The number 33 is directly related to human enlightenment, health and true Gnosis.
Our spine which in the occult is sometimes called the serpent has 33 vertebrae. Initiates in ancient times were known as Nagas, a word that means serpent. Top level Freemasons are said to be 33rd Degree Masons.
The Master’s number is also 33. This is why the Christ Jesus who also known as the Master and represents human enlightenment was crucified at Golgotha (place of the skull) on the logos at age 33 in the year 33 A.D. Logos means reason.
It is the serpent power that rises up the spine through the Kundalini (central nervous system) to the brain in the place of Golgatha, also known as our skull.
This is the alchemical path to illumination. The place of Christ, our savior.
That is why before the Universal Brotherhood of the Catholic Church had depicted Jesus on cross in the 8th century A.D., for hundreds of years before this time, the Savior was always shown as a serpent on a cross.
In science, the kundalini relates to the central nervous system rising 33 degrees up the spinal chaord as it connects to our chakras or what are known in science as our endocrine glands. Our central nervous system, and endocrine glands are both key factors in our alchemical awakening and Gnosis.
It is our spinal chord that is a vital part of our central nervous system that supplies nerves and receives information from the peripheral nervous system within the body.
The word endocrine derives from the Greek words “endo,” meaning within, and “crinis,” meaning to secrete. These glands produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.
A properly operating central nervous system will cause our endocrine glands to function which will help us attain good health and enlightenment if we live healthy, stay away from toxins and think healthy, happy thoughts.
A dysfunctional nervous system will cause our chakras/endocrine glands to not function properly. Hence, your kundalini and chakras wil be damaged, and you will become sick and diseased. Both mentally and physically.
In addition, it will be impossible to become illuminated without properly functioning kundalinis (central nervous systems) and chakras (endocrine glands).
Your light will become dark, and will prematurely leave this world.
