THIS HAS BEEN AN EXCITING TIME HERE AT THE STUDY
However what interested me most was the discovery that the number of swings which my pendulum has been giving over pictures and thumbs has been almost exact*- counting ten swings to one degree biometric. For instance, the picture of the old kahuna, which I asked you to test with your pendulum if you could, gives me over 500 pendulum swings and, on the biometer, the reading is 50 degrees plus. This makes it possible for all of us to duplicate the biometric reading, granted that we swing a mean pendulum. All one does is count the swings and divide the number by ten to get the biometric reading.
THIS GIVES US A TOOL with which to measure the radiation wave length of many things, and also the strength of the radiation. I am now quite sure that our pendulum measure of the mana and of a mana-aka unit as a surcharge will be accurate enough to enable us to go ahead with experimental work on these lines.
As you know, our investigation of the Abrams type of “Pathoclast” instrument suggests that the length of a wire can be used to TUNE into the wave length of various bodily organs for testing and for treatment by contact or over a distance. If this is not the correct method of tuning, we will eventually find exactly what it is, and will go on from there with tests of the mana on its aka thread, etc.
AMULETS and “medicine” articles, the “gris-gris” of the African magicians, and all the strange objects and combinations of objects often used with such effect in “native magic” suddenly begin to take on great importance for use. We begin to get a glimmering of light on the ki leaves, “marking stones” and other objects used by na kahuna. I have said in my writings that these objects were probably useful as physical stimuli to impress the Aunihipili, but now I can see that they might have been known to have a very definite wave length or to be capable of (1) acting as a tuning device to produce wave lengths of a certain desired kind, or (2) of taking and storing a surcharge of mana (together with accompanying aka substance to direct its work.) Na kahuna have given us a working idea of the manner in which the “dielectric” force of the pendulum measurements or of the Pathoclast can SEEMINGLY ACT AS IF LIVING AND CONSCIOUS.
Take the dowser who swings his pendulum over a map and thus locates oil, gold or water. Take the person who sends out a telepathic message across half the world. Take the doctor setting his Pathoclast type of instrument and treating a patient across oceans.
The aka thread offers us the perfect conductor of the mana flow. The consciousness of the Aunihipili (perhaps with the help of the Aumakua or other unidentified entities) can reach out as with a very long “finger” to find the water or oil or missing person and, on the map, the pendulum is moved to indicate the place.
What we now will try to find out is whether:
1. We can fill a wire, a piece of wood, stone, plastic, or other substance with a surcharge of vital force and some of our plentiful and self-renewing aka substance, keeping, of course, an aka thread to connect our Aunihipili consciousness with the surcharged article.
2. That done, we will see if our Aunihipili will furnish the consciousness to make the object “live” and act to discharge the stored mana in a particular way in healing, or what is now most important, to serve as a tuning fork or pitch pipe serves with sound, and TUNE the wave length of the stored surcharge of mana.
3. If the experiment is successful, and we can use this tuning ability to react on one in need of healing, and bring a sick organ back to the proper wave length, as is apparently done by the Pathoclast type of instruments in the hands of a naturally psychic operator, we will have made a GREAT FORWARD STEP for our study and for the world.
It would seem that the use of amulets and similar things, all the way from darkest Africa, to the blessed medals of the modern Church, has been based on a very real mechanism. It will seem very odd to be going back to things that proud science has tossed into the discard as “black superstition,” but we may be doing that very thing – with all the modern improvements, and with the element of the usefulness of the physical stimulus by no means overlooked.
An object, once given a surcharge of mana, seems to be able to hold it and to react as ordered for a very long time. The curses put on those who might open ancient Egyptian tombs may have been mana surcharges in aka carriers, placed in objects in the tomb. It has been conjectured that the strange fate that befell the openers of King Tut’s tomb came because of some ancient curse. Our Australian IRAs found in three cases a very amazing healing power still connected with the unglazed little pottery “prayer bowl” which had been made three thousand years ago for a Jewish family by a Babylonian priest. The power in it could still be felt – could still be drawn upon for healing and help by a simple request and expectation. Perhaps the Mana-aka charge placed in the bowl reacts automatically. Perhaps the treating unit of a Pathoclast also reacts automatically and for the same reason – the original surcharging and command. Or it may be that the prayer bowl is permanently connected by an aka thread to both the Babylonian priest who made it and the High Selves who were called upon to empower the healing.
