My Out-Of-Body Awakening

by Owen Waters

In 1963, at the ripe old age of 13, I found myself floating in the air, just below the ceiling, looking down on my body. Today, we are used to hearing about near-death or conscious out-of-body experiences but, back then, nobody knew anything… and it was just plain terrifying!

Some people report out-of-body experiences after a horrendous car wreck, a heart attack or some other life-threatening emergency. In my case, I was just being happy!

Alto or Tenor horn

Really, I was playing music on my alto horn in a brass band. I was sitting, reading the sheet music on a stand in front of me and there was this long, low note that I had to play. In fact, it seemed extra long… like time had slowed down… and then it started to sound strange, like there was another noise in my ears.

Suddenly, my consciousness rose up out of the top of my head, continued on up to the ceiling and I found myself looking down on the sheet music stand.

My first thought from my new position above the stand was, “Now I can’t read the next note.” Then, realization about my situation struck home with sudden horror!

I sprang back into my body almost instantly and sat there, dazed and amazed. My out-of-body trip was one big wake-up call and it began my lifelong quest for answers to spiritual mysteries.

Back in 1963, metaphysical topics were rarely discussed, so it was just not appropriate to stand up in a room full of two dozen band members and yell, “I have arisen… all the way out of my body!”

Nurse Ratched in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”

They might have called for men in white coats to come and take me away to the tender mercies of some Nurse Ratched look-alike!

Other spiritual experiences have followed my early out-of-body trip, but none quite as attention-getting as the distinct impression that I’d just died!

That was one big wake-up call and it began my lifelong quest for answers to spiritual mysteries.

Flash forward to 2014: It’s OK to talk about such things now. Even medical doctors are writing about out-of-body and afterlife experiences. The world has changed.

Metaphysical understanding today is light years ahead of where it was in my early years and I am so glad to have been a part of that movement toward better spiritual understanding.

Today, I understand much more about out-of-body experiences and many other metaphysical mysteries of life.

In Space, No One Can See the Stars

by Owen Waters

In the daytime, you can see the Sun in the sky and, at night, you can see the stars. But, if you go far up into outer space, you will NOT see the Sun and you will NOT see the stars!

Apollo 11 above the Moon

Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, reported that he could not see the stars while on his way to the moon. Worse yet, he found himself flying blind because his navigation device needed to take sight readings of the stars to maintain Apollo 11’s correct trajectory.

Why do the stars turn invisible once you’re out in space? That was my exact question when an ascended master introduced me to a dead scientist! One of the great things about knowing ascended masters is that, once in a while, they introduce you to someone who can help you understand something new. One day in February 2013, the spirit form of quantum physics pioneer Wolfgang Pauli (1900-1958) showed up in my study!

He’s quite a character and I immediately took a liking to him. He wanted me to know that, in the afterlife, science is not so mystified about quantum physics. In fact, what people call quantum weirdness is not, in fact, weird at all. However, it does take an expanded mindset to be able to grasp the spiritual underpinnings of physical reality. He says that physicists who insist that there is nothing beyond physical matter will never understand these things until they expand their worldview to, at least, include the metaphysical nature of light.

Etheric energy is the key to understanding the nature of light. Also called vital life energy, prana, chi or, more recently, plasma, etheric energy is a subtle, pre-physical energy which is not visible to physical human eyes. For example, our eyes don’t see spirit people because physical eyes don’t see their etheric bodies.

Cosmologists have detected the presence of huge amounts of etheric energy and matter in space but, because their eyes don’t see these things, they call them “dark energy” and “dark matter.” That’s rather ironic. Wolfgang assures me that, with spirit vision, etheric energy is not dark at all. Quite the opposite. To him, the air is filled with what looks like a sunlit mist because he sees that energy in the air.

The answer to my question, he continued, is that there is an etheric energy component to light. In its free-to-travel form, light is charged with etheric energy in addition to its well-known electric and magnetic energies. In fact, the nonphysical etheric energy encases and shrouds the physical electromagnetic energy from view.

When a particle of light hits a barrier, or is deflected by an obstruction, it loses its etheric charge and become visible to physical human eyes.

This happens because, when light hits a barrier and is forced to change course, its non-physical etheric energy component carries on as if no barrier had been encountered, much like a ghost passing through a physical wall. The physical (electromagnetic) component of the light, now diverted onto a different path and free of its nonphysical shroud, becomes visible to physical human eyes.

The Hubble telescope

In its travels from the Sun to the Earth, light is encased in etheric energy, shrouding its physical electromagnetic energy from view. The Earth’s atmosphere diverts incoming light particles, breaking them up to make the Sun visible and the sky blue. The mirrors in a space telescope such as the Hubble interfere with light, stripping away the etheric component and making it visible. In a deep-space craft, you could see the stars through a window provided the window includes a diffraction grating to interfere with the light.

The solar wind carries the magnetospheric wind away from Earth.

The Earth’s magnetosphere also interferes with light, making it visible. At the time of a full moon, the magnetosphere stretches out from Earth to the Moon. So, had Neil Armstrong flown at the time of a full moon, he would have seen the stars just fine. As it happened, he flew at a new moon and lost sight of the stars until he came close to the Moon, which has its own local magnetosphere.

So, you can see light after it has reflected off an object and you can see also light after it collides with molecules of air in our atmosphere. But, if you travel up above the atmosphere and into outer space, all the light from the Sun and the stars is traveling in an etherically charged, high energy state. That’s why you won’t see the stars. Their light is traveling in its visually-shrouded state.

The good news is that, when you turn around, you’ll still see the Earth shining brightly, beckoning you home. Why? Because the sunlight that hits the earth’s atmosphere loses its metaphysical, etheric energy charge, dropping down to a physical energy level so that you can see its effects on the clouds and the ground.

Etheric energy is the missing energy in today’s science. Until it is recognized and fully understood, it won’t establish its destined role in our growing understanding of the universe. As a primary energy, the science and applications of etheric energy will be magnitudes greater in importance than everything that has been achieved to date in electrical and electronic science.

In Summary: The Dark Light Effect

The Dark Light Effect is that light – which consists of etheric, magnetic, and electric energies – travels through free space in an etherically-cloaked state until it encounters a reflective barrier or becomes diverted by physical particles or a magnetic field, at which point it becomes separated from its etheric component, becoming uncloaked and physically visible.

Postscript: Flying Blind

So, how did Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 flight make its navigational adjustments on the way to the moon? While his eyes failed to see the stars, the navigational computer was still functional because it contained a reflector mirror. When the device was pointed to where the stars should have been and the light of the relevant star entered the device, it physically bounced off the internal mirror and the device functioned as planned.

The Transformative Power of Love

by Owen Waters

Because the Creator’s energy of unconditional love fills the universe, it can be your most powerful resource for transformation.

If you have a big challenge facing you in life, you already know what needs to be transformed, but what if you don’t know about something important that’s holding you back?

Here’s an easy way to flush out the most hidden of limiting beliefs from the depths of your subconscious mind and bring them out into your conscious awareness where you can apply a simple technique of transformation. The result? Greater freedom and inner joy from one simple but effective step. Here’s how it’s done…

First, bring any limiting thoughts to the surface by making a claim that might be considered outrageous. Well, it won’t be outrageous when the world becomes heart-centered and everyone supports each other but, for now, tradition says it may seem outrageous.

First, put yourself into a quiet reflective state, then mentally state to yourself, “I am brilliant, gorgeous, and fabulous!”

What happens then? Chances are, due to the social environment that most of us grew up in, you were taught to never make such claims because there’s supposed to be something-or-other wrong with thinking that way.

Well, sure, if a child runs the risk of becoming a raving, unsociable egomaniac, then there would be something wrong with thinking that way. But as an adult with a developing sense of spiritual consciousness, ego issues are no longer the point.

In the New Reality, the point is to develop your potential and become everything that you can be.

In a healthy, heart-centered society, everyone will either be brilliant, gorgeous and fabulous already or well on their way to becoming so. And the rest of society will be supporting them in every attempt that they make to improve their lives. After all, wouldn’t you rather live among people who are brilliant, gorgeous, fabulous and supportive than among people who are envious, small-minded and competitive?

As you probably just noticed in this exercise, blockages are likely to emerge when you say wonderful things about yourself. When you say, “I am brilliant, gorgeous, and fabulous!” what thoughts come up to the surface of your mind?

Probably a lot of “Yes, but I don’t feel…” statements. Those are your blockages, or limiting beliefs. Now, here’s how to dissolve them so that they won’t limit your happiness any longer.

Having identified a blockage and brought it out into the open where it can be worked on, you are able to apply energy work to transform it out of your life once and for all.

Your heart has a wonderful ability to transform limiting beliefs by the application of its natural frequency of consciousness, which is that of unconditional love.

While your physical heart is tucked away behind your rib cage, the energy center of your heart is outside of your body, just in front of your breastbone. It is here that the frequency of heart-centered consciousness is focused. Visualize this energy center as a small sphere of brilliant white light four inches (ten centimeters) in front of the center of your chest.

Imagine the air being filled with vital life energy, like a white mist that fills the space around you. The air actually is filled with such vital life energy, and the point of the exercise is to draw additional quantities of this energy in to add extra power to your heart’s energy center.

Now that your heart’s energy center is charged with intense life energy, use its natural frequency of unconditional love to transform each blockage in turn. Whatever blockage you identified, say to yourself mentally:

“I release the belief that [blockage statement] and transform it into the light now. I replace that old belief with the knowing that I am loved and that I am Love.”

For example, “I release the belief that money is bad and transform it into the light now. I replace that old belief with the knowing that I am loved and that I am Love.”

Notice that you don’t have to state the opposite of the old belief. You just transform it and release it using the energy of unconditional love as the transformative power.

Here’s what happens. Releasing the old belief creates an absence, or a vacuum, that wants to be filled. Nature abhors a vacuum, so you replace the old belief with the pure unconditional love that flows throughout the universe and fill this vacuum with positive energy.

The statement, “knowing that I am loved,” is an affirmation of your awareness that the universe is filled with the love of God and that you only have to tune into this love to feel its power and eternal support.

Everything and everyone exists in a universe filled with unconditional love. It’s the way the universe was designed.

Author’s note: This technique was first released in my book on the next stage of world spiritual awakening, Love, Light, Laughter: The New Spirituality.

Life-Choking Limitation

by Owen Waters

Are you struggling financially? Is your monthly budget mapped out to the tiniest degree with nothing extra to spare? Have your money worries become a giant pain in the neck?

For spiritual people, this is often one big reason why…

Poverty can afflict spiritual seekers more than others because of past lives. Often in the past, a serious-minded spiritual seeker would incarnate for the purpose of exploring life as a monk or a nun.

The vow of poverty that came with such a decision was no problem. At the time, it was a great idea. After all, they would be supported in their life of service by a monastery or nunnery. The problem is what happened later.

You were born into this life with a full memory of all your past lives – and vows – tucked away in your subconscious mind. Vows that had no expiry date keep on affecting you. They keep on going and going, molding the way your conscious mind sees life.

Many of us have been monks or nuns in past lives, renounced money, and trained ourselves to think that money is a distraction from spiritual pursuits. Then, in this life, we wonder why money becomes such a focus, simply because there is never enough of it to pay the bills!

Poverty and Prosperity

In my case, I have spent this entire life as a dedicated spiritual seeker. I have experienced poverty and I have experienced prosperity. As a child, my family was so poor that I was one of the few kids who qualified for free meals at school. Shopping for fun never crossed our minds; we only replaced clothes and shoes when the old ones were well and truly worn out.

Later, I decided to try affluence instead. Wow, what a difference! I lived in “Beverly Hills, 90210” before it ever became a TV show. I drove a brand-new luxury car that belonged to me, not the bank. I had no debts and enjoyed the good things in life to the fullest. In affluent neighborhoods, you sense a palpable aura of comfort that fills the air.

I went the whole nine yards. Tailor-made suits and shirts, a shiny Rolex, five-star dinner parties that started with champagne and caviar. It was fun while I explored a new view of life, even if it was tiring to keep running inside that “hamster wheel” all day at the office.

Did all that detract from my spiritual pursuits? Not at all. I learned more new things about spirituality at that time than I ever had before. The monk thing didn’t get in my way because I’ve never done a vow of poverty in any past life. I was a monk once, back when the Buddha was alive, but that was at a time when the whole poverty vow idea hadn’t been invented yet.

So, unencumbered by a vow of poverty that can haunt a person’s subconscious mind, I showed that a person can be poor or prosperous – either way, there’s no barrier – it’s simply a choice.

Now, if you have been haunted by the conviction that poverty is next to saintliness and find yourself continually struggling to pay the bills, what choice do you have? Well, you can dig up that old vow of poverty and consciously release yourself from it, even if you don’t remember the past life details about how and when it happened.

Poverty used to allow monks and nuns to focus on serving their institutions. In today’s commercial world, however, it causes severe, life-choking limitation. If you harbor the hidden belief that your bank account should be perpetually empty, then by letting go of that unconscious, constrictive belief in poverty you will open up huge avenues of personal freedom.

A life of adventure and discovery awaits you

In today’s world, especially when you are retired, you can only pursue your greatest joys if you have the necessary resources. Travel, study, adventures and hobbies all take funds. At one time, a vow of poverty let you focus on your purpose. Today, however, it can make you miss out on many of the potentially fun experiences and consciousness-expanding opportunities in life.

I am about to give you a way to release any vow of poverty that may be residing in your subconscious mind. Once you have released such a barrier to your own natural abundance, you can create a new life of freedom from financial limitation.

Thoughts are creative. When you focus an intention, the nature of the universe is to mold itself into that intention. The universe is abundant. If you think you have lack, the universe will create the perception of lack; then your life will be filled with an abundance of lack.

The Missing Part of “The Secret”

Of course, prosperity doesn’t just materialize because you wish it to be so. Intention alone won’t do the trick. The Law of Creation has three parts: Intention, Feeling, and an essential third component – Action. What action is needed?

Increase the value of your service to society. Observe what people need and help them connect with it. Whatever new skills you need to make yourself more useful, there are books that will teach you these at little or no cost.

Once you release any subconscious vows that no longer serve you, it feels perfectly fine to accept a financial exchange of energy for services rendered.

Money is an energetic measure of your value to others. Its abundance makes you abundantly free to choose.

Now, you’ve probably heard that the love of money detracts from spiritual pursuits, and so it does. But let’s get it right. It’s the LOVE of money that’s the issue, not the money itself or the practical requirement that you will be fairly paid for your services.

After all, money is the way we share our labors in this complex modern world. We are no longer in the agricultural age, trading potatoes for milk or clothes or wood. We specialize in our work and we use the form of energy called money as a medium of exchange for an endless variety of the results of other people’s specialties.

If you don’t enjoy the full freedom of the financial abundance that you deserve as a spiritual person, do the following release exercise. The result can be like the difference between night and day.

Here’s Your Ticket to Freedom

Right now, make the following personal declaration of release. Enter a quiet state, become inspired by the thought of the conscious universe or the ultimate state of Infinite Being and then declare with feeling;

“By the power vested in me by my existence within Infinite Being, I now cancel all unconscious vows and obligations which no longer serve me. I thank them for how they have served me in the past and I release them now. I replace them with the unconditional love and abundance which flows through all of Creation. I AM Infinite Being.”

The next day, if you find yourself haunted by any nagging doubts about whether you deserve your full worth as a spiritual human being who is bettering the world, repeat the process. If necessary, keep repeating for as long as it takes.

The world is waiting for you to become free in every way to rise to your life’s full potential.

The Physics of Tao

by Owen Waters

In 1975, Fritjof Capra’s book The Tao of Physics set out to explore the parallels between the worldviews of modern physics and Eastern mysticism. The author’s conclusion was that the two were, not just consistent, but in perfect harmony with each other.

Physics has advanced in many ways in recent decades and so has mysticism with its understanding of the universe. In particular, many insights into the mysteries of the universe have emerged from the spiritual revolution in the West.

From the mystic perspective, the universe was created by Original Consciousness, Tao, or Infinite Being, focusing through an active Creator aspect of itself. The mystic asks, “How did God create this?” while hoping for a glimpse into the cosmic manufacturer’s mind. One thing’s for sure with such a mystical approach: You find a lot more answers when you open up to the idea of higher energies than by insisting that nothing exists beyond physical matter.

To the materialist, thoughts are just electrical signals firing somewhere inside the brain. If that were true, then you’d be like an electronic computer with pre-programmed rules – no self-awareness, no imagination, no free will, no curiosity, and no feelings! Your mind is not your brain and mind energy is not electrical. Mind energy is one of those higher energies that the Creator saw fit to create.

One of the mysteries facing physics is a type of experiment which reveals that related energy particles can communicate with each other much faster than the speed of light. How could this be possible, they ask, when the speed of light is supposed to limit all action in the universe?

In the view of physics today, all energies can travel at the speed of light and no faster. That’s because of the assumption that all energies must be down-to-earth, material, electromagnetic energies. Well, how about those higher energies?

In the broader picture, we don’t just live in a conscious universe, the universe IS conscious! All things are composed of consciousness because the universe was created from the only available material – consciousness.

We know that physical matter is composed of energy, but from what is energy made?

Energy is compressed consciousness.

There is not just one level of energy in existence. The next higher energy above electric energy is etheric, or vital life, energy. Electric energy is a compressed form of the higher, etheric energy.

What’s above etheric energy? All levels of mind energy, from the lowest to the most inspired. Feeling and thought are the yin and yang of mind energy. Both varieties intertwine all the way up into the realms of spirit, of soul consciousness, and beyond into the cosmic realms.

So, how do those two energy particles communicate with each other faster than the speed of light? The answer is easy to appreciate once your worldview is expanded…

Mind energy travels at millions of times the speed of light.

The two particles in the physics experiment communicate at the speed of thought, and the speed of light has no bearing upon the situation. Like everything in the universe, those particles contain awareness. In a universe comprised of consciousness, nothing can exist without consciousness. As particles of a fundamental nature, their awareness may be rudimentary, but their display of feeling is quite obvious to the observer. As related particles, they have developed a connection with each other and their willingness to communicate demonstrates this bond. Thought and feeling are the materials from which this conscious universe is made.

From the vast fabric of space to the tiniest fundamental energy particle, everything is conscious and everything is comprised of consciousness.

Mind energy exists on a scale that rises into the higher realms of awareness like a stairway to heaven. Higher consciousness is very real and it can be yours by turning your attention within, spending time daily in reflection or meditation, and opening up to the intuitive knowingness which resides within your own soul level of consciousness.

Expanded awareness isn’t just for mystics. It opens the doors of perception where you can understand far more about the nature of reality. It brings you closer to the eternal fountain of joy and wisdom which lies within the soul consciousness of each and every one of us.

The Compassion of the Sun

by Owen Waters

As consciousness transforms to a higher level, respect for the Divine is replacing the traditional concept of worship. Respect for the works of the Creator springs from the virtue of kindness. It engenders gratitude for life and all that supports life.

Heartfelt gratitude and respect for the Divine opens up the pathway to the further expansion of a person’s consciousness.

In the science of Spiritual Metaphysics, we understand that, along the ascending stairway to unity with the Divine, there are stages of cosmic existence to which we will one day return. We came down through those levels on the way to this life and we will return the same way we came.

One day, in the distant future, you will have grown to become one with the consciousness of a planet, then a sun, and then even a galaxy!

The souls of Mother Earth and Father Sun are examples of the cosmic levels of existence which await us along our journey home to the Divine. To express this in terms of density levels of existence, we live in physical third density (3D), our souls live in nonphysical 5D, the soul of Mother Earth is based in 7D, the Sun is based in 8D, and the galaxy is based in 9D. Beyond the Ninth is the Creator, as all levels of existence are contained within the mind of that Source.

In the year 2012, I was among the few voices who said that the end of the Mayan calendar cycles would be a gateway to a new cycle and not the end of the world as many feared at the time. End-times stories were everywhere, spreading fear for the future and distracting spiritual seekers from the inspiration in their lives.

Today, another version of end-of-the-world fear is circulating. It claims that the Sun is getting ready to go into a calamitous micronova. Some fear-mongers get even more creative and claim there are space arks, piloted by extraterrestrials, ready to come to our rescue and take us off-planet to avoid such a fate. They make no mention of what we’d be returning to if the electronic infrastructure of civilization had been fried, but let’s not ruin a good scare-story by asking common sense questions!

Like kindness, common sense is a virtue to nurture. I am reminded of another piece of fear propaganda which also seems to be designed to distract spiritual seekers from their paths. The “Death Traps” story started as a work of fiction and, somehow, was picked up and promoted as if it was fact. In this scare-story, they say that when you die, the white light that beckons you upwards isn’t an opening to the brighter light of the spirit realms, it’s a trap where your memory will be erased. Oh, really?

Well, thank goodness for common sense. If that were true, then the afterlife would be filled with amnesic zombies when, in fact your nearest and dearest are perfectly fine with their memories intact and, somehow, they always turn up for a big reunion on the day you are ready to pass on into their world. People who have had Near Death Experiences also provide evidence that this scare-story is pure fiction. The inhabitants of the afterlife know exactly who they are and remember what they did during their physical lives.

Getting back to the possibility of a life-ending threat from the Sun, here’s a question. But first, remember that this one law of the universe. The universe is benevolent because that is the nature of its Creator.

Would the Sun, which is so much closer to the Creator than us, choose to:

A) Knowingly destroy humanity with a blast of energy, or…

B) Protect humanity from all possible disasters, not only out of compassion for all life, but because we are in a critical stage of our awakening to the next level of consciousness?

Common sense says that we should stop entertaining ideas from people who think that spreading fear is entertaining, and remember this basic truth…

We are children of the Sun.

The Good News About Karma

by Owen Waters

Karma is very different from what most people think it is. The word itself, usually prefixed by the word “bad,” generates ideas of retribution or punishment for past misadventures. Somewhere in the heavens above, so people imagine, an accountant is supposed to be keeping track of your karmic balance.

I used to assume that karma was all about maintaining a balance, so therefore the universe contained some law that made it reflective in nature and therefore automatically self-balancing. However, I stand corrected by recent revelations from my senior guide and mentor, an archangel who serves humanity during these times of transition in the vitally essential office of Lord Protector of The Shift.

Karma is an effect of creation. There is no inherent reflective capability in the universe. The apparent reflections, which people sometimes call their karma, come from the ongoing patterns of consciousness which they have created.

Each of us has a karmic pattern, which is like a tapestry filled with a variety of cross-linked energies. It is held within the energetically magnetic aura that surrounds your body.

Each thread woven into your karmic pattern was placed there by your creation of a certain pattern of consciousness. Each created thread within the tapestry of your karmic pattern exists because you have given it life. It will continue to exist and attract circumstances to itself as long as you feed its existence.

The Law of Creation is invoked when intention and feeling are set into motion.

Yin and Yang in motion

Intention is the yang component as it sets the frequency of consciousness. Emotion sets the yin component of magnetic attraction which, by its nature, attracts relevant circumstances into one’s life.

People often ask if their karmic pattern can be changed. Yes, it can. It changes all the time.

What has been created and empowered by an emotional charge will soon fade away when that emotional charge no longer supports it. In a more sudden fashion, a rise in consciousness can transform a karmic pattern.

For example, if someone were intent on jealousy as a way of life and then they experienced a sudden awakening which transformed them to a higher level of thought, their life could change at that very moment. They could decide to become loving and forgiving instead of continuing to feed the old jealousy pattern. That decision would be the end of the jealousy part of their karmic pattern. It would be taken out of existence by the transformation which made the person no longer interested in feeding that pattern of consciousness. The former creation would dissipate, its energy being released back to the universe, and it would stop generating karmic circumstances.

In Summary

The Law of Karma is an effect of the Law of Creation. Your overall karmic pattern is a collection of each thought pattern you have created. It can change as you raise your level of consciousness through spiritual growth but the Law of Karma never ceases to operate. It is always in full operation at all levels of Creation, attracting those patterns you have created through your intentions, feelings and actions.

Here’s the Especially Good News

The Law of Karma guarantees that when you give, you will receive. When you heal, you will receive healing. When you teach what you have learned to others, you will find that even greater insights dawn within you as a result.

If you decide with all your heart that you will succeed in fulfilling your soul purpose in this life, that adds a thread to your karmic pattern which will affect your present and future. Like a magnet drawing resources and circumstances toward you, this thread of intention will help you navigate through life to fulfill your wish in every possible way.

Why Prayers Can Fail To Work

by Owen Waters

The world is full of reasons why people might pray for help from a higher source. From the threat of war to an exploding health crisis to the pressures of a cratering economy, you’ve got to wonder why the Creator allows all this. After all, a challenge will always bring personal growth but the accelerating rate of change in everything today is like a cosmic wake-up call. But, we might ask, to wake up to what?

The truth is, we are sparks of the Divine, empowered with free will so that we can forge a path back to divine consciousness through the Three C’s – the attributes we have inherited from our divine origins – Curiosity, Creativity, and Constructive action. With these, we should be able to handle anything but, all the same, a little help from above would be more than welcome in these crazy days of rapid change.

Tradition has it that you pray to God for favors and sometimes offer something in exchange, like, for example, a promise to turn to God more regularly. However, in these days of cosmology, it is increasingly difficult to imagine that the Creator of billions of galaxies, each with billions of suns, would micro-manage problems on one tiny planet. So, perhaps, seeking attention from a more people-focused aspect of the divine hierarchy makes a whole lot more sense.

All levels of existence in the universe exist within the consciousness of the Creator. Within that envelope of consciousness in which the universe lives, the highest realm of consciousness is ninth density, which is home to the soul essences of galaxies. Each galaxy is responsible for Creator functions within its field of consciousness. Likewise, each sun is responsible for the creation of its planets and each planet develops and maintains the systems of life within its realm. These days, not too many people pray to the Sun or Mother Earth, but you can gain enormous spiritual growth by sending regular thoughts of gratitude to these cosmic beings. The inspirational energy feedback from such elevated beings is phenomenal.

The next level down the divine hierarchy of consciousness is the sixth-density realm of archangels and angels. This is where one of the most called-upon higher beings is based, and for good reason. Jesus operates as an all-pervasive spirit with global reach within all the realms of existence upon earth. When someone reaches out to Jesus for help, his presence as a global spirit detects that call and focuses attention on that person, ready to deliver comfort, hope, inspiration, and healing.

Besides calling on world avatars for help, there are several other options, perhaps closer to our third-density physical home in terms of frequency. Everyone has spirit guides and also angels who watch over them. Everyone also has their soul or higher self, which is based in fifth density, ready to dispense wisdom that is perfectly tailored to your unique situation. You don’t actually pray to your soul or higher self because you are part of its field of consciousness, but you can get in touch with your inner being first thing every day with a quiet meditation and thereby benefit from personalized guidance any time you need it.

Whether you feel most comfortable developing an inner connection to your soul or asking for help from a higher source, it is important to be aware of the power you already possess as a creation of the divine.

Imagination is your creative faculty. Be bold. Imagine a better life and never accept ideas that conspire to block your way.

Notice how your divine attributes of Curiosity, Creativity, and Constructive action include the word ‘action.’ This is the big reason why prayers can fail to work. If a person asks for their life to change, action will be required in some form by them and possibly other people. Action makes manifest, even if it is as subtle an act as a conscious shift in a belief that previously held you back. Guidance will come into your mind repeatedly, knocking at the door asking to be recognized and acted upon.

Lack of action after asking for help and guidance is the main reason prayer can fail to work, and it’s the same with the Law of Attraction, which is sometimes portrayed as a big magnet that energizes the universe toward your desired goal. Yes, it does do that but the Law of Attraction is like the magnet inside an electric generator waiting to be turned so that electricity can start to flow. If you don’t crank the handle and add motion to the situation, no energy flows and no results appear.

My recent e-book, Soul Inspiration: Unleash the Power of Your Higher Consciousness to Dissolve Problems and Create a Better Life, goes deeper into the subject, revealing ways to increase the clarity of the guidance you can receive and also determine which direction your action should take at any time to make your wishes come true.

Your True Inner Nature

by Owen Waters

Sooner or later everyone wakes up to the fact that they are essentially divine beings. Despite the appearance that we are physical in nature and that reality is filtered through the perceptions of our physical brains, there is much more to each human being than their physical aspect.

Your mind, which is a field of consciousness, is separate from your physical brain. Within that field of consciousness, you exist as an aspect of the divine source from which you came.

Long ago, you inserted yourself into the human experience. In those days, nothing was yet physical and being human meant being a specialized personality with the free will to explore consciousness in greater detail than previously.

Later, physical experience was sought as it made the experience of being a rational, freewill-driven, unique personality all the more interesting. At that point, being physical meant living in a lighter density than today’s version of physical existence.

The experience of being physical was so fascinating that, like youngsters excited about a new thrill ride at a funfair, we said, “How about if we try it with the lights out?” And, so, the lights went out.

Today, we are immersed deeper than ever in the human experience of being physical. This includes being apparently cut off from the normal information flow that comes with higher consciousness and we’re here to find the answer that lies somewhere out there in the gloom. Or, we might well ask, is it somewhere inside instead of somewhere out there?

Being mostly disconnected from the inner light means that we don’t have an inbuilt awareness of our oneness with the universe. We have to earn that realization through deliberate attunement. We don’t have always-on telepathic ability to exchange thoughts and feelings with other people. Conscious telepathy takes patience and practice. We aren’t attuned with conditions in nature like animals are. When an earthquake jolt is imminent or a tsunami is headed our way, wild animals suddenly head for the hills and we’re left wondering why our homebound pets are getting agitated.

As humans today, what we have is self-awareness, intellect, and freedom of choice. Within this mysterious maze of the thrill ride of being human with the inner lights turned off, there is a treasure to be found. That treasure is the realization that the light was there all the time, yet hidden from sight.

When you first find the spiritual light within, it begins to beckon you forward into the realms of more light. Then, you are firmly on the path of spiritual discovery. You are heading back along the pathway to the level of consciousness from which you came before the thrill ride began.

Remember, your brain is not your mind and your mind is not your real personality. Your immortal soul is your real personality and it is functioning through the filter of who you became in this particular lifetime.

Attune yourself with your soul consciousness every day and you will always be able make the right choices in life. When you sense the essence of your true personality, you will also sense which of the options that lie before you resonate best with your inner guidance. This attunement with the right options and their real potential is the secret to gaining the most from your experience of life as a human being.

The big question is, of all the techniques of spiritual awakening that could make such progress possible, which are the ones that are most effective and easiest to perform? And, how can they be combined for best effect when meeting daily challenges?

Those questions are answered in my new e-book, Soul Inspiration: Unleash the Power of Your Higher Consciousness to Dissolve Problems and Create a Better Life.

In Memoriam

by Owen Waters

The courageous Professor Peter Higgs died this week on April 8th, 2024. Starting in 1964, he quietly but relentlessly championed the return of a universal all-pervasive field to the world of physics.

His Higgs Mechanism explains the origin of the property of mass in subatomic particles. It requires the existence of an all-pervasive field and it also predicted the existence of a previously undetected particle, now called the Higgs boson.

When the existence of this new particle was proved at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, popular literature picked up on its fundamental importance and called it the God Particle!

This corrects the wrong turn taken by science over a century ago when an erroneous experiment failed to detect the aether and, instead of admitting failure, declared that the aether did not exist. This set back the progress of energy research for many decades.

In the 1800s, the science world accepted the existence of the “luminiferous aether”, an all-pervasive field which is the medium through which light is transmitted. At the time, the electrical pioneer Michael Faraday firmly believed in the “luminiferous aether” as an all-pervasive fabric of space. He went on to discover the principles that made possible the electric generator, motor, and transformer.

In the early 1900s, Nikola Tesla, ignoring the faulty experiment, firmly believed in the aether and, among many other advances, gave the world alternating current technology, making long-distance electrical transmission possible.

Today, the all-pervasive field is back, after being lost to physics for over a century. Next, progressive science minds will sense the tide change in physics and take the next steps by unraveling the damage caused by the theoretical concept of spacetime, which was invented as a substitute for the aether.

Spacetime was embedded into the counter-intuitive theory of relativity, which tries to tell us that we will never be able to travel faster than the speed of light. I doubt that is the belief of the ET visitors who travel back and forth hundred of light years to come and visit and see how close we are to being ready for open contact.

Relativity is one of those observer-bound ideas that thinks that the outside world is governed by the mind of the observer. In truth, the cosmos has its own rules and does not require humans to bring things into existence. For example, when you look at the Pleiades in the night sky, you’re not creating what you see. You’re seeing an image of how the stars looked 500 years ago because that is how long their light took to reach you. It’s the same thing with the question of whether a tree falling in a forest makes a sound if you’re not there to hear it. Yes, it does make a sound even if no one is there to hear it.

The following example shows why relativity is counter-intuitive. Two cars are traveling toward each other at a steady speed of 60 miles per hour each. They pass and continue their journeys in opposite directions at that speed. Then, one hour after the point where they passed each other they will be 120 miles apart, one car having traveled from the meeting point 60 miles in one direction and the other car having traveled 60 miles in the opposite direction. Their speed relative to each other added up to produce a cumulative 120 miles of separation in one hour. So far, so good. Common sense reigns.

With relativity theory, however, common sense flies out the window. It says that if two spaceships are traveling toward each other, both traveling at 0.8 times the speed of light, their relative speed cannot add up to 1.6 times the speed of light because nothing can exceed the speed of light. Make sense? No, of course not and, yet, this kind of relative spacetime nonsense has helped keep aether theory suppressed for over a century, severely hampering progress in energy research.

Today, thanks to the courageous persistence of Professor Peter Higgs, we have the aether back, albeit under a new name. But, will it be called the Higgs field in popular usage? I rather like the title of Lynne McTaggart’s book which simply called it The Field, with a capital “F”. Renaming the aether as “the Field” certainly helps avoid confusion over certain energy definitions. You see, “the aether” and “etheric energy” are two energies that sound the same but are actually as different as yin and yang.

So, let’s review those definitions as given in one of the chapters of my book, Spiritual Metaphysics: Answers to the Great Mysteries of Life.

The Field is a subtle, fluid, magnetic energy which fills all space. It is the fabric of space.

Etheric energy has been given many names, for example zero point energy, prana, chi or qi, orgone, the fifth element, tachyon energy, and vacuum energy. A more subtle cousin to electricity, etheric energy is the life force that streams towards us from the Sun, energizing and motivating all forms of life. In summary…

Etheric energy is universal life energy. Like all energies, it travels within the Field.

The Origin of Spiritual Metaphysics

by Owen Waters

Traditional metaphysics is the study of consciousness and the nature of reality. It goes way back, a long way… beyond even Aristotle. As a topic of study in universities, it has generated endless discussions on the nature of change, cause and effect, time, and how to define the properties of substances.

In the 20th Century, metaphysics reincarnated as the human potential movement, bringing a sense of hope for possibilities beyond people’s wildest dreams. At the higher end of the consciousness spectrum, the new metaphysics was inspiring and uplifting. At the lower end, it devolved into a mundane tool focused on material ambition. It was this chasm between higher and mundane metaphysics that led me to use a new term.

My own focus has always been on the spiritual aspects of metaphysics so, in August 2005, I decided to put the two words together and began using the term, spiritual metaphysics. This gave definition to a field of study that brought the light of understanding to spirituality and went beyond basic metaphysics.

An all-inclusive definition of Spiritual Metaphysics has to include the ultimate consciousness that is behind all of Creation. This one spiritual source is known by various terms, including the Absolute, Tao, or the All That Is. My own term is Infinite Being, which I began using as the name for our website in 2002, to encapsulate the idea of infinite, all-encompassing consciousness beyond which nothing else exists.

To keep the perspective focused on the nature of the universe, one has to consider the Law of Creation that underlies all manifestation. It is this triune method of creative consciousness that presents itself in many ways in the nature and structure of the universe, and in your life.

As a lifelong mystic, such mysteries were always dear to my heart. After 40 years of ceaseless struggle and searching for the keys to the universe, great insights began to dawn within my consciousness. For a short while, I even began to wonder if I’d been upgraded with some kind of intelligence transplant because, there I was, with deep insights into the nature of the universe popping inside my head like camera flashbulbs going off!

Then, reality dawned. It wasn’t actually me that was having the bright ideas. It took a while, but I slowly began to realize that the great inspirations were being fed to me by helpful ascended masters. It seems that they consider this to be the time for the release of greater metaphysical understanding. I was being impressed with these new ideas because I was on their list of people who were likely to talk about such realizations once they’d been received and understood. This comes from a desire to be of service and a willingness to step forward to assist in uplifting humanity during this time of awakening.

Over the years, I have been digesting and simplifying what I have learned from these inspired sources so that it can be easily understood by everyone. In essence, the subject of spiritual metaphysics is very simple. Beginning with the One consciousness, the Law of Creation employs three aspects of consciousness to interact with each other.

From there, the process is repeated so that you have three aspects of Divine consciousness plus nine variations of the original three in order to manifest the complexity required to support the manifestation of the material universe.

The result is a definition of everything critical to the framework of Creation. There are nine levels of existence in the universe. There are nine physical dimensions (three versions each of space, time, and energy), and there are nine universal laws of life. It is the laws that really inspire me right now because people can lead such wonderful lives when they understand the spiritually-based laws of reality.

Gaining this knowledge is like being handed the keys to the universe!

These keys can transform your own reality into an magical world of new and inspiring adventures.

The time has come for me to present the spiritual laws of life in a way that everyone can appreciate. It may have taken me a total of over 60 years to gain the insights that I have today, but you can grasp them in one easy step because, like all works of the Creator, they are the essence of elegant simplicity.

Once you see the spiritual laws of life laid out for your examination and understanding, you will have a complete knowing of how these universal principles are ingrained in the design of the universe in order to guide you along the path of your mission in life.

My magnum opus, Spiritual Metaphysics: Answers to the Great Mysteries of Life, is a collection that is the cumulative result of a lifetime of metaphysical discoveries… since 1963! It is a source of understanding and illumination filled with insights upon which you can reflect at leisure, each one bringing you closer to mastery of life upon earth.

She Walks in Beauty

by Dreama Vance

“She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;”

This well-loved poem by Lord Byron is about a beautiful woman, but for me, it has always represented Gaia. Do you see the Earth as she dances, spinning across the starlit sky? Do you see her as she turns from dark to bright?

The poem goes on to describe her attributes of goodness, serenity, peace and calmness, implying an elegant, regal nature. Is this not Gaia herself?

Many years ago while visiting Big Bend National Park in Texas, I somehow quite miraculously fell in love with the Earth. In this isolated area, within a 24-hour period, I fell absolutely in love with her. I cried like my heart was broken when I had to leave and return to my normal everyday life. During that brief time, in the way of mystery, she called me to walk the beauty path.

If you fall in love with her and whisper your heart’s desire to also walk the beauty path, she will begin to reveal her secrets to you.

Teachers will come to you to share her wisdom. If you partake of this wisdom, you will find your life entwined with her heart, just like two lovers in an embrace.

If you can be still enough… if you can quiet your mind and open your heart, she will sing to you.

Her song will play upon your inner being, revealing to you such wonders. Majesty and grandeur beyond imagination – LIFE ever living, renewing. She carries the heart of every living creature within her own beating heart.

If you are quiet, you will feel that heart beat. Like a baby in the womb, carried under the heart of the mother, we are nurtured, held in comfort and safety. We are connected as our heart vibrates in rhythm with hers, becoming one heart.

As you shelter in her arms, as you partake of foods from the Goddess, she will teach you the beauty path. You will become one with her rhythms, breathing with her breath and dancing with her divine nature. Her wisdom becomes your wisdom. Her cycles become your cycles. The depth of her spirit begins to deepen yours. Her peace soaks into your being.

Life becomes so much more than our daily existence.

“She walks in beauty,” and so will you.

How the Conscious Universe Works

by Owen Waters

“The universe only exists when you are observing it,” or so the popular theory goes.

This theory is an offspring of quantum physics. It says that, because the observer affects the outcome of experiments, the observer is key to reality. The theory goes on to suggest that the universe only exists when you look at it; therefore you must be creating the universe from your consciousness.

This is actually not a new idea. The old Zen riddle, “If a tree falls in a forest with no one to hear it, then does it make a sound?” reflects the same style of thinking. It suggests that nothing happens in the universe without an observer being present.

There is some validity to this theory in that, at the deepest level of consciousness, you are Infinite Being. At that deepest level, you are that which creates the entire universe, and that which maintains it in motion. However, at the everyday, human level of consciousness, the universe exists and runs quite happily without human intervention, whether or not anyone is watching it. The tree makes a noise when it falls, whether or not any human observers are present at the time.

Take, for example, the Pleiades, the star cluster which is also called the Seven Sisters. Often, on a clear night, you can see the Seven Sisters twinkling in the sky, even though they are five hundred light-years distant. Because of that distance, you are actually observing where the Seven Sisters were five hundred years ago. It took that long for the light image to reach your eyes. Basically, you are observing history in the night sky, not the actual, current position of the stars.

If you were creating the universe by virtue of being its observer, as the theory goes, then you would actually witness the Seven Sisters in their current position, and not in the position that they were five hundred years ago.

The idea that we live in a conscious universe has been gaining ground steadily for a number of years. The conscious universe is much more than a universe which is simply self-aware. The fabric of the universe is consciousness. The universe consists entirely of consciousness. The objects in the universe are all made of consciousness. Everything in the universe is fabricated from aspects of original consciousness, with those aspects interwoven and set into motion.

The chair upon which you may sit appears to be made of physical material. It has the appearance of a solid object that exists somewhere outside of yourself. However, physical matter is composed of subatomic energy particles, and energy, in turn, is composed of compressed consciousness. So, the chair is made up of 100% consciousness. It only appears to be a separate object outside of you because its elements are a projection of original Creator consciousness, fashioned by Nature and then by human consciousness.

Physical objects have their own specific locations in space. Space, however, is just a projected illusion, a concept manufactured by consciousness so that the All may be divided into an infinite variety of apparently separate parts.

Time is also a projection of consciousness. Time is a concept whereby the infinite parts of the All can engage in the appearance of movement. The underlying reality is still the eternal Now and yet time makes change, and therefore an infinite variety of experiences, possible. Each moment in time has its own signature vibration which separates it from all other moments in time, allowing the eternal Now to present a series of moments as a timeline along which change can occur.

An everyday analogy of projected reality is a movie projected onto a screen. A video may be a collection of photographic still-shots presented at a speed of 30 frames per second, just fast enough to appear as continual motion.

You know that the movie is just the projection of a recorded, dramatic scene, but it’s easy to forget that as you become involved in the unfolding drama. The movie appears like a real-life drama for as long as it absorbs your attention.

Time and space were fabricated within the consciousness of the universe in order to set the stage for life as we know it. Because the universe is made of 100% consciousness, all things are within it, and are therefore subjective. Nothing is really “out there,” even though life appears to be an objective experience. All physical reality is a projection within your consciousness, not something outside of, or separate from, yourself.

Each and every object in the universe – a table, a chair, a car, a house, anything – is not only composed of 100% consciousness, it actually IS conscious in its own way!

P.S. You can empower your own path through life with enlightening insights, such as the many contained within our collection of books.

The Ascension Frequency

by Owen Waters

I wrote my latest book The New Enlightenment in late 2023 for two reasons. One is that I finally realized why spiritual service to others is such a powerful path to enlightenment – potentially ten times more powerful than passive meditation. I had been aware of the concept since the 1970s, but an understanding had finally dawned upon me as to the science of why and how this is the case.

Two, I recognized that the long-awaited quantum leap in human consciousness had begun its phase of rapid growth. The founder of the science behind the Spiral Dynamics stages of human consciousness, Professor Clare Graves, had predicted this transition, calling it, “a momentous leap.” He defined it as a leap that takes us over the gap from the First Tier of Subsistence Levels to the Second Tier’s Being levels.

After his passing, his students simplified the subject considerably for public consumption using color codes for each of the stages of growth in human consciousness. In my book, The New Enlightenment, I simplified the approach a little further by simply numbering the stages as 1-6 for the First Tier and 7-12 for the higher, Second Tier.

Stage 7, in terms of its chakra equivalent, is the upper stage of heart-centered consciousness. Stage 7 is active, not passive like Stage 6, as it applies unconditional love to the practicalities of life’s challenges. All the earlier stages of human development are included as learned lessons in the higher stages, so Stage 7’s active heart-centered consciousness also includes earlier lessons learned in Stages 1-6, developing courage, creativity, and community.

Stage 7 is also the level of active spiritual consciousness documented by David R. Hawkins in his detailed scale of human consciousness. He found that, while much of the world’s population struggles to maintain a level of consciousness sufficient for the long-term survival of the human race, active spiritual consciousness compensates for, and counterbalances, 750,000 people who are below the key survival level. Well, who would have know how powerful a regular, unassuming lightworker could be?

According to Hawkins’ work, if you simply pursue your spiritual development practices, then, just by being on the planet and doing what you love to do, you’re quite a miracle worker!

Stage 7 heart-powered consciousness can also be called the Ascension Frequency because it powers the upcoming global ascension from third density to fourth-density physicality. In retrospect, it has been obvious, since The Shift began in the 1960s, that humanity is being prepared for an upgrade on a cosmic scale. Everything we can do to help the world spiritually hastens the day that humanity will be ready for the big event of The Shift, ready for the day that “the earth shall rise in the heavens.”

In today’s early days of Stage 7 consciousness, we are just beginning to sense how it will manifest, so I was very glad to see a recent video by spiritual consciousness expert, Penny Kelly. She called the video, ‘The Dragon of Love,’ as she sees a great awakening of love just waiting to emerge from under a dense underbrush of fears, worries, and stubborn thinking.

Penny documented the nature of true, unconditional love in plain, understandable language and, like Spiral Dynamics, honors the previous phases of human development like courage, curiosity, and creativity.

She defines unconditional love as an honest response from the inner, core self.

She sees unconditional love as something that shines through when you drop all illusions, fears, and anger as those are obstacles to your ability to rise to the challenge of big changes in life.

The Love that is the one Source, she continues, is the source of all life, the core that is within all things. There are many ways that this love can emerge in helping you face today’s challenges, and here are some of her insightful definitions:

Love expressed as Support
Listening to others and encouraging them to pursue their visions or dreams. It is also the willingness to see a need and fill it, to see a hurt and heal it, to know a truth and hold it, and to nurture a vision and pursue it.

Love expressed as Allowance
Letting go of the past. Taking care of the self gently and allowing others the space to do the same. It also means having the strength to set new habits without having to reform others.

Love expressed as Patience
Nurturing those around you, again without forcing them to conform to your expectations.

Love expressed as Integrity
Having the determination to set things right by aligning them with ethics and morals that protect life in all its forms. We each have a moral compass called our inner being or sometimes just “the still, small voice within.”

Love expressed as Honesty
The willingness to be realistic, and to be honest about what we see, hear, think, and feel.

Love expressed as Grace
Having the grace to let yourself flow naturally through each day, to wish another well, and to wish yourself well.

Love expressed as Courage
Love is the courage to align yourself with inner truth and yet respect the choices and alignments of others. It can bring the excitement of the unknown when facing change and adopting a sense of being in charge rather than a sense of being a victim. If you are ever attacked, love is the willingness to stand in your integrity and, while being fully willing to defend yourself, refusing to over-engage more than is needed to make the attack stop.

Love expressed as Curiosity
The willingness to see possibilities and to go beyond limitation simply because of curiosity.

Love expressed as Creativity
Finding ways to improve things using the resources at hand in new or better ways.

Love expressed as Growth
Love brings the confidence to accept everything the world offers and use it to improve yourself. It is also the willingness to regularly be in the stillness with the wisdom of your inner Self to review your feelings about recent events in your life.

Finally, in The Dragon of Love, Penny reminds us that a return to love will set that dragon free, allowing us to become new humans and build a new world.

The New Enlightenment Has Dawned

by Owen Waters

I am reminded that, back in the days of the Harmonic Convergence in 1987, cosmologist Christine Page along with Gregg Braden and Ervin Laszlo announced that a Great Period of Change would start in 1987 and end in 2023.

During the Harmonic Convergence event from August 16-17, 1987, thousands of spiritual people gathered at sacred sites around the planet to meditate for peace on Earth. After it was over, nothing seemed to change and, so, many were disappointed.

Apparently, global changes take a little time to manifest because, just two years later, demolition of the Berlin Wall began and the promise of peace replaced the Cold War and its constant threat of nuclear annihilation.

Today, we have two timelines in play. In the months and years ahead, those timelines will diverge and people will follow the one of their choice, eventually losing the opportunity to switch from one to the other.

Those who choose the kinder, gentler timeline are now awakening to the fact that the era of the New Enlightenment has dawned. It began right on schedule in mid-2023, exactly as predicted. This is a long-awaited quantum leap in human consciousness which was foretold by a ground-breaking psychology professor in the 1970s. The new frequency of consciousness now in effect sets the human mind free to be creative, kind and constructive in ways that will transform the world into a remarkably better place.

My new book, “The New Enlightenment: Transformation into an Age of Abundance” reveals the metaphysical drivers behind today’s revolution in human consciousness. With this understanding, you can engage in the New Enlightenment to bring complete abundance into all aspects of your life, whether you seek financial abundance, better friendships, good health, enlightening spiritual growth, or all of the above.

The dawn of the New Enlightenment means that we now have the readiness to face any challenge in life with inspired resourcefulness. Spiritual seekers find the new mindset especially helpful as actively engaging in it can be ten times more effective in gaining enlightenment than passive meditation practices!

I encourage you to read this book again and again as it opens the door to a beautiful life filled with purpose, abundance, and true inner joy.

Proof of the Existence of the Creator

by Owen Waters

Science generally promotes the idea of a Big Bang, from which the universe is said to have literally exploded into life. The problem science faces with this theory is the difficulty that such an event would face in being successful in creating life.

In his book, The Life of the Cosmos, physicist Lee Smolin details the many variables which had to be exactly balanced in order for the universe to unfold into living order, rather than random chaos.

The mass of the proton, the strength of gravity, the range of the weak nuclear force, and dozens of other variables determine how a universe will unfold after a Big Bang. If any of these values had been just slightly different, the universe would have become a disorganized pool of hot plasma where galaxies and solar systems were unable to form.

In order to make a universe that supports life, the numbers have to be exactly right.

What are the mathematical chances of an accidental Big Bang producing a universe that produces life as we know it?

One chance in 10229

That’s one chance in 10 to the power 229.

To spell it out, that’s exactly one chance in…

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

Basically, not much chance at all!

What are the chances of an intelligent Creator getting the mix just right so that the universe can support life?

Well, we’re here aren’t we?

Now, Here’s What Really Happened at the Dawn of Creation

So much for the physics and its favorite tool, mathematics. But, to realize what really happened at the dawn of the Creation of the Universe, you need metaphysics to illuminate the path.

The real starting point of the universe was the Divine Love of the Creator.

This was necessary in order to contain what came next, the impetus for Expansion.

Today, the Expansion pressure slightly exceeds the magnetic containment power of the framework provided by Divine Love.

At our physical level of existence, this results in the steady expansion of our region of the universe at the speed of light, creating a constant flow of energy within that space at the speed of light.

The Nature of Energy

Physics defines energy as the potential for doing work but they don’t know what it is.

Spiritual metaphysics defines energy as compressed Divine consciousness.

How Time is Changing

by Owen Waters

Part of The Shift to the New Reality involves a change in our experience of the passage of time. People often comment on how time seems to be passing much faster today than it did just 10 or 20 years ago. It’s not because we’re getting older; it’s because our experience of time is changing.

This is occurring because the frequency of human consciousness is rising, so the experience of the passage of time has accelerated. The speed of the orbit of the planets is still the same, the speed of light is still the same, and everything in the outside world is still the same, but our experience has changed.

Experiential time is the experience of time, as in “time flies” or “time drags.” It is subjective, as opposed to the objective time of the outside world.

Our internal experience of the passage of time can vary considerably. When a person is not happy in their work, for example, the time clock on the wall seems to take forever to turn and the end of the working day seems to take an eternity to arrive. On the other hand, when a person is joyful and excited about what they are doing, their consciousness is vibrating at a higher frequency and, for them, the experience of time flies at a fast rate.

As they say, “Time flies when you’re having fun.”

Energetically, the difference is that joy is expressed through higher, heart-centered consciousness while boredom takes one deep into the lower frequency of the solar plexus center of consciousness.

When you are bored, your perception of time runs slowly because your consciousness vibrates at a slower frequency. When you are filled with joy and engaged in favorite activities with people you love, your consciousness vibrates at a higher frequency and your perception of time runs more quickly.

The principle at work here is that the perception of experiential time varies with frequency of consciousness. Experiential time runs faster at higher frequencies.

Why the Difference Matters

The shift from Old Reality consciousness to New Reality, heart-centered consciousness includes a shift in our perception of time. Heart-centered consciousness brings with it an increasing degree of freedom from objective time. It makes life’s experiences more important to your consciousness than the passage of time. Life becomes a chain of experiences which seem to expand and contract the time that they take to occur. The objective time continuum is the same, but the perception of the experience is different.

The key to understanding this is that, because life in the objective world is a projection of the greater reality that exists within you, then a shift to higher consciousness brings you closer to the reality within. At that point, objective time loses some of its importance and the inner experience of time takes on more importance.

How Timing Will Change in the Future

As people’s frequency of awareness rises up through fourth-density consciousness, they will become more attuned to the synchronicity that is offered by an experiential approach to time. The more people become mentally attuned to others, the more they manifest synchronicity in their lives.

Eventually, when experiential time is given more attention than objective time, people will arrange to meet each other, not by making appointments in their calendars, but by both knowing when the time is right for such a meeting.

At work, the attuned person will know from their soul-fed intuition which task is most important for them to address right at that moment and this will lead to even more synchronicity with the minds of other, intuitively-driven people.

The Reason Intuition Works

The intuitive mind senses the reality of all situations in ways that the objective mind of the physical senses cannot. When a situation develops into fruition, in which it can best be addressed for most effect, the intuitive mind has that perfect sense of timing and can help all those involved in handling the situation.

In fourth-density, heart-centered consciousness, because more attention is placed upon the inner reality than the outer world of clockwork motion, life becomes more fluid and less rigid, based upon an intuitive sense of what action is right at any moment in time. Timing becomes everything, but in a way that the objective, physical mind cannot possibly comprehend.

Intuition feeds synchronicity, so the experience of time, with its expansions and contractions, takes on more importance than the fixed pace of the outer world’s objective time.

Higher consciousness adds more abilities to the ones we have already developed. Intuitive perception leading to perfect synchronicity is a perfect example of the growth that awaits us as we step into the New Reality.

There Was No Big Bang

by Owen Waters, 13 Jan 2024

Materialistic science speculates on how the universe was created. Currently, the Big Bang theory is the most popular way to imagine how a universe full of life could have emerged from nothing.

New scientific discoveries come a lot easier when you include consciousness in the picture, especially the all-pervasive consciousness of the Creator of the universe. My favorite question in times of reflection on such matters is, “How did the Creator manage to do that?”

Many years ago, I reduced what may be called the Law of Creation to its simplest fundamentals. It states that Creation occurs when Divine thought and Divine feeling are set into complementary motion.

Some people might choose more poetic terms, such as intention instead of thought and love instead of feeling, but the simplest terms are more all-encompassing. For example, the dense physical versions of Divine thought and feeling are electricity and magnetism. Like their parent energies, they are quite different in nature to each other. They even operate along different axes – perpendicular at ninety degrees, not parallel to each other. If you set the energies of electricity and magnetism into motion at the right frequency, you produce visible light.

When curiosity originally stirred Infinite Being from its eternal state of placid perfection into a motion-filled exploration of possibilities, the Law of Creation was the necessary method employed for this adventure. Separating Divine consciousness into two different elements, thought and feeling or yang and yin, then setting them into motion, made possible an infinite variety of experiences.

Before the Beginning

Long before the universe came into existence, the Creator aspect of Infinite Being began its explorations by simply wanting to see and experience itself from different viewpoints. First, it split itself into two parts. This allowed Part A to sense and observe Part B from a different perspective. Then, the concept of space was born so that more parts could be created within the envelope of space and they could all view the other parts from their locations.

Density Layers of Existence

From our current-day perspective, we live in a universe containing nine major density layers, or realms of existence, each one more compressed than the one above it. The least dense (and most expansive) layer is ninth density (9D), which is home to galaxy-size fields of consciousness.

The Invention of Time

Once the idea of galaxies took shape, the concept of time had to be added into the mix. Galaxies could then travel within the envelope of space in cycles of time. Even though everything in Creation is fundamentally part of the Great Here and Now, the inventions of space and time make infinite variety possible.

Ultimately, each instant of time is just another expression of the one great Now, but it is made to appear different by giving each instant its own frequency signature, making each moment appear different from the previous one.

Bear in mind that frequency signatures are more than just different frequencies. They have different thought and feeling components as well as motion, so they have an almost infinite variety of possible signatures to differentiate themselves from others.

Creation by Compression

As detailed in my book, Spiritual Metaphysics: Answers to the Great Mysteries of Life, the higher cosmic densities are home to the core consciousness of galaxies (9D), solar systems (8D), and planets (7D). Then, the next three densities were created by compressing Divine consciousness even further.

Sixth density (6D) is home to angels and archangels. In their full aspects, archangels are global spirits whose enormous fields of awareness surround the world. The creation of sixth density opened the door to further compression, creating realms which would support the human experience. Fifth density (5D) is home to human soul consciousness and is a nonphysical realm of spiritual light and sound energies. Traditionally, 5D is referred to as the higher mental realms. Fourth density (4D) is home to spirits in the afterlife and also supports physical humans.

The universe, from our perspective, is the third density (3D) basic physical realm we currently call home. It was created, like all realms above it, by the further compression of the Divine mind. There was no sudden Big Bang event in 3D, creating the universe as we know it. The motion of the stars was created by Divine intention in higher densities long before the physical density realm existed.

Our physical world was created in a nonphysical density and then, in sacred silence, compressed into being.

No Big Bang necessary.

Can There Be Anything New in the Universe?

by Owen Waters

The consciousness behind all of Creation has been given many names, including Infinite Being, God, Brahman, Tao, Spirit, and the Absolute. The term Infinite Being is reflective of the all-inclusive, all-knowing, all-present nature of that Divine consciousness.

Some say that there can be nothing new within the all-inclusive beingness behind the Creation of the universe. All possibilities must already exist within Infinite Being, otherwise it would be incomplete and therefore not infinite and all-encompassing.

But, is that the end of the story? What about human creativity? For example, did the invention of the wheel simply express something that already existed? If so, where were the preexisting wheels hiding? Now, that is a mystery! Perhaps it was just the idea of the wheel that preexisted. But, even an idea would have needed to have started at some point as something new.

After billions of years of creating, carefully developing, and maintaining the universe, the Creator added human beings into the mix. After all that time of preparation, it seems that the universe was ready for humans with their empowering attributes of intelligence, memory, and free will.

As humans, we are created to search for novel solutions to any problems we encounter. We face challenges with curiosity and intelligence, leading to new discoveries and increases in our library of knowledge.

As humans, we volunteered to incarnate into a world that is so dense that we feel isolated from the higher aspects of our own consciousness. Our souls, based in a finer density of existence, do their best to offer higher guidance in the hope that we will make strides forward in the types of experiences we expect to gain in our lives.

If humans are intended to create novelty, i.e. new ideas, new solutions, and new objects, then it must be for good reason. Actually, it comes down to the same answer to the longest-standing metaphysical mystery on earth. In my book, Discover Your Purpose In Life, I told the story of how, in 2007, an archangelic being surprised me with a visit and, knowing that I would distribute such information, revealed the answer to that mystery.

The big question of all time was why, when Infinite Being is perfection in every way, did it want to move from just being into an active state of doing? To put it bluntly, why would it move into a state of imperfection so that it, through human consciousness, could find its way back to the perfection it already had? It was a total mystery, a conundrum of Creation.

Why would Infinite Being venture forth from pure beingness into action and embark upon a journey in search of perfection that it already has?

Nevertheless, here we are, sparks of the divine acting out the edict that we function as uniquely different beings so that Infinite Being can add our diversity into its unity. This means that the great Oneness is becoming, not the great Sameness with everyone all being identical to everyone else, but the great Variety, a gathering of infinite differences in joyful unity with our hearts vibrating as one.

So, can there be anything new in the universe? Yes, we create newness each and every day. It is our mission to use our God-given curiosity as we observe, learn, love, and create new solutions to every possible manifestation of the mysterious ways of life.

P.S. You can empower your own path through life with enlightening insights, such as the many contained within our collection of books.

The Nature of the Soul

by Owen Waters

Your soul is your immortal inner being. It existed before time began and it will always exist, even when you merge back in your ultimate spiritual home as a conscious aspect of Infinite Being – the Divine Source of all life.

