Concourse Of The
Ritual of the Cathedral portal is the quintessential ritual! This is
the fifth ritual, in the element of Aether. The four rituals
preceding this one invoked the four elements and constituents of
Matter: Fire, Water, Air and Earth.
In Ritual of the Stonehenge
Portal we performed Fire Ritual to Invoke the Shield Guides.
Ritual of the Rock Eagle Portals we performed Fire Water Ritual to
Call Forth the Wings of Love.
In Ritual of the Pyramid Portals we
performed Earth Ritual to Empower the Spirit-Soul.
In Ritual of the
Sarcophagus Portal we performed Air Ritual for Spirit-Soul to Walk
Thus, we invoked the four elements and also the energies of
the ancient worlds:
the Celts of Great Britain
the Mound Builder
Indians of North America
the Aztecs and the Mayas of
These are powerful energies we called upon, for these are the
energies that built legendary civilizations on this planet, and in
so doing preserved and advanced the Ancient Knowledge.
We also have
asked many great spiritual beings, Energy-Intelligences, Planetary
Spirits and Occult Forces of the universe to assist us in our
alchemical Great Work of spiritual evolution and planetary
In these rituals we boldly called for many individuals,
many collective consciousnesses and the God-power of the universe to
shed Light and Love on us while we work on behalf of universal
consciousness. These great and powerful Beings of Light responded to
our collective call and are joining with us to bring us and our
planet to a whole new level of consciousness.
What is the significance of the four elements? In classical
astrology the appearance and construction of each created thing is
determined by a specific combination of the concourse of the forces
of the four elements. When the elements of Fire, Water, Air and
Earth are in contact they set up a motion which produces an action.
The form the action takes is dependent upon the concourse of the
forces brought together.
The first concourse of the forces of Fire
and Air produced heaven and earth.
The second concourse of the
forces of Air and Water created a strong wind born from water, which
created all vegetation.
From the third concourse of the forces of
Air and Fire, generation began.
The fourth concourse of the forces
of Water and Fire entered into contact with Earth and this resulted
in the creation of humanity.
We learn by this allegorical mythology that concourse of the forces
is a powerful formula for creation in the universe.
In this Aether
ritual we are bringing together the four elements and also the
powerful Beings of Light and their energies to direct the four
elements into the concourse of the forces for the benefit of our
planet, our group consciousness and our individual selves. Because
we are motiveless, desiring to work for the greater good within the
Light of Divine Love, these great powers are responding.
With this Aether ritual we will activate the great
celestial Cross of Light in
the vault of the Northern Hemisphere. This cross will light for
eternity this time on this planet when Spirit and Matter came
together for the love and benefit of all. Plato said the power which
comes next to the highest God is marked with a Cross of Light upon
the universe, and we will draw upon the power of our Cross of Light
for guidance and energy as we continue our Work on the physical
The fusion - the alchemy - of Spirit and Matter expressed by the
Cross of Light also is powerfully expressed by the total solar
eclipse during the night of the ritual, or Sunday, March 9, in
Siberia. Lasting longer than 2 minutes, the solar eclipse will allow
for an easy view of
comet Hale-Bopp if you are in eastern Asia. The
visibility of a comet during a total solar eclipse is quite a rare
event and has only happened four times in the last century or so.
Throughout the ages, the alchemical union of the sun and moon is the
most enduring symbol in alchemy. When Forces of Light (the Sun) and
Forces of Dark Light (the Moon) come together on March 9, the
energies of union will be facilitated by Chartres Cathedral near

By the Aether ritual, its natural power amplified by the solar
eclipse, we will fulfill several Love goals, including: bringing
into geometrical alignment the energy on this planet by bringing
through the portal of Chartres the angels of geometry and the
geometry monks; linking with the healing spiritual vibrations of the
Divine Mother, Our Lady of Chartres; and activating for ourselves
the energy power of the mythological wealth and legendary treasures
of the planet and the vast wealth of the Knights Templar, who built Chartres and many healing hospices all over France.
