The Joy of a Soul Connection

by Owen K Waters

When we tune into the soul level of consciousness, we find that there is much more to achieving personal happiness than anything related to external events. Real joy comes from within, from an unending source which is divine in origin.

The creative will of the Divine Father aspect of God merged in perfect union with the everlasting love of the Divine Mother aspect of God together fill the universe with total, unadulterated, blissful joy!

The greatest discovery of a person who regularly practices meditation is that, one day, the door will open to this unending supply of blissful joy. On that day, the spiritual seeker knows, beyond all shadow of any doubt, that God lies silently within all things and all consciousness. We are a part of that Divine Oneness, and it is through the joy of soul consciousness that we realize this connection.

Remember that your soul consciousness is your complete, inner consciousness. Your daily, conscious awareness, on the other hand, is focused on the outside world for a purpose. The true purpose is so that we can find our way back to that from which we came, even though we are spiritually “blindfolded,” so to speak. The game of life on Earth is played so that we can experience the rediscovery of that joyous connection to the oneness from which we originally came.

All the happiness in the world pales in comparison with the supreme joy of that inner connection. Soul-inspired joy is lasting happiness. It has no beginning and no end because it is always there, just as God is always there, within each and every one of us.

From Heart to Soul: The Path to Liberation

by Owen K Waters

Freedom! The eternal cry of the soul.

But, what is the soul? And what does freedom entail?

People often equate heart and soul as the same thing while, in reality, they are distinct and different so it helps to make some definitions. After all, a journey to a new land goes well when it starts with a map and it can falter when no such guide is available.

In these days of The Shift, our physical bodies are being gradually risen in frequency. When the time is ripe, we will physically enter fourth-density existence, a higher realm where heart-centered consciousness is the basis of all thought.

In today’s third-density world, ambition for the self often takes precedence over the good of the many. In the emerging heart-centered consciousness, however, one’s effect on others is given every consideration and win-win situations are sought.

As the heart opens further, the door opens to spiritual awakening. Once spirituality enters the perspective, it becomes obvious that the primary objective of the human experience is that of spiritual growth. Even though, at a soul level, each person has a unique set of objectives for their life, the underlying primary purpose of all human life remains the same – that of spiritual growth.

While spiritual awakening occurs in the developed stage of heart-centered awareness, the very next step brings enormous enlightenment through an awakening of contact with the soul level of consciousness.

Your soul is based in the fifth-density, or throat chakra, level of consciousness. It is also present at all times in every other level of your consciousness, including day-to-day physical awareness, but people rarely turn within to pay it much attention during a busy day.

Within your soul are the memories of everyone you have ever been, of every experience you have ever had, and the plan you outlined for this life before it began. Life plans are continually managed at a soul level because they need adjustments to stay on track despite changing circumstances.

A life plan is a map of intended destiny, but it needs constant adaptation and the physical mind is helped through intuitive inspiration from the soul. The more in-touch you are with your inner being, the easier it becomes for you to stay on track with your own life plan.

As you encourage your own soul awareness, you become closer to mastering all that physical life has to offer and closer to completing your own cycle of reincarnation. When you rise above the need for further reincarnation, you move into the soul realms and operate from there with all the freedoms that come with such an unlimited existence.

As a soul, you are then able to move across space and time at will, as easily as the hands of a pianist running up and down a keyboard. You exist in a world of beauty, filled with endless hues of color and inspiring harmonic sounds. Your connection to the divine is open and this fills you with constant joy. Your soul family – hundreds of other souls that you love the most – can be in touch with you at any time you wish. There is no loneliness in such a connected and supporting world.

You learn the deeper mysteries of life without having to pursue any of the needs and duties that now take up so much of your time in the physical world.

The ultimate journey from the heart to the soul can start now with a determination to develop your own soul awareness while in your physical body and to take rapid strides toward the liberation that awaits us all.

It is your progress into higher consciousness while living in a physical body which counts more than anything in the grand scheme of things.

