Do you know the feeling that ‘something’ is blocking you, which prevents you from finding the entrance to the highway of Western Esoterics?
Chances are that this is caused by cultural traumas, because of the violent religious history of our Western culture. Without you being consciously aware of it, this can a blockage in your spiritual development.
The coming weeks I want to point out seven of these big stumbling blocks to you. You will receive seven meditations from me that you can use to shed some light on these blockages and which may help you to outgrow them. The subjects of these series will increase in intensity every time, so keep a close watch to these series of articles!

This urge to be the holiest is rooted in the power struggle that was fought in the Middle ages between the church and the State. The church claimed the monopoly on spirituality. This caused a real dictatorship. Different viewpoints were not tolerated and for them there was one end solution; the stake!
This causes one of the most important spiritual techniques to be held hostage in political battles. This technique is called ‘purification’, and it is based on self-knowledge. Its goal is to develop all your potential talents, and offers the key to the spiritual process of enlightenment and redemption in Western Mysticism.
Purification is a method whereby you can develop yourself spiritually. It is not about conquering the ‘others’. It is an internal process between you and the divine, whereby the Gods hold a mirror in front of you.
Create a beautiful place for yourself. Sit down in meditation and gather your thoughts and associations around this theme.
There is no true protection, except for the protection which is granted by the accomplishment of the work of the Gods. The only true servant is he who is a copper mirror for the Unmanifested God.
Write down your associations afterwards, and watch what happens during the day. I am very curious about your experiences, and look forward to reading your reactions on my blog.
