The Spiritual Age

by Owen K Waters

The Spiritual Age is not just another age to be documented in the pages of history books.

The Spiritual Age is a quantum leap in the evolution of humankind.

meditationladyThere are 12 distinct stages in the evolution of human consciousness. There is a lower tier of six material stages followed by a higher tier of six spiritual stages. Once a person shifts from the material tier into the spiritual tier of evolution, everything changes. The old rules no longer apply, and the ways of the new reality have to be understood and acted upon.

Imagine the radical change that a butterfly goes through in its transformation from an earthbound, limited chrysalis to the joyous freedom of a butterfly. Likewise, a radical transformation occurs when humans move into the spiritual stages of their evolution.

When you enter the realms of spiritual consciousness through the gateway of the heart, you begin to understand that love is more important than money, power, fame, or any of the other entrapments of material life.

Upon moving into the energy of unconditional love, it becomes clear that helping others is the key to success in life. Your viewpoint of life is expanded, just as the butterfly sees more from its position above the ground than it ever saw before while earthbound.

In the New Reality, success will be measured, not by money, but by the amount of joy in your life.

Once a person has gained an understanding of the expanded realm of the heart, they are free to move on to the next stages of spiritual consciousness. Inspiration starts to flow. Inner knowing comes to the fore. Intuition is your daily guide and helper as the wisdom of your soul comes forth to help you succeed at all your efforts in life.

With soul communion comes the blissful joy of spiritual consciousness. With that blissful joy comes inner peace and the lifting away of all the cares of the world. This is reality. This is the state that God always intended for you to discover so that you can live and love in the light of soul consciousness and become a fully-empowered spiritual being.

Your birthright is love, light, and the laughter that springs from spiritual joy.

The above was an extract from Owen K Waters’ new book, Love, Light, Laughter: The New Spirituality.

Thoughtspeed: The Speed of Thought in Free Space

by Owen K Waters

Old ideas give way to new ones. Old barriers, sooner or later, crumble and fade away.

One idea that is crumbling today is the idea that nothing in the universe can go faster than lightspeed. This will be replaced by a recognition that thought travels many thousands of times faster than lightspeed – at the speed of thought in free space, or thoughtspeed.

In the early Star Trek series on television, the mission of the Starship Enterprise was to explore the universe and boldly go where no one has gone before. The Enterprise was able to exceed light speed; quite considerably, it would seem, as it was supposed to have traveled to the edge of the Milky Way galaxy in just a few hours. The cruising speed actually required for such a feat is millions of times lightspeed.

Science fiction is often a medium for possibility thinking. The possibility of humans touring the galaxy and beyond seems eminently reasonable. After all, human potential is, by design, unlimited. There is no way in creation that the universe can be just a set of pretty lights that we never get to explore!

Today, the shift towards recognizing thoughtspeed is just beginning. Faster-than-light phenomena are being observed by today’s physicists when they see the effects of subatomic particles communicating with each other. When a subatomic particle bumps into another one, they become ‘friends’ and carry on communicating with each other. The fact that they then become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate. When something happens to one particle, it lets the other particle know about it and, in pure empathy, it reacts in a like manner.

We know from the work of insightful pioneers like biologist Rupert Sheldrake that telepathy works, but how fast does it work? As thoughts are nonphysical, they certainly are not limited by lightspeed. The question is, how much faster than light is the speed of thought in free space? It is likely thousands of times, and possibly millions of times, faster.

In 2013, scientists in China used the latest in high-speed measuring devices to gain an idea of how fast energy particles communicate with each other across a 15 km (9 mile) distance. The equipment is still not sophisticated enough to produce a definite figure, but they did determine that the speed of particle communication is at least 10,000 times faster than the speed of light.

What’s next? Send particles over really long distances… like to the Moon? Then, when an earthbound particle reacts at thoughtspeed to its friend’s change of state as it reaches the Moon, you’d have a much better idea of the true speed of thought in free space.

In the 1940s, aircraft were limited to the speed of sound until they found a way through the sound barrier and were then able to travel at supersonic speeds. One day, when our spaceship propulsion drives are capable of accelerating ships to lightspeed, we will find a way for them to break the light barrier.

Then, we won’t be just looking up at the night sky any more. We’ll be flying through it, going where no one has gone before.

