incarnation are quite remarkable. It is here our consciousness can fully experience itself
within the dualistic nature of existence... swinging from one

motion and change, in contrast
and conflict, pleasure and pain, triumph and failure, ecstasy and
despair, love and fear, creation and dissolution, life
Through all these diverse
our spiritual awakening is accelerated.
Our Comfort Zone
each one of us there is a part that is insecure amongst the
shifting tides of life, afraid of any sort of change. This part
for constancy, normality, security, stability, a known
identity. This part wants to have everything
all figured out, where we must have control of all that is
instead of allowing the mystery to unfold.
This part holds on for dear life to past experiences and memories

part plots and plans our life out to the smallest
detail, locking us into a set way of being, shutting us down so we
only function inside a container or "box"
of limited thinking and feeling. This is our
psychic "comfort zone"... and we invest most all our power in
maintaining these self imposed illusions (no matter if it holds us
greatest potential). And if there is any deviation meeting its
expectations (due to outer force or circumstance), we are
judgmental, disappointed and angry, blaming life, other people or
tend to hold judgment of life as it is or isn't, what it should
should not be, that one experience is superior or more
than another. We pursue the "pleasant" experiences and feelings
"negative"... even if the so called "negative" experiences
feelings may hold more life energy and growth.
Buddhist teachings, any and all “attachment”... be it to
people, places, things, events, experiences, expectations,
thoughts, feelings, false hopes or preconceived ideas... is the
primary cause of suffering. Any attachment locks us into a ridged
energy pattern that makes us resistant to positive growth,
preventing us from

Dualistic Elements of Existence
Male and Female
Heaven and Earth
Yin and Yang
Expansive and Contractive
Matter and Anti-Matter
Light and Dark
Internal and External
Healing applies these elements to create

patterns (stagnations) allowing one to shift closer into the
core - the
center - the balance point of life.
Tantric healing, if
you are presenting an extreme of one polarity, the opposite
element may be applied. Eventually, the pendulum swings of your
energy will be less and less
pronounced as you shift into a more balanced position and
deeper within. As your outward directed
energy refocuses into the center, it may eventually enter the
psychic channel of the "Kundalini" and begin to awaken its latent
powers. You may experience feelings of Bliss, Love, Light
and Peace... which in essence are qualities
of your eternal “Self".

or spiritual energetic phenomenon of

& Red Tantra
Spiritual Path is like riding a hot air balloon
in order to ascend to the highest heights
we must eventually let go of everything.
Depending upon where a person currently resides on the scale of
"extremes", one may conclude there are two different paths
reaching a balance point.
one hand we have the "White Tantric Path"... which works with the
cooling, light, cosmic, expansive energies and vibrations (found
higher multi-dimensional chakras,
Soul Aspects and God Self). For someone whose
awareness is fixated on the physical and mental realities (the
lower levels and densities) this polarity
is used. This sort of purifying energy work can be difficult to
it is extremely subtle and light, but none the less it is very
important. Spirit usually begins most healing work here, not only
because this end of the spectrum is generally safer,
but it prepares one to more easily open up to receive energy work

other hand we have the "Red Tantric Path"... which works with
fiery, creative, concentrated sexual energies and vibrations
the lower chakras and lower selves). Depending
upon ones particular history, these levels of ones being can

destructive energy patterns and memories. If awakened

preparation (i.e. purification as done in the White
work) there can be an
exaggerated, violent and detrimental reaction. This is the
Crisis" in extreme - caused by overly activating these
imbalances, unresolved issues and energies. To a certain extent,
healing crisis cannot be avoided during the normal course of any
of healing work, but
it can be minimized by laying the proper
foundations - namely, by preparing and purifying the body mind

one that is not forced (according to how the ego-mind thinks and

agenda, direction and timing of the Higher Self).

(to those who want to do it themselves)
There are always a few people who (after
having read a
few books and taken a few classes) get the notion that
forcibly stimulating themselves on these lower chakras (through
certain intense spiritual yogic practices) is the way to go.
Unfortunately, this often creates more problems: like a Pandora's

