(i) True Spiritual Baptism Introduction
True Spiritual Baptism discusses the spiritual initiation into the 5 levels of consciousness,something more profound than traditional interpretation. First however we will review this traditional viewpoint before forwarding an explanation far deeper than simply wetting the head with water.
To introduce us to the traditional concept of ‘Baptism’ I found an article on the internet which sums up the process:
1. We have turned from the old life of sin to a new life in Jesus Christ.
2. We are publicly identifying with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
3. We are openly joining the ranks of those who believe in Christ.
However, it has been lost that it is not ‘wet water‘ that does the cleansing !
(ii) True Spiritual Baptism and the 5 Stages of Consciousness
We must look again at the 5 stages of consciousness which can be found in a previous article by clicking here but a summary is given below :The Greeks who wrote the Bible were not talking about wet water they were talking about ‘spiritual water’ or the astral plane that is entered into in meditation.
- Earth (physical)
Our physical body and its aura
- Water (Astral)
The baptism into the spiritual waters (sound) inside causes a flood which cleanses away all of the confusion of the mind. The spiritual sound or AUM can be heard as running water.
- Air (mental)
When we go into the air we SEPARATE FROM THOUGHT. It is said that meditation starts when thought stops. Here we are separated from our lower or CARNAL mind. It does not mean we meet Jesus in the air physically:
One example is given below:
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
In the air = beyond thought
- Fire (spiritual)
John The Baptist says about this stage:
Matthew 3: 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
When we are touched by the FIRE this represents spirit. There are various different spiritual fires in both the macrocosm & microcosm, the book below giving a detailed analysis of the Fires of creation:
- New Mind
new mind = our old ideas, habits and doctrines are washed away and replaced with a new understanding based on spiritual truths
(ref: Gaskills Dictionary)
From the verses below we can say that the Bible instructs us NOT to do baptisms in the traditional way:
Hebrews 6: 1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
leaving the principles = what are principles? They are the basic truths relating to our fundamental nature. In this situation the principle is WATER CLEANSES. But if we want to purify our soul then wet water cannot touch the soul, it only affects our physical body (although it has been shown to be emotionally good for us).
So what do we do with this principle of water cleansing the head ? It tells us to leave this principle behind as this is NOT what baptism is meant to be all about. It is not about wetting the exterior of the body, the baptism must work INSIDE OF US.
According to Gaskells Dictionary the water relates to the Astral Plane so does the Astral Plane actually mean ?
“relating to a supposed non-physical realm of existence to which various psychic and paranormal phenomena are ascribed, and in which the physical human body is said to have a counterpart.”
This is the spiritual realm. Therefore baptism traditionally is referring to contacting the non physical realm !
going on to perfection = purification of the soul occurs as we develop awareness of spiritual states inside and sit in the bliss of the spiritual light and sound during meditation. These are the true baptizing energies and have nothing to do with getting the head wet.
In conclusion, it leaves us much to reflect on where religion is at the present moment. Only by having the spiritual waters revealed within are we undergoing the true baptism of what was given to Christ over 2000 years ago by John The Baptist. That same initiation is given by the light and sound meditation groups detailed on this website. It is a spiritual energy which has been and always will be which mirrors our divine nature.
