The Magnificence of God’s Infinite Being ~ Rupert Spira


Published on Mar 20, 2017

This clip is an excerpt from a collection of yoga meditations taken from Rupert Spira’s new box set Transparent Body, Luminous World: The Tantric Yoga of Sensation and Perception. The box set includes a set of six mp3 CDs with over 30 hours of guided yoga meditations; and a paperback book of the transcriptions of the spoken meditations.

The 24 yoga meditations explore the experience of the body and world as a continuously changing flow of sensations and perceptions appearing in, known by and made of awareness. These direct and penetrating contemplations discuss and facilitate the gradual alignment of the non-dual understanding with the way the body and world are felt and perceived.

Endorsements

‘Under Rupert Spira’s precise and loving guidance, this esoteric teaching becomes an actual, felt experience… As you follow his pointing-out instructions, body, thoughts, sensations and sounds start to reveal themselves as arising inside a borderless Awareness. In time, you begin to feel your entire experience as saturated with Awareness, made of Awareness, dancing inside Awareness. Connecting to the Presence flowing through Rupert’s words, you literally catch the awakened state. Rupert’s pointing-out instructions can free Consciousness to recognize itself, so that gradually – or suddenly! – your body and the world around you become transparent to the knowing Presence that is experiencing itself as you.’
– Sally Kempton, author of Meditation for the Love of It and Awakening Shakti

‘Rupert speaks from within a field of infinite tenderness, mind and heart joined in awe of the mystery of existence. This is a voice from inside the truth, creating fresh language, a lovingly crafted stream of revelation. This is a voice of infinite gentleness speaking through space and time from the Awareness beyond space and time, reminding us all of our own essence. I am stunned by the beauty and clarity here.’
– Lorin Roche, author of The Radiance Sutras: 112 Gateways to the Yoga of Wonder and Delight and Meditation Secrets for Women

‘Rupert points out that it’s one thing to think the separate self doesn’t exist, quite another to actually feel it. Here, in extraordinary depth and clarity, we are taken through a series of explorative meditations to allow us to feel and experience directly our real nature – unnameable knowing – beyond all boundaries of time and space.’
– Billy Doyle, author of Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition: The Art of Listening and The Mirage of Separation

Is the Soul Obsolete? Larry Dossey

Published on Mar 16, 2017

https://www.scienceandnonduality.com

Ian Stevenson
, the consciousness researcher who reported thousands of cases of children who claimed to remember previous lives, observed, “It has been wisely said that the question of a life after death is the most important question that a scientist – or anyone – can ask.” He further stated, “I believe it is better to learn what is probable about important matters than to be certain about trivial ones.”

Research into human survival of bodily death has involved approaches such as near-death and out-of-body experiences, mediumistic investigations, children who report previous lives, evidence of global consciousness, and apparently nonlocal manifestations of consciousness such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis and precognition.

In this presentation, physician Larry Dossey will explore the possibility of survival by examining the inadequacy of a materialist approach to consciousness, which forbids the possibility of survival of mind. He will show that a nonlocal model of consciousness implies infinitude in space (omnipresence) and time (eternality and immortality) for some aspect of who we are; and that, if unbounded in space and time, consciousness must in some sense be unitary and collective – the ancient vision of the Universal or One Mind.

An omnipresent, eternal, and unitary aspect of consciousness resembles the concept of the soul in many spiritual traditions throughout human history. Generally considered a religious and faith- based idea, it is ironic that empirical science is producing evidence that is favorable toward such a view. Thus, the concept of soul is decidedly not obsolete, but may be more grounded than ever. Dr. Dossey will also discuss the ethical implications of a unitary, collective aspect of consciousness for the many global challenges that currently confront humanity.

Dr. Larry Dossey
is an internal medicine physician, former Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, and former co-chairman of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, National Institutes of Health. He is executive editor of the peer-previewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing. He is the author of twelve books on the role of consciousness and spirituality in health, which have been translated into languages around the world. His most recent book is ONE MIND: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters. He lectures around the world.

