A Hathor Planetary Meditation Through Tom Kenyon - Spatial Cognizance
If you make authentic contact with Spatial Cognizance and meet the changing realities of your world in this state of Mind, you will forge a transcendent transformational power that will benefit you in innumerable ways.
The Nature of Spatial Cognizance
The ground of consciousness, (i.e., Spatial Cognizance) is the deepest space within you and transcends all phenomena including the world you perceive through your senses.
By its very nature Spatial Cognizance is imbued with the qualities of contentment, happiness and bliss. These are inherent and exist independently regardless of what might be happening in the sensory and/or mental/emotional realms of your existence. In other words, while you may be angry, sad or mired in other “negative” thoughts, emotions or situations, the ground of consciousness is unaffected by these. This is one reason Spatial Cognizancecan be such an invaluable aid to you as you deal with the accelerating pace of change in your world.
It is also spacious in nature (meaning it is infinite and unbounded like space itself), and it is self-aware. It is what might be called pure awareness—awareness being aware of itself.
When you have fully entered into Spatial Cognizance, you are at peace and have a clear sense of being unbounded or unfettered by the situations around you. This is another invaluable quality of Spatial Cognizance (i.e., the ground of consciousness).
For human beings, the most efficient way to enter Spatial Cognizance is through the spatial abilities of the right cerebral hemisphere. This part of your neurophysiology is a master of spatial perception and by leaning on this innate ability you will more easily enter into a direct experience of Spatial Cognizance.
The Sound Meditation
The Basic Spatial Cognizance Sound Meditation is 5:56 minutes in length. You can, as you wish, listen to it back-to-back multiple times especially as you more deeply explore its potentials.
It is best to listen to this with stereo headphones or ear buds so that the sound patterns are your primary sensory input. Due to the fact that you are directing your attention to inner space during the meditation, do not listen to it in situations requiring alertness. The meditation should be the sole focus of your attention.
Upon the first striking of the bowl, recall the feeling of a large space. It doesn’t matter what the space is so long as it feels large and spacious to you. It could be the top of a mountain, a large open area or any spacious environment of your choosing. The type of space you choose to work with is immaterial. What is important is that it feels large.
As you continue to listen to the sounds, make sure you are feeling the sense of space. You are not visualizing space or thinking about it. You are re-creating the felt sense of being surrounded by a very large space. Visualizing or thinking about space will not activate the parts of your brain/mind that generate a direct experience of Spatial Cognizance. Only the felt sense of being surrounded by a large space will activate the neural pathways that will allow you to experience your own spacious nature.
After you have generated the felt-sense of being surrounded by a large space, become aware of yourself being aware of the sense of spaciousness. This simple act of being aware that you are aware of spaciousness is the seed of immense insight and mastery. Do not be deceived by its everyday simplicity.
Once you hold the felt sense of spaciousness while being aware that you are aware of space, you have entered the foyer, so to speak, into the vast mansion of Spatial Cognizance.
There is one final yet crucial to step to this process—the addition of a highly coherent emotion such as appreciation or gratitude. Adding these emotional qualities will insure that you enter a higher dimension of Spatial Cognizance.
In fact, appreciation or gratitude are the benchmarks of all higher dimensional realities that are benevolent in nature.
For those of you who may have difficulty generating appreciation or gratitude spontaneously, consider this: your ability to be self-aware is one of the greatest gifts you possess. This seed of self-awareness travels with you when you die and allows you to experience the non-corporeal worlds. Regardless of what world you reincarnate in or even if you incarnate as an energy or sprit-being, your innate capacity to be self-aware travels with you. Thus, cultivating self-awareness and mastering it is a tremendous and indispensable boon to your self-realization.
Refinement and Use of the Sound Meditation
For those of you who are familiar with the art of psycho-navigation you can enhance your experience of spaciousness in this manner: imagine that you are not only surrounded by a large space but there is no boundary between your inner space and the outer space around you. In other words, the boundary setting mechanisms of your consciousness are temporarily suspended, allowing your awareness to expand into and identify with a much larger space than you are normally used to. This will activate the deeper potentials of your right hemisphere and its spatial capabilities.
In a more advanced application of this principle you expand your sense of space to include the entire universe and all the worlds, as well as all the multitudinous dimensional realities that comprise your cosmos. Merging into spaciousness in this manner will, for most people, create the most profound shift in spatial perception.
If you engage these expanded methods of accessing spaciousness it is important to return to your normal sense of identity after the meditation is complete. This is most easily accomplished by simply opening your eyes and engaging your peripheral nervous system. Gently rub your ear lobes, as the major meridians of of your body’s organ systems can be found within your ears as well as your feet. If you find it difficult to return to 3D reality after a deep exploration of spacious awareness, you could also rub your legs, arms and torso, which will stimulate your brain/mind complex to process external stimuli and return you to normal sensory reality.
The sound meditation itself is designed to support your right hemisphere, to shift your focus of attention into a feeling of expanded space. In its simplest application you would simply sit with this meditation engaging the steps we have described so that it culminates in your being aware that you are aware of spaciousness conjoined with a sense of appreciation or gratitude.
