Etheric Centres and Disease
The lower centres are active in the undeveloped with the solar plexus very active in the average individual. The higher centres only become active when transference to the higher from the lower centres is in process and importantly, from the soul into these higher centres via the centre at the top of the head. The head centre may produce a certain hyper tension according to DK.
The heart and nervous diseases are prevalent very much today and are easily researched. It is true to say that the development of the lower psychic faculties appear with the astral centre awakening or certainly a recapitulation from past lives perhaps. It is however a sign of retrogression if perpetuated.
In advanced man the awakening heart centre can bring much trouble in this area with correct rhythm being of particular note today. This has an exoteric physical plane correspondence for the individual as would be obvious. It is said that the awakening heart problems suffered by the business person feeling the responsibility of his group and employees.
The integrating personality is a consequence of this centre becoming stimulated and DK informs us of the problematic effect in that region i.e. even migraine or hearing or severe eye problems may occur. The Tibetan recommends leaving off of whatever med or study may be thought the cause, for a period of a few days and then to gradually continue adjusting for safe procedure.
The non esotericist [but definitely a disciple] that has an integrating personality will have to adjust daily life circumstances to best effect. That’s life experience though, in handling of energy. The throat region can bring its own particular disease so prevalent today that being problems with the thyroid gland. This gland controls how fast or slowly or perfectly the body is able to use energy. Activity being under or over the mean will result in an unregulated man or one that has a cyclic activity peculiar to the norm being creative in running around on the physical plane achieving little or at least not what they should be due to under or over stimulation. Many other physical hormonal effects result due to breakdown of their own cycles, proposed.
The throat/thyroid also conditions the blood with hormonal production, “the blood is the life.” The problems caused by the solar plexus are legion as we know and most common today in the mass of humanity. There is a caution well warranted about the purposeful awakening of the Kundalini. Also, sacral over stimulation is a main approach or line of attack by the dark brothers, with all its issues relating to sex. This is evident in the world today. JPC.
The Ingestion of Minerals and Vitamins
The ingestion of minerals is counter to occult law due to their having the wrong deva make-up and karma for us, we are told. Minerals were and are used all around the world and also as western mineral supplements extensively used today. The eating of meat and mineral supplements will cause particularly bad vibrations as we can see. At end of post I have included an older paper on this.
DK has advised that a definite combination of vitamins alone and therefore without the devitalised and unnecessary added minerals as they are detrimental. A study of his teachings on the etheric body will indicate to us that it is the etheric body that draws the skeletal frame to it for instance, and that the only way to vitalise the etheric body is through vitamins.
The co-mingling of substances is a great error of humanity in general and has also produced materials never intended. The plant intake of minerals is secondary to the intake of solar prana and the mineral intake of the human is only allowed via the ingestion of the vegetable kingdom under karmic law.
The ingestion and mixing of the animal and mineral devas via heat and chemical combustion has resulted in a “peculiar condition” for them. DK emphasises a healthy diet and gives us elsewhere the actual food products that will provide a balanced vitamin intake and a natural mineral intake via the natural food product. Vitamin supplements appear suggested also. JPC.
“One of the great errors into which the human family has fallen has been the endeavour to administer mineral drugs to man for medicinal purposes. It has resulted in a combination of deva substances which was never intended. The relation of man to the lower kingdoms, and particularly to the animal and mineral, has brought about a peculiar condition in the deva world and has tended to complicate devaevolution. The use of animal food (and the use of minerals as medicine in a lesser degree) has produced a commingling of deva substance, and of vibrations which are not attuned to each other.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire (pp. 645-6) AAB.

The Chinese have been innovative for millennia, providing the world with paper, the printing press, gunpowder and the compass. China also has developed, largely by trial and error, a traditional system of medicine that has been used by billions of patients. Despite the enormous population that has been, and still is, served by this system the rest of the world has been very hesitant to accept that it has much to offer. Slowly, acupuncture is growing in acceptability. So, too, are the use of certain Chinese herbs, such as ginseng. Nevertheless, it seems logical to expect that much more can be gained from the open-minded, yet scientific, evaluation of Chinese medicines. This article is a tentative step in this direction. Its brief descriptions of the more commonly used stone drugs are designed to encourage their further evaluation and to raise the possibility that they may have potential far beyond their use in traditional Chinese medicine.
