The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

I will jump right to the point and not dilly-dally until I have read it a thousand more times (each time, you find something new, or something makes more sense), because I think that I have the key elements of the Tablets down, so I will get right to it!

I think what the Tablets try to teach people is the history of mankind “losing” higher consciousness because of greed, lust, anger, and other lower emotions. Thus lowering the overall vibrational frequency of the world and making it a more grosser and less vibrant place. The process is akin to taking the keys away from the heart, ajna, crown, and throat chakra, and bestowing it to the solar plexus, navel, basic, and sex chakra. From such great heights to take such a plummet, don’t you think?

In these texts, Atlantis “sinking” is the very depiction of this event, and Atlantis symbolizes the higher faculties of man. One of the keys into unlocking Thoth’s ancient secrets is by constant meditation and self-purification, which then activates the Third Eye and the Threefold Flame of the Heart and leads to more clarity and higher dimensional thinking (love, peace, and understanding also comes when this occurs). Or leads to “gateways” into higher realms. (I have actually experienced this in meditation, and it is a trip, let me tell you.)

It is also the gateway into eternity, and what it essentially does is shed the death consciousness that humanity donned on long ago, which was the result of humanity lowering its vibration by entertaining lesser thoughts and forms of expression. The Key to Life, as he mentions time and time again throughout the texts (the Ankh, I believe), is some combination of the Third Eye and the Threefold Flame.

This then simply concludes as thusly: Through constant meditation (which requires effort and self-purification of thoughts, actions, and emotions) and allowing Divine Light to flow through you (by the proper awakening of the Kundalini energy and the Spirit Cord taking in more Divine energy) a human being is able to activate the Third Eye (see things clearly in a cosmically conscious way) and realize that they are divine sparks, souls, that are created perfectly in the likeness of the Divine Supreme God. The Threefold Flame also plays a significant role because its growth is essential to the overall Ascension process which Thoth is speaking of. The “fire” that cleanses and illumines can be attributed to the fire of the Threefold Flame, which when ignited, can roar through the different vehicles of the body and sanctify it. It is by reaching Christ Consciousness that all of this is possible.

Once this has taken place, what that allows them (beings) to do is free themselves of the three dimensional physical world (not by dying, since this is more of a rebirth), which is filled with glamours of death, lack, and darkness. By shedding the “darkness” in themselves and in the world, they become “eternal” because they are then living as all-seeing souls in a visible incarnated vehicle called the physical body (of course, there is also the emotional, mental, and etheric/spiritual body that play into this equation). Not the other way around.

It has been translated in a way that seems pretty straightforward, but is actually highly symbolic in most aspects. (I think!) Of course, all of this is my interpretation of the texts, so feel free to agree or disagree. I just felt the need to share this because I kept getting guided by my Spiritual Teachers to share this information, and I felt that it was the right thing to do, since there is so much mystery and intrigue surrounding these ancient texts.

There is more that I can get into in regards to the texts (such as “The Seven Lords” actually representing the seven major chakras that were known of back then), but I will do that when I have done a more thorough read-through, so that I can highlight some of the different terms in the texts and their symbolic counterparts more completely and in greater detail.

For now, I think this is a nice jump-off point. If anyone has anything that they would like to discuss about them, please let me know. All comments are welcome. I don’t really pretend to know anything other than what I feel is true for me (and I know there is more that I can learn from it the more that I read it), so I am sure there might be more extensive explanations out there in regards to this highly intriguing piece of literature.

Hope that this was at least a little illuminating!

Blessings,

Ani

P.S. Some links that I came across while I was grappling with fully understanding the Tablets, that really helped me bridge some gaps and feel as though I was interpreting them correctly.

This website has been such a wonderful gift of a find for me. Truly built on Light and truth. That is all that I can sense from it intuitively. Give it a shot and see how you feel:

The translated version of the Tablets can be found here with some other commentary:

Frankly, I haven’t read this version of the Tablets from this website, but I am not able to find the link to the other website I perused. I have no idea what the commentary is in regards to the website linked above, but once I have read the Tablets a few more times for myself and feel more secure in my overall understanding of them, then I will give that one a go!

