The sixth chakra is often known as the Third Eye. However, according to the postulates of yoga (specifically those written by H. H. Mahatapaswi Shri Kumarswamiji) ,the pituitary gland of the sixth chakra and the pineal gland of the seventh chakra must join their essence in order to open the Third Eye.
The pituitary gland is about the size of a pea and is located behind the center of our forehead, between our eyes. Therefore, the sixth chakra is often called the Brow Chakra. The pituitary gland is known as the master gland because it acts as a main control center that sends messages to all the other glands from its two lobes, the posterior and the anterior. The pituitary gland prompts the proper growth of glands and organs and regulates sexual development.
The pituitary gland is called the “seat of the mind” with the frontal lobe regulating emotional thoughts such as poetry and music, and the anterior lobe regulating concrete thought and intellectual concepts. On the other hand, the pineal gland is known as the “seat of illumination, intuition and cosmic consciousness”. The pineal gland is to the pituitary gland what intuition is to reason.
The pineal gland is cone shaped and is located in the middle of the brain behind and just above the pituitary gland. The pineal gland contains pigment similar to that found in the eyes and is connected to the optic thalami, hence it controls the action of light upon our body. The pineal gland is located in the posterior end of the third ventricle of the brain and the pituitary gland is located in the roof of the third ventricle. It is said that the joining of the essences of these two glands in the third ventricle is what opens the Third Eye.
The pineal gland acts in two ways to inhibit the action of the pituitary gland. First, the pituitary gland is responsible for activating adolescence and the beginning of sexuality, and the pineal gland checks the pituitary gland to prevent premature sexual awakening. Second, human thought is regarded as a result of suspended action, and the pineal gland inhibits the immediate discharging of thoughts into action. This inhibition causes us to look inward and to deeply ponder our actions and reactions.
This introversion is indispensable for self-realization as it displaces our attention from the outer world to the inner. When the external world disappears, our circle of consciousness contracts because our primary attention is focused upon our inner self. It is this inner attention that magnetizes “spiritual light” into the pineal gland.
THE THIRD VENTRICLE
The third ventricle of the brain is a narrow opening lying near the base of the cerebral hemispheres and separating the two thalamic areas. These thalamic areas are the brain’s “storehouse” of all our sensory perceptions. When the pituitary and pineal glands are fully developed and stimulated through meditation upon the sixth and seventh chakras, their vibrations fuse and activate the Third Eye. Once the Third Eye is open we have personal access to higher knowledge. The opened Third Eye is called the “Eye of the Soul”.
Shiva yoga is a form of yoga practice which concentrates on awakening the pineal gland. This gland is often dormant because our third dimensional self is usually focused on the outer sensate world rather than the higher spheres. Shiva yoga teaches that cosmic light descends to meet the individual through the optic thalamic nerve connection of the crown chakra. Once the Kundalini has risen to the pituitary gland, it merges with the cosmic light which the pineal gland has received in the third ventricle.
The human brain has a fundamental resemblance to a human, androgynous embryo. The pituitary gland holds the positive, masculine charge and the pineal holds a negative, feminine charge. When the masculine and feminine energies meet in the brain it is known as the Mystical Marriage. The Mystical Marriage initiates the birth of our multidimensional consciousness and our conscious passage into the fifth dimension and beyond.
The rising Kundalini pulls the energy up from Mother Earth through the nerve channels, into the medulla oblongata, through the pons area of the brain and then down into the pituitary gland behind the eyes. The increasing pituitary radiations then pass through the third ventricle to awaken the pineal gland which has received light from the higher dimensions. The feminine earth energy merges with the masculine pituitary gland and the feminine pineal gland receives the masculine unmanifest energy from Spirit. When the two awakened chakras’ essences meet in the third ventricle, there is the union and harmony of spirit into matter as the multidimensional forces of spiritual light merge with the matter of our third dimensional brain.
THE THIRD EYE
The opened Third Eye is also known as the Middle Eye of Shiva, the Eye of Horus, and the Horn of the Unicorn. The Temple of Maat in early Egypt was dedicated to the process of opening the Third Eye. The Third Eye is an etheric, or fourth dimensional, eye. It acts as a sensitive receiver, and transmitter, by which vibrations of many different types can be translated, interpreted and dispersed into our third dimensional brains to gain wisdom and illumination. Through this EYE, inner planes, thought forms, and higher entities are perceived. A better sense of cause and effect is also acquired.
All eyes need a lens to give meaning to a perceived light sensation, including the Third Eye. The Third Eye’s lens is located in our aura, just in front of our sixth chakra. The psychic construction of this lens is part of the discipline that leads to the accurate perception with our inner eye. By using this point in our aura (between our eyes and in the center of our forehead) as a focal point during meditation, we can facilitate the development of our Third Eye’s lens. Using this form of meditation also facilitates theta wave consciousness.
Theta waves (4-7 cps) occur in sleep and are dominant in our highest state of meditation. We normally only experience theta waves as we drift off to sleep, during some dreaming, and as we return from the depths of delta sleep. The pictures we perceive as we drift off and awaken are in theta wave. During theta wave meditations, we are in a waking dream where vivid imagery flashes before our inner vision. In this state, we are extremely receptive to information sent from the higher dimensions.
