INITIATIONS AND ACTIVATIONS

Kalachakra Practice 6

ALTAIR SHYAM

 

“If we keep our devotion strong and direct our mind towards the Kalachakra teachings for today and the following days, we can receive the initiation through the power of our faith and will.”

The Dalai Lama (2017)

This is an exploration of the first part of Chapter 6 in the Kalachakra Tantra by the Dalai Lama. (There will be three parts to this chapter…)

In our path of pathlessness we

  1. Recognize the reality of ordinary life, that beings suffer and wish happiness
  2. Develop great compassion and an altruistic intention to become enlightened to help liberate others and awaken them to their own happiness within
  3. Realize emptiness, let go and surrender to the great unknown, allowing the great river of life to have its own flow in us and through us
  4. Make an intention to receive initiation through our faith and will

Imagine – you are receiving the actual initiation from the physical Christ and the physical Buddha.

You have done this before so you know how to do it again, deeply.

How would you prepare?

What would you do?

You are initially going to receive Seven Seals (the Seven Childhood Initiations)

As you receive these Seven Awakenings in the Kalachakra Tantra the Dalai Lama will go into detail about Our Light Family from the Tibetan point of view.

He describes the Light Family as giving the potential for “generation” and then “completion” in that first you develop clear appearance of the Light Family deities, and that when this meditation is successful it ‘vanishes’ so that all that is left once you surrender and let go is divine, god and goddess and Pure land mandalas like Avalon and Shambhala.

PRACTICE

For practicing the Kalachakra Tantra together we will be doing 15 initiations

SEVEN Childhood Initiations (the Seven Seals) – water, crown, silk ribbon, vajra & bell, conduct, name, and permission

FOUR High Initiations – vase, secret, knowledge-wisdom and provisional word

FOUR Supreme Initiations – vase, secret, knowledge-wisdom and definitive word

If you complete all these there is a final initiation of a Vajra (Diamond) master lord/lady.

It is enough at this point merely to know that the initiations exist and have been done in this way since the time of the Buddha and by the Buddha himself.

These are real initiations that touch the core of your being.

For example, in one of the initiations I experienced real fire and a flame lit in the space in front of me and I burned my hand in it.

In another I experienced the clear light of being and vanished completely.

In yet another I experienced the descent of the Holy Spirit or Bodhicitta into my body.

These experiences are just that, experiences we all have and share to bring us closer to full liberation, love and compassion for all beings. They are neither more, nor less important than the breath we take in and breathe out in every moment.

All is sacred. All we experience is sacred. None is a “better” experience. So please respect all your own experiences, visions and intuitions for the sacred messages they bring to you from the One Light and One Love.

So it is with the Dalai Lamas. Though all incarnations of Avalokiteshvara/Guan Yin, their experiences are also all different.

The Fifth Dalai Lama was “continually absorbed in the wisdom dance that experiences all appearances as pure vision” where many gurus of past ages, mandala deities, buddhas and bodhisattvas would appear directly to him and give him secret transmissions, initiations and teachings.

In direct contrast, The First Dalai Lama, presents the nuts and bolts of the Kalachakra tradition, in straightforward fashion, describing one of the initiations, the vase initiation as being associated with the initiation of a master, as this is the yoga of transforming lust and desire into a force of enlightenment. The masters, he said, regard sensuality as a potential path for enlightenment.

The Second Dalai Lama, again in a different way, received enlightenment through the Kalachakra Yogas from the controversial master Khedrup Norzang Gyatso, called “the Mad Yogi of the Olkha Mountains”.

The current Dalai Lama, has given initiations on many occasions, including in the West, so a Western Kalachakra tradition has also begun to emerge.

I will be posting links of the actual initiations given by the current Dalai Lama as we go. Here is an initial one if you are interested, in English.

Sometimes friends have queried me on the practice of imitating a deity or saint or god and goddess, or taking on their qualities or behavior.

I will leave you with this quote from Our Sister St. Therese, about the practice itself.

Magdalene Painting by Linzy Arnott

“Most of all I imitate the behavior of Mary Magdalene, for her amazing – or, rather, loving – audacity which delighted the heart of Jesus, has cast its spell upon mine.”

-St. Therese of Lisieux

“Inner Stillness and Expanded Consciousness” – Archangel Zadkiel through Linda Robinson

Art: Linzy Arnott

 ***

Message from Archangel Zadkiel ~ August 2017

Transmitted Through Linda Robinson

“Inner Stillness and Expanded Consciousness”

Greetings Beloved Ones,

This is Archangel Zadkiel, along with Archeia Holy Amethyst, and we greet you in Love and Light. Today, we wish to discuss inner stillness and expanded consciousness.

Higher dimensional energy is continuing to reach your planet. This is occurring along with many changes on a global scale.  You may also be experiencing changes in your immediate vicinity. You may even be questioning what you want the next step on your path to be.

Change is a constant. You may find this uncomfortable, or you may welcome it. Whatever your perspective, when you look for the positive aspects of change, this can help you progress and expand your consciousness.

As you focus on potential outcomes of change that can benefit you as well as others, this brings in a higher vibrational frequency that can help you view new possibilities in expanded consciousness.

Expanded consciousness often begins with turning inward and being aware of your Divine Spark and an inner stillness that resides there.

This is the point where you can turn to find guidance when outer conditions are changing around you. Your inner still point can feel like an oasis and safe harbor, and it may feel like your true home.

Your inner still point is where you can receive guidance and contemplate new possibilities in the silence of your Being. This is where you can release the expectations of what others think you should do and, instead, let your heart lead the way to what feels right for you. The noise of the outer world is replaced by the guidance from your inner knowing and the Higher Realms.

As you turn inward, you may become aware of your breath. You may feel your body relax, and gradually your focus is centered on your inner still point, or your Divine Spark that connects you with All That Is.

As you continue to focus on your breath and your inner still point, you become more inwardly centered, and outer circumstances seemingly fall away.

As you bask in the silence of your inner stillness, your awareness begins to rise to a higher level. You may feel bits of inspiration come into your awareness.  This may increase to a gentle flow that could be compared to Light particles traveling through a funnel that is wide at the top and tapers down to a channel of Light particles of knowing.

These Light particles may contain wisdom for your personal ascension path, or they may contain knowledge of universal teachings. These Light particles begin to expand your energy field with new possibilities. A rhythm of ebb and flow of energy develops as your energy field expands and contracts with the Light.

This Light expands out from you to your environment surrounding you. The more you remain in this state, the farther out your energy field will expand. It is as if you have a continuous flow of incoming and outgoing higher vibrational energy, and you can feel that you are in the flow.

When this occurs, you may become aware of higher dimensions and more expanded concepts. What may seem like an either / or concept in the third dimension may appear to have shades or hues of differences at other levels.

For example, the Golden Rule of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you might expand from actions on the third dimension to include thoughts and intentions at higher dimensions. You may become more aware of the circumstances behind external appearances.

When this occurs, you realize that you are tapping into expanded consciousness.

If you find that your concentration wavers, this may be your current awareness adjusting to incorporate your expanded realizations.

As you practice going into inner stillness on a regular basis, you may find that you are receiving new insights more easily. These insights may also begin to come spontaneously as you are going about your daily routine. Anytime you find yourself feeling that you are not tuned in, you can pause and turn inward to experience your inner stillness and feel the expanded consciousness.

Beloveds, we are happy that you are pausing to experience your inner stillness and expanded consciousness. We are with you as receive the Light of inspiration for the greatest good of all.

Know that you are greatly loved.

WE ARE Archangel Zadkiel and Archeia Holy Amethyst

…and WE surround you with Love

And so it is.
