You are a Character on a Magickal Adventure
Consider any Story you have read.
Chances are it's a tale about some character, who starts out somewhere, goes on an adventure, and ends up somewhere else. Such is the model for all heroic journeys, in which there is some kind of progression, across a landscape of unforeseen circumstance, which demands an evolution of the character.
Just like a character in any book, this is happening to You. Your life, all lives, are threads, a lifeline or storyline upon which events happen. Even greater, you are but one character in a much larger tale, a Great Story which links us all together in an emerging humanity.
In the context of the yoga of Story, your timeline is the spine of your adventure. Fundamental to the understanding of your seed within and the journey to reveal your Gift to the World.
Such is the etching of your sacred Path across the adventure of your. Life. Such is your unique thread in the tapestry of the Great Story.
As we move through our lives, events happen in a sequential way. There is the Past, the Present moment, and the Future. In the context of the Mythica, this progression is the development of your Character over the trials and triumphs of their lives, occurring as all sorts of circumstance on the surface, subtle, and causal levels of our awareness.
It is this movement of significant events in one's life in which one we face our challenges and learn the valuable lessons of what it means to be human at this time.
To demonstrate this progression, Authors in the Mythica document their own timeline, their own movement through the flow of their lives, to showcase the archetype of the heroic journey, and prove the principles of the Mythica Academy, witnessing our heroic journey and the techniques we use to change our reality.
We illuminate our personal timeline as a movement through the realms of our own consciousness, detailing the synchronicities and meaningful circumstance both proves the subtle techniques of self-development and reveals the magickal World.
This is done to inspire Readers to take a deeper look at their own timeline, their own sacred Path, and discover the meaning hidden within their own lives.
Yet while the progression of one's individual timeline is a beautiful thing, it is but one single thread in the much larger tapestry of the Great Story, the weave of synchronicity and circumstance that reveals our shared interconnectivity and Collective consciousness.
Academy - The Great Story
We are all Connected
At the Heart of the Mythica is the understanding that there is no separation. That all of our destinies, all of our Stories, are linked. That we move across timespace along threads of personal heroism, weaving and interweaving through a great Ocean of subtle vibration, a web of interconnected synchronicity whose nodes reveal the bigger picture of our shared unfoldment.
As we expand our vantage from the singular threadline of our personal Story, we come to see ALL threadlines, all timelines, as being threads in a much larger tapestry. A Great Story that connects all of us, mapping out the much larger World of our shared synchronicities and connections.
It is when we shift our vantage to this much larger perspective, that we see how we are all individual Characters, with our own sacred timelines, connecting with each other on our many adventures like constellations of stars upon the Earth.
See the Big Picture
Such is the real cloud atlas of our lives, the underlying tapestry of synchronicity and kismet in which we see that every event, every thought we have, every bit of trial and triumph upon our individual heroic journey is intricately connected to the many other Selves we meet upon the Path, all part of a singular and unified field of shared unfoldment.
When we see things from this vantage, it is easier to understand the Truth that we are a Collective consciousness, many points of view within a singular entity.
Yet to get to this point of view is challenging, for it requires a way of seeing that has embodied it's Knowing.
To illuminate the nature of this great skein of timespace, revealing a vision into the Great Unfoldment, is why the Mythica was created.
Academy - The World Tree
Mythologies exist for a reason. They are the echoes of remembrance, of the Knowing that sits beyond the limited horizons of our blossoming consciousness. Across the many spiritualities and religions that dot the landscape of our beautiful planet, there is the Idea of a Great Tree, a World Tree, whose branches connect all of the Creation. Such is a concept deeply tied into the rainbow bridge (road) and our journey to the manifestation of Heaven on Earth.
Understanding the nature of the World Tree can be challenging, for like all aspects of the Surface and Subtle perception of reality, it's branches are far more than they appear on the surface.
In simpliity, all Worlds exist, fluttering like leaves on the branches and rootwork of the World Tree. To walk the rainbow bridge is to move between these worlds, moving across the many realms of the Akasha. In this context, the Tree is not so much a tree as we classically understand it, but a vast and all encompassing network of interwoven roots, connecting all the parts of Creation. It is the Heart of Gaia, the nature of form in the Earth plane.
As with all aspects of our perception of reality, the World Tree can be witnessed from the surface and subtle planes of our awareness. Just as the gross physical manifestations of our reality is but the surface perception of a much deeper elementalism, so does the World Tree exist in both the "physical" and "energetic" octaves of it's own Nature.
The Big Picture - The Akasha and the World Tree
In the most basic of ways, the World Tree, with it's interconnected weaving of rootwork and foliage between the surface and subtle aspects of our experience IS the blueprint for the Paths through the Akasha, the very structure of the web beneath the Worlds. In this context, our Paths upon the surface of What Is are equivalent to movements along these roots and branches in the underscape of our vibrational embodiment, as seen in the slider above.In context, The World Tree, with it's many twisting paths and leafwork, is the essence of physical reality itself. The Land upon which all Paths walk through the Akasha.
