86-2017-LESSON TEN- THE ASTRAL PLANE - 10 9 17

There are three World Teachers
Jesus the Christ; Djwal Khwal, and Master Kutumi 
Djwal Khwal speaks to us concerning the Astral Plane:

(1)One of the hardest Planes to understand is the Astral Plane; because of its nearness to the Physical Plane, we should all have to learn an understand and to comprehend its nature; and to learn to stand free from it and then work on it . . . 

The appearance of the Astral Plane when first definitely seen by the "opened eye" of the aspirant, is one of dense fog, confusion, changing forms, interpenetrating and intermingling colors, and is of such a kaleidoscopic appearance, that the hopelessness of the enterprise seems overwhelming.  It is not light, but starry, or clear.  It is apparently impenetrable disorder, for it is the meeting ground of forces.  Because the forces in the aspirant's own body are equaly in disorder, he blends in with the surrounding chaos to such an extent, that it is at first almost impossible for the onlooking soul to dissociate its own astral mechanism from the astral mechanism of humanity as a whole and from the astral mechanism of the world.

One of the first things then that the aspirant has to learn, is to dissociate his own aura in the emotional sense from that of his surroundings, and much time is expended in learning to do this.  It is for this reason that one of the first qualifications of discipleship is discrimination, for it is through the use of the mind, as analyzer and separator, that the astral body is brought under control.

Secondly, the astral plane is the plane of illusion, of glamor, and of a distorted presentation of reality.  The reason for this is that every individual in the world is busy working in astral matter, and the potency of human desire and of world desire produces that constant "out picturing" and form building which leads to the most concrete effects of astral matter.  Individual desire, national desire, racial desire, the desire of humanity, as a whole, plus the instinctual desire of all subhuman lives causes a constant changing and shifting of the substance of the plane; there is a building of the temporary forms, some of rare beauty, and a vitalizing by the astral energy of the creator.  Add to these forms  that persistent and steadily growing scenario we call the "akashic records" which concern the emotional history of the past; add the activities of the discarnate lives which are passing through the astral plane, either out of or towards incarnation; add the potent desire purified and intelligent, of all superhuman Lives, including those of the occult planetary Hierarchy, and the sum total of forces present is stupendous.  All play upon, around and through every human being, and according to the caliber of his physical body, and the condition of his centers, will be his response.  Through this illusory panorama, the real aspirant has to make his way, finding the clue or thread which will lead him out of the maze, and holding fast to each tiny fragment of reality as it presents itself to him, learning to distinguish truth from glamor, the permanent from the impermanent and the certainty from the unreal . . .

In the past, the disciple was either chosen or chose to isolate himself or herself in a monastery or convent, away from the material world.  There, they could contemplate, meditate, pray and fast, without interference from worldly materialism or the stress of working in large cities, with all the stress of coping, commuting and interacting with others who are not spiritually inclined or raising a family, working in the rural communities and keeping all the balls in the air while trying to survive in a stressful world.

Today, the Hierarchy has reached out to those within society who want to do service, make a difference while finding answers to their questions.  It was decided around the turn of the Century that an individual, male or female, who had passed certain initiations in their lives, could enter upon the path of initiation without having to go into a monastery or convent, they could carry on with their lives - work, marry, have a family, but give a certain amount of time to the development and expansion of their consciousness.  The Master El Morya, who is head of the Darjeeling Council; and the Master Kuthumi, along with the Master Djwal Khwal were assigned  the stupendous initiation of opening the ancient texts and translating them into many languages through their disciple,  Madame Blatvatsky and her lifelong devotion to these Mahatmas, while receiving their dictations of the arcane knowledge from the Himalayas to her suite of rooms in New  York City.  She was the most devoted of students, and gave her life to the "great work" that she produced through her pen. If anyone is interested, they should read her life story and they'll find that the word "devotee" would definitely fit her to a tee.  We understand that she was extremely bright and she had reached a point in her "journey of the soul" where she was the brightest star the Masters could find, who could not only understand the ancient teachings but could expound and deliver to heads of state, as well as heads of churches on the Arcane knowledge, quoting from the sancrit, the Book of Dyzan, the Upanishads, the Vedas; the Bible;  and the Root Races to name a few. I would love to have been part of her student body for I found her to be as fascinating and brilliant and that her knowledge on just about any subject to be more advanced than any of her contemporaries at that time.  This is because she had all of her centers opened and balanced as well as her Third Eye.  She had been in training in the Himalayas when she was quite young, and was under the tutorledge of  both Master El Morya and Master Kuthumi, so that when she began to write the four great Books, she spent the rest of her life writing from dawn to dusk, while moving from one area to another around the globe, finally settling in India where she and Colonel Olcott set up the foundation and teaching center for Theosophy - mf

