Natural Abundance

by Owen Waters and Dreama Vance

Nature is a constant reminder of the principle of abundance.

Nature routinely produces more than it needs, thousands of times over. Rather than producing one acorn to grow a replacement oak tree, a mature oak will produce up to 50,000 acorns in a good year, and the tree will keep producing for hundreds of years.

That is the natural way.

Plants produce thousands of seeds in order to guarantee the survival of their species.

That is the natural way.

palmseedsAs just one example, palm trees produce thousands of seeds per year.

When Infinite Being created the universe, did it stop there? Not at all, it creates as many versions of the universe as are needed so that all possibilities of existence can be experienced.

That is the infinite way.

Limited thinking makes people believe that resources are limited, that there is only “so much” available. While this appears to be true at the time, it ignores the fact that you can create new abundance in many ways.

Did the number of horses in the 19th Century limit how easily people can travel today? Not at all. The car was invented, along with today’s 200-horsepower engines.

Did the cost of a large business computer in 1970 limit how much computing power we have today? Not at all. The personal computer changed all that. Today, home computers are far more powerful than the largest business computers were in 1970.

Trip to Mars?

MarsDid the cost of flying into outer space in the 1960s limit people’s ability to go on tourist trips to Mars today? Well, okay… more work needs to be done on that one!

Since nature is so abundant, how can people tap into that abundance and create it in their own lives? It certainly doesn’t happen by making loud demands at a conscious level, or just by wishing, wanting, or hoping. It is human consciousness which creates lack, and it is also human consciousness which creates abundance.

If it is human consciousness that is doing the creating, then why isn’t everyone creating abundance, joy, and peace?

There are principles involved in how we create. Can you write them down on a piece of paper?

One of the main teachings of metaphysics is that you create your reality. The question is, HOW are you doing it? Even though you may believe the former, do you understand the latter?

We are constantly creating.

So, how exactly are we doing this? Most of us are not sitting on the couch “mentalizing” a red sports car – or whatever – for 8 hours a day. There has to be more involved than just visualizing, and there is!

On our new course, Creating Abundance: Living Life to the Fullest, you will learn how the process works. In addition, we are taking things to the next level – the forms of fourth-dimensional consciousness that support the conscious creation of a better life and a better world.

For the powerful new principles we will reveal in January 2020, be sure to sign up for our Creating Abundance course.

The Power of Your Inner Being

by Owen K Waters

There is a power within you which very few suspect.

While your “outer self” – your daily waking consciousness – is focused upon the external world, your inner being encompasses all aspects of your consciousness. Your inner being includes your outer self, your subconscious mind, and all the other, so-called “unconscious” parts of your mind that psychologists have tried to identify.

Your inner being is your complete consciousness. It is all of the “separate” parts of your consciousness in one unified package. Your inner being is also your soul – the real you, the complete you. It has also been referred to as your “higher self” because, compared to the consciousness of the outside world, most of your inner being operates at a higher frequency of consciousness. It manages many essential functions for you while your outer self focuses upon the experience of life in the external world through your five senses.

As members of the human race, we are spiritual adventurers who have projected ourselves into a physical realm in order to experience an intense focus of consciousness. Our purpose in the physical realm of consciousness is to gain a sharply-defined sense of identity and then to expand our awareness into heart-centered consciousness and beyond.

These stages of consciousness are reflected in the human chakra system, which is a set of gateways of consciousness between you and the outside world. The main portion of Western society today functions at the level of the solar plexus chakra, which emphasizes intellectual and technical development. Then, there is an ever-increasing body of people who function at the level of the heart chakra. These leading-edge people spend much of their time functioning through this holistic and integrative chakra. Here they learn how to be heartfelt and then – the next stage – heart-powered in their consciousness.

Through meditation, spiritual pioneers go further still and activate the throat chakra, which is the center of powerful creativity. It is also the level of consciousness where your soul or inner being is based. This higher frequency of consciousness carries with it an enormous power to create any reality that you need in order to realize your potential in life.

While the consciousness of the heart chakra is more expanded than that of the solar plexus chakra, the throat chakra is even more expanded still. Your inner being’s field of perception and influence reaches out to include many functions and abilities which are mostly dormant in the daily consciousness of the outer self. These include:

• An intuitive awareness of situations, one which sees deeply beneath any surface appearances.

