A look at the recent conferencet Plant Consciousness: Revolutionizing Our Relationship with Plants.
When I decided to join the Plant Consciousness event in London, I was still enjoying the traveling life in Peru. As I had slowed down to become more sensitive to the subtle life of nature, I was excited about these topics of consciousness, quantum physics, the amazing intelligence of the plant world and teacher plants such as Iboga and Ayahuasca.
Plant Consciousness, set in the beautiful Regents Park (the University Conference Center to be exact) with over 300 people in attendance, opened my mind. Opened to the wide range of sensing, seeing and hearing that exists in plants and trees, the direct influence plants have via chemical compounds in our brain – and therefore our mood and behaviours – and why and how to start listening to what plants, in essence our elders, have to say to us.
Even though I love being in nature, I was never that excited about the plant world. You see, the behaviour of plants is so subtle, that most people, including myself, failed to notice it for a long time. Or more accurately, we have collectively forgotten to notice it. But in fact, plants have intelligence and consciousness. As ethno-pharmacologist Dennis McKenna reminded us, we think a brain or at least a nervous system is necessary to be intelligent. But it is neural networks that are important. Mycelium root networks can be miles in diameter, and those are thinking neural networks.
Pam Montgomery pointed out that plants have a long view, as they have been around 400 to 450 million years, and in fact multiple scientific studies have proven plants have ability for memory. Let me remind you, the modern form of humans only evolved about 200,000 years ago, so if plants have intelligence and memory, they will hold a lot of knowledge for us.
Plants in Relationship to Human Intelligence
We have co-evolved and live interrelated with the plant world, and plants have a direct influence on our moods and behaviours, through our diets. Through photosynthesis an enormous variety of organic molecules is created, from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide, which is amazing in itself. The molecules in our brain that determine our moods and behaviour, such as dopamine and serotonin, are plant compounds.
Bonny Casel made the point that our right hemisphere, which sees the world as whole and interconnected, needs a plant-based diet to survive. Whereas our left hemisphere, which focuses on more narrow solutions, familiarity and separate parts, can get by with just simple low energy foods. A very interesting point in a world that is in crisis because of our worldview of separation. (It also reminds me of the famous TED Talk of neuro-anatomist Jill Bolte Taylor, who experienced the shut down of her left hemisphere during a stroke and gained some profound insight.)
Plant Senses, Consciousness and Cooperative Evolution
Bonny Casel is the owner and founder of the School of Natural Medicine UK and spoke of ‘Plant Senses, Consciousness and Cooperative Evolution in a Quantum World’. She managed to bring together plant biology, quantum physics, and the evolution of consciousness in a comprehensible way, and it was this glimpse of our true universe that blew me away.
In recent years the scientific community has gathered evidence that the plant world has a range of behaving, seeing, hearing and feeling, that goes wildly beyond what human beings can perceive. Just some examples, mustard plants that ‘hear’ the sounds of caterpillars eating on their leaves, excrete increased amounts of mustard oils to protect itself. It is also know that the human eye can only see a very narrow band of frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared and UV is out of our range. However plants sense UV light, magnetic fields, and planets in the night sky.
Plants can perceive emotion because they can sense body heat. Plants can feel something 1/8 the pressure, heat or cold of what a human can feel. Just look at something as simple as a plant adapting their direction of growth long before touching a rock on it’s path. Another fascinating behaviour is that in dense forests large trees feed little trees through mycelium networks, even more, they favour their own offspring in times of scarcity.
A Quantum World
Bonny spoke about quantum physics. Only 0.0000000000001 % of every atom is composed of protons, neurons, and electrons, the other 99.9999999999999% is empty space. That effectively means all the matter of humankind can fit into a block the size of a sugar cube. We are energy, however modern science is based on the visible world, and hardly on the invisible frequencies of waves.
Space is a profound part of the equation when we look at plant consciousness. -Bonny Casel
She explained the famous double slit experiment, proving that our human observation changes energy waves to particles, or, matter. All life is energy, and plants may just be more aware of this the us human beings, stuck in the limited view of just the material world. Bonny connected these insights to the therapeutic benefits of essential oils and flower essences, healing trauma and increasing health on the physical, emotional and mental level. I am leaving out a lot of information here, but starting to understand what plants can perceive and remembering that the universe is energy, was important to see the very real benefits of natural medicine for healing trauma and raising consciousness.
Ayahuasca, Iboga and Other Teacher Plants
Day two of the event revolved mostly around teacher plants. In the last 15 years or so, powerful teacher plants such as Ayahuasca, San Pedro and Iboga have been spreading globally. They have left their homes in Africa and the rainforests of Latin America to speak with a loud voice. As multiple crises are threatening life on earth, humankind needs to heal, raise consciousness and remember that we are one with nature.
Dennis McKenna spoke about Plant Human Coevolution Origins Of The Imagination, and the past and future of Ayahuasca. Like his brother, Terrence McKenna, he has been immersed in plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, culture, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. His view is that plants may have given us the ability to understand meaning and abstractions, the foundation for language, and the ability to share ideas across time and place. As our culture shapes our world more than anything, in the form of law, education, religion, and so on, this means the impact of teacher plants to the future of earth can be immense.
Yann Guignon came to the stage as a voice for Iboga. Iboga is a small tree native to west and central Africa, and is used both for spiritual purposes, as particularly a potential ‘interruptor’ for drug addiction. With it’s growing popularity and due to unsustainable practices, tabernanthe iboga has been declared an endangered species. Yann and his team have now taken the responsibility to preserve, study and share knowledge about this medicinal plant and the indigenous traditions of the Gabonese forest people, and can be followed on Blessings of the Forest.
Even though these teacher plants stand out, Pam Montgomery also helped us remember that in fact all plants are our teachers, as she connected us with the essence of the Ash Tree.
Nourishing Mind and Heart
is is just a glimpse of the weekend. Satish Kumar was there, earth pilgrim, former monk and long-term peace and environment activist. With his calm and humorous presence, gently reminding us of our interconnectedness ‘You are, therefore I am’. Kurikindi filled the room with emotion, as soon as he set foot on stage with his wife. He shared his heartfelt story of the threat to the Ecuadorian rainforest, his home, his family, and the abundance of plants there. Plants he studied and connected with all his life. Drew Dellinger wove together many moments with his rhythmic poetry, bringing odes to mother earth and the splendid universe.
Many other speakers and performers reminding us both of the times of crises we are in, and emphasising our responsibilities and relationship with each other and all living beings. Join Plant Consciousness on Facebook for regular inspiration on these fascinating topics.

The Mystery of Solitude is one of the greatest mysteries in our life. As human beings, we are social creatures and, without others around us from birth, we would not even be able to stay alive in this world. Social space plays a crucial role in the development of our personality, as the direction of our development is determined by the expectations of other people and our desire to meet those expectations. That is how we become a part of a collective, social space called society, and society receives its special nature from the culture it represents.
The book of our personal history is written in this social space, and our identity is built upon the foundation of our personal history. We are surrounded by other people, and their expectations and requirements are present in our mind when we are alone. Most people do not understand the difference between solitude and being lonely. Being alone is at the same time loneliness for us.The two words, however, mean two different situations. Solitude is the state of the mind, whereas being alone is the state of the Consciousness.
In the isolated state of consciousness of Ego-dominated mind we do not like to be alone, when we are alone, we think we are lonely, we find it difficult to tolerate, we try to avoid it. How we do it, depends on our temper and personal attitudes.
Extroverted people focus primarily on social life. When we are alone, we seek friends, go to parties, because we like to share our pleasures and sorrows with others.
Introverted people, on the other hand, tolerate loneliness much better, they like to be alone. They turn towards their internal world (thoughts and emotions). They are not alone, though, as other people are present in their mind in the form of their opinions and expectations. When they turn inward, they talk, argue with the opinions of others, and analyze the reactions of others. For an external observer, an introverted person might seem to be alone, but there is usually a whole little group in the head of the person. When an introverted person is alone, they try to find some activity to occupy themselves in order to avoid the unpleasant feelings that come with loneliness. They are capable of watching TV for hours, or use work as an escape route.
Why do people so desperately run away from loneliness, from being alone?
Because we do not know ourselves, so we do not like being alone. When we are lonely, we must face the fact that our entire personality is pretence, and our whole identity is built upon false foundations.
Even if these sentences are not formulated so specifically in our mind when we are on our own, the anxiety and depression overcoming us signify that there is something wrong with us. We feel lonely, so we escape so as to find shelter in the company of others or in our own thoughts from the negative emotions.
We feel lonely because we are full of insistence. We insist on our personal identity, our own history, in which the main roles are always played by others. Solitude is a menace to the foundations of our identity.
It is true that during our life we are often surrounded by other people, and we live our life as members of the society, but deep inside we remain separate, isolated individuals for the whole of our life. Very deep inside we are born alone, live alone and we die alone. Being alone like that is a state we interpret as solitude.
Only the awakening of the Consciousness is capable of putting an end to that sense of solitude rooted in our original isolation. Only when we have experienced that Miracle, do we recognize that loneliness is our natural state, in which the independent, still all-penetrating Presence shines on.

