Seven Glands for Seven Spirits, Part 5: The Blessings of the Pancreas, page 2

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” (Malachi 3:10)       __________________________________________________________

This quote from Malachi above is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I don’t know why. It just resonates inside. In a certain way it says that when you give your all into what you do, you will realize the greatest blessing in return, which is what I want this post to be about: being the greatest possible blessing to one’s world.

 We’ve been talking about the pancreas  and we’ve seen how this organ-gland provides a twofold blessing to the body’s digestive and energy systems.  In this post I would like to spend some additional time with the spiritual, or vibrational, aspect of the pancreas as a sacred center for the indwelling of the Spirit of Blessing. Here is the fifth verse of my poem “The Seven Spirits of God”

I am the Spirit of Blessing

I uplift the elements of my world through my Creative Process

So they might become part of my body

I provide realization for my world

THE CAPACITY TO KNOW AND EXPRESS SPIRIT

We are not just incarnate in these physical bodies.  They provide us with specific vibrational pathways for the expression of our creative juices and the delivery of our gifts of spirit.

The sacred endocrine center of the pancreas provides us with the capacity for spiritual expression, an experience of Third Plane Being. From this plane, our hearts, empowered by our feeling realm, rise to give us the capacity to discern and express spiritual essences, such as joy, thankfulness, praise, forgiveness and enthusiasm. Here spiritual things are spiritually discerned. This includes the awareness of the presence of spirit, specifically one’s own presence as a spirit being—an angel, in other words. The spiritual substance generated at this sacred site is fine enough to rise up and begin providing a medium for the transmission of the radiant emanations of spirit from Fourth Plane Being, where the One I Am stands in the midst of the “Seven Golden Candlesticks” described by John in the Book of Revelation:

 And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (Rev. 1: 12-16)

In Sacred Anatomy I go into profound detail correlating this description of the One standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks with the seven endocrine glands and the “seven spirits before the throne of God,” which John also saw in his ecstatic vision.  Reading this passage sowed the seed of inspiration that led to my writing this meditative journey through the physical body’s sacred anatomy. 

A SPIRIT OF BLESSING

The pancreas provides us with a window through which we may pour out a spirit of blessing into our worlds by making possible the realization of creative ideas and intentions.  It’s a matter of putting our whole heart and desire into our dreams or intentions with deep feeling and assurance—not that our dreams will be realized but that the are already realized. John describes these spirits as “angels” and the seven seals as “churches,” meaning they are sacred and therefore to be used by the angel for creative purposes.  The spirit of this hormonal center empowers the realizations of creative ideas, just as its enzymes and hormones empower the release of energy from the foods we consume.  The pancreas is a power center very intimately associated with the solar plexus.

These seven glands are seals by virtue of the awful power they have the potential of releasing when opened.  Their chemistry, when released, can bring about blessing or cursing, depending on the quality and nature of the spirit we express through them. The spirit of cursing is the shadow side of the spirit of blessing.  If maintained for a length of time, it has the potential of releasing outbursts of destructive energy, such as anger, into our field of creation, as well as the “plague” of diabetes into our body temple.  Chronic complaint and anger are harsh vibrations that destroy the delicate cells of the pancreas that produce insulin for blood sugar management.  On the other hand, as  we maintain an attitude of gratitude and joy, the Spirit of Blessing can deliver its gift of uplifting energy and health. 

The realization of spiritual seeds sown in love is the gift of the angel of this church.  With realization comes awareness that I am a creator being, an angel incarnate, one with the One standing in the midst. I am the blessing being poured out through my window of heaven into the world. Being still and lifting my heart and mind heavenward, I may come to know that I am an aspect of the One Great Spirit of God, which has need of nothing. Therefore, all things necessary for my presence and service on Earth are provided by my Father in heaven whose unconditional and irresistible love draws into my temple the substance of the Great Mother of Creation to provide “meat in mine house”—flesh and form for all that I shall ever need to live a creative and fruitful life. All that is needed is already present with me now and will manifest as needed . . . in abundance. 

BALANCING SACRED ENERGY

When I contemplate the form and function of the body-temple and all its intricate and interacting parts, knowing that here before me and with me is a manifestation of a heavenly design which is perfect, of the very principles and laws that govern all of Creation, I begin to see, with the eyes of my heart, replicating patterns of both structure and function within and all around me in the natural world.

A beautiful example of this type of contemplative visioning can be known studying the manner in which energy is held in a state of balance by various mechanisms of checks and balances for efficient and effective creativity. In my last post we considered the balancing of energy harvested from the foods we take into our bodies, a function of hormones secreted by the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas.  We saw how there are at least three types of these islet cells. Beta cells, the most common type, produce insulin to regulate blood glucose. Alpha cells produce an opposing hormone, glucagon, which releases glucose from the liver and fatty acids from fat tissue; these favor insulin-release and inhibit glucagon secretion. Delta cells produce somatostatin, which inhibits insulin and glucagon secretion. Then there are small numbers of F cells which  secrete a pancreatic polypeptide, which slows down nutrient absorption.  So we can see there are a number of chemicals and hormones produced in the pancreas that check and balance one another.