• Spiritual connection. Your inner being is your personal connection to Infinite Being.

• Connection to the universe as a whole. Your inner self has the capability to be aware of anything that happens anywhere in the universe. It can also reach out to communicate with the inner being of anyone who has the answer to something which you seek to solve. It then feeds that information into your outer self’s focused segment of consciousness through intuition and dreams.

• The inner senses. These are inner versions of the outer senses. Inner sight is the sense that sees the subtle energy effects produced by fields of consciousness, such as, for example, human auras. Inner hearing provides empathic and telepathic communication with others as needed. Inner touch reveals the past history and associations of physical objects. Inner taste and smell provide an awareness of the subtle energies emanating from substances.

Imagine having access to all of these abilities! With them, you could sail through life, experiencing true joy, continually discovering and expressing more of your true potential in life.

These inner abilities do not have to be developed within your daily consciousness. You already possess them at the level of your inner being. You need only practice regular communication with your inner being in order to gain from this unlimited source of wisdom, insight and creativity. Tune into your inner being through

(a) regular, daily meditation, and

(b) by being receptive to the “still, small voice within” of your intuition. The more you pay attention to your intuitive insights, the more you realize how profoundly correct they are.

When you align with your inner self, your true potential begins to manifest and miracles begin to happen in your life!

How the Conscious Universe Works

by Owen Waters

“The universe only exists when you are observing it,” or so the popular theory goes.

This theory is an offspring of quantum physics. It says that, because the observer affects the outcome of experiments, the observer is key to reality. The theory goes on to suggest that the universe only exists when you look at it; therefore you must be creating the universe from your consciousness.

This is actually not a new idea. The old Zen riddle, “If a tree falls in a forest with no one to hear it, then does it make a sound?” reflects the same style of thinking. It suggests that nothing happens in the universe without an observer being present.

There is some validity to this theory in that, at the deepest level of consciousness, you are Infinite Being. At that deepest level, you are that which creates the entire universe, and that which maintains it in motion. However, at the everyday, human level of consciousness, the universe exists and runs quite happily without human intervention, whether or not anyone is watching it. The tree makes a noise when it falls, whether or not any human observers are present at the time.

Take, for example, the Pleiades, the star cluster which is also called the Seven Sisters. Often, on a clear night, you can see the Seven Sisters twinkling in the sky, even though they are five hundred light-years distant. Because of that distance, you are actually observing where the Seven Sisters were five hundred years ago. It took that long for the light image to reach your eyes. Basically, you are observing history in the night sky, not the actual, current position of the stars.

If you were creating the universe by virtue of being its observer, as the theory goes, then you would actually witness the Seven Sisters in their current position, and not in the position that they were five hundred years ago.

The idea that we live in a conscious universe has been gaining ground steadily for a number of years. The conscious universe is much more than a universe which is simply self-aware. The fabric of the universe is consciousness. The universe consists entirely of consciousness. The objects in the universe are all made of consciousness. Everything in the universe is fabricated from aspects of original consciousness, interwoven and set into motion.

The chair on which you sit appears to be made of physical material. It has the appearance of a solid object that exists somewhere outside of yourself. However, physical matter is composed of subatomic energy particles, and energy, in turn, is composed of compressed consciousness. So, the chair is made up of 100% consciousness. It only appears to be a separate object outside of you because it is a projection of consciousness within consciousness.

Physical objects have their own specific locations in space. Space, however, is just a projected illusion, a concept manufactured by consciousness so that the All may be divided into an infinite variety of apparently separate parts.

Time is also a projection of consciousness. Time is a concept whereby the infinite parts of the All can engage in the appearance of movement. The underlying reality is still the eternal Now and yet time makes change, and therefore an infinite variety of experiences, possible.

An everyday analogy of projected reality is a movie projected onto a screen. You know that the movie is just the projection of a recorded, dramatic scene, but it’s easy to forget that as you become involved in the unfolding drama. The movie appears like a real-life drama for as long as it absorbs your attention.

