CHAPTER 2:  CONNECTING WITH SPIRIT WITHIN.
                                               [UPDATED]
      
The Next Step toward Creating with Multi-Dimensional Technologies is to connect with High-
er Self, your Spirit Within__ and receive guidance.  

When you can obtain daily guidance from Spirit Within,  as Drunvalo Melchizidek says:  "You have  
won the game of life
."  

When performing manifestations or healings, we connect with Great Spirit-Creator's Energies through
our Crown Chakra,  pulling them down through  
pineal and pituitary glands  (Archives)  to merge with
Gaia-Earth in our high hearts.

Higher Energies
I'm in Idaho  preparing for the second week of the 1987  Vogel Crystal Healing Classes at Grand Tet-
on Park, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I receive an inner message upon waking
: "Kriya  is where you can  
learn all you need to know about energy.
" I have no idea what " kriya" is__ some unknown sacred si-
te on Earth, a book, a person, a planet? I note it in my journal, but dismiss it to get ready for the trip
to the next session.

Dr. Marcel Vogel, our instructor, flies to Jackson Hole from California. At Salt Lake City, an unusual-
looking man boards the plane to sit beside him. Although at least seven feet tall, sun-tanned, with sky-
blue eyes, and young looking in face and physique, he has snow-white hair and a small white goatee.
He says he's "
Heber", and has just returned from several years in the Tibetan Himalayan Mountains.  
He'd heard of Dr. Vogel's classes & would like to sit in on some of them. Marcel welcomes him warmly.

Sunday morning, Dr.Vogel and some of the students drive into Jackson to attend Mass. Heber agrees
to lead the remaining students  in meditation and prayer at the lodge. The meditation is superb,  and
one fellow asks Heber where he learned this style, as it's quite different from the
Transcendental Me-
ditation
he learned. Heber replies that his methods come from "Kriya Yoga", which he's studied for
years. "Yoga" means  "union", and "Kriya"  means "energies"__ so Kriya Yoga means "Union of Ener-
gies." I immediately recognize the word as the one received a week earlier.

Upon Marcel's return after lunch, we head uphill to the huge, circular Mongolian yurt in which classes
are held. I arrange to walk beside our tall visitor, telling him about my message concerning  kriya". He
links me with
Self-Realization Fellowship established by Paramahansa Yoganand,  who brought Kri-
ya Yoga to the United States from India and Tibet in the early 20th Century.

A day later, Heber vanishes. Grand Institute is about 20 miles from the Jackson Hole airport and Heb-
er had arrived with Marcel in the airport van. He spoke to no one that last morning; nobody saw him
leave, and no car or van had been used.  Evidently he fulfilled his mission here & somehow transport-
ed to where he needed to be next. Dr. Vogel says,
"We've been checked out by higher powers."

By next January, I'm deeply into Kriya Yoga studies & continue them for years. They do indeed, teach,
"all you need to know about energies."

Oftentimes, we know who is at the door, or calling on the phone, before our eyes or ears know it.

Our
Human Energy Fields pick it up even before our brains or physical sense do.

These Energy Fields function through the frequencies of our
Chakras__ energy vortices interfacing
with the energies of other humans, Earth and All Life Everywhere.
(Figure 2).

Consciousness precedes all manifestations of both energy and matter.
It has the power to both  create and to destroy.

Consciousness has long been cloaked in anomalies. Our old science does not accept anomalies bec-
ause they defy main-stream theories, can't be explained by the logical brain, duplicated on command,
nor measured by mechanical devices.

New science attempts to include anomalies, considering them clues to revolutionary concepts of how
the universe operates.

What to believe and who to trust, have become issues of primary concern in this topsy-turvy world of
rapid change.

How many years have we sought & followed advice from "experts" or "authorities"? How many books
were read, how many audios listened to, and videos or DVDs watched?

Only to find in the end that it didn't work for us individually?  

We need a completely P
ersonal GuidanceSsystem__ one tailored only to our individual needs, to our
unique goals and special abilities.

The wisest teacher of all dwells within us.  Look not for a savior" to come down from the mountains,
from across the sea or from outer space.

The "
savior" dwells within us; simply awaiting our contact.

A higher spiritual awareness was established in all mankind in the very beginning.

We are spiritual energy beings, playing The Game of Life in physical matter bodies.

It's time we reconnect directly with divine, higher intelligence sources. Nothing could be more critical.
As we engage in creative activities, we learn how the Inner life
__ the Subconscious alpha state__
forms the matrix for our exterior life experiences.

Our
Subtle Energy Bodies (Archives) form our body's Spiritual Matrix__  Basic Multi-Dimensional
Technologies.
They teach us how to raise our consciousness and cooperate with the Creative Force
to harmonize both energetic and material bodies.

The
First Multi-D Technology linked us with the energies of Earth and Nature.

This
Second Multi-D Technology introduces  Meditation, Dreamwork and Intuition, linking us with
our
Superconscious-Higher Self__our Spirit Within__our Primary Inspiration & Guidance Sys-
tem.

Listening to Spirit Within
The" Greater Self"__or "Universal Consciousness", referred to in this text may be viewed by some as
'"God".  In childhood, God" was viewed by some as an old man  in a long white robe and beard, who
either rewarded favored followers  or punished those who defied dogmatic religious or biblical teach-
ings.
We gave our Creator human-like aspects rather than perceiving a Divine  Force.  

We'll be using  the terms, "Spirit",  "Great  Spirit",  "Greater  Self",  "Source" or "Supreme Con-
sciousness
".

A Loving, Intelligent, Self-Organizing Creative Force
radiates from our Creator, who manifested
All That Is, Was and Ever Will Be.

This Force exists within and around every human, all plants, animals and minerals. Everything in the
Universe IS SACRED, because everything has SPIRIT WITHIN.

That so-called "
emptiness" of space __ IS__ The Creative Force.

We each have a Higher Self  to our individual personality.  

Our Collective Spirits Within__ all Humanity's & all life-forms' Higher Selves together__  
are our Great-
er Self, our Universal Consciousness, our Great Spirit.  

We seek within for Guidance because the Universal Consciousness__ IS__All That Is, in keeping with
universal purposes and for the highest good of all concerned.

