Waves of Ascension

For the last few years and especially now we have been witness to amazing spiritual progress in our world. We are ascending, all of us together, whether or not we realize it.

Think about it…we are awakening after centuries of corruption, economic slavery, religious conflicts and self-limiting brainwashing since our childhood. In the last few years itself, we have seen books such as The Secret, The Law of Attraction, The Power of NOW and innumerable others that have helped people become more aware of what is within them, instead of just focusing on things and people around them. Yoga, meditation, energy healing, affirmations, intuition and positive visualization skills are as popular as any other in today’s world. While a few years ago we only heard of the word ‘spiritual’ in context of organized religions of the world, today it is not uncommon to find people who are spiritual and not necessarily religious, or those who are multi-religious and unity conscious. Universal love and compassion are the values associated with spirituality today instead of mere worship or blind belief in the supremacy of any particular deity of any specific land.

Many of us are experiencing changes in our aura, we are seeing an overlap in our astral and material worlds, our physical and light bodies are interacting, we are seeing dreams and realities converge to the point that we all begin to see the ‘illusion’ or ‘play’ of reality for what it really is. In a way ‘the Matrix’ is indeed opening up and we are all learning the truth of our higher or multi-dimensional existence beyond space and time and beyond the limitations that we were so long confined to. Our consciousness is ascending into the higher planes.

But also along with the exciting changes in our perceptive powers, our third-eye activation and the lucid visions or revelations that we are receiving from our higher self or higher consciousness, many of us are also feeling conflicted, confused, achy, moody, lonely, even depressed as old systems and rules are giving way for a new and totally different way of reality…. one that we craft from within. This is the time we all need to support each other in this wave of ascension that is taking over our planet by meditating individually and in groups. We need new forums for interacting with each other by organizing events and groups of healers and meditators for raising our vibrations. We are all gathering as one Soul of earth through our various earth families and friends, helped by our cosmic higher self or star family and angelic friends who are no other than God or Goddess, divine beings of love and light – our True Self.

For those of us who are in Mumbai this event provides one such opportunity. Do pass on the message to those who need it and hope to see you there. All donations are used for charity. Click here to register.

7 Steps to Spiritual Ascension

Spiritual Ascension is all about raising our consciousness in order to free ourself from the limited or conditioned matrix of beliefs and thinking of the outer world by ‘going within’ through meditation.

Here are 7 Key Steps that may help us ascend to higher states of consciousness:

  1. Letting Go Of Dogma: In the higher or ascended states we no longer are a follower of limiting beliefs preached to us from authorities because we have our own inner wisdom to guide us. We awaken through self-realization instead of through dogmatic belief-systems that have so far been used by some people to maintain power and control over others. Those who are strongly conditioned to following fundamental beliefs promoting ‘my God’ over that of other cultures, or any kind of ethenic or racial superiority of ‘a certain tribe’ or people over others, need to first let go of these politically motivated rigid notions and allow more unconditional love to flow from their hearts equally towards all beings.religion-3067050_960_720
  2. Healthier Lifestyle Changes: Ascension is not about being ‘superior’ to others and believing we are higher or holier than others, but about having more simplicity and wellbeing in our life. Lifestyle changes for spirituality are no longer about wearing special vestments or about occupying special spiritual thrones or positions. It is rather about having a healthier and joyful lifestyle with fresh air, clean water, nutritious organic vegetables and natural health through meditation, happier emotional state, joyful interactions and sharing of positive energy. It is not about proving our superiority over nature by controlling the elements, but about being harmonius with nature to share abundance with each other.positive-2257693_960_720
  3. Creator Consciousness: A lot of people have felt anger towards our political, economic and social systems around us by imagining that it is a ‘matrix’ set-up by powers outside our control. Fear of ‘reptilian’ or ‘draconian’ beings that have taken over our planet to control our limited resources and financial systems have been spread through conspiracy theorists. In contrast, ascension is about rising above paranoia and understanding the world to be a manifestation of our inner self. As our inner consciousness awakens so does our world. Through positive consciousness we are able to influence our world in a positive way and send energy towards earth healing by making powerful intentions for abundance, health, joy, equality and peace on our planet. For instance the four step process on www.earthhealingnetwork.com/forum meditation-64051_960_720
  4. Higher Cause: Having a career primarily for financial success has been a source of stress for many individuals. Material needs can be simplified and also easily met when we focus on our life purpose and do what gives us inner joy. Living for a higher cause instead of merely focusing on earning more or being richer than yesterday is the path to ascension. We are preparing to finally open our heart and live soulfully with the joy of giving. By feeling connected to the universe through our inner self, we can ascend to a higher path of our divine destiny. Afterall, the creator is within us and the creator lives through us and helps the world through us. Each of us is an embodiment of the divine self that is capable of bringing heaven to earth.angel-1667772_960_720
  5. Higher Self: While it is easy to believe that we are physical beings with a fixed reality to interact with, spiritual awareness helps us realize our true self that exists beyond space and time. We start experiencing prophecies, clairvoyance, astral travel and miracles that help us believe in our higher self, as a part of us operating from a higher dimension beyond the physical. Recognising that our angelic, divine or higher self is guiding us and helping us throughout our life includes understanding that any angels, deities or beings that we invoke, worship or pray to are actually our own multidimensional self that exists simultaneously in various planes and we are actually awakening our own inner powers through meditation to free more of our consciousness into the higher planes. milky-way-1023340_960_720
  6. Liberation: Many people have believed that we ascend to ‘God’ or ‘heaven’ upon death. However many of us are gaining awareness that unless we learn required lessons and transform ourselves from within, we are unlikely to ascend even if our present lifetime ends. We might manifest a similar situation from life after life until we learn to overcome our fears and accept our inner truth. Through awakening of unconditional love and positive consciousness we raise our vibrations towards ascension. This includes being free of expectations and endless desires in our physicality and feeling more and more peace with each moment of our life. Self contentment helps us detach from the need to reincarnate from one life to another in our physicality so that more of our consciousness can be liberated into the higher or transcedental planes. meditation-2486763_960_720
  7. Home: We may have surely heard of people who believe in ascension and wish to ‘go home’ whether to another planet they believe they are from, or to another star-system, a spacecraft, or to the Source as the next step in their spiritual or soul’s journey. The realization that we are all One Soul or One Being instead of many separate souls is something that helps us actually be at Home right now. We can let go of the illusion of non-duality by witnessing ourself as consciousness and seeing everyone and everything as an extension of our consciousness. Our Home is where our Heart is and our Divine or True Self or Source is simply Love. By going within ourself we can return to our Source or Home righ now, no matter where we may be physically located. The universe is within us and all dimensions and realities are within us as the pure potential of our innermost consciousness. We can through conscious choices, manifest any reality across time and space or simply be at peace with ourself in any moment.heart-2671879_960_720For more interactions join and post on www.aumnow.com

An Economic Vision for Saving the World

There is enough for everyone’s need but not for everyone’s greed and this TED talk is a stark reminder of that! It isn’t blue sky thinking to be able to ‘save the planet’ but inevitable if every city and country roots for this economic vision.

Five years ago Naoko Ishii, an Economist was appointed CEO of Global Environment Facility and discovered how economists so far including herself and her colleagues were totally ignorant about protecting and managing ‘Global Commons‘ i.e. our shared earth resources such as wildlife, air, water and land. In recent years a group of scientists defined 9 Planetary Boundaries the crossing of which could lead to catastrophic change in our survival on earth, and we had already crossed 4 of them and beginningto invade others.  planetary_boundaries

To change this alarming situation we must manage our Global Commons by acting like our ancestors who managed our local commons, such as fishing waters and pastures by preventing each other from polluting and depleting all our resources.

Her suggestions focus upon 1) Clean Green Cities 2) Green Energy Systems 3) Less Wasteful Production Systems and 4) Change our Food System to reduce Deforestation and Greenhouse Emissions.

Let cynics play that lone-voice-in-the-wilderness for a change while you and I spread her word to ‘think global, act local’ and take a step or two to make it a better place.

 

Seven Positive Meanings of the Super Rare Blue Blood Moon on 31 Jan 2018

Full Moon (100% illumination of face of the moon), Lunar Eclipse (alignment of earth, sun and moon), Super Moon (large full moon), Blood Moon (total lunar eclipses) and Rare Blue Moon (extra full moon of a month) have been talked about a lot in recent times, but on 31 January 2018 all of these happen together in just one night making it a special treat happening after 150 years.

Being scientific and spiritual is all about understanding all natural events in a positive way so that we reduce our fears and reprogram ourself to more happiness, success and peace by learning that the way we feel determines the quality of our life and our world in any moment.

