Ego is part of the dance of who you are.
It is your vehicle to wisdom.
The body-mind is the Shakty of the Divine, the dance of the Divine Mother.
Your consciousness is Shiva, the Formless Light, seeking
merging and melding with Shakty, your bodymindsoul,
becoming One in the Immaculate Conception
and thus giving birth to You, your Christed Self,
the Golden child reborn in total acceptance* and freedom*
and unconditional love*
*All of these constitute PREMA, non-judgement and thus
the knowledge that no forgiveness is required.
You, and only You, hold the key, beholds the key,
become the key and your turning in the lock of the hidden gateless gate
is the Redemption and Wisdom.

The river of Light, which is Kundalini
There are many different views and takes on the
kundalini energy. In the West it is a strange and unknown
idea that there is a central source of spiritual energy
which feeds the soul and advances her development
without the help of psychology, mental exercises, visualization techniques,
and all kinds of therapy.
The Third Initiation of the Temple of Mary was put together in flow
and energy, to culminate in a kundalini activation and awakening.
A combination of the sacred sound chanting, the journey into the
subconscious with the role playing and the sacred drama
and then the very deep intense shaktypat on the last day;
all working together to
prepare and open you up to receive the very high vibrations
that is available to you.
It is very important to activate and increase kundalini
whilst working with Divine Love and Bhakty. This power
is infinite and has incredible power and potential and
can be manifested in unpleasant ways.
The spiritual energy of kundalini makes one more sensitive on many levels.
You become more aware of your own patterns and the play of others around you; you are confronted with your own games and habits and your comfort zone does not allow
the same level of denial as before. This creates inner tension and pressure.
Then the energy of kundalini works in on the nervous system of the body and
especially the brain.
Typically of kundalini are the following :
Moments of deep joy and gratitude, almost to the point of feeling overwhelmed;
Sensation of floating and feeling blissed out and totally ungrounded;
Feeling exhausted and tired;
Feeling overwhelmed by life in general;
Feeling very stressed out, beyond the point of being able to bear it;
Skin sensitivity, eye sensitivity, an upset stomach and cramps in legs.
You may struggle to sleep or to fall asleep.
You may see lights or feel as though a lamp has been turned on in your brain.
The list goes on and on.
During this awakening, it is important to take care of yourself.
Get enough rest. Go to bed early.
Switch off the chatter of the mind by surrendering.
Spend time sitting outside
Eat grounding food
Drink plenty of water
Take rescue remedy or valerian or one of the calming herbs
Chamomile tea is good
Magnesium powder is essential - Metabole.
Vit B5 (pantothenic acid) also helps.
Do not try to fast during this time nor to go on a healthy detoxing diet. Your
adrenals are already struggling because of kundalini activity – so feed your body
good vegetables and whatever else it craves within reason.
This is the time that you get to know parts of the real you.
You may uncover that you are much more sensitive than what you realized; you may find that you are much tougher than what you thought; when you pay attention to what your body now demands and how it reacts to certain situations, you can gather valuable information about yourself. You will see how you use to override your true nature and force it into situations or out of situations that your mind thought was best and not what your Real Self wanted. In this very important time of awakening, you can learn about your conditioning and adopt new behaviours and new belief systems.
Observe which meditations make you feel calmer and focus on those now.
Do not over-stimulate your nervous system by doing too many meditations, nor too
many chants in one day. Take it easy. Less is more.
The nervous system and adrenals will burn out if you do not get enough sleep and
rest and if you continue to stimulate kundalini. This is the time to trust that
the river of light is flowing and will continue to flow at its own pace. If you stoke
the fire too much, it will once again burn out and die down.
It is okay not to meditate every day. You may want to take turns with
japa mala, the sacred heart meditation, the rosary or the chants.
What does Love say in this regard? Observe yourself and do not fall into the
trap of fear.
Trust and go with the flow.

On Sunday 1 September 2013, each Flamekeeper was initiated into the
radiance and grace of the New Light.
This transmission was received by myself and transferred to you
just after Shaktypat.
Some of you may have experienced it as a sense of lightness,
ease, bliss, or a seeing into 'heaven' beyond this dimension.
It is a Universal Diksha, and the transformation
took place in the Consciousness of the Temple of Mary.
The Temple of Mary is a Divine Consciousness and
a Being of Divine Love of vastness and Grace
and Compassion beyond our understanding.
Each one who takes initiation and a spiritual name
and who acts in service in The Temple, is a facet
of this divine energy.
The Presence of this heavenly Being was palpable
and visible at times, during the weekend and especially
on Sunday. I will refer to this consciousness in the feminine -
not because it has any gender, but because the fragrance and touch
of this consciousness has a feminine quality to it.
She first appeared to me in the winter of 2001, in Glastonbury,
where I stayed in the home of Koko (who has since passed over)
priestess of Avalon. It seems very apt that She makes herself known, twelve
years later, on the first day of Spring, the symbolic day of the Eastern Gate,
the gate of rebirth and a new dawn.
A full cycle. The painting above is the one that I made of Her
at that time.
She revealed to me the New Light and the Twelve Petals of the Lotus
in the Heart.
The Ishta Devata meditation was the first step onto this expansion
of the path of love. I suggest that you create a journal or notebook
for your Ishta Devata meditations as the insights and revelations
will grow and you will be guided to connect deeper and directly
with the Guru Within, the Inner Teacher, the great I Am.
We will touch on this new information during the
workshop in October and immerse ourselves into it,
step by step, during upcoming workshops
and during the fourth initiation.
I am considering making the workshops available
online for Chandi MariaDevi who cannot travel to
Cape Town for regular workshops. All in the works still.
My intent is to paint the mandala of the New Light and her
embodiment in order to bring the visual manfiestation
into our reality. I will make altar cards of these and bring
along to our workshop.
Pay attention to the symbolism contained in this sharing
and become aware of changes in your inner reality.
I will share more as it is revealed to me.