The Lightworker Objective

by Owen K Waters

We are in the midst of a revolution in consciousness which is affecting everyone. Even the most staunch traditionalists in society are being dragged into a vortex of ever-increasing change.

The 80-20 rule states that 80% of any change is typically caused by 20% of the people. The 20% consists of the leading thinkers of the day.

In spiritual matters, these leading-edge people are sometimes called lightworkers or old souls, indicating that they have learned more from their experiences through many incarnations. This advanced learning is stored as wisdom in their souls and they benefit from it consciously through intuitive inner guidance.

Today’s leading-edge thinkers planned ahead to be incarnate at this time in history to help make the essential positive changes in society possible. Social science has now begun to recognize them as a major group in today’s society.

More than 1 in 5 adults have made a shift

A survey in the 1990’s by researchers Paul Ray and Sherry Anderson found that 26 percent of American adults had become what they termed Cultural Creatives. Over fifty million Americans now fit the definition of a newly emerging type of humanity that has made a comprehensive upward shift in worldview, values and way of life. In Europe, a 1997 survey conducted in fifteen European countries showed figures that are very similar to the United States.

So, in a social setting the term ‘leading-edge thinker’ actually applies to more than 20% of the people today. Most of them don’t think of themselves as leading edge, nor do they typically realize how many other people are just like them.

The term ‘lightworker’ is synonymous with ‘spiritual seeker.’ You may or may not think of yourself a lightworker but, if you’re reading this, then you fit the definition perfectly.

The two categories of Cultural Creatives identified by Ray and Anderson fit exactly into the consciousness patterns of lower and upper fourth density. While our physical bodies are currently located in upper third density, our minds are free to soar through heart-centered fourth density and into fifth-density soul consciousness.

When a person moves from the third-density function of developing basic intellect into lower fourth density, their worldview expands and they become more aware of the needs of society. They take into account the local and global effects of their own actions and the actions of others that they support. Environmental, organic and peace-making concerns all come under this frequency band of consciousness.

Then, as outlined in my book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, when people move from lower to upper fourth-density consciousness they pass through the gateway of the heart. This brings them into the first level of spiritual awareness and they become more concerned with inner development and enlightenment.

Leading thinkers are simply people whose normal frequency of consciousness is higher than average. The higher your frequency, the greater your awareness and the greater your ability to lead change by showing others how to resolve the challenges in life.

Freedom from control issues

Two popular issues today are control issues and self-empowerment. People who were raised to feel the need to be in control are now recognizing that this was just another form of fear which has no substance in reality.

Reality comes from your soul’s intuitive guidance because, at a soul level, you see everything that you need to succeed and achieve your purpose in life.

The opposite side of the same coin is the issue of self-empowerment, which is learned by people who break free of control by others and establish their own sense of inner strength and self-dependence.

The issue of self-empowerment is being explored at a societal level as well as an individual level. Every person who begins to realize that they are being deliberately disempowered and turns off the fear-inducing news broadcasts leads the world another step towards liberty from the chains that are designed to bind people to a life of servitude. Thanks to the awakening of lightworkers and leading thinkers, the world is waking up to a whole new standard of personal power and dignity.

Lightworkers often choose to experience major challenges in their lives, not because they need the experience, because they have mastered those challenges in previous incarnations. Instead, lightworkers choose to experience challenges because other people need leading thinkers to show them how to resolve these issues. The more the leading-edge people succeed in resolving these issues, the easier it becomes for the rest to follow.

There is a global mind atmosphere or ‘mind belt’ of human consciousness around the planet. You are subconsciously linked with the mind belt 24 hours a day. It affects you and you affect it. Your contribution to the mental and spiritual health of the world is made every second of every day.

The Lightworker Objective is to be a pioneer in the advancement of consciousness, often adopting certain challenges in order to work through them and, by doing so, creating a pattern in the mind belt to make it easier for others to follow.

If you are currently working through a major life challenge and feel as though you’re going round in circles and getting nowhere, STOP and look for the gift in that challenge.