The waking up process is a very personal experience. Once we become aware of the existence of a fabricated world we thought to be real and that our true nature is anything but what we’ve been told, there’s no turning back.
It may appear to be a lonely path, but we are by no means alone in this awakening. It is happening in all walks of life. Whether a banker or corporate employee wakes up to the scam being perpetrated on humanity and pulls out of the matrix, or a normal taxpaying worker realizes they’re contributing to a military industrial machine hell bent on war, control and world domination, we’re all the same.
And those are just surface issues compared to the deliberate socially engineered suppression of man’s innate spiritual nature, whether we call it social liberty or the freedom to create and manifest as we truly are.
Triggers for Awakening
There are many such triggers that wake people up. When a child dies from a supposedly preventative vaccine, or becomes autistic for no reason, things change. Once someone realizes, for example, how the world was scammed on 9/11 and that the powers that be are willing to perpetrate such atrocities to promote their agenda, the digging begins in sincerity. When we realize we’re at the complete mercy of parasitic central bankers more than willing to not only implode the world’s economy, but finance both sides of any conflict for personal gain and control and that our governments are complicit in this scheme, we start to grasp the enormity of what befalls us.
In addition, that we have rapidly devolved into an advanced militarized surveillance police state is driving many to ask some hard questions – and the answers can be startling and difficult to swallow, especially when you realize they have cut off all avenues of recourse.
Another major issue is that it’s more evident by the day that our very health is under attack, again by complicit government and multinational corporations pushing GMOs, adulterated food, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, atmospheric aerosols and the like, all of which have been proven to be extremely hazardous to humanity. Yet they push harder by the day, mandating program after destructive program. Meanwhile, natural and organic farming and foods, as well as supplements, are under intense attack by these very same perpetrators.
The truth about these issues and many, many more including massive planet harming programs such as fracking, electrosmog, and the geoengineering assault on humanity are driving a major perceptual paradigm shift amongst all walks of life as we delve more deeply into who is doing all this and why.
There Is No “They” – Oh Really?
This is often the final breakthrough point for many people. As the true picture starts to crystallize, the horrific realization that the “powers that be” are fundamentally a clandestine cabal with front men comes into focus. These are powerful minions, more interested in total control and weakening and subjugating humanity via health degradation, dumbed down education, mindless “bread and circus” government controlled media, depraved violence and sex oriented entertainment, and a draconian militarized police crackdown. The ugly truth then comes to the fore.
It can be staggering. If you take just 9/11 and other false flag events and realize they were staged to bring about this Orwellian police state where the citizens are now terror suspects, it can be very difficult to swallow.
A quick perusal of history soon follows, where people realize these same false flag/false enemy tactics were used to justify almost every war, leading to such totalitarian states as Stalinist Russia, Communist China and Nazi Germany, each of which descended into horrific pogroms, decimating their own populations of anyone potentially daring to question the new regime.
It’s not all black and white. There are of course good people working for bad people, powers and programs, wittingly and unwittingly. Many are trying to change and improve our existing structure. Many good people are performing wonderful services within this overarching societal program thinking it can be changed constructively. What we’re addressing are the overarching deceitful and destructive powers and mechanisms at play that are attempting to bring humanity into a weakened subservient role to some sort of worldwide fascist control state, eliminating personal and national sovereignty to support and obey a very few powerful self-appointed elites.
And it’s coming on fast. The recent FCC takeover of the internet being a prime example of the internal version, while wanton wars proliferate unchecked while the economic and survival conditions of regular people continues to tank.
This becomes evident as anyone pursues almost any avenue we’re discussing here. To realize this massive program is being orchestrated by some form of “they” soon becomes obvious. The reality of the conspiracy that JFK so eloquently pointed out before he was surgically removed from office via assassination hits squarely home. Please listen to his entire speech.
We Have to Find Out for Ourselves
An essential element to a true awakening is investigating and learning for ourselves. One of the main control mechanisms has been teaching humanity to only trust what they’ve been told by these same agendized so-called authorities. How many times have you heard, “If 9/11 was an ‘inside job’, surely it would have been on CNN. If something was really wrong surely someone would have said something.”
Well, a lot of people have and continue to speak out. And what’s the response? Anything contrary to the official narrative is “outlandish conspiracy theories” as they parrot the phrase “you’re either with us or with the terrorists, which results in the subsequent demonization and marginalization of any form of questioning or healthy criticism.
Waking up from that media and education entrancement is another shocker. Could they do such a thing? Could we really be facing such a totalitarian crackdown? And why?
When I was young there were over 60 media companies vying for audiences. Real investigative reporting, although it’s always been tampered with or suppressed, was still available. Today 6 mega corporations own all of the media. The very same corporations that own much of the corporate military industrial and agra-pharmaceutical infrastructure. Conspiracy is not a stretch – of course these power brokers would twist information to suit their intentions.
The word conspiracy has been stigmatized for a reason – don’t ask questions or there will be consequences.
All of this will take some serious researching, most likely in places people have never dared to look before. And this is good. Don’t let anyone tell you what the truth is, find out for yourself and be convinced in your own mind and heart. That’s a new phenomenon for most, as odd as that may seem, but stepping outside the propaganda mainstream is a must. And it is oh so refreshing.
The Shock Does Wear Off – And Don’t Worry, We’re in this Together
There are so many interconnected “rabbit holes” of similarly repressed, twisted or hidden areas of information that it can be staggering. Once we realize we’ve been lied to about any one of these serious issues, we begin to question everything. And that is extremely healthy. You may not find support for your new found perspective from those around you, but there are millions who are sharing your experience. Thanks to the internet you can find others undergoing the same transformation quite readily and derive a lot of encouragement and support.
Battling through the naysaying of close friends and loved ones seems to act like a chrysalis, much like the cocoon a metamorphosing butterfly has to struggle to escape. And as we know, that is exactly what drives the blood into the wings of the birthing creation that will soon bear the beautiful new awakened soul to glorious new heights and vistas.
One thing that won’t wear off is your absolute disdain for what is being perpetrated on our fellow humans. As the expression goes, “If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention.” If you knew your home was under attack and malevolent forces were coming for you and your children, you would do anything in your power to protect your family. That soon becomes an innate awareness regarding the current toxic social and physical world we’re experiencing and the need for a conscious response.
Awakening Your Spirituality
This goes hand in hand with anyone experiencing this consciousness shift. If things here are so massively manipulated, what lies beyond all of this? What are we being kept from? Why do I sense I am so much more? Where does God or Love or human kindness come in? And for so many with some form of religious or spiritual background or understanding, the question always arises, “Is this some form of spiritual warfare?”
These are very important questions to pursue. There must be meaning in all of this. “Certainly all of humanity is not as wicked as these psychopathic control freaks.” Yes, that’s true. Unfortunately, the aggressor often rules the day in this hierarchy of control our world has adopted for millennia. History bears this out.
The beauty of gaining a new spiritual perspective is that it puts these influences in their place. We discover new ways to perceive our true indomitable nature which gives tremendous peace and confidence in spite of what we’re currently faced with. This sense of profound conscious awareness and spirituality only grows as our pursuit for truth, in love, gains momentum.
Awake, But Never Alone
A sense of isolation following the initial awakening is natural. It’s foreign to everything we’ve been taught, with implications that can be mind-boggling as well as heart breaking. However, we are very much connected and sharing a profound common experience. Knowing we are not alone is very important to keep in mind.
Building community also becomes a priority, where we can contribute to the healing of the planet at every level possible. Whether it’s activist or spiritual associations this is very important. It may only be on-line at first, that’s fine. Find kindred spirits and empowering and informative websites and blogs and even attend meet up events in your area on some of these subjects of concern.
This awakening of consciousness is transpiring at an accelerating pace, and it’s something to be very encouraged about. Once you get past the shock of what you’ve “found out” it becomes easier, but it will drastically alter your life.
Enjoy it, be empowered and take action accordingly. Trust your heart.
The darkness cannot put out the Light no matter how hard they try.
Please share this freely with those embarking on this magnificent journey.
A group of international neuroscientists and robotics engineers have discovered for the first time that human brains can indeed ‘talk’ directly to one another, even from thousands of miles away.
A brain-to-brain communication study conducted in coordination with Harvard Medical School has proven that extrasensory mind-to mind interaction can happen over great distances by leveraging different pathways in the mind.
The study, coauthored by Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and a Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, found that information can be successfully transmitted between two intact human brains from distances over 5000 miles apart.
The researchers were curious if one could communicate directly with another person, and tested their hypothesis by reading the brain activity from one person injecting brain activity into the second individual. You could call it a neuro-physical version of ‘instant messaging.’
“In the neuroscientific equivalent of instant messaging, Pascual-Leone, together with Giulio Ruffini and Carles Grau leading a team of researchers from Starlab Barcelona, Spain, and Michel Berg, leading a team from Axilum Robotics, Strasbourg, France, successfully transmitted the words “hola” and “ciao” in a computer-mediated brain-to-brain transmission from a location in India to a location in France using internet-linked electroencephalogram (EEG) and robot-assisted and image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technologies.”
Using electrodes attached to one person’s scalp to record their brain currents (electrical signaling) during a thought-action, the computer could interpret that signal and translate it to a control output like a robot or a motorized wheelchair.
The study required a second human brain on the receiving end. Participants who successfully transmitted the two words were between the ages of 28 and 50, and four participated in the study. One subject was responsible for the brain-computer interface (BCI) branch and was the sender of the words chosen for the study, and the other three were assigned the task of receiving the message with the computer-brain interface observing their brain-wave patterns.
Although EEG patterns had to be translated from binary code, the greetings ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’ were translated successfully and emailed as confirmation back to the sender in India from France. When the messages were sent, the subjects experienced brain stimulation as phosphenes, which are flashes of light, which occur in peripheral vision as a sort of morse code – as a sequence.
This corroborates findings that people know when a loved one has died even when they are thousands of miles away, and other strange phenomenon that seem to exist out of the time/space barriers we have accepted as limitations for person-to-person communication.
Perhaps we can ditch our cell phones soon, once we learn how to ‘talk’ straight to our intended recipients using just our minds.

Consciousness has been defined as many things to many people, but there can never be one encompassing definition to what it really is. However, there are several factual components that assist in its definition and allow us to assess our own level of consciousness. What level are you at?
Before reading this list, it’s important to understand that every person is at the level they are supposed to be. The is no good level or bad level, inferior level or superior level. The following is only a guideline and whether you reside in force or power, you are learning the lessons you have come for:
LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Each level of consciousness (LOC) coincides with determinable human behaviors and perceptions about life and God. Each level represents a corresponding attractor field of varying strength that exists beyond our three-dimensional reality. There’s a critical point within each LOC from which its field gravitates (or entrains).
The numbers on the scale represent logarithmic calibrations (measurable vibratory frequencies on a scale which increases to the tenth power) of the levels of human consciousness and its corresponding level of reality. The numbers themselves are arbitrary; the significance lies in the relationship of one number (or level) to another (e.g., Dr. Hawkins’ scale is from 1 to 1000; a similar scale could be devised from 1 to 10 where 2 is courage and 5 is love).
Dr. Hawkins points out that the two greatest spiritual growth barriers seem to be at level 200 and 500. Two hundred, the level of courage, represents a profound shift from destructive and harmful behavior to life-promoting and integrous lifestyles; everything below 200 makes one go weak using kinesiology. Currently, approximately 78% of the world’s population is below this significant level. The destructive capacity of this majority would annihilate mankind without the counterbalancing effect of the 22% above 200. Because the scale of consciousness is logarithmic, each incremental point represents a giant leap in power. As such, one person calibrated at 600 counterbalances the negativity of 10 million people below 200.
The second great barrier is level 500–Love. Love in this context is a way of being in the world–not an emotionality as most of us perceive it. According to Dr. Hawkins, the reason the level of love is so difficult to achieve is because our ego is so rooted in the physical domain as opposed to the spiritual domain, which emerges at 500. The 400s represent the level of reason, guided by the linear, mechanistic world of form (our modern society that includes advancements in medicine, science, government, etc). Interestingly, the top echelon of intellectual genius, including Einstein, Freud, Newton, Aristotle, etc., all calibrated around 499. The 500s represent a very difficult hurdle as only four percent of the world’s population calibrates in the 500s. This level denotes a shift from the linear, provable domain (classic physics or Newtonian physics) to the nonlinear, formless, spiritual realm.
It is important to understand that no level is better or worse than another. There are no opposites. The Map of the Levels of Consciousness represents a gradation of consciousness–degrees of the experience of Reality, the existence of God, and the level of lovingness that is present. The 500s (love) are not “better” than the 400s (reason); they simply represent another gradation (and a higher level of truth) on an infinitely growing scale.
A person’s LOC remains rather steady through the lifetime. Emotions come and go like the passing wind, but a person’s calibratable LOC is governed by specific energy fields in the nonlinear domain which generally doesn’t waver. Over the course of a lifetime, the average person’s LOC will change approximately five points (this is not a statistical derivation, but an average discovered through Dr. Hawkins’ kinesiologic research). However, it is possible for an individual (such as a spiritual aspirant) to have their LOC jump (or drop) hundreds of points in a single lifetime.