From Magic to Religion to Science: What’s Next? Dean Radin


Published on Dec 20, 2016

https://www.scienceandnonduality.com

Humanity’s first grasp of reality was based on a magical worldview. Over millennia, magic evolved into a multitude of esoteric and religious ideas. Within the last five centuries our worldview has settled upon science as the arbiter of truth. Each of these major transitions has offered more comprehensive explanations of the natural world, but each new paradigm also suppressed useful elements of previous worldviews. Based on the historical record, as well as a growing body of new experimental studies, we can now gain a glimmering of what our next grasp of reality may look like, along with its pragmatic consequences.

Dean Radin, PhD (Psychology, University of Illinois), has been Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences since 2001. He previously held appointments at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, Bell Labs, and SRI International. Author or co-author of over 200 technical and popular articles, he has also written several books including the bestselling The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), and Supernormal (Random House, 2013).

An awareness of the inner worlds is an essential part of our human heritage—those worlds that are invisible to our physical sight, but exist in other dimensions of reality. However, this awareness has been censored by rational consciousness and our present culture. This talk explores our need to reclaim our connection to these realities, to return to the greater wholeness to which we belong.

What If This Is Heaven?: How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us from Experiencing Heaven on Earth by Anita Moorjani (Author)

Following her near-death experience as shared in the New York Times bestseller Dying to Be Me, Anita Moorjani knows well the truths that exist beyond common knowledge and acceptance. The clarity she has gained has led her to further understand who she was born to be.

Part of that truth has involved contemplating the cultural myths infused into our everyday lives. Passed down from generation to generation, these myths are pervasive and influential. From the belief we reap what we sow to the idea we must always be positive, cultural myths are often accepted as truths without questioning. Moorjani asserts it is now time for questioning in order to help us reach our fully informed, authentic selves.

Moorjani explores these common myths in their real-world existence while presenting examples from her own life that reveal the falsehoods beneath the surface. By freeing ourselves from these ubiquitous expectations, we can break open an honest pathway to life as it was meant to be lived.

From the Author

Several of you have written to me saying “How can this possibly be heaven? If this is heaven, why does it feel like hell??” And I want to say that I’m actually not surprised by that reaction, and even when I came up with the title, I expected some of you to say that to me!! So let me explain. Many years ago, my life was hell too. I was bullied very badly as a child, and was taunted and discriminated against for the color of my skin and my family origin–something I had no control over. That really made my life miserable. And it certainly felt like hell when I was going through cancer, being in constant pain and fear for all those years.

Life truly was a struggle for me, and I lived in immense fear for a huge part of my life. I had always believed that life happens to us. In other words, I believed that I was a victim of my circumstances, so I was always reacting to life instead of creating life. Of course I didn’t believe I created my life circumstances. Who would create a childhood of bullying and discrimination, all of which shaped my thinking? Who would choose to be born as a woman into a culture that still believes women are inferior to men? Who would create cancer in their own life? Of course I was a victim of my circumstances. Or so I thought…until I “died”.

It’s been 10 years since I faced death and came out the other side. Now when I look back at these past 10 years, I can see that my life is so drastically different from what it was prior, that I sometimes wonder whether I actually came back from death, or whether I’m still in the other realm. All the fear I used to have, all the pain, all the insecurity – they are all gone! So much so that I wonder whether I’m still dead and this is heaven! Every day, I get to do stuff I love to do! Of course this feels like heaven!

But then I read the letters I have received over the last few years from so many of you, where you share your pain, and your fears. And also, I take a look around at the world around us. And it all brings me back down to earth. And I wonder, “Why can’t we all create this state of heaven for ourselves? What is preventing us from doing it? Why did it take death for me to realize how to live my life? Isn’t it a wasted life if people only learn the truth of how to live when they die?”

Those are the questions that inspired me to write this book. I don’t want you to have to wait until you die to learn how to live. Remember, we are all connected, and I feel what you feel. This book comes from my heart to yours.

Much Love,

Anita

Thymus – The Seat of the Human Soul By Suniva Snowe

Our Thymus Seems to Die as We Age. Can We Put a Stop to it?

Our physio-energetic body is supplied with life energy through a number of major and minor chakras. Each of them nourishes and regulates a specific area of our being. One chakra less often spoken of than the commonly referenced seven major ones is the thymus or higher heart chakra. It is located halfway between the heart and the throat chakras, behind the breast bone. In literature, you will find it depicted in soft pink, teal or white.

