This work explores some of the soul lessons contained in the Emerald Tablets of Thoth, the Atlantean. It includes some of the meditations and symbols found in the Tablets.
Thoth, the Lord of Wisdom and Magical Science, was exalted in Ancient Egypt as the god of words and writing. He is also attributed with the building of the Pyramids of Giza. He is described as the "scribe of the gods," the "lord of writing," the "master of papyrus," “the maker of the palette and the ink-jar," the "lord of divine words," i.e., the holy writings or scriptures, and as he was the lord of books and the master of the power of speech. He was considered to be the possessor of all knowledge both human and divine.
In our modern world, he is one of the Ascended Masters that can be called upon to help the writing, either manuscripts or to formulate affirmations, spells, speeches and the like.
Noami Ozaniec captures the essence of Thoth’s role as an Ascended Master in the following terms:
“I am Thoth, Lord of Wisdom. I was not one of the gods born on the five extra days. Indeed it was I who, by my great power, was seen to win these five days in a game of chance. I am self-created. I am a Neter of a different order. I am the teacher of Isis, herself an embodiment of the ancient wisdom. Do you seek me for I am ever present? I am the god of wisdom. All scribes of all ages are my servants. I carry the scribal palette just like my servants. Those who seek the truth are my retinue. I am called Lord of the Divine Words and Lord of Maat. I bring the thirst for cosmic truth. I am the originator of all the arts and sciences; mathematics, writing, astronomy, geometry and medicine. The scribes of the House of Life were especially under my care and guidance. I am the Lord of Books. I breathe into my priesthood that they may hear my words. My priesthood receives `the words of Thoth’.”
In my experience he has a quiet, stealthy energy and helps focus you attention with the use of words. I once asked him for help when I was writing something unrelated to matters spiritual. When I woke up, I distinctly remember hearing the words, “just start writing. You can’t finish it if you haven’t started it.” The simplicity of that message had a profound effect on my mind, because at that stage, was so caught up in trying to decide cosmetic details of my work, like fonts, layout, etc., that I forgot what I really want to do: to write. I have since learnt that lesson and now I always remember to just get on with the project, however, unformulated the details might be in my mind. I have learnt not to focus on the finished product, but on the substance of what I need to write. He is the master of words, and I always deeply appreciate his input.
The purpose of this work is to extract some lessons and spiritual advice from his teachings in the Emerald Tablets.
They represent a series of lessons from which I have learnt to expand my soul connections and spiritual understanding. A striking feature of the Tablets is that the messages contained in the Emerald Tablets are universal. Throughout the ages, we have been called to choose between a life filled with love and light or one darkened by negativity. It strikes at the core of me that most ancient civilizations have spoken about the essence of human choice, which lies in listening to your heart. I particularly like the neat simplicity of the Thoth’s messages. I suspect that it what drew me to this work. Thoth represents spiritual power through words. He makes us aware of the ability to use words so we can transform our life experience and share that with others. In the Tablets, I find answers to my confused and often doubtful logic. It fills me with a sense of purpose and hope. I have used the Tablets to answer many personal questions.
I have found lots of literature which questions the authenticity of Thoth’s work or even his existence. I am personally comfortable with his existence, and if these are not authentic works of their time, I am grateful for the creation of the work, by whomever. It contains a lovely world of light, mystery and guidance and it would be silly to dismiss powerful messages of universal truth, whatever its origins. I choose to see them as a wonderful gift to me and others. For that, I fell blessed by the author.
On a practical note, I have formatted the Tablets by paragraph for ease of reference, and in my discussion, I have referred to the Tablet number where the material appears, followed by the paragraph number. I have used as much of the original text as possible to allow the reader to find their own message and interpretation.