The gift is that, by loving yourself and others more, you can rise above the challenge and become more of who you really are. Then, the experience changes from one of challenge to one of self-empowerment.

Real strength does not lie anywhere in the outside world. It lies within you. Once you find that inner power, you rise above any limitation and stand as a self-realized leading thinker in a world desperate for spiritual freedom.

The Shift To a Heart-Centered Culture

by Owen K Waters

Since the 1960s, a massive shift in consciousness has brought sweeping changes to society. Wouldn’t we all like to know where this is heading? And, what will tomorrow’s world look like?

The answer emerged as long ago as the 1960s, when a pioneering social scientist called Clare Graves was studying the phases of conscious evolution that society has gone through over the ages.

His studies led him to declare that humankind is preparing for what he called a momentous leap – a mega-change within society which would dwarf all previous changes, because it would open up a whole new tier of evolutionary changes.

In 2005, I published a book called The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness which pointed out that these stages of social evolution agree perfectly with the human chakra system. The key to matching these two systems lay in pointing out the little-known fact that there are two phases to each of the major chakras – a yin and a yang phase.

The yin phase is where people begin to explore the new frequency of consciousness and the expanded worldview which it offers. Then, they graduate to the yang phase, where they master the new chakra and use their new ability to create effective action which changes their world for the better.

For example, society spent much of the 20th century mastering the solar plexus chakra. This resulted in the development of intellect, along with science, technology, and all the wonderful gadgets that we enjoy today.

In the late 20th century, it became more and more obvious that many people were taking the next step and developing heart-centered consciousness. The activation of the heart chakra brings an awareness that the good of the many is an important concern and that cooperation can produce more for everyone than competition ever did.

Heart-centered consciousness brings an expanded worldview where issues like sustainability, human rights, and the freedom to develop your own potential come to the fore. These issues simply don’t exist in the solar plexus world of ambitious intellect. But, in a heart-centered world, they become very much a part of the landscape.

What happens, you might ask, when many more people take this even a step further and move from the yin or introductory phase into the yang phase of the heart chakra? Then, they will master this new, expanded level of consciousness.

The active or yang phase of heart-centered consciousness is where unconditional love begins to flow through the person. At first, it may seem like a mystery where these higher sentiments are coming from, but eventually the awakening person realizes that this is simply the nature of the universe.

If this sounds like a spiritual awakening, that’s because it is. The higher aspect of the heart chakra is the launching pad for an appreciation of the spiritual nature that exists behind all physical manifestation.

Despite what you were taught as a child, this is not a hostile universe. It is benign through and through. The sense of unconditional love that you feel as you settle into heart-centered consciousness is not generated by wishful thinking… you are sensing the energy that forms the very fabric of the universe!

Belligerence is a man-made illusion. It is a divergence from the true nature of the universe. The universe is essentially a loving and supportive place. We just have to channel that feeling of unconditional love into our lives and the world will change beyond recognition.

You can take an active, leading part in The Shift. Develop your heart chakra by knowing that this is the destiny of humanity, that the universe is benign, and that you can tap into its endless supply of unconditional love. Allow yourself to be filled with this infinite supply of love and then become more deeply aware of your own unique role in changing today’s world for the better.

The more you become accustomed to heart-centered awareness, the more you become one of the True Hearts who, right now, at this very moment, are pioneering a New Reality on Planet Earth.

Spiritual Faith

by Owen K Waters

With spiritual faith, your heart and mind open up and guide you in your search for personal truth. Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

sunsetoverseaFaith may sound like a form of belief, but belief is actually a fixation upon a version of the truth. When a belief becomes rigid, seeking and growth are not possible. For example, the biggest challenge facing quantum physics today is the enormous shift that is required from previous beliefs about the nature of reality. Researchers have to shift to a new view where time, space and physicality are liberated from the constraints which people previously believed that they had.

If you believe that you exist in a fixed location in space and that time must always pass you by like clockwork, think again. Subatomic particles do not share your beliefs about time and space. They take a much more liberated view. Subatomic particles pop in and out of physical manifestation millions of times per second, just when and where they feel like it. Their disregard for time is perplexing, to say the least, as they respond immediately to events in their future and even time travel backwards to alter their past when it suits them.