The physical thymus

On a physical level, the higher heart chakra, also called the ascended heart chakra, is connected with an intriguing organ: the thymus gland. The latter forms part of our lymphatic system and sits wedged between the heart and the sternum. Its prominent job is to support our immune response by producing T-leukocytes. These white blood cells perform two major tasks. Firstly, they distinguish inoffensive body cells from intruding pathogens.

Where is the Thymus?

Where is the Thymus?

Secondly, they fend the pathogens off. The thymus is most active during childhood and adolescence, which is when it supplies the young organism with the full repertoire of T-leukocytes it will need in life. The T-cells are then distributed throughout the lymphatic system, where they await their future use. Towards the end of puberty, the thymus reaches its maximum size and weight.

During adulthood, it pares back its production of T-cells and goes into atrophy. After it stops working, usually around the age of fifty, we have to make do with whatever T-cells are still surviving in our body to combat illness. By the time we reach old age, the thymus gland has virtually disintegrated into the surrounding tissues.

Overcoming cellular dementia

This decay is called thymic involution. We humans experience it along with all other vertebrates on the planet: mammals, birds, amphibians, fish, and reptiles. As a result, our immune response slacks as we get older. We become more susceptible to infections, cancer and autoimmune disease, which occurs when insufficiently discerning leukocytes destroy our own body cells because they mistook them for pathogenic attackers.

Involuted thymus

Involuted thymus

Our T-cells seem to experience some sort of cellular dementia. Apparently, the productivity of the thymus depends greatly on its hormonal environment. Research suggests that the hormonal ecosystem of the adult human organism, which is different from the one generated by the infantile body, causes the gradual degeneration of the thymus gland. External stressors such as malnutrition, psychological crises or sudden trauma can precipitate thymic involution, probably through the hormonal turmoil these situations provoke.

Given the sensitivity of the thymus gland to hormonal changes, some lines of medical research are inquiring whether thymic involution could be halted or even reversed through hormone therapy. However, little is known about the long term effects and biochemical ramifications of such interventions. Possibly, they would summon more devils than they get rid of.

Maintaining our thymus

The internet is sprinkled with articles claiming euphorically that controlling the thymus gland equals possessing the fountain of youth. Authoritative proof is still missing. Why the thymus gland quits its service in the first place, when seemingly it would be best if it remained fully active throughout life, is under discussion.

On the one hand, it could be argued that, if thymic involution has been positively selected in so many different species across the animal kingdom, there must be a trade-off advantage science simply has not identified yet. On the other hand, it would not be the first time human beings tweak biology and extend their lifespan through artificial means. Could our thymus gland survive and benefit us for longer if we found out how to give it better maintenance?

The energetic thymus

From a holistic perspective, there is more to human health than just biological interactions. We are energy, our physical bodies included. Energetically, the thymus is linked to the higher heart chakra, which is often described as “seat of the soul”. It represents the transpersonal aspect of the heart, that is, unconditional divine love.
Unconditional love is free of ego, therefore a healthy higher heart facilitates spiritual growth and deep inner transformation.

Opening our thymus chakra enhances our willingness to forgive and to show compassion. Unlocking it corresponds to flinging open a window for your soul to work through in the material world. Often, people who get in touch with their ascended heart will desire to hand its gifts on to others because, as receptacles of divine love, they also feel it flowing from them like water from a spring.

The thymus chakra

The thymus chakra

In fact, the act of giving always originates in the heart. Our language demonstrates we know this intuitively, as phrases such as “I give this to you with all my heart” indicate. Thus, healing work and other means of giving love are naturally pursued by those with an open ascended heart. Materially, we give with our hands, which are energetically associated with the heart. We use our hands to provide for our loved ones, craft presents for them, feed them, comfort and caress them.

Across different times and cultures, numerous methods of laying on of hands have been devised for healing, and the hand has been considered a symbol of divine protection and blessing. Our hands are our most used tool for spreading the many expressions of love coming through our hearts from the Source.

