We will introduce Sacred Geometry as an energetic science and describe the geometric structures of the subtle bodies. We will discuss how we can consciously reshape our subtle energy bodies through geometric meditation and contemplation. This allows higher spiritual beings to live in our thinking, feeling, and willing.
Discussion Topics:
- Sacred Geometry as energy science: ideas in the One Mind
- Geometric structures of the subtle bodies
- Illuminating the thinking: concepts as spiritual organs of perception
- Energetic resonance with thought-forms
- Meditation instructions for geometric forms: Imagination, Inspiration, Intuition
- Suggested meditations: the Circle, Triangle, Square, Pentagram, Hexagram, Platonic Solids: Tetrahedtron, Octahedtron, Cube, Icosahedron, Dodecahedron, Star Tetrahedtron (Merkaba)
- Exercises for protection: Magic Circle, LBRP, Rose Cross Ritual, Hexagram shields, Archangelic Pentagrams.
- Mystical vs. Magical vs. Alchemical aspects to this work
- The ultimate goal is to crystallize stable structures in our subtle bodies that become permanent abilities in all future incarnations

Overview: Basic interpretations and lessons on the High Priestess, letter Gimel, number 2. Meditation from the Book of Tokens. Application of the lessons for success in life.
Discussion Topics:
- The High Priestess is a primary symbol of subconsciousness. The powers of subconsciousness are represented by the symbolism of Key 2. The Laws (TORA) of subconsciousness: Association & memory. The Seven Hermetic Principles.
- The Prima Materia of the Alchemists. Alchemical Water. Astrological Moon and the Third Eye chakra.
- The letter Gimel and its important gematria correspondences: Camel, Rope, Wisdom, Gallilee.
- The NET concept. Subconsciousness builds and records association-chains between symbols. This is responsible for all communication systems. We can communicate with the source of Inner Wisdom through developing a rapport with the subconscious symbol language. Mastering the occult symbol systems allows us to tune in to the thoughts of the great Adepts and Masters.
- Interpretations of the prominent features of the symbolism and their meanings and teachings. Pillars, veil, palms & pomegranates, crown, cross, cubic throne, wavy robe, Tora scroll.

Overview: Mathematics as a mental discipline. Training in thought-control. Mathematics as a system of occult development. Sense-free thinking. Alchemical Mathematics.
Discussion Topics:
The Seven Stages of Mathematical Mental Development:
1. Concentration
2. Memory
3. Imagination
4. Reason
5. Intuition
6. Discrimination
7. Victory
Exercising the mind through problem-solving sharpens the Sword on the Magician's table. Studying mathematical theories grows new brain cells into organized stuctures for higher cognition. Where to begin: Symbolic Logic & Set Theory.
Mathematics was used by the Pythagorean Brotherhood as a means to an end, but was not the goal itself. The true goal: to develop mental perception of the spiritual world. Sense-free thinking and how the intellect becomes clairvoyant. Mathematics takes us up to the treshhold of the spiritual world, but no farther. Mathematics is a means of occult education, where we use the same style of mathematical thinking to cognize the spiritual world.
Mathematical alchemy encodes thought-forms into our astral body which allow us to grow organs of super-sensible perception. Plant alchemy & the mathematics of life: fractals. Mineral alchemy & geometric structure.
Developing sense-free thinking through mathematical theories. Mathematical structures as worlds of thought-forms. Dimensionality and the spiritual worlds. Developing fourth-dimensional awareness.
Mathematical concentration: definitions, examples, theorems. Mathematical meditation: free association, visualization of geometric objects, visualization of analytical constructions.

Overview: Basic interpretation of The Magician, letter Beth, and Number 1. Meditation from The Book of Tokens. Entering into The Magician.
Discussion Topics:
- The number 1 symbolizes beginnings, self-consciousness, and attention. Relative unity vs. Absolute unity.
- Beth: Correspondences. Meditation on the House. Reading from Sepher Yetzirah. Meditaton from The Book of Tokens.
- The Magician: every act of attention is an act of magic. Thus, we are all truly magicians and are doing true magic all the time.
- Lessons of The Magician: Self-consciousness receives power from above and projects it down below.
- The importance of The Magician in Tarot: all numbers have the number 1 in them; the four suits of the minor arcana are the four magical implements on the Magician's table, and these implements also symbolize the Four Maxims: to Know, to Will, to Dare, to Be Silent.
- Why the Tarot is such a powerful magical tool: mental imagery is the gateway to higher knowledge.

Geometry of the Net. The language of shape. How Numbers relate to Geometry. Reshaping our Net into a Sacred Geometric form. How to Meditate on Sacred Geometry. Geometric Alchemical Recipies. Speaking the Magical Language of Geometry.
Discussion topics:
How the Net is built: Numbers, Topology and Geometry.
The concept of Number is basic to the Net. The words we associate with Numbers give the Net its Topology. The advanced stages of Alchemy involve working with the Geometry of the Net.
The importance of Geometry in the Western Mysteries. Greeks mathematicians: Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid. Sacred Geometric temple science. Pyramid power.
The Geometric Alchemist gives precedence to Beauty over anything else. He knows he is headed in the right direction if what he desires is Beauty.
Meditation with Sacred Geometry. We begin with concentration on Sacred Geometric shapes. The Circle, the Vesica Piscis, the Regular Polygons. Then we use compass and ruler as our magical tools as we ritualize the movements of symbolic creation.
This enmeshes the Geometry into our Net. The pattern is crystallized in our memory field, it stabilizes and subconsciousness can use it as a model. Subconsciousness then rewires itself and reshapes itself following the Sacred Geometric form.
Working with the Flower of Life, Tree of Life, Metatron's Cube, the Mandelbrot Set.
Geometric Magic: with the Five Platonic Solids, Drawing the sigils of the angels: the language of the angels is found in the geometry of angles.
Beauty and Gold await as long as the alchemist remains patient. The work of rebuilding the alchemical laboratory is really the work of the One Alchemist preparing the conditions for advanced stages of the Great Work.

The Net of Numbers forms the deepest layers of the subconscious, which is universal. We can associate Numbers with Words as a master filing-system. This rewires our Net so that we can speak the Magical Language.
Gematria by example: Numbers 15, 21, 26, 42, 52, 53, 65, 73, 496, many more.
Gematria of the Tree of Life, Archangels, Planets, Zodiac, Shem ha-Mephorash.
Qabalistic Alchemical Numerology: Reductions, Extensions, Articulations.
Once we have built our Net so that we are capable of performing Gematria operations and meditations, we can then read into the deeper understandings of esoteric texts.
The Rosicrucian alchemical language is made clear through an understanding of Gematria. The Rosicrucian Manifestoes: Fama Fraternitatis, Confessio Fraternitatis.
Gematria is only one aspect of Qabalistic analysis of Numbers and Words. Future episodes will discuss how to deepen our practical knowledge of Gematria once we understand the esoteric meanings of the Hebrew Letters.

Numbers as the universal process of manifestation. Through alchemical distillation and crystallization of the Number pattern, we reprogram our subconscious mind. The result is that our mental images may become manifest as actualities with increasing rapidity.
Discussion Topics:
- What is true magic? Can anyone perform true magic? Answer: Yes, we are doing true magic all the time. Why don't we realize this?
- How to attune our consciousness to the universal process of manifestation through the study of Numbers.
- Basic meanings of the numeral signs 0-9.
