This week we continue the Illuminated Institutions series, and take a look at the Rosicrucian group AMORC as well as some key Rosicrucian beliefs, and practices.
I delve into the writings a former long time member, and see what he has to say, and discuss how currently he, and his books are nearly impossible to find. So without hesitation, let's get on down that rabbit hole, far beyond the mainstream as peel off the petals one by one of the Brotherhood of The Rosy Cross, shall we?
Cheers, and Blessings
Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis
AMORC was founded by former Ordo Templi Orientis Grand Magus Spencer Lewis. According to author Joel Levy, Louis had been an advertising executive and he used his skills to build AMORC into an international success story opening branches in France and forging links with German societies eventually attracting over 250,000 members. He used the order's growing income to build a college, & planetarium at its headquarters in San Jose California along with a highly respected Egyptian museum that houses an important collection of ancient artifacts.
Levy goes on to say: Spencer Lewis himself built up a fascination with the lost continent of Lemuria imagined by Helena Blavatsky, & the Theosophical Society as a counterpart of Atlantis where previous races of humans had acted out millions of years of history before our own era. This led to the bazaar belief that Lemurian super beings in magically powered flying saucers lived within California's Mount Shasta and AMORC sponsored several expeditions in the area in the 1930s to hunt for secret cities below the mountain."
This is related to the New Age idea that the Ascended Masters dwell on Mount Shasta

Criticisms against Harvey Spencer Lewis and the Principles of Rosicrucianism
There are links, & cross influences between Rosicrucianism, the mystical side of freemasonry, alchemy, Astrology hermetic philosophy the western mystery tradition the philosophy and esoteric Christianity. And out of all these was born the hermetic order of the Golden Dawn. David B. Barrett Secret religions.
To the Rosicrucians, the letters INRI (which is a sacred word in their order) & appeared on the cross of Jesus Christ signified ige natura regenerando integrat = through fire, nature is reborn whole.
By 1622, as recorded in THE MORNING OF THE MAGICIANS, and in numerous other places,
" ... the inhabitants of Paris woke to find the walls of their city covered with posters bearing the following message: 'We, deputies of the principal College of the Brethren of the Rose Cross (Rosicrucians) are amongst you in this town, visibly and invisibly, through the grace of the Most High to whom the hearts of all just men are turned, in order to save our fellow-men from the error of death.
God is referred to as "The Cosmic"
AMORC speaks of the seven true mystical organizations, which are all from seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. The only ones of these that are still in existence are AMORC and the Freemasons. But according to AMORC, the modem Freemasons are a "sleepy organization," meaning that they are not the authentic organization they ought to be. Thus, AMORC claims to be the only true representation of a mystical organization on Earth.
There are twelve temple degrees.

