Death is at best a temporary reprieve “from” the human condition, that is, until the soul must return to complete its unfinished business. However, if the soul desires to experience eternal liberation “within” the human condition, be it liberation from karma or the compulsion to reincarnate, this is brought about through a process called "Ascension".

Over many eons of incarnations within a varied assortment of bodily shells, we have made innumerable journeys through many alternate realities, dimensions, worlds, even other universes... before finding ourselves here now on this earthly plane. And after leaving this life, the journey continues as we find ourselves reincarnating again and again into more spaces, places, and various bodies, on and on. In an eternity of existence, the possibilities are endless and the drama that is the "wheel of life" turns round and round. Yet, through all our journeys there lies within our heart a constant yearning: to reclaim our lost innocence and return to our spiritual home, which is in essence to be at one with our Creator. This is the primal urge and goal of Ascension.

The "incarnation process" of our soul (or as some would say, our “Fall from Grace”) was initiated by riding on the creative (manifesting) energies of the Kundalini. Conversely, as embodied souls, the process of our “Ascension” (our "return to Eden", so to speak) will be initiated by receiving into the density of our being the destructive (dematerializing) energies of the Kundalini (the consciousness of these “destructive” and “creative” forces are respectfully referred to as "Shiva" and “Shakti”).

The Ascension process is not necessarily the removal or disintegration of the astral, solar, etheric and causal bodies (the incarnation process in reverse). Rather, ascension is the liberation of the consciousness or soul from its attachments to all these bodily shells (while still embodied), and we come to realize our oneness with the Higher Self and God. In other words, it is an internal ascension, not a physical one (as occurs in death). Those who internally ascend still maintain the ability to function within all these bodies without having to leave them behind at the point of a physical death.

Around and in between all of your energy bodies are any number of "membranes", "sheaths", “walls” or "veils" that keep the various bodies, energies and consciousness separate from each other. When the soul was incarnating into the different dimensions, these veils were formed, allowing the different bodies and energies to interface, transform and flow from one level to the next. However, when the incarnated soul is ready to ascend, integrate and unite with the next level of higher energy and consciousness, the veils between the two must be removed.

There is a misconception that when the physical body dies, your whole being ascends into some sort of blissful paradise. Depending upon certain variables, this may or may not be true. Though your soul has forcibly been ripped of its "physical" garments, you still have many other energetic bodies (including their respective aspects, conscious selves and veils) all of which are not automatically purified upon physical death (since the physical death only affects the physical body). So no matter where you go (in time or space) as long as these other energetic bodies and selves (and veils) are not purified, they will continue to affect your subjective experience of any objective reality you happen to find yourself in. Any body and veil not purified will act as a sort of glass ceiling, preventing the lower levels of your consciousness from ascending.. as well as interfere with your ability to receive the guidance and energies descending from the higher levels of spirit.

Life is a preparation for the death of all ego attachment

The ascension process is not something we can of our own human self force to occur, but it does help if we are willing - willing to let go of all of that which we thought and believed was true and real - for human truth and spiritual truth are often two separate things. To realize the spiritual, you must be willing to go through the process of disillusionment with the material - to experience all your ego mind believes and knows and holds as true come crashing down. At first the process may make your life look (and feel) miserable.. and like Humpty Dumpty, you will never be able to pick up the pieces of the old self ever again.. but this is the price of freedom.

The ascension process itself is about dismantling or deconstructing the attachments you have to the dense limiting energetic structures of your old earth bound life. If you are in a balloon and want to rise up to the highest heights possible, you first must be released of all your tethers (lines, cords, or ropes) holding you down. Then you must be willing to let go of all ballast (your stuff) no matter how attractive or helpful they have been to you in the past. Like they say... “you can’t take it with you if you want to get to Heaven”.

Moving on to the next higher levels of consciousness and energy requires one to let go of the old consciousness and energies... which sometimes means releasing ones old and familiar levels of guidance (i.e. ones spirit guides). All must be released if one is to be opened to receiving the higher levels of spirit (for the soul to ascend, it cannot “have its cake and eat it too”). It is your old ego self that has grown accustomed to and identifies with all these old ways of being, thinking, feeling and doing. But something has to be given up for something new (and better) to take its place. And once you are in this process of letting go, it can be quite disillusioning.. and you may feel like you are dying (except that you still have your body). But it is the ego attachments that are dying - not the true you.

Since there are so many levels of consciousness that can be ascended through, one can experience this sort of dying process many times over... and each time the next plateau is reached, it is as if one is born again into a new self (including a whole new level of spiritual guidance via new spirit guides). This death and rebirth process goes on and on until one (eventually) reaches the highest consciousness of your own God Self.. and beyond that..... ?

From the ashes of the ego a new being is born.

Our inner soul is pure and free, but as long as we experience ourselves within and through the limitations of the human condition, we don't fully realize this. However, as the density of our human (materially oriented) consciousness is freed up or “quickened” into finer more expanded subtle states of being, we may then come to realize our inner truth - experienced as love, understanding, compassion, joy, peace and happiness.

This process of raising our human consciousness is called “The Ascension”.

Partly due to the seductive appeal of the material, it is much harder to ascend or “raise” our soul from density than it initially was to descend into density.

Many souls (at first) find life in density to be a rich experience, full of all sorts of phenomena and novel sensations. This can be satisfying and pleasurable - for a time. However, there comes a point when every soul is fed up with this drama and starts to yearn for a freer, more peaceful and loving life. However, complications arise when the soul finds itself unable to extract itself from the attractions of the material world ("the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"). This is due to the fact that the material has its own gravity or attractive magnetic force field. It’s like being caught in the gravity field of a planetary body – unless one has a greater power to resist and move in the opposite direction, you are going to fall in. And if by chance you find yourself already standing on the ground (already incarnated into a body) you will have to generate an even stronger force to escape the planets attractive pull. In other words, once you are already incarnated into a body, the soul is usually stuck there until acted upon by a very strong force (in this case, the power of the Great Spirit as applied within the healing sessions).

On ones own, it would normally take lifetimes of arduous practice (ever masterfully guided and directed) to develop, expand, free up and harness ones spiritual power to the degree capable of catapulting (ascending) a soul beyond the pull (gravity) of the material forces. However, with assistance from the Great Spirit, this process can be accelerated.

It required great effort exerted over a very long time for human technology to evolve to the point when it could overcome gravity and send a rocket into celestial space. So too will it require great effort by the the embodied human soul to evolve from the density and ascend into spiritual space. Along the way, the qualities of patience, willingness, faith, trust, courage, understanding and of course love.. will all be needed. Though everyone has these qualities to some degree or another, no one has them all perfectly developed. With assistance from the Great Spirit, all these qualities are magnified and refined.


The Ascended Master - Following Your Heart

Where your attention goes, there your heart is sure to follow.
Where you focus your energies, that is what you become.
The thoughts, feelings and energies one invests into building a career, hobby, talent, relationship, or anything... be it material or spiritual based... over time and much effort, that is what we identify with and eventually become. In other words, we become what we are attentive to, feed and love. For example, if money is a form of your life energy, do you spend your energy accumulating material things.. or is that energy dedicated to spirit by tything to a church, charity, or for healings? Your answer determines what you love and thus choose to become... is it the material or spiritual?

You choose the master of your destiny.
If you follow the outer voice of the ego and lower self...
your path is one of ignorance, darkness and despair.
If you follow the inner voice of Spirit...
your path is one of power, wisdom, love and light.

The more you follow the guidance of spirit - guidance which is aligned to the harmoneous flow of the universe - the more miraculous synchronicities that may be experienced.

Because of the Law of Free Will, Spirit will not interfere in your life without being invited in. The more areas and issues you ask spirit to work on, the more spirit will be able to help you. As you invite spirit into your entire life, eventually you will become that which you love - the embodiment of Spirit itself.

To be a master is not an easy achievement - it requires one to be consistently onguard against ego attachment and identification with the material world. Once accomplished here in this density, that state becomes grounded in ones multi-dimensional selves (from the lowest to the highest). A being who is channeling or manifesting the essence, energy, and vibration of the High Self upon the earth plane - free of ego entanglement - is called an Ascended Master.

To become this sort of master typically takes many lives devoted to ones spiritual life. Different things are asked of the master in training.. thankfully, being nailed to a tree (being crucified or martyred) is not one of them. Though many souls have been horribly persecuted and tortured for their beliefs, it is not a prerequisite to following a spiritual path or becoming a master. Sometimes the more difficult challenge is rather, not to go through such extreme experiences, but to change ones eating habits, leave a co-dependent relationship, prioritize ones spending, or eliminate addictive behaviors. Perhaps journeying in a diary may be a step in the right direction, or meditating an hour a day, or receiving healing sessions... any of these and or something else may be required to develope self mastery. And what is right for one is not necessarily right for another, it all depends on your path, which is unique from person to person. In other words, there is no one way that fits all... but there is only one way that fits you.

