An Introduction to the Seven Universal Soul Archetypes

Just as there are seven hues in a rainbow, our souls cast light as through a prism to embody seven soul archetypes. These soul archetypes — at least for purposes of this discussion — can be thought of as quintessential models of distinct and specific patterns of spiritual existence.
A soul group is a collective of spiritual entities that incarnate together for the purpose of higher learning. Each of us belongs to a soul group associated with one of the seven soul archetypes, and each of us has a unique role to play within this collective. We choose roles in our lives as a means of casting ourselves in parts played on a universal stage for our soul’s progression.

The seven soul archetypes are:

The Server
The Scholar
The King
The Priest
The Sage
The Warrior
The Artisan

The Server (or Saint) represents about one quarter of the global population; there are more Severs on Earth than any other soul archetype at this time. Servers have a natural drive to serve the greater good and to embody the qualities of service, support, and nurturing. They posses an innate capacity for service that many souls aspire to. Of all the soul archetypes, even in the early phases of development, the Server takes to earthly life more naturally than the other soul archetypes. In the positive polarity Servers are the most saintly, grounded, and altruistic of these archetypes. However, in the negative polarity, the Server may fall into situations of enslavement, self-neglect, and/or martyrdom. Servers innate desire to serve often makes them very valued and effective leaders of their communities, but most will find their purpose and joy closer to home.

Scholars have an intrinsic ability to assimilate and integrate information on any topic that interests them, and the source that nourishes their understanding can be virtually anything: library and scientific research, travel, participant observation, or contemplation and meditation. Scholar souls learn not only in an academic sense but also with respect to inner world perspectives. Scholars are the only neutral soul archetype; they tend to be less proactive in the outside world, more thinkers than doers. While Scholars can adopt a more extroverted lifestyle when it suits them, they usually prefer a more introverted one. A young Scholar may be arrogant, impractical, or easily lost in details; conversely, the mature Scholar evolves to develop knowledge and wisdom from meaningful life experiences and seeks to be useful to the greater good in some capacity.

King souls are natural born leaders even when they are not in actual positions of power throughout life. King souls often possess an intrinsic talent for tactics, orchestration, and understanding derived from broad perspective. Kings may be presidents or paupers, but no matter the role they find themselves playing, a King soul will always be found leading the pack. The young King soul can be tyrannical, autocratic, and arrogant, using others for personal gain, while the mature King (a positively polarized soul) is often responsible, empathetic, and empowering. They lead by example and inspire others to work together for the greater good.

Priest souls are often born with a deep calling to make the world a better place and to be a source of inspiration to others. More than any other soul archetype, the Priest has a keen sense of when things are going wrong and of how to inspire others to unite and make things right again. In the negative polarity, a Priest soul can be prone to self-righteousness, dogma, mania, and tyranny. (Adolf Hitler would be such an example of a young Priest soul such as this.) However, when they are of positive polarity, a more evolved and mature Priest will tend to embody higher qualities such as unconditional love, empathy, charity, compassion, and understanding. Due to the deep level of commitment most Priest souls have to their causes, many find themselves serving in roles of spirituality, religion, or philosophy. Any role where the Priest has an opportunity to awaken others to their
higher purpose is a good fit for this soul archetype.

Sages are expression oriented souls and natural born entertainers that posses a quick wit, charisma, and in the mature phase of their development (incarnation), wisdom. Sages are usually most interested in engaging an audience and view the world as their stage. In their earlier stages of development, Sages may be egocentric, obnoxious or play the fool. The wise Sage however, is one who brings their life experiences and heartfelt philosophical insights to others through their performance art. Due to the Sage soul’s constant urge to share their wisdom with the world at large, they will often be found in roles that place them on stage, such the story teller, the actor/actress, the comedian, the musician, the philosopher or the politician. In fact, many famous politicians and philosophers aspired to be Sages.

Warriors embody qualities of courage, awareness, discipline, and determination, and later in their development, they grow to embody compassion and love. While the innate drive of a warrior soul is oriented towards taking action and rising to challenges in order to uphold that which they value, the shadow aspects of this archetype, typically found in young warriors , typically lead them to adopt the idea that the ends justify the means; thus, acts of coercion and oppression through intimidation and violence may come to pass. As Warriors mature, they learn to adopt and amplify the more positive aspects of this archetype — courage, effectiveness, and a strong sense of stewardship — while also being respectful, supportive, loving, forgiving, and inspiring.

Artisans are visionaries with an innate aptitude for creative expression and inventiveness; they manifest their visions into physical reality. Artisans often spend a lot of time in their imaginations and their inner worlds, and they typically require more downtime than others in order to remain grounded and at their best. The shadow aspects of the young Artisan, driven by ego, tend to manifest through dissociative behavior, obsessive-compulsive behavior, delusional thinking, and addiction, or through deceitful schemes for personal gain. In contrast, the light aspects of the mature Artisan, driven by the soul, are usually expressed through ingenuity and inventiveness for the benefit and enjoyment of the others and the advancement of greater good.

Please bare in mind that not one soul archetype is better or less than another. These roles we embody are simply various ways of exploring and developing our being; they are not measures of our importance. Some are born able to intuit their own soul archetype. For most however, it is not until mid-life that our true essence becomes more apparent.

