Awaken to Your Inner Power

APPEARING GOOD SO OTHERS LOVE YOU, participating in uninspiring religious rituals to secure your place in heaven, keeping your heart half open, or pinning all your hopes on a messiah at the expense of direct contact with God diminishes your happiness and power. If your soul is to break free of the planetary hold, as it must, you need do more than follow a rote path to God. You must actively seek to know yourself and your purpose on Earth in more intimate ways. This is the true path of spiritual mastery.

In these times of uncertainty seek greater peace within. In preparation for the coming Event, it is necessary to expand your heart and mind beyond their present limitations. Draw truth from a multitude of sources, not from one holy book, one comfortable church, or one inspiring teacher. Expand your internal core of wisdom and knowledge by questioning more deeply and allowing your heart to answer in the time it takes. By doing so, a previously inaccessible reality comes into view. By crossing the bridge of consciousness to the Eternal City, climbing its initiatory steps and walking through its arched entryway, you will come upon a massive golden square where shimmering-robed beings of every level of spiritual mastery go about their business. Beings not unlike the wise souls described in books or depicted in movies. Within their souls, business and joy are intertwined in the task at hand—that of assisting humanity’s evolution. Focusing attention on that harmonious scene, your destiny on Earth becomes instantly and clearly apparent, as does the path you must take to its fulfillment. And no one can take that memory from you. The direction of your life will change forever. That which had superficial meaning in your life will dissolve. A higher set of guidelines will dictate your thoughts and actions. Those in your presence will recognize that something about you has changed for the better, and as a result they will change in your presence.

By establishing a daily connection to this etheric dimension, your hidden talents will bloom in its light. Your perceived failings will reveal themselves as valuable lessons. And what you considered personal limitations will unfold as humble opportunities. Taking your destiny to the next spiritual level, your physical body will be enveloped in an ethereal light, the vibration of which will attract all that you need to succeed in your quest to be whole again. Having ever believed there was no other purpose in life other than eating, sleeping and dreaming, you will weep knowing otherwise.

Consciousness is Always Evolving

WHEN DEATH ARRIVES and you vacate your physical body, your soul will automatically rise in Spirit to the vibration you earned while in embodiment. And if your thoughts and actions were off the mark, you will sleep for a time in the comfort of your mind’s karmic illusions, attended by ministering beings. But at some point you will awaken in much the same manner as one who awakens on Earth to their spiritual path. How long it takes, and why, is unique to each soul. Perhaps those you left behind are praying that your soul moves on, or the heavy shadow of a planetary alignment finally passes. Whatever the catalyst, your consciousness becomes aroused. You begin to sense there is something more to life than what you are presently experiencing. With renewed motivation, your soul awakens like Lazarus to resume its journey back to God.

There is never a point in consciousness when the soul ceases to evolve, though many do not evolve as quickly as they should. Yet everyone is given ample time and opportunities to catch up with their evolutionary timetables. But with a new age churning the sea of matter, those timetables have been accelerated. Without exception, you must open your mind further and make wiser decisions for your soul to come into alignment with the Aquarian vibration. Those afraid to emerge from their cocoons will fall behind the evolutionary curve. Anyone remaining longer than cosmic law allows will be culled from those souls destined to enter Aquarius by virtue of their preparation.

Your Spiritual Mission

IN THE PROCESS OF EXPANDING CONSCIOUSNESS, the soul becomes less and less dependant on time and space to evolve. Once its final initiations on the physical plane are successfully passed, it will no longer be necessary to re-embody, having transmuted a critical mass of karma. You are then free to reside in the finer dimensions of Spirit where subtler initiations are presented. However, there are souls having mastered the laws of time and space who voluntarily return to advance humanity’s evolution in their unique ways. But regardless of one’s level of attainment, returning to the matter sphere requires exceptional physical, mental, and emotional stamina.

