The Third Chakra

by Dreama Vance
December 29, 2017

Although we have only worked with the first two chakras so far, if you have been practicing every day, you are developing your skills.

If you need to catch up, go to The Spiritual Gifts and Spiritual Gifts – Part Two… it is REALLY worth it! After practicing those, you will experience these mind and spirit-expanding effects:

1) You can rapidly clear and purify your energy in thought, word, and deed in preparation for your inner work.

2) You can focus your attention and hold it steady.

3) You can experience a state of peace and tranquility as you move into the present moment.

4) You can recognize the Abiding Presence within and realize you are One with this Source energy.

5) You are learning to broaden your inner senses and to observe and notice your experience.

6) You have learned that this energy of existence responds immediately at the energetic level to your intention and focus, e.g. when you hold the intention to allow increased flow in the chakra, you immediately register this in your experience.

The structural design of existence carries three foundational elements. They are not separate, but we will look at them individually as that allows us to study and understand and experience them. The first foundational element we will look at today. Next week, we will discuss the second element and then we will discuss the third element on the upcoming course, Mastering Higher Energies. We are introducing this structure because you are experiencing it in your meditations. In fact, any time you turn your attention to the Abiding Presence, you experience these elements.

Let’s look at the first we will discuss, which is Expansion.

As you recognize the Presence at the start of your meditation, you feel that sense of spaciousness. When you focus on the base chakra, you experience this openness. As you allow the flow to increase, you experience expansion. When you move up to the second chakra, your experience and perception increases. You can perceive and see more. This is expansion.

Expansion is in every particle of existence. The innate nature of existence is expansive.

The energy of existence molds and shapes itself in response to our thoughts, feelings, and conscious and unconscious beliefs. So can this energy of existence “do” contraction? Absolutely! You feel this when fear, doubt, uncertainty present themselves in your experience. Our experience in life is reflecting those thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

However, the energy of existence cannot lose its very nature. Its very fabric is expansive. It will shape itself and mold itself to reveal what we are asking of it, whether consciously or not, but its underlying nature never changes.

As we consciously align with the innate nature of this energy, we move into flow. Through the practice of the chakra meditation we experience and get to know the original nature of this energy.

Any time you must make a decision, you can tune into your inner Self and “try on” the decision. You will immediately feel either expansion or contraction. Expansion brings you into alignment with your true nature, which is the energy of existence. If you feel contraction, then you are asking existence to play a role, which it willingly does! Our goal, however, is to live allowing our true nature and consequently the true nature of existence to express through and as ourselves.

THE EXERCISE

As we move up the spine to the third chakra, you can notice the sense of spaciousness and openness as you work with each chakra and observe your experience.

The third chakra is along the spine at the level of the navel. It is appropriately called the solar plexus as it appears as a yellow ball just like the sun. This is our thought center and also the center of our personal power.

Follow your meditation techniques, clearing and moving into meditation, then working first with the base chakra, then moving to the second – the emotional center – then the solar plexus.

At each chakra focus your attention on the energy ball. Observe your experience. Feel the pulse of energy. Increase the flow with your intention. Observe and notice your experience. Feel how you are carried on waves of energy. Notice the expansion. Notice how the energy feels bigger. Notice how your thoughts become peaceful and free of stress at the solar plexus chakra.

Keep notes on your experiences.

The first three chakras are the physical expression of our human existence. You can easily see how when Spirit comes into the body as a baby, the energy is focused at the base chakra, where survival is key. The energy is “learning” to stay in physical form.

The second or emotional chakra, is the next step as the energy learns to connect with others. Once survival is mastered, the energy can move out to explore and interact with others. At the third level or chakra, also called willpower or ego, energy learns to control and manipulate its environment.

As we work with these three chakras and allow Spirit to express through them, you see how the body gains vitality, our emotions are calmed and balanced, and our thoughts are made easy and peaceful. These are some of the gifts of Spirit.

By next week, if you do your daily practice, you will be ready for the wonderful discoveries experienced at the heart chakra and the higher spiritual energies we will cover in the upcoming course, Mastering Higher Energies. I hope you join us on this course as we explore and expand our consciousness together!