Out of the 12 levels or density layers of existence, we, in this physical realm, are in 3rd density. The soul is in 5th density, and Infinite Being is beyond the 12th. Your soul is your individualized spiritual presence, operating in 5th density and it maintains communication with the souls of everyone with whom you interact in daily life.

The soul world of 5th density is non-physical, our dense physical world is in 3rd density, while 4th density – the afterlife or spirit world – is quasi-physical. The term quasi-physical means that the spirit world is solid to its residents, even though they are etheric or ghost-like when compared to our dense physical structures. Spirits can, and do, bump into each other in the spirit realms because they are solid relative to each other.

Life in the spirit world is much like life in our dense physical world, except that there are certain freedoms that come with having a less dense body. The ability to levitate is one such freedom and, better still, spirits can project themselves almost instantly to another location and suddenly appear there. It just takes mental focus and – whoosh – they appear at the target location.

You don’t see people wearing spectacles in the spirit world because their sense of sight works as a direct perception rather than through their eyes in the way that we use our eyes. They can focus telescopically on distant objects to make them appear near, and they can focus microscopically on a nearby object, right down to its atomic structure. Their sense of hearing, too, can be focused to pick up sounds at great distances.

When we in the physical world are able to replicate the principles behind ‘astral projection’, we, too, will have instant transportation to other locations. Then, it’ll be bye-bye to cars, trucks, trains, planes and rocket ships.

5th density is the start of non-physical existence, so your soul is a non-physical sphere of consciousness. It has the freedom to relocate both in time and space but it spends most of its time catering to the needs of its physical, incarnate self.

In 5th density, when one soul meets another they recognize each other, not from any physical appearance, but from their unique signature vibration. Each soul emits a unique signature tone which is a form of mental energy that is perceived as a subtle sound.

Your soul is the recorder and cataloger of all of your experiences as you add your contribution to the vast array of human experience on earth. A major portion of your soul consciousness lives right here in 3rd density with you, tending to your every spiritual need. As your inner self, your soul knows you better than anyone else in the world does, and it’s available for consultation 24/7. The limiting factor is how much your physical mind will allow and accept intuitive, soul-originated thoughts.

In order to live a life inspired by intuitive, inner wisdom you need only make a decision to do just that. Open up your awareness to the whisperings of your intuitive nature. Practice following your innermost hunches. Make a note of them so that you can look back later and see how accurate they have become.

Don’t be deterred if your hunches seem inaccurate during your early attempts. It happens that way to most people. Just keep practicing and very soon your hunches will start turning into a resource so valuable that you’ll wonder what you did without it.

Love and Light to the World

by Owen Waters

We live in times of crisis, chaos, and opportunity for growth.

Looked at from your soul’s perspective, you could say that we live in deeply interesting times because of the great challenges we face. In fact, the rate of change of many things in the world today has sped up to an almost bewildering degree.

Amid the push and tug of contemporary conflicts and beneath all surface appearances, our future is being formed in a way that is building into a transformative tidal wave of change. It is being formed in a place in which we all share, yet most people are unaware even of its existence. That place is called the mind belt.

The mind belt is the mental atmosphere of human thought and feeling that surrounds the planet. Our subconscious minds are immersed in it; our superconscious minds are fully aware of it, yet our conscious minds rarely even glimpse its existence. Even so, our minds share in its atmosphere and we feed it with our own thoughts and feelings just like everyone else.

Let’s stop and think for a moment. Is it better to feed the global mind atmosphere with thoughts of anger, division, fear and desperation, or is it better to offer something more inspirational as our donation to the world’s mind belt?

The question hardly needs answering. As lightworkers we know how to raise our consciousness. While others spend their energy in anger and hate or in scheming to gain more power at the expense of others, we know that the future lies in the next step up the ladder of awareness, which is heart-centered consciousness.

The question is, how do you avoid being pulled down into the mire of human conflict when you want to create a state of harmony for yourself and others?

I’m so glad you asked… 🙂

Here is a technique you can use to create an enlightened space of consciousness for yourself and heal the world at the same time. It is called the Love and Light Technique.

The Love and Light Technique

Several times a day – whenever the thought arises – take a pause to refresh your state of consciousness. Any time you get the chance to enter a quiet space within for a few moments without distraction, you can begin by focusing on your breath.

Imagine, with each in-breath, the air you breathe in is filled with brilliant, energy-charged light. Breathe this light energy into the heart area in the center of your chest.

Then, on each out-breath, mentally focus on the words,

“Love and light to the world.”

Breathe in light, then let it out into the world, conditioned with the intention of love and light. Repeat at least twice more… and many more times when you can.

Do your part to fill the world with love and light. It changes your own state of consciousness and it helps heal the world in these desperate times of crisis.

With crisis comes opportunity. The opportunity to become who you really are, to manifest your soul’s true mission in life.

This is what we as lightworkers are here to do. To change the world. The Love and Light Technique empowers your ability to help humanity, to usher in the New Reality of love, light, and creative freedom of the spirit.

There is a Place

by Dreama Vance

There is a place within me. I call it the dwelling place. It is a place where I can sit down and just be. It is a place where I can rest. I can let go of all the cares and worries of the world. I can be quiet and shut out the noise of the day. So sometimes I call it the resting place.

It is a place. It is a place within me where I can go and be still.

Just for five minutes I can rest and be still.

I don’t have to pray. I don’t have to ask for anything. I don’t have to save the world and I don’t have to be spiritual. I don’t have to use the right words or the right techniques to find God, understand God or have God do anything for me.

I can just rest and be still.

Oh, it is a blessed place to just be quiet and not have to do anything.

As I rest in this place within my being, it feels like the lap of water against the side of a moored sailboat. That gentle rocking motion, so soothing. It flows over me, rocking me, soothing and calming. Like a babe rocked in mother’s arms, held close to the heart, the fretfulness falls away. Peace is restored. I can breathe again, I notice, as I release a deep sigh.

The dwelling place. It renews me. It restores me. I want to live in this place all the time. That is why I call it the dwelling place. I want to reside here, dwell here. I know such peace in this place. I feel beautiful here; beauty surrounds me.

I feel nurtured here in this place. All of the broken pieces of me are knit up. I’m not broken any more. I am made whole again.

I notice the Sun is shining gently, smiling on my spirit. Everything is gentle in this place. It is a place of ease and flow. Ease and flow. I call this grace. This grace flows through me and I am part of it.

It is my dwelling place.

It is my dwelling place.

The God Field

by Owen Waters

Cleanliness may be next to godliness, but curiosity gets you even closer. We were endowed with our Creator’s sense of curiosity and that is what bestows upon us the desire to understand the nature of reality.

In this article, you will see that a top-down, Creator-based philosophy can provide answers to the mysteries that elude materialistic science today. The key question one needs to ask to unravel the mysteries of the universe is to first say, “How did the Creator do that?”

By looking at Creation from the top down, this article will even provide the answer to two of the most vexing mysteries in the science of physics today: How is light transmitted and what is the nature of gravity?

Creation was achieved by separating Original Consciousness into two distinct aspects – Pure Thought and Pure Love, then setting them into complementary motion. It is the Pure Love aspect that is compressed into this physical realm as the field which forms the very fabric of space.

Until a century ago, the idea of an all-pervasive field was generally accepted by science. It was considered to be a light-carrying medium and was called the aether, right up until the time that it was abandoned because of a misunderstood experiment.

Consider this: Common sense says that light must be carried by some kind of medium. After all, sound waves are carried through the air and water waves are carried through bodies of water. There is always a medium that carries any type of energy wave. Light waves are vibrations in a medium of some kind, so what is waving? Currently, science is unable to answer that question in any way that satisfies common sense.

The Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887 was the turning point in scientific opinion about the aether. This experiment assumed that, if the Earth moves through a solar system filled with a static aether field, then the speed of the Earth’s orbital travel must affect the speed of light on Earth. If you shine a beam in the direction of orbital travel, it should have a different speed when compared with a beam shone sideways to the direction of travel, as one beam gains some benefit from the speed of the Earth while the other does not. As no difference was detected, it was assumed that no aether field exists.

The fatal flaw in the experiment is that it makes the assumption that the Earth moves through a static aether field in space, but what if a huge physical body like the Earth carries its own aether field with it? It’s not hard to imagine an aetheric aura around the body of Earth just like the aura that exists around your body. If you operate this experiment inside an aetheric field that travels with the Earth, then any motion through the aether will not be apparent because its field is traveling with you.

Today, having abandoned the aether concept, science postulates that space is filled with a vacuum. By definition, a vacuum is nothing, so it cannot be a medium for the propagation of something, so that idea does nothing to fill the gaping hole which has appeared in the science of physics.

The currently-fashionable theory of relativity claims that its mysterious equations do not require a medium for the propagation of light. Instead, it introduces the idea of spacetime as a fabric of space, whatever spacetime is supposed to be. From a common sense perspective, it makes about as much sense as saying, “I’ll be sure to pack a box of time to have with my lunch!”

Meanwhile, God’s big hint about the exact nature of the aether field has been jutting out in plain view for well over a century. In 1862, Maxwell discovered that light is electromagnetic in nature. We have since found that electrons and photons of light are remarkably interchangeable. So, if light waves are electric-like waves traveling through space, then from where does the magnetic part of an electromagnetic wave come? Obviously, it is the magnetic nature of the aether – the fabric of space – that provides the complementary magnetic waves that make up electromagnetic light waves.

A word of caution here: The word aether, or its modern spelling ether, causes a lot of confusion because it sounds very much like the term etheric energy, which is a different energy entirely. Etheric or vital life energy is the life-giving energy used in healing work and qigong.

What can we do to distinguish between the ether as the fabric of space and etheric energy as the vital life energy used by healers? Bring God into the picture!

The best name for the all-pervasive field of Divine love energy that fills our universe is, of course, the God field!

Here is my definition of the physical expression of the God field, formerly known as the aether:

The God field is the fabric of space. It is a subtle, fluid, magnetic energy which fills all space. It is intensified within and around matter, where its attractive nature produces the force of gravity.

This, and other mysteries of life are further explained in the missing manual for life in this world, Spiritual Metaphysics by Owen Waters.

Love is the New Lens

by Owen Waters and Dreama Vance

People imagine that they think from the brain, but that is only partly true. The brain processes physical information and provides you with the concepts of time and space so that you can function in the fabricated reality that appears to exist in a world outside of you.

Your mind, however, is a nonphysical field of consciousness and it is not fixed inside your head. Each of the seven major chakras, or energy centers associated with the human body, resonate to a specific frequency band of consciousness. For most people in today’s world, daily thought is focused around the solar plexus chakra. In other words, your thoughts come from and through such a frequency filter.

You receive mental energy from the global mind atmosphere or mind belt. Your thoughts and emotions condition this mind energy and you automatically re-transmit it back out into the mind belt. This can happen at the frequency of the solar plexus chakra or, in the case of higher thinking, at the frequency of the heart chakra.

At the lower end of solar plexus-level thinking, issues of hierarchical control are experienced while, at the higher end, intellectual achievement is the focus. A century ago, when the world shifted from the authoritarian lens of the lower end of the solar plexus chakra toward the intellectual achievement of the higher end, a distinct sense of self-empowerment unfolded. While people used to accept the idea of obedience and unquestioning faith in spiritual matters, today they have grown to realize that they can think for themselves and that they can determine and create their own reality.

The evolution of your consciousness produces an expansion in the size of your mind. The terms, “expanded consciousness” or “personal growth” literally refer to an expansion in the size of your mental field.

With the ongoing shift to New Reality thinking, the lens through which people see the world is moving from the solar plexus to the heart chakra. Heart-centered consciousness begins with an expansion of awareness that includes the needs of others and then progresses into the first stage of spiritual awakening.

People live within a chakra-related bubble of consciousness. Imagine it being rather like a deep sea diver’s helmet or a spacesuit helmet. That bubble is moving up from the solar plexus level and the world is seen as a very different place when viewed from the new heart-centered perspective.

Looking through the lens of the heart, everything has a different perspective. Instead of providing an understanding of the emerging New Reality from a simply intellectual viewpoint, this lens engages your higher feelings and the New Reality becomes a personal experience, not just a mental concept.

In order to master the changes that are thrown at us in today’s busy world, the new lens of reality has to be experienced each and every day. You need a technique which can spiritualize your consciousness either in a period of quiet reflection or, more quickly, when pressed by circumstances.

You need to be able to reconnect easily with the Divine Presence within so that an elegant solution to every challenge can be created. To achieve this, we recommend the clear and concise book, Soul Inspiration.

Attention: Incoming Major Timeline Split

by Owen Waters, 29th October 2023

According to top psychics and remote viewers, we are just weeks away from a major timeline split. They sense looming world-changing events and are scrambling to find out more about the what, where and when of these events. Whatever it is they sense, the result is likely to be that some of the world’s population will choose a future of fear and hate while others choose a positive path, despite the distractions being placed before them.

Just recently, after the shocking news of the breakout of war in the Middle East, someone asked the Dalai Lama how he can still be so happy.

He replied, “How can I choose not to be happy?” and went on to explain that the world needs people to raise the global consciousness, not lower it by falling into depression and fear.

Some people see wars as events deliberately created to distract people from the coming ascension to a higher plane of existence. I see their point and I am reminded, as pointed out in my book, The Lightworker Mission, that the mission of a lightworker is simply to work the light! That means regular spiritual practices, preferably of the powerful variety.

Major timeline splits happen when part of the world’s population makes one choice while the others make an opposite choice. These divergence doorways don’t just open and then immediately snap shut: There will be months and years for people to catch up, to realize that a new reality is emerging and that they can choose love and peace over fear and hate.

I am reminded of a chapter in my Lightworker book:

Peace in Times of Change

In days gone by, spiritual seekers would hole up in a cave or other quiet place of retreat and isolate themselves from the hubbub of the world in order to seek inner truth. Today, the priority has changed.

We live in a time of rapid transformation. Because the underlying cause of rapid change today is the constant rise in the base frequency of matter, people feel adrift in a sea of change over which they have no control. The need for spiritual help and guidance in these days is paramount.

That means that the hubbub of social interaction is now in vogue and caves are so yesterday. People need lightworkers more than ever because we’re the ones who lead in understanding the nature of today’s great change. We’re the ones who energetically look up and see where we are going rather than looking around in the world and feeling overwhelmed and confused.

The nice thing about being on the leading edge of today’s tidal wave of change is that you actually do enjoy peace in those times of reflection. You may not have the time to be in retreat mode for very long each day but, when you do, you connect with that which is truly uplifting and inspiring.

In fact, with each passing year and each incremental rise in the background frequency of matter, that sense of inspiration and upliftment just keeps getting better and better.

With time, developing your inner life leads to a wonderful bonus. It leads to a sense of trust and confidence in the benevolent nature of the universe. With the unfolding of this ability to trust, you become able to “see through” the external events of the world and maintain a sense of peace and harmony based upon unchanging reality rather than the fickle changes of the outside world.

The World Healing Technique

by Owen Waters

Try the World Healing Technique now and see what a difference it makes to your spiritual life, both immediately and as an uplifting reaction in the following days.

There’s nothing quite as uplifting as starting your day by sending healing energy to the world. It brightens your day and makes it feel good to be alive.

This is how: Sit upright, preferably with your hands resting in your lap, palms facing upwards. Breathe rhythmically and evenly. Close your eyes and turn away from your everyday thoughts by letting your attention focus on your breath. Whenever you notice your thoughts wandering, peacefully turn away from those thoughts, which can always be dealt with later, and return to focusing on your breath.

Recognize your spiritual nature. Know that you are a spiritual being living in a physical world and ask God or the Universal Spirit for the life energy that you are about to use. Give gratitude to the Creator for universal life energy, for everything that you love about your life, and for existence itself. This connection to higher consciousness will amplify your efforts many times.

Take several breaths. With each in-breath, visualize life energy coming into your body, building into a vibrant white light within you and charging every cell of your being with its life-giving energy.

First, visualize the positive change that you want to bring into being in the world. Even though you are healing something that you perceive as negative, it is important to focus, instead, on the desired positive outcome. If you send energy to something negative, you will amplify its power. By sending energy conditioned for a positive outcome, you make that form of healing possible.

For example, in your mind’s eye, instead of a world suffering from strife, visualize the people of the world at peace. When you think of world peace, what is the first symbol that springs to mind – a crowd of happy children, a white dove of peace taking flight? Use that symbol, or, if pictures don’t easily come to mind, simply use the words, world peace, as the focus for your intention.

In the case of a specific war, send inspiration, upliftment, and spiritual power to the peace negotiators. They are the key to ending any ongoing conflict in a way that saves people from untold suffering.

In the case of a flu pandemic, see the world filled with people who are vibrant in their good health, smiling and moving around, breathing freely in the open air.

Or, instead of seeing spiritual ignorance and the suffering that it prolongs, visualize people who are becoming enlightened by spiritual understanding. Use the first picture that comes to mind or the words, world enlightenment.

Or, as yet another example, instead of seeing people displaced and distraught from a recent catastrophe, you could see aid workers being successful in their efforts to bring relief and medical assistance to those people, or use the words, energy to the aid workers.

Now, we’re ready to use the inbreath-outbreath cycle to transmit healing energy for the specified purpose. With every inbreath, see your lungs being filled with the vibrant white light of universal life energy.

With every outbreath, send the power of this love and light out to humanity. Direct it as a beam of brilliant white light from your heart chakra out into the world, holding the intention of healing. You can enhance the effect even more by sending energy out from the palms of your hands as well as from your heart.

Perform this as a series of inbreaths and outbreaths for as long as you wish, then relax and spend some time in the afterglow of a spiritual mission well accomplished.

These are the days of action, and that means service to others. Even better, your service to others also helps you in your own spiritual enlightenment. Action and reaction are opposite and equal.

Every time you send your light out into the world, you take another step forward towards your own enlightenment.

The World Healing Technique in Summary

Sit upright with your eyes closed.
Make a spiritual connection, one which includes gratitude for life.
Intend world healing by visualizing the desired positive outcome.
Breathe in life energy with each inbreath.
On each outbreath, repeat your intention and send a beam of white light from your heart to your intended destination.
Keep going for 20 minutes or as long as you can. You’ll do the world a power of good!

Why UFOs are in the News

by Owen Waters

George Adamski UFO photo, California 1952

Secrets are being revealed, and there’s no turning back. We’ve lived through decades of being deprived of knowing what others knew about extraterrestrials and their spacecraft. Enough is enough.

UFO sightings have always existed. In the Bible they were described as fiery “wheels within wheels” that rose in the heavens. UFO activity exploded in the mid 1940s along with another kind of explosion – atomic ones that impacted the physical realm of planet Earth and even the subtle realms of the whole solar system. Suddenly, Earth attracted a lot of attention from concerned otherworldly sources.

In the summer of 1947, a private pilot flying over Oregon saw ten Unidentified Flying Objects a few miles away. He reported that they moved “like a saucer if you skip it across the water” so journalists immediately coined and popularized the term, “flying saucers.”

Just days later, a UFO crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. The local paper announced the news of a recovered “flying disc” but the story was immediately hushed up for national security reasons. Many years later, in 1997, retired US Army Colonel Philip Corso published the story of how he had been one of the personnel assigned to unraveling the technology found on the crashed UFO. With the Soviet Union as a nuclear-powered enemy and Cold War secrecy at an all-time high, he had to find a reasonable excuse for how the technology artifacts had come into his possession. So, he told corporate research departments like Bell Labs that his mysterious technology artifacts were smuggled in from “foreign enemies” and asked them what they could discover from these samples.

As a result of the efforts of Corso and others, transistors and integrated circuits were “discovered” by the process of examining “foreign” technology. The computers and smartphones that we use today grew out of these developments. Other breakthroughs included night vision, lasers, and the fiber optic cables that are the backbone of today’s Internet.

Corso was tasked with seeing what new technology could be used specifically for defense purposes, then allowing the rest to be used to create products for sale to the public as an incentive for the corporations doing the research. Because of the Cold War secrecy, the public never knew how much of the really cool UFO technology – like, how to build a flying saucer – was successfully replicated. The Cold War ended in 1991, but its secrecy lived on in the form of new weapons ready for any new challenge that might arise to threaten the survival of the U.S. and other cooperating nations.

The propaganda war against UFO contactees that began in 1947 continued unabated, programming the public to equate the term “UFO” with a sense of ridicule. Today, with the new awakening, secrets of all kinds are emerging into the public consciousness. Now, we know enough to speculate on some of the technology that might emerge. Forced to discuss the subject, and wanting to sidestep their own ridicule, officials have now given UFOs a new name – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP).

In the USA, well-informed and now-protected whistleblowers are being encouraged by UFO Disclosure advocates like Dr Steven Greer to come forward with alien-sourced technology developments, especially in relation to clean energy generators – devices that produce electricity from environmental sources without burning fossil fuels.

Another type of technology high on the public wish list is anti-gravity shielding. Isolation from gravity also explains how UFOs can make “impossible” turns and maneuvers. Their isolation from the universal, subtle magnetic Field shields them from gravity and also the source of inertia. With no inertia present in their shielded environment, pilots can make sudden turns at high speed and not be crushed by inertial forces.

The propulsion drive units of UFOs are probably based upon electric fields reacting against the universal magnetic Field. Even more interesting is the ability of UFOs to disappear from one location and immediately re-appear quite a distance away.

This means they are using the dimensional property of Location. As revealed in my book, Spiritual Metaphysics: Answers to the Great Mysteries of Life, Location is one of the nine physical dimensions. It is a dimensional attribute which determines where an object belongs in the universe. Every location in the universe has a unique etheric signature tone. The question is whether its signal can be detected physically as well as etherically. If so, then, sooner rather than later, we can open up a whole new avenue of research into teleportation.

Imagine, teleporting from Los Angeles to London in an instant rather than sitting for endless hours in a mind-numbing and body-numbing airline seat. Sounds good to me! Let’s encourage more of those insider disclosures. It’s time for transportation technology to take a long-overdue leap forward.

Imagine, having a motor home that floats up in the air, travels anywhere you want without the need for fossil fuel, and sets down quietly each night in an area of true natural beauty without the need to carve the place up with roads to make all that possible.

As I explained in my new book, The New Enlightenment, a critical mass of leading-edge thinkers now function in a stage of consciousness that includes an increasing level of intuitive insights. With this mass awakening comes an Age of Aquarius-style demand for freedom of information, and that means revealing secrets.

UFOs, extraterrestrials, the true history of humanity, you name it, it’s all coming out and the revelations are gaining steam. Find out more about the New Enlightenment and how this quantum leap in human consciousness is great for everyone and especially for spiritual seekers…

The New Enlightenment Begins

by Owen Waters

The last period of Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, emerged over 300 years ago. As it turns out, it was merely a practice session for the big one!

Today’s New Enlightenment is more than just another step forward in human development. It is a quantum leap forward into an uncharted territory filled with unlimited potential! The original Enlightenment developed the conscious mind. The New Enlightenment develops it further with access to the additional capabilities of the superconscious mind.

When you focus your mind upon the new frequency of consciousness, you open the door to the enormous information resources available to your superconscious mind. Unlike the physical brain, your mind can vary in size, from close-minded minisculity to superconscious expansiveness, which comes with access to any information, anywhere and at any time.

Unlike your physical brain, which began with a blank slate when you were born, your superconscious mind knows your deepest yearnings for the lifestyle that is most meaningful to you. Like a faithful protector, it works tirelessly to impress your conscious awareness with helpful guidance as your circumstances change. If only more people would listen to those subtle, yet vital hints, their lives could be filled with great inner joy as each one realizes and experiences their own unique purpose in life.

You may have already discovered how conscious creativity conquers many of life’s challenges. Now, try the superconscious version! New Enlightenment consciousness, previously the domain of leading thinkers, has now moved into the mainstream and is readily available to all seekers of a better life and a better world.

My new book, The New Enlightenment: Transformation into an Age of Abundance, reveals the distinct stages of human consciousness and how the dawning New Enlightenment opens the door to a beautiful life filled with purpose, abundance, and true inner joy.

The Summer of Light

by Owen Waters

The Summer of Love, 1967

While 1967 is remembered for the Summer of Love, the year 2023 may very well be remembered for The Summer of Light.

During the 2010s, most leading thinkers were quite content in the early stage of heart-centered consciousness.

They had found peace by abandoning pointless ambition in favor of meaning in life and vibrant relationships with others. They were exploring the heart-empowering value of cooperation and leaving behind competition and its effect of estrangement from other human beings.

Rather than becoming what others thought they should become in order to rank high in societal approval, they were homing in on personal purpose as a rising source of inspiration. It had long since become obvious that there was more to life than competing to see who would own the most toys when they die.

The emotional effect of witnessing human helpfulness was already arousing their curiosity by tugging at their heartstrings. Don’t you just love a helpful, honest person who wants the best for, not just you, but for everyone they meet?

The urge to care and connect was continually finding more opportunities to express itself. This stage of consciousness added heart to the world of commerce, expanding its vision into something far more rewarding than simply making a greater profit than last year.

And then, suddenly, the world stopped, and it stopped long enough for people to re-evaluate everything.

Remember 2020? A world-changing event. An invisible bug, said to be spreading wildly and seeking out victims for a rapid death. Result: Mass panic!

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs

Just as people were getting settled into the Maslow Hierarchy’s heart-awakening stage of Self-Actualization… wham!

They were suddenly plunged, like it or not, into Fear for Survival mode… Maslow’s bottom of the triangle revisited!

Now, look what happened next…

After the protracted drama of the pandemic, people eventually snapped back to more-or-less normal consciousness, but with a difference. After having been settled in Self-Actualization, then beaten down to the bottom stage of Survival, anyone with a clear mind rose into a newly-empowered position, propelling themselves beyond Self-Actualization and right into the Transcendence stage!

This boomerang effect from the deep crisis brought about the New Enlightenment faster than would have otherwise been expected.

By the summer of 2023, a decidedly positive mood had dawned, along with a newly-established Age of Enlightenment. While 1967 is remembered as the Summer of Love, 2023 may very well be remembered as the Summer of Light that started this global awakening.

The dawn of the transcendent New Enlightenment opens the door to a beautiful life filled with purpose, abundance, and true inner joy. It means that we now have the readiness to face any challenge in life with inspired resourcefulness.

Spiritual seekers find the new consciousness especially helpful as actively engaging in it can be ten times more effective in gaining enlightenment than passive meditation practices!

Now, discover what gifts and capabilities the universe will bring in the coming months and years as The New Enlightenment unfolds…

The Three Dimensions of Time

by Owen Waters

“If I only had Time.” That’s what the Creator thought while mulling over the design stage of the Creation.

Time is necessary so that experience can be gained from choices taken and changes made at an appropriate pace for learning.

In the Great Here and Now which is the underlying reality of Infinite Being, time as we know it does not exist. Any change has an instantaneous effect. Therefore, in order to enjoy the adventure of immersion in a physical universe, Infinite Being and its Creator aspect needed the dimensional property that we call Time.

The popular concept of dimensions today is that we live in a four-dimensional world – three dimensions of space and one of time. However, the Law of Creation points to a different reality. As you may know from previous articles, the Law of Creation has three components and a tendency to self-replicate.

There is one Creator, operating through the three aspects or creative principles of Thought, Feeling, and Motion. The nine dimensional properties of matter are created by each of those aspects creating three varieties of itself. Three times three varieties means that there are a total of nine dimensional properties of matter.

Time is one of the nine dimensional properties of physical matter. Another is Space. Because of the Law of Creation’s tendency to self-replicate, there are, furthermore, three varieties or directions of Space – commonly expressed as length, breadth, and height.

Now… get this… as well as three varieties of Space, there are three varieties of Time!

We normally think of the standard, tick-tock version called Linear Time. Like a clock on the wall, Linear Time passes at a fixed rate regardless of whatever you do to change your perception of how slowly or quickly it is passing.

Variety Two of Time is called Experiential Time. In daily life, you notice that time can pass quickly or slowly in your perception. Experiential Time is related more to inner consciousness and feelings than it is to the outer world, so its significance to you increases as your frequency of consciousness rises.

For example, the spirit world of the afterlife is a subtle, higher-frequency version of physical experience. In the afterlife, Experiential Time plays much more of a role than Linear Time.

Variety Three of Time is something that comes into play when you become more attuned to your soul’s level of consciousness. Variety Three produces Timelines. These are alternate realities which are potentially of interest to your soul. Any important change in your primary focus, such as a spiritual awakening experience, will shift you onto a more appropriate timeline. The shift will be obvious to your soul level of awareness, but your physical brain is only designed to be aware of your current timeline. To your physical brain, the only change will be that life is somehow better than it used to be.

The great miracle of the dimension of Time is not that it can have multiple timeline versions or that it can expand or contract to suit your consciousness, but that Linear Time can produce the illusion of slow change when all that really exists is the Great Here and Now.

Think about it, in a reality where all things are Here and everything is Now, how did the Creator create the illusion of Time so that we could play out our lives of experience at an appropriate rate?

The best analogy is that of a motion picture. The original movie films consisted of a sequence of photographs being projected onto a screen at, typically, 24 frames per second. Even though each frame contains just a static image, the illusion of motion is achieved by subsequent frames being projected fast enough for the human brain to perceive the changes as smooth action. Changes through time are created from a collection of static images, and that is the same way the Creator created Time.

The universe flashes on and off billions of times per second. It is re-created in each of those rapidly-appearing, still-action frames. Each frame is a different viewpoint of the Great Here and Now. The physical brain is entrained to the timing of that universal movie projector mechanism. All we see is continual change, even though such change consists of many still-action, static frames.

With the framework for Time in place, it is then possible for human decisions to be made and for subsequent changes to unfold at a speed that allows for learning and reflection. And that was achieved even though, in truth, all changes are just a collection of different viewpoints of the Great Here and Now.

Isn’t the universe a wonderful creation?

P.S. Space and Time are just two of the nine physical dimensions. To study the other dimensions in detail, please refer to my book, Spiritual Metaphysics: Answers to the Great Mysteries of Life.

Ascension to a Higher Dimension

by Owen Waters

Dimension is a term often used to refer to other realms of existence, but it can cause confusion in that the word dimension also refers to measurable attributes of this reality such as time or space measurements; for example, length or width.

Other realms of existence could be more descriptively called densities, levels or density levels. In the light of emerging knowledge, I recommend that people avoid potential confusion by using the words density or density level instead of dimension to describe a vibrational level of existence.

The lowest density level of manifestation for Planet Earth currently is third density (3D), the regular physical form to which we are accustomed. There are lower density levels, but they only apply to the frequency of consciousness of basic items like rocks and subatomic particles. Their location level is still 3D, right here with you and me.