The majority of Chinese stone drugs are naturally occurring minerals, such as pyrite (Pyritum) or cinnabar (Cinnabaris). However, some are manufactured by the processing of minerals. Included in this second group are mirabilite (Mirabilitum Depuratum) and calomel (Calomelas). In addition, a few stone drugs consist of animal fossils. These are often referred to by the Chinese as dragon’s teeth (Dens Draconis), or dragon’s bones (Os Draconis).
Some traditional Chinese stone drug treatments involve potentially toxic minerals such as minium (Minium), which has a high lead content; cinnabar (Cinnabaris) and calomel (Calomelas) that contain mercury; and realgar (Realgar) which is rich in arsenic. However, because overdoses of these substances easily can produce serious adverse side effects, their medical use is not promoted here. Indeed, it is recommended

strongly that readers avoid all attempts at self-diagnosis and treatment. Chinese stone drugs, like Western drugs, should be taken only on the advice of a well-trained and certified physician.
Origins of stone drugs
Most stone drugs or, as they are often called, mineral drugs, are composed of inorganic compounds, although amber (Succinum), fossilized tree resin, is an exception to this general rule. So, too, is cowbezoar (Calculus Bovis), produced from stones found in the gallbladder of the domestic cow. Typically mineral drugs, however, are formed by a variety of geological and geomorphological processes that result in aggregates of several minerals. This is not invariably true, since single crystals of white quartz are also used in traditional Chinese medicine (Yang, 1990).
Minerals that are of value as drugs are formed under a wide variety of geological conditions in many types of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary environments. They are created also in hydrothermal replacement deposits and in veins (Chesterman and Lowe, 1978; Deer et al, 1992). To illustrate, many minerals are formed when igneous rocks slowly crystallize from molten magma. Some of these are rich in trace elements that are essential to humans, such as selenium, nickel, vanadium and cobalt. Magnetite (Magnetium), from such sources, for example, is often enriched with vanadium. Pegmatites, igneous rocks with extremely large grains, frequently contain well-formed minerals that include various rarer elements such as beryllium, lithium, rubidium, zirconium and cesium, some of which are known to impact on human well-being (Kirschmann and Dunne, 1984). To illustrate, mica (Muscovitum), derived from pegmatites and used as a stone drug, is usually enriched with lithium and zirconium.
Many useful mineral drugs also are produced in hydrothermal veins, that is in joints and fractures that are filled with minerals precipitated from hot water. Most such hydrothermal deposits are associated with igneous intrusions, large bodies of underground magma. They usually include sulphides of numerous metals such as those of iron (pyrite), lead (galena), zinc (sphalerite), mercury (cinnabar) and copper (covellite, chalcocite and chalcopyrite). Specific elements are more common in minerals precipitated at particular temperatures. To illustrate, quartz which is deposited from moderate temperature solutions tends to be enriched with tungsten and tin, while cinnabar which is formed at lower temperatures may contain lead, silver and silicon.
Some stone drugs such as pumice (Pumez), a form of volcanic glass containing abundant feldspars and quartz, are produced during volcanic eruptions. White rocksalt (Salammoniac) also is found in volcanic environments.
Several significant Chinese stone drugs are formed by regional metamorphism, associated with high temperatures and pressures, which transforms deeply buried rocks of every type. Such metamorphism leads to the recry stallization of minerals and enlargement of crystals. Both chloriteschist (Lapis Chloriti) and actinolite (Actinolitum) are metamorphic rocks produced in this manner that are used in traditional Chinese medicine as drugs.
Contact metamorphism occurs on a smaller scale and results in the alteration of rocks that are near the margins of igneous intrusions. Recrystallization and the formation of new minerals also can occur in such environments. Stone drugs that are associated with contact metamorphism include ophicalcite (Ophicalcitum), magnetite (Magnetium) and actinolite (Actinolitum).
Many stone drugs are formed also in sedimentary environments. Pyrolusite (Pyrolusitum) and hematite (Ochra Haematitum), for example, are colloidal sedimentary minerals that are widely used in Chinese medicine. Coral calcite (Corallium), created by coral polyps by abstracting calcium from sea water, is an example of a biochemical sedimentary mineral that is used as a drug. Gypsum (Gypsum Fibrosum) and halite (Halitum), chemical sedimentary minerals, precipitated by supersaturated solutions, such as those formed in desiccating salt lakes also are used medicinally. In addition, some fossils are utilized as stone drugs. These include fossilized mammal bones, known to the Chinese as dragon’s bones (Os Draconic), in which all soft tissues have been transformed, being replaced by either calcium carbonate, or clay minerals (Zhang, 1988; Yang, 1990).
