Your body is your temple

We train our bodies from birth. We learn to walk, talk, use tools and so on. But what about our souls? We never learn about it or what it can do. I find this odd because Jesus said

... 'your body is your temple'...

(I don't have an english bible so it might not be exactly correct wordings)
I take the above teaching of Jesus to mean we should mind not only our bodies but also our souls. But yet the church does not teach us how to mind our souls. Could this be forgotten knowledge?

Then we have asia and american indians who do teach about the soul and what it can do (meditation giving self-control, out-of-body experience like american indians flying above the ground like a bird (or possesing a bird?) and astral projections and so on).

I have by myself learned to meditate (control pain and feelings) and becoming aware when I dream and taking control of my dreams.
But I have not succeeded in out-of-body experiences or astral projection/travel or anything else. I've tried to rise my soul from infancy (the christian world do not teach about the soul... they only talk about it) the last 14 years but have not had further progress beyond the meditation-like control of physical pain and dream control (the latter is not all that useful anymore: as I've grown older I now seldom dream... that I remember).

Any that have any suggestion on what I could do now?

Peace Ghaele

Our physical body IS a temple, no doubt:

Free on-line course here on 'Astral Projection':


That website should answer many of your questions(meditation, the soul, astral plane, etc. etc.).

There are some books there about the traditions of the so-called Native Americans as well(totemism, shamanism, Aztecs, Mayans, Inuit, etc.).

A quote(with possible typos/mistakes):

"The ignorant swine of dialectic materialism criticise totemism, laugh at it without
understanding it. We the Gnostics, understand the grandeur of totemism and know that its
doctrine rests on the basic principles of occultism.

The totemists know the law of reincarnation profoundly, as well as the laws that govern
the evolution of all the living species. They know that Karma is the law of cause and
effect. They know that all that lives is subject to Karma.

The great totemist Initiates have investigated with their clairvoyant powers the intimate
life of all creation, and on these scientific investigations they based the principles of their
doctrine, which principles the ignorant swine of materialism totally ignore.

The totemists know scientifically that every mineral atom is the physical body of an
intelligent elemental.

The totemists know that this mineral elemental evolves until
becoming later the anima of a plant. The animas of vegetables are the vegetable
elementals which Paracelsus knows how to manage to effect his cures. One can provoke
tempests and earthquakes with the help of the vegetable kingdom. We can cure the sick at
a distance with vegetables.

The vegetable elementals are omnipotent since, as they never
fornicate they have developed Kundalini.

The internists know that these vegetable elementals, evolving, later become animal

The great magicians know animal elemental magic and frequently perform
miracles with the animal elementals.

The totemists know that animal elementals, when they are very evolved, then become
human beings. Every well advanced animal elemental reincarnates in a human body.
The totemist priests wisely say that if the human being does evil, he may involute,
regress, to once again become an animal. This is true.

Every perverse human being regresses to the animal state. Often he may reincarnate as an
animal, but then becomes, is transformed into an animal within the astral plane.
Therefore, this affirmation of to totemism is true. It is also very true that perverse people
may actually reincarnate in the bodies of ferocious animals.

There are other cases in which the most pure Soul of a Saint reincarnates into some
species of animal to help it and elevate it to a superior level of consciousness. Therefore,
the principles of totemism are exact.

The totemists profoundly know the law of Karma, and know that the destiny of every
human being is the result of the Karma from past lives.

In the tribes where totemism reigns, traditionally they venerate a particular vegetable or
mineral elemental which they know through direct experience. As a rule, this elemental
has given great service to the tribe. When the totem is a tree, they carve human figures in
the trunk of that species.

Now we have an explanation of all those myths and strange
fables that speak of strange beings, half-man, half-animal, like the centaurs, minotaurs,
sphinx etc.

Those strange images of totemism are true treasure-troves containing
gems of wisdom that are totally unknown to the swine of materialism.
Those pigs of materialism only know how to laugh. Victor Hugo said,

He who laughs at that which he does not know is on the path to becoming an idiot.

In totemism it is forbidden to kill the animal considered totem. This animal has been
anointed from among those of its species, because it fulfils certain secret characteristics
which only clairvoyants can recognise. The wise totemist priests venerate the animal or
vegetable elemental which serves as a vehicle for the Divinity. This creature is much
cared for, and its death is only possible with a very sacred liturgy and several days of
common lamentation. Ignorant "civilised" people do not understand this because they have
divorced them selves from Great Nature. Nevertheless, the totem priests do understand it.

