Your True Inner Self

Your True Inner Self
by Owen K Waters

Your inner self is your complete self. Often referred to as your soul or higher self, your inner self includes all aspects of your consciousness as an individual.

Your inner self encompasses all levels of your consciousness – subconscious, superconscious and waking consciousness. You can think of your waking consciousness as an “outer self,” because it’s function is to focus upon a world which has the appearance of being external. The human brain is designed to translate the concepts of space and time into something that appears real. Your outer self’s focus is directed at the physical world, which it perceives through the five physical senses.

People habitually think of their soul as being something elsewhere, and not something that encompasses their waking consciousness. They also think of the world as being “out there” rather than what it really is – an internal projection of theatrical props which make life appear to be a real drama.

It is more useful to use the term “inner self” to describe the complete self because, compared to the external world, it appears to be inside of you.

When you look at the reality of life, everything is inside of you. As a spark of Infinite Being, the entire universe is inside of you because the universe was created within the consciousness of Infinite Being. The definition of “Infinite Being” is “consciousness which encompasses all.” Nothing can be outside of an all-encompassing consciousness, therefore all must be within and, as an aspect of Infinite Being, it is within you.

Before you were born, you carefully planned the possibilities for this incarnation. Your inner self had access to all of the probabilities which would unfold in your current life, thus enabling you to make a life plan. You examined several possible lives and chose this one for the experiences that it would let you explore.

Think of your inner self as a nonphysical, spiritual personality which chose to enter your body at the time of birth. Gradually, over a period of months, your conscious mind formed a greater attachment to this new body and eventually became completely identified with it.

The current system of incarnation on earth involves spiritual amnesia – we are born with blank physical memories as part of the challenge of reconnecting with our spiritual essence during physical incarnation. That system will change in the coming centuries as human consciousness rises to new challenges and opportunities but, in the meantime, it still provides a fresh start to every incarnation that we choose to experience.

Each incarnation occurs in different locations and historical times, with different sets of parents and societal environments. This creates the opportunity for you to play many roles as different personalities. Your inner nature does shine through into your outer personality as an influence, but the variety provided by different incarnations is enormous. Imagine, over the last two thousand years, experiencing incarnations as a centurion defending Rome against the barbarians, then a quiet life as a peasant farmer’s wife in Spain, then plying the Mediterranean trade routes as first mate on a spice ship, then as an English nun and finally a talk show host. Now that’s variety!

Personalities vary from life to life because of the societal environment in which they are formed. Shining through that outer personality, however, is the real you, your spiritual inner self. The wisdom of knowing how to handle a challenge often comes from the inner knowing gained from the experience of countless lifetimes.

You can get in touch with your inner self if you take the time to simply go within using a meditation technique such as the Infinite Being meditation.

In that contemplative state, ask yourself what it feels like when you get in touch with your inner self. How does life look when seen from its perspective? How does it feel to be connected to that part of you which is, in turn, consciously connected to the entire universe? How does it feel to live beyond the confines of space and time?

Words like freedom, expansion, joy and harmony spring to life while you are in the presence of your true, spiritual self.

Your inner self is eternal. It can never cease to exist, any more than Infinite Being can cease to exist. This eternal part of you has wisdom and love beyond the confines of any single incarnation. Feel the security of knowing this eternal part of yourself. While you are in the conscious presence of your inner self, see how meaningful the affirmation from the Infinite Being meditation becomes:

“I am Infinite Being.”

Gaining Intuitive Insights
by Owen K Waters

It’s a little-known secret that, during the first two hours of sleep at night, people reconnect with their soul consciousness. The spirit realms are where most dreams occur throughout the night. The soul realms are beyond this. To reach soul consciousness, your awareness moves up through the spirit realms and, upon reaching the deepest sleep state, reconnects with your innermost state of beingness.

During that time of reconnection with the core of your essence, you review the latest events in your life and plan what would be best for your next moves. You won’t consciously remember the experience when you return to your sleeping physical body, but your soul awareness is always there in the background, ready to be accessed at any time by conscious intent.

