A little known idea in the spiritual world is that Creation was first started by the first Avatar, Ganesha (the one in pictures and shown as statues with an elephant’s head). The Avatar then chose five souls that had come down with him, and gave each a quality, a spirit of God. So the first five Perfect Masters were created. One Perfect Master had the quality of Bliss, another Perfect Master had the quality of Wisdom, then there was Power, Knowledge and Truth.
Each Perfect Master was 20% of God, so the five together were 100%. The Perfect Masters’ consciousness was on the lowest three Divine Journeys; the first Divine Journey, the second Divine Journey and the third Divine Journey. There were many millions of Divine Journeys which held qualities of God, each with light and love more intense than the ones below, all the way Up to the Father. The lower three Divine Journeys though were just above what was called the Om point, the gateway to Creation in the below, so Divine Energy and souls could flow down into Creation..
Creation was created to consist of seven Planes of Consciousness. The bright white light of the sixth plane, filled with mental light, was energetically across a gigantic abyss from the first Divine Journey. The next plane, also a mental light plane, was the fifth plane. Then came the next lower plane, the fourth, which is a plane of power, of God’s power, which can be a tricky plane to move up through, because if there is misuse of power, the soul goes back down. The next plane was the third plane of consciousness, where souls turn their gaze inwards, towards the inner, rather than focus on the outer, material world.
The lower planes were the second and first plane of consciousness, where the focus is naturally mostly on the outer world. The lowest plane, the zeroth plane was massive, and souls start of at the bottom of this plane on their spiritual journey back to God. The zeroth plane incorporated the mineral, plant, animal kingdoms and the beginnings of humanity.
The Perfect Masters had a physical body, yet their consciousness moved around on the first three Divine Journeys, so they had access to infinitely big amounts of energy, which they could focus on Creation.
Being Divine, Perfect Masters have Universal Consciousness. Aware of Reality, they know that Creation is an illusion. They operate in Creation, as they have a role to look after all the souls in Creation, and move them on through experiences on the Planes of Consciousness. When a soul has had enough experience and has balanced their karma enough, a Perfect Master will God-realize the soul, taking their consciousness up to one of the Divine Journeys, so they too experience themselves as their true nature, which is God. Having Universal Consciousness, the Perfect Masters are at the centre of Creation, they are the Pivot. They are at the centre of each soul. Everything they do affects all of Creation, as they help to balance karma and develop Creation spiritually.
The Perfect Masters look after and work on Creation while the Avatar is back in the Divine Journeys. Every four hundred to seven hundred years, the Avatar returns with souls in tow, in a major or minor incarnation. They do their Universal work, give instructions concerning what needs to be done to move Creation in the right direction and drop their physical body, and go back up the Divine Journeys again. The Perfect Masters do their best to implement the changes.
When an issue came up the Perfect Masters would take a vote on what to do. Sometimes an energetic vote would be unanimous, 100%, so full energy could be focused on an issue. If the vote was 4 to 1, or 3 to 2, then less energy would be focused on an issue, which might not have been enough, so the Avatar would have to fix that the next time around. Perhaps that is changing now, so the five Perfect Masters work together better.
When souls first come into Creation, they have a leaning to one of the Perfect Masters, Bliss, Wisdom, Power, Knowledge and Truth. They usually keep this affiliation. (Which means you will have a leaning to a particular Perfect Master.
When a Perfect Master drops their body and dies, the energy, quality or spirit of that Perfect Master lifts from them to seek out the next possible likely candidate. Then it descends on the new candidate and they become the next Perfect Master of that quality.
This Earth is currently the planet where all the frequencies of energy are found, and where all the planes and Divine Journeys can be accessed. This is the planet where the Avatar incarnates and where the five Perfect Masters live. What changes the Avatar and Perfect Masters make here on Earth radiates out into the rest of Creation.
Currently, humanity is an important focus for spirituality, so three Perfect Masters work with humanity, and two Perfect Masters focus on the Devic realm. All Perfect Masters work with the Archangels (who are on the sixth plane) and angels (who are on the fifth plane).
Perfect Masters may or may not work with groups of people, or make themselves known to the public as they are basically a bit busy looking after the whole of Creation, which is quite an all consuming job. It’s worth remembering that they are connected to all souls anyway, yours and mine, because they are in the centre of our souls, so in a sense they are working with us anyway.
Footnote: Before Meher Baba became Avatar, the Perfect Masters, who at that time lived not far away from him in India (which helped to protect him when he was younger) were Babajan, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Upasni Maharaj, Tajuddin Baba, and Narayan Maharaj. There is information about them and photographs, on the internet.
Enlightenment is a word that crops up quite a bit in online groups, with quite a few people claiming they are enlightened.
When people experience a rapid spiritual growth, which some people call an awakening whereas other would say they are merely rubbing their eyes, a veil is taken away so those people get to experience the world in a way they never suspected existed. It is as if they step into a new world which operates in a different way to their old world. There is more to this though than meets the (waking) eye.
There are Planes of Consciousness that humanity exists on. These are the zeroth plane, the first plane, the second, and third planes. Then there are the fourth, the fifth and the sixth Planes of Consciousness.
The zeroth, first, second and third planes are the planes where people create karma. The light and energy on the zeroth plane is very slow. There is some astral light, but no mental light. On the first plane the light is a bit quicker and the karma on this plane is different to the zeroth plane, and there is more astral light and a small amount of mental light. On the second plane there is astral light and more mental light than the first, and the spirit of the people, like on the lower planes, is mostly focused outwards away from the inner planes. The third plane is the one where the spirit turns inwards to place its awareness on the inner planes and on God in a solid way. There is more mental light here and less astral. The fourth plane is a very potent plane with mental light and power, which may be used in the outer, physical world. There can a big focus on the inner planes and God. The fifth plane is filled with mental light, and karma is worked through here and not created. Awareness of the spirit and also the personality is automatically focused inside, on God. The sixth plane is also mental light and is even brighter. Again karma is worked through to balance it, so the positive karma balances the negative karma, more or less, and is very much reduced in amount. This is a place of spiritual dreams which is easy to become lost in without a guide, and the focus is on the inner planes and God rather than the external world and material life.
We have on average 8,400,000 lives as a human. We start off in the zeroth plane. We live, experience life, and achieve a tiny incremental increase in consciousness, and then we die. Next lifetime, we start off at a slightly higher level of consciousness than the previous life. The process of reincarnation goes on and on. As it does, our level of consciousness keeps on increasing. It keeps on doing this all up the planes, and the consciousness of someone on the sixth plane is very different to the level of consciousness they had when they were on the zeroth plane all those millions of lifetimes ago. Over the many lifetimes, we build up our ability to handle the light. Someone on the sixth plane could not have been able to handle the light and energy that they are immersed in now, when they were on the zeroth, or first, second and third planes, and in fact all the way up including the fifth.
As part of this increase of consciousness that comes from experiencing and learning from Life (which is an expression of God), there are times when our karma that we have arranged to work with before incarnating, includes having a veil of awareness removed so we partially see a bit more of what Life is really about. There are many veils to be removed, and as each one is removed we get to see into Life deeper and deeper. These veils are removed at points as we go through our many, many lives. In a life when the plan is to remove a veil to move us along our spiritual path, our guide or guides decides on the best timing to do this, taking into account our mind and our personality’s ability to handle losing one old version of reality, and replacing it with a new version, as it can be quite stressful for a mind. This new perception helps us to see the reality we live in, the new dream we live in, in a more spiritual way.
A veil removed in the zeroth or first plane will enable the person to experience the light on those planes, and the information, knowledge and understanding in it, but not help them to experience what is on the higher planes. Building that experience is a step by step by step process over the many lifetimes.
Occasionally someone who has a veil removed and experiences an awakening, or really a mini-awakening, will experience reality in a new way, and feel different and say they are enlightened. But really there are many veils to be removed over many lifetimes. The notion of enlightenment needs to be put into perspective. No matter where anyone is on the path, there is always more to learn and experience.
When a person has made it up to near the top of the sixth Plane of Consciousness usually (or occasionally the fifth) and so there karma is nearly balanced and much reduced, a Perfect Master will make that person God-realised. They unshackle the consciousness from being in the Illusion of Creation, wake up the soul and the consciousness, and place it in Universal consciousness. They make it aware of God, and the soul’s true reality. Usually the physical body is dropped at this point as it is no longer needed unless that person have a role to fulfil down here in physical Creation.
This is a big awakening, and the new level of light and love coming through gives a new understanding and knowing (and spiritual common sense), but there is more.
The Divine is made up of Divine Journeys, each infinitely big compared to the one before, each with brighter and more intense love and light, each being an aspect of God who is Infinite. Once on the Divine Journeys, a soul can journey through the increasing levels of love and light, further and further along the Divine Journeys. All the way to God in its highest form.
With each Divine Journey comes new awareness and learning and change. New enlightenment if you like. What happens at the end of the journey? You would have to be there to find out.
As for removal of the veils at this present time, it is quite an event for a number of reasons. There are cycles of Ages. In this Age that we live in, the Kali Yuga Age is the darkest and slowest one, where souls get to rest and digest the light they have previously experienced, normally not a lot goes on. But it looks like God has decided to speed things up a bit, as the last Avatar, Meher Baba instigated a plan of massive change, with a huge input of spiritual energy, to speed things up a lot. He indicated he had made all the major decisions for the next 1,200 years, and set the timeline for the next 3,000 years. The five Perfect Masters are making sure this is happening, and also, the first Divine Journey is actually coming down into Creation and down the planes. It should take about 1,200 years for it to reach the bottom of the zeroth Plane of Consciousness. This will bring about thorough change in the world, in the Universe, and in Creation. What is more, the second and the third Divine Journey are due to come into Creation as well and this should take 3,000 years to complete. Life will be completely different to how we experience it now, and humanity will have changed hugely as well, with a great many more chakras than it has now.
The first Divine Journey can be considered as being like gold light, and a type of Divine Love that can be thought of as Unconscious Bliss. Think of bubbles of gold light falling down the Planes of Consciousness, falling into peoples’ hearts and minds, carrying tremendous energy, bliss, inspirational and creative thoughts and dreams, which generally shake things Up and move everything forward. There are Divine guides like personal trainers for everyone which are very different to previous guides so it is useful to forget everything you think you know about guides, because they won’t be like that. It is “All Change”.
Then there are souls incarnating from now on that are more awake than the souls currently down here, who will be bringing about more change and carrying a lot of energy.
Additionally, humanity is having its third eye opened, and an increase in consciousness in humanity is taking place for everyone. More chakras are being placed in humans, which means new ways of living, doing and being, as the new sixth Root Race starts up since the old fifth Root Race, the Aryan Root Race, is coming to an end. Hence the fragmentation of human life nowadays and general breakdown, chaos, change and new beginnings.
This is definitely an amazing and interesting time to be alive on this singularly unique planet out of all the possible planets to incarnate into, in a human life.
Hopefully this puts the notion of enlightenment into context. Learning and spiritual development into who and what you are as a soul happens through the process of Life and God-realisation. The concept of “enlightenment” is pointless, empty and has a lot of glamour, and is best forgotten. Best to focus on doing what feels right and loving to keep moving and learning on your spiritual path.
Just so you know, you can use your innate, spiritual abilities to check out concepts that you come across, and you can check out what people say. Using your third eye or your intuition, you might like to take a look at the concept of “enlightenment”, the one found in the New Age world. To me it looks all grey and mushy. There is nothing to it, just a lot of astral and mental energy that people have fed it with. When a thoughtform is like that, it is best to disregard it and find what looks and feel true, filled with love and light.
If you are interested, there is a wonderful map of how souls progress through the planes of consciousness and through the Divine Journeys and their states of mind or Mind in “God Speaks” by Meher Baba. There is also a tremendous amount of other high quality information in it (and amazing energy). If you feel drawn to get this book, it is definitely a good idea to get it.
This is a section from a book I’m writing. If you have any comments I would love to read them.
A Very Important Skill; Psychometrising
Psychometry is all about sensing or tuning into, or reading the energy of something. You can use your third eye as in clairvoyance, you can feel into the energy, or assess it as sound, or touch and texture. You can use your intuition to assess the energy, or work with your guide if that is what you do.
Psychometry can help you gain information about almost anything. It can help you gain a sense of how useful or important something is, how safe, unhealthy or dangerous something is, or how relevant and up-to-date something is.
Psychometry was basically used for tuning into the energy of an object to discover information about it. Take for example a piece of old jewellery. By placing hands near it, or holding it (sometimes not a good idea if the energy is negative), people who were practised at psychometry and had skill in it could sense the previous owner and what they were like, and other facts that were held in the energy that was still corded to the object.
Some objects, such as metals, and particularly gold, could absorb and hold energies. This isn’t always great when heirlooms or antiques are passed down through the generations. I once visited an old historical house that had old swords on the wall. Some swords felt a bit unpleasant as they had been used in battles to injure and kill people. Probably not what you want on your walls!
With energetically pleasant objects, it can be good training practising to tune into their energy, psychometrise it, just see what impressions you pick up from it and do a mini-reading on it. Psychometry just takes practice and a willingness to give it a go.
There is so much you can psychometrise; aerial photographs of villages, towns and cities as well as buildings. You can psychometrise large built up areas such as airports, factories and so on, plus historical buildings. It can be very interesting either visiting a geographical feature such as a field or hillside or cave and pyschometrising that. There are areas of land that have been the sites of ancient towns and cities, or places where battles have been fought. Some places have supposedly secret underground spaces or buildings that have been constructed which can have some very interesting energies. Also some sites and areas of land can have a powerful ground energy or be a place where ley lines cross, or where there is a geological feature under the ground that give it a strong energy.
As well as using psychometry for gaining impressions and information about physical objects, it can also be used for examining abstract concepts such as theories, ideas and plans, or philosophies and beliefs. There is a notion that the truth can set you free, and we take a lot of concepts for granted without considering their value or how truthful they are.
Psychometrising abstract concepts has a lot to do with regarding them as thoughtforms, which which is a powerful idea mentioned elsewhere in the book.
You can psychometrise religions, political beliefs, political parties, opinions and ideas that pass for conventional wisdom that people assume to be true. For instance, if a lot of people have been persuaded to think that using a certain pesticide is a good idea, you can psychometrise that, or psychometrise the advertising or research put out by a pharmaceutical company. You can psychometrise banks, oil companies, new space companies, department stores, and so on. In fact everything has a thoughtform associated with it which you can psychometrise.
The area of the New Age, of self-help, of spirituality, of healing, therapies and meditation is a rich place of abstract ideas and thoughtforms that can be psychometrised to gain a sense of how appropriate for you they are, of how realistic they are, how useful and helpful they are, how loving and positive they really are (or not!).
If there is an event being advertised or promoted, you can sense it as a thoughtform and psychometrise the energy; do a mini-reading on it.
Anything you see posted online you can do the same with and psychometrise it. It really helps you to be able to identify the quality of what is posted, how high (or low) it vibrates, how truthful or fake it is, how benign or malign it is (sometimes they are, as even Dark Lodge folk go looking online for unsuspecting punters in online communities and groups).
You can psychometrise pieces of music and songs to check their energy and how much they can feed into your energy. (Mostly I prefer popular music or rock as I find it helps to ground me and some of the groups and singers are doing a spiritual purpose and radiating healing energy to a lot of people.)
You can psychometrise any affirmations that are put out on social media sites and see how much energy there is behind them. If you are condsidering any groups to join, you can psychometrise those as well.
You can take a look at pronouncements about what is happening in the world from aliens from Arcturus, Lyra, the Pleaides, Andromeda, or from various grand intergalactic councils.You can psychometrise the sources of these words. You can do the same for missives from guides with impressive names, or supposed to be coming from angels. On the astral planes there are clumps of energy or static that people can tune into and believe to be a special source of information. In the arena of spirituality, if you are having something presented to you with the expectation that you will believe it, testing it by psychometrising is important. You can psychometrise everything to figure out how much truth there is in what you are presented. (I say this because I have been there and held beliefs that I thought were right and which I then ditched. I thought the concepts and beliefs were the most amazing thing ever but with experience and closer examination those concepts and beliefs disintegrated. Fortunately.)
It is worth psychometrising the concept that is prevalent amongst some people that angels act as guides. You might also like to psychometrise the idea that angels look like (very glamourous) humans. Find out what is true for you.
You can psychometrise the concept of reincarnation and that reincarnation is real. You can psychometrise the concept that there are five Perfect Masters on the Earth at all times. How about the concept that the Avatar (God in human form) incarnates on this earth every four hundred to seven hundred years in major and minor incarnations?
You can psychometrise various trainings that you see advertised or hear about. You can gain an idea of if they are right for you and what their qualities are like. You can pyschometrise the various styles of meditation that you come across, and the various meditation teachers or schools of meditation. This can help you find the right one for you should you want to do meditation.
There is a lot of information and misinformation out there and pyschometrising what you come across can make a big difference. I’m all for people being well informed.
At some point you might want to have some healing. In alternative and complementary medicine there are many healing modalities and it helps to assess and choose the right one for you (definitely check out any free ones!). You could try psychometrising the concepts of Reiki, of homeopathy, of hands on healing (spiritual healing), of using crystals, of using sound with Tibetan bowls, of Shamanic healing techniques, and so on. There are techniques where you listen online to sounds, you could psychometrise aromatherapy, reflexology, acupuncture, and so on and so on. Quite often someone comes up with a new technique, so being able to assess it by psychometrising can be helpful. Some techniques are given impressive sounding titles. Pyschometrising the technique helps to identify just how impressive or not the technique actually is.
It is definitely a good idea to psychometrise the therapist or healer, or reader, that you are considering working with. Do a mini-reading on them to get a sense of how light they are, how good they are as a healer, what their healing energy is like, how solid and reliable they are, check for negative doorways or good energy, and gain a sense of their intentions as well. Someone I know had some sessions with a therapist, who wanted to use a therapeutic technique, and also wanted to give a form of energy work. The energy coming from her was actually like black goo, and it was as if she had black tendrils coming out of her trying to wrap themselves and insert themselves into the other person’s energy. The therapy was OK but the healing wasn’t healing, and there was a sense of trying to pull the recipient in so she could make more money from them.
It helps to find a therapist with clear intentions, who is reliable, who gives out good energy and uses a clean, high energy technique, who trusts God or the universe enough to have a good, respectful financial relationship with the client.
If you like reading books you can psychometrise them before buying or reading. Some authors have better energy than others, and some books have better energy that other books. Also when you pyschometrise possible books, you can identify the one or ones that you like the look or feel of, and which would most likely be what you need at that particular time in your life.
There are some books that are not overtly spiritual, but actually carry an energy or a message, or link you into an energy that influences you and possibly many people. In this way these books open up an audience to new frequencies of light, and offer new possibilities of what life is like or can be like.
There are films around that can do the same, which open up the imagination and offer a positive message and energy and sometimes offer quite a healing energy. The films can appeal to millions of people. Spirituality is for everyone, not just for those people who consider themselves spiritual.
The Harry Potter books and films and those associated with them have sparked the imaginations of millions of people and they are conduits for spiritual energies to flow in. These books and films can touch many more people than books that spiritually minded people consider as being spiritual. The Perfect Masters and the Spiritual Hierarchy want to work with everyone on the planet (as well as the whole of Creation).
The world we live in has people in it aligned with the Dark Lodge and people aligned with the Light Lodge. The Dark Lodge aim to slow or stop spiritual progress, to ruin societies and degrade the world generally, and aim to dominate and control, reduce freedom, corrupt and tyrannise. The Light Lodge aim to promote spirituality, promote health, happiness, wellbeing, freedom, responsibility and love. The Dark Lodge and Light Lodge work through different people who may or may not know this. It helps to be able to psychometrise people, those that have a position of power or who are trying to gain a position of power, those people who are influential, who wield financial power to influence governments or societies, and those that claim to speak for groups of people.
When pyschometrising people it is important to offer up your own expectations and prejudices as what you think is going on may be different to what is actually going on in the big scheme of things. Life is quite complex at times. To give you an example, I once watched on the television a demonstration that was happening. It was an anti-war demonstration. Most people would consider that war is a terrible way of sorting things out and resolving issues, though for some people it can be a means to invade and take over another country’s land. From there point of view war is what they will do because they want to.
I looked at an anti-war demonstrator expecting them to like peace and want peace for everyone. That was my prejudice and my expectation. Instead I saw a heart filled with hate and an energy field filled with negative energy. They were anti, but they weren’t pro anything positive. On further consideration I sensed the demonstration had a very negative feel to it, and wasn’t in any positive way contributing to the reduction and ending of war.
With regards to psychometrising, you could check out politicians (watch out for your own pre-judging), group leaders, heads of organisations, industrialists, heads of countries, bankers, heads of media companies, journalists, TV and radio presenters. You can check out musicians, singers and actors, and anyone else you feel like taking a look at.
Before psychometrising, it is very useful to prepare your system.
Imagine roots growing out of your feet and base of your spine down into the ground a deep as the roots can go. Let white light flow into you through the top of your head and down through your body and chakras. A flow of white light can flow in through your head, through your body and down through your legs into the ground. Let the white light flow particularly into your heart centre in the middle of your chest, and also into your third eye. More white light flows down and gently wraps around you. This will aid you in psychometrising.
OK, so you have a guide. What does that mean? What is a guide? Where do they come from?
Everyone now has a guide, like a spiritual personal trainer. These guides have a Divine nature, so they know the answers about how to get you from where you are now to where you could potentially be at the end of this life. Your Divine guide will most likely stay with you through all your other lives. They are a major guide for you and the picture they work with is your spiritual journey over many lifetimes, not just this life with its specific karma, life experiences, personality and lifestyle.
Then there are other guides who are with you for part or all of your life. They may be very apparent to you or they may work in the background and work with you on the non-physical inner planes, or they may work through you. It isn’t necessary to be aware of your guide or to be aware of communicating with them. They can work in quite subtle, unobtrusive ways.
A lot of medical people such as doctors, surgeons and nurses have guides that specialize in healing. They may have one or two guides that come through when they work with patients. Musicians and composers can have guides that specialize in music, which can be a powerful medium for conveying inspirational and healing emotions, and patterns of healing energy. Artists can have guides who specialize in conveying healing energy through art, and who help and work through the artists. Some meditation teachers, healers will have guides that can come through and provide healing energy and spiritual energy. Psychics and clairvoyants may have guides that pass on the gossip about people.
As the person works over time, then the guide works, experiences and understands more about life down here. The guides develop spiritually and get spiritual advancement as well, which usually means more work and service.
Guides are usually assigned to a person / soul before they incarnate with their life purpose and karma which helps them with that purpose, and the guide may have been with that soul for several lifetimes building up the working relationship.
If a person goes through a change in their level of consciousness which might entail a change of karma and spiritual responsibility and work, their guide or guides may be changed during a lifetime.
With what I would call working guides like these, what helps them be effective is for us to look after our aura and chakras, and have a way of living that keeps our energy up and provides enough peace.
It helps them to work through our systems and provide us with any energy, emotion, and mental inspiration we need, and love.
Basics first. Having enough good sleep, enough rest, enough exercise, a good diet, enough meditation, enough being out in Nature, and whatever else does you good. Not too much screen time. These have massive impact on our energy system.
Then cleaning up and keeping clean our chakras and aura is really important. People have different ways of doing this. One way is to use a meditation to clean and energise all the chakras or centres. It is very handy to use a meditation to button up or close chakras when they don’t need to be open to protect the energy, and have a meditation to protect the aura. If the guide works with high frequency energy then a grounding meditation to put down roots and bring in the astral body is very useful to prevent being floaty and ungrounded. There are some forms of exercise that can be very grounding for people who don’t find it easy to visualise roots going down into the ground.
Then smile, think positive, and be loving and kind to self and others, and feel that inner peace. Not always easy, I know; life is full of lessons, and sometimes it’s the guides giving us a test to help with our development!
In general, it is also very helpful to have the physical space that we live in energetically cleared and cleaned. If the physical space feels calm, clear and supportive it is good for us and good for the guide(s). It may be the case that the work we do is done in what we might think is a tough environment, for example a doctor in an emergency department of a hospital, but guides also get training to handle the ambience of the environment, and some purposes are carried out in pressurised situations. Having a bit of a calm space at home helps with the unwinding of tension, and having the nurturing that is necessary.
In charge of our spiritual journey in this lifetimes and future lifetimes is the Divine guide. They won’t take away our karma because we want to escape it, but they can help as they have the overview. They know the route on our journey Home. So we can ask for help. They don’t negotiate though and aren’t open to debate. Things have to be done their way. That’s why they are spiritual trainers. They are there for when people are ready to say, “OK God, Thy will be done, not my will”.
Spring in the Northern hemisphere, flowers are appearing and it’s a time for spring cleaning. Open the house or flat, let in the fresh air. Dust, clean, polish and throw out what is old energy (and recycle).
Get rid of the residues of old stagnant energy, and let in fresh, lively and vibrant energy. Buy some flowers and lift the energy of the place. It’ll help your energy feel a lot better and you’ll feel happy.
Your phone. Your computer (laptop, tablet). What about the energy of these? Do they ever get a clean?
We wash clothes so they are clean. People will do what it takes to clean crystals and recharge them. The electronic devices, we recharge, but cleaned? Usually not.
If you are sensitive, intuitive and / or your third eye is open, then take a moment to feel into or look at your phone, laptop etc. If you can sense lovely energy or negativity in a place or a person or objects, then you can sense it in these.
Your laptop, phone, tablet or computer is a physical object, and physical objects can hold energy. People use their phones to access the internet and the websites on this. They store apps on their phones. They make calls and receive calls from people and organisations.
In the physical world, if you have a working relationship with someone else, or a friendship, or a dislike, or a deeper relationship with them, then you will have some karma with them. You will also have cordings between you and the other person. The quality of the cordings will depend on the kind of relationship and how loving (or otherwise) it is. if you imagine you have, say, nine circles around you, then that person will be on one of the circles, either close in, or further away. The closer they are, the more they have access to your system, and the more you are in their energy field as well. As you could imagine, some people can have very full circles, with people having access into their emotions, thoughts and energy, so that their space isn’t their own. This can make it difficult to get quiet mental space and space for meditation. A person with a full space can have a lot of input coming in that isn’t theirs but which is really somebody else’s. This is why doing healing meditations to clean up your aura and chakras, and space around you is so important, as is practising buttoning up chakras and protecting your aura.
This physical world was the situation before phones and before computers and the internet. The life we now live has changed.
We know that physical objects can have energy, including computers, etc.. But so too can things in a virtual world or in cyberspace (can’t use the word “objects”, but I could perhaps use the phrase “virtual entities” because it describes them so well).
When someone has an idea for a website or app or service they have firstly a mental idea, which is mental energy. They work on their concept and put in mental energy and also put in some emotion, which is emotional energy. The concept becomes a virtual reality and has in it mental and emotional energy, which builds and builds. It literally becomes an entity. As more energy is built up, it can form a basic intelligence and spirit, and emotional qualities and can exist on the astral levels. As the concept goes live on the internet and has more and more users who bring in their own mental and emotional energy, the entity grows and morphs, developing it’s own nature. You can sense the energy of a website, app or service intuitively, with your third eye, or imagine it as a ball or cloud of energy, and you can look at it and notice how you feel about it.
