Father-Mother God

by Owen K Waters

The concept of God as a Father-Mother principle, not just a Father God, is hardly new. For example, the Christian Science movement, founded in 1879, is one which holds the Father-Mother God principle as central to its teachings.

They regard the masculine qualities of God, such as strength, constancy and protection to be related to the Father aspect of God, while the feminine qualities, such as gentleness, compassion and nurturing to be related to the Mother aspect of God. They do not see God as two ‘people’ – a male entity and a female entity – but rather as an integrated, all-pervasive presence possessing both aspects of consciousness in equal balance.

If we look at the nature of the original consciousness which is behind all things, we can better understand the concept of an integrated Father-Mother God. God is not a person. God is an everywhere-present, all-knowing intelligence which created and maintains the universe. Behind even this creative presence, is the ultimate, original, unchanging state of consciousness, that of Infinite Being.

Infinite Being is a state of perfect beingness which contains all potential. As such, it fundamentally does not “do,” it just is. It is perfection, and therefore unchanging. However, at some point, Infinite Being decided to ‘become,’ rather than just ‘be.’ It decided to manifest its potential, and then to act out every part of that potential.

Once Infinite Being had made the decision to create the universe, it achieved the Creation through its only available tool – that of consciousness. Infinite Being divided its consciousness into two complementary aspects. In one direction, it focused intent. In another direction, it focused feeling. Then, it applied motion so that the two facets of itself – intent and feeling – could interact with each other as intertwined waves of consciousness in motion. In this way, Infinite Being extended itself from just being, into a state of action and creation.

The dividing of the ‘waters’ of original consciousness into two, complementary aspects created the aspect of intent and the aspect of feeling. These two principles of consciousness interact together in perfect, equal balance. Were they not perfectly balanced, the universe would cease to exist!

People traditionally find comfort in thinking of God as a parent-like presence. The two aspects of consciousness are not, literally, terms relating to gender. However, you could choose to think of the intent aspect as the Creator part and the one which seems more father-like. You could also choose to think of the feeling aspect as the Preserver of all of creation and as the one which seems more mother-like. However, these are just images to help us identify, from a human perspective, with the vastness of the consciousness of God.

God maintains the universe through a perfect balance of the complementary aspects of its consciousness. In the light of this, if people choose to think of God in parental terms, then the word God today has to mean ‘Father-Mother God’ and not just ‘God the Father.’ Remember that without God the Father’s other half, the universe would cease to exist!

Today, the concept of Father-Mother God has become a very timely one. As we progress through The Shift to heart-centered consciousness, the concept of patriarchy is steadily fading away into history. Father God, as a male persona, is part of the Old Reality thinking. The expanded concept of Father-Mother God is inbuilt into the new awareness.

We are entering a New Reality where all people are honored equally, regardless of race, creed, color, personal preferences and, especially, gender. Heart-centered consciousness means unconditional love and acceptance of all people in their infinite diversity. We exist on this earth as the eyes and ears of Infinite Being as it seeks to experience itself through the variety of every possible viewpoint. Such diversity is integral to our purpose in existence.

Your purpose in life includes the development of your own potential so that you can become the most unique ‘you’ possible. Today’s emerging heart-centered consciousness means that people will support, rather than compete against, the efforts of other people.

As New Reality consciousness expands, human potential will flower in creative ways never before imagined possible. You can think of God as a balance of Father-Mother God consciousness or simply go beyond that to think of Infinite Being as the ultimate state of unchanging perfection. Either way, remember that the conscious awareness of the presence of God is a mere thought away.

It is your concept of the God presence within which will feed the flame of your creativity and help bring your unique potential into full and joyful manifestation.

The Death of Metaphysics

by Owen K Waters

Can something as profound as metaphysics reach a point where it will cease to exist?

To answer that, you have to understand the definition of the word metaphysics. It means ‘beyond physics,’ i.e. ‘beyond the study of the phenomena of nature.’

Saying that metaphysics is beyond the study of nature suggests something supernatural. However, as nothing can exist outside of the Creation, then nothing is beyond being natural. Supernatural, therefore, is a word that contradicts itself.

‘Supernatural’ is an oxymoron, just like ‘an exact estimate,’ ‘clean dirt,’ ‘fresh frozen,’ and ‘a definite maybe.’ How can anything in Creation be beyond the natural? More likely, it is something beyond the understanding of physicists because it is too subtle to be included in today’s physics.

Let’s drop the use of the word supernatural. ‘Supernatural’ implies that some things are permanently beyond our understanding and, in the New Reality, that attitude just doesn’t make it any more. If something exists, it can be understood. The first step is to admit that it does exist.

For example, there is overwhelming evidence to support the idea that the human aura exists. The human aura is an envelope of etheric energy surrounding the physical body. While only clairvoyants can currently see the human aura, what will happen when a device is invented which allows the etheric energy of the aura to be directly detected and displayed on a physical monitor screen? One thing that will happen, is a boost in our ability to diagnose health conditions before they can physically manifest and cause real damage.

We do have aura cameras today that interpret electrical signals in the hands and make an estimate of what the aura should look like, but these do not read the etheric energy of the aura directly. Also, we have Kirlian cameras, but they display an electrical reaction to etheric energy, not the etheric energy itself. What we need is technology that can see etheric energy directly and display that on video. Another application of such technology will be clear contact with the spirits of departed loved ones.

The study of etheric energy is in its infancy today. Etheric energy is life energy, an energy more subtle than electromagnetic energy. While electromagnetic energy deals directly with the physical world, etheric energy is pre-physical. Clairvoyants can see it, and people in the spirit world can see it, as etheric light. Most physical humans do not see it at the present time, although we do have the potential ability to do so by developing our in-built, subtle senses and, as we progress through The Shift, people will find this ability unfolding naturally.

Research into etheric energy today is in its infancy. Remember that electrical energy, in the early 1800s, was still a mere curiosity of scientific pioneers. Electricity, it was said, could be felt from an electric eel, it could be seen in the sky as lightning, and observed in biology as the force which moves muscles. To the average person at the time, such thoughts were considered to be some kind of joke.

When the Leyden jar, a device for storing a small charge of static electricity, was invented, the door was opened to more research into electricity. Then, with Volta’s invention of the chemical battery and its ability to produce a controlled current, laboratory experiments became much easier to perform.

It wasn’t long before there were instruments to measure voltage, current and resistance. Then, Faraday’s inventions of the electric motor and the electric generator opened the way for electricity becoming the new motive power in the Industrial Revolution, largely replacing steam as a working fluid.

Today’s challenges to physics, and metaphysics, are etheric energy and consciousness. The first step in advancing consciousness research is to abandon the currently popular, yet naive, idea that the mind is a result of electrical signals in the brain when the opposite is true. The nonphysical mind initiates physical brain signals.

Etheric energy research will yield machines which diagnose and heal automatically. It will also produce, among countless other benefits, the means to affect and control the weather. Rain dances may look like superstition but they are actually conscious attempts to alter the balance of etheric energy in the vicinity and that automatically affects the weather conditions. Etheric energy devices can also achieve that same effect.

Rain-making, etheric energy devices have already succeeded in some pioneering experiments by Trevor Constable. When he served on merchant marine ships, he would secure his experimental, etheric energy projector tubes to the deck of the ship. The passage of the ship through water continuously recharged the ship with etheric energy. His projector tubes directed some of that energy towards the sky ahead of the ship. Within 15 minutes rain would appear – on a fine day, around the ship, and nowhere else!

The study of consciousness will also expand physics, which is just beginning to recognize the role of consciousness in subatomic behavior. Subatomic particles are displaying signs of consciousness, and this is happening under controlled laboratory conditions. This is leading to the realization that the universe, and everything in it, must be conscious.

In other words, the universe must really be one big, fully aware, inter-connected, Infinite Being.

The boundaries between physics and metaphysics will blur as the study of consciousness becomes their common ground. Physics will find that it has to expand and become something more all-encompassing than it has been to date. The big turning point will occur when physics grows to include a philosophy of Creational consciousness. When it adopts the habit of asking the question, “How did the Creator’s consciousness achieve that?”, then it will be on the fast track to its greatest discoveries ever.

Physics, the study of nature, will grow to include everything in nature. When that day comes, there will be no metaphysics because metaphysics will have become a part of the new, expanded physics.

The unknown will have become the known, and our appreciation of the works of the Creator will have grown along with this expanded knowledge.

Quantum Entanglement

by Owen K Waters

The word “quantum” has an almost magical effect. It makes people’s eyes glaze over as if they’ve just entered a deep trance! I know… it always did that to me too.

It’s like the theory of Relativity, which says that time and space can expand or contract and, all of a sudden, there goes that glazed look in my eyes again. The only sense I could make out of it was that Relativity must be the reason that time slows down and the room seems to get smaller when my relatives come to visit!

So, what are quantum energies all about? They are subtle energies, so you might be able to feel them even if you can’t see them. You might even say that even electricity is a subtle energy. After all, you can’t see electricity itself, only its effects, like when a lightning flash lights up some particles of air.

Gravity, being an attractive force, must be a subtle form of magnetism. Compared to dense physical electromagnetism, gravity is a subtle force. But, wow, wouldn’t space travel get a whole lot easier if we could understand that little mystery of the universe?

The quantum world is a subtle, almost pre-physical world. Things pop out of the energetic quantum soup and manifest in solid physical reality. The quantum world is one where all things are possible, all paths can be taken. It is one where the best path of action can be carefully weighed and considered before physical manifestation occurs. Then, the best path becomes the one that is finally chosen.

Then there’s the mysterious phenomenon of quantum entanglement – the ability of tiny particles of energy to communicate with each other. For example, if two photons collide they seem to form a relationship. Now, they know each other and stay in touch. When one goes off on a long journey and finally hits a barrier, the other one reacts to the collision. Magic, and even stranger…

Here’s what Einstein called the “spooky” part. The two particles communicate about the collision faster than the speed of light. Back in Einstein’s day, that was supposed to be a no-no because nothing should be able to travel faster than the speed of light. Besides, how can a photon send a signal, like a radio transmission, to its partner? It IS a particle; it doesn’t have any extra spare particles that it can send off to convey the news to its partner. So, the mystery thickens.

Unless, of course, information can travel at the speed of thought.

The speed of what? Thought, as in mental energy projected through space to a destination. And, because it is not physical electromagnetic energy, it can skip right past that speed of light limitation and travel millions of times faster than light speed.

Let’s face it, when you think of a friend and the phone rings and it’s them, that thought did not travel to you as a radio signal or any other physical energy. It was mental energy, traveling to you at the speed of thought, just like the two friendly photons who know each other and can communicate across vast distances.

Using mental energy to explain quantum entanglement is a more elegant option than the “everything is one in the quantum world” theory that is currently circulating. Yes, everything is, underneath all appearances, really of one source but, in the physical world where every object appears to be a separate item, that doesn’t help us a whole lot. Even in the more subtle world of quantum existence, everything is separate from everything else, even if communication between the parts is more easily available.

The reality is that people (and particles of energy) can and do mentally communicate with each other, but they do so selectively. When you pick up a thought that your friend is thinking about you, that is selective communication. It is targeted communication using mental energy which travels from your friend to you and it travels at the speed of thought in free space.

It is time to explore and become familiar with energies which are more subtle than physical electromagnetic energies. The quantum world awaits our investigations.

Two hundred years ago, electricity was still an oddity – something to do with lightning and electric eels. Some even had the audacity to suggest that there was an electric energy and that this energy was a common factor in the two phenomena and that it needed to be better understood.

Today, faster-than-light communication is still an oddity – something to do with quantum entanglement and knowing that the phone is about to ring. Some even have the audacity to suggest that there is a mental energy and that this energy is a common factor in the two phenomena and that it needs to be better understood.

Today, lightworkers have become accustomed to the idea that their mental and spiritual light affects the world for the better. Some even have the audacity to realize that they can go further and actively send light out into the mind belt that circles the entire planet.

What a stunning idea! How dare they? Well, the how-to has already been detailed in our Love and Light to the World article.

Love and Light to the World

by Owen K Waters

We live in times of crisis, chaos, and opportunity for growth.

Looked at a different way, you could say we live in interesting times. In fact, the rate of change of many things in the world today has sped up to an almost bewildering degree.

Even the long-established tide of events leading to a carefully controlled new world order has come to a shuddering halt, wondering which way to turn next. There will eventually be a one-world order, but it will be a cooperative utopia based upon freedom of creativity, beauty and inspiration, not a thought-controlled dystopia based on George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four.”

Amid the push and tug of contemporary conflicts, our future is being formed in a way that is functionally more democratic than any political system ever could be. It is being formed in a place in which we all share, yet most people are unaware even of its existence. That place is called the mind belt.

The mind belt is the mental atmosphere of human thought and feeling that surrounds the planet. Our subconscious minds are immersed in it; our superconscious minds are fully aware of it, yet our conscious minds rarely even glimpse its existence. Even so, our minds share in its atmosphere and we feed it with our own thoughts and feelings just like everyone else.

Let’s stop and think for a moment. Is it better to feed the global mind atmosphere with thoughts of anger, fear and desperation, or is it better to offer something more inspirational as our donation to the world’s mind belt?

The question hardly needs answering. As lightworkers we know how to raise our consciousness. While others spend their energy in anger and hate or in scheming to gain more power at the expense of others, we know that the future lies in the next step up the ladder of awareness, which is heart-centered consciousness.

The question is, how do you avoid being pulled down into the mire of human conflict when you want to create a state of harmony for yourself and others?

I’m so glad you asked… 🙂

Here is a technique you can use to create an enlightened space of consciousness for yourself and heal the world at the same time. It is called the Love and Light Technique.

The Love and Light Technique

Several times a day – whenever the need arises – take a pause to refresh your state of consciousness. Any time you get the chance to enter a quiet space within for a few moments without distraction, you can begin by focusing on your breath.

Imagine, with each in-breath, the air you breathe in is filled with brilliant, energy-charged light. Breathe this light energy into the heart area in the center of your chest.

Then, on each out-breath, mentally focus on the words,

“Love and light to the world.”

Breathe in light, then let it out into the world, conditioned with the intention of love and light. Repeat at least twice more… and many more times when you can.

Do your part to fill the world with love and light. It changes your own state of consciousness and it helps heal the world in these desperate times of crisis.

With crisis comes opportunity. The opportunity to become who you really are, to manifest your soul’s true mission in life.

This is what we lightworkers are here to do. To change the world. The Love and Light Technique empowers your ability to help humanity, to usher in the New Reality of love, light, and freedom of the spirit.

The Final Frontier: The Shift From Heart to Soul Consciousness

by Owen K Waters

Star Trek debuted on American television in 1966 in the heyday of the Space Race. The world was fascinated by the new possibilities for humanity that this imaginative series promoted. Its mind-expanding message was announced at the start of each episode.

StarshipEnterprise“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

Today, there is a cosmic shift happening, a rise in the frequency of all consciousness which is affecting everything in our known universe. In terms of our lifetimes, The Shift to higher consciousness is unfolding in a controlled, almost sedate, manner while, in the grander scheme of cosmic time, it is a transformation that is happening in the mere blink of an eye.

A cosmic doorway opened in late 2012 which changed everything. It was an opening up to a new reality of greater possibilities. While, before, the development of heart-centered consciousness had been the peak of spiritual development, suddenly, a whole new vista opened up before our inner vision.

It was a vision of a new frontier. A vision of soul-based consciousness, of awareness relating to the throat chakra, and therefore something beyond even a well-developed heart chakra.

As the new frontier appeared into view, at first, it seemed almost strange. Gone was the emotional warmth so familiar to those who have developed their heart consciousness. In its place was a realm of higher mental thought, a realm of what seemed, at first, to be an almost placid nothingness.

The soul realm which resonates to the throat chakra is one of deep knowingness, of delicate and all-pervasive peace, and a realm of powerful creativity.

The arrival of the early pioneers into the soul realm was a little like explorers landing on a new continent with no map and no idea what discoveries lay beyond their initial landing place.

Questions arose, at first with no easy answer. What is higher mental thought and how does it differ from regular intellectual thought?

What is powerful creativity and how does it differ from the idea that your thoughts create your reality?

How is it that at a soul level you seem to be able to find the answer to virtually anything, even though you knew nothing of the subject?

Why does the soul realm contain a clear sense of connection to all life and the universe? What does it even mean, to be able to be that well-connected? How are you supposed to operate in such a different environment to the one in which we grew up?

These are all questions which arose during the initial investigations into the new frontier of human development, the realm of soul or superconscious awareness. It can even be termed the final frontier because the point of reincarnation – the cycle of physical life, astral life, then soul life to plan yet another adventure into the physical realm – is to gain enough experience to no longer need the cycle of reincarnation.

Mastering the realm of soul consciousness while physically incarnate marks the end of the exercise, the end of a world of separation and drama, and a return to our true nature.

The Joy of a Soul Connection

by Owen K Waters

When we tune into the soul level of consciousness, we find that there is much more to achieving personal happiness than anything related to external events. Real joy comes from within, from an unending source which is divine in origin.

The creative will of the Divine Father aspect of God merged in perfect union with the everlasting love of the Divine Mother aspect of God together fill the universe with total, unadulterated, blissful joy!

The greatest discovery of a person who regularly practices meditation is that, one day, the door will open to this unending supply of blissful joy. On that day, the spiritual seeker knows, beyond all shadow of any doubt, that God lies silently within all things and all consciousness. We are a part of that Divine Oneness, and it is through the joy of soul consciousness that we realize this connection.

Remember that your soul consciousness is your complete, inner consciousness. Your daily, conscious awareness, on the other hand, is focused on the outside world for a purpose. The true purpose is so that we can find our way back to that from which we came, even though we are spiritually “blindfolded,” so to speak. The game of life on Earth is played so that we can experience the rediscovery of that joyous connection to the oneness from which we originally came.

All the happiness in the world pales in comparison with the supreme joy of that inner connection. Soul-inspired joy is lasting happiness. It has no beginning and no end because it is always there, just as God is always there, within each and every one of us.

From Heart to Soul: The Path to Liberation

by Owen K Waters

Freedom! The eternal cry of the soul.

But, what is the soul? And what does freedom entail?

People often equate heart and soul as the same thing while, in reality, they are distinct and different so it helps to make some definitions. After all, a journey to a new land goes well when it starts with a map and it can falter when no such guide is available.

In these days of The Shift, our physical bodies are being gradually risen in frequency. When the time is ripe, we will physically enter fourth-density existence, a higher realm where heart-centered consciousness is the basis of all thought.

In today’s third-density world, ambition for the self often takes precedence over the good of the many. In the emerging heart-centered consciousness, however, one’s effect on others is given every consideration and win-win situations are sought.

As the heart opens further, the door opens to spiritual awakening. Once spirituality enters the perspective, it becomes obvious that the primary objective of the human experience is that of spiritual growth. Even though, at a soul level, each person has a unique set of objectives for their life, the underlying primary purpose of all human life remains the same – that of spiritual growth.

While spiritual awakening occurs in the developed stage of heart-centered awareness, the very next step brings enormous enlightenment through an awakening of contact with the soul level of consciousness.

Your soul is based in the fifth-density, or throat chakra, level of consciousness. It is also present at all times in every other level of your consciousness, including day-to-day physical awareness, but people rarely turn within to pay it much attention during a busy day.

Within your soul are the memories of everyone you have ever been, of every experience you have ever had, and the plan you outlined for this life before it began. Life plans are continually managed at a soul level because they need adjustments to stay on track despite changing circumstances.

A life plan is a map of intended destiny, but it needs constant adaptation and the physical mind is helped through intuitive inspiration from the soul. The more in-touch you are with your inner being, the easier it becomes for you to stay on track with your own life plan.

As you encourage your own soul awareness, you become closer to mastering all that physical life has to offer and closer to completing your own cycle of reincarnation. When you rise above the need for further reincarnation, you move into the soul realms and operate from there with all the freedoms that come with such an unlimited existence.

As a soul, you are then able to move across space and time at will, as easily as the hands of a pianist running up and down a keyboard. You exist in a world of beauty, filled with endless hues of color and inspiring harmonic sounds. Your connection to the divine is open and this fills you with constant joy. Your soul family – hundreds of other souls that you love the most – can be in touch with you at any time you wish. There is no loneliness in such a connected and supporting world.

You learn the deeper mysteries of life without having to pursue any of the needs and duties that now take up so much of your time in the physical world.

The ultimate journey from the heart to the soul can start now with a determination to develop your own soul awareness while in your physical body and to take rapid strides toward the liberation that awaits us all.

It is your progress into higher consciousness while living in a physical body which counts more than anything in the grand scheme of things.

The Lightworker Objective

by Owen K Waters

We are in the midst of a revolution in consciousness which is affecting everyone. Even the most staunch traditionalists in society are being dragged into a vortex of ever-increasing change.

The 80-20 rule states that 80% of any change is typically caused by 20% of the people. The 20% consists of the leading thinkers of the day.

In spiritual matters, these leading-edge people are sometimes called lightworkers or old souls, indicating that they have learned more from their experiences through many incarnations. This advanced learning is stored as wisdom in their souls and they benefit from it consciously through intuitive inner guidance.

Today’s leading-edge thinkers planned ahead to be incarnate at this time in history to help make the essential positive changes in society possible. Social science has now begun to recognize them as a major group in today’s society.

More than 1 in 5 adults have made a shift

A survey in the 1990’s by researchers Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson found that 26 percent of American adults had become what they termed Cultural Creatives. Over fifty million Americans now fit the definition of a newly emerging type of humanity that has made a comprehensive upward shift in worldview, values and way of life. In Europe, a 1997 survey conducted in fifteen European countries showed figures that are very similar to the United States.

So, in a social setting the term ‘leading-edge thinker’ actually applies to more than 20% of the people today. Most of them don’t think of themselves as leading edge, nor do they typically realize how many other people are just like them.

The term ‘lightworker’ is synonymous with ‘spiritual seeker.’ You may or may not think of yourself a lightworker but, if you’re reading this, then you fit the definition perfectly.

The two categories of Cultural Creatives identified by Ray and Anderson fit exactly into the consciousness patterns of lower and upper fourth density. While our physical bodies are currently located in upper third density, our minds are free to soar through heart-centered fourth density and into fifth-density soul consciousness.

When a person moves from the third-density function of developing basic intellect into lower fourth density, their worldview expands and they become more aware of the needs of society. They take into account the local and global effects of their own actions and the actions of others that they support. Environmental, organic and peace-making concerns all come under this frequency band of consciousness.

Then, as outlined in my book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, when people move from lower to upper fourth-density consciousness they pass through the gateway of the heart. This brings them into the first level of spiritual awareness and they become more concerned with inner development and enlightenment.

Leading thinkers are simply people whose normal frequency of consciousness is higher than average. The higher your frequency, the greater your awareness and the greater your ability to lead change by showing others how to resolve the challenges in life.

Freedom from control issues

Two popular issues today are control issues and self-empowerment. People who were raised to feel the need to be in control are now recognizing that this was just another form of fear which has no substance in reality.

Reality comes from your soul’s intuitive guidance because, at a soul level, you see everything that you need to succeed and achieve your purpose in life.

The opposite side of the same coin is the issue of self-empowerment, which is learned by people who break free of control by others and establish their own sense of inner strength and self-dependence.

The issue of self-empowerment is being explored at a societal level as well as an individual level. Every person who begins to realize that they are being deliberately disempowered and turns off the fear-inducing news broadcasts leads the world another step towards liberty from the chains that are designed to bind people to a life of servitude. Thanks to the awakening of lightworkers and leading thinkers, the world is waking up to a whole new standard of personal power and dignity.

Lightworkers often choose to experience major challenges in their lives, not because they need the experience, because they have mastered those challenges in previous incarnations. Instead, lightworkers choose to experience challenges because other people need leading thinkers to show them how to resolve these issues. The more the leading-edge people succeed in resolving these issues, the easier it becomes for the rest to follow.

There is a global mind atmosphere or ‘mind belt’ of human consciousness around the planet. You are subconsciously linked with the mind belt 24 hours a day. It affects you and you affect it. Your contribution to the mental and spiritual health of the world is made every second of every day.

The Lightworker Objective is to be a pioneer in the advancement of consciousness, often adopting certain challenges in order to work through them and, by doing so, creating a pattern in the mind belt to make it easier for others to follow.

If you are currently working through a major life challenge and feel as though you’re going round in circles and getting nowhere, STOP and look for the gift in that challenge.

The gift is that, by loving yourself and others more, you can rise above the challenge and become more of who you really are. Then, the experience changes from one of challenge to one of self-empowerment.

Real strength does not lie anywhere in the outside world. It lies within you. Once you find that inner power, you rise above any limitation and stand as a self-realized leading thinker in a world desperate for spiritual freedom.

