Hall of Wisdom
The Path of Union
Portals of Consciousness
The Planet symbolic for the Hall of Wisdom is Uranus since it is the planet of destiny with insight into Kosmic Law in humanities relationship with the Solar system. Its energy is the higher octave of Mercuric or mental energy that represents the intuition, which comes as an instantaneous flash of knowingness-the intelligence of wisdom contained in the whole through the blending of the heart and mind via intuition, in the proper distribution of energy and eventual soul mastery.
The Path of Wisdom is education, elucidation, peaceful engagement & higher states of consciousness.
“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never, and what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!” ~Soren Kierkegaard
All women are beautiful, there is no woman that is not, whether she argues with her mirror image is irrelevant…the fact remains that all women are beautiful. There is only a slight shift in perception between what we see as beauty and what we refer to as ugly. What we each consider to be beautiful is defined by a composite of thoughts that we have collected in our search for a definition of beauty and this composite is the image of the beautiful person we have in the back of our minds. It is from this composite belief or concepts that we match all images against in our definition of beauty. Everything is a concept until it is integrated. Often our sense of personal beauty comes from society’s definition of beauty, misaligning us from our actual truth, beauty, and love. The message to disconnect from our essential self and Source becomes integrated into what becomes our reality-ugliness!
When we judge ourselves against society’s standards and norms of beauty and mutilate our bodies to fit this distortion, we in turn distort ourselves to reflect this distorted image. When essential or divine beauty is lost in the concepts carried in the head rather than of the heart, our unique beauty is fabricated into something false. It is this false concept of beauty that causes us to become unattractive in our imbalance. When we are unbalanced, bitter and angry our uniqueness and love cannot shine through and we become ugly fulfilling a self-prophecy in the way we think about our selves.
Women must begin to see their beauty in terms of her innate power and unique beauty as a reflection of God-Goddess that she holds within her rather than just a physical identification of her attractiveness. She must identify with her essential wholeness that in part comes from the creativity and power generated from her womb, her ability to create life and to nurture that life in hardship until that life can care for itself. The reproductive system is the power center that responds to the instinctual urge to procreate and the extra source of creative power in the female gender body that is foreign to the male. The extra life force lies within our ovaries that are whole in their life giving capacity to produce either sex–other whole females or change, to create a male. Within the female is both male and female simultaneously and thus, her power resides in both masculine and feminine strengths. Symbolically, women unlike men innately contain an inner phallic and a physical womb. This essential difference between the gender bodies makes it challenging for men to embrace his feminine aspect, which must be cultivated through discipline. The Taoists masters call the male practice of attending the feminine within, cultivating a spiritual embryo. Females are born with this life-giving capacity and it is already an inherent part of her nature.

It is said that the Present is Pregnant with the Future. ~Voltaire
The female does not have to use her reproductive powers to bear children, but she must be wise to understand that her power resides from her power to reproduce. Once the soul (the inhabitant of the physical body) recognizes the endurance advantage of the female body it can begin to use its power resource productively and creatively in ways mundane or sublime. A wise woman in touch with her essence will often seek advanced options and use her powerful forces to preserve her self by retaining or controlling her sexual power that she shares instead of giving away. In place of forming a fetus from a fertilized egg, she uses her ovarian energy (Uterine Chalice) to raise her primordial sexual energy into the higher energy centers in the body. On a spiritual level she gives birth. Literally, a rebirth or new life that brings confidence in controlling the powerful flow of creative energy that gives satisfaction and a higher sense of balance and harmony with the world.
Before cultivation of female sexual energy is possible we must transform or neutralize our wounding experiences so that our generative region can re-gain sensitivity and open up. The vagina is like a flower and the wombs energy is the force that unfolds her. If her bud is outwardly forced to open to soon or roughly fissures are created and she may never blossom as her energy is withdrawn seeping through the cracks of her womb and her petals grow weak and shrivel from lack of feeling nourishment. She may never trust or feel safe again to unfold her glory. This is the deep wound that must be healed. When the womb is cracked it loses energy with capacity to hold energy at all, rendering the female powerless. When the womb is whole again it regains capacity and flexibility to hold and cultivate sexual energy. How can we begin to normalize the genital area to help restore wholesome sexuality? With Polarity Integration, the Infinity Body Awareness Technique and trust in your deepest self are the tools for integration that will help you address personal issues on multi-dimensional levels.

