Part One: Lots of Sevens Down Through the Ages
Writing this series of articles is taking me on a journey through ancient maps and religious texts… among esoteric writings and myths and interpretations from more recent times… in search of information about how The Seven ethereals or superhumans might have lent a guiding hand to humanity on various occasions across the millennia.
You Probably Know The Seven
If you’re a regular reader, you know that The Seven and their messages are a cornerstone of this website and provide a framework for the afterlife descriptions it contains. And you’re probably familiar with the miraculous contacts that The Seven made to our INIT group, especially through the ITC (instrumental transcommunication) bridge established with our Luxembourg member, Maggy Harsch-Fischbach.
We know that The Seven have been around for a long, long time, trying to nudge humanity toward our paradise destiny. As they told our INIT group through a telephone answering device in Luxembourg in 1995:
This is the seventh time that we accompany and guide you on your progress toward a free, wealthy, and sane future in which humanity would have stripped off the chains of intolerance and cruelty—a future in which it will be able to establish fruitful and durable relationship with the light, ethereal realms of existence….
Listen to that message… as you read it above:
When they say, “This is the seventh time that we accompany and guide you”… I believe they are addressing us humans of the Second Epoch, which began in Babylon. If that’s the case, then there have been six times since Babylon when The Seven came especially close to our world to help us out. The ITC bridge forged with our INIT group marked the seventh time.
During the First Epoch, the age of Atlantis, I believe that ethereal beings and extraterrestrial cultures and the superhumans of Eden and their gifted descendants (the “Titans,” or demigods) all played a more “hands-on” role in human affairs. In fact, I believe it was the bright minds of Atlantis who engineered us modern humans to be the noble-savage creatures we are today. That is evident from many of the murals and stone carvings of ancient cultures that are stored in dusty archives… (which are largely avoided by nervous modern scientists trying to preserve a cracking Newtonian paradigm).
So, evidence suggests that we didn’t just “evolve from the apes,” which is still the prevailing theory of modern science. We were largely engineered by far more gifted and knowledgeable humans in Atlantis… who no longer walk the Earth in physical form.
Some big mistakes were made in Atlantis (what religions have come to call “the fall of man”), and we modern humans, with our short lifespans and noble-savage natures, were apparently delegated to the slow, painstaking task of making things right… restoring the Earth to a paradise environment.
Obviously we still have a long way to go! (see my Noble Savage World website…)
Unfortunately, the ITC bridge of our INIT group fell apart amid petty bickering before The Seven had the opportunity to give us more details about how exactly they’ve been interacting with humanity since the time of Babylon.
(In fairness, the “petty bickering” among INIT members grew painfully out of proportion as it was stirred up by forces on both sides of the veil. The Seven also told us in the contact mentioned earlier: “Our and your opponents try to prevent this by all means”... referring to a fruitful rapport between humanity and the finer realms of spirit. There were dark forces working against us… and they seem to have been rather effective.)
So that leaves us today with the job of studying the messages of The Seven and comparing their reliable, world-changing information to the myths and wisdom of ancient cultures and the insights of bright esoteric thinkers of recent times… and then making educated guesses about how exactly The Seven have been interacting with humanity in this, the Second Epoch.
Lots of Sevens
A detailed study of human history would probably show that the number 7 has been the most popular number of all time. We can get a quick snapshot of that hypothesis by comparing the Wikipedia entries about the basic numbers 1 through 10 (see below). All ten of those entries have been compiled by lots of bright researchers exploring all aspects of human endeavor… literature, science, art, movies, religion, myth, and so on… and how each number has played a role.
The article on the number 7 is the most extensive, suggesting that it shows up the most throughout the annals of human history.
It could just be a bias among a lot of wikipedia researchers toward the number 7, but I prefer to believe that 7 has always been a key number in human affairs… and one reason is probably the impact The Seven have had on humanity. Their influence has permeated all areas of human affairs.
That’s the hypothesis I hope to illustrate with this series of articles.
The next article will begin to explore some of the many sevens that show up in our rich history:
- the seven archangels,
- the seven spirits of God,
- the seven churches of revelation,
- the seven stars,
- the seven lamps of fire,
- the seven trumpeted angels,
- the seven branches of a menorah,
- the seven pillars of the house of wisdom,
- the seven rays,
- the seven colors of the rainbow,
- the seven hathors,
- the seven chakras,
- the seven stars and gurus (sapta richi),
- the seven shaktis or deities,
- the seven horses of Surya,
- the seven Hindu saptarishis (sages) born of Brahma…
- the seven lucky gods (Japanese mythology),
- the seven divine women stranded on Earth (according to the Khasi people of India),
- the seven main islands of Atlantis,
- the seven days in a week…
… and other significant 7s of history that might (or might not) correlate to “The Seven” powerful beings who came close to our world in the closing years of the Twentieth century to open wide the veil between our world and the worlds of spirit.