The Creative Modes & Skills used for engaging in
Basic Multii-Dimensional Technologies include Int-
ention, Emo
tion ( Archives: Emote  IQ), Sound, Thought and Breath ( Breathing.html).

Connecting with Earth and linking with Higher Self in intuition, meditation or dreamwork accesses the
knowledge for creating with these skills.

The messages from Higher Selves
never come to me as a "channeling"__ as when another being or
force takes over your mind and body and controls you.

Information and guidance come as a conversation in which answers and suggestions respond to my
questions. I am never led to believe that I have to follow this advice, or that something ugly will happ-
en if I don't. They are always sent with love and kindness, & I am always fully aware of what is going
on.

These days, it's best we avoid most information from outside sources.  We need  Inner Guidance  to
make appropriate decisions, & to gain trust in the inherent goodness of life.

To access  
Inner Guidance__ Higher Self__ it is necessary to detach our mind from whatever Dimen-
sional or Density Reality (
Dimensions.html) we are in as we read this web-book.

We then move into a higher density state of consciousness__
4-D, the Fourth Density__  5-D,  Fifth
Density__ or
6th or 7th Density.  

4-D
facilitates meditation, dreamwork, visions and other paranormal actions, and teaches us to Think
and Act from Love Alone,
before we can ascend to 5-D.

If, after regular practice of meditation, you still prefer input from outside sources, try to discern what
lies behind this preference, and what is best for self.
Feel the "appropriateness" of it in your heart.

Only one thing remains
unchanged in this universe: our Connection with Source, whether we are aw-
are of it or not.  

We might say that if
prayer is speaking to Spirit, then intuition, meditation or dreamwork are listening
to Spirit.

Just as we schedule time, energy and space for eating, sleeping, exercising or creative arts, so do we
need to set aside quiet times and places for meditation or dreamwork.

After meditating successfully for some time, we may become caught up in the wonder and glamour of
the process__ the peak experiences and the deep sense of bliss and joy__to the point where we may
think these
sensations are the spiritual path, rather than using the input to make positive choices and
changes in self
.  

The sensations are only Signals that we ar__, in that moment__ in alignment with Spiritual Forces.

Although the methods below do teach us how to meditate and receive its benefits, they do not neces-
sarily guarantee overcoming negative attitudes, healing our-selves and others, establishing loving re-
lationships, or being of greater service to others__ unless we
apply the knowledge gained.  

When we cleanse our minds through meditation and our bodies through healthy habits, we invite Spir-
it' s Creative Force to enter in. Physically in harmony, bonded with Earth & Spirit, mentally alert and e-
motionally balanced, we remain blissfully alive and open to life's inspirational flows and bliss.

Spirit exists in everything, everywhere, at all  times
.

Whenever a question is born, the answer births with it.

Through Higher Self's direct line of communication with Supreme Consciousness- Great Spirit, we co-
nnect with The Creative Force before creating with spiritual energies.

Higher Self assists us to adjust habits, beliefs,  attitudes,  thoughts, feelings and  behaviors which no
longer are appropriate for us. Meditation and Dreamwork are safe and pleasant was  to recover those
deeper issues underlying our current motivations and difficulties.

One of the best habits we can develop is
Journaling__ not only our artistic, health or relationship exp-
eriments, but most  importantly __ our efforts to link with Spirit Within, Earth and Nature
; and to cope
with life events.

For Meditation or Dreamwork, Journaling is a
must. Record experiences immediately after a profound  
insight or dream, for they tend to fade within the hour.

After a year or two has passed, it's particularly enlightening  to read the Journal and view the patterns  
we're inwardly building.

Linking with Higher Self allows us to better manage mind & emotions, and live in the present moment
instead of in a troubling past or a dreaded future.

Consciously transforming our daily issues greatly accelerates our evolutionary process.

Reading over some old Journals, I recently discovered that my dreams and meditations often repres-
ented
forecasts of my life for as much as twenty years into the future.

A New Relationship With Creator is Established.
Years of meditation trigger the autonomic nervous system to alter the body. Long-term meditators gra-
dually raise the creative drive (
kundalini) up the etheric spine, opening all chakras from root to crown
and beyond  

"
Creating With Multi- Dimensional Technologies" activates when our personal creative energy ris-
es to the heart and upper body  energy centers.

This flow through each center balances and dissolves blockages, and related core issues from youth
are released into the meditator's awareness, suggesting more positive life alterations and how to pro-
cess them.

Etheric Energy Centers__ Chakras__ below heart level, relate to skills for functioning in a 3-D phy-
sical world.

* The
root center, near the base of the spine, involves connection with Earth and actual physical sur-
vival.

* The
sacral-reproductive center Issues are sexuality, material needs, self-esteem & personal values.  

*The
solar plexus center just above the waistline, refers to our relationship with other beings, with the
natural environment and our personal power. It is through here that Psychic Senses first develop.

Like creative talents, P
sychic Skills are useful tools inherent within every individual.

Though supernatural phenomena may occasionally occur to the regular meditator, the goal is
not ps-
ychic phenomena, but rather
a direct link with Higher Self-Spirit, enabling us to receive guidance for
Life's challenges, clear subconscious patterns, clarify spiritual truths, or re-design our personal belief
systems.

Childhood Memories and Past Lives often arise in dreams or meditations, asking us to deal with unre-
solved past issues.

For years, I thought if I acted, spoke and thought "
just right", my spiritual evolution would protect me;
life would be calmer and more secure.

Life,however, is more a
process of searching, discovering and learning than one of adding up fame,
fortune or rewards for our achievements and successes.

The "
awful truth" is that we humans will not develop, Unless we are faced with conflicts and difficul-
ties
.

We want Life to become easier, safer and more delightful as time goes by
; but Life is closer to being  
a series of crises that require understanding, then resolution, & finally__ integration__ and then, sad-
ly, we move on to the next challenge.

What we truly require, is TRANSFORMATION, rather than COMFORT, STABILITY AND SERENITY,  
which don't allow for growth in consciousness. Let's face it__  each time we get our acts together", we
have to deal with the Next Step Up the Ladder.

Conflict provides the tension needed to develop a strong Willl through
intentionally chosen activities,  
words, and thoughts
. If one idea does not work, we try another, then another, & yet another, until we
"get it".  

