10 Crucial Human Qualities Needed to Advance the Global Awakening

by Dylan Charles, Waking Times

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.”Shakespeare

war1Reality is anything but fixed, it is created again and again, re-defined from moment to moment as a product of the behavior and choices of all sentient beings. For certain, we are more powerful than we yet know, and each one of us is indeed an actor on the same stage, all of us with the ability to impact and contribute to the story.

Our connection through media amplifies extreme qualities of the human experience, offering a rather warped vision of reality, making our whole situation difficult to see clearly through the fog of sensationalism, distraction and propaganda.

Although truth and justice are severely repressed in our world, an evolutionary shift is rising just below the surface of the mainstream, already effectively challenging the power structures and control paradigms that are driving all of us towards extinction.

The most important players in the world right now are not in the limelight, they are not celebrities, nor are they freaks, oddities or authority creatures. They are the activated human beings out there, setting extraordinary examples by living courageous lives, helping to expand our awareness of what is possible, contributing to a proper vision for the future.

They’re the ones making adjustments to the trim-tabs on the rudders of humanity, so that the future holds promise for a meaningful sea change.

In opposition to the controlling forces of fear, scarcity and decay, we have the opportunity to demonstrate the powers of love, abundance and creativity. For this to come to pass, we are challenged to bring forth, amplify and elevate those human qualities which are most needed right now to push the global awakening forward and bring it into its full power.

Observing the world from my little outpost, I see the potential for people with the following exceptional qualities to play extraordinary roles in this awakening, however, this perspective is mine alone, and the list could just as easily be infinite. If something mentionable is noticed to have been left amiss, please comment and share your input.

1. People who furiously pursue self-mastery, but are able to dodge the traps of the ego and the fantasies of new age salvation.

2. People who meditate, but do not worship.

3. People who practice de-escalation, who understand the high art of withdrawal, and who are willing to compromise in order to win.

4. People who realize that in order to be free you must give freedom to others.

5. People who are capable of staring into the abyss of darkness without falling in, and without losing sight of the light.

6. People who have opinions, but revise them as often as needed to avoid getting fooled by them.

7. People who are more afraid of conformity than of standing alone.

8. People who value experience over suggestion.

9. People who love themselves first, and protect themselves first.

10. People who respect the universal principle that nature is here for our use, but not for our abuse.

11. Self-healers and self-teachers who survive by practicing independence.

12. People who understand the import and impact of history, but who are willing to abandon it or escape from it.

13. People who appreciate and rabidly exercise the power of saying ‘no.’

14. People who recognize that material truth is multi-layered and rarely revealed in its entirety at once.

15. People who know that spiritual truth is revealed in cosmic flashes of total clarity, but whom happily return to their work here on earth when the ride is over.

16. People who maintain harmony and balance by practicing gratitude, acceptance, appreciation and most importantly, service.

17. People who are experienced and skilled in transmuting their own anger into love.

18. People who can laugh at anything. For if it cannot be laughed at, it is not the Tao.

Final Thoughts

We have a tremendous opportunity at our fingertips. Rather than accidentally submitting to the Orwellian reality being scripted for us by the engineers of a society and culture in collapse, we have the choice to actively participate in re-writing our future for our own benefit.

This humble list is a reminder that it’s time to figure out where you stand in the struggle, to get there, and to stand firm.

10 Ways You Can Help Stop Third Eye Blindness

Every human being’s pineal gland or the third eye can be activated to spiritual world frequencies and enables you to have the sense of all-knowing, godlike euphoria and oneness all around you. A pineal gland once tuned into to proper frequencies with help of meditation, yoga or various esoteric, occult methods, enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly known as astral travel or astral projection or remote viewing.

third eyeThe pineal gland or third eye is a crucial piece of the brain and one that is the most susceptible to danger of calcination.The accumulation of fluoride, mercury thimerosal (in vaccines) and other toxins in the blood, cause it to calcify by forming a protective layer over the gland. Its like having a cataract on your third eye.

Artificial foods and ingredients, toxic hormones in animal bi-products, poor nutrition, a weak immune system and sodium fluoride in our drinking water, can be considered to blame for the calcification of the pineal gland on a world-wide level.

When you’re pineal gland is calcified the following symptoms can appear:

weight gain
digestive disorders
poor circulation
lack of vision
mood disorders
“mental disorders”
severe insomnia

Not to mention the fact that with an inactive pineal gland, the ability to tap into universal knowing, oneness, and heaven like euphoria that is all around you, at every moment has been stripped away. Which is largely where humanity is at today as a whole. With our third eyes closed we are unable to see the realms and beings that are around us all the time. Our connection has been cut off before we even had the time to understand what was happening.

Here’s what you can do.

1.Drink Clean Drinking Water (fluoride free)

2.DMT-Ayahuasca (plant medicine)

3.Eat Organic

4.Buy Non GMO Foods

5.Sun Gazing

6.Citric Acid (acid breaks down calcium deposits)

7.Use Iodine (helps release fluoride in the body)

8.Take Boron (known fluoride remover in the body)

9. Try Chaga Mushrooms

10.Eat Raw Chocolate (detoxify-er & antioxidant)

Once you’ve cleansed your physical body it’s time to initiate the re-opening.

