Masters and Houston – The chalice



Type of Spiritual Experience


Energy being input at this level is to all intents and purposes healing and balancing energy.  You can get the same effects from acupuncture.

Interestingly, even modern visions  have chalices and cups in them.  The lady had taken LSD.


A description of the experience

The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience – Dr Robert Masters and Dr Jean Houston

 “I joined the group who were having a late lunch – there is no time – on the terrace.  A friend asked whether I would like to have something and I said no and made a remark about those historic figures reputed to have lived a life without partaking of food and wondered how this could be.

Instantly I became a vessel.

A  mighty force of energy, sparkling, crystal like and pure came pouring into me.  I remember thinking or saying – this is the pure source of energy.......... the current entered into me – through the fingers first, then coursed through my entire body and all of me seemed electrified.  I felt energised, knew to an overwhelming degree the meaning of regeneration and thought 'this is how it's done'.  Why should this have to go into the earth to be converted to food – to be digested and again converted into energy, when one may have it pure and glorified.  I saw it dissipate itself into the earth and rise with incredible speed into a spiral going up, up, up and then I spoke of the Whirling Dervishes and understood the cosmic meaning of 'all nature dances' and how man and nature merge into one.”
