Spiritual Growth
by Owen Waters

Spiritual growth is the growing awareness of a higher level of consciousness.

A higher level of consciousness brings an expanded view of reality.

The more your view of reality expands, the more you are able to integrate any conflicting issues within yourself and claim the joy which is your natural birthright.

Soul-Based Safety

Soul-Based Safety
by Owen Waters

With your sense of intuition in good working order, you are never in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Last week, I pointed out that 2012 will come and go without any of the frantic disaster predictions coming true. I’ve never seen a prediction about massive disasters come true yet, and 2012 will be no exception.

On the other side of the coin, you do have to be aware that danger can lurk along anyone’s path through life, so caution is prudent. Every time you get in a car and drive, it won’t be you that’s causing the potential danger. It’ll be some unaware person who’s on the phone or texting instead of watching where they’re driving. Being aware of potential danger isn’t being fearful; it’s being sensibly cautious.

On a larger scale, it’s a no-brainer that, if you live in an earthquake zone or a hurricane zone, you will face such dangers on very rare occasions. If a natural disaster is about to affect your area, you can intuitively know about it soon enough to be prepared or even leave the area. Animals always know these things at least 3 days ahead, so it’s not hard for we humans to be similarly in tune with nature via our inner guidance.

Another no-brainer is that, because sea levels are beginning to rise, low-lying coastal homes will one day become uninhabitable. That day might be 30 years away or it might come sooner. Either way it pays to be open to intuitive warnings or senses of caution as such inner messages arise. There’s little point in moving away years ahead of time but, if you begin to get hunches to move somewhere else, that’s different. Then, you should investigate the possibilities, see how each option feels and act in line with your inner guidance. The ideal option for you will be the one that feels the most right to you.

The solution to personal safety and security has always been to be open to intuition from your soul consciousness. If you’re getting into your car and you get a sudden flash that you should take another route than the one you’d planned, then go with the hunch, even if it does make you late for work. The hunch might just be about avoiding traffic congestion or it might be a message for your safety. If it’s an urgent message, it will keep repeating itself.

The nature of such messages is subtle. They don’t loudly announce themselves like, “Ding! Incoming message!” They do quite the reverse.

They pop quietly into your awareness as an idea that your conscious mind didn’t generate. Your response will often be, “Where did that idea come from?” If the idea repeats itself two more times in the next few minutes, then you know you’re getting Ding’d big time!

Intuition works much more smoothly when you have adopted a habit of daily spiritual practices. Meditation, healing or world healing practices bring you spiritual growth by raising your frequency of consciousness. They open up your awareness to soul-based intuitive guidance and the sense of personal safety and security that this brings.

The World Healing Technique is particularly powerful and it is available online for all to see at:

Disaster Predictions

Disaster Predictions
by Owen Waters

I’ve been watching a long litany of disaster predictions come and go for many years.

The amazing thing is: None of them ever came true.

Not one of them, ever!

Last June, for example, I was forwarded an email that contained a particularly dire prediction. It stated that, on September 26th, 2011, Comet ELE would swing by, causing massive 9-point-plus earthquakes here on Earth.

This was no run-of-the-mill comet, by the way. This one was supposed to be more than 300 times the size of the Earth! It was also supposed to bring us three days of darkness while it passed between us and the Sun.

Pretty scary, huh? I thought so, anyway.

Naturally, September the 26th came and went with no sign of Comet Whopper. The only whopper in sight was the big lie behind yet another nonsensical disaster prediction.

Who are these people who make up such horror stories? Are their lives so filled with utter boredom that they have to run around trying to scare people?

The next big upcoming Disaster-Fest will be the Mayan ‘End Time’ in December 2012. The closer we get to that date, the more you’ll hear these people yelling messages like, “The End is Nigh!”

Will the world come to an end in 2012? Is the Mayan End Time the end of all time and life as we know it? Are we about to be smitten by an angry God?

