Why does Lineage Matter?

Lineage allows us to determine the origins and source of teachings. We can find out about the lineage of a practitioner by understanding who their teacher, and their teacher's teacher was. This is what lineage is and it goes beyond organisations.

The ancient mystery schools have always put a lot of emphasis on lineage and preserving the knowledge, wisdom and keys to true spiritual power shared. To ensure the energy transmission beyond just the sharing of the knowledge students are thought orally and the transmission was affirmed through initiation. 


“My years of research among the records of olden peoples available in libraries, museums and shrines of ancient cultures, has convinced me that there exists in the world today, and has existed for thousands of years, a body of enlightened humans united in what might be termed, an Order of the Quest.” Manly P. Hall

The term of Order of the Quest can be used to define the body of initiates that form a mystery school and are dedicated to better themselves as well as to bring light to their environment for the progression of humanity.

Throughout history there have been many periods where the keepers of this knowledge had to operate underground. Their wisdom and light wasn’t always welcome. Over the last 20 years this has started to shift, we are entering a different time where more and more people are openly looking for this ancient wisdom.

There are 7 mystery schools on the planet today. A mystery school can be likened to a tree with a strong trunk and several branches. So each mystery school has a foundation in it’s own lineage and has different branches of study or energy work. E.g. Shamanism, Alchemy, Druidism etc. The 7 Mystery Schools are: the Tibetan Mystery School, Japanese Mystery School, the English Mystery School, the North American Mystery School, the Australian Mystery School, the Rumanian Mystery School and The African Mystery School. The schools have different lineages such as origins in Lemuria, Middle Earth, Atlantis and the Gods of Space or The Northern Gods or in the case of the school we study in the Lineage of King Solomon.

About the lineage of the modern mystery school

We are proud to train in the ancient lineage of King Solomon through the Modern Mystery School. The School’s mission is about anchoring more light to the planet and holding the vision for a future where we can all live together in unity, royalty and joy, connected to our divinity and flowing abundance to all people on earth.

The lineage of King Solomon can be traced back 3500 years and beyond that with less accuracy back to 8000 years. This is an ancient mystery school lineage which has safeguarded the wisdom and true ways of working with energy for lightwork through thousand of years so that we can use these tools today.

King Solomon was a very wise man who gathered shamans from a lot of different places and traditions to work together in a dedicated temple. They exchanged practices and tools and he reorganised the wisdom into a powerful and very wise system of study and spiritual progression which allows us to gradually receive more light through initiation. This is a very safe and tested way of opening our consciousness and senses and to learn how to work with the higher worlds. It is not about showing you the way but about giving you the tools to access your own wisdom and guidance.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the structure of reality:

“In a real sense all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be... This is the inter-related structure of reality.”

In that sense by connecting to and living your purpose from a place of empowerment and joy you contribute to the progression of all. 

Initiates of this lineage including Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Carl Jung and David Bowie, have been working in large and small ways, in the public eye and behind the scenes sharing their light and creative force in their own unique way for the benefit of humanity.

Who are the lineage holders today?
