The Doctrine of Correspondence
The Doctrine of Correspondence is a primary principle of Alchemy that has been around for centuries. It's still considered to be "esoteric knowledge," because so few people understand it, and even fewer know how to really apply it. In communication, the principle functions in very much the same way as Jesus did when he spoke in parables to the people he taught. He would say to them: "The Kingdom of heaven is like............" and he would compare something INTANGIBLE to something that his students could see and touch. In this way, he created a CORRESPONDENCE between the two realities.
Even so, The Doctrine of Correspondence gives in-SIGHT about people, places and things that exist where SEEING is limited or impossible altogether. It teaches: "This is to this, what that is to that," and by using it, we develop eyes that can see in the "dark."
In "Biological Warfare, a Spirit Perspective," the Guides talk in this way about the changes that are happening on Planet Earth:
"In a very real way, the shift from Third Dimensional Thinking to what is called 'Multidimensional Thinking' is the core of that Transformation. In your Biblical literature, that change is described as occurring "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye." My Dear Friends, the "twinkling" is a SHIFT OF PERCEPTION that occurs when your definition of who you are changes from the limitation self to a fuller comprehension of your Expanded Self and your relationship to all existence everywhere. And the only change that ever occurs is one of viewpoint.
Your reality is full of holographic images of you and your Expanded Self. When looked at from a contracted and separated point of view--the smaller image appears to be alone and isolated. However, when you step back and shift perspective, the image becomes a building block for an even larger version of that same idea. What seems to be one picture, from a certain viewpoint, suddenly expands, "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye." Each viewpoint is true and correct. They simply represent life, happening at different speeds, functioning from different perspectives.
We began our discussion with mention of that famous axiom "As above, so below." This phrase is a cornerstone of many powerful spiritual teachings, including what you have called "The Lord's Prayer." When you repeated those famous words--- "on earth as it is in heaven"--- you were invoking The Reconnection to occur. And now, as you asked, it is about to happen for you.
From the Spirit Plane, "new" ideas are literally FLOODING into the conscious and sub-conscious mind. These ideas, which are the embodiment of what you have called "grace," expand and challenge every previous definition you ever had of yourselves. In the mind, these present themselves to you as dreams, visions, and magical cognitions. In the physical body, they are manifest as energy surges, immune reactions, and radical micro-organisms. As the vibrations increase (and the mandate for transformation accelerates), some of these strains will become "Super Viruses," and they will be able to resist any effort that is made to do away with them.
Meanwhile, your Spiritual Immune System, what we have called "The Veil of Forgetfulness" is also rapidly deteriorating. This is not happening because you are being overpowered by some "attacker," but because of the fact that---once you integrate this "attacker" into the rest of your definition of who and what you are--there will be such strength that you will no longer need protection.
Shifting our holographic symbology to the healing process that is happening with the Planet, we see that the Earth's Immune System, what you call the Ozone Layer, is also eroding at an amazing rate. Consequently, more "sunlight" is entering your experience than ever before. Are you getting our drift here?"
As you can see, Correspondence is a favorite communication tool for the Reconnections as well.
One side of humanity's current debate, concerning the Iraqi War, says that "There are people in the world who are brewing up "weapons of mass destruction," namely: viruses, bacteria, and the like, and we have to stop those people from spreading these "germs" around the planet.
In the transmission, the Reconnections compared biological "viruses" to new ideas, that are now coming into an old mind. Using the computer application of the term, a "virus" that is dropped into a database tends to muck up "normal" operations of the data, thereby forcing the owner of the machine to:
(a) Kill or Extract the Virus from out of the program.
(b) Change the program to match its newly "mutated" form.
Indeed, the spreading of NEW IDEAS can be a threat to many people. During the time of our military engagement in Afghanistan, one comedian said: "I know how we can really DESTROY the Taliban. We just go into their society and SEND THEIR WOMEN TO SCHOOL!" Har. Har. Funny, guys. But hey............there is some truth to that, you know.
How many household "systems" on this planet would be seriously MUCKED UP if Mother was given the power and support to make changes in her life, and the lives of her children............being given an EQUAL VOICE with the Father in those households? Or how about the reverse? How many men are being run by manipulative, controlling wives, and they have lost their own will and control about how things happen for them?
And this is just ONE ARENA in which the inner war is being played out.
The Guides have even challenged the expression: "Weapons of Mass Destruction." They go on to say................What's so bad about destroying "mass?" What makes you think that your pristine etheric essence is being properly served by being weighed down, bogged down, with fears, details, and MASSIVE RESPONSIBILITIES. How many of us feel like our bodies, our lives, and our PLANET could stand to lose a little "mass?"
The Guides conclude the study with these words:
