Ascension through Sacred Geometry

Presented courtesy Spirit of Maat

Thomas Morton was recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the understanding and application of Sacred Geometry. Here, he talks of how, through utilizing sacred geometry, we can create a vortex of energy that acts as our own inner temple. Upon entering that sacred space in meditation, we can access the deep silence, becoming empowered to recognize lower thought forms and ascend in consciousness and being.

From there, he teaches, we become alchemists, transmuting intent into physical manifestation.

Julia: Just to begin, could you explain for our readers the importance of Sacred Geometry?

Thomas: Most of us who have an interest in Sacred Geometry have a burning desire to understand Creation — to know how everything comes into existence. When we have the desire to understand these things, the path takes us to higher vibrations and frequencies, colors and sounds, as both are one and the same, being but different expression of Energy.

In studying the Sacred Geometry of Creation, we first understand that creation takes place in what is known as “no time and space,” and that it then enters into dimensionality through the intra-dimensional doorway known as the Golden Mean Spiral.

Why do we utilize Sacred Geometry? The purest answer is because it creates for us the frequencies of a controlled place of deep silence, the place of The Silent Watcher, that has no beginning or end. The Golden Mean is the doorway to this place known as “no time and space,” where we can interact with Creation. It is the sacred doorway to the intuitive, the space to where we once again are God in action.

This sacred space is also an environment of a frequency of great understanding within the universal All That Is. En masse, we are creating a tremendous amount of discordant energy on the planet, and in order to again become the Master Presence that we are, we need to cease participating in the thoughts and feelings that give rise to discord. The closer we become to the Creator, the further we move from the analytical mind, and the more we awaken the intuitive mind.

This is our destination: to unlearn, as the Tibetans state it. To once more allow the intuitive to be the directing force, and allow the outer, or analytical, mind to take a step back into its divine plan of carrying out the intuitive.

So the student uses Sacred Geometry to bring in a controlled space for the purpose of entering into the Great Silence, where we then have a choice of which thoughts and feelings we will participate with. The focus and discipline of Sacred Geometry sustains the silent mind. We go into that space in order to send discordant thoughts and feelings into the Light.

Julia: Could you compare the sacred space within a physical temple to the one we create within? How does the sacred space in the physical temple come into being?

Thomas: If we take it as given that there is energy acting within the pyramids and temples, then we might first want to look to the cause of that energy. Every effect has to have a cause, so where does the energy come from?

The greatest source of energy on the earth is electromagnetic energy, energies of outer Creation that actually surround the planet and reside in what is known as the magnetosphere. In essence, the planet is a giant gyro. A solid core that spins faster than the outer shell creates this electromagnetic energy.

It’s important to understand that this energy has the acting energy of the electron, or the intelligent part of the atomic structure.

Seeing this, we can now see that the temples are like antenna to this magnetosphere. They call in a vortex of magnetic energy.

When the electromagnetic energy vortex enters the temple, the electron is split away from the magnetic wave and both are utilized to create three harmonics within the temple itself, and there are in turn three chambers in the Great Pyramid that express these three different frequencies.

The King’s Chamber represents the spiritual, and has the quality of Silence, the place of everything that was, is, and will be.

The Queen’s Chamber is the mental chamber, where for example you could write an equation one mile long and recall it all.

Finally, the catacombs, or the place of the dead, is the place of alchemy, bringing energy into the physical plane or the third dimension. New plant and animal life, for example, could be created here without disharmony, through this great alchemy of love.

So the Great Pyramid represents these three frequencies of energy and the harmonic creation of new forms of life.

Zero point — the controlled space I talked of earlier — is always present in the Great Pyramid. And we also utilize this controlled space in many of the other temples, like Macchu Pichu, that were erected as ascension schools.

The alchemy of creating new forms of life in the ascension temples took place at the time of the solstice, because at the exact moment when the energy switches either from the longest or the shortest day, there is a Zero Point where it was possible to bring these new forms onto the planet harmony with the All That Is.

Likewise, there are three energies or frequencies that are used for creation: Force, Thought (knowing), and Love. In the third dimension, these three aspects of creation are usually experienced as the experience of physicality, mind, and Love. These are the energies that actually surround us in the seen and unseen.