MASCULINE AND FEMININE ENERGIES

All energies, of course, originate in the One Source and are initially divided into the duality of the masculine and feminine, possessing positive and negative charges. They all start out as one radiant current of love.  They then divide into two sacred forces that are designed to work together creatively so long as they are balanced.

The balancing of sacred energy, both in the individual body and in the collective body of mankind, is accomplished by bringing the masculine and feminine energies into a place of accord where they work together in a spirit of love and cooperation. The feminine energy of the heart realm brings a nurturing sweetness into the mix, along with intuitive insight and deep feeling and passion for empowering the creative process. The masculine energy is more mental and brings such elements as logic and reason, along with mental calmness for clear and positive thought and action.

Imbalance occurs when either one of them becomes overly dominant and controlling. For example, should the masculine seek to dominate and control the feminine, she is shut down and withdraws her sweetness and empowerment.  Or should the feminine energy be in reactive turmoil over external events, her empowering energies are dissipated outward, leaving nothing with which the masculine energy can blend, or partner and dance, in co-creative ventures. The energy level quickly drops in a relationship. It drops in the individual, as well, and in the collective body of mankind, by reason of the same dynamics at work between the masculine and the feminine energies.  

This happens when we suppress our feelings and allow our goal-driven minds to control our expression and action, never minding important feedback our gut feelings may be giving us.  It happens when our feelings are upset and cloud our thinking and vision. It happens when the achieving spirit of competition allows no room for the heart to explore its intuitive sensing that arises from simply being present and available to the impulse of spirit and pure spontaneity.  It happens when the feminine uses her seductive wiles to lure the masculine away from his mission and purpose, but only if he can be so seduced. It happens in patriarchal systems of above-down government based in fear that substitute governance by love from within in a more natural system of partnership and co-creation.   

As these two sacred energies are brought together in a state of balance and harmony, a beautiful song of blessing is poured out of heaven into the world. 

If you would like to pursue this meditation further and in depth, then I recommend your send for a copy of my book, Sacred Anatomy.  The hyperlink will take you to ordering information. This concludes our consideration of the pancreas as a center for sacred energy in the body temple. Our next consideration will be of the adrenal glands as powerful centers for the Spirit of the Single Eye.  Until then, be a blessing and heal your world.

Seven Glands for Seven Spirits — Part 1: The Pineal for the Spirit of Love

Life flows from above, down, inside, out, like this cool, clear mountain stream.

There have been so many visits to my last post, Musical Hormone Chemistry, that I am moved to expand the consideration a bit and look deeper into the essences behind hormonal activity.  I want to dwell for the length of several posts on the spiritual vibrations that generate the essences of hormones along with their functions in the body temple.  These next seven posts will be in large part inspired writing.  Let’s see where the inspiration leads, starting with the known and opening to what is yet unknown waiting to be known and experienced.

We know there are seven ductless endocrine glands in the body that produce and secrete a plethora of hormonal crystals.  We also know that these crystals of hormones move tissue cells and organic physiology in an harmonious collaboration carrying out the various functional activities in our temples of flesh, sinew, blood and bone.  The result is a symphony of life performed in a body that is fit for a God Being to incarnate from out of the Realms of Light and into the dark, wet world of protoplasm.  How this happens is a miracle best allowed to remain a sacred mystery.  (The mind doesn’t need to know everything.)

THE TRUTH OF LIFE IS ONENESS

We also know that life is one infinite and eternal Essence shared by all living forms.  One breath of shared air ebbing and flowing through gills, lungs and whatever other faculties the myriad types of creatures on the planet have been endowed with by the Creator to breathe the breath of life.  We are drawn together under this one common denominator: we breathe the same breath of life.  What is it that draws us together so?  “Is it love?” John Denver sings.  Love, the irresistible, compelling, magnetic Force that draws all Creation together to breathe as one cohesive whole.  The truth of life is oneness.  Yes, it is love, John. 

A poem came through my heart and pen back when I was writing Sacred Anatomya meditative journey through the body temple.  Sharing it now may open portals of awareness to what’s unknown. It’s titled “The Seven Spirits of Love.”  I will take one verse at a time and see what more is revealed.

THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF LOVE

I am the spirit of love.

I draw my world together as a playing field for my creativity.

I and my  world are one.  

I seed and father the life of my world.

Seeding is a garden activity.  A gardener sows seeds to grow life forms—plants, flowers, fruit—in fertile soil.  So does Love seed the field of consciousness that brings forth living forms, each in its own season.  This Sower is a Musician and the seed sown by Love is a vibration, a Tone that sets in motion a myriad of overtones and harmonics that reverberate throughout the hallowed chambers of the temple. It all starts at the highest level in the inner sanctum where a seat has been set for the Gardener to sit upon and tend his garden.

