Destiny and Free Will

Posted by Admin on October 16, 2012

In the Old Reality, things were seen as opposites – hot or cold, black or white, good or bad, this way or that way. In the expanded view of New Reality consciousness, life is seen in a unified way. Opposite sides of the coin are viewed, not as polar opposites, but rather as just being different aspects of the one coin.

In the New Reality view of the world, the opposite extremes of hot and cold become variable degrees of warmth. Black and white become, instead, endless shades of gray. Good and bad become different shades of human nature and these can be viewed without the judgment and fear that comes with Old Reality, polarized thinking.

In the Old Reality, destiny and free will were seen as mutually exclusive. The reasoning was that, if destiny exists, then it controls everything and, therefore, free will does not exist. On the other hand, you can prove that free will does exist by making a choice. So, as the thinking goes, if free will does exist, then there can be no destiny.

But, wait. Perhaps that choice of “free will” was really a pre-destined one. Perhaps the person was destined to make that choice all along, so the experience of choice was just an illusion. At this point, people usually give up on the whole question because it has turned into one of those brain teasers, like asking which came first – the chicken or the egg.

Brain teasers keep your mind in an endless loop until you step back from the situation and see it in a wider perspective. The new, wider perspective allows for the inclusion of non-materialistic factors. In deciding whether the chicken or the egg came first, for example, you just have to step back and see that the Creator designed the chicken to be self-perpetuating.

When you step back and see destiny and free will from a wider perspective, you realize that nothing has to be absolute. If every event in your life were pre-ordained, there would be no such thing as free will or self-determination. As we do have free will, destiny cannot be fixed.

Destiny is therefore variable, not fixed. Destiny and free will both exist as interwoven facets of your life. Like threads in a tapestry, they interact with each other and blend to form the outcomes that are the events in your life.

Your destiny is created by plans that you made at a soul level of consciousness. Before you were born, you made your main plan for this life. Then, the minute you were born, the rules of the game demanded that you also get a case of amnesia about the whole arrangement. Such is the game of life in the physical realm.

However, at night when you go to sleep, you have the ability to go to the deepest levels of human consciousness and review how the original plan is unfolding and make changes to your plan if desired. When you return to your physical body and awake in the morning, amnesia strikes again. Within seconds of your conscious mind returning into your physical brain, you forget both the surface dreams and the deep experiences of the night.

Amnesia may be a part of the game we are playing in this life, but inner guidance is always available to anyone who pays attention to it. Your intuition is your link to your soul, or inner being, which is also linked to the rest of the universe and all levels of Creation.

You are never left alone to fumble in the darkness of a purely physical life. Your inner being is always there with you, expressing itself through the quiet whisperings of intuitive information. Thanks to this inner compass of knowing, you can always sense which choice feels right. You can always tell when your life is running on plan, and you can tell equally well if you’ve become temporarily distracted from your plan. You always have the means to be right on course, or get back on course, and explore the fascinating themes that make up your life plan.

The most productive use of free will is to explore your true potential within the themes of your life, thus gaining the greatest possible experience from your life plan.

Destiny is an influence that comes from your inner plan. There is nothing absolute about your destiny. It’s a pressure which constantly seeks the best route to unfold into manifestation.

Free will provides the means to manifest that destiny in a way that provides the learning that you came here to acquire in this life.

Destiny is variable. It adapts to new circumstances in your life every day. As destiny unfolds, you feel it within as a sense of being a part of the flow of life, of manifesting your potential in the way that you planned for this day and that you planned for this life.

Destiny is the plan. Free will is the action. Experience is the result.

That’s what being human is.

The End of the World

Posted by Admin on September 28, 2012

by Owen K Waters

When you practice viewing the future, one thing you might notice is that, a few years from now, everything goes blank as though the world has disappeared! Whoops, where did the world go?

This happens when you are tracking forward along the frequency of the world we now inhabit. But, the world is about to change. All matter is about to go through a quantum leap in frequency and ascend into a new, more subtle physical existence. It is an energy shift which has been building for centuries and we’re getting close to where that sudden leap into the new frequency band will happen. The fast rate of change that we experience in life today is indicative of just how close we are to the critical point where the quantum shift will occur.

The quantum shift is an effect of a major cosmic influence which extends far beyond the planet and even the solar system. We chose to be born in these times because we want to go along for the greatest ride in the history of the human experience on Earth.

The world is about to change, as is the entire solar system. All matter, including your physical body, will become more subtle and more energetically refined.

One day, you will wake up to a world that is different. After this quantum shift, your intuitive faculties will become much clearer. Telepathy between loved ones will become easy to develop. Mental contact with friends and relatives who have passed on will become ever more commonplace.

