We are all familiar now with the famous Tunnel from those who come back from the Realms of the Dead and recount their near death experiences. But another common factor in these accounts, and yet one that is little reported, is the overwhelmingly ecstatic feeling of love that surrounds them during their brief sojourn to the Other Side.
And far from them coming under the harsh judgement of a Jehovah-type God who sternly weighs their “sins” in the balance, there is only a gentle self-assessment, which is often kindly supported by their ancestral spirits, that informs their view about whether or not it would be the wisest course to return into an often broken, and thus painful, human form, because their “appointments” on that rung of The Ladder of the Wise had not yet been met.
Many who return to This Side find that their new realisations cause their life to change, and they take up new interests – and sometimes new trainings and new professions – in order to better align themselves with their life’s purpose. This is all to the good. However, it is a little-known fact that one can reach the Other Side without going through the death experience, and it is by following a technique I call the Ecstasy of the Heart.
I find when I practise the Ecstasy of the Heart that I go through a portal into the loving embrace of my ancestors, and once the connection is made, deleriously ecstatic healing energies come flying through from the Other Side that have the effect of purifying, realigning and recalibrating my ethereal body, so that I’m better in line with my true purpose and destiny. It is actually an incredibly blissful healing experience that one can feel physically taking place. It is not imaginery – although it is often accompanied by beautiful visions.
This is nothing like the psychoactive designer-drug sort of “ecstasy” (or MDMA), which, to my mind, is not ecstatic at all but produces more a combination of dizziness and psychological dis-memberment or disassociation caused by a dystopian brew containing methamphetamine and even sometimes rat poison. MDMA can create a very weak, disempowering kind of faux “love” that borders on sentimentality. By contrast, in getting in touch with the ancestral portal through the heart, one experiences the natural, innate ecstasy and rapturous, exhilarating love from which the fabric of this Universe is made, and it is true, organic healing because it re-members us, and realigns us with our “appointments” and our destiny.
I have described this technique in two of my books: The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar and also The Grail Mysteries because The Ecstasy of the Heart is part of the alchemical Great Work known as the Marriage of the Sun and the Moon. The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon is expressed in sacred geometry as the Vesica Piscis, for which the heart symbol is a kind of stylised shorthand.
