Greetings and Love I, Lord Merlin, extend to all beings of light aware and awake to connect with my energy and listen to my words. It is a gracious time upon the planet Earth now, as well as the Universe of the Creator. A time of deep blossoming and powerful transitions from duality to integration. A time when love becomes the foundation rather than the goal. For me, Lord Merlin, when love becomes the foundation of all that you are, this is when you recognise the magic within you and that of the Creator. Take a moment to contemplate, is love your goal or your foundation? If love is your goal, then you are continuing to focus upon the embodiment and expression of love. If love is your foundation then you have progressed beyond the conscious awareness of embodiment and expression of love, instead you recognise yourself as love in action within every moment of your reality. Remember that no one can be love in action all the time, there may be times when you feel the opposite of love, notice this as a healing and release process only and not a reflection on how well you are doing in your spiritual evolution.
Upon the inner planes, I, Lord Merlin, hold an ashram which is akin to a school of divine magic. My purpose is to guide and enrol souls who feel drawn to me into the divine magic of the Creator, within and around them. To do so is to open their awareness into the divine flow of the Creator, experiencing and integrating this flow into all they create. To be as one with the divine flow of the Creator is a magical and empowering experience which requires the process of mastery to allow for full involvement. Within my ashram we engage with the divine flow of the Creator, contemplate duality and aid transitions connected to and associated with duality. Deep blossoming of the truth of the Creator are encouraged as well as deep blossoming and the release of false ideas and energies. A focus on love as a foundation is at the core of my teachings, encouraging you to live and create from this deep-seated space of love. Thus, with my support you recognise the divine magic of the Creator emerging from within and pouring into all that you are and create.
My school appears to be within a magical woodland upon the inner planes, the elementals are always present. As are beings that you deem purely magical or fictional. To walk through my ashram is to feel as if you have been transported to another world, akin to a portal where every sight is magical and awe-inspiring. This is of course exactly what happens in my ashram. You will feel a surge as you enter into my ashram on the inner planes, this surge is an awakening of your divine innocence which allows memories of the Creator to flood forth into your awareness.
Lord Merlin’s Six Week Program
Due to the blossoming transition, of which I have spoken, occurring for souls upon the Earth, I wish to open my ashram and school to all souls upon the Earth for a six week transition and ascension awakening program. To enrol in my program of spiritual advancement I share with you an invocation:
‘Lord Merlin, I invite you forth to share in my presence as I share in your presence. It is my wish from my conscious mind to enrol myself in your six week transition and awakening program. If it is my soul’s sacred wish as well, please may my soul give its consent now. I understand that by enrolling in Lord Merlin’s six week program that I am giving my consent for Lord Merlin to work with me at an energetic level for six weeks and for me to visit his ashram during my sleep state for tuition, guidance and support. In enrolling in Lord Merlin’s six week program I wish to engage with the divine flow of the Creator, contemplate duality and aid transitions connected to and associated with duality thus experiencing integration and oneness with the Creator. I wish to experience a deep blossoming of the truth of the Creator as well as deep blossoming and the release of any false ideas and energies. A focus on love as a foundation so I may live and create from this deep-seated space of love. Thus, my goal is to recognise the divine magic of the Creator emerging from within and pouring into all that I am and create.
I understand that Lord Merlin will assist me sometimes with my conscious awareness such as during meditation and other times without my awareness, whichever is most appropriate and valuable for me. I realise that my role is to call upon Lord Merlin as much as I feel guided in the coming weeks, to meditate calling forth Lord Merlin and to hold in my focus the key transitions Lord Merlin wishes to assist me with.
I express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for the love and support shared with me during this time. Thank you.’
What to Expect
During the six week period from when you first affirm the invocation shared, you may not experience anything different within your reality, being and spiritual evolution, instead transitions will take place within your higher self. Alternatively, you may experience my guidance strongly encouraging you to make changes within your life or being to aid ascension or assist in the transformation of Mother Earth. The more you read the invocation shared and focus on the purpose of the invocation, the easier it will be to recognise transitions within your being. The outcome of my six weeks with you will be precisely what you need to further your spiritual evolution. This may not be the same as what you desire and you may not be able to recognise the transitions taking place, however, everything your soul wishes to manifest, and embodiment will come about.
