Violet Screen Meditation


By Richard Kieninger


In one's haste to develop the emotional maturity and spiritual abilities necessary to achieve Initiation, the path can be precarious. We must carefully analyze all methods we are introduced to in order to avoid the pitfalls which can lead to a lifetime of wasted effort.


Among the seven qualifications for Brotherhood, one is the attainment of cosmic consciousness. Cosmic consciousness is the combined abilities of controlled clairvoyance and mystic awareness. Clairvoyance is defined as “clear seeing.” By controlled clairvoyance, we mean that one has developed the ability to “turn on” his clairvoyance at will, so that it is self-controlled. Then clairvoyance no longer occurs randomly; it no longer just “happens to” the aspirant to initiation, but becomes a tool for his use at will. A clairvoyant is able to see and learn some things about Egos on the Astral Plane. The best and safest methods to attain controlled clairvoyance are to advance yourself by attaining a balanced and refined character. When you are spiritually advanced enough, you will automatically become clairvoyant. It has many benefits, such as the ability to judge character of both living persons and discarnate Egos by their auras and the opportunity to have limited communication with Egos not in incarnation.


Clairvoyance should be clearly distinguished from mystic awareness, which is a brain state characterized by neurologic interconnections between all the major centers of the brain, especially the cerebellum, neocortex and limbic system. This state permits an expanded mode of processing information so as to gain insights into the nature of reality beyond the reach of having only cortex processes available for reasoning and awareness.


The mystic state is most safely enhanced through the use of Violet Screen meditation. Mystic awareness makes full use of our brain power. It's an altered state of consciousness, achieved naturally, in which the cortex is briefly (for thirty seconds to several minutes) integrated with the lower portions of the brain, allowing intuitive understanding of various aspects of the Universe. Altogether, cosmic consciousness gives Brothers fuller and more magnificent perception of the Universe as it really is.


What is Violet Screen meditation and how does one go about it? Meditation is used to still the chatter in one's brain and is very effective in creating a relaxed state. If used improperly, however, it can also cause one to become subject to interference from nether entities. Meditation “without seed,” or in other words, without focus, allows negative spirits to plant thoughts or pictures into one's brain through the lowering of one's threshold of resistance. If one is intently focusing on something, such as the color violet, while simultaneously disciplining the brain not to allow other thoughts to intrude, this prevents spirits from being able to impose their thoughts on our brain.


The color violet is the most easily imagined color—and that's what we're actually doing in this exercise. We're imagining the color in our mind's eye. It is beneficial to do this exercise once or twice daily, but for no more than ten minutes per sitting. Do not consider yourself a failure if you are not successful in achieving and maintaining the color violet for 5-10 minutes. The exercise is still beneficial. It is the concentrating and relaxed alertness that is really of value. 5-10 minutes should be the total time you take in doing the exercise; it isn't necessary to try for 30 minutes.


It is believed that people with mystic awareness, such as Einstein, break into clairvoyance because of the intense concentration they so frequently engage in as they're attempting to resolve the mysteries of the universe and make new discoveries. The intense concentration is what primes the brain for making the neural connections necessary in mystic awareness. It is also necessary for having clear, detailed visualizations when precipitating things or conditions into our environments. Intellectual techniques such as the Violet Screen are by far the safest since one's phasing from consciousness to super-consciousness is then never outside the control of the practicing Ego. Scientists who have achieved the mystic state did not do so by meditation but rather by deeply intense cogitation with the desire to penetrate a problem.


The need of theoretical physicists to be able to mentally image the realities of the construction of the Universe has given impetus to a scientific study of the unique level of conscious perception found in mystic awareness. This mental state has been brought out of the esoteric realm of wizards and metaphysicians into the light of legitimate scientific analysis with profitable results. The cortex of the human brain is limited in its ability to perceive reality. Normal, waking consciousness is a brain function that provides an exclusionary focus of concentration on a set of ideas in rational, sequential order. The neurological switching mechanism within the cortex is best likened to a digital computer—a yes-no or on-off circuitry. Unfortunately, this does not allow a human being to perceive the Universe in the fullness of its reality. Just as scientists and engineers must turn to analog computers to solve certain complex problems which human brains could never practically resolve, there are some scientists at the frontiers of scientific thought who have by means of their mystic awareness been able to penetrate the awe-inspiring, improbable, non-rational, beautiful realities of Creation. The mystics of ages past have been telling us that time, space, and the atom are fathomable in the brain state of mystic awareness. The mathematicians and physicists who have been able to thus visualize our Universe through their specially developed intellects have actually attained a state of neural integration between the non-conscious “analog” portions of their brains and the “digital” cortex portions through which waking consciousness functions. There is no possible way to otherwise experience and penetrate fourth-dimension concepts, the mechanics of ether, or the vortex nature of matter and energy.


Mystic awareness involves a re-patterning of neural networks in the brain in order to attain a previously nonexistent (but always possible) mode of intercellular communication between our two sub-brains and our conscious brain. The cortex (the thinking-intellectual part) and the limbic system and thalamus (the feeling-emotion part) and the medulla oblongata (the intuition-archaic part) integrate into a “new” whole brain in the individual who has achieved the mystic state of consciousness. This gives the Ego a new mode of perception and feeling and provides non-rational (not irrational) forms of logic which are multi‑level/integrated/simultaneous in addition to the normal linear/sequential/either-or. Remember, however, that the brain is not an organ for generating consciousness, but rather is the instrument of the physical plane through which Egoic consciousness on the Mental Plane of Existence functions. The only point of direct contact and interaction between spirit and the physical cosmos is the mind-brain of man. It is also important to make the distinction that we are not discussing here the differences between right and left hemisphere brain functions.


Brainwave experimenters have established that mystic awareness is a genuine state of consciousness rather than merely imagination. Measurable physiological parameters are observable on the electroencephalograph when accomplished mystics are monitored during their “trances.” Scientists have learned that beta waves (14-20 cycles per second) are produced when a person is awake and responding to external stimuli, alpha waves (8-12 CPS) when the brain is occupied with its own thoughts, theta waves (4-7 CPS) when the thinker is conscious neither of his physical self nor of the outside world, and delta waves (1/2 to 3 1/2 CPS) when the subject is asleep. Mystics produce alpha waves at a high amplitude of 70-100 micro-volts; and as their mystic state deepens from alpha to theta, the amplitude remains high, indicating a unique state of intense mental alertness.


Whether a mystic began as a scientist, ascetic, or occultist, his or her profound experiences in the state of mystic awareness are reported as overwhelmingly beautiful and allow visualization of abstract constructs. Mystics tend to be regarded as aberrant by those who still labor in an un-awakened, semi-illusory condition of tradition-imposed philosophy and values. Therefore, a mystic prefers the company of other mystics who can understand him, and he essentially disappears from general view. Humanistic psychologists, such as A.H. Maslow, who have been analyzing the components of true mental health, believe they have found mystics to be the sanest and healthiest of individuals. The love of the mystic for other people is non-possessive, cannot be sated, grows with enjoyment, is therapeutic, lacks anxiety-hostility, permits self-autonomy to both parties, deeply experiences the other person, and is a beautiful experience.


All Brothers have attuned themselves to further perception of reality through mystic awareness combined with controlled clairvoyance. Of course, there are important requisites to becoming a Brother in addition to cosmic consciousness; and there are no potions or appliances one can use to achieve any of the requisites.

We can be grateful that the path to spiritual advancement has been cleared for us and that we don't have to stumble blindly. Violet Screen meditation is a tool that we can use with confidence, as it is beneficial in every way.
