Academy Fundamentals - Realms and Realities

Realm - A State of Being Defined as a Location

Realms are the core of the Mythica.  They are the landscape of the subtle world which exists within and without the self.  They are the deeper map to the World.

As we along the timeline of our life across the planet, we move through the realms, along the string of synchronicities which define our inner and outer experience.  Yet while it is beautiful to travel outwardly on one’s journey, it is not necessary.  At their core, realms are both the inner and outer landscapes of the world, and are accessible to all in one way or another..  It depends on who we are being.  You could walk for a lifetime, and stay within the same realms. Or you could sit perfectly still, and move through them all.

Realms are the landscape of our karmas.  The reality we live within.

They are both internal and external. One can be in realms of peacefulness and harmony while all around them is chaos and uncertainty. Likewise, one can be in total disarray within a peaceful circumstance.

Realms are also external. One can be in a realm of lavish fortune and flushness of vitality, loved and appreciated, or one can live in scarcity, aching for love and tenderness. The possibilities are infinite, for the realms are the geography of the Akasha – the stage on which our stories unfold.

You live in the realms of You

On a structural level, realms are made of impressions. The smallest units of meaning that exist in the Creation. Wrought from primal elements that give rise to all the emotions, reactions, responses and revelations that occur across the human condition, ranging from the shallow amnesia of our confusions to the enlightening brilliance of our awakening. They are the substance of our personal and collective realities, manifest as the landscape of our lives, occurring on the surface of Gaia.


The Structure of Realms

Inner World Outer World

Your inner and outer worlds are the same.

In the simplest understanding, the realm (or ‘reality’) that one lives within is related to one’s vibrational state. To the very specific hues and textures of vibration that make up our inner and outer landscape. Depending on the textures of that vibrational pattern, we arrive in synchronicities, in actual manifest realities, that reflect our inner state. We live, literally, in the substance of our own self.

One’s inner vibrational state is the truth of where they are. It is the real landscape of their Path, that which lay beneath the surface of perception in the subtle and causal depths of who we are.  Seen on an electromagnetic level, this vibrational state and the psychoemotional terrain one moves through can be seen as a rainbow of energies moving up one’s spine.  These energy centers, sometimes called chakras, are the vibrational base that creates our perception and reception of reality.  They are the lens, the stained glas window through which awareness looks into the world.  It is the rainbow of our reality, the set of conditions that we live within.

Depending on the structure and coherence of this inner rainbow, we live in an outer reality that matches it’s vibrational structure.  Meaning – We live in the reflection of our own substance.  In a unique reality based on our own vibrational state.

Realms are what we journey through in the Mythica.  The subtle landscape upon which all realities exist.  They are the territories of the magical world.  Realms are the territories that are mapped in the Maps of the Mythica.  They are what are divined through the use of the Compass.

Like all aspects of the Creation, all realms of reality are made of the prime elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether.

There is a subtle landscape to the world

There is an infinite range of realms and realities that exist within the Creation, each existing at a certain moment on space, time and depth of being.

Key to this is understanding that your inner world manifests your outer.  That the elemental energies that make up your current self are literally manifesting themselves as your current reality.  It means you are living in the substance of your own story, in the refletion of your own energies.

As we move along the surface of the planet, we are simultaneously moving through this vast and subtle topography.  Through the many states of being that define our stories.  Together these things form the foundation for all worlds, also known as realms or realities.

There are Worlds within the World

All Stories happen on a landscape. A mythical topography that defines the heroic journey of the character. While there are many ways to present that landscape, it is always one of movement through the psychic and physical territories of one’s own self and their adventure upon the earth.  It is at the intersect of these points, of the inner and outer, the surface and the subtle, that we discover the many realities, the many worlds of manifestation that lay upon the roots and branches of the World Tree.  Such as the subtle landscapes of legend upon which our path unfolds.

In the simplest sense, a realm is an entire reality, a world of conditions that exist at a certain coordinate of the World Tree.  It is where you are, It’s your state of being defined as a location.  The particular set of coordinates on the subtle maps that define your reality at any given moment.  As we explore the realms, we are looking at your sacred Path as a movement across a landscape of archetypical energies which mirror the vibrations of our inner World.

There are worlds beneath the world.  Fields of subtle vibration that form the deeper substance of reality.  These are the underlands, the landscapes of legend which may be perceived on the subtle layer of Gaia’s ecosystem.


Realms do not simply exist in our inner landscape.  Like all things, they are part of the larger universe, existing in both the inner and outer worlds.  All across the planet there are places of distinctive vibration, places of  particular qualities of energy, all of which are part of the landscapes of legend that exist here, now, in the subtle perception of the real physical world.  As part of our sacred adventure of life, we are blessed to discover the realms that exist both within and without, to find the places on the surface of the planet that are made of the textures of our own resolving vibration.

As explorers of the new world, we are always discovering new realms.  New places of inner and outer reality.  As we travel along our journey, we map these places, revealing the deeper aspects of the tree of life that links us all.  Moving from one landscape to another on the road to a more heavenly earth. 

Think of a map. Yet instead of states and towns, think of states of being. Emotional states. Psychic states. Different aspects of an inner journey happening simultaneously with our outer movement through life.  It is a map entirely unique to you, made of the very colors of vibration that make up your inner world.  As you travel along your sacred path, your rainbow bridge between realms, gradually becoming who you are meant to be, it is this landscape that you travel.  The realms of your own rainbow in the manifest world.

Seen on the subtle and causal planes of awareness, these vibrational patterns manifest as entirely manifest realities.  Landscapes of interwoven synchronicities and resolving elements which lay beneath the surface of our everyday lives.

We travel through Qualities of Consciousness

We are always moving through realms.  Through states of being seen as a location.  Through realities made of archetypical qualities of consciousness woven from the colors of our inner world.  Such is the landscape of our heroic journey, across all the worlds in existence.  On our quest, we move through those realms, transforming our relationship to that quality so as to move between realities.

When we live in a certain realm of being, we encounter the circumstances of that realm.  For example, sometimes we’re in a state of being that’s expansive. Where we feel connected, with access to our personal gifts and talents. Other times, we don’t. We feel blocked, confused, distorted.  Seen in another way, sometimes we’re feeling the magic.  In a place of deep sensory awareness, a feeling of remembrance and a more mythical perception of life.  Other times, we don’t.  We’re in a more mundane state of being.  A more mundane realm of existence.  As explorers of the magical world, we ask the question – how do we get to a more magical realm of being? How do we move from scarcity to abundance, from confusion to clarity, from shadow back into light?

To travel between realities, one must learn to change the colors of their own inner rainbow.  To clear and clarify the energies of their chakras and the pattern of manifestation they live within.  Such is the great quest along one’s personal rainbow road, their unique journey to a more heavenly earth across the landscapes of their legend.

Realms have Coordinates

In the larger expanse of the Akasha, realms have coordinates.  Specific moments in spacetime when they appear, when the primal elements arrange to create a particular reality.  In the context of Mythos Academy, these are known as locus points.
