“As we move into the energy of the Magdalene Gateway on 8-8-8 (2015), the totem of the Lion is of huge significance, this is the Lions Gate. Courage, bravery, perseverance and the ability to stand ones ground and be fully connected to the Earth plane is what is happening here. This naturally opens a portal because the Divine Feminine energies are linked to the Galactic core, the God-head and the Pleroma and so the more grounded this energy is, the more these divine powers will flood the Earth plane.” ……….Laura Magdalene Eisenhower
On 08.08.2015 as I was browsing the Facebook, the above quote struck me as significant due to its cosmic interpretation and as my own astrological sign happens to be Leo. There could be a synchronicity in a resultant thought that occurred to me and prompted me to write this article.
While the quote expresses the significance of the opening of the portal connecting the Divine plenum and the individual consciousness at the planetary level, it must also be understood that the Divine plenum being beyond the comprehension and grasp of the human consciousness has to have a point of intersection below which all manifestations have to be the expression of the Divine plenum but which needs a non-dual understanding. This intersection is what is called the Lion Gate or the Magdalene Gateway. In esoteric interpretation and from the human evolutionary timeline the Amygdala, which lies buried within the reptilian brain in the human beings, is also assigned the role of a portal to the third eye or the portal through which higher consciousness can be accessed. In human responses in the face of danger or threat, it is the Amygdala that plays a key role by passing the hippocampus and deriving direct behavioural, Autonomic and Endocrine emotional response.[i]
There is also an intimate connection between the Amygdala and the Pineal Gland.
Eastern spiritual traditions have understood this connectivity and has initiated spiritual practices which energize our Pineal gland through intense meditation.
The reason why I am going to great length to explain this association within the biological system of different mental planes and their connectivity is to establish that the Magdalene gate and the Amygdala-Pineal gland axis is one and the same and reflects the cosmic portal.
At the cosmic level, as the quote refers, the Galactic core is the portal through which connection to higher consciousness plane happens. We already know that every galaxy has a powerful black/white hole at its centre. This is the engine that drives the entire manifestation within the galaxy. The black hole is the horizon at which the four dimensional space-time, in which we individuals exist, vanishes into a white hole of higher dimensional reality. What we witness at the cosmic level is the same that transpires within the individual human consciousness. The pineal gland is the corresponding portal to the black/white hole of the galactic centre.
Now how this concept is conveyed through the scriptures can be seen in the following verse (I resort to only the Biblical reference):
“And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” …………..Revelation 5:5
Opening the scroll and the seven seals refers to the upward movement of the serpent or Kundalini energy from the root chakra through all the seven chakras to establish a connection with the Godhead.
If we refer to modern literature, C. S. Lewis author of “The Chronicles of Narnia” wrote a letter to a friend of his which has now been published and therein he writes to explain the archetype of the talking lion as referring to the Divine consciousness of Christ:
“The stories are my answer. Since Narnia is a world of talking beasts, I thought Christ would become a talking beast (a talking beast represents an animal with higher consciousness) there as he became a man (God or higher consciousness living among man the lower consciousness) here. I pictured him becoming a lion there because a) the lion is supposed to be the king of beasts; b) Christ is called ‘the lion of Judah’ in the Bible.”
Words would be inadequate to express how one should process this knowledge we gain into an action. But an open minded enquiry through knowledge we gain in matters of the spirit always raises the intuitive creative potential and could act as the launch platform for elevation of our consciousness.
Please send your blessings, prayers and intentions for my continued work in the field of esoteric interpretation of mythologies and sacred writings.
Love to you all
