THE PLEIADES

The Pleiades: Source of Inspiration

The Pleiades consists of seven stars, to which certain seekers are invited to receive, while asleep or in deep meditation, knowledge that is engrained in pure Being. However, those who are attuned to the Pleiades must first have integrated their Perfect Mold and should have started to consciously unfold the qualities that are inherent in their Perfect Model. Prior to their invitation, the seekers invited to the Pleiades have been purified and cleansed of the blocks to their astral and mental bodies so that they can assimilate the knowledge received, which their purified mental bodies will later translate and interpret into simple words for the rest of humanity.

The Pleiades have a tremendous influence on our consciousness, and contact creates a sacred “void” in seekers to allow them to integrate with a higher and more subtle level of the Divine and Abstract Mind. The void is a “mental energy” that transforms intuition into consciousness. How? Because receiving such a high dosage of Pleiadian energy unites consciousness and mind so that both can simultaneously perceive spiritual and divine knowledge. Moreover, such sacred receipt of Divine Wisdom also resonates in the self-consciousness of these seekers, which helps them to harmonize their mental and intellectual faculties with those of the Pleiades. This in turn helps them to become powerful “transmitting stations” that broadcast, albeit on a lower level, their own understanding and interpretation of what they have received.

The Pleiades, therefore, open a higher level of consciousness in seekers, unfolding within them the potentials and gifts that are inherent and manifest on the higher planes of Being. Thus, the Pleiades have the power to manifest and energize the qualities that are inherent in the seed ideas of seekers by enhancing their intuitive and mental faculties, or the intelligence of the heart.

The seven planets of the Pleiades thus represent a “school” of learning whose influence awakens and transforms the rational mind into becoming a clear vehicle that can receive and translate into simple words what consciousness experiences and lives. In turn, seekers on that spiritual plane receive an enhanced level of consciousness that overflows with divine seed ideas that must be expressed and shared with others.

The Pleiades open up the intuitional intelligence of the seekers to a high level in which consciousness and knowledge become one. This is the only way that Divine Wisdom and Knowledge express themselves in seekers so that they may share them with others. To be able to impart wisdom to others, seekers must first become that wisdom. 

 The Pleiades’ role, then, is to help seekers become consciously aware of Divine Knowledge and Wisdom, which is why their etheric, astral and mental bodies must be purified before being able to integrate with that spiritual realm. The Pleiades represent a spiritual “station” where the Perfect Model within seekers is energized and comes alive on earth. 

Seekers who resonate with their Ideal Model gradually integrate their consecrated Perfect Mold so as to be assimilated and “remodeled” in it once they have dissolved the illusionary creations of their egos. However, if we want to start the inner process and enter our consecrated Perfect Mold, we must first consider it our “inner tomb.”

The first phase of the process involves great changes within yourself, dying to your old patterns before being “reshaped” in it. Once you are in the mold, you will never be the same, and will remain in it until you and the mold unite, manifesting your Perfect Model in and around you. In due course, you will emerge renewed from the Mold. Initially, however, look upon it as much more than just your tomb. In fact, after the complete purification of your “old” self and purging of deceptive thought and emotional forms, you will discover it to be your sacred “womb,” in which your Divine nature within the Christ Child waits like a sacred seed for the right moment to germinate in your life. That will be the day of your rebirth 


 

EXCERPTS ON THE PLEIADES FROM THE BOOKS OF ALICE BAILEY

There is a saying in the Christian Bible concerning the Pleiades in which Job speaks of "the sweet influences of the Pleiades," whilst some of the Oriental Scriptures affirm that our connection to the Pleiades are made through sound and vibration. In Alice Bailey, it is suggested that perhaps the Pleiades are the source of the atomic life of our Logos, the active intelligent aspect, that one, which was first developed, and which we might call electrical matter. Hence it concerns the astral and etheric aspects of electric matter. We can understand therefore that the influence of the Pleiades concerns the transformation of the vibrational rates of matter.

The word "electricity," may be traced back to the star Electra, which is supposed to be one of the little lost sisters of the seven Pleiades. Perhaps the Pleiades are the source of the atomic life of our Logos, the active intelligent aspect, which we might call electrical matter.

Then there is the relationship of the Pleiades with the Great Bear. There is much that is said about them in Oriental writings. The seven sisters are said to be the seven wives of the seven stars of the Great Bear. Now what is perhaps the truth back of that legend? If the Pleiades are the source of the electrical manifestation, the active intelligent aspect of the solar system, and their energy is that which animates all matter, the we might think that maybe they represent the opposite and complementary aspect, the feminine forming

aspect, the negative pole of electrical energy, whose polar opposite, or the positive aspect of the same energy is their seven husbands, the seven stars of the Great Bear.. Perhaps the union of these two cosmic energies is what produces our solar system. Perhaps these two types of energy, one from the Pleiades and the other from the Great Bear, meet, and in their conjunction produce what we call our solar system.