Joy to the World

by Dreama Vance
December 24, 2017

How much joy can you contain? Do you think you can hold so much joy that you reach the point of bursting open? Would you then be like a supernova? NASA may not agree, but I like to think of stars bursting into a supernova because of added light, but what if they burst from joy and all of that light is emitted? Can you see yourself this way?

From where does this kind of joy materialize? How can you find it? Is it something given only to a few? Are there answers to these questions? Are we designed to spend our lives searching for this kind of joy? Do most people never find it? Is it even something we want, or is it best just to settle for the status quo?

What if everyone had this ecstasy and lived their life in this state of joy? What would the world be like? What would you be like and where would you go from there? What comes after joy?

Did you know you are birthed into creation each moment? I know, it is almost impossible for us to wrap our brains around that concept, but it is true. We come from the eternal Now… only Now. Since this is true (no matter how difficult it is to understand) it makes you wonder why we are lugging around all the baggage of the past that we carry with us. Why do we carry all the fears and worries of the future with us? Just thinking about setting all of those bags down makes you feel lighter already, doesn’t it?

Do you think joy comes from living in the present moment? Well, maybe. Although I think it is more likely the first attribute you will find by residing in the present moment is peace.

I have another answer for joy. Joy comes from the Spirit. It is wrapped in love and gifted to you when you awaken, not to who you are (Surprise!) but to why you are here.

Now most of us think we are here to grow spiritually, to remember our connection to Source, to raise our vibration, to become Enlightened, and so on and so on. All of that is true. But I have to tell you, I have seen a lot of unhappy people doing this. (Shh, don’t tell.)

Okay, before I say this, I just want you to know I can hear you groaning when you read this next part, so please persevere. It gets better, I promise.

We each have a spiritual mission to perform (maybe more than one during our lifetime). Our spiritual mission is our gift to the world.

It is true some people come into the world “gifted”. There are artists, musicians, mathematicians, child protégés. Their gift is visible at an early age.

Then there are the rest of us who grow up, get a job and wander through life wondering, “What is my purpose?” You actually are here to provide a service, not just to “become enlightened”.

The secret to discovering your spiritual mission, if you have not found it yet, is found in the paradox. When you discover your spiritual mission, you will discover the gift of joy. Paradoxically, what brings you joy, what your passion is, what you spend your free time doing, what you love to do, IS your spiritual mission. It has been a thread running through your life. Look and find it.

It is so simple and so easy. It isn’t complicated, so don’t make it so. It really is right under your nose. Perhaps you have always loved to build things and always have a project under construction at home. Maybe you love to make up stories for little kids. Maybe you love to be in the kitchen making delicious food. These are gifts. If they light you up and bring you joy, they are your spiritual mission! They don’t have to be earth shattering. They do have to bring you joy. When you discover what it is, you will be filled with joy. You will laugh and say, “But I have always loved doing that!”

Do you know, there are actually people who love to clean? What a gift! Some people actually like to organize things and are good at it. Whatever your spiritual mission is, you will already be good at it, because it is a part of you. It depicts your interests and consequently the skills you have developed over time.

When you find your spiritual mission, find a way to bundle it so that you can give it to the world. Start by giving to neighbors and local communities. Watch it grow. Begin to teach others how to do what you do. There are myriad ways to share your gift.

Once you discover your spiritual mission, make it a focus in your life. Begin to share and be of service to the world. When you do this, you allow Spirit to move out through you into the world and your joy will be boundless.

At the start of the article I asked, “What comes after joy?” All of the gifts of Spirit will begin revealing themselves when you begin giving in joy and fulfilling your mission. It will be like you opened the floodgates for Spirit to pour forth into the world.

Give your gift to the world. The world is waiting for you to become a supernova!

Spiritual Gifts – Part Two

by Dreama Vance
December 22, 2017

Since Part One of this article, you have been working the past several days with just the base chakra. By now you will be familiar with the concept of holding your attention steady. You can stay focused on the energy center.

Isn’t there a sports phrase, “Keep your eye on the ball”? You have learned to keep your attention on the red ball of energy at the base of the spine. At the same time you have allowed your inner senses to move outward, noticing and observing your experiences.

Did you notice how easy it was to open and expand your base chakra? You didn’t have to turn cartwheels or use a dowsing crystal to open your chakra. All you had to do was use your intention and allow it to happen. The energy of existence is immediately responsive.