Time and space were fabricated within the consciousness of the universe in order to set the stage for life as we know it. Because the universe is made of 100% consciousness, all things are within it, and therefore subjective. Nothing is really “out there,” even though life appears to be an objective experience. All physical reality is a projection within your consciousness, not something outside of, or separate from, yourself.

Each and every object in the universe – a table, a chair, a car, a house, anything – is not only composed of 100% consciousness, it actually IS conscious in its own way!

The Lightworker Enigma

by Owen Waters

If you create your own reality and you don’t want wars, famines and disasters in your world, then why are they still there? You would never create such things in your reality. It’s almost as if negative realities exist to persecute people of good heart!

We know that you can change your life by imagining a better reality and then working toward it. When you use your imagination to create a new reality, then resources come together as if by magic and the universe morphs around you into the desired new set of circumstances. You can keep changing your own life, making it better and better, but that nagging feeling persists that nothing has changed about the bad things that still happen to other people.

You might even learn about world healing and how to send positive energy out into the world. That does help an enormous number of people. With practice, you can elevate your consciousness enough to affect literally millions of people for the better. But the nagging feeling persists that, because you live in a world filled with billions of people, your prayers and your healing efforts only go so far and still the mass suffering goes on in many parts of the world.

To find the answer to the enigma, you would need to go back in time to when you volunteered to help as a lightworker on this earth. That noble decision was made at a soul level long ago. Since then, you and millions of other lightworkers have lived among the mass of humanity making a critical difference to the overall consciousness of life on earth.

With your efforts, along with help from the ascended masters and other higher intelligences such as angels and archangels, the balance of consciousness on this earth has been maintained above the level necessary for the survival of humanity. Without lightworkers, the average frequency of consciousness on this planet would be below the level required for survival.

Humanity receives enormous help from higher intelligences in being able to continue its evolution during this time of The Shift. Despite the overall negative karma produced by the mass of self-seeking people, we are being helped though a transition which is being made as smooth as possible. The idea behind the Cosmic Plan for the enlightenment of humanity is that we should be free to focus on higher transformation and not be distracted by any sudden need for basic survival.

Even though the mindset of the majority of humanity demands the appearance of some severely negative circumstances, it is vital that major disasters be avoided so that humanity can be free to focus on higher transformation and not a basic struggle for survival. It’s a Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs phenomenon; if people are struggling to find food and shelter, they’re not focusing on the actualization of their ultimate potential.

Humanity is here at this time in order to experience The Shift in consciousness to a new and higher level of existence. This is a time of the harvest of souls – a time when people have the chance to graduate from this classroom of earth experience and move up to the next level of evolution.

The more you engage in spiritual practices and in working to make the world a better place, the more you ease the karmic balance of humanity away from the ever-present threat of self-imposed limitation and toward the smooth transition that is required at this critical time in human progress.

The reason that you haven’t been living in a world where peace and harmony rule is that you volunteered to live among people who are struggling to rise above their negativity and free themselves from their spiritual limitations. This is the task you assigned yourself. That’s why you’re in a world that is the way it is. There is no enigma. We are living in the world we chose to help, wars and all.

The good news is that The Shift is leading to the peace and harmony envisioned by all people of good heart. The New Reality is unfolding. The new world is being built, piece by piece, by people of positive vision.

People like you are finding ways to make the world a better place, both by spiritual attunement and by creating physical projects that help others to rise in consciousness in many different ways.

Your Deepest Secret

by Owen Waters

Spiritual seekers or lightworkers see the world through a different lens than the majority of humanity. They know that they have a sense of inner knowingness that is built into their very nature, but its source is clouded in mystery.

They typically remember events from this lifetime which made them feel as though they were different from other people. If they were to recall past lives, they would find that same sense of being different to most other people in those past lives. So, what is it that makes a lightworker different from the mass mindset? Why do they go through life knowing that they might never be comfortable joining in with many regular social activities?

Most lightworkers have been repeatedly reincarnating on earth for thousands of years, always haunted by that knowingness that they are different. It is as if they came from a different time and place in the universe, then volunteered to come here to help raise the consciousness of humanity.

That sense of aloneness in a crowd came with the lightworker package. It is something that they anticipated before they ever agreed to be a part of the ascension of humanity to a higher level of consciousness. The Shift that we are experiencing today is the final stage of several thousand years of critical human evolution.