While many people in the past or ancient history have been fearful and associated Eclipses and Blood Moons with apocalyptic prophecies, none of these have really come true. At the same time, those who meditate and take charge of their own life have been found to enjoy these events and motivate each other through positive energy work.

Here are some ways of understanding and aligning energetically with this event.

  1. Open Your Heart: The Moon represents feelings and influences the tides of earth. As humans we are all have emotional currents and full moons seem to amplify our inner state by bringing our unconscious energy into the open. Bottled up emotional energy can sometimes develop into complexes that become very difficult to treat later on. This spedial lunar tide can help us be un-repressed, allowing ourselves to feel and experience intensely, not fearing emotions and letting ourselves and our loved ones safely express their feelings without judgements. moonheart
  2. Go Within: This rare phenomena is another opportunity to meditate even more deeply and be in touch with the consciousness within us. Meditation is always good and when so many people are connecting together by linking to special moments such as this one, it amplifies the positive vibrations of earth and helps all of us unite in love and light. Peace and tranqulity in your heart and mind will radiate into the universe which is within yourself. You can see all beings in the universe as part of your expanded consciousness.go within
  3. Send Blessings: We sometimes feel that we are connected only through telephones and internet or physical contact with each other, but the truth is that we are always interconnected from within in this energetic web of life. This rare event observed by all of us on earth can be a chance to send blessings and healing to each other and to earth as a whole. In a meditative state, make positive intention for yourself and for others including your loved ones and your planet so that your good wishes manifest.moonangel
  4. Be Grateful: Synchronous events such as this one are signals from our higher self to be aware of the wonderful opportunity called life and the amazing manifestation called the universe that is a creation of our consciousness. We all can appreciate the beauty of nature and be aware of our natural gifts to live more abundantly. The more we focus on the good that we have received in life, the more of good things we will keep attracting or manifesting in our world. moon woman
  5. Enhance Intuition: Moon is a sign of our subconscious becoming conscious, and because this Moon is in Cancer (as per sidereal astrology or the actual position in zodiac), it is even better to use intuition at this time and take the guidance of divination such as tarot, oracular messages, dreams and channeling of higher guidance. You can get clear signals from the universe within yourself about lessons from your past experiences, about where you may be headed to in your soul’s journey, or the opportunities available to you in the present moment.moon dream.jpg
  6. Experience Healing: The Blood Moon is a total lunar eclipse as the planet aligns together with sun and moon. At such times some of us feel sad or intense about a lot of things and require to return to ourself for healing. Any trauma, pain or sorrow is brought into light so that we can take required steps for healing. Go for a relaxing healing session for spiritual rejuvination, forgiveness, re-energisation and unconditional love from the Higher Self. Breathe gently and feel positive energy or light entering each cell of your body and each corner of your aura to deeply heal from within.full.jpg
  7. Amplify Unity: As this rare event coincides with the second Wolf Moon of January and wolves represents unity and togetherness, we on earth can come together for healing our planet and freeing ourselves from imaginary boundaries of religion or politics. Holding small or large circles of interactive and meditative events held together with family, friends, neighborhood or even online can help us in amplifying unity consciousness and srengthening love on our planet.moon wold

Zeitgeist!

I was skimming an ezine where this editor was remarking at how futuristic gizmos and gadgetry of the original Star Trek (1966-1969) is taken for granted today from wireless communication to smart computers but what is still to come of age is that sense of racial harmony and well meaning spirit of exploration (and I’ll add, emphatic leadership) that so memorialized the series.

If scientific progress outgrows the emotional maturity of a race on one hand and on the other, mental evolution comes full cycle while science plays catch up, what you may ask, is the stumbling block in each case and why is it so important that both go hand-in-glove?

The most obvious answer is religious dogma. Now, religion can offer a moral compass to what is right and wrong but history is witness that opposing science or waging wars in the name of religion suggest scriptures or transcribed words of a founder (regardless of how sincere he or she was) are wide open to literal misinterpretation, especially when passages are likely to be lost in translation or re-interpretation by a less realized soul can leave one happily confused at best or fearful at worst! Is it wise to accept every single belief (and label anyone who question as heretics) when it only encourages grasping and narrow faith rather than generosity and kindness? Unfortunately, the tainted buck does not stop with religion and sorry to say, in this day and age with all the surplus cognitive feedback, atavistic dogma still seeps through country, culture, color among a ‘gentrified populace’.

