Modern Mystery School training teaches a person how to create in the actual structures of the universe -- the true flows of creative energy that are a subtle part of our everyday life. If everyone had this training at a young age, towards the end of high school for example, we would live in a world where everybody knew how to create a meaningful life for themselves.
What this might look like on short order would be an entire society of people never entering or living in the matrix of expectations, programming, repetitive dramas and habits of mind.
Modern Mystery School Initiation is a first definitive stage of training to do this. Through Empower Thyself (first step) Initiation, a person begins a new way of processing their issues and eliminating their negative ego. They begin to flow their personal will in a positive, creative way; whereas prior to initiation the human will flows negatively -- we observe this in knowing that something is good for us ("I should really stop smoking"; "I really need to express my creative / artistic side"; "I really need to find a new relationship and stop abusing myself in my current one", etc...) -- but we don't take action on it. Possibilities are often seen by us on a level of what we know is true but we simply don't act and we stay in the same patterns over and over again. We often don't even realize this is happening. Indeed, when we are most in the dark about our issues we don't think we have them.
By changing the flow of the personal will (the aspect of us which makes the decisions and takes the actions) to positive -- permanently, as only this initiation can do -- we begin to see everything in our life as a challenge and lesson to be learned so we can step into more joy. We become stronger and more in tune with what we really need. From this increased place of strength and inner knowing, we are progressively over time more and more empowered to know what is right for us without making another person or thing wrong, and to stand up for what we know is right for us. This is a big shift in human behavior from the norm we currently witness running our world. Too many people do what they are told or what is expected of them, rather than live their passion.
Empower Thyself Initiation would be an incredible blessing, therefore, to receive in the late teenage years -- when a person is mature enough to decide what they want with their own free will, and yet hasn't become jaded with the difficulties of living with the human negative flow of will.
Nonetheless, we must begin from where we are, and if you are 30, 40, 50, or 60+ years old it is never too late to begin a new and positive creative flow and attunement in your life. Initiation has helped thousands and thousands of initiates over the past 3,000 years (and many more in the past 16 years since becoming accessible to the public in 1997) to live with greater purpose, passion, and joy.