In the context of the Mythica, the journey "into the Mythica" is the movement into the brighter octaves of potential reality that exist within the Akasha, following the rainbow roads along the branches of the World Tree to new realms.
The relationship between the World Tree and the Akasha can be visualized as the Tree as the aspect of form, of Earth, within the Akasha, the substance of the ethers of everything. As spiritual beings on a sacred Quest through the landscape of the material plane, our many Paths move along the roots and branches of the Tree, who earthly tendrils express across the starscape of the Akasha.
Surface & Subtle - Paths of the Tree
There are many realities, wrought from the substance of our current Self, the prism of Light that forms the hologram of our current manifestation. Many forms of new thought have a tendency to focus on the Self from the perspective of separation, in which we imagine our Selves to be distant from the nature of Gaia, the planet that has given birth to our current vessel. Yet this is incorrect. We are fundamentally, intrinsically part of the vast network of the ecosphere of this planet, moving along the rootwork of the Akashic substance of the World Tree. In the context of the Mythica, to travel to these realities along the rainbow road is a movement through Realms.
As we make our way through the realms of our Self, we travel deeper into the luminance aspects of the World Tree, the Golden tones of the rainbow road, the embodiment of Heaven on Earth.
Academy - The Rainbow Road (Bridge)
"All Paths walk the rainbow road
through every grove and fair abode
the road that travels through the Tree
the rainbow of the hue and me"
Central to the journey deeper into the Mythica is the understanding of the rainbow road, what in some interpretations is called the bifrost, or the rainbow bridge.
It is this road upon which we travel, moving from Shadow to the Brightlands across the vibrational embodiment of our inner and outer circumstance. In which we change the frequency and luminance of our own prismatic array, thus changing the reflected reality in which we live. Such is the causeway between the infinite realms of the Akasha. Realities that exist in different configurations and luminance. In the context of our heroic journey, it is the rainbow road that moves between these realities. It is the pathway through the roots of the World Tree, the network of realities that exist within our human potential.
It is a thing deeply related to the physics of the quest.
Seen from the depths of form, we live in the holographic reflection of our own substance. Within the actual, physical yet-oft-subtle manifestation of our own prism of Self, the unique splay of colours and textures, that make up our current Character in the Great Story. This reflection that we live within is a realm. A state of being that is also a physical circumstance.
It is also our current definition of Self. Of who we imagine we are.
On a structural level of elements, we are made of particular hues, tones of vibration. These hues create the halo of our circumstance, the manifestation that surrounds our current Self. When we change those hues, when we move across the rainbow road of our own Self, we change our reality.
When we change the substance of our prism, the substance of our 'outer' reality changes in perfect reflection. As adventurers, our intention is to gain discernment on that relationship, recognizing the nature of realms and how to walk the rainbow road between them.
To travel between realms is not easy. It is a real yoga, demanding that we resolve the patterns within our current Self that are creating the halo of our circumstance. Yet when we do this, when we change the luminance and hue of the colours that make up our prism of Self, we literally change realities. We walk the rainbow road. The bifrost, between the many realms of the World Tree, itself a reflection of the many colours of our hue-man rainbow.
When we truly understand this, we see that our 'outer' experience is but a reflection of our 'inner' vibrational state. That as we travel through our lives, we are moving through a landscape of inner change. A landscape which is *mirrored* in the World around us.
It is a thing directly tied into realms. To live in a particular realm or state of being is to live in that reality. When we travel across the realms of the Mythica, we are actively shifting the tones of our own substance in relation to experience. Finding our way across the octaves of the Creation from Shadow to the Brightlands along the threadline of our heroic journey.
Yet it is one thing to speak of such things, and quite another to demonstrate them. Such is the reasoning behind the Journey Home, to track out the realms, deepening my understanding of what the Rainbow Bridge actually was, what it connected to, and how such things played out in the human plane.
In pre-Ascendent mythology, beings have had a tendency to displace spiritual Truths, seeing them outside of their Self, yet this in incorrect. In Truth, there is only the Self, and all such legends and fable are borne from the many aspects of that singular Form.
To put this another way,
You are more than you know. Each of us is something much greater, possessing a wingspan that touches the horizon, waiting to be unfurled. Within each of us lies a Divinity, waiting to be seen. Though we often do not remember, the myths and legends that we tell are not about beings outside our Selves, but of the deeper, realized aspect of our own essence. For so long, humanity has forgotten. Yet the Truth is this – We are the Gods. We are the Goddesses. Coming to Remember who we really are.
