A Hathor Planetary Meditation

Through Tom Kenyon

Spatial Cognizance

 

Your world is in the midst of an immense metamorphosis.

It is like a giant serpent shedding its old skin. New realities are emerging as old realities are being sloughed off. As an embodied being in the midst of this radical transformation the challenges facing you may seem, at times, overwhelming.

We have referred to this process in previous communications, and for a larger context for this message we would refer you to four previous messages we have given: Escalation of Chaotic Nodes and The Dismantling of 3-D Reality,Transitions States, The Fifth Perspective: Transcending Time and Space, and Restoration. (Note: Click on the underlined links above or go to the Hathor section of the website, http://www.tomkenyon.com)

From our perspective the Sixth Mass Extinction, which we have referred to in previous messages, is unfolding at an accelerated pace. Weather anomalies are on the rise, which shall continue, resulting in challenges to agriculture and the world’s food supply. And the clashes between cultural values, international relations, social and economic institutions will continue to destabilize the world. This destabilization is due to an increase of Chaotic Nodes, which we have also discussed extensively in previous messages.

These Chaotic Nodes are the result of multiple inter-locking phenomena. The reasons for the increased intensity of these inter-locking Chaotic Nodes is attributable to a combination of factors. Some of it is cosmic in its origins, some of it is due to randomness, and some of it is a result of manmade influences.

Your collective experience of perceived time is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. And the “pressure waves” of this accelerated perception of time is due to the heightened pace of newly emerging technologies that you are becoming increasingly dependent upon.

The increased pace of data you have to process is beyond your capability as a biological organism to cope with, and you are shifting—as a culture—to a technologically-based reality.

As a result of this dependence upon technology you are entering a type of techno-servitude. And as with all new radical technologies there are good sides and bad sides to this reality.

Were you a truly benevolent species, the acceleration of your technological culture could advance the quality of all life, but you are not collectively a benevolent species. And some of the newly emerging technologies that could enhance planetary life are being commandeered by forces that wish to control and enslave.

At the same time there are benevolent forces also working with these new technologies to improve the quality of life. As a result of these opposing agendas, the future impact of technology upon Earth and your collective destiny is yet to be determined.

Returning to the metaphor of the serpent shedding its old skin, how do you ride such a creature? How do you function in a world where multiple realities are in conflict with each other? How do you survive, intact, the accelerated pace of change, and who is it that will survive this—meaning what is your true nature?

From one perspective what you are experiencing in your world is catastrophic in nature. From another perspective it is a highly potent evolutionary catalyst. In other words, the metamorphosis of your world could destroy you or propel you into higher states of consciousness. The choice, at an individual level, between personal destruction or an ascent into a higher dimensional reality is yours.

The purpose of this message is not to address the planetary challenges facing humanity and other life forms that reside upon your Earth. Rather our focus is on what you can do, as an individual, in the midst of such intense challenges.

The information in this message comes from the Aethos, the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth dimensions of our Hathorian reality.  From the perspective of the Hathors who reside in the Aethos, your cosmos (as well as ours) is only one of many, and all of these innumerable “universes” as well as the beings who dwell within them, are all perceived as illusory dreamlike displays of holographic light.

In other words, your reality, as well as ours, is fundamentally a temporary illusion brought about through holographic projections of light, transitory in nature, insubstantial and magical in nature.

The beings who reside in the Aethos are our spiritual teachers, for they have transcended the illusory effects of projected holographic light that most beings perceive as reality. The Aethos has, instead, fully entered into the very ground of consciousness itself.

You also possess this innate ground of consciousness, but it is obscured by your embodiment in time and space. Your nervous system is hard-wired into your five senses. This is a biological imperative and necessity for your physical survival, but the ground of your consciousness transcends all sensory phenomena.

At the moment of your biological death you are faced with infinity, specifically the infinite nature of your own spacious awareness.

In this message the Aethos is presenting a sound meditation and a method that allows you to make direct contact with your own spacious awareness and transcend the limitations of sensory-based reality as well as perceived time and space.

We are dividing this message into two portions.

In this message we are presenting the fundamental sound meditation and a basic method for making contact with your own spacious awareness—what we refer to as Spatial Cognizance. In the next message we will present a more harmonically complex sound meditation as well as explore some of the advanced applications of the method.

As we said earlier, all technologies, regardless of their nature, are two-edged swords. They can be used in positive ways or in negative ways. Earlier, we were discussing this topic in relationship to the external technologies you are becoming increasingly dependent on.

But now we are sharing an inner technology of consciousness.

It is also a two-edged sword.

The sole reason this method is being given is to empower you to transcend and transform the multiple realities you are facing. This is accomplished by temporarily removing the obstacles within your awareness to the spacious nature of your own consciousness. By making contact with the infinite reality of your own Mind (i.e., your transcendent nature), you can experience a type of freedom, contentment, bliss and happiness even in the midst of difficult and challenging situations.

While some of you reading this may have already made contact with the ground of consciousness, most human beings are caught in the web of their sensory experience.

When you make contact with your own spacious awareness, i.e., Spatial Cognizance, you are able to deal with difficult situations more effectively. This is because you do not identify yourself as being solely bound by any situation. Rather you reside in an expanded state of Mind in which you do not feel the pressure of sensory experience as you normally do.

As you progress into greater mastery of Spatial Cognizance, you understand that the situations you face are not how they appear. They are not as solid, or unmovable, as you perceive them to be. They are temporary standing wave patterns of holographic light. And you see the magical nature of all phenomena, whether they are deemed to be “good” or “bad.”

And because you possess an expanded state of awareness, you can affect situations with greater mastery. It is as if you are above the situation, rather than trapped in its web. This ability will serve you immeasurably as your world spirals into multiple Chaotic Nodes interlocking to create massive tsunamis of physical, mental, spiritual and planetary change.

Dealing with yourself and your world from a more expanded state of awareness is the right use of Spatial Cognizance.

But there is a danger in that some of you might use Spatial Cognizance as a means to escape the 3-D realities of your life. This is the other side of the sword metaphorically speaking.

Indeed, from our perspective, more and more human beings are entering quasi-psychotic states of mind. Witness the increase of irrational destructive behavior all over the world. These harmful types of behavior are paradoxically a type of escape through the act of mindless ruination.  Another kind of escapism is to reside in a bubble of quasi-contentment, happiness and bliss, paying no attention to anything or anyone else around you. This is not spiritual mastery; it is an escape into delusion.

If, however, you make authentic contact with Spatial Cognizance and meet the changing realities of your world with this state of Mind, you will forge a transcendent transformational power that will benefit you in innumerable ways.

The Nature of Spatial Cognizance

The ground of consciousness, (i.e., Spatial Cognizance) is the deepest space within you and transcends all phenomena including the world you perceive through your senses.

By its very nature Spatial Cognizance is imbued with the qualities of contentment, happiness and bliss. These are inherent and exist independently regardless of what might be happening in the sensory and/or mental/emotional realms of your existence. In other words, while you may be angry, sad or mired in other “negative” thoughts, emotions or situations, the ground of consciousness is unaffected by these. This is one reason Spatial Cognizance can be such an invaluable aid to you as you deal with the accelerating pace of change in your world.

It is also spacious in nature (meaning it is infinite and unbounded like space itself), and it is self-aware. It is what might be called pure awareness—awareness being aware of itself.

When you have fully entered into Spatial Cognizance, you are at peace and have a clear sense of being unbounded or unfettered by the situations around you. This is another invaluable quality of Spatial Cognizance (i.e., the ground of consciousness).

For human beings, the most efficient way to enter Spatial Cognizance is through the spatial abilities of the right cerebral hemisphere. This part of your neurophysiology is a master of spatial perception and by leaning on this innate ability you will more easily enter into a direct experience of Spatial Cognizance.

The Sound Meditation

The Basic Spatial Cognizance Sound Meditation is 5:56 minutes in length. You can, as you wish, listen to it back-to-back multiple times especially as you more deeply explore its potentials.

It is best to listen to this with stereo headphones or ear buds so that the sound patterns are your primary sensory input. Due to the fact that you are directing your attention to inner space during the meditation, do not listen to it in situations requiring alertness. The meditation should be the sole focus of your attention.

Upon the first striking of the bowl, recall the feeling of a large space. It doesn’t matter what the space is so long as it feels large and spacious to you. It could be the top of a mountain, a large open area or any spacious environment of your choosing. The type of space you choose to work with is immaterial. What is important is that it feels large.

As you continue to listen to the sounds, make sure you are feeling the sense of space. You are not visualizing space or thinking about it. You are re-creating the felt sense of being surrounded by a very large space. Visualizing or thinking about space will not activate the parts of your brain/mind that generate a direct experience of Spatial Cognizance. Only the felt sense of being surrounded by a large space will activate the neural pathways that will allow you to experience your own spacious nature.

After you have generated the felt-sense of being surrounded by a large space, become aware of yourself being aware of the sense of spaciousness. This simple act of being aware that you are aware of spaciousness is the seed of immense insight and mastery. Do not be deceived by its everyday simplicity.

Once you hold the felt sense of spaciousness while being aware that you are aware of space, you have entered the foyer, so to speak, into the vast mansion of Spatial Cognizance.

There is one final yet crucial to step to this process—the addition of a highly coherent emotion such as appreciation or gratitude. Adding these emotional qualities will insure that you enter a higher dimension of Spatial Cognizance.

In fact, appreciation or gratitude are the benchmarks of all higher dimensional realities that are benevolent in nature.

For those of you who may have difficulty generating appreciation or gratitude spontaneously, consider this: your ability to be self-aware is one of the greatest gifts you possess. This seed of self-awareness travels with you when you die and allows you to experience the non-corporeal worlds. Regardless of what world you reincarnate in or even if you incarnate as an energy or sprit-being, your innate capacity to be self-aware travels with you. Thus, cultivating self-awareness and mastering it is a tremendous and indispensable boon to your self-realization.

Refinement and Use of the Sound Meditation

For those of you who are familiar with the art of psycho-navigation you can enhance your experience of spaciousness in this manner: imagine that you are not only surrounded by a large space but there is no boundary between your inner space and the outer space around you. In other words, the boundary setting mechanisms of your consciousness are temporarily suspended, allowing your awareness to expand into and identify with a much larger space than you are normally used to. This will activate the deeper potentials of your right hemisphere and its spatial capabilities.

In a more advanced application of this principle you expand your sense of space to include the entire universe and all the worlds, as well as all the multitudinous dimensional realities that comprise your cosmos. Merging into spaciousness in this manner will, for most people, create the most profound shift in spatial perception.

If you engage these expanded methods of accessing spaciousness it is important to return to your normal sense of identity after the meditation is complete. This is most easily accomplished by simply opening your eyes and engaging your peripheral nervous system. Gently rub your ear lobes, as the major meridians of of your body’s organ systems can be found within your ears as well as your feet. If you find it difficult to return to 3D reality after a deep exploration of spacious awareness, you could also rub your legs, arms and torso, which will stimulate your brain/mind complex to process external stimuli and return you to normal sensory reality.

The sound meditation itself is designed to support your right hemisphere, to shift your focus of attention into a feeling of expanded space. In its simplest application you would simply sit with this meditation engaging the steps we have described so that it culminates in your being aware that you are aware of spaciousness conjoined with a sense of appreciation or gratitude.

You could then, if you wish, work with it as solely as a sound meditation that you return to from time to time as a means to loosen your perception and begin the process of perceiving the ground of consciousness that transcends your sensory experience of the world.

The ultimate purpose of this sound meditation is, however, to train your brain/mind to enter Spatial Cognizance at will. And then in your day-to-day life enter Spatial Cognizance without the use of the sound meditation. This simple act will eventually train your brain/mind to attend to two realities simultaneously—the reality of Spatial Cognizance (and the freedom of spacious awarenessthat it brings) along with the act of dealing with the realities of your 3-D existence.

This will eventually give you greater mastery over the situations you confront in your life because you will not identify with the web of sensory-based reality. You will instead, identify with your ultimate nature (i.e. transcendent awareness). Your sense of Self will have expanded far beyond the confines of your personal identity to include the infinite spaciousness of the ground consciousness. This type of Spatial Cognizance both transcends and yet paradoxically includes your personal identity. With this greater range of self-awareness. you will better be able to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. And, at the moment of your death, you will more likely have developed the ability to decide where you wind up next—meaning what lifetime or what dimensional existence you reside in.

This is one of the greatest gifts of the Aethos, and it is being offered to you as your world enters a most perilous passage. Regardless of what you sense occurring around you we encourage you to make contact with your own Spatial Cognizance, for it is a great ally, a transformer of destiny and brings with it a cornucopia of non-ordinary abilities that will benefit both you and your changing world.

The Hathors

November 12, 2017

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

Two things struck me about this particular Hathor message.

The first was their view regarding Earth’s current turmoil. They have alluded to increased planetary difficulties in several past messages, but this one has the strongest language yet. I am referring specifically to a paragraph that reads:

“From one perspective what you are experiencing in your world is catastrophic in nature. From another perspective it is a highly potent evolutionary catalyst. In other words, the metamorphosis of your world could destroy you or propel you into higher states of consciousness. The choice, at an individual level, between personal destruction or an ascent into a higher dimensional reality is yours.”

I think this idea of destruction versus an ascent into higher dimensional realities is the actual nexus or vital point of this message.

The Hathors are, in my opinion, calling a spade a spade. And they are saying that all life forms on Earth are in peril.

As a resource to counter this perilous passage, they are imparting an unusual resource they call Spatial Cognizance, and they say when the method is joined with the sound meditation of that name, you can directly experience the spacious (i.e., infinite) nature of your own consciousness.

This ability to experience yourself as spacious awareness will, they say, allow you to navigate the massive changes we all face with greater mastery because you won’t feel the pressure of sensory-based reality as you normally do. There is a type of grace that arises when we experience situations from a larger internal space that is self-aware.

The Hathors also say that in the more advanced phases of Spatial Cognizance, you will “see” through the illusion of this world as a solid reality. You will perceive, instead, that all things are actually transitory displays of holographic light and that all multi-verses are magical in nature.

Having worked with both the sound meditation and the method they described, I can attest that they work to create a greater sense of internal space that is self-aware. And this does allow me to be more resourceful when, and the operative word is—when—I engage Spatial Cognizance in my day-to-day life. In other words, if I don’t consciously engage this resource I can easily get caught up in the stresses of my own sensory, mental/emotional creations as well as the pressures of an accelerating timeline.

The second thing that struck me about this message is that Spatial Cognizance is essentially an unusual way to enter a yogic trance, a non-ordinary state of mental perception called Samadhi (or inner directed awareness), In its deeper states, Samadhi (i.e., Spatial Cognizance) reveals an infinite and spacious state of consciousness that is blissful and self-aware.

While the method and context of Spatial Cognizance is certainly unique, it unquestionably shares some of the philosophical territory discussed in the yogas of ancient India that trace their roots back to the Upanishads and also to Dzogchen, or The Great Perfection, that reached its zenith in Tibet.

Final Thoughts

Spatial Cognizance—both the sound meditation and the method for working with this state of spacious awareness—is certainly not for everyone.  If you don’t feel a resonance with the sound meditation or the method, just move on.

If you do feel a connection with this approach, it is perhaps due to aDimensional Tendency. The Hathors mentioned, in passing, Dimensional Tendencies in one of their previous messages. When I asked them what they meant by this term in more detail, they said that Dimensional Tendencies arevibrational bandwidths of subtle energy that affect consciousness.

These patterns of subtle energy arise from personalizing experiences, especially powerful ones. These patterns could have originated in previous life experiences, incarnations or in other non-physical dimensions of consciousness. The net result of these subtle energies is that they affect how we respond to our experience of the world and how we act in the world.

If you feel drawn to the concept and method of Spatial Cognizance as presented by the Hathors, it is perhaps due to the possibility that you may have explored the illusory nature of “sensory reality” in previous lifetimes and/or in other dimensions of consciousness. In other words, you created a Dimensional Tendency that would propel you to explore this kind of esoteric knowledge in future lifetimes.

Making the effort to master Spatial Cognizance is, in my opinion, well worth the effort. And if you choose to explore this remarkable state of Mind, I wish you great serendipity in your explorations.

Finally, may the many attainments you will have earned from mastering Spatial Cognizance be of benefit to you, to all your relations and to all sentient beings.

On the Nature of Boundaries – Tom Kenyon

On the Nature of Boundaries

by Tom Kenyon

Awhile back, at one of my workshops, a woman approached me quite upset.

She had been having lunch with other participants in the seminar and the topic of trust had come up. She admitted to the group that she had trouble trusting others. Her new-found friends began to immediately offer ways to help her.

One suggested affirmations like “I fully and completely trust the universe.” Another offered a visualization exercise to see herself as a flower of light fully open to the world. A third offered her a private healing session at half price. Everyone at the table seemed to agree that if she trusted enough, the universe would mirror itself back to her that way.

In other words, she should be trusting to everyone and then they would act in a trustworthy way. This person, new to personal growth, left the group quite dismayed. She found me in a hallway between sessions and asked if she could run something by me.

“What do you think?” she asked. “Can I trust the universe?”

“Trust the universe to do what?” I asked.

She blinked and proceeded with her line of thought. “They say I need to trust more”

“Trust whom,” I asked.

“Everyone.”

“Rubbish,” I said.

She blinked again and a slight smile came across her face.

“Tell me,” I asked. “Who in your life, right now, do you find trouble trusting?”

“My boyfriend,” she responded without a moment’s hesitation.

“And what has he done?” I asked.

“Well he says he loves me, but he has cheated on me twice. I wonder if I can trust him.” ”

How did it feel when you found him cheating?” I asked. “It hurt.”

“I think that your natural gut-wisdom is telling you to put up a boundary to protect yourself.”

“But is it spiritual?” she asked, truly perplexed.


As a psychotherapist it has been my observation, for some time now, that much in the New Age is psychologically dysfunctional. I had an engineer friend who referred to these New Age “truisms” as NABS, or New Age Bullshit. They are like those little snacks you eat at cocktail parties. They fill you up for a bit, and give the illusion of nutrition, but they are empty calories.I think that one of the NABS currently in vogue is the notion that one should let down one’s guard and be fully and completely open. As a therapist I think this idea is potentially dangerous and here’s why.We have many levels to ourselves. At one level, the transpersonal, we may be spirit, unbounded by time and space, but at another level we are mammals, like dogs, and cats, whales, dolphins and monkeys, to name a few. We have biology. And our psychological health depends upon balancing our transpersonal (out-of-time) aspects of “self” with our personal (bound by time) aspects.At the level of our biology, our body wisdom understands quite clearly the need for boundaries. Every cell has a cell wall that keeps out the world. Any cell that lets down its guard is quickly going to perish. The cellular walls set a boundary for the cellular processes inside to continue. The walls also keep out toxic invaders like viruses, bacteria and other biochemical demons.

The message? Without boundaries, there is no life.

However, the cellular walls also have little openings to the world. These portals are guarded, but if the cell senses that a visitor is beneficial, it will open the molecular doors. If the visitor is toxic, however, the doors remain closed. Among the beneficial visitors are things like oxygen and nutrition. Without these “life messengers” the cells will eventually die. The precarious forces within our animal bodies responsible for continuing life depend upon a balance between boundaries and openness.

In other words, at a cellular level, our biology has an innate wisdom to distinguish between something toxic and something life-enhancing. Biological systems set up boundaries between themselves and that which is toxic while, at the same time, they open themselves to that which brings increased life.

In the psychological realm the same principle holds true. There are situations and people that are life-enhancing and others that are toxic. The psychological task for mental and spiritual health is to distinguish between toxic people and those that are healthy. Unfortunately, while our bodies naturally create healthy boundaries, we have to learn how to create both mental and emotional boundaries between us and the world. For many of us, growing up in dysfunctional families, the skills of compassionate boundary making were never taught.

And what do I mean by compassionate boundary making? Well to explain this, I think I probably need to discuss “judgment” and “discrimination.” They are not the same thing. And this will lead us directly to the woman’s question at the beginning, “Is it spiritual to set a boundary?”

Quite simply, discrimination is assessing the apparent truth of a situation while judgment is placing a value upon the situation as “good” or “bad.” For instance, back to the young woman and her quandary about her “two-timing” boyfriend. His actions hurt her, or to be “psycho-politically correct,” she allowed herself to be hurt by his actions.

That he did this twice and might do it again is discrimination. It is logic, simple logic. This is discrimination, the act of discriminating apparent truth from bullshit. There is no judgment in this, just observation. She has observed his behavior and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that he might (probably will) do it again. If she wishes to avoid getting hurt again, she would do well to set up an emotional boundary and to become detached from his advances. This is discrimination in action.

This is different from judgment. If she were to decide that he was a “shiftless and worthless bastard,” for instance, she would be placing a value judgment on him. Discrimination, by nature, is neutral; it is not emotionally charged. It is simply a mental recognition about a reality. There is no blame or judgment in this, simply observation.

Compassionate Boundary Making first requires a discriminating look at the situation. One must clearly see the situation the way it is without romanticizing and without trying to make it into something it isn’t. If the person or situation is not healthy for you, you remove yourself. Period. End of sentence.

In the process of removing yourself from the situation you resist the temptation to judge the person or situation, as “good” or “bad.” Even though you might not understand his or her motives, and even though you might feel hurt by the situation, you give yourself and the “offender” the gift of spaciousness to do what they need to do — with one clear limitation, so long as it does not impinge on you.

I love what a southern grandmother once told a friend of mine, “Your rights end where my nose begins.” How beautifully direct and pragmatic that statement is!

One psychological task facing all of us is to distinguish between what is healthy and unhealthy. Psychological maturity requires that we act on our own behalf to separate ourselves from that which damages us. How we separate ourselves from those things that are toxic is a matter of personal style more than anything else.

As Paul Simon said in one of his songs, “Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover,” there are many ways to separate ourselves from toxic situations and people.


For those of us striving to be more conscious in our actions, and perhaps, more spiritual, the task requires compassion as well. But compassion does not mean becoming a “door mat” for someone to walk all over you. Rather compassion means creating a mental and emotional space in yourself to allow other people to be themselves, even if you don’t understand or agree with them. Compassion does not, however, mean that we let others intrude into our emotional space. That is submission, which is not the same thing.As we grow in psychological and spiritual strength, we may find that we are no longer comfortable with certain persons or situations. What seemed to be nourishing or at least neutral, is now perceived as toxic. This sometimes happens with family members, spouses and friends. I am noticing that, for many of us, this phenomenon looks like it is increasing. Perhaps it is because things are speeding up and more seems to be happening in less time. Perhaps it is simply the price of self-evolution.As we pass over a line in ourselves from unconscious to conscious (I should probably say semi-conscious, to be more exact), we may find ourselves having to set boundaries with past relationships. This can be very challenging to say the least. For those of us caught in this dilemma, I suggest the Way of the White Cloud.The Way of the White Cloud is to see all things and all situations as essentially devoid of substance. What appears to be very real at the moment becomes only a memory. The apparent solidity of things and the gravity of a situation is actually a mirage, an illusion. Buddhists call this samsara. And we are caught up in it by virtue of having an embodiment. The art of living, from this viewpoint, is to live and take action without getting caught up in the snares of the illusion.

When clients get stuck in interpersonal conflict, I sometimes have them imagine going into the future, maybe a hundred years and look back at the situation. In almost every case the charge is dissolved. The hostility gives way to a recognition of impermanence. Why, the “wisdom mind” asks, should we get caught up in this when it is so insignificant from the vantage of expanded vision? In the realms of samsara, nothing is permanent. All is transient, like white clouds. By becoming aware of this truth, we see that we are all in the same boat, so to speak, the boat of samsara, or illusion.

It may look like someone or something has “the upper hand” at the moment, but that is true, only from one perspective. We all suffer, both the dominators and dominated, because we are, all of us, time-locked into time and space. We are also free and open, for a part of us is both unbounded pure consciousness and luminous light. This pure consciousness and luminous light may or may not be directly experienced by us, but it is there, nonetheless, like the clear sky hidden by clouds. Our clouds of obscuration, those thoughts, feelings and patterns of behavior that hold us in the samsaric lies of limitation come and go, like the clouds. But the clear sky is always there.

The spiritual task, for those of us desiring to live with more compassion, regardless of the lineages or traditions we follow, is to penetrate this level of ourselves, the place of pure mind and unbounded light. For the gift of this is that we become suffused with a direct knowledge of the relativity of all things. We can afford to be gracious in our dealings with ourselves and others because we recognize that things are not what they appear to be. The act of compassionate boundary making comes out of our luminous and unbounded nature.

Even though we may have been “hurt” by a particular situation or person, from the view of the transpersonal, all of this is like clouds, in one moment vividly real and in the next moment, gone. This spaciousness allows us to let others be without the need to judge, defile, or seek revenge.

For the young woman mentioned earlier, making a compassionate boundary with her boyfriend might look like her telling him three things: first, that based on his past behavior she has concluded that she cannot trust him; second, she is leaving him; and three, she holds him no ill-will. She goes on with her life and he goes on with his.

Now, this does not mean that the desire for judgment, defilement or revenge doesn’t arise in our minds especially when we perceive being hurt by another. But the spiritual discipline of not indulging these thoughts, feelings, and fantasies is a powerful niyama, (Sanskrit, meaning constraint or control). Niyamas, such as the attempt to remain harmless to oneself and others, strengthen both the soul and personal will. Besides reducing interpersonal stress, compassionate boundary making affords us real insight into the state of our own psychology.

What I mean by this is that for some of us, it may be a challenge to let someone “off the hook” who has harmed us in some way. But if it is anyone who is let “off the hook” it is ourselves, since the desire for revenge or retribution on another is an emotional and spiritual poison.

And so, to the woman I mentioned at the beginning, I would say “yes.” To set a boundary between ourselves and another can be spiritual. How it is done makes it “spiritual” or not. If the “spiritual life” is an attempt to live with an awareness of the sacredness of life, then compassionate boundary making is, in fact, aspiritual act. To set an appropriate boundary is necessary for all biological life. It is also a requirement for mental and emotional health, and I would venture to say for the “spiritual life” as well.

To say “no” to ourselves or another can sometimes be the most courageous and powerful act imaginable. And sometimes, saying “no” to someone is more “loving”(i.e., caring) than saying “yes.”

There is another piece in relation to boundary making: detachment. Finding your truth and acting on it regardless of how others might react is the benchmark of personal sovereignty. Such action requires the ability to create and hold boundaries. I am reminded in this of a story.

One day the immortal yogi, Babaji, was meditating in a forest with his chelas (disciples) up in the Himalayas. A man stumbled upon them and recognizing the great yogi, he begged to become a disciple.

Babaji refused and told the man to leave. Instead, the man followed the group wherever they went. Finally, Babaji threw rocks at him and told him to go way.

The man, distraught, told Babaji that if he, a great yogi, did not accept him as a disciple, he would cast himself off the nearby cliffs. Calmly, Babaji told him he didn’t care what he did. With these words, the man threw himself to his death on the rocks below.

Babaji went down the side of the mountain and brought the man back to life. Having dissolved immense negative karma, the man was accepted as a disciple.

Gurus are notoriously irascible. They follow impulses that we can hardly even imagine. At the very least, this is a story about spiritual boundaries. Hopefully in our journey to wholeness none of us will have to jump off a cliff; but all of us will, no doubt, have to set boundaries from time to time.

May all of us find ways to be more compassionate in our boundary making. And may we find the strength to open and say yes, when we mean yes, and the courage to say no, when we mean no. End. . . .

Taoist Stillness Practices:
Slowing the Whirly-gig of Mind

by Tom Kenyon

When I was a kid, I owned a bright steel-blue Schwinn bicycle with balloon tires. On my block it was considered really cool to attach playing cards to the spokes of one’s tires so that they would make noise. And so ever wanting to be accepted by my pre-adolescent peers, I adorned my shiny wonder with an entire pack, yes… an entire pack! I borrowed an assortment of clothes pins from my mother and attached the cards in every conceivable space. As a result, when I rode around the neighborhood, it sounded like a mad cacophony of firecrackers gone amuck.

To top off the whole thing, I attached two whirly-gigs to the handlebars. I taped them on with duct tape, one to the right and one to the left. Even back then I searched for the solace of symmetry.

Whirly-gigs for those not familiar with the term are actually pin wheels, usually made of plastic and often placed atop a wooden dowel. They spin easily. The stronger the breeze, the faster they twirl. I became fascinated by the twirling of my whirly-gigs. I would peddle as fast as I could and then watch the tiny propellers dissolve into one mass of spinning color. One day I got too caught up in watching my whirly-gigs and failed to notice that I had run off the sidewalk and into a deserted lot. The next thing I knew, I was flat on the ground, the victim of a head-on collision with a tree. My whirly-gigs were askew and the front of my bike bent. I had learned a sobering lesson–pay attention to what you are doing.

As time passed on, I gave up my bike and my whirly-gigs, but I have never lost my fondness for them or, for that matter, for bikes with balloon tires.

Now, much older, I don’t watch whirly-gigs on the handlebars of bicycles. Instead, I watch them spin inside my mind. Although it might strike you as an odd metaphor, I think our thoughts and emotions are a lot like whirly-gigs. They spin easily. It doesn’t take much for a thought or a feeling to start spinning inside our heads. Sometimes the whirly-gigs of mind spin in a nice gentle way. At times they spin so fast, they seem out of control.

It’s an odd thing, the whirly-gigs of the mind. When they start to spin, we tend to identify with the arising thoughts and feelings as our own. If the whirly-gig of the mind happens to spin in a pleasant manner, and pleasant thoughts arise, we embrace it. We say we are happy or content. If, however, the whirly-gig of our mind spins in an unpleasant direction, and we are besieged by unpleasant thoughts and feelings, we are repulsed. We say we are upset.

Most of us experience the oscillation between the two extremes of grasping (for what we want) and avoiding (what we don’t want) on a daily basis. The whirly-gig of mind is always spinning because that is its nature. In other words, it is always moving. Thoughts and feelings are always arising from this movement of the mind. And thousands of years ago, ancient sages throughout the world discovered that the source of the mind’s movement was the flow of subtle energies within our bodies. Tibetans call this lung (or the winds). Yogis call it prana, and Taoists call it chi.

Each of these alchemical systems has, in their own way, mapped out the subtle pathways responsible for the experience of thought and emotion. They describe these movements of subtle energy quite clearly and have developed means to alter their flow. The result is an inner technology that directly affects the mind and its creations (thoughts and feelings).

A quick glance at the diverse alchemical traditions of the world will reveal a striking similarity in their attitude towards the mind and its creations. Virtually every system teaches a means to still the mind. The reason for this obsession with inner stillness is that it is only in stillness that the Mind (or consciousness) can become aware of itself. Until then, we are mesmerized by the whirly-gigs of our mental experience. We identify ourselves with our thoughts and feelings instead of realizing that they come and go like clouds. And like clouds, they are ephemeral, possessing little substance.

By transcending identification with our minds (our whirly-gigs) we begin to glimpse our true identity, as pure consciousness. And as the purity of our innate consciousness rises into awareness, we begin to awaken from the dream of this world. We begin to see that we are, and have always been, eternally free. It is simply a matter of waking up from the fixated spinning of our own minds.

So the practical question becomes: how do we wake up to our own greater identity?

One path of self-realization was created by the Taoists of ancient China. And like alchemists in other cultures, they discovered the inner pathways of consciousness and their relationship to the mind.

In order to comprehend Taoist alchemy we must come to an understanding of a subtle force called chi. From the immense mystery of the Tao, which creates all worlds, but is untouched by them, there is an eternal flow of this vital force (chi).