Here is another very important point. We cannot fail to ask whether or not the force placed in the prayer bowl will become exhausted. As we use up force of any kind, it becomes exhausted and is all gone unless replenished. Then why not the healing force in the bowl?
This brings us to the point which I wish to stress. It may be that the bowl acts as does a magnet, retaining its magnetic properties because its crystalline parts have been made to face in a certain direction. AND, it may act ONLY AS A TUNING DEVICE.
If this is TRUE, the force placed in the bowl would not wear out or need to be replenished. We know that a piece of wire laid in a spiral coil on a bit of cardboard can tune in the various wave lengths of radio broadcasts. In the Bovis biometer we see the lengthening or shortening of a simple 9 inch metal rule acting to tune to the vibration of a photo, a signature or a person’s brain. In the Pathoclast, the wire seems not to need to be coiled or insulated, its length being the tuning factor, as in the biometer.
I have been reading an article by a man who has been using his pendulum to test the vital force in his body on the right and left (or positive and negative) sides. He reported a strange thing. At least it is strange unless we follow the line of thought of the “tuning.” To increase his vitality, he found that he must carry his knife and keys in his right-hand pockets. And, after some experimenting, so he relates, he found that a small coil of insulated wire, when carried in the right-hand pocket, increased his vital force by several points. The coil was made of a yard or so of wire and was simply rolled up and tied like a coil of rope, top and bottom. I take it that he tried changing the length of the wire until his pendulum test showed what was the best for the purpose.
I am greatly intrigued by that simple experiment and the results obtained. Evidently this gentleman tuned his mana in his body as it moved or flowed or did what mana is supposed to do. The fact that (I now speculate. The writer does not give what I am now presenting.) the polarity of the body was considered and the coil found to be more useful on the right side, is not sufficient to explain the rise in the vital force charge of the whole body. It is necessary, if we are to understand this at all, to decide that he actually made an amulet of the wire as he tested it. He desired to cause it to raise his vitality radiation or wave length. He worked with the wire, testing and lengthening or shortening it – coiling it. In other words, he caused to enter the wire a unit of mana-aka which then reacted as if “alive” and as if “intelligent” (as a magnet may be thought to do in a lesser way), with the result that the coil, when placed in the pocket, went dutifully to work to perform the task of tuning the wave length a bit higher. It is evident that the wire in itself produces no new or additional mana or vital force.
If you have read the article in the January-February Round Robin, by HRA Meade Layne, entitled THE NET AND THE FISH, as most of you have, you will remember the three pages as being the most inspired writing of a decade to be given by a communicator from other life levels. Let me quote the final paragraph. It bears directly on the matter under discussion. “There is a sound for health and for illness, for wealth and for poverty, for increase and diminution, for life and death, and for joy and sorrow. With the sound, as has been said, must go the creative thought, the clear-cut wish, the clear, firm visualization of the change one seeks. This is the Mantram, this is the prayer; and the Mantram is scientific prayer.”
Sound is a vibration. It also may be tuned. The string or wire of piano or violin is tuned by the adjustment of length, of wire-thickness, and of tightness of stretching. What I wish to point out here is the fact that vibrations run in octaves, not only in the tone range of a piano, but the octaves go up and down, through light and colors and heat, through the wave lengths in radiations.
For our work, however, all must go back to the basic thing, to the vibratory rate of the THINKING we must first do. Given the vibratory rate of the HEALTH THOUGHTS, for example, we can then try to go on down the octaves to pick up the dielectric or mana and tune it to match – tune it with the instrument we propose to invent, or otherwise. There will be an octave of light, which will undoubtedly be a color. Continuing downward, we will find the corresponding octave in sound. Dr. Hanoka, who has written a fine book in Spanish on color therapy, tells me that he has often identified the color and the corresponding note on the music scale.
