“The Limitless Sea Collective”: A Group Adventure in Abundance!
"Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with. A person develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things. Therefore, the basis of all advancement must be the science of getting rich. The object of all life is development, and everything that lives have an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining.
"A person’s right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to his fullest mental, spiritual, and physical unfolding; or, in other words, his right to be rich. The purpose of nature is the advancement and unfolding of life, and everyone should have all that can contribute to the power, elegance, beauty, and richness of life."
- Wallace D. Wattles "The Science of Getting Rich"
For the past 18 months, I have been hearing a very similar lament from many of those I work with and give service to. This is due to the fact that almost all of us within the global community have been challenged financially. It seems that our lives, missions and vocations, especially Servants of the Light, Caregivers and Professionals with a Social Service Vocation have been held back by a difficulty in obtaining the resources (usually in the form of money) which we need. I am honored to tell you that this was only a "rough patch" and that we have passed through it.
It is easy to become overwhelmed and fearful in the face of the "facts" of our everyday life. The preceding two years, leading up to the elections of Nov. 2, have been an orgy of fear based thoughtforms and scarcity memes. This has left many of us with the belief that we are like leaves being blown by the winds of a storm. In our minds our economic conditions, our finances, and our life choices are all being curtailed.
Yet the fatalism of our times is only a meme. We have infected each other with it. We have conserved the infection in our institutions and our lives. It has gone from the realm of a "self-fulilling prophecy" to something Metaphysical. We have reached a point where the only solution is also a Metaphysical operation.
As a Working Wizard I get a regular stream of individuals seeking a Magickal intervention in the affairs of their lives. These desired interventions generally fall into a few categories. These are Health, Love, Justice, Guidance, Restoration of Loss, and the greatest of all: Wealth. No other concern is greater. In recent times I have received more requests for financial aid than all the others combined! A Wizard gets a very clear perception of conditions in the general population via the requests he receives for specific interventions. It is unmistakable that conditions are really dire.
Approximately 18 months ago I decided to take action. I realized that the sheer volume of financial need and its continually-increasing rate meant that a "retail" solution just wouldn't work. So I expanded my investigation of potential curatives outside the Magickal disciplines.
In addition to my work as a Wizard, I have a "day job": I am a Business Mentor and Personal Coach. I have been trained by the Tony Robbins Organization in NLP, the Law Of Attraction by Michael Losier, The Science of Mind, Life Coaching, and Hypnosis by dozens of organizations and teachers. Every one of these has demonstrated benefits in the lives of millions of individuals. Unfortunately, none of these has been able, in its own right, to overcome the negative thoughtforms and scarcity memes of our culture.
Now, there is a cultural bias on both sides of the Magickal/Literal divide. Those people who live in a Magickal reality discount the "Mechanistic or Reductionist" worldview. Those who live in the Scientific/Analytic universe refuse to accept that there can be any process that cannot be redacted using the "Clockwork Universe" paradigm.
One of the most important lessons a Magus must master is that the truth (or what will work) is always near the center between two diametrically opposed ideas. The truth lives in the region of balance.
This region of balance is also where you encounter the "Aha" moment! My first "Aha" was the realization that a Mechanistic structure could be coupled with Magickal Transformation. I could use Magickal Principles to evolve a device for the Manifestation of Abundance.
At the core of this design strategy, I had first to decide upon the Magickal Philosophy which would be the Paradigm within which I would create the processes and mechanisms. As in most things, "you go with what you know." My principle orientation is Hermetic. I have spent most of my life and career as a Magus within the Discipline of the Hermetic Principles. With few exceptions, I construct all of my Magickal Effects upon a framework of the 7 Hermetic Principles.
Having made this decision, I set forth the Intention for an Outcome, much in the way that you would first create a thesis statement. My Intention for an Outcome was based upon a question: "How can the maximum number of individuals dependably manifest Abundance?" As with all questions, the answer lies in the structure of the query. This meant that the solution had to be something which a multitude could do together.
Being a Ceremonial (Ritual) based Magus my first thought was another question: "What sort of Ritual or other Device/Process could be used?" As I reviewed the different types of rituals and spells at my disposal I was struck with another issue: coordination of the participants.
The difficulty was that spells and rituals are restricted by the structure within which they are set. If I brought a group of individuals together for a powerful ritual or setting of a powerful spell, the very nature of either one would exclude anyone who wasn?t part of the initial originating Magickal Act. Hmmm...
