which fuse together in an intricate web of ideas providing a means by which one’s consciousness can engage, and come to know itself better with. The Tarot then becomes a guidebook through the many different aspects of life and supports a higher understanding of one’s experiences in a deeper, more meaningful way.
Hey there everyone! As you might be aware, Canada just legalized cannabis! As residents of this country, the Spirit Science crew felt there was no better time to make a video all about it!
Appearing in ancient and historical references throughout time, the benefits and practical uses of Cannabis seem to be limitless. From healing to athletic conditioning, see how this original medicine’s resilience has continued to influence our society.
It’s really important that we discuss all of the aspects of cannabis, the positive and the negative, the challenges and the solutions. More importantly, it’s time that we changed the stereotypes around cannabis, what it’s used for, and why.
Historically, Cannabis has been used to provide a wide variety of things, from practical uses like fabrics, ropes and textiles, all the way to medicine and a psychoactive spiritual tool. As civilization spread across the world, cannabis often came with them, and even at the dawn of the...
For nearly countless generations, much of our society has looked at the past and asked: “how did these ancient religions and stories come about”. Why is it that Christianity and the Abrahamic faiths are as large and pervading as they are? Where did they come from? Why are they this way?
The last 100 years has shown tremendous revelations towards answering these questions, with the unearthing of the Sumerian Tablets, and the discoveries that these Abrahamic Faiths are based on writings much older, which comes from Mesopotamia.
In this episode, we see an introduction to the ancient Sumerian creation stories and observe how this pantheon evolves throughout time, leading to a Babylonian creation myth which tells the tale of Tiamat and Marduk, and a tremendous battle in the heavens that leads to the creation of our world, and us.
This episode is only the beginning of a very long discussion, exploring the various accounts and creation myths of the ancient world, and the...
Looking at the ancient tablets, there are a number of ways that they are commonly interpreted today. As we explored in the first episode, there are interpretations accounting for forces of nature, ancient astronauts, and even planets. Today, we take things to a new level, jumping in on one of the most unique interpretations of the story of Tiamat and Marduk, and relating them to planets in the early solar system, which dramatically changed the way our solar system looks, and setting the stage for the reality we experience on our planet today.
This interpretation largely came about when a young boy named Zechariah Sitchin was “called out” by his teacher for questioning the bible as a child, except he wasn’t questioning the bible, but the translations of the bible that seemed to change the phrase “Nephilim” to “Giants” in Genesis 6. Zechariah wanted answers, and upon discovering the Sumerian Tablets, he found his opportunity to find out just...
Part 3 of The Sumerian Epic digs deeper into the theories we established through the previous two episodes. Is it possible the ancient mythic battles of the Gods were actually encoded myths about the creation of the solar system? Today, a great deal of rumors, conspiracy theories, and debunkings exists regarding the legendary planet “Nibiru”, but is there actually any evidence to support the existence of such a planet?
Believe it or not, the search for a distant planet beyond Neptune has actually been going on for nearly 200 years, leading to the discovery of Pluto, and several other astronomical bodies way out in deep space. One of the biggest discoveries as of late has been finding that a large roughly Neptune sized object is actually orbiting our sun in a wide elliptical orbit. With the exception that this planet doesn’t appear to come anywhere near us, the rest of the information available about it does seem to match the descriptions of what we’d be...