This leads to cases of ‘ethical mirage’ – men and women with authority or power in every walk of life who by their experience, worldly or supernatural, viewed with awe or god like deference and therefore considered infallible and beyond reproach even when they go against the grain of plain decency, basic humanity or understanding. Is it not the job of true leaders to create more leaders who can think independently and act for themselves or to create a circle of die-hard followers? Loyalty is a blessing when it flings open your perception and a burden when it confines it! This is where a scientific attitude works as it helps you stay curious, explore alternate arguments and moreover, maintain objectivity specially when your own ‘unconscious bias’, even if you mean well, can polarize thinking.

Finally, hard-boiled skepticism. Recently, I shared a report analyzing socioeconomic trends of the last 100 years that surmised despite what some may opine, the world is actually changing for the better and surprised when a history professor of some repute decided to troll and slam-dunk the research, first in passive aggressive tones only to go verklempt when I offered to lighten up. Notwithstanding the fact he really needed to pull his chair into the sun, it taught me that some people don’t even want to look at data that conflicts with core beliefs and no matter what you tell them, they will conveniently flip it around and toss it right back at you. Although a healthy amount of skepticism is necessary to think through a balanced argument, being negative is not how we make progress. True, we all have cognitive biases that can make us think in a local and linear way but if we get past that, we may notice an opportunity where others see a problem. This isn’t all pollyannish thinking as a dyed-in-the-wool realist might like to say, cause nothing worthwhile can ever be achieved if every little objection must first be overcome!

Bill Gates famously said, most people overestimate what they can do in one year but underestimate what they can do in ten years. Given the pace of exponential technology, it is a foregone conclusion that many of our jobs will be automated more or less in the near future or done by robots who can do it faster, cheaper and work longer and even if you think, that’s unlikely to happen to you in this lifetime given your particular skills, mind you it wasn’t raining when Noah built his Ark, so why not just start by cracking open your most limiting belief this year or challenge yourself to be more kind by the end of week? You could be somebody’s hero, you know and I promise, your future self will thank you…

Seven Ways to A Better Earth

We all have witnessed fears concerning climate change owing to industrialisation, pollution and exploitation of earth’s natural resources, while wars and religious extremism have fueled political exploitation of land based on dogmatic justifications. While earth has suffered there is still a ray of hope if we can follow some of the paths of wisdom, peace and greater abundance.

  1. Spiritual Unity vs Divisive Religions: We have all seen that fear-based religion has merely been a tool used by some people claiming absolute power, religous superiority or authority to control land, resources and minds.  We can all awaken and see through this pattern so that we are no longer victims. Instead of blindly following religious texts that promote one specific deity over others and divide us against each other we need to be able to be at peace within ourself individually and to offer peace to each other through self-realization. Inner contentment and inner joy can help us refrain from fighting for worldly resources by understanding that we can all manifest a happier and abundant life through positive inner consciousness instead of submission to an outer religious precepts. free
  2. Life Purpose vs Jobs: Industrialization and material dependency was based on a fear that earth has limited resources and we all must exploit it to the maximum. Since childhood we were programmed to support corporate infrastructure where humans are more or less treated like robots and eventually replaced by AIs. In contrast when we awaken spiritually, we discover what truly gives us inner joy and happiness and switch to professions that fulfil us at deeper levels of creativity, wellbeing and peace. We see emerging professions of spiritual and intuitive nature focused on holistic health and natural lifestyle. Education could be more inner-focused than simply rote based on rule-based so that our kids learn how to understand themselves and manifest their own positive reality through better choices.kid meditate
  3. Simple Lifestyles vs High Fliers: The glamour of being millionnaires or celebrities led many of us to mindlessly imitate leaders of business, movie stars or politicians instead of looking within ourselves. A spiritual focus helps us get back to our real needs of peace, inner comfort, health and wellness. We need less of expensive brands, artificial makeup, fine-dining, fashion labels, lavish holidays, snobbish parties, sports cars or high-rises to give us satisfaction. We value and cherish a tidy home, healthy food, fresh air, clean water, healthy body, natural beauty, a happy heart and a peaceful mind. We can attract helpful people, social networks, friends, pets and colleagues around us who enjoy working and interacting with us based on our soul-purpose and higher consciousness. group yoga.jpg
  4. Natural Foods vs Processed Foods: Our main need for food is something that can be fulfilled through nature itself, yet we depend on corporations who give us processed and packaged foods that are not only harmful for health but also a strain on our finances and earth. We can all learn to grow some food at home or support our organic local farmers by purchasing healthy vegetables instead of depending on supermarkets that sell chemical and pesticide laden food, tinned or processed foods with harmful additives. Our spiritual focus gives us an intuition of well-being through which we are naturally drawn to healthy choices and pick up raw foods that improve our physical and mental fitness. A vegan lifestyle can additionally help us improve the condition of animals in our world so that we can stop cultivating them for being killed or exploited without  any real reason.rawfood
  5. Eco-Homes versus High Rises: Our cities no longer need to be turned to concrete jungles where people crowd to find corporate jobs. We can all live close to earth in eco-friendly homes where we have nature around us for meditation and wellbeing. A love for nature helps us develop a healthier environment which is less polluted or noisy. Country-life can be valued more than city-life. Solar power and green energy keep increasing in demand with coal based or petrol power reducing its monopoly. Homes need not be very large or expensive simply to project an image of power or prosperity. Instead we can have more spiritual townships where people follow more eco-friendly, less materialistic and peaceful ways of living in mutual harmony and cooperation.house-2616607_960_720
  6. Free Travel versus Polluting Vehicles: Traveling for long hours to and fro everyday simply to earn a living could be obsolete soon. The need to own a car can be reduced and public transport can be made less stressful if people can work from or near to their homes. This can be manifest through greater personal freedom and independence which can be an effect of spiritual lifestyles. We could also relocate to places of nature where we find our tribe and associate with positive people and work together for the common good. Walking or cycling could be the preferred transport option instead of polluting vehicles. In futuristic terms space travel could improve with free-energy instead of polluting energy.bicycle-788733_960_720
  7. Intuition versus Advertising: Our high cost of living is not due to the basic costing of goods but largely contributed due to corporate advertising and mass-media costs. As we discover our spiritual or heartfelt connection with the universe we depend less on traditional newspapers, television and mass-media that feeds us negative or unuseful data. Through inner self we feel more peaceful and stress-free. With people we make genuine interactions that further our higher purpose, we need not depend on corporate advertising to tell us how to live and what to buy as our intuition guides us. When lifestyle becomes less consumeristic and more natural we will  automatically see that most of our needs are met from within instead of outside, and consecutively our brain need no longer be attacked with constant advertising messages bombarded from all sources.crystal ball