“It’s not the world that needs to change – it’s our consciousness we must raise.” – Rasheed Ogunlaru
To raise your consciousness gives you power to create a happier and fulfilling life. Its about opening yourself to newer possibilities, reconnecting with your inner self, embracing the divine within you and most importantly, free yourself from the pain and suffering that has been holding you down. It is a beautiful journey towards becoming more conscious in all aspects of your life. Heightened consciousness breaks the walls of perception, perceived reality, and false beliefs. Here are 11 ways to raise your consciousness.
1) Find yourself
Once Allen Ginsberg said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” To find yourself first learn about yourself. Finding the real you is an enlightening experience; you are not what the society has told you to be, or the titles given to you. Don’t try to be anybody else, and live in these false illusions. Falseness is a confused loop – a temporary shelter that lowers your consciousness.
You can’t hide there for a long period of time because there is no peace in living this way. Cut your ties with falsehood. Being honest with your self raises your consciousness. Don’t choose to be a canvas, rather be the painter.
2) Observe and reflect
Have the courage to observe and reflect. Some people choose ignorance that lowers their consciousness eventually. Internal reflection will certainly help you better understand your thoughts, emotions, and provide clarity in your current life situation.
It is an important step towards growth. Acknowledge your problems and seek solutions. Meditation is a good way to start the process, even for 20 minutes daily will make a difference in your state of consciousness.
3) Be compassionate
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” ― John Holmes
Practicing compassion can be one of the single most powerful exercises for boosting your level of consciousness. Compassion is an ability to acknowledge the emotional state of our fellow human beings. Several studies prove that people who practice compassion experience constant change in their brain and respond positively to stress.
Being compassionate towards yourself and others also helps you to not only forgive the other person but also overcome your own negative thoughts or emotions.
4) Don’t hold onto your past experience or your expectations
Understand the power of now and live in the present. Get absorbed into the current moment. Let go of the wretched feelings and negative emotions. Watch your pattern of being trapped into the past, and then break that pattern. Start doing something that makes you happy. Looking at the world from the window of your past is cheating on yourself. Your present is seeking you. Allow your mind to be conscious of the present.
5) Keep your ego in check
Ego is a small portion of the whole being. Consciousness is the higher self. Scientists have proven the fact that your consciousness never dies. Ego is like an infection to the consciousness, a hindrance that blocks the growth of consciousness. But it’s curable. Ego doesn’t let you take conscious decisions. Keep asking yourself – is it the real you or is it the ego that’s talking?
6) Destroy blockages
There are multiple blockages in your mind that act as an obstruction to attain a higher level of consciousness. Being judgmental towards the self and others, your inability to forgive, having trouble accepting the reality or past emotional blocks that has been suppressed within your subconscious. It exists like a barrier in your mind which you have to break down. Set yourself free from all the blockages. Break the walls. By doing so, you will cleanse the soul and your mind will start functioning at a higher frequency.
7) Spend time alone
“The true life is not reducible to words spoken or written, not by anyone, ever. The true life takes place when we’re alone, thinking feeling, lost in memory, dreamingly self-aware, the submicroscopic moments.” – Don DeLillo, Point Omega
It is important to catch up with yourself. Most of us consider loneliness as a threat or an occasion to fret in the void. Spending time with yourself allows the inner self to speak to you. Follow that voice. It’s your inner voice talking. Go on a walk to listen to your own thoughts, give gratitude for everything that you have in your life, listen to music, or get involved in a hobby that inspires you.
8) Step out of your comfort zone
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch
Step out of your comfort zone and into the discomfort of uncertainty. You never know what it holds for you. Get imaginative. Unravel new layers of your existence. Don’t feed your fear of falling or making a mistake. There is a lesson behind each stumble and fall. If you don’t step out of your comfort zone, you’ll never learn that lesson.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against It.” – Rumi
Some say love is a drive. Some say love is a vibration. The truth of the matter is that love cannot be labeled. It is far more sacred than these labels. Allow yourself to receive love and give love whole-heartedly and unconditionally to yourself and others. And in that whole-heartedness, you experience your consciousness expanding. You feel the bliss all around you.
10) Embrace nature
Connect with nature, the rustling leaves, colourful flowers, majestic trees, ever-changing clouds and fluid water. Be grateful for the nature around you because in time spent in nature never gees wasted. Feel a deep sense of peace and oneness within, and in that feeling lies the answers you seek.
11) Meditation and Exercise
Meditation opens up a direct link between yourself and the higher realms of consciousness. Simple meditation has tremendous benefits for the mind, body and soul. It can help you connect with your self, restore balance in your thoughts and emotions, lower stress and raise your vibrations, brings joy and clarity.

We have all heard the phrase “You are the Master of your own Destiny”. What this means inLaw of Attraction terms is that you create your reality and attract into your life circumstances that align to your current state of thinking. We all want to have the most amazing life possible (at least on a soul level – even if the subconscious is in conflict) – but do you have the ability to take the helm and steer your own life?
The Universe responds well to clear and strong manifestation requests coming from a place of confidence, empowerment and self belief. When you are strong and clear in yourself – the Universe can hear you and you are more likely to get what you want. But at the same time you have to make it happen for yourself and be able to take action steps that will get you there. It is the action that is the stumbling block for many. There is a desire, a wish, a dream – and then there is the end result out their in the ethers – as yet unmanifested – but in between is a gaping chasm that can only be bridged through the path of action which requires a degree of self mastery.
Self mastery is the ability to create for yourself what you want in your life from a place of clarity, whilst having the focus and determination not to yield to external distractions that will take you away from where you want to be. When you know what you want and you believe you can have what you want and you can do the action steps – you will receive or experience it.
So how can one become the Master of one’s Destiny and harness the Law of Attraction to its fullest?
Here are 5 basic steps that can greatly improve your ability to create your own life.
1. Recognize you have the power to choose. If you are not where you want to be – you have to narrow the gap through the power of conscious and clear choices. Your life is a product of your choosing and if you want to manifest well you have to be able to become aware of what you are choosing! If your subconscious is doing it for you – then you are at the mercy of the unknown. Make it a point to know yourself better.
Your whole life is the product of your choices.
Positively affirming choices take you closer to your ideal – negative choices take you further away. You can compound the power of positive choices to build a powerful field of intent that will attract positive circumstances into your life. If you believe you cannot choose – you are a victim and must then just hope for the best. Being a victim to outer circumstance is a power drain and not fun. Look to see where you give your power away externally. For as long as you do this – others will choose for you – every time – on their terms!
2. Make sure your life is on your terms. Your life has to work for you if you are going to create anything. Working on all levels. Work in work that works for you. Making the money that gives you the life that you want. Manifesting the clients that suit you.
Do a reality check and see who’s terms are running your life?
If they are not yours – you are not a Sovereign Being and you will be living the life stories of others.
Once your life is on your own terms – other people’s stories will not trouble you or sway you from your path. A LOT of obstacles on the path to creating your ideal life will have root causes in living on other’s peoples terms. To have the power to live your own life – take it back from those who you gave it to in the first place. Other people – if you let them – will put rocks in your path – when you least expect it.
Wow! Where did those rocks come from !?
Know what you want and make sure that you are in control of your own life – at all times.
3. Be Yourself. As you have the potential to become your own Master – the way to realize this is to be authentic to yourself. Do not be concerned about what others may think, what people want you to wear, what people want you to be like or worry about getting permission from the outside to be who you want to be. Just be yourself. If you are concerned about other peoples thoughts and opinions – there is some self-love work to do so that you can develop a stronger sense of self determination.
The Universe does not care for ‘hoop jumping’ or ‘people pleasing’. Please yourself and you will please those who respect and appreciate you. If people do not respect and appreciate you – the chances are you do not want them around anyway.
4. Be aware of dream-stealers. Make sure you do not share your manifestation wishes with those who believe you should not have it. If people would never consent to what you want – ask yourself what are you doing in their lives? There is a power in keeping one’s mouth shut in such cases.
Blabbing to the whole world about what you want will dilute your energy and prevent you getting what you want. What you will then get is a mixture of your dreams mixed in with a dose of everyone else’s dreams – whether agreeable or not!
Intent and focus is magnified when you strengthen up your energy field and cease being the loose cannon. Many of us like to post our wishes and dreams in Facebook groups so that we can get support in manifesting them – but it does not work like that. There are big Facebook Support Groups out there for Manifestors but the truth is that the words Manifestation and Support Group are a contradiction in terms. Only you can create your own life. You are responsible for it. No-one else can do it for you. If you are weak willed and ask others to help – you will attract into your life those who do not have your best interests at heart.
If you need support, hire a therapist first to sort out the emotional problems so that you can stand on your own two feet. Then think about using the Law of Attraction after.
5. Do not take crap or crappy behaviour from people. A big one but an important one. People like trying to crap over successful people because they hate their own life and feel envious, jealous or downright hateful. Learn how to deal with it and develop a thick skin. Be loving and soft on the inside and know when to share that – but make sure you have some protection in the world. Learn how to give karma back that is not yours and learn how to not attract crap in the first place.
Many philosophies talk about love and forgiveness but the real forgiveness is in releasing your emotional attachment to the story so that it no longer affects your life. Period.
The more you love and respect yourself – the less you will be presented with other people’s emotional crap. Once you have the above 5 in place – you are well on the way to manifesting your amazing and abundant life.