Of course this lead to the next obvious question: "What sort of Magickal Operation could I use which would remain in constant operation and allow individuals to participate and receive benefit who were not part of the original Act?"
Create a durable self-sustaining Construct which once activated would allow a continuing flow of new participants to attach to it!
And then came the "Aha" moment!
Having a "why" and a "what," I was focused on a "how." As I had previously mentioned, I am an Hermeticist. The first Hermetic Principle is "Mentalism; all that is exists as a Thoughtform!" So the first task was to establish a Thoughtform that could be shared by an unlimited number of "stakeholders." This would be a powerful but simple Meme.
To craft this Meme I returned to a corollary of the teachings of Master W. D. Wattles: "DON'T TRY TO ACHIEVE ABUNDANCE ALONE!!!" In truth, whether it is through Visualization, Affirmation, Meditation, Prayer, or any other practice, a Collective will succeed where an individual will fail. That truth was the Principle under which we created the Limitless Sea Collective. From this axiom I created the Meme: "Endless good now comes to me and through me, in endless ways."
This Meme was multi-tasked and bears multiple layers of meaning. It underlies the structure of the Construct, it acts as a barrier against misaligned energies, it sets the recirculating flow of energies throughout the Collective, and it aligns with a Divine Intention.
Holding the Meme in my consciousness I began the journey "upward" to the Spiritual Plane and used it to perceive the Divine Intention with which it was in Harmonic Resonance. In a timeless state I began to "experience" the Vibrations rising and creating ever-increasing resonances. I absorbed this resonance as a template and returned to the Physical Plane.
This began the formative stage of the Manifestation of the Limitless Sea Collective. This was truly a manifestation of the second Hermetic Principle: Correspondence. I had entered into the realization process connected to the Principles corollary: "As above so below, as below so above. As within so without, as without, so within."
I had reached a place where the template was unfolding a design protocol within my mind, coming down to me from above. As I accepted the design within myself, I became able to externalize it as a series of interconnected artifacts and processes.
It was at this time that I reached a cusp of transformation. I had come to the point where my skills required a complementary but distinctly different set of skills to bring the process forward. I had brought the Work downward through the third, fourth and fifth Hermetic Principles. I was now in the Place of the sixth Principle: Causation.
Causation is the stage of the formalization of processes. At this stage a Thoughtform has reached its transition into a "near reality." This is the point where in Physics the Theoretician requires the different skill set of the Applications Expert. This is where the working models have to be built.
I have been very fortunate (or a tool in the hand of a Higher Consciousness) to be brought into a collegial relationship with another highly skilled and extensively learned Magickian: Andrieh Vitimus.
I had met Andrieh in 2008 through his publicist at Llewellyn Worldwide in connection with the marketing of his seminal work on Magick, Hands on Chaos Magick. We began with a series of telephone conversations in preparation for his appearance on my weekly Internet Radio Program, “Ascending Way” on Blog Talk Radio. During these conversations I became not only impressed with the depth and range of his Magickal accomplishments and scholarship, but was helped by him to escape my prejudice against the label "Chaos Magick."
Being "Old School," an Hermeticist and Ceremonial Magus, I had been persuaded that the Chaos Magick Movement was simply made up of individuals who didn't want to take the time to master the more difficult aspects of Magickal Discipline. I had read Spare, Carroll, R.A. Wilson, Hine, and several others. However, my perception was that the movement was filled with "wannabes" living in their parents basements trying to invoke C'thullu. Andrieh gave me a new appreciation for the movement and was even able to show me instances in which I was in complete alignment with its theories and practices.
I approached him and we began to "jam" with each other, in the manner of two Jazz musicians. His perceptions influenced my theoretical construct and my theoretical construct provided a set of criteria and intentions for his Syncretic Magickal operations. It was as profitable a collaboration as J. Robert Oppenheimer and the various "practical" scientists like Fermi, Teller, Bohr and all the others on the Manhattan Project.
The step-by-step process which resulted will probably only be of interest to other Magi. In the final version of the Work we established a five stage process of preparation for the participants. This is based upon:
- Stage 1: establishing an initial access to the Intelligence of the Higher Planes.
- Stage 2: creating an inner template for the construction of a Personal Astral Temple, which contains a Portal to the Astral Temple Complex as well as the Constructs which will store the Vibrations of the Flow of Unlimited Abundance.