But it's much faster__ and a heck of a lot easier__ to
"go upstairs" to Higher Self,  for those answers
are all within us.
            
Meditation is the Key to successfully performing
Multi-Dimensional Technologies. As the meditat-
ing mind focuses on non-material issues__ mind becomes "
aware of being aware". From the Seeker
Stage
, we move to the First Enlightenment Stage of Consciousness Evolution, becoming aware
of how our very thoughts and feelings have an effect upon our health and even on our environment.

Consciousness  Evolution, or "Enlightenment", through daily meditation, can bring physical cha-
nges.  

Yogis use meditation to control their autonomic nervous systems, skin temperatures, breathing, heart
rate sand blood circulation.

The brain actually pulsates against the cranium, creating a sound wave that oscillates within the brain.

These virations broadcast to the nerves of the middle ear, & may be the source of the "inner voices"
sensed by meditators and channelers  

Through feedback between the heart and the aorta artery, the meditational spiraling waves electrical-
ly stimulate certain pathways in the brain.  

With long-term meditation, a circulating current is maintained, that releases stresses stored within the
brain.

Later, through long-term meditation sessions__ new neural pathways form, preventing storage of new
stresses and activating pleasure centers in the brain.

Through meditation, we can access the alpha, theta or delta zones at will, as well as accessing mul-
ti-dimensional realms
.  The peace of mind lasts for hours;  and they're the only states providing for a  
true understanding of the highest good for all involved.   

WE CROSSED THE THRESHOLD TO THE GOLDEN AGE  N
DECEMBER, 2012, AND ARE NOW  
LEARNING  HOW TO ACCESS HIGHER-DIMENSIONAL-REALMS, AND TO STRUCTURE A NEW
GOLDEN AGE REALITY..

Higher perception faculties operate in geniuses.
Mozart, Einstein and Nietzsche told of receiving in-
spiration from higher intelligences. Information came suddenly__ without request. They seemed to be
human conduits through which universal forces expressed. And their ideas arrived not in linear, piece-
meal fashion, but all-at-once__ as if with the flick of a universal light switch. Mozart, for example, upon
returning from one of his meditative walks in the woods, received an entire symphony in his head. He
would then sit down and write it out in complete & perfect order, from beginning to end, with no further
refinements.

Inspiration arrives when the mind expands to receive new ideas.

Concentration requires a focusing of thoughts into a funnel of energy allowing for a single concept to
be captured in a nanosecond
.

Intention, however, is a Spiritual Creative Skill arising through Inspiration and Concentration, setting
both origin and target for the projection of energies from one point to another.  

Entering the
Observer Stage of Consciousness Evolution__  we become spiritual warriors. How-
ever, we do battle with our
own thoughts,  feelings,  words and actions, using Higher Self to inspect
our personalities in operation, then change them at will, if necessary. Its all-pervading power is an as-
pect of Self that has long been repressed.

At the
Observer Stage, we're amazed at the power of the mind, wanting to know more about its work-
ings.

We overcome the duality of mind by perceiving conflicts as simply two sides of the same coin which,
when unified, express a broader truth.

Meditation and Brain Waves
For 50,000 years, the Aboriginal peoples of Australia entered their "Dreamtime"__ slower brain wave
states__ as they roamed the quiet Outback  here the only sounds were wind, rain or insects. During a
"
walk-about",  the elders had "dreamings", in which Nature Spirits guided them to desert foods, water
or remedies. It was a way o  being in unity with their world. On our urban & overdeveloped lands, Na-
ture Spirits usually relocate to more undisturbed areas.

Our awareness, like the iceberg, exists with only10% of our total mind visible above the waterline.

Most people's lives are run by the subconscious__ the 90% below the surface of awareness.

Meditation and Dreamwork open the subconscious to our awareness, and then the Superconscious-
Higher Self
can override the negative sub- conscious programs.

All memories from the past, programming our belief systems, reside in the
subconscious, alpha brain-
wave state
. They underlie who we believe we are, and attract situations that reflect that belief back to
us__ because
Earth's Schumann Resonance vibrates at the same level as our Human Alpha
Brainwave
s.  

While focused in alpha in daydreaming, meditative or hypnotic states, we can change impulses, desi-
res and goals at will. (See
Archives for more info.)

                                                                          MEDITATION
Meditations are consciously activated waking dreams__  brainstorms getting online with humanity's
collective mind, with Earth's inner forces or with Spirit's universal network.

Dreams and meditations can bridge us with the Creative Force to influence even time, space, energy
and matter.

Meditation electrifies us to move to other brainwave states and tap into  higher intelligences to find in-
formation stored in matter and energy fields normally not available in the waking state.

Through a meditative state we can enter multiple dimensions, one at a time,or several simultaneously.

Recent researches show a definite shift toward
theta & delta brain wave frequencies (Archives) & an
increased integration of left and right sides of the brain during meditative or psychic episodes.
                              
In ancient Hebrew, the word, "sabbath" originally meant "to sit within oneself", rather than designating
a particular holy day of the week.

The best places to meditate are in Nature __  preferably Wilderness Areas, or a secluded spot in the
back yard or garden.
* The next best is an indoor space reserved only for that purpose.
* Disconnect the phones, and avoid electronic appliances, as they can interfere with the body's elec-
  trical energy flows.
* Sit either on a cushion on the floor or a comfortable straight-backed chair.
* Keep the spine erect and upright. Do not cross arms or legs__ it "short-circuits" the body's currents.
* Keep this space and time for meditation sacred, for we create a living energy field around our bodies
as we consciously connect with the Creative Source through our Higher Self.
* Meditate at the same place and time each day, preferably near sunrise or sunset.

At first spend ten minutes quieting body and mind before actually going into meditation. Later, when
you can relax quickly, gradually extend the total meditating time to twenty or thirty minutes. As techni-
que improves, it easily extends to an hour or more, but may seem as if only a few minutes have pass-
ed.

We know the technique is correctly performed when the joyful peace it brings lasts long after we stop.

It's probably best to avoid meditating too long, as it tends to pull the mental focus away from necessa-
ry physical duties. Some people even forget to eat, bathe or feed the cat due to zealousness in medi-
tation.