Living in this day and age where there are so many obvious changes and shifts on the planet through the weather upheavals, occupy movements, continual wars throughout the globe, coupled with the emotional instability of many in the nation, it is also true that many of us are waking up to something greater within ourselves. Perhaps you, too, have had unexplained experiences with the paranormal, time travel, out of body experiences, and the like and wish there was a place to get some answers. Following is a brief story and explanation of what is called a “parallel” reality. It is my hope that this article and others on my site help you understand the strange and mysterious.
West Side Story’s Many Sides
When I was around 12 years old, the movie premiere of the critically acclaimed theatrical production of “West Side Story” with Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Rita Moreno, was set to air on one of the local TV stations for the very first time. (This must have been in the mid 60′s as the true USA premiere was in 1961 in New York City.) My parents wanted the whole family to sit and watch the premiere together. They were so excited, telling the five of us how much we will love this movie, how wonderful it is, and ‘we are in for a treat.’ We were planning one of our movie nights, sitting together on the dense wool carpeted floor of our living room with our snacks of chips and cookies. My parents and the household overall kept the momentum throughout the day in preparation for this major event with one exception. Me.
Earlier in the day, floods of memories and total recall that we had already viewed this film began to fuel a strange dance between my parents and myself. Strangely, as I stood there arguing with my parents this fact, I could recall the entire movie’s plot line, visuals, story and dancing routines. Never having been to New York City in my life to see the theatrical version, it was impossible for me to have known this level of detail from the film. My parents were growing angrier and angrier at my insistence and I was growing more and more irate and angry at their lack of memory at their young ages. Truly, the concept that we had not seen the film did not occur to me at the time. I only knew what was real and true in my reality to me. The simple fact that they failed to remember this ‘monumental event’ was not my concern at the age of 12. After hearing over and over the words “that’s impossible this is the world premiere” and “what is wrong with you?”, the argumentative conversation finally dwindled to me succumbing to their belief that I was completely wrong.
It is time to cease caving into the limited tribal mindset around
the paranormal world, and phenomena i.e.,
parallel dimensional realities, time travel,
out of body experiences, remote viewing, bi-location and so on.
Years later I wondered if they thought I was going insane at that time of my life. During the movie, after settling down and ‘behaving’ once again, I heard their minced oath, “Thank Goodness you have stopped all this nonsense.” This showed me they feared something within me – perhaps a simple fear of the unknown – nonetheless I knew it was not a safe place in which to explore these deeper inner mysteries and it took several years before I came up with answers.
During that same time period I had a mental block around being able to tell analog time. (Digital clocks were non-existent in everyday households.) Coincidentally, during this same period of time, after dinner Mom would clear the plates and I was made to remain at the table and tell the time on the clock, a clock with only four digits showing and carved out of a large strangely shaped lump of wood covered with tons of glossy shellac. During this ritual I was repeatedly asked to report the time in which I stammered and could not answer correctly. My inability to tell the time was a growing concern for them as well. To this day I still have difficulty looking at an analog clock and telling the time. If someone asks me “What time is it?” I freeze up and look down at my watch and if its analog I take this long pause before giving the time, and sometimes I am incorrect.
What has had me wondering over the years, are two things:
Zone of Consciousness
Regarding time in and of itself (which by the way, is an interesting concept – time in and of itself), could time be relative to which you-niverse we choose to exist in at one time singularity? Is there such a thing as a time singularity or present-tense? Let alone a past-tense or future-tense? And if so, is it a type of zone of consciousness, i.e., a time zone of consciousness, that we choose to accept as our reality in the moment? And if no one else is there in the forest when a tree falls, does it make a sound? An illuminating discourse is presented through Mr. Michael Lockwood entitled The Labyrinth of Time: Introducing the Universe where he states:
“When looking up the subject of multiple universes I came upon the explanation: Multiverse: The multiverse [or meta-universe (metaverse)] is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes (including our universe) that together comprise all of reality. The different universes within the multiverse are sometimes called parallel universes. The structure of the multiverse, the nature of each universe within it and the relationship between the various constituent universes, depend on the specific multiverse hypothesis considered.” SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists that sweeps away one of the key objections to the mind boggling and controversial idea. Science fiction looks closer to becoming science fact, reports Roger Highfield.
The work has wider implications since the idea of parallel universes sidesteps one of the key problems with time travel. Ever since it was given serious lab cred in 1949 by the great logician Kurt Gödel, many eminent physicists have argued against time travel because it undermines ideas of cause and effect to create paradoxes: a time traveller could go back to kill his grandfather so that he is never born in the first place.
But the existence of parallel worlds offers a way around these troublesome paradoxes, according to David Deutsch of Oxford University (whom I would love to meet one day), a highly respected proponent of quantum theory, the deeply mathematical, successful and baffling theory of the atomic world.
He argues that time travel shifts between different branches of reality, basing his claim on parallel universes, the so-called “many-worlds” formulation of quantum theory.
The new work bolsters his claim that quantum theory does not forbid time travel. “It does sidestep it. You go into another universe,” he said yesterday, though he admits that there is still a way to go to find schemes to manipulate space and time in a way that makes time hops possible.**
“Many sci-fi authors suggested time travel paradoxes would be solved by parallel universes but in my work, that conclusion is deduced from quantum theory itself”, Dr Deutsch said, referring to his work on many worlds.
The mathematical idea of parallel worlds was first glimpsed by the great quantum pioneer, Erwin Schrodinger, but actually published in 1957 by Hugh Everett III, when wrestling with the problem of what actually happens when an observation is made of something of interest – such as an electron or an atom – with the intention of measuring its position or its speed.
In the traditional brand of quantum mechanics, a mathematical object called a wave function, which contains all possible outcomes of a measurement experiment, “collapses” to give a single real outcome.
“… the universe is constantly and infinitely splitting,
so that no collapse takes place.”Everett came up with a more audacious interpretation: the universe is constantly and infinitely splitting, so that no collapse takes place. Every possible outcome of an experimental measurement occurs, each one in a parallel universe.
If one accepts Everett’s interpretation, our universe is embedded in an infinitely larger and more complex structure called the multiverse, which as a good approximation can be regarded as an ever-multiplying mass of parallel universes.
Every time there is an event at the quantum level – a radioactive atom decaying, for example, or a particle of light impinging on your retina – the universe is supposed to “split” into different universes.
A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.
In this way, the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics allows a time traveller to alter the past without producing problems such as the notorious grandfather paradox.
“…there is infinite structure in what appears to be chaos.”But the “many worlds” idea has been attacked, with one theoretician joking that it is “cheap on assumptions but expensive on universes” and others that it is “repugnant to common sense.” ["Common sense"[?] or perhaps “Divine Sense” as in, “there is infinite structure in what appears to be chaos” i.e., chaos does not exist, as there is only Z integer (or the Z – ion (particle) … to me, this is the most simplest and most elegant of all explanations. This, in my opinion, fits with Max Tegmark’s explanation of the law of parsimony, or Occam’s Razor as it relates to multiple universes.]
Now new research confirms Prof Deutsch’s ideas and suggests that Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at Princeton University when he came up with the theory, was on the right track.
Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Prof. Andy Albrecht, a physicist at the University of California, Davis, said of the link between probability and many worlds: “This work will go down as one of the most important developments in the history of science.”
Quantum mechanics describes the strange things that happen in the subatomic world – such as the way photons and electrons behave both as particles and waves. By one interpretation, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be said to exist until it is observed.
Until then, particles occupy nebulous “superposition” states, in which they can have simultaneous “up” and “down” spins, or appear to be in different places at the same time.
According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by “wave functions” representing a set of multiple “probable” states. When an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of these multiple options.
But the many worlds idea offers an alternative view. Dr Deutsch showed mathematically that the bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting into parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature of quantum outcomes. This work was attacked but it has now had rigorous confirmation by David Wallace and Simon Saunders, also at Oxford.
Dr Saunders, who presented the work with Wallace at the Many Worlds at 50 conference at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, told New Scientist: “We’ve cleared up the obscurities and come up with a pretty clear verdict that Everett works. It’s a dramatic turnaround and it means that people now have to discuss Everett seriously.”
Dr Deutsch added that the work addresses a three-century-old problem with the idea of probability itself, described by one philosopher, Prof David Papineau, as a scandal. “We didn’t really know what probability means,” said Dr Deutsch.
There’s a convention that it’s rational to treat it for most purposes as if we knew it was going to happen even though we actually know it need not. But this does not capture the reality, not least the 0.1 per cent chance something will not happen.
“So,” said Dr Deutsch, “the problems of probability, which were until recently considered the principal objection to the otherwise extremely elegant theory of Everett (which removes every element of mysticism and double-talk that have crept into quantum theory over the decades) have now turned into its principal selling point.” SOURCE: TELEGRAPH UK
Critics argue that to postulate usually unobservable universes just to explain our universe seems contrary to Occam’s razor.
“A skeptic worries about all the information necessary to specify all those unseen worlds. But an entire ensemble is often much simpler than one of its members. This principle can be stated more formally using the notion of algorithmic information content. The algorithmic information content in a number is, roughly speaking, the length of the shortest computer program that will produce that number as output. For example, consider the set of all integers. Which is simpler, the whole set or just one number? Naively, you might think that a single number is simpler, but the entire set can be generated by quite a trivial computer program, whereas a single number can be hugely long. Therefore, the whole set is actually simpler. Similarly, the set of all solutions to Einstein’s field equations is simpler than a specific solution. The former is described by a few equations, whereas the latter requires the specification of vast amounts of initial data on some hypersurface. The lesson is that complexity increases when we restrict our attention to one particular element in an ensemble, thereby losing the symmetry and simplicity that were inherent in the totality of all the elements taken together. In this sense, the higher-level multiverses are simpler. Going from our universe to the Level I multiverse eliminates the need to specify initial conditions, upgrading to Level II eliminates the need to specify physical constants, and the Level IV multiverse eliminates the need to specify anything at all.” He continues “A common feature of all four multiverse levels is that the simplest and arguably most elegant theory involves parallel universes by default. To deny the existence of those universes, one needs to complicate the theory by adding experimentally unsupported processes and ad hoc postulates: finite space, wave function collapse and ontological asymmetry. Our judgment therefore comes down to which we find more wasteful and inelegant: many worlds or many words. Perhaps we will gradually get used to the weird ways of our cosmos and find its strangeness to be part of its charm.” SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
Relating to West Side Story… And Time
With this said, then I indeed went through to a parallel universe or dimensional space/time reality that had already happened a mere few minutes, hours, days or weeks prior to the space/time event of the world premiere event of our family watching West Side Story. In bringing back in to my current reality the full memory recall of the different reality I was attempting to understand the underpinnings of each reality I found myself connecting to and living within.
Clearly my experience be’tween both worlds (just two of multiversal probabilities) left me with many more questions for many years afterwards. Questions I am gaining insight and answers to through my spiritual quest and path. What my family ended up concluding about their reality-challenged daughter remains a mystery. Perhaps they have had similar experiences and have thought about the West Side Story experience.
… in every equation you will discover one constant
red [blood - coding] thread and that is YOU.
Perhaps a way to look at how to traverse through realities is by looking at finite-time singularity.
SINGULARITY occurs when one input variable is time, and an output variable increases towards infinite at a finite time. These are important inkinematics and PDEs – infinites do not occur physically, but the behavior near the singularity is often of interest. Mathematically the simplest finite-time singularities are power laws for various exponents, of which the simplest is hyperbolic growth, where the exponent is (negative) 1: More precisely, in order to get a singularity at positive time as time advances (so the output grows to infinity), one instead uses (using t for time, reversing direction to so time increases to infinity, and shifting the singularity forward from 0 to a fixed time ).
By looking at the diagram on the right, it reminds me of how we make a plus sign … +, by drawing a vertical line and then a horizontal line through the middle. What if that is incorrect and we must instead be drawing two 90° angles that may/may not intersect in the middle? What if that is the correct pattern and the shift comes in the center / zeropoint where we stop time/space and push it outward infinitely until we shift the zero point “output” to where we wish for it to be. Isn’t this the same thing that is written in the above example? If so then perhaps in addition to manifesting our wildest dreams isn’t it quite possible that we can also find the solution to Dr. Deutsch’s quest to discover how to hop time?
Whether you believe in multiple universes, realities, realms, or dimensional options … in every equation you will discover one constant red [blood-coding] thread and that is YOU. And it is the discovery of YOU which can make use of this information to further your own accelerated change towards super-intelligence and allow the true Holy Grail to occur within your mind as it fires off new neural net pathways creating an Arc of the Covenant from within. Achieving this space while remaining calm, grounded and centered throughout your spiritual path and life creations, in the end, is where we must gain our ground … for when we let go and let God … the how, when and where manifests themselves to perfection.