We will create
for ourselves the Ring of the Niebelung, the golden ring symbolizing
the power of Spirit with the wealth of the planet. With both Spirit
and material resources accessible to us, we can continue our
spiritual work and go forth into the world as spiritual knights
under the banner of Health, Wealth and Love!

When you do the ritual this time, think about inviting someone to
Sometimes, group consciousness (two is a group) can
manifest an experience that is more palpable than what individual
consciousness provides. Linda Libra's Merkaba meditation group
produces impressive group ritual results.
Here is their Ritual of
the Sarcophagus Portal:
Our group usually sits around a large table with the various
accouterments for the ritual in front of us. For this one, however,
it seemed appropriate to set up an altar in the pathway of the
room's portal without table. A pathway of crystals (most of these
were milky) and candles led from the portal entry, and the altar
itself had the large Merkaba in the center surrounded by a circle of
crystal laser wands and other crystals on top of a like number of
major arcana cards, intuitively drawn.
Several other appropriately
placed crystals were also around the setup. Each of the participants
intuitively drew a power deck card and an angel oracle card to be
read at the end of the process for further guidance. Our intention
and focus was to be in a place of love for ourselves and the
Universe so as to be clearer channels for love for the earth and all lifeforms. We sang songs and performed chants especially to assist
in the raising of the vibration. The Heartbeat Drumming was also
performed to attune to Mother Earth's vibration.
A 21 breath Merkaba meditation was accomplished with a call
afterward for all to join in a network of light with all others who
were also engaged in the meditative activity of the day (Gaiamind,
World Peace, and yours), linking the cosmic Christ grid. A silent
meditation allowed each to receive his/her own insight. The very
first energy sensed by all present was that of the Divine Mother,
followed by a stream of others including the sense of Archangel
Michael and Gabriel (the first time I had ever seen Gabriel), Shiva,
Jesus, and a number of others (ours is an eclectic group).
energy flowed around the room thru the portal in such waves that it
was easily "seen" and sensed: we were sitting in a semicircle in
front of the altar and around the area. In answer to my request, a
"raft" of Mayans entered the room, resplendent to say the least.
Each of the Mayan etherics appeared to blend with one of the
participants in the meditation. We were in the silence of that
energy for some time, and all felt they had received healing,
inspiration, and personal guidance, as well as being a part of a
greater healing, ascending effort. The general consensus was this

Group Consciousness is a powerful dynamic and a blessed event. What
an experience it is when someone sitting beside you describes to you
what you are seeing through inner vision! Others are seeing it along
with you because it is a group consciousness inner vision. In the
group ritual I led this February in Atlanta, we saw with 3rd eye a
flaming red rosebud. This is Dante Alighieri's "Rose of the Blessed."
In Dante's structure of the universe, the
Rose of the Blessed is
situated beyond the planetary spheres and signifies ascension into a

With only one week until the ritual, the energy is really beginning
This is the quintessential ritual, so it is important to
have a little more preparation time than usual. For this reason I
have posted all the ritual articles, as well as the ritual, on the
web site at:
You may not hear from me again by email before the ritual, because I
am beginning my meditation now.
In the Aether ritual you will see references to a gold ring and a
silver cape. This is part of an initiation I recently experienced in
which I was empowered by Spirit to marry the wealth of the planet to
the spiritual aspirations of all involved in this ritual. This
light-body initiation and Divine Marriage was performed on the stone
steps of Chartres Cathedral and officiated by the Celestial Orders
of the Prophets of the Golden Masons. This is the name of the Order
of the angels of sacred geometry and the geometry monks who are
coming through the portal at Chartres.
This is an angelic order
devoted to the Divine Mother and whose initiates are:
Templar (warrior monks)
the Benedictine monks (Alchemy monks)
the Palamun monks (Gnostic monks)
In the initiation, a man wearing a white ritual gown and a red cloth
belt came forward accompanied by a Shield Guide.
The man carried
before him a small white pillow upon which rested a beautiful
wedding ring of gold light. When the ring bearer presented me with
the gold ring, it floated up from the pillow and turned slowly in a
circle, growing bigger and bigger, then small again.