Now, we can all identify with the idea of creating a different future based on decisions that we make now, but creating a different past? Well, that’s what subatomic particles do, right there in the lab. As a result, in the mathematics of quantum physics today, one of the necessary tools is negative time – the ability of a particle to send a message into its past in order to change its own history.

Subatomic particles are friendly by nature. When they bump into another particle that they take a liking to, and they seem to like all of them, they become friends and carry on communicating with each other, for ever. The fact that they may become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate.

The speed of their communications comes as a surprise. Einstein said that nothing exceeds the speed of light, but apparently subatomic particles weren’t listening when he said that. They communicate over huge distances virtually instantly. If there is a limit to the speed of transmitted thought, then that speed of thought has to be millions of times faster than the speed of light.

Subatomic particles, by their very freedom, serve to remind us of our true potential as conscious beings in a conscious universe. We are limited only by our personal collection of beliefs, our belief system. We also share our part of a larger, societal belief system, the consensus reality.

Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.

With spiritual faith – an open heart and an open mind – we can discover more about today’s New Reality and what it means to humanity. Discovering more about life expands our view of reality and evolves our belief systems.

Besides, and this is what really counts, it’s fun!

It’s a Great Time to be Alive!

by Owen Waters

The Shift is the mass migration of humanity into the second tier of consciousness. This is where basic values transform into spiritual values, where caring hearts blossom forth into action to help humanity in ways that represent their personal, highest joy.

Millions of pioneering trail-blazers have already made it through The Shift and into the new awareness. Every day, more people follow their example. The New Reality presents a newly emerging type of humanity. This vanguard of unconditional love and renewed hope holds the seeds of a culture where ‘quality of life’ replaces ‘standard of living’ and ‘you-and-me’ cooperation replaces ‘you-versus-me’ competition.

The world is transforming; destiny is calling. Together we are witnessing the dawning of the New Reality as it rises in all of its glory, like the Sun rising at the dawn of a bright, new day.

The New Reality is both heartfelt and heart-powered. It’s about people who care. But people can only awaken to their new, expanded potential when they realize that this potential exists.

Tell your friends that the world is shifting to a new reality and that it is destined to become a truly beautiful place.

To step forward into New Reality consciousness means to experience new vistas of awareness and new levels of creativity. It means following your heart to express your inner joy through making your own meaningful contribution towards the betterment of the world.

It truly is a great time to be alive!

Creating Good Karma

by Owen K Waters

There are two ways that humankind can address the mission of finding its way back to the divine source from which we came. We can stretch this mission out to be long and laborious, or with a little forethought, we can make it relatively easy. The choice, as individuals, is ours.

All life operates within the Principle of Reflectance, which guarantees that a universe which is set into motion will always remain in perfect balance. The Principle of Reflectance is often called, and often misunderstood as, the “Law of Karma.”

The Principle of Reflectance simply states that every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. It’s that simple. It’s not a judgment about anything. It just states that every thought, every feeling, and every deed causes the potential for its equal to be reflected back into your life. This is how you continually create your own reality.

Karma is the natural result of the fact that thoughts are creative. Of course they are. We are designed to be powerfully creative.

When you create a belief or an expectation, you attract energy and circumstances that will reflect your creation back to you. This is how we learn through experience.

The idea that karma can be judgmental in nature seems to spring from the idea that God will judge you after you leave this world. However, thanks to today’s many volumes of independent research into what actually happens in afterlife experiences, we now know that there is no judgment by God or any being outside of yourself. Pioneering researchers such as Michael Newton and Dolores Cannon have compiled thousands of cases to show that what does happen in the afterlife is a review which is conducted by you as your soul consciousness.

This review is not judgmental at all. It’s just a review, the same as any review that comes after the completion of a project. The tone of the review is loving, supportive, and insightful. Through this process, you are able to see how you learned more about the dispensation of love and service to others in this life. Through this process, you begin to see ways that you could learn even more about love and service when your time comes to next reincarnate.

Helping others through love and service is the key to sure spiritual advancement in today’s emerging New Reality.

The Principle of Reflectance states, quite simply, that what you put out comes back. Or to quote the old adage, “What goes around comes around.”

This potential energy pattern – your “karma” – is carried like a magnetic influence within your energy field until circumstances make its manifestation possible.

As you will see on our new course, you can determine how life will treat you simply by pre-loading your karmic pattern with the kind of potential which you wish to see manifest.

A Vision of the New Earth

by Owen K Waters

A great shift to a higher consciousness has been accelerating since the 1960s. The progressive portion of humanity is stretching the envelope of human consciousness deep into new territory.

As The Shift progresses over the decades ahead, intuition will bloom and people will begin to notice that their five senses have acquired a new subtlety. The Earth will be seen as more beautiful than ever, filled with subtleties of color and perfumes that were always there and yet were never before detected. The spirit of humanity will be focused on peace and hope for a new tomorrow, which will unfold as if it were the arrival of heaven on earth.

higherconsciousnesslogoTomorrow’s humanity will develop in the direction of cooperation, not competition. People will treat other people as loved ones and as if they were dear family, because they will see the light within each other and know that we are all connected. That which used to be a burden will now become a joy, as people work to help each other and support each other.

Gone will be the old way of focusing primarily upon materialistic gain, because people, being heart-centered, will want everyone to have everything that they need and everything that helps make life a joyful experience.

On the technology front, energy will one day be clean and plentiful after we learn to tap into and convert the life-giving etheric energy that flows from the Sun. Etheric energy has been utilized for thousands of years in non-technological applications under the names chi, prana, and universal life force. It is the primary energy of the Sun, while the more dense electrical energy is a relatively minor secondary energy. Nikola Tesla, the inventor of today’s alternating current power systems, experimented with etheric energy, recognized that it behaved quite differently to electric power, and described it as ‘cold electricity.’

It is less than 200 years since the key principles of electric energy were discovered. When the principles of its big brother, etheric energy, are mastered, the door can potentially be opened to a wide variety of long sought-after technologies. These can include abundant clean energy, gravitational shielding, magnetic space vehicle propulsion, protective force screens, teleportation, and, because etheric energy is vital life energy, a wide array of advanced healing technology.

Eventually, all forms of toxicity will be addressed and remedied. Gone will be thoughtless pollution by toxic chemicals and the smoke of burning fuels. Gone will be the toxicity of human suffering that pollutes the mental atmosphere which we all share. Gone will be the toxicity of fear and all of its disempowering manifestations.

Love will be the way, and The Way will be Love. People will see the God within others and hold a sense of allowance for everyone to pursue their own unique spiritual path. Gone will be the rivalries of small-minded religious factions. The new vision of the nature of God will be universal and all-inclusive.

Gone will be the toxic need to exert control over others, as the fears which cause this will dissolve and softly drift away with the wind.

Humanity will build a world of great beauty in harmony with nature. Nature itself will be honored as a beautiful expression of the Creator. People will give thanks to the consciousness of the Mother Earth which supports us and to the consciousness of the Sun which continually nourishes us with life-giving energy. Most of all, people will give thanks to the consciousness of God for life itself and for the joy that communion with the Divine Spirit brings to our very souls and to our deepest sense of being.

Decoding the Tao

by Owen K Waters

Long ago, the first time I read the ancient Tao Te Ching (pronounced “Dow Day Jing”), I ran into so many apparent contradictions that I felt like I was going cross-eyed with confusion!

I have not been alone in that type of feeling. To most Western minds, the nature of the Tao is a huge mystery that makes little or no obvious sense. I ran into statements that suggested that the Tao was manifest as everything in the world and, yet, the Tao was nothing and nowhere. Well, which is it, I thought, everywhere or nowhere?