The silent secret that lives within all lightworkers is that, before they agreed to come to earth and help humanity, they existed in a more advanced culture within God’s universe. That degree of advancement is an integral part of your very soul, your very being. It is not something that can be undone by circumstances in this or any other single incarnation. It is who you are.

Long ago, you mastered all the challenges that people face today in their struggle to find peace and to evolve to a higher state of consciousness. Long ago, you were accustomed to raising your own consciousness into what can be called Soulspace, the realm of the ‘higher self’ aspect of your consciousness.

My latest e-book, The Lightworker Mission: Reconnect With Your Primary Purpose, delves deeply into that exact subject. For more information, visit this page:

How Flow Can You Go?

by Owen Waters

Higher energies cascade like a waterfall throughout the many levels of Creation, available on demand to fill us with inspiration, love and upliftment.

We simply need to tune into those energies to receive their spiritual bounty but, in order to best do that, we need to know something about the design of Creation.

The energies that support life flow throughout the universe. It is the principle of Flow that we must understand in order to avail ourselves of these energies in a powerful and effective way.

Through the use of intention, your mind can attract higher energies into your being. That is half of the necessary process. The other half is to pass these energies on through yourself to a world which desperately needs upliftment.

Then, and only then, you have Flow.

And, when you have Flow, something magical happens.

You would think that giving away the precious energy you’ve just received would leave you empty, devoid of that wonderful energy and standing unchanged by the process. But, that isn’t what happens.

The act of Flow starts an engine of attraction, a vortex that brings ever more sacred energy into your being. As you send this refreshing energy out to the world, the whole process feeds on itself, building in intensity until your system operates at its current maximum capacity.

Like all exercises, practice increases your capacity to handle more of the same. The question then becomes,

How Flow can you go?

Powerful and Effective World Healing

In the quietness of your inner space, spend some time in gratitude for life, nature, the abundant Earth, the life-giving Sun, and the Creator of the universe. Let a sense of gratitude for everything in your life fill your heart and then set an intention for world peace and enlightenment.

With that love energy within you conditioned by the intention for world peace and enlightenment, move that energy out into the global mind belt surrounding the Earth.

The energy responds well to mental pressure provided by intention, so direct it as a beam of white light from your heart chakra [which is an energy vortex positioned outside the body just in front of the breastbone] out into the world. Do this either through visualizing such an energy flow or by stating a mental intention of what you want to be achieved. The energy will follow your direction.

On each in-breath, breathe in energy from the cosmos into your heart chakra. On each out-breath, send it out with love from your heart chakra to the world.

Continue with the following breathing cycle for an initial goal of three minutes. When you get to three minutes, keep going for as long as you feel inspired.

The universe reflects who you are. When you practice healing the world, by automatic reflection, you heal who you are. Any and all issues which have been challenging for you will move closer toward resolution as you help the world in this way.

There’s nothing like starting your day helping to heal the world in these critical days of transformation. It’s one of those things that brightens your day, makes you feel good to be alive, and lets you know that you are taking the type of action that, as a lightworker, you came into this life to perform.

Seven Facets of Spiritual Awareness

by Owen K Waters

Life can be a treadmill of mundane details or it can be an inspiring adventure of uplifting experiences. Through the regular, daily practice of meditation, you can start each day by raising your frequency of consciousness above the mundane, work-a-day level into the spiritual realms of consciousness.

ThreeCandlesHere are seven facets of spiritual awareness which unfold as a result of daily meditation. Any technique will work. The Ultimate Meditation technique is particularly effective.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number One – Flow

A sense of flow attracts synchronicity into your life’s events. This almost magical sense enables you to always be in the appropriate place at the appropriate time in order to gain the most out of the experiences that the complete you, your inner self, planned for this life.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Two – Unconditional Love

You develop a sense of unconditional love for the inner, spiritual essence of all the people that you connect with in your life. Even the difficult people, as they are often holding up a mirror for you to understand an aspect of past habits which, deep down, you would like to examine at this time.

