The Divine Pollination Hive is a worldwide Voluntary community based in Belgium, where we celebrate life through emotional awareness, spontaneity, and compassion. Cultivate your uniqueness and creativity in a safe and loving environment with a family you can trust. We are Hermeticists, which is the foundation of alchemy. It is closely connected to Gnosticism, but not entirely the same thing, as Hermeticism is closely related to all of the mystical paths. We to integrate tantric practices, Jungian shadow work, the Trivium, and even some of the Gnostic texts into our personal and professional experience. While we may quote the bible from time to time, we do so from a mystical and Hermetic perspective, and not a Christian or Jewish one. All of the mystical paths build upon the foundation of Hermeticism and alchemy in some way; and we too build upon this sound foundation.
Together we will experience:
- Natural Law
- Emotional Freedom Techniques (meridian tapping)
- Empowered parenting
- Permaculture & Natural Systems
- Conscious non monogamy
- Mature Monogamy
- Unity Tantra
- Shadow work
- Multilogical Dialogue
The “Law of Attraction” is not a New Age concept, although it is talked about predominantly by New Age gurus, but it actually stems from the fabled teacher Hermes Trismegistus, or the “Thrice Great Hermes”, who first observed the “Seven Hermetic Principles”. These principles are self-evident observations about the nature of the Universe, and the aspects that the All has made manifest to us about itself, also known as “Natural Law”. According to the Kybalion, these seven principles are:
- Mentalism – The All is mind; the Universe is mental.
- Correspondence – As above, so below, as below, so above.
- Vibration – Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.
- Polarity – Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.
- Rhythm – The pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.
- Cause & Effect – Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause.
- Gender – Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.
These seven principles can be found secretly encoded into most religious texts, but are discussed more openly within each religion’s corresponding mystical sects, such as Gnosticism, Kabbalah, Sufism, Tantra, and Taoism. Additionally, most of the mystery schools, secret societies, Alchemists, and pagan branches also have these seven principles encoded within them, although their interpretations and understandings will vary drastically based on the goals of each movement.
The mastery of the seven principles is what allows one to master the “Law of Attraction”, but unfortunately, “positive thinking” is a drastic oversimplification of applying these observations of nature. Hermeticists seek to apply these principles from the inside-out, through transmuting their baser instincts of lead into the higher intellect of gold, in order to live in harmony and balance with nature, and all who inhabit our wonderful world. However, dark Hermeticists use these principles outside-in to control and feed upon others, and to use less aware beings as pawns for their own selfish purposes.
The consciousness of the individual soul is what determines how they will interpret these seven natural principles, either as a way to experience personal sovereignty from the inside-out, or as a way to infect others with their own disempowered worldview. In the light path there is a deepening of understanding that expands as the adherent grows into self-knowledge and awareness, but along the dark path there is a contraction of self-knowledge and awareness, as it is fueled by a distorted view of truth that is only meant to fuel selfish lusts and greed.
Mastering of the Seven Hermetic Principles does indeed allow for a miraculous life, as miracles do not defy the laws of nature, nor is their source from beyond nature, for they are the effects of having perfectly aligned with nature. Therefore, if you wish to live a miraculous life — align yourself with nature and its self-evident principles. ~Nathan & Aline
THE EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES
The Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as EFT or Meridian Tapping, is a combination of Chinese acupressure/acupuncture points bundled with modern psychology. It is a powerful means of letting go of childhood and adult trauma, and there are many studies being conducted that back up this assertion (please click here for more on the science of EFT). It is also effective for letting go of beliefs and patterns that no longer provide for a happy and healthy life. Learn how to use EFT to let go of trauma, shame, guilt, jealousy, sadness, fear, and anger, as well as to address any addictive patterns that you might have.
Learn how to be an empowered parent using a combination of “Parenting with Love and Logic” and EFT. Most traditional parenting methods work on how you relate to your children, while they try to force compliance of their children through manipulative techniques, however in the Hive, we use EFT to reverse engineer our parenting and relating patterns, so that we can experience empowerment—and if we experience empowerment, our children will be raised in an empowered manner! The “Parenting with Love and Logic” system of books, videos, and audios provides the perfect ruler in which to start our journey empowered parenting, and coupled with the powerful tool of EFT, our families are bound to improve.
PERMACULTURE & NATURAL SYSTEMS
Permaculture is gardening by utilizing the natural systems and cycles within nature, which allows for self-sustaining lifestyle, and more importantly, a connection to nature. By connecting to nature, we are able to observe how it perpetuates itself without human intervention, and by extension, we can see how a life connected to these natural systems, from our water usage, energy production and consumption, and even romantic and communal relationships can operate in a natural way.