Every fifteen minutes spent in deep meditation replaces an hour of sleep.This holds true for up to five
hours less sleep per night, but the body needs at least three hours to process anything absorbed dur-
ing the day.
Dreams are a vital part of the sleep pattern, and most people's eyes need more rest.

If there's trouble stilling the body, try alternately  tensing a set of muscles with each breath in, then re-
lax them with each breath out. Begin at the feet and work upwards to the ankles, the calves, knees &
aso on. At the torso, flex front and back areas separately until you reach the heart area. Then move to
fingers, hands, arms and back__ and on to chest and shoulder areas. Next, tense and relax the neck
muscles, front and back, working up the back of the skull and over the scalp, ending with facial  musc-
les. Don't forget the eyes, ears and lower jaw.

At this point you may wish to
consciously contact the cells of your body with every long, slow breath.
Again, begin with the feet and move upwards
; express Love and a Sense of Oneness  with each and
every group of cells
. Invite them and the vital organs of the body to join in connecting with Spirit.

These two exercises relax the body, and also give the mind something to think about other than one's
concerns of the outer life. As you become more proficient at meditating you won't need to do these ex-
ercises__ you'll just sit in your usual position, close your eyes and relax into the process within a few
minutes.

Concentrating on the Breath also helps.
Yogic Breathing  is a critical part of meditation. Most people
are shallow breathers, seldom using the full capacity of their lungs to charge body and mind
:

First, breathe in through the nostrils, filling the belly with air as far as possible without straining.

Second, still holding the stomach breath, fill the lung-chest area.

Third, still holding breath, inflate the shoulder areas, feel the collarbone rise up and out.  Do not force
breath
into these areas; simply allow the body to fill. Ideally, there should be no hesitation between in-
flating the three sections__ it should be one long, smooth continuous wave.

The
exhale flows out through either the mouth or nostrils, releasing air from all three body cavities at
once. Practice inhaling and exhaling until it feels natural..

Inhale through the nostrils, because air then moves upward in a double-spiraling motion
(oscilation),  
putting an
electromagnetic charge on the air components which then transfers to all circulatory syst-
ems. Whether the charge is positive or negative depends on what we're thinking and feeling as we in-
haeg
.  Whenever you have a sudden, shocking experience__ whether fearful or delightful__ don't you
naturally take a sharp, deep breath inward?  

This
imprints that emotion into your body cells.

THIS IS A 4TH DENSITY MEDITATION.
If you are doing an Energetic Intention during the meditation__ i.e.: a Healing or Manifestation__ a
Sense of Oneness
is necessary, and this is achieved by Feeling__ (not "thinking")__  that YOU and
the PERSON to be healed__ the OBJECT to be manifested__ or the  SITUATIONt o be changed__
are
ONE BEING, ONE OBJECT or ONE SITUATION..

At this point, a Prayer of Protection is usually said,  r one may pray when first sitting to meditate.

The best  protection possible, is to hold
Unconditional Love for All Life Everywhere__ including self
__ and to maintain a perfect sense of
Harmlessness as did Christ. The Lord's Prayer or Twenty-third
Psalm
are excellent; or you may create a prayer for your personal use. The author's favorite, adapted
with permission, is from
Edgar Cayce's "Search For God, Vol. I":

"Dear Creator: As I open myself to the unseen forces surrounding the throne of grace, beauty & might
within myself,  I draw about myself  the protection found in  the thought of The Christ and His perfect
sense of Harmlessness.  Let me ever be a channel of blessing,  today,  now , to all whom I contact in
every way.  Let my going in & my coming out be in accord with that Thou would have me do,  and for
the highest good of all concerned.  And as the Call comes, here am I, Dear Creator__ Send me. Use
me."

We note a major difference here: Many people use Prayer to request Divine Intervention:  "DearGod,
please do such and such for me
."

The alternative is an understanding that we were created from
energy particles of the Divine Source;  
and therefore we are
agents of that Supreme Consciousness and eager to serve Creator's purposes.
Since we are all part of Spirit-Creator, doesn't it follow that
we too, are creators?

"
Creating with Multi-Dimensional Technologies" means to Co-Create with Spirit/Creator. Therefore,
instead of "asking" Divine-Source to "do it" for us, we as
k: "How can I Best Serve Your Divine Purpo-
ses
?

Drunvalo Melchizedek and his trained facilitators taught the Merkaba Meditation in "The Flower of
Life"  Workshops
, where this author received it.

Creating a living energy field__
a star tetrahedron__ around the physical body enables ascension to
higher dimensions, protection from outer harmful forces, & an influence over
electro-magnetics. The
Merkaba meditation is so powerful that it is usually taught person to person in a private or class-room
setting, but is now available online.

Other fine meditational sources are
Self Realization Fellowship__ http://www.yogananda-srf.org/ tea-
ching
 Kriya Yoga  techniques for consciousness evolution,  The Edgar Cayce Foundation:  A.R.E.
http://edgarcayce.org/, The  Law of One Study Guide:  http://www.lawofone.info  and Paramahansa
Yogananda's
"Autobiography of a Yogi" is also a very entertaining and informative read.

Now and then outside influences intrude upon the meditating mind__ the ticking of a clock, a barking
dog, cars moving nearby.  Accept them,  acknowledge them for what they are, and assure  the logical
mind that  
"this does  not concern  us now". Then return to deeper atunement. Soon these noises will
not even be noticed.  t

As meditation continues, breathing slows. It may even cease completely for long periods of time__ as
may the heartbeat
;  but generally, we don't realize breath or heart has stopped  until meditation ends.
Suspending the breathing process is extremely healthy__science has shown that it actually
slows the
aging process
and extends life expectancy. However, do not force it, let it activate naturally in its own
time.

At some point during meditation, we become totally unaware of our body, thoughts, breath, or surroun-
dings__ we've moved to a deeper level__
Theta Brain Waves.  

We do not intend to impose beliefs on anyone here __ only to provide options __ each person's spiirt-
ual truths exist within themselves,  & meditation can unlock those truths.  We need only to respect the
mystery, the Love and the powers of the Creator and be willing to open to them.

When body and mind are relaxed, breathing slowed and rhythmic, with Love in the heart & the Prayer
of Protection pronounced,  we've nothing more to do but to request guidance and sit in the silence.

(Or__ if doing an Intention first state it aloud.) I sometimes like to simply ask, "
What do I need to know
or do now
?" And answers do come if we maintain the meditation mode steadily. Like most worthwhile
things, it takes practice.

Men tend to "see" symbols, beings or scenes in meditation, and women tend to "hear" answers given
in words, or to simply "
feel" some sort of response to their query. Of course there are exceptions, and
some people will receive numerous phenomena.

Often, nothing special comes to our awareness,  but the bliss & love experienced extend far into daily
life. Answers or suggestions received in meditation, will come with feelings of Divine Love and Peace.  
If those feelings aren't there__ then it's probably our ego speaking, or an old thought-form dredged up
from the past.

In Meditation or Dreamwork, we use both left and right brains to confront a problem.

We can even direct the brain to work on the problem while we sleep, take walks, wash dishes or surf
the net.  

But we "
pay attention" to synchronicities that relate to the problem showing up during that day or that
night __ or possibly, the following day.

Imaging many solutions without feeling a need to judge or refine them, we can have fun just  "playing
with the puzzle" until the perfect answer does pop up.

During the New Earth Reality, in order to shift with Earth, we will not only
access the right, intuitive ho-
listic brain, but
live in it much of the time.

When we've meditated long enough for a particular session,  we've only to think that thought and we
become aware of
sounds, light or odors around us, feel the chair or  floor beneath us, & open our ey-
es to find we are back in everyday consciousness.  

Do not fear being lost in meditative realms
; the inner guidance system always restores us to the beta
state.

Through meditation,  we shift smoothly into various brain wave states
;  but strangely, the exact mom-
ent of shifting always eludes us. We suddenly realize we are back in beta, aware of having been in o-
ther states, but not knowing how we got there or back.

Following meditation, our higher senses are much sharper, but our physical senses will  be dulled for
awhile. Avoid driving a car or  operating unsafe equipment soon after coming out of meditation.

Expanded wisdom can be activated within experienced meditators,  even when they are not engaged
in formal meditation.  Often, insights come when least expected__ flashes of
 "inner light" delineating
ordinary situations__ as while driving, walking, showering, making music, painting, or doing some rou-
tine task. We may not even have requested the guidance, but these happy, automatic downloads can
show us why we are experiencing difficulties, what we may attracting into our lives, or how we can go
on  striving with determination and patience in spite of unfair odds.

The day comes when we no longer need to prepare body and mind,  or use rituals to move into alter-
ed states
.  We'll do so at will__ even while engaged in some other task. Eventually,  we'll exist in "The
Zone
" day and night__ probably first in alpha, the Dreamtime. There we'll access information far bey-
ond what reason usually allows.

Later, we'll activate mind and heart within a few minutes and immediately attune to the collective mind
of humanity in
theta, or even delta.  

We're then ready to gather a group and begin to create with
Part IV: 5th Density Multi-D,Technologies.

               5TH DENSITY MEDITATIONS ARE BEST PERFORMED AS GROUPS.

In the distant past, people spent lifetimes learning to reach that point. Evenin the 20th Century, it of-
ten took many years to achieve.  Most people studied with a holy person, or traveled to sacred sites
where temples, monuments and earth energies accelerated the  process. With Earth's current intens-
ified energetics, an individual can master meditation in a very short time. Twelve-year-old grandchild-
ren learned it in five minutes on their very first try. Then performed a
5-D Multi-D.Technology toge-
ther ten minutes later.
                                              DREAMWORK
WHAT IF: Our Dreams present Creative Insights?

A few of us don't do well at meditation. For those, dreamwork is useful until they surmount inner fears
about letting something unfamiliar interfere with their minds.

Dreamwork is excellent for showing us what future realities we are creating
.  

We use dreams to access the deepest brainwave levels for information, then
Journal and analyze
them.

Start out repeating this phrase
:  "I will remember my dreams in the morning." three times  before go-
ing to sleep each night. it may take several days__ even a week or more__ before we  actually do re-
call at least a part of one dream.  

No one can  analyze our dreams  except  ourselves.

Use a Journal for writing down a recalled dream as soon as possible after waking in the morning, for
they usually fade from memory in a short time__  at least in the  beginning.  Write the dream down on
the left-hand page after waking. Later in the day, examine the writings and analyze them on the oppo-
posite page. Soon we can see how certain symbols and events in the dreams connect with one's per-
sonal outer life.

Every image in a dream__ be it an object, situation, person, animal, color, number or other symbol__
reflects some aspect of yourself
.  

Perhaps a Black pyramid means "unknown information". Red color may imply anger, danger, wounds
or sex. Even nightmares contain incredible amounts of creative energy. All dreams serve both individ-
iual and planetary health & wholeness. They are important information factors in consciousness evol-
ution.
"Dreams, Your Magic Mirror", by Elsie Sechrist, is very helpful in learning to interpret person-
alized dream symbols.

Most people who
consciously create use dreams as inspiration.

Robert Louis Stevenson received his idea for  "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"  from a dream. Steve All-
en
, of TV fame,  wrote more than 4,000 songs and 30 books, which he claims were regularly influenc-
ied by his dreams.
Ingmar  Bergman's films were inspired by dreams.

Many musicians, such as  
Johannes Brahms, Igor Stravinsky and Richard Wagner, used dreams
for original works as well as for revision of pieces begun in a waking state.  Contemporary rock stars,  
Bruce Springsteen and Prince are said to have  composed in their sleep, and Albert Einstein rec-
eived the
Theory of Relativity in a dream. Psychiatrist Carl Jung  analyzed common images and the-
mes running through the dreams of  large groups of people t otally unknown to each other.  Incredible
similarities in these dreams evolved into his idea of humanity's
Collective Unconscious.

The classic approach to Dreamwork is to first write down in specific words__ what it is we wish
to learn from the dream
before falling asleep, & say aloud three times: "I will remember my dream
in the morning
". Then forget it and go to sleep.  It may take several nights,  perhaps a week or more,
but you'll one day recall your dream every morning  if you truly wish to do so.  Keep paper and pencil
near your bed & write them down as soon as possible, as they fade rapidly. You may find that import-
ant words or phrases such as "
catch the next train",  "blatant" or  "parasols" are either emphasized or
repeated during a dream. they are important signals to help you remember those words or phrases in
the morning. As you recall them, they will trigger your memory of the entire dream.