How do you do this?

Just close your eyes and focus your eyes on forehead exactly where the two eyes meet. With your eyes closed, focus there for few seconds, initially and then maybe a minute or more later, channeling your energy to your forehead where your sixth sense is located. Picture your third eye like a flower, right now it is closed. Imagine it opening up. Continue to do this over and over. Practice it several times. If this method doesn’t suit you. Imagine yourself at the start of a tunnel and the light is at the end of the tunnel. Your goal is to reach the light at the end.

It’s time to take back our power, spread the word– open your third eye today.

7 Reasons Why Your Spiritual Awakening Has Come to a Sudden Stop

No matter your level of conscious awareness or the level of spiritual enlightenment that you have attained, there will come a time on your spiritual journey where you know and feel that you have made great internal progress and then suddenly.. nothing.

Positivity has flown out the window, prophetic visions and lucid dreaming have been replaced with normal lower conscious ideals and mindfulness has been replaced with overactive thinking patterns. You simply can’t make the connection that you once felt and it seems impossible to return to the level of light, love and higher awareness that you seek.

Everything you attempt to get moving again seems to fail, as if an invisible road block has been put right in front of you, leaving you wondering, just what is going on? It’s a path that can’t be avoided, but why does it happen?

Spiritual road blocks are designed for you to slow down and take a break. Your initial spiritual awakening, may have been so full-blown, that now your mind needs the time to rearrange itself. A reformation of belief systems, perceptions of the world and perceptions of yourself are in order here.

These time periods can be extremely frustrating and sometimes even painful if the cycle is leading you into (a)nother Dark Night of the Soul. Navigating this rocky terrain requires, patience and gentleness with yourself, in order to sail the rough waters, safely ashore.

Determining the root cause of spiritual, developmental, stalemates, are crucial to getting you back on the road again.

1.You Need Healing

A spiritual awakening can bring repressed memories and emotions from your unconscious into your conscious awareness. Such as past lives, things you may have forgotten about or things you weren’t even aware had occurred, may come bubbling to the surface. You may even begin to disassociate with these memories, eluding yourself into believing that they are figments of your imagination.

2.You’re Angry

Any psychologist will tell you that anger stems from a wide
variety of underlying causes. When it comes to anger stemming from a spiritual awakening however, we usually can narrow down the field a little bit.

You still have hidden repressed memories, not yet brought to surface as well as the failure to forgive for those memories brought to your conscious awareness.

3. You have developed an over-inflated sense of self.

When you awaken you feel on top of the world, you feel like you have ‘finally arrived’ and looking back at others who have not yet reached your level of awareness, you can’t help but eventually feel “special”.

Don’t get me wrong, spiritual enlightenment and the evolution of consciousness is something to be celebrated!

However, spiritual enlightenment is the ultimate goal for all humanity, not just a chosen few.

The more you associate yourself with this I.D of being different or special, that is according to Freud, “motivated by self-gratification
and pleasure” the more you battle with your ‘super ego’ effectively making it impossible to sustain a present awareness of acceptance and love, Thus hindering the continuance of your spiritual growth.

Quite simply the more you believe that you have “arrived” the more you have nowhere to go. No matter how much you want to continue on your quest in attaining consistent spiritual fulfillment your cup is full and needs to be emptied.

4. You’re frustrated with the current world status.

After much euphoria and exploration of the higher realms of life, gaining the wisdom and understanding of your multidimensional universally connected existence, you find yourself– human again. This can be a major let down. The power that you exuded in the upper realms isn’t manifesting in your current physical state and this can cause much discomfort and impatience.

You may also feel alienated from much of society as you have been endowed with much wisdom and wish to share your knowledge and yet to those who are “un-enlightened”, your perceptions and ideals are viewed as unrealistic and over-exuberant.

After much effort in attempting to teach others of your path, you end up feeling more discouraged than appreciated. Feeling as though your hands are chained, watching as the masses fall into the same old cycles of fear, attachment and compliance to the ruling oligarchy.

5. You’ve fallen back into old patterns of behaviour

Do you remember that moment when you first “made contact?” The moment when everything opened up for you in a blink of an eye and your entire world was changed. You saw reason and meaning behind everything that is, was and is yet to come.

Do you also remember how it felt when you realized that you were a pawn in the game, a slave to a system that appeared to be winning?

This is your reminder.

What we were exposed to during our awakenings was real and true, so hold fast and hold firm because we are the change and we are the people the world has been waiting for– all of us.

6. You’re not listening to your heart

While we are all globally connected, with hearts beating to the same drum, we are still unique. Each of us have a piece to a larger puzzle that is ushering in the age of enlightenment. Not one of us views the world from an entirely uniform basis of perception and it is in this uniqueness that lies your life purpose. That piece of the puzzle that you are to bring to the table and do this you must follow your heart.

We are always receiving subtle cues, synchronicities and soft nudges from the universe: a guidepost of light in a world that sometimes can feel enshrouded with darkness. When your mind cannot find its way out of its current spectrum of reality, your heart will always guide you along the path you are seeking.

