'Pathworking' Chapter

Pathworking

When people are in altered states of consciousness, especially in deep trance, they tend not to see just random things but consistent things. Like entering a world that has persistent characteristics unlike our waking imagination would seem to be. Pathworking traditions all serve a similar purpose to help you connect with deeper things while you are in your normal daily state of mind.

You start with some symbolism usually reflecting something you seek to follow or understand. As you move from the starting point in your mind, you move to places that have natural links to the first idea, the first thing you held in mind. These links are the paths. At the second stage, you encounter the keeper of the gate. At the next level, we reach the hall of wisdom. Beyond the place of wisdom is the place of communion, the community. Beyond the realm of the spirit, there is the place of no wind. Nirvana and there is a place beyond even the ancients. The place of first creation, first home, deep home.

“You need to claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly posses all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality.” Flonda Scott Maxwell

Through the Veil

Have you all heard of the veil? Everyone has many selves, because there are many veils. In the cabalistic system, there are ten. Can you see yourself in a mirror if you are standing far away from it? Farther away… Seek More

Realm of Wisdom

I won’t go into the whole map for pathworking. We are following what they call in Kabbalah the middle pillar. The super highway of that realm. It has width as well as depth. At the next level past the realm… Seek More

Community and the Ancients

Beyond the place of wisdom is the place of communion, the community. It’s seen as a vast city or a verdant tribal hunting ground. A camp where one can speak with the elders. This is the realm of the persistent… Seek More

First Home

There is a place beyond even the ancients. The place of first creation, first home, deep home. It has a few names, but it is often mentioned in every creation myth, and it’s empty. It is also called the throne… Seek More
