The Art of Astral Travel: Meeting Your Spirit Guide & Finding Your Life Purpose

By Brittany Windom

Everyone Can Do It

What if I told you that anyone in the world has the ability to travel astrally? Our very own being has every tool it needs to project our astral bodies, but we only need a take-off point. I have had many experiences with astral travel in my lifetime and they all end up being very different scenarios. My journeys first started in dreams where my astral self flew over green rolling hills of another distant, yet strangely familiar, land. In one moment my body stood there with bare feet on grass, then I ran to get momentum, and I began to lift off the ground. I was finally able to soar like my very own spirit animal: the hawk.

While sleeping, have you ever dreamed about flying to faraway places? You were most likely using your innate spiritual tools to take a break from the physical realm. As for me, after these beautifully vivid dreams had occurred, my mind became hungry for more information on the art of astral projection.

Meet Your Guides and Access the Akashic Records

Through meditation, you can raise your vibration and open yourself up to astral travel. I studied the art of visualization and meditation in various books, including works by Sylvia Browne, which taught me how to successfully travel to the “other side”. Sylvia’s work, Temples On the Other Side: How Wisdom from “Beyond the Veil” Can Help You Right Now, described magical places where you can astrally travel and access beneficial information for your life path.

When I first read this work, I realized that I had seen these various temples, lands, and environments in my past dreams and visions. They were familiar feeling places and I wanted to revisit them. Travel experiences can be useful to rejuvenate your soul, to send and receive information, to re-visit places you’ve lived in past lives, and even to meet others who have passed away and moved on to the “other side”. Thanks to astral projection I was able to visit my spirit guides and access valuable Akashic record information for my life purpose.

How to Begin to Safely and Consciously Try Astral Travel at Home

1. Choose any type of spirit guide meditation that resonates with you (in a book, a video,  or online). With the audio recording tool on my cell phone, I read aloud and recorded a spirit guide meditation from one of Sylvia Brown’s books. Try to record this in a slow and calm manner,  with multiple pauses, in order to get the most out of your meditation.

2. Light some candles and cleanse the energy of your space by burning some dried sage to disperse the smoke in all corners of the room. While doing this hold, in your mind, the intention of clearing all negative energies and bringing only light and love into your sacred space.

3. Sit in a comfortable position on your couch or cushion on the floor, close your eyes and envision in your mind’s eye a white ball of light surrounding your body from head to toe. The light is like a glowing bubble that travels from the top of your crown chakra, encompasses your body, and connects to the chakras at the soles of your feet. Feel the bright warmth of light tingling through your body like sun rays. This light bubble protects you throughout your meditation.

4. Press the play button on the recording or video and sink into a peaceful and deep trance-like state, while letting your imagination take you wherever it wants to go.

Before You Begin Traveling  

Eliminate all distractions like cell phones, televisions, loud music, or noisy people before your meditation. Take your time to feel at peace while preparing for your journey and keep a slow and steady pace during the practice. Keep in mind that your spirit guide will most likely speak to you telepathically and not with their mouths as physical beings do. Everyone’s experience will be different depending on how you prefer to create your environment on the other side.

During the Meditation

Use all of your senses in the meditation process and have fun. Smell the aromas around you, listen to the sounds of nature, feel the grass under your feet, view the colors in your surroundings, and taste different objects in the environment. When you meet your guide, feel free to ask them any questions about your life purpose, career, passions, love, family, and anything else on your mind. We are all already a part of the divine source and have all the knowledge we need inside of us, but your guide helps your soul to remember certain information that is beneficial for you. Your guide may answer you through a voice, a feeling, light, symbols, gifts, or another gesture. Receive this wisdom from the Akashic records with gratitude and remember that only you will be able to interpret your spirit messages. The knowledge will be specific for your life at this very moment. With insight into your life purpose, you will be able to reach new levels of spiritual awareness.

After Travel and Coming Back to the Physical

Do not be discouraged if you cannot be fully aware of your experience the first time. Practice and persistence will take you to new enlightening territory with all of your senses, so keep at it. Most importantly keep a journal of your experiences so you can look back at the beneficial life messages you’ve received from your guides. Journals also allow you to document what you would like to try for your next astral journey. Eventually, you will be able to successfully fine-tune and control your adventures. After meditation remembers to ground yourself by imagining glowing white tree roots that grow from your feet and into the ground. Drinking plenty of water and having a snack also help the grounding process, so you aren’t constantly spiritually floating all day. Happy Travels!

Why Marianne Williamson Suggested ‘Prayer’ Could Shift Hurricane Dorian

By Joe Martino | Collective Evolution

In Brief

  • The Facts:Marianne Williamson suggested that ‘prayer’ could help shift hurricane Dorian away from land. The mainstream media and popular influencers did not take this very well, mainly because they didn’t understand it.
  • Reflect On:Are we really going to see deep truths and understandings about our reality come from the mainstream? Don’t we need conscious media to grow and become more popular so these conversations can be had on a larger scale to create change?

Marianne Williamson tweeted about how prayer and the power of the mind could potentially shift hurricane Dorian away from land and the media and influencers went a little haywire.

Her exact tweet, before she deleted it, read as follows, “The Bahamas, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas…may all be in our prayers now. Millions of us seeing Dorian turn away from land is not a wacky idea; it is creative use of the power of the mind. Two minutes of prayer, visualization, meditation for those in the way of the storm.”

Many, including the opinions over at The View, have been seeing this as stupid, dangerous, silly and childlike. But is this idea really that crazy? Or was it just not explained properly?

The truth is, at least in my research, is that Marianne was referring to the power of consciousness and human intention which is widely recognized in scientific study as something that has merit. The US public and mainstream culture is fairly ignorant to this fact, but it doesn’t mean it’s not true.

My only feedback on how Williamson handled this was that perhaps this was a time to bring some of that research and evidence forward to enter into the public space as there is plenty of credible peer-reviewed research to go off of.

In the segment below I discuss in detail:

– What happened when Marianne made the Tweet

– The negative feedback she received and who it was from

– The science behind what she is referring to

– How this is an important time to shift culture in the West to understand the true nature of our reality

– How mainstream media is just keeping people stuck in a false reality.

You can watch the full segment below or join us at CETV on a 7 day free trial and become a member so we can continue to bringing consciousness into the mainstream conversation as it’s direly needed right now and we believe a more well-rounded discussion of current events is the future of media.

The Takeaway

It’s not a bad thing that the mainstream culture does not understand what Marianne was getting at, it just shows what is. What’s important however is that by having Marianne run she is creating conversations that CAN open people’s minds providing this more extended discussion happens. If we let the mainstream media control this conversation and ridicule her without providing a deeper analysis and the facts, then the culture will remain the same.

Global Transmutation is Here: Let’s Make Our Lives Epic!

By Open | Openhand

We are no longer on the cusp of great change in the World. We are no longer on the brink. We are RIGHT IN the midst of the most powerful Transmutation process in the Earth’s history. On the surface it is far from petty: climate crisis, environmental destruction, financial instability, and political insanity, it’s enough to make an angel weep! But did we expect the world’s shift to higher consciousness to be all roses and light? What we need right now are the mirrors. We need the reflections to let go of the collapsing old world consciousness that’s become decrepit and defunct. Let that be the inspiration to decide: to take back power, take center stream, and make your life epic!

Feel the acceleration in The Shift happening under your feet

As politicians pontificate and climate scientists prevaricate, Gaia is doing her stuff. She’s doing what she always agreed to. In conjunction with dramatic energetic changes in our solar system and the galaxy too, our bankrupt old world consciousness is being unraveled by its very threads. As evolving people we know everything is interconnected, everything is moving as one. Just as realities crystalize and take shape for a greater learning process, so they are unraveled and broken apart when they’ve served their purpose.

I urge you, step back for a moment, take stock, look at the big picture perspective. The environment we live in is being broken down, and that’s tragic. We each must dig deep and take responsibility for our footprint. But there is a much bigger process here at play. The impact of manmade CO2 emissions on climate is already being dwarfed by a galactic trigger, which wishes to break down the defunct 3D reality. That’s what life does: learn from its mistakes, unravel and create a new.
Here are the 4 real reasons for Climate Crisis

What we’re talking about is the wholesale breakdown of our 3D reality, and just like the resplendent dragonfly, the emergence of a pristine new reality in a higher vibrational existence – one that has learned from the mistakes of the old, where all life is cherished and working in harmonious union. That’s what the collective consciousness has been yearning for all this time. That is the catalytic driver for change.