The Shamanic State of Consciousness, which is theta brainwaves, allows us to journey into the higher planes. The steady-rhythmic beat of the drum struck four and one-half times per second (theta waves are 4-7 cps) is the key to transporting a shaman into the deepest part of his or her Shamanic trance. The constant and rhythmic-drone of Tibetan Buddhist chants that transport the monks and other listeners into realms of blissful meditation also follow this rhythm.
Theta waves have also been identified as the gateway to learning and memory. Theta meditation increases creativity, enhances learning, reduces stress and awakens intuition as well as other extrasensory perception skills. Theta consciousness allows us to connect with our creative inspirations, spiritual guidance and peak experiences. Through theta wave meditation, we can open our Third Eye and access the delta waves that unite us with Universal Energy and Cosmic Consciousness.
A circle surrounds the symbols for the first five chakras. This is not the case with the sixth and seventh chakras because these two chakras represent the expansion of our consciousness beyond the confining “circle” of our third dimensional self.
LOCATION: The location of the sixth chakra, also known as the Brow Chakra, is between the eyes in the center of the forehead.
PETALS: There are ninety-six petals in this chakra. These turning petals accelerate into a swirling vortex when the Third Eye is opened.
NOTES AND MANTRA: The note for this chakra is high A, and the mantra is “aum”, “om”, or “mmm”. The mantra “om” is used by many traditions to achieve theta wave consciousness.
COLOR: The color for the brow chakra is indigo. The children being born now are called the “Indigo Children” because they are born with their Third Eye fully opened. It will be our challenge to protect these children from our dangerous world until they are old enough to become our leaders.
RULES: The sixth chakra rules our intuition and imagination and is associated with the parts of our consciousness concerned with a spiritual view of life. This chakra is sometimes known as the Home of Spirit, as it has the ability to inform us of the motivation behind actions. Through the sixth chakra we can observe the outer theater of life from an inner point of view. Inner vision is also ruled by this chakra. Through meditation upon our brow chakra, we can gain great inspiration and the vision of our purpose and destiny.
This brow chakra rules our sleeping dreams. There are three kinds of dreams:
|(1) Our unconscious dreams, which bring old issues up from our subconscious so that we can gain a clearer understanding of how we really feel instead of how we “should” feel. We can perceive these dreams as nightmares or as opportunities to be conscious of our own darkness so that it can be healed and released.
(2) Our conscious dreams, which are often dress rehearsals for what we are doing or trying to do in our waking life. After having these dreams we may feel tired, as if we have been working all night, and in a sense, we have been.
(3) Our superconscious dreams, which allow us to have actual waking journeys through the inner planes. It is important to write out these dreams and integrate them into our everyday lives for they are actual, spiritual guidance.
Even if a dream is not remembered, it still releases psychic tension. Research has show that people who have received adequate sleep, yet have been deprived of dreaming, become disoriented and psychologically disturbed. It is even more beneficial if we learn to remember our important dreams, because they give us important information about our SELF.
There are two effective ways to remember our dreams. One, we tell ourselves upon falling asleep, “I will remember my dreams”. Two, before we open our eyes in the morning, we tell ourselves what our dream was. This activity transfers the dreams from our imagistic right brain to the language areas of our left brain. Then we can often remember the dream long enough to write it down. Some dreams are not difficult to remember and, in fact, haunt us until we process them until we fully understand their meaning.
SENSE: The last two chakras rule our higher senses. The sixth chakra rules our higher sense of telepathy, empathy, ESP, and all the other abilities that are latent within the 85% of our brain which we do not normally use.
ASTROLOGICAL SIGN: The holistic thought and realization of inner correlations of Sagittarius/Jupiter, the divinely inspired thought, higher knowledge, and flashes of intuition of Aquarius/Uranus, and the imagination, intuition, and access to inner truths through devotion of Pisces/Neptune rule this chakra.
ELEMENT: The elements for the last two chakras are also metaphysical, or beyond the physical. The sixth chakra rules spiritual vision and inner sound.
CONSCIOUSNESS: This chakra rules the expansion of our third dimensional consciousness to encompass our conscious perception of the fourth dimension. This conscious perception of the fourth dimension means that we remember our inner travels, whether they are through sleep or meditation. It also means that we learn how to integrate the inspiration, illumination and knowledge we have gained into our everyday physical lives.
PERSONAL TIMELINE: The brow chakra represents the stage of life where we are self-realized adults and have learned to live in harmony with our expanded SELF and with others. Since we live in the third dimension, this does not mean that we never have problems but rather that we don’t see them as “problems”. Instead, we experience life’s difficulties as initiations through which we can grow and expand our consciousness. We realize that our true self is a multidimensional being who has spun a hologram of its essence into the lower dimensions to gather experiences. Our self-realized adult feels in unity with All That Is and is aware of the responsibilities of that unity.
SOCIAL TIMELINE: The time era best represented by the brow chakra is the hopeful near future. If we can survive the challenges of today and connect to the consciousness of Earth, Lady Gaia, we shall experience the profound union of Planetary Civilization. At this time, that possibility looks a bit grim, but we must remember that the darkest hour is just before dawn.
We have been informed for many decades now that we are moving into a Golden Age where we shall live in constant connection with our multidimensional self. There are many of us who have that experience in this year of 2001, but there are many more who do not. If we can consciously merge with God/Goddess/All That Is, and surrender to that Oneness, we shall be free of the fear of this hologram and choose the reality where we knowingly move onto fourth and fifth dimensional Earth.
ENDOCRINE GLAND: The endocrine gland for the sixth chakra is the pituitary gland. This gland is discussed in depth in “Opening the Third Eye.”
NERVE PLEXUS: The nerve plexus for this chakra is the carotid plexus, which rules the nerves of face, sinuses, vision and hearing.
CLEAR: When this chakra is clear there are enhanced intellectual and psychic abilities. Our memory is good and our perceptions are accurate. Through our ability to consciously travel into the higher dimensions of our inner reality, our ability to visualize is amplified, our imagination is expanded and we are able to project our visions and imaginations into our outer world. Our sinuses are clear and our hearing and vision is amplified by our ability to use our innate inner senses to amplify the information gained by our five physical senses.
UNCLEAR: When the sixth chakra is unclear we have difficult focusing in life, we can have mental health problems, we may be detached and distant from others and we suffer from intellectual stagnation. We may suffer headaches and fuzzy thinking as well as sinus problems, headaches, and vision and hearing problems.
EARTH CHAKRA: It is fitting that the earth’s sixth chakra is located in the Himalayas, Tibet, as this is an area that has always cherished consciousness expansion and travel into the inner, higher planes of reality.
DIMENSIONS: The brow chakra rules the theta waves of our expanded awareness as well as intellectual and psychic excellence. This chakra represents our conscious exploration of the higher dimensions found within our SELF. Through meditation upon the sixth chakra we can open our awareness to encompass the fourth dimension up to the threshold of the fifth dimension.
SUMMARY: The sixth chakra represents the first step towards our journey Home. Once this chakra is opened, our higher senses are activated and our perceptions of life expand. We are no longer able to limit ourselves to the physical rules of separation from others and from SELF. We will never again experience physical life in the same way because we cannot limit ourselves to the “boxes” of mundane life.
Our journey has begun and Divine Discontent will overtake us if we try to turn away from our greater life. Fortunately, the reward is that our creativity is greatly enhanced as we tap into our inner storehouse of inspiration and illumination. We now seek within for our answers, and we use outer resources for validation rather than as our only source of information. The door to the fifth dimension stands ajar and we are tempted to enter.
Mundane life calls to us to continue as we did before, but we CANNOT. We are different and this difference must be expressed in our outer world in order for us to find peace. We search, inside and out, to find a life that fits this new resonance we have found within. Jobs change, friends change and relationships change. Eventually, we find new jobs, friends and relationships that can accept and appreciate our greater self, and happily, there are those who remain our true companions. With our expanded resources we find others to help us as we, in turn, help others.
We have stepped upon our Path to Soul and we are going Home—Home inside our SELF.
A Personal Account of the Rising Kundalini
THE SIXTH CHAKRA 1992-1994
Kundalini had rested in my fifth chakra for a long time when the whisper of “Time for a change,” became a shout. “Get ready for a bumpy ride,” the inner voice said. The next two years would be filled with change.
All of my life I had a very vivid imagination of other lives, my other lives. When my Kundalini first awakened, other lives would come to me in rushes. I would have dreams and when I awoke an inner voice would say, “This is a dream of another life.” But nothing was as extreme an experience of my other lives than when Kundalini entered my sixth chakra.
I use the term “other lives”, avoiding the term past lives, because all lives are actually simultaneous and happening in different space/time quadrants. With my sixth chakra opening, I was able to psychically travel into the fourth dimension. From the fourth dimension, I was out of space/time as it is known on the third dimension and could easily view any other third dimensional life that I desired.
However, I did not desire to visit them. They came to me so strongly that I HAD to write them down. These other portions of my SELF were calling me to hear their stories. While I wrote each life, I lived it simultaneously to my present life. I was experiencing my first multi-dimensional awareness. There had always been other lives on the edges of my consciousness, but now they came in in full force. Unfortunately, all of them were sad with unhappy deaths filled with pain and disillusionment.
Many years before I received an inner message that had said, “Once you have healed enough of your pain in this life, your other lives will rush forward for the same healing.” Well they were rushing forward all right. Many times, I found it quite difficult to live two lives at once. The good part was, as I wrote these lives, I found resolution for the conflicts, comfort for the pain and love for the fear. These lives were put together in books one and two of Visions from Venus.
One of my most powerful and disturbing experiences was when I re-experienced my first life in a third dimensional body at the fall of Atlantis. I felt, in every fiber of my being, the ripping apart of my essence as only my female polarity was able to enter the body. I experienced again the deep sorrow and abandonment when my other half, my Divine Complement, left me. When I wrote through the feelings of that life, I released a deep pain in my heart that had haunted me my entire life. A few days after completing the writing of my life during the total destruction of Atlantis, a strong earthquake hit Los Angeles, my hometown.
When I first wrote the Visions from Venus, it was from the perspective of the fourth dimension. Later, when Kundalini had risen to my crown chakra and my third eye had opened, I rewrote the book from the perspective of the fifth dimension. The entire process covered many years. I found that as I healed each “past life”, that a part of my present life was healed as well. Eventually, I was able to access lives in which I was able to reunite with my Divine Complement and move as a unified being into the fifth dimension upon my death.
Once again, I had become disillusioned with a spiritual teacher. But also, and most important, my inner guidance told me that my writing and meditating had brought me to the threshold of the Soul Plane—the fifth dimension. Once there, I would no longer have physical teachers. My instruction would come from higher dimensional Beings and from my inner, higher dimensional Selves.
CAREER LIFE AND PERSONAL LIFE
My career life and personal life are presented together here because my body (personal life) demanded changes in my career and I had to listen.
When my son went off to college, I found I had a lot more energy to put into my career. After battling the empty nest syndrome of: “My babies are gone!” to “I am free!”, I settled into making more mental space for more psychotherapy clients. It worked, and soon I had more clients then ever. However, simultaneously, I still had my audiology career. I was working too much, again! Meanwhile, I was living two lives at one time and going through menopause.
This time I had to let my body take charge of my career rather than the other way around. Ladies, if anyone tells you menopause is a breeze then they are a man! I had PMS ALL the time; ten hot flashes an hour (highlighted by red face, perspiration, and a new kind of body odor) and woke up five times a night. That is, if I could sleep at all.
Well, I was a good new ager, ex-hippie. I was going to take the natural route. I scheduled massages once a week, I got a personal trainer, I went to a homeopathic doctor, an oriental medicine doctor and a chiropractor. NOTHING WORKED. The pituitary gland in my sixth chakra was activated and my biochemistry was OFF. It was the 50-60 hour weeks and the no sleep that finally did me in. I surrendered to western medicine and started taking the hormones. However, I was still tired all the time.
Finally, I sprained my right ankle and put my back out. Was the load too heavy for me to step forward?? I had to take the leap. I couldn’t carry two careers (while I was also living at least two lives at a time) any longer. One of my careers had to go. There was no question which career I would choose, the counseling. But was it really giving me enough money by itself? I did have a lot of debts. My body said, “Jump. You have been sitting on the fence too long. You are using me up.”
The act of having enough confidence in my self, my inner guidance, and my own vision of my destiny was my initiation. My sixth chakra saw the big picture and I had to believe in it. I had to trust that I would love my work and be able to survive financially. That meant that I had to believe that I deserved to make money at something that I found creative and interesting.
When I quit the audiology career, I had lots of time. For quite a few years I had had more money than time so I went to a lot of places in my outer world. Now there was no extra money to spend for travel, but the journey inside was free. Inside I went. My meditations had taken me through the fourth dimension and I was knocking on the door of the fifth dimension. When I first arrived, I met the “Greeter” who worked with me. He was a guardian of the threshold whose service was to assist the newcomers.
I was initially blind and deaf on the fifth dimension. My perceptions were not yet calibrated to that vibration. I had trained my inner perceptions to perceive the fourth dimension, but I had not yet adapted to the higher frequencies of the fifth dimension. Also, the sensations of the fourth dimension are very bright and loud and sometimes feel almost physical. However, the sensations of the fifth dimension are subtle and illusive.
Besides the Greeter, the only thing I could perceive for a while (a while really has no meaning because there is no time in the fifth dimension) was the green grass. Eventually, I could see a swirling vortex of yellow and red, only with a different tint to the colors. The Greeter said that that was the actual fifth dimension. However, it took me a long “third-dimensional time” to get there.
In due course, the Greeter told me that I was ready to go a fifth dimensional “town” that was located on the threshold area. This experience was almost too much for me. For one thing, once in the town, I had an experience of unity and complete equality beyond anything I had ever felt. While traveling in the fifth dimensional wave of consciousness, I felt complete, unconditional acceptance and unconditional love. The feeling was so blissful that it almost hurt.
Also, there was no hierarchy system. There was no one who was better or worse. I remember feeling something dislodge in my mind when I realized that, after this experience, I would not have another physical, spiritual teacher. Now I would have to seek my answers inside my SELF.
When I reached the “town”, I had some problems. In the fifth dimension, every thought and emotion is instantly expressed. Well all of these new sensations were a bit frightening to me and I created a big monster with my fear. My fear created something that made me even more fearful. (By the way, the monster looked just like the monster I used to see in my nightmares as a child.) However, the other people in the “town” understood that I was a newcomer and, just as they unconditionally accepted me, they unconditionally accepted my “monster”.
However, my recreation of my childhood monster told me that I needed more instruction. I told the Greeter that I would like to study with a woman since, back on earth, I was a woman and I wanted to experience that fifth dimensional female power. He obligingly took me to my new inner teacher. This woman was the leader of a small group of newcomers like myself. I was to learn a powerful lesson in this group.