Note: Found the original link! (Letting the above stay in case others are interested in the commentary.)

Before I go any further in outlining the steps to living a happier, healthier life, I have to – simply HAVE to – talk about one very important thing: Shortcuts.

Yes, shortcuts. What do I mean by it? Well, when you want something really, really badly, to the degree where you would, perhaps, do anything to gain it/do it… It leads you to make some very poor choices to either achieve it (pretty rare), or fall even further away from attaining whatever it is that you want.

You guys, we’ve all been there. I have been there. I have looked at some of these weird, mystical and odd shortcuts, and wondered if it wouldn’t hurt to give them a try. I have talked to others who have tried to jump some of the steps – or force some of the steps on the staircase into existence – only to really confuse themselves in the end, and make their minds even murkier in the process.

As one Proverb states: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

Don’t fall off the path, don’t quit, don’t go looking in dark places… The waiting period is the most wonderful part, as frustrating as that may sound. It is the very moment where real changes are occurring (on a deeper, cosmic level), when your universe is reshaping and trying to conform to the new life you want to live. That you MUST live, because you are meant to.

You can’t cleanse and absolve your past by any shortcuts. I mean, I’m in my mind-twenties, and that, in and of itself, implies that I have 2 decades worth of cleansing to do (when you really think about it). I’m not even counting other situations/events where I might find myself in that I might need to whip out Ho’oponopono for. I will gain nothing by trying to quickly glean over everything from back then and slap on a band-aid, just to get ahead quicker. One of the ways that the unfolding and the biggest changes occur for you is by FACING your past, forgiving yourself, LOVING yourself, and feeling good and comfortable with totally moving on and being in the present. You MUST do this, before changing anything else in your life for the better. That is how you help attract more love, more prosperity, and more success to yourself.

After doing some more research about Gurus that help you open up chakras and the third eye and say certain phrases in order to “make” manifestation happen for you – I only saw trouble. Guys, I mean, I don’t know how smart it is to go around forcing yourself to become more powerful. The easiest way for Infinite Intelligence and for Cosmic Energy to work for you, is to go through the first few steps I have outlined in my blog. By not skipping these steps, you are ensuring that your mind becomes clearer, sharper, and more focused, and that inevitably leads to all of your cells and your body energy to vibrate at a higher frequency, leading to results. Through diligent work and focus, you reprogram your own mind – and thus, your own world – and the plants do grow, and the flowers do blossom. They bloom. I’m telling you, it’s a thing of beauty.

I’ve been doing more research on all of the energy fields in the body, and how one can open them up so that they are “rewarded quicker”… and the downsides of it isn’t really explained in sufficient enough detail for me. There is actually very little valuable information to be found, that isn’t half-formed and simple personal accounts. There isn’t much pertinent and scientific evidence out there that supports the real good that comes from doing this. From saying “Om” until your Third Eye chakra opens up, or by doing any of the other numerous things that some attempt. (Subliminal videos with the sounds and frequencies programmed in it, for one.)

Every person has their own path and I wish every one of them well, in doing whatever it is that they freely choose to do, but while science does support that certain sounds said as a mantra – or written down, in some cases – help shift your energy to call upon whatever it is that you are chanting, I, personally, would rather keep a mental line of delineation there. I tried it for a week for the sake of science, to keep an open mind (so that I know what it is that I am reporting on), but I only felt discomfort and a sense of wrongness. Now, that might not be the case for you, but for me, it didn’t feel right. It felt as though I was straying away from my natural path.