Your sense of unconditional love naturally includes full acceptance of yourself, just as you are, with the personality that you adopted for this lifetime of experience. You can catch those old thought patterns of self-criticism and remember that you live in a universe which is naturally full of love and unconditional acceptance.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Three – Abundance

Accept abundance as the natural flow of the universe. Forget those opinions about there being something wrong with money. It’s a form of energy and the universe is filled with energy. Life gets a lot more convenient when you are abundant. It gets really inconvenient when you are not.

When you follow your innermost joy, you find yourself doing work that you love and find absorbing. When you find your work absorbing, you become very good at it, without feeling that it took a lot of effort to become that highly skilled. When you are good at your work, employers and customers alike hear about you by word-of-mouth recommendation and they seek you out. The more in-demand your services become, the more they are worth. Following your inner joy is the secret to finding and developing an occupation which brings natural abundance.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Four – Intuitive Insight

Both men and women find that, with regular spiritual practices, their sense of intuition develops smoothly and naturally. Soon, your insights grow to become very valuable in dealing with the challenges of life.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Five – Creativity

A growing sense of creativity becomes apparent when spiritual practices become your daily routine. You discover new ways to achieve results because you see situations from a broader perspective.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Six – Wisdom

Advances in spiritual wisdom and understanding come with deep meditation. In meditation, it is important to let distracting, surface thoughts dissipate so that deeper realizations may surface at the time that they are needed.

Spiritual Awareness Facet Number Seven –
Raising World Consciousness

When you detach from worldly concerns and express a higher frequency of consciousness, the conflicts of the lower frequencies of consciousness become automatically healed. When you let go of any form of conflict within yourself, you are able to rise to a higher frequency of consciousness in a state of harmony and balance.

Higher frequencies of consciousness hold a higher power. Not just a slightly higher power. The power ratio of spiritual consciousness to conflict-oriented consciousness is many thousands to one. If you allow balance to enter your life through a spiritual state of consciousness, it will manifest immediately and very powerfully in your daily life. You will also be helping to raise the global consciousness in a very powerful and constructive manner.

Space and Time Travel

by Owen K Waters

Your physical body exists at a specific location in space and time. In order to relocate physically, you have to travel to the new location. Your mind, however, is free to roam to different locations and even to other points in time. In recent decades, Remote Viewing – the mental viewing of remote locations – has been developed into a highly disciplined method of obtaining information from other locations in time and space.

Many people have experienced their own versions of this skill in the form of precognition or deja vu, where scenes that you suddenly recognize in your life are scenes that you had previously viewed while in another state of consciousness.

MysticOwlDeja vu occurs because you, as a soul, pre-planned the major themes of your life before your were born. You chose the time, the place and your parents in order to set a life plan in motion which would explore the desired themes.

Such pre-planning gave rise to the occurrence of related, meaningful events in your life which may have given you the impression that pre-destiny does exist.

To a degree, destiny does exist. The major themes of your life are pre-planned, by you, ahead of time. As you pass through life, certain names, places, people and activities resonate with a certain special-ness in your consciousness. It’s almost as if you knew these events once before, but you can’t quite remember when or where. That is so-called destiny, unfolding into your life along the lines of pre-planned, pre-viewed events.

In the phenomenon called deja vu, this previewing occurred either during your pre-life planning or in a recent, out-of-body, dream-state where, in order to help yourself remain on-purpose, you reviewed the important, upcoming events in your life.

Your soul, or inner self, has the capability, not only to see, but to BE in different locations in space and time. Physical life is a projection of consciousness, which appears to be solid, which appears to be fixed in location, and which appears to run along a linear timeline.

Solidity, space and time are all projections of consciousness in the theater of life. They are nowhere near as fixed as we have been led to believe.

When a particularly vivid example of deja vu occurs, it is not just the recall of a recent dream, it is more likely to be a real-time connection with your inner self – your complete consciousness – when you were planning this lifetime of experience.

Your inner self can look into how a plan of action would work out by connecting with the actual event at the time and space location where the event will occur. It can be a little disorienting to be living your regular life and suddenly have a brief connection with your inner self as it was working through the planning stage of your life many years ago before you were born.

In fact, you can come out of such a contact with your complete, inner self consciousness wondering – just for a split-second – where you are, and what the date is today! Such an experience is an excellent example of the wide-ranging consciousness of your inner self. It has the ability to relocate to and directly experience other locations in space and time.

As you progress in the development of your consciousness you will acquire more and more of the attributes of the expanded consciousness of your complete, inner self. Your daily consciousness is a tight focus, a subset, of your complete consciousness. That daily, waking consciousness is now expanding to incorporate more of the capabilities which you already possess within your complete, inner self.

Now that The Shift to the New Reality is occurring, this type of inner development is accelerating rapidly. As time passes, you will become more and more capable of perceiving other locations in time and space.

The Creation of Evolution

by Owen K Waters

Life is hard. Species can die.

In fact, the human race would have died long ago if it weren’t for the fact that our bodies are designed to adapt to a constantly changing environment.

Evolution could be called adaptation, because the ability to adapt is the one feature that keeps all life upon Earth alive and functioning.

In thfroginhotwatere laboratory, it has been noted that a frog can be heated in a beaker of water to a degree that would normally be fatal, but it remains alive because it has had the time to adapt to the increasing temperature. Had the frog been suddenly exposed to water of such high temperature, it would have been unable to survive.

Charles Darwin, the pioneer of evolution theory, was a trained minister of religion as well as a naturalist. He thought long and hard about releasing his findings about the natural evolution of the species because he was keenly aware of the materialistic element in society which would use this information against religion. He was right, of course.

Others used his work to claim that there was no need for divine selection when natural selection occurs automatically. They have since gone on to claim that all life could have risen from prehistoric sludge completely by accident. What they don’t even begin to explain, however, is the existence of consciousness in all of this.

Consciousness is necessary for natural selection and adaptation to occur. If you move from a hot climate to a cold climate, you will adapt to the new environment, but first you had to have the consciousness to decide upon the move and make the adjustment.

What is consciousness? It is certainly more than a few electrical signals bouncing around inside a brain. Computers can mimic some limited aspects of the brain such as human logic, but they are not self-aware. There isn’t a computer in the world that can think for itself. Computers just follow sets of preset rules, and they do so as quickly as possible.

Behind all forms of consciousness is awareness. A sense of being is fundamental to all life because all life is constructed from consciousness. Even a solid object like a rock is composed of original thought and original feeling set into motion. All of life is contained within the consciousness of the original Creator, including the prehistoric sludge from which the first biological cells were formed.

Materialistic science today is in a cul-de-sac. There is no way forward for branches of science which fail to include consciousness in their theories. Consciousness is the most fundamental aspect of life. You can’t have a universe without it.

Human beings were originally designed and then evolved within the framework of a conscious universe, one created and developed by the original Creator. It took billions of years for planets to form and biological life to emerge and evolve, but remember this: Time is a creation of the Creator.

The Creator does not have to wait billions of years to see a biological process emerge. Everything happens in the Now – just different parts of the tapestry of time, which the Creator sees as a whole.

The whole design, inception, development and evolution of the universe is happening right now, within that overview, as seen by the original Creator. A little tweak here and there along the timeline can produce a perfect rendition of any form of biological life.

Life is too interesting to create in one Big Bang and then just watch it unfold, as if on auto-pilot. Life is a work in progress, a true work of art, and the Creator has the ability to make adjustments at any point along the timelines.

Science today searches for answers, but what it really needs is a valid search path.

Life did not begin by accident. It began by design.

Those branches of science which include the presence of consciousness will find the answers that they seek when they include the existence of original consciousness and intelligent design in their search.

Whole Brain Thinking

by Owen K Waters

Do we still have unimaginable potential just waiting to be unlocked?

When you examine the functioning of the human brain, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”

The human brain includes right and left hemispheres. These operate in different contexts as they perform different functions. In most people, the left hemisphere is primarily detail-oriented, while the right hemisphere is visually oriented and recognizes patterns.

LeftBrainRightBrainThe right hemisphere recognizes the picture, the overview or the context, while the left brain translates that image into words. When you look at a person who seems to be someone you knew a long time ago, you recognize the pattern of that person’s face long before their name catches up. You move in for a closer look, while trying not to stare, and your left brain is thinking, “Oh, that’s um, oh… I’ll never forget, um, what’s-his-name.”