The leader was teaching us that the fifth dimension was beyond time and space. The group was in a circle and we were instructed to merge with the person next to us. For a “moment” a man and I were in exactly the same time and space, yet we completely maintained our individuality.
I returned from my meditation and realized I was late for a third dimensional appointment. I rushed out the door and down the stairs to my garage. I drove out slowly as I always do, thank heavens, but a bicyclist was on the sidewalk and hit my car with his bike and rolled over the hood of my car. I was horrified. How could I have such a spiritual experience and then kill someone?
I rushed to the man, who wasn’t dead, and took him into my house to give him a little first aid. At that moment, our eyes met and I realized that it was him—the man in my meditation. We had been in the same place at the same time in the third dimension just as we had been on the fifth dimension.
I didn’t tell the man of my experience. It seemed too weird, and I was afraid of judgment. In fact, it seems weird even now. I tell you, the readers, because you too may have had, or will have, these kinds of unexplainable experiences from your multidimensional consciousness.
I saw the man just one more time. He came back and seemed to waiting by my garage. He was fine, but it had cost him $1,000 at the chiropractor. It had cost me exactly $1,000 to fix my car.
My initiation lesson was to release all judgment of who is, and who is not, “spiritual”. This man did not appear to be at all enlightened. His bicycle was old, and he looked poor and displaced. But, he was at exactly the same place spiritually that I was. Just as we can’t judge a book by its cover, we can’t judge a multidimensional person by his or her third dimensional life. I had learned a lesson in humility as I STEPPED ONTO THE SIXTH STEP TO SOUL.
SEVEN STEPS TO SOUL
A Poetic Journey of
By Suzan Caroll
THE SIXTH STEP
Imagination is that portion of us that is childlike. It isn’t real. Or is it? Could it be that our imagination is a powerful tool that we can use to mold our dreams into a future ~ into a NOW? If we can take the risk and enter the unknown, we may find that we are so important that our imagination is the thread that ties us to our Soul and hence, to all of life. Through our imagination, we can create a portal between our outer world and the rich inner worlds of Soul where everything is possible ~ if only we can imagine. And, we are our own gatekeepers.
She saw the sixth stair before her on a stairway that disappeared into the clouds. She knew this stairway well for it lived in her imagination and led to her inner universe on the “other side”. She had kept this passageway a secret so that the pain and fear of her outer life could not invade her inner sanctuary. Now, the clouds were thinning and a light shone down the stairway beckoning her to join these worlds. Could she allow her inner Self to shine in her mundane life just as the light shone through the clouds?
The sixth chakra represents our ability to imagine an inner world filled with life. It is important that we believe in our imagination, for only then can we truly believe in our true Self radiating from these inner realities into our everyday life. It is our imagination that allows us to release the illusions of the third dimension and travel on our Path to Soul.
On the outside is the reality of our physical life, but on the other side is our imagination. Our imagination is our magic carpet upon which we can ride to find the many selves that were lost when we forgot our SELF.
|The other side of worldly woe
A very special space to go
To feel the heart, the mind, the wings
Wind and rain and snow and sleet
Through the rainbow let it flow
Neither within space nor time
Not to earn, to own, to keep
Oh, to touch from inside out
How to be and where to go
Guide me now I care not where
Free of want and free forever
Hold my mind within my heart
The cycle of the world begins
Embrace me now I do surrender
Holy be the sound of life
Take a long moment now to visit the other side. To step across this threshold, we must shed all our protective armor and enter as innocent as a child. When we return, we may not need such armor for we will have learned that our protection comes from within.
|Moments in the meadow,
moments by the pond.
Moments of a life gone by
to set the sun upon.
When were all these moments?
Maybe there's a moment,
That “now” is dawning in the east.
For hidden in the moments
To hold that light of hope
And now, just what will happen?
The puzzle is together.
The joining of our worlds,
With head high in the heavens
Beyond all of the reasons,
The climb up to the top
And where are these steep mountains,
These mountains they are made
For deep inside our Self
Memories now of moments.
How do we join our inner and outer worlds? Our imagination has shown us another reality and now we must find a way to integrate it into our everyday life. Perhaps the two worlds are not as different as we think.
The Rose is still a bud, but it is soon to open.
The transition of our consciousness is much like the opening of a Rose. For many eons we, the members of Earth, have placed our consciousness on the outside of the Rose. The Core of the Rose was a mystery to us. Therefore, it was a god.
From the outside of the Rose, from the petals which were exposed to the environment, we prayed to the Sacred Center. Some of us even thought that this Sacred Center was deep inside the earth or far above us in the sky.
We had not yet remembered that
the Center was not above or below,
the Center was within.
God was distant and apart from us then, and the world was cruel and distrustful. Therefore, we had to be sure that we protected ourselves from outside forces that we believed were “separate.” If God was separate, than so must everything else be separate. We were lonely. We were isolated. Fortunately, when we felt safe enough on the “outside,” some of us decided to go “inside” to see what lay within the Center of the Rose.
