Trofimov, MDby Carol Hiltner Why You Should Unlearn Almost Every 'Spiritual' Thing You Know Michelle Walling, In5D GuestWaking Times Have you found yourselves awakened and confused as hell about what the truth is? Part of the matrix plan is to provide various teachings of how to move your consciousness into a higher level of the astral realm where you will not realize that you are still in the hierarchical prison system. Thankfully, even utter confusion can be a catalyst to finally realizing that most metaphysical, esoteric, and spiritual based information readily available in major bookstores is misleading and unnecessary.
Sound Meditation for Escalation of Chaotic Nodes and the Dismantling of 3-D Reality Tom Kenyon A Hathor Planetary Message Through Tom Kenyon Due to time-acceleration and cosmic forces far beyond your control you are in the midst of a crescendo of interlocking Chaotic Nodes.

How to Develop the Four Primary Skills of All Meditation Paul Cavel, ContributorWaking Times Emancipation or freedom from slavery and bondage is ultimately what the human spirit craves. From the perspective of your spirit, slavery encompasses how the attachments in your life—such as sex, material items, money, power and all that they bring—prevent you from being free. Bondage has to do with the ways in which your ego (or collection of identities) and your karmic loops bind you into the reality you experience, and thereby limit your human growth. So the question is: How can you free your spirit and, in so doing, realise your human potential?
The Psychic World of Stanley Krippner: A quest to document ESP Illustration by MEAR ONE. June, 1970: an interesting time. Behind the scenes at the Grateful Dead Festival Express tour: an interesting place. But if you want to see something really interesting, stroll past the roadies, the groupies, the freaks. Buttonhole the clean-cut, older guy in a suit. His name: Stanley Krippner. Fire in the Belly: Manipura Chakra, Turning Power Into Peace Christina Sarich, Contributing WriterWaking Times The Famous psychologist, Carl Jung, once said that Manipura chakra is where we burn through our passions and desires in order to become a completely realized individual. This chakra is the third in the system of seven conceptualized by Ayurvedic and yogic doctrines, and is also associated to Tiferet in the kabbalistic understanding of the Tree of Life. In the systems of marital arts, including Qigong, the solar plexus chakra, is also called the personal power chakra. It is no mistake that the expression, ‘fire in the belly’ relates to the physical location of this energy center since it is like a little sun that radiates pranic energy to the rest of the physical body. Due to the energy of Manipura chakra, the internal organs can function properly, but even more important, perhaps, is the regulation of pranic energy for the development of the psychological and emotional self on the way to realizing one’s full potential.
