In working with the Sacred, one enters the realm of what we
shall call here ‘mentors’ and ‘archetypes’. Mentors are all manner of
ensouled or angelic beings of Light who are in your space to assist you on your
journey. Archetypes are somewhat more difficult to comprehend in our way of
thinking. There are various levels of archetypes, the more mundane definition
being any composite of attributes which is identified in a specific symbology,
and further, repeatedly accessed in a determinate focus by many minds. Under
this umbrella of definition, such divergent forms as ‘Coca-Cola’ and ‘Michael
Jackson’ could both qualify as archetypal presentations. But as we move deeper
into the Presence which encompasses the science of archetypification, we find
much more ancient and powerful archetypal beings. We must use the word ‘beings’
loosely in regard to our understanding, but they are a form of sentience which
has been created in various ways. To further clarify, I have put together a basic definitive of these types:
1) Mundane Archetypes
(non-sentient): Any ‘label’ with which many people can identify, which is
non-living, such as a popular product or value. These are the lowest, most often
violated archetypes. They are usually a creation of mass planetary
consciousness, and thus inertia, and may even carry strong negative charges;
although some can be very positive.
2) Mortal Archetypes: associated
with living or once-living human or animal beings, developed as a result of the
lifetime of that being. This could include anyone from Marilyn Monroe to Hitler,
but not Jesus Christ or Buddha, for although they once lived in the mortal
realm, the presence of their archetype was created before their births.
3) Immortal Archetypes: Here we find
Jesus, Buddha, and a host of other once-living persons such as Horus and Thoth.
While human beings filled these ‘slots’ at one time, the archetypes they
personified and built upon were created by illumined non-incarnated souls long
before these persons lived. Most of the ‘Immortals’ are of a highly refined
spiritual Light, although some have been ‘turned’ by powerfully negative
forces. Ironically, these forces fed from the fears of the sentient
consciousness of this planet.
4) Primordial Archetypes: The most
ancient and removed from our conception of ‘what is’. These are sentient
archetypes which have never been attached to an ensouled being. Their ‘consciousness’
is omni-present and not consigned to a persona or personalization. This
consciousness was created through angelic resonance or ‘sounding’ in the
creational fires of the universe. Some of these Primordials were drawn to this
planet through the Earth’s own creation-resonance; and since then, they have
become mutable with our planetary consciousness. An example of such an archetype
is Sekhmet. She has also been expressed as Ishtar, Innana and Kali; and is
revealed in several other cultural formats. Yet they all represent the same
Primordial archetype. Most ‘Earth descended’ Primordials are not known to
us, for they have not survived the pen of historians.
Primordial archetypes are largely a power, a force of a
specific qualification. To broaden the stroke of the brush in painting you a
picture of a Primordial, we will profile the most dynamic one of our world: ‘Gaia’
or the Earth Herself. Within this planet resides a Primordial being. Her ‘body’
is the planet we live upon. We may speak poetically of the ‘soul of the Earth’,
but in fact we are Her soul; and She our archetypal vessel into Spirit. When
summoning or working with a Primordial archetype, one must first have clarity in
their intent and a measure of balance within their duality. If not, the ancient,
creative forces of these beings will devour the personal shell we fondly call
our ‘identity’. This would be a positive transformation if that soul were
spiritually evolved to the level of accepting such a ‘leap into the void’.
If not, it could be a seriously dis-orienting experience. Thus, it is best to
interact with Primordials with the intent that you are not wishing to draw the
whole being into your experience, but only that portion which your ‘self’
can integrate. As with all sentient archetypes, intent is the program manager of
the cosmic web in which they dwell.
How to Work with the Mentors and Archetypes
There are many ways one may enter the matrix of interaction
with mentors and archetypes. What is given here is a suggested format through
which you may create a link to that matrix and allow your Higher Self to take
you further from that point.
With a mentor, it is a matter of relaxation and summoning.
First you relax your physical system so that you can receive communion from the
Radiant Ones in a deep level of your cellular being and not just in the
Then think of the Higher Lords and feel your love for them and
theirs for you. Once the heart is singing with this Light, you simply call upon
the mentors. Do not qualify your need at first. Allow an association to build,
to move through your inner experience. Then, when you feel this bond take place,
you may state your request (if indeed you have one). Be sure you are prepared to
receive the help for which you are asking, without the personal lens of
qualification you may have applied to it. Mentors of Light will always guide you
toward the essence of the matter, and not the outer form.
Before calling upon an archetype, relaxation is again
important. Once ready for the actual summoning, one should think of the matrix
involved as a ‘temple’ with a specific ‘entry code’ and structure. As
you come to the door of the temple, you request entrance. Once inside, observe
the signs that await you. Archetypes are by nature, hidden in their full
expression from the soul of the seeker. Do not press the issue for full
disclosure. Instead, observe the signs and symbols. If you are not too adept in
visualizing, feelings can be just as communicative. Once you have integrated to
a degree with the ‘temple’, you may see or feel an aspect of the actual
archetype itself. When an archetype is presented to you, open your being and
take that archetype (or archetypal aspect) within you so you become it. Here is
where your personal identity may become a bit slippery. Ask that you be able to
maintain both your Higher Self identity and what is being brought to you by the
archetype in equal balance and parity. Lower self identifications will quite
possibly fall away, at least during and possibly for sometime after the merging.
It is not advisable to try this at first with Primordials, begin instead with
the Immortals. In doing so, the soul entity who is incorporated into the
Immortal archetype will very often help you into a smooth merging with its
archetype. With the Primordials, there is no soul-being to help you, only the
power and vastness of the universal energy form you are interacting with.
This mutable state of oneness with the archetype should last
no more than a few moments. At that point, the archetype moves through you and
into a field in which it takes with it that part of you that needs expression in
its realm. Here you become more involved with your own personal experience in
which you may have revelations on many levels of awareness.
An important note: when the archetype is merging with you, do
not form an attachment to it or to its definition. Simply embrace and release.
In order for true synergy between an ensouled mortal and an
Immortal or Primordial archetype to take place, the Adam Kadmon template within
the human form will become the interfacing mechanism. The ‘Adam Kadmon’ is the original universal prototype for the
human race. After the ‘Fall’ of the Adamic Race the human form was greatly
altered, not so much in appearance but in Light-engendered substance, but
humanity still maintains the program codes for the template of this ‘Sacred
Hue-Mon Being’. Thus, it is through this template that the archetypes link
into our divinity. There are certain points upon the human body where this
interfacing occurs. These links form specific archetypal ‘workings’. The
sacred magick of the Atlanteans and Egyptians amongst others, contained a highly
defined science concerning these interfaces and how to ‘open’ them and for
what purposes. Most of these procedures are not for the un-initiated, but I am
guided to write about it briefly here so that you may receive in
energy-essence the larger scope of our relationship with the archetypes. What
has been presented to you in this chapter concerning them is but a mere slice of
the whole apple, yet it will hopefully serve to give you an overview of the
essence and nature of archetypes both universally and in our lives.