Now is a great time to review our online 2012 article and find out the facts for yourself:

The Secret of Personal Magnetism

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Secret of Personal Magnetism
by Owen Waters

When people open their hearts to unselfish, unconditional love, a whole new world of possibilities opens. Rather than spending effort avoiding the selfishness of others, they take time to make sure that the way they choose to serve society is done in the best way possible. When people can trust others to treat each other with love and respect rather than as competitors, then everyone gains.

As heart-centered awareness grows and blooms within society, people’s primary focus will shift away from service to self and towards service to others. When it does, the world will transform out of all recognition.

But you don’t have to wait for all of society to catch up. In both your personal and professional dealings with people, you have a reputation, and it is fed by word-of-mouth recommendation. Build your reputation as someone who tends to give more than is expected of them, and you will find yourself becoming increasingly popular in both your business and personal lives. People respond to heartfelt action and, as they say, what goes around comes around.

Action and reaction are opposite and equal in all types of thought and action. Your heartfelt action, by automatic reaction, will create a heartfelt reality among you and the people who are attracted to your energy. When you operate mainly out of a heart-centered frequency, you will notice that people are attracted to you in all aspects of your life. Friends, lovers, professional associates; everyone will be attracted to your magnetic personality.

Personal magnetism has been one of the great mysteries of life simply because, in the past, so few people have operated from that heart-centered frequency of awareness on a routine basis. However, it’s really no secret. It’s just one of those common-sense facts of life.

The secret of personal magnetism is that the more you unconditionally love people, the more they love you.

You don’t have to make a big deal out of it. You don’t have to stand there like some transmitter beacon, radiating huge amounts of heart energy. Top stage performers do, but you don’t. You can be very quiet about it and everyone will be quietly drawn to you. Everyone of a similar nature, that is. Everyone who appreciates kindness and a truly warm, genuine smile.

In other words, you’ll attract the very best of friends.

There’s nothing more attractive than a warm smile from a person who quietly radiates a sense of unconditional love for themselves and all others.

Your Freedom to Take Health Supplements

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

Your Freedom to Take Health Supplements

I have just received this email from James Redfield, the author of The Celestine Prophecy and other inspirational books. If you live in the USA, your health freedom is in imminent jeopardy and your appropriate action can be of great service to health freedom in these critical days.

All the best,

Owen Waters
Infinite Being News

From James Redfield:

Hi everyone.

This might be the most important alert I’ve ever sent you.

If you think that Americans should have the freedom to be in charge of their own health care, and have the freedom to take safe, non-toxic supplements, then you must take action now to prevent the FDA from acting to ban many of the supplements we take for granted.

Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues

http://www.fda.gov

These regulatory actions taken by unelected bureaucrats in the FDA will force many supplement companies out of business due to costly new regulations, and will outright ban your access to other supplements altogether without a prescription.

Remember, over 300,000 people a year die from normally prescribed pharmaceutical medications in the U.S. But the Poison Control Center could not find one case of someone dying from a nutritional or herbal supplement. This is clearly a corrupt move to enhance the profits of Big Pharmaceutical companies at a time when millions of Americans are finding heath improvement by choosing natural remedies.

At the same time, Senator Dick Durbin, long known to protect the interest of Big Pharma, has introduced a bill that would seriously jeopardize your access to alternative medical options in general to treat illness.

S.1310 — Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c112:S.1310:

We must act now. Don’t just email – call your congressional representatives if you value your health freedom! This is serious! These people are displaying unbelievable corruption and they think no one will bother to STOP THEM.

You may find your local representatives here:

US Senate –

The Power of Love

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Power of Love
by Owen Waters

Love, in its various forms, is the almighty drive that sends people to the extremes of human endeavor. This potent force which pervades the universe is part and parcel of the human experience, providing people with learning and evolution. It is the driving force behind all life in its journey back to the Oneness of all things.

There are many forms of love. There is the love of a mother for her baby. There is the love of a child for their parents. There is the camaraderie of people of like mind. There is the love shown by self-sacrifice in order to save others during a crisis.

