Ascension Blocks: The Illusion of Free Will

Do we have Free Will?

Of course – say spiritualists especially we who have followed new age masters such as Doreen Virtue, Hicks and Hay house diligently over the years.

We are proud and happy that we can manifest our reality.

Infact – we can also manifest our ascension, visualise and awaken into a higher dimension, ascend to the stars, to heaven by manifesting it, ascend the planet to the higher dimensions.

But is this really true?

Some experiments I have conducted, my own experiments have confirmed some rather surprising facts, some that are challenged by others, others who have not attempted those experiments at all but insist I listen to them instead of being on my own path.

  1. EXPERIMENT 1: Visualise something happening in your life, a pleasant experience perhaps, maybe a new gift you want someone to present you, your favourite perfume perhaps. Okay, make it vegan. Now check the results and find out what happens. Whenever I have attempted this it has happened (not any more as I am not into keeping objects now). For example several years ago I embarked upon these experiments, was short on cash and wanted a perfume of a certain brand – affirmed mentally that someone will gift me one, next week call from a new acquaintance that she wants to meet me for a perfume company’s marketing research and will pay me for it and gift me a bag of perfume and makeup. Repeated similar experiment several times and similar results in astonishing ways were evident.
  2. EXPERIMENT 2: Visualise a situation you want in your life, make it a pleasant one if you want. For example a nice date, a lovely dinner perhaps, with someone very attractive. Make it as specific as you want. Whenever I have visualised a situation in my life, it has manifested incredibly fast, in my younger years it was about being asked out by a lot of people, a fancy date in a restaurant, being given compliments on how nice I look at a dance party, being interviewed by a magazine or newspaper…everything happened as I affirmed and I enjoyed the popularity.
  3. EXPERIMENT 3: Visualise and manifest people – think of someone, imagine their face, think and make it up, not receptivity but third-eye projection. Imagine the clothes they wear, their height, how they behave, walk, speak, visualise the setting where they meet you, what are the exact things they say, word to word. Then share the results. My results have always confirmed that I am making it up, there is noone out there but our imaginary world, illusion, even people around.
  4. EXPERIMENT 4: Visualise money, someone giving you cash or any amount using any method and see it clearly or make affirmations for money or even career success, as if you are getting exactly what you want. In my case I used to make affirmations in my shop that on a particular day, someone would appear and purchase items worth a certain amount, I even affirmed the behavior, the way they will select items, for example, they wll come and purchase someting worth 10,000 rupees in exactly 5 minutes and leave, or that a client will appear with exactly a particular question for vedic astrology (an issue that I would manifest in my mind, for example something about debilitated solar system planet in certain houses leading to certain problems they need solutions to, I would imagine the reading exactly as it will go in future) and I would affirm that the reading will be excellent, they will say ‘you have hit the nail on the head’ and pay me and leave, and will give an excellent feedback. The fact these things manifested made me very uncomfortably aware that even my work, shop and entire success was an illusion, something I was creating purely mentally.
  5. EXPERIMENT 5: Visualise a change in your life such as a new house, a new place or area you want to live in, type of accomodation and see what happens and how soon. In my experience this is a fairly easy change to manifest as it usually comes from the heart when you really want it.
  6. EXPERIMENT 6: Visualise a change in health situation, probably a headache is gone, cold or cough symptoms relieved, a family member who was ill – visualise them improving, feeling happy, playing, dancing, enjoying life, growing up if they are children or pets. This usually works and have attempted this a few times successfully. Those who practice reiki or energy healing merely tap into this because they are relaxing their mind and allowing healing without worries blocking them, which is why sometimes we cannot manifest anything at all, due to our fears and concerns owing to lack of relaxation.
  7. EXPERIMENT 7: Visualise a thoughtform, maybe a symbol or a geometric construct and see it clearly with colours you imagine and create mentally. Try to notice if it appears anywhere in your vicinity. I remember the time I was teaching how to use thoughtforms to a student – for example a blue triangle and to place an intention in it, and we used it for traffic jam to ease out when I offered to drop the student off after a class in my car but was stuck in a jam, soon the vehicle before me moved and next we saw a vehicle with a blue triangle right in front of us.
  8. EXPERIMENT 8: Visualise something changing in the world, maybe a small thing, such as weather change, maybe try to visualise sunshine when it is a very rainy day, fill the sky with the sunlight in your mind, sense the warmth replacing the gray and cold skies and feel it on your skin, then see what happens and how fast it manifests. Have tried this several times. Once when there were floods in Mumbai in 2004 deluge I tried visualizing that all the clouds go away to another country northwards of the earth and away from Mumbai…results were terrifying as there was a hurricane Katrina in northern hemisphere. Therefore be careful what you ask for in weather, for even calamities can manifest that you regret later. Alternatively I had great success calming down storms too, especially feeling sad about the birds and animals affected on trees around as I woke up at night to a thunderstorm and used my third eye to stop it instantly.
  9. EXPERIMENT 9: Visualise a world event, someting that affects all of humanity, political, or economic, or health related. Never really liked this one as it involved reading newspapers and checking facebook newsfeed or google news regularly to see if it manifested. Also needed some emotional energy to manifest it which could sometimes be negative in case any negative news is encountered. This is a tricky one as we can manifest unpleasant events that affects all people around including self. With me I have to be especially careful as I tend to be upset with humanity and more pro-nature (rest of nature as I consider humanity to be arrogant and a perpetrator to earth). Hence I remind myself to read The Goddess Speaks which I wrote as positive affrmations for world peace and earth healing. Yet, I find that unconsciously I have been avoiding this off late, aware that things manifest purely mentally and hence are illusion, including world events.
  10. EXPERIMENT 10: This is unusual, and depends on your level of belief. Strongly visualise something very strange, impossible even, something that you cannot explain with logic or science, or rational mind. For example make a person appear and make them do something quite unusual, a menemonic to help you remember this happened out of your mind – to confirm and remind you that you are dreaming. This is tricky because if you share it with someone they might say you are hallucinating or delusional or crazy. For example I visualised a lady wearing a certain outfit and lipstick will walk through a tall hedge as if it were short grass, but obviously it may be hard to believe.
  11. EXPERIMENT 11: Visualise a dream, something that is meant to be unconscious, someting that ‘is given to you’ appears on its own, but this time you are creating it, very consciously. It helps if you are lucid in your dreaming which will come about if you note each and every small dream immediately and meditate for an hour or so daily. In my case I would visualise a specific person, wearing let us say a blue shirt, with a certain accent, saying particular words, perhaps someone supernatural, like an angel or a God or magical being, even a demon, or thoughtform if you dare to, aliens perhaps?
  12. EXPERIMENT 12: Visualise having some phenomenal psychic powers. For example I encoded or programmed that I will receive accurate forecasting or oracle about everything to happen that I need to be aware of. This led to mediumhip and contact with spirit guides who are very good at premonition, so much so that I hear messages all the time and they are always accurate. Of course you can also command it stops if it is too frequent and you want to detach. What I was unable to manifest was Telekinesis, moving objects with my mind without a physical apparent cause. In my case I tried it with telekinesis device using a screw kept loosely upside down on table with aluminium foil but unfortunately athough the foil moved and spun, I did not believe it was myself causing it, and thought it could be slight currents in the wind. The moment I turned around, the entire metal screw slid around the table on its own as if it was a spirit doing it someone like a body double in my vicinity, except invisible. I must admit I have not entirely been efficient in third eye telekinesis experiments but in the past with other ESP experiments such as Zener card trials I found amazing results with a whole group of students if there is an affirmation and effort.

Usually these things happen after prolonged meditation, but, I am hoping that is so because of my resistance to the awakening and being too busy in other things to fully focus on the paranormal or psychic powers within, and not because meditation for long hours is necessary. Infact things can also happen quite spontaneously, a thought can manifest instantly without prolonged meditation.

We think these things are ‘supernatural’ and ‘special powers’ thus we are unable to break the rules of the world, we love the simplicity around us, the people, the comfort of friendships, relationships, four walls of a house to feel safe in, grounding with physical nature or earth, food and the feeling of nourishment and logical explanation that it is helping us move around in the world, and we manifested a government to take care of roads and public transport, hence a taxation system, financial system, judicial system and what have you. Which brings me to the next experiment – manifest something with the government authorities, imagine someone calling you, or an official meeting you and doing something. For example I wrote a letter to a ministry and visualised them responding with a letter, imagining the worlds they will write in a response, and it was exactly as I had thought, the same sentences.

The issue here is that we complain about governments, law, systems, but what if they were also illusion, people and systems designed by the mind, which in my case is not an expert in law or finance…or anything actually… and has manifested a government that is not perfect, and then comes the feeling of injustice. When we read new about crimes, about conspiracies, about control of public funds, pedophile rings at highet levels, strange and terrible things like ‘leg of lamb’ sold at the neighborhood supermarket stores, it really does put me off to live in such a reality. I cannot fathom why this mind would manifest or conceive this world – is there something else to it, because if the universe is withn why would it be so horrid when it comes to human laws and behavior?

The fact is everything round us, is a projection of our past thoughts, our past energy, our past self or unconsciousness. As we gain consciousness, these will be replaced with what we want instead of what we ‘no longer’ do or at least that is what should happen. But are we even clear about what we want? Or do we even care? Is our energy more and more focused on the temporary relationships and family life, fears around losing our loved one, attachments that are emotional and heart-based. For instance I for sure know I manifested my son, his face, his behavior, his effervescence and joy, I had visualised he will only get cuter with every year as he grows and it is so and he is who takes up most of my time on earth (or wherever I am).

How about if nothing was true at all, if all this free will, all this manifestation was merely my mind making things up?

The illusion of free will.

Which brings me to the point – why is it that we have manifested a corrupt or negative world, one with evil, for instance animal abuse, slaughter, the most apparent evil in the world, taking someone’s life itself or sexual abuse of trillions of animals bred to be bled? Could it be that we are witnessing this for a reason, to remember something? Why are we unable to end it. So I made a petition and wanted to change laws around this system, to end animal farming in late 2018 to early 2019. I decided to be a strict vegan and not merely a health based plant eater, flexible at times with the odd dairy in cakes or cholocates, flexible especially with others as I cooked at home for them. I manifested a family situation change because while I was tolerating my own control and abuse, compromising my own self-worth and dignity, in my closest of all relationships, this time it was someone else’s life I was standing up for.

No longer will I be alright with injustices anymore (thanks to Jaocquin Phoneix of Earthlings who validated my insights that I was avoiding facing since 2014 when I first decided to go plant based for Ethical reasons and thought if I need to ascend to a planet on star system Vega which is my home away from the illusory earth, maybe a spaceship Phoenix). On receiving many articles online about Ashtar and ascended masters team all of a sudden began an ascension series of experiences and I wondered if I manifested these dreams and psychic awakenings too.

But the most important personal change was that I decided to be unhappy with the way I was taught to accept other people’s ‘personal choices’ around food. I was taught to accept diversity, vegetarians, non-vegetarians alike, as humans – as friends, as family members – those like my parents, my close relatives, my past self who was trained or programmed to believe that animals and plants both have life and that it is alright to consume animals too. I have no idea why I was born into such a family and such a world where we are taught to be alright with animals being killed for food, and how I started believing it was so, but no longer would I tolerate this, we need to ‘tell the truth’ and ‘demand a change’ because of the way we are destroying the planet, with global warming. Soon after the intention I heard of ‘extinction’ rebellions for climate and including one for animals, marching down the streets of London were thousands of people asking for laws to change and animal farming to end. I visualised this change would take place on its own, with people manifesting this. That I may not even be required in this world, this illusion.

However you think of the experiments above – the truth remains that everything in life in the world, in dreams, on relationships, is maya – an illusion. A projection of mental and emotional energy manifesting through intentions, through this will power. When we feel it strongly we project it into existence. Clearly nothing is real.

So why are we still here, why is the world still here? Why can we not simply ascend? Why not leave illusion behind permanently and discover the real, the true self, why not go home?

One explanation I could think of is – Karma – while we think that it is ok to exploit, abuse and use animals – truth is we are in a simulation ourselves – and somewhere on some spaceship, multidimensionally we are the animals that aliens are experimenting upon while plugging us into this virtual reality – and we so deserve this. While we think we are living on earth we are not here at all. that would explain why we have a world with all this evil, injustices, cruelty and negativity, as if there to remind us and teach us a lesson, or me more lessons. Is that the truth, or is it again another level of simulation that my mind is manifesting by thinking so?

Another explanation that many people use is one of the Matrix, we are in an artificial reality, designed by AI, deliberately made negative so that we are kept engaged in the world process, and keep trying to save the world – just like Neo in the Matrix, the savior, but alas it was also another trick of the architect and the Oracle and he was merely a version of Neo that was inbuilt into the system, an anomaly that led to a rebooting or reloading of the entire Matrix program system again and again. While we are trying to heal the world and make it a better place, are we merely being tricked to stretching the dreamword a bit more by our active engagement in to the drama of the world. Infact in a dream I saw that I said, we have deliberately been implanted with ‘false memories’ of being taught how to consume animal products and accept killing as normal, but this is not how it is meant to be. People around me who we think or believe in killing may be all programs, keeping my mind all tied up in this illusion of conflict and evil or are they my past self projecting outside of me but actually internally if this was a dreamworld.

A third perhaps more rational or psychological explanation is something like Inception, that it is all different levels of dreaming, from more conscious lucid dreaming of outer reality world we are in currently, to deeper more subconscious realities we descend into at night time. But what if this was night and not day, and what if we were asleep when we in-fact think we are awake. When the dream starts falling apart, as designed by the architect team member, there are unusual things that happen, terrorism, violence, genocide, war, flooding, calamities, and a sound that leads to a reminder – that one must prepare to wake up. Simply it is the mind giving us a message we have programed into our dreamworld ourselves, one of awakening, because the dream is falling apart. Our ascension symptoms might be leading upto something afterall – the dream of this life in this world metamorphosising into something, our dreambody, this body metamorphosising into something, waking up because it is simply – unusual, unnatural or quite evidently a dream.

I do not know why, but I did find a spinner, exactly like the movie’s spinning top when suddenly it popped up on my computer – a menemonic to order online. But then I was told, the tarot is my mnemonic or totem, one I carry all the time, a reminder, even as the spinner sits among my tarot decks, untouched while I play with my son.

Ten Steps to Awaken From the Matrix

The world has been divided through religion, caste, race, gender norms, sexuality and other complex factors for far too long. However in reality we observe only two types of people, awakening or unconscious. So what exactly is awakening and how can we gain consciousness regardless of the many confusions witnessed around us?

  1. Know You Are Dreaming: We all sleep and dream, yet majority of people do not realize that the world we are living in is also a dreamworld, where our mind is generating our reality.  When our eyes are open we might be actually asleep,  much like a dream in which we also see so many things and people around ourselves. Most people who are asleep in their daily ‘waking life’ find it extremely hard to believe that their life is also a dream. They think that all things that they can see, touch, feel, smell, taste or hear in their daily life are far more real than what the very same things they see in their dreams. This is our greatest mistake. awake-or-asleep
  2. Note and Pay Attention to Your Dreams: Begin your awakening by truly paying attention to what is happening when you go to bed at night. Note down your dreams so that you make a habit of paying attention to them and remembering them. After a daily practice of keeping a dream journal, you will begin to see your dreams much more clearly and yourself notice how ‘real’ or lucid your dreams can actually be. Slowly you will begin to note how your thoughts including subconscious mind can generate your dreams, and you will begin to be awake in your dreams so that you can move about, fly, astral travel or do whatever you like or even change it at your will. It is within these dreams, which you may have ignored so far, that you will learn more about your subconscious mind and how it can project various realities.redblue
  3. Meditate: We do not ‘wake up’ just because we die. We may just go from dream to dream, wandering in illusions. Awakening is about gaining consciousness and meditation is the key. Not only when you sleep at night, but also when you are going about your life throughout the day, you can find some time to sit quietly and close your eyes. By focusing on your inner world, you can literally ‘hear’ your unconscious self-talk or see what is going on in your mind. What you can observe you can also control. By focusing on your third eye through your breath in meditation, and observing inner silence, you can gain power over your mind. Self-defeating or harmful thoughts can be overcome and replaced by positive affirmations that can be quite magical. You can even learn to astral travel and to generate dreams at your will with enough practice and slowly you start seeing how you can influence your everyday reality too. Once you get startling proof that you mind is literally projecting reality into your life, you will have no shred of doubt left. dreamworld
  4. Stay Non-Attached to Senses: We all get a lot of stimuli or information flowing into our mind through our senses. If you have been alert in your dreams and gained lucidity to some extent you would notice that in our dreaming we can be affected by all our senses. Just like we get entangled and involved with all our senses in our dreams, we also remain entangled and involved in our daily life in a constant pursuit of flavor, enjoyment, entertainment and pleasure. Dazed and enticed by our senses we buy into the illusion all around us everyday and imagine that we are in a very ‘real’ world. In contrast when we gain power over our senses, we stop chasing sensory pleasures all the time and become more meditative instead. For instance saying no to drugs, quitting smoking, reducing dependence on sex and alcohol, or going vegan can be the first steps in gaining self-control and consciousness for most people who have been addicted to their senses. The rest remain unconscious and a slave to their senses or ‘maya’.Cypher Matrix Quote
  5. Question Reality: The ‘law of attraction’ says that we manifest things or people into our life based on our energy vibrations such as thoughts or emotional state. Science too confirms that we are living in an illusory ‘simulation’ and that matter is in-fact made up of energy. Yet, the moment we learn the ‘law of attraction’ we use the ‘secret’ to make more money, have more pleasurable relationships, or merely enjoy life, without realizing that it is merely an illusion. Or, if we are skeptical and more scientific instead we keep ‘peeling the layers’ of the reality onion seeking more and and more sub-atomic particles within particles of ‘matter’ which is actually energetic in nature. What we really need to do is look within ourselves too and not just keep researching the outer world so that we can see where this simulation is coming from. We need more scientific spirituality or spiritual science where we research into our mind and reality connection.real
  6. Stay Away From Dogma: While we all respect religions and seek peace, we also need to not subscribe to dogmatic faith that requires some kind of ‘belief system’ to be imposed from the outside. We need to be aware that regardless of faith, or independent of which deity you pray to or whether you go to Church, Temples, Mosques, or any other religious place, prayers can be at times answered in amazing ways. Similarly, if you are an atheist you can still manifest something through simply believing in yourself or by holding a strong intention. Therefore any religious group or institution that tells you that only their belief or deity is true or powerful is clearly mistaken. Even worse would be those who frighten people with images of a ‘devil’ or ‘evil spirits’ influencing your life if you do not bow to ‘their God’. Such dogmas keep people bound to superstitious beliefs that prevent a real search for truth by looking inwards and witnessing how you are creating your life.matrix
  7. Forgive and Detach From Your Story:  Imagine a virtual reality show or movie where you could go into the game and experience it with all your sensations along with your emotions, as if you are the character. This is exactly what is happening in our life too which is very much like a dream unfolding through our senses and generated by mental perceptions. However bound with all our emotions and dramas we keep prolonging our illusion and remain asleep. Just like while dreaming we need to wake up by detaching from the story in our dream, similarly we can also detach from our story in our ‘waking life’. Everything that has happened all the way up till the present moment has been nothing more than a dream. Regardless of all the pain, suffering, deaths, heartbreaks and in-spite of all the achievements, success, friendships, relationships, we all have been in-fact only dreaming. Forgiving every person including and especially yourself is the most important part of awakening. free-your-mind-matrix
  8. Know Your Power Over the System: Something in us, consciously or unconsciously has been generating our ‘story’, and if we really trace our soul back all the way to the source, we will find how we have generated the very same systems of political, economical and religious control that we have been fighting against. We will see how we have been very unconscious since our birth or past lives, and have contributed unconsciously to the development of all the systems we have place all around us in this world and have also generated all our victim states when being abused or suffering through any timeline within the matrix. The important thing is to stop hurting and reacting to these unconscious energies from our past or from around us but to gain power over them and be the change we wish to see in our world.wont-dodge-bullets
  9. Know that We Are One: The biggest illusion in this multi-dimensional reality show is the appearance that we are all different people with different souls. In truth we all have the same one soul deep within ourselves which we can also call ‘God’, Ultimate Consciousness’, ‘Supreme Being’, ‘Creator’ or ‘Source’. We can all gain self-realization by reaching this level of Truth or Self within us which is the same essence carried within all conscious beings. Anyone who gains consciousness awakens to this truth from within instead of being fooled by the outward display of all the characters and personalities around. When we are trying to heal others, or awaken others, what we really need to do is connect with the higher self where we all are One instead of trying too hard to change others all around us who are seem to be part of the unconscious matrix and not really open to change all the time.matrix-quote-people-are-not-ready-to-be-unplugged
  10. Self Mastery: Waking up from a dream can take a longer or shorter time based on how soon we gain awareness that we are in a dream, become more lucid and ultimately detach from the story with all our senses and emotions. Similarly awakening in this life is accelerated by realizing that we are in illusion, seeing for ourselves how we are generating the illusion across every level of our own ‘matrix’ or mind, and detaching from our story or ‘maya’ through non-attachment. When we are no longer emotionally disturbed by the past, worried about the future, or entangled sensually in the present, we have gained some sort of mastery over our own self, and can certainly prepare for awakening and ascension. spoon1.gif

