The Exercises to Practice During Aries

We emphasize meditation so much because it is the most important method to solve our problems. Real meditation allows us to see and study internal images clearly and steadily, whether we call this "imagination" or "clairvoyance." Without the ability to see internal images, real meditation remains impossible. Fortunately, from March 21 to April 19, the zodiacal sign Aries brings its fiery Martian light to aid us.

During this time, there are powerful meditation practices we can use every day to nourish our pituitary and pineal glands, which give us the ability to see internal images. If we cannot close our eyes and see images easily, clearly, and for as long as we want, then our glands are atrophied and need nourishment.

Exercise One

"The disciple who carries out the exercises of Aries with tenacity and constancy will become an enlightened clairvoyant. During these exercises, the disciple will be assisted by the hierarchies of Aries; they will awaken his or her powers and heal the brain with special treatments. The disciple may also be able to use the power of those hierarchies for the healing of others.

"The disciple should sit in a comfortable chair and remain free from any thoughts for five minutes.

"Subsequently, the disciple should then pray to the Innermost as follows: “Father of mine, you who are my true Being, I beg you, transport yourself to the main star of the constellation of Aries, so that you will bring the principal genie of that constellation into this humble house, so that he may heal my brain and awaken all the esoteric powers in my head.” Then, with interlaced hands over the heart, the disciple will make a small bow of the head saluting the guardian at the right column, inhaling deeply as in a sigh and immediately pronouncing the password: Yakin. Immediately, one will make an identical salute to the guardian on the left and pronounce the password: Boaz. One will once again pray to his Innermost like this: “Father of mine, walk the seven sacred steps inside, towards the interior of the temple and kneel down at the feet of the principal genie of Aries, begging him to come and awaken the powers of my brain and to flood my head with light.” Then the disciple pronounces the mantra AOM. This mantra is pronounced properly by opening the mouth with the vowel “A,” rounding it off with the vowel “O,” and closing it with the letter “M,” like this: aaaaaaaaooooooooommmmmmmm. This mantra is pronounced four times with the intention that the light will flood our entire brain. Next, the disciple will stand up, extend the right hand forward, and move the head seven times forward, seven times backward, seven rotations to the right and seven times to the left, with the intention that the light floods and acts within all the glands of the brain.

"The pineal gland is influenced by Mars and the pituitary gland by Venus. The pituitary produces sleepiness, and the pineal gland incites us to fight; in this manner, while Venus wants to sleep, Mars wants to continue fighting." —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor

Exercise Two

"During this sign, the disciple should vocalize the vowel “I,” daily for one hour, like this: Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii..... (as in “tree”) This vowel will cause your pineal gland to vibrate, and finally you will become clairvoyant. When developed, the pineal gland converts us into super-humans, and when atrophied, it converts us into idiots. The pineal gland is found developed within the chaste, and atrophied within the fornicators." —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor

Exercise Three

"...every night before going to bed the disciple should practice this next exercise: Sit in a comfortable chair for half an hour. Close your eyes. Remove all thoughts from your mind. Then, imagine that the fire from the constellation of Aries is descending from heaven and penetrating the igneous columns through your pineal gland. The pineal gland is situated in the superior part of the brain and the power to see the ultra of all things resides in it." —Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor
