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.

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, but with the potential for infinite consciousness. Souls are not usually 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 spiritual 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 spiritual 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 spiritual 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 through reincarnation, 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. Eventually, eventually, the soul reincarnates and increases its experience of Life and its consciousness, as it goes 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. This is when the soul goes 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). A person with sixth plane souls (and fifth plane souls) are very unlikely to say they are enlightened, have special powers or authority etc. 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 level of 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! 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 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 people called Perfect Masters. Having more lives, 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 he 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 close followers to be involved in 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. 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. There are videos of Meher Baba and of people with first hand experience of him online, along with old, reliable websites should you want to get an idea how a Master can work.
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, and being on the Divine Journeys, have the authority to direct the Archangels and angels. Also, importantly, being infinite, they can handle the full mental energy of the Archangels and angels without dropping their physical bodies.
There is a gigantic gap in consciousness between the Divine Journeys and the planes of consciousness in creation. So there is a massive gap in energy and quality of knowledge. What we call masters on the sixth, fifth, fourth planes and so on, only have access to the energy, light (mental or astral) and knowledge on their plane or lower planes.
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. Spirituality 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. This means the Perfect Master can flow energy through the person 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 these agents 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 or guide 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 spiritual teacher or a master 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.)
Then some masters are on higher planes of consciousness than others, so they can bring through a higher vibration of energy, and bring through a higher quality of knowledge, truth and wisdom and bliss. Then there are masters who are beyond the planes of consciousness on the Divine Journeys such as the Perfect Masters, who bring through Divine Light and Love, and Infinite Intelligence.
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. So they choose the right person to learn from. 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 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.
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 taught meditation, worked as a healer and ran “Developing Intuition” workshops.
I found that meditations were a very effective way to help people access their spiritual nature, develop their capabilities, and explore the universe of spiritual energies.
It just seemed a natural thing to do to write meditations and then share them in a book, and record some of them, which can be found on the blog.
There are meditations that seem really exciting, though the basics of grounding, of clearing the chakras and aura, of protecting the chakras and aura, are really fundamental to going further with meditations and any energy work.
After that there are topics such as working with your higher self, working with angelic energy and devic energy, finding which places in the world hold energy for you, meditations that are focused on the heart (great because this is such a doorway to the soul), working directly with the new energies coming in, improving self-esteem, doing deep cleaning of the body, loving and appreciating your body, having sparkling energy, working with the third eye to improve clairvoyance and intuition. There are other topics such as working with unconditional love to handle change, working with gold light, and meditating to build silence.
There is also a section on spiritual information that includes information on the chakras and aura, on reincarnation, karma and purpose, the planes of consciousness, intuition, and on spiritual sites and other topics.
The energy of the book as a package is quite high energy, and it would be of use to anyone who would like to explore what their spirituality can be about. (You could meditate with the book simply by holding it in your hands or placing it next to your heart centre.)

So what happens is lots of light comes in and everything changes, ouch.
Really I mean starts to change.
The New Age is coming in but not as people expected. A lot of people who wanted a New Age thought that it would be soft and cuddly, with lots of lovely feelings and gentle thoughts with wishful thinking.
What happens is that life goes topsy turvy with lots of upset, anger and war, and plenty of insecurity when people above all want to feel comfortable, secure and safe in a reliable world where they don’t have to change. People don’t like uncertainty and right now they don’t have a map to find their way around in this changing world (good news is a map is available, if you know where to find it).
We are still chomping through karma from the Lemurian, the Atlantean and the Aryan root races of humanity, and even more ancient karma at that. By karma I mean individual, group, national, and planetary karma, plus the karma from beyond the planet that affects us such as solar system karma, galactic and universal karma (hello ETs). This is all on the physical, astral (watch your feelings), and mental (notice your thoughts) levels.
As light and love flow in and pushes us through our individual and collective karma, as the light and love fragments and disintegrates all the old timelines that some people still try to cling to, and as New Law comes in and is challenged by the Old Law, life as we know it can seem very challenging. For a lot of people in the world right now, it is very difficult.
Years ago I recall reading about the seven Rays. The first one is Power, and the fourth one is Harmony through Conflict. So development in Life and Spirituality can occur in what seems to people as quite testing ways.
Also coming through and already there is the new, loving, life-filled, harmonious timelines and energy for us to get on, live and experience. There are new inventions, technologies and new concepts coming through, superseding the old. Spiritually, letting in the best of the new does mean being willing to let go of the old completely, and letting in the new completely. It does mean learning to think and feel in brand new ways.
The map. This is a special map that keeps on being updated as wave after wave of new energy flows in, as more and more refined spirit flows in, and as your capacity to receive and read the map increases.
This new love and light, and new spirit, is flowing down through the Divine Journeys and into the planes of consciousness, on which we are on. The new love and light and spirit filters down the planes where they touch us. We can access them in a more conscious way by meditating. As we tune into the new love, light and spirit we can absorb it by osmosis. It might be that we are picking up information and energy that helps us change consciously, but even if we are not aware, it will change us and influence us on a subconscious level. It will still help us to get on the best timeline for us. Plus the high level guides that are associated with this new energy can help us to, in the way they deem is the best.
So, eyes closed, roots down into the earth that has already changed, bring up new energy from the earth through your roots, and open up to the new love, light and spirit from the above. (Remember to get grounded afterwards.)
We will get through the old, out-dated karma at some point, and then with new spirit and new karma in us, then things will be better, but it will take a while.
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. 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 in 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 of 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 with 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, and experiences a huge variety of conditions, and events that happen to them. They experience instincts and intelligence. They experience emotions (a scientist 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.
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, 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 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 an 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, transforms into its full beauty, and with quite a story to tell back on the Divine Journeys.

In creation there are 7 planes of consciousness, the zeroth (0th) plane, the first plane, the second plane, the third plane, the fourth plane, the fifth plane and the sixth plane.
Souls start their human existence on the sixth subdivision of the zeroth plane (0.6). After each lifetime the soul moves up a tiny increment, which is associated with a tiny increase in the level of consciousness. After many lifetimes, the soul moves up to the first plane, with an increase in consciousness. While the light on the zeroth plane is quite slow and dark, the light on the first plane is a bit brighter. Going up each plane over lifetimes, a soul in human form will experience brighter and brighter light on the inner planes. In the sixth plane, the white light is dazzling. On average it takes 8.4 million lifetimes to get to the top of the sixth plane.
In meditation the light of the plane they are on is what they experience when they meditate on their own.
Someone on the 5th or 6th plane, or who has access to the Divine Journeys which are beyond creation’s planes of consciousness, can bring down light from the higher levels to influence the meditations of people on the lower planes. This person can have an inner plane connection, or better still, be physically present.