First density (1D) is the level of consciousness of the basic physical elements and objects that are called ‘inanimate’ by many people, such as rocks and crystals. Because all objects in the universe are composed of compressed divine consciousness, they all have a sense of awareness at some level. For example, physics experiments have shown that when subatomic particles collide and separate, they continue to remember each other and act out their connected relationship.

Second density (2D) is the level of consciousness of biological existence – of plants and wild animals, even though their physical forms are located in the 3D realm. As 3D is currently the lowest level where the earth maintains a physical body, there is no 2D version of Earth below us.

Third density (3D) is currently home to physical human beings. It is a realm of self-aware identity and intellectual development. While your physical body is currently located in third density, your mind is free to roam to other frequencies or density levels of awareness.

Fourth density (4D) is home to spirits in the afterlife and it can also support physical humans. There are numerous sub-realms of existence within fourth density, with the lower sub-realms being more dense than the higher sub-realms.

While spirit or “astral” beings are ethereal and ghost-like relative to us, they are solid to each other, so they are correctly referred to as quasi-physical rather than nonphysical beings. Those who inhabit the realms of the afterlife in spirit bodies experience relative freedom as their quasi-physical spirit bodies respond easily to their mental direction. Spirit beings find it easy to levitate and they can instantly relocate to a desired destination.

They can also create quasi-physical objects using the pressure of mental energy applied to the universal supply of etheric energy. They call these objects thought forms and a well-made thought form will exist for more than a year without any further attention before it dissolves back into the surroundings as etheric energy. With regular attention, it will stay in existence as long as it is important to someone.

Fifth density (5D) is home to soul consciousness and is a nonphysical realm of spiritual light and sound energies. Traditionally, 5D is referred to as the higher mental realms. Although souls are perceived as separate individuals in 5D, just as we are in the physical realm, they are also fully attuned to their connectedness with each other. Soul bodies are nonphysical fields of higher mental energy. Your soul can also be referred to as your higher self or as the superconscious aspect of your total field of awareness.

On the day all this changes…

Ascension or rapture to a higher world has long been anticipated. But, today, with global changes accelerating ever faster, we are obviously reaching the climax of change. When it happens, in the blink of an eye, the physical material of the planet and everything upon it will upgrade from 3D to a higher existence, well within the 4D frequency range.

This upgrade to a higher realm of existence became possible in the 1960s (remember how everything changed back then?) but the collective oversouls of humanity decided to avoid the shock of sudden change and let the changes spin out in a digestible form over several decades.

The day is rapidly approaching when the earth will rise in vibration because everything physical – our bodies, the ground beneath our feet, and everything around us will rise in frequency. Our destination will be the basic realm of heaven and, yet, we will be physical!

To be informed is to be prepared. Discover how mass ascension will happen (it’s not quite as simple as you might expect, and for a very good reason.)

Spiritual Faith

by Owen Waters

With spiritual faith, your heart and mind open up and guide you in your search for personal truth. Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

Faith may sound like a form of belief, but belief is actually a fixation upon a version of the truth. When a belief becomes rigid, seeking and growth are not possible. For example, the biggest challenge facing quantum physics today is the enormous shift that is required from previous beliefs about the nature of reality. Researchers have to shift to a new view where time, space and physicality are liberated from the constraints which people previously believed that they had.

If you believe that you exist in a fixed location in space and that time must always pass you by like clockwork, think again. Subatomic particles do not share your beliefs about time and space. They take a much more liberated view. Subatomic particles pop in and out of physical manifestation millions of times per second, just when and where they feel like it. Their disregard for time is perplexing, to say the least, as they respond immediately to events in their future and even time travel backwards to alter their past when it suits them.

Now, we can all identify with the idea of creating a different future based on decisions that we make now, but creating a different past? Well, that’s what subatomic particles do, right there in the lab. As a result, in the mathematics of quantum physics today, one of the necessary tools is negative time – the ability of a particle to send a message into its past in order to change its own history.

Subatomic particles are friendly by nature. When they bump into another particle that they take a liking to, and they seem to like all of them, they become friends and carry on communicating with each other, for ever. The fact that they may become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate.

The speed of their communications comes as a surprise. Einstein said that nothing exceeds the speed of light, but apparently subatomic particles weren’t listening when he said that. They communicate over huge distances virtually instantly. If there is a limit to the speed of transmitted thought, then that speed of thought has to be millions of times faster than the speed of light.

Subatomic particles, by their very freedom, serve to remind us of our true potential as conscious beings in a conscious universe. We are limited only by our personal collection of beliefs, our belief system. We also share our part of a larger, societal belief system, the consensus reality.

Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

With spiritual faith – an open heart and an open mind – we can discover more about today’s New Reality and what it means to humanity. Discovering more about life expands our view of reality and evolves our belief systems.

Besides, and this is what really counts, it’s fun!

Stairway to Heaven

by Owen Waters

There is a stairway to heaven. It leads through the heavenly realms of the afterlife and continues even further, all the way to the ultimate state of consciousness from which the universe sprang into existence.

Infinite Being, the ultimate source of all things, created a universe of infinite diversity, of infinite parts of the whole. As humanity, we are the adventurers who projected ourselves into physical experience in order to bring deeper focus into our experience. Our purpose in the physical realm of consciousness is to gain a sharply-defined sense of identity and to grow from there.

The long-term mission of each and every one of us is to gain expanded awareness through life’s experiences until we eventually return to the one God, no longer as curious seekers, but as self-realized, conscious gods.

The steps of the stairway are formed by nine density layers within the consciousness of the Creator. Each density layer is composed of a different degree of compression of Creator consciousness. The higher steps are more ethereal, or less compressed, than the lower ones. The lower steps are more compressed, more sharply focused, and more clearly defined than the ones above.

Every density layer (or “dimension” as some people call them) is composed of consciousness. Even the physical world, with its apparently physical objects, is really composed of 100% consciousness, compressed in a way that appears to be solid.

The Nine Densities of Creation

The Nine Densities of Creation are divided into three groups of three densities. These three groups contain the material, spiritual, and cosmic layers of existence.

The Material Group of Densities

The three most dense layers are the material group. These relate to basic physical existence.

First Density – Matter

First density consciousness is the realm of the atoms and molecules of physical matter as well as the basic sense of survival.

This is the natural frequency of the consciousness of the elements which form the basis of physical matter, including the physical bodies employed by plants, animals and humans.

Second Density – Biology

Second density supports the consciousness of plant and animal life as well as the urge to grow. Plant life, for example, reproduces and spreads until it reaches the limits provided by its environment. Second density is also the frequency of the basic emotions, such as anger and fear.

While plants and animal life resonate to a second-density frequency and consist of first-density atomic particles, they are located in our world in third density existence. There is no first or second density planet Earth. The lowest frequency manifested by planet Earth is third density.

Third Density – Individuality

Third density is the current realm of existence for the combined consciousness of physical humanity. It is where the consciousness of individuality and self-awareness is developed. Humanity’s experience of separation from its inner source is a deliberate experiment whereby the illusion of physical existence becomes very real.

The game of human physicality began long ago. As curious spirits, we progressed into a desire for maximum effect and then went on to discover how to create total immersion within the game. It is this total immersion within physicality which makes life on earth seem so real, so full of passion, so disconnected from our spiritual source and, yet, full of so much potential for self-discovery.

The experience of humanity’s separation from its inner source is achieved through using a physical brain which focuses on the five senses. These senses feed information to the brain from a universe which appears to be external. Our brains are wired to perceive space and to experience time. The turning of our attention away from inner, spiritually-connected information provides a sharply-defined sense of individuality, one which would not have been possible were our brains designed differently.

Third-density consciousness also supports other qualities for an evolving consciousness, such as the discovery of courage and optimism, and the development of intellect and reason.

The Spiritual Group of Densities

The next layers of density are the spiritual group. The gateway to spiritual consciousness is through the level of consciousness to which mankind is currently awakening – that of heart-centered consciousness. For humanity, this is where the adventure really begins!

Fourth Density – Integration

In fourth-density consciousness, the heart awakens to a natural unrestricted flow of unconditional love. In third-density consciousness, humans develop themes of separation from each other. In fourth density, they develop integration, or the healing of separation.

Fourth density is where the spirit realm, or afterlife, is located. Here, people resolve and integrate the emotional experiences that they gained during their physical lives. When today’s massive Shift in consciousness has played through sufficiently, fourth density will also become the new location for physical human beings. In this density, the qualities of balance and unconditional love are developed, which lead to the development of inner joy.

Fifth Density – Soul Consciousness

Fifth density brings with it the ability to create powerful realities and to transcend space and time. Once spirits in the afterlife have integrated their emotions and resolved their conflicts, they can pass on into fifth density. Fifth density is a nonphysical realm of the soul, of the “higher self” or inner being. Your inner being is your complete consciousness, and therefore includes the subconscious and superconscious aspects of mind.

Your inner being has a clear connection to the higher densities and to Infinite Being. Therefore, developing a clear connection to your inner being provides you with a direct source of spiritual empowerment.

While your immediate soul mates may number, typically, seven other souls, your soul family is much larger. It is closer to two thousand individuals, grouped together in a huge family of people with common likes and interests.

You share a similar energetic background, history, and many preferences as to the kinds of experiences that you enjoy. These are the people with whom you share the most empathy. To your inner being, they are the essence of “Home.”

Of the other members of your soul family, less than half will typically be in physical incarnation at any given time. Many will live in other countries and in other parts of your country. When you meet them, you recognize them as people whom you feel are special in some way. There is a resonance within your own consciousness that is quite different to how you would react to a total stranger.

Sixth Density – The Angelic Realms

Sixth density is home to some of the greatest beings who have ever graced the earth with their presence. The field of consciousness of a world spiritual teacher, for example, is enormous in comparison to the field of consciousness of one typical human. It is because of this great capacity of consciousness, along with their ability to divide their attention into many parts at one time, which allows world teachers to service the needs of all those who call upon them in their times of need.

Archangels and world teachers are based in the upper reaches of sixth density so that their awareness can encompass the entire planet in all its manifestations in fifth, fourth, and third densities. In this way, these global spirits are capable of detecting and responding to multiple calls for assistance all at once.

The Cosmic Group of Densities

When the ladder of human evolution has been climbed to its ultimate, spiritual heights, there is only one place to go next in the grand scheme of Creation. That next step is to become a part of the intelligence of a planetary being.

Seventh Density – Planetary Consciousness

There is much more to Gaia, the planet Earth, than meets the eye. Seventh density is home to planet-size fields of consciousness. In the third-density physical realm, she provides a home for humanity. Her spiritual heart, however, resides in this nonphysical, seventh-density realm of spiritual light.

It is not by chance that seventh density is where cosmic consciousness occurs. This is the entry-level density layer devoted to the cosmic scale of consciousness. A human being can visit seventh density during a period of cosmic consciousness, but they cannot reside there permanently, as it is designed to be a realm which is home to fields of planet-sized consciousness.

Eighth Density – Solar Consciousness

The spiritual heart of the Sun is in eighth-density consciousness. What we see in third density is its physical body, which is a faint reflection of its eighth-density, spiritual radiance.

An insight into the true scale of the magnetic body of the Sun can be gained from the heliosphere. This is a magnetized sphere of energy which stretches, from the Sun, four times further than the outermost planet of Pluto in every direction. That’s a 22 billion mile-wide magnetic body which contains, sustains and cares for the planets and all life forms within its sphere.

As well as living within the Sun’s third-density heliosphere, we are connected, at the eighth-density level of consciousness, with the spiritual being we call the Sun. You cannot be born within its sphere without first becoming a part of it energetically. We are, as stated correctly by ancient cultures, Children of the Sun.

Likewise, before you were first physically born on earth, your soul passed through an initiation of birth through the holy flame of the Logos of the Mother Earth. On a cosmic scale of consciousness, she is your spiritual mother, just as the Sun is your spiritual father. In the grand scheme of Creation, the Earth contains the closest consciousness to God within your reach, and the Sun contains the closest consciousness to God within your sight. Sending your love and gratitude to the Sun and the Earth not only makes perfect sense, it is the oldest spiritual practice on earth, and one of the most potent.

Ninth Density – The Galaxies and their Central Suns

A galaxy is a living cell within the consciousness of the universe. Like the Sun, which later gave birth to its planets, each galaxy gave birth to the suns within its massive body.

Although the central sun of each galaxy distributes a constant supply of higher energy from the Creator to the manifest universe, the central suns do not radiate physical light and are therefore invisible to the human eye. (The photograph above shows a cluster of stars gathered near the center of that galaxy, not a central sun.)

To appreciate the scale of Creation, radio astronomy has given us some idea of the total count of galaxies in existence. Currently, there are believed to be between 100 and 125 billion galaxies in existence in the universe.

The Three Aspects of the Creator

Before Creation, there existed only Infinite Being as perfect, unchanging consciousness.

Then, Infinite Being entered an active mode in order to achieve Creation by using the three creative principles of thought, feeling, and motion. This active expression of Infinite Being then created the nine-density structure within the envelope of the universe.

Those three creative principles also represent the divine functions of creation, preservation, and sustenance as performed by the Founders, the Watchers, and the Central Sun of the universe.

The Founders

The Founders of life in the universe, or Lords of Creation, are the fundamental designers of all that exists.

As humans are created in the likeness of Creator consciousness, we mold the world in ways that we see fit.

The Watchers

These are the guardians of all of Creation. The Watchers, or Lords of Karma, ceaselessly observe and adjust the universe to keep it in perfect balance in accordance with the all-pervasive law of action and reaction.

The function of the Watchers is to protect all life in the universe. When necessary, they immerse themselves into the deeper densities in order to manage details or to initiate new projects within the universe. One such project is very familiar to us: The creation of human consciousness and its gradual immersion into deeper, and therefore more sharply-focused, layers of density.

Like all layers of consciousness, we are directly connected to the Watchers. They are part of the spiritual lineage which connects us to the ultimate state from which we all came, that of Infinite Being.

In third-density physical existence, karma is often perceived as a negative because it reflects every thought and action, including fear and hate, with fear being a reminder that courage is essential to human evolution. However, karma is simply a law of natural, perfect balance as it guarantees that all created thoughts and actions generate appropriate experiences. In physics, it is stated as the law, “Action and reaction are opposite and equal.” It is neither positive nor negative. It provides a neutral reflection of who you are now.

When a person moves from material consciousness into heart-centered consciousness, it may appear that their old karmic pattern has ended. It has. In its place is a reflection of the new person and their unconditional love for all. As a fundamental law of the universe, however, karma never ceases to exist. This property of creational action is interwoven in the fabric of the living universe.

The Central Sun of the Universe

This is the power source of all life in the created universe. From it, energy flows in a vibrational cascade down through the central suns of the galaxies and the suns of each solar system, providing cosmic, spiritual, mental, etheric, and physical energies as needed by all life forms.

Beyond the Universe – Infinite Being

Infinite Being is the indivisible One, the origin of All That Is. The nine densities of this universe are held within its consciousness.

The Ultimate in Human Potential

As the one Creator immersed itself into the deeper layers of its own Creation, it progressively expanded the possibilities for exploration. Today, as expressions of Infinite Being, we function as self-aware humans, operating under unique conditions in this grand adventure called life.

As we gain human experience and progressively increase our awareness, we become spiritual humans. Then we become ascended humans and, eventually, we rejoin the larger, cosmic scheme of things on our path back to the original source from which we came.

Energetically, we exist, not just in third density, but on all density levels of Creation. We are one with Infinite Being in its ultimate state and we are connected to all of its levels of manifestation. While the One Creator is the original creative power, we are also endowed with the ability to create our reality as a living reflection of our thoughts, our beliefs, and our view of life and its possibilities. Within us, we have unlimited potential to create lives which are full of joy, purpose and meaning.

Within your life, you can choose any path that you determine, and, once you set an intention, a pathway opens up for you to fulfill that intention. As soon as you make a definite intention as to your new reality, the universe begins to reorganize itself around that new reality.

Now, to amplify that power of creativity to almost miraculous levels, consciously align yourself with your inner being and determine what is most important to you at that deepest level. Your fifth-density inner being is your soul level of consciousness. It is your own personal doorway to a full connection to Infinite Being. When you re-affirm your connection with your inner being, you are connecting to the very level of consciousness which has the most creative power.

In aligning with your inner self, you can fulfill any potential that you can imagine and become a living expression of your desired path through life. Your conscious alignment with such inner creative power will make synchronicity flow. It will open doorways along the way and dissolve barriers, making your pathway smooth and natural. (To study this more deeply, read the e-book, Soul Inspiration by Owen Waters.)

Your inner self is your personal connection to Infinite Being and it is the source of your spiritual empowerment. State consciously that you intend to work with the full range of your own consciousness and then watch miracles unfold within your life!

First Impressions Are Intuitive

by Owen Waters

Whenever you step firmly into heart-centered consciousness, your awareness immediately becomes more connected to your inner source of intuition. Through intuition, you become aware of information about people, places and events that springs from the essence of those people, places and events. This information is not delivered through the outside senses, although it may unfold within you at the same time that you receive sensory information.

While visual information relates only to the sense of sight, intuitive information includes much more. It includes all sensory information – sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste – and, in addition to that, the thoughts, feelings and memories that are relevant to the situation.

First impressions are more than just visual. They are intuitive as well. When you are about to meet a person for the first time and you are approaching them, you will receive a visual impression and your consciousness will also receive impressions about the nature of their consciousness, such as their true emotional state. That intuitive stream of information will come into your awareness alongside the visual stream and, if you are aware that it exists, you can add the intuitive information to your conscious impression of the person.

Everyone receives this intuitive information stream unconsciously, but, for it to arrive in your conscious mind, you have to:

1) Be aware that it exists.

2) Be open to receiving it.

The more you practice having an openness to intuitive information, the more this will develop.

Most people are not aware of their mental and emotional transmissions. In a crowd of people, these transmissions add together and there is as much mental noise as there is physical noise. As you become more in tune with your inner senses, you will find that, on some occasions, it’s better not to access your intuitive information for a time, just to give yourself some peace from the volume of mental noise.

At night, when you travel out-of-body in the spirit realms, communication is different than when you are awake in your physical body. The natural method of communication in your spirit body is to exchange information with others via thought. In the spirit world, people naturally know when to open for a communication and when to close down their thought transmissions again. There, you sense when a person ‘opens’ to you and sends a mental greeting, or when they are ‘closed’ and not offering any communication.

In daily life, first impressions are intuitive as well as visual. The reception of such information is automatic, but the conscious mind misses this information feed when it is focused entirely upon the external world.

Be more aware of your own intuitive information. Be open to it. Then, it will flow right into your conscious mind along with the visual information that your conscious mind is receiving.

Nocturnal Adventures – Part II

by Owen Waters

In Part I, I pointed out that a curtain of forgetfulness is drawn across our consciousness each time we awake from sleep.

Because our nighttime adventures typically occur in the fourth-density spirit world, which is a more subtle realm than our third-density physical world, our nocturnal activities are more vivid, more alive, and more real than anything that occurs during the day.

Because the spirit world is where the population of the afterlife lives, you often meet friends and relatives there who have passed on from the physical world. Nighttime can be a wonderful time of reunion with such dear friends, so it’s well worth making the effort to increase your dream recall ability.

Your spirit body naturally resonates to the spirit world. Once freed from the physical shell each night as your physical body falls asleep, it will normally move upwards from the physical third-density world towards the light of the fourth-density spirit world. Upon arriving, you will notice extra light everywhere: It fills the air and it radiates outwards from solid objects. This is because material in the spirit realms is made of etheric energy, which is a higher energy than the electric energy that forms physical matter.

The air in the spirit world is filled with etheric energy, ready to be drawn into some useful form by the intent of any individual. People in the afterlife can build a new home just as fast as they can visualize every part of it. It will stay in existence as long as they pay it occasional attention. If they want a little variety in the appearance of their new home, they can even redecorate it every day! If they leave and move elsewhere, the house will slowly dissolve, over a period of months, back into the atmosphere as etheric energy.

The fact that people who live in the spirit realms create homes does not exclude you, the temporary nighttime visitor, from doing the same. In fact, having a private retreat somewhere in the spirit world is a wonderful help in recovering from the stresses of daytime physical living. There is plenty of space in the spirit world for you to find a quiet, private location for your retreat.

One of the curious properties of the spirit world is that you can actually create your own space, fill it with objects of your own design, and it will be something that no one else would perceive unless they tuned into your thought pattern as the creator of that scene. It can even be large enough to include your own idea of an ocean scene with a perfect, setting sun. It won’t be the actual Sun; it’ll just be your own, private, artistic creation built for your own enjoyment, and it will last for as long as you pay occasional attention to it.

The spirit or astral body is quasi-physical. This means that, while it is subtle and etheric compared to the physical body, it is still solid in its own environment. In the spirit realms of 4D, matter is composed of etheric energy and is solid to the touch. If you bump into another spirit or astral body on your travels, they will seem solid, just like bumping into another person in the physical world.

The fact that spirit matter is less dense than physical matter gives you a lot more freedom of movement. You can meet a friend halfway around the world in one or two seconds of travel time just by projecting your spirit body to that new location. You tune into that person and, wherever they are, mentally project, and you will appear at that location.

A simple intention is all it takes to decide what each night’s adventure can be. Then, upon awakening, you’re halfway to remembering what happened.

So far, we have examined the possibilities for nocturnal adventures where you can:

1. Go and see friends and relatives who have either passed on or, just like you, are temporarily out-of-body for the night.

2. Notice how the 4D air is full of energy and materialize solid objects either just for fun or for artistic development.

3. Find a piece of land away from it all and build a small retreat there.

4. Decide who or where to go and see in a distant location, gather your intent, and project there instantly.

Remember this…

The challenge is to remember such adventures. Intent is the key. Tell yourself,

“Tonight, I intend to (have this adventure) and I will remember it upon awakening.”

Keep a notebook and pen right beside your bed and some source of light (even a flashlight will do.) Get in the habit of recalling dreams as soon as you awake and writing down everything you can. You’ve just returned from another world to a brain that’s had the night off, so those memories will begin to fade fast as soon as you wake up. Seconds count in writing down those dream details.

Realize that the immediate dreamstate is shallow compared to full immersion in the spirit world. The easiest dreams to recall are the ones that occur when you are almost ready to wake up. They are typically dramatic scenes filled with symbols that help you integrate the stresses that you have felt in previous days. The key to understanding them is to ask what each symbol means to you emotionally. Then, you’ll understand the stress that was being worked out in the dream, or the message that your inner being was bringing to the surface for your attention.

As you become more practiced in dream recall, you will soon reach beyond the initial dreamstate and remember the deeper, real-life experiences that you have each night in the spirit world.

The good news is that today, due to ongoing effect of The Shift, the veil is thinning between the 3D physical world and the 4D spirit world. As each year passes, people are remembering more and more upon awakening. You may sometimes find yourself between wakefulness and sleep and you are really not sure which state you are in. Today, this is quite common due to the thinning of the veil. As The Shift continues, physical matter will move fully into 4D, there will be no veil and full recall will be easy.

Nocturnal Adventures

by Owen Waters

Other than a few remembered dreams, our nighttime slumbers seem to be one big twilight zone of consciousness where nothing much happens at all.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

A curtain of forgetfulness is drawn across our consciousness each time we awake from sleep. What really happens at night is actually more vivid, more alive, and more real than anything that happens during the day in the physical world.

At night, we travel in a more subtle world than the physical one. Human consciousness has many ‘bodies,’ or shells of consciousness, each of which functions at a different level of awareness. The more dense bodies used by each human being are the physical body, its etheric energy counterpart, and the astral or spirit body. The less dense ones begin with the soul ‘body,’ which is a nonphysical field of consciousness that exists beyond the limitations of time and space, and then go on up the frequency scale of consciousness from there.

To understand where these bodies fit into the grand scale of universal consciousness, realize that there are 12 density layers of consciousness. Some people refer to the different density layers as ‘dimensions.’ As physical beings today, we exist in third density and are in the process of transitioning into fourth density. Fourth density has been traditionally the home of the spirit realms. It still will be after The Shift to higher consciousness has been completed, but the spirit realms will move up to higher sub-layers within fourth density as the physical realm moves in.

The spirit realms are referred to in the plural as there are many sub-layers of consciousness within fourth density. The spirit or astral realms are also known as the afterlife. They vary from the lower astral realms, through the highly-populated middle realms, and on into the higher astral realms or heavens.

When you eventually pass on from the physical realm, as we all do eventually, you will find yourself located in the exact spirit realm that corresponds to your normal frequency of consciousness. If you have strong issues to resolve, they will hold you back a little until you have worked through them by a process of integration. The whole experience of the afterlife is dedicated to the integration of whatever issues of separation were generated during a person’s physical lifetime. If they became polarized against a particular person, i.e. grew to hate them, then they will learn to see the situation from a higher perspective and heal that issue of separation through the forgiveness of themselves and the other person. Then, as the healing of any issues occurs, they rise higher in consciousness within the spirit world.

The mentality of 3D (the third density physical world) is SEPARATIVE in nature and 4D (the fourth density spirit world) is INTEGRATIVE, or healing, in nature. 3D resonates to the human solar plexus energy center, with its mental development and its competitive nature, while 4D resonates to the heart.

The higher aspect of heart consciousness is the first stage of spiritual awareness. It is here that, as a principle, the good of the many is recognized as being more important than immediate benefits to the self. This leads to a sense of service where the person wants to help ensure that the best is available to everyone.

This is the foundation of a world which is supportive rather than competitive. In such a world there really is more for everyone; much more, because the energy that was spent in competition against others is now funneled into productive work.

At night, when you leave the awareness of your physical body behind, it is not because your brain has shut down for the night. It is because your attention has shifted into your spirit body. Your spirit body rises out of your physical body and prepares to begin your nocturnal adventures.

In Part II of this article, we’ll take a tour of the spirit world and see what options you have for the best of nocturnal adventures. And, we’ll go on to discuss how to develop better dreamtime recall so that you can remember those adventures.

The Lightworker Objective

by Owen K Waters

We are in the midst of a revolution in consciousness which is affecting everyone. Even the most staunch traditionalists in society are being dragged into a vortex of ever-increasing change.

The 80-20 rule states that 80% of any change is typically caused by 20% of the people. The 20% consists of the leading thinkers of the day.

In spiritual matters, these leading-edge people are sometimes called lightworkers or old souls, indicating that they have learned more from their experiences through many incarnations. This advanced learning is stored as wisdom in their souls and they benefit from it consciously through intuitive inner guidance.

Today’s leading-edge thinkers planned ahead to be incarnate at this time in history to help make the essential positive changes in society possible. Social science has now begun to recognize them as a major group in today’s society.

More than 1 in 5 adults have made a shift

A survey in the 1990’s by researchers Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson found that 26 percent of American adults had become what they termed Cultural Creatives. Over fifty million Americans now fit the definition of a newly emerging type of humanity that has made a comprehensive upward shift in worldview, values and way of life. In Europe, a 1997 survey conducted in fifteen European countries showed figures that are very similar to the United States.

So, in a social setting the term ‘leading-edge thinker’ actually applies to more than 20% of the people today. Most of them don’t think of themselves as leading edge, nor do they typically realize how many other people are just like them.

The term ‘lightworker’ is synonymous with ‘spiritual seeker.’ You may or may not think of yourself a lightworker but, if you’re reading this, then you fit the definition perfectly.

The two categories of Cultural Creatives identified by Ray and Anderson fit exactly into the consciousness patterns of lower and upper fourth density. While our physical bodies are currently located in upper third density, our minds are free to soar through heart-centered fourth density and into fifth-density soul consciousness.

When a person moves from the third-density function of developing basic intellect into lower fourth density, their worldview expands and they become more aware of the needs of society. They take into account the local and global effects of their own actions and the actions of others that they support. Environmental, organic and peace-making concerns all come under this frequency band of consciousness.

Then, as outlined in my book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, when people move from lower to upper fourth-density consciousness they pass through the gateway of the heart. This brings them into the first level of spiritual awareness and they become more concerned with inner development and enlightenment.

Leading thinkers are simply people whose normal frequency of consciousness is higher than average. The higher your frequency, the greater your awareness and the greater your ability to lead change by showing others how to resolve the challenges in life.

Freedom from control issues

Two popular issues today are control issues and self-empowerment. People who were raised to feel the need to be in control are now recognizing that this was just another form of fear which has no substance in reality.

Reality comes from your soul’s intuitive guidance because, at a soul level, you see everything that you need to succeed and achieve your purpose in life.

The opposite side of the same coin is the issue of self-empowerment, which is learned by people who break free of control by others and establish their own sense of inner strength and self-dependence.

The issue of self-empowerment is being explored at a societal level as well as an individual level. Every person who begins to realize that they are being deliberately disempowered and turns off the fear-inducing news broadcasts leads the world another step towards liberty from the chains that are designed to bind people to a life of servitude. Thanks to the awakening of lightworkers and leading thinkers, the world is waking up to a whole new standard of personal power and dignity.

Lightworkers often choose to experience major challenges in their lives, not because they need the experience, because they have mastered those challenges in previous incarnations. Instead, lightworkers choose to experience challenges because other people need leading thinkers to show them how to resolve these issues. The more the leading-edge people succeed in resolving these issues, the easier it becomes for the rest to follow.

There is a global mind atmosphere or ‘mind belt’ of human consciousness around the planet. You are subconsciously linked with the mind belt 24 hours a day. It affects you and you affect it. Your contribution to the mental and spiritual health of the world is made every second of every day.

The Lightworker Objective is to be a pioneer in the advancement of consciousness, often adopting certain challenges in order to work through them and, by doing so, creating a pattern in the mind belt to make it easier for others to follow.

If you are currently working through a major life challenge and feel as though you’re going round in circles and getting nowhere, STOP and look for the gift in that challenge.

The gift is that, by loving yourself and others more, you can rise above the challenge and become more of who you really are. Then, the experience changes from one of challenge to one of self-empowerment.

Real strength does not lie anywhere in the outside world. It lies within you. Once you find that inner power, you rise above any limitation and stand as a self-realized leading thinker in a world desperate for spiritual freedom.

Toxic Secrets

by Owen Waters

Nothing in Creation is essentially good or bad, but we judge lower vibrations as bad because they oppose our natural desire to raise our consciousness.

For example, toxins in food vibrate at a lower frequency while health-supporting nutrition vibrates at a higher frequency. Because body, mind and spirit are interconnected, toxic food depresses the frequencies of your mind and spirit as well as your body.

Besides food, thoughts and feelings that are toxic will interfere with your ability to rise into the peaceful and enlightening realms of spiritual awareness. For example, being exposed to negative news material that incites division between people will take them further from the underlying reality that all life is essentially one.