Accessing the wisdom of your soul awareness takes only a moment. Just stop what you are doing, turn your attention within and see what your intuitive impressions are concerning the issue at hand. When you slow down for a moment to tune into the subtle and quiet whisperings of your soul, then you have true wisdom at your disposal in the world of daily living.

The advice to “sleep on it” when faced with a big decision now takes on a whole new meaning. Knowing that you will mull this decision over at a soul level at night, you can appreciate that, the next day, your feelings on which course of action to take will be inspired by the wisdom of your soul.

At a soul level, you have access to a much wider perspective of reality. For a start, you can project any decision into the future and see, in lifelike reality, exactly how that decision will work out. That process certainly beats guessing at such outcomes. In a soul-level projection of the future, you see all the threads of interactions with other people and how everything will turn out based upon current trends. This wisdom is then available to your waking state via the power of intuition.

Personally, when it comes to an important decision, I insist on having three nights of “sleeping on it” before I will agree to give an answer as to whether I will go ahead. Doing this means never again having to say, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

Sometimes, you are faced with a situation that has just come up and you could use some insight as to what the real situation is. You may be on the spot and not be able to retreat into a quiet location for a good meditation. In that case, just polling your sense of intuition for inside information can be enough to bring up insights that help you handle the situation in the best way possible.

After a soul contact session, you’ll either find yourself thinking, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that earlier?” or you may find yourself feeling stuck. If that is the case, let the problem go for now and entrust your soul awareness to research and find the best solution. Ask for insights to pop up into your awareness at any time, detach by releasing the topic to your soul, and go about other activities. It won’t be long before some very helpful thoughts arise as if out of nowhere.

The power of intuition works to give you all the insights and inside information that you need to make a great success out of everything you seek to achieve.

Vital Life Energy

Vital Life Energy
by Owen K Waters

Vital life energy is an apt name for what science will eventually recognize as “etheric energy”. Etheric energy is a primary energy while electric energy is, by comparison, a secondary, more dense energy.

Leaving the future of science aside, etheric or vital life energy has been recognized in the healing arts for thousands of years. Chinese medicine, for example, is based on the analysis and balancing of vital life energy or “chi” in the subtle nervous system of the human body.

Treatment is achieved by herbs with appropriate energetic qualities or by acupuncture, which redirects or enhances energy flows in the subtle nervous system. By achieving balance at the more subtle level, balance also manifests in the physical level.

In Hindu philosophy and medicine, vital life energy is referred to as prana. In Japan, it is called ki. Some of the more modern names include bioenergy and orgone.

The ancient, energy-enhancing practice of Tai Chi is now well-known in the West as is Chi Gong (or Qigong.) Chi Gong is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation.

My partner Dreama Vance is an ardent practitioner of Chi Gong and she will be teaching it in weekly classes to a group in Boulder, Colorado this summer.

Modern spiritual healing methods, including Therapeutic Touch and Reiki, employ vital life energy to boost the body’s natural ability to restore health and balance. Spiritual healing can be a hands-on experience or it can be carried out at a distance. Distant healers use their skills to send vital life energy to people anywhere in the world, regardless of location.

Spiritual Healing News

Earlier this year, I recommended the talented spiritual healer Amma Magi to anyone who wishes to obtain distant healing. On her website, she also offers a helpful free guide called “Spiritual Self-Healing” to show anyone how to attract and direct vital life energy in order to restore physical health and balance.

Her website’s Contact page was experiencing a technical problem where intended emails never came through to her. So, if you tried to contact her and heard nothing in return, please try again as her direct email link is now on her website.

Nocturnal Adventures – Part II

Posted by Admin on May 17, 2012

Nocturnal Adventures – Part II
by Owen K Waters

Last week, I pointed out that a curtain of forgetfulness is drawn across our consciousness each time we awake from sleep. Because our nighttime adventures typically occur in the fourth-density spirit world, which is a more subtle realm than our third-density physical world, our nocturnal activities are more vivid, more alive, and more real than anything that occurs during the day.