There are many types of chi. There is, for instance, a vital force flowing out of quasars and stars, though this is quite different in quality from the chi created by a stream. When most people think about chi, they usually think about the subtle life force in air. This type of chi is most concentrated in natural areas, away from cities. This kind of vital force is strongest in large areas of tree growth, by lakes, rivers and streams, as well as by larger bodies of water like oceans. Some have speculated that this type of chi is related to negative ions, and there is evidence that this is so. But there are other types of chi as well–more subtle, more refined types of chi and these are one of the focuses of advanced Taoist alchemy.

Traditionally, Taoist sages spent much of their time as hermits in nature. In later periods, groups of men or women would form communities to pursue their alchemical search with others. But almost always, these Taoist abodes were far from cities. They were usually located in places where the chi was especially strong, often in areas designated as Dragon Points.

Dragon Points are places of convergence where one form of chi meets another. They are most dramatically seen in mountain ranges. When two ridges meet, there is often a trench or a gorge that flows down the sides of the mountains. As celestial chi (the type of chi generated in the sky) flows downward, it meets the terrestrial chi of the mountain at the point between the ridges. This is called a Dragon Point.

Where two streams or rivers converge, there is a detectable increase of chi, and this too, is called a Dragon Point. Taoist sages would search for these places and put their abodes either in the Dragon Point itself, or nearby. This made their alchemical work easier since there was a ready abundance of chi that they could draw upon in their practices.

Thought, Time and Breath

As with other forms of internal alchemy, the Taoist practitioner must train the mind to enter prolonged states of stillness. This quiescence of mind is crucial since the Tao can only be experienced in mental silence, and many of the alchemical transformations of Taoist alchemy also require a silent mind as well.

There are many classes of stillness practices. Some of them involve movement such as Tai Chi, and others involve sitting meditation, such as the Celestial Gate, which I will discuss in a moment.

In these stillness practices, the mind is eventually led to a state of deep quietude. In actual practice, especially at the beginning, there may be a flurry of mental activity. Thoughts come and go, sometimes in a torrent, sometimes in a trickle. Eventually the practitioner notices that the speed of his or her thought seems to be slowing down. There seems to be more space between thoughts, and at some point they stop altogether, if only briefly.

The practitioner also notices that the breath changes during these states. There is a tendency for the breath to slow down as thought slows down. And when there is no thought, there is often no breath, or it is very shallow. This is significant for several reasons.

From a neurological standpoint we could say that this is because the brain waves of the practitioner are in the lower states of alpha and/or theta where the breath naturally gets slower. Research on meditation has noted, by the way, that these states also produce a decrease in muscle tension, heart rate, blood pressure and respiration, all of which are quite positive in their stress reducing effects. In fact, studies have shown that those who practice forms of meditation that produce these effects, as in the Taoist stillness practices, are generally less stressed than their counterparts who do not meditate

Several years ago, about an hour before twilight, I chose to do the stillness practice known as the Celestial Gate (also referred to as Heaven’s Gate) in a park. As twilight descended around me, I was still doing the practice and noticed that my breathing had stopped. Not only this, but thought seemed to be arrested. My mind was clear and as calm as the surface of a tranquil lake. But most impressive to me, in the moment, was that time also seemed to have stopped, and I was suspended in a timeless dimension of mind.

I decided to walk back to my car as it was getting dark, and the trip took me twenty minutes or so. I noted that the impulse to go back to the car came as a sensation as if it had come from deep within my body. It did not come as a thought. I did not think, “now I need to get back to the car.” This non-speaking state of mind seemed oddly amusing to me at the time. During my saunter I noticed that my breath was very shallow, even though the trail back to the car was over hilly terrain. That timeless feeling was still very strong, and I seemed to move over the hills with little effort.

Ironically, when I saw my car in the parking lot I remembered an appointment later that evening, and I spontaneously took a deep breath. My breath had returned to normal, and that feeling of timelessness vanished. I was firmly rooted back in time.

There is a fascinating relationship between the perception of timelessness and the cessation of breath. In Taoist meditation practice this suspension of the breath is often encountered when entering the deeper states of mental quiescence.

As a psychotherapist working in the area of psychoneuroimmunology, or how our thoughts and feelings affect immunity, I find the time paradox even more fascinating.

A study conducted with patients admitted to an emergency room due to cardiac arrest reveal some fascinating information about the interplay between body and mind. During recovery, these patients were asked some questions about their perception of time. Based on their responses, researchers could predict who would recover and who would die from another heart attack. Those patients who said that they were letting things go to take care of themselves and who reported feeling that there would be more than enough time to do what needed to be done, were more likely to recover and avoid a second heart attack. Those patients, however, who stated that they were under tremendous pressure to do what had been left undone and who felt that they were running out of time, invariably suffered a higher incidence of death due to a second cardiac arrest.

None of this would come as a surprise to a Taoist sage. From the standpoint of Taoism, our modern time-crunch world is disturbing to both health and spiritual attainment. We need to bring our time-crunched mind back to tranquility on a regular basis or suffer the ill effects of our modern age.

I have taught a simple form of the Taoist stillness practice to hundreds if not thousands of people by now. Everyone has expressed a deep appreciation for a method of meditation that is so quick and easy to enter into. Those who have never been able to meditate due to continual thought (inner dialogue) are especially appreciative of this method since thought is not a hindrance to the practice.

The Celestial Gate Meditation

The Celestial Gate Meditation practice is based on Dragon Points. Dragon Points, as I mentioned earlier, are places of convergence, where one form of chi meets another.

There are several Dragon Points within the human body. The Celestial Gate is just one of these, and happens to be a place where heavenly chi (a very subtle form of chi) flows into the body and meets the terrestrial (or earth) chi of the body itself. Thus this place is an energetically charged area, and Taoist sages discovered a long time ago how to take advantage of it.

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. You can lie down if you wish, but this makes some people go to sleep. For a moment, just notice your breath. Don’t change it in any way; just watch it. Notice the rhythm and the depth of your breath. Then after a moment, become aware of the space about an inch behind the bridge of the nose. Imagine that there is an opening about one inch square in this area. This is the Celestial Gate. All you do is focus on it.

Do not concentrate on it. Just be aware of it. If you are having thoughts or fantasies, this is not a problem. Let them continue on their merry way. Just let some part of your attention be on the opening. You can think all you want about anything you want and the practice will still work so long as some part of your attention is on the Celestial Gate (the opening).

As you continue to focus at the gate, you will notice that thoughts eventually seem to slow down. After a while, there will be more space between the thoughts or fantasies. And eventually they will stop altogether, if only temporarily. It is during these moments that you might find that your breath has stopped or has become very shallow. This is natural, and is, in fact, a sign that you are entering the deeper states of stillness. It is in these deepest states of quiescence where there is no breath and no thought that contact with the Tao takes place.

Doing it for about five minutes will usually give you a clear sense of how this practice alters awareness. Beginners usually take several minutes to settle down into the light stages of mental stillness. But over time these periods get longer and one feels more confident about how to enter these deeply relaxing states of mind.

Research has shown that stillness practices, such as this, are very effective at counteracting some of the negative effects of stress. Just twenty minutes once or twice a day can make a tremendous difference in your sense of wellbeing.

Don’t let the simplicity of this meditation fool you. It is a profound stillness practice that will eventually lead you to a direct experience of the Tao itself. Gently extend the periods of stillness, so that you become acquainted with and comfortable with these deep places of quiet.

In Taoism, the deepest secrets are revealed only by the Tao itself. You cannot find the deeper alchemical truths in books for it is forbidden to write about them. Thus, meditations like the Celestial Gate are cosmic keys. They can, if practiced faithfully over time, open the inner doors of perception.

But you must turn the key to open the lock. Just thinking about it won’t create transformation. If you wish to experience the mysteries of the Tao for yourself, don’t just read about them. Turn the key and walk through the door.

A Hathor Planetary Message
Through Tom Kenyon

A Stream from the Higher Worlds

In our last planetary message called the Aetherium, we shared a sound meditation to help you transit through intensifying levels of world chaos by decreasing stress and by increasing coherency in your body and mind.

In this message we are giving you another sound meditation called“A Stream from the Higher Worlds.” The purpose of this sonic ally is to assist you to purify deeply held psycho-spiritual as well as emotional negativity and toxicity.

As your world enters an ever-larger Chaotic Node there is a corresponding increase in hostility and antagonism. Indeed, this emotional toxicity is so pervasive it can affect even the most spiritually advanced among you.

Before we get to the instructions on how to use this meditation, we would like to address a very important but complex concept. For the sake of brevity, we will do so in as short a space as possible.

Dimensional Tendencies

Whenever you enter a strong emotional response and its corresponding thought forms you have entered a specific dimension of consciousness. This is a vibratory field of energy that exists independently of you and is co-created by all sentient beings who are experiencing the same emotions and thought forms—including yourself.

Let us take two emotions as an example: anger and hatred. From our perspective your collective is experiencing an extreme polarization. If you experience anger at something that has occurred (as you perceive it), the neurochemical reality of your body changes. If this anger response escalates into hatred then you have entered a very toxic dimensional reality, and due to the nature of the interconnectedness of dimensional realities you will be sharing the same energetic with all beings who are in the same energetic and emotion.

We want to be very precise in how we address this. There is nothing wrong with anger. Indeed, at times anger is the correct response to a situation. It sets a needed boundary. When, however, anger escalates into hatred it becomes a toxic poison to your psycho-spiritual nature.

By the term Dimensional Tendencies, we mean that all human beings (and many animals as well) have perceptual and emotional habits that are deeply ingrained—thus the term Tendency.
These tendencies can lead you into habitual emotional responses such as depression, hostility or hatred—just to name three “negative” emotional dimensions from the cornucopia of human experience.

The challenge with Dimensional Tendencies is that they can color your life with thought forms and emotional responses that are not of your conscious creation, but rather they are driven by forces (i.e., habits) in your unconscious mind.

Some Dimensional Tendencies—such as the tendency to loving kindness, compassion and self-love—are positive in their effects. We will have more to say about this in future messages, but we wish to focus, now, on the negative impact of Dimensional Tendencies so that you can be aware of these in yourself.

Dimensional Tendencies are also meme-like and in that sense they can be contagious. If someone is caught up in hatred, for example, anyone with a Dimensional Tendency to hatred—whatever the reason might be—will be prone to be stirred by hatred as well.

From our perspective your world has become venomous and is overflowing with emotional and spiritual toxicity. The purpose of this sound meditation, A Stream from the Higher Worlds, is to assist you in a most vital task as we view it, which is to purify yourself of your own deeply held emotional and spiritual toxicity.

These impressions come to you from every negative experience of your life (as well as all other lifetimes). The culminated history of your life/lives is encoded into the cellular memory of your body and mind and/or your energy field. This sound meditation utilizes the sound of a stream as well as sound codes that we (the Hathors) generated from the realms of light and the voice of Mary Magdalen, who also brings forth sound codes she has created from the realms of light. This orchestration of these elements to gently and profoundly release deeply held psycho-spiritual and emotional toxicity was created to assist you.

This meditation has two aspects, the personal and the collective. We wish to address the personal use first.

How to Work with This Sound Meditation

There are two ways of working with this sound meditation: passively or actively.

The passive method is for when you are too exhausted to focus your attention. In this instance you simply listen to the sounds and the music, letting it take you wherever.

The active form of listening is the most powerful way to work with this meditation.

Imagine that there is a diamond at your crown, at the top of your head. You do not have to see this; just imagine it in whatever ways seem natural to you.

As you hear the sound of the stream, sense, feel and imagine a crystal clear stream of liquid white light entering your body from the diamond at the crown of your head. Allow this stream of light to flow downward from your head through your entire body, allowing the stream to exit from the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet.

Imagine that this stream of light is flowing through every organ of your body, every cell and tissue, even through the very atoms that comprise your body. You may find it helpful to relax into your exhales, letting each exhale be more relaxed than the one before it. The central idea is to relax into the stream and the sound codes. They will do the work. You just relax and give the stream and sounds permission to move through ever-deeper levels of your being.

The meditation itself is 8 minutes 44 seconds in length. If you have the space and time to do so, you could listen to it multiple times, back-to-back for deeper purification, release and healing. Working with this sound meditation on a regular basis will assist you, especially if you alternate it with the Aetherium that we gave earlier.

Using this Meditation to Benefit the Collective

For those of you who feel aligned with imparting to the collective a calming purifying energy field, we invite you to use this meditation not only for yourself but also for the elevation of all humanity and for the benefit of all sentient beings—since all sentient beings experience benefit or harm from human emotions and thought forms.

The use of this meditation for the collective is not a substitute for working with it for yourself. This is because you cannot give what you do not have. You must maintain some level of calmness and clarity without toxic elements if you are to serve the collective this way.

Having said that here are the instructions for the use of this meditation for the benefit of the collective consciousness.

Imagine the Earth in front of you in whatever ways feel natural. The perspective may be that you are close or at a great distance. It does not matter. Imagine that a large diamond sits at the North Pole. As the sound of the stream begins, allow a stream of clear white light to descend from the diamond through the central axis of the Earth, flowing through and out the South Pole. Allow the stream and the sound codes to move outward throughout the entire planet imparting a calming and purifying effect.

After you have completed the meditation, either for yourself or for the world, we suggest you rest for a few minutes, if possible, in order to let the subtle energetics settle into your body and mind. This will have very beneficial effects. So our suggestion is not to rush out of the meditation too quickly.

The World Sound Meditation

We are calling for a world sound meditation using A Stream from the Higher Worlds as a means to introduce into the collective a calming and purifying effect as a direct antidote to the venomous psycho-spiritual toxicity that is moving like a plague on your planet.

The nexus point of this mediation will be in New York on October 2 at an event called The Inner Streams: Worlds of Healing. The group that will have gathered for this one-day event will spend the last thirty minutes in the World Meditation we described above.

During this sound meditation an extended version of A Stream from the Higher Worlds will be played, and we (the Hathors) will alternate with Mary Magdalen to sing on top of these sound codes. This triad of sonic and psychic forces will strike the energetic of calm planetary purification and healing.

The reason Mary Magdalen has joined us in this is due to a simple and compelling fact. The domination and subservience of women must come to an end. The feminine must be raised in balance to the masculine. The alchemical iconographic symbolism of the full Moon must be in balance to the Sun. This refers to the internal symbolism of the psyche and not to astronomical objects.

The energetic of this first striking will last for twenty-four hours. This means you can fully participate in the first energetic anytime within the first twenty-four-hour period from wherever you are.

The second harmonic will last for forty days. If you feel the deep calling to serve the higher good in this way (and have the fortitude to do so) we would ask that you engage the world meditation, whenever possible within your schedule, in that forty-day period.

Do not forget, however, in this forty-day period to engage this meditation for yourself first. In other words, clear yourself before you engage this meditation for the world.

The third striking is for those of you who are Adepts and Initiates or for those of you who are on the threshold of becoming one. You will know and sense through the power of gnosis (direct knowing) when it would be advantageous for you to engage the World Meditation.

For some of you this action will continue for many months or years. More details about the timing of the World Meditation are given below, including a link to the sound meditation itself.

We hold within the highest realms of our being, which includes theAethos—the non-dual realms of our collective realization—and within the realms of our deepest hearts that this action will benefit you and all living beings upon your planet.

We bow to you, the co-creators of your destiny.

May the light of your own higher realizations illuminate your way.
The Hathors
August 15, 2016
Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

I think the Hathors’ instructions on how to work with this unusual sound meditation are clear and straightforward. Having listened to it multiple times now, I think it is more effective if you make it the sole focus of your attention. Avoid the temptation to multitask on this one!

I have also found that listening to this sonic piece multiple times, in one listening session, takes it to much deeper levels of cleansing and purification. One of the paradoxes of this sound mediation is that although its purification can be quite deep, it does so in a deeply relaxing and nurturing manner.

When I was first approached by the Hathors to bring forward this sound meditation so close to their release of The Aetherium, I balked a bit. But then they informed me that it would be a synergetic co-creation between them and Mary Magdalen. Intrigued, I asked for more details and was told that the purpose of A Stream from the Higher Worlds was to gently cleanse and purify the body/mind from deeply held toxicity and emotional negativity by imparting unique energetics from the “higher realms of light.” They also told me that Magdalen would direct the recording process.

As far as the recording itself is concerned…the stream in the background was recorded at a remote location on Orcas Island where I often experience nature spirits. The main voice you hear is that of Magdalen, while the surrounding voices are those of the Hathors. The core of this evolutionary catalyst is actually from a short sound meditation that was recorded during The Spiral of Ascension workshop in 2015. For me this fascinating weaving of sound creates openings in my energy field for higher dimensional energies that are both purifying and healing.

While I found the meditation to be truly profound, I was stupefied by the Hathors’ and Magdalen’s request to call for a World Sound Meditation during the one-day event on October 2nd at Symphony Space in New York City titled Inner Streams: Worlds of Healing.

When I chose to create this event—many months ago—I felt there would be some very potent and healing energies released for the benefit of those who attended the New York workshop. But I never ever imagined that the Hathors would ask to add their energy to this event, much less M (as I refer to Magdalen), or for their combined energetic to be extended to the world.

Upon further dialogue, it became clear that both the Hathors and M are of the opinion that our world is so wracked with negativity and hostility, we are on the verge of self-destruction. They are thus joining forces—so to speak—to introduce a purifying and healing energetic into the human collective. This is being done for the benefit of all sentient beings on Earth, not just human. It is not an energy that is to be imposed upon humanity, rather it is an energetic of purification, release and healing that all persons can draw upon. I consider this to be a very important aspect of the World Sound Meditation. As in past global meditations directed by the Hathors, nothing is being imposed on the collective or on any individual. Rather a field of purifying and healing energy is being emanated throughout the world. All beings are free to draw this beneficial energetic into themselves or not.

In their message the Hathors addressed M’s participation in this highly unusual sound meditation, but I would like to add a few things to the mix. Many of the problems our world is facing are a direct result of the patriarchy and its domination of the feminine in all levels of existence—from the economic and social treatment of women to their perceived inferiority in many (if not most) of the world’s major religions and spiritual traditions.

At a symbolic level the Earth is our Mother, and as a collective, humanity is raping her.

Our oceans are increasingly toxic and the very fabric of our ecosystem is on the verge of collapse as reported by a growing number of the world’s ecological scientists. While many of the physical challenges to the continuation of life upon our planet are driven by physical processes created by mankind, there is a subtler force at work here. I would call it the philosophical/religious and symbolic devaluing of the feminine principle in all its many forms.

It is not, however, just the biological expression of the feminine that is so devalued and in some cases outwardly attacked. The internal and psychological expressions of the feminine are also suspect in our current patriarchal worldview. By this I am referring to the feminine part of our human psychology, which Carl Jung referred to as theanima. The anima (internal feminine) dwells in both women and men, just as the internal male, or animus, also lives in every man and woman. These are dynamic forces that affect our choice-makingas humans in very real ways.

In my opinion, until the internal anima and animus are brought into balance within our human psychology we will continue to make unbalanced choices that disregard or denigrate the feminine aspect. This antagonism against both the outer and inner feminine affects us as well as other life forms in perilous ways.

Both women and the planet are suffering from our cultural over-emphasis of the animus (male principle), which is firmly rooted in our dominant philosophies, religions and socio-economic systems. But it is not just women who suffer from this imbalance. Men also suffer because we are denied a whole range of human potentials such as depth of feelings and intuitive knowledge.

For those readers unfamiliar with “the” Mary Magdalen that will be adding her spiritual weight to the upcoming World Sound Meditation, I suggest you take a look at the Mary Magdalen Section of our website to get a feel for who this powerful feminine presence is. This Magdalen is not the prostitute of the New Testament that many Christians believe her to be.

Returning to the sound meditation, A Stream from the Higher Worldsis a subtle weaving of potent energetics for personal purification and healing, but it is also for the human collective when engaged with that purpose in mind.

Instructions for The World Sound Meditation on October 2nd2016

The World Sound Mediation will begin on October 2nd 2016 at 8:00PM EDST or at Midnight between October 2nd and 3rd GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). (Check the World Time Clock to determine the exact time in your area.) The group in New York will be in meditation for 30 minutes. During this period, an extended version of A Stream from the Higher Worlds will be played as I channel sounds from the Hathors and Magdalen. The energetic from New York will move quickly throughout the planet, and it will last for twenty-four hours, which means you do not have to meditate with the gathering in New York when we engage the global mediation. You can do it anytime within this twenty-four-hour period and still fully participate in its intended outcome, which is to introduce a gentle, purifying and healing energetic into the human collective.

If you choose to join the World Sound Meditation during this twenty-four-hour window, I suggest you listen to it twice for yourself according to the instructions given by the Hathors under the section sub-titled How to Work with this Meditation. Then listen to it two times for the collective—as directed by the Hathors above, in the section titled Using this Meditation to Benefit the Collective. After you have gone through the meditation four times—two for yourself and two for the world—rest for a few minutes (or longer if you have the time) to let the subtle energetics settle into your body/mind. Please do not listen to the meditation from our website but download it onto your computer.

At the level of consciousness where the World Sound Meditation unfolds, there is no separation between us in time or space, so you can fully participate wherever you live or whatever your individual circumstances may be. As you engage the sound mediation, you will enter a sphere of being that transcends the limitations of our embodied existence. For those of you who will be joining us in this World Sound Meditation from afar, I extend to you my deepest appreciation and acknowledgement.

Finally, I think I should mention an important aspect of this rare occurrence.  As some of you who have worked with me know, I often get a sense of the energetic before an event takes place. Based upon my psychic perceptions of this gathering in New York on October 2, I feel that when the Hathors and Magdalen conjoin their energies, both during the event and the World Sound Meditation, they will release a potent energy-field that will be a profound and life-changing experience for those who are physically in the room.

In other words, if you have the space and resources to get to this event in New York, I would seriously consider it.

The Effects of Sound On Your Innate Genius

Edited from an article that appeared in Scientific Background, December 11th, 2006

By Tom Kenyon

 

The use of sound and music to generate “healing” has a long history stretching back to the virtual beginnings of man.

Indigenous shamans and healers using instruments such as the human voice, drums, flutes and percussive instruments have been documented to alter brain states (i.e. the neural activity within the brain itself). These studies have shown, for instance, that certain drumming patterns can increase theta activity in the cerebral cortex, a brain state known to be connected with hypnagogic states of awareness, dream-like states of mind as well as states of unusual mental creativity.

Research studies conducted on the neurological effects of sound have shown that the human brain responds to pure tone in highly specific ways. PET Scans, which measure glucose consumption at the cellular level, show that pure sound or music (without words) stimulate an increase of cellular activity in the right hemisphere.

Although both cerebral hemispheres of the brain process many different kinds of information, a simple division in tasking can be made.

While there are unique differences between the brains of individual humans, generally speaking, the left hemisphere processes language and logic.

The right hemisphere, on the other hand, does not “comprehend” language as such. However, the right hemisphere processes spatial information, paradox, novelty and non-verbal information in ways that the left hemisphere is incapable of.

While our ability to understand and create language are vital components of our human experience, there are other valuable aspects of our intelligence that are not generally recognized by our culture as having intrinsic value.

The irony, here, is that history is full of instances where scientific breakthroughs occurred when scientists engaged right hemispheric abilities to “see” situations and opportunities in novel ways.

One of my favorite stories in this regard concerns the German chemist Kekule who was struggling with the structure of the benzene ring.

One night, exasperated from not having been able to determine the structure of this particular molecule, he had a truly strange dream in which he saw a snake swallowing its own tail.

There are several things I find interesting here. One is that his dream of a snake swallowing its tail was actually an ancient alchemical symbol called the Uroborus (or Ouroborus), sometimes associated with self-reflexivity as in the sense of something re-creating itself.

Kekule awoke from his dream and “knew” that this was the structure of benzene. What made Kekule a genius rather than someone who simply had an unusual dream was his ability to “translate” the spatial images from his intuitive right hemisphere into the language of his left hemisphere, i.e. logic and mathematics.

As an interesting side note, at least one historian has noted that Kekule was not the first person to have discovered the benzene ring. However, who discovered what and when does not really have much bearing on Kekule’s dream itself. Kekule maintained that the dream-born image was unquestionably instrumental in his creative problem solving process.

When the right cerebral hemisphere is stimulated, as in the use of pure sound or tone, there is often an increase in non-ordinary states of awareness. This occurs because the right hemisphere engages the spatial and intuitive aspects of our intelligence. In these neurological states, our perception of reality (both internal and external) can be very different from our everyday experience. Our senses may become heightened or sensitive, more vivid or refined. It is not uncommon to have a more immediate experience of our inner mental and emotional life through the direct perception of our psychic drivers (i.e., our deeply seated emotions, fantasies and archetypal conflicts or dramas) during these types of altered states. In such instances, our unconscious mental/emotional material may present itself as internal imagery (dream-like images) or even internal dialogues.

While our Western culture is generally unconcerned with these deep emotional and mental states, numerous anecdotal reports from the lives of great scientists and artists indicate that these states of mind are gateways to our innate genius.

Neuropsychology has clearly demonstrated that we use only a small portion of our brain/mind’s potential. One reason for this has to do with the simple fact that our brains only build new neurological networks when they are challenged in new ways.

In 1983, I began my work in psychoacoustics with Acoustic Brain Research (ABR) to study the effects of sound and music on the brain as a means to enhance human potential in the areas of creativity and high genius.

Based upon this research and my own experiences with sound-based technology, I am convinced that altered states of consciousness are a powerful key for unlocking much of our unused potential. And as a technology to assist us, sound and music are unparalleled.

Hearing is believing, and I invite you to experience the power of sound and music to affect altered states of consciousness for yourself.

Taoist Stillness Practices:
Slowing the Whirly-gig of Mind

by Tom Kenyon

When I was a kid, I owned a bright steel-blue Schwinn bicycle with balloon tires. On my block it was considered really cool to attach playing cards to the spokes of one’s tires so that they would make noise. And so ever wanting to be accepted by my pre-adolescent peers, I adorned my shiny wonder with an entire pack, yes… an entire pack! I borrowed an assortment of clothes pins from my mother and attached the cards in every conceivable space. As a result, when I rode around the neighborhood, it sounded like a mad cacophony of firecrackers gone amuck.

To top off the whole thing, I attached two whirly-gigs to the handlebars. I taped them on with duct tape, one to the right and one to the left. Even back then I searched for the solace of symmetry.

Whirly-gigs for those not familiar with the term are actually pin wheels, usually made of plastic and often placed atop a wooden dowel. They spin easily. The stronger the breeze, the faster they twirl. I became fascinated by the twirling of my whirly-gigs. I would peddle as fast as I could and then watch the tiny propellers dissolve into one mass of spinning color. One day I got too caught up in watching my whirly-gigs and failed to notice that I had run off the sidewalk and into a deserted lot. The next thing I knew, I was flat on the ground, the victim of a head-on collision with a tree. My whirly-gigs were askew and the front of my bike bent. I had learned a sobering lesson–pay attention to what you are doing.

As time passed on, I gave up my bike and my whirly-gigs, but I have never lost my fondness for them or, for that matter, for bikes with balloon tires.

Now, much older, I don’t watch whirly-gigs on the handlebars of bicycles. Instead, I watch them spin inside my mind. Although it might strike you as an odd metaphor, I think our thoughts and emotions are a lot like whirly-gigs. They spin easily. It doesn’t take much for a thought or a feeling to start spinning inside our heads. Sometimes the whirly-gigs of mind spin in a nice gentle way. At times they spin so fast, they seem out of control.

It’s an odd thing, the whirly-gigs of the mind. When they start to spin, we tend to identify with the arising thoughts and feelings as our own. If the whirly-gig of the mind happens to spin in a pleasant manner, and pleasant thoughts arise, we embrace it. We say we are happy or content. If, however, the whirly-gig of our mind spins in an unpleasant direction, and we are besieged by unpleasant thoughts and feelings, we are repulsed. We say we are upset.

Most of us experience the oscillation between the two extremes of grasping (for what we want) and avoiding (what we don’t want) on a daily basis. The whirly-gig of mind is always spinning because that is its nature. In other words, it is always moving. Thoughts and feelings are always arising from this movement of the mind. And thousands of years ago, ancient sages throughout the world discovered that the source of the mind’s movement was the flow of subtle energies within our bodies. Tibetans call this lung (or the winds). Yogis call it prana, and Taoists call it chi.

Each of these alchemical systems has, in their own way, mapped out the subtle pathways responsible for the experience of thought and emotion. They describe these movements of subtle energy quite clearly and have developed means to alter their flow. The result is an inner technology that directly affects the mind and its creations (thoughts and feelings).

A quick glance at the diverse alchemical traditions of the world will reveal a striking similarity in their attitude towards the mind and its creations. Virtually every system teaches a means to still the mind. The reason for this obsession with inner stillness is that it is only in stillness that the Mind (or consciousness) can become aware of itself. Until then, we are mesmerized by the whirly-gigs of our mental experience. We identify ourselves with our thoughts and feelings instead of realizing that they come and go like clouds. And like clouds, they are ephemeral, possessing little substance.

By transcending identification with our minds (our whirly-gigs) we begin to glimpse our true identity, as pure consciousness. And as the purity of our innate consciousness rises into awareness, we begin to awaken from the dream of this world. We begin to see that we are, and have always been, eternally free. It is simply a matter of waking up from the fixated spinning of our own minds.

So the practical question becomes: how do we wake up to our own greater identity?

One path of self-realization was created by the Taoists of ancient China. And like alchemists in other cultures, they discovered the inner pathways of consciousness and their relationship to the mind.

In order to comprehend Taoist alchemy we must come to an understanding of a subtle force called chi. From the immense mystery of the Tao, which creates all worlds, but is untouched by them, there is an eternal flow of this vital force (chi).

There are many types of chi. There is, for instance, a vital force flowing out of quasars and stars, though this is quite different in quality from the chi created by a stream. When most people think about chi, they usually think about the subtle life force in air. This type of chi is most concentrated in natural areas, away from cities. This kind of vital force is strongest in large areas of tree growth, by lakes, rivers and streams, as well as by larger bodies of water like oceans. Some have speculated that this type of chi is related to negative ions, and there is evidence that this is so. But there are other types of chi as well–more subtle, more refined types of chi and these are one of the focuses of advanced Taoist alchemy.

Traditionally, Taoist sages spent much of their time as hermits in nature. In later periods, groups of men or women would form communities to pursue their alchemical search with others. But almost always, these Taoist abodes were far from cities. They were usually located in places where the chi was especially strong, often in areas designated as Dragon Points.

Dragon Points are places of convergence where one form of chi meets another. They are most dramatically seen in mountain ranges. When two ridges meet, there is often a trench or a gorge that flows down the sides of the mountains. As celestial chi (the type of chi generated in the sky) flows downward, it meets the terrestrial chi of the mountain at the point between the ridges. This is called a Dragon Point.

Where two streams or rivers converge, there is a detectable increase of chi, and this too, is called a Dragon Point. Taoist sages would search for these places and put their abodes either in the Dragon Point itself, or nearby. This made their alchemical work easier since there was a ready abundance of chi that they could draw upon in their practices.

Thought, Time and Breath

As with other forms of internal alchemy, the Taoist practitioner must train the mind to enter prolonged states of stillness. This quiescence of mind is crucial since the Tao can only be experienced in mental silence, and many of the alchemical transformations of Taoist alchemy also require a silent mind as well.

There are many classes of stillness practices. Some of them involve movement such as Tai Chi, and others involve sitting meditation, such as the Celestial Gate, which I will discuss in a moment.

In these stillness practices, the mind is eventually led to a state of deep quietude. In actual practice, especially at the beginning, there may be a flurry of mental activity. Thoughts come and go, sometimes in a torrent, sometimes in a trickle. Eventually the practitioner notices that the speed of his or her thought seems to be slowing down. There seems to be more space between thoughts, and at some point they stop altogether, if only briefly.

The practitioner also notices that the breath changes during these states. There is a tendency for the breath to slow down as thought slows down. And when there is no thought, there is often no breath, or it is very shallow. This is significant for several reasons.

