The time has arrived when we need to clarify certain misconceptions for a better understanding of our Lives and the world around us. This task is not easy at all. The original meanings of the most important words are rapidly fading into the background and if we don’t grab the faintly visible tail, we might be looking at a totally different world where humanity cannot exist any longer.  

What is Esoteric Knowledge?

Esoteric is a Greek word, bearing the meaning of Within, Inner Circle, Near the Core. It refers to the Highest Knowledge within the reach of mankind.

There are certain characteristics in a person that shapes esoteric knowledge and eventually the earthling itself. The most important is curiosity. It might kill the cat, however, it brings incredible value to one’s life. There are ground rules to the way of handling curiosity.

The fashionable approach of comparing must go! Good and bad do not exist, for everything has two poles within. Flaws and merits are only viewpoints. An earthling always gives 100% of their capability at every given moment. Last, but not least, have an open mind where they are part of the whole and the whole exists within them.     

The History and Origin of Esoteric Knowledge

The word goes back to ancient times when prominent Greeks discovered and started to decode and translate Al Khemi – The Matter of Egypt, The Knowledge from The Land of the Black Soil, Khem. The name refers to the fertile land in North Africa along the river Nile.

Greece was a thriving civilisation at the time. However, they were open-minded discoverers, searching for new ways of development. This quest took them over the Mediterranean Sea, to the land of Khem. Greece already had a few settlements, at the utmost Western end of the Nile delta. Moving to the East they found the Great Pyramids of Giza and the nearby Saqqara. Both places but mainly Saqqara, were learning centres that stretched six stories under the ground.

The main curriculums in The School of Mysteries were Mathematics, Physics, Astrology, Healing, and Architecture. These five fundamental areas worked like umbrellas for interrelated fields. Mathematics is still the ground science for esoteric understanding for everything in the universe carries a number. Physics opened up towards the macrocosm. Astrologers carried these two tools to discover the macrocosm, measure stars and planets and understand the interrelation between them and humanity. They were prominent mathematicians, physicists, astronomers, and astrologers, all in one, by today’s standards.

The teaching material used in Saqqara centre was credited to a mystical man by the name of Imhotep. He gained immortality in Egyptian mythology as Thoth.

Imhotep had a detailed account of the interrelations between Earth and the Universe. His mathematical calculations, precise astrological drawings, healing methods and philosophical observations are the flawless account of the Great Matrix of the ever-expanding universe. Many of his great achievements are still with us.

The most prominent is the Saqqara complex itself. Imhotep was a clever man so he understood the frustration of humanity when they face something beyond their comprehension. Since they do not want to think and face questions, they destroy the evidence. Clearing away from the chance of it happening with his teachings, he designed and built them into the centre to withhold the knowledge in the structure itself. Just as an example: in Saqqara, no security was needed to keep away those with dubious intentions. And there was no door either. The opening which still serves as the entrance, was built in such a manner that only those with the right energy structure could go through.

We also have books that came through Greek translation, such as the Book of the Dead and the Kybalion. There are also booklets in circulation in libraries and bookstores. The teachings in this publication are credited to Hermes Trismegistos, as the Greeks referred to Imhotep, honouring his triple greatness as a messenger coming down on Earth to save humanity from the darkness of ignorance. Phrases, such as Hermetic Principles and As Above So Below are also having their renaissance.

The event of discovering The School of Mysteries in Saqqara changed every major scientific approach, primarily for the Greeks, and opened a brand-new field of understanding. The newly acquired knowledge helped great minds such as Pythagoras, Sophocles, Archimedes, Euripides, and Socrates to make historic discoveries in their respective fields.

The knowledge that was collected by Greek scholars was filed and placed in the library in Rhakotis for safekeeping. Ironically, when the place became Alexandria, the place with the whole history of mankind was burnt down by their own ambitious countryman, Alexander the Great.

On their return home, the Greek scholars formed the very first secret society with the pure intention of guarding this knowledge. They called themselves Esoteric, People within the Circle, as opposed to the rest of the population who they referred to as exoterics.

Today, like all the important words have been belittled by the lack of understanding. Someone, who lights a candle could be called Esoteric, also Spiritual, or even Religious. We have choices.

I feel the urge to share a short writing of Imhotep – Hermes Trismegistos, as an aid of clarification.

“If then you do not make yourself equal to God, you cannot apprehend God, for like is known by like. Leap clear of all that is corporeal, and make yourself grow to a like expanse with that greatness which is beyond all measure; rise up above all time and become eternal; then you will apprehend God. Think that for you nothing is impossible; deem that you are too immortal, and that you are able to grasp all things in your thought, to know every craft and every science; find yourself home in the haunts of every living creature; make yourself higher than all heights and lower than all depths; bring together in yourself all opposites of quality: heat and cold, dryness and fluidity; think that you are everywhere at once, on land and at sea, in heaven; thing that you are not yet begotten, that you are in the womb, that you are young, that you are old, that you have died, they you are in the world beyond the grave; grasp in your thoughts all this at once, all times and places, all substances and qualities and magnitudes together; then you can apprehend God. But id you shut up your soul in your body, and abase yourself, and say: “I know nothing, I can do nothing, I am afraid of earth and sea, I cannot mount to heaven; I do not know what I was, nor what I shall be”, then what have you to do with God? For it is the height of Evil not to know God. But to be capable of knowing God, and to wish and hope to know It, is the road which leads straight to the Good……”

Comment: I didn’t want to change the wording; however, it is important to understand that the text was translated by someone from a One-God religious background. Egypt had a multi-God understanding at the time. God in his writings means the creator force. According to AKIA philosophy, the Creator is the first knowledge that was able to multiply by division.

The Significance of Esoteric Knowledge in Personal Growth and Well-Being

As a Transformational Life Coach, Healer and Soul Reader, I can’t achieve lasting results without Esoteric Knowledge. The fact that a human being is a blend of a Soul and the Physical body, provides the essential ground for my work in overcoming emotional trauma for conscious living. When I say a blend, I mean that they cannot be separated. The soul is pure essence and gets into every cell of the physical body.

Let us look at it in practice:

  • Today, earthlings spend a lot of time and money on mindset shift for lasting happiness and fulfillment. They usually start the process by cleansing the past. As far as they are concerned, the past is related to the physical body. However, the physical body doesn’t have a past. And it doesn’t have past lives. Apart from certain genetic codes, it doesn’t take anything from their ancestors. When I am saying genetic codes, I mean physical features and genetically inheritable illnesses. Karma doesn’t belong to any of these categories.
  • The past is only in the picture because it is not finished yet. However, with the past occupying your mind, you cannot have a present. And without present there is no possibility for a future. It will always pull you back until you break free from limited beliefs for happiness.
  • The first step, in any type of self-discovery journey to mental wellness starts by embracing vulnerability on the path and the fact that the soul has duties to cover and experiences to go through. It cannot do it without the help of the physical body. It needs to cultivate emotional intelligence for conscious living by going through experiences navigated by emotional resilience techniques for conscious living aided by daily reminders of the knowledge you carry in your subconscious.
  • Lack of information cultivates fear and frustration. Over time, they turn into depression or stress, very often permanently damaging the body on the way.

My intellectual property AKIA philosophy removes the man-made gap filler from coaching, healing, beliefs, and even history, in order to find the perfect ashlar, the Haya Sophia, the Great Esoteric Knowledge, so earthlings could regain their ultimate freedom, the freedom of thought.
