The Inner Journey

Inner Treasure Development*

Know yourself, discover your gifts. That is the biggest challenge! The Inner Journey is an interactive online training that leads into that experience of inner beauty and inspiration: it helps you to develop your Inner Treasures. Every lesson a tangible goal, a building block: study, experience, application and internalization.

Every module and every topic is a building brick of what will become your Inner Temple: developing talents, crystal clear realizations, intensifying your senses, all elements balanced.

The Inner Journey is a journey of personal discovery, with the Kabbalistic Tree as the guideline, and Ina Custers van Bergen as your trainer. You will work under supervision, a journey that asks everything: persistence, creativity, spirituality. And that gives back even more: energy, focus, understanding, the power to be, to grow and to transform.

New: Skype learning

You can start any time. Do you speak English? Are you on Skype and able to talk with your supervisor every fortnight on Wednesdays? Then the Inner Journey might be of interest for you.

In the video you will learn what the Inner Journey is and how it develops your Inner Treasures.

Since I want to give every student the full attention, the number of participants is limited. Soon I will start to evaluate qualifications and eligibility of candidates. If you want to participate in this journey of self-discovery and personal growth, and want to discover the hidden treasures of your Self, then don’t hesitate and fill in the form, and I will contact you shortly.

What is the Inner Journey?

The Inner Journey is an in-depth mind training, working with the Deep Imagination. It is based on the Hermetic Kabbala, the backbone of the Hermetic Arts and Sciences. The training consists of 25 lessons, divided into 5 modules that develop in you certain ‘unknown powers of the mind’. You can take this training from your home. Supervision takes place through skype classes and email.

The Inner Journey awakens the dormant powers of your mind

During the Inner Journey, you will train your subconscious mind accessing the deeper layers and learn to apply this rich source of creativity both on the spiritual, psychological and mundane levels by techniques that you apply in your daily life, these techniques stabilize your psyche and cause inner growth.

What will I learn during the Inner Journey?

In the first part of the training you will make links between your Inner Senses and your subconscious mind. Here you lay the fundaments for your future development. It is essential for a solid build-up of the training that this basis has no gaps. This is why everyone starts at lesson one, even if you have a lot of experience in meditation.

Learn to use your Deep Imagination

You will first learn to use and develop your so called ‘Inner Senses’, to access the deeper layers of the mind.  All outer senses (seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, body awareness) have their equivalent on the inner and together are referred to as the ‘Inner Senses’. With the help of your Inner Senses you become aware of automatic processes of the subconscious mind.

In the second phase of the training, you start the exploration and transformation of your personality. Know Thyself is the key to personal growth. When you open yourself up to different layers of consciousness of being in a meditative state, using the Deep Imagination and its Hermetic symbols  will open you to experiences which will enable you to solve problems at the level of your subconscious mind. This will make you more stable and give you a better grip of your life. This process we call Transpersonal Magic.

The next step you will learn, is how to influence these subconscious processes by using Deep Imagination. Deep Imagination is a powerful tool to align yourself with the roots of inspiration and your capacity to heal yourself and transform your life.

The Elements of the Wise: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit

Different states of consciousness are linked to the physical environment and the classical elements. Earth is the ability to manifest. Air the ability to think clearly. Fire is your passion, Water your intuition and Spirit the ability to transform your experiences and bring them to a higher level.

Built your Inner Temple

The next step is to take things to an even deeper level as you work on building your Inner Temple, a sacred space deep inside of your soul. Compare this to building a normal house. You start with the foundations, then you build the walls, the different rooms with their different functions, and then you wire the building. When the basic structures are ready, you switch on the power, and the magic can happen!

The Keys to the Hermetic Secrets

We use Hermetic methods. The word ‘Hermetic’ means that the ideas we study are all based on the philosophy and on the magical ideas of the Hermetic laws of Hermes Trismegistus, another name for the Egyptian God Thoth. Through the Inner Journey you will learn to use the Hermetic Keys.

During the Inner Journey you will learn new meditation techniques that enable you to unfold your Deep Imagination. In each lesson you learn new applications, using Deep Imagination to release some ‘unknown powers of the mind’.

Supervision of the Inner Journey

Each lesson you practice new Deep Imagination techniques. You write down your experiences down in a daily report, which you send to your supervisor.

After a while you will start to feel a new kind of energy. This gradually becomes stronger and more effective and you gain increased control of the process. Because of the power of this force, it is essential that fundamental techniques are completely mastered. This is why we supervise the training.

Books for the Inner Journey

First Module: Magic, the Basics

These first five lessons are the introduction to the Inner Journey. You will find pathworkings which will place your foot on the path you have chosen, articles about different aspects of Hermeticism. You will start doing relaxation exercises and start making your first magical tools. You will learn the inner meaning of the tools you make.

Second Module: The Astral Plane

From now on you  start working with the Hermetic Kabbalah. During every lesson you will be working on a specific area of the Tree of Life. The lessons follow the path going upwards along the Kabbalistic Tree.

Third Module: Raising Fire

Like the Holy Cobra you move from left to right upwards on the Tree of Life. Slowly you climb upwards. On your way up the snake dances from left to right; from light to darkness. From male to female. From Yin to Yang. All opposites need to be balanced to take the next step upwards.

Fourth Module: The Law of Attraction

Now you are starting to notice that the images in your meditations come to life. It is like you have found a sender for psychic energy and you are getting the messages of the inner world clearer. Slowly you are noticing that the inner images tend to influence outer events. This is a parallel process that becomes stronger when you get more trained.

Fifth Module: The Stone of the Wise

You have grown past the stage of the Apprentice. You are connected to the mainstream and you have been given access to the Fellowship of White Magic. You now really start to feel what the Inner Journey brings about in your soul. It makes you hungry for more. The flashes of insight start to come more often in an explosion of joy …
