It is the Spirit inside us that knows everything

The question of spirit and matter is infinite for, in other forms, spirit and matter are to be found everywhere: as man and woman, positive and negative, emissive and receptive, heaven and earth. Nothing is more important than these two principles, and if we are to avoid attaching undue importance to one of them to the detriment of the other, we have to understand the proper place and role of each.

Human beings always have a tendency to go to extremes: either they consider that only the spirit is important and this leads them to neglect matter, or they are only interested in matter and they neglect the spirit. And this is what is happening today.

What is it that makes some men and women so extraordinarily attractive?
People are only concerned with matter and, as they do nothing to imbue it with spirit, it remains inert and inanimate, whereas, if they put some life, some spirit into it, it could be highly expressive. What is it that makes some men and women so extraordinarily attractive and expressive? It is the spirit within them, the spirit that animates their matter.

Even I, such as I am here on earth… I know very little; I see very little; I am nothing at all. But sometimes I realize that, far from my brain, far from my physical body, my spirit – or, if you prefer, the entities that dwell in me – are seeing and feeling things. How often I have felt this!

My spirit whispers a few words in my ear
I cannot read people’s minds, I am not clairvoyant, but the being that is always there behind me or inside me knows everything that happens to you or in you: he knows exactly what you are thinking and all about your worries and problems and, sometimes, by chance or just for fun, he whispers a few words in my ear.

Then someone will come to me after a lecture and say, ‘How did you know what was worrying me? What you said in your lecture gave me exactly the answer I needed!’ The truth is that I knew nothing about it, but there is someone within each one of us who sees everything, knows everything and can do everything.

We are here, within the four walls of this room, but our spirits are everywhere; this is why we must give them more and more opportunity to manifest themselves through us.’

Love and Healing

Many of our friends and family all over the world are deciding to leave and return to the spirit world at this time. Sometimes we feel helpless or hopeless and think we are unable to do anything to help. I am here to remind you we can. We are more powerful than we think. Our love and power to create have no limits. We are connected similar like the remote control to your TV. You may not see it but it’s there.

Let’s send love and healing intent to all who decide to stay; and love, light, peace and return to join the supreme creator God to all who are choosing to join the spirit world. This intention and action is powerful enough to make a positive impact.

Namaste, the Divine and powerful me mirrors the Divine and powerful you. It is time to remember who you are. With Love and Compassion, Malena

The Planet Mercury, Symbol of The Philosopher’s Stone, Part 1/6

Alchemical treatises explain that, in order to obtain the Philosophers’ Stone symbolized by Mercury, the adept has to begin their work exactly as the Sun enters Aries and the Moon enters Taurus, for the Sun is exalted in Aries and the Moon in Taurus. Gemini, the next sign in the zodiacal circle, is the home of Mercury.

Thus we have the three signs of Aries (the Sun), Taurus (the Moon) and Gemini (Mercury), which follow each other in order to show that it is the union of the Sun and the Moon that produces the child, Mercury. The trio of Sun, Moon and Mercury is found in other signs of the Zodiac as well but, for the time being, we shall consider only these three very significant signs, Aries, Taurus and Gemini.

The glyph of Mercury is composed of the disc of the Sun, the crescent of the Moon and, to indicate their union, the plus sign (+). The glyph of Mercury, therefore, is simply the union of Sun and Moon.

The Sun and the Moon give birth to the child, Mercury, the Philosophers’ Stone. But the true Philosophers’ Stone sought by alchemists is, in reality, a symbol of the transformation of man.Alchemists work with the Sun and the Moon, that is to say, with the two principles of will and imagination and it is thanks to the work of the two principles that they are capable of transmuting their own matter and becoming, symbolically, as radiant as the Sun and as pure as the Moon.

It is no coincidence that Mars is domiciled in Aries and Venus in Taurus, for it is by working with the Sun and the Moon, that is to say with the masculine and feminine principles, by sublimating their sexual energy (Venus) and the dynamic, active force of their will (Mars), that an alchemist obtains the spiritual powers symbolized by Mercury, the magic agent.

The Knights Templar figure Baphomet
In the tradition of the Knights Templar, this magic agent was represented by Baphomet, that monstrous figure which led many people to believe that the Templars worshipped the Devil. Others called the magic agent ‘Azot,’ a word that is formed of the first letter of the alphabet in Latin (A), Greek (Alpha) and Hebrew (Aleph) and the last letters of the same three alphabets, Z (Latin), O (Greek) and T (Hebrew), and which signifies that the magic agent is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