From a neurological standpoint we could say that this is because the brain waves of the practitioner are in the lower states of alpha and/or theta where the breath naturally gets slower. Research on meditation has noted, by the way, that these states also produce a decrease in muscle tension, heart rate, blood pressure and respiration, all of which are quite positive in their stress reducing effects. In fact, studies have shown that those who practice forms of meditation that produce these effects, as in the Taoist stillness practices, are generally less stressed than their counterparts who do not meditate

Several years ago, about an hour before twilight, I chose to do the stillness practice known as the Celestial Gate (also referred to as Heaven’s Gate) in a park. As twilight descended around me, I was still doing the practice and noticed that my breathing had stopped. Not only this, but thought seemed to be arrested. My mind was clear and as calm as the surface of a tranquil lake. But most impressive to me, in the moment, was that time also seemed to have stopped, and I was suspended in a timeless dimension of mind.

I decided to walk back to my car as it was getting dark, and the trip took me twenty minutes or so. I noted that the impulse to go back to the car came as a sensation as if it had come from deep within my body. It did not come as a thought. I did not think, “now I need to get back to the car.” This non-speaking state of mind seemed oddly amusing to me at the time. During my saunter I noticed that my breath was very shallow, even though the trail back to the car was over hilly terrain. That timeless feeling was still very strong, and I seemed to move over the hills with little effort.

Ironically, when I saw my car in the parking lot I remembered an appointment later that evening, and I spontaneously took a deep breath. My breath had returned to normal, and that feeling of timelessness vanished. I was firmly rooted back in time.

There is a fascinating relationship between the perception of timelessness and the cessation of breath. In Taoist meditation practice this suspension of the breath is often encountered when entering the deeper states of mental quiescence.

As a psychotherapist working in the area of psychoneuroimmunology, or how our thoughts and feelings affect immunity, I find the time paradox even more fascinating.

A study conducted with patients admitted to an emergency room due to cardiac arrest reveal some fascinating information about the interplay between body and mind. During recovery, these patients were asked some questions about their perception of time. Based on their responses, researchers could predict who would recover and who would die from another heart attack. Those patients who said that they were letting things go to take care of themselves and who reported feeling that there would be more than enough time to do what needed to be done, were more likely to recover and avoid a second heart attack. Those patients, however, who stated that they were under tremendous pressure to do what had been left undone and who felt that they were running out of time, invariably suffered a higher incidence of death due to a second cardiac arrest.

None of this would come as a surprise to a Taoist sage. From the standpoint of Taoism, our modern time-crunch world is disturbing to both health and spiritual attainment. We need to bring our time-crunched mind back to tranquility on a regular basis or suffer the ill effects of our modern age.

I have taught a simple form of the Taoist stillness practice to hundreds if not thousands of people by now. Everyone has expressed a deep appreciation for a method of meditation that is so quick and easy to enter into. Those who have never been able to meditate due to continual thought (inner dialogue) are especially appreciative of this method since thought is not a hindrance to the practice.

The Celestial Gate Meditation

The Celestial Gate Meditation practice is based on Dragon Points. Dragon Points, as I mentioned earlier, are places of convergence, where one form of chi meets another.

There are several Dragon Points within the human body. The Celestial Gate is just one of these, and happens to be a place where heavenly chi (a very subtle form of chi) flows into the body and meets the terrestrial (or earth) chi of the body itself. Thus this place is an energetically charged area, and Taoist sages discovered a long time ago how to take advantage of it.

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. You can lie down if you wish, but this makes some people go to sleep. For a moment, just notice your breath. Don’t change it in any way; just watch it. Notice the rhythm and the depth of your breath. Then after a moment, become aware of the space about an inch behind the bridge of the nose. Imagine that there is an opening about one inch square in this area. This is the Celestial Gate. All you do is focus on it.

Do not concentrate on it. Just be aware of it. If you are having thoughts or fantasies, this is not a problem. Let them continue on their merry way. Just let some part of your attention be on the opening. You can think all you want about anything you want and the practice will still work so long as some part of your attention is on the Celestial Gate (the opening).

As you continue to focus at the gate, you will notice that thoughts eventually seem to slow down. After a while, there will be more space between the thoughts or fantasies. And eventually they will stop altogether, if only temporarily. It is during these moments that you might find that your breath has stopped or has become very shallow. This is natural, and is, in fact, a sign that you are entering the deeper states of stillness. It is in these deepest states of quiescence where there is no breath and no thought that contact with the Tao takes place.

Doing it for about five minutes will usually give you a clear sense of how this practice alters awareness. Beginners usually take several minutes to settle down into the light stages of mental stillness. But over time these periods get longer and one feels more confident about how to enter these deeply relaxing states of mind.

Research has shown that stillness practices, such as this, are very effective at counteracting some of the negative effects of stress. Just twenty minutes once or twice a day can make a tremendous difference in your sense of wellbeing.

Don’t let the simplicity of this meditation fool you. It is a profound stillness practice that will eventually lead you to a direct experience of the Tao itself. Gently extend the periods of stillness, so that you become acquainted with and comfortable with these deep places of quiet.

In Taoism, the deepest secrets are revealed only by the Tao itself. You cannot find the deeper alchemical truths in books for it is forbidden to write about them. Thus, meditations like the Celestial Gate are cosmic keys. They can, if practiced faithfully over time, open the inner doors of perception.

But you must turn the key to open the lock. Just thinking about it won’t create transformation. If you wish to experience the mysteries of the Tao for yourself, don’t just read about them. Turn the key and walk through the door.

Siddhis and the Powers of Consciousness

by Tom Kenyon

My first encounter with yogic powers was in my early twenties. I had gone to Atlanta with some friends for a rock festival and we had slipped into some shops on Peach Street. This was the late sixties and although the flower era had ended in San Francisco, it had just caught up with Atlanta. Day-glow colored buildings, tie-dyed shirts and psychedelic rock abounded.

One of my compatriots wanted to check out a really weird shop with clouds of incense that would shame any Catholic church. At the time, the music sounded really, really strange to this southern boy from Virginia. The music? Sitars. The shelves were filled with books about yoga and other exotic things. Then, as we were leaving, my eyes caught a book entitled Autobiography of a Yogi by Parmahansa Yogannanda. A photo of him adorned the cover; our eyes met and the world instantly changed. I stood transfixed and was unable to move. It was like I was suddenly transported into a dream, those strange dreams where you can’t move.

My friend called out to me as he started to leave. I turned around in really, really slow motion. And it seemed that the book was pulling at me, drawing me over to its shelf. With extraordinary will power, I forced myself away from the book and pulled myself out of the shop. Only when I had gotten out the door and onto the street did the strange powers of the book stop affecting me.

I did not know it at the time, for I had no context for such an experience, but I had experienced yogic power first hand. When I finally read the book, a few years later, I understood the strange affect it had on me.

Reading Yogannanda’s words activated memories from my many past lives in India, and they reconnected me with one of my primary spiritual lineages. His yogic powers (siddhis) were considerable and everything he touched or wrote carried some of his energy. This is a typical trait, I later discovered, of all accomplished yogis and yoginis (women yogis), as well as certain saints and mystics.

The siddhis or yogic powers are not limited to yogis or yoginis, however. There are many well-documented cases of Buddhist, Christian, Islamic, Jewish and Taoists saints and mystics who have attained the siddhis as well. In addition, it is well known among indigenous cultures that shamans often exhibit such powers as well.

Several years ago, I had an experience with the siddhis of a mystic in one of the most unlikely places on earth–Kodiak, Alaska.

I had been invited to teach a series of workshops in Anchorage and the following weekend I taught a workshop on Kodiak Island. After the final workshop on the island, I had a few days off. My organizer gave me a few options, and I chose the boat ride to a small island inhabited by Russian Orthodox monks where an Orthodox saint had lived. I was told that visitors more often than not, had to turn back due to rough seas. In fact, I was told the prelates of the Church in charge of the monastery had never been able to see it, as every time they went for a visit, high seas forced them back.

This was a source of immense humor among the native peoples.

We took a small airplane ride to a nearby island and landed on a spit of land that ended abruptly into turbulent and frigid waters. We were greeted by a local fisherman’s wife driving a pickup truck, and I hopped in the back of the Ford. My organizer got in the front.

It was summer, but there was a light snowfall as we headed for her house by the sea. I remember feeling quite cold and wondering how in the hell people survived here in the winter. We pulled up to a small house surrounded by cedar trees and went inside. Sitting by a large wooden table we sipped tea. Now anyone who has been to northern Alaska knows that time is a strange bird in these parts. We just sat and sat, talking a little here and there, waiting it seemed for some opportune time to leave. Finally, our host announced that it was time to go, and we piled back into the Ford pickup, and headed for the dock where her husband was waiting with a fishing trawler.

We took off across an amazingly placid sea. Our host sat next to a boom, knitting, and commented how unusual it was to have such a calm passing. I sat looking out at the rich unbelievably beautiful landscape of the neighboring islands as our boat chugged along at a fairly crisp pace. Seals followed us part way.

Passing an outcropping of boulders, we came into a small natural harbor. The water was too shallow for the trawler, so we got into a dinghy and headed to shore. The scene was like something out of the Middle Ages. A group of men were on the beach burning brush, the air thick with billows of white smoke which swirled in eddies against a stark blue sky. The monks wore long beards, typical of Russian and Greek Orthodox clerics, and they were wearing long grey robes with thin ropes tied about the waist. Each one of them also wore a crucifix.

Stepping out of the boat onto the sand, we were greeted by someone who appeared to be in his early thirties and had the air of authority about him. Our host explained that I had come from Washington State to visit. The Abbott smiled approvingly and proceeded to take us on a tour of the small monastery, which consisted of perhaps a dozen men or so. As we headed up a path into the shade of cedars, he noted that the monastery did not often get to host pilgrims.

He took us to several spots including the small hut where the saint lived. I recall the air being musty from the old manuscripts and pictures of icons that had been in the saint’s possession. But there was also an unmistakable sense of serenity. The Abbott also took us to a sacred spring reputed to have healing powers. Finally he took us to the small chapel where the saint had been previously buried. His body had since been removed, but the site was still considered holy.

The Abbott caught me staring at a corner of the chapel. He asked me what I was seeing, and I said I was seeing a column of white light coming out of the floor and going up through the roof. The Abbott seemed to smile a bit and said that the saint had been buried in that corner of the church. Then he said something in a somewhat dreamy voice as if he were part way into another world, I remember his words because they sounded so odd to me at the time, “would that we were all so sensitive.”

Seeming to rouse himself from his reveries, the Abbott said, “There is one more thing I would like to show you.”

He guided us back down the hill to a very small chapel that had obviously just recently been built. It was quite unusual in that it was perhaps nine feet square and some twenty feet tall. The inside of the building glowed from the gold pigments of recently painted icons. They depicted the life of Saints along with other prominent figures of the Russian Orthodox Church. In the back of the chapel there was a very small altar with a Bible in Russian.

The Abbott pointed out the various icons and their meanings and then said that the tour had come to an end. He motioned us out of the chapel and closed the door behind us. I remember suddenly having a question about mysticism I thought the Abbott might be able to clarify. I knocked at the door, but there was no answer. I knocked again, still no sign of anyone inside.

Gingerly I opened the door to find the chapel completely empty. For a moment I stood in shock. Then my ever-skeptical mind came in, and I began to search for trap doors or other entrances. I even picked up the small frayed rug on the floor to see if there was a secret exit. Nothing.

Still in a kind of shock, I wandered out the door and on to the beach where our party was waiting. There, clearly in view was the Abbott. He was talking to my host, and as I stepped up he nodded his head with a distinct twinkle in his eyes. We boarded the dinghy and headed back to trawler. The sun was low in sky, and I stood on the deck looking over the stern as we headed back into the sea. I was very quiet.

As I write these words I am caught up in the feelings of awe and wonder I felt then. I had known the siddhis existed, had studied the physics of them, and had made it a hobby of mine to collect stories and documentations. But here on a small island off Kodiak, a humble contemplative had shown me the mystery of yogic powers firsthand.

Halfway through the ride back, the fisherman’s wife turned from her knitting and said, “You know, they do things like that all the time!”

“Things like what, I asked?”

“Oh, you know, teleporting, bilocating… things like that.”

“Really,” I said.

“Yes,” she replied, not taking her eyes off her knitting. “That island is a remote place. There is no mail service. We see them sometimes in town picking up their mail and buying things. And…” she said in a most conspiratorial tone, “they don’t have any way of getting there!”

The powers of consciousness, or siddhis, range from what are called the lesser siddhis to what are termed the greater siddhis. The lesser siddhis include such psychic abilities as clairvoyance (inner seeing), clairaudience (inner hearing), clairsentience (inner feeling), as well as clairgnosis (inner knowing), as in knowing something, but not knowing how you know it. The first three, clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience, are refinements of the physical senses.

As psychic powers unfold, they often tend to present themselves in one of these three forms, or in combination. Thus one might begin to see things in the mind’s eye that can’t be physically seen. These visual impressions manifest as a subtle sense of seeing something that cannot be seen physically (i.e., auras, guides, etc.). In scientific studies involving remote viewing, this siddhi is most often used.

Studies show that persons can, under the right conditions (i.e. mental relaxation), accurately report visual impressions of objects or locations hundreds of miles away with no previous knowledge of them. The reception of such visual information must presumably come from some other source than that of physical sight since the viewers were nowhere near the locations they described.

Many yogis/yoginis, saints and mystics have reported that they could often see their disciples in distant locations when it was called for. In one account, the yogi Neem Karoli Baba suddenly asked for large amounts of food to be brought to him. Those present report that he consumed a mind-boggling amount of food before going into samadhi (yogic meditation). When the yogi came out of meditation, his disciples asked him what had happened. He reported that he had suddenly seen one of his disciples dying in the desert. The last desire of the dying man was to eat. Baba said that the student had reached a level of attainment where there was no further need to reincarnate. But with the desire for food on his mind, he would have been brought back into the wheel of birth and death merely through the power of this one unfulfilled desire! Baba had taken upon himself the task of fulfilling the man’s last wish for food, and using his yogic powers, he transmuted the desire.

When psychic information is received auditorially, the person is called clairaudient. Such persons have subtle impressions of hearing sounds and/or voices. The inner realms of consciousness are filled with sounds and music that are incredibly beautiful. It has been suggested by some that many of the great composers actually heard the music of these realms and that this music of the spheres greatly influenced their compositions.

Some individuals feel things at a very subtle level and these persons are called clairsentients. There is often a fine line between a clairsentient and an empath. Empaths have highly developed sensitivities and often feel other people’s feelings, especially those around them. Clairsentients may also be empathic, but in addition, they receive psychic impressions in the form of subtle feelings, which are often physical

Clairgnosis is one of the more fascinating siddhis. When you have a hunch about something, but have no idea how you might know such a thing, this is clairgnosis. (That is, if your hunch turns out to be true. If it turns out to be false, we call that delusion.) Some have suggested that clairgnosis is an attribute of pure consciousness which is omniscient and omnipresent. As one rises higher up the ladder of consciousness, one’s own personal awareness takes on some of these qualities and episodes of clairgnosis increase.

The lesser siddhis also include such things as healing abilities and limited powers of prophecy. This class of yogic powers also includes the ability for awareness to become very small or very large, in other words, not confined by the limitations of the body.

The greater siddhis include such things as levitation (in which the body floats or hovers in air). Again this siddhi is not confined to Indian yogis or yoginis as some believe. There are well-documented sightings of St. Francis of Assisi, for one, hovering in the air. St. Francis exhibited other siddhis as well. In fact, his physical remains have spiritual powers even after his death. While visiting his shrine in Assisi, I was transported into the spiritual realms through the emanations from his crypt! I heard a sound like wind blowing through Aspen trees whenever I stood near his body, and when I returned to my hotel room my skin was red, as if I had a mild sunburn.

By the way, if you are ever at Assisi, here’s a little tip. As you enter the main entrance into the Basilica where St. Francis’s remains are kept, turn to your left. Off to both sides there will be stairs that lead down to the crypt, and it is certainly worth visiting. The problem is that there are usually throngs of people milling about, and it is difficult to find a quiet space. If you proceed further, though, on the main floor, past the stairs, you will see a large altar in the distance. It is the only altar in this part of the church. On the floor, in front of the altar, there is a geometric figure. It sits directly above St. Francis’s tomb, and the emanations from this area are very strong. No one seems to know about it, so you can stand directly on the spot and receive the emanations in relative peace.

The greater siddhis also include such remarkable abilities such as teleportation (like the Abbott I mentioned earlier) and bi-location (being in two places at once). There are other abilities that fall under this category, but they are too numerous to list here.

Siddhis or yogic powers are attained as a natural consequence of spiritual development. There is, however, a very real dilemma with the siddhis. If not tempered with wisdom, the premature attainment of yogic powers can lead to karmic entanglements.

A short anecdote about a well-known yogi may help to make this clear.

He is quite an extraordinary being, and many years ago, I had the wonderful experience of studying with him during a weeklong retreat. According to a close disciple of his, whom I came to know, the yogi had gone to India for a spiritual retreat in his early twenties, having attained some of the siddhis. He was resting against a tree listening to the beautiful music of a master musician who was caught up in the fervor of bhakti (Divine Love), and due to the intensity of devotion within the music, our yogi was transported into a deep state of samadhi and experienced great ecstasies and bliss.

The concert abruptly ended when it started to rain and the musician rushed indoors. Using his siddhic powers, the yogi caused the rain to stop, and the musician returned to his kirtans (sacred singing). Very quickly our yogi was transported back into samadhi, but his bliss was rudely ended by an old man kicking him in the side. The man was also a yogi, and in a furor he continued to kick the younger yogi, yelling obscenities at him.

“What are you doing?” he asked. “Don’t you realize this area has been suffering from a drought? And you, you stopped the rains for your own selfish desires.” The ancient yogi raised his staff in the air and pointed it at his younger peer. “Mark my words, if you don’t stop this, you will pay a great karmic debt. You will spend a thousand lifetimes as a sea creature!” The old yogi then kicked some dust in the direction of the young man and left before he could respond.

Immediately the younger yogi went into meditation and through his siddhic powers returned the rains. He fervently prayed to God to take away his siddhis, and miraculously they left him. But over the years they slowly returned to a much wiser and less flamboyant man.

Generally speaking, the siddhis are looked upon, by most people, as being more magical and exotic than practical. Part of this is due, no doubt, to a pervasive misunderstanding about their place among other human abilities, such as the ability to reason and to make language, both of which we take for granted.

The siddhis are inherent human abilities, but they only show up when consciousness has reached a certain level of development. When this level has been attained, the siddhis or yogic powers, spontaneously appear. They are like fruits on a tree.

Although one may have an apple tree in one’s yard, only when it has reached a certain level of maturity and development is it capable of manifesting the fruits of its nature. This is also true of the powers of consciousness. We all possess them, in potential, but not all of us will demonstrate them in actuality.

As one looks at the various internal alchemies of the world, they all have their own version of the siddhis and views on how to attain them. Traditionally, this knowledge has been kept secret, and only those admitted to these esoteric schools or spiritual lineages have been given access to the technology of self-evolution.

Personally, I believe that knowledge of the siddhis is a human birthright, and this technology for the acceleration of self-evolution should be made as widely available as possible.

As I said earlier, the siddhis are a natural expression of human evolution. They unfold as a consequence of spiritual growth and they are, I believe, one of our next evolutionary benchmarks. The greater siddhis (such as levitation, bi-location and teleportation) rarely manifest except in the advanced stages of spiritual development. The lesser siddhis, however, can develop quite quickly. The development of these lesser siddhis, has a generally enhancing effect on creativity and intelligence. And, for this reason alone, they are well worth exploring.

Recently, there have been reports from around the world about some children possessing extraordinary powers. These children are not undergoing years of rigorous yogic training. They are, in fact, spontaneously demonstrating the siddhis. This points to the fact, I believe, that the siddhis are a natural part of human evolution, albeit unusual.

If the Bell Curve formula of evolution applies here as it does to most other evolutionary situations, these children are at the forefront of the human race in terms of mental abilities. As time moves forward, their numbers will presumably grow until the majority of mankind possesses these inherent powers of consciousness.

As I wrote that last sentence, I remembered the Mayan calendar and its prediction regarding the powers of consciousness. According to some translations of the Mayan prophesies, at the year 2012A.D. we will depart from the Age of the Intellect and time, as we know it. If they are correct, we will pass through a collective planetary portal on that date and enter the Age of the Gods.

Indeed, if the majority of humanity reaches the level of attaining siddhic powers, we would be very much in the Age of the Gods. Only time will tell if the Mayan prophecies are correct in this regard. In point of fact, it would not take a majority of humanity to express the siddhis in order to usher in a new Age of the Gods. It would only take a small percentage of individuals to tip the scales, so to speak.

Those of us engaged in spiritual practices to accelerate personal evolution are, I believe, making a tangible contribution to the future destiny of this world. Consciousness has a subtle, yet potent affect upon the environment. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated this.

I am thinking, in particular, about experiments on the effects of prayer conducted by Larry Dossey, M.D. There have also been extensive studies conducted by Maharishi International University on the effects of the siddhis on the environment. Specifically, when a group of individuals enters a high state of coherency, as in yogic meditation, there are distinct positive influences on the environment. These include such things as increased wellness of the individuals, decreased psychological stress and a decrease in crime. This is very interesting stuff. It shows that we don’t live in a vacuum, that our thoughts and experiences have measurable effects on the world around us.

One reason I wrote this article is to bring the concept of the siddhis to a larger audience outside the traditional yogic circles. My motivation for this? I believe that more and more of us are experiencing spontaneous arisings of the siddhis, especially the lesser siddhis. I am already seeing this happen, and suspect there will be an even greater increase as we pass through the next ten years. Knowing that they are a natural part of spiritual evolution may, perhaps, make it easier for you to accept them when they arise.

In closing, I would like to address a couple of ideas in regards to the siddhis. The first is what I call the myth of happiness. The delusion here is that by developing yogic powers we will be happy. In point of fact, these powers have very little to do with happiness. They are simply expressions of consciousness and its inherent abilities, like, for instance, the ability to speak.

Talking does not, necessarily produce happiness. It can just as easily produce conflict. It’s what we say to ourselves and to each other that determines whether it is a contribution or a distraction to our happiness. The same is true for the siddhis or yogic powers. It’s what we do with them that counts. If you think that your problems will magically disappear as a result of cultivating the powers of consciousness you will be sorely disappointed. But if your consciousness gets stronger, you certainly have the possibility of making better and more creative choices for yourself. This is, I believe, one of the major benefits for cultivating the powers of consciousness.

The second point concerns spiritual enlightenment. Attaining yogic powers does not necessarily mean that one is enlightened, or even spiritually mature. It simply means that these powers are manifesting due to either cultivation or spontaneous unfoldment.

Don’t, in other words, be mesmerized by those who demonstrate such powers, and don’t delude yourself when they start showing up in you.

Spiritual attainment often causes the siddhis to spontaneously manifest. A quick look at the lives of saints throughout the world will demonstrate this quite clearly. Virtually every saint in history has demonstrated some of these non-ordinary powers. But the presence of these powers does not necessarily mean that the person possessing them is illuminated.

I believe that those of us working with spiritual technologies need to understand the potential of what we are dealing with. And I believe that we would be well advised to enter this mysterious realm of human potential with the three jewels of wisdom, compassion and humor. Yes… humor. Seriousness is, after all, the death-knell to liberating spirituality.

On that note, I will leave you with this final thought…

What did the Buddhist monk say to the hot dog vendor?

The Unbearable Light of Awareness

Tom Kenyon

The irony of the moment did not escape me.

Only an hour or two before, I had been reading the Diamond Sutra, a treatise attributed to Buddha, in which he discusses, among many things, the practice of the six Paramitas.

The Paramitas, sometimes known as the Six Perfections, are attitudes or behaviors that greatly increase the likelihood of enlightenment. They are a lighthouse, the diamond light of Mahayana Buddhism—or what is called the Great Vessel.

This enigmatic term refers to the undertaking of enlightenment not just for oneself (which is called Hinayana, or the Lesser Vessel), but for all sentient beings as well.

The Greater Vessel, or Mahayana, is the realization that we are all in the same boat, so to speak. We all live in the realm of samsara or illusion. And it is the nature of samsara that all things and all beings are impermanent, transient and empty. This was one of the great insights attributed to Lord Buddha, though there is evidence that other earlier traditions may have stumbled onto the same realization—notably the BonPo of ancient Tibet.

In any event, quantum physics agrees with the Buddha’s realization, which he attained around two thousand years before the advent of modern quantum physics.

The Buddha as Sage and Scientist

If I may be so bold as to summarize some aspects of the cosmology of quantum mechanics, it is this. All things that exist in the universe are impermanent. From the tiniest subatomic particles, to the largest quasars and galaxies, to you and me, our days are numbered, so to speak—though of course, when it comes to the lifespan of galaxies and other heavenly bodies, their time of existence is measured in millions of years—not decades or centuries.

Indeed, from the cosmic perspective, all of us, including our civilizations are birthed, live and die, in but the blink of a cosmic eye.

One of the sufferings of being in samsara (a Buddhist term meaning the illusion of the physical world), or relative existence, to use a very quantum term, is that we, and all we know, will one day no longer exist. At the physical level of existence we are, each of us, nothing more than oscillating patterns of subatomic particles dancing the temporary dance of existence.

This is one of the cardinal principles, if you will, of quantum mechanics—though some quantum theorists may argue that the nature of light is actually the first cardinal principle of quantum physics. And I would certainly agree with them that it was through the study of light that quantum mechanics came into existence in the first place. That’s why I said that impermanence is one of the cardinal principles of quantum mechanics—not the first cardinal principle. I belabor this in case some of you reading this are, in fact, physicists.

Another principle of quantum mechanics is that all physical objects are comprised essentially of space. Buddhists would say emptiness. But science and Buddhists are fundamentally saying the same thing.

According to some physicists, our bodies are something like 99.9% space. The actual physical matter that makes up our bodies is only about one-tenth of one percent. In fact, according to these estimates if you took all the physical matter that makes up your body and put it in a pile, it would all fit on the tip of a pin. The rest of you is space.

It gets even stranger. If you were to poof down to the size of an atom and measure the distance between the electrons closest to the nucleus, you would have a very small measurement indeed. But if you brought that same atomic ratio up to human size, the distance between that electron and the nucleus would be about the size of a football field. In other words, atoms—the building blocks of all physical things—are comprised primarily of space.

The Nature of Suffering

In the Diamond Sutra, Buddha talks about these two qualities—impermanence and emptiness—as essential characteristics of all existence. He also discusses the nature of suffering.

Essentially he says that all suffering is the result of desire—specifically the desire for sensory objects. Sensory objects can take many forms—a good meal, a nice glass of wine, pleasant surroundings, a new car, a new lover, or the newest techno gadget. The list is virtually endless, but the fundamental underlying catch is when we see, hear, feel, smell or taste something that we really like, most of us try to get more of it, or hold on to what we have.

But, alas, we live in a quantum atomic world of impermanence. Physical sensory objects to which we attach ourselves to will eventually dissolve back into the quantum soup (emptiness) they came from, and we won’t be able to see, hear, feel, taste, or smell them anymore.

That good meal is never quite the same again. The nice glass of wine eventually turns into vinegar. Those pleasant surroundings will one day disappear, if you hang around long enough. That new car will get a scratch in the parking lot, and eventually dissolve into rust. The new lover will not turn out to be whom you thought he or she to be, and eventually the rosy promise of youth turns into the inevitability of old age and death. And don’t even talk to me about those techno gadgets. As soon as you get the newest hot sensation, just wait a few months. Before you know it, that razzle dazzle must-have device, is an out-of-date piece of techno junk.

Now according to the Buddha, desire, as I said earlier, is the cause of all suffering. But for those of us in the post-modern world, and in the West rather than the East, perhaps a more useful concept is to say that the root of all suffering is not desire per se, but rather the attachment to our desires.

This view is shared by certain traditions of Buddhist practice—notably Dzogchen and Vajrayana, both of which share the reputation as being rapid paths to enlightenment. In some Vajrayana practices the yogi or yogini is actually encouraged to experience certain types of desire with full awareness. It is this union of awareness (or bodhicitta, meaning the mind of one’s Buddha nature) with the impermanent and empty nature of desire that leads one to illumination. It is, however, a tricky and treacherous path. It is not suited for everyone, and it requires a high degree of training, discipline and detachment.

I mention this other view as to the cause of suffering because for modern individuals, especially in the West, our desires are the engines that drive much of our culture—not to mention our economy. To abandon all desire is a big jump for many, if not most of us. Understanding that our attachment to desire is the root of our suffering allows those of us unable to abandon all desire a way to begin letting go of the bonds that bind us. In other words, enjoy the world, but don’t get attached to it.

Dharma Lost by the Sea

All of this leads me back to the Diamond Sutra and the incident I mentioned at the beginning of this article. It occurred of all places, while I was sitting, minding my own business, drinking a cappuccino by the Red Sea.

The Dharma, for those unfamiliar with Buddhism, means the way of the Buddha. Thus when one practices the Dharma, one lives one’s life according to one’s own inherent Buddha nature (or bodhicitta), which traditionally is revealed to oneself through the practice of meditation. If one does not have a direct connection to one’s own Buddha mind, then one follows some of the external precepts or codes of conduct—like the Paramitas, for one example.

This is similar to a Christian who follows the precepts of Christ. He or she could be said to be living the way of Christ, just like a Buddhist might be said to be living the way of Buddha, (the Dharma).

It is possible to live the Dharma and temporarily forget it, lapse if you will, back into old ways of being that lead not to enlightenment but rather to further delusion and sensory attachment. This is what happened to me at the edge of the Sinai Desert.

Judi and I had just finished taking about fifty people on a tour of Egypt. The journey was over and we had come, at the suggestion of our guide, to the Red Sea for some R&R.

The problem was that the trip from Cairo took eleven torturous hours over bad roads. My seat in the van was broken, leaning me back and slamming my right shoulder into the window over and over again. When we reached Dahab, I was in excruciating pain.

The hotel doctor was on vacation and a new doctor, who had recently graduated from medical school, with a degree in pediatrics, treated me. To make a very long story short, he misdiagnosed my injuries and gave me some mild painkillers, which did nothing to alleviate my suffering. Weeks later, when we finally got to decent medical attention in Spain, MRIs would show that I had in fact, torn tendons in my shoulders and had both a damaged bursa and deltoid muscle. When the emergency room physician in Spain looked at the meds I had been handed in Egypt, she rolled her eyes and immediately ordered intense pain blockers.

Back in Egypt, competent medical treatment was in my future. In the moment, I was in a state of near constant pain. I would have to hold my useless arms against my sides, and bend my elbows using both hands to eat or drink.

I have often found that humor is my best ally in difficult situations. And I agree with Mark Twain who once said that “some things in life are so serious, all you can do is laugh.” I nicknamed myself Flipper.

One afternoon, lying in bed, as sitting or walking was too painful, I propped up a copy of the Diamond Sutra and began to re-read the Buddha’s teachings.

The Paramitas are jewels of enlightenment that radiate a spiritual light just by reading them. I was lifted up for a time into the numinous light –filled realms of spirit, and my pain seemed to lessen a bit the whole time I was engaged in reading the text.

I decided that I would try and practice two of the Paramitas to see what might be revealed as I struggled with my physical condition. The two Parmitas I chose were the Paramita of Patience and the Paramita of Compassion.

Later that day, as twilight began to set in, Judi and her daughter, Adrianne, went shopping for gifts to take back home. I decided to join them and have a cappuccino as a distraction from my pain. The fact was that if I stood for more than a few minutes, my arms and shoulders would ache with a searing pain that sometimes left me breathless. Sitting or lying down were the only relatively comfortable positions.