An Understanding on the Process of Transformation from 3D to 5D Earth

Catalytic Driver for Change

Plenty of you reading this will already know what I’m talking about. To others, it’ll just be becoming clear.

Hold your nerve I say. Steel your will. Smelt the blade of your soul in the Furness.

Yes, it’s getting pretty ‘hot’ out there.

But this is exactly what we need right now.

Too many have been hanging onto the banks for too long. Afraid of taking a center stream and daring to be them. They’re still clinging on, distracting so they don’t have to confront the awesome magnitude of the truth.

I say to you there is no longer the time to play it small.

No reason to hide in the shadows of life and tow the party line.

Dig deep into your soul. Feel what is right, aligned and authentic for you.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Look into the outer mirror of life, see society’s limiting shadow, in all its wonderous ridiculousness.

See where it’s contracted you down and made you small. Feel deep into the tightness inside. Is it the solar plexus? The sacrum? Perhaps the heart? So where is the attachment, where do you need the world to be a particular way? What are you afraid of?

These questions can help dig deep into the karmic ties that still hold: what if I lose that job? What if my relationship falls apart? What if I can’t pay the bills?

Society can no longer pay the bills! I put it to you that with the current convergence of manmade climate change, of the Pole Shift, Changes in the Solar Logos, and the imminent arrival of the next Galactic Superwave, we probably have a window of about 30 years or so left on the 3D earth. What will you do with that time?

Let’s be clear: this is NOT about turning it all back. This is NOT about finding an eco-friendly band-aid to somehow plaster it all together. A synthetic system has been created with hybridized Homo Sapiens purposefully enslaved within. These are the layers that will now be peeled away. This is the defunct reality that needs to go. The world will return to Gaia, Realignment will happen. The 3D reality will be composted to make way for the 5D paradigm.

And there is a place there for each and every one of us should we choose it.

Fortune Favours the Bold

But we have to be bold now. Courageous. Dramatic change is the driver for this transformation. See it all around you now happening. From the purposefully created Amazon fires to the melting polar ice sheet, some of it is manmade, yes, but plenty is a much deeper, wider process in the natural cycle of life, of death and rebirth.

Wholesale change is here. Look into the macrocosym, and then feel it in the microcosym of your life. How are your relationships wanting to change? What about how you work, live and play? What is the higher consciousness choice right now?

This is NOT about waiting for some big “Event” to happen. It is ALREADY happening!

It’s about being inspired to make higher consciousness choices right now.

You know what they are. Moment by moment, if you listen, you can feel it in your heart. You simply KNOW what is the truth for you. That is BEFORE the ‘what ifs’ and ‘why nots’ of the mind get in the way and hijack the flow. You must hold them open right now. You must feel their contracting tightness and open a wide doorway through them. Remember yourself as who you really are – the vastness of The One. Become that. Open into that. And then look for the authentic emergent aspect of soul that now wants to shine forth.

Dive into Centre Stream

So, I urge all: seize the day; seize the opportunity; seize this incredible moment. You have a first-row seat for the most spectacular transformation imaginable – the death and rebirth of a star. And it will be the death and rebirth for humanity too.

What I’m talking about is transmutation: realizing yourself beyond the physical; knowing yourself as the consciousness of the soul; living on, beyond the physical demise of your body. And then manifesting in a new form in a higher vibrational frequency. That’s what this daily confrontation of our physical, emotional and karmic limitations leads to.

That great possibility is there for each of us. It’s time to embrace this incredible ride; instead of being overawed by it, be positively inspired because there’s simply nothing to be gained by hanging on and playing small. Let’s step out and be all that we are, all that is real for you. Don’t hold back any longer, there’s simply no point. And definitely don’t hold onto the collapsing banks of the old world system. Now, more than ever, it is time to take the centre stream.

Let’s dive in together and make our lives epic!

How to Build Your 5D Reality…Here and Now

woman with arms outstretched

By Open | Openhand

It’s time folks. Procrastination has to fall by the wayside now. Allegiance to a dying system must progressively wither and perish, just as the system itself is doing. There will likely be fear about that. It’s okay. Honor it, embrace it, because fear is a tremendous vehicle for growth. It’s in the fear where you can honestly touch your identification – the holding on. Where does it get tight inside? Here’s the answer your soul is seeking out, here’s exactly why you created this moment – for this feeling you’re having now. It’s through these burning doorways, we blaze a trail into a new reality, a higher evolution of being. It’s possible, necessary, and it’s calling you…

Be all-in

The 3D world is no doubt pervasive. It’s the solidity of it, isn’t it? You eat solid food, walk on solid ground, everywhere feel solid things. Everything you witness reconfirms what your mind thought about the world you see around you. Even if you’re awake, witnessing, testing exploring, still the reflection in the solidity tells you about the reality of the 3D.

In many ways, it’s a good thing. How else would you enjoy the taste of an apple, the feeling of early morning breath as it expands your chest, or the sun on your face gently soothing?

There’s great beauty in this of course. But the more we engross ourselves in it, the more it limits our capacity to see beyond, to feel beyond, to go beyond. I’m not saying to enjoy what’s left of the 3D world, not at all. I’m saying enjoy it like there’s no tomorrow. Be all-in. But here’s the key – explore so deeply in, be so present within it, that you pick up your soul flowing through the experience.

There’s so much more than just the physical.

The Eye of the Needle

Take sexual intimacy: two apparent polarities melting into each other. The pull of love is so compelling, so completing, so fulfilling, so physically wonderful, but the risk is that becomes the end of it – the anti-climax. However, when you deeply penetrate the physical experience, go sensually into every cell, then once more you pick up the intangible essence of the soul, which sweeps you up into higher dimensions.

Don’t settle for less!

This is how 5D reality is built. It’s not something you aim for ‘out there’. It’s not something you believe in and hopes that it will come true one day. It’s not something you create with your mind. And it’s definitely not something “you put off till tomorrow” – tomorrow will never come!

It’s here, now. In your experience, in every experience. It’s a lightness, an interconnectedness, a timelessness, a joy. It holds the deeper meaning of the moment, as an interconnective flow.

And it speaks through clicking in synchronicity, like walking a path of golden light.

Follow the Calling

Don’t expect it to be easy though. You can do it. Your soul is seeded to do it. It is its singular destiny and purpose. But in this alluring density, it’s not easy. The tantalizing allurements will keep pulling you back – if you let them. Don’t. Hear the soft voice of the soul and keep following it.


When you follow this calling, it unfolds you, unwinds you, expands you. Which becomes so clearly the purpose of each unfolding moment. Each moment is like a wave washing up on a welcome shore, making it’s ‘life’ and experience complete. Inside yourself, you’re washing up on the welcome shores of the one. There’s nothing to compare with this sense of completeness.

With physicality, there is a limit, always a boundary. There’s always too little, leaving you wanting evermore.

But on the shores of the one, there’s no limit to its depth, to its completeness, to its fulfillment.
You bathe in it, bask in it, always deepen into it. What else is there?

Go Deeply In

So it begins inside. It must happen at every moment. The deep inner inquiry. The feeling into the contracting limitation of the physical. Where do you get tight? Where do you close down? Where does it own you? Where are you left wanting? Here are all the doorways, all the possibilities. Don’t ever simply look past them, for they are the jewels of possibility.

Go deeply in, feel deeply through, look for the wind of soulful expansion that wants to sweep you up through and out of them. You’ll be flying high in no time.

I call this Breakthrough – and it’s there for you in every single moment. Every single possibility.

It’s time.

Time is Now Accelerating to a Standstill…How do you deal with that?

Space Time Continuum-compressed

By Open | Openhand

Are you feeling it too? It’s like you have more and more to do, and increasingly less time to do it. It’s because of this Great Shift of Consciousness into the 5D. Time is speeding up because life here in the 3D has been locked into an eddy current – a ‘time-warp’, behind the flow; but now, that reality is unwinding, we’re rejoining the space-time-continuum, where there is no time!