THE PINEAL BODY 

The Pineal Body

In our body temples, that seat is the throne of the Pineal Body.  From this throne, the Master Gardener sows one seed that will bring forth life as a symphony of light and sound in the temple.  That seed is the Word of life sent forth as a Tone laying the spiritual and physical foundations of our earthen temple from the beginning, using but two half-cells, a female ovum and a male sperm–two in agreement with love–to initiate the creative process that will bring forth a child from the womb in nine months . . . and the Word is thus made flesh.

How did we get from the Pineal Body in the center of the cranium all the way down  into the generative juices of the Gonads in the pelvis?   Well, the Tone of love sounds loud and clear all the way from top to bottom, from beginning to new beginning—there’s no end with eternal life—and it’s all about rhythm and harmonic overtones and undertones.  It’s also about melody and phrasing, songs within songs and cycles within cycles.  Ezekiel saw it as “wheels within wheels” in his vision of the Creative Process.

CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS

Rhythm.  Circadian rhythms are a pineal function directed by way of the hormone known as Melatonin, made from converted Seratonin in this mysterious gland positioned within the inner sanctum of the temple between the two winglike lobes of the cerebellum.  These lobes are reminiscent of the two angels atop the Biblical Ark of the Covenant with wings outstretched and hovering over the “mercy seat” situated between them at the exact point where their eyes meet as they gaze eternally into one another’s eyes.  Ever do that with another incarnate angel?  Look into his/her eyes for a while? Not just a glance, but a peer. It’s pure light as of a fire burning on a double-edged sword that burns and soothes at the same time, hot at its outer edges but cool blue at its central flame with the distinct qualities of compassion and mercy.  Mercy and compassion are predominant qualities of the Spirit of Love seated within the Pineal Body.

We’re talking about rhythm and yet find ourselves talking about eyes and fire and wings hovering over the inner sanctum where a throne is set in the heaven of this body temple for the Spirit of Love to sit and direct the symphony of life.  The rhythm of cycles—the sleep and waking cycle, the appetite cycle, the digestive and elimination cycles, the breathing cycle, the heart-beat cycle, the menstrual cycle.  Cycles within cycles timed to blend with overlapping precision and impeccable accuracy.

Circadian rhyhms (from the Latin circa, around or about, and diem, day) set our daily cycles in motion from the time we go to sleep to the time we awake and coordinate and synchronize our biological clock with the rhythm of the Earth’s rotation around the Sun.  Night follows day and day night.  As in Genesis, evening and morning comprise the duration of a day.

But we’re not the only living beings with pineal glands.  Whales have large pineal glands to help them navigate the deep oceans of the Earth and adjust to the conditions of the environment. Those that live close to the equator have smaller pineals than those who live closer to the two poles where climate conditions are colder and more challenging.  All vertebrate animals have pineal glands to keep them in sync with the daily and seasonal cycles constantly on the move around and about the planet.  All life forms, for that matter, have ways of knowing the rhythm of cycles and the “ordinances of heaven” and how to “set the dominion thereof in the earth,” to borrow a line from the Book of Job.  Consider only the migrating ducks and geese and the tiny humming bird.

Speaking of seasons and cycles, consider this:

 God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs:

For example: the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; those of the canary in 14 days; those of the barnyard hen in 21 days. The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; those of the mallard in 35 days. The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week and of colors in the rainbow!)

God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily.

The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation!

God’s wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind. Each orange has an even number of segments. Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.

Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number.

The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.

All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord specified thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed!

The lives of each of you may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if you will only entrust Him with your life. If you try to regulate your own life, it will only be a mess and a failure. Only the One Who made the brain and the heart can successfully guide them to a profitable end.

Love has a way of keeping its creative playing field together in a breathing mass of oneness.  All things are connected.  It’s just the nature of the Spirit of Love. 

YET UNKNOWN ALCHEMY

Much has been written about the Pineal Body, or gland, and its relationship to the “Third Eye,” having vestigial retinal tissue as part of its physical makeup. We know little about the potential of its chemistry in expanding consciousness to peer into and perhaps even visit other dimensions and higher levels of being.  There is an alchemy that would release untold powers of transmutation at this seventh level of being in the body temple.  “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard . . . .”  Speculations abound in books and on websites.  But they are only imaginings of the mind.  As I said earlier, the mind doesn’t need to know everything. The heart, on the other hand, understands the essences of the world of spirit.  Purified by utter love of God, the heart sees and understands God.  It is in the purified heart where the mystery of God is finished on Earth and the Pineal Body is renewed to work its magic of transmutation.  That day is come as we enter the new era of a Golden Age. 

We speak of our bodies as temples.  But I see the entire planet Earth as a Cathedral where God is present, with Man, male and female together, providing the tabernacle for God’s presence on Earth. This will be the theme of my next post when we will consider the Pituitary gland, along with the second verse of my poem and the Spirit of the Womb. Until then. . . 

Here’s to your health and healing!
