The Path of Ascension
Raising Consciousness

The process of "raising consciousness" is like being in a hot air balloon: when you let go the ties, ropes or cords that bind or attach you to the earth, your awareness will rise and you will begin to see life from a higher vantage points !

"If the doors of perception were cleansed,
everything would appear as it is, infinite.” William Blake

Beyond Matter
When looking down at "solid" matter with an electron microscope, there are revealed great empty spaces in between atoms and sub-atomic particles. When looking out into the cosmos with a telescope, we see again great empty spaces in between stars and planets. Because "no-thing" is physically perceived in the in-between spaces of the micro and macro-cosmic universe, does that mean it is truly empty... or is something there but our instruments are not sensitive enough to see?
And if the soul and consciousness is not perceived with some instrument... does that means it too does not exist... or is it something we are not sensitive enough to see? Like oxygen.. or love... just because you cannot touch or see it does not mean it does not exist. Who can see love ? It is not something you can measure with an instrument to prove.. it is something you feel or just know... and what we all know is that without either (oxygen and or love) we die.

Consciousness senses life and love in a way beyond and deeper than the limitations of our physical senses, and as such, it can expand out into the far reaches of the universe and becomes aware... something is out there. And when that something, be it another consciousness reaches out from that void and connects to us.. Magic ! What limits our ability to connect and experience with that magic in each and every moment of our lives is the tendency to fixate our awareness or consciousness on the external physical body and universe. Like clouds covering the sky hiding the light of the sun, our senses are enraptured by that which we are focused upon, and thus, only seeing clouds we cannot know what is beyond. It is such density that veils our intuitive senses and covers it with illusion. In a world where everyone is blinded by illusion, those who can see beyond are usually called crazy.. or genius.

But even in density, everyone has moments of clarity or release from the confining illusions of physical reality. This is most certain upon death, but I am talking about when the soul is still in body, when the ego mind is asleep and the normally outward focused awareness is freed from off the physical and dives below the surface. Here the mysteries of the inner spaces appear, often taking the form of strange visions and nonsensical stories. Meditation (and healing work) achieves similar goals by focusing the awareness off the world and into the void... which allows the inner intelligence to shine forth and communicate with the human conscious self. Within this inner space, we may experience anything.. or everything: energy, vibration, sound, light.... or maybe even some intangible presence like an angel, a master, God or Goddess? In any case, here is found the ultimate answer to the question all religions seek - what is beyond this earthly life? We don't have to wait till our physical body dies to find out - diving into ourselves (be it through meditation or healing work) we come to realize... our essence, our consciousness, our "Soul Light" continues to live and glow. But for the rest of humanity who do not take that inner journey, they must wait until crossing that final frontier (death) to know. In the meantime they may catch glimpses of the beyond while in sleep... when the veils or boundaries between the worlds are at their ebb, and awareness is free to wander (to all those hidden places). And dreaming, in the deep hidden recesses of the mind, there is a distant call that reminds again and again.. there is something more.

Distortions - Filters - Overlays
From deep within the eternal "Witness" behind our lives - the essential core part of us that is "pure awareness" - we "observe" the universe through the "lenses" of our physical senses of perception (sight, sound, smell, feel, taste), and interpret reality as it seems. As children, these "lenses" are clear and pure, untouched by density, uncorrupted by desire. However, like any matter, over time these same lenses collect dust, get discolored, scratched and in some cases cracked and fractured.. and so what input we receive from them becomes distorted. And upon the film of our subconscious mind, we record and store layer upon layer -overlays- all such input as our life experiences, images, interpretations, impressions, identifications, judgments, belief systems, thoughts, programs, traumas and emotions... all this "stuff" sits there to remain for all time, or until we delete them from the subconscious "hard drive" of our mind. And as we look out into the universe through the lenses of all our subconscious programs, our perception of what is true and real is again distorted by all these "overlays" of recorded and stored stuff. For example, if you had an overlay of "red" angry energy, all you see and feel would be anger. (FYI, since "Old Souls" had more past lives, they typically have more overlays).

Our personal experience of reality is defined by that which covers or filters our perceptions. Our inner being or "Christ Self" is always pure and free, but when our energy field mind and consciousness is overlaid with life time after life time of accumulated stuff, our perception, interpretation and thus response to the world becomes distorted, and with such distortions we cannot act in a pure way to life as it is. The goal of the healing work is to remove these filters so that our energy field and mind is crystal clear, allowing the "Christ" light within to shine forth.

“Blessed are the pure at heart for they shall see God”

Levels of Consciousness
Within all of Creation there are many dimensions and many universes, each with its own unique vibrations, energies and colors... ranging along a near infinite spectrum from the most dense and dark to the most fine and light.

From whatever dimension or universe a soul has ever traveled through, a large or small portion of these vibrations, energies and colors are embedded or coated onto and as the different layers of the souls energy field (like layers of an onion). These layers, filters or overlays - no matter how dense or fine, dark or light - all influence and distort the souls perception, experience and interpretation of life.

In some cases, depending on how many dark dimensions or universes traveled, a soul can accumulate so much stuff that their entire energy field appears as a dark cloud. This souls experience of life would be very depressing to say the least (unfortunately, there are many people who carry such overlays). Though there are souls who are totally dark like this, most souls carry differing shades of darkness located in various areas of their energy field, from small dots here and there to entire body parts. If one holds a lot of stuff, the process of releasing and healing could take a long time.

When the lenses of our senses and mind are polished clean, we will see things as they are, not what we have made them to be.