No glamor, no illusion can long hold the man who has set himself the task of treading the razor-edged Path which leads through the wilderness, through the thick-set forest, through the deep waters of sorrow and distress, through the alley of sacrifice, and over the mountains of vision to the gate of Deliverance.  He may travel sometimes in the dark - and the illusion of darkness is very  real; he may  travel sometimes in a light so dazzling and bewildering the he can scarcely see the way ahead; he may know what it is to falter on the Path, and to drop under the fatique of service and of strife; he may be  temporarily sidetracked and wander down the by-paths of ambition, of self-interest and of material enchantment, but the lapse will be but brief.  Nothing in heaven or hell, on earth or elsewhere, can prevent the progress of the man who has awakened to the illusion, who has glimpsed the reality beyond the glamor of the astral plane, and who has heard, even if only once, the clarion call of his own soul.

How many of us have had the same experiences as described above; and have wandered far afield only to turn once again and with great humility began to enter upon the steep, rocky and treacheous path once more - "the Path of Attainment", because the only way that we know for sure that our Soul is leading us is when, we do head down the wide avenues and by-paths only to realize what a waste of time and energy we've expended on "the material world" when we could be far advanced along the Path. BUT, all is not lost, because it is by these very experiences that we also begin to grow and to know the REAL from the UNREAL,  clear thinking from illusion and truth from falsehood - how else can we learn if we do not question, challenge and finally recognize the truth behind the veil. - mf

(2) The secret of the Master is the discovery that there is no astral plane, he finds that the astral plane is a figment of the imagination, and has been created through the uncontrolled use of the creative imagination and the misuse of the magical powers.  The work of the Hierarchy is primarily to bring to an end the shadows and to dispel the moisture:  spirit and matter are the two realities which constitute the unity, and that it is only in time and in space, and through the cyclic misuse of the magical and psychic powers, that the astral plane of the great illusion has come into being, and is now so real a thing that it is - in a certain sense - more real, to man, than the kingdom of light and the kingdom of form.

One of the lessons that was given to us in the 1950's through the later teachings is to "By-Pass" the Astral Plane through the mediation of Archangel Michael.  God bless this wonderful friend and brother, this Blue Ray Powerful Prince of Archangels for all the work He does for humanity, hierarchy and for Our Father/Mother God.  He gives twenty two out of twenty-four hours a day to protecting, directing and defending mankind.  He's been my friend since I was a child.  I went to St. Michael's Elementary School, St. Michael's Church, married a Michael and tried to name each of my children Michael; but it was only later that I really became acquainted with this most loving and powerful Archangel.  He has saved my life twice that I'm aware of and I don't know how many times before that He was instrumental in protecting me.  But the reason I'm speaking about Him at this point in time is to explain how He has made a promise both to Jesus as well as other members of Hierarchy that he would deliver us through the Astral Plane every night in order to meet Hierarchy 