You could then, if you wish, work with it as solely as a sound meditation that you return to from time to time as a means to loosen your perception and begin the process of perceiving the ground of consciousness that transcends your sensory experience of the world.
The ultimate purpose of this sound meditation is, however, to train your brain/mind to enter Spatial Cognizance at will. And then in your day-to-day life enter Spatial Cognizance without the use of the sound meditation. This simple act will eventually train your brain/mind to attend to two realities simultaneously—the reality of Spatial Cognizance (and the freedom of spacious awarenessthat it brings) along with the act of dealing with the realities of your 3-D existence.
This will eventually give you greater mastery over the situations you confront in your life because you will not identify with the web of sensory-based reality. You will instead, identify with your ultimate nature (i.e. transcendent awareness). Your sense of Self will have expanded far beyond the confines of your personal identity to include the infinite spaciousness of the ground consciousness. This type of Spatial Cognizance both transcends and yet paradoxically includes your personal identity. With this greater range of self-awareness. you will better be able to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. And, at the moment of your death, you will more likely have developed the ability to decide where you wind up next—meaning what lifetime or what dimensional existence you reside in.
This is one of the greatest gifts of the Aethos, and it is being offered to you as your world enters a most perilous passage. Regardless of what you sense occurring around you we encourage you to make contact with your own Spatial Cognizance, for it is a great ally, a transformer of destiny and brings with it a cornucopia of non-ordinary abilities that will benefit both you and your changing world.

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations
Two things struck me about this particular Hathor message.
The first was their view regarding Earth’s current turmoil. They have alluded to increased planetary difficulties in several past messages, but this one has the strongest language yet. I am referring specifically to a paragraph that reads:
“From one perspective what you are experiencing in your world is catastrophic in nature. From another perspective it is a highly potent evolutionary catalyst. In other words, the metamorphosis of your world could destroy you or propel you into higher states of consciousness. The choice, at an individual level, between personal destruction or an ascent into a higher dimensional reality is yours.”
I think this idea of destruction versus an ascent into higher dimensional realities is the actual nexus or vital point of this message.
The Hathors are, in my opinion, calling a spade a spade. And they are saying that all life forms on Earth are in peril.
As a resource to counter this perilous passage, they are imparting an unusual resource they call Spatial Cognizance, and they say when the method is joined with the sound meditation of that name, you can directly experience the spacious (i.e., infinite) nature of your own consciousness.
This ability to experience yourself as spacious awareness will, they say, allow you to navigate the massive changes we all face with greater mastery because you won’t feel the pressure of sensory-based reality as you normally do. There is a type of grace that arises when we experience situations from a larger internal space that is self-aware.
The Hathors also say that in the more advanced phases of Spatial Cognizance, you will “see” through the illusion of this world as a solid reality. You will perceive, instead, that all things are actually transitory displays of holographic light and that all multi-verses are magical in nature.
Having worked with both the sound meditation and the method they described, I can attest that they work to create a greater sense of internal space that is self-aware. And this does allow me to be more resourceful when, and the operative word is—when—I engage Spatial Cognizance in my day-to-day life. In other words, if I don’t consciously engage this resource I can easily get caught up in the stresses of my own sensory, mental/emotional creations as well as the pressures of an accelerating timeline.
The second thing that struck me about this message is that Spatial Cognizance is essentially an unusual way to enter a yogic trance, a non-ordinary state of mental perception called Samadhi (or inner directed awareness), In its deeper states, Samadhi (i.e., Spatial Cognizance) reveals an infinite and spacious state of consciousness that is blissful and self-aware.
While the method and context of Spatial Cognizance is certainly unique, it unquestionably shares some of the philosophical territory discussed in the yogas of ancient India that trace their roots back to the Upanishads and also to Dzogchen, or The Great Perfection, that reached its zenith in Tibet.
Spatial Cognizance—both the sound meditation and the method for working with this state of spacious awareness—is certainly not for everyone. If you don’t feel a resonance with the sound meditation or the method, just move on.
If you do feel a connection with this approach, it is perhaps due to a Dimensional Tendency. The Hathors mentioned, in passing, Dimensional Tendencies in one of their previous messages. When I asked them what they meant by this term in more detail, they said that Dimensional Tendencies are vibrational bandwidths of subtle energy that affect consciousness.
These patterns of subtle energy arise from personalizing experiences, especially powerful ones. These patterns could have originated in previous life experiences, incarnations or in other non-physical dimensions of consciousness. The net result of these subtle energies is that they affect how we respond to our experience of the world and how we act in the world.
If you feel drawn to the concept and method of Spatial Cognizance as presented by the Hathors, it is perhaps due to the possibility that you may have explored the illusory nature of “sensory reality” in previous lifetimes and/or in other dimensions of consciousness. In other words, you created a Dimensional Tendency that would propel you to explore this kind of esoteric knowledge in future lifetimes.
Making the effort to master Spatial Cognizance is, in my opinion, well worth the effort. And if you choose to explore this remarkable state of Mind, I wish you great serendipity in your explorations.
Finally, may the many attainments you will have earned from mastering Spatial Cognizance be of benefit to you, to all your relations and to all sentient beings.