And so I took a seat at an empty table looking over the sea to Saudi Arabia. The moon was clear in the sky and its silvery light reflected off the dark waters.

I had chosen this spot because there was no one else there. I could sit alone and nurse something in my hands, buying some time to sit before having to stand up and head back with Judi and Adrianne to our hotel.

When the coffee arrived, I was in such bad shape tears came to my eyes from the sheer agony of nerve pain, which is like nothing else I had ever experienced. But I discovered that by slowly raising the cup between both hands, I could find a place where the pain was less, and in some positions almost non-existent. But if I moved the cup as much as a half-inch out of this small range of motion, the shooting pain returned. And so I sat there looking over the water to Arabia and finding slight solace in a warm cappuccino.

At this point in my plight, I did not know if I would ever be able to use my arms again. I did not know if I would be able to play the crystal bowl or piano, or even eat properly for that matter. I also found that I could not write. The stress of typing on my laptop sent shock waves of pain up my arms and into my shoulders. I knew something was very wrong, but just how wrong I didn’t know for sure.

And so in the face of such uncertainty, my mind wandered far and wide into scenario after scenario of an impoverished and handicapped life. My mental meanderings reminded me of another comment attributed to Mark Twain, “I have lived a life filled with misery, hardship and ill-fortune, most of it imagined.”

So as I did my best to keep my coffee cup poised in that small range of movement that wouldn’t send blasts of pain up my arms, I also did my best to keep my mind poised and not give in to my growing apprehension.

For a moment in the cacophony of my own samsaric circus (my personal term for samsara), my pain had, more or less, disappeared. I was enjoying the warm sensory object of my coffee and the light of the moon reflecting off the Red Sea. I was savoring the moment. And I had unwittingly become attached to the sensory objects before me and in my hands.

Then my reverie and the fulfillment of my desires were suddenly and rudely interrupted. A rather large woman smoking a cigarette sat down at the same table I had chosen. She plopped down right in front of me, blocking my view of the sea and the moon. She sat her year-old, or so, son on the bench next to her and pulled out another cig.

How dare she come and sit down here at my table? How dare she ruin my moment of quiet calm between my bouts with pain? I wanted her to leave, and I wanted her to leave now.

In short, I had lost my patience and my compassion, all within an hour or two of reading the Diamond Sutra.

Then I noticed his eyes. The young boy was sitting next to his mother looking up at me. It was one of those tender curious looks you often see on the faces of young children. They still carry that mark of the other world they came from and have not, as yet, been marred by life in this one.

His obvious innocence reminded me of a Balinese custom. In a traditional Balinese home, a child is not allowed to touch the earth for the first year of his or her life. The belief is that they are too new to this world, having been birthed from the spirit world. To touch the ground at such an early age would be too large a shock to their tender souls.

The boy in front of me was not Balinese, but he looked through me with an innocence that was disarming.

I felt my heart begin to open, but then I shut it closed. I was pissed. His mother had ruined my moment of pleasure in a sea of pain. I wasn’t about to let him or her off the hook that easily.

I ponder this reaction in myself from time to time—when for whatever reason, I choose to withhold love or compassion.

The woman suddenly, and for no apparent reason, put her second cigarette back into its pack, grabbed her son and wandered off into the crowd of tourists. The moon was beginning its descent from view across the sea. Only a slight sliver of it remained visible from behind a mountain. There were only a few sips of coffee left in my cup. The sensory objects of my desire were coming to an end. I smiled at the strange and bitter irony of the moment.

One of the many things I appreciate about Buddhism is its central belief that we are all living Buddhas. It may take a lifetime or ten thousand lifetimes before we fully realize our own Buddha nature. But this does not detract from the fact that we are intrinsically already Buddhas. It is just not our time to become fully self-aware.

The seed of an oak tree is not yet an oak. But it carries within itself the potential to become one. Perhaps a better metaphor in this case would be to say that a coffee bean is not yet a coffee tree or cup of coffee, but given the right circumstances, and the skilled hands of a good Barista, it can fulfill its potential and become a cup of coffee, a cappuccino, a latte, a macchiato, or whatever. There are, after all, many ways a coffee bean can become a cup of java. And, no doubt, there are many ways a human can reach Buddha-hood as well.

But until the moment of full self-realization, we can do things that are not expressions of our innate Buddha-self, but rather expressions of our own delusion and attachments. Thus, when I withheld love and compassion from the young boy in front of me, I had missed a moment of shared bodhicitta.

Shared bodhicitta is a true treasure for those practicing the Dharma. It is a meeting of mind and heart with another. I have experienced it with lamas and nuns in Tibet and with pilgrims in Lhasa. I have experienced it with Zen roshis, and I have experienced it with strangers who would have never called themselves Buddhists.

Check-out clerks who smiled at me as I paid for my purchases, babies in grocery carts looking up at me with chubby faces, their eyes luminescent with a simple yet profound spiritual light, drivers pausing to let me enter the street with my car—these are all moments of shared kindness, one of the more simple, yet significant manifestations of bodhicitta.

As the boy and his mother turned a corner and were lost to my sight, I realized what had just happened. My attachment to my desire for a moment of refuge in an ocean of unrelenting pain had made me grasp the sensory objects of my desire—a cup of coffee and the setting moon. My mental picture had not included a stranger sitting in front of me smoking a cigarette, nor her young child staring up at me. I had wanted to be alone.

And so I suffered. Not because the woman invaded my space, but because I refused to let go of my attachment. And in my frustration with her and the situation, I failed to see the young Buddha sitting right in front of me.

And then a truly odd thing happened. A single tear fell from my left eye. And I suddenly felt ancient and very very Buddhist. It was as if I had become Avalokeshtavara, the Buddha of Infinite Compassion, known in Tibet as Chenrazig.

Chenrazig is often depicted with a thousand arms, and in each hand there is an eye that sheds a tear for the suffering of all sentient beings trapped in samsara.

Now I know that I am not Chenrazig. I had, after all, just dismissed a young Buddha from my presence because I was blinded by own desires. And yet the vision continued.

I was no longer just Tom sitting at a table with an empty coffee cup; I was a witness to the Great Mandala of existence. For a moment, the veil that separated me from the awareness of the profound sacredness of all beings and all things was lifted.

The single tear was still on my cheek. And it was for the young Buddha –child who had just been carried off by his mother. It was also for his mother, who had probably taken a seat in front of me because she was tired of carrying him around.

I shed the tear for the Barista, the young Muslim man who had made my coffee and whose eyes were constantly searching the crowd, his right foot continually tapping the floor with a nervous tension.

I shed the tear for the cats and their kittens that skulked in the shadows from restaurant to restaurant searching for scraps. And I shed a tear for myself, and all of us who miss those sacred moments when a Buddha, or whatever you call the Divine, is sitting right in front of us.

And then the moment became surreal. The air felt pregnant with awareness, as if creation had, in that moment, become aware of itself. Colors seemed more vibrant, even though the moon had disappeared across the sea somewhere in Arabia. And there was a sudden and unexpected sweetness in the gentle breeze from the waters of the Red Sea.

In Christianity the Peace That Passeth All Understanding is called Grace. In Arabic it is called Baraka. In Tibetan, the deep well of peace is called Rigpa.

Om Mani Peme Hum. This is the mantra of Chenrazig. It means Hail To The Jewel In The Lotus, and it is chanted and meditated upon by Tibetan Buddhists throughout the world. The jewel is compassion and the lotus is the heart. Through the power of all the Buddhas, may we all find the jewel and the lotus, and may we all also find a good cup of coffee.

Part Two

The Six Paramitas

Dana Paramita—the perfection of generosity, the open heart of being-ness itself. This paramita is similar to what Christians call charity, though it doesn’t mean just giving money to the poor. Dana also means unattached generosity, boundless openness, and what some might call unconditional love.

Sila paramita—virtue, a deep sense of morality

Shanti paramita—patience and tolerance of others

Virya paramita—energy, diligence and courage

Dhyana paramita—meditation, contemplation, concentration and absorption into the transcendent realms of consciousness

Prajna—transcendental wisdom

Personal Thoughts

For me, the tap root of the Paramitas is hidden within the very last paramita on the list—that of Prajna or transcendental wisdom. When prajna is glimpsed, all phenomena, all existence is seen as essentially empty and impermanent. What looks solid is seen for what it is—essentially emptiness. One realizes that the illusion of solidity is a trick of our nervous systems. There is, in truth, no one and nothing to grasp, nothing to hold on to. Add to this emptiness the insight of impermanence, and you have a heady-soup called samsara in Buddhism.

This would, indeed lead many, if not most of us, to a deep sense of despair and hopelessness were these two insights (emptiness and impermanence) not offset by two other qualities inherent in transcendent wisdom (prajna). These are bliss and luminosity.

This type of luminosity is not the type you can read in a book or see the world by. Rather, it is the luminosity of awareness itself. Tibetan Buddhists call it the Clear Light. As one approaches the center point of consciousness in oneself, there is a spontaneous arising of prajna or transcendent wisdom. This type of wisdom brings with it not only the luminosity of self-awareness, but also a kind of bliss. In Sanskrit, bliss is called ananda. And consciousness is said by yogis and yoginis to have three aspects—Sat (existence), Chit (knowledge) and Ananda (bliss).

For Buddhists, chit (knowledge), is replaced by bodhicitta, or the knowledge of one’s own inherent Buddha nature.

Through the inherent power of Buddhist and yogic meditation practice, I have, occasionally, experienced the radiant luminosity of prajna. I thought in those moments, that I would forever possess the light and bliss of awareness. But alas, this was not to be the case.

For one thing, there was nothing to possess and no one to possess it. This is one of the critical and central insights of the Diamond Sutra. Such concepts seem odd to us when we are caught up in the sensory display and personal desires of samsara. But it is self-evident as we enter prajna or transcendent wisdom. And what is this self-evident realization that occurs in prajna? It is that all things are both real and unreal. They, and we, are much like clouds or mirages having no real substance.

This sounds like gobbely-goop if you are in your ordinary mind (sensory based awareness). But it is self-evident when you reside in your Buddha mind (bodhicitta or prajna, transcendent wisdom). I think it might be helpful to bring this odd juxtaposition of reality and unreality down from the ephemeral metaphorical language of prajna (transcendent wisdom) into the language of quantum physics. It might help us to better understand this central enigma of the Diamond Sutra.

Let’s take your hands for an example. They are obviously real—at least at one level of awareness. They are, for instance, holding the paper that this article is written on, or if you are reading this on a computer, you use your hands to move the cursor, which moves the text. All of this is quite real.

But move with me, if you will, down into the microscopic and subatomic world of your hands. Here there is a whirling dervish dance of subatomic particles, all swirling about in space. In fact, as I mentioned in the first part of this article, there is more space than solid matter at the atomic level of reality. As we move deeper into this subatomic space, emptiness seems more real than solidity.

It is here that we must abandon quantum physics as our guide, since now there is nothing to measure or quantify and in order to have science you have to be able to measure something. But here, all we have is emptiness.

When our personal awareness resides in this emptiness (through meditation), all things are seen as essentially illusory—empty and devoid of substance. And so it is that your hands that appear to you as solid and real in one moment can, in the next, through the power of prajna or bodhicitta, appear as unreal. The Diamond Sutra takes the unusual philosophical stance that things are both real and unreal, both existing and non-existing. And it is this state of non-duality that shapes the experience of enlightenment.

The other reason I was not able to remain in these heightened states of awareness, quite frankly, was because I had not mastered the first four paramitas, which act as a kind of ground for prajna (transcendent wisdom) into everyday life. In other words, through meditation or dhyana paramita, I caught a glimpse of the vastness from the top of the mountain, but when it came time to come down into the valley and actually live life, I forgot the View (prajna).

The first four paramitas train the mind so that it (the mind) can eventually reflect the luminosity and wisdom of one’s own bodhicitta. This type of mind training was deemed vital by the Buddha for anyone desiring self-realization, and is one of the main focus points of The Diamond Sutra.

Let’s take a look at these, beginning with the fourth paramita—virya. Virya is both diligence and energy. It also implies spiritual courage. Indeed, anyone attempting to become self-realized must find or generate these qualities in him or herself. Samsara is often represented as a snare that catches us, and it takes immense energy, diligence and courage to escape its clutches.

In more realistic and less metaphorical terms, it takes energy, diligence and courage to stand up to and transform our own negativity. And if this dynamic self-transformative energy is not part of one’s innate nature, it must be cultivated.

The third paramita—shanti is characterized by patience and tolerance of others. Again, this is a method of training the mind to move towards its inherent bodhicitta. Patience and tolerance are expressions of prajna, and as one gets closer to self-realization these two qualities spontaneously appear. However, it has been my observation that shanti does not mean to make oneself a doormat, or to let others take advantage of you. There is an old Buddhist story though its roots may actually be Hindu.

According to the folk tale, an enlightened yogi was walking through the woods when he was attacked by a large poisonous snake. Using his yogic powers he avoided the attack, and the snake, stunned by the yogi’s abilities, asked to become a disciple. The yogi taught him the third paramita of shanti, which literally means peace.

Some time passed, and the yogi revisited the woods to see how his serpentine disciple was doing. The large reptile was ravaged with cuts and wounds. His guru asked, “What in the name of Buddha has happened to you?”

The snake explained that after his conversion to peace, he no longer wished to harm the local villagers. When they found out that he was a pacifist they kicked him and hit him with sticks for fun.

The yogi said, “I told you to practice the paramita of shanti, but I never told you to stop hissing.” In other words, in the duality that is samsara we may at times have to stand up for ourselves, but when doing so we should strive not to harm.

The second paramita—sila, means virtue or a deep sense of morality. This attitude is an expression of prajna (transcendent wisdom) and comes out of the fundamental insight that we are all interconnected. When we are acting out of prajna we cannot knowingly harm another being. But when we are in deluded states of mind, such harm is commonplace. This paramita of sila is an external code of conduct. It means not to steal, not to kill or harm another. When we are in our right mind (meaning prajna) then such actions are simply not possible. But when we are not in prajna (meaning our ordinary mind) such actions are possible, and the sila paramita protects us against ourselves. It is, in another way of looking at things, a safety device to avoid creating negative karma.

The first paramita—dana is the perfection of generosity, the open heart or what some might call unconditional love. When we reside in our Buddha nature (bodhicitta), or our transcendent wisdom (prajna), we are naturally and spontaneously openhearted. This is generosity of spirit, and it is one of the signs of emerging enlightenment.

When looking at the six paramitas, one can say that the first four are codes of conduct or internal attitudes. The fifth paramita is the practice of meditation, which reveals one’s own innate bodhicitta, and it is here that prajna, or transcendent wisdom is spontaneously revealed.

Now I personally have some difficulties with the first four paramitas, or more accurately, how they are sometimes practiced. I have written about the quandary of spiritual ideals on several occasions because they are truly double-edged swords. Whereas the fifth paramita, dhyana, is the practice of meditation, and prajna is its fruit, the first four paramitas are prime territory for making spiritual vows—meaning that we state our intention to practice them.

This is fine in and of itself, and in fact, I think one has to put a lot of energy and intention into the paramitas for them to work as a means towards enlightenment. But what do we do with ourselves when we screw up, when we fail to keep our vows? Do we beat ourselves up, or do we just take it as important information about our own negativity and start again?

What originally attracted me to Buddhism was its seeming lack of guilt. But as I studied Buddhist thought and practice from various cultures, guilt and shame raised its ugly head again. Depending upon the school and the tradition one is involved in, guilt and shame do sometimes show up.

I consider guilt and shame to be some of the most deleterious attitudes to ever befall humanity. They are useless emotions in that they do not lead us into greater self-awareness. They are just ruts to wallow in and used to self-flagellate ourselves. Insight into why we did what we did is far more resourceful at changing future behavior than condemning ourselves, or another for that matter.

And so, when by the Red Sea, I screwed up and failed to fulfill my intention to practice the two paramitas of shanti (tolerance) and dana (generosity of spirit)—all within a period of about two hours—I had the opportunity to condemn myself for breaking my own vows.

Fortunately, I had resolved to experiment with the two paramitas rather than take a vow to practice them no matter what. As a result, when I recognized the fact that I had failed in my undertaking, I was not gripped with shame and guilt. Instead, I felt the bitter truth of my own personal attachment. I had told myself that my desires were understandable given my state of unrelenting physical pain. A little refuge was all I had hoped for—a cup of decent coffee while sitting under the moon by the sea, and to do this alone.

When the realization dawned that I had missed an opportunity to experience the presence of the young Buddha in front of me, I did not experience guilt. Rather, I experienced grief—the type of grief that comes from standing face to face with one’s own emotional limitations. And then in a moment of grace, perhaps due to years of meditation practice, the grief changed into a form of luminous awareness in which prajna, transcendent wisdom, revealed itself to me for a few shining moments.

I offer this little bit of insight for those of you who choose to experiment with the Paramitas. My personal experience is that they are well worth the effort. And I suggest that anyone undertaking them read the Diamond Sutra. Why drink from a cup when you can go to the stream itself?

A Hathor Planetary Message

Through Tom Kenyon

Destabilization

 

Your world is entering a period of immense destabilization.

In past messages we have referred to Chaotic Nodes as unexpected catalytic and chaotic changes. We have also noted in past communications that multiple Chaotic Nodes are emerging, and their interaction is what we are referring in this message as destabilization.

(see a previous Hathor message titled Escalation of Chaotic Nodes and the Dismantling of 3-D Reality).

This destabilization of your world is occurring at the ecological, social and individual levels of existence.

Let’s begin with the ecological issues.

Your planetary environment is, essentially, being poisoned. The acidification of your oceans, the overuse of pesticides, chemical agents and fossil fuels are all interacting to create an ecological Chaotic Node of immense proportions. Indeed, a growing number of your scientists are saying that your Earth is entering the beginning stages of a “6th mass extinction.”

We will turn our attention to the ramifications of these issues in a moment but let us address the other two levels first.

At a social level your world is entering a highly volatile and destabilizing state. This is a complex situation but addressing the most rudimentary levels we would say you are witnessing a clash of cultural values as well as the impact of both climate change and war on migrations of human populations, some of which are being caused by circumstances and some of which are being manipulated by power brokers behind the scenes.

The third level is the individual—you—the one reading this message.

This is also a complex situation and there are several levels involved. One of these levels has to do with the poisoning of your planet’s environment that we mentioned earlier. And as a result of climate change and deforestation, new forms of bacteria and viruses are being spread globally.

These microforms of life are not inert. They are living intelligences that evolve, and they are evolving very rapidly in ways that will make your current medical methodologies for dealing with them ineffective.

A second challenge to your individual stability has to do with the magnetic shifts and dimensional alterations that are unfolding on your planet. Because your nervous system operates according to the principles of bio-electromagnetism, the neural networks in your nervous systems are being challenged by these shifts and alterations. Some of you, especially those who are energetically sensitive, will be prone to this more than others. But increasingly, no one will be exempt.

Communications between human beings will get more challenging—to be gracious about it.

What may surprise you is that some of these challenges will arise in close friendships and intimate relationships. You may find that seemingly insignificant external events can set off tsunamis of emotional responses.

There are two primary reasons for this phenomenon.

The first has to do with the destabilization of your nervous system making it more prone to losing its center. And the second level has to do with the process of catalytic evolution that you are undergoing as a human being at this point in time. What we mean by this is what has been hidden is being revealed. The deepest catacombs of your subconscious are being turned over like a plow cutting through a field. This is essentially a very disturbing state to deal with especially for those of you who think of yourselves as spiritual beings.

If you are of the opinion that being a spiritual being requires that you always be in a state of bliss and happiness then you will find this purification process deeply disturbing, but it is—quite frankly—required for individual evolution and liberation from the restrictions imposed by your religions and confining histories. It is also necessary for humanity, as a whole, to face and transform its own shadow material (i.e., unresolved emotional issues and destructive belief patterns) if humankind is to survive.

In past messages we have said that a course of action could be changed in the 11th hour. By this we were referring to a metaphor meaning that in the last hour before an irrevocable shift occurs it is possible to change an outcome.

We are still of this opinion, but you are well past the 11th hour. You are at one minute before midnight, metaphorically speaking, of course.

What this means is that massive changes will have to occur in a very short period of time if you are collectively to avoid the 6th mass extinction.

As the ecological and social aspects of this destabilization process are so complex, we wish to confine our comments to practical suggestions for you.

One marker, evolutionarily speaking for transition states between dimensions as a human being, is the growing perception that life is a dream. If this occurs for you, you will experience your life and the events of your life as having a dreamlike insubstantial quality. You will still have to deal with the realities of your physical existence, but there will be an increasing sense that your physical existence has an unreal quality about it.

We do realize that in many of our messages we have sounded like a broken record, repeating ourselves again and again especially when referring to coherent states of emotion like happiness, joy and/or appreciation. This has to do with physics and neuropsychology. Coherent states of emotion are an antidote to the destabilization of your nervous system caused by the various factors that we mentioned previously.

There are many ways to accomplish this task of bringing coherency to your nervous system. For one, we suggest you work with the sound meditation A Bridge Between the Worlds (see Tom’s comments below) on a regular basis as a means to introduce this type of coherent emotion into your nervous system.

Another way to create more coherency is to introduce more joy into your life, which is indeed paradoxical for many of you. Very few cultures underwrite the necessity for joy as a value. Sacrifice, martyrdom and self-forgetting are what seem to be valued most in many societies, but from our perspective these are the greatest errors, at least from the perspective of spiritual evolution.

We are very sensitive to the fact that many of you reading this message may be dealing with this paradox (i.e., how to create more joy your life) in very direct and challenging ways.

Our advice, like all advice, should be “taken with a grain of salt.” This is simply our perspective on this particular challenge. Having stated this caveat, our suggestion is to cleave away from your life the thought forms of self-sacrifice and martyrdom. Find more ways to discover joy even in the smallest things. It does not matter how small they are.

And finally, find the courage to speak your truth to those closest to you. This type of truth speaking and self-revealing is, in our opinion, critical for your successful transition through the current and on-going period of global destabilization.

The Hathors

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

First of all I don’t think the first portion of this message should come as a surprise to anyone who has managed to avoid being duped by the hypnotic spell of our mass media and taken a close look at the course of recent world events.

For those readers not familiar with the concept of the 6th mass extinction of life on this planet, below is a link to a class handout I gave participants at a past workshop called The Biophotonic Human. It contains both scientific and layperson friendly sources regarding the growing evidence that we are at the cusp of or have actually entered the 6th mass extinction.

The Spiral of Ascension-Class Handouts

My reason for sharing this information is to introduce what I consider to be a vital concept in a way that is balanced and forthright—meaning without sensationalism—and grounded in scientific credibility. What you decide to do or not do with this information is in your domain of choice, not mine.

While this is a relatively brief message it has levels of information encoded within it.

One of the levels I found intriguing was the statement regarding the perception of life as a dream. This is a very complex topic but in its simplest form, the Hathors are saying that as we move upward in consciousness there is often a growing perception that life is dreamlike. We begin to see through “the illusions” of this world to sense the underlying reality that we are creating our own unique perception of “reality.” Furthermore, we begin to sense more clearly that our embodied existence is just one dimension within a vast interdimensional realm of consciousness.

The perception of life as a dreamlike mirage addressed by the Hathors has a comforting and interconnected quality to it. In other words, when this state of perception arises you feel enigmatically deeply connected to yourself at a deeper level than is normally experienced. At the same time, you deal with the physical realities of your existence and do not try to avoid them. This leads to a type of amusement at being both localized in time and space while recognizing that some part of you (i.e., your multidimensional reality) transcends time and space as well as all the phenomena (i.e., situations, persons and places) that comprise your life.

I think it would behoove us here to make a distinction between what the Hathors are referring to as the dream-like nature of life from the perspective of higher dimensions of consciousness and dissociation from life, which is a mental aberration.

If you are sensing a dissociation or disconnection from life that leaves you feeling less connected to yourself, and if you are feeling emotional states that are discomforting rather than comforting, then I would say you are not experiencing the type of upward movement the Hathors are talking about in this message. Rather you might be experiencing the effects of stress taking a toll on your emotional wellbeing. This is why the Hathors keep discussing coherent emotions attained either through meditation and/or listening to sound pieces that are nurturing and calming like A Bridge Between the Worlds (see the link to this sound meditation below), as well as through the cultivation of coherent emotions such as—but certainly not limited to—joy, happiness and/or appreciation.

In the last the very last paragraph of this message they said:

“And finally, find the courage to speak your truth to those closest to you. This type of truth speaking and self-revealing is, in our opinion, critical for your successful transition through the current and on-going period of global destabilization.”

While working on my section I asked them what they meant by this, and they said that authentic spiritual evolution and freedom depend upon the two pillars of speaking your truth to others and revealing yourself in ways that open internal pathways (within you) and outer pathways (in those around you) for change to occur. If you keep your light hidden from yourself and others, the world will not be liberated by your innate luminosity. At the same time, if you repress and keep your distress and negative responses to what is happening around you hidden from yourself and others (by perpetuating self-forgetting and distraction) you will create a shadow realm that will preclude and eclipse any true spiritual light that might emanate from your being.

It has recently come to my attention that someone, apparently in the Netherlands, has written and circulated a Hathor message attributing it to me. I find this type of outlandish behavior irritating and unethical—not to mention illegal.

Chant of the Four Elements – Tom Kenyon

Chant of the Four Elements

Tom Kenyon, M.A., published 2010

First of all, let me address a bit of misinformation. The sounds/words for the Chant of the Four Elements are not of ancient Egyptian origin despite the writings of some individuals.

The Hathors gave me this chant while I was in a meditative state many years ago. And they said that these sounds/words were the closest approximations to the sounds they use to denote the Four Elements. The actual sounds are complex waveforms that are not easily articulated by the human voice.

The use of these sounds/words for the Four Elements seems akin to an ancient understanding regarding the consciousness of matter, and a rather esoteric belief that the Four Elements can, and will, respond to human consciousness under specific conditions.

For those of us in the modern era, such ideas may seem quaint and misguided. After all, the science of chemistry has clearly mapped out the atomic structures responsible for the elements. And this highly practical knowledge is clearly reflected in the Periodic Table of Elements.

In this chemical view of matter, all of the elements in the known universe are comprised of teeny tiny atomic and molecular tinker toys that can be manipulated or changed. Indeed much of our modern technology is based upon the technical knowledge of how to manipulate these minute building blocks of matter at will.

For most scientists, the question of consciousness does not present itself at this minute level of creation (i.e., the atomic and molecular substrate responsible for the elements themselves). Indeed, if you were to ask such a question of most chemists, you would be laughed at for even considering such a preposterous idea.

But anyone who has dabbled in ancient Greek or esoteric philosophies (including European Alchemy) has, no doubt, stumbled upon the concept of the Four Elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water). Perhaps this primitive view of the four elements came about as humans wrestled with trying to understand the world they lived in without the benefit of being able to “see” the hidden structure of matter (i.e., the subatomic, atomic and molecular building blocks that actually comprised the elements around them). And/or perhaps they were inspired in ways we don’t fully appreciate as we are so far removed from our early ancestors.

Before the rise of monotheism, during the high period of paganism, there was a plethora of gods and goddesses, demigods and earth spirits that humans interacted with. And in this deeply mythic and archetypal world, the Four Elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water could be communed with directly. The purposes of communion between a human and an elemental were quite varied, and evidently included such things as cleansing and purification, the healing of dis-ease, empowerment, and in some cases, prophecy.

In the Essene tradition, whose roots were both pagan and monotheistic, the Four Elements were sometimes viewed as angels. And interacting with these angelic elementals was viewed as a way to temporarily rise up into higher states of consciousness.

I have personally noted that, for me at least, the air element is especially good for this type of thing (the transformation of consciousness). Walking through a windstorm can be exhilarating, enlightening and even healing if you are in the right disposition. When I lived on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a time, I discovered that storms, gale force winds and even mild hurricanes were great transformers of consciousness. (Please do note I am not suggesting, for a moment, that you go for a walk during a storm or, goddess forbid, a mild hurricane. Such immersion into the elemental worlds is not for the faint of heart and is certainly not to be condoned in our overly protective nanny state where any attempt to step into the wildness of being is held suspect.)

But I have digressed by harping on one of my pet peeves—the imprisonment of the human soul by the soulless ones who seem to be increasing their numbers here in the post-modern era. Putting my little rant aside, let us return to a bit more historical background concerning the Four Elements.

The archetypal understanding of the Four Elements is hardly confined to the pre-monotheistic western mystical or philosophical traditions. It shows up in indigenous shamanism throughout the world as well, and many of these shamanic traditions antedate Christianity and Judaism.

In ancient India, spiritual use of the fire element became a highly ritualized art form. The roots of the Hindu fire puja unquestionably reach backward in time to the early beginnings of civilization. To this day, yogis and yoginis conduct sacred fire ceremonies, or yagnas, in order to transform inner impediments to their enlightenment through communion with the fire element, or agni, itself. And such sacred fires are often used for making offerings to deities, for spiritual purification, Initiations, healing and, under certain conditions, prophecy as well.

Buddhism also uses fire in many of its rituals. Some Buddhist sects use the fire element more than others, and perhaps most notable, in this regard, are the Tibetan Buddhists who use the fire element extensively during pujas, empowerments and many types of prayers as well. I will always remember the distinct aroma of yak butter candles in the temples of Tibet, their warm glow an ever-constant presence.

Moving from the yogas of India and Asia to the western mystical traditions, we encounter a fascinating bit of history. According to some scholars, the Western root of the Four Elements as a philosophical concept reaches back to the Babylonians and one of their primary texts—the Enuma Elis, a scripture written on clay tablets that researchers have placed between the 16th and 18th Centuries B.C. The Enuma Elis describes four cosmic elements: the earth, sea, sky and wind, which, if scholars are correct, morphed over time into the Four Elements (Earth, Fire, Water and Air).

~ Side Bar ~

Note: While it is not salient to our discussion regarding the Four Elements, I thought some readers might find a key element in the Enuma Elis of interest. The text names Marduk as the supreme god among all Mesopotamian divinities, and states that humankind was created for the service of the gods. I personally find this bit of information of great interest since many scholars trace the roots of the Babylonians to the earlier Sumerians. Like the Babylonians, the Sumerians recorded their history and mythologies onto clay tablets, many of which have remarkably survived to this day. It is here in the Sumerian Tablets that an unusual encounter in antiquity is recorded, which seems to locate the source of the Babylonian belief that humankind was created by the gods (perhaps aliens?) to serve them as a slave race. I am not going to discuss this further other than to direct those who are interested in such things as alien encounters in ancient cultures to the fascinating writings of Zechariah Sitchin.

~ Back to the Point ~

When the Hathors gave me their take on the Four Elements I immediately recognized a similarity between their view and the views of various ancient spiritual traditions. But their method for entering into communion with the Four Elements was surprising and unexpected. Ever the pragmatist, I set out for myself to see if what they predicted actually occurred when I meditated on the Four Elements as they suggested. And I can honestly say their method works in profound ways, having engaged it many times and in many different situations.

The Chant of the Four Elements: A Hathorian Perspective

The Hathors, who originally communicated this information to me, say that each of the Four Elements has conscious awareness, though quite different in quality from that of humans. It is possible, according to them, to enter into an energetic communion with each of the elements, thereby opening a portal to other realms of consciousness. And indeed, that is the purpose for chanting this chant to begin with.

As I mentioned earlier, each of the sounds/words for the Four Elements is an approximation of what is, in actuality, a complex waveform. These waveforms cannot easily be reproduced by the human voice since they are continuous tones. The sound/word for the Earth element is EL; fire is KA; and water is LEEM. In the Hathors’ view, air and space are combined into one element and is denoted by the sound OM.

According to them, the Four Elements respond to human emotion, especially those we call appreciation or gratitude.