It is highly valuable to be part of a group regularly sharing dreams. We stimulate each others' subcon-
scious minds to open more fully in a trusted,  supportive environment.  Each of us has certain images
or words holding personal meaning for us and few others.

I often saw birds in my dreams__ either odd-looking birds or birds doing somrthing unusual. They sig-
naled me to
pay  attention__important information was coming later. I no longer have bird dreams; af-
ter having accessed higher states,  real live hummingbirds,  magpies,  turtle doves appear close to my
window, and woodpeckers, crows or ravens tap on my windows to herald messages.

Dreams offer healing powers.

In the early
1980's, I had digestive problems. My dream request was, "How can I prevent these stom-
ach upsets?
"  

I dreamed of a circle of wagons much like the old western films, but these wagons had glass doors on
their sides.  Each compartment held  a type of food. Taking a plate  to help myself,  I sampled a bit of
food from each wagon until I reached the milk wagon. The door wouldn't open.

The next wagon held cheese, yogurt and clam chowder, and opened easily.  

Next morning, I wondered why I could have cheese and chowder, but not milk__ all were dairy produc-
ts. A  little experimentation proved I could eat or drink
cooke__ but not__ uncooked milk. Following the
dream advice, I had no more digestive trouble.  

Although, unknown to me then, in the early
1980's dairy cows were first given antibiotics and growth
hormones to increase their size and milk production. I was  severely allergic to antibiotics.  One of my
artist friends and her husband used to have a dairy. She told me that federal regulations announced
that no antibiotics were allowed in cows milk when it was sold for public use. However, my friend se-
cretly told me the truth was that a small percentage of antibiotics wsd allowed when the mild was sold.
Although the dream never put a name to the imbalance, it did show me how to cope with it.

Lucid Dreaming
With continued practice, we one day achieve Lucid Dreaming__ dreams in which we know__  while
experiencing the drea
m, that we are indeed dreaming.  

When this occurs, it signals we are ready to use dreams even more creatively.
Lucid Dreaming is exc-
ellent for making decisions. As before, we first write down the  question before sleeping.

During a lucid dream,  one part of us acts as The Observer Self, who directs The Dreamer Self to do
certain things,  and The Dreamer Self will comply.  During the dream, we try out various possible end-
ings to it.

All probable answers are offered within that same dream. While still in the same dream,  we return to  
its beginning again and again
; each time acting out a new resolution and watching what follows. We
are, in effect, viewing P
roprobable Future Timelines in our private Dreamtime.  When we awaken, we
review the various solutions, choose what appeals to us and act on it in waking life.

Dreamwork's only drawbacks are that it's often difficult to interpret them__ and of course, we have to
wait for answers until we've slept through a night or two. Meditation is faster, always available, more
direct and easier to interpret. Some dreams, however, are so vivid, so "real", we cannot tell whether
we are still dreaming or awake at that time
, and wonder if we're having a paranormal encounter. The  
test for this is to
try to switch on a light during the dream. I've never been able to produce more light  
within a lucid  dream. If it doesn 't light up__ we are still dreaming.

Another "test" is that, while in a dream, we may be looking at a certain scene, person or object, and if
we look away for a moment or two, then look back at that scene, person or object, it will be different,
or it has moved
.

If it is not different or in a different place, it is either an awake experience, or a "waking vision"__not a
dream.

These vivid dreams are probably the most important to our consciousness evolution__ we don't forget
them within a few hours as with ordinary dreams. In fact, we may remember them the rest of our lives.  
We can have days or weeks of extremely vivid dreams__ complete with intense emotions alternating
with periods of absolute blackouts of__
no dreams at all!. Some researchers believe that dreams ind-
icate
Creation's flow of Time from the Future, rather than something coming from our past.

Both dreams and meditations indicate
what's percolating inside us that hasn't yet manifested; i.e. :
W
hat we are Creating for our Future.

Higher Intelligences
Higher Self, Creative  Force, spiritual guides, angels, nature spirits and all dimensional evolutions of
life can be reached through both dreams and meditations.  

When first we link with  
Higher Self,  It may appear to us in a familiar form that is completely accepta-
ble at that particular time. Those people may perceive
H.S., as an angel, a saint, Jesus, Buddha, Mo-
hammed or other holy person. Others might sense an opera singer, a master artist, a biblical charac-
ter, a famous writer or a beloved deceased relative__ even an "alien".  

As time goes on,
H.S., takes the guise of other familiar figures so as to keep us comfortable. Eventu-
ally, when we're ready to fully accept having a Higher Self, we discover that instead of  those glamor-
ous characters, it was really H.S. in disguise. Anyone apprehensive about "who" or "what" is speaking
or appearing in meditation, can state aloud before starting that  "
only beings of highest good and div-
ine purpose may respond
"__ or replace meditation with dreamwork for awhile.

The five Basic Multi-D Technologies are tools for transforming our personalities.

Creativity begins in the Higher Self relationship. Through meditation and dreamwork, H.S. takes each
of us by the hand and leads us step-by-step to reconnect with our basic goodness,  enter the Dream-
time__ the Zone__ and access all the knowledge & skills needed to live well on the planet and Come
Home Again to Who We Really Are. This prepares us to raise our vibrations, perform personal trans-
formations and Co-Create a New Earth Reality.

Yes, there will be caatastrophes and hardships in various places around the world during the years
ahead, but everyone,  positive or negative,  will ascend into some version of another Density
.  And it  
won't  be the End of Earth __ It will be the beginning of a New Consciousness and a New Earth.

If you doubt you are linking with Higher Self, try this: before meditating
:

Write down this question, "What is it I can do for the highest good of self and those I contact that will
prove to me I have truly connected with Higher Self
"  

Then enter the meditative mode.  When you feel lovingly connected,  repeat the question aloud,  and
listen for the answer. As soon as it arrives, don't stop to analyze; just immediately say "Thank you", &
without thinking, write down what was received as fast as possible,  without trying to make sense of it
while writing. This is necessary so ego does not step in & attempt to change something ego might not
want to hear. Then read what was written, and act on it soon.