The Purpose of the Six Week Program
- I, Lord Merlin, work personally with you to aid your ascension, this can take place within your reality and within my ashram on the inner planes during your sleep state.
- Connect with and experience the divine flow of the Creator.
- Contemplate duality and aid transitions connected to and associated with duality thus experiencing integration and oneness with the Creator.
- Experience a deep blossoming of the truth of the Creator from within your being as well as deep blossoming and the release of false ideas and energies currently hindering you.
- A focus on love as a foundation rather than a goal, therefore being able to live and create from this deep-seated space of love.
- The ultimate goal, I, Lord Merlin, wish to support you in embodying is the recognition of the divine magic of the Creator emerging from within and pouring into all that you are and create.
Meditation for Use During the Six Week Program
First focus upon breathing deeply, then allow yourself to repeat the following words: ‘Lord Merlin, I invite you forth to share in my presence as I share in your presence. Please allow me to remain physically present upon the Earth as you transport my awareness to your ashram on the inner planes. Let us enter together into your Chamber of Divine Magic. As we sit together support me in seeing, sensing or acknowledging the divine magic of the Creator within and around me. Please intensify my abilities to recognise the divine magic of the Creator, enhancing my inner trust and inner connection with the truth of the Creator. With each breath I inhale I am connecting on a deeper level with you Lord Merlin, divine magic and the Creator. Thank you.’
I am here to support you in the coming weeks if you wish to invite me forth,

Your Unseen Limitations Transformed into Liberation by Lord Merlin
Channeled through Natalie Glasson – Original Source: Sacred School of OmNa
I am Lord Merlin, I support Master Kuthumi and Master Sananda in their role of World Teacher. It is my purpose to distribute and activate from within souls and aspects of the Creator divine wisdom, knowingness and remembrance. When you call upon me to accelerate your spiritual evolution and ascension, I will enter into your reality like a tornado, demonstrating to you your potential of spiritual evolution in the now while also highlighting and bringing to your attention areas that require healing and cleansing. My support and encouragement are deeply loving, however, I will also not allow you to escape or ignore the transformations which are available for you to experience. Many believe I enhance their discipline and mastery because I am truly dedicated to supporting you along your spiritual evolution. If you feel the calling within your being, then you may request that I become a part of your community of guides to support your spiritual evolution and ascension in a way that allows you to exist as your sacred potential upon the Earth. Please make this request only if you are ready to dedicate yourself to your inner divine awakening.
Every person upon the Earth has a pure heart and a sacred soul, each person is a reflection of the Creator and has the possibility to be a true transmitter of all that is the Creator. Can you recognise yourself and those around you in my words? You are all radiant beacons of the love, consciousness, light, and truth of the Creator, this cannot be disputed or taken away from you, it is your divine reality. The only reason you may not recognise this as your divine reality is that you are also creating a reality of disconnection with the Creator and more importantly disconnection with yourself. The Earth’s reality can be distracting as it is deeply embedded in illusion, searching outside of yourself and thought conditioning, thus sometimes you do not even realise you are disconnecting from yourself and limiting your true expression. Fear and not wishing to be judged or ridiculed can also play its part in hindering your self-expression. There is something even greater that hinders your self-expression which is the limitations that you place upon yourself which you do not even realise are present because they are a natural part of your being, reality or the world.
Exercising and Accessing Liberation and Freedom
Imagine for a moment that I invited you into a sacred chamber within my ashram upon the inner planes, this space is known as the Chamber of Freedom and Liberation. As you enter into the chamber it is akin to the loss of gravity, except it is not gravity that departs from you it is limitations. Existing within the chamber you already feel lighter, brighter and a greater sense of freedom to express yourself. Now imagine that you have the growing ability to express yourself truthfully and free from any restrictions. How would you appear? What would you feel? You may be able to grasp a sense of the freedom of your self-expression which is available to you. I, Lord Merlin, wish for you to imagine that you run through yesterday as a complete day from morning to evening in your mind. Take time to acknowledge and become aware of any areas, situations, conversations, actions or reactions where you limited yourself and did not allow yourself to be your true self. Maybe there were times you hide away or reacted from fear or anger. Maybe there were times when you really wanted to achieve something but got distracted or felt not good enough. You may become aware of negative thoughts you said to yourself which lowered your mood or dissuaded you to act.
