If you want to expand your personal power, potential, and wisdom, consider a return to ancient knowledge. Step outside the traditional texts and teaching methods currently dominating our school systems. Wake to the innate and hidden truths inside yourself. Through self-education, you can free your mind, align chaos with order, and learn how to change your reality.
WARNING: There are typically two outcomes when a person chooses to flip through this dusty tome of lost knowledge---
Don’t piss on ancient wisdom. In fact, if you have to piss on anything, aim at today’s programming.
When I say "lost," I am instead referring to a missing link to a deep-rooted understanding that’s part of our DNA. Something scientists who can be too-smart-for-their-own-good have called “junk DNA” for years. Those extra strands of DNA that lie dormant and go unused.

Out of sight, out of mind, humans have lost their connection to this ancient knowledge. Religious groups have attempted to control our perception of it, subsequently burying the information altogether. Lucky for us, they never fully succeeded. With a little curiosity and an open-minded attitude, the age-old knowledge of our ancestors is yours for the taking.

Humans have also lost their connection to each other. However, organizations like the [tweet_dis]HeartMath Institute are discovering that we ARE connected to both each other and the world-at-large[/tweet_dis].
Some say we are moving toward an awakening. Others say, if we are, everything is moving too damn slow.
The news glaring at us from our television sets, video games delivering candy-colored notifications to our smartphones---these devices and this noise creates low-hanging smog that leaves humans hypnotised. Keep shoving a screen in front of your three-year-old and there won’t be an awakening any time soon.

Scientists are beginning to align their theories with the teachings of elders, star people, and native cultures. The clever ones in white coats are expanding and rewiring their minds at an exponential rate. They are connecting the dots, moving into areas of study like quantum physics.
You're done playing the game. For some time, you've sensed an inner spark ignited by new ideas, firing a desire to change. There seems to be a missing link---an instinct to toss out current systems. To rethink reality, from the way you make a living to the way you perceive yourself.
Let’s step back---way back. Consider incorporating old teachings into your life, ones that have been around for thousands of years.
Before controlling belief systems got a grip on humanity, the concept of reincarnation was both natural and obvious.
As soon as humans accept that this life is not our first or only, we can begin to look at life and our time on this planet with new understanding. Death becomes less terrifying. We realize life is not about grabbing as much as you can and getting the hell out of dodge. [tweet_dis]Life is not about our physical bodies at all---it’s about our spirit.[/tweet_dis]
Today there is no shortage of evidence to suggest this is true: stories of near death experiences, detailed accounts of an “other side,” reports of children relaying facts about past lives.
It provides meaning to events that have occurred in your current life. There is a purpose behind the people and places you have come in contact with. Your life has a theme and story planned out before you were born. Life is not completely random, unless you want it to be.
This does not mean you don’t have free will after spawning in this reality again. If you plan an adventurous journey out on a map, you can still decide to toss the map away and instead choose to find out where a random path will lead you.
Nowadays many people accept that the chances of humans being the only intelligent beings in the universe are extremely slim. In fact, it’s hardly up for discussion. Humans are only one species living in a remote area of the cosmos. In cosmic terms, we're still learning how to walk. And the earth itself is only one planet in ONE galaxy.
Ancient history suggests other beings have been visiting and communicating with humans for thousands of years. Other life forms have always been on this planet and are likely here now. The past few years, UFO files from around the world have been made available to the public. With limitations, of course. Large events and indisputable evidence are still not openly discussed.
For some, it may come as a relief to know that our connection to astrology, other planets, and other people extends to other life forms as well. That you yourself may have had a past life as one of these life-forms. For everyone else, this knowledge, at the very least, demonstrates how deep the connection between our own lives and the existence of others is---that there are HUGE facts about our existence that we have yet to understand or be made aware of.
It's highly likely this isn't the first time you have lived on this planet. In many ancient texts, like the Book of Enoch, the Emerald Tablets, or those of the Egyptians, rebirth is actively discussed. This time around you will likely have a specific theme---certain experiences you are meant to have and insights you are meant to gain.
Our purpose for being here can be both positive and negative. For some, life will be full of tragedy and difficult obstacles that make everything seem unbearable.
No doubt, there is a big difference between people who surf through life on a wave of bliss and those who suffer. The former often don’t give a shit about deeper understandings because there is hardly a reason to spend time dwelling on their lives. But for those who suffer, finding meaning in the midst of pain can be difficult.
I usually say, “it’s the tough souls who get a shitty life.” In turn, those souls experience huge growth on a spiritual level. If you understand that all the crap happening in your life is for a reason---that there IS a purpose to everything---even shitty days becomes a little more bearable.
Everything is perfect, even those experiences or people in our lives that throw everything out of whack---that seem to conjure images of pure evil. Evil in the human sense, the monster under your bed or the wicked witch working spells, does not exist.
But Yin and Yang do exist, which means you will find EVERYTHING under the sun out there. There are polarities to all levels of consciousness and experience. We observe even the tiniest manifestations in our daily lives as either positive or negative.