And so we began the long journey to the center of the Rose, the center of ourselves. This journey was very frightening at first because we were used to holding our consciousness on the outside of the Rose, the outside of ourselves. The trek inside was long and lonely. If we were separate on the outside of the Rose, then how much more separate would we be on the inside?
But gradually, we discovered that we were not alone inside the Rose. We came to realize that there was an entire universe which existed there. It was our own special, independent universe. But was it really just ours? Was it really independent? Eventually, we became aware that, from the Center of the Rose, from the center of this “new” universe, you could contact the essence of every other Rose that ever was or ever would be.
Because, in the Center of the Rose there was no time.
In the center of the Rose there was no space.
We were not alone!
We were not separate!
But where was our consciousness? Was it on the outside of the Rose, protecting us from “them”? Or was our consciousness in the Center of the Rose
where we were NOT alone,
where we were NOT isolated,
where we did NOT need protection
because there was NO harm?
And then it began to happen.
There was a great change on the outside of the Rose. It occurred slowly at first, and then the pace grew faster and faster. Everything that had been so hard, and firm, and stable was beginning to shift. Things were not so hard anymore, nor were they so stable. The outside petals of the Rose were moving away from the Core and pulling the other petals with them.
Now, we could not hide as easily within the Core of the Rose. However, if we placed our consciousness on the outside of the Rose, where we could “watch our backs”, we were affected by the great change. The outside petals were becoming very unsteady. They were threatening to fall from the Rose and land far away, far away from the Core of the Rose, the Core of Ourselves.
We could no longer place our consciousness on the outside where it was separate,
separate from others,
separate from God,
separate from our own Core,
and separate from the place deep within
where the was no separation.
We could not stop the petals from falling. And if we became attached to them, We, too, would fall away from our Core. Now we ALL had to journey to the Center of the Rose and place our consciousness inside because the changes outside were happening faster and faster.
But we were safe deep within ourselves. We were no longer alone there. We were with everyone else who had found their way to the Center of their Core, the Core of their Rose. But were we protected from the outside? Could we hide from what was happening outside of us?
All the petals were falling away now and we were no longer protected from the “outside” because there was no ”outside”. As each petal fell from our essence, we were preparing ourselves for the “new world” that awaited us. A new world
where there were no petals,
where there was no outside,
where there was no separation.
And then, all the petals were gone. We were no longer IN the Center. We WERE the Center itself. There was no longer a place to hide, nor was there a reason because there was NO separation.
There was no God OUTSIDE or ABOVE or BELOW or WITHIN because there was NO measure of distance because there was NO space. There was no fearful future or sorrowful past because there was NO time. There was no core because there was NO exterior.
There was only NOW.
There was only HERE.
As we looked around us, we could see that there were still Roses that appeared to be independent from us. However, when we placed our attention upon them, they lovingly and willingly opened their heart to us, as we did to them.
There were no secrets,
there was no fear,
there was only Unity and Love.
Once we have joined our inner and outer worlds, we need to find a way to live in them both. However, we may not have to “try” or “work” towards that end. It could be that living in both worlds is as simple as taking one more step.
|Upon this distant shore
was all that you have longed for,
all that you could be.
You looked back one last time
All of your life you had kept it far away
From your position at the helm of your ship
But now, the distance was no more.
All you had to do was plant your step
Could you release the vessel
Could you allow it to return to its Source
The sun was warm
The water was cool
As you walked onto the dry sand
They no longer fit you.
and you did not need
Your were totally vulnerable now.
Soon the sun would be setting
You had only the light
But you felt good.
Maybe not for everything,
The wait was over!
THE SIXTH STEP TO SOUL
She waited a very long time before she even attempted to climb the stair to the sixth pillar. Something about it was foreboding. Probably, it was the Power. The Power of it was so intense that it frightened her. But she knew that she couldn't resist it any longer. It was time now to make the single step that she so deeply believed would change her life forever. She had felt the change coming for quite some time. Something inside was going away to be replaced by something else that had not yet been born. The something that was going away was FEAR.
As she prepared to take this simple step which would complicate every area of her life, she reflected upon all that had happened. Like the moment before death, her entire life flashed before her. There was, of course, too much to consciously register, but there was a general theme that seemed to be replaying in drama after drama.
The theme was personal inadequacy. With that thought, she stopped suddenly—foot raised in midair in preparation of the step. Was she inadequate? Had she had been avoiding this step knowing that, if she took it, she would realize that for her entire lifetime she had secretly felt inadequate?
If that was so, once the step was taken, she would have to drop that modes operandi forever. She would have to accept that she WAS adequate. She would have to accept and love herself exactly as she was in every moment, through every emotion and with every thought. No wonder she had avoided this pillar so long.
She wondered why she had clung so ardently to a negative self-image. What could be the possible profit? Of course, with the question came the answer. Fear of judgment! If she knew, first, that she was inadequate, then maybe it wouldn't hurt so much when THEY told her so! Of course, THEY were seldom rude enough to come right out with it. THEY were nicer than that. THEY told her with a look, with a pat, or with their eyes.