Today I wish to return to consciousness a number of curious aspects associated with the institution that we call “higher learning.” In the process, I’ll call into review certain facets of its design and briefly describe some of the inner-workings of this construct, as I see it.
There are many systems, levels, layers and sub-layers within this organized behemoth, this hulking monstrosity we call formal education. For my part, I am neither an expert on the topic nor am I a passively-unaware observer. As a former participant in the program, I have (like you) invested a great number of hours being “enlightened” by this brand of orthodoxy. In the aftermath, I have walked away with a number of insights and antidotes and yet, paradoxically, have been besieged with more questions than answers. But most importantly, I have walked away with what I value most – an opinion. Today, I will attempt to express this opinion in the form of a report, or, if you’ll pardon the expression, a report card.
Making the Grade
It starts with kindergarten for most of us. From there, we advance through “grade” school to intermediate or “middle” school, then on to “high” school. The linear road map suggests that we are indeed moving upward (or forward) to some higher level with each passing semester. This sensation of forward momentum is further exemplified by the (very real) physical growing process, biological changes, psycho/social changes, and shifts in our perceptions, attitudes and beliefs.
As we move forward within this construct, we are assessed on a semester basis with regard to our “grades,” “citizenship,” “behavior,” “work ethic,” and so forth. By now we have been told repeatedly about the “golden rule” and the curiously ambiguous “3R’s.” So if the reader will indulge me, I would like to further extrapolate on the “rules,” and while I’m at it, the “rule makers.”
First Rule: Law and Order
During the early years of education, when the grey matter is still very suggestible and malleable, children are bombarded with an excessive amount of structure and discipline under the guise of education. Since previous generations were also subjected to similar inundations and “initiated” into this system, parents are generally cooperative to this process and do not see it as unusual. So long as “Johnny” or “Sally” acquiesce and “toe the hypothetical line,” there should be no major problems or concerns.
But then there are those that sometimes “cross the line.” The system, it would appear, is aptly designed to quickly root out such young rebels. Children, for instance, that do not respond to authority will be swiftly dealt with. Similarly, the “day dreamer,” the right brain child who finds solace in his or her alpha state, the sensitive, and the aware will be severely suppressed within this environment. The advantage clearly goes to the “left” brain candidate who is continually rewarded for his or her obedience, dutiful performance, attention and adherence to authority.
Left Brain, Right Brain Conundrum
I speak of “left brain” and “right brain” not so much in the literal sense but as a metaphor. I think that we all agree that people consistently use both halves of their brain. There are dominant hemispheres (and for that matter dominant portions within respective hemispheres) and so one side may take some precedence over the other. The left side is said to function as the analytical, logical, mathematical and “obedient” half, whereas the right side conjures heightened creativity, intuition, morality and imagination. Obviously, both sides are crucially important.
People of exceptional ability are thought to have both hemispheres working harmoniously together. It’s been suggested that this harmonious balance is actually “normal,” but that the strict rules, rote memorization and disciplines associated with institutional learning permanently changes this balance to consistently favor the left side.
Second Rule: Correction
In those so-called “good old days,” corporal punishment was the method of correction in the classroom. If Johnny got too out of line, the principal or teacher would sometimes utilize this method. It usually involved “swatting” various parts of anatomy to invoke pain, shame, fear and, yes, obedience. The level and severity was limited only by the hand and judgment (or lack thereof) of the administrator. Lingering marks and welts were not unusual. These episodes would sometimes outrage some parents, whereas others would fully support them, and in some cases –”finish” the job when Johnny got home.
In more recent times the “switch and paddle” has yielded to the more civilized (though still highly corrective) methods of detentions, parent-teacher conferences, community volunteer requirements, and a whole host of various discipline procedures.
But ever so often, school psychologists are sought because it’s presumed that Johnny likely has a mental disorder. When children recognize that a doctor is examining them for “the way they think”, this is often sufficiently effective to instill a change – and not often for the better. The child’s self-examination process and the personal embarrassment that comes from the mere suggestion that he or she has a “learning disability” can create huge setbacks in the child’s self-esteem. Rest assured that the school psychologist will do their best to redirect Johnny onto a more fruitful course of order and compliance. He will be broken down and built back up numerous times, if need be – and in time he will begin to assimilate. But what if all attempts fail?
Then there’s Adderall – that miracle chemical substance designed to bring that left brain out to front and center stage. Johnny had best keep those arms and legs tucked in the ride at all times and abide by the rules, or he just might find his brain soaking in a pharmaceutical stew. If he fails to conform, considerable pressure will be brought upon him (and his parents) to permanently change his brain chemistry by insisting on mind altering “medication.” One way or another, Johnny will soon blend in with the rest.
I wonder if this is what was actually meant by “no child left behind.”
Third Rule: Rewards and Recognition
Assuming one survives the disciplines and teachings, endures the breaking down and building up, then before too long they are ready to enter that “higher” institution known as college. The most cooperative, ambitious and desirable will have been awarded financial assistance, either in the form of a grant, scholarship or recommendation, that will enable the student to continue his or her education without interruption and help to mitigate monetary burdens. This desirable candidate will be further groomed by professors and administrators and will ultimately be placed in areas of influence and regard. All other candidates will be strapped with student loans that will likely follow them around for half of their lives, or more. These debts cannot be discharged through a bankruptcy, so the (less than ideal) college candidate will have to get on the ball straight away.
Preaching from the Pulpit
Some professors call it “lecturing” and some call it “teaching.” My awareness draws me toward the more specific phrase of “preaching.” The professor has the luxury of an audience that’s been thoroughly vetted and processed through the system. Our illustrious instructor addresses his or her congregation of mostly “compliant” minds with aplomb and vigor; and these students often regard themselves as “empty and willing vessels” waiting to be filled. Perched high behind their lofty pulpit, the preacher-teacher proceeds to define what is real and …what is not.
The Institution of Academic Religious Authority
Here, within the impressive halls and ivory towers, rules of law and physical matter are essentially worshiped. The campuses are large and magnificent, sprawling buildings designed to inspire and instill awe in the observer, with symbols and statues that connote a slew of esoteric and exoteric meaning.
You’ll also find the Darwinian mindset and the general consensus that Humans are merely mammals with “large brains.” A sense of “inadequacy” looms over these halls as if this particular state of mind is somehow essential in cultivating higher learning. “Eco-worship” takes precedence over the Human condition, and conversations revolving around the adverse impact of “overpopulation” are standard fare.
Here we find the almighty skeptics and cynics, the critics, and, worst of all, the pious. They preach from their lectern with a voice of authority, credulity, but to the sensitive ear, they speak in rigid and negative tones. There’s a dull cadence to their rhythm, and they’re indifferent to opinion. Only admirers will be welcomed into this church.
Then there’s the yearly pilgrimage where the square hats pay homage to the institution and give nod to the products of their labor. Luminaries don their Saturnian robes and mortar board caps and commence “the word” to their flock of followers in the mass baptism that they call “graduation.” A sight to behold indeed.
And as far as those rebels go – most simply fall off the radar. But then there are the others:
Richard Branson, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Frank Lloyd Wright, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Mark Zuckerberg, Abraham Lincoln, Steve Wozniak, Henry Ford…
How often have we heard of highly successful business leaders and thinkers, celebrated inventors and writers, brilliant musicians and directors, who never completed college and sometimes not even a high school education? These individuals never got their “papers” that “certified” them as proficient in a given trade or profession. It should give one pause to ponder – what did they see that the 4.0 student did not?
I alluded earlier to a “report card” and so here’s a brief breakdown:
So far as the teaching establishment functioning as a “mind-control institution,” they clearly earn straight A’s. Kudos go to their brilliantly designed “left-brain entrainment” system and conditioning procedure. In fact, it’s so well designed that it’s almost as if some malevolent, other-worldly entity of extraordinary intelligence was involved in its creation. But I’ve digressed.
In all other aspects the institution gets D’s and F’s. I do not sense that formal education is malleable enough, humble enough and benevolent enough to provide an adequate fit for all children. Sorry – but one size does not fit all. Not even close.
I have spoken in sweeping terms and have characterized, generalized and even trivialized this topic. For that I ask forgiveness. And to any professors that I might have offended, please note that was not my intention. This is simply my interpretation of the educational process and how we have all been ensnared in the same copious nets that define its outer boundaries.
It’s not that I’m fundamentally opposed to the concept of higher education, as I have enjoyed, embraced and have personally benefited from the experience to some extent. As such, I deeply appreciate the efforts of supporting staff and faculty who assist the student in the re-learning (or re-remembering) process (as some of you know, I take the position that we already know everything but have forgotten how to remember), and the many humble professors who understand the limitations of higher learning. But I’m also well aware that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to the institutional aspect of this system.
Within the ivy walls of the institution of academic religious authority, all too often “right brain” individuals get thrown under the proverbial bus whereas the “left brain,” or the more obedient candidate, is rewarded. The division of the hemispheres serves somewhat as a microcosm representative of the “dualism” that’s prevalent all around us. I urge all Humans to remember the importance of establishing proper balance, the Yin and Yang, within the mind.
You have been programmed “institutionally” to favor your left side. This side represents obedience, or “doing what you are told regardless of what is right,” whereas the right side represents morality or “doing what is right regardless of what you are told.”
Somewhere in the balance, there is truth.
-Until Next Time.

We are being given gadgets that create a brain-computer interface, magnetic manipulation via“neural dust,” high-powered lasers, using light beamed from outside the skull, the implanting and erasure of memories, and even the direct uploading of the contents of our brain.
Despite all this, some have stressed that the brain is not consciousness; therefore, there is always a built-in protection that the aware mind can erect to thwart outside attacks. Neuroscientists, however, are now claiming for the first time to have found absolute proof that consciousness is completely dependent on brain structure. In fact, it can be identified as a literal on/off switch that can be physically tripped by electrical stimulation, thus closing down all awareness in an instant.
Here are some key passages from their findings:
In a study published last week, Mohamad Koubeissi at the George Washington University in Washington DC and his colleagues describe how they managed to switch a woman’s consciousness off and on by stimulating her claustrum. The woman has epilepsy so the team were using deep brain electrodes to record signals from different brain regions to work out where her seizures originate. One electrode was positioned next to the claustrum, an area that had never been stimulated before.
When the team zapped the area with high frequency electrical impulses, the woman lost consciousness. She stopped reading and stared blankly into space, she didn’t respond to auditory or visual commands and her breathing slowed. As soon as the stimulation stopped, she immediately regained consciousness with no memory of the event. The same thing happened every time the area was stimulated during two days of experiments (Epilepsy and Behavior, doi.org/tgn).
To confirm that they were affecting the woman’s consciousness rather than just her ability to speak or move, the team asked her to repeat the word “house” or snap her fingers before the stimulation began. If the stimulation was disrupting a brain region responsible for movement or language she would have stopped moving or talking almost immediately. Instead, she gradually spoke more quietly or moved less and less until she drifted into unconsciousness. Since there was no sign of epileptic brain activity during or after the stimulation, the team is sure that it wasn’t a side effect of a seizure.
Koubeissi thinks that the results do indeed suggest that the claustrum plays a vital role in triggering conscious experience. “I would liken it to a car,” he says. “A car on the road has many parts that facilitate its movement – the gas, the transmission, the engine – but there’s only one spot where you turn the key and it all switches on and works together. So while consciousness is a complicated process created via many structures and networks – we may have found the key.” [emphasis added] (Source and full report can be found here.)
Professor of neuroscience, Anil Seth, is one who urges caution about drawing conclusions from just one patient who already had an organic deficiency. However, the claustrum was the exact area that Francis Crick (who identified the structure of DNA) and his colleague Christof Koch had focused on in 2005. Though Crick is now deceased, Koch summarized the significance of such findings.
“Ultimately, if we know how consciousness is created and which parts of the brain are involved then we can understand who has it and who doesn’t,” says Koch. “Do robots have it? Do fetuses? Does a cat or dog or worm? This study is incredibly intriguing but it is one brick in a large edifice of consciousness that we’re trying to build.”
It is that typical scientific reductionism which finds these arguments appealing, just as Koubeissi stated above that he would liken the human organism to a car with there being a similar ignition switch to put all parts in motion – the claustrum. Just like a machine, consciousness can also then be physically built – or torn down.
Others such as researcher Jon Rappoport see a logical fallacy built into conventional scientific thinking because they already assume what they are trying to prove – that the seat of consciousness is somewhere in the brain and could not be non-material.
And yet a wide body of scientific and spiritual research into the role of frequencies, the holographic, quantum, and multi-dimensional nature of the universe seems to suggest that human consciousness is almost certainly non-material; or, at the very least, both.
As conventional scientists continue drilling further into the workings of what they assume to be a human machine, reducing us to ever smaller parts, they are acknowledging that there is something special hinting at a conductor that makes it all work. If that conductor is orchestrating from within, then it can be replaced through direct mind control. If it comes from without, it is free to roam and communicate through all time and all space, and be forever free from all attempts to build the material prisons desired by technocrats.