- Stage 3: soliciting the assistance of the Participants' Guides, Guardians, Ancestors, and Higher Self in the work of achieving Harmonium and Continuity with the Sustaining Love and Lifeforce emanating from the All in All.
- Stage 4: connecting the Intention of the Participants with the Divine Will of the All in All, to promote the Flow of Blessings to all that It has Emanated.
- Stage 5: erecting, activating, and synchronizing the Portal within the Participants' Personal Astral Temples to the "Receiving Station" within the Astral Temple Complex and receiving a Pathworking taking them through the Magick Mirror in whose construction they have been instructed, to the Receiving Station of the Astral Temple Complex.
At the conclusion of these preparatory steps the Participants will be able to bring themselves at will to the precincts of the Astral Temple Complex and be ready to "ride the Light Beam" into the Hall of Unlimited Abundance on the night of each month's Full Moon to participate in the Grand Conjuration of the Collective.
The specific experiences and processes of the Preparatory Period include a daily text reading, contemplation of a Coordinated Sigil, a daily Pathworking (Guided Meditation), a daily Mantra and the creation and activation of a Magick Mirror.
In this first period of the Collective's formation we have been blessed and honored to receive the support of a distinguished group of individuals who have completed this Work in a 5 day period during the period of the Waxing Moon Cycle of the month. This month, November 2010, will be the final cycle in which we will place this level of demand upon the participants. Beginning in December the Preparatory Process will be extended to 5 weeks. This will facilitate acquisition of the Alchemical Transformation by the Participants.
We will also be shifting from the Contribution model to a fee based program. If you are interested in joining us during the last accelerated cycle please contact us immediately by visiting our website and following the embedded link: www.ascensionhouse.org/13.html
Here are some of the comments made by our current Limitless Sea Collective brothers and sisters:
- "Thanks! I have felt changes in my life since I started. I have found the process very simple yet profound. I have noticed changes within me, I no longer worry about money or see it as limited. When I need something the money is there. My whole life is flowing with even more ease than before.
"I will say that this has affected more than money in my life. I have been connecting with people on a new level. I have also been channeling on a new level. Everything has expanded, including me. I look forward to whatever is next!"
- Barbara R. (Oklahoma)
- "Thank you! I have started and I'm working on Day 3 today. The guided meditations are great. The first day my connection to the All was powerful. I was enveloped with a pulsing purple light and the positive feeling of abundance has been with me since."
- "Thank you :) I'm excited to be a part of this project! I think we all can use a hefty dose of Abundance and real Wealth right about now. :)
I will write something more formal after work tonight, but things have been good since the 23rd- I'm getting $740 an entire month before I expected it (which I can really use LOL) and an extra $300 I wasn't expecting at all. ;o) Also getting consistently the hours I wanted at work (looking at the schedules made after the 23). So yeah- off to a good start. :o)"
- Becky (Ohio)
- "Just thought I'd share my experience tonight with you. I got some 'inspiration' earlier to start drawing/painting (didn't have supplies-settled with a pen). Now, I've always been artistically inclined, however I've never had that 'passion' in awhile. I was excited about painting/drawing again, something I lost at about grades 7-8.
"I'm not sure of others' experience on manifestation, however it seems I've been getting a lot of discounts lately.
"Thank you for setting this up!"
- Zac (Toronto)
- "I have already been able to see the results from partaking in prep work for Limitless Sea Collective. Today I received news that my company has qualified for $15,000 grant. Also, I was surprised to receive commission check from work I completed over 2 months ago. I am excited to see continued abundant blessings from Limitless Sea Collective."
Scott P (NYC)
- "I am indeed honored to be included in this Collective and although am not the brightest bulb in the pack will pledge to complete all that I am able to do shining as brightly as I can. I have completed Day 1 and during the meditation I was taken back to a dream of 60 years ago when I traveled up through 'MY' beam of light back to Source.
"There I observed 2 beings in white who acknowledged my presence and telepathically spoke to each other. I could hear in my mind one say 'How did she find her way back here?' The other gave the 'I don't know' look. The first one told me very gently that I couldn't stay. That I had go back because I had something to do but could stay for awhile and look at the Earth. I watched from a cloud and awoke in my bed. What a lovely feeling to connect back there. Thank you so much for including me."
