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.

  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

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

So now that you know what the Matrix is and what role you have been unconsciously or consciously fulfilling, what is your choice? Do you want to be free of the conditioned mind and discover who you really are? And what will you do when you discover your true self?

Seven Reasons for Being More Spiritual

On one hand we have seen people who are purely materialistic and for whom the physical world observed through the five outer senses is all there is. Yet, on the other hand we have spiritualists who believe that the outer perceivable world is mere illusion while the truth is hidden within. In this internet driven corporate world, why should you try learning and practicing spirituality at all, when success is measured through the size of your material achievements? Well, it turns out that those who are purely material are prone to losing their health, wealth, happiness and success all too easily, while those who are spiritual seem to have blissful lives even with a modest lifestyle.

Here are 7 powerful ways that spirituality can transform our lives forever…in a way that materialism never can:

  1. PROTECTING FROM THE NEGATIVE: At the base of it we all have to deal with our fears that manifest in the form of various negative situations and experiences around us. Spirituality teaches us that everything that happens on the outside has an inner cause,even those things that seem to be happening to us through others. Therefore if anything negative has been observed anywhere in our life, the source is most likely to be an inner fear that caused it. Release that fear and replace it with trust…that’s the way to peace. Being spiritual helps us by transforming our fears into love because we know that everything has its source deep within us. This way no matter how much the negativity that surround us we know that if we find peace within we shall be  just fine.
  2. ATTRACT POSITIVE EXPERIENCES: Just as we know that fears caused our sorrows, we know that positive thoughts and emotions will bring us positive experiences with equal certainty. Spiritual secrets can surely help bring us more abundance, real love, lasting peace, joy and success in anything that is positive for our whole self. The moment we shift our focus to inner peace and start feeling better it begins to create all good things that our soul truly desires us to have. We might find that we are effortlessly attracting a better quality of friends, relationships, opportunities and situations than ever before and we accept them with open arms.
  3. PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT: It is ignorance that makes us feel vulnerable, pitiable, sad, hurt or victimized. A spiritually aware and enlightened soul knows that every moment there is infinite energy within at all times. The awareness of what lies within us expands our inner power to the extent that we can help ourselves anytime. Whether it is our physical or monetary health, career or personal goals, there is less of dependency on others and more self-reliance. We know that an inner switch can change everything for the better and that we can manifest our life with our own choices at any point of time as we keep brimming with limitless positive energy.
  4. DEEPER HEALING: Spiritual energy connects our mind, body and soul together seamlessly as we know that everything is ultimately woven with threads of spiritual energy alone. Since this positive energy is the source of all there is its enhanced flow can heal everything at every level of our being. The moment we shift our focus to the spiritual through meditative state, an enhanced flow of spiritual energy is triggered and staying in this peaceful radiant state continues healing us from inside out. From physical to social life, from home to all of earth, spiritual healing helps everything and everyone in a tremendous way.
  5. AWARENESS: Learning the truth and sharing the truth that we have learnt help us in expanding our consciousness and that of the universe. The remarkable fact is that as our consciousness expands it helps in expanding the consciousness of everything around us too. This consciousness when awakened is the power that transforms the entire world for the better. Whether through books or discourses, workshops or seminars, we know that amazingly wise teachers and masters will find us eventually and we will be equally enlightened provided we follow and practice what we have learnt with total dedication.
  6. SIDDHIS: Once we attain a higher state of consciousness and learn more about who we are, it increases our magickal and psychic powers in several ways. Through spiritual practice and inner focus we awaken our natural yet latent superpowers that are a necessary part of our spiritual awakening. We not only realize but actualize our multi-dimensional, infinite nature. In time we know that there is absolutely nothing that can be called impossible because we become masters of the illusion of life, rising above all of it. We are no longer limited by anything around us and ready for the next level of awakening.
  7. MOKSHA: The highest possible reason for being spiritual is that it sets you free from all illusion. Contrary to what you might have been told before, relinquishing desire may not lead to liberation but to deeper blockage or repression. The right way to be liberated from all desires is to find a deeper contentment. At this greater level of spiritual progress there is little else that you would seek. Imagine that you could have just about anything in the world right now…yet you feel that you have everything already…in-fact in a very real way, you know that you already ARE everything. With nothing more to want or seek, nothing left to crave for, you are ready to be permanently liberated from the illusory nature of the world process and be one with your ultimate truth.
