The Five Fundamental Attunements

 

By George A. Boyd ©2003

The five fundamental attunements are an essential part of spiritual ministry in different spiritual groups. They are attunements with the 1) Physical, 2) Etheric, 3) Emotional (Astral), 4) Mental and 5) Volitional octaves of the personality. These attunements are done differently by the Mudrashram® Tradition for the first four octaves than ministry of Christian or Western Esoteric groups. Moreover, it may be noted that the Christian and Western Esoteric groups introduce a wide variety of attunements for the mental and emotional octaves. These ministerial variants for attunement are shown below:

Personality Octave

Mudrashram® Tradition

Christian/Western Esoteric

Physical Body

Physical Seed Atom

Anchoring the Spirit in the physical heart

Etheric

Lower Etheric Seed Atom, opening and energizing each of the meridians in the Etheric Body in the Metaconscious Mind

Etheric Chakras of the Subconscious Mind

Emotional (Astral)

Core of emotional pain in the personal unconscious

Variations exist (depending on the group). Attunements may be with the 1) Feeling center of the Conscious Mind (enthusiasm, faith, pride), 2) Ego (purification of negative attitudes), 3) Memory center, Subconscious Mind (reliving and release of life issues through confession and repentance), 4) Core of emotional pain in the personal unconscious, 5) Thalamic center of the astral body (visions of heavenly realms, inspiration, activation of psychic powers), 6) Commitment center of the Desire Body in the Metaconscious Mind (public confession of faith, taking sacred vows), 7) Spirit of the third path (inspiring devotion, prayer and worship).

Mental

Seed Atom of the Intellect in the Metaconscious Mind, attunement comes through wisdom aspect of the Soul

Seed Atom of the Intellect in the Metaconscious Mind, attunement comes from 1) Universal Mind (Science of Mind), 2) Heavenly Light in the Psychic Realm (Mormon, Spiritualist), healing traditions like Reiki), 3) Flame of the Spirit (exoteric 1st Planetary, gives rise to prophecy and other gifts of the Spirit), 4) Holy Spirit anchored in the Moon Soul (exoteric and mesoteric 1st Planetary, produces a sense of intimate personal communion with God), 5) The Light Beam of a Hierophant (esoteric 1st Planetary, reveals the symbols and archetypes of a mystery school), 6) The Light Beam of an Ascended Master (2nd Planetary), 7) Wisdom aspect of the Soul

Volitional

Divine Will center with the human will (volitional center of the Metaconscious Mind)

Divine Will center with the human will (volitional center of the Metaconscious Mind)

In each case, this attunement is sent from an anointed disciple or initiate to the attentional principle of the individual doing the attunement. The individual doing the attunement is directed to send this Light to discrete focal points in the five bodies of the individuals receiving ministry.

Which focal points are selected for attunement is a function of the teachings of the group. For example, at the emotional octave, prosperity-oriented teachings activate the feeling center of the Conscious Mind. Groups emphasizing righteousness and character reformation may focus on ministry to the ego. Those groups that underscore evangelism may send the Light to the memory center in order to evoke memories of shameful actions and bring the conviction of sin. This may in turn be coupled with an attunement with the Desire body, leading the individual to make a public conviction of faith. The core of emotional pain is used to grant comfort, forgiveness and unburdening of the heart. Psychic Realm teachings may activate the astral eye or awaken the spirit.

When attending services in which the minister or clergy person invokes the Divine through prayer and during which you sense the ministry of the Spirit: observe which bodies and octaves are infused in you by this ministry. This will give you a clue as to how those who are sending through the Light are making attunements with you.

In time, you will learn how to make each of these attunements and to differentiate their actions on those to whom you minister. Primary to being able to do these ministerial attunements is to find a disciple or Initiate who is teaching others how to do them. For example, the Reiki School of healing is well known for teaching how to make a healing attunement with others.

We teach the five fundamental attunements in our Agni Yoga/Attunement meditation workshop, and participants in our Light Sittings are also trained in their use during the teaching portion of these sessions. We encourage you to minister the Light and make these attunements. They are fundamental to your disciplic preparation and will allow you to participate in working with the Great White Brotherhood in uplifting and ennobling humanity.