Consciousness exists on many octaves. The simple comparison is octaves in music. The same pattern can exist in many ranges; yet becomes brighter or muddier, depending on the octave in which it is played.
Similarly, human beings exist on multiple octaves of their own Awakening. From this perspective, there would be dimmer or brighter octaves of a basic imprint, a basic pattern. These are the octaves of the bifrost, the rainbow bridgebetween realms.
In pre-Ascension mythology, the bifrost; also known as the rainbow bridge, is meant to signify a mode of transportation between different realms, notably from the realm of the “mundane’ to the realm of the ‘Divine’. It is a concept intrinsically connected with the World Tree.
The Bifrost, also know as the rainbow bridge, has specific definition within the context of the Mythica. In accordance with the Law of Reflection and the principles of As Above, So Below and As Within, So Without; the octaves of the rainbow bridge represent the different luminances and thus actualization of our inherent Divine powers.
Movement along the octaves of the bifrost is understood in the context of the Mythica when we realize the Truth – That we are Divine beings in a state of temporary amnesia. That the movement between the realms of ‘Asgard’ and ‘Midgard’ is a change in the dimensions of the Self; in which we live in the mundane or siddhic, Awakened version of our incarnate Selves; our enlightenment, our DNA, etc.
To further illustrate the physics of this, we look at the octaves of a piano, or the octaves of colour along a rainbow; applying the dynamic to the principle of our own current luminance. In this context, the dimmer and muddier the Light passing through our human Selves; the more coarse, the more crude, the more unaware and mundane of a World we live within.
This is the idea of living at a dim octave of who we potentially are.
Comparatively; the brighter, clearer, and more refined our human Selves, the more Light can pass through us; resulting in a siddhic, empowered, magickal state of being.
This is the idea of living at a bright octave, one of Awakened potential and siddhic virtue.
To further illustrate this example; observe this chart of fibonacci chimes as related to the octaves of music. The colour pattern repeats, just as the melody of our Story repeats; yet at dimmer or brighter octaves of it’s archetypical nature.
This also corresponds to the idea of dimmer or brighter chakras along the rainbow bridge of one’s Self. As our chakras clear, more Light may pass through the prism of our incarnate vessel; which causes us to live in a clearer, brighter halo. We literally travel through another dimensia of the World Tree; sharing a World that resolves in moments of Space and Time at a particular octave of Depth.
This depth, applied in terms of colours, can either be a dim or bright version of it’s own colourscape. If we look at this like a painting, an incarnate existing in a bright octave of itself experiences a deep and rich version of it’s own colours, whereas a being loving in a dim version of itself experiences a washed-out, bland version of itself.
The embodied demonstration of the octaves of the bifrost can be shown in a beautiful parable. Envision that you are observing a party. There are a number of people around a fire. In the dim octaves of the rainbow bridge; the perception and actions of the people are not clear. Their actions are distorted, far removed from the virtues of Love, of Harmony and of Wholeness. There is unhealthy food, devoid of life. Fights break out amongst the people. There is abuse; there is rape. There is drug addiction to such detriments as meth or heroin or cocaine. It is a cruel environment dim in luminance.
Now envision the same party, with the same people; only an octave brighter. Things have changed. The melody; that is, the archetypical pattern that is playing out; remains the same; yet it is played on a brighter timbre of our human luminance. It is still coarse, still rough. Yet perhaps there is no rape and minimal fighting. There is disorderly, disrespectful conduct; yet it is slightly better. There are less instances of truly Self-destructive behaviour. There is some friendship and alliance, though it may be shallow.
Brighten the octave again. The same people. The same fire. Only this time, on a brighter octave of the rainbow bridge. They are cleaner. There is some Love; there is some harmony. The entheogens that are used are less destructive, cannabis and the like. Perhaps there are some vegetarian options. Though mostly mundane, some of the conversations start moving towards matters of Spirit and the Heart.
Next octave. Same people. Same fire. Yet brighter. ….
Academy - Realms
(One's Path occurs on both the surface and subtle levels of perception as a movement through realms)
Realms are the Landscape of the Heroic Journey. They are what You navigate on your Compass of Self.
Consider your Path. A threadline of experiences, of trials and triumphs over our current lifetime and beyond. It is a thing that occurs on both the surface and subtle aspects of our experience. Our Path is not simply a thing that occurs in the gross physical Universe, it is also a movement through the conscious and subconscious patterns within our own consciousness. It is in the fusion of these things that we come to see the nature of the realms through which we move.
While we may move through a physical location, we are simultaneously moving through a psychic landscape, filled with the various patterns that make up our current experience. In the above slider, a traveler stands on a physical road, looking onward. Yet this is merely the surface of his experience. In the subtle realms, he moves through a deep and energetic inner landscape, made of the current qualities of his lens of Self. Such forms the topography of one's mythical journey across their experience.