The more you practice this exercise the more you will begin to recognise the ways in which you limit and restrict yourself and expression of the Creator in your everyday life that go unseen or unrecognised by you.
The second part of my practice is to imagine that you run through the same day once more acting, reacting, thinking, feeling and being from the space of freedom and liberation within you. Thus, expressing the truth, love, and consciousness of the Creator through your being, allowing it to impact your reality and experiences. At first this may seem challenging; however, you will notice that it becomes easier the more you engage with your true self and natural ability to express yourself and your truth.
Notice the difference between the reality you experienced and the reality you realise is available to you. I, Lord Merlin, am not asking you to instantly change the way you act and react upon the Earth, instead, I am inviting you through my practice and also by visiting the Chamber of Freedom and Liberation on the inner planes during meditation to alter and shift your perception of yourself. This is to realise where you limit yourself and yet have never recognise the limitation as a restriction of your true self and expression before. The more you realise the unseen or even habitual limitations you create and energise about yourself and the world around you, the easier it is for you to release and let go of these habits. As you create freedom and space within your being so you will naturally become an expression and radiant beacon of all that is the Creator, because you create the opening for the Creator to be present with you. Your thought processes also shift as you no longer become attached to energising and creating illusions, instead your attention turns within you and to the sacred possibilities and opportunities that are available to you when you allow yourself to be connected to yourself and aligned with your inner truth/expression.
Can you imagine your life differently, filled and overflowing with the freedom to be your truth, essence and a divine expression of the Creator? This is what I, Lord Merlin, am asking of you now, as you will create a tremendous shift and transformation within your being that will continue to grow and expand prosperously. Take time to visit my Chamber of Freedom and Liberation whenever you feel guided. Allow yourself to observe your thoughts and actions, invite yourself to contemplate, how would the expression of the Creator that flows through me think or act in this moment. Remember you are not changing yourself or trying to be something you are not, instead you are inviting the sacred love, light, truth, and consciousness of the Creator to flow through you, as this is your natural ability. Every moment you limit yourself, put a barrier up before you or between yourself and others, you are diminishing the flow and divine inspiration of the Creator in moving through you, as well as supporting and carrying you forth. I, Lord Merlin, am inviting you to empower your relationship with your natural and truthful expression of yourself and the Creator, rather than energising your relationship with habitual limitations and self-created boundaries. When you are expressing your true self and Creator you will always act and react in a loving, respectful and peaceful and powerful way, this you can trust in.
Are You Limiting Your Ascension?
As you observe more and more the presence of the limitations you create and energise you may realise that you are limiting your ascension through the thoughts and beliefs you create about the progress of your ascension and what you are capable of in your ascension. These two areas are susceptible to illusion and limitations because it is easy to fall into a space of being impatient with your spiritual progression and comparing your ascension pathway to the pathway of others. Thus, creating a feeling of understanding your goal for ascension and yet feeling it is impossible to reach. Engaging with and projecting these thoughts and experiences onto your current experiences is deeply limiting and creates a feeling of disconnection with yourself. You become trapped in a vicious circle. It is therefore important to realise, recognise and observe the limitations you create about the progression of your ascension and the possibilities you have available to you in your ascension process. I, Lord Merlin, invite you to visit my Chamber of Freedom and Liberation during meditation with this subject matter in mind, I will be present to support you. You can begin by imagining what would your experience of your ascension be like if you experienced your ascension as liberating and freeing. If you realised that there were multiple potentials and opportunities for your ascension to progress daily in inspirational and empowering ways. Then contemplate what you wish and desire as your ascension goals, then imagine yourself as an expression of the Creator what would be possible for you then. Observe the judgments that you create about yourself, the limits you put upon your potential and how daily you create an impassable boundary for your ascension progression. Simply realising and recognising this will allow openings within your being and perspective allowing you to gently and easily lift the limitations and restraints you place upon your ascension, thus experiencing freedom and liberation in all areas of your reality and spiritual growth.