A thin, wide
sheet of glittering silver etched with symbols materialized and
wrapped itself around my shoulders, form-fitting itself to me to
become a silver cape. I felt intense excitement and breathlessness
(even as I write this), and gasping a little (solar plexus chakra
activity) I was awakened by my guides to take a deep breath.

Energy, The Piscean Influence And Pilgrims With Backpacks
As a frequent skywalker I often encounter energy patterns and life
forms different from my own.
Have you ever dreamed that you are
going in fast reverse and can't stop? That is the experience of
connecting with retrograde energy. The energy is quite powerful and
allows for the release of less-than-eternal emotions, especially
fear, which weigh us down and hold us in our little selves while our
larger selves patiently await. We are experiencing at this time
strong retrograde energy, expressed by the apparent reverse motion
of Mars and Pluto.
This energy has lessons to teach if we can find the classroom! After
skywalking through the portal to Chartres a few nights ago, I
encountered inside the cathedral the retrograde, spiral energy
housed by the sacred geometry of the architecture. I passed through
the portal and was moving inside the cathedral in comfort when
suddenly I went straight backwards at about 30 miles per hour, then
full forward, then took a sharp 90 degree right turn and then,
falling fearlessly to the left, I tumbled down from the Gothic
arches like falling from the tower on The Tower card in tarot.
fell I had a series of thoughts and images that seemed unrelated to
the experience of the moment.
Swept along in this retrograde energy vortex I fell into the crypt
and into the fishy, Piscean water of the Well of the Strong. Under
the Piscean energy influence of fishes swimming in opposite
directions, I splashed around and experienced difficulty of movement
as I struggled to right myself and reassert my own energy pattern. I
avoided "drowning" only by finding the strength to shed a layer of
self like removing a heavy overcoat. The coat was woven of fear, and
after casting it aside I floated free.
This experience gave me considerable insights into ascension. The
fish of Pisces are tied together and want to hold onto the old and
the known, being fearful of loss and the unknown. But by releasing
these fears we can swim free to the next level. The Pisces sign
represents the attainment of universal consciousness at the end of a
cycle, and this attainment involves letting go of the known in favor
of the unknown.
Connecting with retrograde energy also taught me a
fascinating lesson about universal consciousness and the Eternal
Now. Although it seemed to me I traveled backwards at a speed of 30
miles per hour, in fact I traveled so fast in reverse that I went
into the future and experienced the events that happened the
following day as thoughts and images as I fell into the crypt.
Through the portal I went back to the future!
The energy of the Chartres ritual is profound and paradoxical -- it
is both volatile and peaceful. And I wonder if you have seen any etheric young "pilgrims" lately? Some of them are wearing backpacks!
They have come here to do the ritual with us.
The following astrological information is the work of Melissa
Stratton. Thanks, Melissa!
At the end of the article is a web link
to a Chartres page with several beautiful photographs of the
Cathedral, including the stained-glass Pisces window in Chartres.
Melissa's astrology information for Ritual of the Cathedral Portal:
Right away what stands out is that 8 planets along with 3 asteroids
(11 planetary bodies!) are lined up entirely within the 2nd and 3rd
houses. The 2nd house, of connection with the material plane, is
ruled by Capricorn with asteroid Pallas Athena (the wise warrior -
Knights Templar??) at the cusp and Neptune in Capricorn nearby, and
includes the important conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter in
Aquarius. The asteroids Ceres (in Aquarius) and Vesta (in Pisces)
are also in the 2nd house.
The conjunction of Uranus/Jupiter in
Aquarius can indicate expanded opportunities when we begin to trust
advanced concepts. In the 2nd house, this conjunction along with the
other 4 planets/asteroids points to an emphasis on creating a new
material foundation based on expanded concepts.
The Pisces-ruled 3rd house contains a line-up of 4 planets - Venus,
Mercury, Sun and Moon (tightly conjuncted in the eclipse) all in
Pisces, along with Saturn in Aries. The 3rd house of lower mind and
communication ruled by Pisces with 5 planets inside can indicate an
intuitive opening up of the "lower" mind to receive the Picean ideal
of unconditional love - very indicative of the Divine Mother
influence, I'd say!
