The reason this story doesn’t have an X-Rating on it is that it comes out of the mythology of the Bible. And if you aren’t familiar with or don’t understand the mythology of the Bible or the symbolism of the Bible you’ll never be able to understand the deeper spiritual meaning of this story. It just becomes one of those tales that never gets talked about in church because of its sexual content.
Let’s go ahead and dive in and break down this tale into something that makes sense.
This all starts in Genesis Chapter 29, and what you have here is a reference to Jacob, who becomes the ego within us, that personality which will deliver us to the divine mind.
The story goes that he has two wives, one is called Leah the other Rachel. Rachel will provide that which is the right side, the spiritual side, that which is the divine part of our being. Leah is that which is the left side, the emotional nature, the physical part. Both are vital to our existence and need to be in harmony with each other.
The “child of promise” will also be born from Rachel in this story. Not an actual child, but the child within all of us, a spiritual birth that happens when you go within and access the divine part of your being during meditation.
You’ll also see the formation of the 12 signs of the zodiac. Jacob is the father of the 12 signs of the zodiac, which predates the Bible by thousands of years. You can see that in detail in Genesis 49.
What Jacob will eventually do is exactly what you and I do. Jacob will intercourse with Leah, with the emotional nature, and produced out of that intercourse of the emotional nature will be the various aspects of the mind, which are represented by the signs of the zodiac. That’s what this whole story is about. And if you don’t understand the symbolism, it just becomes a bizarre story of a guy who can’t keep it in his pants and who can’t seem to overcome his carnal desires.
The name Leah actually means “weary.” But after you get through reading this story you’ll think Jacob should be the one that would be weary. He is a very busy guy!
Leah was hated, she wasn’t favored as Rachael was. There’s a difference. Leah is that emotional side of you that produces the thoughts or children of the left side, your physical nature, and some of the thoughts are very fearful, some of the thoughts are very depressing, some of the thoughts are very exhilarating, some of the thoughts are very good, and some of those thoughts are not so good. Leah will intercourse with you but Rachel cannot because Rachel is that divine right side which can only be opened by that which we call God, which flowers from within and produces the child of promise. That’s the beautiful part of this story.
Genesis 29-31 KJV
And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb. God opened her so she could bear but Rachel was barren.
Rachel was barren because Rachel is going to provide only that which can be provided through God in the same way that Sarah provided, the same way that Manoah provided, the same way that Elizabeth provided, and in the same way that Mary provided. All of these that are barren means that divine part of the womb which cannot be stimulated by human thought, which cannot be stimulated by the human physical representation of intercourse. This represents that which is the aspect of good and evil, the left side, Leah.
Romans 8-7 KJV
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
But it is absolutely necessary. It’s the most beautiful part of being alive, it’s your physical realm, it’s the part that loves music, it’s the part that loves to read, it’s the part that loves to be entertained, and so on and so forth. There are all of these great and beautiful things you’re created to experience, so don’t put it down, don’t think that the flesh is an evil thing. It’s not at all. It’s just another part of the equation that is life.
Genesis 29-32 KJV
And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
Reuben means “behold the son.” And the zodiacal sign which identifies Reuben is Aquarius. The birth of Aquarius, the first of the twelve tribes. Jacob is quickly back in the sack again in verse 33.
Genesis 29-33 KJV
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the Lord hath heard I was hated, he hath therefore given me this son also: and she called his name Simeon.
Simeon means “hearing,” and represents the sign Gemini. Jacob gets a drink of water and gets back down to business.
Genesis 29-34 KJV
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because I have born him three sons: therefore was his name called Levi.
Levi means “adhesion.” Meaning joined to Simeon. Both brothers together representing Gemini, the Twins.
Genesis 29-35 KJV
And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
Judah means “king.” And is a representation of Leo, the Lion. Remember, Jesus was the lion of the Tribe of Judah.
Genesis 30-1 KJV
And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.
We’re now seeing what develops in the mind. The understanding that the child of promise must be born through this process or the spirit will die. Unless you allow this which is within you to give birth to this magnificent higher consciousness, which is happening now, that spirit within you will die, and it’s up to you to make it happen. It’s intercourse that happens within your mind but unless you allow it to flower within you that spirit within you will die.
Genesis 30-2 KJV
And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?
Jacob is exhibiting the frustration of all of us. It’s like when you go into meditation and say ‘you know I’ve sat here and I’ve done this but I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything out of it. What can I do? How do I do this?’ How can you possibly make that right-side flower and open up? That is Jacob’s frustration. You can intercourse with the left side. You do it all the time and you create thoughts within your mind and you create situations for yourself. You create some good situations and you create some negative situations but create you do. Constantly your intercourse is with Leah. You’re in a coercing with the left side and if nothing’s going on you’ll invite her into your room because you’ve got to produce something. If there isn’t any trouble we’ll create some, and in Genesis chapter 30 verse 3 we still don’t know how to open the womb so we turned to the left side where we input, we create religion.
Genesis 30-3 KJV
And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.
Jacob is like ‘well if I must, I must.’ But it’s the same thing, just a different name. It’s still that left side because Rachel, the divine part of you, hasn’t conceived yet. And Jacob’s intercourse with Bilhah is no different from what happens between Abraham and Sarah in the following passages.