The problem lies with the limitations placed on Western translators, as they are part of a cultural tradition which rarely teaches that there is an original state of unchanging, perfect beingness that lies behind even the Creator.

laotse In the 6th Century BC, the sage Lao Tse (“Lay-OTE-say”) is said to have written the Tao Te Ching, which became fundamental to philosophical Taoism. The word Tao is usually interpreted as meaning The Way, although it can also mean The Principle or The Doctrine. However, none of these interpretations address its true nature.

Lao Tse was reluctant to even name the Tao, as giving it a name weakened its basic concept of silent unchangeability, so he actually preferred to refer to it as ‘the nameless.’

There are over 100 translations of the Tao Te Ching in English. One apt interpretation of the meaning of the title is, “The book of the way of Divine inner power.”

Translators to English find themselves forced beyond literal translation and into interpretation because characters written in the original Chinese often have multiple meanings and need to be distinguished in context with one other. Because of this, the original intent of the message may not even be immediately apparent.

For example, they face literal translations of sentences like this:

“Name named not eternal/unchanging name.”

It takes an understanding of the concept first before the meaning becomes clear. This passage points to the concept that the Tao is ‘the nameless’ which encompasses the universe, while the universe itself is filled with what Lao Tse often refers to as ‘the ten thousand things’ or the manifestations of the Tao. We give names to objects in the material world and that which is beyond all things is referred to as ‘the nameless.’

The Tao, by definition, existed before Heaven and Earth. It is said to be still, formless, standing alone and undergoing no change. It is both larger than the largest thing and it is within the smallest object.

The part that really trips Western translators up is the idea that the Tao is simultaneously perfectly still and yet constantly moving. Ideas like this are confusing enough to stop a logical mind, short-circuit some brain cells, and make smoke start to curl slowly up out of a person’s ears!

steam-out-my-earsIn Western culture, we generally lack an appreciation of the original nature of God as unchanging beingness. In our action-oriented culture, we think of the Creator as the One God. Typically, unless you studied Eastern philosophies or some branches of metaphysics, then you were never made aware of the state of beingness which is behind even the One Creator. The Tao is the unchanging, perfect consciousness which is behind all things. The Tao is pure, tranquil beingness, and it formed the Creator as the aspect of itself which would take action and experience change.

Taoism is not alone in studying the original, unchanging beingness behind all things. The same concept appears in Hinduism as the still, silent Brahman, or Godhead, behind the creative Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

Chapter 42 of the Tao Te Ching gives the Taoist version:

The Tao produced the One.
The One produced the Two.
The Two produced the Three.
The Three produced all things.

This means that the unchanging beingness produced the One Creator. This aspect then saw that it was necessary (using Genesis terminology) to divide the ‘waters’ of its consciousness into two aspects. These different and complementary aspects were the principles of thought and feeling. A third aspect was still needed, which was the principle of motion, which allowed the command, “Let there be light!” to create the original template of the universe. The three aspects of the triune nature of the Creator then worked in harmony to create the universe and all material within it.

Students of modern metaphysics are familiar with the concept of a beingness which is behind all things. It has been referred to as the Absolute, the Isness, the ‘I Am’ Presence, and ‘the All That Is which is behind all things.’ My own choice of words is Infinite Being. All of these terms refer to the same perfect, unchanging beingness which is behind everything.

The universe exists within the field of silent consciousness of Infinite Being, so its essence is within everything in the world. That silent Isness is the ground state of consciousness behind all life. Because of its silent, unmoving nature it could be referred to as being ‘nothing and nowhere,’ at least to our physical sense of awareness.

The Creator and its creation exist within Infinite Being. Therefore, Infinite Being is within all things. The unchanging is within everything in the changing world. Yet, our physical senses will never detect this underlying, unchanging oneness. It is only through developing an inner connection that we will discover that which is behind all things.

The Tao is manifest as everything and yet the Tao, in the world of material senses, appears to be nothing and nowhere. So, the message of the Tao Te Ching is to develop an inner connection with that which is real and then the manifest world – this world which is unreal in comparison – begins to make sense.