At first, we may receive a word or two, a short phrase, a vivid image or be guided to a page number in
a book__ often the Bible or a favorite  inspirational text. A trip to the library, a phone call to a friend or
relative,  or a "Google Search" may give further information on whatever H.S. gave forth. Go for it__
no matter how silly or confusing it seems.  

When H. S responds to a question, it's best that the information be acted upon as soon as reasona-
bly possible. If, after repeated meditations, many informative clues have been given out, but the rec-
eiver fails to follow through on them, the connection to H.S. will most likely withdraw until a person is
ready to follow inner guidance.

But when advice is used or acted upon, more and more information ensues. Eventually, the connec-
tion between H.S.and the conscious mind becomes clear, complete & continual
; and we will seldom
need to go into a formal meditation. Guidance arrives in the moment it's neede__ or even before
.

Sometimes H.S plans for us to encounter one thing, when body or mind wishes another. But how can
body or mind overrule H.S.?  Doesn't Higher Self always remain in control?

Like Creator, H.S. __ a fractal of Creator__ will never force its plans upon us, never demand obedien-
ce, for we're here taking part in a Free Will experiment. Anyone or anything claiming otherwise seeks
to control through fear and negativity.

Once we've
Bonded with Earth and Connected with Higher Self, we have completed the first two
steps in "
Creating with Multi-Dimensional  Technologies".  The original plan for the human race was
that each of us will one day
consciously become our H.S., and once we've done so, there's always a-
nother H.S. to that one,  and another one,  and so on __ all the way back to the Supreme Conscious-
ness__ Greater Self__  Spirit. There will come a day when we will have conscious knowledge of and
complete consensus with Creator's Plans, forever in blissful Oneness with that Greater Love.  

Like Higher Self, advanced evolutionary orders do not interfere with the lives of individual humans un-
less invited, as is true of beings connected with minerals, plants, animals and energetics of the planet.

There are three orders within
The Great White Brotherhood:__ the Order of Michael, the Order of
Enoch
and the Order of Melchizedek. This last is in charge of assisting humans to transform Earth via
human consciousness.

They prepare those of us sincere in the pursuit of enlightenment to work closely with the
High Comm-
and,
which is directed by Archangels Michael, Uriel, Raphael, Remiel, Yophiel, and Gabriel.

"Light", or cosmic information, is brought into our world by Gabriel and other evolved intelligences.  
St. Germain, of the Seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order and Magic  (the "Purple Ray") has been clo-
sely connected with the Idaho Stargate Vortex. He has revealed himself to a number of people in the
southeastern Idaho area, as well as people around the world. St. Germain and The Seventh Ray are
associated with feminine powers, and are increasing that influence over all humanity and Earth at this
time.

Discerning Truth from Fantasy or Lies:
One of the first concerns we have about meditation or dreamwork is: "Am I being inspired by gods or
by demons
?"

Deep within our beings lie great riches, but there are also mental & emotional dumpsters heaped with  
old consciousness garbage waiting to be cremated. Inspirations & revelations can be distorted by ego
and by dependence on mass media or social op-inion. Listening to authorities outside ourselves is of-
ten comforting because it gives us someone to blame when things go awry. But before we can trust
our inner guidance system, we must learn to discern true from false teah-ings and messages.

How do we know what to accept or to discard? Our Inner Self knows the difference__ Consider the
choice we are about to make, and if it
feels "lighter"__ "more loving", then it is right for us. If it feels
"Heavier
"__ fearful, then it is not the best for us.
'
Our greatest challenge is to BELIEVE THAT WE ALREADY HAVE ALL WE NEED TO  EMBRACE
TRUTH,__and then get out of our own way. The Universe is knee deep in TRUTH, because in Med-
iation, we are One with Supreme Consciousness. Truth & Wisdom, therefore, exist everywhere. What
we consider Wisdom can come through someone else, both friends and those opposing us
; from na-
ture, books, music, art__ even from what we think of as the every day nonsense of life.
Staying open  
to all sources without prejudgment is the Key
. Perceiving what rings true for us comes about by show-
ing up & listening in a disciplined way
; or it can come from simply developing our inborn ability to rec-
ognize such Wisdom from the inside out. By carefully paying attention to what Life offers__ our Inner
Self will quickly learn to recognize any Truth that vibrates in accord with our spiritual path.

The answer we receive in dreams or mediations  may not be one we thought we wanted, but it will be
the right answer for us in that present moment.  Truth evolves, too__  Answers will arrive only as we
need them, or are ready for them, and not all at once. The only thing that remains the same in this un-
iverse__ IS CHANGE__ and so, answers will change also, adjusting to our need to know at this time.
We only really need one scrap of information at a time__ and the courage to accept it. It's just the sa-
me as the steps we take__ one by one__ to speak our Truth to others. We show that we accept an a-
nswer by acting on it. The answer__ call it Intuition, Wisdom, Insight or Inspiration is always a means
of shifting from preconceived
possibilities __ to Inner Truth probabilities.

Doubt, Confusion and Anger are the many faces of Fear, which are of our own making and only need
to be "let go". We will always know Truth when we hear it; so if we persist with faithful practice of me-
ditation or dreamwork, Truth will show up precisely when and as we need it__ fear not-with-standing.  
Feeling Doubt or Confusion are sure signs that our notion of the situation needs adjustment. By cont-
inuing to listen inwardly for the Truth of a challenge, fear evaporates into blissful clouds of loving war-
mth as inner peace wafts gently through our body, and, we greet Truth with a welcoming  cry__ "
Oh,
Of Course! That's it
!"__ and we are instantly inspired and empowered to move forward.

When seeking the answer to a particular problem or circumstance__ especially in the early stages of
developing our "ear for truth", we often stop if we hear something that sounds familiar to what we had
considered on our own before requesting aid from "upstairs".  We may fear that immediately grabbing
onto the similar reply as "our truth", might send us on a false lead, turning us away from more pertin-
ent answers that Wisdom wanted to provide for our future directions.