Some apps, websites and services are benign and look and feel good. The cordings from them, like coloured strands or ropes will look and feel OK. Other websites, apps and services don’t have your best interests at heart. They may not be what they seem. It could be the case that you are the product and they want your data, perhaps the site has been designed to hook you in, or that it is addictive to be on, or your opinions are surreptitiously being swayed or nudged. Or it pushes negativity. Some sites and apps can act vampirically and take energy from you for a little snack (astral entities particularly like emotional energy or etheric life energy). These will intuitively feel and look awful, and the cordings will look unpleasant as well.
Things in cyberspace and in the virtual world have mental and emotional energy and are real.
You can receive positive energy form an app, site or service, or message or email, and this projects positive and loving energy into your system. And it will feel pleasant to wonderful. You can receive negative energy, and that goes into your system, as you are likely to be wide open energetically sitting in front of your laptop. And you will feel that negative energy.
There is a lot of things on the internet that carry some negativity, or that can host negative emotional and mental energy, and negative astral entities. It is very easy for a pristine new phone, laptop, computer or tablet with clean energy to build up negative energy in the circuits and develop into an astral home for the astral critters or bigger astral entities. The astral space can seem bigger than the physical space the object takes up. Doorways can be formed in the astral space as well, letting in uninvited guests.
It is really worth cleaning up devices that connect to the internet, every now and again, and also after going onto a site with a negative feel, or after being on the receiving end of some negative energy.
A negative input of energy can happen if someone has placed malware onto your device or hacked into it, as this will form a negative cording and a conduit for downloads of negative gunk from a negative source. It’s a virtual jungle out there.
It is possible to clean up the energy so that your experience of being on your device is positive. The first step is to identify what is going on in your device, and you can be creative about how you do this in a way that is easy to pick out information from.
Imagining your device as a house. What does the building look like? What are the rooms like? Are the doors open or closed? Are there a lot of doorways or just a few? How tidy and how clean is the house? Are the rooms well furnished? Plenty of light in there? Or dark and full of shadows? A fresh smell, or a musty, old smell? Any old files stuffed in the attic or down in the basement? What is the atmosphere like in the house? Fresh and vibrant? Calm and peaceful? What’s it like? Pleasant sounds? Is the house clear, or do there appear to be things living in it that you would prefer not to be there? Any blobs? Any faces? Any ghost like shadows?
Perhaps some changes need to be made, rooms cleared, curtains opened, and windows cleaned so the light can flood in. Doorways can be closed, and sealed if need be, and cut flowers in vases placed on tables. (In physical life flowers actually do radiate positive energy freely and selflessly out into the world.)
Can you imagine what your device would look and feel like if it was cleared and cleaned? What would your experience be like of using such a device?
Here is a meditation to help clear up the energy of your device. The first step will be to adjust your own energy first before working on the device. The second step will be to use a blue rose to bring in the right kind of energy to clear and protect your device.
Read this first then try it. In a quiet enough place and in a comfortable position, close your eyes. Take several long and gentle breaths, gently exhaling with each.
Imagine roots growing out of your feet, as deep as they can go into the earth.
Allow nourishing and healing energy from the earth to flow up your roots and into your feet. Allow this energy to flow up into your body, in its own time, all the way up to the top of your head.
Now let gentle and soft very bright white light flow down from high up, directly above you, as if from a white sun. Let this light flow onto your head. Some of this light will flow over you, and some will flow in, down through your centres or chakras in your head. The very bright white light feels very pure, still, and silent (like being in a gentle snowfall).
The very bright white light keeps flowing down your body, down through all your energy centres. It keeps on flowing, down in to your legs, and down to your toes. The very bright white light keeps flowing down, adjusting your energy, dissolving what shouldn’t be there and lifting your energy.
Down through this white light flows a white rose, with the petals open. This white rose flows down to your heart centre in the middle of your chest and stays there, radiating out its essence into you on all levels.
For the next part, have your device in front of you. Read this first and then try.
Again close your eyes. The very bright white light keeps on flowing down. Within this flow of light, flows down a beautiful blue rose, with petals open. It is filled with blue energy. The blue rose comes down to settle in your heart centre in the middle of your chest. One copy of the blue rose, like a hologram, flows through your arm to your hand, and another copy of the blue rose flows down the other arm to the other hand. Placing your hands over the device, imagine these roses flowing down forming a single blue rose which lands on and then goes into the device. Imagine the blue energy from the rose flowing out and around your device, covering it, and then flowing through all parts of your device. As it does this, it clears, dissolves or moves out astral energies, doorways, entities and qualities. The blue rose and its energy clears, removes, and resets the energy. Imagine the blue rose and it’s energy at work for a minute if you can, as white light continues to pour through you. If the blue rose and its blue energy seems to disappear, let another blue rose come down through the very bright white light, and let another round of cleaning and resetting occur.
If you get tired, stop have a break, and go again when you are ready. Repeat if you need to.
When the blue rose and the blue energy have cleaned up your device, then become aware of your own energy, and light the very bright white light flow down for a short while, and let the earth energy flow up at the same time.
When you feel complete, let the images of your roots and the white light fade, and open you eyes.
If you want to be really thorough, you can imagine your device as having nine layers, and with the blue rose and blue light, you work on each layer in turn from top to bottom. Rest as you need to.
Another variation is to visualize blue energy from the rose flowing out from your device to wherever on the internet negative energy came from.
Trying to talk about souls can be tricky, and fascinating at the same time. Souls originate on the Divine Journeys, in the Beyond, which is outside time, which is part of God. Souls are part of God. This is not a straightforward concept as it is so unlike our everyday reality.
When the Avatar comes down into creation every 400 to 700 years in major and minor incarnations, souls, or dropsouls follow the Avatar down through the Divine Journeys into creation (or are poached, which is another story). In creation, with its planes of consciousness (0th, 1st … 6th), there is time, and karma. As time goes by, creation is ever changing and developing, and souls grow as they journey through creation.
Souls fall over time, to the bottom of the zeroth plane, the slowest and least conscious plane. As souls fall, they experience a massive separation from the Divine, from God, and from their own true nature, and the Divine level of their consciousness. This is a shock that remains with the soul, even though their consciousness falls from this exalted state to zero; to a very slow, non-existent state. There remains a deep sadness and grief that is difficult to put a finger on.
Simultaneously, there is an aspect of the soul, outside time, that has experienced and completed everything on the inner planes and on the Divine Journeys. This is a tricky concept and it isn’t really necessary to understand it as it wouldn’t influence the journey of the soul in any case.
The You reading this, in creation, is the extension of soul energy, that is in time. The aspect of your soul on the Divine Journeys, will not be necessarily aware of what is going on with the personality you in creation, as the light is so captivating there. What this aspect of soul Up there is missing out on though is experience of life in creation, and the slow frequency light down here, particularly the dark of the zeroth plane, and also, emotion. Souls come down here to experience emotion.
Souls and divine beings that stay in the Divine Journeys have no idea of what the grand adventure we call life is like down here in creation.
They miss out on the journey down, and they miss out on the journey up the planes and the experiences they gain in this Illusion. Souls with an aspect of themselves down here get to experience the many lifetimes as rock and metal with the heating, flowing, crushing, and erosion, and so on, while having only infinitesimal consciousness.
Then there are the many lifetimes in plant form in the many different environments. They grow, use physical light, put down roots (or live off other plants and sometimes creatures), they can be eaten. Open to the sky they experience weather and starlight. Those in the water experience those environments. They experience long or short lives, fire, drought and so on. With flowers and blossoms they irradiate scents, colour and energy. (From an energy point of view, plants have a fascinating existence.) The consciousness level is a somewhat greater than a rock or metal.
Still on the zeroth plane of consciousness, the soul has many lifetimes in animal form; as worms, insects, fish, birds, reptiles, and mammals. With each change of lifeform there is an incremental change in the level of consciousness. The form that a soul takes depends on the level of consciousness that needs to be experienced. A soul going through the many animal forms experiences a huge variety of conditions, and events that happen to them. They experience instincts and intelligence. They experience emotions (some scientists may disagree, but anyone who has spent time with animals or has a pet will know when an animal is happy or sad or scared, and so on). Animals experience being on their own and in other lives, living as part of a society or group. They eat, sometimes hunt, sometimes get eaten (alive!). Animals communicate and cooperate.
Then come the sub-human lives that are a cross-over point to being human on the zeroth plane. In all this, the soul grows in consciousness, and stores the accumulation of experiences in part of itself.
As a human, lifetime after lifetime up until the top of the third plane of consciousness, the soul builds karma, and then balances it or burns it off from then on up to the top of the sixth plane. As a human the soul gets to experience the full range of what it can mean to be a human being, from the darkest events to the most loving and light. The soul experiences life in a detached way, as it is still very much in the Divine Journeys, while the person down here will experience life through personality, spirit, and the accumulation of all those vast numbers of lifetimes that occurred from rock, plant, and animal upwards. So people can be incredibly animalistic in their thinking and behaviour as their animal past comes to the forefront. This is particularly so in a human lifetime that has a leaning to the Dark Lodge and the negative dark, rather than a lifetime leaning to the light or Light Lodge. Part of spirituality is diminishing or transforming the old animalistic heritage that is rather like very old baggage.
Meditation and doses of light really help here. However, to really appreciate what the light is like, and what Divine energies are like, being in the muck and the mud, and the pain and struggle that happens in creation, provides the contrast. Sometimes to know what something is like you need to experience the opposite. It also provides the crucible through which a soul gains the experience and learning, in the end, transforming it into its full beauty, and with quite a story to tell back on the Divine Journeys.
(re-edited from 2015)
Recently in London in the UK we have had an incident where a group of men from the financial City part of London, and from the media and world of politics had a charity fund raising dinner arranged by an organisation called the Presidents Club. Women were hired to be hostesses. When they arrived for the job they were given skimpy outfits which were very exposing and short. Some of the men were touching and groping the women and treating them as bodies for them to look at and touch. They didn’t treat the women as people. The women were sexualised.
This sexualising and focusing on women (and some cases men) as bodies, and as commodities to play with happens a lot in what I call the 3-D world. You see it in newspapers and magazines and in the media, where the focus of attention is on what is considered to be a physically beautiful woman’s body. The concept of auras and chakras doesn’t exist in this context.
I’ve joined some Facebook pages about spirituality, “awakening”, and meditation recently. One thing I have been struck by is how many photographs and how much artwork there is of young, slim waisted, curvy, women there are, with beautiful faces, and windswept hair, often wearing Native American Indian type adornments, and so on. There’s a suitable attractive background and some words that convey a suitably spiritual sounding message. There is a lot of glamour, which in a spiritual sense means an energy around it that looks flashy but actually has nothing to do with spirituality, and which side-tracks some people.
I find myself thinking that this is like the rest of life, and where are the real people, with real un-Photoshopped bodies? I know full well that a beautiful physical form that some people have bears no relationship to quality of spirituality, or quality of the chakras and aura, or of the spirit or the personality of the person.
What came to mind very quickly is a picture of a truly spiritual woman, who to me is far more interesting than any svelte figure. I have included the picture. It is an old picture of a woman called Hazrat Babajan who came from a Muslim background and who became a Perfect Master. Now here is a picture of a spiritual woman, with a truly awesome energy system. Take a look if you can, or feel he energy. (What she was like is worth discovering, and there is some information about her on the Internet and some old books.)
This focus on the physical body rather than the energy and spirituality is not all just confined to the female form. When I was younger I felt I had a physical body that looked admirable and attractive. Very recently, while taking my shirt off to get changed, my young daughter looked and called out, “you look like a gorilla without hair!” “Well”, I thought, “At least I got sparkly chakras on the inside.” (Such vanity!) Nothing like children and teenagers to keep parents from getting any fancy ideas.
We reincarnate time and time again to experience life and grow in consciousness and understanding. Karma gives us experiences in Life through which our souls can learn and develop.
There are some spiritual laws that show up in karma that people have in a particular lifetime. The spiritual aim of the game of life is to get through the allotted karma for that life. One law is the Law of Saturation. This means that a person gets saturated with one type of situation or experience in their life repeatedly until the soul is saturated with it. Or they may have as many lives as is required of a certain type of experience. For instance, a person can have quite a few lives (say, thirty or more) where they get to look after one particular person and develop their love and their heart centre. Once the person/soul has had enough then they move onto different karma with different situations happening.
Another law that applies a lot to karma is the Law of Opposites. This law often occurs in reincarnation. As an example, in one lifetime a soul can be in a female body, in the next lifetime the soul will be in a male body.
Another example, in one lifetime the soul can be in a personality that is very wealthy. In the next lifetime the soul can be in an existence where it experiences poverty. (The karma is different if a person has used their wealth for the benefit of others rather than being selfish). The Law of Opposites balances things out nicely, and to the soul it is all experience to learn from. That doesn’t mean to say that the personality enjoys the experience, as their attitudes and opinion of what they are going through depends on what the personality mind is like. If they have a “glass half-full” kind of mind, they will enjoy it.
Yet another example, a person/soul can be an aggressor one lifetime and a victim in a future lifetime, quite likely with the same soul. Souls have tended to come into creation in soul families so a soul is likely to have come across the same souls repeatedly, but in different circumstances (friend, enemy, brother, sister, parent, child and so on). On the inner planes, a higher aspect of ourselves will arranging who comes down to do what and with whom. What goes on down here in creation is our karma being worked out with our fellow souls being involved in the goings-on as well.
The Law of Opposites can show up in other ways in the kind of lifetimes we have. Souls have lifetimes where they are linked to the dark lodge, where they learn about and experience lives getting up to no good. On the opposite, souls have lifetimes being linked to the white lodge, and doing good. The karma gets balanced out – usually.