I now invite you to go deeper and to explore what is at the core of your soul’s focus, as it is the common thread that unites all of our incarnations.
Peace and love,

Ascension Mastery Through the Twelve Universal Laws

Through our many lifetimes, the aim of everyone who incarnates on schoolhouse Earth is spiritual ascension. Just prior to our arrival, we are tasked by our higher self to learn and master a set of lessons — both individual and collective — created to assist us in our awakening process. Often our soul will have us to return to Earth to experience similar situations and relationships in order for us to resolve our challenges and ancestral karma.

Everything in our universe is made of energy, and governing it are twelve Universal Laws that deal with this spiritual energy, much like our laws of physics.

Our understanding and employment of these laws enable us to see the underlying mechanisms of our universe and to become successful co-creators of our own reality. The importance of these principles stems from the ubiquity of their relevance in our lives.

1. The Universal Law of One
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of One is that all is One, and that all things that exist are ultimately of the same consciousness within many forms and configurations. We are currently in the fourth density of planet Earth, which is the density for mastering this Universal Law. As we come to understand this Law, we come to know that our every action, thought, and choice has a corresponding effect in the collective consciousness as well as our own individual lives.

2. The Universal Law of Relativity
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Relativity is everything is relative and everything we experience in the physical world manifests through our comparison of it to something else. One would be unable to define light without being able to compare it to darkness, unable to define unconditional love without first experiencing the absence of love. Comprehension of this principle also provides one with the ability to view one’s trials and tribulations from a higher perspective, as it demonstrates that all that is needed in order to change one’s experience of reality is to shift one’s perspective.

3. The Universal Law of Perpetual Transformation                                          The guiding principle of the Law of Perpetual Transformation is that all Universal energy or consciousness is in a constant state of movement and change through the application of the twelve Universal Laws. It is through learning this principle one understands that positive thoughts, emotions, and actions transform lower vibrational energies into higher forms (and vice versa).

4. The Universal Law of Compensation
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Compensation is intertwined with the Universal Law of Cause and Effect, or Karma. This law states that the Universe compensates for every action equal to the energy we invest. It is when when we are compensated (for better or worse) for our deeds and actions; we reap what we sow.

5. The Universal Law of Vibration
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Vibration is that all things that exist in the Universe consist of pure light energy and possess their own vibrational frequency; this includes all matter, thought, emotion, and consciousness. The reality we create is a reflection of our dominant vibration, i.e., the feelings and thoughts
we dwell upon habitually; therefore we only attract relationships, situations and environments with which we are vibrationally in resonance.

6. The Universal Law of Attraction
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Attraction is that the energies produced by all of our thoughts, emotions and actions attracts like energies in return. This is how catalytic situations, events, and relationships manifest into our lives. Positive energies attract positive energies, and negative energies attract negative ones. As with all of the Universal Laws, this principle applies to both individual and collective consciousness.

7. The Universal Law of Correspondence
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Correspondence is that everything in the physical world has a corresponding counterpart in the etheric. All that one experiences in one’s external reality is a direct reflection of one’s inner-world. (Hence the saying, “As above, so below.”)

8. The Universal Law of Cause and Effect
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Cause and Effect, also known as Karma in Buddhist philosophy, is the idea that for every action, thought, spoken word, and emotion, there is an equal reaction or consequence, which must manifest in the physical world.

9. The Universal Law of Action
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Action is that one must take some action in alignment with their goals and desires in order for them to manifest in one’s own reality.

10. The Universal Law of Polarity
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Polarity explains that there are two poles within everything in the universe; everything has an opposite. This principle is well demonstrated through such manifestations as light and dark, the divine masculine and the divine
feminine, yin and yang, hot and cold, and love and hate. It is only through understanding this principle that one can make a conscious choice regarding with which polarity one prefers to align along one’s spiritual path.

11. The Universal Law of Rhythm
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Rhythm is that everything in the universe moves to specific rhythms much like a pendulum swing which establish all cycles of development. This law can be observed in cycles, such as our cycles of life and death, the seasons, the tides, planetary cycles, astrological cycles, the
economies, and the feminine and masculine reproductive cycles. (Yes, the masculine has its own reproductive cycle…) The key to mastering this law is to find our center and balance.

12. The Universal Law of Gender
The guiding principle of the Universal Law of Gender governs all of creation and manifests as masculine and feminine qualities throughout everything that exists in our Universe. To master this principle is to know how to be a whole and harmonious being within our collective.

I hope this article will ignite a desire within to deepen your understanding of these Twelve Universal Laws to support you in your highest Transformation.

Peace and love,

Joy

A Synopsis of the Ra Material: The Law of One Book Series

Just prior my reading the Ra Material: The Law of One five book series several years ago, synchronistically I came across an exceptionally thorough and well-written synopsis of the five book series published on the website Wikipedia, which unfortunately is no longer to be found to this day (reason for its deletion is unknown and author unknown).  I found this synopsis to be very helpful as a precursor in my studies of the Law of One as taught by Ra in this series. Fast forward to present time, I myself felt drawn to providing such a synopsis for those fellow seekers that are new to the material to help them feel more grounded with teachings from the onset. I hope you find the following synopsis to be supportive and helpful in your future studies.

