The Self-Healing Archaeous
I wrote the original Rawn's Self-Healing Archaeous article in March of 1997 [the text version of which can be found by clicking here], just as the comet Hale-Bopp was passing through the night sky along with a lunar eclipse, conjunct Mars! Needless to say, it was a powerful moment. ;-) However, it wasn't until October of 2002 that I began recording the audio Lessons. As of early February of 2003, five Lessons have been recorded but there are still two more Lessons to go and eventually a third disk will be issued.
I call this technique an archaeous because it's patterned after an Alchemical work known as the archaeous of water. In this Alchemical work, one takes a volume of water and separates it into its Elements through a process of distillation. Once the parts are separated and purified, they are recombined or re-integrated, resulting in empowered water that has faculties it didn't possess before. The self-healing archaeous follows this same Alchemical pattern of separation, purification and subsequent re-integration, but instead of water, our subject is the three part human body.
Like Bardon, the Archaeous defines three "bodies" which correspond to three "realms": Mental, Astral, and Physical. The healing effects of the Archaeous are achieved through the conscious manipulation of these three bodies, and most especially, through their integration.
Lessons one, two and three, are concerned with the complete awareness of each body and their integration with each of the others. Lesson one with the complete awareness, relaxation and integration of the physical body; lesson two with the complete awareness of the astral body and its conscious integration with the physical body; and, lesson three with the complete awareness of the mental body and its conscious integration with the astral and physical bodies.
Lessons four and five are concerned with the passive separation of these bodies, one from the other, and with their subsequent re-integration. During the period of separation, each body naturally achieves a degree of rest unknown to it by any other means. The archaeous takes full advantage of this healing by-product of their restful solitude.
Lesson Six is concerned with the purification and balancing of each solitary body and the subsequent re-integration of these balanced bodies. This is achieved through the loading of each body with the four Elements in their appropriate regions.
Lesson Seven concerns the use of the Archaeous to achieve Astra-Mental Wandering.
Lesson Eight describes three techniques of Mental Wandering.
Lesson Nine, which is the final Lesson in the series, discusses a higher form of integration -- that of integrated self-expression through your consciously unified and Elementally balanced physical-astral-mental body.
The archaeous is designed to be pursued in conjunction with the work of Initiation Into Hermetics. Lessons one, two and three, which are focused upon integration, are suitable at any of Bardon's Steps.
Lessons four and five however, which are focused upon separation, should only be pursued after the completion of Step Two and the attainment of the rudimentary Elemental balance.
Lesson six, which pertains to manipulation of the Four Elements, should only be pursued after good progress has been achieved with Step Four and the work of accumulating the Elements.
And finally, Lessons seven, eight and nine should not be undertaken until the work of Step Five is begun.