When this flow increased, you were able to notice differences in your experiences. Yes? The color is deeper, brighter. You feel uplifted. The light is clearer. Whatever your experience is, you are getting familiar with observing and noticing with your inner senses and with holding your focus steady.

THE SECOND CHAKRA

Bring these skills to the second chakra which is halfway between the base chakra and the waist. All of the chakras are in a vertical line. The first five major chakras are along the spine with the 6th and 7th chakras in alignment in the head. If you looked at a person from the side, the centers would be in a straight line. So the second chakra is right in the flat of the back between the base chakra and waist. It is a beautiful sunset orange glow.

It is our emotional center and is the energy that allows our connection with others.

THE EXERCISE

As you do your prep work and exercise from the first lesson, after you work on the base chakra, move your attention up from the base chakra to the second chakra. Holding your attention on the orange glow, feel, sense, and observe the energy. Notice the quality of this chakra. It has a feeling state to it. Notice how it soothes and evens out your experience. Notice that you can perceive more and, therefore, see more at this level.

Now with your intention, allow the flow of energy to increase to its maximum level.

Again notice and observe your experience.

Jot down notes of your experience so you can see your progress as we continue up the chakras. Each day practice your work with the base chakra and then move up to the second chakra. This will only take a few extra minutes because you are already in your meditation.

We are laying the foundation for you to develop your skills at reading and sensing the different frequencies. Just practice for a short period everyday. Stay in a relaxed state as you notice and observe. Keep your focus steady but don’t strain. You want to be focused, but relaxed and alert. Ask the masters, your angels, your guides for assistance. It is always freely given.

Next week we will cover the third chakra and I will identify one of the structural foundations of existence which you are experiencing as you do these meditations. By then you will have a bit more experience observing in the meditations.

You see, the chakras transmit the flow of Universal energy into the physical body. Each center contains a partial set of frequencies that rise in vibration as we move up the body. Together they form the collective energy of Source so the body can access the full spectrum.

The most important thing that is happening in these meditations is you are experiencing the nature of existence itself. You can read this article and a thousand other articles but it is the actual experience — what you are sensing and observing and coming to know about existence and its nature through your experience of it that actually transforms our lives. This is why doing the exercise is so important.

I have been doing the entire chakra meditation with you every day and it is incredibly powerful and beautiful. As we move up into the higher chakras you will see and understand more, of course! Your skills will develop. I love what I am receiving through the meditations and you will, too.

Please do join us on the upcoming course. Our Mastering Higher Energies course is beginning soon. If you haven’t already registered for this groundbreaking course on higher energies, be sure to check out the details at:

The Spiritual Gifts

by Dreama Vance
December 10, 2017

Did you know that one of the best spiritual practices you can do is to “work” with your energy centers on a daily basis?

I am sure you are familiar with the seven major energy centers of the body, also called chakras. There are other smaller centers around the body and larger centers outside of the body. For our purposes we are going to focus on the seven major ones.

Many of you are advanced in your studies and you may think this is too elementary for you. I think, however, that when you begin to practice this teaching, you will be amazed at what you experience and, therefore, learn.

Today and on the coming three Fridays you will get a lesson from me. It is my gift to you and will cover the first four major chakras and how you work with them. We will cover the higher chakras in our upcoming course on Higher Energies.

First, let me reassure you that “working with the chakras” is not difficult and will only take five to ten minutes of your time. This is why we start with one chakra at a time. You will do this work in meditation when you are connected to Spirit and in a calm and receptive space.

One of the things that will happen when you begin to work with the chakras is you will develop your abilities to sense and feel the energies. This is soooo important. Each chakra has a different energy range, a different vibrational set of frequencies.

With practice, you will be able to discern these and experience the differences between them. This becomes very advantageous when you reach the spiritual levels of frequency, as they are very rapid. It is our goal to be able to navigate these higher frequencies with ease and to maintain our conscious focus at these higher vibrations and, indeed, these higher states of consciousness.

THE SEVEN CHAKRAS

The seven major chakras are actually transmitters of energy. They each contain a gift from Spirit. You know that you are Spirit in manifested form. Accessing your vibrational frequencies at the different chakra levels allows you to access the different qualities, and attributes of Spirit. These actually are gifts and are given to us. We do not have to “earn” them. They are freely given.