Some say the thymus chakra responds especially well to sound therapy, given its proximity to the sternum, which acts as a sound board and amplifier of acoustic vibrations. If we look back at the tens of thousands of years during which bone has been a preferred material for the manufacture of musical instruments thanks to its resonance characteristics, we can see the idea has its raison d’être.

Sound therapy for the heart

Sound therapy for the heart

It is also reflected in a variety of folk tales that seem to have evolved from the same basic plot: the breast bone of a youth who was drowned by their sibling in competition for a lover is carved into a harp which later sings the truth about the committed fratricide. Interpreting the tale from a metaphysical viewpoint, we could say: “Heart is a messenger of Truth capable of transcending the machinations of ego.”

Interestingly, the higher heart chakra is said to hold a record of traumatic or painful events, which adds yet another fascinating dimension to the subliminal content of this ancestral narration. Our everyday lives, too, reflect the relationship between heart and sound. Who has not noticed a certain piece of music touch their heart or influence their mood?

Awakening our thymus

Both listening to and making music are cathartic to our emotional state. It awakens dormant feelings from hibernation, helping to process, to externalize and to clear them. Worldwide, medical facilities offer music therapy to make their patients get back in touch with themselves and open up to their surroundings through playful acoustic interaction. So, for a thriving thymus chakra, listen to music, sing like nobody is hearing, dance like nobody is watching or play a musical instrument.

Other than musical activity or sound therapy, there is a vast range of energetically nourishing practices to choose from. Methods combining movement, breath and meditation, like yoga, qi gong or tai chi, stimulate the flow of energy in general, but can also be focused on specific chakras. The same goes for energy healing work like reiki, where a practitioner directs life energy into the recipient´s body – through their hands, mind you – in order to dissolve blockages and recharge depleted energy resources.

Qi gong for the thymus

Reiki can be applied to the client’s entire energetic network or concentrated on selected chakras in spot treatments. The list of energy healing methods could be continued ad infinitum. Which one you choose depends on your personal preferences and on practical considerations such as availability in your area and affordability.

The physio-energetic link

How do energy healing practices relate to the physical thymus? Will any of them preserve it from declining with age? The most educated suggestion to make is that, at least, they should help keep our organism functioning to the best of its capacities for as long as biology allows. It is important to remember that humanity´s longing for eternal life on earth is not always constructive, but can deviate into a desperate ego rampage.

Can exercises stop the thymus from aging?

Can exercises stop the thymus from aging?

The soul has other values and a broader perception than our incarnated self, so remaining eternally earthbound might not be what it needs or desires. For all we can know at this point in time, we eventually have to return to the Source, and our biology is responding to this necessity by helping us let go gradually through the process of aging. Learning to understand biological death as a natural transition, rather than as a sentence of doom, is a cultural task we are facing on a personal and on a societal level.

Accomplishing it would bring us closer to inner peace than any chemical or surgical intervention ever could. Metaphorically, our thymus is teaching us that embracing impermanence is a vital part of growing and progressing through the cycles of our existence. Growth only comes with change, and change is letting go instead of clinging on. We need to discern when we are fighting a fair battle, and when we are seizing forcefully what is not ours to take. This is the challenge of free will.

Embracing the nature of birth and death

Embracing the nature of birth and death



Health on all levels

On this note, the highest service we can render to ourselves is to take responsibility for our health on all levels. Nourish and protect your physical body, your emotional being, your mind and your spirit. Strive for optimization instead of perfection. Doing so may neither afford you eternal youth nor guarantee you to become the proud owner of a teenager’s thymus gland in a seventy-year-old body, but you will achieve the most fulfilled life you are capable of. That’s not a bad deal.

The Fourth Mystical Law: Trust in Divine Paradox, Irony, and Synchronicity by Caroline Myss


Paradox is one of the languages of the Divine, an apparent contradiction that nonetheless contains the truth. The power of a paradox, by its very nature, cannot be captured in a single definition. Paradoxical dynamics are currents that animate the wild cards of our lives, sometimes with such a dramatic force that it gives us pause to consider, “Who could possibly have masterminded such an event?”

Ironic events along with paradoxical ones stand out in our lives, calling us to notice them. They come together with rare, once-in-a-lifetime ingredients that may never coalesce again. These facts alone beckon us to take notice that unusual forces have consciously gathered around us to make that one event happen.

