In my first article Conclusion of… and in my second video (transcription: here) I stated that according to Rudolf Steiner Lucifer can be positive, if his power works on his own field: the spiritual field. And that Satan can also be positive, if his power works on his own field: the material field. Steiner states that they can also be negative. That is, if they work in the opposite field. I thought that by ‘opposite field’ he meant: ‘spiritual’ versus ‘material’, but maybe he meant ‘expansion’ versus ‘compression’! So then we have, for instance, a negative compression, in which the connection with one’s own core is blocked by all kinds of boundaries and rules of someone else. Or a negative expansion in which one’s own core fights someone else’s core.
So I described this negative compression in my first article as “Satanic compression working on the Luciferic (spiritual) field.” Usually when I talk about Satan, I mean this force. But you might also call this force ‘negative Lucifer’ or ‘negative Luciferic compression’, if you then call the force I describe below ‘negative Satan’. After all, Lucifer is usually about expansion.
I described the negative expansion in my first article as ‘Luciferic expansion working on the Satanic (material) field’. When I talk about ‘Lucifer’, I am talking about this force. But you might also call this force ‘negative Satan’ or ‘negative Satanic expansion’, if you have called the previous one ‘negative Lucifer’. After all, Satan is usually about compression.
This also explains the lack of distinction between Lucifer and Satan and their interchangeability, which you see a lot when people talk about these forces. So that is because they work on each other’s fields.
So you can, and this coincides with my experience, expand both with positive feelings and with negative feelings. And you can compress in a positive way as well as in a negative way. So what I call positive in this story are the internal forces, which do not fight either one’s own core or another one’s core. What I call negative here are the forces acting on the external, which either fight one’s own core or the core of another. You can take the labels positive/negative with a grain of salt. Because actually they are all neutral. And you can drift to the negative side in all of them, if they are not balanced among each other. So the forces that work on the external should not be avoided to be developed because you think they are negative and you want to stay away from them. They should be integrated into the personality just as much as the positive, internal forces.
If we take the torus with two vortexes in it (Image), which is the self-organizing form into which the waves that make up our reality flow, both in the smallest particles and in the electromagnetic field of humans, as well as in the electromagnetic field of the Earth (this all fits together like nested fractals), then it can thus be divided into 4 parts. Each part of this torus shape stands for an element and a wind direction (think also of the 4 wind directions in the Bible). Christ Consciousness is integrating all 4 elements in yourself (you being the Child) + making contact with both the Soul (Earth + Water = higher feeling) (developed when you (the Child) are honoring your Mother) and your Spirit (Air + Fire = higher thinking) (developed when you (the Child) are honoring your Father).
So you have to become like a child to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, as stated in Gospel of Matthew (18:2-4):
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.“
We can thus make the following overview:
North = positive compression = Earth = perceiving = upper internal vortex in the torus
South = negative expansion = Fire = doing = external upper part of the torus
West = negative compression = Water = feeling = external lower part of the torus
East = positive expansion = Air = thinking = lower internal vortex in the torus
If the evil forces working on humans succeed in getting you off your path, then in the first place, we ourselves are responsible for that. Unfortunately, not everyone has experienced the soft teachers of the three evil forces (Lucifer, Satan and Antichrist), who are actually the Holy Spirit, the Father, and the Son! And they are essential to keep you on the right path and to be up to the influence of those evil forces. That’s why it’s important to teach that to as many people as possible. So first you have to learn how to deal with boundaries (by which you overcome negative Lucifer), then how to deal with anger (by which you overcome negative Satan), and then you have to learn how to deal with disapproval of your core (by which you overcome the negative Antichrist). You will meet the hard teachers when you’ve failed to listen to the soft teachers. You can find more info on this in the article Bad loser? or in my Conclusion of….
You can learn to embrace Lucifer and Satan with love as you develop. These evils are only evil for the undeveloped mind. But real evil is that of the Antichrist. It is important that humanity does not follow the example of these entities by proceeding to kill these beings, but instead chooses the middle way between Lucifer and Satan, and when confronted with the Antichrist is willing to give up his life as the servant of Christ, who thus faces these Antichrist entities (Image). The paradox is that you are then protected against these entities and they won’t harm you then. A beautiful and appropriate biblical text is the following:
Gospel of Luke, Take Up the Cross and Follow Him (9:23-27):
Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels. But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.”
Evil creates good of equal strength, and good creates evil of equal strength. In the following way:
Positive expansion (Air) -develops-> positive compression (Earth)
Negative compression (Water) -develops-> negative expansion (Fire)
Negative expansion (Fire) -develops-> negative compression (Water)
Positive compression (Earth) -develops-> positive expansion (Air)
Because a trauma had been overlooked in my therapy process, I came, after I for a while had been rid of it, face to face with my trauma again, a trauma towards aggressive, anger disapproving people (which had begun once with my father), which caused me to resist the power I attributed to him for years. As a result, I could not honor him, nor could I honor women (which had begun once with my mother, who regularly let us walk over her). This was the reason I had to face several forces (in the form of my female colleagues who were taken over, of whom I did not yet know they were taken over), who taught me to honor my mother even when she was negative towards me. Whoever does not honor his mother, and thus does not make contact with the Soul (higher feeling = inward movement), can become a psychopath. Next, I still had to learn to honor my father. Those who do not honor their father and thus do not make contact with the Spirit (higher thinking = outward expression), and who therefore produces nothing, can have the Antichrist entities facing him, especially if you have become insensitive to the Satanic entities. My Fire was triggered and I went all-in with my first article. By listening to the reactions of my family who were taken over, who at the time were behaving very strangely and disapprovingly towards me (which I wasn’t used to, as I had long since taught them to stop doing that), I slowly learned to honor my father, even though he had been very aggressive and disapproving towards me at too young an age (which is Antichrist energy). My only problem now is that although I do connect with my Soul and Spirit now, my natural urges and instincts are very suppressed by the trauma and it is a real fight every day not to become passive or discouraged. In this respect, the energy cannot flow freely and I am in a terrible prison. For this reason, the Antichrist entities are acting very nice to me now. It is important for me, however, to keep showing my connection with Spirit (higher thinking = producing something) and thus keep on writing articles or making video’s, then there won’t be any more danger. I’m definitely going to keep doing that! I’m just unsure if it will be enough. But my succesful nigredo (blackening, the first phase of inner alchemy) which I experienced in my past, makes sure I can keep doing what I’m doing, although I wasn’t succesful in keeping the essence of this blackened state, when I developed further. Hence the prison I’m in.
If you want a detailed explanation of energetics and human psychology among lots of other subjects, I can certainly recommend the fantastic works of Johan Oldenkamp. His video course is very well worth it.