Saturn in Aries is a nice addition, since it
tends to anchor new experiences in the mental realm - meaning, our
conscious minds can more readily accept/believe these experiences.
Retrograde Mars/North Node conjunction in Virgo is in the 9th house
of higher mind, indicating that the experience of the
lower/conscious mind can be channeled through the higher mind. In
fact, this shows that the higher mind is ready and willing to handle
the details, organize and help integrate the experience.
The transformational energy of Chiron in Scorpio is located in the
10th house. It's interesting that the Atlanta (East Coast) chart has
Scorpio/Chiron in the ego arena, while the major portal of Chartres
has it in the house of worldly recognition. It's as if it is "time"
for this ancient portal to be once again utilized "out in the
world", but we aren't meant to use this for our own
Retrograde Pluto in Sagittarius is located in the 12th house, which
has Scorpio at the cusp. This adds another message about
transformation - Pluto is the planet of transformation in the 12th
house ruled by Scorpio, the sign of transformation.
Pluto/Sagittarius in the 12th house of connection with other
realities, can indicate that it is time to let goof our fears around
reaching out toward higher planes of reality.
This process can help
us reconcile the "dreamtime" with who we project ourselves to be -
since in the chart Sagittarius begins in the 12th house, but spills
out into the 1st house of persona and rules the ascendant.
The Vertex is in Cancer in the 8th house (another indicator of
transformation, since the 8th house is the house of transformation)
and is opposite Neptune/Capricorn in the 2nd house. This can be
phrased as, "Destiny knocks at the door of transformation, waiting
for us to dissolve our former concepts around the material plane and
enter a new dimension."
The asteroid Juno is in Taurus in the 5th house of creativity
indicating the willingness to commit to grounding creative
And finally, one fascinating note is that the comet Hale Bopp
(according to the ephemeris provided by Astrolabe) will be traveling
through Pisces very close to the Sun/Moon eclipse at the time of the
ritual! So it will be highLIGHTing the Pisces sector of the chart -
the Divine Mother Love.
Our Lady of Chartres Cathedral, dedicated to the Divine Mother and
built 1128-1228 CE above an ancient geophysical portal, is a
light-matrix in stone. Demonstrating this is a comparison of the
cathedral ground plan to the World Soul, a light-matrix design based
upon the Kabala Tree of Life.
The World Soul light-matrix
demonstrates the geometrical properties of light which are built
into the cathedral as sacred geometry.
Chartres is designed
according to proportions which obey the law of the Golden Mean,
In Chartres, distances between pillars and the lengths
of the nave, transepts, and the choir are all multiples of the
Golden Mean. The ribs supporting the vaults of the quadrangular
units of which the cathedral is composed are the shape of the golden
rectangle. The overall ground plan design of Chartres is a Latin
Cross, symbolizing Light of the Cross, where Spirit and Matter come
The esoteric concept of
sacred geometry as being based upon the
geometrical properties of light is demonstrated by placing the
ground plan of Chartres beside the light-matrix. Spheres S1, S2 and
S3 are connected by two diagonal paths of light, D1 and D2, and one
horizontal path of light, H1, creating the top up-pointed acute
triangle of the light-matrix.
In the cathedral, these are the three
great stained-glass windows through which streams bright sunlight,
the material world counterpart of the Boundless Light/Great Creator.
The brilliant light illuminates the interior of the cathedral,
enlightening Sacred Center, S4 on the light-matrix.
S2, S3 and S4,
connected by H1, D7 and D8, form an down-pointed acute triangle, the
mirror image of the first up-pointed triangle.
The corners of North and
South Transepts of the cathedral are S6 and S9 on the left, and S5
and S8 on the right. In the center of the transepts is occulted S7.
The spheres S4, S5, and S6, connected by H2, D9 and D10, form a
second up-pointed acute triangle.
S5, S6 and S7, connected by H2,
D13 and D14, form its mirror image, a down-pointed acute triangle.
The spheres S7, S8 and S9, connected by H3, D15 and D16, form the
3rd up-pointed acute triangle.
Below occulted S7 is Vortex, S10,
defined as "Portal" in Kabalism.