A Powerful Awakening Exercise

by Owen K Waters

Over the last four Fridays, Dreama Vance has released four progressively powerful practices to everyone on our email list.

The most recent, entitled The Emerald Heart, unveils the mysteries of the heart chakra to those willing to practice this simple yet profound meditation.

As lightworkers, we are here to change the consensus reality.

Now, wouldn’t it be just wonderful if we could just shift into a parallel reality where the world is already filled with love and light. Yes!

But, the reality is that, before such a reality exists, we have to create it through our explorations of higher energies and the higher realms of consciousness. We have to provide the critical mass for such a heaven in earth to exist through our actions.

Let’s take action together now!

Let’s practice those chakra meditations. Let’s face it. What else do we have to do on a fine Sunday when the world is waiting for us to fulfill our missions as lightworkers?

Then, if you have not already done so, join us on the upcoming Higher Energies course because that is where those meditations progress into the real fireworks realm of higher spiritual awakening!


The Emerald Heart

by Dreama Vance

This week did you skip a couple of days in your practice?
If so (and here is the link to review them so far), you discovered:

1) it is easier when you practice every day and
2) how easy it is when you practice!

Who would have thought that we have “spiritual muscle” that develops just like your muscles develop when you play tennis or practice the piano? Your muscles retain memory. So, obviously, does your spirit!

Or, did you, on the other hand, race ahead to take a peek at the heart chakra? If so, then you probably noticed the second foundational element of existence that we will talk about today, which is Light.

All of existence is made of Light. Light and Expansion go hand in hand. You see and experience these foundational elements every time you meditate. You sense them at each chakra. Now that you know them with a name, it is easy to see them in your experience.

Today in our exercise we travel up the spine from the third chakra at the navel to the level of the heart, where we see the beautiful emerald green of the heart chakra.


By now you are familiar with how we explore the chakras. You clear your energy and move into your meditational space, where you become aware you are in a state of peace and tranquility. You become conscious of the present moment and the Abiding Presence. You become conscious that you reside in this Abiding Presence and this Presence resides in you. You are One.

Then we work individually with each chakra, one at a time. We focus and hold our attention on the center. We notice and observe our experience. We allow our experience. We don’t try to create something. We just observe our experience.

Notice the Light and how it radiates in each chakra. Notice how each chakra is luminous.

As we use our intention and allow the flow of energy to increase, notice you feel uplifted, literally raised up.

As we move into the energy of the heart chakra, we immediately feel that expanded state and immediately sense the light. We feel that magnetic quality of the emerald green heart center drawing us to this energy. Notice there is a feeling state with this chakra.

It is the center known for the feeling of love. I also find other words that describe this center. Peace radiates out from this center. Goodwill travels on the waves of expansion. There is a heart wisdom and understanding that opens in this center.

As we allow the flow of energy to increase in this center, we feel this opening wide sensation. We feel this embracing quality as our hearts open, as if we could embrace the entire world. Indeed, that loving quality is right there in the center of our being, right in the center of our heart.

Do join us on the Higher Energies course as we continue with the upper spiritual chakras in our meditations. You will find yourself more and more in alignment with less and less resistance. You will find more and more individual experience coming to you, as you gain ability to perceive more.

Right brain learning, which is what you have been doing with the chakra meditations, is experiential knowledge. Left brain learning is that logical, think-it-through, figure it all out, way of understanding. We are used to that way of learning and the course will have all of that included, also. Owen has an amazing ability to make the complex easy to understand, so I hope you join us!

Many blessings,


P.S. If you have animals in the house, don’t be surprised if they all come and pile on top of you in your meditation as you start including the heart chakra!


The Jewel of Joy

by Dreama Vance

When the information was given to me about how to discover our individual spiritual missions, I felt as if I had been given the Philosopher’s Stone.

How many have worried in angst over their purpose? How many courses can you take to discover your purpose in life? How about discovering your Soul purpose? That discovery sounds even more important and critical.

It is pretty easy to figure out the big purpose in life. After all, saints, sages, and spiritual masters have been teaching the information for eons. We are here for our own spiritual evolution and to assist others on the planet. We are here to awaken from the deep sleep of forgetfulness. This awakening is really a remembering of who we are. We are to develop our skills at remaining conscious and focused on the Source within us. We are to learn and move into higher states of consciousness. This is part of all humanity’s evolution.

It brings glad tidings to the heart when we finally “get it” and begin to consciously work on our own spiritual growth. In doing our own work, we add to the light for the planet.

When I was given the information about individual spiritual missions and how to discover them, I was very excited because I knew it would help so many people move into action. In case you haven’t read my article on Joy (Joy to the World), you will find your own spiritual mission through your joy.

You will discover your individual mission through what brings you incredible joy and what has probably been a thread of great interest from early years in your life. You see, you are important on this planet. You are here to evolve not only in the grand scheme of things, but to give and share your special reason for being here now.

The fact that your individual mission (and there may be more than one) comes from what brings you joy and lights you up inside of your being is so simple and easy to understand once you figure it out! Here is what happens and how it works.

Joy is a state of being that blossoms like a flower within the structural foundation of existence. As we are this energy of existence, this joy is just waiting to be expressed, to bloom within the nature of our being. When you discover your own unique mission through what brings you joy, you can then begin to give this to the world.

This is God in Action!

Do you see how it works? By expressing this innate quality of Joy, we allow the fundamental structures of existence to express itself.

We open flow!

By doing this action, we open the floodgates for the other qualities of existence to come more fully into conscious expression. It is a beautifully designed plan. Joy expresses through you and moves the energy of Source out into Action.

Of course you are here for a reason. You are here with your own very special mission: to bring that hidden jewel of joy out to give to the world, to share with the world. When you do this, the world receives joy. Your light shines and the world receives light. Your love moves into action. Beauty is made manifest and the world receives. The world receives and awakens. Do you see now how it works?

The time is NOW. Don’t delay. Discover your unique jewel of joy today. Figure out a way to share with others and begin. Begin Now. You surely must feel the push/pull of higher frequencies and the need to move into ACTION NOW.

You were born for this time NOW.

Share your gift. Share your gift.

The Third Chakra

by Dreama Vance
December 29, 2017

Although we have only worked with the first two chakras so far, if you have been practicing every day, you are developing your skills.

If you need to catch up, go to The Spiritual Gifts and Spiritual Gifts – Part Two… it is REALLY worth it! After practicing those, you will experience these mind and spirit-expanding effects:

1) You can rapidly clear and purify your energy in thought, word, and deed in preparation for your inner work.

2) You can focus your attention and hold it steady.

3) You can experience a state of peace and tranquility as you move into the present moment.

4) You can recognize the Abiding Presence within and realize you are One with this Source energy.

5) You are learning to broaden your inner senses and to observe and notice your experience.

6) You have learned that this energy of existence responds immediately at the energetic level to your intention and focus, e.g. when you hold the intention to allow increased flow in the chakra, you immediately register this in your experience.

The structural design of existence carries three foundational elements. They are not separate, but we will look at them individually as that allows us to study and understand and experience them. The first foundational element we will look at today. Next week, we will discuss the second element and then we will discuss the third element on the upcoming course, Mastering Higher Energies. We are introducing this structure because you are experiencing it in your meditations. In fact, any time you turn your attention to the Abiding Presence, you experience these elements.

Let’s look at the first we will discuss, which is Expansion.

As you recognize the Presence at the start of your meditation, you feel that sense of spaciousness. When you focus on the base chakra, you experience this openness. As you allow the flow to increase, you experience expansion. When you move up to the second chakra, your experience and perception increases. You can perceive and see more. This is expansion.

Expansion is in every particle of existence. The innate nature of existence is expansive.

The energy of existence molds and shapes itself in response to our thoughts, feelings, and conscious and unconscious beliefs. So can this energy of existence “do” contraction? Absolutely! You feel this when fear, doubt, uncertainty present themselves in your experience. Our experience in life is reflecting those thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

However, the energy of existence cannot lose its very nature. Its very fabric is expansive. It will shape itself and mold itself to reveal what we are asking of it, whether consciously or not, but its underlying nature never changes.

As we consciously align with the innate nature of this energy, we move into flow. Through the practice of the chakra meditation we experience and get to know the original nature of this energy.

Any time you must make a decision, you can tune into your inner Self and “try on” the decision. You will immediately feel either expansion or contraction. Expansion brings you into alignment with your true nature, which is the energy of existence. If you feel contraction, then you are asking existence to play a role, which it willingly does! Our goal, however, is to live allowing our true nature and consequently the true nature of existence to express through and as ourselves.


As we move up the spine to the third chakra, you can notice the sense of spaciousness and openness as you work with each chakra and observe your experience.

The third chakra is along the spine at the level of the navel. It is appropriately called the solar plexus as it appears as a yellow ball just like the sun. This is our thought center and also the center of our personal power.

Follow your meditation techniques, clearing and moving into meditation, then working first with the base chakra, then moving to the second – the emotional center – then the solar plexus.

At each chakra focus your attention on the energy ball. Observe your experience. Feel the pulse of energy. Increase the flow with your intention. Observe and notice your experience. Feel how you are carried on waves of energy. Notice the expansion. Notice how the energy feels bigger. Notice how your thoughts become peaceful and free of stress at the solar plexus chakra.

Keep notes on your experiences.

The first three chakras are the physical expression of our human existence. You can easily see how when Spirit comes into the body as a baby, the energy is focused at the base chakra, where survival is key. The energy is “learning” to stay in physical form.

The second or emotional chakra, is the next step as the energy learns to connect with others. Once survival is mastered, the energy can move out to explore and interact with others. At the third level or chakra, also called willpower or ego, energy learns to control and manipulate its environment.

As we work with these three chakras and allow Spirit to express through them, you see how the body gains vitality, our emotions are calmed and balanced, and our thoughts are made easy and peaceful. These are some of the gifts of Spirit.

By next week, if you do your daily practice, you will be ready for the wonderful discoveries experienced at the heart chakra and the higher spiritual energies we will cover in the upcoming course, Mastering Higher Energies. I hope you join us on this course as we explore and expand our consciousness together!

Joy to the World

by Dreama Vance
December 24, 2017

How much joy can you contain? Do you think you can hold so much joy that you reach the point of bursting open? Would you then be like a supernova? NASA may not agree, but I like to think of stars bursting into a supernova because of added light, but what if they burst from joy and all of that light is emitted? Can you see yourself this way?

From where does this kind of joy materialize? How can you find it? Is it something given only to a few? Are there answers to these questions? Are we designed to spend our lives searching for this kind of joy? Do most people never find it? Is it even something we want, or is it best just to settle for the status quo?

What if everyone had this ecstasy and lived their life in this state of joy? What would the world be like? What would you be like and where would you go from there? What comes after joy?

Did you know you are birthed into creation each moment? I know, it is almost impossible for us to wrap our brains around that concept, but it is true. We come from the eternal Now… only Now. Since this is true (no matter how difficult it is to understand) it makes you wonder why we are lugging around all the baggage of the past that we carry with us. Why do we carry all the fears and worries of the future with us? Just thinking about setting all of those bags down makes you feel lighter already, doesn’t it?

Do you think joy comes from living in the present moment? Well, maybe. Although I think it is more likely the first attribute you will find by residing in the present moment is peace.

I have another answer for joy. Joy comes from the Spirit. It is wrapped in love and gifted to you when you awaken, not to who you are (Surprise!) but to why you are here.

Now most of us think we are here to grow spiritually, to remember our connection to Source, to raise our vibration, to become Enlightened, and so on and so on. All of that is true. But I have to tell you, I have seen a lot of unhappy people doing this. (Shh, don’t tell.)

Okay, before I say this, I just want you to know I can hear you groaning when you read this next part, so please persevere. It gets better, I promise.

We each have a spiritual mission to perform (maybe more than one during our lifetime). Our spiritual mission is our gift to the world.

It is true some people come into the world “gifted”. There are artists, musicians, mathematicians, child protégés. Their gift is visible at an early age.

Then there are the rest of us who grow up, get a job and wander through life wondering, “What is my purpose?” You actually are here to provide a service, not just to “become enlightened”.

The secret to discovering your spiritual mission, if you have not found it yet, is found in the paradox. When you discover your spiritual mission, you will discover the gift of joy. Paradoxically, what brings you joy, what your passion is, what you spend your free time doing, what you love to do, IS your spiritual mission. It has been a thread running through your life. Look and find it.

It is so simple and so easy. It isn’t complicated, so don’t make it so. It really is right under your nose. Perhaps you have always loved to build things and always have a project under construction at home. Maybe you love to make up stories for little kids. Maybe you love to be in the kitchen making delicious food. These are gifts. If they light you up and bring you joy, they are your spiritual mission! They don’t have to be earth shattering. They do have to bring you joy. When you discover what it is, you will be filled with joy. You will laugh and say, “But I have always loved doing that!”

Do you know, there are actually people who love to clean? What a gift! Some people actually like to organize things and are good at it. Whatever your spiritual mission is, you will already be good at it, because it is a part of you. It depicts your interests and consequently the skills you have developed over time.

When you find your spiritual mission, find a way to bundle it so that you can give it to the world. Start by giving to neighbors and local communities. Watch it grow. Begin to teach others how to do what you do. There are myriad ways to share your gift.

Once you discover your spiritual mission, make it a focus in your life. Begin to share and be of service to the world. When you do this, you allow Spirit to move out through you into the world and your joy will be boundless.

At the start of the article I asked, “What comes after joy?” All of the gifts of Spirit will begin revealing themselves when you begin giving in joy and fulfilling your mission. It will be like you opened the floodgates for Spirit to pour forth into the world.

Give your gift to the world. The world is waiting for you to become a supernova!

What Is Real?

by Owen K Waters

What is real? What is there to hold on to?

One of the main reasons for experiencing life on Earth is to discover what is real. We spend our lives coming here, going there, trying this and trying that. We acquire physical things and eventually let them go. Life’s experiences pass by like so much water under the bridge.

One constant in all of life’s ever-changing realities is the inner observer. This aspect of your inner self is present in all of life’s experiences, watching, learning, remembering. However, when you go even deeper than this, you reach the underlying basis of all consciousness, the awareness that, simply, you exist.

This fundamental awareness can be summarized in two words: “I am.”

The great “I Am” presence

You are one individual viewpoint of the great I Am, the consciousness of All That Is, the all-inclusive and all-embracing Infinite Being.

Consciousness is reality. Experiences may change from minute to minute, but underneath the flow of experiences lies that constant awareness, the sense of being that says, “I am.”

Life is about experiences which unfold at different locations in space and time. Space, however, is merely a construct of the Creator’s consciousness. The concept of space was created to allow an infinite variety of viewpoints to exist.

Time is also a construct of consciousness. Time enables change within space, making events and experiences possible.

Is physical matter a construct of consciousness? Matter is composed of energy, and energy, like all things in life, is a construct of consciousness.

The definition of energy

Energy is compressed consciousness.

galaxy2Each unit of energy is formed by counter-rotating vortexes of Intent. These vortexes push together to form a tiny sphere of compressed consciousness within their center, which becomes a particle of living energy.

Intent and Love in motion are the original, fundamental principles used in Infinite Being’s creation of the universe. Like thought and feeling, these aspects of being operate as complements to each other, and yet each one can be defined as an underlying, fundamental principle. When intent, the principle of thought, and love, the principle of feeling, are set into motion, then one invokes the other. The same complementary action occurs in electromagnetism when electricity is set into motion. The electrons – particles of compressed, original Intent – invoke a complementary magnetic field within the fabric of space.

The fabric of space is created by the Love aspect of the Creator. Love is the aspect of Infinite Being which provides the supportive matrix upon which all else is built. From the point of view of physics, the fabric of space would be defined as pure, inert, magnetic energy. Or, at least, it would be if physics had gotten around to defining it yet. It used to be called the aether, but its properties were not fully understood at the time. Physics, for the most part, does not currently believe in the aether, does not currently believe in a Creator of the universe, and, as a result, has no idea why particles of energy exhibit signs of consciousness.

The original Creation


Before the original Creation occurred, Infinite Being formed an expression of itself which was to become the Creator of the universe. Then, as the One Creator, it focused its Intent, expressed its Love, and brought these two aspects of Itself into motion. All of the universe was built upon these underlying principles, which make possible the facets of Creation such as time, space, energy and matter.

A universe in motion makes possible the changes we call experience. But if life is constantly changing, then what is there to hold on to? What is unchangingly real?