PREPARATION

Allow 5 or 10 minutes for total concentration in meditation. If you need to set a timer, do, so you can be totally relaxed and centered on the exercise. By being totally focused you will be able to sense the very subtle energies. We want to experience these as much as we can. If you have a favorite way to move into a meditational state, use your own method.

It is always a good idea to start any meditation with a clearing exercise. Here is one I like to use. It clears the physical body and consequently, the other subtle bodies as well.

Visualize the Sun above your head and to your right. Then visualize the Moon above your head on the left. The Sun sends a ray of light to the Moon. Then they both send down beams of light that come together into one ray that is sent down into the top of your head. In other words, those three lines of light form a triangle over your head. Bring that light down into your head, down into your body and feel it roll through you like a wave, cleansing away all stress and tension, all mental anxiety and worry. Let it roll all the way down to your toes, into the Earth. The Earth will take that energy and mulch it into clean, renewable energy for the Universe.

THE EXERCISE

Use whatever technique works for you to move into meditation. If you don’t have one, simply follow your breath as you sit quietly, after the clearing described above, and notice a sense of peace and tranquility. Move into the present moment and notice that there is a Presence inside of you, breathing you, beating your heart.

Now move your consciousness to the base chakra, which is at the bottom of the spine. The energy centers are about the size of a lime, although they do expand and contract. The rainbow colors are the most widely used system for the chakras and that is what we will use.

Keep your attention focused on the base chakra. You can visualize the beautiful rosy red color of this energy ball. Notice what you are feeling. Observe. Move out with your inner senses and become aware of this energy. You may feel it pulsing. It has a vitality to it. It is the gateway of life energy for the physical body.

Using just your intention, allow the maximum amount of energy to enter this chakra. Keep your focus and attention on that energy center at the base of the spine. Notice as the energy expands and opens.

You may actually feel the energy boost in the physical body. Just observe.

Notice. Stay focused.

You may want to jot down your observations. This way you can see how you develop your abilities to experience the energy centers.

Practice this short exercise every day. By Friday you will be proficient at beginning to sense energy in the centers. This will develop and your ability will expand as we proceed with the next step.

Many blessings to you!

Believing is Seeing

by Owen K Waters

Today’s massive, ongoing Shift in consciousness is a shift from intellectual awareness to holistic awareness.

Intellectual awareness is a function of the solar plexus chakra, where mental ability is developed in a linear direction. Examples of linear thought include the performing of arithmetic and the operating of machinery. In this mode of consciousness, people have learned to develop a rigid discipline of “seeing is believing” in order to discover what works and what doesn’t.

With holistic awareness, the heart chakra is developed, allowing issues of separation to be resolved and integrated. Holistic awareness means that mind, body & spirit are seen as closely related facets of the human being. This heart-centered awareness is a viewpoint of integration or wholeness which heals the fears and discords that come with solar plexus consciousness.

There is a paradox with moving from linear intellect to heart-centered consciousness. While the intellectual phase of consciousness may say that “Seeing is believing,” the holistic phase requires quite the reverse. In holistic consciousness, opposites are often both true as they are seen as opposite sides of the same coin or as polar opposites of the same issue.

Awareness that is limited to the intellect is subject to issues of separation; of us versus them, of struggling for resources that are perceived as scarce instead of solving the problem of their scarcity. Holistic awareness includes the idea that consciousness creates realities, that something must be created in consciousness – “believed” – before they can become a reality.

So, in holistic consciousness, “Believing is seeing” becomes a statement of truth, even though it is the opposite of “Seeing is believing.” Instead, it adds the understanding that reality is created by consciousness. We are not merely observers of what is. We create what is.

Traditionally, people have entered a realm of holistic, heart-centered awareness when they pass on from this life. In the afterlife, their task is to heal the fears and hates of their physical lives and transform them into love and forgiveness, thus integrating themselves with others, rather than feeling separate from them.

Today, due to The Shift, more and more people are embracing holistic, heart-centered consciousness while still alive in physical bodies. As the heart is also the gateway to spiritual consciousness, this global movement is producing a revolution in spiritual unfoldment.

Spiritual consciousness is flowering in the global consciousness of humanity as The Shift progresses. Today’s pioneers in consciousness are people just like yourself. They are exploring the new territory of unconditional love and experiencing a reunion with their own inner, spiritual connections.