Five Great Movies About Mastering Our Dreams and Realities

‘You are in a dreamworld Neo…’, says Morpheus in the Matrix! …

And many of us could relate with what he said. The world around is is just about as real as a dream…just like ancient Vedic philosophy would tell us. And, we are totally in-charge of our experiences whether in our dreams, waking life, or after-life.

Here are some fantastic and perhaps lesser known movies that help us question the reality of the ‘real world’:-

Dreamscape: dreamscape

In this 1984 film Dennis Quaid plays a psychic who is asked to enter the dreams of people who suffer from nightmares with the aim of helping them work through their fears. It is the last scene that hints out at the fact that dreams and reality might have started to overlap. What is wonderful about this film is the concept of’dreamwalking’ into the inner world of others for their healing… definitely a good skill to have.

What Dreams May Come:

What_Dreams_May_Come.jpg

In this 1998 film Robin Williams learns with the help of a spirit guide, how to master life after death and also manages to guide the soul of his dead wife after her suicide to reunite them both with their kids in afterlife before they decide to reincarnate. This is one of the few movies that has focused almost entirely on life between lives and touched upon the powers we have as spirits in helping and guiding each other and in choosing our existences in future. Beautiful special effects won this movie an Academy Award.

The Lathe of Heaven:

latheofheaven

This 1980 film Bruce Davidson plays a man whose dreams change reality each time he dreams. Troubled by this phenomena he seeks the intervention of a psychiatrist after drugs fail to help him escape. The psychiatrist sees for himself how the man can powerfully change the world through his dreams and tries using him to deal with all the problems of the world one by one while all that the dreamer wants is to simply stop dreaming. His final realization is the highlight of the film that comes as a brilliant surprise. Definitely worth watching a couple of times.

The Nines

the-nines-ryan-reynolds

In this 2007 film Ryan Reynolds plays out three alternate lives only to discover that he is a ‘nine’. I would leave you to watch the film and figure out what this means but all I can say is that on a scale of one to ten, this film could probably score a nine on coming close to the truth about our existences. John August, the writer and director gets most of the credit for this movie. Enjoy it on a rainy day when you want to watch something new and different.

41

Made and published by Glenn Triggs and available free on YouTube, 41 (a 2102 movie) is  where the central character time travels from a certain point to time to the past, again and again till he discovers the secret of how to change the course of events for the best possible outcome. Although more of science fiction than spirituality it does help the viewer expand our consciousness about the illusory nature of time and the parallel existences of past, present and futures as well as the existences of several alternate versions of ourselves.

Hope you have fun watching and discussing these five with yourself and others soon.