The RA Material: The Law of One, is a series of five philosophical monographs published between 1982 and 1998 by Schiffer Books.
In the early eighties these books were authored by a non-human multidimensional being named Ra through the process of trance channeling, in which Don Elkins acted as the questioner, Jim McCarty as the scribe and Carla L. Rueckert as the channel for Ra. The dialogue between Don Elkins and Ra was recorded, transcribed, and edited by Jim McCarty to produce the five books.
The five book series presents both commentary and full transcripts of the dialogue between the questioner and Ra, who is described as a being composed of an entire civilization of extraterrestrial beings that are fused into one unified consciousness (a social memory complex is a term used by Ra for a unified consciousness group).
The introduction to the first book explains that the questioner is Don Elkins and that Ra is a higher density being (of higher consciousness). A sixth density life form of pure energy speaking through the body of trance channeler Carla L. Rueckert.
Carla L. Rueckert transmitted the material by entering into a non-conscious state (which the authors refer to as an unconscious trance) where she became a communication channel for Ra in order for them to communicate to our level of reality (our vibration) and answer the questions posed by Don Elkins. The answers were interpreted to be direct communications with Ra, which is in line with standard views on trance channeling. The books are written in a question and answer format.
The Law of One is one of twelve universal principles according to a basic principle that all is One, that all things that exist are ultimately the same essence within many forms and configurations. The philosophy of The Law of One describes the big questions of life: why, how and where everything that exists comes from. As well as its place within the manifest of Creation. The five books explore this premise in relation to many aspects of life including philosophy, religion, spirituality, cosmology, anthropology, history, politics, physics, biology, geology, and the paranormal. The dialogues have been cited to some as a convergence of ufology and trance channeling where a human channeler is aligned with or in resonance with Ra, thus being able to act as a receiver for the vibrations (higher-wisdom/knowledge) emitted by the 6th density intelligence. The material describes, that Ra is a highly advanced race of multidimensional extraterrestrials who once visited ancient Egypt and assisted with the construction of the pyramids.
In these books, Don Elkins, a Ph.D. physicist, university professor, and airline pilot found the apex of his lifetime of research into the UFO phenomenon through telepathic contact with extraterrestrial intelligence.
For twenty years he had been working with various gifted individuals who would go into trance and speak on behalf of this higher intelligence. And time after time, Dr. Elkins would ask them the most difficult, challenging questions coming from the forefront of his research into advanced physics, and he would get the answers.
These answers were repeatedly coming from those who had no knowledge of these things while conscious. It was at the end of this twenty-year period that Elkins’ work with Carla Rueckert broke through to a much more substantial level.
This breakthrough was directly precipitated by the arrival of Jim McCarty, who thought that he was coming to help Don and Carla catalog, categorize and organize the volumes of material that they had already produced. Instead, something totally unexpected happened.
They attracted a true master of the higher realms, perhaps the main group responsible for our care: a huge spiritual group of entities, that called itself Ra, and said that they were from the sixth density level of spiritual evolution, million and millions of years more advanced than humans today.
As soon as Ra began speaking they made it clear that this was the first time that they had been able to get through an undistorted series of messages in thousands of years of human history.
The words and concepts were highly sophisticated and precise, unlike any other type of channeled material ever seen, and were referred to by one professor as akin to a Ph.D. dissertation on epistemology.

Contents of the RA Material: Law of One:

1.2 Densities
1.3 Life
1.4 Tarot & Archetypal Mind
1.5 Influence
2 References

The book series articulates a non-dualistic philosophy according to which all things both spring from and are one with the source of the universe, termed The One Infinite Creator.
Within The Law of One, The Creator is not described as an external entity, as Earthly religious texts present in order for men to understand. Instead, The Creator is rather an all-pervasive intelligent energy, that is both within everything that exists and without, thus the indivisible oneness that the philosophy describes. Underlying the perception of separation, utilized for learning, is an indivisible oneness.
The Law of One states that this universe, one of many, was created by the One Infinite Creator—out of itself—by distorting its energy into the parts of existence called distortions. The process occurred one distortion at a time, in a specific order.
The first distortion created by the Creator is called Free Will.
The second is Love.
And the third is Light.
All other substance and form come from an interaction of these three distortions. Akin to a hologram or a fractal, each part of the creation is also the whole.
As Ra uses the word, the distortion of Light can be taken to mean: energy/matter and knowledge/wisdom.

Cosmology: Ra describes each galaxy as a creation of an intelligence called a Logos. The Logos creates many sub-Logoi, star systems (ie: stars and planets). One sub-Logos would be our Sun, for example. Another would be our planet Earth, another planet Venus, Jupiter and so on and so forth. The sub-Logoi, in turn, create sub-sub-Logoi. Human beings are an example of sub-sub-Logoi. Each Logos, sub-Logos, and sub-sub-Logos is a microcosm of the Creator. The Logos created seven levels of progression for spiritual evolution and Ra has called each of these levels a density.
Even more importantly, this cosmology is not simply in the realm of lofty speculation – for all intents and purposes, Ra was systematically teaching Dr. Elkins about a whole new form of physics, a new form of understanding the way that the Universe functions, rooted in compassion, harmony, and wisdom.