If only she hadn't been so sensitive. If only she had been able to believe their hollow words of praise. However, the praises were short and very far apart, whereas the criticisms were constant and covered every area of her life. Worst of all, the ones who criticized her most were the very ones who professed to love her. And now, unfortunately, much of the criticism came from her self.
Could she take this step? Was she “adequate” to the task? A battle began to wage deep within her. Who was right, the outsiders who now secretly lived in her head, or the small voice inside who whispered, "You can do it"?
She could do it, she would do … she did it!
She did it quickly, like jumping into a cold pond. She chose to lower her raised foot, not on the step that she was on, but instead on the next step, the step just above her.
Quickly, she had to shift her weight to the foot on the higher step. She knew that if she hesitated she would stop her forward motion. With a leap of faith, she planted her other foot firmly on the sixth step, just feet away from the pillar.
Now she would have to look inside the pillar's crystal to see what was there. She inched forward. She had to stretch her body to its tallest self because this pillar was much taller than the others. Quickly, before she lost her nerve, she looked into the crystal. Initially, she could see only swirling Golden Light that was more beautiful than anything she could imagine. It moved in clockwise circles as if it followed a plan. Yes, something was taking shape. Something was being created within the Golden Light.
It was a face. No, wait, it was HER face. But the face was perfect. Not perfect in its shape, age, expression, or any other gauge of perfection that had been offered in the past. The face was perfect because it was the Face of Soul. It was perfect because it was the archetype of everyone and everything she had ever attempted to be in all of her lives. It was perfect because it was SOUL! And being Soul, it was above judgments or polarities. It wasn't good, bad, beautiful, or ugly. IT SIMPLY WAS, therefore, it was PERFECT!
The face didn't have to be changed, improved, or altered. It only had to be accepted and cherished. It was beyond time and space. Therefore, it had no age or definite form. It existed because it was Truth. And, she could see it because she had been brave enough to look. She had been brave enough to face her sense of personal inadequacy and to choose not to allow it to hold her back any longer. She had chosen to move on to the next step knowing that her life would be inalterably changed.
She didn't know how life would be now, although, she was certain that it would be different. She had looked into the face of Soul, and in doing so, she had changed her self image for all of eternity.
She no longer had to fear judgment. Therefore, she no longer had to judge. Of course, there was habit. Habit could make her forget who she was. Habit could duplicate old behaviors that were now dead.
Therefore, she would have to look into the Face of Soul every day and in every way. She would have to first find the Face of Soul in the crystal, in the mirror, and in the faces of others. She would find the Face of Soul in trees, rocks, birds, insects, fish, and in all of the creatures of life. The Face of Soul was everywhere and in everything.
Could she remember to see it? Could she remember to be who she was and not who she used to be?
Yes! She would remember to remember. And when she forgot, she would look into the Face of Soul and forgive herself. She would not judge herself for forgetting, but rather move on and remember to NOT forget again.
All she had to do was take that one step and look into her own Face of Soul. Then everywhere, in everyone and in everything, she could see their Face of Soul. In that face was complete acceptance and therefore, complete love.
For love without acceptance is like a face without a Soul.
And, that acceptance must begin with her self!
What is the conscious mind?
These three questions determine the experience of life on earth chosen by each person. Yes, the experience is chosen, not assigned. Earth is a free-will planet. The reality that you live is the reality that you choose. The catch is that you cannot choose a reality that you cannot resonate to. In other words, if you want to choose a higher frequency reality, you must be able to raise your consciousness to that frequency. To raise your consciousness to a higher frequency, you must be able to release low-frequency emotions such as fear, anger and sorrow, and keep your mind free of any thoughts of victimization.
I, the Mother, realize that this can be an impossible task for many of my human inhabitants for their lives are so difficult that survival is their primary goal. And all that they can be conscious of is, “How will I survive this day?” Therefore it is left to my human inhabitants who feel powerful and secure enough within their everyday lives to make a connection with their true, multidimensional self. As always, with added power comes added responsibility.
The first responsibility of power is to release all feelings of victimization. I realize that many of you are doing so and have found that to release victimization, you must first release an anger that you did not even know you had. This anger is about all the injustices of life in the third dimension. However, this third dimensional world that you are angry with is a lower-frequency reality where there are, indeed, great injustices. I also resonate to a higher frequency, and as we work together to clear our dark side, our frequency will accelerate more and more.
In the higher frequencies of myself—planet Earth truth, justice and love reign. However, those who cannot live in 100% truth cannot maintain that vibration. In order for you to choose that reality, you must realize that the injustices that you have experienced are only within the reality which you have chosen to live in.
You may ask, “Why would I choose this reality?” You chose this reality because you had to spin out into your external world into your external world your low-frequency emotions and thoughts of victimization so that you could learn how to master them. There are many others who have chosen your reality, and it is through helping them that you have been often helped yourself.
For many of you, this is to be your final incarnation upon my physical Earth body. I am accelerating my resonate frequency, and you will be reborn on my higher frequency form. You, the you that is receiving this message, shall be the holder of all the “past lives”, parallel realities, and octaves of your beingness. In preparation for this momentous event, you must go into every reality in which you have left behind portions of your “self” and set them free. This inner activity will also be lived in some fashion in your outer, physical world, such as giving service in poverty areas or with other people in need. When you have freed the trapped portions of your self, you will find new ways to express your mission.