The higher aspect of heart-centered consciousness is fully connected to your inner being, or soul. Your inner being is fully connected to the consciousness of the universe and to that which created the universe. Infinite Being is within each of us. We are Infinite Being.

The daily focus that we apply to our five senses and their connection to the outside world is just like performing a part in a play. We act out the part of being us, along the general theme of the type of events that we planned for this life. We ride along through the journey of this life, gaining the type of experiences that we planned to gain.

When you open up to your heart, and through that, reconnect to your own spiritual source, then you have become a part of the very future of humanity.

The Shift is heading towards a world where unconditional love and acceptance is normal, where strife is relegated to the distant past, where the true potential of human beings can express itself in the daily joy of being all that you are.

The Shift: The Time Is Now

by Dreama Vance

Listen. Do you hear it? It is like the flutter of tiny wings in your heart. It is calling to you.

It calls so softly. Is it more a feeling? A rhythm that pulls you, do you hear it? You hear it in your soul, the inner Self. It is who you really are. You cannot deny it, because it is you. When you hear it, that soft flutter, you respond.

Your heart yields to the call. It is the clarion call. You have heard it before and you have responded. Long before your first incarnation on this beautiful planet, you heard the call. Love poured forth from you. “Yes,” you said. “Yes.”

Through many lifetimes, hardships and challenges in the valley of forgetfulness, we have continued to endure and respond with “Yes.”

Now is the time. You can hear the call again. You remember. You awaken. “Oh, yes!”, you cry as you embrace that remembered moment. You remember the love that flooded your being. You remember the joy of answering the call to be of service. “Yes,” you said, “a thousand times, yes!”

Now is the time you can hear the call again. “Rise up! Now is the time!” For so long we have waited. But now we hear the clarion call, awakening us to ACTION. We are being called so clearly, so insistently, to action. NOW IS OUR TIME. TAKE ACTION NOW. Embrace freedom.

Let Life flow through you. Awaken to God within you. See God all around you. Embrace freedom as you change your life and show others how to change theirs. Use your gifts. Fulfill your mission. You are here for a reason. You have a spiritual reason for being here now. It is time. NOW! NOW! NOW! NOW IS OUR TIME.

GET MOVING. Begin your work. You may feel you have been doing your work and fulfilling your mission but NOW IS THE TIME.

Re-assess, re-evaluate. The energy of change is pounding at the door. This is a tidal wave of energy that will uplift us if we listen. It will empower us if we let it. It will embrace us and change us and freedom will be sounded with this clarion call.

Dear ones, Now is The Time! Wake up from your daily lives. Remember why you are here! You are here for this moment in history. Don’t sleep through it! This is a call to action. Turn off the TV and any other distractions.

Listen and follow the rhythm of your heart. Get moving.

The time is now.

What Is Real?

by Owen K Waters

What is real? What is there to hold on to?

One of the main reasons for experiencing life on Earth is to discover what is real. We spend our lives coming here, going there, trying this and trying that. We acquire physical things and eventually let them go. Life’s experiences pass by like so much water under the bridge.

One constant in all of life’s ever-changing realities is the inner observer. This aspect of your inner self is present in all of life’s experiences, watching, learning, remembering. However, when you go even deeper than this, you reach the underlying basis of all consciousness, the awareness that, simply, you exist.

This fundamental awareness can be summarized in two words: “I am.”

The great “I Am” presence

You are one individual viewpoint of the great I Am, the consciousness of All That Is, the all-inclusive and all-embracing Infinite Being.

Consciousness is reality. Experiences may change from minute to minute, but underneath the flow of experiences lies that constant awareness, the sense of being that says, “I am.”

Life is about experiences which unfold at different locations in space and time. Space, however, is merely a construct of the Creator’s consciousness. The concept of space was created to allow an infinite variety of viewpoints to exist.

Time is also a construct of consciousness. Time enables change within space, making events and experiences possible.

Is physical matter a construct of consciousness? Matter is composed of energy, and energy, like all things in life, is a construct of consciousness.

The definition of energy

Energy is compressed consciousness.

galaxy2Each unit of energy is formed by counter-rotating vortexes of Intent. These vortexes push together to form a tiny sphere of compressed consciousness within their center, which becomes a particle of living energy.