It’s amazing how our imagination has been minimized into an idea implying almost random superficial options when it contains the secrets of the Universe. What we appear to imagine is what makes our world the reality it is. It’s not “apart” from anything as they would have us to think. It’s our innate life force at work.
That’s why it’s quenched and severely channeled into other influences’ conceptual constructs to suppress our own realizations that might contradict the social narrative, which they know it is, as long as they define it, and hence they utilize it accordingly.
Any quick perusal into the world of artistic creativity or sincere investigation into theoretical scientific breakthroughs will verify this fact. Yet for humanity as a whole? Imagination is confined to a separated state of almost childish un-reality, relegated to fables, cartoons or carefully scripted sci-fi scenarios.
Yet social engineers use this tool as if it were a defined reality.
The Power of Imagination
Our most profound example of imagination is the holographic world we live in. It was imagined, then scripted and engineered to be the way it is. All with humanity’s cooperation, until now. There’s no lack of knowledge of this fact on the part of the social architects. Created realities according to the whims of overpowering forces have been in place since the dawn of so-called “civilization”.
Why? Because it works as a containment system. Humanity will stream to an overarching, compelling meme when it’s given as the only “accepted” option, and they’ll do it time and time again until they wake up.
This is exactly why each of us, on an individual and eventually collective level, must tap into and trust this imaginative source of inspiration. It comes in many forms, and learning to listen to and yield to it is a life long process. It can be imagining a new life for yourself, a new world for all of us, a new invention that will help humanity, a new way of living in harmony instead of conflict, a whole new way of thinking…the list goes on.
Why They Try to Suppress It – But Can’t
When you catch on to the overall plan for control and domination by a controlling few it can be a bit daunting. But guaranteed, your heart, mind and imagination are kicking in big time with ideas for solutions and personal and social remedies. It’s simple nature operating in the flux of conscious awareness. The realization that the flow of what you’re experiencing is contrary to those around you is actually a healthy response, as we live in a world of strangely manipulated inhabitants in varying stages of social hypnosis.
They know they can’t suppress conscious imagination, so they resort to co-opting it in directions that suit their purpose. Religion is a perfect example. You are hungry for spiritual fulfillment and lo and behold someone with “authority” espousing something similar to your personal revelations and desires appears – presto! “This must be the way!” This may be a bit linear in its reasoning but it’s nonetheless true – parasitic forces want to not only divert your imaginative creative spiritual force, but utilize it in a nefarious way.
This might seem over the top to some but history in all its forms bears me out. The empowering aspect is how humanity keeps sprouting new buds and whole branches of alive, empowering alternatives to this engineered status quo. Many will never submit to this reality into which they’re being manipulated, and millions are already becoming aware of this fact or are in the process of waking up to it.
Imagine and Manifest
What we feel and know in our hearts and creative spirits and minds is as real as anything we’re able to see, feel or touch. When we act on our personal sense of “realization” it then becomes real, very real in this particular reality we’re each experiencing. Again, the scientific analogy or example is a good one; if you take even a cursory look at quantum physics or the discoveries of “great scientists”, they are based on imagined ideas. How they’ve since hijacked scientific thought into a separate reality is another story, but the outlet to discovery has clearly been affirmed in spite of the controllers.
Such are our lives. We are following, in most cases, predetermined courses for whatever reasons. When we take control of the helm, life changes rapidly, but it’s all based on our allowed informational input, and willingness to see “outside the configured imprint”.
Are we pre-programmed? Or will we let imagination lead us into the deep, pure waters of Truth?
It’s up to each of us.
The Spirit Science
As we look at this week’s evidence of gravitational waves and cosmic inflation, it’s becoming increasingly hard to believe that the observable universe we live in is the only universe there is. Even modern science is laying down its “knowing” cap in the face of such a grand and complex puzzle. The makeup of the universe, including all that we cannot see (which is roughly 99% of the Universe).
Putting aside the hopelessly three-dimensional questions inflation raises, it’s unlikely that the story of the entirety of the cosmos (memorably defined by Carl Sagan as “all that is or ever was or ever will be”)happened to begin with the oldest event we can record, and happens to extend only to the furthest horizon we can see. If anything, Science is beginning to accept that it may very well have been the beginning of the latest “Cycle” of Universe, of which before that was an infinite number of creations and manifestations in so many forms that not even taking DMT can create a comprehension of what that might look like.
But of course, we want to bridge this into Testable Science, beyond the realm of Theory and Philosophy – in order to take our understandings and use them to create better ways of life.. And so we ask the questions. What does the rest of the cosmos—or, as theorists are more likely to call it, the rest of the multiverse--look like?
Rebecca Turner, World Of Lucid Dreaming
Here are 10 things you (probably) didn’t know about the wonderful phenomenon of lucid dreaming – the ability to have conscious awareness during your dreams.
1. The first lucid dreams were recorded by Ancient EgyptiansThe Egyptians were an advanced civilization which coalesced more than 5,000 years ago.
According to Jeremy Naydler, author of Temple of the Cosmos: The Ancient Egyptian Experience of the Sacred, they believed in three bodies: Shat(the corpse body), Ka (the living physical body) and Ba (the soul).
Arjun Walia, Collective-Evolution
One of the most popular questions today is “are we alone in the universe?” Believe it or not, you’re in the minority if you believe that absolutely no intelligent life exists in the universe. In the United States alone, at least half of all Americans say that we’re not alone in the universe. Fifty percent of Americans already believe that there is some form of life on other planets, while only seventeen percent think that there isn’t. A quarter of Americans believe that intelligent extraterrestrial visitors have already come to Earth and have been doing so for a long time. (source)

Why Are We so Different from the Other Species? Are humans Alien to This Planet?
There are U.F.O sightings and E.T. encounters all over the world every day but despite this fact most of us are still on the fence in regards to whether or not aliens actually do exist. Alien crop circles incessantly appear in farmer’s fields all over the world, especially in England and this ‘could’ be an attempt by aliens to contact us. The evidence is insubstantial as far as we know and therefore not enough to prove the existence of Alien visitors to Earth, however, I have another question I wish to pose: Are Humans Alien? Where do humans come from?

Is it possible that some races have traveled back from the future in order to change the outcome of their physical evolution? If so, can we follow the clues to find out how our future will unfold and how would the present affect the outcome?
“Give up worrying about the past. Give up dreaming of the future. The past no longer exists. The future has not been born. But deeply observe the present moment, just as it is, and you shall attain the peace and unity of the ancient masters.” –Buddha, Bheda Karata Sutta
The concept of spacetime in cosmology is a construct which combines space and time to a single abstract universe. Mathematically it is a manifold consisting of “events” which are described by some type of coordinate system. Typically, the three spatial dimensions of length, width, height, and the temporal dimension of time are required. Time is simply an arbitrary measurement of the motion of objects through space. For us on Earth, time is based on the 365.25 days it takes for the planet to make a complete orbit around the Sun, and the 24 hours it takes the planet to complete a rotation is called a day. Besides the day of 24 hours, or 86,400 seconds, the word “day” can be used for several different spans of time based on the rotation of the Earth around its axis.

“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.” - Nikola Tesla
Inner silence is the key to penetrating this core of knowledge in the universe.
Human beings are like onions. We have layers which are mental/emotional energetic layers within us with obscure our genuine self. As children and babies we have no layers. We are pure and unadulterated infinite consciousness. Then as we are filled with information over time, this clutters up our mind and we lose awareness of our inner truth and our natural ability of processing energy (emotional processing) is diminished or halted altogether and we start to form layers and layers of ego
Meditation is becoming very popular lately. Perhaps it’s the anecdotal evidence friends are sharing with each other or the fact that more and more science is coming out to confirm the benefits of meditation that it’s encouraging people to take up the practice. Meditation has shown to decrease stress, increase happiness,quality of life, increase gray matter in the brain, making people more compassionate, lowering blood pressure, increasing memory and more. A great series of benefits from such a peaceful practice.
Meditation can be discouraging at times. It’s not easy to calm your mind, stop the thoughts and get into a space that is quiet. Since many of us, especially in western culture, are never taught to explore this practice at a young age it can be even harder to get into a quiet meditative space realizing that we are not our thoughts or mind. If you are discouraged you can get some tips here. If you are looking for some great ways to get into meditation, you can check these out.
Since the Galactic Central Sun alignment in December 2012, many human beings are experiencing a powerful and profound awakening to their true nature as Multi-Dimensional Immortal Beings of Light incarnating in physical form. The convergence of the 3rd and 5th dimensional frequencies is causing all kinds of shifts in consciousness and making it significantly easier to have an ‘Enlightenment experience’ – similar to the experience that the Buddha had. What was once a rare experience is now more commonplace as large numbers of humans are having the opportunity to clear lifetimes of karma in this lifetime. Clearing all of our karma in this lifetime is sufficient to enable the experience of Human Enlightenment – the recognition of our inner Awareness as the True and Absolute Reality.
As our vibrations increase, we can have all kinds of miraculous awakenings, joyous realizations and deep healings that may appear to be Enlightenment. Beautiful emotions and major transformations can be life-changing – and can often be mistaken for Enlightenment.
The fact of the matter is, human beings are magnificent. One of the most important things that we need to change in order to experience this aspect of ourselves is our perspective on learning. For example, how can we learn from the perspective that we have all knowledge within us, instead of the perspective that we are empty until knowledge is installed from the inside out? In other words, how can we practice learning from within?
We have been conditioned to believe that we are empty beings in need of filling. We have been told that we are born as a blank slate (‘Tabula Rasa’), and that we must learn in order to equip ourselves with knowledge that was inherently lacking.
But is this even true? Or is this assumption in light of recent discoveries in need of revision …
You may already be aware that there are different levels of consciousness and that consciousness evolves from lower to higher levels of awareness. You may also know of the “universal consciousness” that connects and affects us all. Did you also happen to know that planetary bodies also have consciousness? Ancient traditions all over the world have long been aware of this, which is why they assigned planets with particular archetypal personalities, the remnants of these are still found in astrology. I’d like to discuss our planet’s consciousness evolution and what it means for us.
Each and every one of our negative habits, be they thinking habits, behavioral habits, or emotional habits, we can condition ourselves out of by creating new habits through repetition. Not only does this have an effect on who we are and who we become, but it also has an effect on our biology, specifically, our brain and is therefore an effective method of increasing intelligence.
The biological component of repetition of new habits and behaviors is fascinating and inspiring because when we change our thoughts and persistently practice new habits (behaviors or skills), we also retrain our brains. We formulate new neural pathways, make new synaptic connections, and veritably enhance the part of our brains which corresponds to what we are practicing.
Learning a new language enhances the language and memory centers of the brain, while chess would develop centers relating to memory, and problem solving, and so on. But the fact of the matter is this: by choosing to think in new ways we literally transform and improve our brains, and thus our mental faculties.
When we think in new ways, our neurological pathways change. This is significant because it opens the doors to new potential and new abilities within us. These new neural pathways are the biological component of new thinking patterns. Our thoughts once again are shown to influence the physical world in definite ways, and they literally change our biology.
New research is validating the neuroplasticity of our brains, meaning that our brain’s are not hardwired. We do not have a set neuronal structure which is determined at an early age and remains fixed throughout our lives. Instead our brains are constantly changing.
A fascinating idea that was put forth by Rudolph (Rudy) E. Tanzi and Deepak Chopra in their new book Super Brain, is that because our brains are constantly changing, and we can consciously rewire and develop our brains in new ways simply by learning new things, learning must equate with evolution.
Therefore conscious learning is conscious evolution.
Though our brains do not evolve randomly because it is not our brains which choose what to think. We have the ability to choose our own thoughts, and in essence, we as pure consciousness choose what to think, the thought appears, and that manifests itself in our body as neurons firing in a specific pattern.
What this means is that your brain is malleable. It is always changing, and it is you who decides exactly in which way it changes. Your intention to learn something new, to learn a new skill or master a new subject or a language, is what ultimately determines the capabilities of your brain. In another way, it is likely that you are the only one who determines your intelligence, abilities, potential, and creativity based on either the limitations you set for yourself, or the limitations you choose to overcome.
A New Relationship with the Brain
Negative thinking in regards to our memories and our minds, saying the we ‘aren’t smart enough’ or that we have ‘poor memories’ for example, is just a way of conditioning our brains to not be intelligent and not have powerful memories. For one because when we think that way, those thoughts manifest as our biological and neurological reality. Secondly because when we believe in those limitations we don’t put ourselves in the position where we can condition our brains to grow in new ways.
Take language for example. It is ironic that some people say they are ‘bad at languages’ when the majority of people can speak their native tongue just fine. A very small minority are genuinely ‘bad at languages’, whereas the rest of us are not. We simply believe we are bad at languages and therefore haven’t studied them. The combination of our avoidance of them, self-doubt, and our resulting lack of persistence, passion, and desire in our pursuit of new language skills means that we never give ourselves and our brains the opportunity to become good at languages.
But if we take the time to recondition our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions by putting ourselves in new circumstances and adjusting along the way, then we can retrain our brains literally and develop new skills and neural connections which will help us improve at whatever we have decided to do/learn.
Thus we are increasing intelligence in whatever form we are specifically cultivating it.
The biological component of habits I find truly fascinating and inspiring because it displays perfectly that we are not our biology, and that we have no limitations. Our brains develop in whatever way that we choose to develop them with our conscious decision to learn new things, and to think consciously by practicing mindfulness.
The key here is persistence. If you want to learn a new skill but doubt yourself and never try in the first place, of course you will never succeed. “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” is a well-known saying it basketball, and it is absolutely true. How can you succeed if you are not willing to give yourself a genuine opportunity to?
How are you going to learn something new and tap into your potential if you do not give your brain the time to form new neural pathways in order to accomplish the tasks you are setting for yourself and your brain?
It doesn’t matter if you fail, just keep on trying. We have to give ourselves time to adjust to new skills and ideas which are literally new ways of thinking. It doesn’t matter if you are learning a language or learning a form in martial arts. Until you have programmed your subconscious to perform these skills it requires conscious thought.
We tend to forget that all that we are able to do now was only acquired through persistent practice and conscious thinking over time. You don’t have to think about walking now, it comes naturally. But at one time you did. At one time you had to focus every ounce of your attention on putting one foot in front of the other while maintaining balance.
But in time you developed the neural pathways in order to do this easily, and with repetition you programmed your subconscious to do this task so naturally and effortlessly that you no longer need to think about it. The thing is, you have the potential to develop your brain and to program your subconscious to do virtually anything at a high level and with this same degree of naturalness and effortlessness if you would train your brain in such a fashion. As Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi said in Super Brain:
“The brain isn’t daunted by its endless tasks. The more you ask it to do, the more it can do.”
Can you be certain that you are unleashing the full power of your consciousness? Or are you trimming your true potential due to some unfounded beliefs about your intelligence and abilities? Can you be absolutely certain that you are tapping into the full potential of your brain?
If not, what is getting in your way?
Attitude, and Your Reaction to Failure
You can literally rewire your brain simply by persistently working to reinvent yourself. This is the key to personal transformation, and it is merely a riveting symptom of personal reinvention that your brain changes as a result. One that provides some definiteness and form to what is usually a mysterious process.
You can overcome every single one of your limitations and turn all of your weaknesses into strengths if only you would disregard the belief that it is impossible to do so, and change your reaction to failure.
There is a man named Arthur Boorman who inspires me greatly. He was a paratrooper whose back and knees were seriously injured after too many jumps in the Gulf War. They took their toll and he couldn’t walk without knee braces and canes. But at 47 years old he decided to change all that and by practicing yogarelentlessly he lost 140 lbs in 10 months, and more importantly, not only could he walk, but he could run again.
His story warms my heart because it displays the true potency of the human spirit to accomplish the impossible. His doctors told him he would never walk again, and even most yoga teachers turned him away because they didn’t think they could help him. And he proved every one of them wrong. He said “just because I can’t do it to-day, doesn’t mean I’m not going to be able to do it some-day.”
And it was because of this attitude that he radically transformed himself.
The most important thing is that we maintain this attitude. As children most of us did not care if we failed at something. We just tried until we got it. What would the world look like if babies got discouraged after falling down a few times and just decided to never walk!
I have found personally that I have applied this attitude to some areas of life and achieved fantastic results, whereas with others I have not applied it with as much determination and thus I have remained stagnant. To counteract this, continually learn new things. Always have something new that you are learning how to do, or be challenging yourself in a couple diverse areas of your life.
For example have a physical challenge where you are learning something new with your body and training your body in some way. Have an intellectual challenge or two such as a new language or simply a book on a new subject you are interested in. And then have some spiritual development/personal mastery goals and intentions such as a daily meditation practice, practicing non-attachment, or tightening up your life.
When we consistently challenge ourselves in new ways and in diverse areas of our lives we train ourselves to be comfortable with change and to enjoy pushing our boundaries in every way as we overcome any and all perceived limitations. This is a desirable state to be in because it creates the conditions for life-long growth and a perpetual expansion of consciousness.
So long as we do what we are passionate about and continue to challenge ourselves in those areas consistently, we will eventually come to realize personal mastery. Both in our chosen craft or pursuit, and in general. Mastery isn’t an achievement, but rather a state where we can do anything. Where we can face any challenge, any fear, any obstacle, and overcome it.
True mastery has nothing to do with any kind of talent or specialized knowledge. It is simply the ability to override lower impulses such as fear and doubt, and to follow our passions and inspirations with enthusiasm, confidence and flexibility.
When we can do this we can achieve anything, for our brains always respond to our attention and to our will. Science has proven that new thoughts, new thinking patterns, new emotional responses, and new skills create new pathways in the brain and thus they make the brain better, more intelligent, and more proficient at doing whatever we have chosen and trained ourselves to do.
The brain is capable of making a quadrillion synapses, which is one million billion synapses, therefore the number of possible neural connections that the brain is capable of making is 10 to the power of one million. Whereas the estimated number of particles in the entire universe is only 10 to the power of 79 (a 10 with 79 zeroes after it). (Super Brain) Can we be certain that we are at the epitome of human development, let alone personal development?
How much more can we get out of this biological computer that we are operating with the right training and attitude? I do not believe that we have any limitations. I am not so much interested in proving that to you, rather, I would like you to prove that to yourself.
“Never underestimate what you can accomplish
when you believe in yourself.”