Trust it.

7.You still think that you are unworthy

Due to major cultural, societal and religious indoctrination’s, a spiritual awakening can naturally be interpreted as an external happening, that of which you had little or no control over.

A gift from the gods or God, as your consciousness projects itself and is viewed out of the physical body. As such, feelings of
unworthiness can immediately take over the control center in your mind and many will feel that they have been blessed with such a wonderful gift, that is not deserved.

While there are many Gods, Bodhisattva’s and Guides that can be of assistance to you on your awakening journey, the realization of authentic power is the ultimate liberation.
This authentic power emanates from within your own unconscious mind, that which is already a part of you; quite simply it is in your DNA.

By making the unconscious-conscious and bringing memory forward, the wisdom and knowledge unfolds in knowing that you are in control of your own destiny. Everything you need is already within you.

So if you are stuck on your spiritual awakening journey, meet your anger with love, follow your heart in all of your ways and remember that you are always worthy.

5 Things You Need to Know About The Tree of Life

5 Things You Need to Know About the Tree of Life

The tree of life or world tree, is a creative symbol of manifestation in many cultures. Known as the ultimate gateway to the knowledge of oneself and the true nature of reality.

Upon the awakening of the serpent energy or naas, the “moist essence of the universe” in the Gnostic view, also known as a kundalini awakening. The serpent energy coiled at the base of spine makes its ascend upwards into the brain and ignites all of the pathways, as the synapses begin firing wildly. This activation serves as the initial link between the metaphysical and physical reality of existence. Allowing the seeker to acquire his first evolutionary step into heightened awareness.

This tree of life, allows the initiate to travel between the three worlds as depicted in shamanic practice. Creating the connection needed to be established between physical and non physical reality. When this bridge is formed the seeker connects with the lower and higher dimensional beings as well as animal spirit totems.

Yet, this is just one of five trees of life, and the secret of the five trees is what we are here to talk about today.

According to the Coptic Gospel of Thomas, the secret teachings of Jesus, found over a half of a century ago in the desert of Egypt. It states that Jesus told his disciples (19) “For you have five trees in Paradise which do not change, either in summer or in winter, and their leaves do not fall. He who knows them shall not taste of death”

Legend of the five trees of paradise mirrorservice.org

A parallel to this teaching can be found in Hindu tradition where the five trees are known as mandara, parikata, samtanaka, haricandana and kalpa vrksa.

As well as in the Kaballalistic interpretation of the five worlds and the five senses known Asiyah, Yetzirah, Beriah, Atzilut & Adam Kadmon describing the five dimensional levels, as it relates to the souls progression towards unity consciousness.

1.The Tree of Life (The World Tree)

tree of life11Expressed as a large ash, oak or bodhi, the tree of life is found at the center of earths three worlds. Used as a passageway between the 3 dimensional levels of consciousness that earth serves.

The world tree signifies the initiates attainment of the first of five senses being vision and will be accompanied by prophetic dreams and visions of the future. 

2. The Second Tree of Life

Expressed as a large pink coral, the bottom of the tree is brass or copper and is used as a portal through the fifth dimension where beings who exist on this level travel as seen by portal openings just as doorways… with no door.

The fifth dimensional tree signifies the initiates attainment of hearing and is accompanied by bouts of telepathic communication. 

3. The Third Tree of Life 

This tree serves as the clearing and re-connecting of the nervous system. Expressed as a large flowing tree, alike to a white weeping willow, repressed memories of life before incarnation surge forward into your waking consciousness.

The third tree of life signifies the initiates attainment of smell and is accompanied by the smell of flowers in waking state with no source apparent. 

4. The Fourth Tree of Life

Upon reaching this fourth tree the seeker experiences what is known as the elixir of immortality, or the nectar of the gods, this sweet tasting honey is produced and drips down the back of the throat giving one the experience of timelessness. Restoring him to pristine physical health. The fourth tree signifies the initiates attainment of taste.

5. The Fifth Tree of Life

leonardoKnown only as myth and legend, this tree of life signifying the piercing through and connecting physically and metaphysically to the “gods above”.

The effects are unknown. The fifth tree signifies the initiates attainment of touch.

As each tree of life unfolds in your mind, you begin to see that all is connected and that the mind is the center of consciousness, because while yet not proven scientifically there is surmounting evidence that the center of the universe is consciousness itself. When you connect your body and mind to this eternal consciousness, you CAN achieve ever lasting life.

New Research Confirms That ‘The Age of Awakening’ Has Come

We live in the age of Awakening. More and more people are concerned about this: Who or what am I? I’m just the sum of my personal life story, memories, experiences, thoughts and sufferings? Or is therein me a hidden dimension of a mysterious consciousness, which is superimposed by the noise of my personal life stories?

The spiritual awakening means for the person the ability “to clearly see that what I perceive, experience, think or feel, is after all not the same as what I am.” As soon as a person recognizes who he or she is not, immediately comes the recognition of who he or she actually is: “The light of consciousness, in which perceptions, experiences, thoughts and emotions come and go. This consciousness in the background, is the deeper, real self.”

