 My devotional plans for Feast of Rose of Heaven, Rosa Caeli have been overtaken.
 I am surrounded by pictorial representations of roses in my parent’s home.
 All my Mother’s interiors.
 Yesterday on a walk for Father’s day the hedges blooming with pale pink briar roses.

 At sunrise and noon, blue skies and radiant sunshine. Reminding me of the fiery heart of Madria Dea, of Her unconditional Love.
 I was going to read Holy Scripture and psalms of praise on the train journey.
 I have been sat watching my Mother’s body fail and thinking of her spirit reunited with Madria Dea’s Spirit.
 Imagining my Mother’s rose heart joining Heaven’s rose garden.
 Very simple.
 I was due to travel back to my home and set up my home altar, perform a moon rite.
 Celebrating the bright supernal solar Mother awaiting us.
 On an extra special Summer Solstice with the Rose Moon symbolising our Heavenly Mother.
 (The first full moon on a Summer Solstice since 1967).
 Praise be to Dea for the experience of much deeper spiritual significance for me.

Hymn of the Soul or Hymn of the Pearl or Hymn of the Robe of Glory

Hymn of the Soul or Hymn of the Pearl or Hymn of the Robe of Glory

HymnOfPearl-close10_sm by Randie Snow 2009

I think it is a good, basic explanation of why we are here and the Truth of things.
Many scholars attribute this poem to the Syrian Gnostic, Bardais, 154-222 AD. (http://gnosis.org/library/hymnpearl.htm).
The Hymn has the Apostle Judas Thomas singing the hymn.
Scholars cannot agree on the exact interpretation of this Hymn, but most see it as a spiritual allegory and that how I was taught.

Here is a good and simple chart explanation of allegories by B. Layton (Gnostic Scholar):
http://ww3.haverford.edu/religion/courses/222a/allegoryhymn.htm

So, this is the story of the soul. The kingdom is the Supernal Realm or the Pleroma and ‘my parents’ are the Divine Parents. Egypt stands for human existence on the material plane.

I like this translation with explanation of it.

DRESSING FOR THE JOURNEY

When I was a little child living
in my father’s palace in his kingdom,
happy in the glories and riches
of my family that nurtured me,
my parents gave me supplies
and sent me out on a mission
from our home in the east.
From their treasure house
they made up a cargo for me.
It was big though light enough
so I could carry it myself,
holding gold from the highest houses
and silver of Gazzak the Great
and rubies of India
and opals from the land of Kushan,
and they girded me with adamant
that can crush iron.
They took off my bright robe of glory,
which they had made for me out of love,
and took away my purple toga,
which was woven to fit my stature.
They made a covenant with me
and wrote it in my heart so I would not forget:
“When you go down into Egypt
and bring back the one pearl
that lies in the middle of the sea
and is guarded by the snorting serpent,
you will again put on your robe of glory
and your toga over it,
and with your brother, our next in rank,
you will be heir in our kingdom.”

THE DRAGON AND THE DEEP SLEEP

I left the east and traveled down
to Egypt with my two royal guides,
since the way was dangerous and harsh
and I was very young to walk alone.
I crossed the borders of Maishan,
the gathering place of merchants of the east,
came into the land of the Babylonians,
and entered the walls of Sarbug.
When I went down into Egypt
my companions left me.
I went straight to the serpent
and settled close by him in an inn,
waiting for him to sleep
so I could take my pearl from him.
Since I was alone
I was a stranger to others in the inn,
yet I saw one of my own people there,
a nobleman from the east,
young, handsome, lovable,
a son of kings — an anointed one,
and he came and was close to me.
And I made him my confidante
with whom I shared my mission.
I warned him against the Egyptians
and of contact with the unclean ones.
Then I put on a robe like theirs,
lest they suspect me as an outsider
who had come to steal the pearl,
lest they arouse the serpent against me.
Somehow they learned I was not
their countryman, dealt with me cunningly,
and gave me their food to eat.
I fell into a deep sleep.
I forgot that I was a son of kings
and served their king.
I forgot the pearl
for which my parents had sent me.
Through the heaviness of their food
I fell into a deep sleep.

“REMEMBER THE PEARL”

When all these things happened
my parents knew and grieved for me.
It was proclaimed in our kingdom
that all should come to our gate.
And the kings and princes of Parthia
and all the nobles of the east
wove a plan on my behalf
so I would not be left in Egypt.
And they wrote me a letter
and every noble signed it with his name:
“From your father, the king of kings,
and your mother, the mistress of the east,
and from your brother, our next in rank,
and to you, our son in Egypt, peace!
Awake and rise from your sleep
and hear the words of our letter!
Remember that you are a son of kings
and see the slavery of your life.
Remember the pearl
for which you were sent into Egypt!
Remember your robe of glory
and your splendid mantle, which you may wear
when your name is called in the book of life,
when it is read in the book of heroes,
when you and your brother inherit our kingdom.”