Because the spirit world is where the population of the afterlife lives, you often meet friends and relatives there who have passed on from the physical world. Nighttime can be a wonderful time of reunion with such dear friends, so it’s well worth making the effort to increase your dream recall ability.

Your spirit body naturally resonates to the spirit world. Once freed from the physical shell each night as your physical body falls asleep, it will normally move upwards from the physical third-density world towards the light of the fourth-density spirit world. Upon arriving, you will notice extra light everywhere: It fills the air and it radiates outwards from solid objects. This is because material in the spirit realms is made of etheric energy, which is a higher energy than the electric energy that forms physical matter.

The air in the spirit world is filled with etheric energy, ready to be drawn into some useful form by the intent of any individual. People in the afterlife can build a new home just as fast as they can visualize every part of it. It will stay in existence as long as they pay it occasional attention. If they want a little variety in the appearance of their new home, they can even redecorate it every day! If they leave and move elsewhere, the house will slowly dissolve, over a period of months, back into the atmosphere as etheric energy.

The fact that people who live in the spirit realms create homes does not exclude you, the temporary nighttime visitor, from doing the same. In fact, having a private retreat somewhere in the spirit world is a wonderful help in recovering from the stresses of daytime physical living. There is plenty of space in the spirit world for you to find a quiet, private location for your retreat.

One of the curious properties of the spirit world is that you can actually create your own space, fill it with objects of your own design, and it will be something that no one else would perceive unless they tuned into your thought pattern as the creator of that scene. It can even be large enough to include your own idea of an ocean scene with a perfect, setting sun. It won’t be the actual Sun; it’ll just be your own, private, artistic creation built for your own enjoyment, and it will last for as long as you pay occasional attention to it.

The spirit or astral body is quasi-physical. This means that, while it is subtle and etheric compared to the physical body, it is still solid in its own environment. In the spirit realms of 4D, matter is composed of etheric energy and is solid to the touch. If you bump into another spirit or astral body on your travels, they will seem solid, just like bumping into another person in the physical world.

The fact that spirit matter is less dense than physical matter gives you a lot more freedom of movement. You can meet a friend halfway around the world in one or two seconds of travel time just by projecting your spirit body to that new location. You tune into that person and, wherever they are, mentally project, and you will appear at that location.

A simple intention is all it takes to decide what each night’s adventure can be. Then, upon awakening, you’re halfway to remembering what happened.

So far, we have examined the possibilities for nocturnal adventures where you can:

1. Go and see friends and relatives who have either passed on or, just like you, are temporarily out-of-body for the night.

2. Notice how the 4D air is full of energy and materialize solid objects either just for fun or for artistic development.

3. Find a piece of land away from it all and build a small retreat there.

4. Decide who or where to go and see in a distant location, gather your intent, and project there instantly.

The challenge is to remember such adventures. Intent is the key. Tell yourself,

“Tonight, I intend to (have this adventure) and I will remember it upon awakening.”

Keep a notebook and pen right beside your bed and some source of light (even a flashlight will do.) Get in the habit of recalling dreams as soon as you awake and writing down everything you can. You’ve just returned from another world to a brain that’s had the night off, so those memories will begin to fade fast as soon as you wake up. Seconds count in writing down those dream details.

Realize that the immediate dreamstate is shallow compared to full immersion in the spirit world. The easiest dreams to recall are the ones that occur when you are almost ready to wake up. They are typically dramatic scenes filled with symbols that help you integrate the stresses that you have felt in previous days. The key to understanding them is to ask what each symbol means to you emotionally. Then, you’ll understand the stress that was being worked out in the dream, or the message that your inner being was bringing to the surface for your attention.

As you become more practiced in dream recall, you will soon reach beyond the initial dreamstate and remember the deeper, real-life experiences that you have each night in the spirit world.

The good news is that today, due to ongoing effect of The Shift, the veil is thinning between the 3D physical world and the 4D spirit world. As each year passes, people are remembering more and more upon awakening. You may sometimes find yourself between wakefulness and sleep and you are really not sure which state you are in. Today, this is quite common due to the thinning of the veil. As The Shift continues, physical matter will move fully into 4D, there will be no veil and full recall will be easy.