When you direct your feelings of appreciation or gratitude to the elements during the chant, you open an energetic line of non-verbal communication between you and the elements. It is a mind-altering experience, at the very least, and the longer you engage the chant with feelings of appreciation or gratitude, the stronger the effects become.

There are two phases to the chant—the outer phase (in which you direct appreciation or gratitude to the outer elements of the world outside you) and the inner phase (in which you direct appreciation or gratitude to the inner elements of your body).

The concept of the outer elements versus the inner elements may be a bit obscure for some individuals. So to clarify things… the outer elements refer to all the elements outside your body—the Earth element is the earth itself. The Fire element is the sun or any source of fire/heat outside your body. The Water element is any body of water, or form of water outside your body. And the Air element is the space and air that surrounds you.

Thus when engaged in sending appreciation to the outer Four Elements, you might send appreciation/gratitude to the Earth on the sound EL. When you hear the sound KA, you might send appreciation/gratitude to the sun (even if you cannot see it), or some other form of fire or heat such as a candle, or even a warm radiator. When you hear the sound LEEM, you might choose to send your appreciation/gratitude to the ocean, or to a river or stream, or perhaps clouds (since they are made of water vapor), or even to a glass of water that is nearby. Finally, when you hear the sound OM, you might choose to alternate your sending of appreciation/gratitude to the air around you and then to the sense of space around your body.

The next phase in the chant is to the inner elements. And as with the outer elements, you have a lot of leeway in how you work with this.

When you hear the sound EL, you might choose to direct appreciation/gratitude to your bones (the densest part of your body).

When you hear the sound KA, you might direct appreciation/gratitude to your Solar Plexus—to the etheric fire within you that yogis call Bhuta Agni, or you might choose to direct your appreciation/gratitude to the fire of digestion that yogis call Jathara Agni, since digestion is, in fact, a slow burning fire (oxidation) that releases nutrients and energy. If your awareness is very subtle, you might choose to send appreciation/gratitude to the mitochondria in the nuclei of the cells that comprise your body (with the exception of red blood cells which do not have a nucleus). The mitochondria are the power generators for the cells and they produce a type of fire as well.

When you hear the sound LEEM, you might decide to send appreciation/gratitude to the water element in your body, such as your blood or lymph.

And finally, when you hear the sound OM, you might choose to send appreciation/gratitude to the air element within your body, such as the air that is in your lungs. And when you send appreciation/gratitude to the element of space within you, you might try sending your appreciation to the space between your organs. Or if you have a very subtle awareness, you might send appreciation/gratitude to the space between the atoms of your body!

I have noticed that when I engage the chant in this way (i.e., alternating between the outer and inner elements) for a few minutes, the boundary between my inner world and the outer world becomes blurred. Interestingly, this blurring of personal boundaries is one of the characteristics of certain mystical states of body and mind. Other persons who have worked with the chant have also reported similar experiences.

To use the chant the way it was given to me, send the feeling of appreciation or gratitude to the outer elements first and then to the inner elements that comprise your body. And then turn your attention back to the outer elements, then back to the inner, and so forth. Each cycle of the chant is used to send appreciation or gratitude to either the outer or the inner elements.

As you continue to direct your emotion in this manner, an inner bridge of awareness is established that can profoundly alter awareness and allow you to enter into communion with the more subtle aspects of these elements.

It is my hope that this brief description of the process will serve you as you explore the potency of this chant. In the final analysis, I think it is the union of your appreciation (or gratitude) with your awareness (or contemplation) of a given element (Earth, Fire, Water or Air) that opens the portal between you and the elemental realms of being. In other words, the chant itself is just a device to trigger awareness that it is time to move your attention to another element.

Communion with the elemental realms of being can produce profound altered states of mind and body. And they can open doorways to remarkable fields of knowledge.

Here is a sample of the chant from my CD entitled Ascension Codes:

Conversations With Magdalen – Tom Kenyon

Conversations With Magdalen

Tom’s Introduction

The Enigma of Transformation

You are about to read a transcript from several private conversations we have had with Mary Magdalen over the last several years.

These “talks” dealt with a wide range of topics and we personally found Magdalen’s comments deeply insightful, which is why we are sharing them.

M, as I call her, is a master of one-liners—short pithy statements that leave one reeling. One of these in particular caught my eye, perhaps because it addressed a strange paradox.

“True transformation does not require hope and moves even in despair.”

Mary Magdalen

The word transformation has two roots—the word “form,” meaning the structure of something and the Latin word or prefix “trans,” meaning beyond, across or on opposite sides. Thus the word transformation means something akin to moving beyond form.

Our entire world is in a process of transformation.

In truth, it always has been.

But for whatever reasons—some say time acceleration—the rate of transformation has sped up. The Industrial Age has given way to the Age of Information and Nano-technology with a speed and a force that has left the Western world reeling. Whole industries and ways of life have disappeared in the blink of an eye. New technologies enter our lives at an ever faster pace creating what the Chinese language denotes when it uses the word transformation—a combination of two ideograms meaning danger and opportunity.

There is opportunity whenever transformation occurs. This is because new territory is opened and stepping beyond our habitual view of things can usher in new ways of perceiving as well as new ways of acting in the world.

But there is also danger. The danger arises out of the unavoidable fact that we may not fully understand the new territory we are entering and we might do something that we will later regret. This applies to all types of transformation, by the way.

But since I was talking about the Age of Information and Nano-technology, let me pull up one simple yet poignant example.

The introduction of pesticides into agriculture heralded a new era, as did the development of petrochemicals to produce things like plastic and the ever-growing array of techno devices that our modern way of life in the west depends upon. This has been, and continues to be, a major source of global transformation. But there has been a price tag—the contamination of our ecosystem through toxic chemicals and agents that have never existed in the biosphere before.

Back in the early 1960’s Rachel Carson sensed the unseen dangers of this type of transformation—namely the introduction of chemical agents and pesticides into the environment. Armed with solid and credible documentation, she released her book Silent Spring in 1962, which many credit with giving birth to the environmental movement.

As I write these words, some fifty-one years later, our environment continues to be negatively affected by technological advances. How we choose to manage—or fail to manage—the pace and type of technological development that we release into the world will determine, to a great extent, our future upon this planet.

But there is another element at play here, what the futurist Alvin Toffler called Future Shock. The idea is that we are not biologically or evolutionarily equipped to deal with the speed of transformation that we are a part of. As a result of too much happening too fast, more and more of us are succumbing to a mental state akin to shock.

The Hopi have a word for the state of the world we live in, and they call it Koyannisqatsi—meaning life out of balance. From the Indigenous perspective, the underlying source of our collective post-modern malaise is quite simply a disconnection from the Earth itself. And it is only through a reconnection with the Earth and our ecosystem that we can return to sanity.

I often say that it is a highly creative and courageous act to find balance in a culture that is essentially dysfunctional. And yet balance is crucial to the spiritual journey for without it we cannot find our way through the maze of Maya (the illusions of this world), or increasingly through what I call Techno-Maya—a 21st Century version of illusion generated through technologically generated mass hypnosis that makes it easier to control the masses.

All of this brings me to an essential question for those of us striving to live upward in consciousness. How do we deal with the hopelessness and despair that arises when many of us on the spiritual path contemplate the collapsing of our ecosystem and witness the increasing madness of our world not to mention the technological manipulation of information?

Magdalen was addressing the process of personal transformation when she gave that little tidbit about true transformation not requiring hope and moving even in despair. But her observation most certainly applies to our collective quandary as well.

The journey of an Initiate requires a different attitude toward the world and its challenges than that of most people. For me, you are an Initiate if you are striving to live upward in consciousness regardless of the spiritual tradition or path you have chosen.

And a central question for any Initiate (i.e., you) living in the midst of such Koyannisqatsi is how do you persevere? How do you live upward when so much of the world seems to be spiraling downward out of control?

Each of us must answer these questions for ourselves, and our very lives—at least our spiritual lives (meaning our higher consciousness) depend on how we answer those difficult and thorny questions.

Since I was asked to write an Introduction to this section of the book, I will offer my opinion. But do understand that my view is constantly changing, and my opinion next year might be different than what I hold to be true now.

My view is this:

We are spiritual beings having a human experience—not just human primates, with “monkey-minds” having spiritual experiences. There is a difference between these two perspectives, and they are not just semantic.

By the term “spiritual” I simply mean some aspect of consciousness that is transcendent to time, place and circumstance.

There is some part of us that is non-local and beyond the tumult of the world. There is some part of us that can bring a sense of freedom that is beyond all understanding, because its origins are beyond our localized human identity and struggle.

How you make contact with this non-local aspect of you is a fundamental question. Each of us must find our own way.

Some of us will find it through various spiritual traditions, and some of us will find it without the aid and without the limitations of these traditions by wrestling with our human existence through direct inquiry.

This is no easy task, and it is made all the more difficult, I think, by the fact that we are collectively and individually faced with having to confront our shadows.

By the word shadow I am referring to our un-owned emotional material—the dark underbelly of our self-identity. This is the place of self-hatred, violence and self-destruction. It is a place the faint of heart do not go, and many of us who self-identify ourselves as spiritual persons will do anything to avoid it. But we do so at great peril.

Shortly before his death, the Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung said that humanity must come to terms with its collective shadow or be destroyed by it.

Looking at what is happening in the world today, I would say that humanity has failed in this task. But then again, we are not solely to blame for this. Much of the responsibility for our avoidance of this difficult and dark territory falls squarely upon the shoulders of religion as well as many of our spiritual traditions including most definitely the New Age.

This leads me inexorably back to Magdalen and her unique perspective. This being does not shy away from dark un-owned material. She un-earths it and brings it to the light of conscious awareness. And she does this with an eloquent directness that I personally find refreshing.

And so I bring us back to her comment, which I quoted early on…

“True transformation does not require hope and moves even in despair.”

You and me—as well as the entire world—are caught up in a global maelstrom.

We are witnessing the death throes of an old world and the birthing of a new one, but only time will tell if this new world will be worth living in or not.

This uncertainty leaves us in a precarious emotional position.

Finding our way through the carnage of our civilization as it morphs into something new is not easy. And along the way, many of us might dip into the shadow side of hopelessness and despair when we look at the world around us.

The paradox within her statement is that true (meaning authentic) transformation moves (or unfolds) even in despair. How could this be true? Isn’t despairing the end point of hopelessness?

Yes and no, in my opinion.

If despair is indulged in without any other counterforce in the psyche, then yes it can easily be the end point.

But if we (meaning you and me) can find a way to experience our transcendent Selves—or at the very least our more resourceful natures—then we will neither be bound by, or defined by time, place and circumstance.

For some of us, this kind of freedom will be generated through the art of transcendence via some type of spiritual tradition. Some of us will discover it through new forms of creative insight and expression having little to do with what others might deem to be “spiritual” at all.

But in my opinion, it isn’t so important how we attain a renewed sense of ourselves so long as we attain it. Without the type of renewal that arises from the inner well of authentic spirituality and/or from deep and profound creative insight, I think we will be left ill equipped to cope with—much less transform—the chaos that has engulfed the world.

But let us take another last look at M’s enigmatic comment about transformation and despair.

As each of us lives the transformational process that is our own lives, it inevitably intersects with the larger transformation that the world is going through. And because we are collectively paying the price for un-owned shadows, we may from time-to-time fall prey to the shadowy feelings of hopelessness and despair.

Should this occur for you, as it has for me, I think it might be best to view these difficult emotions as a call to presence rather than a sign of failure. Hopelessness and despair can certainly be, though not necessarily, a sign that it is all over. And much like the call of the Sirens out of ancient Greek mythology that enticed sailors to their end, we can easily be seduced if we are vulnerable to such feelings. After all, anyone who has truly entered the dark seas of hopelessness and despair knows that these feelings can have a strange seductive quality about them.

But just because something arises within us, or around us, does not mean that we have to accept it.

My advice is to transcend those shadowy moments, should they arise, through potent spiritual insight and/or through bold creativity—meaning the act of doing something radically different than what you are used to. What that action might be is up to you.

True spiritual insight and profound creativity can change all that the mind perceives including the darkest and most difficult to redeem of human emotions—despair.

“True transformation does not require hope and moves even in despair.”

Mary Magdalen

Judi Sion’s introduction to:

Conversations With Magdalen

Many synchronicities coalesced to create the atmosphere in which I left the East Coast of the United States and moved West. It was my dream to edit a particular channel’s information on Soul Mates. Instead I was given the rights to edit his teachings on UFOs. Not exactly the same thing, but close enough, right? Relationships can be quite alien!

That book wound up being titled “UFOs and the Nature of Reality,” and it was my first foray into a whole new genre. I can’t say that I did or did not believe in “aliens” prior to doing that book. It took me two years of walking in the wind on the Northern Shore of Orcas Island to wrap (or unwrap) my head around the concept that we were created by an alien race—that aliens were the missing link in our genetic structure.

It required reading everything Zecharia Sitchin had ever written and listening to everything that particular channel, whose work I admired, had ever said that could be construed as being about aliens and our creation.

Those years walking in the wind, analyzing the information I’d been given, resulted in a remarkable realization, reasoned out over that two-year period. If we were created by what we call aliens, to act as a slave race to mine gold for them, then that means the thought held in our creation was to create a slave race. And if thought really does create, then that means deeply held in our subconscious, and in our very DNA, is the idea that we must serve, that we are lower than our creators, and that we must be subservient, and that would explain a lot of human behavior.

I’ve come a long way since that time, some 25 years ago. I’ve now replaced the word “God” in my vocabulary with the word “alien.” After all, it’s all relative, so to speak. What’s alien to one person is God to another.

We have a lot of “head unwrapping” to do to grasp the whole picture, and the whole picture is really too vast to be comprehended by human minds, Magdalen tells me.

I am grateful for the “head unwrapping” I’ve done. I no longer look to some God/god/Goddess/goddess outside of self. I honor the many brilliant and not so brilliant teachers who have gone before—as long as their teaching does not enslave humankind further, as long as they don’t claim to know everything, and as long as they don’t claim to be “the only one.”

Tom and I have been working with this being known as Mary Magdalen since 2001. She had one life on Earth and she has not returned. Through highly advanced application and use of her many KA bodies, she can communicate with many beings on Earth. Bear in mind the clarity and merit of channeled information is relative to the evolutionary state of the channel. That is why channeled material varies so much in quality.

In the last 12 years we’ve had countless discussions with Mary Magdalen, who asks us to spell her name without the letter “e” to distinguish information from this aspect of her through Tom from material given through other channels.

At first I treated her like I had been taught to treat Deity. I was a supplicant. I bowed my head in respect and almost groveled, though she never asked for such behavior. She never would. It’s what we’re taught in a Judeo-Christian world. Now I bow in wonder and admiration, as she continues to awe me with her brilliance and eloquence. (No true Goddess/goddess/God/god has ever required our supplication, although Jehovah does come to mind, but that’s the story of another alien.)

I call this “Conversations with Magdalen,” because that’s what they were. They are the result of me talking to her as if she was my best friend, which in many ways, next to Tom, she is.

There is a very small, but deeply important sharing from Yeshua.

I had to read his short sharing three times to really get it.

My old teacher used to say, “Yes, I know you heard it. But have you owned it.” There is a distinct difference between hearing something and owning it within—really getting it.

These conversations are the result of me going to each of these remarkable beings—through Tom Kenyon’s amazing ability to tune his brain to any frequency and contact any being he chooses—and imploring them to dialogue about something that was on my mind. I was always deeply in conflict over something when I asked the questions that yielded these answers.

The concept of oneness has been an issue for me. I never bought the concept. All of a sudden, one day, it became a litany, used by people who mean well, by and large. And almost overnight it became part of the love and light show of the New Age. It seemed to be one of those litanies that no one argued with.

I argue with everything. I question everything.

And let’s be real, there are some people I refuse to be one with, like George Bush. That was my laugh line during his autocracy, but it was also my truth.

I have never accepted the notion that we are all one soul; many sparks of one big out-of-control forest fire. It just doesn’t make sense to me, and more importantly, it doesn’t feel right. And it seems to be used as an excuse by some to avoid doing the hard work of evolution.

So this is not the Biblical Magdalen speaking in these conversations. This is a multi-dimensional being, an Arcturian to be specific, who had one life on Earth and has not returned.

Most of the images and stories we carry over from the Bible are out-and-out lies, created by men who didn’t want women to have power in the then new population  control mechanism called the Roman Catholic Church.

And since we’re on the subject, in case you a victim of religion’s unyielding assault on Magdalen’s one life as an Earthling, I strongly suggest you seek the truth about those lies.

Pope Gregory began the rumors about her, and they are based on nothing but his own misogynistic ignorance. Nowhere in this adulterated novel called the Bible does it say anything about her character. The truth is, Pope Gregory started a nasty rumor, mixed a cocktail of mentions of different women from various texts, and the Church covered his ignorant and untrue rumor by calling it a “conflation of texts.”

Let me give you some alternative synonyms for the word conflation: mishmash, cocktail, a compost (with apologies to composting).

So please release whatever previously held pictures you may have, and consider, for a moment, that these are the words of highly evolved multi-dimensional beings.

Magdalen and Yeshua each had one life on this Earth. They each came to do a job, to teach and to imbue mankind with light in a dismal time. These are the beings as they are today, realized multi-dimensional beings, who happen to be Arcturian in their genetic origin and came to Earth for one lifetime each.

These are conversations I had with Mary Magdalen from 2007 until the present.  There is also one powerful but brief conversation with Yeshua and a comment by Isis on what she calls the tomb of the feminine.

This is not the Biblical Magdalen. This is no penitent, shameful, hussy, as Pope Gregory tried to portray her as being in an attempt to shame and lower women and keep the power within the male circle of the Roman Church.

She told us everything she wanted shared about this “Biblical Magdalene” and her time in the ancient world in “The Magdalen Manuscript,” which should be required reading in all feminist classes and all Bible classes. She spoke about her time as an Initiate in the Temple of Isis and how she met Yeshua by the well and about her pain and grief when he was killed.

She said that was all she wanted to share about that one lifetime as a human being.

This being I had conversations with is who she was before her lifetime as an Earthling and who she has been and continues to be since that lifetime: a powerful, brilliant, eloquent, multi-dimensional being, who happens to be Arcturian. The Arcturians have been our protectors for millions of years. A few of them, such as Mary Magdalen, Yeshua ben Joseph and Sanat Kumara came into a body to bring light and teach.

This makes their thoughts and ideas of more interest to me than beings who’ve never been on Earth in a body. Until you’ve experienced life in a body in 3-D, you’re a disembodieded spirit from another dimension of existence with no experience “down here.”

I held Yeshua at arms length all of my life because I blamed him for what Christianity has become, but after reading and re-reading this simple passage from him, I realize it wasn’t his fault that mankind so altered his words and his intentions. And having now spent quite a bit of time with Arcturians I realize what he struggled with.

Arcturians are “mission oriented,” or they have been, and he was a man on a mission to bring a message to humanity. The message got twisted and contorted and barely resembles what he came to teach, but that wasn’t his fault.

Men took his innocence and used it to propagandize and control populations. It was spin, or as historians have put it, a conflation of texts. Change a few words, here and there, and you change the whole meaning, which is what happened with much of what he said.

These amazing beings are still very much alive in the ninth dimension and what they have to say has great meaning to me because they’ve been here, in a body, on Earth, paying taxes and rent, just like the rest of us. They have experienced the pressures of 3-D.

To get the most benefit from the following texts, I strongly suggest that you throw out the pictures that you carry in your mind about “who” historical and Biblical figures are, and, in particular, where they came from.

We don’t just come from Montreal, or Berlin, or New York.

Gautama Buddha was from Orion. Confucious was from Orion.

Shiva chose the Blue Ray in the 10th Dimension and was from Arcturus.

Kuan Yin was an electromagnetic being who greatly influenced Gautama Buddha in his understanding of enlightenment.

Magdalen said to me, “Every dynamic being who created a religion or spiritual path had off-planet genetics. Beings in higher dimensions do not understand the immense duality of the third dimension until they are here.”

After all these years, all these opportunities with grand teachers, I stand in appreciation of Shakespeare when he wrote these words, whoever he was and whatever planet he came from, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

Mary Magdalen’s Introduction

You are being made privy to private conversations that have spanned several years between me and Judi Sion, through this channel.

They are excerpts from conversations and dialogues between a being who lives in the spirit worlds (myself) and a woman who lives in your world. It was a meeting of the minds—hers and mine—centered most often around lies about the feminine and the consequences of this distortion upon your religions and ultimately your destiny.

You are at a pivotal point in your collective history, but from the vantage point of history itself, there have been and will continue to be, many pivotal points.

History is a consequence of individuals living their lives.

So the essential question, for you at least is, what pivotal point have you entered in relationship to your own existence upon this world and your journey as a soul, as a consciousness?

I have spoken to it before, and I spoke to it again in these conversations. It is a question of individual freedom to move upward in consciousness or devolve into some lesser form of being.

Although your eyes may report to you and your other senses confirm that you are more or less the same human being you always have been, you are actually continually evolving or devolving through the beliefs you entertain as truths and the choices you make as your reality.

Anyone who deems to make this choice for you is a thief and a robber in my mind. And in my mind you have all been robbed, and your first task in order to evolve to the higher potentials of your being is to regain what you have lost and to take back what was always rightfully yours.

I will make this brief and to the point.

In the metaphorical Garden of Eden where the tree of knowledge stands, you shall stand and claim your right to have this knowledge (that you are a creator). This knowledge is a part of you, for you are the tree itself, and those who try to separate you from it, from this knowledge, did so in an attempt to perpetuate their own spiritual and earthly power.

For some it is a heresy to pick the fruit from the tree that is your very being. For others it is an act of freedom and courage. The choice you make is yours to make—and no one else’s.

Mary Magdalen

Conversations with Mary Magdalen

At her request, we have adopted the spelling of her name without an “e” at the end in order to denote that this Magdalen is an interdimensional being, and her life as Mary Magdalene was only one expression of her larger identity.

Another reason she asked us to spell her name without an “e” at the end was to differentiate the being we communicate from other sources of channeled material.

We did spell her name in the main menu tab using the traditional spelling in order to facilitate recognition by Internet search engines.

The Return of Isis

You are collectively experiencing the return of Isis. It is happening in this very moment. It is happening through the agency of women coming to their power, and it is being accelerated through the recognition that the Earth is in danger through the acts of mankind and through the recognition that the halls of power are impotent to affect the needed changes.

More and more women will come together to create change in the world, and in their communities more women, especially the younger generation, are finding their voices to speak to the errors they see.

The return of the goddess does not mean she descends from the heavens with a flaming sword. It means that she embodies the hearts and minds of women and that these women find the courage to speak their truth and to take the actions they deem necessary.

Gods/gods

There are vast intelligences that move through the universe and if someone encounters them and they are of lesser evolution, they would think of them as gods.

Evolution

As I view it, this Earth is in the midst of a cataclysmic purification, not through the actions of God, but through the nature of the planet itself and the cosmos. There is little that a single person can do to change it, as the forces are far greater than any individual.

To survive this purification spiritually intact, you must acquire the ability to swim upstream against the current.

The current here is evolutionary implosion, political and spiritual fascism and manipulation through fear by the forces that control human destiny at a large scale. It’s up to each person to find a way to swim upstream, and this requires mastery, intelligence and a high degree of creativity and flexibility.

And it is here where things get interesting. One of the ways, certainly not the only way to swim upstream against the current, is to connect into the vibration of love—meaning impersonal love—and if you are able to be in that vibrational bubble and you are also aware of the realities around you—not deluded to believe that everyone is in that state—then you can more efficiently and more effectively swim upstream and find safe harbor in the midst of this storm.

Couples in Sacred Relationship can greatly reinforce this in each other.

Most couples are the antithesis of Sacred Relationship, and a person would be better off being alone than entering into a relationship with someone who is not his or her equal—spiritually speaking.

Another appropriate metaphor is swimming through water. Water is like the impersonal force of love. It surrounds you, but there are rocks, immovable objects within that stream, and the mastery of swimming is to swim around those things that are not what you are looking for, and to swim around impediments, without a second glance, leaving them behind you.

I believe that the greatest treasures that a human can possess are immaterial—they are not the gold of this world. They are attributes of consciousness that are developed in the foundry of existence.

You take these types of treasures with you when you leave this earthly life, and you take these with you into other realms. When you discover such a great treasure, you would naturally protect it.

I believe that many people lose this treasure in the course of life, and some will re-find it, thus treasuring it even more. So what you are dealing with here is a level of intelligence that can recognize the value of an attribute and the intelligence to know what to do with it, how to use that attribute (i.e., impersonal love) to create a bubble, a vibratory field that allows you to move through the current and move upstream when the current is moving downstream.

Earth is a school for the soul.

This life is temporary but spiritual consciousness is eternal.

And so in the density and suffering of life, it is how you deal with life’s difficulties that determines what attributes you extract. One of the greatest treasures or attributes of consciousness is the capacity to love impersonally, because this creates a vibrational field that inherently moves upstream. In other words the vibrational field itself moves you upward. This is highly efficient.

How you choose to navigate through the difficulties of planetary purification becomes the question. If you can recognize that the true treasure is not material, that you are a visitor to this world and that you will take the treasure of spiritual development with you when you leave this life, then you will pass through this period more easily.

You live in this world fully to gain all the experiences you can, but you live knowing you are not of this world, and if you can live that with the full force of your being you can live through the experience of this life with more mastery and grace.

I think it is best to avoid the dichotomy of good and evil for they are relative to the perceiver. What is evil to one, might be a holy undertaking to someone else.

In the midst of this planetary upheaval, I believe that the path of the Initiate is to live upward despite what might be occurring in the external environment and to find the treasures within. Furthermore, an Initiate must forge the capacity to think and feel on his or her own, and use these abilities as a means to navigate through the conditions and situations of life—never losing sight of those spiritual treasures. That’s the path.

Transformation and Despair

True transformation does not require hope and moves even in despair.

The Delusion of Oneness

All beings have their own perspective, which is relative to the dimension they reside in and the level of their consciousness. From my experience, it is impossible for any one being to comprehend the totality of existence in all its dimensionality.

From my experience and perspective, all beings are interconnected. These interconnections extend in all levels, in all dimensions and throughout the cosmos.

In your planetary existence you are part of and not separate from your planetary eco-system. You are intimately connected to all life forms. You breathe because the plant kingdom transforms carbon dioxide into oxygen, a process you call photosynthesis.

I prefer to call it devic transformation. The devic consciousness of the plant kingdom is vast and intelligent. It is sentient.  By its very nature it transforms one element into another. It is its nature to transform, upon this planet, carbon dioxide into oxygen. And it is this transformation that gives you life. So you are deeply interconnected to the plant kingdom and all other life forms upon this planet.

You are also interconnected with other intelligences and other dimensions. I am able to communicate with you because we are interconnected. This interconnectedness is a vast ocean. There are channels that you call wormholes connecting parts of the cosmos with distant areas. But this interconnectedness is different than what many people call “oneness.”

Because there are so many different ways of using this term, it is not particularly helpful to use this term without being more precise. So let me discuss the truth of “oneness,” as I view it, for it is different from the delusion of “oneness.”

When you reach higher states of consciousness in which your experience of time and space are transcended, there are various levels of perception. One of these levels is the interconnectedness of all life, all consciousnesses and all existence.

When you enter a certain octave of this transcendence to time and space you enter into what Yeshua referred to as “love.” This love is impersonal. It is not romantic in the sense that most people think of it. It is not erotic attraction. It is a resonance that holds all existence in one interrelated vibration, and this vibration is all-inclusive.

This state of consciousness is very strange, for when you are in the vibrational state of impersonal love you can easily hold conflicting opposites together.

They are seemingly resolved in the serenity of this vibration called love. But at the same time there are other perceptions and other realities co-existing with this vibrational state.

My personal difficulty with the concept of “oneness,” as it is used in the New Age, has to do with a lack of boundaries, a lack of accountability and personal responsibility. It is also a nesting place, ironically, for some of the darkest shadow material of humanity.

Those who leap frog into the idea of oneness, enter a tenuous path if they conclude that at a higher level of being we are all one and there is no differentiation. My reason for saying this has to do with the edges of vibrational states.

The idea of  “oneness” is being used as a hypnotic vehicle by some people to sidestep the complexity of existence. Some of these people believe that if we are all one then there is no need to do anything, and, in my belief, this is a sad error.

Personal evolution rarely occurs as a spontaneous event but more often through an application of your heart and mind and at times through sheer effort and personal will. Another aspect of oneness that disturbs me is that some, though not all, use it as a pretext for irresponsibility and unaccountability.

When one enters the authentic experience of interconnectedness the heart can expand to include all levels of existence, and one can indeed experience an emotion of profound love that embraces all opposites, and one might describe this feeling as “oneness.” But this is quite different than the idea of “oneness.” The idea of oneness is not an authentic spiritual experience. It is just an idea. But it is an idea that is fraught with difficulties for those seeking true authentic spiritual realization.

I said earlier one of the difficulties with oneness was that it disregarded vibrational edges.

What I mean by this is that every vibrational state has a boundary. In certain states of consciousness all boundaries are transcended, but one cannot operate in the manifest universe without boundaries.

The experience of no boundaries is a state of mind, but it is not useful as a means to navigate through vibrational states effectively. You must pay attention to vibrational boundaries or you very easily create energetic problems.

Let me give a concrete example. Many years after Yeshua’s death there was a man who sought out and destroyed those early followers of Yeshua. His name was Paul. On his way to Damascus, as the story goes, he had a sudden vision of Yeshua and had a conversion, and suddenly this man who was a vile, despicable human being seemed to be lifted up and transformed.

You know him as St. Paul.

One of the difficulties I have with Paul, as a woman, is that he hated our kind. And so he inserted his bias against women into the formation of the Church through his evangelism and writings.

As a woman Initiate and a close disciple of Yeshua—as well as his teacher and his wife—I find his (Paul’s) influence on the Church most unfortunate. The problem with Paul—and I refuse to call him a Saint—is that he had a partial conversion, but his unresolved issues with women tainted his spiritual experience. And it became a vile poison that he added to the mix of early influences to those followers of Yeshua.

When Paul encountered his vision of Yeshua, he saw the error of his ways to some extent. But he did not look deeper in himself; he did not notice the vibrational edge, or boundary, within his own nature that was driven by his fear and hatred of women.

This was a vibrational edge, and he overlooked it. He did not enter into it, explore it or change it, and so, filled with energy that comes to any human who makes contact with the spiritual dimension, he set forth into the world, now a converter, an evangelist. But he was not proclaiming the full truth of Yeshua’s message. It was twisted by his inner and tormented world.

It is indeed a paradox that an idea as seemingly benevolent as “oneness” can sometimes be used as a cloak to hide human darkness and what you would call the shadow. From my personal view the idea that all beings are “one” without any differences is preposterous and an insult to the complexity of multi-dimensional existence.

I am aware that I am interconnected with all beings, and I am also aware, at the same time, that I am distinctly me.

In the path to self-realization and mastery there are many ways, many paths and many choices. Neither is better than the other. It is simply that each choice brings with it consequences.

I choose to remain a distinct individual consciousness. I choose at times to intercede on the behalf of other beings, but I am always aware that they have a distinct existence separate from me, and that their sovereign existence is their responsibility and not mine.

From my view, at the moment of death there are many options and many ways to transit through the death realms. One of these is moving to the light, as proposed by numerous proponents of oneness. I personally consider this type of collective light to be a trap. It ensnares a soul or a consciousness. It does not lead to liberation or greater mastery but to a type of subjugation.

I find there to be something insidious in the concept of oneness as held by some people. By imagining that we are all one, they are able to enter a hypnotic state. This type of hypnosis imparts a pseudo-serenity because one can seemingly operate without attention to boundaries. But just because one has an idea of something does not make it so. I find that many persons who have swallowed the concept of oneness do not look deeper into themselves. They remain ignorant to their own unconscious forces.