Absolutely everything is a wave of energy and there are many new energies taking place on Earth. We’ve shifted consciousness, but we’re still using old reflections to create our reality. Abundance in all aspects of life is now much easier to achieve in the new vibration and a confidence in our abilities will soon magnify to great levels in the coming years. There will be some obstacles and challenges ahead, but know that the following shifts in our being are happening right now as all humans are born into spiritual wealth without practice.
Vibrating frequencies build a virtual construct that makes you think you are in a physical world, but you are not. You are in a holographic universe which is an illusion so well designed, that only the highest beings of light can see it for what it is. This is your destiny, but now you will continue to play this game called Earth at a level never played before. You are still playing with three dimensional rules in a fifth dimensional world, but you’re quickly learning how to make the transition by shifting energy.
Think about all the areas of wellness, whether they be physical, mental, social, lifestyle, morals, the spiritual aspects of life (e.g. new age, Western religion, Eastern spirituality)…they are all enveloped and affected by energy. How you think, feel and act is all energetic.
Right or wrong, black and white, good and bad don’t really exist, but we still need the duality to continue the game in its current form. You will soon discover that everything is a shade of grey.
The most important thing you can do right now is little the what is whispering to your heart. It won’t shout to get your attention so you must listen very closely to the messages you are receiving.
6 Shifts in Consciousness We Are Experiencing Right Now
1. THE REALIZATION OF THE ETERNAL NATURE OF YOUR BEING
You are immortal in a physical vessel which you decide is mortal. Your physical vessel does not need to die, but you have come to accept that it will, so it does. There is a balance of well-being that is certain for all of us. You all have a shared pain and part of the process of integration is the understanding of why it exists. Illness is not always a sign that there is something wrong. To acclimate to new energy, many of you have chosen to push through these physical barriers first. You have been conditioned that you must all naturally contract diseases and take drugs to fix them. This is not so.
You WILL know the eternal nature of your being and you will enjoy putting down your burdens and stop struggling to defend and guard against things you feel have gone wrong and must be made right. This is where most of your pain resides. You will learn to love knowing that you don’t have to fix your planet or anybody else and that everything is just as it should be. You will come to know that your governments are exactly where they should be as are all your diverse beliefs and desires. Things do not have to change for you to be who and what you came here to be. It is then and only then that all the “fixing” required by your egos will actually occur, but you will also know that in reality, nothing ever needed to be fixed. You will let go of any resistance and hold yourself in steady alignment. Will it not be a magnificent moment when humanity can just be without having to be something else? This is where you are headed because you are divine beings of light and you have become masters at this game you call Earth. You no longer need to allow fear and resistance to subject your life to pain. You are moving away from this and transitioning more to love.
2. SHIFT IN VITAL AND SPIRITUAL ENERGY
Vital energy makes up about 70% of total subtle energy and sustains the physical body, mind, intellect and ego. It is distributed through subtle channels which connect at special points of intensity most popularly known as chakras. This constructs the physical (voluntary and involuntary actions) and the subtle body (conscious/subconscious mind, intellect and ego). It is prevalent throughout the body and supplies energy to the cells, nerves, arteries, lymph etc. Some concepts relating to the subtle body are partially understood by scientists, but the level of understanding has always been rudimentary. That is now changing.
Spiritual or Kundalini energy lies dormant in a person until activated. These concepts cannot be measured with current technology. Those who have practiced meditation and spiritual principles at the qualitative and quantitative level have assisted in the continual grace of principles that leads these Kundalini forces on the right path. However, the shift in global frequencies and fifth dimensional concepts is allowing all of humanity to earn spiritual wealth simultaneously and without the efforts that were once necessary. In the past, people had to work hard to amass spiritual wealth. Now, it will be as if all humans are born into spiritual wealth without practice. You have received a magnificent upgrade that is allowing this energy to be activated by simply embracing the being that you are. It is leading to spiritual growth at an accelerated rate.
3. ENERGETIC HARMONY
Imagine creating a unified harmony through 800 trillion cells and vibrating them into health and well being. Humming itself produces overtones which can heal your mind, body and spirit. You will begin loving your voice and humming or singing from day to day to assist in accelerating your spiritual growth. It will come natural to you. You will begin feeling mystic silent overtones vibrating through your cells and body. This will also awaken your deepest desires to be unified with overtones of love and help breakdown stiffness and pain and facilitate your spirit body to flow.
As you begin to breakdown the veil, you will realize you have a shared pain on this planet and it is not your own. It is connected to everyone and everything. There is beauty in that shared pain and you will learn to see it for what it is through energetic harmony. You will move past specific body pain you thought was your own when it was actually part of the collective. Once embraced, this pain will cease to exist. You will let this pain go because you will understand its origin. Many of you will heal from pain and disease in ways you will think are miracles, but it will be simply the miracle of who you are and nothing more.
4. ENERGETIC CAUSATION
What scientific studies have failed to address on the planet is causation. They have tried through many different methods to obtain conclusive results in their scientific research through a countless number of double blind, placebo controlled and random studies which are considered the highest standards for scientific experiment. We can tell you that there has never been one published scientific study based on this standard that has identified causation beyond sub-atomic levels. Yet it is precisely those levels that cause everything to manifest in the physical body as it does.
Scientific studies can only derive correlations because they do not address energetic causation which is the underlying mechanism behind every single experience and event whether physical or non-physical. 100% of your diseases are based on energetic components within your field. There is NO other cause of disease. Diseases are primarily third dimensional experiences and will cease to exist when you learn to remain at higher dimensions, and you will.
This will be a big one for scientists as many will learn in the coming decade to factor energetic principles as causation before initiating any study. You will all begin to have a better understanding of the effect of energetic resonance and the effects on all physical things. This will revolutionize science and remove many obstacles that have hindered scientific inquiry from progressing on the planet. The physics and the metaphysics will soon combine.
5. ENERGETIC TRANSFER AND REFLECTION
You can only attract what is within your vibrational field. There are no experiences that you can obtain in physical form without attracting them from a vibrational perspective. That includes the most horrific experiences and the most beautiful ones. What you will learn to do is accept relationships and experiences for what they are. People and experiences serve as a reflection to teach you something about yourself. If somebody says something that offends you, it is because your vibrational field contained an element that needed to be addressed. You will see these people differently. You will thank them for being that reflection and the transfer of energy that was necessary for you to recognize your own vibration. You will honor these people for coming into your life and teaching you what would otherwise be quite difficult to learn without their assistance.
You will come to enjoy the effect that all people have on you, even those you now consider to be obnoxious, rude, insensitive, careless, ignorant, etc. These are qualities you have always judged in yourself and the reflection is only there because you attract it. So start thanking your overbearing boss, nosy neighbour or rude coworker for what they bring to your energy field, because you’ve attracted them into your life for a reason and they’re only doing their job…to be the light you want them to be, and most of the time, it was a mutual effort and request.
6. POLARITY CONSCIOUSNESS AND NEUTRALITY
Perhaps one of the biggest victories awaiting humanity is the shift from polarity or duality consciousness and the dichotomous right vs. wrong which has resulted in much of the conflict and suffering that exists between men and women, people of various races, the wealthy and poor, the strong and weak. Hierarchies have also been formed creating further degrees of separation, (good, better, best) where particular persons or events were rigorously judged within this context. This will end.
All of humanity will begin to understand that all experiences and perceptions are neutral in nature and it is only the ego which places an emphasis on good vs. bad, or right vs. wrong. This shift will be part of the grand awakening which is currently well on its way.
You will begin uniting and accepting each other as equals, and this will be passed to your children liberating successive generations from the shackles of duality. Humanity has already begun transcending this pattern.
Life’s experiences which are now viewed in extreme polarity and prejudice will be viewed as the natural order of one’s life. Being present in that observation by loving, allowing and accepting the world will lead to joy, happiness and enlightenment.
The hard part is over. The only thing left to do now is alter your expectations and enjoy the ride. You are a divine being of light and your true nature will soon be all you know. The pace is now accelerating and the coming changes will also be met by shifts in monetary systems, the political landscape and well as modifications in social and economical infrastructures. This will happen sooner than later, but likely before the end of this year. Many of these events will happen simultaneously and when the greater cycles begins, you will know. It will be difficult, but that is the time to be centered and focus on seeing all the good that will come in the age of empowerment. You are a truly empowered human…own your mastery.