(1) Negative, unintelligent mediumship and psychism reduces its exponent to the level of an automaton; it is dangerous and inadvisable, because it deprives man of his free will and his positivity, and militates against his acting as a free, intelligent human being.  The man is not acting in these cases as a channel for his own soul; but is little better than an instinctual animal, if he is not literallly an empty shell, which an obsessing entity can occupy and use . . .
Here, the Master warns us of using psychic channeling; as many are doing at the present time.  Unless one is trained to channel from the Soul, passing through the Astral Plane, the person can endanger himself by leaving himself open for Astral Entities to enter and take over the channeling.  These entities do not leave once they attach to a person and would have to be cut loose and set free by a powerful high disciple who can actually see the entity or entities surrounding the person.  Again, He gives specific lessons on how to contact the Soul and in Lesson Six He actually gave us the path to contact the soul on a daily basis through the Meditation He gave to us - it not only contacts the Soul; but connects the Soul to the Inner Christ Flame located within the physical heart,  so that one is completely connected at all levels by the Light of the Soul. -mf

At the same time there are mediums of a very much higher order, whose lives are offered in service to advanced souls on the other side of the veil, and who give themselves so that their fellowmen may learn of them; thus, on both sides of the veil of separation, are souls aided and given opportunity to hear or serve.  But these too would profit by a more intelligent training, and by a more accurate understanding of the technique of their work and the organization of their bodies.  They would then be better channels and more dependable intermediaries . . .
There are mediums today like Tyler who visits the rich and the famous of Hollywood; but is able to act as mediator between those on the other side of the veil and their relatives who are here on Earth.  There are several like Tyler who dedicate their live to helping those on both sides of the veil to communicate - this also makes most unbelievers realize that there is life beyond the physical plane, and that their dear ones are constantly in tune with them just in a different plane.  What the Master is concerned mostly about here is that they are allowing their Solor Plexus Chakra, which is also a doorway  to be open, leaving them unprotected and a magnet for those Astral Entities who are always looking for a subject to attach like vampires they can drain the light out of the unprotected medium. - mf

The goal for the low-grade negative psychic should be the training of the mind, and the closing of the solar plexus until such time as he can function as a true mediator . . .His clairvoyant and clairaudient powers should gradually be perfected, and the right interpretation of what he sees and contacts on the plane of illusion, the astral plane, should be cultivated.
Again, there's a whole ritual that students go through especially if they are working through the Astral Plane in order to reach the Etheric Plane, and that is of course, surrounding oneself with the "white light" and asking Archangel Michael to place His Electronic Presence over the entire Four Lower Bodies while working in World Service, Deep Meditation, and especially when preparing to heal another person. Before going to sleep at night one should ask Archangel Michael to place His Electronic Presence over themselves and  their four lower bodies, so that they pass through the Astral Plane on their way to the temples and retreats they are going to while their physical body sleeps. And they should ask Michael to bring them back safely into their physical bodies in the morning. 

The Crossing of the Arms across the Solar Plexus is one way of closing the Chakra and of course asking your Higher Self to Seal the Solar Plexus while you are meditating, healing and doing World Service. Whenever, one is working on  the World and channeling the light into those areas that are in darkness, the Tube of Light must be placed around yourself as well as the Ovoid Radiant Blue Protective Light of Archangel Michael; because when you are standing in the Light and sending that light out into the world to erase all errors and break down all barriers; there is always an immediate attack from the Forces of Evil, who do not want us to disturb the Status Quo; but their day is done, there time is running out like the sand in the hour glass and they want to take as many souls with them as possible, therefore, be diligent in protecting your Four Lower Bodies whenever you are giving service. - mf

Thus, we shall gradually find emerging in the world a large body of trained psychics, whose powers are understood, and who function on the astral plane with as much intelligence as they function on the physical plane, and who are preparing themselves for the expression of the higher psychic powers - spiritual perception and telepathy.  These people will constitute eventually a body of linking souls, mediating between those who cannot see and hear on the astral plane because they are the prisoners of the physical body, and those who are equally the prisoners of the astral plane, lacking the physical response apparatus.