Intent and Love in motion are the original, fundamental principles used in Infinite Being’s creation of the universe. Like thought and feeling, these aspects of being operate as complements to each other, and yet each one can be defined as an underlying, fundamental principle. When intent, the principle of thought, and love, the principle of feeling, are set into motion, then one invokes the other. The same complementary action occurs in electromagnetism when electricity is set into motion. The electrons – particles of compressed, original Intent – invoke a complementary magnetic field within the fabric of space.

The fabric of space is created by the Love aspect of the Creator. Love is the aspect of Infinite Being which provides the supportive matrix upon which all else is built. From the point of view of physics, the fabric of space would be defined as pure, inert, magnetic energy. Or, at least, it would be if physics had gotten around to defining it yet. It used to be called the aether, but its properties were not fully understood at the time. Physics, for the most part, does not currently believe in the aether, does not currently believe in a Creator of the universe, and, as a result, has no idea why particles of energy exhibit signs of consciousness.

The original Creation

starrynebula

Before the original Creation occurred, Infinite Being formed an expression of itself which was to become the Creator of the universe. Then, as the One Creator, it focused its Intent, expressed its Love, and brought these two aspects of Itself into motion. All of the universe was built upon these underlying principles, which make possible the facets of Creation such as time, space, energy and matter.

A universe in motion makes possible the changes we call experience. But if life is constantly changing, then what is there to hold on to? What is unchangingly real?

Unchanging reality is to be found beneath those fundamental aspects of the Creator’s Intent and Love in motion. Infinite Being is the underlying reality. Infinite Being is all that is, it never changes. Being is pure potential, whereas doing is the acting out of that potential.

The underlying reality of Infinite Being is complete beingness. Infinite Being is real. It never changes. It always is; just is.

How do you connect with reality? By meditating, by using the affirmation, “I am Infinite Being,” you can build your connection daily to the true reality which lies within you.

When you make spirituality your number one priority at the start of each day, then daily meditation becomes a habit, something which occurs with ease. By building that inner bridge to reality, you are empowering your own potential and also helping to shift the global mind toward enlightenment.

The Colors of Creation

by Owen K Waters

There are schools of thought which believe that light and darkness are opposites and that a battle between the two is part of the way the universe was created.

The same people also tend to believe that, while spirit is full of light, all matter – and that includes our physical bodies – is full of darkness and therefore flawed.

It all sounds a bit like the idea promoted by medieval-era church teachings – that we are worthless, defective, diseased sinners who need to appease some guy in a pulpit if we are to ever have a chance of putting things right.

Darkness and light are not opposites. Bright sunshine is bright light. Shadow is less-bright light. They are both degrees of light, not opposites.

The same misconceptions show up in other traditions. Yin and Yang have often been portrayed in ways that are no longer seen to be valid in today’s era of scientific thinking. Yang has been portrayed as the sunny side of a mountain or a river, while Yin is the shaded side. Again, these are just differences in the degree of light.

Yin and Yang are not cold and hot, for those conditions are just degrees of the same energy – heat. They are not even positive and negative, for that would imply that they are different poles of the same energy. One thing that three centuries of science has given us is the ability to see things in better definition. Today, we even understand that both heat and light are expressions of the same electromagnetic energy, but at different frequencies of expression.

To understand the true nature of Yin and Yang, you have to realize that they are actually different energies. They are both expressions of the energy of the Creator. Without either one, the universe could not exist.

Perhaps the best examples of Yin and Yang energies are magnetism and electricity. Magnetism draws objects together while electricity holds the potential to do work. When combined and set into motion, these energies produce physical light – an expression of electromagnetic energy.

Yang energy is the energy of expansion. It pushes outward, as if to explore the universe.

Yin energy is the energy of balance and harmony. It counter-balances the potential of Yang energy to bring it into a usable form as light.

Light is energy in motion.

The physical light that we see is just one manifestation of the energy that cascades through the realms of existence, powering all forms of life. Light manifests on all levels – as physical light, as etheric life energy, as mental energy, and as other essential forms of energy.

If Yin and Yang are not really darkness and light, then perhaps the colors of the Yin and Yang symbol should not be black and white. We could even get creative! These days, we have colors to use in portraying such concepts.