Souls have lives where they are brilliantly clever, and lives where they are slow thinking. They have lives where the soul experiences what it is like to be physically beautiful and lives where they are not physically beautiful.
Where a soul has hurt or killed others in one or more previous lives, in other lives they do the opposite, in a healing capacity or saving lives, perhaps sacrificing their own lives to do so. In these ways, karmic debts are paid.
Souls will have lives where they are not interested in spirituality, and lives where they are (like this one if you are reading this).
There are many other examples of the rich variety of experiences and lives that the Law of opposites generates. What has been mentioned above is only a small part of what is possible, and doesn’t even include examples of lives a soul will experience in the mineral, plant or animal kingdoms.
At this moment in time issues to do with being female and being male, and sexuality are important as a lot of spiritual energy is flowing in to move them forward (which usually means a bit of a shakedown and a lot of karma and emotions gone through until a new balance is achieved). Gender and sexuality from a reincarnation point of view can give us a new perspective:
In human lifetimes, souls take on lives with different genders so that different karma can be worked on. The spiritual law of opposites can apply so that a male (genetically) will next life have a female (genetically) lifetime. A female will have a next lifetime as a male. This way a soul has experience as each sex, and of what it means to be that sex. A soul will experience lifetimes where their physical anatomy is atypical of male or female anatomy.
A soul will also have lifetimes experiencing different sexualities, and lifetimes where they feel they are female in a male body, and a male in a female body, and so on, along with feeling male in a male body, and female in a female body. To the soul, this is all experience over the many, many lifetimes.
What would it be like if you are female now and suddenly remembered how you were as a male? Or how about if you are male now and remembered how you were, what life was like in a previous female life?
Usually people don’t get to remember their past lives or feel them. When a soul incarnates there is a process where the soul enters the energy field around the planet through the ring-pass-not. When the soul goes through this there is a forgetting, an amnesia so that any information that would interfere with this life being lived afresh is blocked. Because of this we don’t get to remember what it is like to be a female or be a male, or to have a specific sexuality or a lifetime when sexuality wasn’t important to us.
There is a lot in here if you read in between the lines that can be food for thought.

LIFE is all about souls going on a spiritual journey in Creation, gaining experience and understanding, lifetime after lifetime, until God-realization, when the soul rejoins the Divine.
Humans are born, live and die many, many times in the reincarnatory process. Before being human, souls have many, many lifetimes in the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms. As souls go through these lifetimes they make karma. The karma can be positive or negative, it can be physical, astral or mental karma. There is some balancing of karma, but most balancing occurs in later lives. Towards the end, karma is more or less balanced.
In Life through many, many lives souls experience a near infinite number of situations that Life can provide. In this way souls learn, gain understanding of Life, of themselves and of what God is not, and what God is. Souls also increase in consciousness.
In human lifetimes a soul experiences being sane and stable in some lives. In other lifetimes a soul will experience what we currently think of as a mental illness. All souls in human form will have experienced many mental illnesses in their lifetimes. Suicidal thoughts, illnesses related to food, depression, anxiety, the various addictions, anxiety, fear and panic attacks, psychopathic tendencies, sociopathic tendencies, narcissism, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, schizophrenia, madness, and so on. We have all been there in some lifetime.
A while ago I met a heart surgeon in a hospital while visiting a friend. The heart surgeon’s energy was awesome. His aura was refined, subtle, strong and complex. His centres/chakras were tough and looked capable of safely handling large amounts of very negative energy. His mind looked calm, strong and positive. There were lines of energy running into his hands that looked crystalline. He radiated healing energy. He would have had many lifetimes of healing experience to get him to this lifetime. There was a big healing guide behind him, with other guides in the background. If anyone needed heart surgery, this was one great surgeon to do the operation.
People usually have a fixed notion of what a healer is and how they work. But there are more possibilities of how and where healing happens in life. Healing is an act of interference in someone’s body and or energy with positive and loving intent and results. It alters the patient’s timeline to make it more positive and it changes the patient’s karma. The healer might transmute and dissipate the patient’s old karma, or they might absorb the patient’s karma (it could be said this isn’t the best way to deal with it).
Staying in medicine, you can find nurses and paramedics with big heart centres, auras and centres set up for healing, and some will have a healing guide with them.
I once knew a science teacher who had a big, shining heart centre who naturally radiated out to students and colleagues. This, allied with a positive attitude and warm personality made a continual impact.
Musicians and singers are well placed to give an input of positive and healing energy and can affect a lot of people. Ariane Grande has a big, light filled aura that she radiates light out from to her audience, to soothe and lift them. There is a lot of heart energy in there. She has quite a few guides with her that overshadow her and provide energy. A system like this takes lifetimes to develop, and it takes lifetimes to build up the capability to have good working relationships with the guides.
A singer I liked and still like is Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. Though a bit more subdued now (as the bulk of the work is done), his heart centre was like a blazing sun, and his aura was massive and radiated such a huge amount of high quality light. Also, the energy he radiated was (and is) very new. New frequencies, not much old law. His energy would break down old law energy, and gently radiated in new law and creativity. He looked like the sun. A true rock and roll star, and spiritual revolutionary (I like spiritual revolutionaries).
A present day global superstar is Coldplay’s Chris Martin. He has a massive aura that blazes healing light. Being at the top of the second plane, he can provide a lot of healing energy to a lot of people on the second, first and zeroth plane. His heart centre and the centres above that radiate strongly. Again, he has some guides working with him and through him, and again it takes lifetimes to get to that point.
Pavarotti was an opera singer on the fifth plane with a tremendous heart centre and throat centre. The kind of singer who would make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. He could massively heal and lift emotions. Again lifetimes of training went into this.
In every day life there are to be found people who through their positive energy and strong emotional body and mind are able to impart positive energy to change emotions, change thoughts and beliefs, and raise self-confidence and self-belief. They just need to be near people, and when they talk you can feel the energy. I have come across sports people, coaches and teachers like this, and the odd, rare politician ( Nelson Mandela really stands out).
These are just some examples of people with healing abilities working with large groups of people and with individuals. There are plenty of other roles and jobs in life where someone with healing ability can make a difference to others, including healers and therapists.
When we get interested in spirituality, when we wake up to it, we sometimes want direction and some teaching, or more waking up (which is possible). We want a spiritual teacher or a Master.
There are different kinds of masters or Masters. To get a feel for this topic it helps to know about the planes of consciousness in Creation and a soul’s place in all this, so here is a brief explanation.
Souls come down from the Divine, from what we can call God, into Creation. Most souls when they come down up until now were a bit sleepy or asleep, with the potential for infinite consciousness. They are not aware of what’s going on in that place called Creation. The souls after a while drop down to the bottom-most part of Creation, which is the bottom of the zeroth (0th) plane of consciousness. The light on the zeroth plane is dark and slow, and consciousness is extremely limited, literally zero at the bottom of the zeroth plane. The soul has gone from infinite consciousness to zero consciousness.
There are other planes of consciousness. The first plane, where the light is a bit brighter and a bit quicker than on the zeroth plane. Then the second plane where the light is brighter still and even quicker and so consciousness is more expanded. Then there are the third plane, the fourth plane, the fifth plane, and the sixth plane where the light is very bright and intense white light, and where consciousness of the soul is very expanded. Then there is the huge gap in consciousness to the Divine Journeys which are part of God.
Souls start off at the bottom of the zeroth plane in the mineral kingdom with virtually no consciousness. Then lifetime after lifetime they reincarnate back into mineral form and each time there is a minute increment in consciousness. Eventually still in the zeroth plane, the soul incarnates into a lifeform that is in the plant kingdom with a slightly higher level of consciousness for the soul to gain experience of life there. After many lifetimes in the plant kingdom, gaining consciousness and experience, and still in the zeroth plane, the soul incarnates as an animal in the animal kingdom. The soul dies and is born again and again in the reincarnatory process, each time having a lifeform with a minutely higher degree of consciousness. Eventually the soul takes a sub-human form, and then, still in the zeroth plane, the soul takes a human form.
The soul has a consciousness that is still limited. This consciousness minutely increases lifetime after lifetime until the soul goes up to the bottom of the first plane of consciousness. This level of consciousness is greater than the zeroth plane and less than the consciousness higher up the first plane, and less than the consciousness on the second plane and so on. Eventually, eventually, the soul reincarnates and increases its experience of Life and consciousness, all the way up to the top of the sixth plane. Here, the soul’s consciousness is very expanded, and it’s a place where karma can be easily balanced, prior to God realisationship, with the soul going onto the Divine Journeys.
A person whose soul is on the sixth plane will have a far greater degree of consciousness than a soul on the zeroth or the first or the second plane for instance (and the third, fourth and fifth planes). People with sixth plane souls (and fifth plane souls) are very unlikely to say they are enlightened, have special powers or authority etc because they have experienced enough of Life to realise there is so much more to learn, and they appreciate the absolutely massive gulf between where they are now and the consciousness and other qualities that are there for God-realised souls on the Divine Journeys.
Usually for souls it is one way traffic from the zeroth plane to the sixth plane. However, if someone abuses the enormous power they have available to them on the fourth plane they can get dropped down to lower down the fourth plane, or lower, including right back down to the bottom of the zeroth plane, back to a mineral life again! These days people on higher planes can also be dropped. The Avatar had dropped one soul down from the sixth plane to the second so they would have millions of more lives of experience to make them more useful to the Avatar when they met again (this happen to a person called Eruch who served Meher Baba). Having more experience of life than the normal can also be useful for spiritual teachers or Perfect Masters because they understand more about Life, which makes them more effective and helpful to other souls.
The main Master is the Avatar who comes down to earth every 400 to 700 years in major and in minor incarnations ( Krishna, Ram, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed- though said he was only a prophet, and Meher Baba who dropped his body in 1969). Many of the incarnations are ones where they keep a low profile. Even in the major incarnations they will only gather around them a small number of followers to do the work, even though they may make contact or be seen by large numbers of people as they do their work. The Avataric work involves altering the timelines of creation and humanity to get them back on track, and for the spiritual advancement of all souls in creation. There are plenty of accounts available online of people meeting Meher Baba if you want to find out how people felt or what they experienced when they met him. He said he had come to awaken people and not teach as we had been given plenty of words already. He would communicate to people, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. This time around, he made all the major decisions for the next three thousand years, and altered the timelines in his universal work. There are accounts of his work in a series of books called “Lord Meher” and these can be read free online. He worked with ordinary people, in the East and the West, he worked with Masts (God intoxicated people who care only for God and who are like spiritual generators), and undertook other types of spiritual work. The work around the time of the Second World War is quite illuminating.
To help the Avatar when they are not on earth, there have always been five Perfect Masters. These hold the qualities of Bliss, Wisdom, Knowledge, Truth and Power. Whereas the Avatar has access to all the Divine Journeys in their system, the Perfect Masters used to have access to the first, second and third Divine Journeys. As these are infinitely big, that is a lot of energy they can work with to bring into Creation to make changes. The Perfect Masters have infinite consciousness, are aware of creation as Illusion as they are aware of Reality. They are at the centre of creation and of each being in creation. Every moment they are doing universal work.
There are 51 other people on this planet who are God-realized, whose consciousness is on the lower Divine Journeys. Some of these can have a role like a saint or a Master, and they have access to Divine Journey energy and light. An example of this is Mother Meera in Germany, who brings through the Paramatman Light. God-realized people have access to Divine guides who help them in their work, especially the Perfect Masters. Archangels are sixth plane and angels are fifth plane, and the Perfect Masters as aspects of God, being on the Divine Journeys, direct the Archangels and angels, as they have the authority as an earned right. Also, importantly, being infinite, they can handle the full mental energy of the Archangels and angels.
There is a gigantic gap in consciousness between the Divine Journeys and the planes of consciousness in creation. What we call masters on the sixth, fifth, fourth planes and so on, only have access to the energy and light (mental or astral) on their plane or lower.
Some energies and abilities on some planes can look spectacular. For instance, the energy on the third plane can be used by saints on the third plane or higher to perform what would be called minor miracles, such as creating perfume as they rub their fingers together, or getting ash to grow out of statues. This is energy, not spirituality, which is about a person’s connection with God. When someone has that connection, miracles like that are meaningless.
There is a way a person can have higher plane energy flowing through them. A person in everyday life, or someone who has a saint or a master role, can be overshadowed by a Perfect Master, who can flow energy through and get work done depending on the strength of the person’s energy system. Perfect Masters will also work through their agents who are placed on different planes, though they won’t necessarily seem like masters, and in fact may look very ordinary, so the work gets done without any fuss or glamour.
A person may also be overshadowed by a being on the inner planes and bring through teachings and energy. So someone on the second plane could be overshadowed on the inner planes by another person on the fifth plane. Or they could be overshadowed by a guide on the inner planes who passes through energy and information. Though the energy and information from a fifth plane or sixth plane being won’t be of the same standard as from a Perfect Master. Someone on the zeroth, or first or second plane might think it is great, and they could still get some energy or healing from it because it is from a higher plane and will speed up their karma a bit. But if a person has been around a God-realized being, or a Perfect Master, or if they are old enough to have been around the Avatar, they would know there is a Universe of difference between the energy and teaching of someone on the Divine Journeys, and someone on the planes of consciousness. Still, got to start somewhere, and someone carrying out the master role might in many lifetimes end up being a Perfect Master.
