The Arc of the Covenant
I am an avid crossword fan – especially good at clueless crosswords where regular clues are replaced with a number code. As you do these puzzles on a regular basis you become very observant of the number patterns and you a develop a ‘knowing’ of where to start, and an instant ‘knowing’ when you have taken a wrong tack.
I believe we come here with a type of mnemonic system imprinted on every cell of the body, and that as we develop Spiritually those memories of Who and What we are, are recalled with the activation of this system. What activates the system? It is a combination of the vibrational level of the body as the chakra system comes into higher activation, plus the sum total of your life experiences, and knowledge gained along the way. The more diversified the knowledge, the more ‘clues’ you are being given – so here is the importance of an open mind and heart, and being willing to learn from every source that presents itself to you.
I believe that the Bible holds all the answers – not when it is read in a literal sense – but when it is read from a sense of searching out the clues and finding the hidden truths that the many, many words conceal. As I have previously explained, the Bible vibrates on three different levels – the human level, where the literal reading will give the answer you require. The Spiritual level – where you will recognize the hidden symbolic meaning, and finally the Divine Level - which gives you the highest understanding of the whole story, not just isolated quotes, which can be misleading.
Through experience we have found that Spirit do not ‘hand it to you on a plate’. They give you the prompts, or clues, and then YOU must do the groundwork – we have been given the intelligence and reasoning and intuitive powers, so in other words, USE them!
I was recently given a project by Spirit to read Exodus, chapter 40 and to take particular note of the Tent that Moses built to house the Arc of the Covenant, also 1 Kings, chapter 6 describing the Temple that Solomon built to later give the Arc a permanent home.
Great detail is given of layout, dimensions, furnishings, etc – and hidden amongst them I realized that, again, just as in the Book of Revelations, they are describing parts of the human brain!
The descriptions of the curtains in the Tent:
‘fine linen woven in
blue, purple and red,
embroidered with figures of winged creatures’
led me directly to the pituitary gland because there is a photograph in ‘Behold Man’ by Lennert Nilsson
in those exact colour tones
, of the pituitary suspended in the saddle-shaped bone, the sella turcica – part of the sphenoid bone at the very
of the skull. In both the descriptions of the Tent and the Temple the Holy of Holies that housed the Arc was built at the
of the structures.
Exodus describes that the altar in the Holy of Holies has
proportions – as does the dorsum sellae in the sphenoid bone configuration.
In both Exodus and 1 Kings it describes two winged creatures that were placed above the covenant box –
‘Each had two wings. Two of their outstretched wings touched each other in the middle of the room and the other two wings touched the walls’
confirmed I was looking at the right place in the brain for
‘The sphenoid bone is bat-shaped, and looking at it face on it appears to have two pairs of wings.’
The pituitary is housed within the sphenoid structure and is suspended above the cube-shaped bone – just as the winged creatures are placed over the square altar.
PICTURE OF SPHENOID
With reference to the many winged creatures featured in the decoration of both the Tent and the Temple – when you see the formations of the cranial bones there are the shapes of the bat (the sphenoid) and the butterfly (the cranial fossai), in the nervous system formations at the base of the brain, and in the ventricle systems. (There will be reference to the Shaman understanding of the bat and the butterfly further on).
So now, with the help of the exquisite detail of Gray’s Anatomy (G.A) and the photographs of Behold Man (B.M), let’s explore the Temple and the Tent as described in the Bible.
The walls of the Temple had (1)

narrower on the outside than on the inside
DIAGRAM OF OPTIC NERVES
The lesser wing is connected to the side of the body by two roots. Near its junction with the body, a small tubercle for the attachment of the common tendon of origin of
of the muscles of the eye. Between the two roots is the optic foramen, for the transmission of the optic nerve and ophthalmic artery.
So, with two sets of three branches (one set to each eye) plus the ‘shaft’ – the foramen – we have the shape of the lampstand.
Another part of the Temple description is (1).
wood at the entrance of The Most Holy
the top of the doorway was
a pointed arch.
NOTE: We are also learning that the middle layer of the brain coverings, called the arachnoid web (because it resembles a spider web) is our direct contact with, what Kryon calls, the Cosmic Lattice – a similar energy structure around the earth. This can only be tuned into when you reach a certain level of vibration, which involves the activation of several higher chakra centres.
The entrance room to Solomon’s Temple we linked to the midbrain: (G.A). The constricted portion of the brain which connects the pons varolii with the inter-brain and hemispheres and hence it is frequently called isthmus cerebri. It is developed from the third ventrical, the cavity of which becomes the aqueduct of Sylvius – which told us the position of the ‘wash basin between the Tent and the altar filled with water’.
In 1 Kings, For the entrance to the main room a (rectangular) doorframe of olive wood. There were double folding doors for the temple posts made of fir.
Exodus describes a second altar for sacrifices situated in the main Tent, all covered in gold, and the photograph in
‘Behold Man’ that features the corpora quadrigemina, which lie before the pineal, is in gold tones! The pineal is cone-shaped, hence the clue of doors made from fir.
CORPORA QUADRIGEMINA AND PINEAL
(B.M). The pineal protrudes from the dorsal midline of the third ventricle (the washbasin!). It secretes melatonin and is an endocrine gland. It contributes to setting the timing of the body’s biological clock.