In a vision of freedom and liberation for you,
Magic. Such a simple and overused word….. yet, magic is exactly that…. a feeling and experience of our Multi-Dimensional Experience/Existence here…..
Magic emanates from within. Magic is a KNOWING that we hold, it’s a sparkly, tingly, excitement… an ENERGY that we reconnect with from deep within.
Magic is a part of our ancient heritages… the ones that are pure. Clearing the distortions of these, is a part of the unconscious realms, which is also a part of our awakening and remembering process here.
Magic is a/our natural and REMEMBERED STATE…. is an energy and a frequency that we function from, it’s how we live our lives…. it’s fun, exuberant, vibrant, full of life, mystical and available when we are open and living this way…. from deep deep deep within.
Magic is a part of MULTI-DIMENSIONALITY……. it’s where we become the magician and alchemist here. It’s where we create, inspire and “do the magical things”…. on a Quantum Heart Consciousness Level…..
Magic is where the higher dimensional realms open up, it’s full of and comes from all of our GIFTS…. and activates infinite abundance.
Magic occurs when OUR VIBRATION IS HIGH and when we’ve cleared out/shifted out of those unconscious ego programs of our own separation we held within. Magic occurs when WE LET GO and get out of the way and UNIFY through openness, love, purity and “no more resistance”, protection and ego-based programmed/conditioned fears…..
Magic is in/through our every sacred breath, as we play, as we breathe and we inJOY through our innocence and purity here….
Magic is a multi-dimensional convergence here….. where we experience LIGHT in our own reality…. over the density of before….
Magic is through the Gift that WE ARE and sharing this with all….. Magic is SEEING the GIFT in ALL and not going unconscious to “forget” anymore…..
Magic is a part of our NEW EARTH QUANTUM EXISTENCE here…. magic is a part of our “super human” gifts, abilities that we bring forth from all of our existences here….
Magic is free and light and a SURPRISE…. MAGIC is through our own REMEMBERED CONNECTION…. and it’s simple, it’s not complicated like it was with our human ego aspect mind……
Magic is a PRESENCE….. ours. It’s natural, organic, Light and Free and open and sharing and kind…. it’s considerate, respectful, curious and ready to explore and awaken through “new”, which is just our REMEMBERED STATE when we are truly ready with our whole BEing here…..
Magic is available to each one of us…. as we are ready…. and it “appears”, just like “magic” in our everything….. in our lives, our experiences, in our feelings, in others, in things…. because all is the ENERGY OF MAGIC…. and this…. this was always available and laying dormant…. deep deep within each one of us to find, locate, access, activate and bring forth from within us and transmit out into our external dimensions to experience fully….. here…. now…. always…. again. ♥
Magic is just one small part of our RETURNING to Full Consciousness again/here. ♦
Magic occurs as we maintain purity, Harmonic and Divine Alignment and flow, and are in-tune in every way. ♫
Embrace your magic, the magic, all magic, the magic of all fully…. bring it forth from within you …. and yes, it will “appear” in your physical as you do! ♥
I love you! Have a most magical and amazing everything….. as a part of your own NEW Earth Experience here too. ♦

Release the fear. It sounds easy, it’s ridiculously hard to do. Fear layers itself around our chakras, our organs, our aura, like an onion. It deadens the vibrations of our beating hearts. Freezes our systems. Paralyses us emotionally and stunts our energetic evolution. We evolve as soon as we release fear from our being. The matrix conditions fear into us. Fear of death, god, angels and demons, illness, loss, war and poverty.
Rejection and retribution, scandal and sorcery. The architects of the matrix know they must keep us in low vibratory fields if their deception is going to work. When we raise our vibration the masks slip, the darkness cracks, light floods into our being. We shed our matrix avatar. We transform, inner to outer. Upgrades kick in. We come online with higher wavelengths of emotional frequencies.
Fear is heavy, dense, low wavelengths. It lowers the vibration of our systems at a cellular level. Fear is used to keep people’s vibratory field lowered, trapped in the third dimension longer than we should be. Horror films targeted at teenagers aren’t just silly frights for silly kids. They are programming tools. Fear of the unknown, monsters, demons and so on. Organised religion works in a similar way. We are given rules, parameters of behaviour and thought, with dire consequences if we break them.
Our minds fixate on imagery. We are vulnerable to mind games, strategies that programme us without our knowing. To be in fear frequency is to be inside our heads. It is to be as far away from the present moment as possible. Stress and anxiety compound fear, lock it down into our chakras, our heart beat, our mind set. We forget how to let go and trust the universe. We stop communicating with ascended beings who can offer us protection and guidance. We tie ourselves up with guilt, shame, misery and depression, neglecting our mind body soul health.
There is sensory resonance, algorithms to fear, that can be triggered. To break this synaptic conditioning we retrain our brain, we raise our awareness of the symptoms and signs of fear. We recognise it, we acknowledge it and we let it go. Fear is a waste of energy.
We can be cautious, canny and careful without being fearful. We cultivate stillness so we can hear our energy. We learn to trust our feelings beyond what we are told or see. We stop fear when it comes knocking. We breathe out anxiety. We release all we can in the face of tremors, trials and terrors. We become energetically street wise. We protect ourselves daily with mantras, crystals, ritual and meditation. We tune into our higher self for guidance with self care and self love. By releasing fear layer by layer we lighten our energetic beings. We create space for love frequencies. We excavate the roots and plant seeds of love in its place.
Ancestral karma has to be peeled back, it holds dense fear in its energies. Negative behaviour patterns plaguing family lines broken, finally. The darkness, brewed by centuries of karmic lockdown on a prison planet, has caused deep rooted cruelty, neglect and decay. Breaking free from expectation limiting creative expression, is not always an option physically. We can break away energetically, emotionally. We can cultivate self knowledge.
Our families, colleagues, neighbours can be the loudest mouthpiece for the matrix. It is often they who judge and criticise us for being who we truly are. Tread carefully friends. Seek independence. Stay street wise. Remove ancestral layers in talk therapy, exercise, creativity and meditation. Seek to assert your sovereignty calmly. Recognise people’s limitations. Lower your expectations, this protects from disappointment and vulnerability. Be compassionate. Breathe.
As the layers come off we get to our true selves. Our mind body spirit being. Our physical, mental and spiritual health. We clear blocks, loosen and let go of fear from each chakra. Our energetic flow increases, our consciousness expands. Root to crown we release fear by consciously changing what and who we interact with, and how we process our environment. We centre our core. We open our mind to the reassurance of a quantum multiverse. We focus on establishing strong, easy flow of energy throughout our system.
Those stuck on the human hamster wheel of the earth matrix, have been short changed. This awakening is about freeing those souls from a prison they don’t know they are in. Realigning a planet and her people in fifth dimension light. Balance, core strength, agility, an open mind and expansive heart come from resetting our cellular frequency to love.
All of this is occurring on the material plane. We wake up to manipulation, lies and deceit. Who can we trust? We trust the universe. We trust source. We trust our higher self. We trust our angels. We trust our gut. We trust energy. Gratitude, compassion and creativity ground our beings into higher dimensional realities. Magic is high frequency. Magic is found in nature, in creativity, in love vibration. Look for the magic, recognise the fear and release it. Lighten your load cosmic surfers.
There is magic everywhere, in our hearts, our lives, our world. Raise your frequencies and embrace the miracles, mysteries and mysticism of this incredible time. Spend time with gratitude. Hang out with solitude. Relax in zen meditation. Reflect and rest. Energy will go where intention flows. Open your heart to love frequencies cosmic surfers. Namaste.

When rainbows and magic are what we hold in our hearts, minds-eye and whole being…. this is what materializes in our physical reality outside. Opening portals, anchoring higher dimensions by way of holding all of this from within us… for all of us here. When it’s time to become multi-dimensional (now)… choosing to leave old realities for the “unknown”…. we had to say YES, without knowing or understanding all. Our human aspect fears what it cannot control… now look at this… bliss, amazing paintings fill the skies, and pristine energies fill our Quantum Unified Field SPACE….
This is about our presence, our connection, our own openness, our own realizing what is available for us all and Choosing our realities, aware of what we allow our minds and emotions to Create for us here… using our higher heart & mind consciousness intentionally from our purest unity-consciousness-love….