There are two main sections to the study course: the neophyte and the temple sections (except for the first introductory eight lessons, each of which is titled and numbered "Mandamus").
In the beginning of the neophyte's journey, before commencing with the official monograph series, AMORC provides the new member with a set of about eight introductory papers, bound into a booklet, called a Mandamus. Inside the first Mandamus collection is another little booklet called Liber 777 (liber means "book" in Latin). This booklet contains the information about a concept called the celestial sanctum.
The other lessons throughout the sections are titled and numbered "Monographs."
The monographs, small treatises that comprise the "weekly" lessons of AMORC, are the key to AMORC's powerful indoctrination techniques. The amazing thing is that the monographs, which encourage the development of a home sanctum, a place for meditation and study, are sufficient to fully indoctrinate the majority of members.
This concept of transference can also be seen in very diverse relationships in ordinary life. A prisoner might, after a time, transfer his autonomy to a professional interrogator, a student might surrender his autonomy to a teacher, or a citizen may give up his independence to a political leader.
In the case of AMORC, through a manipulation of the student's view of the unique authority of the order, the exalted power of the imperator and the AMORC leaders, and the alleged presence of the invisible masters in the training, the monographs themselves assume a unique role.
Higher initiates are not supposed to tell lower initiates about experiments or what they are studying.
Basically, AMORC claims that time does not exist for a Rosicrucian—except, of course, when your membership fee is due. In fact, time becomes so real at this point that you become very aware that if your membership commitments aren't met on time, you will be automatically cut from the egregore. Severing one's connection to the egregore, the sacred pattern of the order on other planes, may not sound so severe to an outsider, but to a Rosicrucian now dependent on the organization, this is a powerful threat. Remember that a Rosicrucian believes that his fundamental connection to God is linked to his association with the egregore of AMORC.
Many times, AMORC is a member's first pass at this type of teaching or organization. When this is the case, AMORC's claims tend to go unquestioned, especially when information coming from ordinary scientific and religious circles is subtly questioned. Since AMORC has its unique calling in the world, other Rosicrucian orders are considered to be pale imitations at best, if not outright frauds.
So by the time a neophyte begins to question AMORC, the order has created many stumbling blocks inside his mind. To question AMORC's authority becomes dangerous and even treasonous. The initiate looks at AMORC as the only source of this supersensible knowledge. AMORC tells their initiates that these great developments can be obtained only with the genuine Rosicrucian teaching.
See Exercise 1 Aura
Pierre says he first witnessed a human aura when he was in the Social Security office and it disturbed him because he did not want to see that.
In order to create a compliant and highly suggestible membership, certain elements of indoctrination need to be set into place. One of them is "loaded language," in which cult members use special words like Cosmic (instead of God) to give a certain flavor to the cult language. Loading the language. As members continue to formulate their ideas in the group's jargon, this language serves the purpose of constricting members' thinking and shutting down critical thinking abilities. At first, translating from their native tongue into "groupspeak" forces members to censor, edit, and slow down spontaneous bursts of criticism or oppositional ideas. That helps them to cut off and contain negative or resistive feelings. Eventually, speaking in cult jargon is second nature, and talking with outsiders becomes energy-consuming and awkward. Soon enough, members find it most comfortable to talk only among themselves in the new vocabulary. To reinforce this, all kinds of derogatory names are given to outsiders: wogs, systemites, reactionairies, unclean, or Satan.
Members are made to feel part of an elite corps of mankind. This feeling of being special, of participating in the most important acts in human history with a vanguard of committed believers, is strong emotional glue to keep people sacrificing and working hard.
See: The essays in the Mandamus collection make a variety of key claims about the order.
AMORC affirms that the world as we know it is nonexistent. It all only exists in our own mind. Our vocabulary and use of words do not convey the real nature of things. This is soon followed by the assertion that "It is possible to modify the manifestation of matter." Here AMORC lays the foundation to instill in members the belief that they, the select people of this Earth, can change everything.
It contends, using its "centuries-old wisdom" card, that "science has finally localized the different zones of the brain, but the Rosicrucians knew since antiquity about such things." It promises that in the future, when the member gets to the sixth temple degree, previous knowledge about health from antiquity will be passed on to the member to helptreat agreat number of sicknesses.
By affirming reasonableness and freedom, AMORC creates a psychological vulnerability in the minds of their students. Their minds are now completely open to the so-called enlightened Rosicrucian methods. In most cults, there is a strong, seemingly rational foundation laid during the early indoctrination phase. One interesting concept, brought out in this monograph, is the assertion that Rosicrucians have no actual right to property. Anything that a member possesses really belongs to the Cosmic.
To me, although seemingly idealistic, this doctrine is an attempt to further obliterate personal identity and freedom. In later degrees, AMORC will ask its members to not say I, but we instead. The We belonging to what? Perhaps the we of "our order." Slowly, individual consciousness is raked over to toward the hive mentality.
Institutions of a theurgical and esoteric nature that have genuine affiliation don't promote themselves openly on the net like others do, and they are certainly not AMORC, despite the latter being one of the most known Rosicrucian affiliations in the world.
"AMORC (just like the O.T.O.) has created a sort of monopoly in this sector, often infiltrating and manipulating smaller orders and affiliations, threatening even lawsuits to stop any form of competition or improper use of their brand of sectarian magick. They are a sort of multinational of the occult., and prefers to present itself as an emanation of the false positivity of the New Age era. It is actually an additional tool of manipulation in the hands of the usual suspects."

AMORC then tells its members how to prepare themselves for sleep. The goal is to go to sleep in a meditative state. This is accomplished by the member initially lying on his back, face up, with his hands on the solar plexus. Now, even in their sleep, members can do Rosicrucian exercises.
AMORC is not content just to show the value of deep breathing. It attempts to bring the member to believe that deep breathing was "invented by a Rosicrucian."Burning incense, sleeping on your back, singing vowel sounds, chewing your food properly ... all of these and more involve private facets of your life that are ultimately branded with the AMORC signature. You learn how to eat, breathe, and sleep in the Rosicrucian way ...
See: Prisoner of San Jose
The exercise that follows uses "negative breathing," a technique that is the opposite of "positive breathing." In positive breathing, you in hale and hold the breath for as long as possible; in negative breathing, you exhale, attempting to not inhale for as long as possible.
Holding the right thumb between thumb and index of the left hand, the neophyte is asked to practice negative breathing and ob serve the effect on the right arm. The neophyte is warned to make sure to practice this exercise for two or three minutes.
Atrium 2, Monograph 10
AMORC classifies illnesses into two categories: illnesses with a fever and illnesses without a fever. As this classification leads to a choice of treatment, when a member experiences an illness, he must first check to see whether he has a fever.
In Rosicrucian therapy, someone who has a fever, no matter what the cause of the illness, is evincing a need for negative energy. In this case, you need to use a negative breathing treatment. If the illness comes without a fever, default to a positive treatment.
Atrium 2, Monograph 11
In this monograph, the neophyte again begins a treatment by wash ing his hands and drinking a glass of water. Again, basic activities in life will become a trigger that will help release the cult personality, making obtaining the freedom of the mind an almost impossible task. The ritual of washing the hands and drinking the water is a call to compliance, an invocation of the cult personality to the bidding of its master.

"This theory of life does not rest upon speculation however, it is one of the first facts of life demonstrated to the pupil of a Mystery school. He is taught to watch a child in the act dying, also, to watch it in the invisible world from day to day, until it comes to a new birth a year or two later. Then he knows with absolute certainty that we return to earth to reap in a future life what we now sow." Max Heindel
"They are Great Intelligences who always subordinate minor considerations to higher ends, and under their beneficent guidance we are constantly progressing from life to life under conditions exactly suited to each individual, until in time we shall attain to a higher evolution and become Supermen." Max Hiendel
HOW SHALL WE KNOW CHRIST AT HIS COMING? BY MAX HEINDEL "This book tells us that Christ will return in an etheric, not a physical body. Hence mankind must develop the etheric body to the point where they can function in it consciously before Christ will return. Then they will possess the inner spiritual perception by which they will be able to recognize Him."