energies that cannot then be so easily controlled, balanced and
integrated... all of which may further cause physical and
burn out, mental and emotional imbalance, insanity, disease or
Additionally, by opening
up in these forceful ways, they make themselves vulnerable to
being manipulated and controlled by the lower entities
that exist on such levels. Undoing such damage
inflicted upon the energy field and psyche is possible.. but
will take much healing work.
This healing work makes it possible to experience the true
("in-to-me-see") of a sacred spiritual relationship (or at the
it can be used as preparation for one). This work helps open
channels of communication, allowing you to connect with another
clearly and without distortion. As your energy,
consciousness and vibrations accelerate and shift into a higher
relationships begin to take on a whole new meaning and purpose.
As you do this work, you begin to let go of the old
open to the possibility of attracting new friends (and
lovers) who better resonate with where you are now at. A new way
of living, relating and being will manifest, and you will be able
to more fully and deeply experience
the uninhibited and unadulterated sharing of love with another.
This is the promise for the coming
spiritual millennia - the Tantric Relationship.
Tantra is about becoming "One" with Source, be it the Universe,
Love or God. Its
principles may be
applied to help work through (confront or overcome) all
that we have a negative charge on (as in negative karma).
Tantra is also an important tool to help
those who are trying to overcome an attachment or "addiction".

We have been created with the most powerful chemistry lab within
very own bodies
(inside of which is the true location of "Ambrosia" -
the "Nectar of the
Gods"). Feed these bodies certain natural substances and this
starts producing - in the proper doses - the
drugs we need to maintain good health. However, once we

production... and taken to an extreme, lead to outer dependency
and addiction. Drugs are just one substance
that can be abused (there are many more).
lower powers that have been in control on this planet
(on one dimension or another) know all about our weaknesses... and
wanting to stay in "business", "they" do
everything to distract us from our inner selves and make us
dependent and addicted as possible. To that end, they try to
manipulate our mind into believing in an authority
outside ourselves so we can be
more easily controlled as they see fit... and thus make
more and more money (by selling us their drugs, politics,
wars, or whatever else they are peddling). This racket has
going on for thousands of years... but only now are many of us
up and becoming aware
of the deception, manipulation, control. Yes,
there really is a conspiracy, but when you work with the
Higher Power there is no contest - in the end we
win (so don't worry).
We live in a very dense, materially oriented world where
around us is
living in self imposed, contracted, constricted boxes of
and energy so extreme that our own consciousness and energy is

Bodhisattva - The Path of Compassion
There comes a
time on a souls’ life path where the sense of self awakens
and expands to such a degree... where ones heart become so open
sensitive... that one begins to acutely feel and know the pain and
suffering in this world. Seeing and feeling the
inter-connections and inter-dependencies we all have with each
and all of life, the conclusion arises that the only way to be
free is to help others be free. It is at this major turning point
the soul realizes that personal salvation is not enough. And
for this soul, trying to lighten the planetary heart of its pain
and suffering becomes a major reason
for being. However, the awakened soul must be very clear... to be
effective at serving this higher calling,
one must first be healed and whole. If you carry the
of your own stuff, be it pain and suffering, ulterior motive,
agenda or attachment... Spirit is going to be limited in its
ability to work through your channels. Spirit will of course
still come through, but not to the degree, level or power
task of the aspiring teacher, healer or "Bodhisattva" - no
matter how lofty their goal - is to
be as free and clear as possible (otherwise
it is something akin to "the blind leading the blind").
Liberation starts by working on the self, which then radiates
outward (not the
other way around). The more love and light we have in and for
ourselves... the more we can
give to others. So to all those sensitive souls who feel for
the world and its suffering and want to go out and be teachers
by receiving as much healing work as you can, you are
empowering yourself to be a better channel for Spirit to
"Charity begins at home" is the saying, so let’s start healing
you first... then we can move out and heal the world.
For many Bodhisattva's (including Star Seeded
their initial purpose to incarnate was to
be personal and planetary teachers and healers. Unfortunately,
many lifetimes living in density and illusion, such souls tended
accumulate so much negative “stuff” that they lost sight of their
original purpose. In order for these souls to return on point and
up their work, their first responsibility is to be cleared and
so that the higher power may flow from out of a pure channel.
more Grace you receive, the more it can be bestowed upon others
so that they too may have a greater sense of
love, freedom, awareness and compassion. Thus is awakened the
"Bodhisattva" - one who lives upon the earth plane to be a
Spirit. All else becomes trivial compared to this grand task -
other activity truly engages the heart and soul quite like it.

to all. It may come through the little and quiet things you do,

and energy behind it that makes the difference. You become
link in the chain of enlightened human consciousness. As you
further into this role, your spirit will grow larger and more
powerful. You will become a reborn, renewed and refreshed being,

We are the vehicles for spirit to work through.
Realizing this, the Bodhisattva's primary
responsibility is concerned with removing or clearing the
energetic and vibrational resistances held within their self, for
know, in order to heal and change the world we must
first be healed and whole. Having cleared our channels
enough, the merits of our inner work can then spread
outwards, healing and uplifting the world and its people. If you