Julia: What about emotional energy?

Thomas: Emotional energy is not noted here because that is simply a combination of feelings and thoughts.

So we can see the representation of Being One with the Universal Creation or All That Is.

But the most important message is that we have a temple within each one of us. All of the great masters have told us of this temple. It is the Temple of the Heart.

All of the great outer ceremonies are simply representational of what we can do and become within. Ascended Master Jesus the Christ said of the miracles he had performed, “All this ye can do, and more.” The true work for each of us is within our own temple.

Julia: How do we create sacred space? How do we apply this in our lives?

Thomas: Sacred space was created before the temples. It is a state of creation itself. We can create sacred space in our own temple. If we pray or meditate in one place regularly, we then create a vortex. By vortex, I mean “spinning energy,” whether it is positive or negative. The personal vortex is also a Golden Mean spiral. The spinning of the chakras creates a doorway into no-time and space. If we can create the doorway, then we have access to the Great Silence.

So we utilize Sacred Geometry to create a sacred space from which to ascend to the point of being Love in Action, in the Now. We can express this ascended God presence in the third dimension by applying or being in the Great Silence. We cannot be generating discord and applying Love divine at the same time. We have to be able to sustain the Love in the Now, and extend it out into the dense world of Creation. The same doorway of the Golden Mean is used in this respect also. We become God in Action.

Julia: What tools do we gain within this sacred space for living in the dense or physical world?

Thomas: The ego, or analytical mind, has been taught that it is in charge, and this teaching must be unlearned. Being in the sacred space teaches us to move beyond the analytical mind and into the intuitive mind. We can encounter the intuitive mind only in sacred space, and from there we can learn to identify the analytical mind.

The analytical mind co-creates doubt, fear, and resistance, as well as the patterns that we play through our mind when we are operating out of habituated behavior, on automatic pilot.

Of course, the analytical mind resists entering this sacred space. We have to realize that we will have doubts and fears about the “inner knowing” or truth that we encounter in sacred space. We have to have the faith and courage to stay with the inner knowing, even when we don’t see proof of what we experienced and felt.

We will still feel doubt and fear, but once we realize that they come from the lower mind, the analytical mind can know that these instead of participating with these thoughts and feelings, we need to transmute them.

The Akashic Records say that the lower, or carnal, mind sprang forth at a certain point in time. This tells us that it is finite, for only finite things have a beginning. Infinity has no beginning. But finite things also have an end. As well as having a beginning point, the finite mind also has an end point. For this reason, it is much more afraid of us, who are conquering it, than we are afraid of it.

And until the lower mind reaches its end point, it will continue to create as much chaos as possible, for that is how it sustains itself. It gets its energy by stealing ours.

When we generate lower thought and feeling, it goes to the lower collective. This is why we must watch carefully within our minds, standing guard not to participate with doubt. For example, the lower mind will definitely seed doubt about what I’m saying here, for it does not want to be found out. It constantly puts our focus on outer things and illusions.

As a result, we need to actually crave discipline. No matter how much resistance we have to meditating each day or being in the sacred space, we need to apply discipline to every aspect of our lives, including eating and breathing. And we need most of all to stand guard on our consciousness.

So we have to have a plan for meditation, a plan for the expression of the true self.

Julia: How is alchemy used in the sacred space? How can we use this practice in creation?

Thomas: Let’s say that we realize the need to meditate and create a sacred space or altar for meditation.

So we do this. And after we accomplish meditation in this place, we have actually changed the energy of that place. We can walk by it and allow ourselves to feel that the energy really has changed.

This is alchemy, the actual change in a physical space caused by spiritual intent.

Alchemy in the mental realms occurs when we seek the silence and transmute our thoughts. So we begin with sacred space and enter into the inner calmness. We then go to work standing guard, transmuting thought and feeing until we reach the Great Silence. And once, through inner work, we have remembered how to reach the Great Silence, we begin to apply this discipline in the Now — in every moment of every day.

When we start to go into deep silence, there will be a feeling of resistance. If we realize that this feeling is a temptation to procrastinate, then we know that this feeling needs to be transmuted.

So, for example, we may remember that we need to make a phone call or feed the dog or balance the checkbook. So we then realize that, of course, all of these things must be done. But right now we are learning not to participate in these thoughts. We are realizing that these thoughts and feelings, which have misled us for so long, are attempting to take us out of the Now. So we stop going along with them.

The best permanent solution I have ever experienced is to be in the great alchemy of lifting up and transmuting these energies, as they seek to intrude, back to their perfect form and color.

So, to sum it up: When we go into this place of silence, the outer/lower mind tries to intrude. But we can identify the thoughtforms of the outer mind and learn to “tag” them when their energy intrudes.

And once we have identified them, we can stop them. For example, we can ask God to take the thoughtform and send it up to the Light. If we do this long enough, this transmutation process will actually become an auto-response to the thought patterns of the outer mind.

If the thoughts are stopped, we can go into a place of true silence. The Light is silent. Peace is silent. We have to move into the silence Now. For there is no other time but Now. We can only be in the silence if we are in the Now. If we are not in the Now, we are out of the silence.

The lower mind is not in charge. It just wants to be. But the analytical mind was actually created for the purpose of carrying out, in physical reality, the commands of the intuitive God Center within each one of us. If we recognize the thought forms and feelings of the lower mind, we have free will and choice. If we don’t recognize them, then we have no choice.

This Now, which is within the heart, is the sacred space of the temple within. This is the place at which we can reach Zero Point and create. We can actually command thought through our feeling center and qualify the particles to act. This is the alchemical act of precipitation. From this point, there is no question as to what we are, what we are becoming. We have willed it; it is as certain as knowing who is coming to dinner because we have invited them to dinner. When we create something at this level, we simply expect it to show up in the manifestation plane.

This is important. Expecting what we create to show up is energy brought into manifestation. It is like looking at the thunderclouds and knowing that it will rain. There is no question.

The laws of Alchemy say to “become the accomplished desire,” to feel it, to be it. When we become the accomplished desire, and do not participate with doubt and sustain the application, we precipitate the desire.

When we command the desire through being centered, we literally command the particles that compose matter to act. This is alchemy — the transmutation of thought into the material plane.

We will be tempted to believe, through the action of doubt, that the accomplished desire will not show up or manifest — that the process didn’t work. But the truth is always that if we don’t participate with doubt, fear, or worry, we will experience what we are intending to manifest. There is a delay or response time — it could be seconds, minutes, or days, depending on the amount of knowing that was applied to the manifestation and our level of previous attainment — but it must happen.

The more you apply these universal laws, the quicker things come into manifestation. But we never wait for the manifestation, for this would mean it has not yet happened. No matter what we may think, God within has acted, and it is up to us to hold this knowing.

In this space/time between universal and manifest — before the precipitation — it is important to transmute all permutations of the lower mind, and this means any feelings or thoughts that relate to doubt, fear, or worry.

All lower things, when raised, pass through the violet flame. These thoughts can be eliminated by sending them through the violet flame, transmuting them, and staying in the place with the accomplished desire. The accomplished desire will then manifest.

This is alchemy. It is how it can be used to manifest the Creation in the sacred space in the temple. We are all temples with sacred space. We can all transmute our feelings and create our desires through this application of alchemy.

We can move dimensionally into ascension through this same application. This is the greatest alchemy of all, to ascend. We do not need workshops, or teachers, or temples any more. We need only to remember what we have always known. We enter into this knowing in The Great Silence.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Thomas: Anyone can create and sustain sacred space. We are all equal. You can remember to transmute the outer or lower mind that will seek to intrude. Whatever you need is here through the application of these Universal Laws.

These things of God are here for our use. You must learn to become disciplined to apply them. Our desires will change from wanting what we want to wanting what we need. We will be again in the dance of life.

We are all here to serve. If you know it, that’s great. If you do it, that’s even better.

For some of us, the ascension process makes us want to run away. For others, we ask what we can do to be of service.

If you are a priest or priestess — someone who understands the Light and Silence — then hold this Love Light of Truth in service so that it is available for those that are moving into this consciousness.

Thomas Morton awakened spiritually at an early age and has been in service ever since. His life has been focused on healing the planet’s energies. To that end he works with both beginners and advanced lightworkers, and travels the world, speaking to groups and working directly with the Earth’s grid.