Because karmic laws are so exacting, many souls awaken to their spiritual missions later in life. The reasons are as varied as the number of stars shining in the heavens. A common one is that a small karmic pebble is lodged in the sole of the spiritual shoe that hobbles them. Until removed, their larger mission remains on hold. That doesn’t mean they are helpless in their circumstances—on the contrary. Though it may take most of their lives and countless good works to balance the karmic scales, they bide their time in joyful anticipation while a strong sense of mission guides their decisions and actions.

Another reason many start late is that they must wait for an astrological configuration of stars to align that provides additional spiritual support. Without such an alignment, any prior effort would fall short of the goal, and so for these, patience is the test.

And though other souls start their missions early because they possess spiritual attainment in a given area, regardless of why or when, everyone who exists in the third dimension must be wary of its distracting illusions. Because of the mental and emotional creations projected by billions of souls on Earth, past and present, there is much confusion and contradiction. Taken as a whole, it’s understandable why so many are disoriented from birth. The sensation of dipping one’s soul into matter’s reflective sea is no different than being pulled into the vortex of a strong whirlpool. As a result, no one is completely immune to the dangers of matter’s force swirling around them. And because everyone sails a unique course back to God, even those with great attainment need to take extra precautions to keep their spiritual compasses pointing North. For your protection and direction, enter the Eternal Now, heaven’s lifeline, for spiritual attunement correlates directly to the strength of that connection.

Greater Discipline Required

THE SPIRALING CONSCIOUSNESS OF MANKIND is presently tilting slightly but irrevocably toward the sun. This ten thousandth degree rise may seem insignificant, but such an elevation has incalculable ramifications for every soul on the planet. Because the Earth is absorbing higher concentrations of sunlight, the additional rise in temperature is stressing her protective sheath creating atomic “cracks” in some quarters. As a result, higher concentrations of Galactic Cosmic Rays are penetrating Earth’s inner atmosphere, directly influencing the collective evolution. Higher concentrations of cosmic rays on the planet, though, is not the problem, as they are necessary to bring the Aquarian age into third-eye view. Heaven's concern is that nearly seven billion souls are not spiritually prepared for that which is to come. Witness bouts of isolated insanity and those regions on Earth where conflicts continue to prevail.

Greater physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual discipline is required of everyone entering the Aquarian age. Childlike inquisitiveness and less emphasis on material possessions are ways to begin. Carrying less karmic baggage will make it easier to cope. Those continuing to think and act from old Piscean paradigms will be out of sync with Aquarian reality. Believe us, there are countless planes of existence whose inhabitants fell behind the spiritual eight ball and now find it difficult to escape. To avoid a similar fate, join with others of like mind to span the karmic abyss between matter and Spirit. It won’t be easy, given life’s cushions of security and comfort. Even those with spiritual mastery find navigating the crosscurrents and headwinds of the third dimension difficult. For your safety and the safety of those dependant on you, connect to your Higher Self in the protective field of the Eternal Now.

Life is Not a Haphazard Ordeal

TIME AND SPACE IS THE OUTER MIRROR of one’s consciousness. Here, each soul can process karmic lessons less evident in Spirit. Though fifty years alongside the incalculable scope of infinity amounts to little more than a falling eyelash in the grand scheme of cosmos, the ultimate power of time and space brings one’s karmic lessons into microscopic clarity. And if enough falling eyelashes coalesce to create an epiphany that frees your soul from having to embody again until you finally grasp a particular lesson, fifty years will have proved to be golden. By allowing time and space to harness consciousness the soul is then able to reflect deeply on lessons that must be passed for it to be free. This brings one closer to God. Though the Earth plane is a difficult environment, those who willingly descend from Spirit actually accelerate their evolution. And those who balance their karma ahead of time attract a corresponding degree of happiness, freedom, and love in both matter and Spirit. And if that soul’s stars are in alignment with the stars governing Earth at a time when the fate of humanity is hanging in the balance, that soul will be credited in spiritual realms (and sometimes in the physical) with having saved millions, if the soul’s karmic lesson lifted a weight on the planetary wing that results in bringing humanity back from the brink.