It comes as no surprise that raising your frequency of consciousness has a healing effect on your body, but here is one surprising discovery that supports that simple truth in a powerful way. Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) was a natural science pioneer who, aided by his keen sense of intuition, observed that mountain streams purify themselves of toxicity. He observed that the meandering flow of mountain streams includes vortex eddies, which are areas of circular motion.

We now know that the key to explaining why vortex motion purifies water lies in realizing that the circular rotation of a fluid vortex induces etheric energy down its axis.

Toxins exist within their own frequency range. When they are carried in water and then the frequency of the water is sufficiently raised, the toxins can no longer manifest in either physical or pre-physical etheric form.

The energy-raising effect of adding etheric energy actually transforms lower frequency toxins out of existence!

Waterfalls are another cause of purification in mountain streams and rivers because oxygen is a ready carrier of etheric energy and the aeration caused by the waterfall allows oxygen to add energy to the water.

No wonder a brisk walk in fresh, oxygenated air produces such health benefits!

Fresh fruits and vegetables are typically sprayed with insecticides and herbicides. These are poisons which, while they are insufficient to kill large bodies like humans, still contribute to one’s overall level of toxicity. It seems strange that such foods are called ‘regular’ while the non-poisoned, unsprayed alternatives are given a special name (‘organic’) which makes them sound like the irregular option.

One’s level of toxicity is further enhanced by unfiltered, fluoridated water and airborne smog. Processed foods are a major source of toxic chemicals. Just look at the ingredients on the label, especially the mysterious chemicals with long, unpronounceable names!

Now that we know that toxins lower the frequencies of our bodies – physical, mental, and spiritual – we can more easily guide ourselves into healthy choices in life.

Your Inner Being As Your Greatest Resource

by Owen Waters

Your inner being – your soul or higher self – is not something that you have. It is what you are.

Your complete consciousness is your inner being. All of the so-called parts of your mind – the conscious, the subconscious and the superconscious parts – are all facets of your one, complete consciousness, your inner being.

Your conscious mind is the result of your inner being focusing attention upon the outer world through your physical brain and senses. When, instead, you turn your attention from the outer world toward the inner world, you access the resources of your inner being.

Your inner being possesses all of the wisdom, understanding and strength that you will ever need. It is your ultimate, personal resource. Your inner being is also your link with the universe and with the consciousness behind all life, Infinite Being.

If you think of yourself as living your life like a performer on stage, then your inner being is like the backstage technician who makes sure that your performance has all the support that it needs to make everything happen on cue.

The amount of knowledge and wisdom available within you is unlimited. In order to access it, you only have to make an intention to go within and find it.

Your subconscious mind runs all of your biological systems without conscious effort on your part. In fact, if you think about it, the subconscious mind of an ant knows more about biochemistry than today’s leading scientists.

Your inner being knows even more; in fact, everything about anything you want to know anything about. The trick is to ask the question and then silence your conscious mind enough to hear the answer.

When you become consciously aware of the true nature of your inner being and its resources of wisdom, understanding and strength, you begin to dissolve many of the former limitations to your growth.

The key to expressing your human potential is to know that all potential lies within you and you only have to open an external channel in order to begin to allow that unlimited potential to flow out into the world.

The power is within. To become empowered, you don’t have to become something new. You only have to realize that you already have that power within, then allow that infinite inner potential to flow into your life.

To develop your sense of conscious contact with your inner being, see it as a way for you to have a partnership in the project of Life. Be willing to poll your inner being for feedback on everyday decisions. It has a wider view of the energies of life than does your physical mind, so this is a partnership which produces enormous benefits toward happy, safe, and productive experiences.

The big question is, of all the techniques of spiritual awakening that could make such inner guidance possible, which are the ones that are most effective and easiest to perform? And, how can they be combined for best effect when meeting daily challenges?

Those questions are answered in my latest e-book, Soul Inspiration: Unleash the Power of Your Higher Consciousness to Dissolve Problems and Create a Better Life.

Mysticism as a Key to Scientific Breakthroughs

by Owen Waters

Mystics are visionaries. That’s what gives them the edge in scientific research.

Newton, Faraday and Einstein were all examples of mystics. Most of their research occurred, not in a laboratory, but within their visionary consciousness.

Mysticism is a learned skill, just like learning to ride a bicycle, and it is an exact science. You can develop this incredibly useful skill and gain that visionary edge, not just in scientific research, but in any endeavor that you plan to undertake.

Mysticism is the act of going within. Our brains are entrained upon the external universe, which they perceive through the five senses. The act of going within means to withdraw from the exterior senses and allow inner perception to come forth.

It is a paradox that higher frequencies of consciousness are obtained by lowering the frequency of the brain. Brainwaves are electrical activity. The more the outer senses are slowed down, the slower the brainwave activity. Basically, we have to reduce outer-directed conscious activity in order to reach inner consciousness.

Higher consciousness is a frequency of mind, not a higher electrical brainwave activity. However, both consciousness and electric energy do resonate within the same universal magnetic field.

This primal, carrier field is the fabric of the universe. It is essentially a static magnetic fluid that fills all of space. It does not, however, appear static when viewed at the quantum level. Continuously fed by solar radiation, it appears as a hotbed of continual electromagnetic activity.

In her ground-breaking book The Field, Lynne McTaggart weaves together a compendium of how this primal, universal Field underlies virtually all phenomena in life. Every type of electromagnetic energy, including light, has its magnetic component. This magnetic component is the Field, the fabric of the universe.

Higher energies, in the form of etheric or life energy, also resonate in the Field just as electrical energy does. Furthermore, mental energies resonate in the Field and emotional energies resonate in the Field. The Field is the underlying link that allows all actions to play out in the universe. It is, as Lynne points out, the reason that the universe is a connected wholeness rather than a collection of isolated people and objects.

The Global Mind

The Field plays host to the mental/emotional atmosphere of humanity around the Earth. This global mind of humanity links us together. Every thought that you think, and every emotion that you feel, pass into the global mind and affect everyone else on the planet.

Who says that one person can’t have an effect in this world? We all have an effect, and if your effect is an inspired one, then it will inspire countless others around the world!

This global mind phenomenon also explains why scientific discoveries often pop up around the world in several places at once, even though the discoverers were not in physical communication. These discoveries are ideas whose time is right, so the thoughts circulate to those capable of receiving and interpreting their frequency.

Life Energy

The study of etheric energy, or life energy, is about to become a larger specialty of physics than electromagnetism. Lynne McTaggart’s book lists many manifestations of etheric energy, including healing energy, scalar waves, homeopathy, and acupuncture treatments of the human energy body.

Etheric energy is a pre-physical energy. Some would call it non-physical, yet it appears solid enough to people in the afterlife, or astral realms. Their “spirit” bodies, and the solid-looking articles around them, are made of etheric energy.

Because etheric energy is responsive to mental pressures, objects in those surroundings can be materialized and altered at will. According to out-of-body expert Robert Monroe, some newcomers to the afterlife get very excited about this ability to instantly create and modify thought-forms. So much so, that they redecorate their homes daily, using their minds to create any decor they can imagine! Such is the power of instant visualization, at least in the afterlife.

Moving back to the physical realm, another example of etheric energy is the substance of Rupert Sheldrake’s morphogenetic fields, which determine the shape-to-be of growing plants and animals. When we can more easily generate and measure etheric energy, then this new branch of physics will open and grow.

The practice of mysticism involves contemplation, which is a state of mind beyond concentration. When you study an object in front of you, you concentrate upon it. The state of concentration then allows insights from your intuitive faculty to enter the picture, so contemplation is a combination of concentration and intuitive insight. These intuitive insights come from the object of your attention because your mind has traveled into the object and acquired information about it.

Let’s say, for example, that the object of your contemplation is a subatomic particle, the electron. The nice thing about consciousness is that it can downsize its focus to the subatomic level. If you were to tune into such an actual subatomic particle, what would your impression be of its shape?

Would it be a sphere of solid matter? No, we already know that that is not possible because Einstein proved that matter is energy, and therefore its solidity is an illusion.

Would it be a point of electromagnetic energy? Yes, but what would be its shape? What would be its function as it interacts with the rest of nature?

What kind of motion would be present? Would it be an vortex of electromagnetism, spinning and radiating, speaking to all of the rest of Creation? Would it have an etheric template, like a morphogenetic field, acting as a waveguide as it continuously cycles between the Field and physical expression?

Intuitive insight is evolving from its former, dream-like status into the verifiable world of rigorous, scientific control.

The Early Days of Science

This is similar to the transition of another discipline, the one from alchemy to chemistry that occurred 300 years ago. That was the time of Robert Boyle, one of the founding members of the early scientific research establishment, The Royal Society.

Robert Boyle
1627-1691

In those days, there was little or no industry to fund scientific research, so King Charles II was approached to fund research into the wonders of those days, hence the name, The Royal Society. After Boyle published his magnum opus, The Sceptical Chemist, the vagueness of alchemy was shifted irrevocably into the precision of modern-day chemistry. All thanks to his intuitive insights.

If Boyle had not possessed a sound, intuitive grasp of the subject matter of alchemy, then he could not have extracted its potential for growth; the growth which became modern-day chemistry.

Isaac Newton was 15 years junior to Robert Boyle. After a difficult upbringing, Newton attended Cambridge University to earn his Bachelor’s degree and then trained in alchemy under Robert Boyle.

Isaac Newton
1643-1727

Michael White, in his biography of Isaac Newton, refers to Newton as an obsessive, driven mystic, deeply involved in alchemy and a subscriber to a “heretical” sect of Christianity, i.e. one with some ideas of their own. Newton spent a large part of his life intensely involved with alchemy, leaving behind over one million words on the subject. A mystic to the core, he also spent a considerable amount of time studying biblical prophecy, Rosicrucian mysticism, astrology and numerology.

White concluded that Newton’s search for the philosophers’ stone and for scientific fundamentals such as gravity are inextricably linked. Newton was a mathematical mystic, devoted to finding out how God had constructed the universe. He was an obsessive character who searched for an understanding of the universe by whatever means possible.

During his life, Newton headed the Royal Society (1691-1727), invented calculus, and gave us an understanding of gravity and light. He formulated the three laws of motion upon which all of mechanics is based and, famously, narrowly avoided being hit on the head by a falling apple.

Michael Faraday began his work in science researching chemistry, where he discovered benzene and succeeded in liquefying a number of gases. He soon moved ahead into the new and fascinating realm of electricity. Most of his colleagues doubted even the existence of “such a phantasie as electricity.” Surely, they said, there could be no serious connection between such diverse phenomena as lightning, static electricity, battery cells and electric eels?

Michael Faraday
1791-1867

While Faraday’s Victorian colleagues were, by comparison, unimaginative materialists, he proved to be a true mystic scientist. He actually saw, in his mind, a dance of energy in electromagnetic fields. In Faraday’s mystical vision, ahead of even today’s mainstream view, he saw matter as consisting of tiny electromagnetic fields. In his Experimental Researches in Electricity, he said “Each atom extends, so to say, throughout the whole of the solar system, yet retaining its own centre of force.”

With Volta’s invention of chemical batteries and their ability to produce a controlled current, laboratory experiments in electricity became much easier to perform. Prior to Volta’s chemical batteries, experimenters had used Leyden jars, which only stored a small charge of static electricity. Volta was later honored by having the unit of electrical potential, the volt, named after him. It is fortunate that the inventor of the Leyden Jar, Pieter van Musschenbroek, was not chosen for this, as we could have ended up today with houses wired, not for 115 or 240 volts, but for 115 or 240 musschenbroeks!

Faraday’s successful decoding of electromagnetic behavior led him to invent the transformer, the electric motor and the electric generator. Later, James Clerk Maxwell became his student and friend.

James Clerk Maxwell
1831-1879

Maxwell, another true mystic, could see the field structure of electromagnetism clearly in his mind’s eye. He went on to develop mathematical tools for calculating the behavior of electromagnetic fields. This enabled him to calculate the speed of traveling electromagnetic waves, which was – surprise, surprise – the speed of light. From this discovery, a realization unraveled that light was electromagentism.

Albert Einstein was another deeply mystical figure, one who had the vision to see that space and time are compressible. His realization that “solid” matter was really just energy, created a global paradigm shift.

Albert Einstein
1879–1955

Einstein said that, “The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical. It is the power of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead.”

Einstein is also known for making statements such as:

“God does not play dice with the universe.”

“Religion without science is blind, and science without religion is lame.”

“The Field,” he even said at one point, “is the only reality.”

Perhaps the most mystical statement of all came from Michael Faraday who, referring to life in general, said:

“All this is but a dream.”

The practice of mysticism is the practice of going within. Any meditative practice will help you develop this skill and gain that visionary edge in any endeavor.

Radiant Heart Energy

by Owen Waters

The gateway to spiritual consciousness is through the heart.

The Creator designed the human experience to consist of twelve stages of evolving consciousness. As I detailed from the original research in my first book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, these range all the way from basic survival to the ultimate state of spiritual consciousness.

Much of the 20th century was devoted to the fifth stage of human consciousness, which is intellectual development. Today, people are migrating in droves to the next stage of human growth, which is heart-centered consciousness.

When a person focuses their intellect through the lens of heart-centered consciousness, they see how much the world needs help and healing rather than the old ways of competition and destruction. The initial stage of heart-centered consciousness produces a constructive, global outlook. It also places a person just one short step from the later stage of heart-centered consciousness and the dawning of spiritual awareness.

“Love your neighbor as yourself” is a guideline that has been with us since the early days of human development. Today, it’s no longer a distant ideal to be sought. The mass shift to heart-centered consciousness means that unconditional love now comes to people naturally.

The complete love and acceptance of yourself and others is the heartbeat of the New Reality.

Feeling unconditional love towards others is the key to successful, meaningful interactions with everyone with whom you meet in any situation. Feeling unconditional love towards yourself fosters a healthy sense of self-esteem which builds a positive reality based upon mutual support.

Even if there are outer behaviors that need improvement in yourself or others, it is unconditional love that is the key that will find the solutions that will bring positive transformation to those behaviors.

Once you begin to think with an open heart, you are stepping from basic human consciousness into the spiritual stages of human development. This is exactly what we came to earth to accomplish because finding spirituality is fundamental to the human experience. It may take courage to move into heart-centered consciousness, but once you acquire the expanded view of a life filled with love, you will never want to step back to the way things were.

You will soon find that any worries or fears that arise in your life can be transformed by the greatest power in the universe – that of unconditional love. It is the power of love that holds the universe together. It is a force of attraction that permeates every cell of your body and constantly reminds you of the love of the Creator for all of life.

Father-Mother God

by Owen Waters

The concept of God as a Father-Mother principle, not just a Father God, is hardly new. For example, the Hindu religion has focused largely on the Mother aspect of God for over 3,000 years! It was to Mother God that Yogananda found his greatest inspiration throughout his early life.

The Christian Science movement, founded in 1879, is one which holds the Father-Mother God principle as central to its teachings. They regard the masculine qualities of God, such as strength, constancy and protection to be related to the Father aspect of God, while the feminine qualities, such as gentleness, compassion and nurturing to be related to the Mother aspect of God. They do not see God as two ‘people’ – a male entity and a female entity – but rather as an integrated, all-pervasive presence possessing both aspects of consciousness in equal balance.

If we look at the nature of the original consciousness which is behind all things, we can better understand the concept of an integrated Father-Mother God. God is not a person. God is an everywhere-present, all-knowing intelligence which created and maintains the universe. Behind even this creative presence, is the ultimate, original, unchanging state of consciousness, that of Infinite Being.

Infinite Being is a state of perfect beingness which contains all potential. As such, it fundamentally does not “do,” it just is. It is perfection, and therefore unchanging. However, at some point, Infinite Being decided to ‘become,’ rather than just ‘be.’ It decided to manifest its potential, and then to act out every part of that potential.

That greatest mystery of all time – why Infinite Being decided to “become” rather than just “be” – has now been answered by a spiritual master who went beyond where anyone has gone before and succeeded in retrieving the answer! The story of his return, and the stunning answer to the mystery, is told in the e-book, Discover Your Purpose in Life (see below*).

Once Infinite Being had made the decision to create the universe, it achieved the Creation through its only available tool – that of consciousness. Infinite Being divided its consciousness into two complementary aspects. In one direction, it focused intent. In another direction, it focused feeling. Then, it applied motion so that the two facets of itself – intent and feeling – could interact with each other as intertwined waves of consciousness in motion, manifesting as the energy to sustain all forms of life. In this way, Infinite Being extended itself from just being, into a state of action and creation.

The dividing of the ‘waters’ of original consciousness into two, complementary aspects created the aspect of intent and the aspect of feeling. These two principles of consciousness interact together in perfect, equal balance. Were they not perfectly balanced, the universe would cease to exist!

People traditionally find comfort in thinking of God as a parent-like presence. The two aspects of original consciousness on a grand cosmic scale do not translate well into human gender terms. However, you could choose to think of the expansive intent aspect as the part which seems more father-like. You could also choose to think of the feeling aspect as the Preserver of all of creation and the one which seems more mother-like. However, these are just images to help us identify, from a human perspective, with the vastness of the consciousness of God.

God maintains the universe through a perfect balance of the complementary aspects of its consciousness. In the light of this, if people choose to think of God in parental terms, then the word God today has to mean ‘Father-Mother God’ and not just ‘God the Father.’

Remember that without God the Father’s other half, the universe would cease to exist!

God the Mother Appeared First!

It may come as a great disappointment to fans of patriarchy, but when Infinite Being decided to create the universe, the Mother aspect of the Creative Trinity had to appear first.

The Mother aspect created space. Then, the Father aspect used intention to fill that space with what we think of as the Big Bang of Creation – the appearance of the framework of all matter from what appeared to be a center point of nothingness. Such is the magic of Creation. Then, the Mother and Father aspects joined together to bring the principle of motion into existence so that the universe could be filled with energy.

Think about it. If the Big Bang appeared first, before there was space and its ability to contain the explosion of initial Creation, there would have been one giant “Pop!”, then nothing. No containment, no framework, no energy, no matter, no suns, planets, plants, people, and no host of angels and nature spirits to maintain this wonderful universe.

So, if God the Mother is so important, where is She in the Christian belief system? That can be explained with a little history.

When Caesars Claimed to be Sons of God

When Christianity in its present-day form was being established, its founders had to compete with a long succession of Caesars, each one of which claimed to be a son of God.

The Christian claim that Jesus was the one and only son of God was a response to that state of affairs. It did not originally exclude far-away religions or the teachings of other messengers of God like Buddha or Krishna. It was just dealing with a local problem.

The importance of placing Jesus as the son of God made the church founders invent their own Trinity. Instead of the usual Trinities of other cultures, all of which included the aspects of father, mother, and bringers of light, they decided to place Jesus right next to God.

Then, they had to wonder what to do with the Mother aspect of God that is usually placed right next to the Father. Well, she got bumped over into third place and renamed the Holy Spirit. In keeping with their patriarchal focus, they then proceeded to hardly mention her anywhere in the New Testament and they rarely emphasized her supportive and healing role in answering the prayers of the faithful.

The Shift to Expanded Consciousness

Today, the concept of Father-Mother God has become a very timely one. As we progress through The Shift to heart-centered consciousness, the concept of patriarchy is steadily fading away into history. Father God, as a male persona, is part of the Old Reality thinking. The expanded concept of Father-Mother God is inbuilt into the emerging new awareness.

We are entering a New Reality where all people are honored equally, regardless of race, creed, color, personal preferences and, especially, gender. Heart-centered consciousness means unconditional love and acceptance of all people in their infinite diversity. We exist on this earth as the eyes and ears of Infinite Being as it seeks to experience itself through the infinite variety of every possible viewpoint.

Diversity is integral to our purpose in existence.

Your purpose in life includes the development of your own potential so that you can become the most unique ‘you’ possible. Today’s emerging heart-centered consciousness means that people will support, rather than compete against, the efforts of other people.

As New Reality consciousness expands, human potential will flower in creative ways never before imagined possible. You can think of God as a balance of Father-Mother God consciousness or simply go beyond that to think of Infinite Being as the ultimate state of unchanging perfection. Either way, remember that the conscious awareness of the presence of God is a mere thought away.

It is your concept of the God presence within which will feed the flame of your creativity and help bring your unique potential into full and joyful manifestation.

*The greatest mystery of all time in spiritual philosophy has been, WHY life began. Why, when God had been perfection in the first place, did God create the universe so that living beings could work their way back to a perfection which already existed?

The story of how a spiritual master who passed on in the late 1990s and then went ‘beyond the beyond’ – beyond where anyone on Earth had gone before – in order to bring back that very answer is told in the e-book*, Discover Your Purpose in Life by Owen Waters:

Peace and Happiness

by Owen Waters

Peace resides in the human heart. Inner peace creates outer peace in your relationships and in the effect that you have upon the global consciousness.

Peace is a choice. It respects your boundaries and it respects the boundaries of others. When you set your boundaries and stop others from intruding into your space, when you respect other people’s boundaries and do not intrude into their personal space, then it is possible to move on to the next step, a state of mutual cooperation.

Mutual cooperation means that you support each other in ways that come from your heart. You help people because you love the spirit within them. Their outer personality is not the important focus here; it is their inner light, their inner spirit that you can always love, regardless of their outward actions. This, then, is the foundation for unconditional love.

The best model for unconditional love is right above you in the daytime sky. The Sun shines on everyone alike, without any judgment. It is a blazing symbol of the Creator’s bounty and a constant guarantee of the energy you need for the experience of life.

When faced with each choice between love and fear, focus on your heart as the source of uplifting love and inspiration.

Love and support are the key requisites for lasting peace. The more people embrace peace in their own lives, the more they affect the global consciousness that we all share on this planet.

Happiness is the fruit of the tree of life. It is the needle in the compass that tells you that you are on track, that you are ‘on purpose’ in your journey through life.

True happiness is inner joy, that deep and genuine joy which lasts forever. It comes from being in resonance with your inner purpose, with your inner self.

Your inner self is your soul, the part of you which lives forever, the part of you that is always there to help, guide and protect you.

Within this inner soul burns the flame which connects you to the entire cosmos of Creation. It is your connection to Infinite Being, to the All That Is.

In this heart of your spiritual connection lies a wonderful essence. This is the essence of spirituality and joyful living. As your conscious connection with this essence grows, so does your level of happiness.

A connected life is a purposeful and rewarding life. It is one where you apply your efforts exploring the exact situations that you came here on Earth to experience. With love and wisdom, you transform these situations into lasting success.

Through life, you experience the endless variety of Creation. Through life, you journey back to that source from which you came. Through life, you find the inner flame which is the key to eternal joy and happiness.

The Journey Through Human Experience

by Owen Waters

In this physical world, the entire range of human experience varies all the way from Caveman to Cosmic consciousness.

Caveman

Cosmic consciousness

 

 

 

 

 

 

As revealed in my first book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, much of the 20th century was devoted to the fifth stage of human consciousness, which is intellectual development.

Intellectual development

Today, people are migrating in droves to the next stage of human growth, which is community-aware, heart-centered consciousness.

To put that in terms of the different density layers of existence, humanity is currently in upper third density (“Upper 3D”) and is transitioning into lower fourth density (“Lower 4D”). The stages of human consciousness and the density layers of existence relate to each other as follows.

The Material Tier of Density Bands of Consciousness

Stage 1. Upper 1D Survival instinct
Stage 2. Lower 2D Tribal grouping
Stage 3. Upper 2D Courage and exploration
Stage 4. Lower 3D Hierarchical order
Stage 5. Upper 3D Intellect and physical science
Stage 6. Lower 4D Community awareness

The Spiritual Tier of Density Bands of Consciousness

Stage 7. Upper 4D Unconditional love
(Note: Some people cause confusion by using the term “5D” or “the Fifth Dimension” to describe the characteristics of Upper Fourth Density.)
Stage 8. Lower 5D Inspiration and intuition
(Note: Your superconscious soul body is based in Lower 5D, which is a nonphysical density.)
Stage 9. Upper 5D Higher mental development
Stage 10. Lower 6D Spiritual enlightenment
Stage 11. Upper 6D The angelic realm
Stage 12. Lower 7D Cosmic consciousness

If my Mind is in 4D, Why is my Body Still in 3D?

While your mind can freely move up and down the frequency scale, your physical body is anchored to the vibrational frequency of the physical body of the planet. The planet, currently in upper third density, is at the borderline of the transition from 3D into 4D physical existence (happening soon – see Ascension to a Higher World), which is why life today is so full of rapid change.

Avoiding the Trap of Making Comparisons

In the physical world, humans can experience the entire range of physical experience and take as many incarnations as they need to achieve this. Although people work their way from the lower frequencies to the higher ones, it is best to avoid thinking of some people as ‘better’ than others because to do so drops you back into the limitation of Stage 4 hierarchical thinking.

A more practical way of looking at the different frequencies of consciousness is to visualize a piano keyboard. The C octave actually is directly related to the 12 stages of human consciousness. Middle C resonates to stage 1 survival consciousness, while the next 11 notes correspond exactly to stages 2-12 of human consciousness.

Piano octave – C D E F G A B

There are 7 major keys in the C octave and 5 minor keys. They all have equal function in the musical performance. Nobody thinks of the B key as better than the A key, even though it does have a higher frequency.

You could also think of the journey through human experience as being like a train ride, with many stopping places to see along the way to the final destination. If you chose to take a train ride from New York to San Francisco, for example, you might follow this route:

New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Charleston West Virginia, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago, Omaha, Denver, Salt Lake City, Reno, Sacramento, and, finally, the San Francisco area.

Along the way, it doesn’t matter which stage you have reached, so much as the sights, the experiences, and the joy that you gain from the experience. The soul of a person stopping in Philadelphia is no different than the soul of a person stopping in Sacramento.

Life is a package of experiences. Every stage along the way has equal value. And, when you get to San Francisco, you might just turn around and take the train back again, just to get more of the same experiences.

Reincarnation Pattern Changes

by Owen Waters

In my latest e-book, Ascension to a Higher World, I pointed out that we are getting very close to the long-awaited global ascension to a higher realm of physical existence. What I didn’t mention until now is that this event will remove the main reason for today’s high level of population growth.

While there are many reasons for the availability of more bodies into which to incarnate, these are all manifestations of the soul urge for reincarnation at this time. As always, soul demand and intention precedes physical manifestation.

One of the big soul factors behind the scenes for today’s population growth is what might be called incarnational tourists. The universe is a big place and these souls, who normally incarnate on a wide variety of other planets, learned of the coming big event on planet Earth. The Shift from physical 3D to physical 4D will be of huge value to their collection of life experiences.

So, the tourists headed over here, looking for any opportunity to incarnate into the biggest event in tens of thousands of years. Even if they are born here and then pass on into the afterlife before the physical ascension happens, they will still experience the afterlife version of the sudden upgrade in frequency.

Basically, just as it says in the Bible, the dead shall be risen first, then the living shall be raised up. That is, physical beings will be raised up into the frequency band vacated by the afterlife beings who will have been risen, as explained in my Ascension to a Higher World e-book.

Besides the population increase caused by incarnational tourist traffic, people who usually incarnate on planet Earth have been adding to the recent population growth by speeding up their rate of incarnation. In the last 300 years, instead of the usual schedule of maybe one incarnation, people have been engaged in rapid reincarnation, returning two, three, or even four times to experience as much as they can in these days of intense transformation.

Add to that yet another factor in today’s high population. Multiple incarnations of the same soul in the same time period. Lightworkers tend not to favor this as it splits the attention of the soul, weakening the focus available for their prime purpose. Some people, however, want to gain multiple perspectives during era of The Shift, so they incarnate in two or more bodies at different locations on the planet.

What Happens Next

So, what happens when the big ascension event is over? Obviously the tourists won’t be looping back around, looking for another incarnation. Even the locals will have had the peak experience of their lives on earth. Consider also that there are two types of locals:

1) Starseeds – advanced souls who came to earth anytime in the last few thousand years as lightworkers to help the population make it through the upcoming Shift to higher consciousness. Guess where those souls are going after the big event? Back home to the Pleiades, Sirius, Andromeda, and who-knows-where, happy to be older and wiser than when they left.

2) Souls who are still training within the 3D physical experience cycle. As there are potentially 288 incarnations in one full learning cycle (and some souls end up needing to repeat the cycle and go around again), there can be much need for learning still ahead for these younger souls. So, they’ll line up for reincarnation on the ascended earth, right?

No, the rules will change because physical life on Earth will be in 4D, not the 3D that they are in the process of learning to master through experience. There will no longer be a 3D Earth, but the galaxy is full of human-friendly planets with 3D availability. So, do we know where the 3D souls will go for their next incarnations?

Mass Dreams of the Future

Here’s one source of insights on that subject. A picture of the possibilities for more 3D experiences emerged in the 1980s book, Mass Dreams of the Future. It details the results of a research project that was undertaken where hundreds of seminar attendees were progressed (rather than regressed) through hypnosis into the future (rather than the past) to see what their future lives would be like in the time period 2100 – 2500 AD. Author Chet Snow summarized the results of this research project, which had been conducted by hypnosis expert Helen Wambach assisted by himself.

Of those subjects reporting that they are to be physically incarnate in those future time zones, they found that the information correlated remarkably well into certain categories. These showed common themes in the different living environments viewed in those future incarnations.

1. New Age-types who lived an ecological lifestyle in harmony with the Earth (and with high-tech comforts). This was an idyllic picture of a new lifestyle in ascended 4D.

2. In-space dwellers and people who lived on other planets – those in ascended 4D choosing to use their rapidly-evolving technology to becomes explorers and pioneers.

3. Isolated cases of individuals living in the remains of once-great cities. Well, even after ascension, some people prefer the old places and the old ways, even though most people moved away to live in the beauty of nature.

4. A world of dome-covered cities. Now, this is obviously the version of future living that shows life on a new 3D planet where 3D-focused souls will go to continue their paths of learning.

In sharp contrast to the green earth of the New Age category, this is a world where people will live under domes that offer protection against what will initially be an unbreathable outside atmosphere. It becomes a clean atmosphere later (after the 2100 AD era), but this is obviously not the same planet as the green, New Age Earth which will exist in 4D, but no longer in 3D.

Then, at a later incarnational date, the subjects reported that humans on the 3D dome-cities planet were able to venture outside of the domes into the newly-clean atmosphere and make rural life possible. They were then able to farm the land, initially in a low-tech way similar to the 1800s on Earth and later with the help of machines. At that point, they observed that the dome cities were still in use by people who preferred the controlled-climate cities rather than living out in the country with its seasons and weather variations.