How do you deal with that in a practical sense? What does it mean for your life and all that you’re doing – all that you’re working to create?…

Artificial definition of ‘Time’

Linear time is an illusion. It’s a warp in time-space, held in place by a mind which has lost the flow and moved into an eddy current of beliefs and judgments, temporarily separated from the mainstream of the universal flow. It’s like one has decided already what reality will be, and so one’s natural creative powers create that – the risk is to make it real – held in place by a conditioned belief of what it will be tomorrow, based on what it was yesterday.

That is until the reality becomes so dense, that it pulls in the realigning flow of the cosmos
to bring it back to the mainstream.

Deep in our past, humanity has witnessed the flow slowing down into this eddy current, noticed that for some considerable period of ‘time’ it has behaved in an apparently predictable way, and then assigned some artificial definition of ‘seconds’, ‘minutes’ and ‘hours’ to it. Since this artificial view of ‘time’ is related to the spin of the planet, it seemed somehow constant.

However, the mind is not indefinitely bound to the physical density. Instead, it is a vehicle for the flow of the soul, and now the soul of man is shifting, in the direction of the 5D shift of the planet. As you move toward the Fifth Density – inside yourself – then you begin to pass through the 4D, where the notion of linear time ceases. Instead, you rejoin the space-time-continuum, where all in the cosmos is moving in concert together.

Being is the Change

That’s why there can still be movement within this one moment of now – because everything moves together. The ‘past’ is unwinding through this moment, and the next possible ‘future’ is already landing in this moment. And so the dynamic continues rolling forward continually shaping the new reality – the new form of the continuum.

For an ego locked into an eddy current – a bubble – within that continuum, trying to hold a fixed reality in place, ultimately becomes a massive headspin!

In this temporary bubble, you may think you have things to do, that are important. You may have your day lined up with ‘this’ and ‘that’. You may think your career is important, putting a roof over your head, the bills, and the mortgage, etc, etc. And you find yourself chasing ever more to meet these ‘deadlines’. Yet underneath all of this is another, entirely different, agenda.

The flow has a purpose and direction all of its own. It’s working through the greater cosmos to reflect mirrors of the One, of what the One is being now. And it’s doing so through every part of the Universe – including you. The Universe is being, and that’s why they say Being is the Change.

Life is Ascending into a more timeless 5D

So in any one moment, you’re being pulled by two contradictory flows: the fixed eddy current of ideas and beliefs about what you should be doing in this matrix called ‘society’. But also the underlying movement connecting up to the soul that wants to bring you back to the mainstream – back to being. When you’re in this authentic beingness, time disappears. That’s why the more you open up to your soul, the less time you’ll have to waste on things that don’t ultimately matter.

So what doesn’t matter right now?

Life on the planet is ascending. The old 3D reality has served its purpose and is unwinding. We see that in the rapidly changing climate and the breakdown of the biosphere. We see it in the moving on of life through this Sixth Mass Extinction. There’s no need to hang on to this, to try to ‘heal’ or ‘fix’ it. The fixing and healing IS the movement into a Higher Vibrational Frequency – the consensus of sentient life here is looking for, and moving toward, a reality of greater harmony, of a greater sense of pure being.

What do you really have to do?

The 4D karmic anchor that has created this reality, for the purpose of evolutionary exploration, education, and growth, has been lifted. It happened at the back-end of 2012 when Gaia centered her consciousness in the 5D. Now the old reality is unwinding and unraveling. The physical constructs may still be in place – for now – but the soul is being encouraged ‘higher’, by the movement of other sentient life steadily shifting frequency.

What does this mean in a practical sense?


It means if you’re still locked into doing, to trying to shape and control things in the 3D, you’ll likely find yourself under increasing stress as you have less and less time to do what you think you have to. The more you surrender those things that you really don’t need to do, the more you’ll come into the presence of being. Paradoxically, when you’re in that place, it feels like time has stopped. Because it has! You’ve speeded up into a standstill, where you’re now being.

How can you live within this shifting dynamic?

The 3D reality will continue to exist – a while longer. But it will become increasingly challenged in the years ahead as sentience ascends. It means the resources of the planet will dwindle, and the growing space for food as the climate shifts too. This is already happening. We see it for example in the phenomenal speed with which marine life is moving on – which is a major link within the global food chain.

So there will still be things to do. But it’s increasingly essential that the doing is authentic – that it arises only from authentic being; in other words, you have to be coming from the soul in order for your life to truly work.

If you find yourself increasingly rushed and hurried to do things, it’s because you’re not actually doing what the unraveling flow is inviting you to do.

There’s absolutely no need to hurry

It’s time to let go – to surrender what you think you must, should, or are obliged, to do. Instead, feel deep into the soul and commit only to that sense of ‘rightness’, which is then supported by the clicking-in of synchronicity. Then you know you’re in the flow, and it feels like you have all the time in the world…

“The Tao is never hurried
And yet nothing is left undone.”

Lao Tzu

Life will continue a while longer here in the 3D, but the underlying impetus is to move on. That in itself is already unwinding this reality, which is felt as insecurity to all those scrabbling to manifest or control dwindling natural resources. If you want to evolve and be a part of the realigning flow, there’s no need to fight or try to hang on.

Let go. Surrender. You don’t have to do a fraction of what you think you must.

Take time to come into stillness. As much as possible. And from the stillness let natural action flow.

There’s nothing to struggle for – let go, You’ve Arrived!

There’s nothing to fix. There’s nothing to solve, to struggle for or to hold in place. It’s all solving itself and you just have to dance within that resolution.

It may well batter you. Or rather….it will batter the ego!
It will batter the ego down into the surrenderedness of the soul.

So stop fighting. Stop struggling. Stop trying to fix it. Let it fix you.
Stop trying to get somewhere – then you’ll find time stops and you’ve already arrived!

Namaste

Why Spiritual Mastery Is a Life-Shattering Process and What You Must Do

By Open | Openhand

Anyone truly embarking on the spiritual path must quickly give up the idea that it’s easy, or especially, that it will somehow build you up into something. And it’s definitely not all ‘love and light’ – not the true path anyway. In my experience, both of my own journey and in working with countless others, I’ve found that Spiritual Mastery is a shattering, breaking down process that causes you to confront past-life trauma and source pain. It’s also reflective of the current state of our reality right now. Why is that? What might you expect? How might you deal effectively with what comes up?…

Walking the Spiritual Path

I’ve encountered many people who’ve told me they’ve been “walking a particular spiritual approach for so and so years”. Yet really, when you dig below the surface, it’s clear they’re not truly Walking the Spiritual Path. Why not? What does Walking the Spiritual Path really mean?

It’s an all-in, total commitment, at the moment, moment-by-moment surrender. It’s definitely not about trying to get something physical. It’s certainly not intentional manifesting – who are trying to do that? It’s mostly ego. There comes this moment on the journey, where there’s a breaking-down sobbing commitment to the divine. A recognition that this is what you’re really here for – to be of selfless service. In this place, you’d practically starve, have everything taken from you, all relationships broken, and yet still see the beauty of it, still celebrate your inviolable connection to the divine. It’s a moment by moment commitment, to only, and always, come from your highest truth, as felt deep within your soul.

It’s like to say: I’m not going to do another dammed thing, no more wishy-washy half-truths, I will do nothing unless I can feel it coming from my soul, even if I die in this place right now. In my experience, the incredible paradox is, there’s great joy in this approach!

Why else is the spiritual path a shattering process?

All realities come and go

Consider the universe. It is in constant flux, constant change and it is all interconnected. Nothing is solid and fixed – it only at times appears that way. It’s all interconnected vibrational energy, all flowing in various waves of direction. At times, eddy currents form in this flow and realities take shape. But still they are not fixed – just like water constantly flowing in and constantly flowing out. No matter how established they seem, as some point, everything caught in them will wash away.

It’s the same in consciousness space. Unity consciousness is like the flow. And it’s always searching for higher harmonies of existence. In one way, this sense of unity binds realities together – it is the gravity of which the cosmologists speak. Yet it also creates instability, the agitation searching out higher, more equitable realities.

So ultimately, ALL realities become unstable and break down.