When we strike a middle octave note on the piano, it causes a sympathetic vibration in similar notes in the octaves above and below. It may be that this extends up to octaves of color and also to the high radiations of mana and thought, perhaps to the high mana of the na Aumakua. Correct tuning in may be the key to far-reaching actions. In the future we, as HRAs, may have our personal altars and on them present the exact sound and light tone to match and empower our higher octave thought forms of prayer. We may learn to intone the right sound for each purpose as a mantram, and to adjust the color that plays as light on the amulet or sacred object used for tuning in with na Aumakua. Let me give another paragraph from the article, or rather, parts of two paragraphs.
“A word is a bell, a mantram is a bell – strike it thus and so, and – as by resonance, by harmonics – a Something in the Omniverse responds. Know how to strike it rightly, and the universal life answers in kind. Man, the weaver of threads: Man, the spider at the center of his mesh of living threads! Let man learn to sound the Calls. Out of Sound the worlds are born, and your world of objects, and your own bodies. This even your science is beginning to glimpse, as through a glass darkly.”
Yes, sound is the symbol for the “Word,” and for all the many frequencies of vibratory things which make up the world, visible and invisible. In our work we are trying to combine the old and dusty knowledge of other days with that of our explosive TODAY. I affirm that what we are doing as HRAs is vastly important. A few may say, “This bores me,” and go off to other lines of thought, but I know that to the majority of us we have found a wheel worthy of our best shoulder and of all that we have of supporting cooperation. Stand by.
BOOKS and PUBLICATIONS
ADVENTURES IN REALIZATION is the title of a new book by our own HRA Winogene Savage. (Beautifully printed and bound, 116 pages. Price $2 from the author, 11184 Carson Dr., Lynwood, Calif.)
This is such a book as most of us have planned to write one day, but which most of us have never gotten around to starting – to say nothing of finishing. It covers all the angles of the psycho-religious field in its wide sweep, presenting the wealth of gleanings found by the writer in a world-wide searching of old and new faiths. Had Mrs. Savage known of Huna at the time she was doing the writing, she would have rounded out her subject to a turn. As it is, if one will read their Huna in between the lines, it will be found to contain a surprising assortment of teachings and of instructions for the job of living. It is a surprising, as well as a delightful book in many ways. Verse is used for the inspirational passages, and allegory vies with personification of such things as “Impatience” and “Hunger,” each talking directly to the reader. A little play in two acts and five scenes sparkles with symbols and veiled hints at deeper meanings.
Mixed with the poetry and mysticism is the over-all flavor of the practical and very energetic writer. She has been in and out of all the paths and she is very busily and soberly engaged in doing her very best – and a very good best it is – to lend a guiding hand to those about to undertake the same journey. She has put up a guidepost at every turn to help in every way she can to explain the ins and outs of that particular turn. Nor does she hesitate to say what she thinks. Here is a sample of her very vital prose. “How then, can I argue Methodist or Baptist, Presbyterian or Episcopalian, when I cannot even argue Christian? Christ is in them all. When Krishna counselled with Arjuna, as recorded in the Bhagavad Gita of the Hindu scriptures, it was the word of Christ. The same One spoke in all the prophets, and will speak again to many lands and people. Let me hear Him everywhere, and love His every speaking.”
The mystic speaks clearly in the short play. Here are lines from the action just before the final curtain: “(Candle Lighter:) And to the many Holy Ones, unnamed today, who held the Light in all the ages of the dimming sacred yesterday and those who yet shall come in ages yet unborn – To every Messenger, To every Faith, To every Light that ever glowed or glows, I light this candle. (She lights it.) Father-God, accept our worship of the One in All, the All in One. (Benedictor:) All the illuminated souls of all the ages are the One Divine Messenger – of many forms and faces, but One Spirit, Guide, Protector, Teacher, Comforter and Master. In that One may all of us find guidance to the harbor of the Arms of Allah, Father-God. Amen.”
Again let me remind you that this is the time to get one of the few remaining copies of Dr. Nandor Fodor’s invaluable ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF PSYCHIC SCIENCE, our standard Huna reference book on all psychic matters. It digests practically everything done or thought in this line since 1848. The price is $ 7.66 post paid. If you cannot buy One now, ask me to have one reserved for you. Dr. Fodor is holding a few in reserve now against our orders, so say you are an HRA and address him at, The Park Central Hotel, 7th Ave.and 56th St., New York, N.Y. The present progress in the exploration of Huna was made possible in many ways by this unique and outstanding book. It is an education in itself.