The great need, therefore, is not that we should cease to consult and train our psychic mediums, but that we should train them rightly, and guard them intelligently and so link, through their means, the two worlds of the physical and astral.
(2) The world today is entering a phase of extreme sensitivity.  Disciples must train themselves to help.  The shift of the consciousness of ordinary and mediocre individuals will be on the levels of conscious astralism and the veil between the seen and the unseen will rapidly disappear . . . I am not asking you to cultivate psychic powers, but I do ask you to hold yourselves in guarded readiness to see and hear on all levels of service, and to know what you see and hear, interpreting it correctly, unblinded by prejudice and fear.  The Path of Discipleship is not an easy one, but its compensations are adequate. Psychic sensitivity is involved in the understanding of this phase of discipleship.

As the race becomes clairvoyant, as it surely will in a great degree before the close of this rootrace, these gaseous devas will stand revealed, and men will realize that they are working with fiery lives, and that  they are themselves closely allied to these lives through the fires of their own bodies.  The clairvoyance which is in processs of developing in the rootrace, is entirely physical, and, under the law, its development is to be anticipated, for the Aryan  rootrace is that one wherein man - in this fourth round - comes to full self-consciousness.  This involves complete physical vision, and the use in prefection of the three physical plane senses of hearing, touch, and sight.  In the next root race astral clairvoyance will be prevalent, though not universal, and thus contact with the buddhic plane will be more easily achieved.


Higher clairaudience speaks directly from mind to mind. This is not exactly telepathy, but a form of direct hearing.  The teacher will speak to the disciple as person to person.  A conversation is therefore carried on entirely on mental levels, with the higher faculties as the focussing point.


(1) Spiritualism was the religion of old Atlantis, and the Seventh Ray dominated that ancient civilization for a very long period of time . . .
During the time of Atlantis, civilization had reached a very high level of Spirituality, citizens were able to produce objects, food and etc. from fohot, or from the "field" in Physics.  The only person I know of who has recently passed from this Earth is Sai Baba of India who could produce jewels, gold and a vibrant dust that could heal.  When the Master speaks of the Seventh Ray, He refers  to the White Magician, like Master St. Germain, the Seventh Angel, who could be in several places at once could write and create music with both hands, could remove flaws from jewels and was know as the "Wonderman of Europe".  He was in His ascended state while using a physical body at that time, while at the same time trying  to unite Europe to a United States.  He was seen in Europe from the 17th to the 19th Century, appearing especially at Rosicrucian Conclaves

Rosicrucianism is a philosophical secret society, said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by Christian Rosenkreuz. It holds a doctrine or theology ...
St. Germain was Christian Rosenkeuz, and was reported being seen at the appointment of 
Jackie Kennedy's sister when she entered the Rosicrucian society.
The Aquarian Age signals that we are now once again riding into  the Seventh Ray - as Brotherhood and Global Unity will be dawning while the old Piscean Dictatorships and the Nationalistic form of separateness not only Globally but Nationally and 

within each country - this is the serpent raising its 

head for the last time before being swept  out by the 

incoming light, frequency, radiation and vibrations of 

the Aquarian Age -mf

It is thought that the correct development of spiritualism along psychological lines and the withdrawal of its emphasis upon, phenomena - which is its outstanding characteristic and emphasis today - that the true nature of death and of the hereafter will be revealed . . .
At the end of the Eighteenth Century and for several years at the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, Spiritualism was the "new religion"  Theosophy and Psychical Research were on everyone's agenda.  Most people were more interested in the phenomena presented rather than the deeper studies involved.   As I am a Theosophist and have studied for over 40 years, all of these Philosophic Societies came about as we entered the Aquarian Age and many like myself were on a quest to find answers that were not happening in our religions. The Two Mahatmas who started Theosophy through Telepathic Communication with Madame Helena Blatvasky were Master El Morya, her Teacher and Master Kuthumi.

