Our journey through the seven-dimensional aspects of our Sacred Anatomy brings us now to a consideration of the first vibratory seal in this sacred temple, the Gonads (from the Greek gone, meaning seed). These delicate yet powerful pairs of glands are located in the pelvic region of the human anatomy.
The female aspects, the ovaries, are embedded in the folds of the broad ligament, a hammock-like support which suspends the womb within the pelvic girdle in front of the sacrum, the triangular bone connecting the two pelvic blades and forming thedorsal portion of the pelvis.
The male aspects, the testes, are suspended outside the pelvic region and contained in the sac of the scrotum. As their name implies, these glands produce the “seeds” that spawn human life. The ancients believed that life originated from this region of the physical anatomy, thus the origin of the word sacrum, which means sacred bone. They may not have been too far off the mark, as we shall see, for what does originate here in this region of our anatomy is truly of a sacred nature. But first let us look at the hormonal chemistry and physiology of these pro-generative glands.
Their Hormonal Activities
The hormones produced by the Gonads play pivotal roles throughout the body temple. Right from the start, their secretions determine the sexual characteristics of the embryo and then continue to influence the growth, maturation and development of the male and female forms.
For example, the first role testosterone plays, as mentioned earlier in our consideration of hormones as “crystal messengers of light,” is to split the brain into two lobes in both the female and the male embryo. The quantity of testosterone produced in the developing fetus will determine how much brain tissue remains connected between the two hemispheres and, therefore, whether it will be a male or a female form. The female brain has more corpus callosum tissue connecting the two lobes than the male brain has, giving women greater integration between right brain and left brain in their thinking processes. It is thought that this greater complexity tends to bring in more of the artistic and aesthetic “feelings” surrounding issues being considered, as compared to the male thinking processes which tend to be more logical, cold and calculating.
As we considered earlier also, estrogen and progesterone, the two primary ovarian hormones, give the female form its graceful curves and softness, as well as its emotional climate and the expression of feminine energies. These two hormones work synergistically to provide for a controlled growth of new tissue wherever it is needed, as in the development of the endometrial lining of the uterus in preparation for the fertilized ovum, and in the process of bone replacement where both play an essential role together in breaking out old, brittle bone (progesterone’s role) and replacing it with new bone tissue (estrogen’s role). The dominant presence of estrogen without the controlling factors progesterone offers into the process of new growth will result in an unbridled proliferation of neoplasm in the developing fetus, as well as elsewhere in the body temple where such proliferation may develop into cancerous tumors.
When the young adolescent reaches puberty, the hypothalamus initiates hormonal changes in both the female and the male by secreting a chemical called gonadotropin-releasing hormone, or GnRH. Elevations in GnRh sends a signal to the pituitary gland of the young girl to release two hormones called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which initiates adult ovarian function. The girl becomes a childbearing woman.
Testosterone, the male partner to estrogen, gives the male form its strong, muscular characteristics and provides for the expression of the masculine achieving energy. These hormones are produced in the body under the initiative and direction of the Pituitary Gland, where, as we have seen, the Spirit of the Womb abides and oversees the Creative Process. Both male and female hormones are to be found in men and women alike, with one more dominant than the other in each sex respectively, providing for the expression of the masculine and the feminine currents of energy through Man. These highly charged energies work together as partners in co-creation with the Spirit of the New Earth.
Closely associated with the Gonads are the organs of reproduction themselves: the uterus which provides a womb for the conception, gestation and development of the human embryo; the fallopian tubes that convey an ovum into the uterus each and every month; and the erectile structure of the glans clitoridis (clitoris) which activates the contractions during sexual orgasm. In the male the glans penis (penis), situated below and around the rim of head of the penis, serve this purpose, triggering climatic waves that convey sperm from the testicles through the seminal vesicle—a highly convoluted duct called the “vas deferens”—and into the ejaculatory duct of the penis, and the prostate gland which secretes, as well as propels, an alkaline fluid containing the sperm through the penis and into the vagina during intercourse, where some of the sperm find their way through the cervix, the birthing portal of the womb, and into the uterus with intent to fertilize the ovum. These organ/glands define at the physical level of creation the giving and receiving aspects of the masculine and the feminine energies.
The vessels of our sexual organs are especially sacred in that they connect the seven endocrine glands of the female temple with those of the male during the temple service of sexual intercourse. They may be seen, perhaps, as the right and left hand of the Creator, joined together in holy union—the positively-charged masculine with the negatively-charged feminine energies— for the purpose of releasing a unified current of love into the world. Ultimately, as we shall explore, they are instrumental in generating the alchemy by which atomic substance is transmuted into the spiritualized substance of pneumaplasm, the silvery medium by which ecstatic union with the Divine is known in the ultimate sacramental ritual of sacred sex. All of these glands and organs are the domain of the Spirit of the New Earth.
Musical Shaping of Sacred Space
This first-level center for the differentiation of the awesome power of love emits a vibration which corresponds with the longest of the seven dominant wavelengths in the light spectrum, Red, correlating with the musical pitch of A 440 , which re-sounds the vibratory pitch of invisible ultra-violet light at the top of the spectrum. This lower vibration moves down to a G Natural red at the root Chakra, which represents the grounding our bodies provide for us between the current of the Creative Process and the natural world of the Good Earth, which is a further extension of the continuum spectrum of energy as it manifests in shades of red and brown earth tones, and which provides the materials for the construction of the body temple.
The invisible, inaudible music of the spheres begins to be made visible in singing flesh. Perhaps there is a significant correlation, as we considered earlier, with the intonation of the pitch of A 440 by the Concert Master in tuning the orchestra just before the conductor’s baton comes down to start the music. The symphony of each life expression begins with the pitch of A 440 before it is differentiated into the unique individual expression of each one’s “key signature.” We each play our particular notes in the grand symphony of human life on Earth. Everything we see external to ourselves is but a reflection and echo of the designs found throughout the anatomy and physiology of the human temple.
For example, one can “hear” a pre-sounding of the vibratory pitches in the various parts of the anatomy. I feel it in the area around my heart while sharing attunement with someone. This is how I know what pitch to tone when I wish to work with sound during a healing session. It is really quite simple and very accurate, as I have discovered, offering a profound influence of sound vibration to facilitate the healing process. The audible music that we compose and play or sing is but a reflection of the inaudible “music” that is always sounding and resounding in sacred tones throughout our bodies. It is what we are. We are music and light flowing like water through cool air and congealing like gelatin in an icy mold. It is all one continuous river of sacred energy vibrating at different levels of frequency making itself visible here and there as it flows through the lattice work of force fields shaping sacred space along lines of force as functional design is given to living flesh.
While focusing the attunement current in the region of the Gonads, I invariably have a deep sense of the sacred nature of this terrain. Here is the very seat of holiness in our sacred anatomy, an altar of worship upon which is sacrificed and sanctified the very finest molecules from the atomic world so that they might make their ascent into the temple of light. One may be compelled, as I am, to sound a sacred “om” with deep, resonant tones. Tender essences surely rise from these holy vessels as pneumaplasmic incense before the throne of God in his living temple.
Spirit of the New Earth
The Spirit of the New Earth operates these sexual and reproductive organs and glands of the Gonads. The two female ovaries and two male testes serve as the pro-generators of eggs and sperm respectively that, when united in the womb, initiate the miraculous process of gestation and development of the embryonic form of a human being. A new earth is created and born into the world in nine months and an angel from out of the realms of light in heaven incarnates to begin its journey here on planet Earth.