Some might say that the discomfort was simply because I wasn’t as naturally “open” to it, or that I didn’t want to explore it – that’s not true. I went into it with my eyes both open – no pun intended – and really wanting to dig my hands in there, do research, read/watch testimonials, try it a bit, and figure it all out. What I learned, was this: Don’t force these things, if you aren’t in that spiritual place, mentally and physically. Don’t force a change upon yourself that your body might not be ready for, and consider unnatural. (Kundalini Energy is one of them. The dangers of that are murky and unknown, but it can lead to nerve damage? And other unpleasant physical reactions? Yeah, don’t force it.)

Do you know what some people, who have, for example, forced their Third Eye open, say? It’s really exciting, they feel as though they are at the right place, at the right time, more often, but some also report that they hear things and perhaps see things that they weren’t prepared to see. While some Gurus try to sugarcoat is as a gift, I don’t know how thrilled I’d be to start seeing spirits and having them come to me/talk at me.

Some Gurus say that opening up the Third Eye, opens up the entire cosmos/dimensions to you. That sounds, theoretically, fascinating. It also sounds terrifying.

Also, one other thing: There is not enough warnings attached to these practices, for people who might’ve accidentally stumbled upon these videos, articles, etc. to heed to. I like parsing things out and finding out all of the working parts to something, and for me, personally, the lack of information about these energies you activate that can possibly negatively affect you, makes me think it is perhaps wiser to stick to things that are easier to understand and that you have full control over; mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I have been wanting to post about this for a week, but really haven’t found the right way to say it, so that I don’t offend anyone who might practice this and feel no adverse affects. The certain lack of information about the entirety of the subject – Third Eye, Universal Sound Mantras and what have you – also suggests to me that the vast knowledge necessary to quantify and qualify it, is still in its infancy stages.

I just ask that you all keep your own safety, health, and well-being in mind, when you dabble with the unknown. I wish you all well, truly.

And, whilst I was writing this post, I remembered and searched through my copy of Wallace Wattles’ The Science of Getting Rich, and found this gem (the book covers faith, mind programming, and other wonderful information):

Also, postpone your investigations into the occult. Do not dabble in theosophy, Spiritualism, or kindred studies. It is very likely that the dead still live, and are near; but if they are, let them alone; mind your own business.

Wherever the spirits of the dead may be, they have their own work to do, and their own problems to solve; and we have no right to interfere with them. We cannot help them, and it is very doubtful whether they can help us, or whether we have any right to trespass upon their time if they can. Let the dead and the hereafter alone, and solve your own problem; get rich.

–Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

And if you Google the book and author, you will find a free link to the book as the second link. I HIGHLY recommend reading it, dear readers. It is jam-packed with amazing and useful – life-changing – information that Wallace Wattles observed and wrote about in the early 1900s. It’s one of my go-to books, even to this day. Crazy, right?

I hope this information was helpful and interesting, at the very least, and helped you get a better understanding of the subjects. If anyone has any stories to share, perhaps of their own experiences, then please feel free to share. I really and truly want to understand everything that these subjects encompass, so that I can better help and inform people, in a more objective way. I love information, I love sharing what I know from personal experiences, endless researches (from scientific journals, published authors/researchers in those niches, etc.) and whatever else that might be available to me.

Love,

Ani

P.S.  I do believe in spirits and what have you, so that’s why I feel it is important that people get better informed. I also wrote this especially for people who are new to Spirituality, Mysticism, Laws of the Universe, and anything else that might pertain to those categories  – and they might be looking for an “easier” way of doing things or looking for shortcuts, without doing the research and taking their full well-being into account. It can be tempting and seductive to jump in without any prior experience and knowledge, I know.

P.P.S.  I made my mind up two weeks ago to finally learn to play the piano (I have been wanting to since I was a child), and my mom called me to tell me that she saw a commercial for piano lessons locally, and that she already called the lady – who sounded nice and accommodating – and set me up with private lessons starting next week! My mom also happens to know this woman from childhood, and she was a wonderful piano player (received awards, etc.), and… once you figure these things out, you realize that coincidences don’t exist. You create EVERY, SINGLE THING.