Densities: Commentators have interpreted densities in a variety of ways. Some have described it as a dimension, as in a higher dimension of experiential reality. A density differs markedly from the Cartesian notion of dimension.
According to Ra different densities are associated with different levels/forms of consciousness and different phenomenological ways of being.
The first density is the density of the elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire) (In scientific terms: solids, liquids, gases, and plasma).
The second density is the density of organic life: plants, animals, bacteria, etc.
The third density is the density which human beings inhabit. It is the density of self-awareness. It is also the density of duality, through which the individual chooses their polarity of service.
The fourth density is the density of love or understanding. And like all subsequent densities, the density of love is inhabited by mind/body/spirit complexes of a higher level of spiritual evolution than human beings on present day Earth.
The fifth density is the density of light or wisdom. Wherein long and deep contemplation and introspection are practiced so that one’s own wisdom may spring forth and the entity may become refined to an even higher degree.
The sixth density is the density of unity consciousness, where love and wisdom are united and where all other polarities are united. In Earth history, sixth density is the density that archangels come from, as described in various texts.
The seventh density is the gateway density, the last density before mind/body/spirit complexes merge back into the Creator.
The eighth density is the beginning of the next octave. Where the journey begins again.
Ra tells us that humans are composed of a mind, a body, and a spirit, and therefore would refer to an individual human as a mind/body/spirit complex. Ra says that humans, along with the Earth, are going through a process called harvest. This included statements that there are many other living beings in the universe that are similar to humans but differ in the body, intelligence, culture, and spiritual evolution. These beings, like humans, are referred to as mind/body/spirit complexes.
Ra describes that individuals from other densities have incarnated on Earth to contribute to the harvest.
Ra expressed that all mind/body/spirit complexes, after being formed in third density, progress upward through the densities as they evolve spiritually until they become one with the Creator at the end of seventh density.
This evolution is accomplished through incarnation into a body. Many times, until the soul has completed the lessons relevant to each density. Incarnation only occurs within 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th density. A physical body is no longer necessary beyond the end of 4th density. From 5th density and beyond, the body is purely energetic in nature.
In order to progress from third density to fourth density, individuals must make a choice between two polarities of service. Service to others or service to self: or in ordinary language, between altruism and selfishness. The purpose of third density is to make this choice. The purpose of experiencing the sometimes harsh environment of 3rd density, no matter which location in the universe, is for each soul to make this choice of service and thus progress.
As entities evolve, they progressively balance and unblock their energy centers which directly correspond to the chakras. The Law of One series includes an extensive discussion of these energy centers.

Each energy center is associated with a color and a corresponding Hindu chakra:

Muladhara is called red-ray.
Svadhisthana is called orange-ray.
Manipura is called yellow-ray.
Anahata is called green-ray.
Vishuddhi is called blue-ray.
Ajna is called indigo-ray.
Sahasrara is called violet-ray

Additionally to this, humanity and the Earth are undergoing a transition from third density to fourth density. This transition is linked to a process called harvest. This involves a quantum leap within our physical reality, said to occur approximately 30 years from the time of the 1981 Ra dialogues. One of the dialogues mentions a general time frame of 100 to 700 years for transition on Earth from third density to fourth density.
Moral choices are discussed through the concept of polarity. Ra explains that there are two polarities: service to self, and service to others. These two polarities approximately relate to the everyday concepts known as light and dark, evil and good, or selfishness and altruism.
Service to Others is described in terms of an energy center configuration where the green-ray center radiates out toward other beings. This results in compassion, love feelings, and acts of service toward others.
Service to Self is described in terms of an energy center configuration where the green-ray center is pointed mainly inward. This energy center configuration causes the entity to feel love for itself, but not for others. These feelings lead to self-serving intentions and actions, or service to self.
Ra views the Earth as a living being that has a mind, free will, and grows over time both physically and spiritually. He explains that the Earth is currently in the process of changing from third density to a fourth-density planet.

Tarot & Archetypal Mind: A big part of the series covers the (intuitive) study of the local Logos’ archetypes, which are highly reminiscent of the work of Carl Jung. Ra states the Tarot system originates from Ra’s home planet, Venus, when Ra’s civilization was at 3rd density level, long ago, and that the Major Arcana of the Tarot was used as a general referent and means of studying one’s own progress. Originally, the Major Arcana was just a conglomerate of archetypal images that were supposed to be memorized. It is only later, when introduced to Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations, that the Tarot system came to get settled into the card format it is today.
The Archetypes are divided into three groups (1. Mind 2. Body 3. Spirit) of seven with the twenty second archetype being the same as the zeroth, which Ra names The Choice.                                                                                      

Influence: The book series centers around the harvest, which is described as a major spiritual and physical change that will occur on Earth around the year 2011. Consider year of channeling session where Harvest is mentioned whilst adding thirty years as mentioned in session #6 of the book series (shown below).