All these are manifestations of the one love, the one energy which pervades all existence upon all frequencies of consciousness. The world is changing. It is transforming into a world of human dignity and poise, where one person is honored by all other people, where suffering has come to an end because people reach out with their hearts to serve humanity in any way they see fit.

It is a world of love that will blossom forth when fear comes to an end. When fear is transformed, people will not fight for resources, they will create ways to make sure there is enough of everything for everyone. When fear is transformed, people will not need to have power over others in order to feel more secure within themselves.

Fear is a mental energy. It circulates the globe within the mind belt of humankind. It can be transformed into love by the prayers and intentions of every spiritually-minded individual upon the face of the globe. When fear is neutralized by love, world peace will dawn. Sending your love energy out into the world is an act of transformation, and one with your name on it. When you are joined by millions of others in this dynamic act of transformation, we will have peace on earth.

To learn how to transform the world and, at the same time, reach the inspiration and power to transform every challenge in your life, read Owen Waters’ e-book, Freedom of the Spirit, available now at:

Freedom from Fear
by Owen Waters

The 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York is a wonderful time to remember that fear can be totally neutralized by love.

The trick is to know how to invoke that love in the face of stark events that are intended to bind you in fear:

The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness

Posted by Admin on November 16, 2011

The Gateway to Spiritual Consciousness
by Owen Waters

Love is the saving grace of all of humanity. We contact this primal energy in our finest moments. From the moment a baby is born, it is enshrouded in the unselfish love of its mother. From the moment a person springs into action to protect others from peril, their own thoughts of survival are ‘overlighted’ by the love and caring that shines from their heart.

When a person looks back on their life, they see that one thing that mattered the most: Love. Pure, unadulterated, unconditional love.

It is the source of compassion. It is the energy of caring for others. It is the binding force which holds together the entire universe, and it flows through you whenever you simply allow it.

Love is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. It is through activation of the spiritual heart that we pass into a whole new world of expansion and joy. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we find peace, bliss, and continual inspiration. In the realms of spiritual consciousness, we expand our view of life to see the issues that are important to the soul. We can then see how love can heal and how we can and should take the time to spread a little more love in the world every day, even if it is simply done in silent prayer for the well-being of others.

Let your heart open to love each and every day. When you are attuned to the natural flow of love throughout the universe, you then feel the natural flow of energy within your own being. Your senses of insight and timing develop to help you achieve more and to succeed easily at the tasks that are important to you.

The flow of love is critical to life. Without the all-pervasive love of the Creator which fills the universe, nothing would exist. For centuries, humankind has been playing a game where love and inner inspiration have been blocked off and ignored. Today, the tide is turning and people are opening up to this wonderful flow of natural energy.

Remember the love within, especially when outer circumstances seem dark. Remember that love is the gateway to the higher realms of consciousness where answers can be found to meet every challenge that life presents.

Tune into love. It will never let you down. Instead, it will set your spirit free to explore the realms of consciousness which offer greater vistas of awareness, greater peace of mind, and a sense of constant joy.

Mysticism As A Key To Scientific Breakthroughs

Mysticism As A Key To Scientific Breakthroughs
by Owen Waters

Mystics are visionaries. That’s what gives them the edge in scientific research.

Newton, Faraday and Einstein were all examples of mystics. Most of their research occurred, not in a laboratory, but within their visionary consciousness.

Mysticism is a learned skill, just like learning to ride a bicycle, and it is an exact science. You can develop this incredibly useful skill and gain that visionary edge, not just in scientific research, but in any endeavor that you plan to undertake.

Reconnecting with Love

Reconnecting with Love
by Owen Waters

With the ups and downs of life, there can be times when your connection to a universe of love seems distant. The opposite of love is fear and it appears in many forms. All negative emotions including guilt and anger are expressions of fear and they can flourish in the absence of love.

Fortunately, fear has a simple antidote. Love dissolves fear, so you need to know how to bring its feeling back when it has temporarily gone away.