And so while one hand holds a magic wand, so to speak, and creates the pseudo-feelings of oneness, the other hand creates discord and acts out the shadow, which is quite simply un-owned aspects and un-evolved impulses. But because this “second hand” is not in their awareness they take no responsibility for their actions.

This is not evolution in my mind but devolution, and so this leads me to wonder how such a situation has arisen and why.

When my beloved Yeshua said, “You shall do greater things than I, “ he was speaking from an understanding regarding the individualized divine person, a being who understood his or her relationship to the cosmos as a distinct individual, not merged with all beings as one.

It is true that some of the power available to a divine person arises from the recognition of his or her interconnectedness with the cosmos. But this sense of interconnectedness retains identity as an individual. Indeed this type of mastery requires an individualized being. This type of mastery requires that a being operate within the vast sea of interconnectedness while being aware of vibrational boundaries as well as how to move in relationship to them.

Let me say a little more about boundaries.

This is a true paradox because they co-exist at the same time. Let’s start with the physical since you relate every day to this.

Every cell of your body has a boundary, a physical wall of molecules that separates itself from every other cell. Without this boundary the cells could not exist. But the boundary has openings that allow the cell to take in things that are good for it and to eject things that are not in its best interest or no longer needed, the byproducts if you will, of cellular metabolism—like carbon dioxide.

When you take all of these cells that comprise your body, your body has the physical experience of boundaries. If you walk into a wall, the boundary of your body and the boundary of the wall meet, and you will not pass through the wall. This is a physical reality.

Now all matter is essentially space, so it is possible in certain states of body/mind to walk through wall, to physically walk through it. This fluidity of body and mind is a highly unusual state, but it is possible, and many of your yogis and yoginis as well as some saints from many spiritual traditions have demonstrated this and other abilities as well.

It is possible for your body/mind to enter a super conductive state in which gravity is temporarily transcended and levitation becomes a distinct possibility. But most of the time, most people remain at the affect of gravity.

The idea that you can walk through walls or levitate is very different than the actual ability to walk through walls or levitate. The energetic mastery required to physically walk through a wall or to levitate is not in the domain of thinking. It’s a much more complex phenomenon.

Each vibrational level or dimension has boundaries. It is possible in certain states to pass through these boundaries, but it is done by understanding the nature of the boundary that is presenting itself to you and what is required of you to pass through it.

It is through interconnectedness that you can travel through the cosmos through any dimension that you wish. But you have to understand the nature of each boundary that you encounter and what is energetically required of you to pass through it. This is a very different concept than oneness.

One does not move throughout the cosmos with mastery if one is blobbed together in one’s mind with all other beings. This concept is very limiting, in contrast to the potentials of interconnectedness.

So, in summary, exploring ones’ interconnectedness with the cosmos as an individualized being leads you to greater mastery and an ability to move through dimensional boundaries. The idea of oneness does not impart this level of mastery, but in my mind it is a hornet’s nest of confusion and a place where manipulation and untransformed shadows often reside.

Worthlessness

Planetary energetics are like a plow that ruthlessly passes through the soil of the psyche and all manner of things come to the surface that were hidden—your deep-seated roots of worthlessness, in particular.

It is a hard flinty rock, this worthlessness, that the plow is turning up.

My Take on Chaos

Let’s use the Labadous Valley in Southern France as an example. When some off-planet beings scan this valley they see fountains of light, which they can measure and quantify. They are aware of their intergalactic brothers, like the Arcturians, and like the Arcturians they view earth life from a somewhat detached place because they are in the 5th Dimensions and higher and have never actually been here in the physical.

I, however, have been here so I know the taste and the smell and the touch of matter. So when I am in this valley my tendency is to see all these beings not as fountains of light, but as friends whom I have relationships with, which is why I can call forth the elements. I could call forth the angels. So I could, for instance, sit down, with an angel in this valley and this angel might be very agitated because of the disturbances that it is experiencing in the Earth and in humanity. And I might have a conversation with this angel.

Other off-planet beings would do an energy reading and say that chaos is increasing in this area where the angel is located. So both perspectives are accurate. It’s simply that one is more detached and the other is more involved.

All the kingdoms of your Earth, including all of the devic kingdoms, the elemental kingdoms and the angels of air, water, earth and fire, as well as the mysterious angel of space, are all being activated, stimulated and irritated by the cosmic waves of energy that are passing through your solar system. Just as humans are being affected, all of Earth’s kingdoms are being affected. Everything is stirred up.

Many beings from off-planet are monitoring energy, from the 5th Dimension and higher. I was of the Earth (in one life), so I understand the relationship with beings who reside here, but we’re describing the same thing, just from different perspectives.

There are pockets of individuals who enter highly agitated states, and this will act out in all realms of elements, the air, fire, definitely the Earth. It will become very surrealistic. Eventually it will be impossible to deny the fact that there is a relationship between human consciousness and what is occurring on the planet except to the most dense of individuals.

Angels

The sole purpose of most Angels is to be of benefit. They have no interest to do anything other than express a positive intent as they understand it. Within that range of beings there are Angels that have free will, but they choose to be in alignment with the higher vision that they hold. It is a part of their purpose. Some Angels have no free will of their own, but are bound to the intent set by their progenitor. Some angels are simple energetic messengers…servants, so to speak, to whatever it is that expressed them into existence.

Now, we are not talking about God here…we are speaking about actual subatomic forces. You can look at this totally within the realm of physics. Subatomic particles are, from at least one perspective, Angels. They do not have will, as you understand it, but can sometimes bond with other subatomic particles to create an intention. Some of this is random and some is quite specific having to do with consciousness—your consciousness.

What allows you to make sense of my words are molecular messengers with your brain called neurotransmitters. These molecules are constellations of subatomic and atomic particles.

Depending upon the nature of their work, atomic and molecular messengers (Angels) operate in the realm of physiology to keep you alive and/or they operate within in the realm of cognition, allowing you to create meaning from the world. They do not have a will of their own but are bound to and completely aligned with your will.

You have a direct affect upon the subatomic, atomic and molecular messengers (Angels) within your body through the thoughts you think and the emotions you feel. Since these types of Angels are bound to your will, they will obey your intentions regarding your physical body to a remarkable degree.

Next there are the higher order of Angels, meaning Angels having to do with larger systems than your body—meaning their sphere of influence, i.e., how big a territory they have influence over.

For instance, the Angels in your body could not take on galactic levels of energy. This would be far beyond their capability.

Another category of Angels has to do with the devic kingdom. When a flower blossoms, it sends out Angelic messengers that you call aromas, and they draw in the insects and bees that will fertilize it and spread genetic information. But it’s in the nature of the flower to send forward these Angelic messengers just as it’s in the nature of the universe to emanate energies that I call Angels. Some of these energies are conscious and have free will, and some are conscious and do not have free will. Some of them have little consciousness at all; they are simply messengers.

Iron, Blood and Earth’s Magnetic Field

What is the element that creates the magnetic field of Earth? Iron.

What is the primary element that comprises Earth’s core and responsible for Earth’s magnetic field? Iron.

Iron is also an important component of blood so there is a resonant field of information between human blood and the Earth’s core.

In regard to the relationship between human blood and Earth’s magnetic field, the reptilians that fed off of fear also knew and understood, early on, that sacrificing and the blood letting of humans created both fear and an energetic that allowed them to affect the magnetic field of Earth, using the relationship between blood and Earth’s core to energize their intentions. Some did this ritual in order to keep things in place so that they could remain in power as the Aztecs did in Mesoamerica.

On Working With Other People

I inspire many other people to return to the balance of the feminine, and so many are working with aspects of me. Some of them are deluded, and some of them are actually working with aspects of me.

The Nature of My Teachings

After Yeshua’s passing from this world, I taught and did healing through the laying on of hands, and I spoke about Yeshua’s teachings that the true divine mystery was love, and I spoke about the concept of a mother /father god.

Then there were certain women of high caliber who I initiated into the Sex Magic of Isis, and I gave them instructions in how to use their life force to heal and to elevate themselves.

I also gave to these groups of women my knowledge concerning the use of herbs for healing. And it was to this group that I gave instruction on the use of essential oils to alter consciousness in order to enter receptive states of consciousness whereby they were able to experience the spiritual worlds directly for themselves.

Many of these women started their own teaching groups and the knowledge of herbs and essential oils for healing and self-elevation quickly spread.

When the patriarchal Church had reached its zenith in the Middle Ages, women who possessed this knowledge were labeled as witches and many were burned at the stake or killed with elaborate brutality. Ironically, this frontal attack against women, who merely possessed the knowledge of healing and self-transcendence, was committed in the name of the Holy Mother Church.

This strange schism can be stated quite simply as a battle between the Mother Church, a supposed symbol of pure virtue, killing women who were perceived as defiled and evil. The irony here is that men ruled the Mother Church and dictated “her” actions.

For me, another layer to this bitter irony is that by the early Middle Ages the Holy Mother Church (meaning the Church of Rome) had been fully appropriated by men who traced their apostolic authority in an unbroken Papal line back to Peter who was, in my experience, a misogynist. And to this day, the Church is a woman hater and places women in a subservient position. But then this is not the only religion to have condemned women to a lesser state of perceived value.

In my opinion, the removal of Sophia from the godhead as the Bride of God (i.e., the Logos) has had, and continues to have, devastating consequences upon all Christendom and the world at large.

But let us leave the fetid history of the Church to further discuss the essence of my teachings.

There were smaller groups of students to which I revealed the inner teachings of Yeshua, as he gave them to me. I would take these individuals through an initiatory process with the elements. And I only accepted them into the inner teachings when I recognized that they comprehended what I was saying about the nature of the mother/father god.

Ultimately to these advanced students I revealed the central heresy, at least according to the Church Fathers, that all persons were the living mother/father god, and that there was nothing separating them from this numinous reality—except belief.

The process of getting them to this realization involved many stages, including instruction in how to interact with the elements of earth, fire, water, and air.

The first stage was to take them into a unified state of consciousness, which they entered when I took them out to remote locations and instructed them in methods to attain a state of mind whereby they realized that they and the land and all the elements were one. When they attained this state of oneness with the natural world, I would guide them into a realization that they were also unified with the mother/father god and that there was no difference between them and the Mystery.

Once this unified state of consciousness was attained with the mother/father god, they could use their powers of consciousness in their life as creators. That was the core of the teaching.

I taught men the unified state of consciousness and ways to connect with the mother/father god, but I did not teach them the Sex Magic of Isis. I let their wives teach them that.

When the sun and moon are in balance and the male and female are joined as one, a third force appears that has tremendous potency, and this power can change the world.

From Isis On the Tomb of the Feminine

The tomb of the feminine—and by that I mean the thought forms and beliefs of the last 2000 years that have imprisoned womanhood—is in its essence the feeling that women have no right to ask for anything, that they are servants to men and nothing more. The torment of being in that darkness, knowing the power you possess and not given permission to bring it forward into this world is truly a type of hell.

From Yeshua: God I Am and God You Are (“I got it one night, alone in the Garden”)

This world is a world of extreme polarity and the best intentions and most impeccable acts can be convoluted into something quite different than their original intent.

This is one of the tragedies of this world.

When I said that without my Father I could do nothing, I actually said “without my Mother and Father I could do nothing.” But my exact words were lost in translation.

Every action that I take comes from the “I Am That I Am,” in other words, me, as God.

But in my lesser understanding, during my time on Earth, I was separated from that in my mind. I was separated from myself as the realized manifestation of God, and there was thus the ground for personal doubt.

When I am in awareness of myself as God, there is no doubt. I am now in that state perpetually in all realms, and I have no doubt.

There are two levels here. Without awareness of myself as God I can do nothing. If I am in a lesser position of realization than I am now, I would think that this power is external to me, and then I call upon it as if it were a power outside of me. My realization was simply recognizing that I was the God of my own being, and this jump from human to god/man was a quantum jump.

God is a mental construct that is too limiting.

The fundamental question is this—do you worship some power external to yourself or do you take full embodiment of it?

When I took on the disciples, I grew through the experience of dealing with their limitations, and when I was in the Garden of Gethsemane, and they all fell asleep, I was truly alone.

In that moment of solitary awareness I no longer cared what any of them thought, and that was the pivotal moment for me. I stepped though doubt and walked through the portal without a second glance—realizing that I had created it all. I created drawing them into my life as both steppingstones and impediments.

I thought that the truth could be spread through them to the world, but it was a contaminated truth, tainted by their own human limitations as well as misunderstandings, and in Peter’s case, stupidity.

Let me explain my comment about Peter. The Gospels report that I said to Peter that he was the rock upon which I would build my Church. But the language I spoke to him in was Aramaic, and the word rock had two connotations—a firm foundation and intellectually dense.

So in the garden I stepped past all of that which I had created and let it go. I stepped through the portal of death.

I am a vast being with multiple facets, and the human was only one small part of who I am—as are you.

The Alchemy of Relationship

by Tom Kenyon

This article was taken from the Magdalen Manuscript (ORB Communications).

Many of us do relationships the way we play poker. We do everything possible to get the upper hand. And if that fails, we bluff. We pretend to hold cards we don’t have. We cheat. We lie.

And while this is the model for many a relationship in our post modern era, it is not the model for Sacred Relationship as described in the Manuscript.

Let me be very up front here. Sacred Relationship is not for everyone. In fact, I suspect that there are far fewer persons capable or even willing to undertake it than there are those who prefer to play emotional card games.

This type of relationship demands utmost honesty both with oneself and with one’s partner. Instead of hiding our cards, we lay them all out on the table. All our hopes, all our fears, all our petty and jealous thoughts, all our conniving: all of it gets laid out in the clear light of awareness for our partner to see. And he or she must do the same. It will not work if there are back doors unlocked with mental escape in mind. It will not work if both partners are not absolutely impeccably honest with each other.

And the reason for this radical type of honesty is that without it, the Alchemy of Relationship cannot take place. Now this may be a new term to many, even students of internal alchemy, since the dynamics of intimate relationship are rarely discussed in the four major alchemical streams (Egyptian, Taoist, Yoga Tantra and Buddhist Tantra).

So I think it might be good to define what I mean here, and to lay some type of foundation. Like all types of alchemy, this type of work is about changing one form into another. The form, in this case, is the inter-dynamics that have become habituated between two people. After a while, people tend to get into ruts. The liveliness that existed at the beginning of the relationship begins to fade. Both people become more or less unconscious. The harsh reality is that it takes continual vigilance and effort to keep a relationship conscious and alive.

Many relationships drop by the wayside because the partners are either unwilling or unable to make the efforts required to sustain them. Instead of experiencing the newness of each moment within the relationship, a kind of dullness seeps in over time; what used to be exciting is now boring. And worse, a kind of psychological and emotional lethargy sets in, and both partners succumb to the dulling effects of unconsciousness.

This type of unconsciousness is a death knell to psychological awareness and insight; and although it is rarely mentioned, this type of unconsciousness has a negative effect on one’s spiritual life as well.

So the form that needs to be changed within a relationship is literally the form of interactions that habitually take place between the two partners.

Like all types of alchemy, there must be a container for the reactions to occur. And in this case, it is the container of safety and appreciation that provides the reservoir for transformation.

If there is a lack of safety or appreciation, this type of alchemy cannot be undertaken. And if you have decided you wish to try this type of alchemy in your relationship, I suggest you do an analysis first. Honestly assess if you feel safety and appreciation in your relationship. If you don’t, you will be wasting your time trying to undertake this type of alchemy with your current partner. I suggest you focus your efforts, instead, on the solitary practices mentioned in the Manuscript. If you still want to give it a try, get your partner to talk about these feelings of danger and lack of appreciation that you are feeling. Only if and when they get resolved, should you consider taking on this type of alchemy.

So now we have two of the three elements needed for alchemy: something to be transformed (the habitual patterns of interaction) and the container (the safety net, if you will, of the relationship itself). A third element is needed; and that is, of course, energy to drive the reaction. There is usually plenty of energy in relationships in the form of neurotic patterns, hopes, fears, and desires. We’ll get to those in a moment, but for now I want to talk about steel.

Our psychological selves are much like swords made from steel alloys. They have been forged in the hot searing foundry of our childhood, in the formative pressures of our early experiences. It is this early period of life that bonds the elements of our psyches together. And like steel, this was done under immense heat and pressure. Some of us were abused by overbearing or downright hostile or even destructive parents. Some of us were left to our own devices without any kind of support or guidance. And every kind of parental/child relationship falls in between these two polarities. The possibilities of childhood pressures are virtually endless, and so too are the psychological alloys that result from these types of experiences.

There is a lot of talk about the child within in many personal growth groups, and while there is certainly value in making contact with this younger self, it is not always pretty. Our cultural myth is that childhood is a time of innocence, a time in which everything is right with the world. For some children this is true; for many it is definitely not.

I remember being at a fellow therapist’s house for a party quite a few years ago. Most of the adults were practicing therapists, psychologists or psychiatrists. I had plopped myself in a big oversized sofa, and, sipping my Pepsi, I noticed a remarkable event. One of the therapists had brought his son and his son’s best friend to the party. It was clear that the two boys were buds. They were playing some kind of card game and respectfully giving each other a turn. There were no attempts at cheating, and they seemed to be in a bubble of camaraderie.

Then the boy’s father came into the room and asked both kids if they needed anything. They both looked up with cherub faces and smiled. No they said, in the cutest little boy voices. The father patted his son on the back, and as he walked off, he nonchalantly patted his son’s friend on the back as well. For a moment, his son looked at the incident in abject horror. You could see that he could not believe his eyes. And then as his father turned the corner into the other room, his son pulled back and hit his best friend in the face!

This was not childhood innocence. This was childhood rage. He was not willing to share affections from his father, not even with his best friend. This type of jealousy is typical of higher mammals, and we are, for all our self-righteous self-congratulatory delusions, still mammals. No matter how high we get spiritually, we will, for as long as we live, share traits with our mammalian brothers and sisters.

The inner life of a child is often far different than those around him or her imagine it to be. Surrounded by both dangers and opportunities, the psychological life of a child is directly shaped by how he or she chooses to deal with them. Whether it is something as life threatening as a deranged parent or a child molester, or seemingly innocuous as whom to go to the prom with, does not in some ways matter. While the impact of fighting for one’s life may very well imprint a child’s behavior well into adulthood, the little decisions of life, like who to socialize with or not, also have impact. All these major and minor decisions create internal psychological heat and pressure. The alloys of one’s personality get bonded together or burned away. The sword has been tempered by the time we reach adulthood, and the alloy of our personalities has been set.

Some of us emerge from this childhood foundry with rock hard edges; others of us are blunt. Some of us hold our edges, and some of us can never seem to hold anything.

The thing about steel is that it tends to remain in its original form once it leaves the foundry. And one of the few things that can ever re-configure the alloy is if the steel gets as hot as it did when it was first formed.

In the alchemical work of Sacred Relationship, we voluntarily put ourselves back in the foundry. The heat that arises between two people when their neuroses rub against each other can get quite intense. If both people can find the courage to be radically honest with themselves and with each other in these searing moments, the psychological alloys can be altered. A new type of aliveness then enters the relationship fueled by the energy of psychological truth.

The thing is–most of us will do almost anything to avoid psychological heat. When we get uncomfortable, many of us get the hell out of Dodge. Now for some of us this means literally packing up and getting out of town, or at least out of sight. For some of us it means that we are physically present, but no longer emotionally present. We numb up. We become automatons. We move and talk, almost like normal, but we have retreated far, far inside. Others of us numb ourselves with alcohol or drugs. And some of us do it with television. We humans are, after all, quite clever and creative. We can find all sorts of ways to avoid facing ourselves. In fact, they are far too numerous for me to list here. But I suspect you get the idea. I guess the real question here is this–what do you do when things get psychologically too hot for your taste? What do you do when you are on the verge of feeling something that you don’t want to feel?

For those in Sacred Relationship such feelings are a call to presence. It is a time to be radically honest, and for both partners to express their true feelings no matter how embarrassing or scary they might be. By speaking their truths to each other, an enlivening element enters the dynamic. Psychological honesty results in psychological insight. And with insight there is hope for awareness, and with awareness there can be change.

This chapter is hardly a manual for the Alchemy of Relationship. It’s mainly, I think, a warning. Magdalen alluded to this in the Manuscript. She called it obscurations to flight. That sounds wonderfully exotic doesn’t it? Well, it isn’t very exotic when the obscuration is clearly in your face. And it isn’t very exotic feeling when the foundry of the relationship gets so hot that you feel you are dissolving (psychologically that is). It takes courage and fortitude to stay in the foundry when the heat begins to weaken the stability of one’s self-perceived image. Few of us care to look foolish, scared, petty or jealous. And we will often go through elaborate means to hide these feelings from ourselves or others.

But in Sacred Relationship these things invariably float to the surface like mud that has been stirred up from the bottom of a barrel. The thing is to realize that this does not mean you are doing it (Sacred Relationship) wrong; it means that you are probably doing it right. As Magdalen said in the Manuscript, the power of the alchemy extrudes, or pushes out, the dross. This can be fascinating when the dross is being pushed out of your partner, but it is truly horrific when it extrudes out of you.

What makes Sacred Relationship sacred is that it is truly a holy way of being. The root of the word holy actually means to make whole. So… when we do something that creates wholeness (in this case psychological wholeness), we are engaged in a sacred or holy act.

In the crucible of mutual safety, honesty and appreciation, it is possible to forge a new kind of self. This new self is psychologically more honest, more aware and freer than its counterpart before entering the foundry of relationship. And like the phoenix that arises from its own ashes, this self has wings. It can fly places that it could only imagine before.

There are mysteries here, and treasures that await those who have the courage to enter the depths of themselves and their partners. It is not, as I said, for everyone. You will probably know if you are a likely candidate because you will feel it in your soul, your heart.

If you enter this path, know that there are no manuals. There is precious little guidance out there. The path to spirituality has traditionally been one of solitude. And while times of solitude may be necessary for those in Sacred Relationship, something has turned. They agree to walk the path to godhood together, side by side, through both heaven and hell, through the brilliant summits where all things are suddenly crystal clear, and through the dark valley of psychological death where it is hard to even see one’s foot in front of the other. And yet through the darkness of not knowing, a deep primordial force begins to rise up. It requires an unusual type of holy trinity – three things for it to do its most holy task- mutual safety, psychological honesty and appreciation of the Beloved.

Have a good journey!

The Aethos: Thoughts and Observations by Tom Kenyon

The Aethos: Thoughts and Observations

by Tom Kenyon

My first encounter with the Aethos occurred in 2011 during one of my periodic existential funks. After a few hours of self-indulgence in melancholia, one of my Hathor mentors escorted me through the realms of light to the tenth dimension where he instructed me to just “sit” with the Aethos.

I was immediately calmed and soon entered what I recognized to be a type of Samadhi (yogic trance) in which I began to sink deeper and deeper into a non-dual state of consciousness.

The agitation that had so clearly commandeered my mind for several hours suddenly dissipated in a matter of several minutes. And this—no small a feat—had transpired just by me being in the presence of the Aethos.

The idea of non-duality shows up in various perennial philosophies, some of which can be traced back to the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita of ancient India—the non-dual teachings of various mystics and sages as well as the essential teachings of Buddhism, to name but a few.

The Aethos I “sat” with was, as I said earlier, a tenth-dimensional Hathor, and whenever I sense this being clairvoyantly, I clearly see “it” as a ball of light comprised of thirteen counter-rotating spheres embedded within each other. My sense is that the ratios established by these counter-rotating spheres combine to create a non-dual energetic, which is what affected me so strongly.

I refer to this being as “it” because it has no sign of gender. Whereas the Hathors I have encountered in the 4th through the 9th dimensions have both a light body that has a gendered anthropomorphic form as well as a geometric configuration of light, the Hathors I have encountered in the 10th, 11th and 12th dimensions present themselves solely as geometric light forms. In other words, they have no body, per se.

The Aethos Sound Meditation

When I recorded The Aethos Sound Meditation, it was this tenth-dimensional Hathor who guided me through the entire process. From an engineering standpoint, it was a fascinating experience.

As I recorded each of the eight tracks that comprise the recording, this being would alter my voice in distinct ways and in distinct ratios to previously recorded sounds. After laying down the foundation tracks I simply layered and looped them, according to “its” guidance, in order to approximate the light fluctuations that comprised “its” being. There was no electronic manipulation of the sound—meaning that I did not alter the EQ in any way, nor was any reverb or other effect applied to my voice. The sounds you hear in The Aethos Sound Meditation are completely natural and devoid of any effect, as hard as it may be to comprehend after listening to it.

Note:  A link to this sound meditation appears at the end of this article.

Two Years Later

As I write this, it has been about two years since my first encounter with the Aethos, and I have interacted with this being and with the Aethos Sound Meditation in multiple situations during this period.

I will be addressing some of what I have discovered about this unique sound meditation in the hopes that my observations will benefit those who wish to explore the territory of consciousness that this catalytic sound piece opens.

But before I discuss some of my findings, let’s turn our attention to the original Hathor message of September 20, 2012.

You can find the complete Hathor message (titled The Aethos and Non-Dual States of Consciousness), in the Hathor section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com). What follows below is an excerpt from the original message.

EXCERPT FROM HATHOR MESSAGE OF SEPTEMBER 20, 2012

Mind and Consciousness

“For us, consciousness is transcendent to all phenomena and is not bound by neurological activity in your nervous system.

Furthermore, consciousness is transcendent to both time and space, as you perceive them. And it is through the vehicle of your consciousness that you can travel through energetic vortices that lead outside the constraints of embodied existence.

Mind, as we use the term, refers to the sensory, mental and emotional experiences you have as a result of distinct changes in your nervous system. Indeed, as you read these words, you are creating their meaning through the agency of your physical brain and nervous system.

You are creating the meaning of our words through the window of your mind, but this window is both created and constrained by the limitations of your nervous system.

Our messages are linguistically coded, and at various locations in the syntax (order) of our communications there are vortices—wormholes—through which you can temporarily transcend your mind and enter into the infinite mystery of consciousness.

How We View Higher Dimensions

In our experience of ourselves, we exist within multiple dimensions of consciousness, and depending upon our level of personal evolution we manifest in the fourth through the twelfth dimensions. Through the ninth dimension we can alternate between our anthropomorphic form, which is humanlike in appearance, or our pure light body.

As we shift into the tenth-dimension all connections to our anthropomorphic form dissolve. We become, for all intents and purposes, geometric light forms.

As we progress in our own personal evolution we can express ourselves through the 10th, 11th and 12th dimensions in a multitude of ways.

Each progression upward in consciousness brings with it a greater understanding of the interconnectedness of all beings and all aspects of the cosmos. The odd paradox of existence becomes clearly apparent as we enter into the tenth-dimension.

Interconnectedness and Non-duality

We are sharing this information because something similar occurs for you as you transit into the higher dimensions of your own being. In the tenth through the twelfth Dimensions, awareness of interconnectedness expands, as does an awareness of non-duality—the Mother of All Things.

This is, indeed, the paradox of consciousness we mentioned earlier, and it is one that has been addressed by some of your perennial philosophies.

For us, the attainment of non-duality is not the final destination but rather a cantilever to greater mastery and an understanding of how to create benevolent outcomes.

How We View Non-duality

In a non-dual state of consciousness we, like you, experience a disappearance of opposition. In non-dual states of consciousness, duality—as it is experienced in relative existence—disappears, and we enter into a great sense of centered awareness and serenity.

In the deepest states of non-duality there is only pure consciousness experiencing itself.

It is important to realize that non-dual states of consciousness are relative to the perceiver. Thus, if you experience non-duality through your heart chakra, you may very well experience impersonal love—a deep sense of cosmic connection.

Indeed, in this state of union between non-duality and the heart, you become infatuated with and fall in love with the cosmos. And in that paradox of the heart, you become the Beloved, and everything you see and witness is the Beloved as well.

While this is a beautiful state of consciousness, it is not pure non-duality.

As you move upward into the higher chakras, experiences of non-duality change.

When you reside in the crown chakra, non-duality is experienced in its pure form—pure consciousness aware of itself. There is no sense of a personal self in these higher dimensions of non-duality.

The paradox of creation is that it unfolds from the purest states of non-duality into the most polarized states of existence. Thus, in your consciousness are the two seemingly conflicting states of relative existence (i.e., your embodied life in time and space) and non-dual states of consciousness in which all polarities and conflicts disappear.

Our perspective, as mentioned earlier, is that non-dual states of consciousness are cantilevers to greater mastery of creation and not the end point or the goal of evolution.

Interconnectedness vs. Oneness

It is here we feel it necessary to discuss an important distinction between interconnectedness and the concept of “oneness.” We do not view these two terms interchangeably. There are many different definitions of “oneness” upon the Earth, and so it is not possible to address all the subtleties and distinctions.

We will instead turn our attention to what we consider to be the fundamental distinction. Some persons believe interconnectedness is the same as “oneness” and that as you enter higher states of consciousness and higher dimensions of being, you merge into a blob of light in which all distinctions disappear. This is not our view.

Interconnection or interconnectedness is the recognition that all beings and all aspects of the cosmos are interrelated and at the same time beings have unique differences. These differences are fascinating and unique.

Sometimes they are annoying, and sometimes they are enriching. But these differences are part of the tapestry of manifest reality, and they are not superfluous.

One of the difficulties we see with the concept of “oneness,” as currently propagated by some persons in the New Age and Personal Growth communities, is that the unique differences between people are denigrated, and somehow because everything is “one,” appropriate energetic boundaries between individuals can be, and often are, disregarded.

Furthermore, some individuals use this belief system (i.e., “Oneness”) as an excuse to avoid personal accountability and responsibility. In our experience of ourselves through all dimensions we remain unique individuals, and the higher dimensions of our being do not obliterate our uniqueness but rather present greater opportunities for creation.

The Aethos

We now wish to share with you a means to access one of our greatest cultural treasures, what we call the Aethos (pronounced, AH-EE-THOS).

The Aethos is a bandwidth of consciousness anchored in pure non-duality.

When a Hathor enters into the tenth dimension there are many opportunities and ways of manifesting.

Some of us choose temporarily to join a community of vibration. This community consists of individual Hathors in the tenth, eleventh, twelfth dimensions. These individuals enter into non-duality by their own volition and choose to remain, for a period of time, in this vibration of consciousness for the benefit of other beings.

Most individuals remain temporarily in the Aethos, while a few show no signs of leaving. When a being enters into the Aethos all personal distinctions are set aside. A being that is in the Aethos has no name. All personal identity has been replaced by total immersion into non-duality. These beings “hold” this vibration of non-duality for the benefit of others because non-duality is the Mother of All Things and the underlying fabric of all existence.

To be in the presence of an Aethos is to be raised upward into non-duality.

Your experience of being with an Aethos will differ from another’s experience based upon your own level of evolution and the issues in duality that you are facing.

But regardless of how complex or difficult your personal issues may be, being in the presence of an Aethos will elevate you, and that is why we are sharing this information at this time.

For some of you who are highly advanced, simply hearing the name Aethos and understanding its non-dual nature will be enough for you to move into communion with non-duality through this means.

Many people, however, would find such a path or method intrinsically difficult. And so we are offering a sound treasure to assist you.

This Sound Meditation is an analog of the light realms where the Aethos resides.

The Aethos emits vibrations of light and these vibrations can be stepped down into the audible range of human hearing. Thus, what you will be hearing, when you listen to The Aethos Sound Meditation, is a translation of light into sound. It is the harmonic essence of the Aethos as it manifests in the tenth dimension.

We suggest you experiment with listening to this unique sound treasure in various ways. The first way would be to listen to it with your full attention on the sound. Allow the sound to be the primary focus of your attention, and when your mind wanders bring it back to the sound.