“6.17 Questioner: Is this inconvenience imminent within a few years?”
“Ra: I am Ra. This inconvenience, or disharmonious vibratory complex, has begun several of your years in the past.
It shall continue unabated for a period of approximately three oh, thirty, of your years.
(Editor’s note: January 24th, 1981 + 30 = 2011)”
“6.18 Questioner: After this thirty-year period I am assuming we will be a fourth-dimension or fourth-density planet.
Is this correct?”
“Ra: I am Ra. This is so.” – Social Memory Complex Ra, Law Of One Series, Session 6, Questions 17 & 18 – http://www.llreaserch.org

The harvest was one of the earliest mentions in modern times relating to the eschatological 2012 phenomenon.
The Law of One book series has influenced many published authors, in various fields. New York Times bestselling author David Wilcock has cited in his books and lectures the Ra Material: Law of One book series as seminal in the formation of his understanding of the nature of reality as well as the cause and drive for higher understanding.
The Law of One has been described as the most widely cited set of channeled materials and it has been influential in the development of spiritual concepts such as polarity, spiritual evolution through densities, and wanderers.

Ginger Bug for High Vibe Probiotic Sodas

A Homemade Ginger Bug Recipe

Ginger bug is an excellent starter culture for naturally fermented sodas. This is how most sodas were traditionally made by our great, great, grandmothers, except they were often referred to as tonics and/or fizzy drinks, and they were consumed due to their replenishing and restorative health benefits (such as for drinking as an electrolyte replacement after a long hot day working the farm, or for before or after a meal as a digestive) . The mixture of sugar, ginger, and water proliferates wild yeasts and beneficial bacteria, which can then be used as a starter culture in your natural homemade sodas (such as in ginger ale, root beer, lemon, cream and other fruit sodas).

This starter culture is easy to store, and very easy to continue growing in order to have it readily available for use.

ginger-819694_640

Ginger Bug Ingredients:

1-2 fresh organic fresh ginger roots (sliced into about 1 1/2 inch pieces, or about 2-3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger)

2 cups filtered unchlorinated water

1/2 cup whole unrefined organic cane sugar (the only type of caloric sweetener that will be effective in making this recipe is sugar. The sugar, bacteria and yeast need it to proliferate. Most of the sugar is consumed by the beneficial microorganisms in the culture).

1 quart Mason jar (please be certain to use a true Mason jar or a fermenting grade jar)

Instructions:

Place the ginger in your Mason jar and add an equal amount of white sugar (about 2-3 tablespoons).

Pour 2 cups of filtered water into the Mason jar. Please do not use water that contains chlorine and other chemicals which will be harmful to the fermenting process and your health.

Stir well with a non-metal spoon, and cover jar with a cheese cloth, or with an unbleached coffee filter, and secure with a rubber band.

Place in a warm spot to ferment (72-80°F) for 24 hours.

Every day for the next week add 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of diced or grated ginger. After about 4-5 days the liquid will begin to bubble towards and around the top of the jar. Once there are bubbles forming at the top of the mixture (usually after about 7-8 days) the ginger bug ready for use!

A Note about Mold:

During the fermenting process, if mold appears on the top, it can be removed by gently scraping it off with a non-metal spoon. It this happens more than once, it is time to start over. Also,  if the mixture hasn’t fermented and taken on the above characteristics by the 7-8th day, please discard it and try again.

For those fermenting other cultures concurrently in the same area as their ginger big, please be sure to keep the culture away from other cultures (such as kefir, kombucha or sauerkraut) to avoid cross culturing.

READY FOR USE! 

Once the ginger bug has cultured, it can be used to create fermented sodas and drinks at the ratio of 1/4 cup ginger bug starter per quart of sweetened natural mixtures.

To keep starter culture alive and to continue growing it, it will need to be fed 1 teaspoon of minced ginger and 1 teaspoon sugar per day if kept at room temperature. You can also store (or rest) the culture in the refrigerator and feed it 1 tablespoon each of ginger and sugar once a week. To reactivate,  just remove and allow it reach room temperature and begin feeding it again.

A High Vibe Pro-Tip:

Cultures are alive! I like to infuse the areas where I store my cultures and ferment batches with lots of clear and loving energy in order to infuse the “mother” cultures and ferments with the highest vibrational energies possible. Often I will do this by placing crystals I am drawn to (such as my favorite piece of rose quartz which embodies motherly love) around the cultures, and by saying a loving mantra over them daily. Feel free to be intuitive and creative with this part of the process and to make it your own!

Yours in bliss,

Joy

You Shall Not Pass! -Understanding the Shadow-Self for Spiritual Ascension

IMG_1677

In the fantasy novel Lord of the Rings written by English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien, the wizard Gandalf follows a path to death and subsequent resurrection, transcending from his earthly persona as Gandalf the Grey to a purer, more evolved persona as Gandalf the White in a fashion parallel in many ways to the life accounts of many ascended masters throughout our history. As Gandalf the Grey, the old wizard struggles against his shadow-self deep within the Misty Mountains of Middle-Earth to overcome his challenges through defeating
his nemesis, the malevolent demon known as the Balrog. Gandalf shouts his mantra, “You shall not pass!” at the Balrog, but his words are as much part of his internal dialog as they are in defiance of his opponent. Following his victory over the creature and ascent to the highest peak, Gandalf is carried by the great eagle Gwaihir through the enchanted realm of Lothlorien and up in the heavens, where he is given a new staff and pristine white garments; he is transformed into Gandalf the White — the same soul existing at a higher spiritual density (ascension) — before he is returned to his original plane of existence to fulfill his mission in the great battle for Middle-Earth. Many of the characters from Tolkien’s saga go through through some decisive act of overcoming their own shadow-self to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.