That’s the place the Earth finds herself in right now – a reality has formed from the karmic 4D layer for a given period, for the collective to explore particular truths – such as “what’s fair for all life, not just one form of life?” When the central pillar of that reality – Gaia in this case – has learned what she needed to, then she moves on, encouraging all life to move with her.

So Gaia is has begun unraveling this old reality and is currently building a new one in the 5D. Anyone who is able to expand – within themselves – out of the limits of the physical, through the 4D karmic layer and unto the interconnectivity of the 5D, will already be feeling it within their consciousness. (See: The Process of Transformation from 3D to 5D Earth)

An explosive cauldron of alchemical change

That’s why I say this is a breaking down process. Not a building up one. Our connections to the physical reality must break as we penetrate and unravel our karmic veils.

And at the moment, only a very few, in percentage terms, are committed to this. I work with spiritual people all over the world, and barely without exception, they have incarnated into families, most members of which, are still stuck, still identifying with the drama, still asleep. The awake ones mostly feel in a minority, mavericks against the mainstream.

So when a soul truly exerts its power and sovereignty, it’s mostly against this dogma and resistance. When you have the courage to be you that challenges deeply the people around you – when you’re doing your unfolding ‘job’ fully, I observe they’ll go either one of three ways:

  1. start breaking down and unfolding themselves
  2. hold the space admirably while you get on with it and without interfering
  3. exert resistance, and dig their feet in, until probably the relationship breaks down.

It’s almost impossible for the relationship to sustain in its old form within this divergence of polarity – it’s an explosive cauldron of alchemical change.

All the time in the world – but no time to waste

Do I make it sound tough? Well, I don’t wish to exaggerate. It’s just what I observe, time and time again. And mostly those not in this cauldron, often tend to be in a quasi-state of denial about what the path is really inviting, or else lack of true commitment. Take a pop at me if you like, it’s just my truth based on what I observe.

You might find yourself in this breaking down process. You’re genuinely committed to the path, but find things falling apart – your job, your relationships, your general way of living. Don’t worry. I see this time and time again in true seekers. Let’s be clear, the Earth is in a breaking down process right now in the 3D. And this needs to happen in order to fully establish the 5D. So don’t expect your life to be much different. And don’t worry – if all is breaking apart, if the layers are being mercilessly peeled off you, then you’re exactly where you need to be.

Try this… 9 Step Process for Dealing with Karma and Trauma.

And if your life is not breaking you down or has not, if it’s not been challenging you to the core for some considerable time, then maybe you’re not yet committed enough? Maybe you’re not yet all in.

In which case, don’t worry either. But do explore your commitment. There’s still all the time in the world, but the world is changing, so there’s definitely no time to waste.

Surrender. Dive all-in.

When you do let go, when you dive over the waterfall with abandon, yes it’s going to batter you; yes you’ll have to confront many fears, many dark nights of the soul, but when you eventually bob back up to the surface again, all the pounding will have been worth it. You’ll have forged true spiritual mastery. Your life will be forever bountiful.

So all you have to do is let go. Surrender. Dive all-in. Let it break you down. All the way back into One.

And to help, we put together this short video on dealing with such challenges on the path. Enjoy…

The Fatality of Fate: Defying Definitive Dimensional Destiny

Image result for create destiny quoteSo, fellow humans…what on Earth are we doing here? Perhaps the oldest question amongst the world of philosophy right up there with, “To be, or not to be…”, it is one that has perplexed the best of us for as long as history itself existed.

Are we destined to walk a preordained path? Or are we capable of shaping our fate to our will?

Well, it depends on who you ask, but for me personally, my answers are “yes” and “yes”. I believe that while we are immensely more powerful than we’ve ever been taught in modern society, that on another level, we all succumb to be a part of something greater than ourselves. A team, a church, a family or organization; humans yearn to commune and history shows that we tend to thrive in groups more than we do as solitary creatures.

Religious or not, we all must admit that we have experienced at one point in our life a situation where we felt completely out of control. And at one point or another, turned to something, or someone outside of ourselves for a new perspective, or advice on how to traverse a path we somehow can no longer see clearly.

So, is it true? Are certain experiences destined to occur regardless of our will, focus, or plans? Or are we all victims of our own sub-conscious creations, each creating their own strand to expand the web of life. Science confirms we are all energy and that on a molecular level, there is nothing truly “solid” no separate about any of us. In fact, the only difference is what is called our “resonance” or electric frequency we are emitting at any given time.

Could varying levels of resonance act to push one event to come to fruition over another? Absofreakinglutely. If you are mindful enough to notice, when our day starts out “bad” and we trip over the coffee table, it is our reaction that acts to define the mood or energy of the rest of our day. Think about it…how quickly do we say out loud to ourselves when we are running late in the morning, “Well, gonna be one of those days…” without a second thought that we have just acted to manifest that very kind of day?

So, in that sense, we ARE on some level admitting we are victims of circumstance, but is that entirely true? Perhaps if we had chosen to awaken 30 minutes earlier, we wouldn’t have tripped over the coffee table, causing us to be late and thus put out there that we WANT a shitty day. 

If we know anything of energy it is that it is always moving towards or away from something else. And that while like minds might think alike, when it comes to energy, two positives will repel one another, not attract. Perhaps this can be likened to how we organically act as mirrors to one another, always attracting those towards us who will bring us exactly the type of energy that will help us learn something we are not currently aware of even if we do not like how it is delivered. As the saying goes, if you’re open-minded, everyone and everything is your Teacher.

In a sense, we can stay at the “level of resonance” we choose, regardless of knowledge acquired. You see, knowing something is not worth anything until it is applied. Without application, it truly serves no good purpose and will fester in its own way until it is released. This is not subject only to harbored secrets or betrayals we may be ashamed of and thus buried away under our proverbial mind rug, but includes our gifts, talents, generosity, and compassion. If we know better, we do better and not to sound cliche but knowledge truly is power.

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln

When used to serve others, power will expand your energetic reach and lift you into higher resonance (trust, love, collaboration). When you work to serve only yourself, it will constrict your energy and pull you into lower resonance (fear, lack, competition…) I’m not saying let yourself go without, not at all, but rather when we serve ourselves from a place of knowing that everything is connected, there is no room for guilt, shame, or separation. We begin to realize that when we take care of ourselves we are better suited to care for others, who are merely extensions of ourself.

We all know we live in a world of 3-D, but we are MULTIdimensional beings and the wholeness of who we are spans across all time, space and dimensions of reality. If we can remember our power in times of grief and struggle, we ultimately allow that inner fire to act as the propellant to ignite our greatest potential.

Always remember, no matter how “bad” a day may seem to be going, if you give yourself the gift of presence; your full attention within that moment, you are also claiming power to the fact you can actually make it any kind of day you choose for it to be, regardless of what “happens to you”. Image result for create destiny quote

When we act from the heart, rather than the mind, we leave little room to doubt the natural flow of intuitive energy that flows within each and every one of us. The same energy that if we stop and tune into, plays a song only those within the same resonance can hear. This is why when we feel confident, we attract those that see what we FEEL about ourselves. Also, when we are feeling insecure we attract those that bring out what we are AFRAID to feel; which is the fact that we truly do create ourselves and our lives with each and every choice.

We can choose to see life as a road map someone else designed and take the safe route, or we can turn the map over and create our own path, whether traveled before by another or not. That’s what great about killing your subdued attachment to fate… its death allows the destiny of your creation to burst forth into life.

The Great 5D Shift Has Begun: Wake Up and Transcend the Parody!

respect-and-pray

By Open | Openhand

We’re living in two worlds, not one. There’s the old crumbling 3D karmic reality and a pristine shiny new 5D one, steadily emerging from the dross of the old. But you’re still here, for now, a while longer, rummaging through the rubble, digging up those priceless buried fragments of soul gold. Don’t worry, it just got a whole lot easier. Whereas humanity has previously been blinded from the sun, now the shadow side has come clearly into view. And how strong it is, just in case anyone might miss it. Here is the incredible opportunity to separate yourself from the shadow, to ascend into your golden self…

We manifested a parody!