Because you are the one pulling the strings, with your thoughts and physical actions, you are the one producing the effect. This effect isn't always visible to the naked eye. It may even do a roundtrip in the ether before making an appearance in your reality.
Since we are part of ALL, floating in the infinite ocean of this comic soup, we also take part in other individuals' causes and effects. By expanding our minds, upgrading our consciousness, and understanding that everything has meaning, we take back the reins. We choose what we do with that meaning.
Understanding that everything happens for a reason means accepting that there are no mistakes. Think twice about your thought forms, way of living, and how they relate to other human beings.
In 2004, I had the chance to visit the US and the Lakota Sioux people at the Pine Ridge Reservation. It’s sad to see the devastation the United States government has brought on the land and people. While there, I listened to some well-spoken individuals still connected to their traditions. Their values were typical of many native people around the globe. Their respect for all living things is important because they understand their connection to all that is.
Today is no different. Existence still exists, and everything still is. The laws of the universe are still the same. Also the synchronicities between people, and all that is.

Most of us have heard the saying, “What you do for another, you do for yourself.”
The trick is to understand that those words are not just a cutesy saying or catchphrase for the moral elite. The words are a metaphysical law, like gravity.
Knowing that you are part of it all can be a difficult truth to live by. The HeartMath Institute is probably the most well-known organization demonstrating that our hearts are indeed connected. You are putting out signals all the time. You may begin to see that these signals have a way of impacting your life, influencing how you act, think, and feel.
Ever heard of the double-slit experiment? This experiment has become rather famous since the early 1900s when scientists first conducted it. Scientists are closer to understanding areas of study Albert Einstein may have deemed spooky. Scientists have found that particles change when a person observes them.
Prayer is essentially concentrated thought forms. You can also think of prayer as mediation or deliberate manifestations. In either case, prayer has not been fully understood, very much colored by religious routines like the folding of hands and the practicing of wishful thinking that leans toward pure, unadulterated hope.
Prayer is not bad, but humans need to wake up to the power of their minds. To how concentrated thought forms become things.
Pretend for a moment that your thoughts are visible, stretching out before you like lights in every shade of the rainbow. Not unlike the classic screensaver on Mac computers. When something in your life has you hyped, you focus on it so much that those strands of light and thought forms cluster! They concentrate their energy so they can metaphysically pave the way for events and interactions that have the ability to turn your goals into your reality!
But it's important to remember that this goes both ways. Both the negative and positive things you focus on shape your reality.
When you understand the power of your mind, you realize how your own thoughts can lead to desired outcomes. Humanity's default state is to focus on negativity, so much so that what we DON’T want to happen occurs. Some people carry around so much fear and negativity that they become physically sick.
I've been there. Some years ago, when I lost my beautiful big love, I cried until my stomach bled. (They call that an ulcer.)
One of the most well-known and ancient practices of inner contemplation and balancing the body and mind is meditation.
Meditation is used to improve oneself, either by focusing on a specific topic or by being still. There are many meditation methods, but usually, I refer to three main types: meditation in stillness to quiet the mind, meditation to music, and a guided meditation with a person in the room or audio playing in the background.
Through brain scans and other studies involving the human mind, researchers know that a routine involving meditation has the ability to change the brain. The practice creates neural pathways in the brain, activating or slowing down certain parts.
You often feel specific emotions when recalling certain thoughts or memories---emotions ranging anywhere from joy to a hard lump in the pit of the stomach. Consider, then, that by practicing mindful meditation to routinely focus on specific thoughts you can produce a long-term impact on your state of mind. By making meditation a part of your lifestyle, you will begin to experience positive changes in your life and reduce your overall stress levels.
For most people, this sounds pretty far out. Geometrical and mathematical shapes surround us. It’s not a coincidence that even many religions, secret societies, and governments associate themselves with certain symbols. We use them in our daily lives, but often, we don’t have the clarity or proper training to see or understand them.
Geometry is the blueprint of creation, creating our physical reality. Socrates called it the “pattern in the heavens [of] which everyone can find and establish within.
Geometric constructs appear in orderly or chaotic forms. When there is harmony, the geometric shapes align. When water is exposed to harmonious thoughts, researchers have found that the molecules align in beautiful geometric shapes. When infected, on the other hand, with noise and negative thoughts, the molecules appear disjointed and chaotic.
Recently in England, a vast and complex display of crop circles made an appearance. These shapes have shown up in farm fields and other open spaces for years, typically near sacred sites or ley lines. We do, of course, distinguish man-made crop circles from the real ones---those that are geometrically and mathematically perfect in shape, leaving no trace of footprints or the use of tools in their creation.
These crop circles should be observed from above so that the entire formation can be seen. The aim is to trigger the mind on a DNA level. It’s a wake-up call. A reminder of who you are, where you come from, and what potential lives inside you.
