Temples of Initiation

LONG before the digital age, before computers, smart phones and social media were vogue, ancients sages had wirelessly transmitted secrets to their disciples.

They introduced to them to the invisible realms of nature and mind, unknown to the general public.

That realm of nature served and still serves as a living psychic interface between man’s consciousness and living forces of spiritual influence.

That same knowledge was revealed to the world by Mother of the New Age H. P. Blavatsky in her first major work — Isis Unveiled: A Master Key to the Mysteries of Ancient and Modern Science and Theology — a work begun in 1875 with the founding of the Theosophical Society in New York City.

The first 1,000 copies of Isis Unveiled were sold in 10 days, and received numerous favorable reviews. The New York Herald called it “one of the remarkable productions of the century,” while The New York Independent said “The appearance of erudition is stupendous.”

The Egyptian goddess Isis is the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. Originally Issa, the goddess Virgin-Mother, personified nature, according to The Theosophical Glossary, in Egyptian or Koptic Uasari, the female reflection of Uasar or Osiris. She is the “woman clothed with the sun” of the land of Chemi [Egypt].

Isis commanded unseen entities of immense influence. It was an invisible world of nature not copyrighted by Microsoft or Intel, a knowledge first transmitted by Nature’s hidden all-wise spiritual overseers, encoded with evolutionary blueprints for the advancement of spiritual humanity.

The invisible entities, called “elementals” or “elementaries” in modern Theosophy, are  orbs of influence in the sense that they attach to thoughts and emotions. They preserve hidden patterns of intention secreting them upon persons to whom they become unknowingly attached.

They are the preservers and deliverers of Karma. Many have experienced an unmistakable sense of prior knowing a certain person or place—though the encounter is seemingly, in this life,  for “the first time.” The déjà vu occurs probably with a push from those unseen entities.

Orbs or elemental entities are attracted by, reflect, and preserve many fields of information it is taught. They naturally reflect the  influences, beneficent or maleficent, of persons, places and things. Similar perhaps to the Greek entities called Muses, goddesses of inspiration in literature, science and the arts, who must have commanded those nature forces to accomplished their ends.

 Similarly, “sacred space” and “spirit of place” are ideas that, for man, refer to a lingering spiritual resonance of certain locations. 


What is ‘Sacred’?

Certain places are called “sacred” likely because of the presence of congeries of invisible entities, and the vibrations they transmit. There appears to be a corresponding subtle part of the nature of animals and humans that can “sense” these energies.Young children and pets are often observed staring into what we only can see as empty space.

In the case of music such influences can be evoked by such Sixties’ hits as The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations,” or the damaging energies of hard rock that have been shown to destroy living plants.

Altered States

“When Russian scientists measured the brainwaves of people inside Gothic cathedrals and Egyptian pyramids,” notes metaphysical researcher Freddy Silva, “they noticed how the surrounding environment created a force which stimulated brainwaves 4000% above normal waking state.”


“Similar experiments at Delphi and Stonehenge,” Silva reports, “showed how the frequency of these sacred environments is approximately 7.8 Hz: the frequency of the human brain in a state of receptivity, the kind of state enjoyed by psychics and healers when they are at work.”

Sleep of Siloam

The following passage from H.P. Blavatsky is noteworthy because is shows the power of spiritual influences that still must certainly linger in the Egyptian Pyramids: “The initiated adept, who had successfully passed through all the trials,” she says,

“was attached, not nailed, but simply tied on a couch in the form of a tau … [and] plunged in a deep sleep.”



“He was allowed to remain in this state for three days and three nights, during which time his Spiritual Ego was said to confabulate with the ‘gods,’ descend into Hades, Amenti, or Patala (according to the country),

and do works of charity to the invisible beings, whether souls of men or Elemental Spirits.”

The Adepts body remained the entire time, Blavatsky wrote, “in a temple crypt or subterranean cave.”


“In Egypt it was placed in the Sarcophagus in the King’s Chamberof the Pyramid of Cheops, and carried during the night of the approaching third day to the entrance of a gallery,” she explains:

“where at a certain hour the beams of the rising Sun struck full on the face of the entranced candidate, who awoke to be initiated by Osiris, and Thoth the God of Wisdom.”

A World Within & Around

Elemental entities exude a normally invisible, living “presence” around us, are made of a sublimated material, yet are still tangible physical “reality.”