Unchanging reality is to be found beneath those fundamental aspects of the Creator’s Intent and Love in motion. Infinite Being is the underlying reality. Infinite Being is all that is, it never changes. Being is pure potential, whereas doing is the acting out of that potential.

The underlying reality of Infinite Being is complete beingness. Infinite Being is real. It never changes. It always is; just is.

How do you connect with reality? By meditating, by using the affirmation, “I am Infinite Being,” you can build your connection daily to the true reality which lies within you.

When you make spirituality your number one priority at the start of each day, then daily meditation becomes a habit, something which occurs with ease. By building that inner bridge to reality, you are empowering your own potential and also helping to shift the global mind toward enlightenment.

This frees your spirit to soar to new heights of spiritual awareness by combining today’s most proven and time-tested spiritual practices in one powerful and effective package.

Mass Dreams of the Future

by Owen K Waters

In Dreama Vance’s recent article, Nodal Points and The Train Station, she illustrated the concept of different parallel realities – of how different trains are leaving the station and how we can choose which “train” we will take as we progress through The Shift into tomorrow’s world.

As we shall see, the idea of choices for alternate versions of our future explains the great mystery that was introduced in the early 1980s in the book, Mass Dreams of the Future.

It details the results of a research project that was undertaken where hundreds of seminar attendees were progressed into the future to see what their lives would be like in the time period 2100 – 2500 AD. Author Chet Snow summarized the results of this research project, which had been conducted by himself and past lives expert Helen Wambach.

Of those subjects reporting that they are to be physically incarnate in those future time zones, they found that the information correlated remarkably well into certain categories. These showed common themes in the different living environments viewed in those future incarnations:

1. New Age-types who lived an ecological lifestyle in harmony with the Earth.

2. In-space dwellers and people who lived on other planets.

3. A world of dome-covered cities. In sharp contrast to the green earth of the first category, this was a world where people lived under domes that offered protection against an unbreathable outside atmosphere.

4. Isolated cases of survivors living in the rubble of once-great cities.

In the 2100 AD era, any expeditions outside the dome-covered cities required breathing apparatus for survival. Author Chet Snow was deeply puzzled by the contrast in environments. It was, as he stated, as though the dome cities were on an entirely different planet. The dome city people of 2100 AD weren’t living on the pre-Shift, third-density Earth that we know because that showed up (in category 4) as a largely-abandoned relic of today’s world, but with a breathable atmosphere.

Well after the 2100 AD era, however, the dome planet atmosphere was seen to have become cleaned up sufficiently for humans to venture out and make rural life possible. They were then able to farm the land, initially in a low-tech way similar to the 1800s on Earth and later with the help of machines. At that point, the dome cities were still in use by people who preferred the controlled-climate cities rather than living out in the country with its seasons and weather variations.

Stark differences were observed between conditions in the New Age eco-heaven on Earth and the domed communities on the other world; not only in the atmosphere, but in the level of crime.

The New Agers on Earth co-existed in a heart-centered reality with hardly a ripple of conflict between anyone. Some dome dwellers, on the other hand, reported lives that ended as murder victims or by being executed for having committed serious crimes against others. From this, it is safe to conclude that the world of dome-covered cities will be populated by people who did not wish to make the shift to heart-consciousness on Earth.

So, people were reporting very different futures for the same time period – futures of enlightened harmony on the one hand and the opposite on the other hand.

If you consider that parallel realities exist, each containing very different circumstances, then the stark difference can be understood.

It is also safe to say that the “isolated cases of survivors living in the rubble of once-great cities” is not an enlightened kind of parallel reality.

The key to where a person ends up in 2100 AD must be the focus of their consciousness. Do they wish to transform into higher consciousness and go with the Earth into a higher level of reality, or do they want to stay with the same old ways of base emotionality and perpetual conflict?

We know that our thoughts create our reality, even if the immediate effects are not vividly noticeable. Not only do our thoughts and emotions create our own reality, they also influence and manifest in the outer world.

In the longer term, with The Shift causing a dividing of the ways, the research in Mass Dreams of the Future illustrates that those alternate realities can be very different indeed.

Nodal Points and The Train Station

by Dreama Vance

Although there are many in the world still functioning in an unconscious state of awareness, most of us “spiritual seekers” have, at some time in our life journey, awakened to the realization of One Source. We become cognizant of One Source of energy that animates life, that runs through all of existence, giving life, sustaining life, being Life itself.