Bare with me, for this may not be an easy read – but we need to crack the code of this much discussed vainglorious chimera.
Which is not to say it doesn’t exist – it does. Yet it exists as a by-product of minds that operate in a sub human vacuum; that have severed their connection with with the normal diversity of emotions – and more particularly – with spirit and soul. Once this type of divorce is sanctioned there can only be deleterious consequences
The current Transhumanist ethos is deeply atheistic, and as such, has no need to replace God, since it doesn’t believe there is such an entity in the first place. But, ironically, it seemingly does have the need to create an all powerful god of its own design.
Such a concept, pursued through to its conclusion, can, according to its proponents, provide some sort of final solution to the human dilemma. So we get the Transhumanist notion that the realisation of a computer that can out maneuver the human brain will somehow produce a liberated society.
Nothing, in reality could be further from the truth. By handing over responsibility for the management of our lives to machines, we usurp our own ability to shape, alter, direct and ultimately rejoice in the art of living. Instead, we individually elect to become slaves to our own inventions.
Recognising this is most important, as it puts the Transhumanist agenda in its true light – which is actually not light at all – but essentially dark. When given free rein, harbouring delusional visions of power leads on to openly fascistic expressions. The Nazi eugenics programme of World War Two is testimony to this horror. And the attempt to bring into existence an all powerful ‘conscious’ computer capable of outstripping human intelligence makes Transhumanism into a new form of concentration camp.
The eugenics school of ‘population cleansing’ has never been far from the surface in this corporate dominated era, and is particular to New World Order ambitions. But to achieve a major depopulation ambition in the post World War Two era would require a highly subversive slight of hand – and I believe that the Transhumanist prophecy of a coming ‘Singularity’ – is such a deeply subversive slight of hand.
Transhumanists use the term ‘The Singularity’ to describe the time when they believe that artificial intelligence, in continuing on its exponential rate of growth, will take over – or overtake – natural intelligence. They name that time ‘The Omega Point’.
This is, I suggest, a direct plagiarism of the spiritual context in which this same term (although not in common parlance) would describe the time of humanity’s broad awakening to Divine Consciousness – or Godliness.
The Singularity of Transhumanist origins thus represents the demonic opposite of Divine Awakening, or Enlightenment. It reverses the natural flow of life and imprisons its prey in a Matrix like world of brainwashed, sterile conformity; the overseer of which is a man made brain. Orwell, Huxley and others warned of just such a possibility more than sixty years ago.
So when we hear that Google, whose chairman is a regular Bilderberg attendee, is pursuing interests in this field, it becomes all too clear that the agenda is directly linked to the ongoing establishment of just such a big brother global control system. One which, according to the Singularity ethos, ultimately leads on to a technically refined form of ‘thinking’ super-computer permanently replacing the higher callings of the human mind.
Under this heinous regime, it is touted that this piece of man made technology will, sooner or later, take the responsibility for managing planetary affairs out of human hands completely, and leave newly ‘liberated people’ to scuttle around like so many rudderless chickens under the watchful eye of the ‘master cyborg cock’.
The software instructions would no doubt gear this all pervasive big brother to instil a further degree of fear upon an already jittery society. And so in awe of its powers would people be – that the ‘logic’ of its pronouncements/actions would be deemed irrefutable. So much so, that all its instructions could never be proved invalid, or be capable of being struck down by a court of law.
No surprise that we have recently witnessed a slue of cinematic previews of this futuristic type of scenario becoming reality.
If you have ever tried to question your account balance with banking staff, you will likely have experienced an abdication of responsibility for any error that may have been made – followed by a reference to any error being “with the computer” and therefore somehow beyond the control of bank staff. This is an initial phase of human abdication to the ‘thinking’ machine. Only a managerial employee might finally be persuaded to actually check the computing end of the system for a potential error.
The desire to never be held accountable and to escape all personal responsibility for the realisation of one’s own God given creative potential – or for the condition of the physical world – represents the ultimate escapist agenda; and makes perfect canon fodder for the vampiric greed of the dark side.
We know that various forms of high-tech (mind) control systems were already under scrutiny within the sinister and secretive MK-Ultra programme and CIA sponsored Cybernetics teams of four or five decades ago. And that before this, certain pseudo-Christian sects held that the gathering of all human intelligence into one vast central holding pool would somehow provide the basis for an evolutionary shift into a higher evolved state for human kind; which would in turn flood the universe with the power of its combined intelligence.
Within this delusional homophobic vision of a man-made speeded-up evolution, the ‘superior mind’ of the computer would be relied upon to coral collective global human information energy. Once achieved, it would no doubt be left in charge of deciding who would – and who would not – be acceptable to the resulting cybernetic society. A super-computer would, in this way, inherit the role of eugenics commander-in-chief, and in something like a Scientology debriefing session – would be given responsibility for selecting who was eligible or ineligible within a kind of sub-human survival of the fittest. The ineligible being dispensed with in whatever way was deemed ‘most efficient’.
Most efficient – and most in keeping with the needs of those party to designing and programming the commander-in-chief’s software – who would make sure to write themselves out of the programme and claim they had no part in the outcome. This super computer will therefore supply the perfect alibi as, according to its programmers, it will have have exceeded their ability to retain control over its actions – and thereby absolve them of responsibility for its excesses. The ultimate pre conceived opt-out.
Nevertheless, the commander-in-chief computer’s primary role is supposed to be a triggering of the great ‘Singularity Event’. An event that might manifest as some kind of Luciferain/Illuminati glorification rapture. A ritualistic dark-side fest with strong similarities to the annual Californian Bohemian Grove gathering. A satanic coming together to celebrate the time in which the spiritual soul would finally be laid to rest and the rampant materialist ambitions of a soulless elite get their full and unopposed due. In this scenario ‘The Omega Point’ sees the Illumaniti dream fulfilled.
After this, the machine would no doubt be switched off – by someone who had retained sufficient will power to carry out this action. Most of the new inheritors of the Earth would insist on having human slaves to look after their various and vicarious needs. In their compassion-less version of Shangrila, the suffering of others would likely add some ‘frissant’ to daily life – and robotic objects could not so amply fulfill this role.
It seems likely that to-days Transhumanists are extending a script that emanates from the Nazi era. The wish to preserve/build a super race – and rid the world of all that fails to measure up to its definitions of mental perfection. Illuminati initiates already consider themselves to be bloodline descendants of extra terrestrial god-kings. These extra terrestrial ambitions tie-in closely with the Transhuman agenda – in which human heart-based spiritual power – being the chief obstruction to the fulfilment of their goal – is finally fully subverted.
We know something about this. For the same sinister theme runs throughout the barely hidden ambitions of corporate exploits in the fields of GMO, pharmaceuticals, agrichemicals, nuclear energy, much of the food industry, corporate controlled media, key banking institutions, advanced technology and telecommunications, the military, NATO, the super-rich, the top dogs of just about all government institutions including the Vatican and other church heirarchies. Not forgetting the European Union and United States executive and taking-in the World Trade Organisation and all the main global trading blocks of this materialistically segmented planet.
In all these – and more – one can detect the mostly secretive – but sometimes quite open despotic desire to exercise an inhuman form of domination, surpassing even the profit motive. The desire to exercise a coldly controlling influence over others and to use this planet as if it were nothing more than free fuel for the further aggrandisement of already over inflated egos. Never mind if ecocide is the end result. Never mind if wisdom, knowledge and a caring heart have to be dispensed with so as to get this devil onto its vainglorious throne.
All these sinister ambitions are fully dependent for their realisation on the Singularity ‘Omega Point’ delivering its technological take-over of human society – and mesmerising the majority into submission and surrender with its seemingly endless and adaptable calculating capacities.
Psychologically, the despotic ‘thinking super-computer’ is nothing more than the projection of an ever restless alter ego. A compensation for an unbearable sense of spiritual inner emptiness and the attempt to try to make up for this by surrendering one’s soul to an all powerful and dominating self created idol.
So if you harbour a secret fascination in corporate mass produced gadgetry – watch out! You are already entering the foothills of the Transhumanist domain and opening yourself to a mind controlling medium which is shaping the lives of a whole generation even as I write.
It is in fact, part of the same domain in which avid genetic scientists like Craig Venter are putting the final touches to their (ostensibly illegal) laboratory conceived designer babies.
We, in whom circulates the precious red blood of love, sympathy, sadness, joy and passion, are never going to fall foul of this soulless ghost – neither now or in the future. But we need to know of it; if only to remind ourselves of what lies in store for this world if we fail to realise our God given potential to be warm hearted, creative beings.
Creative, sentient beings whose destiny is to break-through the insanity which surrounds us, drawing upon a deeper courage and a greater conviction concerning our own Divine powers. Powers to bring forth that which will banish forever those who count on fear winning out over the glorious celebration of love, which is, has been – and will always be – the true foundation of Universal and Earthly life.

We recently took a look at the comparison between the human experience and computer science. In our analogy our bodies and brains are our hardware but the things that make us (our beliefs, emotions, thoughts, etc) are like software. We talked about the importance of doing regular maintenance on ourselves and installing great anti-virus programming to keep the evil at bay. Basically we said that we, as humans, get to choose who we are by deciding which software we install.
In keeping with our computing analogy it is important to remember that new developments are happening all the time. Every day scientists work on solving the mysteries of our consciousness and morality.
Time recently reported on the researchers from Belgium’s University of Liege who have been trying to figure out if there are physical indicators that will help doctor’s predict a coma or vegetative patient’s chances of recovery. The scientists are trying to better determine the difference between a vegetative state and a minimally conscious state. Of the different methods these scientists tried, the PET scan, when paired with the FDG imaging agent showed a 74% accuracy rate. These tests don’t measure or dissect consciousness (at least not yet) but they have helped doctors get a better idea of what, physically, constitutes consciousness than they had before.
According to a recent article in Extreme Tech, a scientist named Max Tegmark (from MIT) has decided that consciousness—something we have always thought of as ethereal—is actually a state of matter. He says that, like with liquids, there are lots of different types of consciousness—types that can be tracked and measured using informational theory and quantum mechanics. If he’s right, we’ll be able to measure the difference between self awareness and why we perceive the world in three dimensions.
On the other side of the coin is, of course, the more philosophical approach to the human condition, consciousness and morality. It’s the basis, for example, of the work that Jeremy Griffin is doing with the World Transformation Movement.
Of course, Jeremy Griffin isn’t the only person doing significant work in this area.
A recent article in the Washington Post posited that there was no link between atheism and amorality. The article cites a source that decries atheists for insisting that morality and self sacrifice alone are proof of a deity and then goes on to talk about the different mechanisms through which someone who is not a theist could use “rational choice theory” to justify a self sacrificing act (valuing another’s life over one’s own) or sociologically enforced norms surrounding ethics and behaviors.
The Burbank Leader cites extensive sources that prove that one does not need to believe in a deity or “God” to be a moral person (in spite of what most people believe, according to a recent Pew Research Poll). The article talks about social responsibility being the basis by which we live out our human conditions and navigate the waters of good-vs.-evil as opposed to simply fearing retribution from a higher power if one does not conform to specific constructs of morality and behavior.
Eastern philosophy has been attacking these problems for centuries, coming up with theories on our interpersonal connections, our emotions and our consciousness. Groups like the World Transformation Movement are using science and philosophy to get to the root of our humanity. What do you think? Are you on the side of the purely empirical scientists? Or do you think there is something more…metaphysical guiding our time on this planet (and others in the future if we ever leave this planet and go out into space)?