A Message from the Wolves: A Time of Change

wolfgirl

 

We, the wolves, have walked by your side for eons, holding the vision of your inner abilities—your power. It is time to change your beliefs of how life works. You see it as a timepiece, a linear progression of planned events, and set of rules, which never changes unless you learn how to manipulate them. But it is a time of change, a time to dream.

Dreams come in waves, and the universe moves in waves of love, illumination, and possibility. Your own powers are amazing; they transcend the linear motion of time and space. They have to do with how you see life and what you believe about it. It’s far more than a set of physical rules, which are mainly dictated by specific levels of duality.

The laws of physicality change when you transcend to a higher level. The things referred to as small miracles–parking spaces, a small windfall, or unusual kindnesses from others—compose the fabric of materiality at a higher level of frequency. Not surprisingly, you see and feel life quite differently in this space.

For a very, long time, the animals of the planet have visualized your powers coming back into form, but nothing changed. Now, the earth is changing, and she is taking you along with her higher vibrations. Anyone can see this—if she/he cares to look.

Higher vibrations awaken the extraordinary sense of dreaming. Dreaming means finding your universal connection, believing in it, and listening to its direction while imagining a different “reality.” Reality has many shapes and forms; you must find the best one for yourself.

Life was meant as an experience of beautiful, wonderful dreaming, but everyone forgot the gift by believing in the lower aspects of life instead of remembering the magic. Many of you are awakening, and this involves believing in your gifts and acting within the guidance of your power.

When dreaming, it is most important to remember the earth by adding images of grass, sun, water, and flowers. You are composed of earth. The stars, moon, and night sky are beautiful. By remembering the earth, you strengthen your images and help to bring your dream into form.

At this point, everyone has a place in the physical world in the lower form. We might call this “work”, and we might call your dream of future “abundance” because everyone longs to play in the grass and flowers, to walk by water, or gaze at the stars without worry. There is also another self, which many are currently creating—the vision of the awakened self, who brings the two parts of the self together.

Beyond this, there are many shapes and forms of possibility for the earth. It can feel beautiful and supportive—if you allow it.

We will add that it is easy to wish bad things and difficult to create good things. This will change in time, and the trend will reverse. So, we ask for your patience with what appears to be a difficult task. Rejoice when “reality” responds to you. Remember the invisible world. And remember that we tell stories about mankind every night. We see you in awakened form.

One day, we will speak together, and you will hear our voice. In the meanwhile, hear our words. Listen to the earth and perfect your dream of happiness.

Questions:

What is dreaming? 

You confuse dreaming with watching images of movies and television. You think the images are real. The art lies in projecting similar types of images for yourself and aligning with the inner self. (Many of you spend more time watching imagery of an imagined life as opposed to creating a magnificent life for yourself.)

What will bring the new life of the planet into being?

You call it love. We call it connection with life and the planet. It is feeling into the wholeness of the world and calling it “good.” (It is happening anyway, and it will pull you along. We say, “Go with the flow. Let it pull you along with it.”)

What are the two parts of the self?

There is a part who walks in the outer world. This part of you has awareness of your activities and can feel into the moment. It is the outer self because it partakes in the current world. The new self bridges all realities and senses dimensions; it is magical and powerful. It is who you are becoming.

Working with Emotion

bigwave
For those who are open, the New Age brings an increase of intuitive ability as a greater connection with the “all.” We feel the people around us with greater acuity along with sensing their thoughts and place of being. With awareness, this can become a wonderful learning experience. If we don’t know what we’re feeling, it can bring confusing and vacillating emotions.
Everyone “picks up” on the people around them. We also receive information about locations, timing, and objects. For the most part, we wander through life without awareness of the information supplied by our inner being. In a time of awakening, everyone, who desires it, can gain greater consciousness and clarity. (As we move into love, we become more connected.)

It’s also necessary to feel into our inner self to perceive the catalyst behind our emotions. Are we suddenly angry or distraught–or are we perceiving the mood of others around us? It’s an important discernment in awakening. Otherwise, we move through life on the energies of others without truly perceiving our feelings, reactions, or how we are altered by the presence of others.

Emotion, which represents water, has many faces. It can be still and peaceful, wild and raging, or murky and dark. It connects streams, rivers, and oceans. On a universal level, the element of water is magnetic; it is cool, calm, and wet. It is the force of emotion, intuition, persistence and devotion. Water can cleanse and calm. (Think of taking a shower or bath at the end of a long day.)