How often has something happened to us that in the moment we think is devastating, only to discover six months or a year later that it was the proverbial “blessing in disguise”? Sometimes the blessing is simply that these events draw us out of our ordinary “sleeping” state; that is, they cause us to wonder about the greater cosmic map, and that’s purpose enough.

The ego is always frightened and cannot discern a blessing from a tragedy, because its only compass is its own survival. As a result, it bases every decision on either what is already knows and its familiar with or what it views as safe. Times of change are about exactly that – a need to change. But changes of circumstance are the illusion, not the intent. You are always the object of change, never your situation. When life presents you with a crossroads and you are not sure what to do, the ego will always fall back on what it has already done. The ego pulls out its resume, which is, paradoxically, exactly the wrong thing to do. Change arrives because you need to move forward, not retreat to the past.

People who look to their past will not do well, because the past is no longer relevant. We can only go forward and toward the fact – and it is a fact – that learning to rely on divine paradox and wisdom will become a great survival grace.

What you can do:

To fall into harmony with divine paradox, irony and synchronicity remember:

  • What is big is really small; what is small is really big.
  • What is frightening is really the safe path; what looks safe is your fear talking.
  • What looks like chaos is actually a future blessing in disguise.
  • Your greatest power is humility; your greatest weakness is humiliation.
    The mustard seed (one clear soul) has more power than the mountain (a group of people in chaos).
  • The power of prayer and grace – knowing how to work in harmony with the cosmos – influences the whole of life, whereas tying to dominate one person destroys you.
  • Your ego – and not someone else’s – is your most ruthless adversary.

Live these truths. Take them into your life and act on them. Look for these mystical energies in your life and note that they are not accidental but represent dynamics that are cause for a conscious response.

Rumi “The Guest House” Poem animation


Here is a virtual movie of a reading of the 13 century Persian philosophical poem “This being human is a guest house”.The poem is read exquisitely by Canadian actor Dennis O’connor who kindly sent me this recording. I have employed the visual services of an unknown Bearded thoughtful looking Victorian gentleman as my visual reader of this ancient poem.

Mawlānā Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī (مولانا جلال الدین محمد بلخى), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī (جلال‌الدین محمد رومی), but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi,[1] (30 September 1207 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian[2][3] poet, Islamic jurist, theologian, and mystic.[4] Rūmī is a descriptive name meaning “the Roman” since he lived most of his life in an area called Rūm because it was once ruled by the Byzantine Empire.[5]

According to tradition, Rumi was born in Balkh, Khorasan (now in Afghanistan), the hometown of his father’s family. Scholars, however, argue that he was most likely born in Wakhsh,[6] a small town located at the river Wakhsh in what is now Tajikistan. Wakhsh belonged to the larger province of Balkh, and in the year Rumi was born, his father was an appointed scholar there.[6] Both these cities were at the time included in the Greater Persian cultural sphere of Khorasan, the easternmost province of historical Persia,[7] and were part of the Khwarezmian Empire.

His birthplace[8] and native language[9] both indicate a Persian heritage. Due to quarrels between different dynasties in Khorasan, opposition to the Khwarizmid Shahs who were considered devious by Bahā ud-Dīn Walad (Rumi’s father)[10] or fear of the impending Mongol cataclysm,[11] his father decided to migrate westwards. Rumi’s family traveled west, first performing the Hajj and eventually settling in the Anatolian city Konya (capital of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum, now located in Turkey). This was where he lived most of his life, and here he composed one of the crowning glories of Persian literature which profoundly affected the culture of the area.[12]

He lived most of his life under the Sultanate of Rum, where he produced his works[13] and died in 1273 CE. He was buried in Konya and his shrine became a place of pilgrimage.[14] Following his death, his followers and his son Sultan Walad founded the Mawlawīyah Sufi Order, also known as the Order of the Whirling Dervishes, famous for its Sufi dance known as the samāʿ ceremony. Rumi’s works are written in the New Persian language. A Persian literary renaissance (in the 8th/9th century) started in regions of Sistan, Khorāsān and Transoxiana[15]and by the 10th/11th century, it reinforced the Persian language as the preferred literary and cultural language in the Persian Islamic world. Although Rumi’s works were written in Persian, Rumi’s importance is considered to transcend national and ethnic borders. His original works are widely read in their original language across the Persian-speaking world. Translations of his works are very popular in other countries.