Another type of energy reaches man from the Pleiades, passing through the Venusian scheme to us. It has a definite effect upon the causal body, and serves to stimulate the heart center.

Hence we begin to understand that the Pleiades are to the solar system, the source of electrical energy, and just as our sun is the embodiment of the heart, or love aspect, of the Logos (Who is Himself the heart of ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID) so the Pleiades are the feminine opposite of the Logos. Ponder upon this idea, for much is contained in this statement. Hence we can say that the feminine aspect of this electrical cosmic energy is the active intelligence that gives birth to CONSCIOUSNESS. As far as man is concerned at present, the energy coming from the Pleiades converges, and seeks to energize man's astral, etheric and physical bodies via the seven etheric centers. (These centers receive the force in a threefold manner, just like the Greek letter PSY does for our mandala number: 10, which shows 4 TRIDENTS around a Chalice. This parenthesis has been added and is in the context of the Perfect Mold and Model) It Purifies... Transforms... and Protects... just like a mother would to nurture her child. Hence, the Force that comes from the Pleiades passes first via the Solar Angel or Soul of man.  

Alcyone is the brightest star in the Pleiades and its energy impregnated the substance of the universe with the quality of mind Therefore, we can understand that electric and cosmic initiation affects the subtle bodies of man and are given from within the inner planes. The result is that it affects the level of consciousness liberating the higher level of intuition and abstract Mind. Most disciples and initiates go this way, and it is the way of liberating humanity from its imprisoning condition. According to Alice bailey, the seven stars of the Pleiades are the goal for the seven types of the Soul Rays, in other words, the 7 Soul Rays receive the influence of the Pleiades, and this is hinted at in the Book of Job, in the words," can you not see the importance of connecting with the sweet influence of the Pleiades?" (Loose modem translation by me) In the mystery of this influence, and in the secret of the sun Sirius, are hidden the facts of our cosmic evolution, and incidentally, therefore, of own our solar system.

Being the feminine aspects of electrical energy, the Pleiades represent as the mothers of the seven aspects of form life and the "wives" of the seven Rishis of the Great Bear." They are connected with the Mother aspect which nurtures the infant Christ. We can guess the importance of the role played by the Pleiades in the REBIRTH process.

According to Alice Bailey through the divine center of intelligent activity, which we call humanity, the fourth kingdom in nature, which is man will eventually act as the mediating principle to all the three lower kingdoms. Humanity is the divine Messenger to the world of form: it is essentially Mercury that brings light and life to all divine manifestations it is the AWAKENING ENERGY of Kundalini and divine world Saviors and Avatars are its eternal symbols.

Again according to Alice bailey, the energy of will—newly released by Sanat Kumara upon our planet—emanates, via the head center of the planetary Logos, from the Great Bear; it is stepped down in vibration via one of the Pleiades (hence its influence upon matter and hence also its pronounced effects upon humanity) and so enters into the solar system. It is there absorbed by that major center of our planetary life to, which we give the name. Shamballa. Its effect is necessarily twofold. It produces in certain nations, races and individuals, a welling up of the self-will or of the will-to-power, which is characteristic of the developed lower nature, the personality aspect of integrated selfhood. It produces—though less readily—a stimulation of the will-to-serve the plan as it is grasped by the world aspirants, the world disciples and initiates. Thus are the purposes of Deity materialized.

All the Masters (and not only Those upon the fifth ray) receive careful training in the manipulation of energies, and hence the statement of the Master K.H. to His disciples that the occultist has to learn to master and control the forces and energies within himself; the disciple and the initiate work with hierarchical energies and with the forces of the kingdoms of nature in the three worlds; the Master receives instruction in the handling of the energies which are extra-planetary but within the solar ring-pass-not. Those Masters Whose decision it is to tread the second Path are taught the control and direction of systemic energies and of certain energies emanating from Libra and from one of the stars in the constellation of the Great Bear. In the more advanced stages of Their work, and when the Master is far more advanced than the word indicates. He works consciously upon the cosmic mental plane; His activities will then be concerned with the relation of the energies of the Great Bear to the Pleiades, and their dual relationship (a higher correspondence to atma-buddhi) to the solar system and only incidentally to our Earth. Great is the interlocking, the interdependence and the interpenetration!