For example, how about the colors of the primary human chakras? Let’s take the chakras of immediate concern to humans – the solar plexus, the heart and the throat chakras.

Blue is the color of the throat chakra and its natural resonance with the soul and its unlimited spiritual connection. Blue and spirituality – what a perfect match.

Green is the color of the heart chakra and its primary purpose of bringing harmony to human consciousness. Green and harmony – what a perfect match.

Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra and its focus upon empowering, rational thought rather than the superstition and fear of bygone eras. Yellow, the sunshine color, and empowered energy – what a perfect match.

Most of all, in our journey back to conscious connectedness with our souls and the divine, let’s remember that we are deserving of all the light that the Creator sends us each and every minute of every day.

Mass Dreams of the Future

by Owen K Waters

In Dreama Vance’s recent article, Nodal Points and The Train Station, she illustrated the concept of different parallel realities – of how different trains are leaving the station and how we can choose which “train” we will take as we progress through The Shift into tomorrow’s world.

As we shall see, the idea of choices for alternate versions of our future explains the great mystery that was introduced in the early 1980s in the book, Mass Dreams of the Future.

It details the results of a research project that was undertaken where hundreds of seminar attendees were progressed into the future to see what their lives would be like in the time period 2100 – 2500 AD. Author Chet Snow summarized the results of this research project, which had been conducted by himself and past lives expert Helen Wambach.

Of those subjects reporting that they are to be physically incarnate in those future time zones, they found that the information correlated remarkably well into certain categories. These showed common themes in the different living environments viewed in those future incarnations:

1. New Age-types who lived an ecological lifestyle in harmony with the Earth.

2. In-space dwellers and people who lived on other planets.

3. A world of dome-covered cities. In sharp contrast to the green earth of the first category, this was a world where people lived under domes that offered protection against an unbreathable outside atmosphere.

4. Isolated cases of survivors living in the rubble of once-great cities.

In the 2100 AD era, any expeditions outside the dome-covered cities required breathing apparatus for survival. Author Chet Snow was deeply puzzled by the contrast in environments. It was, as he stated, as though the dome cities were on an entirely different planet. The dome city people of 2100 AD weren’t living on the pre-Shift, third-density Earth that we know because that showed up (in category 4) as a largely-abandoned relic of today’s world, but with a breathable atmosphere.

Well after the 2100 AD era, however, the dome planet atmosphere was seen to have become cleaned up sufficiently for humans to venture out and make rural life possible. They were then able to farm the land, initially in a low-tech way similar to the 1800s on Earth and later with the help of machines. At that point, the dome cities were still in use by people who preferred the controlled-climate cities rather than living out in the country with its seasons and weather variations.

Stark differences were observed between conditions in the New Age eco-heaven on Earth and the domed communities on the other world; not only in the atmosphere, but in the level of crime.

The New Agers on Earth co-existed in a heart-centered reality with hardly a ripple of conflict between anyone. Some dome dwellers, on the other hand, reported lives that ended as murder victims or by being executed for having committed serious crimes against others. From this, it is safe to conclude that the world of dome-covered cities will be populated by people who did not wish to make the shift to heart-consciousness on Earth.

So, people were reporting very different futures for the same time period – futures of enlightened harmony on the one hand and the opposite on the other hand.

If you consider that parallel realities exist, each containing very different circumstances, then the stark difference can be understood.

It is also safe to say that the “isolated cases of survivors living in the rubble of once-great cities” is not an enlightened kind of parallel reality.

The key to where a person ends up in 2100 AD must be the focus of their consciousness. Do they wish to transform into higher consciousness and go with the Earth into a higher level of reality, or do they want to stay with the same old ways of base emotionality and perpetual conflict?

We know that our thoughts create our reality, even if the immediate effects are not vividly noticeable. Not only do our thoughts and emotions create our own reality, they also influence and manifest in the outer world.

In the longer term, with The Shift causing a dividing of the ways, the research in Mass Dreams of the Future illustrates that those alternate realities can be very different indeed.

Nodal Points and The Train Station

by Dreama Vance

Although there are many in the world still functioning in an unconscious state of awareness, most of us “spiritual seekers” have, at some time in our life journey, awakened to the realization of One Source. We become cognizant of One Source of energy that animates life, that runs through all of existence, giving life, sustaining life, being Life itself.