Genesis 16 1-2 (KJV)
Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.
2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
The stories are so similar and are trying to teach you the same things that are buried deep in allegory. But why did the Lord restrain her from bearing? Because she cannot bring forth a child by way of the intercourse with the flesh, she must bring forth a child when the womb opens up by a divine process, which is, of course, meditation.
Hagar, Bilhah and Leah are the emotions of the left side. Sarah and Rachel both provide a real child of spirit, a child of promise within.
Bilhah means “faltering.” Leah means “weary.” Hagar means “stranger.” How can you intercourse with faltering, weary and stranger? You can’t intercourse with them and produce the child of promise. Only intercourse with Sarah and Rachel can give you what you so desire.
Jacob takes a quick breath, checks his handsome mug in the mirror and jumps back in the sack again.
Genesis 30 4-6 KJV
4 And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto her.
5 And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.
6 And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan.
He intercourses with Bilhah again and continues to create religion, continues to create emotionalism. The name Dan means “judge” and is associated with the sign Scorpio.
Genesis 30-8 KJV
8 And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.
Naphtali means “my wrestling,” and is associated with the sign Capricorn.
Genesis 30 9-11 KJV
9 When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.
10 And Zilpah Leah’s maid bare Jacob a son.
11 And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.
Leah can’t conceive anymore so she introduces Jacob to a new lady and her name is Zilpah, which means “drooping” and is associated with the sign Aries. In Greek mythology, Aries is the god of war, so that’s where “a troop cometh” ties in. Gad means “harrowing fortune” and speaks to a wife’s deep anguish, shame and loneliness.
Genesis 30 12-13 KJV
12 And Zilpah Leah’s maid bare Jacob a second son13 And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed: and she called his name Asher.
Asher means “happy” and is a foretelling of what is to come. Asher is symbolic of the sign Libra, which is the scales, which is balance. Now we get into the age-old story of sex and drugs.
Genesis 30-14 KJV
14 And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son’s mandrakes.
Remember, Ruben is Leah’s first son and he found mandrakes in the field and brought them to his mother. Mandrake is a plant that has hallucinogenic properties. It has been called the “Apple of Sodom,” the “Love Apple” and the Arabs call it “Satan’s Apple.”
So Reuben has a bag full of dope for his mommy. Quite the visual.
Rachel said to Leah, ‘Leah, give me the stuff tonight because I want to get high.’ Rachel, the higher aspect of your consciousness, needs to get high or be elevated to a higher level of consciousness.
Genesis 30-15 KJV
15And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my husband? and wouldest thou take away my son’s mandrakes also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee to night for thy son’s mandrakes.
So Leah says, ‘You’ve taken my husband and now you want my drugs?’ Rachel replies, ‘Look, Leah, I want the drugs and I’ll let you sleep with Jacob tonight in return.’
Leah thought this over for about two seconds because Jacob is like “Brad-Pitt-hot” and says, ‘It’s a deal!’
Genesis 30-16 KJV
16 And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I have hired thee with my son’s mandrakes. And he lay with her that night.
Leah says, ‘Hey, I bought you for selling my drugs and we are going to do it tonight.’ I’m still trying to pick up my jaw off of the floor just from reading that one.
This is Jacob, one of the great patriarchs of Christianity. Why is this not a focal point of Sunday worship? It’s not so bad. He just shacked up with a woman who sold her drugs to sleep with him, that’s all. If only the church would teach the deeper allegorical meaning, we may actually benefit from going to church.
Genesis 30 17-18 KJV
17 And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob the fifth son.
18 And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden to my husband: and she called his name Issachar.
Issachar means “hired” and is symbolic of the sign Taurus.
Genesis 30 19-20 KJV
19 And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.
20 And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.
Zebulun means “dwelling at the sea” and is symbolic of the sign Pisces, the Fishes.
Genesis 30-21 KJV
21 And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
Dinah means “judged” or “vindicated” and is symbolic of the sign Virgo, the Virgin.
It’s completed. The father has completed you as a fully-rounded human, physical flesh and blood being of the twelve signs of the zodiac and twelve aspects of you. Hence, the virgin.
Genesis 30-22 KJV
22 And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb
23 And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:
24 And she called his name Joseph
Joseph means “increaser” and is the same Joseph of the coat of many colors, and is the zodiacal sign Sagittarius.
It’s all about you and me. It has nothing to do with sex, it has nothing to do with drugs. but the Bible overflows with allegory and uses these stories that were most common for the time when it was written to describe that which is the adventure of life and how to find balance in it.
We have to allow Rachel to have the mandrakes, allow Rachel to be lifted up into the ecstasy of the higher realms of consciousness, allow your right side to be stimulated in meditation and she will rise and give you that which is the child of promise.
Jacob and Rachel; and it’s the exact same story when you bring it forward because if you will allow that which is the right side, Mary, to be consumed in that which is the higher blissful realms of your meditation, she will give you her son, who is Jesus the Christ and He will give you a child that will be the child of promise, too.
The pastors, priests and churchgoers won’t read this in the church because they couldn’t handle it because it’s sex and drugs and they’re not allowed to talk about that in church.
They look and look but they don’t see. They listen and listen but they don’t hear or understand.