His poetry has influenced Persian literature as well as the literature of the Urdu, Bengali, Arabic and Turkish languages. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats; He has been described as the “most popular poet in America” in 2007 Kind Regards Jim Clark All rights are reserved on this video recording copyright Jim Clark 2009

The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

The Ten Secrets of Heaven Mysteries of the afterlife revealed By Theresa Cheung


What is heaven like? What is your soul’s purpose? Can you unlock your divine potential?

With advances in modern medicine enabling more and more people to be brought back from the brink of death, it is now possible to paint a vibrant picture of what lies beyond. It is also possible to discover more about our spiritual destiny from near death experiences. Each afterlife experience offers us powerful clues into our soul’s purpose, and in this fascinating new book Theresa Cheung unveils these life-changing truths, or insights, as the Ten Secrets of Heaven. It is only through our understanding of their meaning on earth that we can discover heaven and eternal life.

After explaining each of the ten secrets, Theresa will show how heaven can disguise itself in aspects of daily life, such as health, career, money, love & relationships and life goals, and also during times of crisis, such as when we are depressed, grieving, lacking direction or experiencing heartbreak. Truly understanding how the Ten Secrets of Heaven can be harnessed for our well-being will bring enlightenment, peace and joy. It will also leave no doubt that nothing in this life is as it seems and death is not the end.

Theresa Cheung was born into a family of spiritualists and studied Theology and English at King’s College, Cambridge University before launching into a career in education and then journalism and writing.

Theresa has been writing books about the psychic world for over twenty five years now – some of which have gone onto become Sunday Times Top 10 bestsellers, some have been translated into 25 different languages and her internationally bestselling mind body spirit Encylopedias are still selling strongly – yet she have never claimed to be a psychic or a medium. She has written many books about health and well-being too.

Theresa is an ordinary woman who has had extraordinary experiences.

4 Ways Your Spirit Guides Are Trying To Connect With You

Who Are Your Spirit Guides And How Can They Help You?
By James Van Praagh

Life can be complicated! Fortunately, you don’t have to navigate through it alone. In addition to an earthly support group of friends and family, every one of us has at least one spirit guide or guardian angel to step in when life gets challenging. Your spirit guides bring the wisdom and perspective of many lifetimes, and, best of all, they have no personal agenda! They are simply here to help YOU on your soul journey

Who Are Your Spirit Guides?

Your guides are a part of your soul. Some have been with you for many lifetimes, while others are there for a just short time. Some may be family members who have recently passed, or ancient ancestors who died centuries ago.

Many guides have not lived a human life at all. That is the case with my master guide, Andrew. Andrew helps me to connect with Spirit people, and he protects and supports me in other areas in my life as well. When I first channeled Andrew he said that he was “of an infinite light”, meaning that he is of a higher level, and has never existed on a human level.

Some guides will show up to help you with a particular activity – like a muse, they provide divine inspiration to artists, writers, even healers. The important thing to remember is that all guides work with you to insure that you learn the lessons you were sent down to this earth to experience.

Open Yourself Up To Receive Support And Guidance

To recognize messages from your guides, you must be open and receptive to hearing them. That’s difficult when you’re caught up in the hustle of daily life. Slow down. Take a few minutes each day to meditate, and tune into your inner knowing. Then, when your mind is clear, take a few breaths and send a thought message to your guides. You can ask them a question or request their assistance in a particular area of your life. Then watch for them. Be mindful of any signs and coincidences that present themselves to you. You’ll start to become familiar with the methods your guides will utilize to come through to you. Remember, each guide connects differently, and each person receives differently.

How Spirit Guides Reach Out To You

Guides will come through in various ways.

1. You might notice various synchronicities and patterns occurring. Pay attention because these signal something you need to know!

2. When your guides are within your space you will feel a sense of joy or an acceleration of energy surrounding you. Pay close attention and begin to listen with your gut.