S8, S9 and S10, connected by H3,
D21 and D22, form a third down-pointed acute triangle.
is Great West Door, S13, defined as "Communion" in Kabalism.
S11 and S12, connected by H4, D23 and D24, form a 4th up-pointed
S11, S12 and S13, connected by H4, D29 and D30 form
a 4th down-pointed acute triangle.
This system of repeating mirror image triangles is a graphic
representation of the ancient and venerable philosophy of
Emanationism, the secret religious philosophy of the Jewish rabbis
and many others before and after them.
The World Soul glyph
describes a universe (and a cathedral) based upon rational order and
comprehensible intellectual structure. It is derived, in part, from
Platonism, in which the original template, or tri-fold
god-energy/light, is duplicated endlessly throughout the universe in
various degrees of light-density and power.
The philosophy is
enduring throughout the ages but not widely popular, because the
idea of God as the ultimate matrixed, metaphysical
Energy-Intelligence-Creator expressed in terms of light is
challenging to conceptualize, being such a long way from the popular
notion of God as a gaseous vertebrate.
The light-matrix, like the Kabala Tree of Life, is composed of three
Left pillar is comprised of spheres S3, S6, S9 and
S12, connected by vertical paths of light numbered V3, V6, and V9.
In Kabalism the left pillar is designated negative.
Right pillar is
comprised of S2, S5, S8 and S11 connected by V2, V5 and V8. Right
pillar is designated positive.
Middle pillar is comprised of S1, S4,
S7, S10 and S13. Middle pillar is neutral.
Diagonal paths of light
connect all these spheres together and form acute triangles of
The spheres on the outer pillars are connected by
horizontal paths of attraction-repulsion H1, H2, H3 and H4. Three
rectangles are formed by the horizontal paths of light connecting
with the vertical paths of light at the spheres on the outer
pillars. The rectangles are halved by the middle pillar, creating
six cubes, three on the right of the middle pillar and three on the
left. The light-matrix is a representative section of a continuum,
the triangles repeating ad infinitum.
At the top of the left and negative pillar is Sphere 3, S3, known in
Kabalism as "Form" and named Binah, the Black Mother. In Chartres
this Kabalistic pillar is the Black Madonna, called Our Lady of the
Pillar. (image copyright Rhey Cedron) She is the womb
portal/feminine energy through which all of the material world is
born as her Divine Child. The three pillars, depicting the ancient
Three Primordial Principles of creation, is found in art as early as
The three pillars shows the polarities at work in
creating the spiral energy of the vortex, a representation of which
is found carved on the floor of Chartres. When studied from a
different angle, both the linear ground plan of Chartres and the
linear appearance of the light-matrix can be seen as concentric
circles of the vortex.
Spiral energy, Divine Mother energy, is the
most powerful energy/light configuration in the universe.
Traditionally, when the pilgrims entered the cathedral through Great
West Door they proceeded to Vortex. At the center of Vortex used to
be the combat of Theseus and the Minotaur, erased over time by the
feet of pilgrims. From the outer circle of Vortex the pilgrims
performed a ritual of the portal in which they spun around and
around ever inward, activating and integrating the spiral
energy/light, until they reached the center of the vortex.
this ritual, they proceeded into the cathedral to await their turn
to enter the crypt of the cathedral, where another ritual was
performed to invoke the healing powers of the Divine Mother. Inside
the cathedral, the metaphysical portal/shamanic tunnel is erected in
the divine proportions of the sacred geometry that comprise its
arched architecture. And there, at the end of the great arched
tunnel, is the huge Rose window, the representation of Ain Soph, the
131 feet below the pinnacle of the Gothic arch and 131 feet over the
ancient geophysical portal floats Sacred Center, S4 on the
light-matrix. Beneath Sacred Center, in the crypt of the cathedral,
is a convergence point of telluric (earth) energy, where is located
a dolmen and a well. The dolmen, a megalithic tomb of two standing
stones supporting a large, flat boulder, was built about the time of
Located at that place is a well, called "the Well of the
Strong." The dolmen and the well were once buried within a mound,
creating a portal tall enough to walk through. Chartres is the 6th
church built over the dolmen and the well, the other five having
been destroyed by fire.
