Incorporation, Overshadowing : processes used
by the Masters of Wisdom
o as to understand better various processes by which a Soul
that is the true Divine Principle living in man
which is triple (Atma – Bouddhi - Hight Manas)
returns on Earth and takes a physical body, it is necessary
to distinguish three possibilities : Incarnation - Incorporation
Incarnation : it is there
general process, the one that use all the human beings for
returning on Earth. The Divine Principle of a being takes
possession since the birth (on the first breath but it takes
care of the embryo since the third month of the gestation)
of this dense body; this Divine Principle guards normally
this body until the death.
Incorporation : it is
always the Divine Principle of a being which returns on Earth
but it takes a body which belonged at the moment of the birth
(generally until 14 years we say to provide
life to the body until such age) to an other being
who gives up voluntarily
this vehicle on the deliberate age.
This process is frequently used by the Masters of Wisdom
to avoid wasting time in gestation, small childhood, adolescence,
etc. They are advanced Disciples, with a very pure structure,
who devote themselves for this real service that is to
come to Earth and to provide life to this body until
a certain age.
It was the situation of Franz Bardon of whom the Real Being
or Soul took, with a precise occult purpose and with the agreement
of his owner (that is the human being named Franz Bardon
who was not the Adept), the body of a 14 year old adolescent.
This last one had an heavy Karma to be restabilized; that
explains why this body was chosen. (See
Franz Bardon's life).
The effect of incarnation or incorporation
is the same : the real being (that is the Soul) has a
physical body and he is very present here below. We say :
to be incarnated by incorporation.
Overshadowing : this process
does not require the taking possession by a Soul of a physical
body as with incarnationor incorporation.
The Being (with a capital letter because they are the Masters
who often use this method), that means his Divine Principle,
wants to help humanity through an human being, less evolved
than him; this being, who is embodied and lives then on Earth,
has certain qualities, certain competence so as to be able
to work for the benefit of the world. In that situation, the
Soul of the Master stays very near of this person, inspires
totally his mind and his emotions so as to strengthen them
with more power and creativity while he offers to them the
aim of this inspiration.
Occultists made numerous confusions between incarnation
and overshadowing. Then, they thought honestly
that the Master Morya, for instance, was really incarnated in
the person of Akbar, the Great Mogol. Akbar, from a certain
period of his life, was overshadowed in
fact by this Master.
It was the same situation with the Master, known under the
name of Franz Bardon : he overshadowed Nostradamus,
Robert Fludd and many others… In the person of Hermes
Trismegist (but this last had another name, Hermes
Trismegistos being a title of Consecration), of Lao
Tseu, Apollonius of Tyana and the Earl
of Saint Germain, he was really incarnated.
