For us, Esoteric, in particular, Esoteric Studies, is the study of the unseen cosmic etheric energies which exist within us and all around us all the time. Although the untrained eye can rarely sense these energies, it does not mean they are not there. These cosmic forces hold all the information about our past, present, future, and so much more.
In this post, we will dig deeper into the origin of the word Esoteric, what these cosmic energies are, how you can access them, and why you should care.
The word Esoteric originally comes from the Greek word Esôterikós which means “reserved to the disciples”. Apparently, it was first used by Aristotle to describe the followers of Pythagoras. One of the roots of the word Esôterikós is Eso, which means “within”.
Here at the institute, we do not intend to keep the information from the cosmic energies only reserved for the disciples or initiated. You, as an individual, can access and retrieve knowledge from within with meditation. You could say that the information will be reserved for those willing to do the work that enables you to access cosmic energies.
Because the thing is, we can read about different cosmic forces, yet, until you experience them for yourself, they will not have a profound effect on your life.
Here at the Esoteric Studies Institute, our teaching approach is primarily experiential. This means that we will give you a foundational understanding of different topics and create spaces for you to practice. Because it is only when you practice and sense for yourself that you can truly comprehend these energies and see that they exist.
What are these esoteric cosmic forces we talk about?
The list of topics below is not exhaustive, yet, we think it will give you a flavour of what we are discussing here. Throughout history, all of these topics have been coloured in different ways. We, of course, have ours, yet, we hope that we will deliver our teachings in such a way that they will be accessible, easy to understand and down-to-earth.
Our content is supposed to help you improve the quality of your life. We would never want to put anyone off because it seems too mystical or hard to understand. We can improve our situation, and by enhancing our spiritual understanding, we can achieve that.

How can you study these esoteric cosmic energies?
The main roadblock for our mind to sense these energies is doubt, worries, fear and the next thing on our to-do list. Of course, the cosmos made us that way for a reason, yet, through practice, we can experience these energies and benefit from doing so.
Your mind, your being, and your meditation practice bridge the gap to access these cosmic etheric energies that are within us and all around us all the time. Without meditation, no one will get very far.
We observe that many spiritual practitioners employ various rituals, ceremonies etc., to access this information. We do not believe this is required; all you need to learn is how to calm your mind with meditation. You can, of course, use whatever practice you want; at the same time, if you do not feel drawn towards that, know that all you need is meditation.
One note to make is that we are not underplaying the difficulty of meditation; it is the most challenging, most difficult practice that we do. It takes years of practice even to come close to mastering, and most people never will. With that said, practising in itself will enrich your life tremendously.
Within the calmness of your mind, you can start to build your connection to the cosmos, your spiritual guides, and your Inner Spirit, and, through that personal connection, come to understand that we are all connected via the cosmos.
Why should you study these esoteric cosmic energies?
In the scheme of things, our life here on earth is incredibly short, and often so much time is wasted bickering, being anxious about minor details and fearful about the future.
In studying these esoteric cosmic energies, you will gain a greater understanding of why you are here now, hopefully building a sense of acceptance within yourself. That acceptance can result in more peace, harmony and serenity within.
Moreover, studying this area will give you more confidence and trust in yourself, so when the chips are down, which they will be, you know that you can persevere and find your way through.
You do not have to become a practising healer or psychic due to venturing into this space; it is also overall good for your mind because it exercises your mind similarly to going to the gym. Not every gym-goer becomes a professional athlete; most don’t.
That said, we all need to exercise our minds the same way we exercise our bodies; exploring this space with meditation and psychic exercises is a way to do that.
That will raise the quality of your life and your overall sense of well-being.
