The Perfection of Lebanah

February 1, 2, 3, 2019

Physical Expression

To be healed you must be made whole. This involves the completion of your several subtle vehicles of expression achieved by attuning consciousness to higher levels of awareness and fixing the essence of the experiences in your physical vehicle. Over time the goal is to master this rising upward.

Your personality and its physical expression are an intricate web of related vibrations. In a sense, you form a distinct color and tonal pattern. Through specific and delicate attunements with higher forces, you can transform and advance your pattern of being and expression. You can do this by establishing more perfect coordination with the innumerable living transpersonal forces that hold specific higher vibratory rates in relative stability.

Direct experience of the higher states requires a subtilization of your physical body – the techniques you will experience during this retreat will increase the frequency of your body to this end.

In this sixth program, in a series of seven retreats, we will link specific vibratory rates in our personal vehicles with their cosmic counterparts – affecting rapid and profound changes. We will use a combination of Tattvas, Major Arcana Tarot Keys, Minor Arcana Tarot Keys, specific tonal sequences, pranayama, and integrative meditations.

This weekend we will activate the Lebanah (Moon) force at the pituitary center in an intense, constructive and positive way. Lebanah or Higher-Psychic force links us with the unified field behind all manifest forms – it is the First Matter of the spiritual alchemists. Once the subtle substance that connects life is experienced, we can use it to access higher spiritual guidance.

Once we understand the essential homogeneity of all forms we can reshape or personal vehicle to allow it to receive and express higher and more intense spiritual forces. The reproductive forces are lifted and harnessed to integrate higher spiritual images and ideals into our subtle and gross vehicles.

Through purified and consecrated attunement to Lebanah consciousness we can:

·         Experience the personality as an objective object and observe its repetitive patterns.
·         Realize that all forms of personal expression are alterable
·         Enhance our feeling of unity with life.
·         Expand our understanding and experience of Telepathy – the directly shared states of consciousness with others.
·         Experience the Christ forces accurately reflected in the center of your personality

When these experiences are integrated, we will become more powerful personal expressions of the unifying and harmonizing forces – which the world so desperately needs.

The rigor and intensity of the program is necessary to leave a permanent imprint on the soul. If you are called to this act of service, I welcome you to attend.
