This is a follow-up to my July 19 post titled ‘The Life of Service to the Highest Truth.’
Based on that previous post and for those who have asked for some additional alchemical keys, here is a brief summary and some further information…
In the poems that follow, there are some keys,
That are a part of the process, of alchemy,
So take some time, and read them slow,
And more of the principles, you will then know.
During my 3-day stay at the Castle von Bernus in 1989, my host was the 90 year-old Baroness Isa von Bernus, owner of the estate and widow of Alexander von Bernus who had died in the 1960s. In the early 20th century, Alexander von Bernus was a prolific writer of poems, plays and stories, as well as author of 20 books on alchemy and medicine. He was a successful alchemist following the exact principles and teachings of the alchemists in the 1500s. Von Bernus was in possession of notebooks handed down over hundreds of years.
Although Alexander von Bernus had passed away in the 1965, his vibrations were still potent throughout the castle. Some of the parchments and scrolls within the castle dated to the 1300s. Except for an occasional visit from a housekeeper, the Baroness, her husband and I were alone in the castle.
At the end of three days, I was once again ready to continue my journey, but the Baroness grabbed my arm and pulled me toward her as I was going toward the door of the castle. We walked down a corridor with many doors. The Baroness stopped and pulled out a long key, just like in the movies, and opened a door. It was an office with many journals and books. The Baroness pointed to a chair and she and I sat quietly for twenty minutes.
My associate Heidi, who picked me up, told me that the office of Alexander von Bernus was left exactly as it was when he passed away in 1965. Heidi, who grew up in the surrounding area of the castle, was a friend of the Baroness and remarked that she had never heard of anyone, other than the Baroness, entering the office since her husband’s death.
That night I returned to Stuttgart and I slept in the attic of one of my associate’s home. During the night I heard the floor creaking and I said, who is there? I heard a real voice say, ‘Von Bernus is here.’ The following morning I shared my experience with Heidi. Heidi called the Baroness, but before she could speak, the Baroness told Heidi about her husband’s visit. The Baroness said, ‘Steven visited our castle and my husband visited Steven to reiterate that life continues even after one crosses through the veil.’
All the experiences, I did relate,
Really took place, at the von Bernus estate.
The physical aspects, of the castle you see,
Will eventually fade away, and no longer be,
But the wisdom it houses, some truths that are there,
Have existed forever, and can be found everywhere.
Philosophers give wisdom, which is housed in their frame,
They didn’t invent it, despite all their fame.
My experiences were many, each pointed the way,
That what you desire, can manifest each day.
The heartbeat of matter, is spirit you see,
To reach this awareness, just use this key,
Look for the inner, the driving force,
It is the handiwork of God, your spirit of course.
Now you must imagine clearly, and keep it in thought,
And have certain faith, you will manifest what is sought,
Your image will manifest, based on the strength of your will,
Have patience to wait, until it is physically fulfilled.
For each there’s a pathway,
So seek it each day,
It might become visible,
At work or at play.
Life is a schoolroom, lessons to learn,
Competing with others, should not be your concern.
Locate the pathway, and you will find,
Your journey inward, leads to peace of mind.
Courage to dare, thoughts Do create,
Begin through desire, then have patience to wait.
Elements find, their pattern from Mind,
Then the clusters form, into different kinds.
The proper frequency acts, as a band of glue,
To produce a form, which may appear to be new.
But what manifests now, in a physical earth place,
Existed in form, in another dimensional space.
To be in service, beautifies the heart,
And greater love arrives, to play its part.
Opening the mind, to greater capabilities,
Will be demonstrated by your actions, for all to see.
And when you are humble, like a child at play,
Nature shares all her wisdom, each and every day.
Seek what more is possible. Make no boundaries. Live, love, laugh and be in joy knowing that you are capable of attaining what you imagine.
To inspire and empower with love, in love and through love.
