I’ll start with the story of Buddha, who had first lived his secular life, then started with ascetic life and then he when he started to behave the way between both extremes, he achieved the enlightenment. It is said, that while he was sitting under a tree, he heart a conversation between student and his music teacher. The teacher said " If you hit the string too hard, it will burst. If you hit it too gently, it won’t resonate. The mastery is to hit the strings just enough to get the exact sound, so all tones are in harmony."
From my point of view it‘s not only the way to the enlightenment, but it‘s also the way to a happy life. I believe, there is a mage in all of us, and we all have hidden powers inside, which can be activated. But we can’t activate it before we reach certain internal and external harmony. Activation of our inner powers is related to our personal health, strength, wisdom, relative financial security (feeling of having enough) and the ability of being without thought. This article is focused on how to achieve state of being without thoughts.
Those who can remain in state without thoughts, are able to perceive mild frequencies, voices from other worlds and other frequencies. Those are able to hear the voices of demons, gods, other cosmic civilisations and their higher self. In order to hear that, one has to be able to recognise automatic reactions of his/her mind. For this purpose, one should practice meditation.
The vast majority of the day we are not fully conscious, but we get into automatic mind mode. This automatic mode or autopilot is given by evolutionary principle which helps us to protect our energy. For example we are learning to drive a car. At the beginning we use a huge amount of energy to learn how to drive, we need to be fully conscious to change the gear, turn right etc. but after a while, when we get used to it, it becomes very easy or we can even say automatic. That means that we don’t have to think consciously about our actions or be 100% focused. We can listen to the radio, do the phone-calls or talk to other passengers.
We all "hear" in our minds internal voices: the voice of fire, water, air, earth and ether. They directly determine our actions, behaviour and decisions. First four voices belong to our material world. The fifth one is spiritual voice called ether.The purpose of this article is to understand them and change those automatic processes that we are doing unconsciously or subconsciously into doing them consciously. That means to observe and explore further our subconscious mind, understand it and and control it.
Our subconscious asks automatically certain questions. Everyone asks inside different questions, we have differently developed inner voices. For example: Men usually incline to the voice of fire and women incline to the voice of water. Also, in general we can say that young people tend to listen more to the voice of fire and air on the other hand older people listen more to the voice of earth and water. In order to establish a balance, one need to stop those voices, calm them down and harmonise them. Because if some voice becomes too dominant, too strong, it starts to be negative. My distribution of elements is a bit different than in classical
magic. I will explain why. My division of elements reflects the process of creation. We can symbolise the process of creation with five-pointed star (see the picture below). We draw five-pointed star clockwise from above –element ether (the thought). At the beginning there was a thought. Then it goes clockwise to element - Fire, which was created first, second element is the opposite of fire – Water, third element is Air which is the outcome of water and fire together and fourth element – the final crystallisation –Earth. Exactly in this order those elements were created. Then, we will finish the circle again with the thought (returning back to where we started).
The pentagram below represents standing human being from behind. Thus the right side of the person would be on the right in the picture and left side on the left. The right side represents the channel of activity – active channel and the left side represents the channel of desire- passive channel.
Speaking about the channels, in yoga we distinguish several thousands of channels, but the major ones are the right channel, the left channel and the middle channel. All described interactions and information are showed in the picture below.
Ida Nadi – the left (blue) one which leads to the right side of the brain. Those channels intersect in the area of sixth chakra. It can’t be easily explained, because those channels go in spiral around the middle channel as you can see in the picture. Ida Nadi – relates to the element of Earth and Water. It is a desire and emotion inside of us. Thus if we desire something – for instance to learn a new language or to have strong muscles, first we have to make a wish. The wish is supported by emotions and feelings which leads to that we will say to ourselves: „Yes, I want this, i want it a lot! I feel I have to do this!“
Pingala Nadi – the right (yellow) channel. It relates to the action and words. When we decide what we want, we formulate it into words and then we start doing something to achieve it (action). This channel relates to element of Air (as spoken words) and fire (as the action).
Sushumna Nadi – the middle channel. This channel relates to the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in our body. So, for instance, someone who wants to speak german is going to school to learn new vocabulary (action – related to right channel). Usually we are not able to use what we’ve just learnt straight after the learning. But if we take a few-hour nap, new information settles inside and get into our subconscious, then they are avaiable to be pulled out whenever we need them. Also, when someone wants to be muscular, he goes to the gym and do exercises. But muscles won't grow immediately, they will grow during the night, when the body is resting. So the autonomic nervous system or Sushumna Nadi causes human‘s internal adaptation.
FIVE INNER VOICES
This voice says: „I want.“ It is about dominance, growth, performance and the ability to make one's way through. The voice of fire is always asking: „Will this thing enhance my status, will it help me to achieve my goals? Will it help me to be more efficient, more influential, stronger? Or it is going to hold me back and slow me down?
There are five natural emotions and five unnatural emotions of this Voice. They are also mentioned in a book called „Conversations with God III,“ by „Neale Donald Walsch.“
The voice of fire is connected to ego. Natural attribute of fire is „anger“. This emotion itself is natural and positive, because it helps one to circumscribe his wishes and say „no“. When you are trying to suppress this voice (Ego/fire) or to say that ego is bad, negative, then your anger changes into „rage“ - which is negative emotion. Because of this trait people are doing things, which they soon regret and which leads to destruction. Ego has to be here. But it is only about keeping your ego within limits and rising above it. Observe your ego and try to understand it, don’t let yourself to lose control and to be pulled into situations.