The whole thing about finding a master or spiritual teacher is a tricky business. People who want spiritual direction and who want a teacher are putting their trust in someone they don’t know, and as learners, they are likely not to be able to know what to look for in a teacher. Some teachers are good and loving, with good intentions. Some teachers are in it for motives other than being loving and compassionate to the people who have put their faith in them. It might be for power, for money, for control, for sex, or to boost their own ego. Or the person could be overshadowed by a being or entity on the inner planes who sounds plausible, but is actually twisted and bringing through energy that damages or ensnares and controls. (I experienced this with some people pretending to teach about angels. I wrote about it on my blog. I did get out of the situation when I realized I was feeling wrong.)
In life we connect up with people, including potential spiritual teachers and masters because of karma. We will have met them before in some context in one or more previous lives. Our karma is there to give us experience, and sometimes we need the lesson that being with someone gives us, until we have learned the lesson and no longer require the connection.
In life, knowing how to discern what is right or good for us really helps. Some people have a gut instinct and follow it. Some people have a good intuition, or a very helpful guide, or they have an open third eye and can look at the energy of potential situations and their timelines to help them make good choices. If a person is vulnerable, it is easy for them to be pushed into something unsafe, though. The easiest trick in the world is to make them feel special and loved, but ensnare them.
There is a lot of choice out there. People can make a karmic connection, and still check out the other person, the potential teacher or master. Here is a way. Imagine going through their energy to their heart centre. Imagine how it feels, looks, smells like and sounds like. If all seems good, then wonderful. Let that help you make a choice.
This a gentle healing and relaxing meditation, with a lovely energy. Sometimes gentle can help a healing go deep.
Find yourself sitting in a very Beautiful place on moonless still night, sitting on the grassy ground in a hollow. You can hear the sound of water flowing in small stream nearby.
In the air around you are clouds of tiny white sparks that move gently and slowly. They light up the space with a gentle milky white glow.
The tiny white sparks seem to have an intelligence. A cloud of them move towards you, gently touch your face, your head, and your body. The white sparks gently flow through your skin, they gently light you up on the inside, spreading a healing, silent glow.
The cloud of tiny white sparks moves slowly away, lighting up another area of the grassy glade.
There are some clouds of light blue sparks. These too are intelligent. A cloud of these light blue sparks drifts around you. The light blue sparks touch the skin on your face, and land on your body, arms and head. The light blue sparks flow into you, into a core column of energy inside you which goes from around the top of your head to the base of your spine, and which is made up of fine lines of white light and light particles which move, shimmer and glow with pure energy, aliveness and consciousness. This vertical body of light is a core energy in you, neither male or female, timeless, going back into the distant past and into to the very far future.
The light blue sparks of light flow around, and in, and up and down this core column of light inside you, making this light inside you glow light blue, the glow flowing back in time and forward into the future. Let yourself feel the glow.
Now there are sparks of gold light gently moving in clouds. The tiny sparks of gold light gently land on you, soft as snowflakes, on your face, head, arms and body. The tiny gold sparks flow into you. They move into your nervous system, into your brain and spine and they flow along your nerves, bathing them in gold light. They ever-so-gently add some of their light to your nervous system, gently calming and energising it.
After a while, the clouds of gold sparks move off away.
The morning lights up the horizon as you sit and watch, and you can see more clearly the grassy hollow. The dawn comes as the sun rises bright to behold.
Now let the images fade.
Become aware of your body, and open your eyes.
Meditation can mean lots of things depending on what resonates with you.
You can meditate to experience calm inside you, or to calm yourself with feedback. Or you can meditate to watch your mind, or to discard thoughts, and stay present and not have your attention wander (or wonder). You can be mindful. Or go for an empty mind.
Minds are tricky, and with each lifetime you get a different mind, well, a collection of minds; the unconscious, the personality mind (which is based very much on personal preferences, your culture and language, and experience, and how your feelings are wired up, so it’s quite personal). Then there is a body mind, and a higher mind. Which mind to focus on then?
Or after lifetimes you give up on those minds and start meditating on other things, and there are plenty of other things for a human to meditate on. It very much depends on what you think it means to be human. So, what does it mean to be human?
You can think of yourself as a human and that all that is spiritual about yourself is your mind (or one of your minds, if you see what I mean). But there is much more to people than that.
Now when you incarnated, and came into the fused egg and sperm (the zygote is the biological term), or when your soul touched that physical material with its energy, will and intent, the first part of you to start up was your heart centre or chakra. The heart centre is very much a point of connection for the soul.
The heart centre as it happens, is a very good place to meditate on. What happens there, spreads out into the other centres. These developed after the heart centre.
The heart centre isn’t like the mind in that it’s like the origin, rather than an effect, which the mind is like. So the heart centre is truly a great place to meditate on.
It is also possible to meditate on the full set of centres or chakras as a whole, as a system, including the centres of the head.
What else does it mean to be human? It boils down to sensitivity and openness, which can lead on to personal experience from which you can learn consciously, and also subconsciously. Having another person tell you about something is no substitute for personal experience. Even an advanced spiritual master would get you to test out what you hear from them (and then later, when you figure out the quality of them you may find it is really a good idea to accept their word as it really moves you along spiritually).
Humans have a physical body, an etheric body surrounding this (when people have amputations they often still feel the limb is still there – it is etherically), an astral body, and a mental body surrounding the whole lot. There is a sheath of energy around the these and the centres called the aura. when all these parts are locked into the physically body, a person will feel solid and grounded. If they are not locked, they will feel, and sometimes look spacey and ungrounded. There’s a fair bit to meditate on here.
Then in all of this, there is a physical elemental that drives to keep the physical shell alive. There is a personality which matches a persons karmic package for that lifetime and which can help spiritually as a motivator and anchor, or not. There is a person’s spirit which is a fairly complex mix, the minds as mentioned, and the soul. The soul is very much not as smart or amazing as people think it is, though that is another story. Once again, there is quite a lot to meditate on.
Then a person’s soul, and therefore the person, exist on one of the planes of consciousness, from the lowest, zeroth, to the sixth plane. Depending on the plane, there is physical light, and also astral light of varying frequency, and mental light of varying frequency and speed. “The light” can most definitely be something to meditate on, but it depends on what light.
When people take drugs what they experience is the astral light on the zeroth and first plane at the most. Definitely not where it’s at spiritually. Dullsville.
Meditation can be used to access light from the fifth and sixth plane, which can certainly be something. On these planes there are some wonderful energy which can be in the form of light, which can have very positive effects on you.
Beyond, the fifth and sixth plane energies and light, there are energies and light of a Divine nature, such as the Paramatman light, or first, second and third Divine Journey energies and light. These are amazing to meditate with.
To work with these requires a connection with, say, a Perfect Master or an agent that they can work through, or some other person with access to these energies. There needs to be a connection so they can oversee what is going on and ensure that not too much light is given, or the one on the receiving end is toast! It can take several years to come down to earth from an overload of light, or it can overload the heart and the physical body can’t handle it. So common sense means that a person meditating with this light needs to looked after.
This Divine light has an intelligence, a spirit, so when it goes into the various levels of your being, it can interact with you in ways that are required and allowed at that time. It really is quite amazing, and the Silence and Stillness that comes with Divine light is something else, and can take you into other levels of what it means to be human.
There’s lots more that I haven’t mentioned here, which I’ll leave to later.
(I updated and added new material after a request for information about chakras.)
The view of most people interested in chakras or centres is that there are seven main ones. If you look at diagrams on the Internet you will usually view a person seated in a lotus position with seven coloured or patterned circles representing their chakras.
Was this always the case? Will it always be this way?
Chakras or centres help us interact with the energies of the world and Universe around us, and spiritual energies that come in that can continually change us. For example, the heart centre is the one the soul forms first, and it can receive and send out love, as well as receive and host some divinely inspired energies. The third eye (which is opening for everyone so we can all be clairvoyant – which is a bit of a mixed blessing as we get to see the unpleasant stuff as well as the lovely) helps us to interact with information from our universe. The base centre, which is so essential for literally rooting us into the earth, and providing the solid grounding needed for spiritual life. The sexual centre is about creativity and mostly procreation, and ownership (why there is possessivenous as in having a possession when someone has a sexual partner). The throat centre is about expression and communication. The crown centre at the top of the head in the seven chakra system is about spirituality and having spiritual energy and information. The solar plexus is concerned with emotions and is linked to thinking. It is also the body’s brain (while the personality mind is in the head). It is involved in sending out emotional energy and receiving it. The lower three centres, the base, the sexual centre and the solar plexus, are the ones most easily targetted with negative energy as they are the oldest. There are other centres.
Centres are important to focus on in meditation, as keeping them functioning and in a pristine state are essential to spiritual development and so how we express ourselves in life.
In people, the centres are large or small depending on how active they are, and are bright or dark depending on what the people think or get up to. People who use tinder or grindr for example, can develop quite black sexual centres which shows the energy that is building up in their sexual centre. This is linked to a build up of timelines in the sexual centre and the colour of the centre reflects the type of karma that is being built up that will need to be balanced in future lives.
I should put up a meditation to check out the colour of a person’s heart centre which gives a good reflection on their character. You can then check out people you come across, and it’s educational to take a look at the people on the TV. Once I found myself in a conference of people involved in the arms trade (long story, that). There were more than a few black hearts and some bats wings which indicated dark lodge status. They were an interesting mob.
A lot of the new children coming in have very bright centres, as they land on this earth to bring about some required changes.
The number of centres we require changes as time in Creation goes on. This is due to the process that creation is going through, and because the frequency and the types of energy we need to assimilate change.
There have been five root races of humanity going back into the dim and distant past. The first one was the Adamic root race, which was essentially etheric (plus astral) rather than physical, with a base centre and a sexual centre. Next came the Hypoborean, which would have had an additional solar plexus centre. Then came the Lemurian root race, then the Atlantean root race. Not sure how many centres they had but I think the Lemurian could be telepathic, so that means they would have the heart centre, the throat centre, and the third eye at least. Possibly not the crown centre at the top of the head, because the Atlanteans showed they weren’t very good at spiritual direction, in that they got it wrong and ended up being wiped out in what is biblically called the Great Flood. (There are also sub-root races that incarnate usually to get specific things to happen in various parts of the world.) After the Atlanteans the root race which then came in was the Aryan root race, named after a group of people that developed in northern India. This root race had the full seven major chakras that can been seen depicted in old pictures of chakras. Meditation techniques developed in Buddhism and the spiritual practices in India were well suited to this kind of chakra system.
This fifth root race, the Aryan root race is coming to an end. There is an energetic push to bring this to completion. This means fragmentation in societies, both global and national, upheaval, uncertainty as things break up and timelines suddenly seem to dissipate and end, emotional upheaval. What is coming in is the sixth root race, and new timelines are starting with new energy. Sixth root race people have one hundred chakras or centres, whether they are aware of them or not. This means they can take in and receive as well as give out a bigger range of energy than the Aryan root race humans. They can process energy and emotions and thought in new ways, and handle more spiritual energies. The sixth root race is the next step in humanity. To put it into perspective though, there will be, in the distant future, a seventh root race, and further into the future, an eight root race, and so on, Each root race will be able to handle more spiritual energy than the root race before and will have even more chakras or centres, and they will most likely call them something different by then, and may not even have to have a physical, sound based language, but might be telepathic. Humanity will evolve energetically, and in how their body looks.
How do chakras or centres appear or come about? The change makers in the world, and in creation are the five Perfect Masters, and these beings are responsible for making changes, following the plans of the Avatar who incarnates every 400 to 700 years in major and minor incarnations.
Doing the meditations presented on the blog, the gold, white and blue light ones for example, will open up your new centres. Have fun.
“Spiritual Awakening” crops up on social media in spirituality groups quite a bit, but what is it? There are plenty of answers, and it depends who answers.
Years ago I read some books published by Lucis Trust which were written in around the 1920’s. They were channelled books about spirituality and they went into very great detail on a lot of topics. They weren’t an easy read but they were interesting and you had to concentrate hard. Those were different times to how we take in information on social media.
One point that was made was that people are at different stages of spiritual development. Some are beginners, then there are novices, then there are adepts, and then masters, with levels in between. A very simple analogy could be the system of coloured belts that exist in various martial arts disciplines to show the different levels of expertise. In spirituality there are lots of levels, and it helps to also consider reincarnations.
Life, from the very first physical life, through the very many reincarnations, to the last life is a spiritual journey of developing consciousness. From being totally unconscious to moving into Universal Mind (or Infinite Mind) upon achieving God-realization. There are lots of stages along the way.
A person will be somewhere along their spiritual journey, whether they are a beginner in terms of their spiritual development, or a novice and so on. In the early stages of their life they may, or they may not, show a leaning towards spirituality.
Beings on the inner planes will be able to have a sense of a person’s spiritual level or aptitude, as they can easily read the aura, the chakras and any glow of light that person is giving out.
When the timing is right and the opportunity is there, these beings on the inner planes can give an energetic nudge, or a blast of energy, and really wake up the person to a new way of feeling, thinking and of viewing themselves and the world. Sometimes the inner plane beings can be gentle, or take advantage of an event in a person’s life, or whack some energy in to cause a crisis and really shove the person towards a change of life and a change of awareness.
The person has a spiritual awakening.
In some lives, that are rest lives, it doesn’t happen. But to take one of the very many steps up in spiritual consciousness is a spiritual awakening. In all the lifetimes that a person has they will increase their level of consciousness many, many times. That means they will have many, many spiritual awakenings.
To do it in one jump would be too much, the person would absolutely not be able to handle the energy, never mind the massive, gigantic change in perception and thinking. Besides, the soul would miss out on all that experience, and the journey is as important to savour as the end result. Though is that really the end result? Cycles within cycles, within cycles. There is always more.
In this lifetime, I think back to the awakening I had as I learnt T’ai Chi to deal with a relatives death. I learnt about energy, myself and life in a new way. My life changed and there grew more distance between myself and old friends while I made new friendships (all according to my karma).