Those who willingly immerse themselves in the higher vibration of the Aquarian age will think and act more from fourth dimensional ideals that promote oneness with all. Those continuing to adhere to third dimensional thinking—separateness, shame, fear, guilt, judgment—will only cause themselves and others more pain and suffering. The purpose of embodying on Earth is to love yourself and others unconditionally—the primary force of evolution. Love is, was, and always will be the key to each one’s freedom. However, in the Aquarian age, love and power will be the test. Those who understand and balance these two forces in the light of wisdom will undoubtedly appreciate their time on Earth more than those who operate in the old ways. In the logical sense, embodiment is never a haphazard ordeal. It took great will and sacrifice of your entire genetic lineage to position you at the forefront of this age. Your existence is no accident, but the result of a specific plan for someone with your unique wisdom, talents, and experiences. That plan, of course, takes into account every soul on Earth as well as those in Spirit. But do not dwell on the billions of souls that equation might encompass, for God thinks as highly of you as any other. Yet, you must consider where you fall on the evolutionary totem pole. If at the bottom, there’s little time to waste. You must begin in this moment to make major changes in your life. The same applies to those near the top. To free yourself further, you must help free those below you. If they are to be free, those above them are required to stretch themselves even more. Unconditional love of self and others is the key. As you apply the rudimentary laws of love in your life, your power will naturally come into play. If during the transition between ages souls at the bottom of the totem pole are not brought into the fold quickly and lovingly, they will eventually need to be cut loose. The coming Event will see to that.

All Reality is a Version of Heaven

WHEN A KARMIC PEBBLE IS FINALY DISSOLVED, life’s ultimate purpose breaks through like sunshine on a cloudy day. Essential to everyone’s happiness is contentment—the acceptance of what is and what isn’t. How is that possible in a seemingly hard and uncompromising world? When you solve that riddle, those in heaven will not only reveal themselves but work with you to create a better world for all. Fulfilling your purpose on Earth also fulfills your purpose in heaven. Dying without having made progress on Earth sets you back as many lifetimes as it takes to understand that heaven is a state of consciousness and not a place to hang your laurels. Whether your soul is traversing matter or Spirit you will receive the same lessons over and over again until you master them. To believe you must exit the Earth as soon as you can, because you believe heaven far superior, places limits on everything you think, say, and do. Until you believe that every dimension of reality is a version of heaven, you will continue cycling back to the point where you failed the lesson. This is the main reason so many on Earth require so many embodiments.

You could eliminate years of karmic pain and suffering simply by tweaking your thoughts and emotions to resonate more with your ideal version of heaven. Or overcome a small, unhealthy habit, which having done so, enhances your happiness, or over time saves your life. Start by taking inventory of the rules by which you live. Keep in mind that the only rules ultimately worth following are those that keep you steady on the path to Self realization. All others simply gratify the ego.

Connecting to the Eternal Now

KNOWING WHAT TO DO OR WHERE TO TURN at any given moment requires an unwavering connection to the wisdom and knowledge of the Eternal Now. Through unconditional love, discipline, meditation, and devotional living, you will begin to access this infinite dimension within, where at its center a white marble font pulses with inspiration and a reflecting pool provides your heart and mind guidance, often as the voice of reason. When in the midst of the Eternal Now, shadows of doubt and regret disappear. Here you are bathed in light, love, and comfort.

Open your heart to its contentment now by exercising a simple technique spiritual masters of every age and discipline have practiced for millenniums. Take a deep breath and hold it to the count of five. Exhale slowly and consciously while summoning your spiritual guides, angels, elementals, or devas that they might know you intimately. Repeat this exercise three times. With each inhalation observe how much more clearly everything appears. When reaching that softer level of integration with All, you will have entered the embrace of higher consciousness. This is a big step in your quest for enlightenment. An important effect of conscious breathing is that it clears the clutter from your mind and loosens the knots that restrict your heart. When opened at this level, you are at the gates of the Eternal City. Here God can speak to you directly.