Many religions and ancient spiritual traditions have symbolized their respective accounts of ascension experiences in ways much like this vignette from Lord of the Rings. Well-known examples include Jesus’ transformation to Christhood after he faced Satan in the desert, and Siddhartha’s transformation to the Rainbow Body of the Buddha after his temptation by the demon Mara.

According to author David R. Hawkins’ in his book, Transcending the Levels of Consciousness: The Stairway to Enlightenment, everything in the universe, including passing thought, is recorded forever in the timeless, uniformly present field of consciousness. Every instance and every thought that has ever occurred is equally available because the field iof consciousness exists beyond time and space. In Hawkins’
book, he also provides a Map of Consciousness, a practical and
pragmatic guide to understanding the evolutionary levels of
consciousness to be transcended in pursuit of spiritual advancement, enlightenment, or self-improvement. It also provides a pragmatic map of the obstacles (shadows) we need to overcome in order to achieve higher levels of consciousness.

Some such obstacles being:
Fear
Anger
Guilt
Shame
Attachment

A helpful method for ascending from the fourth to fifth dimension (a higher level of consciousness) is to move beyond the blockages of our shadow-selves, and to acknowledge and accept our own inner-obstacles. This is the final step on our stairway to Ascension. The emergence of the shadow-self is the direct manifestation of our fears and our illusion of separation from Creator and all that is. The existence of the shadow-self is, at best, ignored — and, at worst, completely denied — by most individuals. By our denial of the existence of our shadow-self, we resign ourselves to its mercy by neglecting our opportunity for conscious control over it. The first step in removing the blockages in our physical, mental, and astral bodies caused by the lower vibrations of our shadow-self, is to become aware of them and to accept them through curiosity rather than judgment.

Unless we have opened ourselves to the amount of unconditional love, self-awareness and understanding necessary to transform the negatively polarized aspects of ourselves, we are often led to what Catholics refer to as a “dark night of the soul” or what Twelve Step recovery programs call “rock bottom”. Needless to say, the road continues to become bumpier and bumpier until we begin to accept the qualities of our being we perceive as undesirable, in order to gain the self-awareness necessary to transcend them.

My Introduction to Channel 42, Part I

“The Answer to the Great Question… Of Life, the Universe and Everything… Is… Forty-two,’ said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.”

― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Are ET and UFO Sightings/Contact as Rare as We Think? 

For as long as I can remember I have had an inner-awareness that we couldn’t be alone in the Universe,  an unwavering knowing that we came from the stars. I never really required any hard proof for my belief, or the acceptance of this belief by others, as I was content in the knowing that all would be revealed in its own due time.

Over the years I have arrived at the conclusion that contact with an extraterrestrial craft or being is far more common place around the world (and has been for many decades) than many of us been led to believe.

Thanks to the increasing number of mainstream and alternative outlets producing quality content around these topics, such as by the Gaia Consciousness Network , and grassroots projects such as the People on the Street project  by Bridget Nielsen and Gabe Solomon, these topics are being brought out of the shadows and the giggle factor removed. This has caused a profound ripple effect in the number of people increasingly feeling more comfortable in coming forward and discussing such topics openly.

Personally, I do not find my own ET contact and UFO sighting stories to be all that extraordinary. However, if sharing my story along with any other personal experiences that could assist others in normalizing and gaining more clarity around their own experiences, then that in itself makes putting this part of my story out there completely worth while in my view. Here are a few of  of my earliest experiences…

Somewhere in Sonoma

About 22 years ago I received a call from a friend asking if we would like to go with him to investigate a rumor that he had heard about a mysterious a UFO craft landing imprint somewhere off Sonoma Mountain Road.  Since I knew my back roads around the area better than most, and we were already a little bored that afternoon we decided to take off on a little adventure.

Much to our surprise, sooner than later, we did stumble upon the site we were looking for. It was in a small field of dry grass behind a private residence, completely visible from the road side.

The imprint was in the shape of a triangle, and it appeared as though a tri-pod type of craft had landed and scorched ground ground beneath into a perfect imprint of the shape of the craft. Since this was long before celluar camera phones were common place we were unable to capture this phenomenon.

Based on what I know today, I suspect the imprint we saw was from craft that was likely a secret space program ship as talked about by whistle-blower, Corey Goode; lower level space technology.

The Mysterious Lights of North Bay Coast 

A majority of the other UFO related sightings I have encountered were while driving through the coastal foothills of Sonoma and Marin County. particularly near the town of Point Reyes, California, around the late Nineties.

Numerous times while driving at night, I have witnessed mysterious bright lights flying in the sky, which did not move like any conventional air craft known to us at that time, or at present.