Until the 18th century, every pilgrim took part in a second ritual
of the portal involving descent to the dolmen, where they were
blessed with the water from the well. In the 3rd century CE,
Christians named this underground sanctuary "Druid's Grotto" because
mysterious rituals were held here long ago, and they attributed the
rituals to the Druids and their college, or mystery school.
Residing in the crypt is the statue of The Virgin of the Crypt -
Lady of Chartres. Throughout history, sick people were nursed in the
crypt, usually for a period of 9 days. Great crowds were drawn to
the sanctuary, and pilgrims slept in the cathedral while waiting
their turn to the crypt. This accounts for the slope of the nave
paving allowing a thorough washing, and panels of the stained-glass
windows could be taken out to air the building.
Many miracles took
place in the crypt and are recorded in chronicles of the cathedral
and attributed to The Virgin of the Crypt. The origin and heart of
Chartres is the crypt, the womb portal of Our Lady and her healing
"Traveling through the universe, spiraling through
the universe is Universal Mother energy."
(Words of the Matawil)
Chartres Cathedral was built on the principles of
especially to channel and amplify the spiritual vibrations of this
nurturing, healing God energy.
Templar And The Ark Of The Covenant
Shrouded in mystery is the financing and building of Chartres,
involving the Knights Templar, the last order of the Grail Knights.
The mystery involves how the Templars found the knowledge as early
as the 12th century CE to build such a magnificent cathedral. The
answer to this mystery lies in the quest the Knights undertook in
traveling to Jerusalem. They hoped to gain secret knowledge believed
to be held there in the Ark of the Covenant, which was rumored to be
buried under Solomon's Temple.
Because their first quarters in
Jerusalem adjoined a building known at the time as Solomon's Temple,
the Knights became known as the Poor Knights of Christ and of the
Temple of Solomon, or Knights Templar.
The Ark of the Covenant was a wooden chest (arca) in which the Jews
kept the tablets of the Law. In Jewish synagogues and temples an ark
is a cabinet for housing holy scrolls. The Ark mosaic in Israel at
the Beth Alpha Synagogue, built during the Greco-Roman period,
portrays the Ark of the Covenant designed like the light-matrix in
which are contained the Holy Scrolls of the Law. The Ark is
comprised of three pillars, negative on the left, positive on the
right and neutral in the middle. To the right and left of the middle
pillar are 4 cubes stacked vertically with designs like light codes.
These are the drawers
which contain the Holy Scrolls, 4 on the right and 4 on the left.
The top of this Ark finishes in an acute triangle, pointed like a
cathedral spire. Hanging from the center of the spire is a lantern.
To the right and the left of this Ark are Menorah (candelabras).
Lions of Judah eat of the fruit of this Kabala (hidden) Tree of
life, astrological symbols can be seen, and to the far right a
curtain has been pulled aside (a veil is rent) by a crab so we may
have a rare view of this sacred, celestial object of Light.
What is the Law contained by the Holy Scrolls? The Law contained
within the Ark of the Covenant is the secret knowledge the Knights
Templar sought at Solomon's Temple. It is the knowledge with which
they build Chartres Cathedral.
I believe this knowledge is the Law
of Polarity, the first principle of creation; the plain of truth;
the hearth of the universe, easily seen demonstrated in a section of
a Gothic arch. Since ancient times (6,000 BCE) polarity has been
studied as the three pillars of the Three Primordial Principles,
defined as positive, negative and neutral.
The right positive
pillar is Jachin, the name of the right pillar of Solomon's Temple.
The left negative pillar is Boaz, the left pillar of Solomon's
The right pillar is defined,
as positive in Hermeticism
Male in Kabalism
as Light in Gnosticism
as Ohrmuzd or Endless
Light in Zoroastrianism
as Light in Greek philosophy
of Greatness dwelling in the Light in Manichaeism
The left pillar
as negative in Hermeticism
Female in Kabalism
Ahriman or Endless Darkness in Zoroastrianism
in Greek philosophy
King of Darkness in Manichaeism
With the addition of the third principle, the central and neutral
pillar, comes the concept of transcendence of polarity.
third principle polarity becomes dimensional and gains a plane
surface (that which has length and breadth). The plane surface,
formed by the triangle, was called the "plain of truth" by the
Pythagoreans of ancient Greece because it is the Three Primordial
Principles expressed in geometry as a triangle. According to the
Pythagoreans, the plain of truth is the "hearth of the universe."