Have you got it yet? Have you stopped gnashing your teeth at “that election result”? How could humanity be so stupid? How could any leader be so out of touch? Except humanity has been living within shadows for so long now – living within repetitive behaviorisms, sanitized by the system is acceptable and okay. “Everyone’s doing it, so why not me?” There are so many living in ways that destroy the biosphere, destroy sentient life, destroy their own consciousness.

It’s gotten so dark, the universe has had to present ever stronger mirrors by which to see: the Titanic, the Twin Towers, and now the big “T”. The need for evolution is so pressing, that we had to create the biggest, worst, loudest mirror…

We manifested a joke,

a big, bold parody of ourselves so we just couldn’t miss it.

A great big wake up call

The point is, can you see it all now? Can you see just how close to the precipice humanity has come? Like the dinosaurs before us, we’ve chosen a big bad wake up call – a comet in the midst of this santised asleepness. The universe is saying: “Ignore that if you can!”


So what do you do now? Wail around at the end of “life as we know it?” Wait for some savior, some leader, some God, some fair new politician to appear and make it all right? The rightness is already happening. It’s already there all around you. The shadow of what you are not is as strong as it can be. “God” has answered the call. Just as when Gaia sent out her primal scream to resolve the massive consumption that the dinosaurs had become.

But you can’t simply distance yourself from the shadow you see. We manifested it for a reason. Don’t pray for the easy way out, the soft option, absconding away in a bubble of false love and light. There are invaluable aspects of yourself caught within the subconscious shadows we all create. Dig amongst them, get right in there, express your pain, become as one with it, then liberate that aspect of truth in it.

Here’s a big clue,

if you want to drop a distortion,
first, find the truth at the heart of it.

So what’s the truth at the heart of this outlandish raptor consciousness?

The truth at the heart of the distortion

In many ways, the distortion is a blatant disregard for other sentient life. It is self-serving, taking whatever it can, obliterating anything that objects or stands in its way. So there’s the distortion. Where’s the truth at the heart of it?

Reality is an illusion, that buries the shadow side of your true self within it.

It binds in your subconsciousness and terrorizes you with it. Why?
Because if reality didn’t feel so real, if the separation wasn’t so strongly apparent,
you’d never know the exquisite taste of an apple, on a warm summer’s day.

But how about having your cake and eating it too?

What you could do, is allow the distortion – the shadow – to draw you in. Then wake up to it. Stop sleeping. See the reality you create, warts and all. Then explore the tightness, your resistance, and contraction in the face of your shadow. Where does it own you? Where does it make you small? Where does it terrorize you?
But don’t just drop the attachments like “dropping the hot coals”. Because if you’ve not felt fully into their heat, you’ll still be an identity distancing yourself from the heat. You’ve got to surrender fully into it; feel the pain, the resistance, the anger, and anxiety. For only then can you explode the myth that they are? Only there can you reclaim those lost nuggets of soul gold.

Embrace the Mirror

So embrace this mirror, this parody of ourselves. Let it activate your attachments, your fears, and anxieties. And in the midst of it – the height of it – remind yourself this is all an illusion; that you are the One, self-actualizing. You’re not to blame for it all, but you are now responsible for deciding who you are in the face of the darkness. Take a deep look at your part in it all. Animate it in order to accept it. Find forgiveness, for yourself, then rise out of it all…

It’s time to find a new alignment. Go for it!

So it’s time to find a new alignment. To look in the shadow. Feel the tightness it creates. Whatever that is, don’t retract from what you feel. Instead, go right into the heart of this ‘beast’.

Then expand through, feel through the tightness into pure presence. And from the presence, allow rightness to simply flow. Keep working to come from this aligned, attuned place in life. And the flow you unleash will carry you on a journey through the wreckage into a bright new beginning in the Higher Paradigm of the Fifth Density.

That’s what our new Breakthrough meditation is designed to achieve. It’s penetrating the illusion of the shadow side, attuning with your sense of soul, and riding its wave all the way back to the source inside yourself. And you can live this way, all the time, every day, in all the situations you face.

I put it to you this is the way to truly create the New Paradigm.
It’s time. Go for it!

Namaste

The 7 Best Techniques For Inducing An Out-Of-Body Experience

C.Taylor | IN5D

life after deathThe Seven Most Effective Techniques for Inducing an Out of Body Experience

Firstly, it is important to say that before attempting to use any of the Techniques for inducing an Out of Body Experience, you should be fully-relaxed in mind and body. Out-of-Body-Experience.info contains lots of information and tips in order to reach the desired state of mind.

Inducing an Out of Body Experience is not something to be forced, and without sufficient relaxation, you are unlikely to project successfully! Read about Out of Body Experience techniques, by all means, but do understand that until you have mastered relaxation and trance-states, you will not be able to do much with them. Learn about how to enter a Deep Trance here!

Now, that said, here are the Seven Best Techniques for Inducing an Out of Body Experience:

1. Inducing an Out of Body Experience Using The Rope Technique

The Rope Projection technique is said to have been devised by Robert Bruce, one of the foremost figures in the world of Astral Projection. The idea was for a method of projection that would be effective for people who were without sight and therefore relies more on tactile experience than visual memories. The technique hinges around an imaginary rope that hangs above you from the ceiling.

As you lie on your bed, you imagine the rope hanging down towards you, and what you do is visualize yourself (or rather, your Astral Self) taking hold of the rope, and pulling yourself up the rope, one hand at a time, all the while concentrating on the sensations as you climb upwards. Be aware of the feeling of the rope against your hands, and the motion of your body as you pull yourself up from your bed, and concentrating also on the feelings of your arms slowly but surely pulling yourself upwards.

The Rope Technique is extraordinarily successful at inducing an Out of Body Experience, even in people who have struggled for a long time to see any results. Quite quickly, a feeling of fairly intense vertigo is experienced, and projection is generally instantaneous, provided the student has kept themselves calm and relaxed throughout.

2. Out of Body Experience using the Ladder Technique

Occasionally, people have difficulty with the rope technique for astral projection, as they just don’t feel that their imaginary hands and arms are strong enough to hold them and pull them up the rope. This may sound strange to you, but it is a phenomenon more common than you would think!

In this instance, a ladder may be imagined hanging from the ceiling, instead, which has the benefit of allowing the would-be Astral Projector to use his or her feet, as well as the hands.

All other aspects of this method remain the same as with the Rope Projection Technique.

3. Out of Body Experience with the Point Shift Method

The next two techniques for Out of Body Experiences are slightly more traditional and also more difficult for many people. However, some people take to these kinds of Astral Projection techniques like a duck to water, and it is certainly good to have as many different methods under your belt as possible.

The point shift method involves becoming intensely aware of your own body and then mapping out in your imagination where everything in your room is, in relation to you and each other. It is for this reason that it requires quite a lot of concentration.

Once this stage has been reached, you then can feel yourself float, just a few inches, at first, and then visualize all of your surroundings from that new perspective. The idea is to feel as if you have already projected out of your body, and keeping your awareness of where you are and what you visualize from the view-point of your imaginary self!

Finally, you slowly rise from your physical body. This takes what can only be described as a very relaxed form of will-power. Some force is necessary, but you must not allow your body to become tense. Congratulations, you have projected, and once this method of Astral Projection is mastered, you will find it far easier to project under almost any circumstances.

How to Not Spend a Lifetime in Your Own Head

Image result for einstein imagination quotesWhile I’m not sure why, lately I’ve been contemplating truth and how even though we can prove or disprove certain things before throwing them into the truth bucket, that truth forever remains untouchable, as it is the only thing we can never know for certain. 

You see we are manifestors. Whether or not you’re into healing crystals or the New York Mets, it doesn’t matter. Everything is energy and that includes our thoughts. In fact, everything in our 3rd-dimensional reality began with a thought. No pun intended but THINK about it.

Anything astray from natural creation, which includes all matter created or brought into the material world by humanity, not by nature could be traced back to thought in time-space. Without the idea of capturing light in the makings of a lightbulb, we would presumably all still lighting our homes with candles.

Or would we? Are certain things part of the natural unfolding of life within the universe as we know it? Or is…everything a part of it?

A firm believer in destiny, but paradoxically also in full awareness that we can alter that same destiny and create what we call “fate”. Any Terminator fans out there will remember the quote, “No fate but what we make.” I’ve never forgotten that quote, and can even recall the immense tingle of synchronicity flow over me when I first heard it years ago.