Theese lights appeared to fly with some sort of anti-gravity technology. At times they would appear to be aware of us, and to be following our path, and at others they appeared to be unaware or indifferent to our presence. As with the craft imprint I saw in Sonoma, to this day I am unsure what type of craft we were actually seeing. During some sightings there did appear to be intelligent interaction.

Something About You & My Introduction to Channel 42

Wheh I was about 7 years old, I had a dream which has stuck with me till this day…

I was standing on a highway facing North, and a furry little blue bipedal being was standing in front of me grinning. A popular song called Something About You, by the group Level 42 was playing in the background. The being was kind, and it simply stood there pointing North. I would not understand the significance of this dream until over 35 years later.

Then, about a couple years ago I began a relationship in psychic connection with a group of benevolent multidimensional higher-density beings I have come to know as “Channel 42”. In addition to telepathic communication, synchronicity was one of the forms of communication they used with me early on, particularly through the use of the number 42.

Synchronistically throughout the day and also in my dreams, the number 42, or a variations of 42, such as s 24 or 420 began appearing to me all over the place in various places (such as seeing 4:20 or 5:42 on a clock, or 42% battery power on my cell phone,  etc), during times which were personally significant.

I also feel it’s worthwhile mentioning that this synchronicity with the number 42 started long was before I was aware of the significance of the number 42, such as in ancient texts as the Bible and the Kabbalah.

I was aware of it’s appearance in the popular occult novel, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Admittedly, however, I didn’t make this connection until much later.

Here is an intriguing article about the number, along with a couple of other interesting links about the number 42 through out history.

42 Has Played a Significant Role in History

42 Letter Name of God

42 (Number – Wikipedia)

Not long after I began communication with Channel 42, I received a remote visitation from a small human/Grey hybrid girl.

Our first introduction was on a night of the 2016 Perseids meteor shower. I had come inside to retire for the evening and to meditate in before bed. After about five minutes or so of going into my usual meditation, what appeared to be young human/Gray hybrid girl came right into the forefront of my vision, as if she were standing right in front of my face, clear as day. I felt locked by her telepathically, and a very intense electrical energy pulsating through my third eye. I felt neither fear nor malevolence from her; however, I was taken aback by the intensity of her energy and by her sudden appearance. Then she disappeared as quickly as she appeared.

Later, I would be later shown by Channel 42 her connection to my soul-group and her reason for contacting me (upon which I will give more detail in Part II of this article), as well as the evolution of my relationship with these higher-dimensional entities.

I attempted to do a very rough illustration of the hybrid child I met to the best of my ability in the drawing below.

High Vibe Green Juice

Plants and food like all other things in our Universe have their own frequencies, and if we desire to raise our vibrations through such things as our diet, we should nourish our bodies with clean and wholesome high vibe food such as organic fruits and veggies and nutrient-dense cold pressed juice. When we begin doing so we increasingly become more self-aware of what things energize or depletes us.

The following recipe is for an energizing, detoxifying and alkalizing green juice to support you in living a vibrant, healthy, high vibration lifestyle.

* Please attempt source organic and non-GMO (genetically modified) ingredients when possible.

Just run the following ingredients through a juicer (preferably a cold-press juicer if possible in order to avoid some loss of enzymes and nutrients produced by the higher friction juicers, however, any juicer of your preference is fine) and enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 handful fresh cilantro (Cilantro is one of nature’s heavy metal detox powerhouses. Accumulation of heavy metals in the body can lead to dis-eases such as depression, chronic fatigue, insomnia, and chronic inflammation).

1 handful fresh parsley (Parsley has been used as a natural diuretic, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent for centuries. Fortunately however, today many studies back up health claims about parsley that traditional populations have believed for many years).

5 leaves of kale

5 celery stalks

1/4 lemon

1 inch fresh peeled ginger

1 orange or apple

1 medium cucumber

High Vibrational Living for Soul Ascension

Self care is one of the most selfless and powerfully transformative acts in the Universe. – Joy Jackson 

IMG_1894

Why High Vibrational Living for Soul Ascension?

Perhaps you have read or overheard people talking about attaining a higher vibration. If you are unclear about what this really means, or why it’s supposed to be important to you, in this article we are going to address both questions so that you will have a clearer understanding, and learn how to raise your frequency to make your life’s journey a smoother ride!

We attune to the frequencies of energies to which our mind, body, and spirit are in sync with vibrationally. When we are attuned to living in a state of high-frequency vibrational energy this has benefits beyond third-dimensional reality. In an incarnation, we have the potential to gain accelerated spiritual progression, the ability to manifest higher potentials more easily and to create energetic bodies that encourage others and the world around us to respond in positive ways.

Positive Energy Counter Acts Negative Energy

Positive energies counteract negative ones. Many people live with a constant undercurrent of stress, dissatisfaction and in a state of survival mode because our true nature and the reality of the Universe is still unknown to many people.

By living in a higher vibration, when we come into contact with a situation or person of lower vibration, we find it much easier to diffuse or to transmute the situation into a more positive one for all involved.

What Causes Low Vibrations?