The central pillar is,
neutral in Kabalism
Androgynous in Alchem
Hermaphroditic in Hinduism
Intermediate Spirit in Gnosticism
Void-Negative Space in Zoroastrianism
Air-Fate in Greek philosophy
Shadow between like a Wedge in Manichaeism
With their knowledge of sacred geometry based upon the geometry of
light, most likely gained from their association with Jewish Rabbis
and mystics who studied Kabala, the Knights Templar returned to
France in 1128, after 10 years of study in Jerusalem, and began
construction of Chartres, a small model of the universe and the
archetypal Gothic cathedral and light-matrix in stone.
While the Templars were in Jerusalem defending Christians against
the "infidel" (Muslims) they regularly transmitted money and
supplies from Europe to Palestine, and they developed an efficient
banking system on which the rulers and nobility of Europe came to
rely. The knights gradually became bankers for a large part of
Europe and amassed great wealth.
They used this money to establish
the first large, community service organization and held communal
prayers and rituals in hospices they founded all over France. Giving
up all personal property and wealth, they took vows of chastity,
obedience and poverty, and became warrior-monks. They upheld their
vows but became immensely wealthy anyway because of estate
donations, some of which the Roman Catholic Church and the King of
France would likely have received.
About 200 years after the construction of Chartres, the Catholic
church assisted King Philip the Fair of France in condemning the
enormously wealthy Knights as heretics. 64 Templars were burned at
the stake and their wealth seized by the King and by the church.
When the Templars died, they refused to give out any of their secret
knowledge, even about Baphomet whom they were accused of
worshipping, whom they admitted worshipping, and whom they were
burned for worshipping.
The mystery of Baphomet was solved recently
when it was discovered that the Knights knew the Atbash Cipher, a
system of cryptography involving the written Hebrew language.
Evidence exists indicating Jesus was familiar with the Atbash
Cipher, found in a number of Dead Sea Scrolls.
In the Atbash Cipher,
Baphomet decodes itself perfectly into "Sophia," Greek for
The Knights Templar were burned as heretics for worshipping Wisdom.
orthodox religion was defective in the wisdom component, any
modality which contained it was, ipso facto, heresy."
Lang, "Introduction," Le Mystere des Cathedrales
But Sophia is much more
than Greek for Wisdom. Sophia is the Queen of Heaven, the Divine
Mother, The Virgin of Light, Our Lady of Chartres Cathedral - a Lady
worth dying for.
When in the presence of the Divine Mother called Sophia, the early
Gnostics of the 1st-4th centuries CE wondered why they were so
fortunate to be near her.
They held a dim view of physical life,
calling it a prison from which escape was made possible only by
death. Therefore, if a divinity such as Sophia could be among us,
then they reasoned it must be because she was a "fallen" divinity.
So they told a mythological story about the fall of Sophia, and this
explains her nearness to earth and her desire and willingness to
Sophia, meaning Wisdom, in her exalted state is the Virgin of Light.
She is like the Persian divinity Anahita, mistress of the waters
that flow from a heavenly source in the region of the stars. The sad
story of the fall of the Virgin of Light from her exalted position
in the celestial realms above is mirrored in the events of humanity
This story reveals the strong negative thoughts of the
ancient Gnostics regarding life on this planet and their desire for
escape or rescue. Conversely, the Knights Templar worshipped Sophia
and built a cathedral to her. Her merciful, healing energy inspired
them to build hospices all over Europe to care for the poor and
In the Gnostic account of Sophia, she is the Virgin of Light who
judges souls worthy to be passed through the portals to the Treasury
of Light. The Virgin of Light weighs the merits of the souls and
dispenses justice according to the souls' spiritual accomplishments
while physical. This is like the Egyptian god Thoth, who weighs the
soul against the weight of a feather. When the Virgin finds the
souls wanting in spiritual attainment, she sends them into the
rotation of the spheres or down through the body of
constellation Draco, whose tail descends into

If the souls are worthy, they receive from the Virgin the seals,
mysteries and baptisms necessary for their journey into the upper
realms. The Virgin of Light passes those perfect souls who are to
ascend to the upper realms to the Treasury of Light. Judging them
worthy, she releases them from the birth-rebirth cycle, the dance of
death, by sealing them against the powers of the spheres (planets).