So, how can something be destined to happen, yet entirely at the forsaken will of the human mind at all times? Perhaps that is the very construct that holds together this realm of existence. Perhaps we can not exist without creating, just the same as we would not exist without being created…

What does this all have to do with living in our own heads? Well, let me first start by explaining a little deeper as to what I mean by that. Imagination is something we’re taught as kids is some part of us that is out of touch with reality and the older we get, the less we should listen to or even acknowledge the often magnificent creations that surface there.

Now, one could say, “well as adults, don’t we simply call it being creative?” Sure, but creativity can be defined in many ways. In my experience, when I fight for control over a situation rather than relaxing into the solution, I get VERY creative, but from a place of fear, lack and need. 

This could further be described as being tied to our reptilian brain and knack for survival that lodged deep into the core of our DNA. And while it serves in inevitable purpose to keep us alive during our lifetimes, it does nothing to keep that spark alive that starts and ends within our childhood imagination, and any adult who may have ever taught you to never disconnect from is, is one truly aware of the imagination’s necessity to live a fully conscious life…outside of our heads.

That may sound backward, but it’s our imaginations that keep us connected to OUR truth. Meaning the path we set forth for ourselves way before the constraints of society and the judgments of other people ever seeped deep into our subconscious.

If we allow the opinions of others being the guiding light on our journey, then we eventually forget to use our own. And you know what they say about “use it or lose it” and our internal light is no different. While we can never fully extinguish it, we can dim it to the point we convince ourselves it no longer exists.

If you take anything from this article, please let it be that no matter what your personal truth is, you are loved. The mere thought, words and acknowledge of my words prove it and literally just manifested that love into our reality. It really IS that simple and it’s time that we were all reminded of how powerful we are. Not the kind of power that fuels the ego, but one that propels the soul into Spiritual Alchemy; the art of personal transformation. Where we let our inner light and imagination guide us on our path.

When one reconnects to what we once thought was lost within ourselves, we allow ourselves to find our way home to our own hearts, and thus we can take a break from the constant inner chatter of doubt, worry, fear and feelings of lack and literally recreate our world by changing our thoughts. Take your personal power back and be mindful of what your thinking.

Remember always that what we think eventually harden into habits and if we let them, our habits become us. Make sure they’re good ones that serve you and invite you outside to enjoy the world you’ve created once in a while.

The Adventure of a Lifetime Is Here…Time to Breakthrough!

lady-jumping-across-city-lights-compressed

By Open Bourne | Openhand

Pause for a few moments. Put on some soulful music. Breathe. Let breath carry you deep within. Imagine you’re taking a flight to a favorite destination. Take the seat belt off this one though, and feel the roaring power of the engines sweeping you steadily up aloft into the clouds. Where are you going? Where will it lead? The Great 5D Shift has begun its inexorable ascent.

Welcome to the adventure of a lifetime.
How will it be for you?

Embrace the fear as an Inspirational Doorway

On 3D earth, we’ve now crossed the Rubicon, stepped into unknown territory within this Great 5D Shift of Consciousness. Accelerating, irreversible climate change; society increasingly destabilizing; the “Sixth Mass Moving On” of life is well underway, with species leaving at the phenomenal rate of up to 200 per day. Wow.

Are you afraid? Anxious? It’s okay. It’s understandable. The ‘fight or flight’ mechanism is sparked by such transformational catalytic energy. The mind reacts often, yes, forming judgments about what that might mean. Will I be hurt? Maybe I’ll die? It’s okay. From the moment you were born, you were already embarked on a pathway to your passing on. It’s totally natural. Embrace it and feel into the fear. It’s always a magical doorway into vast expansiveness on the other side.

Contemplate that; feel into it. Is that not incredible? Is it not breathtaking?…

Like the Gazelle swiftly scampering across the savannah, the buffalo stampeding and the salmon leaping up the stream back to its source. What incredible energy. Close your eyes, visualize it now, feel it coursing through your own veins. Let it surge through you by feeling into it.

Nothing to Lose – except the sense of loss itself

Are you concerned about loss? Maybe of favored possessions or our once beautiful habitat. Or most likely, loved ones. It’s an illusion! Loss is not possible to The One in You. Everything is contained within. And the love you feel is, and was, always in your heart. It’s only the mind that ever diminishes that feeling of connection and in-loveness, by needing it to be in a particular form – this way or that.

The paradox is, when you let go of your need for it to be a certain way, you open up to the potential that it can be a multitude of ways – the experience always improving, always evolving.

So what about change? Are you resistant to that? It’s understandable too. The ego likes predictability, it likes the soft comforts that placate it. But in a universe of constant change, change is the only constant. Pause once more. Embrace that. Look for change, feel for it in your life. And let inevitable change confront and unravel the places you get tight, where you’re still hanging on. Feeling the ties unwinding and stripping away inside.

There’s absolutely nothing to lose….except the sense of loss itself!

Take the gloves off

Keep going with my friends. Keep digging. Keep delving deep into all those areas which limit and restrict. Visualize yourself taking the gloves off. Feel as deep as you can into the moment. Penetrate it with intimate sensitivity. Explore – feel through your skin into the tingling energy. Transcend. And as you do, you pick up the flow of the moment – the real one. the one which is now steadily rising and breaking through the foundations of this old reality. Like a flooding river bursting its banks.

Let the current take you.

This is going to be an adventure of a lifetime – of all lifetimes. You have a front row seat. You’re going to witness the most spectacular sights imaginable. Take the blinkers off. See reality the way it really is. As you break through the limitations, a whooshing feeling comes through you. Of amazing power. Like a tsunami. The restraint is breaking. Let the energy increasingly surge through you.

How do you feel to be?
How do you want to express?
What do you feel to do right now?

Authentic Creation follows Authentic Expression

Let the surge carry you to your passion. What brings you alive? What would you die for – do you know yet?
Find it, and the live for it, as if there’s no tomorrow.

If there’s something you know in your heart you really want to do, don’t delay, don’t put off till tomorrow – in the 3D, there may be no tomorrow!

So whatever it is, begin it now. Where you are. With exactly what you’ve got. You already have exactly what you need to begin. And authentic creation follows authentic expression. So if you truly are in the flow of your passion, the right resources will come to meet you. Begin it. Now. This is the adventure of your lifetime!

Time to take Flight

It’s time to take that flight. The 3D window is beginning its slow close, so make sure you find your way to the doorway. As much and often as you can. Unravel your allegiance to the matrix, which is beginning to steadily break itself apart. But there’s no need to fear. Or at least if tear and anxiety grip you at times, let them inspire you by pointing the way to where you now need to work.

These are truly phenomenal times. But only if you fully embrace them. If you Breakthrough the limitations and Break out.

You can do it. You’re meant to do it; seeded to do it.
Go on. Give the flow a chance.

It’s time.

Namaste

Have You Had a “Spiritual Emergency?” – Here’s What You Need to Know

They’ve been called ecstatic experiences, mystical experiences, spiritual or kundalini awakenings, whatever you may call them, they are powerful and often change the experiencer in profound ways.

For some their own peak experience evokes a sense of exuberance and for others, deep anxiety, also referred to as a “Spiritual Emergency.” 

For some, it’s a bit of both.

According to Dr. Robert Davis, a neuroscientist, researcher AND experiencer himself, more people are having deep spiritual awakenings (and spiritual emergencies) than ever before.

Whether triggered by a near death experience, out of body experience or completely out of the blue, the peak experience, which is how Robert Davis refers to it, is a serious and life changing event, and unfortunately our own psychological community has yet to recognize it as a real and valid human experience.

In this conversation with Robert, right on the heels of his ground-breaking book, Unseen Forces, The Integration of Science, Reality and You, he shares his thoughts on what the Peak experience is and why its time to take notice and embrace this most powerful and paradigm shifting event.

Reading Signs & Synchronicities on the Spiritual Path

Spiritual_Philosophy_Signs_and_Synchronicity

Source: Openhand

As you inquire deeper into the real meaning of the moment, and of your life’s purpose, you’ll start to pick up signs and synchronicity, where the field seems to magically click in around you, as if by some pre-ordained force. What’s going on here? How might you best understand, and work with, the signs? They are powerful pointers to your journey of evolution.