Some strange and dark dreams, an emotional breakdown accompanied by a physical clearing that I won’t go into, and a dive into various therapies led the way to another shift in awareness. I tried to absorb some spiritual concepts into my life and into my thinking. Again, there was a shift away from an old life, and old way of thinking, into a new life, and new thinking.
I had been reading a book called “A Course in Miracles” and using the daily lessons. I was still doing T’ai Chi which I think is truly fantastic and still do every now and again. I was between flats and staying in a spare room at a friend’s shared house. The other people took heroin and were more interested in that than looking after the place, which was grubby with a kitchen sink that had life evolving in it. I felt depressed. I had been reading a book that went on about seeing the beauty of God in things, which contrasted vividly with the place I was staying in. I thought about some of the things that I had seen that I thought were beautiful. I thought about the sunshine on a beach, snow covered countryside and falling snowflakes, I thought about the morning sun on a girlfriend’s hair. I thought about God being in these situations. And then I thought, “If I can see these things that God is in, then that means that God is inside me”. Immediately my life and my world fell upside down, or right side up. It was like a physical shock wave going through me. I smiled, and in that smile was the feeling of so much joy, of so much love, and peace and wonderment. My heart opened.
The next day at a T’ai Chi class in a break, the instructor was talking and asking us what we did for a living out of curiosity. When she asked me, I said that I didn’t know, that I felt I wasn’t sure any more. She looked at me as if I was some kind of fool, so I recounted what had happened the night before. She smiled and laughed and gave me a big hug, saying I had found something very important.
A couple of months after, and I had still been reading “A Course in Miracles” and doing the daily lessons I had an experience on the London Underground. I was sat in the carriage looking at the people and thinking “God is in you and God is in me”. I then thought “I am in you and you are in me” (because God was in me and the other passengers). The carriage filled with white light that seared through me. That evening in my flat, I was in a light filled state, feeling like each cell in my body was vibrating. I looked at objects in turn, saying, quite spontaneously, things like “God is in this chair”, or “God is in this table… window… tree” and so on. The flat looked out over a park and there was a great storm which swayed the huge trees and felled many, and I was vibrating, filled with light, and everything seemed to be filled with vibrating God as well. I was as high as a kite with this energy. I was truly white-lighted, spiritually drunk. It took me years to come back down to earth.
There have been many incremental awakenings since and some new style meditation techniques have played their part. Some awakenings were big, some small, but not so big that the energy blew my head off, though one time I went so high I could feel my heart becoming irregular and had to make a massive effort to stay in my body, not drop my body and physically die, and get my roots down deep into the ground.
Spiritually awakening bit by bit is fine with me.
When a soul with a lot of order energy comes down from the Divine Journeys in the Beyond, rather than take a route that eventually leads to human lives, or a route that leads to lives in the Devic kingdom, they become an angel.
Their journey is closely watched by the five Perfect Masters who live on Earth and look after creation for God. If the soul comes into creation with a lot of order energy they become an Archangel on the 6th plane of consciousness. If they have a little less order energy they become an angel on the 5th plane of consciousness.
The Archangels and angels are order energy, given a little touch of chaos energy, which helps them work together with Devas when required. Archangels and angels do God’s Will, quickly and thoroughly, without emotion, as they are mental light. Mental light is not like slushy or soft love, it is very effective at creating thorough healing and change.
The Perfect Masters, who work on the first three Divine Journeys and who have God’s authority down here in creation, direct the work of the Archangels and angels.
Angelic energy is very pure, and powerful order energy. The current human form in this 5th, Aryan Root Race is too fragile to cope with this energy, so full on exposure to angelic energy doesn’t happen. A touch, yes.
Archangels and angels cannot be commanded by humans. They only follow instructions from God, the Avatar when they are down here, and the Perfect Masters.
For information on the planes of consciousness take a look at https://wordpress.com/post/spiritualgrowthadventure.com/20 , and other articles about Perfect Masters and Devas.
On this planet their is an unassuming group of people who do a huge amount of spiritual work for the good of all on this planet and for creation generally.
They are physically spread around the planet and for all intents and purposes they come across as quite ordinary people. In fact, having a big ego and personal ambitions would get in the way of their work.
The Spiritual Hierarchy are 7000 advanced spiritual people with the right quality soul for service, 24/7. In spiritual terms, they have varying degrees of perfection as souls and the right kind of spirit. The most perfected are the five Perfect Masters. (These are mentioned in other parts of the blog.) Developing the right qualities for the role could take many lifetimes of service, meditation and spiritual living, though why not aim for it.
When there is an Avatar on the planet, they number 7001 members, and the Avatar is in charge, otherwise a Perfect Master is in charge.
Energetically, on the inner planes they gather in Shamballa to work as a collective unit. They also work individually on assigned duties and are stationed on and between the planes. (Planes of consciousness are also mentioned early in this blog. As a reminder, these are the 0th or zeroth plane of consciousness, though the spiritual hierarchy members aren’t stationed on this one, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th planes. The seventh is huge beyond comprehension with the Divine Journeys in it).
The spiritual hierarchy operate in the background and really help things move along spiritually, in all areas of life. They make it easier for people to develop spiritually, take on board meditation and healing practices and develop newer and newer ones, and also receive spiritual guidance on the inner planes.
Authoratative information on the spiritual hierarchy can be found in more depth in the Supplement of God Speaks by Meher Baba.
Today I read about the leaked Paradise Papers in the British Press which exposed details of people transferring money away from countries such as the USA and the UK and others, meaning that tax could be avoided if those people wanted to.
Yesterday I watched a documentary about the multi-billionaire Koch brothers in the USA who use their billions of dollars to support US government members they like and to influence the public, and influence the political process to make sure things happen as they want them to. One aim is to deny climate change and to either confuse people about it or attack climate change science as untrue. They are involved in oil so they want to keep selling oil, and making more money.
What are these people like, who would hide away money, keep what they should pay tax on for themselves, and accumulate yet more money? Or these people who would deny, misinform and attack climate science to support their own selfish ends? Trillions of dollars are under their control.
Some meditation practices polish up the third eye and enhance intuition, and with intuition it is possible to take a look at these characters. People who are greedy, who like to dominate and control, who will use power (aka money) for their own selfish needs have some energetic traits in their auras and chakras.
Their heart centres are varying shades of dark, like grey to very b-l-a-c-k (really bad!). If they are into manipulation and control bigtime then they will have a solar plexus that is large, full of energy, dynamic and possibly distorted in shape.
Their auras can be large sometimes indicating a lot of energy and power which shows up as flashes of light like lightning and silver flashes. The auras can look seductively flashy with glamour which is a great disguise, and their may be some charisma in there as well which helps them to get by. The aura, once stripped away of the glamour, will show unpleasant looking coloured energy.
The really nasty ones will have unpleasant feeling, ominous black bat’s wings when looked at intuitively.
Why is it the bad guys are the ones who enthusiatically chase after money and accumulate it? Is it because in our present age it stands for power? Which can be used to accumulate more power and wealth?
I found myself thinking, “WHAT IF THE GOOD PEOPLE HAD ALL THE MONEY? WHAT WOULD THE WORLD BE LIKE?”
Money is useful stuff that we can use to exchange for goods and services, and we can also give it to others. Money represents energy which can be use for good or ill. It is neutral. All energy comes from God. It us up to us how we use it.
Money can be used in large amounts to create healthcare systems, MRI scanners, education systems, housing, buildings and roads. It can be used to help people have lives that are purposeful, meaningful and fulfilling. And happy. Money can contribute to healthy communities. Large sums of money well spent can have a positive effect on the wellbeing of the planet and everything and everyone on it. It can help us reach for the stars.
Intuitively now, the energy is there for the good people of this planet to create ways to make money in respectful and life-enhancing ways, and create a new financial system based on new values that means the old system can be avoided and left to wither as an out-dated idea. Doing nothing though about creating something new means still letting those with dodgy looking heart centres put in lots of effort to put their grubby mits on our money.
Also, a lot of the new energy flowing into the planet is targetting those who would be greedy and abusive towards the environment and the people, to expose and stop them. The financial system and those learning towards the dark lodge within in it will be cleaned up over time, as humanity moves onto a new timeline.
On the zeroth plane of consciousness, the black light is swirling quite dramatically. Not quite hurricane standard, but close; still raging though. There has been an input of order energy to stir up and remove the old, and make changes. This will affect our planet and all of creation. Focusing just on this earth, the devas are busy winding down those aspects of our life that needs to go. Not too fast, just fast enough. The devas are slowly going to make new forms. The mineral world has had an upgrade, now it is time for everything else.
In the human world, the storm will get people’s emotions going. Emotions and moods will darken. There will be more doubt and uncertainty, more zeroth plane fear, more anger, righteousness, and rage. These volatile and powerful emotions will drive people to think, speak and act in dramatic ways, individually and collectively. People will become polarized, and some will be desperate. Desperation will drive human events, and ecological events. Strong emotions will be cloaked in hijacked religion, in ideology, politics, opinions and beliefs. Old karma will be brought up by the storm, and worked through. Some people will try to avoid the stirred zeroth plane energy in their systems by using drugs, alcohol and any other addictions.
Remember to take your umbrella and a coat, which means daily meditation to access the mental light higher up the planes to take you out of the storm. This will help you be on the best timeline for you (the Golden Pathway), and help you make helpful decisions, and be in the right place at the right time.
The zeroth plane storm will also bring out the best in many people young and old, all over the world, who bring out their compassion, endurance, and love in small and big ways to help their kindred humans; like flowers blooming in the desert.
On the zeroth plane, the devas will do their usual job with the weather (check out the deva of the next hurricane), as they use water, air (wind), and fire to clean up old and negative energy on and in the land from ages past up until now. There is a big clean-up operation going on that is going to be spread out over many years, to make this earth sparkly.
The storm will also power through the financial systems and the lives of those people within it. A lot of money has old karma tied up with it based on slavery, exploitation, wars, buying of weapons and ammunition, crime, greed and murder which all needs to be balanced. (Time for a massive rethink about how we exchange energy for goods and services, as well).
The storm is stirring and will change the political world, and all points of “power” that try to influence the world outside political processes. Time for the old to go. Time for more wisdom, compassion and courage, and a lot less greed and corruption. Thinking of becoming a politician?
There is a lot going on in the world and you can use meditation to figure out the best places to live. (The triangles meditation in the blog is a good one). Difficulties and problems get people to think about what no longer works, and come up with new ways of doing things.
On the first plane of consciousness, the energetic weather is harsh, scrubbing away at old ways of thinking and feeling. It is uncomfortable on this plane. It’s not totally destructive. The cleaning process goes on quick enough to clear the old, but not so quick as to destroy totally. It’s uncomfortable enough for questions to be asked. Above the clouds here is some sunlight. What will come out of this is new ways of thinking and feeling, and a changed language to talk about it.
The second plane. The materialistic second plane. High winds are ripping around the second plane which is a bit bloated with glamour, poor use of wealth, shallow human thought, greed, selfishness, and a lack of thought about others. The lower three centres (base, sexual and solar plexus), along with the lower heart centre are being activated and cleared. Dissatisfaction can point the way to a balanced perspective on material wealth, self, and others.
Some light from higher up the planes, and initiated from high up, is landing in the upper parts of the second plane, like shining, bright snowflakes. These carry information and motivation with regards to space technology, with spin-offs that can improve life for us on earth. The same goes for medicine, and more subtly comes in.
The weather on the third plane is mostly sunny, with quick thunderstorms every so often to make third plane people jump, and get them to look UP, let in more light and change.
The fourth plane is white light. Pure, powerful, bright and virulent. A place to be on your toes at all times. This plane has already been sorted. Not a place for the faint hearted.
The fifth plane. Not so much weather in this extremely bright place of hot mental light. There is a bit of a breeze in the hot sunlight. The place is getting a scrub from devas. There are bright snowflakes and shooting stars coming down from the first Divine Journey. These are carrying an immense amount of mental and emotional energy, along with very new information and New Law. Also coming down is new Divine guides. All this will make its way down into the lower planes. As it does, what needs to go will go, and what needs to stay will stay. What needs to be started will be started.
The sixth plane weather is a bright light whiteout. Sunglasses and a spiritual guide are needed. Sparkles of gold as the first Divine Journey comes down. That will change everything. Coming through the sixth plane are souls with specialist experience and skills to bring about a makeover of this planet earth. There are some souls with a great deal of spirituality and light.
So overall, stormy and windy for the next 54 years or so, with clear, sunny weather on the horizon, once enough clearing and change has gone on.
A short while ago I wrote a piece on intuitively sensing the energies of countries and looking at their energy as triangles.
Some countries value the personal liberty of their citizens and freedom of expression, and they will have laws that protect their citizens. There are some countries that now recognise the importance and value of the environment around them, and have laws to protect the environment so it can survive at least, or flourish. There is a spiritual understanding in this, even if it isn’t explicit, but the love and respect is there, nevertheless.
How a country, by this I mean its government and its establishment and institutions, regards its citizens has a big impact on its people. If you look at the energetic triangle of a country, it shows up energetically.
In some countries, freedom is important. There may be some people within the country who think they know better than the general population and take it upon themselves to “save” this population from itself and engage in covert surveillance and control of the population, as if they are in a war to protect their society, or their version of it, so their concept of freedom is twisted somewhat.
There are governments that control some areas of life in some countries. There are some governments or dictators that control all aspects of life so there is no freedom. So there are countries where the government controls totally what goes on in cyberspace on the Internet, and watches who says what.
Some governments of countries are respectful of its citizens and works on their behalf. Some governments are dictatorial and controlling.