With practice and experience__ once our connection to Inner Truth is clearly established and fully ac-
cepted__  
the first answer heard inwardly is most likely to be the one to follow up on. Yet,  unless we
stay open to additional potentialities, it's all too easy to become confused by the ego's infusion of
dis-
belief, doubt, belief or opinion
. These feelings, of course, are a sure sign that this is ego conscious-
ness at play, and should be discarded.

Karma occurs when what we project outwardly to others recycles back to us from a different outside
source with ourselves as the new "target." Once we understand about Karma, we have usually enter-
ed
The Observer Stage of consciousness evolution. Time will tell whether a message is true or not
Another good reason for
Journalin__; we can go back and re-read the original message.
                   
Peak Experiences
Once connected with Higher Self, glimpses of the future may appear in dreams or mediations__ later
to be confirmed by outer events,  or several
Synchronicities__ "Peak experiences"__unusual visions,  
dreams, mind-opening encounters, "pops", wakeup calls__ can arrive, requiring explanation. We won-
der how and why these paranormal phenomena happen?  Are there laws or higher forces behind their
occurrences? Just what skills can  H.S. help us attain? Is there a limit to these powers? Can we mani-
fest them at will? How do we access them and use them?

Peak experiences occurring while engaged in creative activities, dreamwork or meditation, open us to  
spiritual themes woven into our lives. We are hard-wired for these downloads; our brains, DNA, nerv-
ous systems and  bodies were set up for them  eons ago.  

As we continue our sacred journeys of  self-discovery, S
ynchronicities: repeated, incredible coincid-
ences
increase.  Each synchronicity is a signal that we are, in that moment, conected with the plane-
tary energy network and the collective mind of humanity
;  i.e., we are "linked in" temporarily, and they
may be pointing out a direction in which we may positively move
. The next step is up to us, with the
approval of H.S..

New talents can appear. We may be
clairvoyant, clairaudient, have healing abilities, read people's
energy fields, communicate with other life forms,
or have a gift for astrology, geomancy, earthkeep-
ing
or communication with the non-living.  

"For many of us, the greatest difficulties we had in childhood or teens turn out to be simple misnder-
standings, misapplications of amazing, unrecognized hidden talents
."  Whether positive or negative,  
peak experiences provide glimpses of
a future potential gift  birthing within us. Pay close attention to
ideas received, no matter how outrageous, and keep records of them__ for we have the power to ma-
nifest them, providing we follow inner guidance and keep striving with integrity.

People who feel they have become "
Born Again Christians", have usually had a recent peak experien-
wnence. If we have an unusually intense mystical encounter and believe it has enlightened us, we ne-
ed to consider whether it was a truly transforming event or not.  Listing peak experiences, both posit-
ive and negative, & examining them without emotion, we can better understand our personal origins &
probable destinies.

First, we examine how we behaved, thought, felt, or believed
just before the peak encounter occurr-
ed. Then we consider what, if anything,
has changed about those aspects. Unless we are behaving
differently, feeling, thinking or believing differently, & anchoring the inner changes with carefully chos-
en actions, we have
not  had a true shift in consciousness.

We've had a wonderful,  amazing__ perhaps informative__ encounter
;  but unless we've become a
more enlightened, loving person soon afterwards, it's most likely
not a true spiritual transformation.
We haven't yet been "born again."__ "
Ye shall know them by the fruits of their labors;  not by their
roots
."

It takes courage to follow inner guidance. Any new creative work can be risky at times. A temporary
enlightenment or success doesn't automatically insure a quick fix or an immediate smoothing out  of
life's path. Often, the inner voice gives only partial guidance. The information was designed to encou
rage us to search further or take new action.  It's best not to ask for too much information, transforma-
tion or guidance in a short time.  Every bit of insight brings
responsibilities for the new possibilities it
presents. These responsibilities can accumulate__ perhaps beyond our present ability to ground ea-
ch of them into reality. Ask for guidance when truly needed, then act upon it,observe it, and consider
it as a teaching experience, learning from the results before attempting more.

In the fullness of time, we come to completely trust our inner vision and guidance as we journey to-
wards Home
.  We come to perceive how all beliefs, religions, philosophies and spiritual paths stem
from the same Creative Source
.  All have value.  All need to be respected. We learn that our ultimate
purpose on the planet is
not to "be perfect". The blessing of our struggles is to learn from our exper-
iences, to
harmonize our personalities, to Become as One with each other & Great Spirit in Uncon-
ditional Love for All
__ to know, accept, honor and love ourselves; to accept all others and situations  
with the  same loving heart: to serve the fulfillment of goodness, peace, health, abundance & joy for
Earth and Humankind; to "JUST "BE"__ "IN THE "NOW"
. Honesty, honor, humility, trust, humor, mod-
eration and balance are qualities to develop in order to contribute to a United Global Consciousness
:
a
Unity Consciousness__ a Christ Consciousness.

If the spiritual being that is you is to create__  and by creating__ Know Who You Really Are,
you will
eventually learn to operate successfully and at will, with or without a physical body
.  Whether we're  
aware of it  or not, an unconscious telepathy is at play within us.

Our spiritual bodies are energetic lighthouses signaling various forms of both physical and  non-physi-
cal lives. When a human is filled with loving joy, positive entities sail into his energy fields. On the oth-
er hand, if he becomes immersed in negative emotion, thought or behavior, his
aura becomes a murky
beacon attracting dark entities and situations
: to feed on his fears and intensify that darkness until he
learns to harmonize his feelings.

Once we learn to meditate or monitor our dreams, we no longer need an "expert', an authority or inter-
mediary__ a priest, minister, guru__  between us & our Creator.  We need no one to tell us what God/
Spirit is like, what Spirit says or does, or what Spirit expects of us. We can go within, Become as One  
with that Loving- Intelligent- Self-Organizing, Purposeful Creator and receive our own benevolent ins-
piration, peace and guidance, designed only for our own well-being.

If you remember anything at all from this Chapter,
REMEMBER THIS: "ALWAYS ASK PERMISSION
FIRST.
 AND:YOU MUST BE ABLE TO EVOKE ONENESS AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR  ALL
LIFE  EVERYWHERE  WITHIN YOUR HEART & ENTER "THE ZONE" IN ORDER TO CONSCIOUS-
LY CREATE WITH MULTI-DIMENSIONAL TECHNOLOGIES
"