Though breathing techniques offer entrance to the Eternal Now, countless other techniques work as well. Rituals associated with traditional religions—such as prayer, fasting, and devotional living—have, over the centuries, propelled many to a state heightened awareness. And though these methods have proved worthwhile in the quest of transcendence, they are effective only to a degree. Traditionally practiced by religious devotees who adhere to a strict set of beliefs formulated by others, prayer and penance are usually practiced to either curry favor with a harsh God or mitigate guilt. For those reasons, rather than assuming the more enlightened roles of co-creator with God or emissary of the spiritual realms, they can be restrictive to one’s evolution.

Be the Wise Shepherd

THEN THERE’S THE QUANDARY of relegating one’s authority to priestly or messianic intercessors. Those who purport to be God’s spiritual mouthpieces, whether rabbi, imam, priest, or guru, can potentially block the spiritual connection to God of those they influence. Many on Earth, though, are only beginning to awaken from their evolutionary slumber. To expand consciousness beyond the limitations of traditional religions, each must break free of the mindset of relying on others to make important spiritual decisions for them. Though drawing wisdom and knowledge to oneself by sitting under one’s own vine and fig tree is the mandate of the Aquarian age, it will take time for the majority on Earth to fully embrace that concept. In the interim, they will require intercessors. But ultimately, each person must awaken to his own inner power.

Without exception, everyone must take full responsibility for their misguided words and actions, make appropriate amends, and move on without guilt or shame. There are those who instill unworthiness in others to gain their allegiance. It must be assumed that any attempt to control another comes from the ego. Those who do allow others to control them at the expense of their freewill compromise, even sever their connection to their Higher Self.

The majority of Piscean structured religions, as they are presented today, will fall by the wayside in the Aquarian cycle. Once a critical number of souls break through to the higher spiritual dimensions and draw to themselves the wisdom, knowledge, and guidance needed for their evolution, old religious paradigms will cease to exist. Those who once found comfort in following others like sheep will be required in the Age of Aquarius to assume the role of the wise Shepherd.

Breaking Through the Wall of Resistance

THE SPIRITUAL PATH DIVIDES AT CRITICAL TIMES in everyone’s life. Whether due to an attempt to relieve suffering triggered by a personal crisis, or simply to expand happiness, real change demands action. But first you must decide: Do I continue on the same path that has caused me pain and sadness, or do I forge a new one through the wall of my resistance that leads to health and happiness?

Everyone knows intuitively what to do. Acting on that intuition is another matter. Do you stay with the old and continue to suffer, or be courageous and take another approach? Anything new is paralyzing to some. But if you relegate your power to those who think and decide for you, a large portion of your spiritual power is lost. You are then vulnerable to being manipulated in other areas of life. Over time you lose the essence who you are. Resistance to try something new is strong, and old beliefs so formfitting that they are difficult to escape, especially when confronted by a mountain of guilt or threatened with estrangement from family or friends. But break free you must.

As the vibration of the new age settles across the Earth, your soul must keep pace with the demands of its fourth dimensional requirements. Otherwise, you will drown in ignorance, unable to stay afloat due to spiritual inertia. The new age will require you to make decisions that not only benefit your evolution but everyone’s on the planet. And if your motives are pure, as they should be, those on Earth and in Spirit will support your quest in unimaginable ways. Those courageous enough to take the higher road through the center of their resistance to change will not only galvanize love and happiness for themselves but help keep balance in the earth. This is spiritual evolution—the primary focus of those in spiritual realms. And when your quest is in line with that of cosmic law, your power as a spiritual master becomes unlimited. More over, those in spiritual realms are able to work with you directly. Even those times when you fail, you will not be deterred in your quest to balance Spirit and matter. For spiritual power comes from taking full responsibility for your actions. You’ll pick yourself up, dust yourself off, make amends to those you affected, and then move forward having extracted wisdom from the lesson. The age upon you is one of spiritual power. Awaken to it.

Thank you. I don't really know what else to say but, this helps me a lot at this point in my life. As one who is about to graduate college I have to choose between an unpopular path and the path of least resistance. So, thanks.
