There are many indications in dreams that show you are becoming more and more aware of the reality of a multidimensional existence beyond the physical world. During our time spent on the fifth dimension/astral plane we are likely to be involved in a wide variety of different dream scenes and scenarios, many of which have a sense of ‘realness’ to them. For instance you may be dreaming of interacting with certain people when they actually are there in their astral bodies just as you are there in your astral body. They may not remember seeing you in their dreams and vice-versa as how much of your dreams you will remember each day comes down to generally how awake you are to not only the reality of the world but also to the reality of yourself and how you interact with, relate to and affect the world. The more awake someone is to reality and the higher their level of being, the greater their ability to remember these dream interactions and what they experience or see each night when they go to sleep. … Continue Reading
Nymphaea caerula (Sacred Blue Lotus)
Going back many years now I was very interested in experimenting with psychoactive plant derived substances that reputedly enhanced ones ability to experience higher dimensions or altered states of consciousness. One plant I was particularly interested in due to it’s historical use by Egyptian priests and depictions in Egyptian art was the Sacred Blue Lotus or the Blue Lilly of the Nile as I knew it back then. I was particularly drawn to this plant because I read that it could be used to help induce lucid dreaming experiences or if not taking one to that level of lucidity during dream states then to enhance dreams giving them an extremely vivid quality. I had experimented with a few different mind altering substances considered to be psychedelic in nature and found them to be interesting but did not feel that they particularly gave me anything spiritual. When I say spiritual I’m referring to higher feelings or mystical experiences that don’t involve huge changes in perception but I still feel in my heart that certain psychoactive chemical do have a place in the world through their use as a medicinal treatment and their potential to grant personal insight into ones own nature.
The Blue Lotus however proved to be different. Firstly I’d like to explain the two different ways in which I experimented with this plant. The first time I managed to purchase the plant material I was told the product was material from the Blue Lotus plant soaked in extract from the flower. I smoked this through a water pipe before I went to bed. It was on this occasion that I experienced one of the more profound vivid/lucid dreams I’ve had. This happened only a couple week after I had purchased a book on Astral Travel with an esoteric dream symbol guide in it for dream interpretation. The second time I experimented with the Blue Lotus I drank a glass of wine that had lotus petals soaking in it for a few days. On this occasion I had no significant dreams that night and in fact the drink was quite disagreeable with my digestive system. It made me feel very physically relaxed but mentally excited which essentially kept me from going to sleep immediately after ingesting it. My dreams that night were very mundane in content with no obvious symbolism present but rather just the normal everyday things in life. It was almost like I was living my daily life through my dream by going to work as usual with my daily routine. … Continue Reading
If a person wishes to awaken the force of light within them they have to first face what is termed the Guardian of the Threshold. This creature is a symbolic representation of the sum of our subconscious or our Ego and appears to us as a monster in a dream. If someone is searching for spirituality or a way to discover what lies behind the veil of the physical world then the first trial they must undergo is meeting with the Guardian of the Threshold. As this monster is the representation of our Ego, how we react to it uncovers how we relate to our ego and reveals if we are ready to begin to face the dark parts of ourselves or if we are too afraid. If someone is ready then in this dream they will face it and fight, whereas is someone is dominated by fear of the unknown they will panic and run away. If a person runs then they are not truly interested in permanent enlightenment although they may be intellectually interested in the concepts and ideas, they are not interested in undertaking the work that is needed to be done to walk the path that has been hidden in esoteric teachings for centuries.
If we are willing to face the Guardian of the Threshold then our spiritual essence which brings us into physical existence is yearning to self realize or in other words is longing to return to it’s place of origin. Once we pass this challenge then we have begun to walk towards the beginning of the path and we have commenced the great esoteric work that so many saints and sages have completed before us. Many people have already passed this test without realizing as even though someone may not be directly involved with a spiritual modality they have the attributes and interests that a make a person capable of doing this work and there essence has a hunger for peace. After succeeding in this challenge you are then given the opportunity to access higher knowledge and can be helped by spiritual beings in your work. You may not remember this dream but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. This is universal for all people involved in any school of White Magic. … Continue Reading
Having an experience with an Incubus or a Succubus is extremely frightening and shocking and unfortunately these experiences are not that uncommon. People all around the world, from many different religious backgrounds have experienced demonic entities that attempt to engage with them sexually. There exist many theories as to why and how these beings have come to be. Unfortunately the root of these creatures lay within ourselves and are created from the combination of masturbation and imagination. Through masturbation we create sexual psychic elements which exist on higher dimensions. These are, when in their beginnings, connected to us (as if being born from us slowly as a separate creature) but as they are fed more sexual energy they can become an entity of their own and as this goes on they can even re-merge with us after being fully formed and feed their desires through us and our lives. I have come across many explanations behind why these entities exists but none of them pin point where their origins lay. I know through my own experience and through all I have learned from spiritual beings that the root of these perverse creatures lay within the act of sexual SELF GRATIFICATION. This is the true reason behind why in many religious traditions masturbation has been a contentious issue and is often debated about as to whether or not it is considered a sin. As far as I know there are no traditional religious scriptures that clearly state that masturbation is wrong, but the following phrase from the Bible speaks volumes to me regarding this question and many other unknown truths –
“But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who push the truth away from themselves. For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts.” ~ Romans 1:18-19 … Continue Reading

This was my first introduction into Edgar Cayce when I barely knew anything about him. I read it about 8 years ago whilst still studying and remember finishing it within a number of days because of how intrigued I was all the way through the book. I didn’t think Edgar Cayce was anything particularly special in terms of spirituality, at the time – I kind of just thought he was some random guy who could channel and I was more interested in people who produced their work directly from their minds through rigorous thought or meditation. This book made me realise what an incredible mystery EC was and how special he is in modern spiritual culture and times – He truly is an anomaly which made me question so much of what I thought about spirituality. If you don’t know much about EC and the story behind his works then this book is a great place to start. … Continue Reading

This is easily one of my favourite audio books. I find it’s a great reminder of the peace that can be found by letting go of all the attachments and desires that compel me into worrying by thinking about the future and past.
I really enjoy listening to it whilst travelling to or from work or when reflecting peacefully at home after a days work and activities. Stephen Mitchell’s translation is a very accessible version of the ancient Taoist chinese classic. It’s a relatively easy listen/read as the verses flow with eloquence which compels you to continue listening all the way through. I find it’s a book in which I can flick to any section and immediately hear a line or verse that communicates a deep mysterious wisdom aiding me in going beyond my normal way of perceiving life and reality. … Continue Reading
In my childhood I dealt with much hate and prejudice being a minority in a city dominated by one particular demographic. At the time Australia had not been anywhere near as multi cultural as it is today and dark-skinned migrants were still a relative rarity to come by in the 80’s. I grew up in the one area of Australia which is the most heavily populated Anglo-Saxon area according to statistics and as a dark-skinned female with a great amount of sensitivity to the environment and a timid personality, which was mainly due to the constant fear of judgement, it definitely was not an easy place to grow up in. Although outright racism was not the everyday experience for me, but it did occur occasionally, there was always issues of misunderstanding and assumption. Being asked if I lived in a hut when I went on holiday to South Africa was a common occurrence as well as the proverbial racist comments not aimed at me particularly, but expressed in front of me as if I were no different to the ‘normal’ white Australian. … Continue Reading