The Presence thus created (conscious alertness) brings about the sense of tranquility and internal peace. The sustained conscious attention launches the spiritual process of transubstantiation that leads the individual to conscious alertness, new perspective and new ways of observing. This process, by transforming the consciousness of the person, changes the entire personality of the individual.

The transformation of the conscience, the beginning of spiritual consciousness, is when the person experiences that he or she is the consciousness that perceives the operation of Ego. In Tolle’s opinion, when a person is aware that he/she is thinking, the consciousness that experiences this is not part of the person’s thinking. This is another dimension of consciousness.

Eckhart Tolle believes that this conscious alertness has already appeared at a small, but rapidly increasing part of mankind.

Following the teachings of Eckhart Tolle, Frank M Wanderer created the Conscious Alertness Scale and carried out its statistical analysis. The purpose has been developing a new measuring instrument for the recognition of spiritual consciousness. An attempt has been made to find out whether this new consciousness exists at all and to what extent it is present in the population concerned (college students).
The measuring instrument thus created was used to seek an answer to the question as to whether the Conscious Alertness was present among college students, and whether there was any difference between the two genders in this respect. Eight hundred and fifty-four students were involved in the survey.

Frank research has verified his research hypothesis, that is, Conscious Alertness is present among college students.

The Conscious Alertness Scale revealed three dimensions of the Presence:

  1. Reduction in the functions of Ego
  2. Transcending the functions of Ego
  3. Alert consciousness in the present

Among college students, the Alert consciousness in the present dimension of the Conscious Alertness had the highest prevalence.

Within that dimension, the sense of an “inner body” (an internal vividness behind the external body) was the most common. Of the students, 14,4% experience this feeling several times a day and 13,1% of them at least once a day. An individual is only able to experience this emotion if he or she is consciously experiencing the current moment. Of the college students, 9,8% experiences an emotion several times a day and 9,1% does so once a day that the surrounding world is the reflection of the universal existence. Of the students, 8,5% see themselves in moments of clear conscience several times a day and 4,6% of them experiences this at least once a day. Of the students, 5,9% experience the sense of peace and happiness without any particular reason every day, and 3,3% of them are visited by this feeling several times a day.

The second most common dimension of Conscious Alertnesswas Reduction in the functions of Ego. Within that, the reduction of the desire to possess things was particularly conspicuous.

Of the students, 9,8% rarely and 3,3% of them never or almost never experienced the longing for something more. Being offended and nursing, sustaining the sense of being offended as the strategies of reinforcing the Ego also had a diminishing tendency among many of the college students (rarely: 6,5%, never or almost never 2,6%; nursing the sense of being offended: rarely 5,2%, never or almost never 2,6%). The prevalence of experiencing the sense of “I am right” as a strategy of sustaining and reinforcing the Ego also diminished considerably among college students. Of those college students, 5,2% of them rarely and 3,3% of them never or almost never experience this emotion. Of the college students, 7,8% rarely experience the recklessness and dissatisfaction rooted in dissatisfied want and desires, and 1,3% of them almost never do. The withdrawal of the Ego was the least spectacular at complaining (rarely 2,6%, never or almost never 1,3% of them complain) and boasting (2,1% boast rarely, 0,7% never or almost never do so).

The prevalence of Transcending the functions of Ego was the least common among the components of the Conscious Alertness.

Within that dimension, transcending thinking and emotions were the most frequent patterns of behavior. 3,3% of the students experience this impression daily and 2% several times a day. Of the students, 2,6% have the impression that their thoughts and emotions constitute only a small fragment of their real personalities, and 0,7% of them encounter this feeling several times a day. In the frequency of occurrence, this was followed by the detachment from external things, which was experienced by 3,2% of the students every day and 0,7% of them several times a day. Students appeared to be least capable of transcending the perpetual operation of thinking; only 1,4% of them experienced that the stream of their was aimless and repetitive.

Eckhart Tolle argues that the emergence of the Conscious Alertness is relatively independent of gender; it appears in men as well as in women.

Our research findings underpin this opinion, as we were unable to reveal any considerable difference between the genders in any of the dimensions of Conscious Alertness.

5 Intimate Qualities of An Enlightened Partner

5 Intimate Qualities of An Enlightened Partner

Have you ever wondered why it is possible to walk into a room and immediately been drawn to someone you don’t even know? Like there is a magnetic force field between you, drawing you in, bring you closer and closer until finally without even knowing it, you are lost in conversation full of sexual charge.

5 Intimate Qualities of An Enlightened PartnerWe all possess powerful, electrical and magnetic forces within us. Alike to a magnet, we exert a force of attraction to others and between lovers, this magnetic energy is amplified, as we fixate on what it is that we are attracted to.

When we can learn to embrace this powerful energy, we can wield it to elevate our consciousness through the sacred act of sex.

An enlightened partner is aware of this and will use this same magnetic energy, to elevate the experience to heights you never thought possible. As if they are reading your mind, your sensitive spots, likes and dislikes without speaking a word.

If you are an un-enlightened person or someone who is not in tune with their own energy, you may be unaware of what is actually happening.

So how can we know, other than just great sex, if your partner is enlightened?