This exploration contains a video in the new Openhand Philosophy series…

Moving into Harmony

We live in a world that has become very disconnected from the divine flow. Humanity has created a system based on logical rules and regulations. Conditioning causes people to expect things to work a certain way, and to struggle for some desired outcome. All of this intentioning cuts across the natural flow of life. The result is, everything appears random and haphazard; there’s no apparent deeper meaning and therefore there’s a perceived need to try to control life, to get some kind of outcome.

However when you give up chasing and struggling, the relaxation causes soul consciousness to expand and connect up with the higher flow. You start to realise there IS a deeper meaning to all this, there IS a deeper purpose.

It’s all about revealing the wonder of you… to yourself.

Incredible Power of Benevolence

It feels divinely magical when you sense an incredible power of benevolence, working tirelessly and majestically all around you, sending you signs and messages. It can be truly breath-taking.

Sometimes though it can be frustrating if you don’t understand the signs or how to interpret them. So it’s beneficial to have a general understanding of what they’re working to tell you.

Consider that life is a game of self-realisation; that every moment configures as a reflection of who you truly are – in a feeling way. So you see something noteworthy, your consciousness spikes, and there’s a deep “aha” kind of feeling. That’s when you’re recognising a deeper aspect of yourself – you’re actually beginning to embody deeper aspects of your soul. This is when signs and synchronicity truly help.

You’re in One of Three Cycles in Every Moment

At any moment in your life, whether you know it or not, I put it to you (based on experience with countless evolving people), that you’re in one of these three cycles:

 

  • You’re either processing difficulty and density, where the ego is getting you stuck in identification.
  • You’re breaking through density and unleashing the soul with authentic and aligned aspects of beingness. You feel simply ‘right’.
  • You’re expressing authentically, in an empowered way, and therefore Right Action clicks in for you. You simply know what you have to do now.

 

Here’s the key: whichever of those cycles you’re in, signs and synchronicity will present mirrors of clarity; they’ll tell you about your distorted shadow side, which needs to be worked with or your authentic beingness wanting to break through or you’ll be ready to step into Right Action, supported by the universe.

You’ll notice signs and synchronicity by a kind of spiking “aha” feeling – “Yes, that’s definitely meant for me”.

If you then identify what kind of cycle you’re in – processing density, breakthrough or stepping forward – the signs will give you a great indication of how to approach the moment.

The inner recognition of them, helps the deeper meaning infuse and integrate to become a way of life, a new aspect of being.

Flowing with Right Action

And when you do find yourself flowing with Right Action, everything starts to click in magically around you.

Why would you want to live any other way?

With that in mind, we produced this short video snippet, sharing thoughts from the source on Signs and Synchronicity. With best wishes…

3 Sacred Paths to Reclaiming Your Divinity : Spiritual Journey

Sacred Journey

photo by Elido Turco

By Mateo Sol | Loner Wolf

There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you? ~ Rumi

Most people in the modern world have resigned themselves to a cliched existence, indulging in endless distractions. They go through life with a minimal or pseudo-faith and avoid grasping the emptiness of their lives. They are endlessly haunted by the shallowness of their relationships, neurotic issues, and inescapable loneliness.

And yet there’s so much more to us as a species than what we really know. You and I carry the most mysterious and magnificent qualities within us imaginable, yet we unknowingly guard and protect the great gift that is our Souls from the world. It’s so easy for us to feel meaningless when we perceive ourselves as mere cogs in society’s machine. The truth is that we are much more than slaves of 9 to 5 jobs. We are capable of creating deeply meaningful, mystical and fulfilling lives. We are capable of finding our true calling.

For centuries the indigenous people throughout the world have known that to fully explore the depths of the Soul we must venture into a spiritual journey of the unknown darkness within ourselves. In many ancient cultures, they had Elders and Shamans to encourage and oversee these journeys toward a deeper spiritual existence. Sadly, these days in our own cultures, we have lost such sacred rites and rituals. Instead, orthodox religion has replaced living spirituality with a theoretical god, dismissing and outlawing personal experimentation and union with the Divine.

People have felt this pull toward something greater than themselves since the beginning of time. Ancient cultures had many stories that served to illustrate the journey to wholeness or Nirvana. These journeys mythologist Joseph Campbell described as the “Calls to Adventure.” A call to adventure is something we all experience at least once in life. When we embark on this adventure, we begin the process of gaining self-understanding and reclaiming our precious soul gifts.

The archetype of the hero or heroine discovering their true spiritual nature goes back thousands of years. The Greek’s told the story of Orpheus who descended into the underworld to rescue his bride Eurydice from Hades. The Nordic people had their hero-warrior Beowulf, and the Sumerian’s wrote of Inanna who battled her sister in the dark world. Through history, there have been so many stories of individuals who have struggled through hardship to find themselves.

These heroes symbolize our spiritual journeys: of leaving everything behind, entering the unknown, encountering countless unconscious monsters, and finally returning back home with a sense of renewed fulfillment and wisdom.

The Three Worlds of the Spiritual Journey

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep. People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open. Don’t go back to sleep. ~ Rumi

At some point in life, we all experience the “call to adventure.” Often our journeys start when we experience sudden spiritual awakenings or the dark night of the soul. Often without wanting to, we are cast onto the path of soul expansion.

Like you, I have wandered these paths and have at times wound up lost and confused. For this reason, I find it useful to map out the spiritual journey in a way that helps the human mind know where it is, and where it will go next. My Andean ancestry speaks of three worlds that we can experience in life: the Upper World(Hanaq Pacha), the Middle World (Kay Pacha) and the Lower World (Ukhu Pacha).

 In many traditions and mythologies, these three worlds correspond to the different realms of Self. The Upper World is the home of Spirit, the Underworld the home of Souls, and the Middle World is the home of the physical body and human ego. Different practices and techniques are used in each of the three realms to help us spiritually mature and rediscover joy, peace, and wholeness.

Below I’ll explore each of these realms with you:

Middle World

Purpose: Personality development

In our everyday lives, we function within the middle world. The middle world is responsible for our ego development, and yet many people on the spiritual path ignore this vital element of inner growth. Without developing a healthy personality, our spiritual growth reaches a dead end.

In life, we all begin within the middle world, or physical realm. As children and teenagers, we go through various years of personality change and growth. Finally, as adults, we all have developed unique personalities. Yet many of us fail to continue our self-development, getting lost in corporate jobs and the pursuit of money, status, and fame.

The goal of the middle world path is to develop a healthy personality or ego. Tasks involved in this process involve the exploration of core emotional wounds, self-love, and the cultivation of authenticity. A healthy adult ego will be able to love freely, be vulnerable, express creativity, and display empathy towards others.

We cannot develop a healthy personality by using techniques from the Upper or Under World such as meditation or shadow work. Instead, we must use techniques that pertain to ego development and healing such as assertiveness training, non-violent communication techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, NLP, and other psychological avenues of self-development.

Under World

Purpose: Soul discovery

Our Soul is the vital, mysterious and wild core of our individual selves. It is a unique essence in each of us that goes deeper than our personalities. Think of the Soul as one of many streams that run back to the ocean of Spirit, or one of many unique clouds on the endless sky of Spirit. Our Souls contain our heartfelt purposes, unique meanings, gifts, and the ultimate significance of our individual lives. To access these deep layers and qualities we must descend into the Under World of our unconscious minds.

Unfortunately, for thousands of years, our culture has “protected” us from the hardships and dangers of the descent into the Soul. This has been done through the establishment of comfortable, predictable and clockwork lives that revolve around material pleasures and shallow values. In fact, thanks to religious thought, the descent into our Under Worlds has been condemned as “evil” and wayward. Only Shamanic cultures and a few Western mystical schools like Hermeticism and Alchemy have dedicated themselves to exploring the Under World.

The descent into the Under World has been so feared and avoided because it is a perilous journey. There is a reason why Christianity referred to this place as “hell.” Within our, Under Worlds lie our repressed thoughts, feelings, desires, and even denied gifts. Often when we descend or ascend, into ourselves, we come across many demons, ghastly creatures and other parts of our Shadow Selves that we’ve been hiding from.