THE ETHER SHIP MYSTERY AND ITS SOLUTION
The new “last word” on flying saucers, THE ETHER SHIP MYSTERY AND ITS SOLUTION, as was reported in the last Bulletin, is off the press in a deluxe edition at $2 the copy and a regular edition at $1 each or three for $2, plus tax in California. Postage is 8¢. Meade Layne, F.H.F., and some of his fellows of the Borderland Sciences Research Associates (to which we all belong or should, and in which I am a director), have done a splendid job of presenting the only explanation of the space ships or saucers that will hold water. The process of materialization in seances, in which real and living human bodies and things of many kinds have repeatedly appeared out of seeming nothing and then faded back into it, will be denied by no one who is less than wickedly ignorant of one of the most startling facts in modern Psychic Science. The same thing – materialization – but on a larger and different scale, is the only possible explanation of the saucers, even if they came from Venus or Mars, as they would certainly have to change their material composition to make the journey. All that we have of scientific and mathematical genius, to say nothing of profound knowledge in the field of psychism, is gathered into this book.
One of the HRAs – a very advanced student – read the book and wrote to me of her reactions. I quote: “I’ve read it through with mixed feelings of awe and foreboding. Meade Layne and the others have taken on a terrific task as latter day prophets crying, Repent Yet, in a heedless world – and having to do it single handed on a financial shoestring. Will the world always ignore its Messengers, when it does not stone them?”
We are, in a sense, all messengers. If we are not to trample each other to death in a wild and insane burst of panic on the day when the saucers really arrive in numbers and some Wells screams the news on the radio, it behooves us all to (1) inform ourselves to the limit as to the origin and nature of the saucers – in so far as present information goes, and (2) to spread the word as far and as fast as we can. (Address Meade Layne, F.H.F., 3524 Adams Ave., San Diego 16, Calif. And tell him you appreciate his labors of love.)
We will soon wade into the Egyptian-Mayan-Easter Island angle of the study in the Bulletins. Work has been going forward steadily in this direction, and with excellent promise. If you can, get from your library Werner Wolf’s new book, ISLAND OF DEATH (Easter Island). Read it carefully and you will be all set for the Bulletin with the opening broadside – Many very important similarities have been found in the glyphs common to these widely separated sources. Those on Easter Island TRANSLATE INTO THE LANGUAGE OF THE KAHUNAS!!
NEWS, LETTERS and COMMENTS
During the past year two instances of dogs following the aka threads over hundreds of miles to find their masters have been noted by HRAs and clippings on them sent in. One dog crossed the whole of the USA. His family had flown away. The other walked 800 miles. His family had gone away in a car. Sense of smell is not enough to explain such amazing performances.
Not a week passes here at the Study but that at least one letter arrives from someone who has read SSBM and has been using it, not knowing of the HRA. Health, money, conditions – endless things – have been treated with Huna methods with such success that I often feel that those of the HRA who fail to get very marked results are being cheated out of their birthrights.
A letter now on my desk says, “I thought you would like to know that SECRET SCIENCE has worked for me – distinctly and definitely.” The writer goes on to tell of work with relatives in a most difficult and deadlocked position, and of how a sudden swift series of events – undoubtedly under Guidance – came to set all right. Other letters tell of things accomplished through the use of Huna, but only after months of long and steady effort involving prayer, mana and visualization. I have corresponded with these friends and the thing that stands out in their experiences to impress me most is the steadiness and fixity of purpose with which they have gone to work. Not one can remember giving in to a fit of indignation when the answers were not soon had to their prayer-actions. They did not do as an impatient child who knocks down the almost completed house of cards and turns away. Na kahuna used for “patience” the word hoo`mana`wa`nui, which means literally, “to make or supply mana, to think and hit the mark, and to do it until the action grows larger and larger.” This is a very excellent picture of “hitting the mark” or getting the mana and thought-forms of the prayer correctly to the Aumakua.