When we encounter challenging emotions, we can move into love or peace. In this way, the current of spiritual energy carries us through the river. We can also recognize the source of undesirable emotion, which opens the door for new possibilities. We can eliminate the source, see it in a different light, or create from a new perspective. It’s also helpful to realize that we always receive emotion from others, and our lives are colored by this. By understanding how and when it happens, we open the door for many, new choices.

Here are a few tips.

  • The goal is to visualize the highest and best reality for everyone while seeing their flaws and tendencies accurately. It’s helpful to recall the positive qualities of a person, to identify their best characteristics by remembering what we like about them, which raises the overall vibration.
  • When someone says hurtful or upsetting words, it’s important to notice our reaction. If we’re honest, then we know that we always have these feelings. It’s not just the other person. It’s our perpetual response. Sending light to our feelings and asking to experience life differently is often helpful.
  • When faced with drama, do the opposite. If we engage, then try gentle withdrawal. If the other person usually withdraws, then step forward and continue the discussion softly. Remain kind.
  • Omit the blame. Forgive others for how they make us feel. On some level, we’ve chosen to be part of the situation, and we can either look at it as learning experience or as a victim.
  • In truth other people can make us feel good or bad, particularly if we’re not paying attention to our inner voice. For example, if someone is angry, depressed or physically ill, we usually feel tired after speaking or visiting with them. Forgive it all by learning when and how we can best interact with others. It’s our responsibility, not theirs.
  • Share the truth in fragments. When the other person is calm, make an observation from a detached point of view. Share a small piece of insight about the pattern. Do it from a place of love. No one can take it all in at one time.
  • Understand that everyone becomes temperamental when overwhelmed or tired. Rest often and wait before speaking. Go for a walk or practice yoga or meditation. We can remind ourselves that emotions and feelings don’t last very long.
  • Loving all aspects of life and seeing the light of other people (particularly in karmic relationships such as husband, wife, parents or child) is part of the path of the soul. Beneath the surface of everyone and everything, there is light. The light brings great freedom and joy.

Feeling the Great Shift

boat_clouds

 

The Great Shift amplifies awakening. It’s part of the strong emphasis on spirituality–and many internet sites reflect the shift. It underlies the numerous descriptions of light and love along with testimonials of personal experience. (Some people believe it brings the possibility of a new Golden Age with peace, enlightenment, and renewed physical vitality.)

It doesn’t matter how or why you stepped into the universal experience of awakening. By developing your inner knowing and personal expansion, you learn to interpret universal principles (in a way, which is right for you–and apply them in your personal life. The important part is the discovery of your inner voice, learning to feel your heart and how to listen to them.

A few signs of feeling the shift include:

1)  A heartfelt feeling of connection and a desire for expansion. True spirituality is an expanded state, and it includes the desire to share truth with others so they become happier and stronger.

2)  A desire for increased knowledge. Study is meaningful as is spiritual information. But true knowing comes from the heart. We read, study, and listen, but we weigh the knowledge in the heart to measure its truth. (You feel greater respect for other people’s perception of truth-even if you are not in agreement. Everyone evolves at a particular pace, and truth presents itself when the person is ready to accept it.)

3) Intuitive flashes and sudden inner knowing. The inner self speaks through flashes. When we act on the flashes, we receive even more intuitive knowledge. The inner voice speaks quietly and clearly. We generally feel centered when it contacts us. Listening to the directives of the inner self changes the flow of life. (Intuitive flashes can appear as symbolic, partially correct/incorrect, indicative of a coming situation, or absolutely correct. They are “reads” of energy and appear in different forms as our gifts progress.)

4)  Recognition of the temporary nature of feelings and experiences. You accept the temporary nature of negative and positive feelings for days or weeks. You recognize negative feelings can come from clearing, glimpsing the shadow, other people, mass consciousness, or universal events. You work on shifting your feelings and thoughts while waiting for the energy to change.

4)  Sensations of a big shift. You occasionally feel uplifted, very positive, or supported by the universe. You have moments of feeling the grand shift, and you feel the light. You know something big is happening.

