The Seven Seals in the Book of Revelation

Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say, as with a voice of thunder, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Rev 6:1-2

“There are various ways to understand the seals. In terms of our developing consciousness we could look at how the seals can be applied to seven different areas of our being. This means that we not only accept theoretically that the human being is more than just a physical body, but that we actually experience how the seven areas of our being function.

John is urging us to see, to behold, idou, in more detail who we really are. It is as if the beholding sets off a reaction and one of the four living creatures sounds like a crack of thunder. Come! Act! Move from where you are! Imagine how loud it would have been. Perhaps this was necessary, as if to break open a new ability within John so that he could see what no human being had ever seen before.

John’s journey through the seven seals can assist us to experience our whole being more consciously. These are not seven divisions, but rather areas of activity which interweave with each other. If we can experience their different qualities and become aware of how they interact, we can have more influence over them. The more influence we have the more freedom we experience. In fact, true freedom is not about doing whatever we please, it is about having the freedom to control our consciousness. The journey through the seven seals shows how this takes place.” Kristina Kaine

  1. We are living through momentous Times .the speed of events that affect us are increasing a 1000 fold. Many human beings are overwhelmed with the challenges….the 7 seals ( our 7 chakras ) are becoming unsealed ,leaving many unable to make sense of the Initiations…Much Pain on every level is experienced ,mental stigmata forces many sufferers to seek Psychiatric help with disastrous results …I KNOW as I was rejected by the Centre that I did much voluntary works for ……

  2. Moira, it happens everywhere. People are focused on their own path as you are. If we feel pain then we look to our karma – but only if we do it objectively can we create the balance. Creating this balance is the purpose of our incarnation.