Elemental Entity

Such forms are alive, and preserve images and ideas of the past — and in certain cases, perhaps, speak to us about our own past”, Blavatsky Wrote.

“The whole Kosmos,” H. P. Blavatsky explains in The Secret Doctrine,

“… is guided, controlled, and animated by almost endless series of Hierarchies of sentient Beings–”

Each of these has “a mission to perform,” she says, and “are the agents of Karmic and Cosmic Laws” — and “they vary infinitely in their respective degrees of consciousness and intelligence.”


Interacting with Other Realms

Researcher Freddy Silva shows how Gothic cathedrals are secretly encoded with information by Knights Templars; that Stone circles emit magnetic fields and ultrasonics; and mysterious crop circles microscopically alter plants, water and soil.

Temples of Initiation

According to the theosophic tradition, the Great Pyramid was originally used as a temple of initiation.

H.P. Blavatsky says that it “was built ages before [Khufu] and he only desecrated it by giving it another use. In his day no more initiations took place in it, and he consecrated it to Tet, or Seth-Typhon [the opposite pole to Thoth].”


“She links the Pyramid with the Egyptian Temple of Dendera, ” writes David Pratt, “some 270 miles south of Giza, and states that since the two Dendera zodiacs show, among other things, the passage of three precessional cycles, or about 78,000 years, the possibility that the Pyramid is of a similar age is worth serious consideration (The Secret Doctrine 2:432).”

How are initiations into higher states of consciousness possible?


“The special organ of consciousness is of course the brain,” wrote H. P. Blavatsky, “and is located in the aura of the pineal gland in the living man.”

“During the process of mind or thought manifesting to consciousness, constant vibrations of light take place. If one could see clairvoyantly in the brain of a living man one could almost count (see with the eye) the seven shades of the successive scales of light, from the dullest to the brightest.”

Temples are generally located above blind springs. These underground courses of water interact with a local magnetic field to spirals of energy which rise out of the ground.

Their locations are often marked by menhirs, dolmens and other large standing stones.


“A spinning motion of energy generates an EM charge in water and creates a local magnetic field,” Freddy Silva writes.

“This can influence the human body to an extraordinary degree: by influencing the iron contained in blood, and the movement of blood itself through the veins, since blood also requires spin to move around the body.

“Furthermore, anyone interacting with a weak magnetic field starts to feel changes in their state of awareness, since the spin motion of energy also stimulates and vibrates the pineal gland, not to mention the millions of particles of magnetite suspended in the liquid surrounding the brain.”

Giant’s Grave


“It is just as possible that future should have in store for us the discovery of the giant skeleton of an Atlantean, 30ft. high, as the fossil of a pithecoid ‘missing link’: only the former is more probable.” – H. P. Blavatsky

Sacred Sites & Magnetic Fields

“So, as you prepare to enter a sacred site your body is being conditioned to accept more penetrating forms of energy,” Silva writes:

“And since the subtle energy properties of a temple suggest it is also a living organism, the site reads a pilgrim’s electrical field like a credit card. If there is sympathetic resonance between the person entering the site and the site itself, then an immediate bond takes place between both organisms.”


“Since the human body is a positively and negatively-charged electrical circuit, the alteration of a nearby electro-magnetic field will have a corresponding affect on its state of awareness.

“When building sacred sites, the choice of stone was considered for its amount of quartz: a highly programmable and piezo-electric compound. Any amount of pressure on quartz-bearing rock produces a subtle EM field.


“And that is where the temple-building technology reveals itself: human DNA is sensitive to such alterations of local EM fields. Entering a temple rich in subtle energies allows for an exchange of information between the stones and the human edifice.”

“It is well documented that many standing stones in Britain can and do give off high electrical charges, especially when they have not been grounded for many years.

Dowsers are especially prone to these effects since they tend to come into the contact with standing stones in remote places, out of curiosity.


“It is not unusual to hear of people touching these splendid stones, in the process grounding them, and the resulting static charge throwing a person back some twelve feet!”



Freddy Silva is one of the world’s leading researchers of ancient systems of knowledge and the interaction between temples and consciousness. He is also a best-selling author and film-maker.

He lectures internationally, with keynote presentations at the International Science and Consciousness Conference, and the International Society For The Study Of Subtle Energies & Energy Medicine, in addition to appearances on The History Channel, Discovery Channel, BBC, video documentaries and radio shows. Described by the CEO of Universal Light Expo as “perhaps the best metaphysical speaker in the world right now.”