Yet despite the fact that the Under World journey can be such a harrowing and haunting experience, it is ultimately a powerful odyssey. Only by descending into our personal Under Worlds can we truly come to terms with our true life callings, talents, gifts, and deepest values.

Under World, or soul work techniques, include practices that allow us to access altered states of consciousness. These may include crafts such as lucid dreaming, drumming, shadow work, shamanic trances, vision quests, etc.

Upper World

Purpose: Uniting with Spirit

The Upper World journey, or that of the ascent, is what we often refer to as Self-Realization. There comes a moment in our journey between the middle world and the underworld in which a perfect balance is formed, allowing us to move up into the Upper World. For example, it’s much harder to “Spiritually Awaken” to the Upper World when our unconscious minds are plagued with deep childhood traumas (that stem from the underworld), trust issues (underworld problem) and poor self-esteem (middle world problem).

We enter the path of ascent into the Upper World when we learn to surrender our ego identification and soul identification. Ultimately, we not only intellectually understand that everything is One, but we experience it at a core level. At this point, we are free from the illusion of having a separate self. This has also been commonly referred to as the state of Enlightenment. (I’ve written about this topic further in this article.)

This permanent shift of consciousness is about merging with the Infinite, Divine, Eternal and Absolute. Techniques used to taste this state of being are often found in the mystical schools of Zen, Kundalini, Taoism, Sufism, and disciplines such as meditation and yoga.

Note: Unfortunately many people in the spiritual community believe that ascension is all that is needed to experience peace and wholeness. As a result, the middle world and underworld paths have been cast aside as if they don’t matter. However, only focusing on your “higher chakras,” cultivating positivity and oneness with Spirit, creates lopsided individuals. When the darker and more down-to-earth elements of self-growth are ignored, the result is imbalanced and unhealthy individuals.

Preparing For Your Journey

The spiritual journey to enlightenment is not like climbing a mountain. We rarely start at the bottom and climb to the top. Instead, for most of us the spiritual journey is like hiking through a beautiful, but a perilous range of valleys. Our spiritual journeys alternate between periods of descending and ascending. In one period of our lives, we may cultivate our connection with Spirit, while in other parts we may descend to the Soul to heal core wounds, or the middle world to develop self-love.

Finally, it is very possible and also quite common to get hung up in these valleys. Many of us become lost, distracted, and even forget why we were trying to get to the top of the mountain in the first place. However, with guidance, willpower, and persistence, we can make our way through.

In the end, you will find that the spiritual journey is like a mystical marriage between the ego, the Soul, and the Spirit. One cannot exist without the other.

Atlantis Rising! Upgrade your Akashic Records

By Jill Mattson | * www.jillswingsoflight.com

The Atlantis “Myth” may be the most enduring grand mystery of all time… an enigma that was famously recorded by Plato around 360 BC (and it was ancient at that time!).  Atlantis has captured the interest and imagination of countless generations; over 2,000 books have been written on this most famous “Lost Continent”.  It has even been suggested that the longevity of the “myth”, and mankind’s fascination with Atlantis is due to the memory of Atlantis in our collective subconscious – indelibly written into The Akashic Record.

The last Golden Age of Atlantis, was the most spiritual time experienced on this Earth. Atlantis’s Glory was eclipsed, but now her ancient wisdom and wonder is rebirthing in the upcoming Golden Age. Masters, old and new, have long foretold that there would arise a NEW Golden Age.

Sages have linked “Golden Ages” – periods in which the Earth is bathed in harmonious energy – to the beginning of a Platonic Year Cycle. A Platonic Year is one cycle of the equinoxes around the ecliptic lasting about 26,000 years. At the end of an old Platonic cycle there is much discord and disruption – in the earth’s weather and geologic activity as well as in the affairs of men. The beginning of a new Platonic Year is a time of rebirth and renewal.

The past Golden Age of Atlantis was the pinnacle of Spiritual attainment, ever experienced on Earth. After shining eons, Atlantis vanished… but NOW, Her Ancient Wisdom and Glory are reborn. This time is unlike any other. The catalyst for the beautiful coming age is Lightworkers, like You! It is time to unleash your ancient mastery!

Many of us sense… there is a far deeper truth beyond our physical realms. We CAN open our hearts and our eyes to a new reality and change our lives as a result. We can prepare ourselves for the ultimate step. We will accelerate our spiritual scope and growth. Part of Ascension and Enlightenment require opening to the deeper truths, trusting our natural feelings and reconnecting with our roots.

The longevity and the endurance of the Atlantis “Myth” are due to the permanent place this Magical Kingdom holds in our collective subconscious. Atlantis – to us – is like an instinct in a wild animal – it is naturally present in our genes & in our souls.

The Signs are Everywhere

The signs are clear – from old Mayan predictions, Nostradamus, Old Hebrew, John the Beloved (in Revelations: Bible) … and many others – the alignment of the stars and the events around us tell that the dawn of the New Age is at hand. We can recapture the mastery of Atlantis! Her secrets are being revealed to us! The powerful tool of the Akashic Records has been regifted to mankind to aid us in transforming our souls.

The doors to the destruction of the old and the realization of our destiny are open. There will be upheaval and devastation, but equally rebirth and renewal. Destructive weather and false prophets will churn the world. Political instability and chaos will threaten. But also, miracles and wonders will occur … biblical events come alive. The Lost Continent will reveal all of her secrets once again.

Think to the undeniable evidence at hand: weather calamities and natural disasters are becoming more numerous than in any period we know of… tremendous hurricanes and storms, torrential rains and severe droughts; earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of extreme violence. These – ever more prevalent natural disasters – portend monumental changes. Whatever your political views – I believe it is unassailable that political extremism is out of control. International tensions are at generational highs. More and more countries possess nuclear weapons… the earth’s ecosystem is failing… what can an individual do?

Take heart, do NOT despair, for truly Atlantis IS Rising… within You! Our collective energy will open the forbidden seals and release the secrets and marvels of a great civilization long past.

Akashic Records

The Akashic records were located in the Great Atlantean Crystal Pyramid in the 5th dimension that is not visible to mankind at this time. Being so powerful, they have been closed to mankind for thousands of years to prevent misuse. Within the last hundreds of years, the door to this transformational tool has been reopened… preparing for…. Atlantis Rising.

What exactly is the Akashic Record? I like the description of it as the Akashic Field because a field (like a force field or a gravitational field) more clearly helps us conceptualize what the Akashic Record is – an infinite collection of indestructible energies that capture the life force and spirit force of all life and all consciousness. Everything – past, present and future about you is written indelibly in the Akashic Field. Science even suggests that consciousness is vibrating fields of energies and information (Akashic Records). Energy can be changed. And it must! …As we step into our own mastery. Your soul wants you to upgrade, rewrite all negative histories and unwanted traits … upgrade your vibrations… and yes it can be done! The universe is your friend.

Understand the real roots of today’s problems in relationships, health and work. How did a past life impact this one? Break contracts/patterns with unwanted people, energies and health issues that continually show up in your life. Undo fears, phobias, emotional patterns, genetic patterns and blockages. Allow the Akashic records to run foreword to insure you are happy with the outcome.

Why do you want to look at your Akashic Records? In past lives, you may have talents and abilities that you want to connect with? Do you like Music, Art? Architecture? Travel? Selling? John Lennon dreamed (i.e., accessed his Akashic records) the song Imagine before he “wrote” it. Pick stocks, find a new place to live that will suit you, love interests, work partners, understanding of your moods, to alter your job or get a new one….

Look at the worldwide knowledge about the Akashic Records:

  • Every moment you write new Akashic records. Jesus said, “As a man thinketh, so is he.”
  • Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) Access Akashic records to create the life we want now.
  • Jewish tradition – the Book of Life is opened on Rosh Hashanah – to look and atone before God sets karma/punishment. (they know what is written can be atoned for and changed.
  • Exodus 32:32, “If you will not forgive their sin, blot me out of your Book of Life.”
  • Revelations 20:12 – “and the books were opened, which is the Book of Life; the dead were judged according to what was written in the books.”
  • Philippians 20:12 “Help these women… whose names are in the Book of Life