1.They are in the present moment.

5 Intimate Qualities of An Enlightened PartnerAn enlightened partner understands that sex can be meditative experience. Facilitating the three qualities of seeking an inward
meditative state. Breath control, withdrawing the senses and concentration. When you are with an enlightened partner their mind isn’t wandering.

They aren’t thinking about anything other than what is being experienced in this very moment. The sensual touching and the energy being shared. The joy of the energy bodies igniting, becoming en-kindled in each other in order to heal and balance.

2. Sex Isn’t Just About Sex

An enlightened partner knows that there is no end game when it comes to sex and there is no rush. Sex isn’t about the release, it is about the experience.

5 Intimate Qualities of An Enlightened PartnerWhen intimately connected, sex becomes more about deepening the emotional, psychological and spiritual bond.

3. They Look Deeply Into Your Eyes

An enlightened partner wants to see your soul and connect with your spirit. By staring deeply into your partners eyes you can bridge the connection, from soul to soul and spirit to spirit and the
energy flows freely between the pair.

4. They are Not Selfish

A person who is selfish in general, is likely to be selfish in bed. A selfish lover won’t be connected to you emotionally and may stick
to one position that works for them.

How to Arouse Your KundaliniAn enlightened partner will try taking things slow and will embrace various positions, to gain the proper energy flow.

This also is to ensure both partners are enjoying themselves as sex shouldn’t be about hard work.

5. Their Energy is Magnetic

An enlightened partner can play with your energy body. Using the positive and negative charge to draw up the energy from your sacral chakra, moving it up your spine with the intent to release it through the top of your head.

An enlightened partner wants you to experience… enlightenment!

The Evidence We’ve Been Looking For, Earth IS Ascending

In the US, Canada, and Central and South America a total lunar eclipse will begin the evening of September 27, 2015. In Europe, South/East Asia, Africa, the Arctic, and in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans it starts on September 28, 2015.

For 1 hr and 12 minutes, this Blood Moon will be totally eclipsed.


Our ancient ancestors believed that Eclipses open a portal to higher realms, making it possible for us to receive huge downloads of information. That is why they built sophisticated and mysterious structures such as Stonehenge and Newrange, which were designed to amplify the powerful cosmic energies being made available to them.

Despite the opening of powerful Stargate portals and the potential for new beginnings offered by the current universal geometries however, many people find it difficult to believe that anything is really changing when chaos still seems to reign, and evidence of human mayhem continues all around us. Perhaps this ‘madness’ is part of a deep cleansing of the planet? And perhaps how quickly we can integrate the new energy and adjust to it, will depend on the level of each individual’s vibratory frequency.

We are being asked I think, to do everything in our power to raise our vibration out of 3D density and into the higher frequencies of Light. This always has been and still is, the prime purpose and raison d’être of the  ‘Sounds of Sirius’. It’s my belief that the melodies, tones and Light Language that flow through me from the higher dimensional realms, are being gifted quite specifically to raise the vibration of those who receive them, and in so doing, reconnect them with their soul’s original blueprint.

There is concrete evidence to suggest that Mother Earth herself is shifting her vibration, in order to adapt to the paradigm shift. The Schumann Frequencies are the ‘sound’ of the earth. It’s like hearing the sound of a big drum, with that drum being the earth’s resonant cavity. Only a few years ago the earth was vibrating at around 7.8 hertz, but a few days ago, the Schumann frequency hit 16.5.

This demonstrates that the earth itself is changing…she is literally speeding up!

Why is the number 16.5 important?

16.5, 33, 66, 132, 264….these numbers are all harmonic to the Solfeggio tone 528, which is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the gentetic blueprint upon which life is based.

What are Solfeggio Frequencies?

Here’s a short clip that explains the basis of the Solfeggio tones.

If the Schumann frequency is resonating at a harmonic of 528 – the frequency scientists use to repair broken DNA – it would suggest would it not then, that our DNA may be repairing itself
right now? Perhaps Mother Earth’s change of vibration to the harmonic of 528 is kick-starting our DNA re-activation, in order that we can move in sync with her, as she transcends 3D density to enter 4th and 5th dimensional realms.

The following excerpt from channel and healer Malcolm Bell’s book ‘Rider in the Mist’ reinforces the idea of the intrinsic connection between human beings and Planet Earth:-

“The human being is comprised of five bodies: the physical, the mental, the emotional, the spiritual, and the higher self. Any change in the earth’s energy field affects all five bodies, so all five have to be realigned – adjusted in increments according to the varying and ongoing energy fluctuations – and brought back into balance and harmony. In short, the symptoms that people were experiencing were the body’s response to the changing vibration. The body was struggling to adjust to the previously unknown, and never before encountered, elevated and newly patterned energy levels. Unknown to us at times such as this, the body searches through its ancient tribal and genetic memory bank imprints, in an attempt to find a pre-existing pattern to align with. Finding none, it now has to embark upon a critical program of developing and implementing a precise and compatible alternative energy-pattern match. In the process of doing so, all five bodies endure considerable discomfort and confusion.”