THE BIRD OF SPEECH [SOUND]

And serving as messenger,
the letter was a letter sealed by the king
with his right hand
against the evil children of Babylon
and the savage demons of the Sarbug labyrinth.
It rose up in the form of an eagle,
the king of all winged fowl;
it flew and alighted beside me
and became Speech.
At its Voice and the Sound of its rustling
I awoke and rose from my sleep.
I took it, kissed it, broke its seal, and read.
And the words written on my heart
were in the letter for me to read.
I remembered that I was the son of kings
and my free soul longed for its own kind.
I remembered the pearl
for which I was send down into Egypt,
and I began to enchant
the terrible and snorting serpent.
I charmed him into sleep
by calling the Name of my Father over him
and of my mother, the queen of the east.
I seized the pearl
and turned to carry it to my father.
Those filthy and impure garments
I stripped off, leaving them in the fields,
and went straight on my way
into the light of our homeland in the east.

THE LETTER’S VOICE

On my way the letter that awakened me
was lying like a woman on the road.
And as she had awakened me with her voice
so she guided me with her light
as if she were an oracle.
She was written on Chinese silk
and shone before me in her own form.
Her voice soothed my fear
and its love urged me on.
I hurried past the labyrinth walls of Sarbug
and Babylon on the left
and came to Maishan, the haven of merchants,
perched over the coast of the sea.
My robe of glory that I had taken off
and the toga over it were sent by my parents
from the heights of Hyrcania.
They were in the hands of treasurers
to whom they were committed
because of their faith,
and I had forgotten the robe’s splendor,
for as a child I had left it
in my father’s house.

THE GARMENT OF GNOSIS

As I gazed on it, suddenly the garment
like a mirror reflected me,
and I saw myself apart
as two entities in one form.
The treasurers had brought me one robe,
yet in two halves I saw one shape
with one kingly seal.
They gave me wealth,
and the bright embroidered robe
was colored with gold and beryls,
with rubies and opals,
and sardonyxes of many colors
were fastened to it in its high home.
All its seams were fastened
with stones of adamant,
and the image of the king of kings
was embroidered on it
as it rippled with sapphires
of many colors.
I saw it quiver all over,
moving with gnosis, in a pulsing knowledge,
and as it prepared to speak
it moved toward me,
murmuring the sound of its songs.
It descended and said,
“I am the one who acted for him.
For him I was brought up in my father’s house.
I saw myself growing in stature
in harmony with his labors.”

THE TOGA AND THE PEARL

With regal movements
the robe was spreading toward me,
urging me to take it,
and love urged me to receive it,
and I stretched forth and received it
and put on the beauty of its hues.
I cast my toga of brilliant colors
all around me.
Therein I clothed myself and ascended
to the gate of salutation and adoration.
I bowed my head and adored
the majesty of my father, who sent it to me.
I had fulfilled his commands
and he fulfilled what he had promised.
At the gate of his princes
I mingled with his nobles.
He was happy through me and received me,
and I was with him in his kingdom,
and his slaves praised him resoundingly.
He promised me that I would journey soon
with him to the gate of the king of kings,
and with my gifts and my pearl
I would appear with him before our king.

(The Gnostic Bible, Willis Barnstone)

 

The Journey Of Souls 101: Where Our Soul Goes When We Die

The Journey Of Souls 101:
Where Our Soul Goes When We Die

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 6:12

By Steven Bancarz| What happens to us when we die? Where does our soul go?

Chances are, if you were brought up in a religious background you believe that there are only 2 places you can go: Heaven and Hell. If you are a good person and believe the right things, you spend eternity in Heaven. If you are a sinful person, you spend an eternity in hell. Thankfully, this is a false dichotomy.

There has been a lot of scientific investigation into what happens when people leave their bodies when it dies and then return after experiencing time in the spirit world. Thousands of near-death experiences have given us the information we need to form a more accurate picture of what awaits us on the other side.

But more importantly than NDE testimonies is the fact that we can access our own subconscious memories within our souls that remember the journeys our souls took prior to incarnating into this life. Some people may have heard of “past-life regression”, but what we are talking about here is an in-between life regression.

Dr. Michael Newton, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist who specialized in hypnotherapy, where he would put people into hypnosis to bring out any past traumas they experienced in their lives and walk them through the memories into healing. He soon discovered that he was able to bring people back so far into their memories that they were remembering things that weren’t even taking place in this life anymore. They were taking place in between lives!

The Journey of Souls

In his books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls (which together have sold over half a million copies) he shares case studies that he has gathered over the course of four decades of bringing people back into the memories of their souls journey. Surprisingly, they all said the exact same things, and coincided very nicely with a lot of the NDE accounts that have occurred. Let’s first take a look at the basic process a soul goes through after death.

Remember, this information is not being made up. This is coming from 40 years worth or hypnotic regressions, all of which were consistent with one another and first-hand NDE accounts. The following is a list of the 10 steps our souls take after our physical body dies.