5)  Faith in the process. You stay committed to your meditation, work on improving your vision of life, speaking more gently, and seeing the goodness in others.

6)  Working on boundaries. You are willing to speak your truth and set boundaries for greater happiness. You’re also willing to see when you are unreasonable (everyone is unreasonable some of the time!)

7)  Acceptance of patterns. When events, words, or situations repeat, you are willing to see your involvement. When it repeats, it has something to do with you. You’re curious and interested in examining the event.

8)  Seeing the beauty. From time to time, the beauty of the world strikes your life. You notice the perfect movement of trees, the sound of the wind, and the touch of the sun. It’s wonderful, and you feel astonished by the loveliness of the world. (A few minutes later, it may look like a drab winter scene. The transformation is the hint of a higher state.)

9)  Raising your frequency. You realize raising your frequency, changing you, and seeing your life in a different way is the key to creating a more aligned life. It’s also part of attuning to the cycle of change—and it’s how we will change the world. (It’s part of the quiet revolution.)

Raising Your Consciousness

Sunrise

The path of the soul is not always an easy one. It is filled with surprises–the experience of darkness and light. It is a dance of duality, a choice between higher and lower thoughts and feelings as well as soul connection. When we arrive at a soul destination, it is because of choosing higher consciousness.

It’s not always easy because we have to focus on the desired result while we are experiencing the “reality” we’d like to change. We have to believe more in our power to create something bold and new than in the experience of our current reality. The state of expanded consciousness comes from the support of connection or The Field.

It may come in bits and pieces–or all at once. But the soul eventually leads to new oceans, continents, and galaxies–and brings a clearer picture of the world. Increased consciousness leads to seeing the real world of light, beauty, and love.  We move into a state of higher consciousness through choice. It is by choosing responses, people in our lives, actions, and most of all–connection and vision. It’s easy to say we want to choose higher emotions and thoughts, but it’s also a practice. 

Let’s look at the elements:

1) Vision – it’s important to visualize a positive outcome as though it is TRUTH–and you are experiencing it NOW. It’s not about dreaming or desiring a future. It’s about actually experiencing a strong shift now–in this moment. See it vividly in the mind’s eye and trust the universe to bring it to you. Let go of “how” and any left brain permutations. Believe you have the power and love to create for you. (It’s helpful to skip over problems at once each day and visualize the life you’d love to live. You can work on problems with laser focus for a few moments, then send love to them. Take small five minute steps whenever you can.)

2) Working through illusion–the illusion often involves doubt and fear. While the envisioning can look and feel real, our environment looks the same after the practice. Whenever you become aware of the illusion, move back into the vision (above in #1.) It’s also helpful to think of times you moved through your fear to create something better. (It’s how we move more deeply into the true self and learn to alter the focus of our mind.)

3) Move into the emotion of love whenever possible. The emotion of love is for you. It’s about how the universe loves you and how you love yourself enough to meditate and visualize good things daily. (It’s not about other people. When your heart is open, other people with open hearts share their love. But it’s impossible to make people love you or fulfill your needs. That’s between you and the universe–and what you create together.)

4) Working with emotion and thought. Consistently accept your level of thought and emotion, but make an effort to raise it. For example, try to keep conversations positive and focus on positive emotion. It’s not always possible, but we can observe and raise our feelings and thoughts to a higher level. Everyone “picks up” emotion from everyone else; it’s important to separate ourselves from the projections of others. Only you can decide what is true about you. (Discernment is needed. What is the projection of the other person’s agenda? What is mirroring or truth?) Regardless, we can always ask for a higher state of being. We can imagine vibrating at a higher state of being–and we can observe our lower thoughts and change them over time.

5) Focus – every moment brings an opportunity to focus your consciousness. Are you focused on the positive or negative– the final outcome or the feeling in the moment? A part of you is beautiful, limitless, and pure light. By focusing on the higher part of your self, it’s possible to pull in big changes. Does it mean your life changes tomorrow? Sometimes, yes, it changes, and, sometimes, you wait. But you learn a great deal about the flow of your energy, focus, and consciousness.