People will begin to perceive the subtle light that radiates from their bodies and other matter. The sky will seem to be full of vibrant life energy. Colors will take on deeper hues and sounds will expand in depth, creating a whole new range of possibilities in music and the arts. People will consume lighter foods and more liquids than before. Eventually, everyone will have one job description – to serve humanity in the best way of which they are capable.

After all, from a soul perspective, we are here primarily to help one another.

The best news is that the new frequency of the Earth will be of the same frequency as heart-centered human consciousness. Imagine, peace breaking out all over the world!

One day, the world as we know it will end as it moves into the new frequency band. There has been much speculation that the ending of several cosmic cycles in 2012 will activate that quantum leap. I see it taking several years after 2012, under the influence of the new cosmic cycles, for the cosmic time to be right for the big shift.

Even if you were to pass on to the spirit realms before The Shift, you will still be a part of this all-inclusive cosmic event. The spirit realms will move up in frequency at the same time. Technically, their departure from their current vibrational position will actually create the vibrational slot that the physical world will move into.

Today, we refer to The Shift as an ongoing acceleration towards quantum change, and something that has been taking many years. The big event, however, will be the instantaneous transformation of matter into a higher frequency. In the future, The Shift will refer to that one beautiful event: The day the Earth became new again.

Ascension For All

Posted by Admin on June 24, 2012

by Owen K Waters

Humanity is about to ascend into a more subtle physical form. This will be a gradual change, not a sudden transformation. The start of the new Mayan time cycles on December 21, 2012 will be a pivotal time when consciousness will shift to a new reality. However, this 2012 event is more likely to be viewed as a pivotal time after the fact, and not immediately.

When the astrologically-significant Harmonic Convergence occurred in August 1987, many people expected the world to transform and world peace to dawn on that very day. Human inertia, however, preempts such a sudden change. It takes time for new thought to filter into the reality of world consciousness, and even more time for events to unfold as a result of this change.

Two years after the Harmonic Convergence, what did happen was an unprecedented step forward in human liberty: The Berlin Wall, that separated the Soviet Union from the West, fell. Two years after that, the Soviet Union itself collapsed, ending the global standoff that had threatened the very survival of the human race for over forty years.

The evolution of the consciousness of humankind has been accelerating. Starting with the birth of the Renaissance 600 years ago, then accelerating with the growth of science 300 years ago, and coming into focus with the spiritual searching that blossomed in the 1960’s, the mass mind of humanity has been moving ever more quickly towards The Shift.

Although The Shift is a gradual process that is occurring over many decades, its main milestone marker will be when the mass consensus of human consciousness reaches the tipping point between material, third-density consciousness and heart-centered, fourth-density consciousness. When that happens, physical humankind will become firmly located in a fourth-density environment.

Pioneering individuals have been moving their awareness in and out of fourth-density consciousness for decades. The key marker in The Shift is when the mass mind of humanity reaches that dividing line and takes the quantum step forward into its own heart.

In that new reality, along with the shift into fourth-density consciousness, people will notice that the development of their inner senses has become relatively effortless. Intuition-supported thought will become commonplace. Telepathy between loved ones will become easy to develop. Contact with friends and relatives who have passed on will become ever more commonplace.

Fourth-density physical bodies are less dense than third-density ones. People will begin to perceive the light that radiates from their bodies and other fourth-density matter. Colors will take on deeper hues and sounds will expand in depth, creating a whole new range of possibilities in the arts. People will consume lighter foods and more liquids than before. Everyone will have one job description – to serve humanity in the best way of which they are capable.

The Shift is a cosmic event. It is much larger than this planet or this solar system. It is an upgrade in energy and consciousness that affects all of us. The Earth itself will ‘rise in the heavens’, meaning that, when the time comes for that decisive step forward into the New Earth, the soil beneath your feet will rise in vibration into fourth density just as your physical body will. Humanity will rise in frequency along with the body of the planet.

When the time comes, every physical thing around you will move forward and relocate into a fourth-density frequency of manifestation in, as predicted in the Bible, the twinking of an eye.

Those already existing in fourth density – the spirits of those who have passed on from the physical realm – will also move into a higher sub-layer of existence. This is what is meant by the prophecy in the Bible, that “the dead shall be risen.” Because people inhabiting spirit bodies are already in fourth density, it will be easier to communicate with them once we move into fourth density, even though we will be in a different sub-layer.

Once the mass shift to heart-centered consciousness has occurred, humankind will look back at this present era as something that was very different. Just as you mature and gain wisdom, you view the past differently from the way you experienced it at the time. So, too, will we view the Old Reality differently as we gain wisdom in the New Reality.

