Esoteric Healing - Chapter VIII - The Laws and Rules Enumerated and Applied

Rule Two
The healer must achieve magnetic purity, through purity of life. He must attain that dispelling radiance which shows itself in every man when he has linked the centers in the head. When this magnetic field is established the radiation then goes forth.

The East has ever emphasized magnetic purity but has totally ignored physical purity as the Occident understands it; the West has emphasized external physical purity but knows nothing about magnetic purity; this latter is largely based (somewhat erroneously though not entirely so) on the effect of the auric emanation and its purity or non-purity. The healer, in this rule, is advised to:

  1. Achieve magnetic purity through purity of life.
  2. Attain a dispelling radiance through linking the centers in the head. [578]
  3. Establish a radiatory field through the utilization of this magnetic field.
    Result: Radiation.

The interesting part of this rule is its linking the two possible forms of spiritual healing - radiatory and magnetic - into one activity. The true healer automatically blends both modes of healing and uses both methods simultaneously and automatically because he works through the magnetic area, contained within the radius of influence of the three head centers, or within the triangle which is formed by so linking them.

In Lemurian days, the healer achieved his ends by the use of drastic physical disciplines, thus gaining the needed purity. The goal, as you know, of hierarchical effort in those days was to teach primitive man the uses and purpose of the physical body and its intelligent control; the man who mastered the body and was in control of it as a machinist is in control of a machine, was then regarded as an initiate. Today, it is the mastering of the personality which makes a man an initiate. Celibacy, careful modes of eating and a measure of bodily cleanliness, plus the rudiments of Hatha Yoga (embryonic physical, athletic control - muscular control primarily) were strictly emphasized. This achieved, so-called purity permitted the free flow of the pranic currents from the healer to the patient, via the sacral center and the throat center - the spiritual healer working through the throat center, and the point of reception in the patient being the sacral center; neither the heart nor the head centers were used. Prana, to define it for your purposes, is the vitality of the planet, its vital emanation; it is this prana which is distributed or transferred by a natural healer (one without any training, without much essential knowledge or with little, if any, spiritual [579] orientation). He heals but does not know how or why; prana simply flows through him in the form of a strong current of animal vitality, usually from the splenic center and not from any of the seven centers.

These drastic physical disciplines are often attempted today by well-intentioned aspirants; they practice celibacy, strict vegetarianism, relaxation exercises and many kinds of physical exercises, in the hope of bringing the body under control. These forms of discipline would be very good for the undeveloped and the lowest type of human being, but they are not the methods which should be employed by the average man or the practicing aspirant. Concentration upon the physical body only serves to enhance its potency and to feed its appetites and bring to the surface of consciousness that which should be securely secluded below the threshold of consciousness. The true aspirant should be occupied with emotional, not physical, control and with the effort to focus himself upon the mental plane, prior to achieving a stabilized contact with the soul.

In Atlantean times, the shift of the attention from the dense physical body to the emotional vehicle began slowly to be made. The initiate of that time began to teach his disciples that the physical body was in reality only an automaton, and that it was the desire body, and the nature and quality of their habitual desires which should be considered if purity was to be attained. It was in this race, therefore, that personal magnetism first began slowly to show itself. The early and the primitive Lemurian was not in the least magnetic as we understand the word, but in Atlantean days a certain measure of magnetic radiation showed itself, though not to the extent which is now frequent and possible. The first dim outline of the halo could be seen around the heads of advanced Atlanteans. Magnetic purity became a possibility and a goal, but was dependent upon emotional [580] control and the purification of the desire nature; this produced automatically a much greater measure of purity in the dense physical vehicle than the Lemurian initiate ever achieved. Diseases of the body became more subtle and complex, and the first psychological diseases appeared and the various ills which are definitely based upon the emotions. With this type of difficulty we have dealt in an earlier part of this treatise. The healer in those days worked through the solar plexus center and (if an initiate) through the heart. There was still no magnetic area or field of energy in the head.

Today, in our Aryan race, magnetic purity is not dependent upon the physical disciplines; it is still - for the mass of the people - dependent upon emotional disciplines, but in the case of the true healer in the New Age it is dependent upon the "lighted magnetic area in the head." This provides a field of activity for the soul, working through the head centers and focusing itself in the magnetic field which they enclose. When all the powers of the body and the directed attention of the healer are centered in the head, and when the astral body is quiescent and the mind is active as a transmitter of soul energy to the three head centers, you then have an established radiance, or energy emanation which is a potent force in healing. The radiation is intense, not so much from the familiar aspect of light, but from the extent of its emanating rays of active energy which can reach the patient and energize the needed center. All the centers in the body of the patient can be receptive to this energy, and not just one, as in the previous two types of healing.

When the karma or life-pattern of the patient permits, these energy rays (emanating from the magnetic field in the healer's head) become what is called a "dispelling radiance"; they can drive away the forces which create or [581] aggravate the disease. When this dispelling radiance is unable (because of the destiny of the patient) to bring about a physical cure, it can nevertheless be turned to the dispelling of subtler difficulties, such as fear in some form or other, emotional imbalance and certain psychological difficulties which greatly enhance the problem with which the patient is faced.

Healers would do well to remember that when the three centers in the head are linked up and the magnetic field is therefore set up and the radiance is present, the healer can then use the ajna center as the directing agent for this "dispelling radiance." It is interesting to note that the two major centers in the head (corresponding to atma-buddhi, or the soul) are the head center and the alta major center, and that these correspond esoterically to the distributing agents of the right and the left eyes, as do the two glands in the head: the pineal gland and the pituitary body. You have, therefore, in the head three triangles, of which two are distributors of energy and the third is a distributor of force.

Three Triangles

[582] It is with these triangles that the trained healer eventually works and which he consciously employs. The time when this will be possible still lies very far ahead. At present the healer must work through visualization and the power of the creative imagination. As he imagines, through visualization, the relationship of these interlaced triangles, superimposing them the one upon the others, beginning with the first, he is doing a definite work of creative placing, then of creative vitalizing and finally of creative directing. In these three words: placing, vitalizing, directing, you have the results indicated as to what obedience to this rule will enable the healer to accomplish. The attention is placed, the magnetic field is spiritually vitalized; the generated vital radiance is then distributed and directed correctly through the medium of the third triangle. This sounds a somewhat complicated procedure but after a little practice this healing exercise of placing, vitalizing and directing becomes an almost instantaneous and automatic accomplishment.