The Lightworker Mission

Whatever the future brings in the decades and centuries ahead, our present focus is on the imminent ascension of the planet from 3D into physical 4D. As lightworkers, the need for our support and guidance for others is critical in these days of great change prior to the big Shift.

You can gain personal support in this from my e-book, The Lightworker Mission, which reminds you of why you came to Earth and provides powerful techniques for unlocking knowingness and the healing of yourself and others.

The Story of Creation

by Owen Waters

Stories and myths of Creation from around the world share a common thread. Most of them start with a division, a splitting of the original One into two complementary parts so that Creation could be achieved.

In ancient Egypt, more than 5,000 years ago, Creation was said to have occurred when the power of thought made light arise above the abyss. Here the two components before the creation of light were 1) thought, and 2) an already-created abyss of empty space.

In ancient Greece, the universe was said to have been a place without light until Eros (Love) arose, bringing light and order. Here we have intent and feeling bringing light into being.

In ancient Aztec culture an original ‘Lord’ and ‘Lady’ were said to have brought into existence all things. People throughout history have more easily understood the idea of father and mother figures behind Creation rather than the idea of original principles, or facets, of the one Creator. The Holy Trinity of Christianity includes both ideas – God the Father is the creative principle while the Holy Spirit is the love that permeates all space.

Hinduism, the origin of which predates recorded history, recognizes an original or Absolute state as the one ultimate state of being behind all things. Then, from the Absolute, sprang forth the principles of Creation. These principles are portrayed as the personalities of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

Brahma symbolizes the aspect of the Absolute that brings forth the works of Creation. Vishnu represents the aspect that preserves and sustains the universe – an all-pervasive love, in other words. Shiva represents the aspect that brings motion into the universe, making possible the creation, and the decay, of objects in the physical world.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam all share the same historic roots. In the Book of Genesis, it is said that Creation began when God created the heavens and the earth and then said, “Let there be light.” Notice that this initial act of Creation came before the creation of the stars and the creation of our Sun. Therefore, these initial instances of the words ‘heavens’ and ‘earth’ need to be taken metaphorically, not literally. The ‘earth’ was said to be formless and empty, like a pre-creational void, as the Spirit of God hovered over the ‘waters’ of the formless deep. So, here we have:

1) The intent of God the Creator, hovering over:

2) The formless deep of a universe-to-be. This ‘formless deep’ referred to the universe, not to the Earth, because the stars (and therefore the Earth) had not yet been formed. Then, later, all possibilities began with:

3) “Let there be light.” This is where motion was applied in order to activate the hollow shell of the universe. This, then, made all of Creation possible, including the stars, the planets, their biospheres, and all that they contain.

The common thread in all of the above stories of Creation is this: Intent and love together created a universe in the form of a void, an abyss. Intent and love were then set into motion in order to bring light and life into the void.

All of these stories of Creation are thousands of years old. Historically, they were told to people who believed that the Earth was all there was to the extent of the Creation. In general, they had not yet gained an appreciation that the stars in the sky were actually other suns in the remote distance.

Today, we have a much better appreciation of the vastness of Creation. Our Milky Way galaxy contains hundreds of billions of stars, each of them capable of supporting a number of planets.

In comparison, the size of the universe is staggering. As of 2021, astronomers announced that there are approximately 2 trillion galaxies in the universe and that gives an estimated 200 billion trillion stars.

That’s 200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the universe!

It stands to reason that the Creator of all of this vastness is an entity much larger than that which was created. Infinite Being is a consciousness so huge that the entire universe is held within its awareness and focus, within its conscious embrace.

Infinite Being is all things, it is all potential. As a state of being, it fundamentally does not “do,” it just is. Infinite Being is the ultimate state of being. However, at some point, Infinite Being decided to ‘become,’ rather than just ‘be.’ It decided to manifest its potential, and then to act out every part of that potential.

In order to achieve this original Creation, Infinite Being divided its consciousness. In one direction, it focused intent. In another direction, it focused its love, or its feeling. Then, in a third direction it applied action, or motion, so that the two facets of itself – intent and feeling – could interact with each other as intertwined waves of consciousness in motion.

In this way, Infinite Being extended itself from just being, into a state of action. This extension of itself had become what we call the original Creator. The One Creator has three facets, a triad of intent, feeling and motion. The existence of motion in this creative triad makes the One Creator an action-oriented projection of the original, non-moving, all-potential state of Infinite Being.

And yet, nothing specific had been created up to this point. There was, however, the potential for everything to be created. For this, a stage needed to be set, upon which Infinite Being could express itself as an infinite variety of possibilities and witness itself from an infinite variety of viewpoints. In order to provide that stage, the universe was created.

First, the concept of space was intended within the consciousness of Infinite Being. Next, this hollow, original shell of a potential universe was filled with love. Then, life was ‘breathed’ into the void when motion was added to it.

With the setting of the universe into motion, the ‘light’ had come. It filled all of space with infinite pathways of potential primary energy and, later, the potential for matter and all that matter could become.

Today, we find ourselves living out the latest adventure in the infinite experiences of existence. As facets of Infinite Being, we are each here to experience life as we see it from our individual, unique viewpoints.

You, as the soul within, are the observer of life. While you are busy with life in the physical world, it may seem difficult to connect with your spiritual aspect, your soul. But to do this means that you are connecting directly with the observer within and seeing the purpose in all aspects of your life. That is why the most rewarding part of the day is the time that you set aside for regular meditation. With inner support and guidance, your path through life becomes clear and filled with purpose.

If you haven’t already done so, make the time to practice meditation at the start of each day. A habit very soon becomes a routine, and this is one that very soon becomes the highlight of each day.

Higher Energies: The Ether and Etheric Energy

by Owen Waters

The ether and etheric energy sound like the same thing. Many people today think they are the same. Yet, they are as distinct and dissimilar as chalk and cheese or, to use a more appropriate comparison, magnetic energy and electric energy.

The confusion arises because the ether – the fabric of the universe – seethes with etheric energy, but that energy is not the medium through which it travels. The medium is the ether or, to use its more traditional spelling, the aether.

As an analogy, a battery is not so much a source of electric energy as the medium in which that energy is stored. If you drain away the energy, the medium still remains because the battery is not the energy. Likewise, the aether is the field of support for the active etheric energy which courses through the universe.

Let’s look at exactly how the aether and etheric energy differ from one another.

The Aether

The aether was the name given to a subtle energy field that fills all space and therefore provides a carrier medium for light energy to travel through the great void of space between the Sun and the Earth.

Then, over a century ago, an experiment which attempted to prove the existence of the aether failed. Rather than admit to faulty assumptions, the scientists of the day declared that the aether must not exist.

This conclusion ran counter to common sense. After all, if ocean waves travel through water and sound waves travel through air, then light waves must travel through something.

So, what is the something that is waving?

Meanwhile, the aether was replaced by a new name for the fabric of space: Spacetime. It was a concept that scientists agreed upon as a brilliant substitute, even if it made no sense to anyone else.

Today, the aether is back. Under a new name, of course. Today, it’s called the Higgs Field, and its existence has been proven using no less than the high-energy particle accelerator at CERN. Naturally, as a promoter of truth, Professor Higgs (now retired) was shunned and scorned for decades before his theory was proven by the persistence of some other brave souls.

So, what do we call this field, this fabric of space? The aether again? The Higgs Field? Personally, I prefer using Lynne McTaggart’s 2003 book title, which inquires into its nature and simply calls it The Field, with a capital “F.”

The Field is a primary form of magnetism. It is a subtle magnetic fluid that can be distorted or compressed like a gas and it can flow through the poles of a bar magnet in a highly condensed form. As a magnetic energy, it is attractive in nature. It is intensified within and around matter, where its attractive nature produces the force of gravity.

The Field is a subtle, fluid, magnetic energy which fills all space.

The Field is the fabric of space.

Etheric Energy

Next, we turn to etheric energy. Many people have investigated this universal life energy. They have given it names like zero point energy, prana, vital life force, chi or qi, orgone, quintessence or the fifth element, odic force, cold electricity, scalar energy, tachyon energy, vacuum energy, radiant energy… the list goes on.

As a more subtle cousin to electricity, etheric energy is the life force that streams towards us from the Sun, energizing and motivating all forms of life.

Etheric energy is universal life energy

Etheric energy in healing

Etheric energy is the life energy that passes from a spiritual healer to another person. It is the vitality or life force contained within air, water and food. It is the mystery energy which powers the endless orbit of electrons in their atoms and planets around their suns. Without it, all life as we know it would quickly wind down to a halt.

The inevitable mastery of etheric energy will lead to far more wide-ranging advances than electricity ever did. Within etheric energy lies the keys to powerful healing modalities, pollution-free energy, and many other valuable innovations. Just the advent of abundant, inexpensive energy will transform the world, eliminating poverty and much of today’s third-world suffering.

Scientists who study the structure of the universe are actually already on the trail of etheric energy: Something is producing 80 percent of the gravity at play in the universe. They haven’t been able to see what it is, so they call it ‘dark energy.’ The existence of dark energy – and its product, dark matter – is one of the great, unanswered mysteries of science today. According to the observed movements of galaxies, it is calculated that 23 percent of the universe consists of dark matter and 73 percent of the universe consists of dark energy.

When a cosmologist stares at a clear, night sky, wondering where all the missing energy and matter is in the inky blackness of the depths of space, it would come as a surprise to them if they knew that a clairvoyant – a person who has developed the ability to see subtle energies – sees the same night sky filled with light.

It may sound unconventional, even rebellious to tradition, to suggest that a scientist should ask a clairvoyant what they perceive, but it has been done before, and with breakthrough results. For example, in the mid 1800s, one of the top research scientists of all time did exactly this. Carl von Reichenbach had heard that clairvoyants could see a subtle energy of which science was unaware. The fact that he, like most people, lacked clairvoyant vision did not deter him. Such a minor complication was not to be an obstacle to his curiosity and his desire to understand this new form of energy.

Carl von Reichenbach

So, for his experiments, he hired a group of skilled clairvoyants to describe to him what they could see. He cataloged the appearance and behavior of etheric energy, which he called the ‘odic force,’ around substances such as crystals, magnets, wood and metals.

Today, a cosmologist could, if they dared to be that adventurous, ask a skilled clairvoyant what they see in the clear, night sky. The clairvoyant would report that they see the etheric energies that surge through the universe. To their subtle perception, etheric energy does not appear in the least bit dark. In fact, it glows brightly with the light of its own life energy. To them, the night sky is filled with a brilliant interplay of pure and magical etheric light.

It is high time that more pioneers take mundane physics through a leap into metaphysics – the science of energies more subtle than physical electricity and physical magnetism. A voyage of discovery is waiting.

Thoughtspeed: The Speed of Thought in Free Space

Old ideas give way to new ones. Old barriers, sooner or later, crumble and fade away.

One idea that is crumbling today is the idea that nothing in the universe can go faster than lightspeed. This will be replaced by a recognition that thought travels many thousands of times faster than lightspeed – at the speed of thought in free space, or thoughtspeed.

In the early Star Trek series on television, the mission of the Starship Enterprise was to explore the universe and boldly go where no one has gone before. The Enterprise was able to exceed light speed; quite considerably, it would seem, as it was supposed to have traveled to the edge of the Milky Way galaxy in just a few hours. The cruising speed actually required for such a fast journey is millions of times lightspeed.

Science fiction is often a medium for possibility thinking. The possibility of humans touring the galaxy and beyond seems eminently reasonable. After all, human potential is, by design, unlimited. There is no way in creation that the universe can be just a set of pretty lights that we never get to explore!

Today, the shift towards recognizing thoughtspeed is just beginning. Faster-than-light phenomena are being observed by today’s physicists when they see the effects of subatomic particles communicating with each other. When a subatomic particle bumps into another one, they become ‘friends’ and carry on communicating with each other. The fact that they then become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate. When something happens to one particle, it lets the other particle know about it and, in pure empathy, it reacts in a like manner.

We know from the work of insightful pioneers like biologist Rupert Sheldrake that telepathy works, but how fast does it work? As thoughts are nonphysical, they certainly are not limited by lightspeed. The question is, how much faster than light is the speed of thought in free space? It is likely thousands of times, and possibly millions of times, faster.

In 2013, scientists used the latest in high-speed measuring devices to gain an idea of how fast energy particles communicate with each other across a 15 km (9 mile) distance. The equipment is still not sophisticated enough to produce a definite figure, but they did determine that the speed of particle communication is at least 10,000 times faster than the speed of light.

What’s next? Send particles over really long distances… like to the Moon? Then, when an earthbound particle reacts at thoughtspeed to its friend’s change of state as it reaches the Moon, you’d have a much better idea of the true speed of thought in free space.

In the 1940s, aircraft were limited to the speed of sound until they found a way through the sound barrier and were then able to travel at supersonic speeds. One day, when our spaceship propulsion drives are capable of accelerating ships to lightspeed, we will find a way for them to break the light barrier.

Then, we won’t be just looking up at the night sky any more. We’ll be flying through it, going where no one has gone before.

Spiritual Aliveness

by Owen Waters

Spiritual aliveness is the result of making your spirituality the day’s number one priority. Achieving this is fairly simple – as simple as being aware of one or two secrets of the universe and then setting your intention for each day.

Life is an expression of your spiritual self. You are here to gain experience on a grand scale. The small details of daily existence may not seem important, but they are all threads in the grand scheme of the life that you, as your inner self, planned before you were born.

It makes sense, therefore, to begin each day by becoming charged with the best supply of life energy available. Then you can make the most of each day’s experiences as they unfold. Life energy, or etheric energy, is the main energy transmitted by the Sun. The Sun also radiates physical energy, such as light and heat, but the amount of physical energy pales in comparison to the amount of life-supporting, etheric energy which courses through our bodies.

At dawn each day, the Sun brings a great change to your local environment. The swing from darkness to light at dawn causes a turbulence in the ethers as the life energy in the atmosphere reorganizes itself for a day of new activity. Sunrise is the time of nature’s awakening. It is the best possible time to recharge yourself for each new day of activity. Even if the sky is cloudy, the universal life energy comes streaming through your environment.

By beginning your day with a connection to the Sun’s energy, you are actually aligning with the natural system of Creation. Infinite Being constantly feeds the universe with life energy in order to maintain all motion in the universe. Infinite Being sends the energy needed to maintain life through the central sun of the universe. From there, it works its way through the central suns of the galaxies and then through the suns of each solar system. Local suns radiate physical energy in addition to life energy.

In a world where people’s main focus on life comes through their five physical senses, the Sun takes on a great significance.

The Sun is the closest thing to Infinite Being, the essence of God, within our sight.

What better way to start your day, than to breath in the power of this mighty orb as it awakens you and your surroundings to the energy of the new day?

Here’s how to achieve this, with one simple addition to the Infinite Being Meditation technique:

On each in-breath, visualize white light, representing life energy from the Sun, coming into your body via your nostrils. See this white light as filling your entire body every time you inhale.

This fills your whole being with extra life energy because air is a carrier medium for etheric energy. Etheric energy is highly responsive to directed mental pressure so, once the air is inside your lungs, the power of your visualization can be used to direct the life energy to fill your entire body. The energy will automatically follow your mental direction.

Here is the Infinite Being Meditation technique, revised to include the life energy charging technique:

1. Focus your attention on the slow, even flow of breath as it passes in and out of your nostrils.

2. Visualize each in-breath as white light filling your body. Then, at the top of each in-breath, mentally repeat once the affirmation “I am Infinite Being.”

3. On the out-breath, allow your attention to follow the flow of air from your nostrils. To induce an immediate calming effect, slow each out-breath and allow it to take longer than each in-breath.

4. Hold the breath out of the body for a short time. In this quiet space, don’t think, just be. Become quietly aware of thoughts and impressions that may arise from your inner self. The end of each breath cycle thus becomes your personal communion space with your inner being.

5. Return to active intention by starting the breath cycle again at step 1.

Start each day with a twenty-minute meditation and charging session. Start ten minutes before dawn. If dawn is at, say, approximately 7:10 am, then you would plan to start your day with meditation from 7:00 – 7:20 am.

Reorganize your daily schedule around the most important natural event of the day. The deeper connection to your inner being is well worth the effort. At least once a week, check when sunrise occurs by referring to the news media, or to weather sites such as weather.com. Then you can be in tune with the greatest cosmic forces of revitalization that occur each and every day.

Make meditation at dawn your number one priority of the day. Then everything that follows will be more energized and more in tune with who you really are.

Energetically, the highlight of every day is dawn. It is truly a magical time.

The Creation of Evolution

by Owen Waters

Life is hard. Species can die.

In fact, the human race would have died long ago if it weren’t for the fact that our bodies are designed to adapt to a constantly changing environment.

Evolution could be called adaptation, because the ability to adapt is the one feature that keeps all life upon Earth alive and functioning.

In the laboratory, it has been noted that a frog can be heated in a beaker of water to a degree that would normally be fatal, but it remains alive because it has had the time to adapt to the increasing temperature. Had the frog been suddenly exposed to water of such high temperature, it would have been unable to survive.

Charles Darwin, the pioneer of evolution theory, was a trained minister of religion as well as a naturalist. He thought long and hard about releasing his findings about the natural evolution of the species because he was keenly aware of the materialistic element in society which would use this information against religion. He was right, of course.

Others used his work to claim that there was no need for divine selection when natural selection occurs automatically. They have since gone on to claim that all life could have risen from prehistoric sludge completely by accident. What they don’t even begin to explain, however, is the existence of consciousness in all of this.

Consciousness is necessary for natural selection and adaptation to occur. If you move from a hot climate to a cold climate, you will adapt to the new environment, but first you had to have the consciousness to decide upon the move and make the adjustment.

What is consciousness? It is certainly more than a few electrical signals bouncing around inside a brain. Computers can mimic some limited aspects of the brain such as human logic, but they are not self-aware. There isn’t a computer in the world that can think for itself. Computers just follow sets of preset rules, and they do so as quickly as possible.

Behind all forms of consciousness is awareness. A sense of being is fundamental to all life because all life is constructed from consciousness. Even a solid object like a rock is composed of original thought and original feeling set into motion. All of life is contained within the consciousness of the original Creator, including the prehistoric sludge from which the first biological cells were formed.

Materialistic science today is in a cul-de-sac. There is no way forward for branches of science which fail to include consciousness in their theories. Consciousness is the most fundamental aspect of life. You can’t have a universe without it.

Human beings were originally designed and then evolved within the framework of a conscious universe, one created and developed by the original Creator. It took billions of years for planets to form and biological life to emerge and evolve, but remember this: Time is a creation of the Creator.

The Creator does not have to wait billions of years to see a biological process emerge. Everything happens in the Now – just different parts of the tapestry of time, which the Creator sees as a whole.

The whole design, inception, development and evolution of the universe is happening right now, within that overview, as seen by the original Creator. A little tweak here and there along the timeline can produce a perfect rendition of any form of biological life.

Life is too interesting to create in one Big Bang and then just watch it unfold, as if on auto-pilot. Life is a work in progress, a true work of art, and the Creator has the ability to make adjustments at any point along the timelines.

Science today searches for answers, but what it really needs is a valid search path.

Life did not begin by accident. It began by design.

Those branches of science which include the presence of consciousness will find the answers that they seek when they include the existence of original consciousness and intelligent design in their search.

Decoding the Tao

by Owen Waters

Long ago, the first time I read the ancient Tao Te Ching (pronounced “Dow Day Jing”), I ran into so many apparent contradictions that I felt like I was going cross-eyed with confusion!

I have not been alone in that type of feeling. To most Western minds, the nature of the Tao is a huge mystery that makes little or no obvious sense. I ran into statements that suggested that the Tao was manifest as everything in the world and, yet, the Tao was nothing and nowhere. Well, which is it, I thought, everywhere or nowhere?

The problem lies with the limitations placed on Western translators, as they are part of a cultural tradition which rarely teaches that there is an original state of unchanging, perfect beingness that lies behind even the Creator.

In the 6th Century BC, the sage Lao Tse (“Lay-OTE-say”) is said to have written the Tao Te Ching, which became fundamental to philosophical Taoism. The word Tao is usually interpreted as meaning The Way, although it can also mean The Principle or The Doctrine. However, none of these interpretations address its true nature.

Lao Tse was reluctant to even name the Tao, as giving it a name weakened its basic concept of silent unchangeability, so he actually preferred to refer to it as ‘the nameless.’

There are over 100 translations of the Tao Te Ching in English. One apt interpretation of the meaning of the title is, “The book of the way of Divine inner power.”

Translators to English find themselves forced beyond literal translation and into interpretation because characters written in the original Chinese often have multiple meanings and need to be distinguished in context with one other. Because of this, the original intent of the message may not even be immediately apparent.

For example, they face literal translations of sentences like this:

“Name named not eternal/unchanging name.”

It takes an understanding of the concept first before the meaning becomes clear. This passage points to the concept that the Tao is ‘the nameless’ which encompasses the universe, while the universe itself is filled with what Lao Tse often refers to as ‘the ten thousand things’ or the manifestations of the Tao. We give names to objects in the material world and that which is beyond all things is referred to as ‘the nameless.’

The Tao, by definition, existed before Heaven and Earth. It is said to be still, formless, standing alone and undergoing no change. It is both larger than the largest thing and it is within the smallest object.

The part that really trips Western translators up is the idea that the Tao is simultaneously perfectly still and yet constantly moving. Ideas like this are confusing enough to stop a logical mind, short-circuit some brain cells, and make smoke start to curl slowly up out of a person’s ears!

In Western culture, we generally lack an appreciation of the original nature of God as unchanging beingness. In our action-oriented culture, we think of the Creator as the One God. Typically, unless you studied Eastern philosophies or some branches of metaphysics, then you were never made aware of the state of beingness which is behind even the One Creator. The Tao is the unchanging, perfect consciousness which is behind all things. The Tao is pure, tranquil beingness, and it formed the Creator as the aspect of itself which would take action and experience change.

Taoism is not alone in studying the original, unchanging beingness behind all things. The same concept appears in Hinduism as the still, silent Brahman, or Godhead, behind the creative Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

Chapter 42 of the Tao Te Ching gives the Taoist version:

The Tao produced the One.
The One produced the Two.
The Two produced the Three.
The Three produced all things.

This means that the unchanging beingness produced the One Creator. This aspect then saw that it was necessary (using Genesis terminology) to divide the ‘waters’ of its consciousness into two aspects. These different and complementary aspects were the principles of thought and feeling. A third aspect was still needed, which was the principle of motion, which allowed the command, “Let there be light!” to create the original template of the universe. The three aspects of the triune nature of the Creator then worked in harmony to create the universe and all material within it.

Students of modern metaphysics are familiar with the concept of a beingness which is behind all things. It has been referred to as the Absolute, the Isness, the ‘I Am’ Presence, and ‘the All That Is which is behind all things.’ My own choice of words is Infinite Being. All of these terms refer to the same perfect, unchanging beingness which is behind everything.

The universe exists within the field of silent consciousness of Infinite Being, so its essence is within everything in the world. That silent Isness is the ground state of consciousness behind all life. Because of its silent, unmoving nature it could be referred to as being ‘nothing and nowhere,’ at least to our physical sense of awareness.

The Creator and its creation exist within Infinite Being. Therefore, Infinite Being is within all things. The unchanging is within everything in the changing world. Yet, our physical senses will never detect this underlying, unchanging oneness. It is only through developing an inner connection that we will discover that which is behind all things.

The Tao is manifest as everything and yet the Tao, in the world of material senses, appears to be nothing and nowhere. So, the message of the Tao Te Ching is to develop an inner connection with that which is real and then the manifest world – this world which is unreal in comparison – begins to make sense.

More About Spiritual Light

by Owen Waters

Last week’s article, The Healing Power of Spiritual Light, defined the natures of spiritual light and spiritual darkness.

It stated that spiritual darkness is the absence of spiritual light. Spiritual darkness itself is not real. It is merely an absence of something that is real. Evil is an illusion because a shadow is not a real thing. Light is the real thing. A shadow is really no more than an illusion caused by the absence of light.

This article raised two main questions. One was for clarification about which chakra light flows through in the second law of spiritual light. The other was to ask why people suffer at all.

The Laws of Spiritual Light, again, are:

1. The transformative ability of spiritual light is proportional to the frequency of the consciousness used to project it.

2. The amount of spiritual light projected is proportional to the degree of openness of the chakra through which it flows.

Spiritual light law number two refers to the chakra face which is in use at the time, and it depends upon the frequency of consciousness in use at the time. In my book, The Shift: the Revolution in Human Consciousness, I reveal the twelve faces of the seven major chakras.

Chakra faces are gateways of thought – thoughts that come into you from the global mind atmosphere and from you, back out into the global mind atmosphere. Your frequency of consciousness, at any moment in time, determines which chakra face will be used as the active gateway.

Basically, your chakra system is like a receiving and transmitting radio station, only with frequencies of consciousness. What you do with the consciousness as it flows through you, and is changed by you, is your contribution to the state of the global mind atmosphere.

Much of Western society today functions, on average, through the higher of the two solar plexus chakra faces. This is face number five, which is intellectual-active in function and expresses itself through physical achievement.

Heartfelt consciousness is face number six, the lower heart chakra face, which is holistic-receptive in nature and expresses through the consciousness of caring community. Heart-powered consciousness is the upper heart chakra face, which is holistic-active and expresses itself as a sense of responsible freedom.

Your frequency of consciousness can vary from minute to minute. If you are in a healthy state of unconditional love and acceptance, you are functioning in heart-centered consciousness. If you turn on today’s television news, however, you will soon be tempted to drop into polarity consciousness. While unconditional love is a function of unity and harmony, polarity consciousness – which was named after the opposite poles of a magnet – generates separation, tension and conflict.

Why People Suffer

We live in a world filled with many kinds of darkness, none of which would exist if people were already following their spiritual hearts instead of the illusion of separation.

This world of illusion is constructed so that people appear to be separate from each other. In reality, we are all one.

This world of illusion is constructed so that we reflect on our memories and plan for tomorrow. In reality, time is an illusion that is manufactured in order for dramas to play out. The only reality is now. Now is the only time you have the power to effect change.

This world of illusion is constructed so that people are orphaned from their spiritual source. In reality, we are that source, looking at the created universe from an infinite variety of perspectives.

The great treasure of life in a world of free will is that we eventually learn to stand on our own two feet as self-empowered sparks of that source from which we came.

Once upon a ‘time,’ before time existed, we volunteered to leave our spiritual home and descend into the acute focus which is provided by these dense realms of physicality. After we have worked through the illusions of this theater of life we will become self-empowered spiritual sparks, tempered in the fire of acute experience.

There is a tradition that says that it is hard to complete the cycle of continual rebirth on planet Earth. That idea came into being simply because the time was not yet ripe for The Shift.

The Cosmic Scale of The Shift

Today, the rules are changing. As The Shift unfolds, people are finding themselves faced with imminent transformation into the heart-centered reality that we call the New Reality. The Shift is not confined to planet Earth, nor even to our solar system. It is a transformation which is cosmic in scale. The ethers are alive with an ever-increasing pull which beckons humanity back towards the spiritual home from which we came.

In the cosmic scale of time, today’s phase of the New Reality will pass by in the mere blink of an eye. The New Reality, today’s emerging heart-centered consciousness, is a link to that which lies beyond. In this accelerated cosmic environment, humanity will spend mere centuries in passing through the current New Reality and completing our adventure in physical existence.

As we master heart-centered consciousness, our physical bodies will become lighter in density. We will work through the joy of reconnection with our spiritual source, eventually leaving physicality behind. The only mystery remaining will be why humanity took so long to reach that place of active harmony and joyful expression.

Then, we will return to our spiritual home, very different than before, and very much wiser than when we originally left.

The Healing Power of Spiritual Light

by Owen Waters

The Buddha spent many years trying to understand evil and suffering. He eventually concluded that the only real power in the universe is the all-pervasive consciousness of Source, as experienced by all masters who reach nirvana. The world of outer form is illusion in comparison and therefore has little or no power.

He then went on to counsel people to adopt the middle way in order to avoid being sucked into illusion and bringing suffering upon themselves. He saw attachment to things of the world as the source of suffering, so he advised people to be a part of the world, yet not attached to it.

Even though many of today’s teachers quietly ignore the nature of the ultimate state of nirvana, the words of the Buddha still ring as true today as they did 2,500 years ago. And yet… times have changed.

Today’s level of popular consciousness is far beyond that of the relatively dark times of 2,500 years ago. Today, detachment is still excellent advice, but now we can do so much more to consciously transform the old ways of darkness.

Physical darkness is the absence of physical light. The darkness itself is not real. It is merely an absence of something that is real. Likewise, spiritual darkness is the absence of spiritual light. Spiritual darkness itself is not real. It is merely an absence of something that is real.

Evil is an illusion because a shadow is not a real thing. Light is the real thing. A shadow is an illusion caused by the absence of light. The only reality, the only real power, is light itself.

Darkness can only exist in hiding from the light. When light shines in, it dissipates the darkness, making it obvious where the real power lies. Evil has no power in itself. It is only a lack of light. The real power is, and always has been, with the light and not with the shadow.

If you sense darkness, add light.

If you sense pain, add the light of healing energy.

If you sense hatred, add the light of love.

If you sense despair, add the light of hope and trust in the goodness of that source from which we came and that to which we are returning.

The Nature of Spiritual Light

Spiritual light, in its fundamental form, is the omnipresent consciousness of the Creator. When intertwined with the unconditional love of the Creator and set into motion, it manifests as the universe.

Filters can block spiritual light. Such filters include fear, hatred, judgment, conflict and despair. That which engenders any of these is, therefore, promoting darkness. Darkness in consciousness affects mind, body and spirit.

When spiritual light is channeled through the human mind, it adds to the light of the world. Darkness can be healed through the addition of spiritual light.

While spiritual light is universally available in all frequencies, it has to flow through human consciousness in order to affect the human realm of consciousness. The effectiveness of sending healing spiritual light into an area that needs it is subject to the following two laws.

The Laws of Spiritual Light

1. The transformative ability of spiritual light is proportional to the frequency of the consciousness used to project it.

Explanation: Conditioning the intent with any agenda lowers the frequency. Projecting pure spiritual light for the unconditioned purpose of healing humanity raises the frequency and the potential.

2. The amount of spiritual light projected is proportional to the degree of openness of the chakra through which it flows.

Explanation: Your thoughts flow from you to the outside world through the appropriate chakra. Spiritual practices develop the chakras, increasing your capability as a channel for spiritual light.