Granted, Kauai made it easier for me to hold this, through its supporting frequencies, yet I had to achieve this within myself before ever coming here and hold it for NEW EARTH to appear all around me in my physical, when I still lived mainland…. coming here was so that I could vibrationally support my Crystalline LightBody easier/more, integrate immensely and continue to anchor at an expedited rate, while focusing on global consciousness and fulfilling in-soul-service faster and surround myself with nature/Gaia to accomplish a ridiculous amount of important things….
NEW Earth is birthed from within each one of us and we hold this vibration in all that we do and are, with every exchange and experience, with our relationships…. our entire REALity is NEW Earth…… it materializes all around us, through our own inner-to-outer connections…. through REMEMBERING fully again.
Unity-Love-Consciousness is how we treat each other, it’s our own respect, kindness and consideration for all from within… it’s our love that makes a difference and creates/anchors more NEW Earth for all of us here.
You will be asked/shown/see to do many things that won’t make any logical sense (to your human), because realities are vibrational… not linear… and until you can clearly see the other dimensions of what has already occurred, you won’t get to see the answer first, as the purpose is for you to create a RELATIONSHIP with you/your Universe/all of your higher selves, to build trust and hold honor and integrity from the depths of your soul, that was not accessible before because you had too many unconscious matrix programs of separation that you still held inside…. and as all of those limiting/fixed/non-believing mentalities dissolve within you, as you stop holding on out of fear, as you stop insisting/telling the same old stories… you will start to desire a whole new life/existence here…..
This new life is NEW Earth and it’s already here. It’s all around you just waiting for you to transcend the old everything from within, waiting for you to choose your highest existence, instead of the old one that you perceive as safe still….. waiting for you to let go, move on, open up, be ready and desire more than “just enough to get by”.
You are the one that must come to realize that the more you open up, share, the more you embrace your own light and stop playing the judgment games…. how easy all becomes here……
What you RECEIVE is based upon how open you are, how much you contribute, support, share and truly care. Not because you want something (old program that stops awesome from coming forth), yet because you realize how it takes us all in unity and love here.
Where you hold out/hold back, this creates your own lack for you to keep experiencing until you are ready to step forth/up/share, come together and be the ONE…..
It took years to consciously and intentionally work though my own deeply embedded human programming to get to the point that I could understand, open up, share, trust, see, hold unity, peace and pure love inside of me. It took overcoming separation/duality/lack through my own dedication, perseverance and relentless focus on what I knew/saw that I was here to be/do, on a Soul Level… with it changing every nano-second along the way….. it took me stepping into my own believed fears to dissolve them, my own re-connecting to step back and let realities dissolve, my own desire to anchor new/higher realities here and my determination to g’it’r’done…. to step up and obliterate as love, a power that transcends all lack that exists… it took “time” for me to achieve each vibration and integrate for higher timelines to materialize here. It took my “not listening” to those who didn’t yet believe, trust, see or understand… to see others’ judgment as their own separation/limits that they still held and to not let it influence what I KNEW within. It took embracing the crazy stuff, working in simultaneous dimensions to activate realities to anchor in here. It took standing up, being the light, stepping up, when no one else did….
It took me accomplishing the “seemingly impossible”, being willing to do whatever it too to clear my own separation and continue to anchor Heaven on Earth here, to do what I saw was necessary for what I came here to do, and not listen to the doubt, not succumb to the lack of support and to make the important realities happen, through my own willingness and commitment to us all. It took knowing that all along the way, others would “get it”, truly be ready & dedicated to OUR NEW EARTH too, and that the vibrations would rise high enough for us to come together in the most magnificent ways. It also took me not needing anyone to do anything, weeding through those not quite ready yet, holding the spaces creating the reality for us all and holding it fully in place…. It took me letting each go, because all was no longer vibrationally aligned, knowing we were to do our amazing realities separately (from now on or for awhile)…. it took me loving and respecting them and loving myself/respecting me too… and not needing all of us to be in the same physical space, because once we connect as souls here…. we are always connected and don’t need to be in the same space to hold love and respect for each other…..
