As Below so Above in the Bible

Posted on Updated on

There are 2 other sites I wish to add to this one for this study:
“As Above, So Below” – Numerology
“As above – so below” first published in 1996. A.Luneng

The Cornerstone

The stone the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone. By the LORD this has been done and it is woderful in our eyes.

– Psalm 118:22-23

As Below so Above

The Bible frequent symbolic use of the hexagram, and its two opposing triangles, can be found throughout both the Old and New Testament. It should come as no surprise that both the Eye Above the Pyramid and the Eye Below the Pyramid can be used to represent numerous Biblical passages. Here are just a small sampling of this symbolic method:

Though they dig down to the depths below, from there my hand will take them. Though they climb up to the heavens above, from there I will bring them down.

– Amos 9:2

EYE BELOW: ‘down to the depths below’

EYE ABOVE: ‘up to the heavens above’

5 Words You Should Remove From Your Vocabulary

Words carry power, and I’ve found called myself names I thought I didn’t mean, only to find out later that I did mean them. Because behind every word is intention.

If my intention is to be kind to myself and to others, then I have no reason to use the following words:

1. Stupid

We call ourselves, people and things stupid if they don’t do what we want them to when we want them to. Releasing this word from your vocabulary allows you to accept things the way they are. Who are we to judge who someone is? What something is? And when something occurs?

2. Fat

If you’re calling yourself and others this word, STOP! This word spreads pure hate. Do you want to contribute hate or love to this world? If you want to be a positive influence in this world, using this word will do the opposite of your intention.

3. Should

If things were meant to be a certain way, they would be that way. If you were meant to be with your former partner, you would be. If you were meant to be a millionaire, you would be one. If you were meant to have different parents, you would have different parents. You are exactly where you are meant to be, and you can use what you have to progress. Wishing things were different from how they are now will stop you from progressing successfully.

4. Hate

It isn’t only a strong word, but a word that promotes negativity. Why focus on what’s going wrong with your day and life, when you can focus on what’s going right.

5. Loser

People have their own routes in this journey of life. Most of the time there isn’t a winner and a loser because all of us have something to learn from life. If someone has decided to live life the way that they want to, which may seem bizarre to you and others, you aren’t the judge of how and what they are meant to achieve. Have enough respect and consideration for people to let them live life the way they want, without them being fearful of labels and restrictions.

6 Steps to Clutter-Free Living

“How we care for our home is a subtle but significant expression of self-esteem.”
—Gunilla Norris

What are the messages your home is sending out to you?

Are you receiving peaceful or chaotic vibes? You must realize that your home is revealing your life story and can either facilitate your growth or stunt it. As you know, clutter shrinks your personal and professional energy, binding you to “things” rather than allowing your energy to skyrocket.

Imagine you are the driver in the front car of a train.

You are going from New York to California to follow your dream of living by the beach. Your plan is to get to Los Angeles in three days, but at every stop, you pick up dozens of freight cars that attach onto your back. Your speed becomes slower and slower. You suddenly realize that you have accumulated five miles of cargo behind you. Do you think you’ll get to California in the same amount of time as originally planned? Are you lagging and more likely to get bogged down with engine problems?
Here’s the message.

Keeping your clutter is like carrying miles of freight energy on your back. It blocks you from stretching your wings and flying towards your successful destiny.
It’s important to begin clearing clutter today. Try to look beyond the clutter and visualize how you will feel when your home and mind are clean. Start with the baby steps listed below. If you find your momentum, don’t stop. Clearing clutter is your ticket to happiness, success, productivity and a beautiful home!