The many and varied symptoms that people have been experiencing over the past few years as their bodies attempt to align with the huge ‘Shift of the Ages’ taking place, have become so widespread that they have called ‘Ascension Symptoms’.

So don’t panic if you have been feeling kind of strange, ungrounded, exhausted, dizzy, fuzzy or depressed – you are not alone! As Mother Earth continues to uplift her vibration to the New Earth dimensional frequencies, with our Sun assisting by sending us massive charges of intense radiation on almost a daily basis now, you are instinctively acclimatising and trying to match her vibration, so that you can travel with her on the ‘Ascension’ path.

A Dark Night of the Soul Survival Guide

If you have ever experienced a dark night of the soul or are going through one now, know that you are not alone. A dark night is a spiritual rite of passage. It is hard not to feel that your every hope and dream has been ripped away from you. This absence of light can be excruciating, leaving you wondering if your faith will ever be restored.

A dark night strips away all of your beliefs, everything you thought you knew, and sometimes even reality itself. In a dark night you must lose yourself, the you who you thought you were, in order to find your true self. Your true existence. There are many people all over the world who have undergone the trials and tribulations of this night and it can be extremely intense.

The expansion of awareness that follows is sensational, and the wisdom that is endowed unto a person is invaluable. This purging of old to create new, the birth canal, that one must take, is the most painfully and exciting spiritual journeys one can ever take in any lifetime and in any incarnation.

Why Are We Waking Up?

Why Are We Waking Up?

It seems all the craze is about how to have a spiritual awakening and the awakening movement. And it’s true, the number of awakening people are rising in mass numbers across the globe and what could be more exciting!

Yet, while all of the focus has been “its time to wake up” “it’s time to remember who you are and where you come from”. We seem to overlook an important question. Why are we waking up? There are many theories floating around about this and many explanations have been but whats what’s really going on?

1. We are destroying the earth. Obviously we can’t fight the scientific data of global warming. It’s a fact. As well as the detrimental effects of pollution in our oceans and the mass deforestation of our natural rain forests. However, should the human race carry the weight of this guilt? That, we are such horrible care takers and “its all our fault”. Shame on us? Absolutely not. You see, guilt is a powerful emotion and fear is an infectious virus. Next to fear, guilt is a number one motivator and today I am here to tell you it’s not your fault, so lose the guilt. If you think because you like/need to consume things that you are to blame for the state of the world, forget about it! Do you control the world? No, you control your world, so be conscientious and always try to give back to the earth as much as you take.

To put this into perspective you are an organism and in biological science there are three types of organisms. The first class are organisms that give as much as they take. The second class are organisms that give more than they take, and the third are known as viruses, that take and do not give back.

Humans as species, can also be divided into these three classes. There are those who exist on the planet who always make the choice to give back to the earth and then there are those who take and take and do not give back. Whichever you decide to be is your own free will. Be a virus or be a caretaker the choice is up to you.

2. Another Species is Helping in Our Ascension

There is some merit to this theory, as there have been many accounts of inter-dimensional beings assisting in our evolutionary process. And many accounts by those who have undergone the spiritual awakening process of these beings communicating with them. In fact, throughout history there are several accounts of this and are known as stair step evolution. As in the history of Ancient Egypt dating back to 4500 BC where there are unexplained leaps in educational advancement of the civilization.

3. We are About to Be Invaded by UFO’s 

For over 50 years humanity has been spoon fed little by little, tales of alien abductions and UFO invasion stories. Almost as if w are being prepared for something…From popular movies such as Judgement Day, to media reports of spotted UFO in the skies. The number of accounts is increasing by the day. There are also many accounts of abductees, and unexplainable cases where people have clear memory of being taken against their own will.

Whether you believe that another species is here to help in our ascension or another species is here to invade us. The framework of this theory has been embedded so far into the psyche of human kind, that if an event of this magnitude happens for all to see, it will not come as a huge shock to society as a whole. And whether or not these theories have credible proof, we need to understand the motives behind them and associate a better understanding of that in which we exist in to see where they are derived from.

So here is the spiritual science of it all.

The earth itself is a body of consciousness, just as all other planets in all solar systems, in every galaxy; in the entire universe.

What does that mean?

It means that the earth itself is an expression of its own being. In the same way that your body is composed of billions of atoms; a living breathing organism. The earth is expressed in this same way. There is the common phrase that describes this and I am sure you have heard of it, that “we are the universe experiencing itself in every moment” But how can we truly understand this with clarity?

I AM presence.

What does this mean to you? To me it means I AM nothing and in that nothing, I become everything. I am every planet, moon, star and galaxy. I am every stone, pebble and mountain. I am every drop in the ocean, because I am the ocean. I am everything all at once and when I see that I am everything, I who I think I am, have become nothing.

When I look out into the night sky, I see the same reflection of myself as if I were looking under a microscope viewing the cells of my being. And if you can change your perspective you too might just see how everything is connected.
From the smallest cell to the largest galaxy everything is the same representation of itself. This, the true meaning of ” The Kingdom of God is All Around You”

So let’s get down to the major question at hand here. Why are we waking up?