However your path looks, it will be unique to you. As we are all unique individuals with unique histories and issues, our unique tests and challenges on this path (to develop mastery) can be quite different than that which is asked of another. Thankfully, once you really "get" or master a particular experience, you usually don't have to do it again.

If you wish to become a master, become a student of the Higher Self.

The greatest problems do not come from someone or something "out there", but from the shadow "within". No matter what happens to us in life, we are personally responsible for the way we respond. To embrace this truth is the path of mastery.

Planetary Ascension

One day we shall liberate our consciousness from the last bonds of earthy attachments and realize that primal, unlimited, infinite place we once knew as innocent pure souls.
“Is it really possible to experience this boundlessness of Spirit within the limitations of the human body?”
Great Spirits overseeing the ascension of this planet and its inhabitants are constantly working behind the scenes to make this very goal a reality. They are doing everything in their power to make this come true.. for this is the “Divine Agenda”, “The Master Plan”, “The Grand Experiment” we have all signed up for on planet earth. Sounds outrageous (and it is), but Spirit does not think small, nor should we. And that in a nutshell is why we all need healing – to “get with the program” (and in one quick hurry too).

It is my sense that those who miss this “ascension boat” this “planetary cycle”* will not be able to remain on or return to this planet for reincarnation, but will be taken elsewhere to continue their “education” (fair warning - I don’t think it will be pretty).

 * A “planetary cycle” is a spiritual and energetic phase of development within the history of a whole planet. Just like universities who have a set quota to accept a select few students and reject those others who don’t match the minimum requirements, so too are Souls brought to particular planets (“schools”) that can accommodate their soul’s lesson plans and that are in line with the souls life path. If a planet ascends beyond a soul’s ability to handle the newly elevated consciousness of that planet, the soul will not be accepted into that planets energy field. This also pertains to the astral schools existing on other planets or solar systems.

A Spiritual Conspiracy

Tremendous changes are taking place in our world
rippling effects caused by a series of inner choices.
What you see now is just the beginning of a global paradigm shift...
"A Revolution of Consciousness"

The last war will not be won by sword or gun
but only through a change of consciousness.

Conspiracy (con + spire) "to breathe together".

On the surface of our world right now
There is war, violence, and craziness
And things may seem dark.
But calmly and quietly
At the same time
Something is happening underground.
An inner revolution is taking place
And certain individuals
Are being called to a higher light.

It is a silent revolution
From the inside out
From the ground up.
This is a global co-operation
That has sleeper cells in every nation.
It is a planetary Spiritual Conspiracy.
You won’t likely see us on T.V.
You won’t read about us in the newspaper.
You won’t hear from us on the radio.
We don’t seek glory.
We don’t wear any uniform.
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles.
We are in every country and culture of the world
In cities big and small, mountains and valleys
In farms and villages, tribes and remote islands.
Most of us work anonymously
Seeking not recognition of name
But profound transformation of life.

Working quietly behind the scenes
You could pass by one of us on the street
And not even notice.
We go undercover
Not concerned for who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done.
Many of us may seem to have normal jobs.
But behind the external storefront
Is where the deeper work takes a place.

With the individual and collective power
Of our minds and hearts
We spread passion, knowledge, and joy to all.
Some call us the Conscious Army
As together
We co-create a new world.
Our orders come from the Spiritual Intelligence Agency
Instructing us to drop soft, secret love bombs
when no one is looking.

Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Smiles ~
Kind words ~ Movies ~ Meditation and prayer ~
Dance ~ Websites ~ Social activism ~ Blogs ~
Random acts of kindness…

We each express ourselves
In our own unique ways
With our own unique gifts and talents.
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
That is the motto that fills our hearts.
We know this is the path to profound transformation.

We know that quietly and humbly
Individually and collectively
We have the power of all the oceans combined.
At first glance our work is not even visible.
It is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains.
And yet with our combined efforts
Entire tectonic plates
Are being shaped and moved for centuries to come.

Love is the religion we come to share
And you don’t need to be highly educated
Or have exceptional knowledge to understand it.
Love arises from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse
Of all living beings.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
Nobody else can do it for you.
Yet don’t forget, we are all here supporting you.
We are now recruiting.
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.
For in this spiritual conspiracy
All are welcome, and all are loved.
The door is always open.