  1. In general, quickly recycle junk mail as well as old newspapers and magazines. If there are articles you want to keep, cut them out and put them in a special box.
  2. In the bedroom, clear clutter from underneath your bed. Go through your closet and let go of old and unworn clothes, shoes, belts, hats and scarves. They can be given to a charitable organization or friends. Remove photos or mementos from people that drain your energy. Wash your drapes and bedding.
  3. In the living room, go through your bookcase and give away half-read books that you never intend to read again. You can keep books you love, refer to, have sentimental value and move you forward towards your goals. Let go of books that no longer serve you (i.e. books from a past career, from college or an outgrown hobby) and donate them to a local library. Clear your bookshelves to open the door for new interests. Buy a couple books that move you in your desired direction. Repeat this with your CDs, DVD’s and photos.
  4. De-clutter your coffee table and mantel. Take everything off and then only put back the objects you need, use or love. Beauty and organization is the key.  Get a decorative box to place your remote controls!  Instead, place a favorite book with a beautiful picture on the cover.  It’s a good conversation piece.
  5. Re-access your collections. Can you downsize? You may want to give a few away or sell them on the Internet. Make money for new hobbies and interests.
  6. Dust, vacuum and clean your windows. Open the windows and let fresh air inside. Invite the fresh energy of spring to flow into your life!

7 Ways To Unlock Your Potential By Clearing Clutter

Clutter affects your whole life. You cannot be successful in the way you have dreamed of if you’re stuck in the quicksand of clutter. 

Frankly, it keeps you lodged in the past and makes it difficult to move towards a fulfilling future.

Clutter comes in all shapes and sizes. Your clutter may be stacked in corners, piled on tables, stuffed in drawers, squished in filing cabinets, packed in attics, and hidden behind closed doors. Unfortunately, wherever it materializes, you feel depleted just thinking about it.

In feng shui terms, clutter creates stagnant energy that keeps you trapped in every way imaginable. 

The motto Healthy energy is moving energy applies here. If you cannot move through your home without being obstructed by clutter, you can be certain that subtle energy will not be able to flow, either. When energy stops flowing, life stops progressing. 

Clutter also creates a feeling of pandemonium as you find yourself running in 20 directions simultaneously. With so many stimuli encircling you, it’s impossible to focus on what to do, where to go, or what you want. 

How do you expect to achieve your goals if you are consumed with locating basic necessities amidst your chaos?

Feeling out of control in your environment seeps into your everyday life. Clutter pulls your energy down. You may experience this as feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, frustrated, confused, or depressed. Massive success and fulfillment do not fit into this equation. In some cases, your social life is also negatively affected. You become so embarrassed by all your “stuff” that you avoid entertaining friends. If they do come by and it’s a mess, what does that imply about who you are and how you feel about yourself? 

It’s time to “unplug” yourself from the turmoil in your environment so you can surge forward. Try re-framing any negative thoughts and tap into the vision of the unlimited possibilities that await you on the other side of chaos. Just clearing one drawer can open up your heart and mind to new possibilities. You will immediately feel a sense of relief and will have more energy to continue the process.

Organizing your belongings will bring you liberation and expansion. Instead of focusing on what you are getting rid of, concentrate on moving towards your dreams and goals. As soon as you begin, you will feel lighter, happier, more motivated, and more confident about yourself. When you remove the clutter, you’ll have nothing holding you back, and your life will be free to take the form you envision for it. 

Below are seven tips for getting started!

1. Cut the cord and let go of things that keep you stuck in the past. (i.e. mementos from past relationships, clothes that don’t fit, pictures and letters from people who didn’t support you, items you keep “just in case.”)

2. Try easy things first. Recycle junk mail, magazines/newpapers, expired foods, broken items, old schedules, coupons etc.

3. Start small and build momentum. The dining table, the mantel, a kitchen drawer is a good place to begin. Trick yourself into doing a small area and once you finish it, you’ll have more energy to tackle the larger ones.

4. Complete one area at a time. Do not go back and forth between different areas. You end up scattering your energy and won’t see results anywhere.

5. Clean up after each session. Take the garbage to the dump. Place donation bags, dry-cleaning and objects to be repaired in your trunk to drop off. Tidy the area where you worked so you can see your progress.

6. Do a simple space cleansing afterwards to allow fresh energy to infuse your surroundings.

7. Create a sacred space for meditation, contemplation and to connect with your highest self. Once your mind and space are free of clutter, you’ll be able to focus on your dreams and goals.

Remind yourself that the clearing process may not always feel comfortable, but it is essential to achieving harmony and success. Change isn’t always easy, but the reward is nothing short of a personal evolution. (for more clutter clearing tips, click here.)