I call this “becoming conscious.”

We become conscious of this energy and become conscious of the journey we are on in this life. This awakening period is a nodal point. Nodal points are significant events that occur, intersecting timelines and offering opportunities for branching into different trains of exploration.

Once we become conscious of our spiritual life, we begin to explore this realm. It is, in a very real sense, a time of falling in love. When in love, the world is made new. It is awash with sunlight, no matter the weather. Grouchy people, snarled traffic, all go unnoticed as we float in this happy state of new love. So it is as we begin our conscious exploration of spiritual life. Our eyes are starry as we experience the marvels of this new way of being. We stand in amazement as miracles roll out at our feet.

Just as new love changes, however, so does our spiritual journey. Although love remains, the path is not always smooth and easy. Bumps appear in the road. The observable world edges back into our reality. We run into road construction, have to take detours and may experience accidents and delays on our journey.

Somewhere in our journey, we reach the second nodal point. There are many different life experiences that can bring us to this point, but bring us it will. My sister used to say, “Until you can stand naked on the hill, you will not know yourself.” This is, indeed, the second nodal point. It is a time where everything we think we are, have, and hold dear is stripped away.

It is not necessarily a crisis of faith that brings us to this point. Indeed, it may even be our faith that leads us here. Nevertheless, it is a place and time where the external factors that we use to define ourselves are removed from us, either through our own choosing, or by other factors. However we arrive, we find ourselves standing utterly alone on that hill.

This is a metaphor, of course. It does not necessarily mean you will be alone. It means you will have to stand alone, stripped of the trappings we use like clothes. In this nakedness, only you will be able to know yourself, to know who you really are.

I was given wonderful wisdom during that time in my own life, which I pass along to you because it still, many years later, stands me in good stead:

“You can choose to focus your attention on what is behind you. You can worry about it, regret it, be angry over it, or sad about it. Or, you can focus your attention on the future. Infinite possibility stretches in front of you. You can look forward with anticipation and excitement over what is to come. It is entirely your choice.”

Hmm… look back and be miserable, or look forward with anticipation. I think I’ll choose the second option, looking forward. If you, too, choose to look forward, then this nodal point offers another period in time when we see with new vision. We see with new clarity. The world is again made new.

You can easily see that you are still on your spiritual journey. It is, however, as if you have taken a step up to another level of consciousness. The world looks different. You are different. In this next part of the journey love deepens. Our consciousness matures. Life, with its ups and downs, joys and heartaches, develops us. Through it all, it is almost as if we are driven to go deeper. That inner part of our heart cries out for deeper connection. The lotus of Truth begins to unfold our understanding. Once again we come to a nodal point.

We find ourselves again standing naked on the hill. This time, however, we stand in our power. We stand in stillness while the storm rages around us. We can look back and see the progress we have made. Indeed, we can see the spirals of our life and identify those nodes.

I am reminded of an analogy about The Shift that I heard in the mid 1990s. Someone described this period of our history as a train station. We would each have to choose the train we wanted to be on for our future. Would we choose a spiritual train? Or would we take a train remaining in the third dimension? Would factory farming and pharmaceutical drugs still reign supreme on your train of choice? How about boundaries and walls… the TSA and genetically modified food? Which train will you board? It is not just a political agenda.

As the trains leave from the station, they are all close together and we can choose to hop over to another one. But, as the trains go farther away from the station they branch away from each other and soon it is no longer possible to change trains. Eventually, you no longer even see the other trains.

I had forgotten this depiction, but we are now twenty years down the road. The train I am on seems to be taking me to a very different reality than what I knew and understood at the train station. The external world looks different to me. Structures such as governments that once appeared as foundations of integrity now seem like a mirage. I look outside the train window and it is as if I am in a foreign land. Who are these people in the news? Who writes these stories? Truth and decency seem to evaporate like mist outside of my window. Already I feel as if I no longer know this external world.

But the world on the spiritual train, this destination, the journey itself, is exciting! It is clean, and new, and bright. It is full of joy where living food and plant medicines nourish us with light. People know the truth of their being and recognize it in each other.

It is infinite possibility!

What train have you chosen? Choose the future you want now and hop on board!