Spiritualism in its lowest and material aspect, is a low grade expression of the Seventh Ray, and is - for the masses - definitely a line of least resistance, and, therefore, of no great spiritual importance to their evolutionary development.  The masses of the people are today Atlantean in their consciousness, and are only slowly emerging into the Aryan point of view.  This must change, and the mind activity be rapidly enhanced, or else true spiritualism will be unable to express itself and - through the present spiritualistic movement - there can be let loose upon the world, forces and entities of a most undesirable character.  The negativity of the bulk of the mediums, throws the door wide open to very definite dangers.  Fortunately, there is a movement within spiritualistic circles to right  this obvious danger and to shift the present emphasis upon phenomena, into the world of true values and right understanding . . .  
The Isis Unveiled Vols I & II as well as The Secret Doctrine,
Vols. I & II, were also part of Djwal Khwal's Initiation as He dictated much of these Tomes for His Teacher the Mahatma Kuthumi.  The next lessons I will be teaching is the  Occult Meditations by Master D. K. wherein we can expand the mind and the consciousness to the higher mental planes by concentration and consecration of our time in an effort to catch up with the Aryan minds that are so far advanced in consciousness. - mf
If the societies and organizations, connected with the spiritualisstic movement and the psychical research groups, would seek for and find the natural sensitives -  and not the trance mediums - and those who are naturally clariaudient and clairvoyant, and would study their disclosures, their words, their reactions, and their modes of working, they would discover much about some of the natural and normal powers of man - powers which have been in abeyance during the period wherein mind development has been the objective, and which humanity shares with two great groups of lives - the member of the Hierarchy, and the animal kingdom. PONDER ON THIS.  If, therefore, these societies would concentrate on the intelligent and mental psychics, and rule out all trance conditions, it would not be long before revelation would come.  The trance condition is undesireable, separates the medium from his soul and definitely relegates him to the realm of the negative, of the uncontrolled and of material forces. 
Both  the Russians and the United States along with the United Kingdom have been working along these lines for the past fifty years. Psychical Research started in England much earlier; and has been studying with natural clairvoyants and clairaudients for a much longer period of time - this grew out of the Theosophical Society around the turn of the century and has continued with its research ever since.
The Russians are very covert in their research but made giant steps in mind reading, mind control especially as part of their espionage research.  Here in Menlo Park, SRI is our research center and has been working along the same lines as the English and Russian counterparts.  At least, one of the researchers that I met back in the eighties and nineties was a Buddhist, and approached the research along the lines of the Theosophical Society.  In fact, when I visited him, he threw down my Teacher's picture and said:  "This being is not the only one working with mankind - in fact, there are several schools  throughout the world all backed by Hierarchy.  Of course, I was relieved to know that this organization was backed by Hierarchy because, of course, they will proceed along the lines that Djwal Khwal had set as the correct course of study. (of course that was the nineties, and I have no idea what's happening as far as the research is concerned today). - mf

(2) The spiritualists will make a discovery whereby the means of contact with those who function out of the physical body will be greatly facilitated, and a group of mediums will begin to act as intermediaries for a number of scientists on the inner side of life and those who are still in physical bodies.  Through the activity of the real esoteric schools, a technique of training will be instituted which will develop the new powers that will substantiate the old truth, and turn men's beliefs into certainties.  Through the stimulating and occultly scientific work of the department of religions, men will come to new knowledge and awareness, and will arrive at an uplift that will bring mankind to the Mount or Transfiguration.  Through the work of the department of government, men will come to an understanding of those ideas which are needed to carry the nations the next step forward to mutual help.
By God's grace, we can certainly hope that all of the above discoveries and activities are already in the works and that both the field of science and government as well as religion all the above will be a reality and we can possibly see our way towards Peace on Earth and Goodwill to all mankind.  mf