FAQs On Spirituality and Self

There are many different points of views across different spiritual traditions regarding all of life, death and beyond, especially about the Self. Here are some ways to discover our inner truth based on self-introspection and deciding what feels right to you.

1. SELF CONCEPT: Is Spirituality about being Selfish or Self-centred (focusing on yourself and immediate needs) or is it about being Selfless and being a Martyr (sacrificing yourself for others)?

While some religions in the past have glorified selflessness and giving up your life for welfare of others, a few modern spiritual leaders have introduced the idea of being selfish and self-centered by putting yourself first and above all. Finding the balance between these two extreme views can feel hard to most of us.

However, the concept of Self or our True Self is all inclusive, in the sense that we care for ourself, as well as others when needed and as far as possible, while being aware that our inner consciousness can indeed expand and include in its welfare, ourself, our close family and mates, as well as our expanded universe or all that is as we learn, grow and evolve spiritually. As we learn more in our soul’s journey our idea about who we are can transform from personal or limited physicality to universal consciousness. This is however easier to appreciate intelectually than to experience holistically and most of us are still learning to heal ourself and our near ones while parallelly working on planetary and universal healing.

2. WORLD CONCEPT: Is Spirituality about being Otherworldly and disconnected from earth to the point of letting go of all things, or is it about being Worldly wise and focusing on law of attraction to have as much pleasure, wealth or success as possible?

A lot of people have wondered if our world is illusion and if there is another world which is more ‘true’ than this one over here. As such countless people believed in heaven, other-worlds, faerylands, higher dimensions where we are directly in touch wih Truth. On the opposite spectrum are people who believe in the world alone, and that whatever we have to experience happens on earth itself and because we live only once, we have to achieve as much success, fame, prosperity, enjoyment or pleasure as we can before we die. Both point of views can be hard to reconcile for most of us.

At the same time there is a new wave of realization that describes this world as well as other-worlds, as a direct manifestation of our own choices and consciousness levels. We create our universe, our heaven or hell, our life or afterlife and our next level of reality according to this point of view, and not necessarily consciously as our subconscious patterns are likely to be overwhelming. The more we meditate the more we connect with the Source of all there is and become conscious to willingly manifest or attract all our realities both worldly and other-worldly with awareness.

