The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar

“Soul mates are brought together for a reason. All their lives they have been preparing for each other. When they look back at their lives they will see a new purpose to actions they have taken. Their lives take on a sense of oneness equalled by no other. Oneness of purpose, ambition, and love which can be a beacon to others along their spiritual paths.” Edgar Cayce

So much of this teaching has been hidden for so long. The word ‘occult’ means ‘hidden’. This teaching was only revealed to a few chosen initiates when it was part of the Mystery teachings, going back to at least 1900 BC. After that, for the past 2,000 years, it has been hidden by a church that has even forgotten it has hidden it, let alone which Vatican vault it’s buried in.

But our ancestors understood this teaching about how to use sexual energies in a sacred way, and we are now piecing together what they knew.

We know about it in two ways.

We know about it through the few of scraps of knowledge that have managed to survive in the ancient texts from the Egyptian, Celtic, Indian, Tibetan and Taoist spiritual traditions. Because, make no mistake, the love in this Indian Vedic image of Vishnu and Lakshmi is not the Greek ‘agape’, but ‘eros’ — or a rose by any other name. There is a reason that Lakshmi is sitting at Vishnu’s feet. It is the same reason why Mary Magdelene uses her hair to dry Jesus’s feet. This is an erotic act.

But really, none of those scraps of scriptural instructions have provided nearly enough information for us to completely resurrect these sacred sexual practises. And so a very few shamans like myself are being taught it from scratch by their spirit guides while in the shamanic state.

My spirits started teaching me this way before I found the texts to explain, in terms that I could understand, exactly what was going on, and so it was very confusing at first. I really didn’t know even whether I was doing the right thing. But they gradually started to lead to me and strew the right texts across my path, to teach me the true meanings of the metaphors and allegories, and they taught me how to understand what I was practising. So I can explain it in simple terms to you. And I can state, quite categorically, that this isn’t just a nice idea or a belief system or a matter of faith. This is a very specific practical application of a spiritual teaching and it works.

Never-ending life

Anyway, just to keep things as simple as possible, I’m going to be sticking to one teaching tradition: the Egyptian teachings, which are known as the Alchemies of Horus and the Sex Rites of Isis. But whichever tradition they were from, all taught the same thing in similar ways, and here is the essence of the teaching.

First of all, think of an explosion of energies — like, say, a bomb.

Now think of that energy being turned inwards — in other words, an implosion of energies.

When a man ejaculates his sperm outwards, in that moment of love, beauty, magic and alchemy, a baby is created. In that explosion or sperm bomb, life on earth is created.

Now think of turning all that creativity and love and beauty inwards. In that implosion, a fractal process of negative numbers of particles takes place. Remember, according to Mandelbrot’s theorem, which is what informs fractal theory, a negative plus a negative equals a plus. And so the plus that is created out of all that imploded love, beauty, magic and alchemy is never-ending life, eternity or infinity.

Inner alchemy
This imploding of energies is achieved by the practice of inner alchemy. By turning the sexual energies inwards, nectars which are already present, but that have been laying dormant in the body, are released or secreted. When this happens, the practitioner goes into spiritual ecstasy – it is an incredible, wonderful feeling that is indescribable. But apart from the pleasure generated, by releasing these nectars into our bodies, we energise and build our magnetic ‘ka’ bodies.

The ‘ka’ body is the magnetic body that surrounds the physical human sheath. These ‘ka’ bodies are what power and give life to our physical human sheaths ….and thus by powering our ‘ka’ bodies, we can live for hundreds of years in other dimensions. When the physical sheath dies, we just step out of it, like shrugging off an old overcoat, and step into our ‘ka’ bodies.

Three great religious/sacred spiritual centres are named after the ‘ka’ body, because these, or similar, sex rites took place in them. The Egyptian temple at Karnak, the Indian temple at Konark and the French megaliths at Carnac.

And what powers the ‘ka’ body is the ‘ba’ body, otherwise known as the soul. By powering the ‘ba’ body, we can have immortality or eternal life, in other dimensions. But that is Step Two, and so we’ll leave that for later on.

But all of this is the true meaning of the chalice, the Holy Grael, the cup that overflow’eth, the Lily and the Rose, the Land of Milk and Honey, the Promised Land and Life Everlasting.

FURTHER READING
There is only one book that I would recommend on the subject of sex magic. It is The Magdalen Manuscript by Tom Kenyon and I recommend it wholeheartedly. It is available to buy in the Alchemy and Magic section of the Ishtar’s Gate Library.

For the next instalment, go to Part II: The Hara Line and the Aura

    This is a beautiful starting point to a wondrous path. I have followed a similar journey over the past thirteen years that even led me to building a home in Egypt which I visit as often as possible. Although I may not have spent my time with such dedicated focus as many who will visit this place, some personally enlightening thoughts on the subject have come my way. Initially these thoughts manifested themselves in the form of grave doubts as to the time line so often attached to this secret knowledge – and secret for a reason. It seems these musings are hardly original, but begin something like this.

    Nobody would argue (least of all the Christians) that their adopted symbol for the past 2000yrs has been the fish, though they may be reluctant to acknowledge its connection to the Pisces of the Zodiac – all dominant religions have adopted the zodiac sign prevalent to their time as ordained by the precession of the Earth’s axis through the astrological chart. Thus the sphynxs of Luxor have the head and body of a ram, 2000yrs previously the Minoans had the Bull of Taurus etc etc. Although the Sphynx of Giza has the graffitied head of a pharoah, the body is undoubtedly a lion, placing the likely age of the original construction between 6 – 8000BC; substantially earlier than the mainstream Egyptologists dating of the sphynx.

    If the dominant religion of our own Age has forgotten its true meaning (and very few would EVER have known the real truth) in two thousand years, then why would we expect any difference for those that went before – even if they shared a common root. When the truth was lost, it becomes replaced with a farcical and literal interpretation of the story that was never meant to be anything other than a memorable framework from which to hang the secret.

    Start to question now whether the pyramids are extraordinary lavish tombs, or spiritual centres where the chosen would choose to be buried ……. Newgrange in Ireland may help with this paradigm shift in thought ~ a construction that is dated at over 5000 BC but whose influence and supporting knowledge could conceivably have come from Egypt. If you ever bought an authentic cushion in Egypt and compared it to local Celtic designs in Ireland, you would be incredulous as to what your eyes were showing you.

    Brilliant post- it is so easy to forget that sex is such a beauty, such a power. Ishtar Herself is the Lady of Sex (amongst other things), and teaches us to revel in the passion she instills in our hearts.

    I wrote a poem about this on http://thegeishahouse.com entitled ‘prayer to Ishtar’, if you’re interested :)

    But yes, I find it so sad that the pseudo-theocratical society of today denounces sex as vile and dirty, when it is in fact celebratory of our own divinity, and that of the gods, by its very nature. BB.x