Our NEW Earth relationships are a reflection of ourselves, how open our hearts/minds/souls are open/present, how we communicate, treat each other, support each other, care and share…. There must be unity, respect and love present and we must let our own lack go and not bring it into the equation. We use our relationships to see ourselves, to show us what we could not otherwise see, to activate more love, inspiration, kindness and to dissolve the old as it presents. We hold responsibility for all from within ourselves and we gift responsibility to each just the same. No one is broken, needs to be fixed or changes… we are either able to synchronize or we are not. Our heart/mind/vibration dictates this….
Everyone has the same capabilities…. to open up fully now. To connect to UNITY LOVE inside, to be this and to come together as this here. Not all will, because they still need other experiences to assist them with this before they are ready/willing/able, yet we open the opportUNITY for each. We don’t judge others holding hesitation and fear, because they don’t yet understand there is no threat here. We are the ONES that SHOW them (WayShowers), by being the vibration we desire to experience here….. We hold the highest timelines in place and all materialize on the same vibrational plane as each are truly ready to live/exist here……
We do not compromise on love, respect, integrity, honor, kindness, unity, full consciousness….
Each one of us are responsible for the reality we experience here. Our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, actions, energy ALL CREATE….. the only difference now is all is vibrational and instant…and where each is not fully conscious and in-tune, then this creates a reality for all connected/occupying that space….. we all have the capability to transcend entire timelines and shift dimensions at will…. some will, some won’t (yet)…. and every experience is a reflection of this.
Shift up….open up to the magic all around. If you don’t feel it or see it yet, then open up more and more and more until you do. Open up until it’s all that you feel…… only you can.
It’s not the location, it’s y/our vibration…
I love you. 💕 Let’s do this huge!
Lisa Transcendence Brown
Ahhhh, don’t you LOVE awakening to the magic and amazingness that comes with these higher frequencies when you are FREE INSIDE from absolutely everything? When all you’ve got to do is get up, focus on making a difference, focus on sharing more love, more light, more knowledge of our NEW Earth Existence now?
Don’t you LOVE just allowing all to unfold/materialize for you, with ease? The brilliance of these vibrations and the beauty of all in unherolded by anything before (here on this physical earthly plane).
We now move into the POWER of the SUPER FULL MOON as the 11/11 Gateway opened and now leads us into the SOLSTICE GATEWAY…. which will open with the Super Full Moon in a few days… We continue to go higher in frequency daily, yet thus far today, again… very soft activations right now…..
Now, we have entire collectives in different places vibrationally, different phases of their own Soul Awakening Journey and “levels” of consciousness (only using the word to describe, for we don’t compare here). Some just now waking up, startled, confused, lost… Others still deeply entrenched in the old programs not realizing those are their own realities collapsing so that they can wake up too, many in the sleeping phases anchoring photonic light & the Lucid Dream here, many walking in the lucid dream finally, playing and having fun, becoming light-hearted so that they can move into full-service mode and those in full-service mode, who get up each day and literally work…. to reach the masses who are in seeking/ research-mode right now trying to understand/make sense of a very confusing process… which is how it begins for all in whatever way each chose to experience this. We also have so very many leaving the bliss phase and moving into multi-dimensional existence where each figures out/learns how to balance all from within, while anchoring the new realities easier and “manifest” easily, which is what we call materialization (where physical matter takes form in response to all that each generates/puts out vibrationally and physically for their Universe to RETURN vibrationally a RETURN to support your work in-service, your new fully and infinite abundant realities here now…. There are easy keys & codes to each of these realities. Which is why we share! ♥
Collectives EXITING THE MATRIX SIMULATION, so LightKeepers you step into your next phase now too. As old timelines collapse, new ones open up…. simultaneously…. this is how it works.
The beauty is when you are the one in COMMAND, AS a Higher Self, as an Ascended Light BEing, as a Master, as a NEW Earth Inhabitant, then you are the one collapsing them intentionally, because you can, because it’s one of your natural and innate gifts that come forth organically as you hold more Quantum Light within. As you are fully awake and fully conscious then realities are those that you are intentionally and constantly creating/activating to come forth…. You can see/feel them floating around you in your field and you are just constantly surprised by the awesomeness when they “arrive”/materialize in the dimension you are in, which is when you vibrate into that dimension, for they are the same thing here.