The second way to listen would be with your focus of attention on your heart chakra in the center of your chest.

Then listen to it with awareness in your throat chakra.

Next, listen to it with your focus of attention in your Third Eye (Ajna), located between your eyes at the bridge of your nose.

And then, finally, listen to the Aethos Sound Meditation with your attention in your crown chakra at the top of your head.

Feel and sense the differences that arise when you listen to the Aethos Sound Meditation from these various chakras. Most of you will find that it feels more natural to listen to the Aethos Sound Meditation with your focus of attention in one of your chakras.

It is with pleasure and great expectation that we present to you the Aethos Sound Meditation. We trust that it will bring you a sense of serenity and a greater capacity to deal with the chaotic events of your world.

It is also our expectation that the Aethos will open a path to your own non-duality, and that, as a manifest creator-being, you will bring the two together—the uniqueness of your life and the power of non-duality.

May this union be a boon to you and to all your relations.”

The Hathors

MORE THOUGHTS AND OBSERVATIONS

First of all, I think a bit of caution is in order for those who choose to work with the Aethos Sound Meditation. And this caution is a bit paradoxical.

While the sound meditation is an expression of non-dual consciousness, which will lead you into a direct experience of non-duality and serenity… listening to the sound piece can sometimes produce varying degrees of psycho-spiritual detoxification depending upon how much “stuff” you are dealing with and how often you listen to the sound meditation.

After releasing the Aethos Sound Meditation via a Hathor Planetary Message, we received hundreds of emails from all over the world. People were sharing, and continue to share, their experiences with this enigmatic sound piece.

Many people report that the Aethos Sound Meditation is deeply calming and emotionally nourishing.

Some report that the sound meditation takes them into profound states of non-duality where the conflicts in their lives are momentarily suspended. These persons also report that while listening to the Aethos, they enter into very expanded states of awareness and transcend their usual perceptions of time, space and location.

From the standpoint of transpersonal psychology, I would say that these individuals experienced non-localized consciousness.

By non-localized, I am referring to an aspect of consciousness that is not bound or limited by the sensory input of their nervous systems. What do I mean by this?

In our everyday life, our nervous systems receive a constant input of information via our five senses. This input is critical to our biological survival and to our successful navigation of the physical world we live in.

This is localized awareness, and without it we would not survive very long in this world.

There is however, seemingly, another aspect of consciousness that is not bound by time and space or by the constraints of our sensory nervous system. This non-localized aspect of consciousness has been described by many mystical and religious traditions since time immemorial. Indeed the existence of non-localized consciousness is a corner stone of many perennial philosophies.

Toward the end of this article, I will briefly address some of the scientific conundrums that surround the idea of non-localized awareness. But for the sake of further discussion let us say that such a state of consciousness (transcendent to our everyday perceptions of time, space and location) does, in fact, actually exist.

While many people who listen to the Aethos Sound Meditation report experiencing this transcendent state of awareness and its associated emotions of peace, serenity and deep wellness, some report disturbing emotional material (i.e., anger, sadness, agitation, etc.) coming to the surface of awareness.

This seems odd given that non-dual states of consciousness are, by their very nature, calming and serene. What’s happening here?

Vibrational States of Mind

In my opinion, the Aethos Sound Meditation resides in a very high vibratory state. In this instance I am not talking about “pitch” (as in physics), but rather a type of mental/emotional awareness I call a psycho-spiritual state. By the term psycho-spiritual state, I mean an altered state of awareness that might have been triggered by such things as meditation, contemplative prayer, high ritual, mind altering sound and music, psychoactive substances, or even a life-altering event that temporarily suspends one’s normal sense of reality and connects the individual to the numinous or transcendent (i.e., non-localized) realms of consciousness.

While most persons associate the term spiritual with religion, I differentiate between the two.

Spiritual states of consciousness have a compassionate and life-positive quality that affirms the individual in some way. In some spiritual traditions, this affirmation of the individual is called redemption or grace. While this type of redemption or grace often seems to originate from a “savior” or spiritual being, it just as often originates from a direct experience of interconnectedness with the cosmos—without the need for an intercessor. These types of psycho-spiritual encounters often bring with them feelings of wellness and a deep sense of peace.

When a person experiences a powerful mind altering psycho-spiritual state, it can lead the individual directly into the numinous transcendent realms. Sometimes, however, it stirs up suppressed emotions and/or negative thought-forms that the person has been harboring unconsciously.

In these instances, instead of being elevated by the encounter, the person feels the emotional burden of unresolved issues.

Perhaps an experience I had when I was in my twenties might help to clarify what I mean here.

When I was 26, I went to see a gifted psychic-healer who worked by opening his clients’ heart chakras. During my first session, he used his hands to channel energy into my chest without ever actually touching me. I felt a distinctly warm and soothing energy enter my chest, and I also clairvoyantly “saw” in my “mind’s eye” a white light entering my heart as well.

It was a beautiful spring day and I walked home from my session feeling completely open to the world. It felt as if the entire world was inside my heart chakra, which had seemingly expanded to include the entire universe. I marveled at this open permeability to the world and the sense that my heart had expanded so far. At the same time, my intellect was mulling over the experience not knowing quite what to make of it. After all, logically speaking there was no way my heart chakra, if indeed there was even such a thing as a heart chakra, could expand to include the entire universe.

Nevertheless, the perception lasted for several hours. And then suddenly without warning I felt myself very small and anxious. Then I felt quite sad. All of this was new to me, and I didn’t know what to make of it. It took several days for these disturbing feelings to pass. But pass they did, and on the other side of the experience I felt more whole emotionally speaking.

Many years later I would come to understand that every emotion has its own distinct vibratory rate, spiritually speaking that is. And I would eventually apprehend how highly charged spiritual states could trigger the release of suppressed emotions.

The concept of psycho-spiritual states as catalysts for emotional purification is wonderfully summed up by a simple metaphor, which you may have come across as it is used a lot in personal growth circles.

Our emotional stuff (meaning suppressed emotions, memories and negative thought-forms) is like mud at the bottom of a barrel. After a while the water becomes clear. But if something comes along and stirs the water, the mud comes up to the surface from the bottom. And what was clear is now muddied.

If an individual experiences emotional purification from a highly charged psycho-spiritual encounter and doesn’t understand the process, he or she might misinterpret the mental/emotional purification. He or she might deem that the whole experience is a negative one, when in point-of-fact, it is positive one—meaning that it is ultimately leading to a positive outcome, namely a return to greater wholeness.

I feel that the relationship between spiritual experience and emotional clearing is so important, I wrote an article about it—Psycho-spiritual Detoxification, which you can read in the Articles section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com).

A few decades after that experience of emotional purification in my twenties, I gained a deeper insight into the process through the lens of scientific research into the energetic effects of different emotions.

To summarize a large and diverse body of information, emotional states can be divided into two categories: coherent and incoherent.

Coherent emotions such as joy, love, appreciation and gratitude positively affect our immune systems and even our problem solving abilities. The positive effects of these types of emotions on wellness and problem solving have, by the way, been well documented and continue to be studied by researchers in a wide range of disciplines.

Those readers interested in the science behind this research may find the on-going work of The Heart Math Institute and the pioneering work of the cell biologist, Bruce Lipton, as well as the ingenious approach of Dan Winter and the Implosion Group helpful.

While coherent emotions tend to increase wellness, incoherent emotions such as anger, hatred and resentment—to name but a few—can decrease wellness and affect brain processing in negative ways.

That last paragraph is based, by the way, on some of the latest research into the physical and psychological effects of emotional states that I mentioned earlier. While those statements are scientifically based, my next comment is not. It is personal opinion based on decades of exploration into the nature of psycho-spiritual experiences and the numinous nature of human consciousness.

Incoherent emotions, whether conscious or unconscious, hinder us from connecting with the numinous realms of human experience. And herein lies the kernel of the paradox when it comes to psycho-spiritual states.

During or after a strong mystical encounter (i.e., a high-energy psycho-spiritual state) one person might very well connect with feelings of agape (divine love) and experience himself or herself immersed in a universe filled with love. At the same time, however, another person might experience the exact opposite and find him or her self submerged in a type of existential hell world.

In my opinion, these two opposite psychological states can be partially explained by the interaction of two factors—1) the intensity of the psycho-spiritual encounter itself and 2) the depth of unresolved/un-owned psychological material.

If the emotional underworld of an individual is conflicted, a spiritual encounter (a highly charged psycho-spiritual experience) can open a proverbial Pandora’s Box of toxic emotions.

I became intrigued by this psychological dichotomy over three decades ago and wrote an article about it, called The Myth, The Hero and The Lie, which you can find in the Articles section of this website.

In my opinion, incoherent emotions such as anger, jealousy, hatred, etc., are an indisputable reality in the pantheon of human feelings. In other words, these emotions arise from time-to-time whether we like it or not.

Some incoherent emotions (such as anger) are authentic emotional responses to a perceived violation of personal boundaries. As such, they are mammalian emotive-protectors of personal autonomy. Furthermore, if incoherent emotions such as anger are wielded appropriately they can, in my experience, lead to personal growth and transformation.

If, however, incoherent emotional states are indulged too freely, they can easily become habitual responses (destructive habits) that can dim our capacity to sense the world in other ways.

This may be why many spiritual traditions and various religions, as well as some neuropsychologists, advise us to cultivate joy, appreciation, gratitude and compassion in our lives. These coherent emotional states are direct pathways, at least in my experience, to the sense of deep interconnectedness and wellness that characterize authentic spiritual states of mind.

Listening Strategies for Emotional Detox

Let us now turn our attention to the practical matter of how to manage “negative” material should it arise while listening to the Aethos Sound Meditation.

As I mentioned, earlier, many people report direct access to non-dual states of mind while listening. Many persons also report a deep sense of serenity.

But some report a plethora of negative thoughts, emotions and at times even uncomfortable physical sensations. If you experience this type of phenomena while listening, then I suggest the following course of action:

Stop listening completely and take a few days off. Then when you listen to the sound meditation again, limit your listening to about two and half  minutes. This would mean that you would stop listening about halfway through the five-minute version of the sound meditation.

If you are using the Aethos meditation CD, do not listen to the thirty-minute version. This is because the longer you listen to the sound meditation, the more emotional material it can stir up. It is best to take baby steps at first.

If you experience emotional material and/or psycho-spiritual detox after listening to the sound piece for just two and a half minutes, then you probably have a lot of emotional issues that need to be dealt with.

It is not in the scope of this article to address such matters, because they can be quite complex. However, many people report help in this regard by working with the Hathor Heart Chakra Healing Sound Meditation, which is available free of charge in the Listening section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com). A link to this sound meditation appears near the end of this article.

In addition, many people with emotional issues say they have been greatly assisted by working with the CD, Freedom To Be/Freedom To Change, which is available in both CD and mp3 formats in the Store section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com). This recording uses spoken Ericksonian imagery with psychoacoustic music to facilitate the transformation of mental and emotional issues.

In some cases, suppressed emotional material may be too much for a person to deal with on his or her own. If this is true for you, you might benefit from counseling to address the issues with a well-trained professional.

Manifesting

The Aethos Sound Meditation is a wonderful tool to alter consciousness for the purpose of manifesting positive outcomes. And for those interested in such matters, the sound piece is well worth exploring in this context.

The Hathors describe the use of this sound piece as a means for creation in their November 15, 2012 message entitled Non-duality and the Matrix of Creation, which you can find in the Hathor Archives of the website (www.tomkenyon.com).

I imagine that some persons reading this may wish to jump right into experimentation with the Aethos sound piece as a means to facilitate the manifesting process. But I would first urge you to master the use of the Aethos Sound Meditation to enter non-dual states of consciousness first—as this level of mastery is required to successfully manifest without undue negative consequences. What I mean by this is that manifesting anything in a dualistic reality (i.e., the world we live in) can lead to an arising of opposing forces. By entering a state of non-duality and creating outcomes from this non-dual state of mind, the reaction of counter-forces to your creations can be greatly reduced.

Since we are on the topic of manifesting, and the Hathors’ views regarding this innate human ability, I will mention a set of workshop recordings from a Hathor Intensive called The Art of Seeding New Realities.

This workshop was the source of all the Aethos information, and it was preparation for this workshop that initiated my very first contact with the Aethos to begin with—as I described at the beginning of this article.

This 10 CD set is a step-by-step journey into a powerful method for manifesting positive outcomes that the Hathors first presented publically in 2012. The set also includes several potent Hathor sound meditations that will empower you to enter highly creative states of consciousness.

I personally think anyone interested in a deeper understanding of the Hathors’ approach to creation would find this set of CDs indispensable. You can find more information about this set of recordings, which is titled The Sphere of All Possibilities in the Store section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com).

Greater Context 

The Aethos information originally given by the Hathors, as well as the sound meditation itself, is part of a large body of information that was imparted by the Hathors over the course of several messages. The titles and links to those messages appear below. Those readers who wish to understand the broad body of knowledge from which the Aethos Sound Meditation arises would, I think, be greatly enriched by reading these previous messages.

If you are reading this on our website, the underlined links will take you directly to the article. If you are reading this off-line, you can find all of these Hathor messages in the Hathor section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com)

This completes my thoughts and observations, as well as my practical suggestions, regarding the use of the Aethos Sound Meditation. I trust that you will find the Aethos sound piece as transformational and beneficial as I have.

Scientific Considerations

Earlier in this article, I said that I would address some of the scientific conundrums around the concept of non-localized consciousness. If you aren’t interested in such matters, then I would just skip this last section as it does not deal directly with the Aethos Sound Meditation but with intellectual considerations surrounding non-localized states of mind.

From the standpoint of modern neuropsychology, the verdict is not yet in regarding the actual existence of non-localized consciousness.

In point of fact, the bulk of neuropsychological researchers tend to believe that non-localized awareness is a type of mental mirage and that there is no aspect of consciousness that operates independently of brain function.

They point out, quite accurately, that when a portion of the brain is destroyed through accident or illness, the mental capacities associated with that area disappear. Ipso facto, our experience of the world (and ourselves) is, in their view, solely dependent upon proper brain function.

There is, however, another group of neuropsychological researchers who propose that non-localized consciousness does, in actuality, exist. They point to two areas of human experience as significant indicators—namely remote viewing and near death experiences.

The first area of human consciousness that seemingly points to the truth of non-localized awareness is remote viewing.

In remote viewing, an individual is trained to relax body and mind in such a manner that he or she can get mental impressions of distant objects.

Researchers have placed these remotely viewed objects at varying distances from the viewer. Sometimes they were in the next room. Sometimes they were miles away. In every instance of successful remote viewing, the individuals were able to describe aspects of the object that they could not have seen with their physical eyes. How on earth did they do this?

Researchers who contend that we have a non-localized aspect of consciousness that operates outside the constraints of our physical nervous systems point to remote viewing as a vindication of their views.

The second area of human consciousness that seemingly points to the existence of non-localized awareness can be found in near death experiences.

In many (but not all) near death experiences, the person undergoing the experience often recalls events during his or her death that cannot be explained by the current neurological model of human consciousness (i.e., there can be no consciousness without brain function).

In these instances, the person is clinically dead meaning that there is no measurable brain activity. There is presumably no sensory input into the brain or if there is, there are no functioning brain cells to receive the information.

Yet after such a near-death experience, some individuals are able to accurately describe what was happening around them when they were clinically dead. And in some cases, their memories are strangely accurate—down to what those around them said and even what clothes they were wearing. In some instances, the previously “dead” person can even describe what those around them were thinking at the time.

How could such information be retrieved if the person was brain dead?

Those researchers who postulate the existence of non-localized awareness say that these types of incidents vindicate their views.

But there is an inherent problem when we view near death experiences via the scientific process.

This is because the scientific method requires replication of experiments to verify that the same results are obtained each time. In these types of experiments, all variables are controlled to the greatest extent possible. Since the moment of a human being’s death is fairly unpredictable, such experiences are, by their very nature, un-replicable.

This poses a huge problem for those conducting this type of research.

I suspect that some type of methodology will develop in the future that will allow science to more accurately study the phenomena around near death experiences and non-localized awareness, but at the moment—at least from the scientific perspective—the last vote has not yet been counted.

Final Thoughts

Over these many years, I have had many non-localized experiences, beginning with a spontaneous Samadhi (yogic trance) when I was eighteen years old. Indeed, this non-ordinary experience set the course of my life in many ways. It sent me on a journey to understand what had happened to me in that moment of blissful transcendence and what its relationship was to my day-to-day human experience of the world. It drove me on a quest into every major spiritual and mystical tradition I could find, and finally into neuroscience and quantum physics as a means to explain the inexplicable.

For what it is worth, I believe that yes, our experience of the world is based upon and defined by our brain function. I also believe, however, that there are aspects of our being that transcend brain function, transcend our biology and even transcend our perceptions of time and space.

The Hathor Planetary Meditation: An Update @ Tom Kenyon

A Hathor Message

The Hathor Planetary Meditation: An Update

There were over 500 people gathered in the Peter Jay Sharpe Theatre at Symphony Space in New York to be the nexus point for the global meditation on Sept. 5th.

The meditation was recorded and you can listen and/or download it using the link at the bottom of this page. You are receiving this sound meditation because you received the Hathor postings. It is only being made available to people who receive the Hathor postings or joined us in New York. It will also be part of a workshop set when that is produced. This is copyrighted material. We ask that you not post it anywhere or use it in any way other than for your personal use.

The Hathors have said that the meditation, which was joined by tens of thousands of people around the world, was successful, and we should see an increase of global awareness and action regarding our ecosystem within the next 9 – 12 months. Upon questioning them further, they said that this shift would come from grassroots organizations, the voices of children and international cooperation unimaginable at this point in time.

I thought some of you might like to know my personal experience around the meditation. For days before the event I was resistant because I intuitively sensed how intense the planetary energetic was going to be and how it was going to affect me.

During the meditation I was clairvoyantly catapulted into space and saw Earth being bathed in celestial light and healing energies by a cornucopia of benevolent beings from multiple dimensions. It was a mind-boggling experience to sense the depth and magnitude of celestial help that was being extended to our planet.

This energetic was so strong I was profoundly altered for many hours. In point of fact, I experienced a rapid activation of my Biophotonic network, meaning that the cells of my body were emitting light at an accelerated rate. This was a psychic impression, mind you, and not something I was able to verify through any type of scientific measurement. But the impression of increased light persisted, and I experienced my energy body as a field of pure diamond lights for over twenty-four hours. Note: If you are new to the science of Biophotonics you can find a list of resources on the topic by going to the Articles section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com) and click on Biophotonics- Class Handout: http://tomkenyon.com/biophotonics-class-handout

While I was still receiving sensory input from my environment and body, it was periodically eclipsed by strong sensations of intense white light, and this phenomenon continued well into the night and into dreamtime.

While my experience of this light-filled body was blissful and ecstatic, my personal reaction afterwards was not. What I mean by this is that when I enter high vibratory fields of energy during Intensives and workshops, there is often a temporary reaction from my egoic self, meaning my contracted level of self. And it often takes some time for me to come back to a state of personal balance, meaning my “normal” (and I do mean quote, unquote) state of being.

Other psychonauts (explorers of consciousness) have also mentioned to me that they have experienced similar phenomena in their own explorations.

In the case of the Sept 5th Hathor Global Meditation, it took me about 72 hours to come back to my usual sense of self, although I must say that there is now a higher energetic in my being as a result of joining all of you in this global meditation and for this I am truly appreciative.

I am sharing this personal anecdote simply to indicate the potency and power of the energetic we all created together. And I am sharing this in case some of you had a similar post meditation reaction similar to mine.

I wish to thank you from the deepest place in my heart for taking the time and energy to participate.

Blessings to you and your loved ones,

Tom

On the Nature of Angels ~ A Hathor Planetary Message ~ Tom Kenyon

________________

On the Nature of Angels

In this message we wish to discuss our perspective regarding the nature of angels.

This has nothing to do with religion. Rather it has to do with interdimensional reality.

For our purposes we shall divide the topic of angels into three broad categories.

Angels of the Spiritual Realms

These ephemeral beings are electromagnetic fields of intelligence, some of which have form that is recognizable and some of which do not. These electromagnetic fields of intelligence interact with human beings in unique ways, and the expectations and beliefs of any given human have a lot to do with the nature of the experience. In other words, the belief system of the human being greatly affects what is experienced.

Angels from the spiritual realms take many different forms and while some of them have energy fields that give the impression that they have wings, many of them do not.

These types of angels are created beings. They are force fields of intelligence that are sent out into the ethers, into the cosmos, to do the bidding or to take the action of their creator.

This creator can take the form of what might be referred to as a god, goddess, demigod or demigoddess, an interdimensional being, an alien intelligence, or even a human being. These types of angels have no free will of their own. They are created for the sole purpose of a particular intention.

In most cases an angel will continue on its mission with single-mindedness until the energy that created it is no longer able to sustain it. In some very rare instances these angelic beings can gain a level of self-awareness and an ability to make personal choices separate from the being that created them or gave them birth. This is a very rare occurrence, but it does exist.

Within this category of angels, you have a host of beings with many different intentions.

The focus of this message is on angels who have a life-affirming and positive intent.

Angels Within

A second category of angels may best be described as electromagnetic fields of intelligence that exist solely within the human body. These are force fields of intelligence created through the emotions and beliefs of the individual human. They are subtle energetic forces that move through the human body in response to beliefs and emotions.

One of the great abilities you possess as a human being is to create angelic forces within your body through the use of positive intent and positive emotion. We will return to this most important topic in a moment.

Alien Intelligences

This third category of angels is not angelic at all, but it is a misinterpretation.

It occurs when a human being encounters an alien intelligence. This type of encounter can be misinterpreted as having been an interaction with an angel. Many of your spiritual and religious traditions have stories about encounters with angelic beings, or gods/goddesses who were, in truth, simply more advanced alien civilizations.

Our reason for discussing the topic of angels is two-fold.

Thought, Fear and Change

The first reason is a practical one having to do with your spiritual survival through the massive changes taking place upon your Earth. In its simplest form we would say that the rapid changes upon your Earth are creating a reflexive fear.

With few exceptions human beings, by nature, distrust change.  And when there is as much change occurring as is taking place upon your planet this natural fear response escalates, and this releases in your body damaging electromagnetic fields of intelligence.

So as a counter to this we will discuss the creation of positive consequences within your human biology through the creation of subatomic angelic forms.

Your sciences of psychoneuroimmunology, or the study of how thought and emotion affect your immune systems—as well as the newly emerging science of epigenetics, which studies how thought and emotion affect your DNA—are increasingly clear on the chemical and molecular agents responsible.

But we would like to take this a step further by suggesting that you actually create quantum field effects in the universe of your body through the thoughts and feelings you generate.

It is here that we come to a fork in the road.

Due to the escalation of chaotic forces in your world, a growing number of human beings are experiencing increased feelings of fear, anxiety, hostility, and impoverishment. The list goes on, and it would be easy, if you were so inclined, to substantiate your belief that you live in an increasingly dangerous and threatening world.

On the one hand this is a correct assessment, but if you remain in this island of perceptual reality you will create damaging effects, biologically speaking, within your body.

The trick, if there is one, is to counter this perception with personal periods of renewal and solace. By this we mean creating ways to release biologically positive consequences through the creation of subatomic angelic forms.

How this is accomplished is quite complex. But in its simplest form, whenever you create positive thoughts and positive feelings you create biologically positive subatomic angels that move through the universe of your body. These force fields create quantum field effects that switch on positive biological responses thereby reducing the affects of stress.

In addition to purposefully creating positive thoughts and feelings, we believe a beneficial resource for you can be found in the last sound meditation we gave, called A Bridge between the Worlds.  Simply listening to this sound meditation for twelve minutes, which is how long it lasts, once or twice a day can make a big difference in how you feel. (Note: A link to this sound meditation appears at the end of this message.)

We feel it is vitally important that you consciously release biologically positive force fields in your body on a regular basis to counteract the escalating madness that is swirling around you.

We would refer you here to an earlier message called Ecstasy and the Heart, as this information may prove helpful to you.

Our second reason for discussing the topic of angels is planetary in nature.

You are collectively passing through a very difficult and dangerous point. The destructive forces upon your planet in terms of religious fanaticism, climate change, corporate greed and manipulation, as well as dire threats to the very foundations of your eco-system are increasing.

You are now entering, from our perspective, a massive Chaotic Node the likes of which your planet has not seen for some time. If unmitigated, this Chaotic Node could result in the mass extinction of multitudinous life forms including many humans.

We are therefore calling into action all positive angelic forms from all spiritual traditions, from all life-affirming interdimensional beings, from all alien civilizations of positive intent, and from all human beings who are aligned with our intention.

We will be creating a nexus point on September 5, 2015. And through a global meditation we will be calling forth these many diverse and life affirming angelic forms into an alliance for the protection of life and its elevation upon this planet.

Let us be clear what we mean by this.

If human consciousness elevates itself to a higher level than it is currently manifesting, then it deserves to survive. If it does not elevate itself then humanity, as you know it, will not survive this passage. It is a collective cosmic intelligence test you are now facing on many levels.

Our creation of this nexus point, around which these positive electromagnetic fields of intelligence can move together as a coherent force, is an unusual proposition.

This is because the creators of these angels come from many different spiritual, alien and interdimensional sources.  These “angelic beings” rarely interact with each other, and yet we are calling them to the Table of Destiny for the sake of humanity and all life upon this planet.

This nexus point will occur on September 5, 2015, in the last half hour of an event in Manhattan called In the Company of Angels. The meditation will begin at 5:30PM and end at 6:00PM Daylight Savings Time (US) or 9:30PM – 10:00PM GMT. (For the specific time in your area, you can use an online Time Converter or the World Time Clock.)

This sound meditation will be recorded and posted on our website after the event, and if this sound piece resonates with you we ask that you listen to it on an on-going basis. In other words this is not a one-time meditation, but it is being created to be a continuous field of coherent energy that you will strengthen every time you listen to it.

If you are unable to be in New York physically for the sound meditation and wish to attune yourself to the nexus point that is being formed, we suggest that you listen to A Bridge Between the Worlds during the time frame of the meditation in New York. During this period, place your awareness at your crown chakra at the top of your head. Listen to the meditation three times, and then give yourself at least 30 minutes of rest before moving into outer activity.  (Note: A link to this sound piece appears at the end of this message. Please download this sound piece onto your computer before the event rather than listening to it from our server.)

If you choose to join us in this nexus point meditation from afar, we welcome you. And know that at this level of consciousness, separation by physical distance is not a constraint.

The Hathors
June 21, 2015

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

When I originally conceived of In the Company of Angels to be presented as a one-day event in Manhattan, I never imagined that the Hathors would step in and ask for the opportunity to create a world meditation.

The very next day after receiving this particular message, Judi and I read an article in the Huffington Post about a joint study conducted by Stanford, Princeton and the University of California at Berkeley. The conclusion of the study, which was published in Science Advances, Vol. 1 No. 5 June 5, 2015, was that the Earth’s ecosystem has actually entered a sixth mass extinction phase.

For those of you who might wish to read the study for yourself, here is a link to the article: http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/5/e1400253

On the heels of this study, a cornucopia of other studies and anecdotal reports all seem to confirm a more rapid deterioration of our ecosystem than was originally thought.

At a pragmatic level I think it is going to take an all out global effort to slow down the deterioration of our ecosystem, and it is going to require a level of planetary co-operation that is, at this moment, unimaginable.

As the astrophysicist Carl Sagan once said: “Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception.”

I would say that we have entered an exceptional moment in our planet’s history and it is going to take exceptional solutions if we are to pull through this growing Chaotic Node.

In all the years I have been channeling the Hathors, I have never known them to be so direct about the possibility of an impending disaster, nor have I seen them undertake such an immense task as creating a nexus point for the co-creation of solutions for humanity and our planet through an angelic alliance.

This is the stuff of science fiction, mythic heroes and heroines. But from the Hathors’ perspective, the angelic realms are connected to the primordial power of the cosmos—at least from an interdimensional perspective. And so they are calling upon them and us to join together to create a coherency of intent for the purpose of creating a new standard of international cooperation, as well as a new reality where all forms of life upon this planet are recognized as intrinsically interconnected.

For those of you who feel called to this grand experiment in consciousness but are unable to physically attend the event, I wish to re-iterate something the Hathors said at the very end of this message:

“If you choose to join us in this nexus point meditation from afar, we welcome you. And know that at this level of consciousness, separation by physical distance is not a constraint.”

Having facilitated many Hathor world meditations over the years, I can honestly say that they are correct. I say this based on feedback we have received from persons all over the world about what they experienced when they “tuned in” to a global meditation. To say that magic happened for them, wherever they were in the world, would be an understatement.

For those of you who wish to join us in spirit on Sept 5, 2015, please download the sound meditation A Bridge Between the Worlds rather than listen to it from our server. I make this request because if too many people try to listen to it from our site at the same time, the server will not be able to handle the demand; it will crash, and no one will be able to hear it.

For those of you tuning into the global meditation from a distance, the Hathors suggest that you listen to the sound meditation (A Bridge Between the Worlds) three times with your awareness at your crown. They also suggest taking thirty minutes or so afterwards to integrate your experience.

If you have the flexibility to do so, I would allow more time for this integration period since the Hathors indicated that making such deep contact with the angelic realms could profoundly alter awareness, and some persons would do well to take a long nap afterward.

A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon

______________

A Hathor Planetary Message

Through Tom Kenyon

In this message we wish to discuss our perspective regarding the nature of angels.

This has nothing to do with religion. Rather it has to do with interdimensional reality.

For our purposes we shall divide the topic of angels into three broad categories.

Angels of the Spiritual Realms

These ephemeral beings are electromagnetic fields of intelligence, some of which have form that is recognizable and some of which do not. These electromagnetic fields of intelligence interact with human beings in unique ways, and the expectations and beliefs of any given human have a lot to do with the nature of the experience. In other words, the belief system of the human being greatly affects what is experienced.

Angels from the spiritual realms take many different forms and while some of them have energy fields that give the impression that they have wings, many of them do not.

These types of angels are created beings. They are force fields of intelligence that are sent out into the ethers, into the cosmos, to do the bidding or to take the action of their creator.

This creator can take the form of what might be referred to as a god, goddess, demigod or demigoddess, an interdimensional being, an alien intelligence, or even a human being. These types of angels have no free will of their own. They are created for the sole purpose of a particular intention.

In most cases an angel will continue on its mission with single-mindedness until the energy that created it is no longer able to sustain it. In some very rare instances these angelic beings can gain a level of self-awareness and an ability to make personal choices separate from the being that created them or gave them birth. This is a very rare occurrence, but it does exist.

Within this category of angels, you have a host of beings with many different intentions.

The focus of this message is on angels who have a life-affirming and positive intent.

Angels Within

A second category of angels may best be described as electromagnetic fields of intelligence that exist solely within the human body. These are force fields of intelligence created through the emotions and beliefs of the individual human. They are subtle energetic forces that move through the human body in response to beliefs and emotions.

One of the great abilities you possess as a human being is to create angelic forces within your body through the use of positive intent and positive emotion. We will return to this most important topic in a moment.

The Hathors via Tom Kenyon: The Fifth Perspective – Transcending Space and Time

A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon

The Hathors via Tom Kenyon: The Fifth Perspective – Transcending Space and Time

Entering into higher dimensions of consciousness requires a fundamental shift in perceived time and space.

This is a crucial shift in perception that we wish to address using a theoretical perspective and a practical technique, which includes the use of a sound meditation we have created for this purpose.

The Theory

There are many ways to view higher dimensions. What we wish to share is a basic schematic of how we view dimensions and the challenges you face as you transit into higher dimensional reality.

Your embodied biological reality (i.e., your physical body) is anchored in the third and fourth dimensions of consciousness, as we view it.