We find traces of totemism in all religious cults. The Hindus vener ate the white cow; the
Chaldeans, the humble lamb; the Egyptians, the ox; the Arabs, the camel; the Inca, the
llama; the Mexicans, the dog and the hummingbird; the Primitive Gnostic Christians wor
shipped the lamb, the fish and the white dove as symbols of the Holy Spirit.
Specific vegetable or animal elementals have always been revered. We have to recognise
that these elemental creatures are omnipotent, because they have not left Eden.

The great vegetable elementals are true Angels who work for all humanity in the etheric
plane or region of the magnetic fields.

The vegetable elementals reproduce by means of Sexual Magic. The sacred copula exists
among the vegetable elementals, and the seed passes to the womb without the necessity
of ejaculating the semen. Each animal is the body of an elemental. Each vegetable is the
physical body of an elemental. These elementals are sacred, and perform miracles in
Eden. The most powerful elementals are venerated by the totem.

When man learns to reproduce without the loss of semen, he enters Eden. There he
knows the elemental creatures of totem. These creatures are innocent.
In themselves animal elementals are innocent. Some waste the semen stupidly, but as the
Divine Spark is still innocent, they are not to be blamed. That spark has still not
reincarnated. It is a creature that still does not have its own self-consciousness; it has not
taken possession of its vehicles, it retains its Fires. Only its shadow, its ego in a potential
state takes bodies.

The vegetable elemental is more pure, more beautiful. They reproduce like the Gods.
Among them exists the Perfect Matrimony.
We also find the Perfect Matrimony among the mineral elementals. They love each other
and reproduce, have children, have their own language and customs. They do not waste
the seminal fluid; they are complete. They possess more perfection than the animal
elementals because unlike the latter, they never waste their seminal fluid. In Eden, the
elementals live happily. Everyone who follows the Path of the Perfect Matrimony, in fact
enters Eden.

Whoever has completely developed the Sacred Fire in fact enters Eden.
The complete development of Kundalini allows us to visit Eden with the etheric body.

Eden is an etheric plane, a region of an intense blue colour where only happiness reigns.
Those who have learned to Love live in Eden.


The Gods exist and Christianity worships them with the names of Angels, Archangels,
Seraphim, Virtues, Thrones etc., etc.
The ignorant swine of materialism believe that man created the Gods of Fire, Air, Water
and Earth out of fear. This concept of the erudite ignoramuses of materialism is totally
false. Soon there will appear a special lens through which we will be able to see the aura,
the astral body, the astral world, the disincarnated egos and the Gods of the astral. Then
all the stupid statements of the erudite ignoramuses will be reduced to dust. The human
being will once again adore and revere the ineffable Gods. They existed even before the
world appeared.


Paracelsus says that we need to harness the elementals of nature to the chariot of science
in order to fly through the air, to ride the Eagle, to walk on water, to travel to the most
distant places on earth in a few moments.
There are elementals that help us with astral travel. Let us remember the elemental of that
tree known in different countries as Borrachero, Angels Trumpet, Flower of the Night.
This elemental can take the human being out in the astral body. It is enough for the
Gnostic student to always have one of these trees in his home. It is necessary to gain the
affection of the elemental of the tree. During the night the Gnostic student concentrates
on the elemental of the tree. He will vocalise the syllable KAM many times and then fall
asleep begging the elemental of the tree to take him from the physical body into the astral
body, to whatever remote part of the world, of the infinite cosmos. The vegetable
elemental will help all those who in truth know how to ask with faith and Love.
This tree is known as Floripondio in Peru; Higanton in Bolivar, Colombia. Many people
triumph with these practices immediately because they are hypersensitive but, on the
other hand there are people who are not hypersensitive. These people need to practise a
great deal to attain victory."

I would get a published copy of "The Perfect Matrimony", as to avoid mistakes that are so common to PDF files of which I copy/pasted that from.....

[quote But what about our souls? We never learn about it or what it can do. I find this odd because Jesus said

... 'your body is your temple'...

God will breathe life (soul) into our bodies at the moment of conception.

And the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will come and dwell within us.

And yes, we do prepare the soul by training our bodies, not just to walk and talk but by obeying the 10 commandments of God.

By many methods of meditation we can come closer to the Lord. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is one wonderful meditation.

Just a few verses on the Holy Spirit from the NKJ version.

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit,which are Gods. 1 corinthians 6:19,20.

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. 1 corinthians 3:16,17.

And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will over shadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God." Luke 1:35.

When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. ACTS 19:5,6.

In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Ephesians 1:13,14.

for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:21

I did notice and thank you for posting that. But... I thought rosebeforetime did an excellent job of summarizing the information in a way that tied in with the post.