How to Love Yourself Unconditionally

by Owen Waters

If there is anything that you dislike about yourself – your body, your mind or your feelings – it is time to clear away that old baggage once and for all.

Tell yourself a totally positive thought, such as:

“I love everything about my body.”

Then, listen for the inner voice of self-criticism to step in and say things like, “except for my weight,” “except for my unmanageable hair,” and so on.

The point of the exercise is to identify opinions and beliefs that you hold at an unconscious level. Bring them up into your conscious mind where you can see them and, then, they can be addressed and healed using the power of Love. That’s Love with a big “L,” as in Unconditional Love.

Here’s how it’s done, using Unconditional Love:

First, you add a phrase onto the end of the criticism. That phrase is, “and I Love myself anyway.” So, if you hear your inner voice say, “except for my weight,” you add, “and I Love myself anyway” right on the end.

In the example of weight being the issue, here is the sequence of events:

1) You stated, “I love everything about my body.”
2) The thought, “except for my weight” came up, thereby revealing its existence.
3) You then respond, “and I Love myself anyway.”

Now, here’s where we come to the magic bit. By the power of Love you can transform and heal the limiting belief, “except for my weight.”

Imagine the thought, “and I Love myself anyway” as a small ball of mental energy and direct it into the energy center of your heart, which is outside of your body, just in front of your breastbone. Feel your heart energy bathing the phrase, “and I Love myself anyway” in its warmth as you mentally repeat it while focused on that energy center.

Then, repeat the positive statement, “I love everything about my body,” and, again, wait for the voice of the inner critic. You may find that the old belief has been dissolved on the first attempt. More likely, however, you will find that it has simply been lessened – that it comes with a less intense negative feeling.

Here’s the key to dissolving negative feelings: Repeat the process a few times and notice how the power of the negative feeling dissipates with each performance of this healing technique. Repeat until it becomes a non-issue.

Now, use this technique to heal other negative ideas. Use another totally positive statement, such as:

“I feel wonderful about myself.”

This will reveal negative emotions and self-criticisms of a nonphysical nature. Use unconditional love again:

Add, “and I Love myself anyway” onto the end of the first criticism that comes up.

Imagine that thought as a small ball of mental energy and direct it into the energy center of your heart, just in front of your breastbone. Feel your heart energy bathing the phrase, “and I Love myself anyway,” in its warmth.

Repeat this positive statement and keep repeating the technique until the criticism has faded into either silence or a non-active emotional state.

Fears are another kind of barrier to higher consciousness. Fear is the opposite of love. Love dissolves fear, just as fear can drive out love.

There is no fear that cannot be dissolved by the application of love energy.

To reveal hidden, inner fears, use the statement:

“I feel safe at all times and in all places.”

You may discover, or remember, that you have fears of water, of heights, of flying, all of which can be released with unconditional love.

Once you clear emotional blockages to unconditional love, you are ready to move ahead and glimpse the next adventure in higher consciousness: The deep, intuitive inspiration of soul consciousness.

How You Make the World a Better Place

by Owen Waters

One of the mysteries of quantum physics today is the fact that subatomic particles communicate with each other at speeds far greater than the speed of light. Apparently they weren’t listening to Einstein when he said that they’re not supposed to be able to do that.

This phenomenon came to light in 1982 at the University of Paris, where it was shown that related photons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart, they say. Somehow each particle always seems to instantly know what the other is doing.

Metaphysics – the science of energies beyond the physical – provides the answer because it recognizes the existence of mental energies. It also recognizes that all things are conscious, so let’s rephrase that 1982 experiment in metaphysical terms:

Two photons meet and, like two normal, healthy, conscious entities, they take a liking to each other. Even though one is sent off on a long journey and the other is kept close for observation, they stay in touch. After all, they are friends. When something happens to one, it promptly happens to the other as a sympathetic reaction. Now, because mental energy travels at millions of times the speed of light, their speed of communication is virtually instantaneous. And, yet another mystery is solved by modern metaphysics.

Mental energy is one of the nonphysical energies in Creation. It can be used as an umbrella term to include the energies of both rational thought and emotional feeling. The existence of mental energy in motion should come as no surprise because the universe was created by Original Thought and Original Feeling set into motion.

Every second of every day, your physical brain transmits and receives mental energy to and from the mental atmosphere which surrounds this planet. This globally-shared mind belt is the medium which enables discoveries and inventions to occur at the same time by people who are not in physical contact with each other. For example, the discovery of oxygen was made not by one researcher, but by three different ones in three different countries at the same time. Mathematical calculus was another example. It was created by Newton in England and Liebnitz in Germany at the same time, leading to years of entertaining rivalry.

Have you ever had an idea, then seen other people express or use that same idea? You probably said, “Hey! I thought of that first!” Well, that’s exactly how the mind belt works. It’s an atmosphere that you share with all other sentient beings, but you especially tune in to the topics and frequencies of mind that interest you the most.

Throughout your life, you contribute to the energies of the mind belt and do your part in making the world what it is today. As a spiritually-minded person, you uplift the mind belt because the frequency of heart-centered consciousness is a lot higher than the self-involved thoughts of the statistically average person across the face of the globe. At this point, you may wonder how spiritual people – a smaller portion of the current population – can do much good in a world affected by a lot of materialistic and depressive thinking. The answer may surprise you.

It’s almost as if the Creator stacked the cards in favor of spiritual evolution. As a spiritually-minded person, your higher-frequency thoughts have exponentially more power and influence than thoughts of a lower frequency. By definition, at least 80% of the population has an average effect upon the mind belt. You, however, have a frequency advantage which empowers your influence in the world far more than you may have realized.

Researcher David Hawkins spent years investigating the effects of the whole frequency range of human consciousness and came up with an amazing discovery. As a spiritually-aware person, the influence of your consciousness is equivalent to hundreds of thousands of statistically-average people! This surprising fact presents us with an incredible opportunity to help others and make a very positive difference in the world.

His actual figure was that a person’s consciousness at the entry level to spiritual awareness counter-balances and lifts up the effect of the thoughts of 800,000 people of average consciousness around the world! Imagine what happens when you go beyond the entry level and work every day on your own spiritual growth. Before you know it, you’re helping to uplift tens of millions of people and making the world a distinctly better place than it would have been without the benefit of your presence.

As you raise your consciousness, you contribute exponentially more to the spiritual quality of the global mind. Therefore, your greatest service to humanity is, paradoxically, focusing upon your own spiritual growth. This wonderful level of service to humanity occurs as a direct effect of your consciousness upon a world which has been starved, for so long, of spiritual thought and spiritual energy.

Meanwhile, as you develop ever-higher levels of consciousness, you become more attuned with the soul aspect of your awareness. Operating just above the heart-centered level of consciousness, your soul aspect has the freedom to see beyond the limitations of space and time.

Your soul, as the higher part of your mind, knows the exact details of your life plan and its current status. While your physical brain rests at night, your active awareness rises to this higher level in order to review your life on an ongoing basis.

The key to being on-target with your intended life path each day is to develop soul awareness as your intuitive support for the goals and challenges that you face in your physical life.

Make a decision to develop your spiritual growth on a daily basis. Choose a time for reflection and spiritual practices each and every day. Spend that time increasing your frequency of consciousness by engaging in meditation, spiritual study, energy work, reflection, and the use of sacred essential oils.

As you develop your spiritual knowledge and healing ability, you become able to spread the word of how others can empower their lives and achieve spiritual freedom. With a more developed sense of intuition, you soon learn how to make better choices based upon a growing sense of your innermost joy. Life becomes an inspired dream factory where your highest visions for a better world begin to manifest in the physical reality around you.

Spiritual Growth

by Owen Waters

Spiritual growth is the growing awareness of a higher level of consciousness.

A higher level of consciousness brings an expanded view of reality.

The more your view of reality expands, the more you are able to integrate any conflicting issues within yourself.

Why It Matters Today

Spiritual growth has become such an urgent issue today because the frequency of everyone’s consciousness is rising. People may not be aware that they are growing. They may resist it. They may be in denial that today’s great changes affect them. Nevertheless, these are the days of great change, an era called the Shift.

The Shift is a steady rise in consciousness which affects the entire planet. It is similar to the cultural shift of the Renaissance, only amplified several times over. The Renaissance was merely a practice run for today’s transformation.

The Shift into higher consciousness is propelling today’s search for spirituality and meaning in life. Spiritual growth involves gaining a deeper sense of inner awareness. Deeper awareness ranges from light meditation to a complete and blissful union with your true, inner self.

Exposure to the deeper states of meditation have the long-term effect of raising your everyday level of awareness. The higher the frequency of your consciousness, the more likely you are to see the synchronicity of events in your life and gain intuitive insights into these.

The universal theme playing out on Earth today is shifting from one of separation to one of integration. Integration means learning how to love and accept yourself, and others, completely and unconditionally.

Deeper awareness opens the door to an inner sense of the connectedness of all life. You begin to see other people as different expressions of the same Infinite Being. Not better than, not less than, just different than yourself. In the deeper awareness of spiritual growth, the universe is seen to be within, not something separate and outside of yourself.

Inner integration is a process that causes issues of separation to arise so that they can be resolved. In society today, issues are coming up so rapidly that society appears to be in turmoil or chaos. This turmoil is actually a great society-wide healing, with issues becoming resolved one after another.

People are becoming more sensitive in many ways as the frequency of consciousness rises. The search for lighter diets is just one manifestation of this new lightness of being.

The physical senses are becoming more acute. An example of this is people’s sensitivity to the smell of cigarette smoke in work places and restaurants. Back in the 1970s, people smoked everywhere and very few noticed any discomfort from it. By the 1990s, however, the majority of people’s sensitivity had changed so much that they couldn’t wait to get smoking banned from indoor gathering places.

With the rise in consciousness comes a rise in personal empowerment. People are no longer willing to tolerate abuse or inequality in any form. Many forms of abuse which were traditionally ignored and tolerated have now come out into the public view for examination and reform.

David: Icon of the Renaissance

The Renaissance movement was inspired by the icon of Michelangelo’s statue of David. The statue portrays David, strong-willed and ready, at the moment that he decides to engage the threat posed by Goliath. This icon of personal empowerment resonated with the cultural shift of the time. People wanted to explore their potential, taking personal initiative in their lives.

Before this, they had seen life as a sequence of events caused by a pre-ordained destiny. Up until that time, people had resigned themselves to a flow of events which they saw as being outside of their control.

When people shifted towards the attitude that they might also be pre-ordained to take some personal initiative, everything began to shift. The floodgates of possibility opened up as people began to explore their true potential.

In that same era, people on Earth still thought that their planet was the center of the universe. The Sun was seen as orbiting around the Earth, and the stars were merely a decorative backdrop in the Creator’s sky.

Today, it is known that the universe measures billions of light years across, contains countless billions of galaxies, with each galaxy typically containing billions of suns. The number of planets in the universe is so large that it makes such an expanded view of reality almost impossible to grasp.

When you consider that all of those trillions of planets were created by one Creator, there is an obvious need for today’s concept of God to expand to fill the new reality. Faced with such a massively expanded view of the universe, how are people supposed to grasp the concept of such a huge Creator in a way that makes sense today?

What would David have done? As he faced the looming Philistine giant Goliath and readied his slingshot, to whom did he pray? Did he invoke the power of an external God for his protection? Possibly, but not likely. As portrayed in the Michelangelo statue, his face was set, but not with a need for protection. It was set in a defiance born of inner strength and determination.

The Power Is Within You

Everyone possesses such inner strength. That same source of incredible personal power is available within everyone, and the source is your inner self. Often referred to as the soul, your inner self is the permanent part of you. While the physical body can pass away from the physical world, and later the spirit body can pass away from the spirit world, your inner self is the real, permanent you.

It is the part of you that is permanently joined with your soul family in vibrant love and harmony. The more you contact your inner self through meditation, the more you can tune into this source of strength, love and harmony.

People’s connection to the Infinite Being always has been through their soul, or inner self.

Inner contact through meditation is the most peaceful, and the most productive, part of any day. Everyone deserves quality time. When quality time becomes the first priority of the day, then meditation will happen regularly and the benefits will automatically be yours.

Put meditation at the top of your To Do list for each day and watch your spiritual growth unfold.

Transcendent Beingness

by Owen Waters

Releasing old, limiting beliefs can set you free to explore higher states of mind and greater states of abundance. We are here on earth to expand our minds – to literally make our fields of consciousness bigger. Your brain might have a fixed size but your mind is free to rise in frequency and grow to the sky!

There are distinct stages of conscious evolution, progressive steps that have been studied and categorized by social scientists and psychologists. For example, Abraham Maslow (1908-70) was a psychologist who became well known for his Hierarchy of Human Needs.

When he developed his theory in the 1950s, he predicted the transformation of humanity into a realm of spiritual transcendence, but he had no idea just how soon this would develop into a major movement. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs shows that basic human needs have to be fulfilled before people can attend to higher needs and values.

First, the basic physiological needs of food and shelter must be catered for in order to ensure survival.

Next, once food and shelter are obtained, safety and security must be achieved.

Then, acceptance by others is sought, in both the societal and personal senses. To fulfill this belonging need, people become part of a group, a tribe, an extended family, or a community.

When these deficiency-related needs are satisfied, then the individual works to acquire self-respect. Recognition by others produces self-esteem.

Once the outer needs are fulfilled, the inner-directed need for self-actualization comes into play. To self-actualize means to become the best you personally can be. Self-actualized people include those who have achieved material abundance, but also those who, as a decision of personal power, have chosen simplicity over the pursuit of further abundance. At some point, when a person says “That’s enough” to the endless pursuit of additional financial security, then they become free to accomplish anything that most inspires their inner joy.

Self-actualization is achieved after the individual ceases to have deference to hierarchical authority, and instead matures into the ability to make their own rules of personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is always more powerful and effective than any system of imposed rules. For example, you can threaten to punish someone if they steal and hope that the threat works. But, a self-responsible person simply wouldn’t steal because they would feel empathy for the loss that a would-be victim would feel. They simply wouldn’t have the heart to do such a thing to another person.

It’s a matter of increased maturity. When a person abandons the pressure of impositions from external authority and becomes their own, self-directed authority, then they become far more functional in the world. This is, in fact, a higher state of consciousness, one which provides a higher vista of awareness. From this expanded vista, they see clearly how they as an individual can best serve humanity.

In this state of awareness, the person acquires the ability to think and analyze situations independently. As a result, new and creative solutions spring to mind. They have enough self-esteem to be able to clearly see their own needs, skills, strengths and weaknesses, and from that they see where they can best be of service to humanity.

Self-actualization is the instinctual need of a human to make the most of their unique abilities. Once outer-focused, basic needs are fulfilled, it arises as the next value to require attention and it relates to being rather than having.

Above self-actualization, Maslow placed transcendence, which he considered a spiritual value. Traditional universities tend to avoid anything truly inspiring, so they present the Maslow Hierarchy of Human Needs differently. They present it with self-actualization as the ultimate human aim, and omit the transcendence stage beyond that.

The being-values of self-actualization and transcendence are the higher, more beautiful aspects of human consciousness. They include unconditional love, altruism, inner joy, a love of nature, the development of intuition (in males as well as females), idealism, and a sense of wisdom which springs from within. These skills develop the right-brain functions of creativity and intuition.

According to Maslow, self-actualizing people share an appreciation for the positive human qualities like truth, artistic beauty, honesty, benevolence, wholeness, simplicity, individuality, fairness, self-sufficiency, and joy-filled playfulness.

In the 1950s, Maslow believed that only 2% of the population had achieved self-actualization. The mid-1960s changed all that when masses of people began the search for the higher values, such as unconditional love and spiritual wisdom. Today, that core group of progressive people has blossomed from 2% to well over 20%, and is climbing every year.

The Shift* is not a temporary by-product of the Baby Boom generation, or any other generation of modern culture. It is not a passing fad. It is not going away. It is a cosmic pressure that is unfolding and relentlessly increasing the frequency of all consciousness upon the planet.

When you enhance your life with regular spiritual practice, you become better able to attune with your soul consciousness. As this progresses, your sense of reasoning merges with your higher intuitive ability to become Intuitive Reason.

To foster the higher levels of consciousness is to grow your mind and therefore the ability to more easily manifest joyful abundance in all aspects of your life.

Connect With Your Deepest Essence

by Owen Waters

Infinite Being is the ground state of consciousness behind all things. It does not move. It does not change. It just is.

It is the awareness behind all things. When you become aware that you are aware, that is the silent essence of Infinite Being within you.

Your normal state of consciousness is in constant motion as you experience life in all its ever-changing forms. However, behind that consciousness-in-motion is the ground state of unmoving, singular awareness.

Infinite Being is that which is beyond all things. It is the state of pure beingness which is beyond all manifestation. It is the silent, unchanging consciousness which is behind all of Creation. It always existed and it always will exist. It is complete within itself. It is infinity in every sense of the word.

Infinite Being is the ‘I Am’ consciousness within you. It has also been called the Absolute, the All That Is, the Godhead, Brahman, the Isness, and the Tao.

Because of its unmoving, pure beingness, some people have been tempted to call it a state of non-being. However, non-being is one of those impossibilities of existence. Everything is conscious, even the tranquil, unruffled state of pure beingness which exists behind all things.

Another impossibility is for you to ever cease to exist. You are; you exist as a unique perspective of Infinite Being. You will never cease to exist. The essence of you is immortal. In the physical world, you come and go, choosing different incarnations in order to experience the variety that human life has to offer. In between those incarnations, you live in the spirit world while you make sense of all you learned in the latest incarnation. Then, at a soul level, you plan your next adventure into physicality.

On your journey back home to the All That Is, you will always be you. Your consciousness will grow continually along the way until it eventually expands to fill all things and you will once again be back home. You will be back where you started out on your journey into experience.

Infinite Being is the original consciousness behind even the One Creator of all life. Infinite Being formed an aspect of itself which stirred from the silence into action, thereby creating the Creator of all life. Infinite Being decided to express a Creator aspect of itself so that the Creator could decide how to explore all of itself and all possibilities of itself in order to see itself from infinite viewpoints. The One Creator then decided how to manifest the universe and all that is within it.

The terminology used to describe this perfect awareness is simply, ‘Infinite Being.’ It would be less than accurate to say, for example, AN Infinite Being or even THE Infinite Being, as such expressions would suggest that there may be something outside of this one, all-present state of perfect, complete and eternal beingness.

When you become aware that you are aware, you contact the ground state of consciousness within yourself. There is nothing more balancing than to anchor your ever-moving thoughts and feelings to the ultimate state of personal peace – the unchanging, ever-aware, all-present state of Infinite Being. Because it is ever-present in all things, you only have to focus upon it in order to find that one anchor which never moves in an ever-moving world.

On our website, there is a complete how-to article called the Infinite Being Meditation. It employs the most powerful affirmation possible in the English language, namely “I Am Infinite Being.” This affirmation of the “I Am” awareness within you and your conscious alignment with the ultimate state of Infinite Being takes on an even deeper meaning when you appreciate the powerful silence of that ground state of all consciousness.

When you practice the Infinite Being Meditation, simply be aware that you are aware and you will better connect with your deepest essence. When you really become aware of that still, silent awareness within you – that state of Lucid Being – you will be in a place that few have found; but a place for which most people yearn.

The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness

by Owen Waters

Love is the saving grace of all of humanity. We contact this primal energy in our finest moments. From the moment a baby is born, it is enshrouded in the unselfish love of its mother. From the moment a person springs into action to save others from peril, their own thoughts of survival are ‘overlighted’ by the love and caring that shines from their heart.

When a person dies and reviews their life, they see that one thing that mattered the most: Love. Pure, unadulterated, unconditional love. It is the source of compassion. It is the energy of caring for others. It is the binding force which holds together the entire universe, and it flows through you whenever you simply allow it.

Love is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. It is through activation of the spiritual heart that we pass into a whole new world of expansion and joy. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we find peace, bliss, and continual inspiration. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we expand our view of life to see the issues that are important to the soul. We can then see how love can heal and how we can and should spend the time to spread a little more love in the world every day, even if it is simply done in silent prayer for the well-being of others.

Let your heart open to love each and every day. Start the day in meditation and prayer for the healing and well-being of others and you will invoke a beautiful flow of natural energy through yourself. It truly is a great way to start each day because it sets the tone and the energy flow for the day.

When you are attuned to the natural flow of love throughout the universe, you then feel the natural flow of energy within your own universe. Your senses of insight and timing develop to help you achieve more and to succeed easily at the tasks that are important to you.

The flow of love is critical to life. Without the love of the Divine Mother which fills the universe, nothing would exist. For centuries, humankind has been playing a game where love and inner inspiration have been blocked off and ignored. Today, in this era of The Shift, the tide is turning and people are opening up to this wonderful flow of natural energy.

Remember the love within, especially when outer circumstances seem dark. Remember that love is the gateway to the higher realms of consciousness where answers can be found to meet every challenge that life presents.

Tune into love. It will never let you down. Instead, it will set your spirit free to explore the realms of consciousness which offer greater vistas of awareness, greater peace of mind, and a sense of ever-present joy.

The Secret of Effortless Action

by Owen Waters

The ancient philosopher, LaoTse (“Lay-OTE-say”) gave teachings which were designed to confuse the conscious mind. The idea was that, when the conscious mind tires and gets out of the way, the seeker could discover the deeper truths within.

He is credited with the 2,500 year-old work, the Tao Te Ching, which is full of apparent contradictions or paradoxes. For example, he refers to the Tao (the “Dow”) as that which is everything and yet nothing. What he means is that the Tao – the Absolute, the Isness, or Infinite Being – is the transcendent consciousness which is behind all manifestation. It is not the active manifestation of the created universe, but the original consciousness behind it. It is that which, in silence and unchanging perfection, always was and always will be. And yet, so the paradox goes, all of manifestation came from it (via the Creator aspect that Infinite Being formed of Itself) and therefore is it. The silent consciousness of Infinite Being is the fundamental awareness that pervades all of Creation.

Similarly, he uses paradox to promote the philosophy of Wu Wei (“Woo Way”) as the way of “action without action.” Sounds impossible? That’s the point. He wanted people to give up making logical sense of the idea and, instead, go within to find the truth behind the paradox.

The principle of Wu Wei really means effortless action. The secret to achieving effortless action is to realize that there is a natural flow of influences at work in all parts of the universe. You sense the natural flow of the moment and act within that flow. If the moment is not right for a certain type of action, then the attuned person delays the task. When they sense that the right moment has arrived, then they act and easily accomplish the task.

It can also mean not forcing a situation to be what it isn’t. If a situation comes about which is beyond your control, then making the best of it is often the elegant solution.

The saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” is attributed to the 14th Century Scottish king, Robert the Bruce. According to legend, he once took refuge in a cave, where he watched a spider trying to spin a web. It failed several times to make a connection from one area of the cave’s roof to another, but each time it started all over again until it finally succeeded. People today take that saying to mean that, if something doesn’t work, you need to be obstinate and keep trying harder until you overcome all obstacles and eventually make it happen by sheer force of will.

The Wu Wei approach to life is quite the opposite. It suggests that, if at first you don’t succeed, there is a reason for it. It means that you are not acting with the natural flow of energy within that place and time and it may also mean that you need to discover a more suitable solution.

First, take a deep breath, relax and step back from the situation. After that, you’ll be able to judge it objectively and in a state of balance. Then:

A) Decide if you’re trying to force something into existence that shouldn’t be, or

B) Look for a better solution to achieve your objective, and/or

C) Wait for your innate sense of timing to feel right.

One of the benefits of the spiritual consciousness which is emerging in the New Reality is the ability to sense the natural flow of universal influences and know when the time is right for certain types of action.

The New View of God

by Owen Waters

When I was a child in Sunday School classes, I was taught to view God as someone very personal. We were given an image of a human-like God who personally watched over each and every one of us.

That was long before the Hubble Space Telescope started to show us how incredibly huge the universe is. In the decades since, our appreciation of the size of the universe has increased enormously. Likewise, our view of the size of God has increased enormously.

Today, we realize that God, as an omnipresent being, must be at least the size of the entire universe. By current estimates, the universe contains over a hundred billion galaxies, each one containing an estimated two hundred billion suns. That means that there are countless trillions of planets, each one filled with the all-pervasive presence of that which created them. This brings us to today’s prevalent spiritual dilemma.

With God’s presence being so far-reaching, how can there be any semblance of the personal attention that we were taught to expect from a father-like God image? Today, you are left wondering whether God is, (a) personal, or (b) so large in scale as to be infinitely impersonal. Surely, one idea would exclude the other.

Or would it? A paradox is something that contains opposite statements and yet both are true. The secret to solving paradoxes is to start using the word ‘and’ instead of ‘or.’ The question is not whether God is infinitely large or personal. The question becomes, how can God be infinite in size and personal as well?

The answer lies within the Paradox of Infinite Being. The term Infinite Being is used here as the ultimate concept of God. The word Infinite, as in omnipresent. The word Being, as in omniscient awareness. Infinite Being is the perfect, unchanging consciousness behind all of Creation.

Because Infinite Being is consciousness, and nothing but consciousness, it is appropriate to note here that nothing in Creation is anything but consciousness in one form or another. Energy is simply a compressed form of consciousness set into motion. Matter is energy. Therefore matter is a form of consciousness. It can’t be any other way, because consciousness is the only tool with which Infinite Being has to work. We are a dream within the mind of the Creator. The universe was created within the consciousness of Infinite Being.

I remember being told in a science class at school that space must be infinite in size because there couldn’t be anything beyond the end of space; therefore, it had to go on forever. It didn’t sound right at the time, and now I know why. Space is actually finite, because it was created within Infinite Being. The created must be less than its creator in size, therefore space must be less than infinite in size. Beyond the envelope of space lies that which created it.

In order to create the universe, Infinite Being divided the ‘waters’ – its consciousness – into two aspects: Creator and Preserver. In the West, we are used to thinking of the Creator as God the Father, while the Preserver aspect is called the Holy Spirit. In the East, the names are different but the principles are exactly the same. For example, the Hindu name for the Creator aspect is Brahma, while Vishnu represents the aspect that preserves and sustains the universe. Stories of Creation from all over the world share the common thread of two complementary aspects coming together to bring light into existence.

The two aspects of Creator and Preserver were set into complementary motion in order to manifest the universe. Through the interaction of these two aspects of original consciousness, the universe was formed and, along with it, the capability for Infinite Being to view itself from an infinite number of viewpoints.

The human race today represents approximately seven billion different viewpoints of the one Source. According to the rules of the human adventure, we were born with spiritual amnesia. We have forgotten our inner connection. The challenge of the game is to discover and consciously reconnect with that to which, in reality, we are and always were connected. Self-awareness and free will are included in the rules of the game. The illusion of separateness from each other is created by an intense focus upon life in an outer, physical world, as viewed by the five senses. People are free to choose to interact with other people in the ways that they see best.

People can even choose to believe that they are separate from that ultimate Source to which they are connected. Atheism, therefore, is not a lack of belief. It’s a belief in something that isn’t so. If you have an inbuilt connection to God, yet believe that you don’t, you are expressing a belief, not a lack of one.

Mystics and Masters talk of experiencing a sense of oneness with the infinite while in deep meditation. Those who can go still deeper into the realms of consciousness report that there is more to it than just a feeling of oneness. Deep within, you aren’t so much an individual who is as one with Infinite Being. You are Infinite Being!

You are Infinite Being, observing itself through the one viewpoint that is you. You aren’t a part of Infinite Being. You are Infinite Being, acting from one specific point of view. Likewise, every sentient being is also Infinite Being, looking at itself from their own unique points of view.

The solution to the Paradox of Infinite Being is that, while we are a part of an immense universe of almost unlimited proportions, we are also Infinite Being itself. As you experience life through your eyes and ears and senses, you are Infinite Being, acting through yet another viewpoint of the infinite variety of life. Every fiber of your body is Infinite Being, every dream that you manifest is Infinite Being in action, every tear of joy that you shed in the finer experiences of life is a tear shed by Infinite Being in its form as you.

You can be closer to God than ever before when you realize that every part of your body, mind and spirit is God. Even in this strange world where we appear to be separate from everyone else, the conscious awareness of the presence of God is a mere thought away.

The Deepest Secret on Earth

by Owen Waters

I once knew a Master of Kundalini Yoga who was a spiritual seeker of great determination. He had studied Eastern esoterica since his early years, fully mastered Kundalini Yoga, and spent countless hours in the ultimate state that anyone can reach while living in a physical body; that of cosmic consciousness.

On the lecture platform, he revealed a clarity of thought and a depth of knowledge that I always found inspirational. Like many genuine masters, he was more interested in teaching powerful truths to help people advance spiritually than in sugar-coating his words to gain popularity.

After he passed on in the late 1990s, he moved beyond the spirit realms, through the higher mental realms, and into the realms of ascended masters, where he now resides among colleagues. Then, to my surprise, ten years after his passing, he came to visit me! He must have sensed that my thoughts were focused on him and, at the same time, upon the ultimate mystery in life.

I had been remembering how he used to say that no-one on Earth had the answer to the ultimate mystery in life. No-one, he said, not even the most accomplished mystics in India, had found the answer to WHY life had begun.

The great mystery was that, if the consciousness we call God had been perfection in the first place, then why did God create the universe so that living beings could work their way back to a perfection which already existed? Why start out on a journey that will bring you back to where you already are? This was the deepest of all mysteries since time began.

He was an intrepid pioneer in searching out the answers to spiritual mysteries, so I should have known that he would see the ultimate mystery as the ultimate challenge. I learned that he had used his new location in the ascended realms as a launching pad to go far beyond; to go where no-one on Earth had gone before. And, he had returned with the answer!

I don’t know if I was the first one in the physical world that he has told the answer to, but I’m sure I won’t be the last. The days of mysteries being kept secret are fading rapidly. In the New Reality, knowledge is meant to travel far and wide, and to empower everyone who is ready. He used to say, himself, that, in these days, the secrets are out and available to everyone.

My e-book, “Discover Your Purpose in Life,” will not only show you how to discover the purpose of your inner being and your own destiny, it will take you on a voyage of inner discovery. On this journey, you will pass through the layers of what used to be unsolved mysteries. At each step, we will go deeper still, always using the question “why” to go deeper still, until we reach the final layer and discover the answer to the ultimate mystery in life.

Just imagine what it will be like to wake up every morning and know that you hold the key to the very reason for life itself. Not just to your own purpose, but the master key to the very reason for the existence of the universe!

When you gain this profound depth of understanding, imagine the sense of purpose and destiny that will be yours each and every day!