You are quite familiar with the third-dimensionality of your world. Your nervous system is keenly tuned to this reality. Your brain/mind/body complex is synchronized to the physical reality of your world. Your very biological survival depends upon your navigation of the space around you. Furthermore, your body, mind, and consciousness are anchored in your perception of time.

Your higher-dimensional levels of consciousness, however, are not bound by these constraints. They are free of spatial and time-oriented restrictions. This is due to the fact that your higher-dimensional bodies have no mass or physicality, and are thus unaffected by gravitational fields.

Time is greatly affected by gravitational fields. Furthermore, your perception of time is affected by conditioning. The combination of gravitational fields and social conditioning has resulted in most human beings finding themselves marooned in the constraints of space and time.

Pragmatically speaking, your experience of ‘reality’ is a result of the vibratory level you identify with. When you identify with higher dimensions of consciousness you are freed from the constraints of space and time, and you operate in a more fluid reality.

When you identify solely with your biological reality you are, for all intents and purposes, trapped in space and time.

In this message we will be presenting a method for you to shift your personal identity from the constraints of perceived time and space to the freedom of higher dimensions, while also living your day-to-day life in a civilization and dimensional reality that is bound by these constraints (i.e., space and time).

But before imparting this method, we need to delve into the theory a little bit further.

As we view it, time is the fourth dimension. For us, space and time are intimately related. Your scientists have confirmed Einstein’s theory that large objects with mass generate gravitational fields, which alter both space and time.

For us, the fifth dimension is the first dimension of consciousness outside the constraints of space and time (i.e., the third and fourth dimensions); and beings in the fifth dimension have no mass, and are therefore not subject to the effects of gravitational fields.

While the fifth dimension has no physicality, per se, it does have form, or objects. But from your perspective, forms in the fifth dimension seem ephemeral—having no substance or reality.

When you enter the fifth dimension you will still experience yourself as having a form (i.e., a body). And things in the fifth dimension will appear to you as solid as the forms you experience in your current reality. But your experience of space will be much more fluid, and time as a reference point will not exist.

There are those who say that all of your problems will be magically and instantaneously solved when you enter into higher dimensions. This is not our experience. It is just that the challenges are different. The opportunities are also different, because you are not confined by the limitations of space and time as you experience them in your current embodied reality. This gives you greater opportunities for creativity and what we call ‘dimensional evolution.’

Dimensional evolution is the development of the ability to be aware of, and operate within, multiple dimensions simultaneously. The journey to this state of mastery can indeed be a long and convoluted one, because it involves living in a specific dimensional reality through direct experience.

For instance, your current embodied life is—from the standpoint of dimensional evolution—an opportunity to master the third and fourth dimensions. It is also an opportunity to experience higher dimensions while simultaneously living an embodied existence.

A life lived in this manner rapidly accelerates dimensional evolution, and this message is coded with multiple levels of information for those of you who have entered this radical way of being.

From our perspective, you possess a form that is human-like up through the ninth dimension. Each successive dimension of consciousness is subtler (less dense) than the one before it. For those who enter the tenth dimension, form, as you know it, disappears completely, and you become more geometric in nature.

When we enter the tenth dimension we become spheres. We are not the spheres that show up in photographs that some people refer to as orbs. True orbs, as opposed to photographic artifacts or hoaxes, are interdimensional beings that have spherical geometry.

And if you look more closely, these spheres will reveal complex labyrinths inside. The spherical nature of interdimensional beings is a commonality, and many different types of beings have this geometric form.

When we enter the tenth dimension some of us become what we call the Aethos, which we have discussed in other messages.

But let us turn our attention back to you. Collectively, humanity is being rapidly drawn into the fifth dimension. This is an inevitable evolutionary shift; one fraught with both danger and opportunity, and we wish now to discuss a few of the challenges facing you as you make this transition.

For the purposes of this discussion we would like to divide these challenges into three broad categories: 1) naturally occurring challenges to transitions in consciousness, 2) manmade influences, and 3) alien interference.

Naturally Occurring Challenges

Transitions into higher dimensions are problematic due to radical differences in perception between beings that are gravity bound and those that are not. In other words, at the threshold between your third and fourth dimensional reality and your fifth dimensional reality you are faced with a ‘wall’ of perceptual differences.

Indeed, some individuals who experience fifth dimensional reality think they are losing their minds. This is because perceived space and time are temporarily suspended. Perception is more fluid in the higher dimensions, and when you enter these dimensions you stand outside of your own life. It’s as if you are disconnected from the realities and demands of your earthly existence, which can create immense relief or immense distress, depending upon your personal psychology.

When your consciousness shifts into the fifth dimension, your personal identity changes. You simply cannot identify with your earthly existence in the ways you are used to. This challenge, from our perspective, is actually the most difficult when you first enter the fifth dimension. Transiting from the fifth into higher dimensions is inherently easier because you are already used to the disappearance of space and time as limitations.

Transiting into the fifth dimension (and higher) requires finesse on your part if you are to accomplish the task of living your day-to-day life while accommodating this expanded reality.

One of the future abilities of humanity, collectively speaking, will be the ability to live in third and fourth dimensions—meaning space and time as you currently know them—while simultaneously living in the fifth dimension where space and time are not experienced as constraints.

This dual reality will offer humanity immense creative insights and abilities, but as with most progressions this is a bell-curve. And most likely many of you reading this message are further ahead in this transition than the bulk of humanity. This may leave you feeling like a stranger living in a strange land.

Manmade Influences

Your transition from third- and fourth-dimensional reality into the fifth and higher is made all the more difficult by manmade or cultural influences.

From the standpoint of dimensional evolution the edifice of your entire civilization is founded upon an illusion. The illusion is that your world is solid and that space and time are unyielding realities that cannot be affected by your consciousness.

While you are biologically compelled to attend to the demands of the third and fourth dimensions in your everyday life, paying attention to perceived space and time is different from believing that they are the only reality.

Your territorial-based philosophical, religious, and political systems thrive upon and depend upon the perpetuation of this illusion. But in our opinion, the house of cards that you call human civilization will eventually collapse and radically evolve as more and more individuals free themselves from living confined lives that are solely oriented to lower dimensional realities.

Let us turn our attention now to other influences that can, and are, negatively impacting your transition into higher dimensional realities.

Your eco-system is in a downward spiral, making it more and more challenging for biological organisms to survive. This is creating immense stress for all animal and plant life including humans. Some of the threats to your ecosystem are cosmic in nature such as solar activity as well as gamma and other forms of radiation from deep space. Some of the threats come from changes in the Earth itself, but much of the degradation of your ecosystem is manmade, including—but certainly not limited to—carbon emissions and the acidification of your oceans.

We will not take the time or space (a private joke) to discuss this further as it is very complex. But anyone who believes that everything is fine with the ecological reality of your planet is in denial.

This leads us to the power brokers, those who empower themselves by disempowering others. We are referring, in this instance, to corporate entities that disseminate misinformation about the ecosystem so that they can perpetuate their income at the expense of your planet’s life forms.

This is an intelligence test for humanity, and if you do not collectively wake up and see that you have been manipulated and taken advantage of by the power brokers—both seen and unseen—your ecosystem will continue to degrade, and you will be confronted with a future not worth living.

Alien Interference

Part of what we call alien interference is genetic in nature and has to do with early genetic tampering by the Annunaki. This alien civilization created what is essentially a slave race for the purpose of mining gold, which they desperately needed to reinforce the energetics of their dwindling atmosphere.

A genetic experiment was undertaken in which early primates on earth were genetically altered by the Annunaki to serve as workers, as slaves, for the purpose of mining. Thus, built into the very genetic coding of your biology is a deeply-engrained tendency to be subservient and to worship what you perceive to be “divine beings.”

Early humans perceived the Annunaki (and many other galactic and intergalactic travelers) as gods, but these beings were simply so technologically advanced their mere presence and actions seemed like magic to less evolved minds.

The transition point from the constraints of third- and fourth-dimensional existence into the greater freedom of the fifth dimension and beyond can create an emotional challenge. This is due to the fact that the immense freedom experienced in higher dimensional reality can be temporarily disorienting. This type of disorientation is caused by two factors 1) the disappearance of perceived space and time as reference points and 2) the Annunaki manipulation.

If you have not freed yourself from the Annunaki genetic template of subservience and worship, your experience of the higher dimensions can be contaminated.

This is due to the simple truth that there are a multitude of interdimensional beings, alien and otherwise, who will be happy to fill in the gap—who will feed on your subservience to their will and glory in your worship.

If this is your choice, then this will be your reality. We have no judgment as to whether you choose this or not, but we do think that such a choice would be unfortunate.

The nexus of our message is one of personal empowerment and freedom, so we caution you as you enter into the fifth and higher dimensional realities to avoid alien implanted delusions that there are other beings you should bow down to. Honor them if they are honorable, yes. Bow down to anyone? Never!

Death and the Fifth Dimension

When you shift your identity into the fifth dimension, your personal history in this life seems like a dream. This is because you have transcended the sensory anchors of your embodied life, and all of your history and all the histories of this universe are experienced as dream-like.

During certain states of profoundly expanded consciousness, this dream-like nature of life can be experienced directly. But for most human beings this experience only emerges through the passage you call death.

There are two types of death we wish to discuss. The first type of death is the psychological and spiritual metamorphosis that occurs when you shift into fifth-dimensional reality. This can often feel like a type of death because your habitual orientation to the sensory-based realities of your life disappears. Who are you? What is the meaning of your life? These fundamental existential questions are profoundly affected by transitions into fifth and higher dimensional realities.

And so for those of you reading this who are transiting into the fifth dimension—or higher—we say to you, do not be dismayed by the feelings of your demise. Your feelings of your impending death may be arising within you as a result of your transition into higher dimensional reality and not a harbinger of your physical death.

The second type of death we wish to discuss is the death of your biological reality (i.e., your physical body). At the final completion of the death process you will no longer receive sensory input from your external world, and your experience of space and time (as you currently experience them) will be obliterated. This can be quite disorienting if you are not prepared. It can also be quite exhilarating if you understand the nature of what is happening.

If you fully and completely identify yourself solely as a biological organism the moment of your death can be frightening. If, however, you have already tasted the freedom of fifth dimensional reality or higher your transition through death will be easier.

At the completion of your biological death, from our experience and perspective, you will be confronted with three portals. The first is a tunnel of light. The second is a portal opened through the energetics of a guru or savior. And the third is a portal, or tunnel, that leads into darkness.

The tunnel of light is generated from the pranic tube that runs through the center of your body, which runs from your perineum to your crown, and it is a tunnel-like or tube-like channel. At the moment of death, your consciousness moves upward through this tunnel that opens into another dimension of consciousness through your crown chakra.

On the other side of this tunnel is a bright light, and you may find yourself sensing that you are on a bridge crossing over a stream or a river. On the other side of the bridge will be those persons of your previous life, the lifetime you have just ended. You may sense those who have died before you, including pets you have had, because the animal spirits also dwell in this realm.

If there are incomplete relationships or issues still to be resolved with these persons or beings, you may feel a yearning to enter this light, and by doing so you re-enter the wheel of birth and death, and you will reincarnate—most likely on Earth.

The second portal is created by the personal will of a guru or savior. Entering this portal will lead you into the vibratory field of the guru or savior that you have a deep personal connection to. And for those of you on this path, entering this dimension of consciousness will be the completion of a profound desire to be with this being. Our caution here is that you will be entering a realm defined not only by the evolutionary attainment of your guru or savior but also by his or her limitations.

The third portal opens into darkness. And entering this portal leads you into the Void, the creatrix from which all things arise. If you choose this portal and have prepared yourself to deal with this level of freedom you will be freed to explore other dimensions of this cosmos and beyond, meaning states of being that transcend all physical phenomena. In this realm of existence you can become an explorer of other realities as you so choose.

Some individuals swoon when confronted with the vastness of the Void. They rush into choosing a new reality rather than taking their time to rest in the potential of all things. We have addressed this in a previous message called Transition States.

We have no judgment as to which portal you enter through the dimensional shift you call death. But we think it is beneficial for you to know what awaits you beforehand so that you can prepare yourself for the choices that you will be compelled to make on the other side of your earthly experience.

Death is not an ending. It is merely the completion of one journey through space and time. Death is a harbinger of new potential realities, and you will create these realities through the choices you made during your life as well as through the choices you make at the moment of your death.

We will now turn our attention to a simple method for training your consciousness to enter higher dimensions and to enter the freedom of your transcendent reality—unconstrained by the limitations of perceived space and time. This method is based on the use of a simple sound meditation to explore the freedom of consciousness that arises when you shift your self-identity to higher dimensions.

As you experiment with this threshold of consciousness, which we call the Fifth Perspective, we caution you to avoid the temptation of escapism. We are offering this method, not as a means to escape the realities of your embodied existence, rather we are offering it as a means to enhance and enrich your experience of life by giving you access to the fifth dimension and beyond.

Higher-dimensional realities, unconfined by the constraints of perceived space and time, conjoined with the realities of your biological existence creates a potent catalyst for dimensional evolution, and in our opinion this is to be celebrated rather than avoided.

For those of you reading this who are, in fact, at the brink of your physical death this sound meditation can assist you to enter a more gracious passage.

The Fifth Perspective

The Fifth Perspective is quite simply the recognition that you are unconstrained by space or time. It is a foyer or an entrance into the fifth dimension, and from there into higher dimensions as well.

It is a direct perception, not just a thought or an idea. It is a visceral experience generated through the activation of your right cerebral hemisphere’s ability for spatial mastery.

When you enter into an expanded sense of spaciousness through direct experience, a shift in consciousness occurs. You become a witness to the dream-like nature of your life, your history and all phenomena around you. T

his sense of freedom, this transcendence of perceived space and time, can allow you to deal with the realities of your embodied existence in more creative and resourceful ways, and this is why we are imparting this method.

As we cautioned you earlier, this is not meant to be a form of escapism. But there is indeed a temptation in the Fifth Perspective we need to address more clearly before proceeding.

When you enter the Fifth Perspective, which is the transcendence of perceived space and time, everything about your life and the world around you seems dream-like. You are detached from it all, and it may seem to you as if your day-to-day life is like a dance in which you have no interest.

If you remain in the Fifth Perspective without engaging the realities of your embodied life you will enter a bubble, but in terms of dimensional evolution you will not be benefitted by such an escape.

We can imagine that remaining in the bubble of the Fifth Perspective would be the best choice for some individuals in very rare instances. But for most persons the Fifth Perspective is best used as a springboard into deeper insight and creativity.

When you work with the sound meditation, you will be training your brain/mind to enter the Fifth Perspective. The spatial nature of the sound patterns will create a response in your brain/mind/body that opens a doorway into the Fifth Perspective, and eventually you will find yourself in an expanded state of awareness.

The more you work with the sound meditation the stronger this ability becomes. Ultimately, you graduate to a place where you can enter the Fifth Perspective in the midst of your daily activities—and this is the goal.

When you are confronted by a difficult situation in your life and are able to simultaneously reside in the Fifth Perspective, the pressure of the situation decreases. This is due to the fact that your consciousness is less bound by the circumstances. You have a little ‘wiggle room,’ so to speak, and within that inner freedom new creative insights and problem solving abilities will spontaneously arise within you.

The Meditation

We call this meditation ‘A Bridge Between the Worlds’. It stimulates a mental state that allows you to experience the freedom of the Fifth Perspective.

We suggest you listen to this sound meditation with earphones or ear buds so the acoustic information is routed more directly into your brain without the presence of other sounds in the environment.

As you begin listening, you simply recall the feeling of being surrounded by an immense space. It is the feeling of being surrounded by space that activates your brain’s right hemispheric abilities. Thinking about being surrounded by a large space will not activate this potential. You must kinesthetically feel or sense yourself surrounded by a large space.

If you are an advanced explorer of consciousness, you can deepen the experience by sensing that there is no barrier between the external space around you and the internal space of your body. In other words, the boundary of your body temporarily disappears, and there is nothing but space. You simply hold this state of mind as you listen to the sound meditation.

When your mind wanders, you bring it back to an awareness of space and the sounds you are hearing. When the meditation is complete we suggest you take a few moments to sense what is happening within you.

When you have mastered the ability to enter the Fifth Perspective using this sound meditation, you are ready to graduate and explore using this ability in the midst of your life circumstances. The union of the constraints of your embodied life with the freedom of higher dimensional realities creates a most interesting paradox, and through entering this paradox you will greatly accelerate your dimensional evolution.

The Hathors
April 20, 2015

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

This sound meditation (A Bridge Between the Worlds) is about 12 minutes in length. But as you begin to experiment with the method of listening to the sounds while entering into the Fifth Perspective (i.e., the feeling of spaciousness), don’t feel that you need to meditate on this sound piece for its full duration. Some people will find that a few minutes are all they can ‘handle,’ and if you are one of these persons I would say to just slowly extend the time according to your comfort zone.

Paradoxically, some people will wish that the sound meditation could be longer. If you are one of these individuals, I would just hit the repeat button as often as you desire—up to a point. If you stop doing the things in your life that need to be done, like the laundry and dishes, I think you may have gone overboard and need to reel yourself back in a bit. It’s all about balance.

A link to this audio file appears at the end of my comments.

It is not advisable to listen to this sound-piece or experiment with the Fifth Perspective in situations requiring alertness such as driving a car or operating machinery since the combination of the two is quite mind altering.

Those of you who have listened to The Elevatron will notice strong similarities, and I suggest you read the previous Hathor message, Escalation of Chaotic Nodes and Dismantling of 3 D Reality, to get a sense of what this fundamental harmonic is about.

A Technical Note: For those of you curious about the technical differences between the two sound meditations, A Bridge Between the Worlds is an extended version of The Elevatron with a contoured EQ to enhance its inherently calming effects. Having worked with the meditation in multiple settings, I feel this sound piece is quite effective as an aid to attain the Fifth Perspective.

In this message the Hathors refer to two of their previous messages, The Aethos and Transition States. I think reading both of these would be beneficial, especially Transition States. If you click on the underlined titles above, it will take you to the messages or you can go to the Hathor section of the website (www.tomkenyon.com) and look them up by their titles.

Experienced Explorers of the Mind will be able to enter into the Fifth Perspective quite easily. If you are new to the exploration of your inner worlds, the Fifth Perspective may seem a bit foreign since it stands in such stark contrast to most people’s everyday perception of reality. But the Fifth Perspective is fundamentally a brain skill, a way to activate the spatial intelligence of your brain’s right hemisphere.

And it is through the agency of your right brain that you will be able to explore the vastness of inner space. While the outcome of this brain skill is a seemingly exotic state of mind, like any brain skill it can be developed. It just takes time and experience with the method.

Every time you work with the sound meditation, as the Hathors suggest, you will be building new neurological circuits in your brain that will eventually allow you to enter the Fifth Perspective and transcend space and time with true mastery—even if you have never ever tried anything like this before.

The secret is repetition. The more you work with the Fifth Perspective in conjunction with the sound meditation, the more effective your brain will become at producing this unusual and resourceful state of mind.

A Hathor Planetary Message
Through Tom Kenyon

Hathorian Stream of LightThe Hathors have been asking me to post this sound meditation for weeks due to the extreme stress that many individuals are experiencing and will continue to experience in their lives.This sound meditation is gentle and subtle, but its benefits are extensive, in that it allows you to gently release tension that arises from your present circumstances, and if you choose to work with it further it can help release negativity from your past.

The meditation is 12 minutes long and is best listened to with stereo headphones or earbuds. If you have the space to do so I suggest you lie down and prop your legs up so that they are higher than your head and chest as this simple position will assist you to relax more deeply.

Breathe in long slow comfortable inhales and gently relaxed exhales, letting each exhale be more relaxed than the one before it.

The sounds that comprise the meditation are from a stream that flows on the island where I live along with Hathor sounds that are analogs from the light realms to release stress and to activate networks of light in your body.

As you listen to this meditation imagine that a stream of liquid light is flowing through you from the top of your head down through the space of your body and out your feet and hands, gently carrying away stress and tension.

Keep your awareness in your physical body as you listen to the sounds of the stream and the sounds of the Hathors. By doing so you will allow the vibratory energy of healing and release to move deeply into your organs and other areas of your body that may be tense and constricted.

I suggest you rest a few minutes with your eyes closed after listening in order to sense the subtle energies that have been released within you. You can repeat the sequence as many times as you wish to create a listening session as long as you desire.

A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon

A Hathor Planetary Message
Through Tom Kenyon

Escalation of Chaotic Nodes and the Dismantling of 3-D RealityDue to time-acceleration and cosmic forces far beyond your control you are in the midst of a crescendo of interlocking Chaotic Nodes.In past messages we have referred to the interaction of chaotic events as a Chaotic Node, singular, but in this instance we are referring to a more complex phenomenon—what we are calling Chaotic Nodes, plural.

Depending upon your vibratory resonance you will be affected in unique ways by the escalation of chaotic events. Those of you sensitive to the ecosystem of this planet may be experiencing extreme duress as you witness the degradation of the ecosystem and the loss of many species of life.

Another Chaotic Node, in addition to the Chaotic Node of your ecosystem, is the stress of interpersonal communications. This is a very complex situation, and it is partly due to the shifts in magnetic fields upon your planet, making short-term memory and cognitive sequencing difficult during energetic shifts—and these energetic shifts are accelerating. Irrational behavior, desperation and feelings of utter hopelessness are on the rise. As the deterioration of both the ecosystem and interpersonal communications increase we anticipate even more cultural and social instability.

There is a growing sense among many that something is terribly wrong, and along with this is the feeling that there is no solution. In this instance we agree with something Albert Einstein once said, which is that the solution to a problem cannot be solved at the level of the problem.

From our perspective, the escalation of Chaotic Nodes is creating tidal waves of intense chaotic energies that many of you are finding difficult to contend with. Furthermore, your automatic reflexive ways of dealing with change are increasingly ineffective.

There is a fork in the road, so to speak, that you have entered both individually and collectively. One path from this fork will lead you into a type of madness and an inability to function in practical ways. For those who take this fork, escapism will be on the rise. Self-destruction both individually and collectively will also increase in this period.

Many of you who have an opportunity to transition out of third-dimensional reality into other dimensions will take it.

Without mincing words, to use one of your phrases, we would say you are entering one of the more difficult passages of planetary transformation.

At this fork in the road, one path leads to self-destruction, madness, despair and hopelessness while the other fork leads to a deeper connection with your interdimensional or spiritual nature. It is this fork in the road we wish to explore.

It is not an either/or proposition. Many of you who possess a transcendent and interdimensional or spiritual sense of yourself may find yourselves, from time-to-time, on the path to madness and self-destruction in spite of your self-knowledge.

This is because your 3-D reality is oscillating. And the rapid changes in your third-dimensional existence are accelerating at a faster rate than your biological organism might be capable of handling. The extreme stresses upon your biological nature must be dealt with if you wish to avoid the path to madness and self-destruction.

In its simplest terms the requirement to successfully make this passage through the escalation of Chaotic Nodes is deep authentic contact with your interdimensional or spiritual nature and the self-renewal that arises from such contact.

We are therefore sharing a sound meditation for this purpose. There are no complex geometries involved. There is nothing that needs to be done when engaging this sound meditation other than placing your awareness in your entire physical body.

The sound patterns are a direct transmission from the light realms into the language of your biology. It is a counter-force to the chaos and the confusion that is creating stress within your biological nature. It is short in length because many of you are time-stressed. You have too much to do in too little time because you are trying to hold the old world together as time accelerates. All we can say to you from our perspective is that holding the old world together is “mission impossible.” Letting go of the old world, and your attachment to how you think you need to be, is part of what is required to take the higher path.

Our suggestion is that you listen to this sound meditation as often as you wish and when you listen to the sound patterns, focus your awareness in the physical reality of your being (your physical body).

All that is required to successfully engage this sound meditation is to listen to it with awareness in your physical body and the cellular structure of your body will unwind and release stress and delusional states of perception giving you a greater possibility to enter a higher path.

We are calling this sound meditation The Elevatron, because the root of the word means to elevate, and it also refers to the electronic nature of your biological reality. This sound meditation is a direct transmission of energy from the light realms into the bioelectric, bio-chemical and quantum realities of your body for the purpose of elevating your vibratory rate in consciousness.

In the final analysis, your personal experience of the escalation of interlocking Chaotic Nodes will depend solely upon the vibratory resonance you have attained or failed to attain. The responsibility for this passage as an individualized being, embodied in time and space, is solely and completely your responsibility.

We wish you a good journey on the high road.

The Hathors
October 14, 2014


Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

In my opinion this is one of the more urgent messages the Hathors have ever given me due to the nature of the changes they “see” in our near future.

When I asked them about the title they chose for this message, their response was that we have entered an accelerated phase of planetary chaos, and we are both witnessing and living through the unraveling of third-dimensional reality as we have known it.

It just so happened that I received this message during the beginning stages of the Ebola crisis in the United States, which traces its origins to parts of Western Africa but is now spreading beyond political borders. I asked the Hathors about this, and they said the Ebola virus is just the tip of what is to come as a result of environmental changes. Specifically they said that new viruses and bacteria, hitherto unknown to Western medicine, are being introduced into the environment due to de-forestation and complex changes in the ecosystem that our sciences have yet to identify. Furthermore, the Hathors say that many viruses and bacteria are mutating and will continue to do so at an accelerated rate. Some of these mutations will make medical treatment problematic and difficult in the coming years.

While this is a scary proposition, the Hathors reminded me that the purpose of life, at least from their perspective, is not physical survival per se, but rather the evolution and elevation of interdimensional awareness—what some might call the soul, the Atman or the Indestructible Drop.

While they could have gone more deeply into the details of our degrading ecosystem and the challenges around interpersonal communications (both between individuals and nations), they chose to address the challenges facing us as individuals.

They are concerned that the stress of living through a radical alteration of 3D reality is creating and will continue to create, what they call maladaptive madness, meaning a mental/emotional instability that will decrease our capacity to respond to changing realities in a resourceful manner. In its more intense forms, people will just flat-out lose their minds and engage in all types of bizarre self-destructive behaviors. When I asked the Hathors about this further, they said that we are actually only in the beginning phase of interlocking Chaotic Nodes and that barring some unforeseen force we are in for a global free-fall, the likes of which we cannot begin to imagine.

By global-free fall, they do not mean an end to the world, but they do infer an end to the world as we have known it. And this morphing into new realities is occurring all around us on multiple levels and at a mind-boggling rate of speed.

This free-fall is what they referred to when they said that we are individually and collectively at a fork in the road, meaning at a choice-point. The choice-point is whether we succumb to chaotic forces or rise upward into greater coherency despite what seems to be happening within and around us.

The Elevatron

The Elevatron sound meditation is meant to assist us through the current passage that is, by the Hahors’ own estimation, one of the more difficult phases of planetary transformation.

When they discussed the effects of this particular sound meditation they said: “the cellular structure of your body will unwind and release stress and delusional states of perception.” What they meant by this enigmatic statement is that The Elevatron reduces stress reactions in the body, and in their view overly stressful reactions create delusional states of mind. In other words, when we are excessively stressed our mental/emotional perspective is twisted and we respond to situations in our lives from a less resourceful state than when we are not unduly stressed.

I think the Hathors’ description of how to work with this sound meditation is self-explanatory so I won’t discuss it further other than to say that I think it is best if you listen to this sound meditation with stereo headphones or ear buds. Furthermore, hearing is believing. And if the meditation “speaks” to you, I would incorporate into your daily stress management program. If it doesn’t resonate with you, then I wouldn’t work with it. But whether you choose to work with this sound meditation or not, I think it would be prudent to use some method to re-center yourself mentally/emotionally and spiritually on a daily basis.

Having sensed the strong energetic feelings coming from the Hathors as I received this message, I am reminded of something my 9th grade Algebra teacher liked to say to our class whenever we entered a more complex arena of math: “It’s gonna get worse before it gets better.”

Finally, how you and I respond to the challenges of interlocking Chaotic Nodes and the radical alteration of our 3D reality is—and will be—solely and completely our own personal responsibility. No one is going to save us from ourselves.

While the tone of this message is indeed alarming, I think we would do well to keep intact, and by our side, a good sense of humor. As the American writer, Mark Twain, once quipped—some things in life are so serious all you can do is laugh.

In my experience, this type of humor arises from a realization that this world is, in many ways, illusory. And while the embodied human being aspect of us has to contend with the realities of a changing 3D reality, the transcendent or spiritual part of us is outside the fray because it is in a dimension that transcends time/space and the gravity well of Earth.

Somewhere between these two polarities—human embodiment and transcendent freedom—there is an amusing place in consciousness. Finding this amusing space is, in my opinion, an indispensable ally for those of us in search of the high road.

May you and your loved ones, as well as all beings in all realms of existence, find an expeditious way to the higher path.

New Workshop CDs now available:

We have added two new sets of workshop recordings to the Store: The Art of Egyptian High Alchemy and Entering the Mandala: A Chitananada Tantra Retreat. These recordings are now available as CDs and/or mp3 audio downloads.

The Art of Egyptian High Alchemy
I am delighted to offer these workshop recordings from The Art of Egyptian High Alchemy because they present new personal insights and unusual teachings regarding the use of spiritual alchemy to attain ascended states of consciousness.  This unique approach to the ancient art of Egyptian High Alchemy includes The BAROD, a psycho-acoustic meditation that activates your connection to your own Celestial Soul (the BA) and a mythic excursion into the feminine and restorative mysteries of the night-sky goddess, Nut. The combination of these approaches makes this workshop a very powerful catalyst for personal transformation via the system of Egyptian High Alchemy. This set includes seventeen mind-expanding sound meditations. Click here.

Entering the Mandala: A Chitananda Tantra Retreat
Chitananda Tantra is a culmination of my many years of study and explorations in BonPo Shamanism, Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism/Daoism and the yogas of ancient India. It is a system of inner tantra (energy practices for the mind) that is an elegant and highly effective method to attain self-liberation, or Enlightenment, without the need to embrace any particular philosophy or spiritual tradition.

Chitananda Tantra accomplishes this extraordinary feat through the art of training your brain/mind to enter blissful and self-liberating states of awareness. These unusual states of body/mind give you direct access to your own transcendent nature (or bodhicitta), which is unbounded by time, place or circumstance. The fourteen powerful sound meditations that comprise this unique form of tantra will generate profound transformations for novices and advanced practitioners alike. Click here.

A New Addition to the Listening Section of the website:

A new sound meditation called Lament For Whales has been posted in the Listening section of the website. You can find the sound meditation by going to the Listening section at www.tomkenyon.com. Simply scroll down the titles until you find Lament For Whales.


The Movie “The Song of the New Earth”

As you may know, for over three years I allowed a film crew to follow me and interview me around the world. Many of you paid for this film because you wanted to see a movie about my work, which is sound and teaching. The movie is complete and many of you may have already seen it. For whatever reason, most of the teaching was removed in the movie version that is being screened. However, the Extended DVD contains the complete movie and more footage of me teaching, as well as longer toning sessions that are not in the movie. From my perspective it is an excellent introduction to my work and the power of sound. In fact, the title is “Song of the New Earth, Tom Kenyon and the Power of Sound.”

I receive nothing monetarily from the movie itself, but I do receive something from the DVDs that we sell in the Store on our own website. If you wish to support me I encourage you to buy the DVD directly from us. We are told it will be available sometime in November, and we will place it in the Store as soon as we have it in stock. If you signed up to receive notices from me, you will get an email as soon as the DVD is made available to us. If you wish to sign up for notices and/or my future calendar, go to the Contact tab on our website (www.tomkenyon.com).

Finally, I had intended to write a personal letter of thanks to all the many contributors who made the movie possible through their gracious donations to Woody Creek Pictures and Sophia Films. Since the Director and Producer have refused to give me access to your names and email addresses, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your generosity. I do believe the movie will open many hearts and minds.