3. Also be mindful if there is a sudden, unexpected change in your emotions. Guides may be attempting to get through to you in this manner – it’s a very effective method of getting you to pay attention.

4. Your guides will also bring people in your life for very important lessons. These “chance” encounters may have been set up months or years ahead of earth time from the spiritual realms in order for you to have a meaningful experience.

In the Oneness of Time: The Education of a Diviner by William Douglas Horden (Author)

In the Oneness of Time is an inspiring true story that draws the imagination into its own magical source, where things become possible, and possibilities become things. It grips the reader like a Castanada/Don Juan tale—for real.

Throughout history and in all cultures, authentic diviners have been connecting their communities with real things unavailable to the physical senses and surface mind. Water for wells, healings, on-target meanings for events, wisdom to guide actions, unusual insights of many kinds—the intuitive perception of diviners makes them available.

Horden, a gifted contemporary diviner, masterfully unfolds this page-turner of how he discovered this mode of intuitive perception and was trained to develop and use it by a series of highly skilled teachers—a spectrum of extraordinary individuals ranging from a sophisticated I Ching master to Tarahumara shamans in Mexico’s Copper Canyon—and a series of down-to-earth-life events and compelling “in-between world” experiences.

William Douglas Horden is a master diviner who works with the I Ching and pre-Hispanic MesoAmerican sacred tools, having studied extensively with Khigh Alx Dhiegh and with Tarahumara shamans in Mexico’s Copper Canyon. He is the co-author The Toltec I Ching, author of numerous books and articles on divination and spirituality, a regular blogger for The Huffington Post and other online publications, and has been a guest on a variety of radio programs. He lives part of the year in Roseburg, Oregon, part of the year in Coatepec, Mexico, and spends part of the year traveling.

Inhabiting Heaven NOW: The Answer to Every Moral Dilemma Ever Posed by Andrea Mathews (Author)

Heaven. We say the word with both a hope of long-awaited bliss and a certain but wistful knowledge that the wait will continue. Life is hard, we say, and the world will end with a whimper or a bang by the hands of blind and evil humans. But then there’s heaven. Yet, what if heaven could be experienced every day right here, right now on planet earth – and the only thing that keeps that from happening is the lie. The lie that we are separate from the Divine due to our polarized sinful, bad, even evil natures. What if, because we are blinded by that lie, we cannot see that we are already living in heaven, in fact, we ARE heaven? And what if those truths could actually be found in the Bible itself, as well as in all of the other sacred texts of the world? What if all that really needs to happen is that the scales fall off of our eyes? If that were true – would you be willing to see? Inhabiting Heaven NOW offers such a brilliant, transformative light that you will not be able, after the read, to turn it off. Its arguments are so lucid, its truths so profound, and its simultaneous practicality so real that the reader simply cannot walk away unchanged.


Psychotherapist, author, speaker and radio host, Andrea Mathews promotes authenticity and the authentic self in every endeavor. Andrea believes, as the old Buddhist saying goes that “The seeker is that which is being sought.” What we don’t know, have forgotten or repressed, is the fact that the seeker is the soul and the finder is also the soul. When we get this, we can really “cease striving” to know that I AM, we are, God.

Andrea Mathews is a psychotherapist with a thriving private practice, offering Transpersonal Therapy to her clients for the past seventeen of her overall thirty years’ experience as a therapist, manager and a supervisor of therapists, in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health field.

She is the author of three books, RESTORING MY SOUL: A WORKBOOK FOR FINDING AND LIVING THE AUTHENTIC SELF (2007), and THE LAW OF ATTRACTION: THE SOUL’S ANSWER TO WHY IT ISN’T WORKING AND HOW IT CAN (2011), and INHABITING HEAVEN NOW: THE ANSWER TO EVERY MORAL DILEMMA EVER POSED (2013), as well as several articles in national and international magazines, and several poems in literary presses. An inspirational speaker to both corporations and large and small groups, Andrea’s theme is always authenticity. For the past five years she has been the host of the AUTHENTIC LIVING SHOW on VoiceAmerica.com, with over 150,000 listeners, having interviewed some of the world’s most profound and prolific spiritual teachers, authors and entertainers, including many who have also been interviewed by Oprah, such as Marianne Williamson, Gary Zukav, Caroline Myss, Dr. Larry Dossey, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Tom Shadyac and many others.

