- The Nine Eyes of Light by Padma Aon Prakasha
- Publisher: North Atlantic Books
- Format: Paperback
Anyone who has any doubt about the current state of modern spirituality has only to look to the apocalyptic millennialism that surrounded the 21-Dec-2012 debacle to understand that, as a movement, it continues to be constrained in its growth and applicability by an increasingly irrelevant, lifeless and inconsequential Judeo-Christian mythos.
In an era when newly unfolding paradigms promote radical evaluations of our ancient history, the global awakening to cosmic consciousness, inter-dimensional physics as well as the continued darkening of our political skies
it is time that we seriously challenged the core metaphysical principles that underpin our desire for personal growth and spiritual development. In short, it is time for us to begin to formulate a more authentic form of spirituality—one that acknowledges the deep-under currents of transformation that are rising from within the depths of our repressed shadows and which one which better serves us in this early part of the 21st century.
In The Nine Eyes of Light, writer, spiritual guide and musician Padma Aon Prakasha offers just that: a well overdue and radical approach to spirituality which is based upon the same metaphysical principles that underpinned the spiritual philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians.
Rather than viewing the human psyche as a single organism, the book identifies nine specific bodies within each of us—every one of which has an equally important role to play in the externalization of an individual’s Soul.
Each chapter of the book explores the increasingly ethereal bodies one by one and explains their core function and meaning as well as revealing their relationship to the other eight.
Along the way, the book’s narrative encompasses a wide range of contemporary subjects, including tantra, the use of sound, the importance of color, personal power and the collective shadow. It embraces Ancient Egyptian philosophy, iconography and terminology but presents them within a contemporary context; thus, providing the reader with an insight into the processes of inner transformation that the Egyptians practised so skillfully.
The Nine Eyes of Light is illustrated throughout and includes references to additional resource material.
The sands of time are being blown off the Egyptian landscape and, as they disappear, they reveal secrets to the initiated of a spiritually-directed, metaphysically-orientated culture that easily surpasses anything we can comprehend—never-mind imagine!
In The Nine Eyes of Light we are at last presented with a glimpse of the significance of the information that the Ancient Egyptians had regarding the ascension process and the reconnection to our stellar heritage.
While the book draws upon very old, pre-Christian, principles, it does illustrate so very clearly that these ideas are, in fact, timeless in both their meaning and application. What they offer us spiritually and metaphysically are as equally applicable to our current generation as it was to theirs—the only difference being that the ceremonies that were used in the ascension process required priests learned in the ways of ritual whilst today we are fortunate in being able to bring about the same results as solo-practitioners. This book is most certainly capable of aiding you in that practice!
The Nine Eyes of Light is over-shadowed by the great cosmic archetype and jackal-headed God Anubis. He was the Lord of the Underworld and as such played an important role in bridging the light and the dark; life and death.
A great deal is spoken about holistic principles in the New Age movement. However, for a complete understanding and appreciation of the immense power, timelessness and universality of the human psyche, it is also equally important to embrace this Shadow or darker side to our natures, both individually and collectively.
The Nine Eyes of Light contains what for me was the most erudite evaluation of the human Shadow as the author places it in its rightful position as a primary body in its own right, with its own rules of engagement to be both understood and obeyed.
Indeed, the author’s description of the raw nakedness and power of not only the Shadow element of the psyche but of several other bodies came as a refreshing antidote to the more usual New Age concepts of self-negation and ill-conceived ego-suppression.
The Nine Eyes of Light was, for me, an utterly gripping and transformative read. From start to finish, it is a continual flow of insight, revelation and exploration. The author has a remarkable writing style. It flows in an almost poetic form at times.
The Nine Eyes of Light was an utter joy to read and is one of the most important occult texts published in modern times. Highly recommended!