Spirit gave me a writing to further clarify this:
The Spiritual activation of the pineal brings the body out of its unaware ‘sleep’ to aware ‘wakefulness’. It activates a new chemical that sweeps through the body systems awakening new life therein and bringing the physicality to a new Divine level of health. The brain also springs into new levels of activation – which also affects the whole body – bringing it to a much higher, finer level of vibration, giving it new, different abilities. As the terminology shows – you are made anew and the body comes into its full potential.
Exodus 40:9 Then dedicate the Tent and all its equipment by anointing it with the sacred oil and it will be holy. Next, dedicate the altar and all its equipment by anointing it, and it will be completely holy. Also dedicate the washbasin and its base in the same way.
What can that mean?
Gopi Krishna claims that ‘with the awakening of Kundalini an amazing activity commences in the whole nervous system, from the crown of the head to the toes. The body is now transformed into a miniature laboratory, working at high speed day and night. The nerves, whose existence is never felt by the normal consciousness, are now forced by some invisible power to a new type of activity, which either immediately or gradually becomes perceptible to the subject.
One last interesting fact about the midbrain – it is the only part of the foetal brain that does not alter in the formation of the baby, and it is the oldest and most primitive region of the brain in evolutionary terms. We have learned that the original cell from which our body is fashioned is held there waiting to take on its higher role once WE start to develop Spiritually.
Why connect the pituitary with the Covenant Box?
An article by Glenn Krawczyk called, ‘Love – Coherent Energy for our Reality Engine’ gave me the clue:
We all know the major role the heart plays in keeping our body functioning, but few of us realise that the heart also secretes a powerful peptide hormone (ANF) which affects various regions of the brain including the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland, which plays a critical role in the release of growth hormones to the body and the control of metabolic function.
The acorn is associated, esoterically, with the Tree of Jupiter, which is about
So when the Seventh Seal is broken – or the curtain in the Tent is rended – to access the Covenant Box these new qualities come into play, affecting the whole body. It is interesting to note in Ex 26:33 it says ‘the curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place’, but the King James version refers to the curtain as a veil.
The Covenant Box held two tablets on which were inscribed the Ten Commandments – the pituitary is a two-lobed structure and secretes ten hormones.
POSITION OF PITUITARY
I referred earlier to the Shamanic interpretation of the Bat and the Butterfly. Let’s bring out the Medicine Cards and see what they say:
BUTTERFLY – Transformation:
There will be many of these cycles in your transformative process until the ULTIMATE one, which involves a new role for the pituitary gland.
BAT – Rebirth:
Exodus 40:34 – Then the cloud covered the Tent and the dazzling light of the Lord’s presence filled it.
The Funk and Wagnel dictionary defines:
CLOUD – something that darkens, obscures, dims, confuses.
So the true function of the Covenant Box is concealed from us until we are of the right vibration – and that can only be achieved when we (the substance) interact and work with the element (Spirit) to build our own Light potential – thus releasing ‘the dazzling light of the Lord’s presence’ from within ourselves to take us to a higher level of awareness and existence.
The stones of Solomon’s Temple were prepared at the quarry ‘so that there was no noise made by hammers, axes, or any other iron tools as the Temple was being built.’ Just as
foundation stones are forged quietly through awareness and self-transformation as the INNER Temple is built. Solomon’s Temple took seven years to build – and that is the length of time that it takes, even today, for the human body to undergo the Kundalini Initiation.
How does the dictionary define COVENANT?
1. An agreement entered into by two or more persons or parties; a compact
(contract). 2. God’s promise of blessing to be fulfilled on the performance of a condition, as of obedience.
Having put all that together I was finally led, through a reference in a Bishop Spong book, to read a section of Hebrews; there was my proof that the Scriptures hold the clues, but the Spiritual is always hidden until WE start to seek.
(Good News Bible) 8:1 He serves as High Priest in the Most Holy Place, that is, in the real tent, which was put up by the Lord, not man.
9:8 The way into the Most Holy Place has not yet been opened as long as the outer Tent still stands.
(In other words, all human negative traits must be removed before we can access our Holy of Holies)
9:11 It is not a man-made tent, that is, not a part of this created world.
12:18 You have not come as the people of Israel came, to what you can feel, to Mt. Sinai with its blazing fire, the darkness, the gloom, the storm, the blast of a trumpet and the sound of a voice.
(Note: The King James Version reads: Ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, not unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest.)
12:22-24: Instead, you have come to Mt. Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem with its thousands of angels. You have come to the joyful gathering of God’s first-born sons, whose names are written in heaven, and to the spirits of good people made perfect. You have come to Jesus who arranged the new covenant and to the sprinkled blood, which promises much better things than does the blood of Abel.
When you think that the Bible was written well before x-rays and photography within the body – and that we ‘just happened’ to have the medical books in those precise colour tones to help me to piece it together. In addition, the benefit of all the work of all the doctors and surgeons who have put the information together for the layman so that now we ALL can look into the secrets of the body……….I LOVE it!
I believe that the Spiritual activation of the pineal and pituitary glands is the key to each man, with his perfected body, to create his own New Jerusalem, his own heaven on earth. For the more of the spiritual that we recognise and the less of the material that we are deceived by, the more joyful life can become as we recognise and realize the very PERFECTION of it all.
Seek and ye shall find.
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you.