Cultivating the Sacred Feminine through
The framework for transformation of the spirit and psyche is based upon the force of dynamic Universal energy, its Laws and Principles and cultivation of that force by harnessing sexual energy for higher use; to align the physical, emotional and mental bodies; and integrate spiritual and core gender energies through these powerful energies that pervade life. Effectively harnessing the creative impulse of life affirming energies through the heart helps us to create a firm foundation and centeredness of self. Within the heart are where our answers reside and the uniqueness of our gifts revealed. The heart is the center of awareness. It is where all energies converge and where our deepest passions lie under the layers of doubt, resistance, societal and familial conditioning.
When the personality does not act in accordance with the authentic self it persists in illusion. Illusion creates internal conflict because the urge of the deepest Self is not heard and the lower ego acts against the Principle of Unity and forces its own agenda against the higher Will of the Authentic Self. This causes the personality to live behind a mask. Wearing a mask limits authentic communication and a deeper connection with Self and others. Living life from behind a psychological faceplate produces duality, conflict, sexual imbalance, unhappiness, depression and health issues by default. When the human spirit is kept in bondage by the limitation of lower sexual energies and their inhibitions that is produced by living on the track of fear, the cultivation of personal power that governs the law of its being in tandem with Universal Principle and creative effectiveness renders obsolete.
Voluntarily set aside your mask, the security of familiar gender roles and habitual defense mechanisms and liberate the wings of your soul! As you enter the space of the sacred feminine and willingly “sheath the layers of inauthenticity” that does not accurately reflect your potential, you learn creative uses of sexual energy for integration of opposing forces, and then transform those negative energies that hold you back from fulfilling your creative purpose.
The Cultivation of Sexual or generative energy concerns the myriad uses and expression of those energies psychologically, physically-sexually and emotionally. However, obstructed sexual energy that is freed enhances sexual pleasure and aliveness that opens us to greater passion. When fear of intimacy is released, our hearts open to greater love that lends capacity to give and receive love deepening relationships on all levels expanding consciousness and deeper levels of compassion for both self and others.
“It’s time to pay attention to the Heart. For a man, a woman symbolizes his soul. For a woman, a man symbolizes her protection and self-actualization. It is time to sing to your Soul and ask for Love.”
The Buddha was asked: “Is there only one summit of consciousness or are there several?”
He replied: “One and several. As one state of consciousness is realized, then the next is seen.
Thus there are several and there is one.”He was then asked: “Which is first, awareness or knowledge?”
“Awareness arises first and then comes knowledge.
One can then say, ‘Because of my awareness, I know this as a fact.” ~Digha Nikaya
CULTIVATING THE INNER DIAMOND
The Evolutionary Process of the Soul
“Knowledge is not the accumulation of data or the information of thought. True knowledge is to merge with the living field of knowing itself.”
|On the journey of self-discovery, we all spiral through stages that release us from the limitations that stand between the egoic personality and the awareness of our Soul. Each evolving stage unravels kaleidoscopic facets of our pain reflected by our limitations, blockages and imbalances in our bodies’ energy system until they are dissolute. In the sheathing process these limiting mental patterns and energy blockages are released and clarity dawns via our emergent inner light where the Diamond within becomes visible. The facets reveal to us different perceptions of an experience and we discover why our maladaptive patterns are no longer needed, as it becomes understood that our unresolved emotions, self-doubt, confusion, and self-limiting beliefs, judgments and sometimes our illnesses are the experience of our fear-based emotions.
While the process we experience in life is unique to each of us, we are not “alone.” There is initially nothing new in our stories that has not been shared or experienced before in some way by others. We experience a critical mass within ourselves that causes a rebirth or a death while living in our bodies. The vast amounts of letting go and the releasing of the lower vibrational energiesof our belief patterns opens us to experience the “dark night of the Soul.”
The only way out is through! When we finally pass through the dark tunnel of what feels like the ultimate abyss, into the light of day we step out with a recalibrated psyche. We find that our consciousness is sensitized to a wider vision of life, nuance, and feeling, colors are brighter and we see and hear things in greater detail and with deeper meaning. Everything is alive and somehow we never quite noticed the way the sunbeam hit the dew on the flower bush refracting back a rainbow to the eyes in the kingdoms of Nature to a source of its life elixir – water. There is an inner stability that rests within us when everything is so beautiful! Walking in Beauty is the hallmark of the Soul. If we choose to aspire higher, we continue to pass through levels of graduating or ascending awareness of spiritual light. Our energy field slowly expands and becomes brighter and subtler. As we learn the lessons experience has to offer, the wisdom gained elevates consciousness to a higher level. When a new plateau is reached, the lower vibrations become glaringly uncomfortable and we recgonize that they no longer serve any purpose. At this point, such patterns have outlived their evolutionary usefulness and we can now move to the next phase of refinement.
This is how energy works – there are no shortcuts. Each stage of development must be integrated and complete in the now in order to vibrate higher, creating more unified experiences and expanded vectors of perception. With each inner alignment, we recognize more fully our divinity, which brings us closer to a life filled with joy, love, self-liberation and creative expression that characterizes the experience of the Soul. The goal of this process or “cultivation of the innerdiamond” is to interface more fully with the Soul urge, the purpose of incarnation, and ultimately, to achieve full somatic enlightenment. The Universal Laws of Life with its attraction and repulsion helps guide our way. For instance, aligning with the Spirit in Nature always supports our highest and best Self, while negative emotion is our resistance to the Laws of Life.

People are saying…
Hello Dearest Alisa. You are a catalyst for the significant altering of my life, the great shift that has taken place and for that I am extremely grateful.
I owe a lot of my current knowledge and where I am in life to you. I appreciate all that you have guided me to and opened my awareness and consciousness. Lots of love and blessings Alisa xoxo ~ LaurenSybil H Mac
Dear Alisa, you’re an inspiration, a mirror, for all of us and.. I feel so fortunate to have you as a mentor / friend. What you say is so true, we (i) all to frequently succumb to the darker side of thinking, thinking thoughts of scarcity, thoughts of fear, remorse, aging / physical discomfort, sadness, hopelessness. These thoughts seem to be pervasive in our world and.. as you say, they all to often dominate our consciousness and we (i) give our power to them. Perhaps it is as simple as turning our (my) attention to the brighter side of this life experience, a choice. – I think so! With that, i celebrate that place (love, peace, understanding, generosity) in myself and all of you. Thank you for being who you are and being in my life, sharing and caring. And… yes, please help me to be the best i can be. ~Daniel Duggan