6) Connection – meditation with an open heart leads you into connection. Creation and/or manifestation is much more than creating your desires. It’s about finding alignment with a higher force by allowing the light and love in the universe to connect with you. It’s the feeling of a beautiful day that flows on forever with the softness of early morning and the dim blue of twilight or a supporting hand when you’re tired. It’s a boost, a hint of direction, light, and support–all at once. It’s the whole reason behind higher consciousness; it leads you into your inner wisdom and love. It illuminates your world.

7) Angels and guides. All good teachers and teachings focus on the importance of the forces in the unseen world. The Beings, who reside in the invisible world, live on a higher vibration. They extend light to you when you ask for help. They lift you to a higher level of being and offer comfort and support.

NOTE: Through this process of lifting our vibration, we learn a great deal about the placement of our consciousness. It teaches us to alter the patterns of our thoughts and energy. By learning to let go of our lower thoughts and beliefs, we ascend to a place of higher consciousness.

Child of the Universe

childoftheuniversePainting by Amanda Sage

Who are you, really?

You are a child of the universe born of the earth, sky, water, and fire. The earth feels your feet and hears your words; the universe experiences you as a sensation of light. You hold the power to create much by joining with your higher vision. You can move the world with your vision.

You are never alone. Angels dance above you, and the elementals walk with you in nature. The sun shines on you. The rain cools and refreshes you. The wind carries your thoughts.  Caught in a dance between opposites of duality, you often forget how you are always accompanied by the invisible world.

Sometimes, life seems small, but it is truly large. Worlds are found in flowers, and butterflies carry a multitude of messages. Nature speaks with you in every moment, sending harmony, peace, and the pattern of your divine blueprint. When you alter your focus by asking to see the infinite, this magical world opens.

It’s human nature to walk between the two worlds, to experience the mundaneness of life and the vast expansion of the mind, body, and spirit. You choose the direction of the moment, whether finding happiness in the mundane or making space between the mundane tasks to let the infinite flow through you. When you find the infinite flow, your creativity opens.

The universe flows through you. As with quantum science, instant answers are found as your consciousness moves through images, sounds, and color, manufactured by universal field. The experience can bring great opening to your life including answers, people, and the revelation of dreams and direction in life. The ultimate experience is the exchange of human and universal bliss.

It can happen by becoming very, very conscious. It can come from the feminine mystery of the earth. It can come from the fiery sphere of intellectual and spiritual realization. But when it comes, it is very real.  Your super-human powers of love and light amplify intensely, and you vibrate at a new frequency. The doors open, and you remember—you are indeed a child of the universe.

NOTE: Simply meditating on these thought can bring illumination. It’s also helpful to ask who you are without your personality, your perpetual way of perceiving life. There are thousands of wonderful ways of perceiving life.  You have only to ask.

Zero Point or The Void

A space exists between every heartbeat; it makes an appearance between the inhale and exhale of the breath. It is also the space between human consciousness and divine consciousness. In simple terms, it is known as the void. Greg Braden refers to it as zero point, and it is called the Great Mystery in the Tao te Ching.

It is a point of reception with the quantum field or the light. In one moment, our meditation or visualization takes on a new flavor. Or the light suddenly illuminates the woods on a drive or walk. Sometimes, we feel it as a response, a feeling of certain knowing, or a strong indication to travel in a direction.  Native Americans felt it as a response from the Great Spirit. Many have referred to it as “being in the light”—a state of grace, relaxation, and peace.

Others refer to it as the sacred space in the heart, the point lying behind/within the heart chakra.  In this place, duality lies in perfect balance—a resolution occurring from being at one while embracing “the mystery.” Part of the quest of spirituality is merging with the pivotal balance of the hidden heart space because impossible answers and endless possibilities are found in this realm.

The importance of the void lies in the element of transformation.  Modern numerology refers to the void as the number 13, the feminine completion of a cycle following twelve steps of transformation and accomplishment in the physical/spiritual realm. The thirteenth step involves moving into the nothingness (which is also a “something”) to find an ending to the last of a cycle and a new beginning simultaneously.

I mention it because we recently passed through 2013 with a strange mixture of ending and beginning energies. The Chinese interpretation of the Wood/Horse year refers to movement and change. Yet, change is best orchestrated by the inner self when connected to the Divine.