I got to thinking about companies and the intuitive energetic triangles that represent them. A company can provide good or poor products or services. This can be a big nuisance. But for example, if a biscuit manufacturer makes a product you don’t like, there are other biscuits and other manufacturers. The impact of this company on your life is not that great. They don’t have much power to affect your life, and you have choice.
A company like Monsanto still has an intuitive triangle that looks distinctly unpleasant energetically given the products that impact on the environment. A company that has a massive negative influence on many areas of a country and its government such as Nigeria, the company being Royal Dutch Shell, has an unpleasant looking energy triangle. It’s all about power and money. Nigeria is stuck with Shell for the moment.
The Internet is an area where the large companies involved have a massive influence on our lives. I remember when Google and Facebook were good ideas. Taking a look at the energetic triangles of these companies when they started out, they are full of energy and light. Now Google’s triangle has a black outline and the energy is slowing down, as if it is less about supporting its users creativity and more about controlling what they can see and how they work, and their is a lot of surveillance of its users.
The triangle for Facebook still has some light in it, but is starting to look sickly and stagnant as it is over-controlled and now set up with its main aim to make money for Facebook. Then again there is the surveillance and data gathering.
If the Internet companies were based in China, OK, because large companies, especially ones with an international aspect to them, are to all practical intents and purposes, extensions of the Chinese government. They would not be allowed to operate or survive without their say so.
In the rest of the world, Google and Facebook are becoming more about control, and less about freedom and respect. If they were countries, they would be oppressive and controlling.
On this blog there is a piece called Triangles if you would like to have a look and try the idea out for yourself on some companies. I like spiritual ideas that have a practical use and effect in our everyday world, and intuitive triangles is one of them.
(A version of this is found in the book “Meditation: Opening doorways on a new reality”.)
Closing doorways on your chakras or centres is essential to look after and protect your energy, and turn down the volume on sensitivity. It is good to do daily, and after meditation.
Energy follows thought. This is an old and true spiritual rule. What you think, what you imagine and put energy into is what you are likely to get, given that it matches Natural Law and your karma. So if you think, and keep on thinking you can close the doorways on your chakras, then you can. If you think and keep on thinking that you can button up your aura, then you can.
It helps to know your centres or chakras. Take a look at the illustration for guidance. You will see plenty of diagrams showing seven chakras, sometimes you can find diagrams showing twelve chakras. In most diagrams and pictures, chakras or centres are shown like round discs, or spheres. It is fine to think of them like this. You can also, more accurately, regard them as being like slightly rounded oblongs or slightly rounded rectangles.
It is fine to work with the seven chakras or centres, though there are in fact, a hundred centres in a line through and also above the body. Many of these are quite small in most people. Astral energy stealers don’t know anything about the centres that are new, or above the physical head, so we don’t have to focus on these. After getting used to the closing doorways technique, you can work on the new ones as well.
Familiarize yourself with the centres in the body. From the lowest main centre the base centre, there is the sexual centre, then the solar plexus. Above that is the area of the heart centre, which can be considered as one area, though there are three centres in that space. Then there is the throat centre. One of the centres above the throat centre is the third eye, situated between and above the eyebrows. These centres can be charged up with meditation, and the energy within them can provide a meal. The lovely energy you end up creating in your aura can also be munched on.
What follows is a closing doorways meditation. Do it as soon as you finish your meditation session. With practice you can become quick at this.
Close your eyes and place your awareness on your base centre, situated in your perinaum, between your legs. Imagine a door is on the chakra. If it is open, imagine closing it, and locking it with a gold key.
Now place your focus just below your navel and in the middle of your body. Again imagine your sexual centre or chakra. Imagine a door on the front of it. If the door appears to be open, then close it, and lock it with the gold key.
Place your awareness on your solar plexus (in the centre of your body near your stomach). Imagine your solar plexus centre as a ball of energy, and notice the door on it. In your imagination notice if the door is open or closed. If it appears open, then close it. Lock it with a golden key.
Move your awareness up to the heart centre. Again look at the heart centre, and the door on it. Close the door if you need to, and lock it with a golden key.
Place your awareness on your throat centre now. Look for the door. If it is open, then close it, and lock it with a golden key.
Now imagine your third eye. Look for the door on it and check if it is closed. If it is open, then close it, and lock it with a golden key.
Now to cover and protect your aura. Imagine a thick, dark blue hooded cloak with a coloured silky lining, being placed around you. The cloak and hood is calming and soothing. It covers your aura. On the front of the cloak are some buttons. As you do up the buttons you seal your aura.
When you are ready, open your eyes.
I updated some information on linkedIn, giving details of the book I’ve written on meditation, and mentioned about developing intuition and using it in everyday life.
LinkedIn is used by a lot of business people. I thought to myself, well obviously a business person would want to know what the future timeline for their business looked like, and know what they could do to improve it. So a business person wanting to develop their intuition would make sense.
I have met business people who follow their gut feelings and some with quite developed intuitions. Then I remembered something that happened years ago.
In my twenties ( a long time ago) I had written (pre-email) to Richard Branson asking to do do some work in one of his businesses so that I could gain experience. I had a good intuition, and a few days later I could feel him scanning me intuitively, his energy was unmistakeable as it was/is so powerful.
I got a letter back agreeing to me working in what now be called an internship, and my details had been sent on to a manager in Virgin London-based business. Unfortunately things fizzled out a bit as they didn’t know where to place me.
Still, I can see one reason why Richard Branson is so successful. He has a phenomenal intuition and can easily read people, which makes him an excellent judge of character, and means he surrounds himself with the best people. Awesome.
He can probably get a sense of the best business deals as well, and great ways of doing business.
Many moons ago I visited an Indian saint’s ashram in Southern India. It was always hot. Milk for tea came fresh from a cow, drinking and washing water from a well. It was spicy food throughout the day. There were lush green field with waterways and coconut trees. I wore an orange wrap on top, and an orange sheet wrapped around my botton half. It was the thing to do there. We had chanting, meditation, talks and ceremonies. I could feel the atmosphere was charged with spiritual energy, and the Swami would charge up with energy as well, and use it for our benefit, which he did a good job of. There was a lot of healing and change going on.
On reflection, I was never interested in the minor miracles that happened, or impressed by them. I just felt that is what happens with energy and some people can do that kind of thing. My perspective was that Perfect Masters can do much more far-reaching things in the world. As for the Avatar, well they can do whatever they need to on a creation wide scale.
For a few day’s the Swami kept asking me if I wanted anything, when we were out in the town, visiting a temple, eating a meal, and whenever any other opportunity arrived.
I thought to myself this was great, I could have whatever I want. So I thought about a new girlfriend, a new house, new car, and that kind of stuff.
Then I asked myself, well if I had all of that, what else would I want. Then the penny dropped as we say in the UK. I knew what I wanted. Tell you later.
What would you want?
What happened next was that I saw the Swami with a group of his devotees and went up to him. I said, “I know what I want. I want only that that God wants me to want.”
After that he sent someone for some oil, someone for water and someone for ash. He made a paste, then applied it to my forehead as he said a prayer in front of the devotees. It felt great.
Each country has a spirit like a spirit of the landmass. Added to this is the spirit of the people living there. Where I live, in Britain, over thousands of years there have been different groups of people here. There were people here from the Iron Age. There have been Picts, Celts, the Britons, the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings, the Normans (who came from France but who were from the Vikings). People leave an energy on the land with what they thought, what they felt, and what they did, and what happened when they were there. This energy soaks in the land. Places of habitation will have their own atmosphere.
Battlefields have a particular feeling of fear, anger and survival, and often people who have died in battle are still earthbound there. Places where evil happened will have that feeling. Conversely, if a land has a people living there who abide by spiritual ideals the energy of their living will soak into the land.
In Britain, the number of people around was quite small until the past few hundreds of years. Britain tends to be quite stable in how things are done in this country and people with power generally are not prone to being dramatic or crazy, or wantonly evil. Fair play tends to be a British characteristic when it comes to how the British treat the British, though historically they have also shown ruthlessness and that is one reason why they created an Empire. Democracy and the rule of law, combined with a fair amount of respect for Royalty, and a Royalty that has tended to treat the populace with some respect rather than despotically, has lent itself to a way of life where people have rights and are positively regarded. The resulting energy input onto the land from the British way of life is OK-ish, though could always be better.
Also in Britain, there are some areas where the energy of the land is quite powerful and quite high, such as the Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, and the nearby Stonehenge. Some of the stones for Stonehenge came from West Wales, and the area they came from is again quite high energy.
A place like India has a tremendous amount of spiritual energy soaked into the land. It was the place where Perfect Masters were usually born and lived for a very long time. It is the place where the Avatar usually incarnates again and again every 400 to 700 years. The population as a whole revered the spiritual people who lived amongst them. It was a spiritual country rather than a materialist one. The spirit of India was quite high.
Though now it has become much more materialistic, and the way too many men think about women and girls, and the way women and girls have been violently and sexually treated has darkened the spirit of the country. The energy from humanity soaking into the land is less bright, and sometimes dark.
The energy soaked into a land can go back ages, literally. Lands can have been places where there is a lot of old Lemurian energy. This isn’t always positive. For instance, paedophilia came about in Lemurian times. This and other Lemurian energies need to be cleaned up from landmasses.
Atlantean energy can leave a dark stain on the land, particularly when souls with strong Atlantean energy reincarnate again onto the land. The Atlantean root race had to be got rid of by a great flood because they misused their power and decided to invite in evil. That was the end of them, though their energy still needs to be cleaned up. (The Aryan root race came next, us, though this root race timeline is fragmenting – anyone noticed the world going slightly nuts? – and a new root race with more chakras and abilities is coming about.)
Countries holding remnants of old energy that are holding them back will have this mixed in with the spirit of the landmass, and importantly the spirit of the people. Some people carry more energetic clout than others.
If you look at old pictures of the Nazi political leaders, and the military leaders and use your intuition to look, you get to see the dark energy around them, their black heart centres, the negative power in their centres, and the occassional black bat’s wings effect of extreme evil. There might be a glow of glamour around these people to try and disguise them (you wouldn’t expect the dark lodge to be blatant and upfront about it as it would give the game away).
Now take a look at pictures of the leaders in North Korea. Rather a lot of dark lodge folk have incarnated there.
If you have ever dealt with someone who is devious, a total liar, a psycopath, or basically someone who is a signed up member or associate of the dark lodge, you learn pretty quick (hopefully) that there is no levelling with them, no honest dialogue and you can’t expect them to be respectful or fair. That just isn’t in their chemistry.
A powerful group of dark lodge people can energetically swamp out a large number of ordinary people with less well developed centres and auras. A powerful dark lodge group will affect the overall energy of a country.
Events will also affect the energy of a country by darkening it, or making it brighter.
Countries (and cities and towns and organisations) have a chakra system just like a human and other living creatures do. You can intuitively look at these chakras to take a look at the health or the state of the country.
You can look at the overall energy of a country as a triangle. Point pointing up is good. Point pointing down is bad. A nice healthy, glowing and stable triangle is good, pointing up. Britain is vibrating a bit and letting off steam but has a mostly gold colour so things aren’t actually that bad, or maybe I’m biased.
Germany before the weekend looked like there was a bit of gold, but also some red (not good), and looked like it was inflated and ready to burst. The chakra centres look like they are tearing up a bit which doesn’t look good. Looks like a social struggle, a gap between the politicians and the people. This will knock the shine off the economy, and what is bad for Germany is bad for Europe and vice versa. Or alternative way of looking at it is that change is afoot and a new balance will be achieved.
Taking a look at another country: Hungary’s triangle is golden and fat, as the country is being supported by Europe, but the chakra system is black.
I’m not going to go on through each country though fair to say things aren’t as stable as they could be. Things are likely to get worse before they get better.
North Korea’s triangle is ominously and angrily black. It is pointing down. When people, places or things develop a lot of unpleasant, negative, chaotic black zeroth plane energy (in contrast to lovely and nourishing black devic energy or earth energy), it has to be dissipated, often very quickly. This can happen by a release of energy through an accident, the destruction of a place, or in the case of a country, a war. After saturation point arrives the Law of Opposites which kicks in as some event happens and the triangle goes opposite and turns lighter (like what happened with Germany after the Second World War).
People in the world have mostly come to the idea that war is a horror and it leaves scars on the people involved, and can be damaging to all. This might hold things back, then again war might happen.
In meditation you can try for yourself using your intuition to check out the triangles and chakras for countries.
I couldn’t put it down. A great story about a Mongolian who, haunted by his grandfather, seeks help from lamas in a Tibetan monastery. He is given a secret and crucial task to fulfil in return. The Chinese and some Tibetans try to stop him. The Mongolian later writes an account of what happened.
The story continues in the present time as a London based researcher into Tibetan matters finds himself in possession of this account. His life is is changed as he comes across details about The Morning Tree, an ancient Tibetan book containing powerful spiritual truths that some would like to see reach the light of day, while others would stop at nothing to supress or destroy the book.
A great story, and the spiritual concepts are spot on. Highly recommended.
If you would like to read it, it is available on Kindle.
Probably worth reading the original post about white light as well as listening to the meditation. I will embed the meditation in the original post as well as making it available here.
Have microphone, will record.
Here is a recording of the gold light meditation. I will also embed it in the original blog article.
I have included it in the book “Meditation: Doorways to a New Reality”, plug, plug. Available on Amazon, and will put it on a CD.
Enjoy the recording. Also good to check out the Getting Grounded meditation recording afterwards.
White Light and Blue Light Meditations to follow.
Getting grounded is such a basic essential for having a good meditation and for getting the most out of life generally.
The more someone is in their body and grounded, the better they can meditation and handle the light.
This meditation goes with the book “Meditation: Opening Doorways on a New Reality”. Enjoy.
