(Concluded from Part 1.)
Please allow me to give you my interpretation of the Vesica Piscis. However it may be of interest more to students of cross-cultural spirituality than to other readers. It’s alright with me if you skip to the asterisks.
I see it as a kind of mandella or yantra, which, if meditated upon, prepares us for a mystical experience.
The particular mystical experience it prepares us for is, I believe, the first sight and experience of the Divine Child that we all are – a discrete brilliant light housed in the Vesica Piscis Mandella in the heart.
Says Archangel Michael of it: “The Vesica Piscis Mandala … contains the White Fire, Sacred Seed Atom–your own personal Divine Facet of our Father/Mother God.” (1)
Seeing it comes when the kundalini reaches the fourth or heart chakra.
The experience is often called seeing the Light, glimpsing the Self, setting out on the way, etc. Hindus call it spiritual awakening and Buddhists, steam-entering.
I think what the Vesica Piscis itself represents is what Hindus call the hridayam, the aperture which remains closed except in Brahmajnana (2) or Sahaja Samadhi. (3) When we speak of a “heart opening,” we’re referring to an opening of the hridayam or, in my interpretation, the Vesica Piscis.
Subsequent to writing this, I had a personal reading with Archangel Michael and asked him if the hridayam and the vesica piscis mandella were the same. He said they were not. I’ll be posting that discussion in an article Sunday.
I think that what we’re looking at when we look upon the elaborated Vesica is a graphic representation of its state at the moment of fourth-chakra enlightenment. If I’m right, this is the moment of the opening of the hridayam.
When we actually see the Self or Light, its brilliance would probably prevent us from seeing the unfolded Vesica or hridayam, which I imagine would look like a flower in full bloom.
I said some time ago that natural objects and processes are often constructed in a way that sheds light on the nature of the Trinity. (4) Natural procreation mirrors spiritual procreation. The trees shedding their leaves and not dying mirrors the soul shedding its bodies and not dying. Cell division mirrors the division of the Divine into Mother and Father. It also mirrors the creation of twin flames, which themselves also mirror the relationship of Mother and Father.
Our common task in life is to realize who we are at essence and that involves first knowing our nature as the Child, then as the Mother, and finally as the Father. We do this by scaling Jacob’s ladder of consciousness, having realizations along the way.

Following the Blood Moon Equinox, I find that all thoughts of limitations are gone. I feel freed up to study any subject I’d like. And there are so many subjects to study that help us accomplish the purpose of life.
In this case, the study of Sacred geometry tells us something valuable about enlightenment itself or about the relationships prevailing among the Trinity, which are the three powers we must realize to know our true essence.
We’re tasked with knowing who we are at the deepest level. To do that we first must know the Self, Christ or Atman; then the Mother, Shakti, or Holy Spirit; and finally the Father, Brahman, or, at a much higher level of Reality, the One.
Of course what we regarded decades ago as “full” enlightenment is now seen as nowhere near the end of the road. Brahmajnana, knowledge of the transcendent Father, does not even bring liberation, Sahaja Samadhi does. But even that, it turns out, is only liberation from birth and death and birth and death only characterize the Third and Fourth Dimensions. Therefore liberation is itself only Ascension to the Fifth Dimension.
Right away one sees that there are seven more dimensions to go. Hilarion describes what happens when all dimensions have been traversed:
“When after ages of struggle and many victories the final battle is won, the final secret demanded, then you are prepared for a further path. When the final secret of this great lesson is told, in it is opened the mystery of the new way — a path which leads out of all human experience, and which is utterly beyond human perception or imagination.” (5)
Now I feel a pull to go back to contemplating these wonderful images and shapes. So far I’ve studied only one and what a creative explosion that has been.

(2) Brahmajnana or God Realization happens when the kundalini reaches the seventh chakra. It’s a temporary heart opening. This is not liberation. It will happen for us some time after we enter the Fifth Dimension, not immediately upon entry.
(3) If I understand the matter correctly, Sahaja Samadhi happens when the kundalini travels from the seventh chakra along the Atma Nadi to the spiritual heart. Its movement results in a permanent heart opening and liberation. This to me is Ascension proper. It happens some time after we pass into the Fifth Dimension and after we experience Brahmajnana.
The corollary is that we can exist for some time in the Fifth Dimension before experiencing liberation. This is not unusual and reflects the fact that all dimensions have subplanes. Liberation occurs some subplanes past simple entry into what I call the “vestibule” of the Fifth Dimension. I believe it’s the vestibule or first subplane of the Fifth Dimension that I appear to go in and out of these days.
I think the Atma Nadi is what Archangel Michael through Ronna called our “Rod of Light” or “Rod of Power”:
“The Sacred Heart itself is located a little higher than the physical heart, and is positioned toward the back of the body, resting against our Rod of Light, which runs along the spinal column. This Rod of Power is gradually activated as we open the Seven Seals to Higher Consciousness and connect with the OverSoul/Higher Self that resides in the Eighth Chakra, our Soul Star.” (“Archangel Michael: “The Searchlight of the Soul: Your Twelve Ray Creator Wheel,” transmitted Through Ronna Herman, LM-11-2015, at http://www.ronnastar.com/messages-aam/.)
Of the Atma Nadi, Sri Ramana says:
“Even as subtle forces like the electric current pass through visible wires, the light of awareness flows through a nadi [nerve] in the body.
“When the effulgent light of awareness shines in atma nadi alone, nothing else shines except the Self.
“Anything that appears before (such a jnani [sage]) has no separate existence. He knows the Self clearly as the ignorant one his body.” (Sri Ramana Maharshi inVasistha Ganapathi, ed., Sri Ramana Gita. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanashramam, 1977, 54.)
Note that the Atma Nadi is not the Self, which is located in the Vesica Piscis Mandella in the spiritual heart.