3. SENSITIVITY: Is Spirituality about losing all your sensitivity and being totally unaffected by anything or anyone, or is it about being super-sensitive and getting affected by everything and everyone to the point you cannot take it?

On one hand spiritual meditators say that they are detached from the world and from all thoughts, and connected with deep inner peace and bliss only, and on the other hand we have empaths and healers who can feel, sense and channel energies of people next to them or very far away, or of the planet or other beings, even if it hurts. Many of us try to walk the fine line between being detached from others and being connected with others at an emotional and heart level.

A new perscpective is that we are deeply interconnected with all beings as we are One with all and even as we feel like we are separate souls, we are all part of the One Soul or True Self. Therefore while we can feel intense emotions of others, channel energies and be able to see and feel the situations of other people, past, present or future and even other beings, we can also heal them and ourself simultaneously. As we feel the pain and suffering of others we also have the power to heal the pain and as we send healing so does a part of us receive it because the universe is within. The peace and bliss experienced as a result is the real key to liberation, instead of through detaching from everyone and being unconcerned about others.

4. YOGA: Is Spiritual Meditation about breathing techniques and exercises of the body or is it about concentration and mind?

Some spiritual churches and communities advocate concentrating or’meditating upon’ special holy words or specific images as the way to develop spiritually. Others believe in guided meditation or creative visualization for healing and manifesting a desired life, regardless of religion. At the same time there is a belief that meditation is about breathing exercises or focusing upon breath through ‘Pranayama’ , or observing our physical postures, physical exercises or ‘Hatha Yoga’ which is generally equated with Yoga, or ‘Raja yoga’ which is focused on ‘third-eye’ awakening.

The ‘inner’ view of meditation as a way of self-realization and being aware of ‘Who I Am’, or ‘I Am’ consciousness is quite different. In this point of view meditation is not about focusing on anything outside, such as words, music, images, physical sensations, mudras, eye gazing, postures, exercises, energy work or breath.  Those are various other yogas, whereas meditation is about observing your True Self ‘Within’, not limited to your physicality, mind or breath, but an ‘inner consciousness ‘ which is beyond body and mind. It is a receptive state of openness through which truth can be channeled or realized without making our mind focus on a specific object or activity. If we do begin with focusing on breath, physical action or mental activity or any specific visualization we have to let go of that and focus on simply ‘being with ourself.’

5. GOD: Is Spirituality about relating with a separate being called God above, or is it about being nice and cordial to everyone and living in harmony with outside world?

The traditional ‘theistic’ ideology that there is superior being called ‘God’ who is all-powerful beyond us, and above all of creation has dominated for millenia. We are taught by these systems that spirituality is all about devotional worship of ‘God’ and that belief in ‘God’ will lead us to heaven. We are asked to relate less with the world and more with ‘God’. On the other hand we have also been taught that we must be good to others and live our life in harmony with other people so that we have a good relationship with the world. Atheistic views on the other hand are solely ‘world’ focused with no idea about God or any superior invisible being.

The new understanding of God as not a deity to be worshipped but our True Self to be realized as our own Higher Consciousness, a Higher State of Being that is within all of us Right Now is emerging through Self Realization. The basis of this rationality is that we have all emerged from the same One and therefore contain the essence or energy within and never separate from the Source. In this sense, we need not die to be with God ‘above’ in ‘heaven’ or because God within us here and now, embodied and living as all of us and awaiting realization and awakening. We can be of loving service to the universe until our last breath and therefore unite with God while alive in whichever way we can by knowing Who We Are and Being One with Our True Self.

6. STRESS: Is spirituality about avoiding stress and responsibilities by closing our eyes or is it about taking a lot of stress and solving problems with our physical or mental efforts?

The belief that spirituality is about closing our eyes and isolating ourself from the world like an ascetic or monk is an age-old one. Some people even develop a latent anger or hate towards the world and avoid any responsibility whatsoever for their own family, society, or other creatures in an attempt to be spiritually higher or ‘holier’. At the other end of the spectrum, we have people who are highly stressed out trying to live for others, serving their families at the expense of their own health, working hard for serving corporate machinery and striving through our physical efforts or mental work to solve problems. Are they the real spiritual heroes who work out there and keep our systems going?