For example, our soil is meant to have boundaries that protect it from the elements, and that allow it to thrive as a living organism, however, traditional monoculture and organic farming have removed the earth’s skin and natural protection, which causes the crops to grow off of the deceased organisms in the soil rather than the living organisms in the soil. Growing food from death is entropic, while growing food from life is expansive; the same is true within our relationships. Many of our human relationships currently thrive upon death and feeding upon others, rather than upon having clear and protective boundaries that define ourselves, each other, and our relationships. These boundaries promote life and expansive relationships, whereas removal of our protective boundaries, much like removal of our skin from protecting our muscles, causes disease, famine, and decay.
There are three different types of farming, three different types of electricity generation, and three different types of relationships. Whereas type one is further from nature, type three is closer and aligned with nature; it is a spectrum of unnatural to natural.
- Unnatural = Monoculture farming = resource dependent energy generation = codependent/vampiric relationships.
- Less unnatural and more natural = Organic farming = renewable sources of energy such as wind/solar/hydro = spiritually centered relationships with a small energetic footprint on others.
- Aligned with nature = Permaculture = free energy, also known as over-unity or lossless energy, where the amount of energy required to generate more energy is less than what it costs to create it in the first place = the Divine Marriage of Unity Consciousness and the ability to create and co-create as gods.
The Divine Pollination Hive seeks to allow each individual the safe space needed to develop into a nature aligned being, and nothing is better at this than allowing for people to learn from nature first hand by permaculture gardening.
Polyamory is a non-monogamous form of relating in which a person will have more than one lover, and polyamorous couples are said to be in an “open relationship”. Many couples are in an open relationship as a means of dealing with a deep fear of intimacy or hyper need for freedom and independence, and although this may relieve some of the tension that the fear creates, it does not eradicate the fear.
Conscious Polyamory is a way of bringing awareness into a relationship in order to release the traumas, fear, possessiveness, jealousy, etc., that may be hiding within the various partners. It is an excellent vehicle for creating situations in which partners are challenged with control dramas that bring painful patterns to the surface so that they can be loved and released, never to be repeated again—it can be an excellent path to spiritual renewal and awakening.
Although we teach conscious polyamory as a means of bringing up our shadow side, we do not advocate any one way of relating romantically, as each person has a unique purpose and path. In unity, relationships are not a quantity, but rather a quality; to be one with another, or multiple others, unity within the Self is first required. Conscious non-monogamy allows the individual the space, freedom, and safety to come into such an alignment.
Beyond the duality and tension between immature monogamy and multi-partnering (polyamory) is a form of romantic relating known as Mature Monogamy, a powerful tool on the path of awakening into the truth of who you really are. In this form of relationship, both partners are radically dedicated to assisting each other in further individuating into a unique individual, while mastering the ability to co-create together. In order to find each other, both partners must be whole and complete within their aloneness–and emotionally, spiritually, and sexually conscious as well. This relationship aims to dig even deeper into their fragmentation, and assist in the uprooting of every impurity that no prior partner was capable of reflecting back to them.
This form of relating begins what is known as a dharmic relationship, and leaves behind the karmic lessons that plagued their past relationships; it is not for the feint of heart, as it requires a deep self knowledge and perseverance. We feel that this is the relationship type most suited to prepare one for the Alchemical Marriage (aka, divine marriage and the divine union). By eliminating all escape routes, you get to see and understand yourself in even deeper ways. This is not for the faint hearted, but a deeply focused way to deepen with your ultimate mirror and love. This CANNOT be done with just any partner, it is only possible with someone who fully meets you emotionally and spiritually, and is just as committed to awakening, self-realization, and deeper intimacy in a romantic relationship. While love may be infinite, equally loving all is not comparable to focused personal love; intimacy is the limiting factor in love, for intimacy is the pipeline that carries love within a relationship – Mature Monogamy is the perfect means to upgrade your intimacy infrastructure.
Not all beings on the path of awakening are meant to experience this deep form of self-intimacy through their romantic One, for it is for a specific plan and purpose of service to the collective that such relationships materialize. The Divine Pollination Hive is dedicated to teaching those who wish to practice Mature Monogamy in asking the most difficult of questions within their relationship, to push into the Alchemical Marriage. For more on Mature Monogamy, please see Robert A. Masters’ articles on the subject here.