Low vibrations are caused by such things as consuming highly processed, packaged, genetically modified, pesticide treated, or low nutrition foods, polluted water, excessive exposure to negative entertainment or media, lack of movement, fresh air, sunlight and exposure to nature. Also by attachment to negative thoughts and/or emotions such as fear, anger, despair, jealousy, guilt, shame, anger, criticism, and self-judgment.

Every thought, word, and action carry its own vibrational frequency.

IMG_1323

How to Raise Our Frequency 

*Not an exhaustive list.

Breathe: Noticing the rise and fall of our breath can help calm the mind, body and the spirit. Whether we choose to meditate or do breath work, going within and listening to the rise and fall of our inhale and exhale can help to raise our vibration.

Meditation: Similar to breath work, allowing our mind to tune out and listening to the stillness within our heart and breath can do miracles for our mood and our vibrational resonance. Whether we prefer more formal guided meditations or sitting in peace, the transformative effects of this practice extend beyond the physical, through energetic and spiritual levels.

Using positive affirmations, mantras, and cultivating positive thoughts.

Consume a high-vibrational diet: Consuming mostly organic, sun-based, plant-based, raw foods and clean water (spring water, and pure clean sources of filtered water when possible) naturally infuse your body with light energy. Organic plants are naturally in a high vibrational state and you can raise your vibration easily by consuming them. If animal products are consumed, they should be lovingly, humanely, respectfully and sustainably raised or sourced as possible.

Sunlight: Spending time in the sun will significantly increase our vibration. Strive for at least 20 minutes every day in the sunlight (sun gazing).

Spend time in outdoors and in nature: It has been scientifically shown that within a short time of being in nature our stress levels are significantly reduced. Even sounds of nature will raise our vibration. Walk barefoot on the earth, practice earthing. Breathe clean fresh air.

Music/Dance and listening to The Schumann resonance frequencies. The Schumann is the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electromagnetic field. It is also known to be foundational to human consciousness.

“One of the ‘secrets’ of the universe, is the creative application of sound frequencies. John Worley Keely discovered this creative use of musical frequencies in the late nineteenth century and accomplished amazing feats that defied conventional physics and confounded the academicians of his day.” – http://altered-states.net/barry/update205/

Mind/Body/Spirit Exercise: It’s not hard to understand that in order to raise our vibration, we must move our physical bodies and energy through our energetic bodies.  The more active we are and the more we move, the more energy begins to flow through our body. This flow of energy helps to raise our vibrational resonance and also helps to uplift our mind.

Get plenty of restorative rest and sleep… end the glorification of busy.

Detoxification: Detoxify our physical body daily through such practices as warm sea salt baths, organic green juicing, drinking lemon water, practicing yoga, sunbathing, saunas, or any other detoxification practice we are drawn to.

Avoid consumption of alcohol and toxic substances.

Get Creative: We are ‘Creators’! Find something that we are passionate about, love to do and that brings us joy and do more of it! When we are engaged and fulfilled in what we are doing, our mood elevates and our vibration does too. When we move into a creative space we also help to activate our chakras and calm our minds, creating awareness and expansiveness.

Practice Unconditional Love: Change the frequency of our energies to the vibration of unconditional of love. When talking about unconditional love, it’s not romantic or excessively intensive love, it’s an overall love for all that there is, because we are all one, including humanity, the animal kingdom and everything we see on Earth and within the Cosmos. By feeling connected and unconditional love for everyone and things, we are shining it back on ourselves. When talking about love, it’s not romantic or excessive or intense love, it’s an overall peaceful love for all that there is, as we are all one, including humanity, the animal kingdom and everything we see on Earth and within the Cosmos. By being love for all things, we shine it back on ourselves.

Practice Not Perfection 

This lifetime is another cycle of learning and discovery. Even if life seems challenging at times we are learning lessons that will contribute to the progression of our spirit and our soul’s mission. Even if we experience hard times, we are becoming wiser and closer to enlightenment. By living in positive vibrational energies, we are less far likely to become intangled in a web of issues and the dramas of those of others’.

When we exist in high vibrational frequencies, the world seems to flow and be easier for us to handle. Using love, acceptance, kindness, and tolerance as default emotions rather than frustration, fear, anxiety, and sadness, we can be far more grounded, at peace and resilient.

Our chakras will also undergo a clearing (unblocking) process and as a result, we gain self-discovery and spiritual advancement benefiting everyone due to the free flowing of these positive energies.

The spiritual advancement we gain in during this lifetime is greatly enhanced by living in a high energy vibration. It is a trait of the adept to approach all things with love and light, and knowing that each step is part of our learning and experience in this school house.

Living in the high vibration of light-love means that we experience, both giving and receiving, emotions such as respect, tolerance, kindness, care, compassion, joy, appreciation, empathy, sympathy, happiness, friendship and unconditional love itself. Little annoyances and inconveniences seem less important and easier to brush off and arise less frequently. A content feeling of knowing what really matters in life arises. We feel more radiant, healthier, not just mentally but physically as our chakras become unblocked and energy is free to flow throughout our mind/body/spirit complex, cleansing every part of our being.

When we are living in a high vibration it will transform the way we view ourselves and the world, and we may discover a lot of peace, beauty, and joy that alluded us before.