1) Death & departure

Many people will see their physical body right as they exit it at the moment that consciousness disconnects from the physical body. You will be able to see your surroundings and the things that are happening around your dead body. This will not scare you however, because it will feel as natural as anything. Some people report feeling frustrated or angry over the way they died and wishing that they could go back into their body to seek revenge, but this feeling passes with time as you begin to fall into the Light.

2 the-light

2) Gateway to the Spirit World

People always report seeing a light when they die. The light appears off in the distance, and you will slowly be pulled towards it, almost as if you are being pulled by a magnet. The light is always accompanied by a sense of love and peace. This is your transition phase back to your home in the spirit world.

3) Homecoming

Right when you enter into the spirit world after being pulled through the light, you are greeted by loved ones who are there to embrace you and comfort you. It’s sort of like a reunion. These are not necessarily your relatives from your current earth life. They may be family members of yours from previous lives who have been with you throughout your whole souls evolution. Essentially, you have family members you don’t currently know about from a totally different bloodline who will greet you as you enter the spirit world. You will, of course, remember their names and recognize their faces upon return.

It’s important to note here that the souls will take on the image they had in physical form to create a sense of home and familiarity for you. Souls don’t look like they did on earth necessary. The body is just a body. The soul is formless, but can take various shapes to serve different purposes. It is said that advanced souls who have lived many lives don’t necessarily have relatives that greet them, because they understand what the spirit world is about and have been through many times before. It is said in the books that advanced souls sometimes skip this step because it is not needed for them.

4 life-review-2

4) Orientation

After we are greeted by familiar spirits, we are taken to our place of healing. This is a sort of inter-dimensional stopover zone. This is where we are examined by our guide and go through a life review. People report seeing their entire life as a sort of movie film in front of their eyes or on the pages of a book.

You may have to see some things that make you feel ashamed and like you failed, but this is not a time of judgment. This is a time of review, and discussion about what needs to be improved upon as a soul. After you see your whole life, you may come to an agreement with your guides to come back to Earth to work on things after a certain period of time in the spirit world.

5) Transition

All souls eventually arrive at what is known as a “staging” area. It is described by souls as being similar to a metropolitan area or an airport terminal, and it serves as the first step souls take towards their new placement. This unified celestial field is a place of mass transit that transfers you to your next destination.

6) Placement

Souls get placed into groups based on their soul level. These “soul cluster groups” are a kind of learning/support group that souls congregate in for a while. Each group contains thousands of souls, with smaller secondary groups which contain about 20-50 souls each. You could think of this as a sort of classroom that serves the purpose of community, learning, review, and fellowship.

8 life-selection

7) Life selection

There comes a time when the soul has to prepare to leave the comforting sanctuary of the Spirit World and embark upon another journey on earth. It can be scary to leave the world of communion and love to be a part of a physical world of fear, competition, and struggle, but it’s necessary for evolution. The soul must consider these three questions to get clear about the kind of life they want to live:

Am I ready for a new physical life?
What specific lessons do I want to undertake to advance my learning and development?
Where should I go, and who shall I be in my next life for the best opportunity to work on my goals?
Some souls are reluctant to leave, while others spend just a brief time in the Spirit World because they are so eager to continue to learn. Old souls apparently incarnate less often than younger souls.

8) Choosing a new body

Roughly 90% of Americans are dissatisfied with their bodies. What if this was by design? According the memories of people in hypnosis, we consciously choose our vehicles before we come here, and our choice of vehicle helps facilitate the learning of the lessons we need to learn.

This turns the tables a bit on the way we think about physical “beauty”. How much easier is it to go through life looking perfect than it would be to deal with feelings of self-hate and judgment? Which path holds more lessons? When you see someone you think is “ugly” or disabled, just remember that inside that body could be a very old soul who came back to experience something new.

9) Rebirth

We have seen that a soul’s journey to incarnation requires a great deal of preparation, planning, and reflection. After you get clear about what it is you want/need to learn, choose a life, and choose a body, you are ready to reincarnate. The moment you choose to be reborn is the last moment you get to enjoy the omniscience of knowing who and what they are, and souls often spent their last moments in deep silence and stillness to fully appreciate the experience.

10) You forget all of this

By choosing to forget everything, we give ourselves the opportunity for a genuine experience. It’s no fun going on a roller-coaster you built if you know where all of the turns, loops, and fun parts are. If you could build your own roller-coaster and then experience it as if you no nothing about its origin or design, you would be able to extract so much more from the experience.

And hear you are reading this now. Perhaps you have known this before, or perhaps this is the first time you have ever been exposed to this information. Whatever your situation may be, I hope this article awakened something within you and reminded you that there is something more to all of this.

Conclusion

You are a miracle, and your life is not meaningless. You CHOSE to be where you are right now, even if you are in a place that is really difficult to cope with. In fact, your hardships and difficulties are a blessing because they provide you with an opportunity to do what your soul came here to do in the first place: evolve.

You are operating within physical time, but you belong to to an eternal world. You are not human. You are Spirit. “Human being” is just a mask your soul is wearing right now, and when your mask falls off at physical death, you return back home to the love and light from which you came.