Spirituality as inner work, which is not stressful but a state of relaxed self-awareness and inner-transformation is now in practice. We try to neither isolate ourself through cutting off from family, friends and society and being ‘superior’, or get overworked in striving for the good of others while being stressed and drained ourself. Through our inner peace and inner joy, we discover why we are here in the world, we discover our inner source of unconditional love and kindness which is not something to ‘expect’ from the world, but to ‘accept’ within your heart to share, expand and grow in loving consciousness all our life. As we share our own inner treasure of love, peace and joy, we can relax, destress and be aware that we manifest our universe and that all beings are interconnected through our inner-self.

Who Are You In The Matrix?

Do we live in a simulation? This question is obsolete for three reasons:

  1. Ancient philosophers all over the world already said the world, our entire universe is ‘maya’ or an illusion
  2. Modern scientists and technologists have recently started to agree that the chances we are not in a simulation are too little
  3. Modern spiritual practitioners including this author have literally seen reality manifest through their mind, people, situations and world events

It is 100% true that we live in a ‘Matrix’ of energy being constantly crafted through all the stuff in our mind. It is just like being strapped in a virtual reality system that practically generates all your life experiences right out of your conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and expectations. The more we gain consciousness through meditation, and free ourselves from the slavery of our unconscious mental programming that we absorbed through the world, the sooner we awaken.

The Matrix is everywhere, wherever our mind is….. even right now!

While we are in the Matrix, which means the world is a projection or hologram around us, which of the characters of the Matrix movie do you relate with the most:

  1. The Seeker: A bit like Neo who always felt there was something not real about his world, and spent night and night researching the truth, we might be yearning for the answers and who knows even connect with the Source of this reality to save the world, much like The One. After-all the world is a creation of our mind and the more we practice the more miracles we can manifest.neo
  2. The Supporter: Many of us are akin to Trinity and others in the team of the Resistance, to provide love and support to spiritual seekers and help them in discovering their powers as their family members, partners, friends and colleagues who work alongside each other as one celestial familiy.trinitymatrix
  3. The Guide: The way Morpheus sought various ‘potentials’ and guided Neo out of the Matrix by showing him his ‘real self’ and getting him unplugged out of the conditioned or programmed reality, we could be guides for those who are yet to awaken, and those who make that choice (the red pill), provided we have been awakened ourselves.Morpheus-Matrix
  4. The Deceiver: Just like Cypher who knows too well that we are in the Matrix, but chooses to keep entertaining himself in the false reality even after being freed, we could fool ourselves with fame, fortune, worldly success and pleasures of the senses only to once again forget who we are. Unfortunately many spiritual masters have been doing just that, using the Matrix to fulfil endless personal desires. cypher
  5. The Agent: Like Agent Smith and his team of controllers some of us try their best to keep people absorbed in their routine lives or enslavement to worldly goals and expectations, whether through fear based systems of religion and politics or the false glamour of media and outer beauty. Matrix-agents-h1ladyinred
  6. The Architect: Much like the sophisticated Architect in the movie, a few people actually design control systems of corporate, political or religious nature to prevent inner freedom, so much so that even seekers such as Neo find themselves in a conundrum. architect
  7. A Program: Such as the Merovingian or the Twins who are designed to carry our certain repeated patterns of behavior, MOST people are simply repeating whatever they have learnt to generate certain outputs in society and in their personal lives, sometimes appearing to lead rich and successful lives, and at other times aspiring to achieve more in the Matrix of worldly projections.merovingian
  8. The Oracle: Like the old Oracle program, who is designed to be intuitive so as to predict the mind of humans, there are several seers, psychics and prophets who reveal the past, present or future and guide seekers or programs alike, and yet remain very much a part of the Matrix mother program.oracle (1)
  9. The Machine: The AI machines that literally draw all the life force or energy out of people to keep themselves alive, our machinery of social, economic and religious systems feeds on human resources to control the planet and land through our own mind. You may have been part of this machination. machine

FAQs About Spiritual Ascension

 Ascension is the process through which we raise our consciousness and unite through higher dimensions of love and light.

How Do We Ascend?

Through meditation and self-realization we can begin on the path of reuniting with our higher selves through several levels of awareness. We all share a common Highest True Self. Ascension is about bringing unconsciousness into the light of awareness so that we become a fully conscious creator and return Home to the Highest Self or Source.

How Do We With Negativity?

Any unconscious fear based energies, entities, thoughts, visions, wants or beliefs require transformation by (a) being aware of them and (b) raising our vibrations higher to love and light. Forgiveness of self and others, letting go of past blame, hurt, victimhood through present moment awareness, peacefully detaching from harmful cords, clearing negative thought-forms into light, shielding aura with a transforming filter.. are some of the ways. We are 100% incharge of our vibrational state.

