ANCIENT THOUGHTS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SACRUM
The sacrum is indeed a ‘sacred’ bony part of the body. The ancient ‘Hermetic practitioners’ believed the Sacrum to be related to a spade.
“The spade symbolises the spinal column, and the spade-shaped piece which is used on the deck of cards, is the sacrum bone.
This bone forms the base of the spinal column, and is also the spear of the Passion. Through it and the foramina, which pierce it, pass the roots of the spinal nerve, which indeed are the roots of the Tree of Life.
It is the center through which are nourished and fed the lower vertebrae of the spine, the sacrum and all the way up into the cranium.
The currents and forces working through these lower spinal nerves must be transmuted and lifted upward to feed the altar fire at the positive or upper end of the spine. The centering of thought or emotion upon higher or lower things, as the case may be, determines where the life energy will be expended. If the lower emotions
predominate, the flame upon the altar burns low and flickers out, because the forces that feed it have been concentrated upon the lower centers.
When altruism predominates, then the lower forces are raised upward and pass through the purification which makes possible their being used as fuel for the ever burning lamp.” (‘The Initiates of the Flame’, Manly P. Hall).