I call this “becoming conscious.”

We become conscious of this energy and become conscious of the journey we are on in this life. This awakening period is a nodal point. Nodal points are significant events that occur, intersecting timelines and offering opportunities for branching into different trains of exploration.

Once we become conscious of our spiritual life, we begin to explore this realm. It is, in a very real sense, a time of falling in love. When in love, the world is made new. It is awash with sunlight, no matter the weather. Grouchy people, snarled traffic, all go unnoticed as we float in this happy state of new love. So it is as we begin our conscious exploration of spiritual life. Our eyes are starry as we experience the marvels of this new way of being. We stand in amazement as miracles roll out at our feet.

Just as new love changes, however, so does our spiritual journey. Although love remains, the path is not always smooth and easy. Bumps appear in the road. The observable world edges back into our reality. We run into road construction, have to take detours and may experience accidents and delays on our journey.

Somewhere in our journey, we reach the second nodal point. There are many different life experiences that can bring us to this point, but bring us it will. My sister used to say, “Until you can stand naked on the hill, you will not know yourself.” This is, indeed, the second nodal point. It is a time where everything we think we are, have, and hold dear is stripped away.

It is not necessarily a crisis of faith that brings us to this point. Indeed, it may even be our faith that leads us here. Nevertheless, it is a place and time where the external factors that we use to define ourselves are removed from us, either through our own choosing, or by other factors. However we arrive, we find ourselves standing utterly alone on that hill.

This is a metaphor, of course. It does not necessarily mean you will be alone. It means you will have to stand alone, stripped of the trappings we use like clothes. In this nakedness, only you will be able to know yourself, to know who you really are.

I was given wonderful wisdom during that time in my own life, which I pass along to you because it still, many years later, stands me in good stead:

“You can choose to focus your attention on what is behind you. You can worry about it, regret it, be angry over it, or sad about it. Or, you can focus your attention on the future. Infinite possibility stretches in front of you. You can look forward with anticipation and excitement over what is to come. It is entirely your choice.”

Hmm… look back and be miserable, or look forward with anticipation. I think I’ll choose the second option, looking forward. If you, too, choose to look forward, then this nodal point offers another period in time when we see with new vision. We see with new clarity. The world is again made new.

You can easily see that you are still on your spiritual journey. It is, however, as if you have taken a step up to another level of consciousness. The world looks different. You are different. In this next part of the journey love deepens. Our consciousness matures. Life, with its ups and downs, joys and heartaches, develops us. Through it all, it is almost as if we are driven to go deeper. That inner part of our heart cries out for deeper connection. The lotus of Truth begins to unfold our understanding. Once again we come to a nodal point.

We find ourselves again standing naked on the hill. This time, however, we stand in our power. We stand in stillness while the storm rages around us. We can look back and see the progress we have made. Indeed, we can see the spirals of our life and identify those nodes.

I am reminded of an analogy about The Shift that I heard in the mid 1990s. Someone described this period of our history as a train station. We would each have to choose the train we wanted to be on for our future. Would we choose a spiritual train? Or would we take a train remaining in the third dimension? Would factory farming and pharmaceutical drugs still reign supreme on your train of choice? How about boundaries and walls… the TSA and genetically modified food? Which train will you board? It is not just a political agenda.

As the trains leave from the station, they are all close together and we can choose to hop over to another one. But, as the trains go farther away from the station they branch away from each other and soon it is no longer possible to change trains. Eventually, you no longer even see the other trains.

I had forgotten this depiction, but we are now twenty years down the road. The train I am on seems to be taking me to a very different reality than what I knew and understood at the train station. The external world looks different to me. Structures such as governments that once appeared as foundations of integrity now seem like a mirage. I look outside the train window and it is as if I am in a foreign land. Who are these people in the news? Who writes these stories? Truth and decency seem to evaporate like mist outside of my window. Already I feel as if I no longer know this external world.

But the world on the spiritual train, this destination, the journey itself, is exciting! It is clean, and new, and bright. It is full of joy where living food and plant medicines nourish us with light. People know the truth of their being and recognize it in each other.

It is infinite possibility!

What train have you chosen? Choose the future you want now and hop on board!