Throughout the works of Dolores Cannon, a wildly popular author and hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression. We find a common theme. In the last five years of working with thousands of clients for over four decades what Dolores discovered was astonishing.

She began to come into contact with those who had not previously incarnated in the earth. And surprisingly, what she found was that these people had come directly from source itself or other dimensions of reality. These dimensions of reality are what we understand as cells or circles when we associate them with the flower of life and when she posed the question to each of her patients “why have you come?”. In astonishment, many replied with the same answer “we heard the call”.

In a worlds first documentary, biological scientists caught on camera the death of a white blood cell and discovered that upon its death, the cell sends out a distress call. It’s own alert system, that tells the other cells around it what is happening. This is what happens when a planet dies. You can watch the video here.

Does this mean that we are all going to die? No.

Is this the end of the world? It will be the end of the world as we know it and that’s ok.

Are other beings coming from other dimensions to assist with our ascension? Absolutely. Will we be invaded by UFO’s? Probably. Bacteria and infectious diseases are known to attack weak cells and when a cell is attacked by bacteria, the three nucleus that exist inside of the cell are destroyed one by one.

Just as the earth is composed of three nucleus or ‘three worlds’ widely known in Hindu Culture, the bacteria begins to destroy
earths ascensioneach. To put it simply, its sort of like the Lord of The Rings Movie, where the battle over Middle Earth starts.

Are we going to be ok? Yes. Death must occur in order for new life to grow. You see death is not death, but transformation. When a cell dies it leaves it skin behind and the bacteria remove of it. When your body dies you return to the earth and the earth recycles your body. When a butterfly undergoes metamorphosis it leaves its shell behind.

Have no fear there is a new world arising. Mother earth must shed her skin to ascend and transform. Every ending is a new beginning.  A new world is arising, a new earth, a pure earth. An earth where love is at the very core.

How to Reset Your Soul Story

How to Reset Your Soul Story

Perhaps the single most important thing to become aware of if you wish to awaken from the dream of mind is being fully aware of how your mind has attached itself to stories – and in particular the story of you and the world.

It is my experience as a person who has long explored the human psyche that we all come into our lives with “soul issues”. These are essential tendencies and patterns of behaviour that recur from lifetime to lifetime.

There are other kinds of stories besides soul stories which impact our lives. Like soul stories, they are embedded within consciousness fields that impact how we experience life on this If You Knew What You Were Capable of You Would Be Doing this tooplanet. For example, the consciousness structures of our ancestors become implicitly contained within our psyches when we are born, as does the energy of place, country, race and so on. Then there are planetary and cosmic influences. All of these things operate beyond our conscious control. An important point is that though highly significant, these other energies tend to be subtle. They are best dealt with by highly attuned masters of the spirit. In other words, addressing them is like doing advanced courses of math, and it is not much use for an average student attempting to explore such things.

This is not so with the power of story. It is your mastery of this level of mind that lays the foundation for your awakening. Without a strong understanding of the mind, you quite simply cannot awaken. This is true even if you are a master of the 8 Signs You're More Spiritual Than You Think!psychic realm. And this is why many people who are highly psychic or intuitive are not spiritually mature. Many clairvoyants remain trapped in drama and suffering because they do not become masters of the mind.

It is a very simple thing to become aware of your story. All you have to do is witness the thoughts that repeatedly enter your head as your life unfolds. Those thoughts contains patterns of belief, and macro-constructs about how life and cosmos operate.

The self-limiting themes that dominate humanity are easy enough to spot. We have the story of the victim, where life is unfair and has stolen your light from you. This is perhaps the pervasive of all meta-narratives present in current humanity. It is a story of blame. It is always the other guy’s fault. Then there is the story of the bad boy or girl. This is one of guilt and shame, where the dominant idea is “There is something wrong with me.”

12 Things Your Soul Wants You to RememberOf course we also have the stories of the bully, the unloved one, and the lost soul. In the story of the outcast, our hero must be vanished from the village, forever ostracised and alone. A related theme is that of the pariah, the dirty one who must carry the sins of the fathers.

All such stories have subtle variations and expressions, and the precise beliefs that underpin them vary from person to person. Nobody loves me. I can never get what I want. You can’t trust anyone. The world is a cruel and terrible place. People are crap. Life is unfair. It doesn’t matter what you do, you can never succeed. I am powerless.

There are, of course, positive stories and expressions of consciousness, yet they don’t tend to hold us back. Believing that “I am a beautiful and loveable human being” won’t get you into too much trouble. The exception is with narcissistic or delusional beliefs. Believing that you cannot fail may have certain advantages, but sooner or later the story will come unstuck, because we all fail at something sooner or later. So sometimes we have to bring awareness to how we set ourselves up for suffering by overestimating our capacities, and what is required to produce certain outcomes in life.