The voice of fire can be controlled by being spiritual (working on yourself and rediscovering who you really are) as well as by other voices. That means to realise and live through that ego is only an illusion, that Me, as well as everything else, is consciousness and energy. If you take those sentences only as sentences or if you try just to believe in what they represent, your ability to control fire won’t arise. If you want to také control over fire, you need to make those sentences real and live it all through.
You can control it with mantras:
This voice says: „I FEEL“. The main trait is „grief“ which is alright to a certain extent when someone has to say goodbye to things or people. It is a natural emotion. If this emotion is being supressed or misunderstood, then grief changes into „depression“ or „hopelessness“ which are negative emotions.
This internal voice is asking: „Will this person/thing take care of me? Can I trust that person, or is he going to abandon me when I need him? Is this person/thing simple?“ That is all about harmony. „Will this person/thing make my life easier? If I am in trouble, will this person/thing help me to solve it? Will be this person interested in me later, will this thing serve me later?“ Those are the basic questions, which are comming up on one’s mind automatically.
What will happen if one gets to extreme: When this voice gets to it’s extreme, one starts to be hypersensitive. He starts to be controlled by his emotions and often turns off his healthy logic. So, as was said before, that men who listen more to the voice of fire tend to follow only logical things. Asking: „What am I gonna get out of this thing? Will it enrich me?“ Voice of water is quite the opposite. And when one tends to obey this voice, he will end up saying: „ I feel like I have to be there and there. I feel I have to do this and this. Move somewhere else, quit my job, start up a new business.“ And he is doing those things despite his healthy logic saying that it is foolishness. When one is too much influenced by this voice of water, he tends to be depressed, which should be compensated with the voice of fire. So this person has to follow up morelogical and analytical things. Sleep less and work more. On the other hand, people who are listening too much to the voice of fire should compensate it with voice of water to be more balanced – sleep more and work less. The voice of water is also humanity. It tells us to build a warmth of home.
This voice says: „I UNDERSTAND. I KNOW“. This voice keep asking us: „Will this thing/person standing in front of me bring to me something new and interesting? Am I going to learn something new, enriching or is it going to be boring?“ It is about creativity and spontaneity, exploring something new. So this voice always asks: „Will this thing/person teach me new knowledge, or it is going to be boring? Will I see new paths? Will this thing/person help me to rise above the ordinariness, above the mass, to be unique?“
Its primary trait is „envy“, which is alright to a certain extent, because it makes us say: „He or she did it, I can do it too. I want to do it too!“ When envy gets to it’s extreme it changes into „jealousy“ which is negative. The voice of air is about stimulation, discovering, innovation, new information, new ways, striving for change.
What happens if one gets to extreme: Those who listen too much to the voice of air usually spend a lot of time doing intellectual activities, even to that extend, that they stop looking after their appearance or they become extreme adventurers.
The best way how to soothe this voice is by saying mantra:
This voice says: „I HAVE“. Primary emotion of Earth is „fear“, which is to a certain extent alright. When fear is being supressed, or when is said that it shouldn’t be here, then it turns into its negative pole, which is „panic“. The voice in us which needs harmony, stability and reliability and fidelity. I tis about modesty and protection. This voice asks you from inside: „Will I have stability and certainty with this person/thing or will I feel stress and fear? Is it safe and reliable? Is it good? Is it guaranteed? What was promised will be fulfilled?“
Fear is these days the most common emotion. It is the opposite of love. Every day we are dealing with media telling us that we don’t have enough time, energy, money, work. But it’s not the truth. There is enough of everything for everyone in this world. We have enough time, money, work or anything. Only because of fear we don’t treat what we have towards overall contentment. For example, we use lots of money to develop and produce weapons, to kill other people and then we don’t have enough money for other things supporting peace and protection. Mankind can’t get rid of fear until individual people will not get rid of it. This fear is naturally inside of us, to make sure that we will appreciate life, look after our body and to store goods so we can survive.
What happens, when one gets to extreme: If someone lets the voice of Earth to take over the reins, he usually starts to save, and usually he is saving where it’s senseless. Usually the voice of Earth is getting stronger in us with increasing age. Excluding people who are working on themselves and trying to be spiritual – their progression goes the other way.
This voice of Earth can be soothe only with voice of spirit saying:
The last element is „Akasha“. Basic motto of this voice is: „I AM“. That is the one which mages are saying or as well formula which received Moses, when he saw burning bush: „Eheje, asher, eheje“. Or the same thing which is used at the beginning of the most popular mantras: „Om Só Ham“ (I am in sanskrit).
It is about intention, greater sense, soul, God. This voice is awakened when one starts to search for „greater sense“. This voice keep asking: „what is the point, what is the meaning?“
After revealing this spiritual voice inside, one can control other internal voices. So those who let themselves to be controlled by other voices, which keeps them bounded closely to material world live in never-ending carousel. This voice of spirit helps us to get off that carousel and step back from this whole material illusion.
Primary emotion of this voice is „love“ which is all right. When love is being suppressed or misunderstood it changes into „the feeling of ownership“ – when we want to own something or somebody.
Do you want to support your spiritual development?
If one wants to have a control over those inner voices, it‘s good to contact these particular beings and their gods. Each of these beings will tell you some of „their things“ and thanks to them you can further control the element. But until one is not able to perceive his internal voice yet, he is not able to control that element neither. So in this case contacting the relevant being is not that effective as it would be or could be. Sooner or later each mage figure out that: Yeah, in these situations I follow this and this internal voice and these things I do or I don’t do, I say or I don’t say because of this or this inner voice – at this time it will be effective to contact certain being. This being will provide you more instructions how to work or further control each internal voice or element.