I wish to say to any of you who are discouraged, that others are winning through. Don’t give way to an outburst of wrath if the answer does not come. Let your house of cards stand. Just take your mind off of the problem and the prayer-actions you have made. Let it alone and think about something else. Give na Aumakua time to work. Later you may wish to return to the task and continue building.
The outstanding difference between Huna and Hindu beliefs lies in the fact that in Etna, one keeps trying and renews faith in the outcome, while in India, the houses of cards have been knocked down so continually that no one any longer has the strength of mind to try to build. At some early age it became the fashion to lie down and take it when kicked by circumstances. Even to weep was frowned upon. One muttered the dread word “karma” and wallowed in his misery. Later, this fashion developed into a vast and strange virtue. As a very callow student of religions I thought I discerned the highest ideal ever expressed by man in religion, in the famous lines of the Bhagavad Gita which run, “A man is said to be confirmed in spiritual knowledge when he forsaketh every desire which entereth into his heart, and of himself is happy and content in the Self through the Self. His mind is undisturbed in adversity; he is happy and contented in prosperity, and a stranger to anxiety, fear and anger. Such a man is called a wise man when in every condition he receives each event, whether favorable or unfavorable, with an equal mind which neither likes nor dislikes.”
It took me a long time to see that this was not the way to live a healthy, normal and helpful life. It was the last word in the doctrine of escape from growth and reality on the physical level where the Powers That Be have placed us. The men of India have always grasped some small idea and stretched it out to the illogical extreme, making it useless or worse. Look what they did to reincarnation and the law of cause and effect which is now “karma.” NO! One at least TRIES.
Huna, Christianity, Mohammedanism and the mystery cults of Egypt all grew up in the vicinity of the Nile, and all were realistic and made to live by, not to die by while still in the flesh. Buddhism was a revolt against the doctrine of utter renunciation and in its spread to the east, it was made more and more practical. The “lofty idealism” which sounds so wonderful as we read it, whether in the Gita or modern American imitation philosophies, is neither “lofty” nor filled with valid “idealism” when examined in the light of normal living. How very blind are the blind leaders of the blind.
Compare two verses which HRA O.M. gives in her little book as having been a great help to her. The first is from Matthew Arnold; the second is from Henry Vaughan, a seventeenth-century poet.
“With aching hearts and, bleeding hands, We toil and toil, lay stone on stone. We bear the burden and the heat
Of the long day, and wish ’twere done. Not until the hours of light return All we have built do we discern.”
“Lord, with what courage and delight I do each thing,
When thy least breath sustains my wing!
I shine and move like those above, and with much gladness
Make me faire days of every night.”
George Eliot, in her writings, shared the fervor of na kahuna for the normal life in a normal world. O.M. gives us these lines from “Adam Bede.”
“And God help us with our headpieces and our hands as well as with our souls; and if a man does bits o’jobs out o’working hours – builds a oven for’s wife to save her going to the bakehouse, or scrats at his bit o’garden and makes two potatoes grow instead o’one, he’s doing more good, and he’s just as near to God, as if he was running after some preacher and a-praying and a-groaning.”
HRA R.L.A. also finds the surcharge of mana vanishing when the prayer and the mana are sent to the Aumakua. These checks and verifications of my findings are very important for our progress. He writes in part, “I have checked with the pendulum and find that after I have given my Aunihipili the command to take our prayer along the aka thread, together with our charge of mana, to our Aumakua, the pendulum swing falls to practically zero. So evidently ….. I am efficiently ‘watering the seeds’ nightly. My normal charge of vital force checks about 375 swings. After building up the charge I get about 675.”
In one of the recent tinned letters I hinted that I delight to have a snap shot of my HRA friends if there is one to spare. Almost a dozen have been sent in response and I still say that HRAs average as fine and intelligent a lot as I have had the pleasure of knowing. If you have not sent in a snap, and have one you can spare, I would love to have it next time you write.
A special prayer ritual about a page long has been slowly taking form for use by those of us who take part in the TMHG work. It is being tested and will be ready to mimeograph in about a week. Ask for a copy if you are interested in the TMHG and wish to see whether this might give you ideas for working. I find it helpful to have a definite form to follow.