There are two kinds of minerals: macrominerals and trace minerals. Macrominerals are minerals your body needs in larger amounts. They include calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride and sulfur. Your body needs just small amounts of trace minerals. These include iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride and selenium.
The best way to get the minerals your body needs is by eating a wide variety of foods. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a mineral supplement.
Class 3. A group who form the health auras of all the three middle kingdoms of nature (vegetable, animal and human) either collectively or individually. Man is coming into contact with them along medical lines and beginning somewhat to recognise them. One of the great errors into which the human family has fallen has been the endeavour to administer mineral drugs to man for medicinal purposes. It has resulted in a combination of deva substances which was never intended. The relation of man to the lower kingdoms, and particularly to the animal and mineral, has brought about a peculiar condition in the deva world and has tended to complicate deva evolution. The use of animal food (and the use of minerals as medicine in a lesser degree) has produced a commingling of deva substance, and of vibrations which are not attuned to each other. The vegetable kingdom is in a totally different situation, and part of its karma has lain in the providing of food for man; this has resulted in a needed transmutation of the life of that kingdom into the higher stage (the animal) which is its goal. The transmutation of vegetable life takes place necessarily on the physical plane. Hence its availability as food. The transmutation of the life of the animal into the human kingdom takes place on kamamanasic levels. Hence the non-availability, esoterically understood, of the animal as food for man. This is an argument for vegetarian living which needs due consideration. TCF 645/6.
DK wisely and clearly suggests, that the administering into the physical body a combination of mineral/chemical formula of elements in the form of drugs/tablets for purposes of a medicinal and therefore possible health improvement reasons was and I think still is never the intention of the deva elementals which constitute the mineral kingdom, other than the naturally occurring elements contained within food and water.
It is the etheric magnetic urge which attracts the needed minerals which go to the formation of the skeletal structure. Minerals are not meant to be ingested in any other way as it is against their purpose and karma.
Pharmaceutical drugs which contain complexities of mineral/metal and chemical combinations are used against karmic law and make such combinations of deva substance which, as DK states, was never intended. The attempt at the formulation of such unintended devic combination, mineral, metallic and chemical will have due karmic effects also resulting in serious side effects often recognised and described in modern research. Great caution is given regarding such effects as devas when wrongly in contact burn substance, this is an occult law and even if this is not consciously recognised or considered the results of such burning or destruction, mild or severe, have repercussions upon the physical/etheric and emotional vehicles.
Often such damage is not apparent or understood and seen. Any adverse ill effects are due to the further destruction of the psychic energy and devic substance of the centres. DK clearly states that the animal kingdom draws its mineral content only from the naturally accrued content of the vegetable kingdom and should not draw it as direct from the mineral kingdom, the vegetable kingdom being a more advanced and sublimated and occultly ordered method of assimilation.
Man requires prana from the sun either directly or via the vegetable kingdom or as the vitality of vitamin supplements, if there is the requirement for added vitality in the etheric mechanism, but not mineral ones such as are mined from shale and bentonite ores for the production of pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals, packed out with plant matter devoid of prana. This should now be apparent.
Therefore, it should now be considered just why medicinal drugs [generally speaking] are injurious to the organism called man. Mankind draws his vitality from the animals early on and primarily from the vegetables later, and from the sun and water. This is the reason that homoeopathic medicine is considered by DK as being conducive to the healthful vitality and so increasing of the psychic energy of the etheric body, due to the solar origin of the prana.
Carbon, as a base petrol chemical multi compound
If we approach the question from the stance that all is energy and therefore vibration, DK already gives us a hint that may tell us the vibration or state of livingness of the mineral kingdom is not synchronous as far as any constructive healing for the human kingdom is concerned. Minerals lost long ago their vital supply of prana, with a few exceptions, and under karmic law this has now passed to the vegetable kingdom. Mineral drugs are essentially of such a low vibration that they do not have an adequate supply of solar prana or vitality to be of any beneficial use to the human hierarchy. Keep in mind that it is only the inherent supply of vitality or life aspect that is able to impart any heightened electrical or energetic charge which could possibly raise the vibrational level or overall energy of the individual or of the diseased or ailing area so affected.