Gratitude is one type of expression of love which has enormous power. Gratitude is invoked when you mentally send love to those whom you appreciate. It becomes especially powerful when you send your gratitude to your concept of God the Creator for all the good things in your life and for life itself, because God will reciprocate with uplifting energies. That one step you take towards God really does bring a reaction of two steps towards you.

Gratitude takes you right out of your personal sphere of consciousness and into an expanded view of the universe.

In this way, it raises you far above the petty fears that still try to haunt people in the everyday world. Gratitude is one of the most beautiful secrets in spiritual life. It is an expression of love, and love flows through all forms of manifestation. Without love, life in the universe cannot exist. Love is the universal force of preservation which holds Creation in manifestation.

When you allow your heart to open to the universe’s flow of love, gratitude comes with that flow. Gratitude for being alive, for just existing, for just being in the flow of the adventure of life. Gratitude for the Sun that gives us life. Gratitude for the Creation of the Earth as our home in this great cosmos. Gratitude for the people that you love, and for those who share your journey through life.

Gratitude flows unimpeded from an open heart. When you allow it, gratitude will flow as freely as the sunshine, unobstructed by judgments or conditions.

Use the following affirmation and see what happens. Keep repeating it and, each time, think more about what the words mean.

The Gratitude Affirmation adds new meaning to the term, quality of life. It really works! Try it now.

Gratitude Affirmation

I am grateful for life
And all that I love
I am grateful for the Earth
And the Sun up above
I am grateful for my spirit
And my inner being
For the One that I express
And the joy of this feeling

When you awaken each day, even before you get out of bed, think of ten things for which you are grateful. Finish your reflections with the Gratitude Affirmation and, each day, you’ll feel inspired to have the best day ever!

UN says at least 3,500 killed in Syria crackdown

Posted by Admin on November 9, 2011

http://news.yahoo.com/un-says-least-3-500-killed-syria-crackdown-101719585.html

By JOHN HEILPRIN – Associated Press | AP – 21 hrs ago

GENEVA (AP) — Syria‘s nearly eight-month-old uprising has cost at least 3,500 civilian lives, the United Nations reported Tuesday, in a tally based on figures gathered outside the country.

That includes dozens killed since last week’s Arab League-brokered peace plan, and the passing of a major Muslim holiday on Sunday, according to the U.N. human rights office.

Ravina Shamdasani — a spokeswoman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights — said “more than 60 people are reported to have been killed by Syrian security forces since Syria signed the peace plan” sponsored by the league.

She told reporters in Geneva the tally includes 19 killed on Sunday during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice.

The U.N. figures are conservative and based on “credible sources on the ground,” though the agency itself has no one posted in the country, Shamdasani said.

The government has largely sealed off the country from foreign journalists and prevented independent reporting, but amateur videos posted online and details gathered by activist groups have been filtering out.

Damascus had agreed under the Arab League plan to pull tanks and armored vehicles out of cities, release political prisoners and allow journalists and rights groups into the country.

Despite the release of more than 500 detainees on the eve of Eid al-Adha, Shamdasani said “tens of thousands continue to remain in detention and dozens are reported to be arbitrarily arrested and detained.”

As a result, she said, the U.N. human rights office is “deeply concerned” that the violence continues unabated as the government continues to use tanks and armored vehicles to attack some areas.

Activists have reported that fresh attacks by Syrian troops on Tuesday morning killed two people in a rebellious neighborhood in the central Syrian city of Homs, as the military struggles to consolidate control over the district.

A key opposition group, the Syrian National Council, declared the city a “disaster area” on Monday and appealed for international intervention to protect civilians, as well as calling for Arab and international observers to oversee the situation on the ground. Homs has a population of some 800,000 and is some 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of the capital, Damascus.

Despite increasing international pressure, President Bashar Assad still has a firm grip on power and has shown no signs of moving to stop the crackdown on the uprising against his regime since mid-March.

He blames the bloodshed on “armed gangs” and extremists acting out a foreign agenda to destabilize the regime, portraying himself as the lone force who can ward off the radicalism and sectarianism that have bedeviled neighbors in Iraq and Lebanon.