The Book of Becoming: Why Is There Something Rather Than Nothing? A Metaphysics of Esoteric Consciousness by Ronald Alan Meakin (Author)

‘Why is there something, rather than nothing?’ From the ancient text found on The Emerald Tablet, the motion implicit in achieving higher levels of consciousness is explored through questions surrounding whether evolution proceeds through natural selection or by controlled design and whether the nature of evolution itself is changing. Along our journey we ask whether Gaia theory can by extended beyond an earthly arena, whether science and religion are really incompatible and how do paranormal experiences, such as clairvoyance, actually arise. Considerations of free will, choice, the nature of time and virtue will lead us to identify the obstacles to be found in the way of our survival and whether, or not, we are capable of developing the means to prevent the extinction of the human race.

Ron Meakin lives in Devon, England, with his artist wife Annie, and has taken up writing since retiring in 2010 from a life in the construction industry. Having always had an interest in esoteric studies, he embarked upon a Theology/Philosophy degree in 2003 followed by a Masters Degree in 2006 at Exeter University, specialising in shamanism, supplemented by travel to parts of the world with a spiritual history.

Soul Secrets: A Spiritual Guidebook to Your “Team” – Angels, Spirit Guides, and Departed Loved Ones by Miki Jacobs (Author)


On our harsh world we often feel scattered, confused, fearful, and alone. But we are not! At every given moment, of every day, throughout our life, we each have our own “Team” of Angels, Spirits Guides, and departed loved ones. A group of powerful and wise spirits who guide and protect us.

This book teaches you how to communicate with them! Despite the common belief that in order for us to communicate with our “Team” we need to be “born” a medium, we don’t! Because like myself, you too can awaken your built-in “sixth sense” and use it to communicate with any of your own Team members and use their power and wisdom in your life.

In “Soul Secrets”, you will learn:
*Each member of your Team and their unique purpose in your life.
*The different signs and other ways in which they communicate with you.
*The necessary spiritual work that will prepare you for communication.
*The various communication techniques.
*How to communicate with them!

Soul Secrets is mainly about the Team concept but it also covers additional important spiritual topics that will help you view your life from the perspective of your soul and not your mind. This is an important spiritual perspective that will change and improve your life.


Miki Jacobs is a psychic, medium, spiritual teacher, and author. She was born in Israel, and grew up in a conservative Jewish home. She served as a Sergeant in the Israeli army for three
years before moving to the United States and starting a business she owned for eighteen years. It was during her time in the business world that her abilities and interest in spirituality rather than religion began to emerge. Both of these defining experiences have had an impact on her spiritual journey.

Interestingly, Miki discovered her gift of communicating with the Spirit World later in her life. These abilities began to emerge in her early 30’s. Miki has lessons and guidance for those who
do not believe they can connect with the Spirit World because they were not “born” with it.
Through her work, Miki teaches people that like her, every human being has the capability within them to raise their vibration to that of the spirits and shows them in a step-by-step manner how to awaken these skills.

Miki also has created her unique spiritual concept of the “TEAM” which is a group of spirits that
each of us has. Our Team includes the Archangels, Guardian Angels, Spirit Guides, and a
Departed Loved One, that surround us throughout our Earthly journey. They are ready to protect, support, and guide us in our everyday lives from birth until death. To compliment her teaching of this concept Miki has authored her most recent book: “Soul Secrets; A Spiritual Guidebook to your Team- Angels, Spirit Guides, and Departed Loved Ones”.

Miki has a powerful connection with spirit. She is able to connect in an instant, which provides her with immediate access to information that allows her to get to the root cause of issues. As a psychic, Miki connects people to their “Team” in the Spirit World and conveys to people helpful and transforming messages about their life and their journey on Earth. As a medium, Miki connects people to their departed loved ones and channels amazing messages of love and hope that prove the continuation of the soul beyond death.

In her work as a psychic, medium, and a spiritual teacher, Miki has given hundreds of amazing readings to clients both in her office as well as over the phone to people around the world. She also present workshops, Lectures, and group readings in the U.S and Israel.