The Shift To a Heart-Centered Culture

by Owen K Waters

Since the 1960s, a massive shift in consciousness has brought sweeping changes to society. Wouldn’t we all like to know where this is heading? And, what will tomorrow’s world look like?

The answer emerged as long ago as the 1960s, when a pioneering social scientist called Clare Graves was studying the phases of conscious evolution that society has gone through over the ages.

His studies led him to declare that humankind is preparing for what he called a momentous leap – a mega-change within society which would dwarf all previous changes, because it would open up a whole new tier of evolutionary changes.

In 2005, I published a book called The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness which pointed out that these stages of social evolution agree perfectly with the human chakra system. The key to matching these two systems lay in pointing out the little-known fact that there are two phases to each of the major chakras – a yin and a yang phase.

The yin phase is where people begin to explore the new frequency of consciousness and the expanded worldview which it offers. Then, they graduate to the yang phase, where they master the new chakra and use their new ability to create effective action which changes their world for the better.

For example, society spent much of the 20th century mastering the solar plexus chakra. This resulted in the development of intellect, along with science, technology, and all the wonderful gadgets that we enjoy today.

In the late 20th century, it became more and more obvious that many people were taking the next step and developing heart-centered consciousness. The activation of the heart chakra brings an awareness that the good of the many is an important concern and that cooperation can produce more for everyone than competition ever did.

Heart-centered consciousness brings an expanded worldview where issues like sustainability, human rights, and the freedom to develop your own potential come to the fore. These issues simply don’t exist in the solar plexus world of ambitious intellect. But, in a heart-centered world, they become very much a part of the landscape.

What happens, you might ask, when many more people take this even a step further and move from the yin or introductory phase into the yang phase of the heart chakra? Then, they will master this new, expanded level of consciousness.

The active or yang phase of heart-centered consciousness is where unconditional love begins to flow through the person. At first, it may seem like a mystery where these higher sentiments are coming from, but eventually the awakening person realizes that this is simply the nature of the universe.

If this sounds like a spiritual awakening, that’s because it is. The higher aspect of the heart chakra is the launching pad for an appreciation of the spiritual nature that exists behind all physical manifestation.

Despite what you were taught as a child, this is not a hostile universe. It is benign through and through. The sense of unconditional love that you feel as you settle into heart-centered consciousness is not generated by wishful thinking… you are sensing the energy that forms the very fabric of the universe!

Belligerence is a man-made illusion. It is a divergence from the true nature of the universe. The universe is essentially a loving and supportive place. We just have to channel that feeling of unconditional love into our lives and the world will change beyond recognition.

You can take an active, leading part in The Shift. Develop your heart chakra by knowing that this is the destiny of humanity, that the universe is benign, and that you can tap into its endless supply of unconditional love. Allow yourself to be filled with this infinite supply of love and then become more deeply aware of your own unique role in changing today’s world for the better.

The more you become accustomed to heart-centered awareness, the more you become one of the True Hearts who, right now, at this very moment, are pioneering a New Reality on Planet Earth.

It’s a Great Time to be Alive!

by Owen Waters

The Shift is the mass migration of humanity into the second tier of consciousness. This is where basic values transform into spiritual values, where caring hearts blossom forth into action to help humanity in ways that represent their personal, highest joy.

Millions of pioneering trail-blazers have already made it through The Shift and into the new awareness. Every day, more people follow their example. The New Reality presents a newly emerging type of humanity. This vanguard of unconditional love and renewed hope holds the seeds of a culture where ‘quality of life’ replaces ‘standard of living’ and ‘you-and-me’ cooperation replaces ‘you-versus-me’ competition.

The world is transforming; destiny is calling. Together we are witnessing the dawning of the New Reality as it rises in all of its glory, like the Sun rising at the dawn of a bright, new day.

The New Reality is both heartfelt and heart-powered. It’s about people who care. But people can only awaken to their new, expanded potential when they realize that this potential exists.

Tell your friends that the world is shifting to a new reality and that it is destined to become a truly beautiful place.

To step forward into New Reality consciousness means to experience new vistas of awareness and new levels of creativity. It means following your heart to express your inner joy through making your own meaningful contribution towards the betterment of the world.

It truly is a great time to be alive!