Finally managed to figure out how to do some recording. I’ve recorded “A Basic Meditation Technique”, and placed it in the sidebar. I hope you like it. As I get to know the Audacity software the quality and presentation should improve.
I’m aiming to add more recordings of meditations onto this blog, and for now I’m taking them from the book “Meditation: Opening Doorways to a New Realty”. This way, people who buy the book can also listen to the meditations while I sort out a CD.
The book has great energy and is available from Amazon, and yes it is literally an energetic doorway should you choose to step inside.
At last. I’ve taken some of the meditations in the blog and tweaked them and added some new ones. I’ve re-edited some of the articles to provide background information.
So anyone wanting to either learn to meditate in some new ways can follow the techniques in the book and go as far as they want.
Thing is with meditation, people who are drawn to it are most likely to have done some in one or more past-lives, so learning to meditate is about picking up from where they left off and working with energies more in keeping with the present times.
Now the book is written and out there I can work on recordings of the meditations.
The book can be bought from Amazon globally from their Createspace business. Here’s the link:
As I started to think about Peace and started to explore the idea of Peace from different angles I saw a simple approach to it, and also realised how complex the issue could be if you wanted to look beneath the surface of the simple approach. Then beneath the complexity I was aware of a deeper spiritual nature of Peace.
How much peace we have in our life is based on a state of heart and then mind in how we relate to the world. (It’s always best if mind follows heart). Looking at the newsthere seems to be a lot of turbulence and apparent craziness in the lives of people around the world. I can understand this from a spiritual perspective. There are old, old law timelines fragmenting and ending as a huge amount of spiritual light has been pouring into the planet. This spiritual energy has really sped things up.
A lot of old energy is being cleaned up, a lot of old karma, personal karma, group karma, regional karma, national karma and planetary karma is being brought up to the surface and balanced and resolved. It’s like clearing up the old karma to allow a new, clearer karma for life to be better. The news and people’s lives pretty much reflects what the process of balancing karma looks like. It is chaotic and painful often, and life changing. Balancing negative national karma between countries can end up as war, or economic war, cyber warfare or on a positive level it can be negotiation. However things happen, karma will be balanced.
As karma is got rid of, then the timelines of what has been established in the past fragment and disappear or improve. So the timeline of a bank or an oil company or other organisation ends and the organisation disappears into history. In fact history shows us that nothing lasts for ever and that cities, cultures, religions and ways of living and doing things have come and gone. Historical change doesn’t affect us emotionally. Change going on right now can feel up close and personal.
Change is a fact of life, driven by spiritual energies to keep on developing by clearing away the old energy and bringing in the new, cycle after cycle.
This destruction of old things and old ways can be thought of as the effect of Shiva energy, or the destroyer aspect of God clearing out the old, to make way for the new.
The spiritual energy coming in at the moment is also birthing the new. This is the creator energy of God. In time, what is created now will also need to be cleared and replaced by something better.
Right now, there are new concepts, new organisations, new technologies, new changes in the centres or chakras and the auras of people happening, and new timelines being birthed. There is new karma coming in with new opportunities and new ways of being and of doing things coming in.
In the midst of these changes there is a preserver aspect to God’s energy and so what needs to be here as far as God is concerned is preserved and maintained by this energy.
Trying to stay on and old timeline and hang on to an old way of thinking, of living or of doing things will work less and less as the incoming spiritual energy shreds the old timelines. Trying to hold on to old ways is a sure way to be unhappy.
At this moment in time, and for the foreseeable future, there is going to be turmoil while old karma is cleared up sufficiently to create a clear present and future without the drag of the past. The way to be happy is to let go of old timelines and get on the new one, and as the phrase goes, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. Why? Because when the Avatar was down here last all the decisions for the next three thousand years were made, and the timelines for the next one thousand two hundred years were set in place. It all comes down to trusting God, trusting that God has the best and most loving future in mind for all souls, who are all part of God in any case, and listening in to God through meditation or intuition about what needs to be done.
So though life might seem chaotic, turbulent, and unpredictable, and though we might hear, or see things in life and on the television or Internet that seem crazy, trusting, not worrying, and listening in or intuiting what needs to be done in life is one key to peace. God is in each and every one of us and we have a direct line to God, and high quality guides are available now to help out, though they usually help us to be self-reliant rather than weaken us through dependency. So we can feel the love of God, and the peace of God within us, and trust our feelings to know when we are on track or not.
No one ever got peace by running away from life. By that I mean the peace you get by being able to live with yourself. The turbulent, crazy, chaotic nature of life is throwing up in our faces situations and problems for others as well as ourselves where we might feel a sense of injustice or know something isn’t right. It might be something that is happening to us, or something happening to people halfway around the planet, or something happening to other living creatures or the environment.
We can choose to pay attention to the sense of wrongness or injustice that we feel and try to do something to set the situation right. We know that ignoring the wrongness won’t help us have a sense of inner peace, in fact it will stop us feeling that peace, and so we have to do what feels right to us deep down in our hearts.
Every situation is different, though for every situation we can meditate on our heart, feel the love, firstly offer up the situation (literally visualize it if it can be seen or as a coloured ball of energy being offered up in our hands or on a tray to God), ask for help to understand the situation and to be shown the truth of it, and then ask for guidance as to what step or steps need to be done to play our part in setting things right. We can also ask for assistance in dealing with the situation. a situation might trigger powerful emotions. If working through emotions and forgiveness needs to happen we can ask to be shown how to do this, though action may still need to be taken to resolve a situation. (Energetically, resolution usually happens in more effective ways if forgiveness is a part of the process rather than if anger is the dominant emotion). Resolution and peace is a good outcome.
Resolving a situation may take a simple email or conversation, or it could take years or decades to set things right. If it is a long process, keep meditating, keep offering each step up in a loving way.
Spirituality is practical and there is often a physical result, a change for the better. Spirituality is about bringing more love, peace, harmony and beauty into the world and Universe in whatever way we can do that. Spirituality is very much about doing what is right in our hearts (rather than doing nothing).
On a personal level, saying to someone that in order to have peace all you have to do is close your eyes, take a few breathes, and put your attention on the middle of your chest where your heart centre is for twenty minutes and meditate, can work fine.
But what if someone had a traumatic childhood, or were abused or neglected or exploited someway, or had something awful happen to them at some point, or saw something that marked them, or they have something like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or depression?
Meditation would help for sure, but a clairvoyant look at their aura, and their centres or chakras would show the damage and indicate the healing and therapy they would require which would take time. Peace might be a long time coming. The peace would always be there in their heart centres, and head centres, it’s just the emotions and scars can intrude or stop people being aware of peace. The emotions and scars need to be healed.
As an aside, we will all have had many lives (if you accept reincarnation of the soul into physical form as true). The soul likes experience and isn’t that fussed if it is enjoyable or painful to the personality as it goes through karma. It is all experience and data for the soul to understand what life involves so it can increase its consciousness. Here’s an analogy. When we dream, what happens in the dream can seem good or bad. When we wake up, we are fine. People say we are living in an Illusion from a spiritual point of view. The soul comes from Reality, and comes into the Illusion called Creation. The soul projects some of itself and its energy into its incarnation in the Illusion, lifetime after lifetime, each time building more consciousness. When a physical form the soul inhabits dies as the soul removes its energy, the soul is still in existence. The soul doesn’t die. Then it reincarnates again. The soul keeps reincarnating until it literally wakes up and realises its Real nature, which is part of God, and the Illusion is no longer important. A soul has to go through this process in Illusion to realise this though. The waking up part happens with the help of a Perfect Master. For some people it happens to the soul while it is in a physical body, and the soul has been usually on the sixth plane of consciousness. (See earlier blogs about the Planes of Consciousness.) So they have Enlightenment about what they really are, and what life really is; Life is Illusion and they experience themselves as Real, if it is happening to them consciously, that is. People lower down the planes might get revelations and shifts in their awareness, but it’s not Enlightenment.
The point is the soul never dies and always exists.
So we will all have had lifetimes where there has been pain and hurt, physically, emotionally and mentally. Though in this lifetime we might feel fine. We also will have had pleasureable lives. It balances out.
So anyway, we are in Illusion until such a lifetime as we have Realisation. Up until that point, how to have peace?
If we are thinking angry and negative thoughts, and feeling angry and negative then we won’t have peace. Part of spirituality is thinking positive and loving thoughts (or having a totally silent mind which takes some doing), and feeling loving and feeling positive. About everything or at least about as much as we can about life.
When we see or hear something and think about it unconsciously, and consciously, we do it through our minds. Minds tend to be limited and process information in ways that depend on how the mind has developed. Minds don’t know everything, and don’t actually understand that much. If you have an opinion on a topic, you can try meditating (or praying) and offering the matter up to God, or your Higher Self, and you might find the understanding you get back is different to your own understanding of the matter.
Peace is already in our hearts. We feel that peace when we offer it to others and to the world, and act in peaceful ways as much as we can. I’m not saying it is easy, though it is something worth cultivating. The same goes for feeling loving towards everyone and the world, and for thinking peaceful and loving thoughts about people and the world.
Wiht love and peace in our hearts, and paying attention to what seems to be the most loving thing to do in any situation, we can attempt to live life in the best way.
Spirituality is a lot about loving thoughts, loving feelings, compassion and right action at the right time.
Before getting into spirituality I had a party-going hedonistic lifestyle. I didn’t care that much about my own wellbeing or the wellbeing of others, and considered myself as having a smattering of metropolitan culture. Discovering spirituality, my thinking and feeling changed a lot.
The nightlife lifestyle had covered up anger and sadness as I thought I was having fun, and didn’t give attention to the feelings that were bubbling under the surface. Through a crisis and therapies I went through a process of learning to love and appreciate myself as I worked through the emotions. I started to love and appreciate others as well. I practiced forgiveness. I was healing. My heart centre opened up a bit.
I didn’t know much about spirituality, I didn’t need to as I was doing the essentials anyway. I was becoming happier and happier, more and more excited about life and healthier too.
I started to learn about different approaches to spirituality. Though I have since concluded that life, the universe and everything goes on the way it does no matter what people believe about spirituality. I came across some spiritual approaches that were incomplete, some were half-baked, and some were completely whacko. (Being able to use your third-eye and other centres to tune in and assess belief systems and concepts is really useful, and also good for spotting fake news.)
I have realized that to understand and know fully how things happen in creation requires a great deal of knowledge which needs to be deeply understood. Also it helps to have many, many lifetimes of experience for the soul to learn what life is about and what God is all about.
Even with incomplete knowledge it is still possible to use some basics, such as using thoughts to (partially) create your reality, and use the knowledge that energy follows thought, so using visualization and affirmations can be useful in life.
Nowadays, with regards to understanding spirituality I tend to think of it like layers of an onion. There are depths and layers to spiritual knowledge, so what you believe one year can change throughout the years as depth of understanding grows, and life is lived to build experience, and building experience deepens understanding.
Now the basics again: thinking loving thoughts, and feeling loving feelings. And forgiveness. Is that possible to do about everyone? Is it possible to do about everything?
You might have a list of people and events or groups that you feel are beyond loving and who should be damned forever and sent into a black hole.
I was given a lesson in this in the nineties when I drove a Tibetan lama from Oxford to London. I didn’t know much history and asked him how he came to the West. He explained that he and the other monks fled their monastery. He told me that the Chinese army attacked and shot at the monks as they crossed a river. Out of 300 monks, 6 made it across into India. What amazed me was that he didn’t hold a grudge or any animosity and was at peace with what had happened.
This was and still is a big lesson for me: to be able to forgive everyone.
Through spiritual knowledge I have a sense of why to forgive. I know that people have many lifetimes. When we have lives, what we have as a life is determined by our karma so we have experiences to balance out our karma for our soul to learn through experience. First we have one experience and then another in a future lifetime to balance out the experience in the earlier life. The law of opposites can be operating, so we can have a light filled life of doing caring actions, and this is balanced by a darker life where are action are negative. Then a future lifetime can be light filled again.
In dark lives, we get tested. The Dark Lodge are interested in us when we have lives where we lean to the dark. The Dark Lodge are essentially testers. They offer us a life where we can have glamour, power over others, easy wealth and prestige, and other people have to pay the price. Sometimes the lifestyle comes through exploiting creatures or the earth.
In one life we might feel that we don’t want to act, think or live in a negative way anymore. We have had enough, we are saturated in negative experiences (this is the law of saturation). Or we might decide that’s it, no more of the dark life, and it is yes to more light, love and peace. A caveat to this is that sometimes dark and tyranny needs to be fought against as the most loving option. It depends on what you are fighting for. (There is an energy, a Great Ray called Harmony through Conflict that is worth researching, and in Meher Baba’s Discourses there is information on conflict and right action.) What is right depends on your take on spirituality.
Something else that influences me is the fact that people are souls that have dark and light incarnations, and that we all belong to the same Oversoul, so at a soul level we are connected. For me, this might mean we can forgive people who we have a big emotional charge about. We can start to think loving thoughts about them, and feel love and peace towards them.
Having been through this myself and having helped others go through their own personal journey of forgiveness with its downs and ups, I feel it is important to work through the emotions around whatever needs to be forgiven before reaching peace through forgiveness. Otherwise the emotional energy will try another route to express itself and this can have a negative effect on oneself and one’s life.
After the forgiveness can come the feeling and sending of positive love and thoughts.
This is definitely a useful exercise in our topsy-turvy, emotionally charged world. You might like to make a list of people in the world, close by or geographically distant who really trigger your emotions. You might like to try forgiving these people as we are all connected on a soul level. (As a matter of interest, hate and anger towards someone is also a powerful way of creating a cording to them, and energy can flow both ways through the cording. Forgiveness can dissolve the cording, while love can create a positive cording.)
