A very special veneration was rendered to the serpent in the Temple of Quetzalcoatl in Teotihuacán; here we see the rattlesnake chiseled on the unconquered walls of that mysterious sanctuary.

This is the Kundalini, the igneous serpent of our magical powers that Hinduism talks to us about. On this strange stone the Aztecs teach us two things: First, the Kundalini has seven degrees of power; second, the Kundalini is totally sexual.

The Kundalini is the sum total of the seven serpents, two groups of three with the sublime coronation of the seventh tongue of fire which unites us with the One, with the Law, with the Father.

This is related to the septenary constitution of the human being which Theosophy talks to us about.

Therefore, considering these issues under the light of these theosophical truths, we sustain that each organ is septuple in its internal, metaphysical constitution and our spinal column is not an exception; this is also septuple in its constitution.

Seven nervous centers exist along our spinal canal; these are the seven churches to which the Apocalypse (Revelation) of St. John refers.

These seven churches enter into activity with the sexual fire of the Kundalini; this is how the seven fiery serpents respectively open the seven churches in each of our seven bodies.

The Kundalini’s sexual fire awakens with Sexual Magic; yes, in the union of the phallus and the uterus is found the key of its power, on condition that the sacred wine (exiohehari) is never ejaculated, not even a single drop.

Ancient Aztecs practiced Sexual Magic in order to awaken the Kundalini. Couples of man and woman underwent entire months caressing and loving each other and even in sexual connection within the sacred patios of their temples; however, they knew how to control their animal ego in order to repress seminal ejaculation.

Thus, this is how they transmuted their pure waters of life into seminal vapors, and these vapors were transmuted into Christic energies.

Then, these Christic energies were bipolarized into solar and lunar currents which ascended through Ida and Pingala.

When the solar and lunar atoms make contact in the coccygeal bone, the Kundalini, or Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent, awakens.

Seven serpents are represented in the figure of the decapitated man: The first serpent belongs to the physical body; the second serpent to the Ethereal Body; the third to the Astral body; the fourth to the Mental body; the fifth to the Body of Willpower; the sixth to the Body of the Counsciousness; the seventh to the Innermost, our real inner Being.

These are the seven portals of initiation. These seven serpents rise in a successive order; these are related to the first seven great Initiations of Major Mysteries.

We exited Eden through the door of sex and only through that door can we enter once again; other doors do not exist. Eden is sex itself.

The seven serpents grant us power over the earth, water, air, the universal fire of life; over the Tattvas of the ether.

The seven serpents awaken within us telepathy, intuition, the occult ear, clairvoyance, intuitive vision, and omniscience. The seven serpents transform us into Gods.”