How to Raise Our Vibrations Further Through Inner Healing?

Expanding our consciousness requires raising our vibrations through our earth star chakra, through our lower chakras and towards our heart center of unconditional love and higher to the transpersonal chakras that connect with the Source or Highest Self. Not merely techniques, but a true inner transformation to more kindness, truthfulness, integrity, simplicity, joy and radiance raises us to more positive or higher states of being.

How to Discover and Fulfil Our Divine Life Purpose and Plan?

We all have chosen our present life and have a 100% choice at each point of time to align with the Higher Self. Our life purpose and plan flower out more beautifully as we allow the Higher Self of Pure Love to take over through intuition and dedication to positive living to fulfil our Highest Potential.

How Do We Connect With Higher Guidance or Intuition?

By focusing on our inner silence in meditation we can connect with the Higher Self and Source who guide us perfectly. As they exist beyond time-space limitations we can receive exact visions or messages of the past, present or future but with a 100% choice to transform our energy and manifest a better reality any time. Divination tools or experts can only be a catalyst depending on their connection with the Source.

How Do We Unite With Twin-Flame or True Love?

Our twin-flame is not a person outside but our inner or true Self always connected with the Source. As we attain self-realization we know that outer relationships are manifested through our own energy patterns and our true self is beyond limitations or karmic connections unlike soulmates and relationships in the outer world. Our Twin Flame helps us expand our consciousness beyond expectations through unconditional love for all including ourself.

How Do We Integrate With Our Multidimensional Self?

Our lower fear based self projections or demons are illusion, our outer world is a self projection, while our truth or God is within. We are creators discovering our creator self on earth and uniting with divine self at higher dimensions through ascension. Our Higher Multidimensional self is one with the universe as we integrate and ascend from within to awaken from our unconsciousness.

How Do We Unite With Our Star Families?

Unlike soul families and soul groups that are from the self-projected world around us, star families are not from current level but at an ascended state of being. Star-beings include several star races, planets, star systems, space crews and galactics that are not from our outer universe but from our ascended inner universe, operating from beyond time-space and physicality. We reach them through higher consciousness and meditation.

What About Alien Disclosure and Global Conspiracies?

Our Star Families and Multidimensional Self are in the higher realms and not aliens from physical universe. They are connected with our Higher Self through meditation and we can manifest their physical presence in our world through our vibrational attunement with them. We are not victims of conspiracies because we are creators and the universe is a manifestation of our consciousness. Conspiracy theories are based on a belief that people and political or corporate systems have power over us, which is true only at unconscious levels. Through consciousness we take back our own power and detach from untruth.

Are There Special Prophetic Dates for Mega Events of Global Shift Or Ascension?

Through our Higher Self  we can manifest great shifts and influence global events not limited to any specific dates or prophecies through numerology, religious beliefs or astrology. In the past new agers have been channeling about special dates and signs in the sky or numbers, however now we are realizing that everything outside is a direct manifestation of our own intentions and beliefs and we need not wait for anyone or anything from the outside for our ascension, both individual and universal.

Who Are Angels, Divine Beings and Ascended Masters?

Our One Higher Self takes many wonderful forms across time, space or religion to guide us based on our present receptivity and spiritual state. We can literally see, telepathically communicate, get clear visions, dreams and voices from angels, divinities and ascended masters not through mental thoughts but through our third-eye awakening by looking within. If we see their clear projections or manifestation outside,it is an opportunity of inner integration. We have to differentiate from false visions or voices from mind or outer world and our true Higher Self and Ascended Beings.

How Do We Integrate With Higher Self and Ascended States?

By amplifying our lightworking, selfless dedication to higher cause, spiritual self-realization, personal and planetary healing and accepting the universe as our own creation helps us integrate with creator consciousness and Source.

How Do We Deal With Ascension Symptoms?

Ascension is about raising vibrations to Higher State of Being and Higher Dimensions of Love and Light. If we experience any harsh or uncomfortable symptoms it is due to heightened sensitivity to thoughts, energies or people around us or our resistances, confusions or blocks. In this case we need to go deeper within and detach from negative thoughtforms or unrequired information by transforming to light and focusing on inner self. Positive and true symptoms of ascension are peace, joy, liberation, higher purpose, synchronicity due to oneness with universe and conscious creation of reality at each point leading to self-realization and Source unity.