An intention to move into the void or to stay connected to the heart space is helpful—but finding and creating in the void is an entirely different experience. Change usually comes quite rapidly and is rarely exactly what we envision. It can be better, strange, or even pull in another life or reality in a matter of hours, days, or weeks.

The mystical state is somehow closest to quantum physics when everything changes its pattern according to our input, beliefs, and energy. It involves surrendering to light by letting go and feeling into the divine blueprint. Perhaps, we feel it or absorb it, but it ignites an entirely distinct, original flow of energy.

No one can tell anyone how to find the void or the flow of energy, issuing from it. We can tell of our own experiences, describe the feeling, or how we get there. We can hint and share clues. But it is the place of incredible change and manifestation for those who truly want to “get there.”

Here are a few clues:

1)      Meditate on the heart space. If you take classes, every class includes instructions for feeling the space behind the heart during the manifestation exercise. Listen and feel into it.

2)      Lie still and listen to your heart beats. Feel the space between them.  Or try it with your breath. Feel the universe breath into you.

3)      After visualization, feel where you project your imagery and thoughts. (You’ll probably notice sending a few thoughts or images to other people, the physical space around you, and to yourself. This is bigger.)

4)      Where does energy come from? What is the force or space behind it?

5)      What is the Great Mystery? What is the union of yin and yang? What is the source of light and darkness?

6)      Dawn and dusk separate day and night. They both contain an enormous amount of energy. Meditate during these times and watch the changing energy.

The Experience of Awakening

newsletter_landscape

Awakening can be defined as an open heart, an intuitive awareness, or a longing for truth. Some call it “inborn” knowing or remembering, but a great deal of it is learning about the feeling of the inner self. It comes from the practice of connection with the Divine through meditation, or it flows through the body as in yoga. It can also come from Nature as every particle in the (natural) physical world reflects it. But it is a directive from the soul—a learning about how the inner self works in the outer world.

Awareness is also part of awakening. We sense the energy and energetic exchange between people, objects, and situations. Sensing the energy can come through a heartfelt feeling or seeing colors or feeling heightened energy and/or happiness. Time often slows down, or life seems “softer” with more of a flow. Also, there is sometimes a beautiful synchronicity when events in life seem to fall into place.

With many people awakening at once, it’s a good subject for thought.

1)      One of the most useful tips about awakening: it comes in flashes. Occasionally, you’ll receive insights about a subject or feel completely connected. Then, it vanishes. You haven’t lost your insight—we live in a universe of duality. Awakening comes and goes on many levels as you master a particular lesson.

2)      Seeking is part of enlightenment and awakening. You must sincerely want it—not for personal power or even for the joy of the light—but because your soul seeks it with a great heart felt motion.

3)      Awakening changes your identity. You see yourself and the world differently.  You continually clear and move away from the person with problems who saw life from a limited perspective. You can’t see “the light” and stay the same.

4)      Awakening can occur in one or many areas in life–and not always all at once. You may expand your insights in a particular area of life but remain in the same place in another. It’s not good or bad. We usually develop the parts of the self that are closest to the heart or personal interests at first. Where attention goes, energy flows

5)      The people in your life may respond well or poorly. Some people will feel the light and instantly return it. Other people feel their personal darkness in the presence of your light. Keep working with your heightened light level. People will change and/or fall out of your life, or you learn to deal with them with greater detachment. (I didn’t say it was easy.)

6)      When your light level grows substantially (and brings the accompanying awakening), you may have a strong desire for expansion. Sometimes, you encounter a set of problems. Enlightenment brings development of skills, new insights, and ways of seeing life. (It often clears out many beliefs.)

7)      Your emotions (and life events) often move up and down with awakening. You become more emotional. You feel life more. At the same time, you become detached about issues, which bothered you in the past.

8)      Awakening is the answer for the planet. It opens us to light and love. It brings quantum change. If you don’t know how to bring it in, start with a simple mantra like “awaken.” Or ask: what would it be like if I lived life on a higher frequency? These types of questions aid in raising our frequency.

9)      A part of you is already awakening. You feel light. In this moment, you can expand this part of the self by imagining more light flowing through you and your life.

Awakening raises our vibrations. When vibration is raised, our perception of higher principles and universal law increases. Our light level literally acts as a catalyst for the desired change—it is the movement toward unity.
