Hieros Gamos ~ Sacred Marriage

The Hieros Gamos ~ Sacred Marriage between Beloveds *Few things are less understood than the hieros gamos – the “sacred marriage”. Considered to be the “Holy Grail” of sexual rituals, is it within reach of comprehension and explanation?* ~Philip Coppens ——————————  One of the most intriguing, nebulous and controversial topics of history and magic is the “hieros gamos”, “the sacred marriage”. Believed to incorporate both sex and ritual, it should not come as a surprise that throughout history, it has attracted many – and often, those who should truly well stay clear of it. Its fame has meant that the theme was used by Dan Brown in “The Da Vinci Code”, where he described it as how “man could achieve a climactic instant when his mind went totally blank and he could see God”. Brown is not the only one who has linked the experience with tantrism and the withholding of orgasm. He is, of course, also the man who considered Mary Magdalene’s vulva to be the Holy Grail. The quest to define the hieros gamos foremost is one of answering the question who and when it was performed. Some – including Dan Brown it to temple prostitution, while others see it as the king of the country who marries “the land” – in the form of a high priestess – to rejuvenate it. For the Greeks, it was more abstract. They considered it a marriage between the gods and hence apparently outside of the reach of ordinary human beings. It was only in the Jewish and medieval tradition that the hieros gamos became linked with magic and ritual and it is therefore here that we find the current obsession with it. As such, in 1605, Cesare della Riviera wrote that “in Europe, the tracks of these ancient rituals pass through the Gnostic schools, the alchemical and cabalistic currents of the Middle Ages and Renaissance – where numerous alchemical texts can be read on two levels.” What is the hieros gamos? At its core, the sacred marriage is more of a sacrament than a ritual. It is a marriage between husband and wife, but is of a sacred nature: it is a marriage blessed by the gods, with active participation of those deities, present in the act of lovemaking between the two humans. Focusing on the king having sexual intercourse with the high priestess is thus largely a misnomer, as the king was equally a high priest, and the queen… a high priestess. In the 20th century, Carl Gustav Jung studied the hieros gamos through the Rosarium Philosophorum, a series of twenty woodcuts, printed in Frankfurt in 1550. The...

Spiritual Marriage of Twin Flames Includes Soul Mates: The Union and Balance of ALL

Here is an MP3 to listen to most of what is written below ~ I encourage you to listen to it before and/or after but definitely listen to it, for the vibrations that come through in my voice are so powerful in themselves. Spiritual Marriage of Twin Flames in Extension to the World and With Our Soul Mates ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Spiritual marriage is one of the Spirit ~ our spirits are the life force that flows through us. It is our essence which is not limited by form. This essence is eternal and always experiencing, creating, loving with our bodies. Our spiritual presence is not tainted with any beliefs or constructs we may follow. Our spiritual being is pure, divine, unconditional, sweet love. A spiritual marriage is one where the life forces (spirits) of both twin flames are merged. Since Spirit always has been, IS, and always will BE (always present in union/oneness), the spirits of both twins are already married. Twin flames do not have to be together physically for them to be in spiritual marriage for they are already in it. If a twin flame is in human marriage with a soul mate, they are still spiritually in union (as it always IS) with the twin flame. This is why I always express that love shared is love shared with all. Love of Spirit is all inclusive. Think of a plant that needs water to breathe yet this plant is made up of water. Now think of it never getting “enough” or too much of that water ~ envision it having a limitless, truly infinite capacity to receive more of what it is. This is how we are, our true, divine spiritual energy flows with this infinity of love for it is LOVE. There are no exceptions, there is just total acceptance and openness to receive this love. Human marriages ~ even how we have perceived our humanness ~ has been clouded with restrictions, limitations and fear that we have created responses and behaviors which can bring us into the experience of separation with each other. If we focus and see the love/union, separation on all levels cannot exist. Our perceptions and creations of and within human marriage have been “boxed in,” as we attempt to create in this box without realizing that we are the ones who have placed ourselves within it and therefore, we are the ones to bring us ALL out of it. Human marriage is meant to be the joining of 2 as 1 with God in the middle. Hence there are 3, all creation comes from this Trinity. Now, the difference here with...

Spiritual Marriage of Twin Flames

You are already spiritually married with your twin flame, as you are already one with your twin flame. However, your spirit is within the journey of this human experience, and therefore, you are experiencing the joining of your spirits as one in form. You are experiencing the oneness that is and deeply feeling it on all levels. Some call this the Dance of the Spirits…the journey is always ongoing and the dance is always in motion, integrating and co-creating in each moment through your emotions (energy in motion). As you dive in to the depths of your essence within you, you discover the divine love that IS you, which of course is also your twin flame, for you are one. As you uncover the beauty and unconditional, purity of this love, you are inspired (in spirit ~ in love) to become a living vessel of sharing and expressing this love. This is the process of experiencing the spiritual marriage with your twin flame ~ within and then around~. For more in depth sharing on this, read this article, Spiritual Marriage of Twin Flames Includes Soul Mates: The Union and Balance of ALL Lots of love, Gabriella...