When most people look at photos of crop circles, they respond with feelings of awe in light of their profound beauty. But crop circles are not the only way to observe harmony in creation. Search the web for more hidden geometry throughout the natural world and have a look. Understanding the sacred nature of geometry will help you expand your mind so you can reach a higher level of consciousness.
Humans have tracked the movements of the heavens for thousands of years. Discovering one's own connection to the cosmos can be extremely beneficial and insightful. But reading this month's 60-word horoscope printed in the back of your local newspaper or a glossy magazine from the checkout line is better left for entertainment than a source of actual information.
Instead, consider using personal details to mathematically determine the alignment of the stars and planets at the exact moment of your birth.
Most people forget that everything is energy. That includes ALL that we are, body and mind, and the energy signature imprinted on us at birth. Throughout history, even kings have made use of their own personal astrologer. As one of many advisors, they provided both personal insights and predictions of the future.
Since astrology is not much different than the micro cosmos inside our bodies, understanding its driving forces helps us see the macro cosmos clearly. Since ancient times, we have studied the flow of the planets and stars. We can now predict changes that may arise in the future---changes that usually affect our lives on a metaphysical and emotional level.
When you dive into your own cosmic energy and explore your astrology birth chart, patterns reveal themselves. You lend seemingly random and disparate aspects of your life meaning and clarity.
In my journey to rediscover deeper truths, time has been the most difficult concept for my brain to decode. I guess it’s because, for me, time is not easy to visualize. With other concepts, images flash through my mind, giving me the ability to “see” how things fit together---how they work and look as a physical construct. But time? Forget about it.
On the History Channel, the popular program Ancient Aliens explores the topic of parallel realities. Other life forms arriving on this planet have been reported to say, “we are coming from the future.” Personally, I don’t believe these events can be cast off as science fiction any longer. It’s science fact. We are beginning to understand that the future---that time itself---has more to do with space, as in dimensional space, than the culmination of minutes and seconds that our clocks continually measure.
Time, as we know it, does not exist. There is no universal clock ticking throughout the cosmos. All that has happened before, all that is happening now, and all that will happen is taking place right NOW.
Yeah, that's a lot to take in.
Let’s return for a moment to the concept of multiverses and parallel realities. With the use of some of the largest telescopes you can imagine, scientists are discovering more and more about this fascinating topic. Recall something that happened yesterday. Now imagine instead that the memory is actually taking place at this very moment in a different, parallel reality.
Perhaps this is why some people can see shadow images from times long since past, or why a person with psychic abilities can see into the future. Technically, it is all happening NOW.
One important way to wrap your head around the fact that time does not actually exist and parallel realities are as real as this one is to “shift your reality.” People want to change their lives, but by limiting their understanding of the universe they place limits on what they are capable of achieving. When you begin to learn about and incorporate ancient insights into your life, the version of yourself currently inhabiting your body and mind WILL begin to shift. That shift informs your reality, causing your physical self to move into another dimension where you can find what you've been looking for.
Know that things, like your physical environment or the people you are connected with, will change, fading out of your life so that they may be replaced by something or someone new.
I know Christians and people with other limiting beliefs will likely freak out about this one. And that’s sad because that means religion still has a stronghold on the planet. Let’s enlighten ourselves. While the Bible explores this concept, it is, of course, completely misunderstood by those who represent God.
In the simplest of terms, when the Big Bang occurred, the source exploded in an infinite and ever-expanding cloud of fragments. All these fragments contain the consciousness of God so He, in turn, can experience life as all beings. You just have to get a little creative.
The reason for all this, of course, being that God found it very boring spending His time as one tiny speck in the vast blackness of the cosmos. So now there you are, sitting and reading this post wondering, well, what the hell happened then. What happened is, you forgot.
I know. For some, this realization can feel like a great loss and devastating disconnect to something larger than themselves. To mask that pain, they seek entertainment, dope, and replacements in many forms. But all of this is for a purpose---to experience. Life is simple, but humans are great at making things complex.
Understanding that you are God is one of the most important insights a human being can have. To know that you are equal to any rock on the ground, any celebrity you look up to, or any beggar on the street causes you to think twice about your actions and thoughts. Everything in existence is valid and equal in value. You may FEEL less valuable, or you may FEEL that you are awesome. But in the end, the joke is on you because it’s your mind playing tricks on you based on previous experiences.
Since you are part of God, of All that Is, begin to act like one. Manifest the very best of yourself. Incorporate the insights you’ve gained from all your past experiences, past lives, combined with the knowledge of the energy imprinted on you at birth using astrology, and grow as a person!
Here comes the hard part. By opening your mind to new insights, are you now WILLING to make the necessary changes to become a whole lot more of who you are?
There are generally two reasons for not moving forward even when you finally know what you want in life:
Here's another statement I hope we can establish as fact: if you KNOW the source of your unhappiness but won’t take the necessary steps to move forward, then it’s not about being stuck. Being unhappy is a choice.
Don’t let today’s limiting beliefs and fear-based teachings dim your brilliance. Put ancient knowledge to use in your own life to shift your reality and achieve excellence.