Unity Tantra is our way of expressing our sexuality in a mutually co-creative fashion with those we are deepening our relationships with. It helps us to consciously turn our sex life into a creative process, where each moment of bliss (or pain) is experienced from a state of presence rather than unconscious patterns and escapism. Many people are stuck unconsciously playing out their fantasies, or repeating childhood traumas and sexual shame in the bedroom. Whereas sex can express our individuality and creativity, it can also be an escape used to bypass and run away from deep inner work — a means to delude oneself and avoid powerless feelings.
Unity Tantra gives each person the tools needed to be aware and completely present with their lover, connecting in such depths, widths, and heights of intimacy—to be present with their bliss, but also each other’s pain and blocks. We feel that the sexual act and orgasmic experience is not the goal of an enlightened sex life, but rather the mirror that reflects back to each individual who they really are in the moment—it is a way to discover their blocks, and not a means to heal them.
Pleasure is best when it is an outgrowth of our alignment, and not as an escape from our misalignment, or as a means of achieving realignment.
After the blocks are reintegrated through emotional process work and self-reflection, sex then becomes a way to experience the joy of love flowing through their intimate union, and to create and generate their goals.
Unity Tantra is a way to help out the process of conscious sexuality, moving sexual energy, with or without touch, in order to bring awareness to the emotional blocks of fear, sadness, and anger, and their core mental thought patterns, that are preventing deeper intimate connection. As blocks are removed and each individual’s thoughts, feelings, and actions become more aligned, both partners become more energetically sensitive, connected, and responsive.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the dark conscious.” ~Carl Jung
Shadow work is Carl Jung’s third of five steps on the path to an emotionally enlightened life; it is the practice of digging in the dark closets of the self to unearth the patterns that suffocate truth based love. In the Hive, we use the “Relationships as a Mirror”, the Unity Process, and critical thinking to see how each person we interact with is actually reflecting to us our own limiting beliefs and suppressed childhood memories, it is a process of rewriting the core belief that we are separate from each other and the world we live in, and instead connected and one with all of creation. Combined with EFT, working the mirrors is an effective means of unraveling your childhood beliefs and letting them go, sometimes many at a time. It is the path of wisdom, as Lao Tzu said, “To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day,” and as Osho stated, “It’s not a question of learning much. On the contrary. It’s a question of unlearning much.”
Truth is built through a dialogue of diverse viewpoints and ideas, whether it’s emotionally charged or not, it is healthy to engage in. What is not healthy is limiting dialogue because we’re offended, hurt, ascended, transcended, enlightened, right, or any other means of bypass. If what is being communicated is sound and reasonable, it can stand to be challenged; and what will be discovered is that our perception of the truth grows as our understanding grows. Our growth may not come from agreeing with lesser viewpoints, but rather from learning how to defend and communicate our views clearly and intelligibly to others, where we gain better understanding of how to communicate through the dialogue itself.
The challenge of defending and communicating our viewpoints also gives us a better understanding of our perspectives, as we must dig deeper into ourselves to better articulate the reasons for what we believe, and we will often run into viewpoints and reasoning that will add to, or slightly shift our viewpoints. Dialogue can also provide us with situations that challenges, pokes, and prods our emotional state of being, where we can use the possible friction to highlight our emotional upsets, and to discover and neutralize the core reasons why we are upset. In these ways, each dialogue builds our understanding of ourselves and what we believe, whether it is through the friction from the dialogue itself, the logical defense of our perspective, or from sympathetically entering into other perspectives in ways that refines, adds to, and modifies our own. Again, in one way or another, truth is built through a dialogue between diverse viewpoints and ideas.
The Divine Pollination Hive is a voluntary community of interconnected individuals and families who are learning to process their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; the individual does not serve the community, but rather the community supports the individual’s growth and creativity. It is a place where we can safely practice making mistakes, digging deep into our shadow sides, and unraveling our childhood patterns and traumas; a place where we can learn healthy ways to experience and express our sexuality, practice Conscious Non-Monogamy, Mature Monogamy, and learn how to communicate with one another from a space of authenticity from our heart, and not our fears. We are a community purposefully works synergistically together in an intimate manner, while our uniqueness and our diversity of ideas is celebrated; a place where we do not fight to survive, but where we can connect and thrive.
A group and community is meant to be an effect and reflection of the individual’s development as a unique and whole being, and not a cause over them. Herd morality and mentality views the group as a cause, and not an effect, and typically seeks to impose their group’s morals upon other groups and individuals. Voluntaryism is a collection of individuals who voluntarily work together, naturally attracting to those with similar intellectual and moral values. However, most of the other “isms”, especially those that believe in the moral powers of the State, uses the group to pressure individual compliance through some form of external force, whether through conditioning, propaganda, peer pressure, or threat of violence. ~Nathan & Aline
