Yes it's a book. No, you won't find it on Amazon or anywhere else as it is out-of-print and was only issued in limited edition back in 1988. It correlated The Tree of Life, The Seven Planes Chart (see Alice Bailey), The 8 Circuits, and a whole lot more. The book says:Gawain wrote:But what is Spiritual Acupuncture? A book?

"Emotions" - The emotional/feeling plane. That's right!Gawain wrote:..."2nd circuit: Yesod" is just a description of the 2nd circuit; it doesn't have much to do with Yesod as traditionally described. I mean, they're both connected with emotions, but what about sex, dreams etc.?
That's a completely different correlation. I fail to see how the 1st circuit (survival) is attributed to Moon-day (Yesod on the Tree). I am always suspicious of correlations that follow something like the same order as the days of the week, or the progression of the months, or the order of the colors in the rainbow, merely because scientists, and emperors, and churches have fiddled and adjusted these things to fit their needs, but not necessarily because it's the way nature does it. You are wise to be "bugged" in this case.Gawain wrote:One thing that keeps buggin' me is that R.A. Wilson ascribed the circuits to the planets in the order of the days of the week, starting with the moon. What is the occult significance of that order?

If this is the case, then is the state of consciousness that is obtained from marijuana the same or similar to K&CHGA since marijuana is the drug associated with the 5th Circuit by RAW and Leary?

"Some humans receive an "imprint" of the spiritual consciousness upon activating a proper trigger, which may include many years of advanced Raja Yoga, the use of sacred power plants, and/or the practice of Magick. The Spiritual, or Atmic, plane is called by metaphysicians and parapsychologists the "Metaprogramming Circuit" or "Magical Consciousness." Specifically, the spiritual imprint confers the ability to "construct a new reality tunnel." Accessing this level of consciousness is the only means to reprogram the imprints of the personality, which otherwise will remain unchanged throughout a lifetime (and perhaps beyond!). The atmic imprint is something we have in common with about three percent of humanity.
For the person who succeeds in gaining access to this level, and is able to operate (even a little) herein, there lies the danger of degeneration into megalomania. The metaprogramming circuit is too real, and too powerful a concept, to project it directly outward to normal humanity without wrapping it extensively in a genuine sense of humor."
8th circuit: Kether
"Some humans receive an "imprint" of the monadic consciousness upon activating a proper trigger, which may include clinical death (dying on an operating table and then being revived) or 100% out of the body projections (see Astral Projection). The Monadic plane is called by metaphysicians and parapsychologists the "Quantum Circuit." Specifically, the monadic imprint confers the ability to "access all the information of the Universe." Accessing this level of consciousness often results in reports of extra-terrestrial contact, communication with a "galactic overmind," or conversations with angels. Monadic consciousness exists without a biological container. The monadic imprint is something we have in common with only one to two percent of humanity.
On the Tree of Life, the Monadic plane is the uppermost sphere (number One). It has little to do with the events taking place in the three-dimensional world, and is said to cause an obliteration of the perception of time and space. You may have heard mystics, or marbleheads, discoursing on being "beyond time and/or space;" this is the realm to which they referred."