The detail-oriented, left-brain hemisphere provides these functions:

  • Logic.
  • Sequential perception.
  • Rational analysis.
  • Precision.
  • The sense of time passing at a fixed speed.
  • The translation of visual images from the right side of the brain into words.

The pattern-recognizing, right-brain hemisphere provides these functions:

  • Spatial awareness – the ability to imagine, and operate within, three-dimensional space.
  • Whole picture overview – the recognition of patterns of light, sound or thought.
  • Dealing with thoughts in their natural, symbolic form.
  • Artistic ability – visual imagery.
  • Musical ability.
  • Memory.
  • The experience of emotions.
  • The dream state.
  • The reception of intuitive impressions.

In education, the left side of the brain is promoted much more than the right. Much attention is paid to arithmetic and word skills, while art and music receive little, and intuitive development doesn’t get any.

When you drive at a constant speed, your right brain, with its spatial awareness, monitors the road ahead for pattern changes. If you engage in a conversation while driving, using left-brain word skills, and something in the traffic pattern requires your attention, you have to switch your primary focus over to your right brain in order to deal with it. This explains why conversation stops as you attend to making a turn. The turn doesn’t require that much attention, but it does require a whole switch of brain sides, so the conversation stops for that short time.

Music naturally resonates with the right side of the mind. Did you ever sing along with a Golden Oldies song, one that you hadn’t heard for years? Weren’t you amazed at how many of the lyrics you remembered? RecordPlayerHow could you possibly roll out, from memory, line after line of lyrics that you hadn’t heard in years? The answer lies in the right brain, where music is experienced and, also, memories are stored. You never had to use your left brain to laboriously remember the lyrics. When you heard the songs, they played into your right brain and were automatically stored in your right-brain memory, waiting to be recalled, sometimes decades later.

Right-brain development can include artistic and musical ability, which can be used to make your immediate surroundings look and sound beautiful.

To see how art skills turn on the right side of the brain, try drawing a picture of your left hand, only without looking at the paper you’re drawing on. As your right hand draws the outline of your left hand on paper, there will be a point at which your thinking flips over to the right brain. You’ll probably start the drawing in a linear style that prefers simple, straight lines, then suddenly switch to a more complex style that sees all the slight curves and details, appreciates their beauty, and starts to include them.

Quality of life can be enhanced enormously with more right-brain attention. Imagine, the luxury of living in a world where communities are designed to calm your senses and inspire you with the sights, sounds and smells of a beautiful environment.

Your spiritual connection is developed through the right side of the brain. Meditation provides inner peace and the development of intuition, which, in turn, provides necessary insights into your life’s path.

As right-brain activity is enhanced, your normal functioning becomes more whole-brain, and both hemispheres begin to be used in balance. The two hemispheres of the brain are connected by a large band of nervous tissue called the corpus callosum. This connecting band of tissue is larger in women than in men, raising the question,

“What are women known for having more of than men?”

Now, there could be many light-hearted answers to this question – abilities like perseverance while shopping, holding long, meaningful conversations, and – most of all – being able to ask for directions when lost!

However, the biggest difference is women’s intuition. It’s not that men don’t have intuition, it’s just that women tend to have more of it.

In order to develop our latent abilities, and our spiritual potential, we need to feel our way into a deeper experience of that feeling-oriented, right side of the brain, just as we have thought our way into developing the word-oriented left side of the brain.

We need to become more accustomed to using the language of the right side of the brain. The right brain uses symbols and pictures, not words. Symbols can be visual, and they can be complete information packets – thought balls, which are whole pictures containing thoughts and feelings.

To operate in the right brain means to grasp concepts without words, feeling them, knowing them, letting the left-brain logic wait until our sense knowingness has had the chance to become more than it was before.

If you are new to the art of paying attention to your intuition, then you will need a little practice before proficiency is achieved. Your initial attempts may seem like failures, but that’s only to be expected at the outset.

Practice by being receptive to the “still, small voice within” of your intuition. The more you pay attention to your intuitive insights, the more you grow to realize how profoundly correct they are.

Practice makes perfect, and a you’ll achieve good results a lot sooner than you might expect. Just keep track of all your insights and, with a little dedicated practice, you’ll be amazed at their accuracy.