The timing of the main event of The Shift – the translation of the mass mind of humanity into heart-centered, fourth-density consciousness is not known. It depends entirely on how much the pioneers of human consciousness – people like yourself – develop their own heart-centered awareness in order to open that pathway in consciousness for more people to follow.

Just as there are those who want The Shift to happen soon, there are those who wish to delay it as much as possible, even though delaying a cosmic event is not within their power. Today, fear is being constantly fed to the public about the possibility of terrorist events. Fear delays conscious evolution and self-empowerment.

As long as there is a risk of terrorist events, it is common sense to follow any intuitive warnings that keep coming to your attention about places to avoid. Your soul won’t let you be in the wrong place at the wrong time provided you listen to those intuitive warnings that we all run into at some point in our lives.

One of our greatest gifts we can offer humankind is to stay the course in our spiritual awakening. Stay the course by focusing on heart-centered consciousness regardless of events that conspire to fill people with fear. Then, The Shift will happen sooner rather than later.

Traditional Ascension

Posted by Admin on June 17, 2012

by Owen K Waters

There are two types of ascension. One is the ascension of humanity to a higher level of physical consciousness, as in The Shift, which is ongoing today. The other is the traditional form of ascension, where the devotee develops their spiritual capability to the highest state possible while in a human body.

The human energy system is attuned via the chakras to the first-density through the seventh-density (or ‘dimensional’) layers of consciousness. Seventh density, where cosmic consciousness occurs, is accessed through the full activation of the crown chakra, which is located just above the head.

When the devotee is capable of raising the full aspect of the kundalini life energy within their spine to the crown chakra, and successfully bringing it back down the spine under conscious control, then they are almost ready for ascension. When their skill increases and they are able to fully manipulate the full power of kundalini at will, then they will become ready for the traditional form of ascension.

During that initiation, their physical bodies are transformed into a more subtle energy form – one which can be taken in or out of physical manifestation at will. This enables the person to relocate via conscious will to other places and also to the different density layers of consciousness above the physical world.

Initiates then have the choice of leaving the Earth to continue their learning in a wide variety of other locations in the cosmos, or staying here to serve humanity among the Spiritual Hierarchy of Earth. This organization consists of over 100,000 ascended men and women from all races of humanity which is based in the higher realms of consciousness above this earth plane.

Their function is to hold the light for humanity. Because humanity is focused in the third-density physical world and the fourth-density spirit world, the higher densities are devoid of most human presence. Being based in the realms of upper fourth density through sixth density, the Spiritual Hierarchy fills in the vacuum between the seventh-density consciousness of planet Earth and the third- and fourth-density focus of humanity.

By invoking and channeling spiritual light, they hold the light for humanity and fill what would otherwise be a vacuum in the density layers of human existence on Earth. This continual act of service to humanity brings about the energetic balance which makes human existence possible in the physical and the spirit worlds.

The sixth-density realm of consciousness is home to the great masters of human history, such as Jesus and the Buddha. We have never been left alone in our search for the way back to God. Many world teachers have graced the physical realm with their presence and then ascended into the higher realms to be of even greater service to humanity.

In the sixth-density archangelic realm, such masters are capable of splitting their consciousness into thousands of parts so that they can serve the many demands that are placed upon them. For example, imagine the enormous demand placed upon the Master Jesus by millions of people attending Easter Sunday church services all at one time. Whenever two or more are gathered in his name, he is present with them in spirit. Whenever someone prays to him for healing or spiritual support, he responds accordingly.

Now, imagine the huge field of consciousness that such a one must possess in order to be able to split his attention into thousands of parts at one time. The biggest miracle of all time must surely be how, two thousand years ago, such a huge presence managed to fit into one small physical body!

The lesson for us all is that human consciousness is variable in size. Your physical brain may be approximately the same size as everyone else’s, but your mind – your nonphysical field of consciousness – is variable. Growth in consciousness is, literally, growth in the size of your mind because the mind is independent of the brain. The physical brain is little more than a receiver, processor and transmitter of thoughts. Your mind is the part that lives on for ever and grows with the experience that you gain in life after life. Your subconscious memories of past incarnations are held in your immortal mind, not your mortal brain.

Ascension is a gateway through which we will all eventually pass. The members of the Spiritual Hierarchy are the early pioneers in this field. Meanwhile, all of us face a more immediate form of ascension. We are about to transform from third-density physical existence into fourth-density physical existence.

Next week’s article: Ascension for All – how humanity will ascend into a more subtle physical form.