As you experience these changes in your life, you will not sense much loss because your new life will feel better. Again, it is through helping others of the lower frequency reality as the trapped components of your self that you well be able to heal your total self. When those portions of your consciousness are free, you will no longer need to have the experience of that reality.
You may also free your lowest frequency remnants by proxy through creative expression. In this manner, you can experience the immense hardships of those realities in your mind without that physical experience. Then, if you share your creative process with others, you can assist them in healing by proxy as well. Creative expression allows you to feel and express your negative thoughts and feelings without causing harm to anyone, or to your self. The darkness must be brought into the light to be exposed before it can be healed and balanced by the light.
For example, anger is an emotion that, if suppressed, causes erratic and unkind behaviors because it is so tempting to spin that anger out onto someone or something else. Then you do not need to do the work inside of your self and can instead have a “righteous battle” with someone else.
However, if you follow that track, you have returned to the very victimization that is the reason for your anger. The inner anger that created the outer experience of anger manifested because of all the “things” that you had wanted to have, achieve, or be. Now you must heal that anger and remember that it was an inherent portion of the reality in which you chose to live.
“But I was just a child”, you may say. It is true that children do not get to pick their reality. However, it is also true that your Soul chose that reality before you took your physical incarnation. From the perspective of the higher worlds, you often do not remember how easy it is to become so involved in the “movie” of third dimensional life.
From the position of the third dimension, where everything seems so real, it is easy to become trapped and forget your reason for incarnation. You then forget that your present reality is only a cosmic eye blink and that, within that eye blink, you may have chosen to find personal courage in the midst of a challenging situation. Then you may feel forced to give into the sense of victimization that is inherent in the lower frequency worlds.
The path to releasing your feelings of victimization is long and fraught with many detours. Just when you are sure that you are in control of your life, something will come up that can’t possibly be your doing. No, someone else is the creator of your problem. You have carefully checked all evidence and you are positive that this situation is NOT your creation.
But, did you check your own unconscious? Who is really running the shop? Is it your past and all the persons who have convinced you to live by their rules and their limitations? Or, is it your present and the person that you have become? OR, is it your Soul? Sometimes your ego may be forced into a difficult situation that it absolutely cannot solve so that it will surrender to Soul. Sometimes, it is your “reason for incarnation” to serve in a difficult social moment. Perhaps you volunteered to help in a situation that needed Lightworkers to balance the negativity.
Dear children, you have been striving long to expand your consciousness. Be kind to yourselves. We are all working together, you and I, Gaia, to heal our pain and balance our darkness with our light. As each of you citizens of Earth clear your personal auras, you contribute to clearing the aura of planet Earth. Through the difficult experiences that you choose, you are raising your consciousness and the consciousness of the planet.
You are ALL expanding into planetary consciousness now, which is why I can communicate with you. Soon, we will expand into galactic consciousness—TOGETHER.

The pineal gland has various names such as pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the third eye. This small endocrine gland is located in the vertebrate brain, between the hemispheres of two joining thalamic bodies in the center of the brain. It’s named after its shape which is conical. It produces a hormone that is capable of affecting the regulation of sleep and wake patterns. This hormone is called serotonin derivative melatonin.
What people don’t know about this gland is that it connects your soul to your body. Once your pineal gland is activated to the world of spirituality, it may seem as if you have the godlike power of knowing everything that’s going around you. A properly tuned pineal gland will take you to the other dimension, which is also known astral projection or remote viewing. This proper frequency can be achieved through meditation, yoga or some sort of occult method.
The most bizarre thing about this is that one can even control someone else physically through it. The improved, advanced performance and old methods can be used to control other people’s actions and even thoughts. Former Soviet Union governments and various other organizations have been researching this for years and have managed to discover a lot. Many civilizations in human history, such as ancient Romans and Egyptians, had known about the third eye and so they have depicted it using the eye symbol. It is referred to even in Catholicism in Rome.
This may be a bit too astounding but the pineal gland can be found even on the back of the American dollar bill. The ‘all seeing eye’ on the back of the banknote is actually the capability of knowing about people’s thoughts and actions by travelling to another dimension. By knowing another person’s thoughts you can control him or her. The researches have gone far beyond our imagination. It is said that there are some hours at night in which brain releases chemicals that enable you to connect to the higher power.
Sodium fluoride, which is prevalent in foods, beverages and water we drink and wash with, is dangerous for the pineal gland. It destroys its ability to balance the hormones produced in our body. A study conducted by Ph.D. Jennifer Luke hasproven that this part of the brain absorbs most of the sodium fluoride than any other body part. The best way to avoid this misbalance in your body is to drink distilled water. If this is not taken care of, it can disconnect you body from your soul. You’ll have no connection with God and become the slave of this ruthless society.

Language of a balanced pineal gland
When you pineal gland is balanced, clarity of mind is a regular and natural state for you. Having a calm, primed mind gives you a powerful presence in this world.