Every single thought that enters your mind, and every single life event you experience is an opportunity to deepen your awareness live-in-the-moment-min-minof your story. This is the great news. No matter at what stage of life you find yourself, you can bring attention to your soul story simply by bringing yourself fully present and observing thoughts and beliefs as they arise. One time I became more deeply aware of my story as the victim, when I saw how following a certain sporting team was bringing out my victim-centered story. When my team was losing, I found myself blaming the umpire (a very common theme!), the ground conditions, the media reports and so on. Anybody but the team. Have you ever met a person who, on Monday morning, admitted that the referee gave his team a leg up? It doesn’t happen. The referee is always against your team, the media biased against your political views, and the teacher always grades the other guy above you unfairly. Strange that, isn’t it? Like I said, the victim story – the idea that everything is unfair and the world is against me – is the prime story which currently holds back people on this planet.

Becoming present is simple. Whenever you find yourself in a situation where there is suffering arising from the world of mind, simply stop and bring your attention to any object that is within your physical proximity. It might be the photocopier, the chair, the tissue on the table. Plants are wonderful ways to ground yourself in presence, as their energy in completely here, completely now.

As your attention falls upon the object, say the words to yourself: “I re-set. I am here now in the truth of this moment.” Breathe deeply, centre yourself within your body. Then witness any 10 Affirmations To Surrender Your Problems To The Universethoughts that enter your mind in relation to the situation in which you find yourself. As the witness, you will be able to separate your judgments towards what is happening from the situation itself. Make the intention to stay in that state of presence for at least thirty minutes. As you ground yourself in the present moment you will be able gain a new perspective upon your situation, and from there you will be able to intuit the best course of action to resolve your problem; or simply relax and await the situation to run its course.

It is only from the truth of presence that you can truly see the world, can truly see yourself in your infinite magnificence. As long as you remain in the world of story you cannot live in the truth of who you are as a spiritual being. You cannot truly love yourself, nor this world where God has placed you.

The mind is a world of illusion. But most people tend to be so attached to their mind’s story and its interpretations that they cannot distinguish thought from truth. Your task on the path of awakening is to develop a full, experiential, embodied understanding of this. And once you do that, you will be a master of the mind, and a champion of the soul.

This One Technique is Proven to Get You Out of Body

From ayahuasca to sensory deprivation tanks and shamanic journeys, to teas, elixirs and natural herbs. It seems everyone is looking to achieve an out-of-body experience and connect with the unknown. Why has it become such a craze?

An out-of-body or astral projection is something that everyone needs to experience, at least once. It is the single most soul satisfying experience, because it allows you to connect with all things in the universe. From meeting with guides, angels and fifth dimensional beings and the full experience of being one with creation itself. An out-of-body experience restores you to your natural state, prior to incarnation.

A true out-of-body experience will connect you with the energy of creation and allows your thoughts to create everything you experience. It can best be explained by the understanding that your third eye is like a movie projector, creating your existence as you walk through it. Everything is mental on the astral side, if you think it, it transpires right in front of you. You are in absolute control of the entire experience.

If fear or anxiety come in to play, the out-of-body will immediately cease and you will find that your consciousness has returned faster than a snapping elastic band.

If you can stay centered and be open, the length of out-of-body can be extended from what feels like a mere few minutes to a few hours of exploration. The best part of an out-of-body is that when you travel there is no notion of time. Time is non-existent, therefore you are free to travel to any point in your life at any time and to any place your mind can create.

It is important to remember that the heart is always your guide and will lead you to where you are looking to go. Most times, when you are looking for an out-of-body, you will not be in control of where you are going. The conscious mind lays down its sword to your heart center, and it leads you to what you are looking for and then the mind creates the experience.

Are you excited?! Your should be. Lets get started!

The origins of this technique date back to Ancient Egypt. A teaching passed on to only chosen initiates. And today, you are being given this technique.

I refer to this technique as the Earthquake of the Mind, as it comes from the ability to shake the energy of the metaphysical body or energy body loose from the physical body.

The inspiration for this technique has come from the Emerald Tablets of Thoth.

Deep in the silence,
first ye must linger until at last ye
are free from desire,
free from the longing to speak in the silence.

Conquer by silence, the bondage of words.
Abstaining from eating until we have conquered
desire for food, that is bondage of soul.

Then lie ye down in the darkness.
Close ye your eyes from the rays of the Light.
Centre thy soul-force in the place of thine consciousness,
shaking it free from the bonds of the night.

Place in thy mind-place the image thou desireth.
Picture the place thou desireth to see.
Vibrate back and forth with thy power.
Loosen the soul from out of its night.
Fiercely must thou shake with all of thy power
until at last thy soul shall be free.

The Steps

  1. Lay down flat on your back in complete darkness. Start by feeling the energy around you. Visualize your aura, this energy field that is always with you. This is your metaphysical body.

If you are having a hard time feeling your own energy try bringing your hands together about an inch apart from each finger tip, move them slightly apart and then back together over and over. You should first feel the warmth, when it starts to feel magnetic, you have found the energy.

2. Visualize the energy all around your body and bring your focus to your temples on either side of your eyes. Slowly start moving this energy back and forth from side to side on either side of your head.

3. Begin shaking your energy body. Shake it more and more, harder and harder, until finally your consciousness splits apart.

If the energy feels weak or if you can only slightly feel it, stay on step 2 and continue practicing before leveling up to vigorous shaking. You may need to practice this technique for several months if you are new to energy practice.

This technique will get you out of body with practice and if done properly.

Happy travels!!
