You’ve done some really great work in preparing the space that your Temple of the Wise will inhabit! The attention to detail and diligence in finding suitable ground and clearing it of the debris and distractions that would hinder progress have paid off. You are now ready to craft the blueprints that will become the image of what you wish your Temple to be.
In magical practice the ability to visualize the goal desired is an important skill to develop. The clearer and more detailed the process and steps taken towards final goal puts you that much closer towards seeing the manifestation of what has been, essentially, called into being. When we work in the astral realms, the thoughtforms that are created and drawn in shape by the matter of the astral hold the potential to become the enlivened visage of what the mind and heart have created. The very act of setting your consciousness with intention upon the molding essence of the etheric space becomes the sculptor.
So, with these thoughts in mind,I want you to begin drawing up the plans for your Temple appearance.
Thoughts to keep in Mind….
The space you have chosen within this Forest of magick and power will accommodate whatever size or shape you wish your Temple to have. Over time you will see that the landscaping surrounding your Temple will change as well, adapting and reforming as needed in accord with the energy of the building you have crafted. Remember to be creative, yet allow flexibility of design ideas and ultimately settle on what feels right for now. Decide if you wish to have your Temple elevated a bit and accessed by steps leading upwards. Or perhaps you wish to have a path leading into the front entrance.
The Blueprint of Design
Find a space where you will not be disturbed and bring paper and pen with you. It is preferable to use these tools rather than a computer because of the kinesthetic energetic employed.
Take a few deep breaths and then begin to sketch out, write a narrative or simply list the details of your Temple. These are the blueprints of building. When your list is complete, take time to offer up thanks for this Divine inspiration.
Soften your gaze, looking at the paper and details written or drawn upon it. Breathe fully and deeply into this space of your sitting and holding the manifest representation of what you desire to create. Gently allow your eyes to close, still holding the blueprint fixed in your mind’s eye and the paper in your hands.
Shift your attention to the space between your brows and the inner screen of your meditative conscious mind. Sit as observer of this screen, taking note of the form of this inner landscape. Now see yourself standing and walking towards this inner screen. A pin- point of cobalt blue light forms just ahead of you and begins expanding in diameter as you walk towards it. When you arrive at the place of being immediately in front of this vibrant blue veil, it has expanded, stretched and opened to become an arched gateway. The faint glimmer of sparkling blue shines within its opening and you feel called to step into this place.
You step through the veiling and find yourself standing in the center of the space you have lovingly cleared and prepared for this Temple. You look around at the surrounding Trees, memories flooding in and tone a low and sustained “OM” of greeting to this sacred space. As before, the ground responds to the vibration of sound and the inhalation and exhale of your breath; taking on a light that shine brilliantly from all levels of the space. This land has been claimed and cleared by you and it takes only the intent of your connection to feel the land welcoming you.
You call forth the image of what you have designed as your Temple. See it with as much clarity as possible as it rises from the ground upon which you are standing and takes form around you and you find yourself now standing in the Central Hall. Breathe into this space and allow the edges of wall or boundary to reach and spread out as far as is needed.
You look around at call into presence Four Sturdy Pillars forming a large square; each pillar marking the points of the Alchemical Elemental Quarters. Allow these to take whatever color and material of building they wish. Within every (4 total) space of opening between two Pillars a Door and walls of connection form. Allow the Doors and connecting walls to take whatever material and shape they wish.
You step forward and approach one of the Doors, pushing it gently open and see that it leads into a Large Hall. The room may have any shape you wish and will probably change its size and shape as you begin to furnish the interior. You cross its threshold and enter the space and with each step the room takes on more clarity and form. Simply look around and breathe into this space as it is now and when you are ready pass through the doorway and back into the Central Hall. Do this with each of the remaining 3 Doors; returning to the Central Hall when completed.
Stand for a time in this center point, looking around at what has manifested thus far. Allow the beauty of your space and exhilaration of creative effort to move through you. You breathe deeply and fully into this space and look upwards towards the ceiling. You think on the expanse and flexibility of this Temple’s creation and as these thoughts pass easily through your mind, you take note that two more floors rise from the space of your standing. The flooring appears transparent and you can see the Four Pillars reaching upwards and through each. The entire building rises extending up three stories high.
As you continue to breathe deeply and fully into these new additions, the flooring of each becomes solid and the ceiling above you is no longer transparent bringing you back to the enclosure of this Ground Floor. Take some time to simply “be” in this Temple and when you feel all is complete for now, offer up thanks to the Inspired Divine that have aided in its building.
It is time to leave this space. You will have many more journeys here and you feel the anticipation of the Great Work that will done in your temple of the Wise. But, for now your work is complete. As these thoughts move through you all fades as the blue veiling of the “between” surrounds you. You breathe deeply, stepping through this veiling and find yourself once again as observer of your inner screen of visioning. The Temple and the great work of magick set into action have faded, but the memory of the experience and the gift of a solid foundation and a space of readiness for the next phase of learning courses strongly through you.
Offer up thanks for the wisdom of this journey and breathe into the intent of moving back into your physical state and physical room of beginning. Each breath draws you back into your body and the gentle rise and fall of your chest. And, when you are ready, gently flutter your eyes open and be present in the here and now. Blessed Be!