Discover your own unique purpose in life now. See how it fits in perfectly with the natural flow of the universe and even with the original reason for life itself. Your journey of discovery is waiting.

Etheric Light Energy

by Owen Waters

When we talk of sending light out into the world, we are referring to a subtle energy, empowered and conditioned by spiritual intent.

Etheric energy is life energy. It is the energy that passes from spiritual healer to patient. It is the vitality or life force contained within air, water and food. It is the mystery energy which powers the endless orbit of electrons in their atoms and planets around their suns. More subtle than electricity, etheric energy is the life force that streams toward us from the Sun, energizing and motivating all forms of life.

Etheric energy has been known by many other names – prana, life energy, vital life force, chi or qi, orgone, universal life force, odic force, cold electricity, scalar energy, tachyon energy, radiant energy; the list goes on.

Cosmologists – scientists who study the structure of the universe – are actually on the trail of etheric energy. They have detected its presence in the cosmos through its gravitational side-effects, but they haven’t been able to see it, so they call it ‘dark energy.’ The existence of dark energy – and its related dark matter – is one of the great, unanswered mysteries of science today. According to the observed movements of galaxies, it is calculated that 23% of the universe consists of dark matter and 73% of the universe consists of dark energy.

The universe, it would seem, is filled with unseens. At least, to the limited capabilities of physical eyes. When a cosmologist stares at a clear, night sky, wondering where all the missing energy and matter is in the inky blackness of the depths of space, it would come as a surprise to them if they knew that a clairvoyant – a person who has developed the ability to see subtle energies – sees the same night sky very differently.

It may sound unconventional, even rebellious to tradition, to suggest that a scientist should ask a clairvoyant what they perceive, but it has been done before, and with breakthrough results. For example, in the mid 1800s, one of the top research scientists of all time did exactly this. Carl von Reichenbach had heard that clairvoyants can see a subtle energy of which science was unaware. The fact that he, like most people, lacked clairvoyant vision did not deter him. Such a minor complication was not to be an obstacle to his curiosity and his desire to understand this new form of energy.

Carl von Reichenbach

So, for his experiments, he hired a group of skilled clairvoyants to describe to him what they could see. He cataloged the appearance and behavior of etheric energy, which he called the ‘odic force,’ around substances such as magnets, crystals, wood and metals.

Today, a cosmologist could, if they dared to be that adventurous, ask a skilled clairvoyant what they see in the clear, night sky. The clairvoyant would report that they see the etheric energies that surge through the universe. To their subtle perception, etheric energy does not appear in the least bit dark. In fact, it glows brightly with the light of its own life energy. To them, the night sky is filled with a brilliant interplay of pure and magical, etheric light.

Etheric energy is one of the three fundamental types of energy in the universe. These three energies are electric, magnetic and etheric. Electric energy operates at a right angle to magnetic energy. The third energy of Creation, etheric energy, operates at yet another right angle to the other two.

Physical matter is made from electro-magnetism, which is the interplay of electric and magnetic energies. Etheric matter is quasi-physical, i.e. solid only to the subtle senses, and it is made from ethero-magnetism, which is the interplay of etheric and magnetic energies.

Etheric energy and etheric matter are the missing components in today’s cosmology. Etheric energy is the mysterious ‘dark energy’ and etheric matter is the mysterious ‘dark matter.’ Knowing that it can be seen by the subtle senses certainly makes it a more immediate candidate for study and research.

The possibilities for research into this fledgling field are almost unlimited. For example, many of Nikola Tesla’s experiments involved a strange new form of energy that he called “cold electricity.” When his experiments are reviewed in the light that cold electricity is none other than etheric energy, then they begin to make a lot more sense.

Etheric energy is the third energy of Creation. It is not a form of electricity. Etheric energy and electric energy share the common bond of interacting with magnetic energy. They bring to life the magnetic fabric of space when they intertwine with it to invoke physical electro-magnetic energy and quasi-physical ethero-magnetic energy.

To those in the ancient healing traditions, etheric energy is the life force of acupuncture, qigong, Reiki, and other forms of life-supporting practices. To the lightworker today, it is the medium through which we can transform ourselves and heal the world using the Love and Light Technique.

The Nature of Mother Nature

by Owen Waters

Within Creation, there are Twelve density layers of consciousness, from the subtle and divine Level 12 all the way down to the highly compressed Level 1 where subatomic particles are based.

There is a hierarchy of divine oversight within all density layers of Creation. Not to be confused with human hierarchies and their self-serving designs, the Divine Hierarchy exists to serve all life.

The Sun, for example, provides life energy to the entire solar system, never asking for anything in return.

To put the enormous scale of divine presence into perspective, as the universe was created within the mind of the Creator that means that God is larger than the entire universe!

In order to make the universe functional, three principles of consciousness were employed – expansive intention, nurturing attraction, and, to blend these synergistically together to create life energy, the principle of motion.

The twelve density layers are described in our Stairway to Heaven article, which begins with the most dense level and works its way up through the human and cosmic levels to the divine levels.

The root consciousness of planets such as Mother Earth is based in the Seventh Density layer of Creation. Considering that physical humans currently exist in the Third Density layer, she is much closer than us to the one Creator, so it was always appropriate to consider the Mother Earth as a goddess upon the scale of the evolution of consciousness.

Here in the human realm Third Density, the physical manifestations of Mother Nature are easy to see by anyone who pauses from an often frantic rush through life to appreciate such beauty.

It is by quietly looking at the appearance of a scene of nature, that our consciousness becomes engaged with the subtle and beautiful consciousness of that which supports the manifestation of all life.

You can go deeper than simple appreciation and make a conscious effort to communicate with Mother Nature and her many facets of expression.

Each tree and each flower is supported by a nature spirit or “deva.” Above a group of trees in consciousness will be an overlighting deva to which all the individual devas connect. You can send your love to the main deva. Better yet, follow that connection up with a question. They will be delighted that a human has taken the time to recognize their existence and will respond with an answer to the best of their ability.

Try to avoid sadness in such encounters, such as sadness for conditions that are damaging to the trees. Unlike humans, devas are firmly connected to the divine and are filled with a constant supply of divine joy. So, forget sadness and regrets and be prepared to enjoy the uplifting feeling that contact with nature spirits easily brings.

Author’s note

I was inspired to write this article after reading a book called The Elves of Lily Hill Farm by Penny Kelly.

Description: The Elves of Lily Hill Farm is the true story of Penny Kelly’s meeting with a group of elves and the deal she makes with them to produce one-hundred tons of grapes from a mere thirteen acres of vineyards–without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. As a result of their deal, Penny inadvertently enters the private world of plants, insects, animals, devas, and nature spirits where communication among them is common but the rules are all different. As the elves teach her a series of intense and powerful lessons, an amazing drama emerges between people and nature, both struggling to survive in a world where communication between them has been lost.

Highly recommended!

The Spiritualize Technique

by Owen Waters and Dreama Vance

Spiritualize your life and transform any challenge you face with this simple yet incredibly powerful technique!

The Spiritualize technique transforms your life into a happier, more healthful, and more inspired reality. This article explains the entire technique so that you can begin using it right away but, first, let’s examine the spiritual secrets behind this powerful technique.

You are about to be given ways of reaching higher consciousness which are so effective that, for centuries, they were suppressed and driven underground. Today, as we experience a world of rapid change and a planetary shift to higher consciousness, the secrets are out. They are available right now, without any barrier blocking your way, and they are ready to help you transform your life for the better. This is a spiritual development technique that will act as an anchor of stability and inspiration in the fast-changing 21st century.

The question is, are you ready for the transformational power of the Spiritualize technique? The one barrier that could still prevent you from gaining such spiritual growth is the one that you can erect yourself. Can you believe the truth about the enormous spiritual power that resides within you? The truth is, we ALL have that power within us.

The deeper our sciences probe into the nature of physical matter, the more apparent it becomes that everything in this world is connected to everything else. To outward appearances, we have individual identity and appear to be separate from each other but, in reality, we are connected to all matter and to all people. This is because every person is a unique facet of the same all-pervasive intelligence. You are not connected to God or the “All That Is” like an add-on module, you are God in expression because everything in existence is an expression of the mind of God. We have different viewpoints of reality but we are all representations of the One, the Divine, or the great Presence that exists within all things.

Your mind may need time to get used to the true nature of the Divinity within you, but that alone is no barrier to success. Practice the Spiritualize technique regardless of any temporary doubt you may harbor. Just do it regardless. Let it work for you and you will experience its transformative power. As that happens, any doubt will evaporate in the light of experience and you will have the most powerful tool ever for transforming your life into a happier, more healthful, and more inspired reality.

When you enter a sufficiently higher state of consciousness, life’s challenges become transformed.

Problem situations can become solved through the correct practice of this technique in one of two ways: Either by being energetically healed and transformed or by an inspired solution becoming apparent.

The primary purpose of the Spiritualize technique is to give you a way to anchor your mind to the reality within at any time of the day. By attuning with your Divine connection, you rise above the turmoil and illusion of events in the outside world. True reality is within the higher part of you. The more you connect with your higher consciousness, the more inspired and successful your life becomes. The main purpose of human life is spiritual growth. This is how you can make your spiritual growth happen each and every day.

Principles of the Spiritualize Technique

1) You are one with God. You are an individualized aspect of the consciousness of the Creator charged with the mission of experiencing life from one unique point of view. By consciously aligning yourself with the Divine Presence behind all things, you invoke its transformative power.

2) The universe is completely benevolent. God is good. Any appearance of evil in this world is caused by a lack of spiritual light, just as shadow or coldness is caused by a lack of physical light. All beings are inherently drawn to finding their inner light and everyone succeeds in this, their primary motivation, sooner or later. By consciously realizing the goodness of God, we open our eyes and see the light. The appearance of any darkness then disappears.

3) Action creates results. Transformation occurs when you raise your consciousness sufficiently. When you elevate yourself into a state of higher consciousness through this technique, your situation becomes transformed by the goodness and harmony of God’s universal energies. The key point to realize is that the responsibility for action begins with you as the physical anchor within any situation. When you align yourself sufficiently with the presence of God and the benevolent nature of all Creation, all things in your life can transform and become healed. It is the realization of your oneness with the Divine and the realization of the goodness of God that acts as a transformative power within your reality.

The Spiritualize Technique –
Quick, Simple, Powerful

The Spiritualize technique contains powerful principles which help you to connect easily and quickly with the transformative power of the Divine Presence. Once you are thoroughly familiar with the technique and have used it many times, you will find it becomes a part of you.

First, detach from any thoughts of problems that need attention. Your higher consciousness is fully aware of all of your situation. Any conscious attachment to needs will hold your mind down in the physical world, so detach completely from all concerns for the duration of this practice.

Focus on your breathing while your body relaxes and your mind settles into a reflective state. Then, take three heart-breaths as follows: On each inbreath, visualize spiritual energy as an intense white light coming from the Sun, all the way through space and then filling your brain. On each outbreath, transfer that energy down the spine to the level of the heart, then send it out the front of your body into your heart chakra, which is a vortex of energy located approximately four inches (ten centimeters) in front of the breastbone.

Your heart chakra is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. You connect to the God space through your heart space.

Then, silently make these declarations:

I am in God.
God is in me.
God and I are one.

Note: This is the use of the word “God” in its deepest sense. It refers to Infinite Being, the awareness behind the conscious universe. If you would prefer another term to God, the possibilities include the Universe, Source, Brahman, Tao, and the Absolute.

For a moment, think about these statements and what the realization of Oneness means to you. Feel the closeness of the Presence of God with every breath you take and every beat of your heart. Feel the Presence right there with you as a living reality. Continue to focus on the breath in order to reach the necessary state of peace and deep relaxation. Notice how the breath brings a state of peace and serenity. Once you have reached this peaceful state, you no longer focus on the breath. Stop thinking and listen.

Adopt a state of attentive silence. Be receptive to the still, silent voice of inner awareness. It is important to be mentally still and allow the sense of the Divine Presence. Once you start actively thinking again, the experience is over. Mental chatter stops the process, so be attentive and adopt a state of expectancy. The secret is in the stillness.

At first, you may not hear anything, but you will experience, if only through a deep breath or inner sigh, the Presence. It is the moment of connection that is important. Then you have completed the purpose of that session.

You may receive information and insights during the process or they may come later. As you practice, you develop your ability to “hear”. Some people receive impressions as mental pictures, some hear them as mental words, but most people simply receive ideas as a sudden arrival of understanding. The wisdom from your soul will be able to reach you either at this moment or at a later time while your attention is diverted elsewhere. Be especially attentive in the next few hours for any subtle idea that arises more than once. It is the repetitive occurrence of such thoughts into your conscious mind that alert you to the realization that you are receiving a suggestion worthy of immediate consideration.

When you feel the peace of the Presence, you have opened yourself to God as Infinite Intelligence. This Infinite Intelligence knows your every need and, by realizing this, you have opened the doors for that realization to express Itself.

The Spiritualize technique fits into any busy schedule. Practice it at the start of every day in order to prompt intuitive support for the day ahead. Use it several times a day whenever you need inner guidance or whenever an existing problem jumps into your mind. It takes just one to five minutes.

Throughout your day, you will be turning within and aligning with the truth of your being. Several times on a daily basis, you will be connecting with a higher level of consciousness, spiritualizing all aspects of your life. By using it throughout your day, you begin to train yourself to focus on Reality rather than illusion. This opens up the resources of your inner world so that your outer world will reflect this higher understanding and wisdom.

The Essential Steps of the Spiritualize Technique

1. Focus inward. You must turn your attention within as God is within you. Nothing is ‘out there’ except the illusion of matter and your outward performance in the theater of life.

2. Breathe into your heart chakra. Heart-centered consciousness is the gateway to God. If you use your intellect only, you will be unable to proceed to step 3.

3. Connect with God. Leave behind all your cares and the issues of the day. Focus your thoughts only upon God. Then stop thinking, be still, and listen. This will have a transformative effect upon your situation and your life.

The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius

by Owen Waters

The Age of Aquarius will last for 2,160 years, so it takes several years for its influence to swing into full effect and become obvious in world affairs.

However, the main trigger for the emergence of this new age – the exact conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at zero degrees of Aquarius – happened on December 21st, 2020.

Previous cosmic eras were triggered by the same zero-degrees conjunction of these powerful planets, each time creating a new phase of growth in human evolution. Previous ages include the dawn of the Age of Aries in 2,330 BC and the dawn of the Age of Pisces in 126 BC.

The New Age of Aquarius is about peace, spiritual joy, harmony, humanity, equality, spiritual liberation, and the freedom to pursue your God-given rights to Life, Liberty, and Happiness.

In recent decades, we have seen glimpses of the nature of the dawning Age of Aquarius. Starting in 1967, in the rock musical Hair, the leading song proclaimed, “This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius” (perhaps a little prematurely) and chanted inspiring lines like,

Peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
Let the sun shine in

Back in 1967, this was revolutionary thinking. It was rebellion against the status quo.

That is because the ideals of Aquarius are associated with democracy, freedom, creativity, nonconformity, humanitarianism, idealism, philanthropy, empathy, respect for people, respect for human rights, and, yes, even rebellion. The old ways of darkness cannot remain standing for long when such a new light emerges upon the planet.

Closer to the actual dawn of the new Aquarian age, spiritual evolution gained a huge boost in 2012 when the December 21st solstice opened the gateway to a whole new era of possibilities. The 2012 gateway marked the closure of many cosmic cycles and the restart of those same cycles in a new and constructive mode, making positive actions much easier to achieve.

Everyone who treated the 2012 winter solstice as a gateway to a bright and hopeful new era helped make the world a better place. Prior to the 2012 gateway, global nuclear devastation had still remained a possibility in our future. Inspired, positive people handled that critical juncture in their own unique ways at a time when the fate of the world lay in the balance. As a result of their efforts, the collective mind of humanity shifted to a new reality where the nuclear option completely ceased to exist!

More recently, at the December 21st solstice of 2020, the Age of Aquarius gained a huge boost. And that’s not all. Other major astrological aspects at that time also marked the start of new cycles of Aquarian-style influence, not just in its 2,160-year cosmic age, but also in 200-year, 500-year, and 800-year cycles!

 

Other Relevant Cycles are also at Work

Democracy is a vital component of the Age of Aquarius and it got started 800 years ago. In those days, a king had ultimate power and he could do just as he pleased with regard to no one. Magna Carta changed all that.

A king of England…
not King John. 🙂

It was a charter of liberties which forced King John of England to agree to new rights for the population that would place him – the ruler – underneath a new rule of Law. With the king forced to give up many of his oppressive actions, the populace gained new rights which would become the basis for the future of English common law and freedom from oppression.

Today, there is also a repeat of the astrological conjunction that triggered another huge wave of change 500 years ago. This one shows just how huge a change can emerge from small beginnings. At the time, Martin Luther was incensed with Church corruption, such as the selling of indulgences (paying money for the forgiveness of sins), and he began hammering copies of his essays of protest to church doors. He demanded reform, risking his life and liberty in the face of enormous established power. Instead of simple reform, what emerged was far more wide-ranging. The Protestant Revolution sprang into life. It was the birth of whole new branches of Christianity where loving communion with the Prince of Peace became a revival movement that took precedent over the old habit of Sunday sermons berating entire congregations as sinners.

The start of a more recent cycle 200 years ago prepared the way for today’s big change. Discoveries in electricity heralded an era of scientific development leading to rapid developments in industry, then homes, and later in today’s people-empowering computers and Internet.

The recent gateway of change in 2020 was one of massive astrological significance. Powerful aspects aligned, marking the development of major, long-term cycles of Aquarian influence.

This will eventually bring about a huge reset in world affairs, but first…

A Word of Caution

People sometimes expect changes to happen now or, at the latest, tomorrow… the kind of people you could almost imagine praying, “Please, God, grant me patience… and hurry it up!”

With grand cosmic cycles, the timescale for change is years, not hours. For example, many people expected the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 to cause a huge positive change in world affairs. When no changes emerged in the next few days, many became disillusioned.

Had they allowed for a longer time frame, they would have felt much better because, two years later, the Berlin Wall was turned into rubble and, two years after that, the Soviet Union collapsed. This ended the Cold War which had haunted the world for decades with the imminent threat of nuclear annihilation. A greater peace emerged, just as originally anticipated, but with its own time schedule.

So, you might wonder, when will the recent powerful astrological influence become noticeable? Big changes take time, but the stars do guarantee their eventual emergence. Its timescale falls into the period 2020-2032, and probably around the middle of that period. So, the obvious changes for the better may not become apparent until 2026, give or take two years.

How You Can Help the World

You can be a part of this emergence into a new and higher level of consciousness for humanity. Engaging in meditation along with intentions for a better world make an enormous difference.

These powerfully influential planets came together just as they entered Aquarius for the first time in centuries to initiate a powerful new phase of growth in human evolution.

Take 20 minutes – or much longer if you can – to engage in meditation – your own preferred technique or our Infinite Being meditation – and add your visualizations for a better world.

The Infinite Being Meditation

by Owen Waters

Peace can sometimes be so far away, and inner bliss… even farther away.

Take the time now to spend some real quality time by going within. Find that sense of peace that lies within. Visit the place where inner bliss dwells and waits patiently for your return.

Let yourself unwind and compose yourself for a few precious moments of peace. Remember that your mind is much more far-reaching than your physical brain. Your mind, as consciousness, is nonphysical, while your brain is just the physical translator of your consciousness.

Your mind, therefore, always has the ability to tell your brain;

“Shsh! It’s meditation time!”

Focus your mind away from the clutter of day-to-day living and turn your attention inwards to the peaceful core of your inner being. Then think of the deepest possible state of consciousness.

And what could that state be?

It is the state of consciousness known as Infinite Being. The word Infinite reflects the idea of unlimited potential, while the word Being refers to a state of awareness, rather than a doing activity. Infinite Being is infinite consciousness without a focus upon any specific activity.

Infinite Being doesn’t have to do anything, it already is everything.

It is important to appreciate that the state of Infinite Being is not “out there” somewhere external to us. Infinite Being encompasses all consciousness, including all manifestation. We are that consciousness, as is everything else in existence. You attune with Infinite Being by turning your focus within, away from the distracting noise of the outer world. 

The Most Powerful Affirmation

In meditation practices, affirmations are often used to focus the mind. By simply repeating the words, “I AM,” you affirm your true nature as consciousness. In the case of the Infinite Being meditation, we affirm our innermost identity as the ultimate, infinite consciousness.

The affirmation “I AM… Infinite Being” is the most powerful affirmation possible within the English language.

The phrase “I am Infinite Being” in itself is an affirmation of your oneness with the ultimate potential, the source of all life, the consciousness from which all life comes forth. You are one with that universal consciousness which is within everything in manifestation. This divine presence is often referred to as the “I AM” Presence. By modifying the phrase to, “I AM (pause) Infinite Being”, you are doubly stating the name of the divine, first as the “I AM” Presence and second as “Infinite Being”.

You can use this to consciously affirm your ultimate potential. If you find issues arising, such as a feeling of unworthiness in your alignment with the ‘All That Is,’ with Infinite Being, just let those thoughts go, then gently bring your mind back into focus upon the affirmation. You do not have to justify the words, or settle any internal argument about them, just because of some prior conditioning as to how someone said you “should” think in this life. Think independently, think infinitely, and you will connect with the consciousness of your ultimate potential.

Have the inner discipline to stay with the affirmation and let any issues fade away unchallenged. Your inner self knows the meaning of the words and resonates in joy with their exact and literal truth. Every time you make this affirmation, you become more connected to Infinite Being. Any lesser thoughts are then healed within the light of greater truth. You can use “I AM… Infinite Being” for meditation or even during a brief quiet time to restore balance from daily stress. When you do, be sure to maintain an awareness of its deep meaning, as mindless repetition of any affirmation will create little or no result. 

Find a quiet place to sit down for a few minutes, close your eyes, and start looking for the quiet space within. To keep your brain occupied with the task at hand, focus your attention on the slow, even flow of your breath as it passes in and out of your nostrils.

As you breathe each in-breath, mentally repeat the affirmation “I AM… Infinite Being.”

On the out-breath, simply allow your attention to follow the flow of air from your nostrils. To induce an immediate calming effect, allow each out-breath to take longer than each in-breath. After the out-breath, pause for a brief moment before the next in-breath.

Life energy, also known as etheric energy, is conditioned primarily within the human spinal column. From there it is distributed to the rest of the body via the subtle nervous system. Most key functions in the human body owe their operation primarily to the supply of etheric life energy, rather than to the supply of electrical energy. Etheric energy, like consciousness, is non-physical and yet it is behind all life.

To help enhance the natural flow of life energy within your spine while performing this meditation it is preferable to sit upright in an erect chair. As you progress with this meditation, the natural flow of life energy within your spine will become enhanced, bringing an enlivened awareness to your consciousness.

When distracting thoughts arise – which they will – treat them with patience and understanding. Put each distracting thought aside so that you can continue with the Infinite Being meditation. If a thought seems important or urgent, then it will be sure to return later, after your meditation session has finished.

There are a number of ways to enhance your meditation experience. One is to reserve a small space, such as the corner of a quiet room, where only meditation is conducted. That space then becomes more conducive to a meditation environment. A small table or surface can be covered with items that you connect with spiritual practice. Candles and incense are especially useful as they provide some initial focus for the senses.

It also helps to always use the same chair, one that is constructed primarily of a non-metallic material. Metal chairs attract etheric life energy away from you, which is great for the chair, but not so good for the meditation session.

A clock or timer completes your setting, and clean, light clothing, reserved especially for meditation, further enhances the atmosphere. A shower or bath before meditation is very valuable, as water is a powerful cleanser. If, for example, you have just come home from a hectic day at work, then your energy body will be filled with the distractions of the day, stored in etheric energy form.

The water that cleanses you in a shower or bath not only cleanses you of physical impurities, but, more importantly, it also cleanses the etheric energy impurities that do not belong in your energy body.

The reason that water is such an effective energy cleanser lies in its chemical composition. Water consists of H2O – hydrogen and oxygen. Oxygen is not just a chemical that the body needs. Its greater role is to carry life-giving, etheric energy. When you shower, your etheric body is being washed with the water’s flow of cleansing, etheric energy.

Make Spirituality Your Number One Priority

The best investment of your time each day is to spend 20 minutes in meditation. Make the time for this to happen. Make it the day’s first priority. The easiest habit to adopt is one which makes up the first activity of the day. Making it a routine will also reinforce the effects of the meditation.

If you are hungry to the point of distraction before a meditation session, then have some light refreshment, such as fruit or juice. Conversely, a full stomach after a heavy meal will have a deadening effect upon the higher possibilities of your meditation session, so plan to eat any large meals at least two hours ahead.

The Aims of the Infinite Being Meditation

  • To quiet your daily brain activity by focusing on rhythmic activities that induce a spiritual focus.
  • To affirm your connection to the highest possible state of awareness.
  • To charge your system with additional life energy through controlled breathing.
  • To create a Being space, where your consciousness can move easily into the experience of your inner state of being.


The Complete Infinite Being Meditation Technique

  1. Take a few moments to completely relax your physical body. Sit in an upright chair with your eyes closed, then clench your feet, toes and leg muscles. Release the tension and let your feet and legs relax completely. Do the same clench-and-release process for your stomach, chest and back; then your arms and hands; then your neck and face.
  2. In preparation, take three deep breaths and exhale each one completely.
  3. Now focus your attention on the slow, even flow of breath as it passes in and out of your nostrils.
  4. As you breathe each in-breath, mentally repeat the affirmation,
    “I AM… Infinite Being.”
  5. On the out-breath, allow your attention to follow the flow of air from your nostrils. To induce an immediate calming effect, slow each out-breath to allow it to take longer than each in-breath.
  6. To make a space for your consciousness to dip into the experience of being, pause at the end of the out-breath. Hold the breath out of your body until you feel the need to inhale again. This will typically be for around three seconds, sometimes less. When you are in this motionless quiet space, don’t think, just be. Subtle impressions may arise from your inner self in this Being Space. The end of each breathing cycle is your personal communion space with your inner being. Ignore surface mental noise – words and feelings that jump into your attention – and maintain your focus upon the quiet inner space and subtle impressions of higher consciousness. Nothing loud comes from your inner being. Focus your awareness upon your inner silence. With practice, this is a time when great insights and inspiration quietly dawn upon your awareness.
  7. Repeat this cycle of breathing and being for 20 minutes.

Remember

The affirmation “I AM… Infinite Being” is the most powerful affirmation possible within the English language.

An effective meditation technique opens the door to more inspiration, love and creativity into your life.

Happy surfing upon the realms of spiritual awareness!

The Ultimate Consciousness-Raising Affirmations

by Owen Waters

Affirmations are a great way to improve your life. Little by little, day by day, the cumulative effect of regular affirmations builds into great and impressive change for the better.

Similar to affirmations, many yoga practitioners use Sanskrit mantras as repetitive statements. The most simple and, therefore, powerful one is “Om” (pronounced as in the word “from” but with a long, resonant “m”). In English, it means “I am” and is a statement identifying the physical mind with the divine presence, which is often referred to as the “I AM” Presence. This acts as a powerful magnet for the Light of God, raising the frequency of consciousness to a more sacred level. That all-present divine awareness can also be appropriately termed in English, “Infinite Being.”

If you research the mantra “Om”, you will come across much confusion about its meaning and the same with another popular mantra, AUM. While “Om” means “I Am” (the divine mind within), the A-U-M is entirely different.

A-U-M in Brahmin script

It is an expression of the three separate, component sounds of the Law of Creation, where the sounds of Creation (yang thought or intention) and Preservation (yin feeling or divine love) come together to express as Manifestation (through action or complementary motion).

In a deep state of meditation, yoga masters hear the A-U-M as etheric sounds being constantly broadcast from the Sun. This provides the energy to power higher consciousness throughout the solar system.

Meditation techniques often use mantras or affirmations as objects of focus to keep the conscious mind from wandering away from a session devoted to gaining higher consciousness. If you prefer affirmations in the English language as they make more sense to your conscious mind, use this:

“I AM… Infinite Being” is the most powerful affirmation possible within the English language.

The phrase, “I am Infinite Being”, in itself is an affirmation of your oneness with the ultimate potential, the source of all life, the consciousness from which all life comes forth. You are one with that universal consciousness which is within everything in manifestation. By modifying it to, “I AM (pause) Infinite Being”, you are doubly stating the name of the divine, first as the “I AM” Presence and second as “Infinite Being”.

You can use this to consciously affirm your ultimate potential. If you find issues arising, such as a feeling of unworthiness in your alignment with the All That Is or Infinite Being, just let those thoughts go, then gently bring your mind back into focus upon the affirmation. You do not have to justify the words, or settle any internal argument about them, just because of some prior conditioning as to how someone said you “should” think in this life. Think independently, think infinitely, and you will connect with the consciousness of your ultimate potential.

Have the inner discipline to stay with the affirmation and let any issues fade away unchallenged. Your inner self knows the meaning of the words and resonates in joy with their exact and literal truth. Every time you make this affirmation, you become consciously more aware of your connection with Infinite Being. Any lesser thoughts are then healed within the light of greater truth. You can use “I AM… Infinite Being” for meditation or during a brief quiet time to restore balance from daily stress. When you do, be sure to maintain an awareness of its deep meaning, as mindless repetition of any affirmation will create little or no result.

The affirmation, “I AM… Infinite Being”, should always be repeated silently and sacredly from a heart-space filled with love for the divine.

Your Choice: Sanskrit or English

The affirmation, “I AM… Infinite Being”, is meaningful to the conscious mind. Use this phrase during meditation as the focus of your thought. As distracting thoughts appear, gently bring your focus back to “I AM… Infinite Being”, allowing your mind to contemplate all the potential this means. Eventually, the mind slows down and calms. Awareness takes over in the stillness. Reaching this point is the goal of your meditation.

The mantra, “Om”, is a word from Sanskrit, the original language on earth which was designed to create meaningful sound vibrations related to the words. So, mentally or verbally chanting the word “Om” invokes an energy supporting your connection to the “I Am” presence. Because a Sanskrit word means nothing to the language-processing side of the brain, it avoids the possibility of intellectual distraction. This is another powerful way to move out of the “busy mind” state and into Awareness. As a meditation chant for spiritual effect, it is repeated mentally with a pause in between each “Om”.

The Sanskrit mantra “Om” and the English affirmation “I AM… Infinite Being” are fundamental statements of your ultimate connection to the divine so, in that sense, they are equal. Choose which one you prefer by giving each one a fair trial in your own deep meditation sessions.