Joyfully, the souls ascend to the heavenly realms.
The Virgin of Light becomes filled with a longing to reunite herself
with the Treasury of Light and the supernal entities of the higher
celestial realms. She envies those souls whom she sends upwards to
merge with the Light. Her strong emotions of envy and desire weigh
her down, just as they weigh us down. She falls from her exalted
position as the portal to the upper realms down into the lower
heavens to dwell in the 8th sphere.
When she falls she becomes
Sophia, the "Portal of Life," the door of birth into the physical
world. She wears a crown of 12 stars and these symbolize the
universe she fashions with her great powers. All the material world
is born through her. She is the Divine Mother, the Matawil, Our Lady
of Chartres, the Queen of Heaven. Her throne is the universe. She
sits on the Holy Scrolls of the Law.
How does the Divine Mother look? In some accounts of her, she is
pink and gold spiral energy.
Historically, she is painted as human.
In one representation of her in Chartres she is the Blue Virgin at Chartres.
For Ritual Of The Portal
I hope we can all start on time and do the ritual together.
perform this ritual when you can.
On the same day or the 7th or the
9th would be great. About 400 of us will be participating all over
the planet, some actively and others in mind and idea. In this
ritual we will call upon the Divine Mother to create with us the
Cross of Light in the vault of the Northern Hemisphere, to bring
into Chartres Cathedral the Celestial Orders of the Prophets of the
Golden Masons, and to bestow the golden ring and silver cape
symbolizing the power of Spirit with the wealth of the planet.
Set up your portal anyway you like, as a circle, as an altar, as a
specific design. I plan to construct mine as a circle of milky
quartz with a cross in the center. To create Concourse of the Forces
I will be using candles for Fire and Air, and bowls of Water and
bowls of Earth. These will be used during a certain part of the
ritual. Using Tarot of the Spirit tarot cards I will make the Cross
of Light in the shape of the Latin Cross (high horizontal bar).
anything magical you like to design this cross, runes, quartz,
whatever you have that is special for you. Place a candle at the
four corners of the Cross of Light. In the north position of the
cross place an extra candle, so that five candles will be used.
Inside the circle and around the cross I will be using all my
crystals as well as sacred objects.
We will be using Divine Mother portal disk (above) and/or Shri
Yantra portal disk. Use the one you resonate with or use both.
Yoga is the path of union with God thorough geometric visualization.
A yantra is a geometric design. They are highly efficient tools for
contemplation, concentration, and meditation. This type of yoga
might also be called Mandala Yoga. The Buddhist are masters of this
type of yoga as can be seen in their mandalas, icons, tankas, and
sand paintings. The American Indians used this type of yoga, also.
The Kabbalistic Tree of Life might be put in this category as well.
By tuning into the different aspects of a yantra you can tap into
certain deities or creative force centers in the universe.
The yantra is like a microcosmic picture of the macrocosm. It is a
focusing point and an outer and inner doorway. The yantra are often
focused on a specific deity. They can be drawn on paper, wood,
metal, or on the Earth itself or they can be three-dimensional. The
yantra provides a focal point that is a window into the absolute.
The idea is to make the yantra so real, inwardly and outwardly, that
it becomes alive. In that way it absorbs the practitioner's complete
attention, and [s/he] can no longer tell if the yantra is within
[him/herself] or if [s/he] is within the yantra. The most celebrated
yantra in India is the Sri Yantra, or Auspicious Wheel.
It is a
symbol of the entire cosmos that serves to remind the practitioner
of the non-difference between subject and object."
Shri Yantra helps us transcend the I/Thou archetype of our bipolar
world and join with the Divine Mother.

reverence. We also did some yoga body stretching together!