Very often in modern spirituality we hear the expression, "Everything is just a reflection", or that we "live in a holographic Universe". In ancient texts the phrase 'As within, so without' is often used to convey the same principle. In essence, the idea is that we live in the substance of our own vibrational substance, and that by changing what is within, we change what is without.
In the context of the Mythica, it is the realms which we travel through on the compass of the Self.
We live in the realm of our own Self. Of the very vibrations that make up our current form. Such forms the very reality in which we exist.
What realm do we live in? Is it one of conflict? Of Fire? Or Water? Is it a realm of financial stability, or one of scarcity? Is it one of magick and wonder, or a realm of questions with answers?
All of these are realms. Vibrational territories made of the elements of the material plane. When we recognize these qualities and how they form the basis of our reality, we are able to see the compass of our mythical journey.
In the Mythica, we go deeply into this concept, expanding on it to reveal the landscape of our heroic adventure and it's relationship to our current Self. Such becomes the foundation of our progression across the trials and triumphs of our heroic journey, in which we live within the actual manifestation of our own current substance, manifest.
In the context of the Mythica, all realms exist as destinations along the axis of the World Tree, the lens of one's Self. As one moves through the prism of their Self, they travel the rainbow bridge between different realities, known in the Mythica as REALMS.
It is tied directly into the nature of the lens of the Self and the very specific qualities that make up our current experience. In essence, we live in the holographic pattern of our own substance, the unique splay of vibrational qualities that make up our current Self. This in turn invokes the very reality that we live within, the realm of our particular form. They are both a psychic and a physical landscape, forming the ground upon which our many sacred Paths take foot. Such is the foundation of the heroic landscape, the mythopoetic topography of one's sacred Path.
As we navigate through these vibrational qualities, we travel through the manifestation of that reflection, a literal, physical landscape which reflects whatever aspect we are currently embodying. Along our journey, the changing of these qualities finds it's equivalent in the changing of our circumstance, for such is the physics of the Quest.
From the vantage of legend, we move through the Akasha, the starscape of our intersecting Paths, embodied in the union of the underworld and overworld of the World Tree.
Realms are both Psychic and Physical
On our sacred Path we are always moving through realms. While in the Mythica we focus strongly on the actual physical manifestation of the Worlds of Magick, such are merely one aspect of the vastness of realms that exist within the Creation.
To be clear - All aspects of our experience are a realm, wrought of the very substance of our current consciousness. When we dream, we are stepping into the realm of Dreams. When we meditate, we step into realms of stillness and clarity. When we go on journeys into the Astral or etheric planes (realms), when we dance through the shamanic realities of the plant deva, we are traveling through realms. When we fantasize, when we imagine, we are embodying the qualities of that vibration through our being, experiencing our movement through the many planes of our perception on our sacred journey. In all ways, we are always moving through realms.
As we come to see the topography of the magickal World, we see that all of these aspects are realms unto themselves, places where we work through the patterns deep within our consciousness in the manifest dream that is the Akasha.
Heaven on Earth is a Realm
Scarcity is a Realm
Abundance is a Realm
Heaven on Earth is a Realm.
We exist in a World in crisis, where the ideals of compassion, virtue, honour and Love are often buried beneath an avalanche of unprocessed patterns that lay within the subconscious of the Self. In order to make the journey to Heaven on Earth, we must clear these patterns, allowing us to perceive the deeper and more Abundant reality that surrounds us.
Our outer reality is caused by our internal state, which is composed of the various vibrational qualities that make up our current lens of Self. When are experiencing particular conditions in our reality, they are caused by our internal landscape which in turn creates the external landscape. In the context of the Mythica, it is when we change those inner vibrations that we step into a new reality. On a structural level, this is caused by the state of the vibrational quality within the Self. These vibrational qualities exist in either a purified or defiled state, which then gives rise to the psychoemotional conditions of our journey across the realms.
As we make the journey towards the realms of Heaven on Earth, we must clear these vibrations and return them to a state of harmony with God's Grace. When we do this, the distortions on our lens dissolve, and we are able to both see and receive the Goodness and Abundance that are our birthright. Clearing these patterns is the very essence of all healing, which moves to return our consciousness to a state of clarity and wholeness.
Realms are bigger than You
It is a yogic Truth that there is no separation. All of our Paths are connected, part of the much larger tapestry of the Akasha. Realms are not isolated to individuals. Many beings share the particular vibrational qualities that define the various realms, intersecting with each other in shared purposing throughout the synchronicities of their lives. It is in this crucial understanding that the mapwork of the many realms of the Creation becomes apparent, where we realize that we live in a multitude of magickal realities occurring for us in accordance with the current vibrational qualities on the lens of our Self.