So, I do hope you are ready for MORE! Because we are always just getting started, we are always experiencing new, we are always shifting, tuning, embodying more of our Divinity to IN-JOY and experience here now.
Have a truly magical day, see the GIFTS and OPPORTUNITIES in all. See what you could not see before, because your own heart/mind wasn’t open enough yet… Every bit of this is up to you. YOU have to step-up in every moment. You have to utilize all of the gifts to activate more gifts to come forth. This is how it works. You call forth more magic and brilliance as you do!
Deep profound sacred respect and love from my heart-soul to yours. Play, have fun and breathe it all through you……… REMEMBER…………. and get busy when called from within. ♥

Magic and Alchemy are possible from the manipulation of the dream through mentalism. The realization that all of our reality is occurring in the mind allows the exit from the matrix through the understanding of the big picture. Time travel becomes possible as we lift ourselves into another reality where time is fluid and changeable.
Understanding of the structure of the holographic illusion we are in will help us to remember how to manipulate our reality. We are dreamers dreaming inside of a construct, which has universal principles. We chose to dream for experience and to take that experience back to Source. Our external reality reflects our mind within. On a fractal level, as above, so below. We are everything and everything is us.
Everything is energy vibrating at a certain frequency. In our reality, energy is made up of waves of light, sound, heat, consciousness, and electromagnetic fields oscillating at various frequencies. The dark agenda vibrates at a slow frequency. In order to change our reality, we need to vibrate above that frequency while existing in the construct.
Our universe has polarity- Negative and positive, love/fear. In order to change the fulcrum form a dominant, controlling and negatively polarity steeped in fear, our oversoul sent a fractal of itself here in a body in this lifetime. This fractal, our current consciousness her in this body, serves as the “boots on the ground” and the eyes and ears of our oversoul.
The oversoul’s goal is to raise the consciousness and vibrational frequency of the body in order to activate the cell’s “junk” DNA. The planet is also vibrating at a faster rate and humans are being helped to keep up with that frequency. Each person that raises their frequency contributes to the overall polarity of not only the planet, but the Universe as well.
Time is only relevant in the third dimension. Time was created to experience this slow vibration reality. In a positive reality, experiencing time isn’t such a bad thing. However in a negatively controlled reality, time can be manipulated and humanity can also be manipulated to steer toward a particular timeline.
This reality is created in cycles within cycles. The good news is that we are at the end of a grand cycle that allows us to exit one reality and enter another if we choose to. Planet Earth has chosen this timeline and we have the choice to join her. Alchemy is required to change our cells from carbon based to crystalline, and to consciously transmute negative energies and thought forms to positive. We do this through a mind that is run by the heart vibration of love rather than the ego’s fear mode.
By realizing that through the principle of vibrational resonance and the law of attraction, our actions have an opposite and equal reaction and we draw our reality to us through our thoughts, actions, and deeds. In order to change a reality that is not desirable, we can do the work to change our thoughts, actions, and deeds.
We are a fractal of our oversoul and have the ability to connect to other aspects of our oversoul. When we connect to other aspects, we can consciously work on transmuting lower energies for them just like we are doing in our physical body. When we accomplish this, our oversoul becomes more positive and whole and allows the universe to be more positive and whole.
We are doing this work whether we realize it or not. If we consciously work towards the highest and best timeline we will get this accomplished faster than others. It hasn’t been an easy road but we have been collectively forging forward each day. We have found ourselves battling other aspects of our oversoul (past life energies), third dimensional programming, black magic, and triggers that try to keep us at a low vibration.
Some magic tools that can be used to recant and spells, black magic, programming, and hitchhiking energies are repetition and incantation. Every day as you awaken you can say what you want to happen in your reality. You can also call on the highest aspects of yourself for help, as you are the eyes and ears and you have the free will to change what’s above by being below or inside.
For example, here is a magic spell that can move you toward the goals mentioned in this article:
“I now call on my higher self, guides, oversoul, and Source to help show me my highest and best path, and to assist me in transmuting all lower vibrational energies that I am connected to. I am open to receiving the highest energies of Source into this body, which I imagine now coming into my body and burning away all that is not in my highest and best good. I also connect with my oversoul’s other fractals, or my past and future lives, and I send forth this Source energy to cleanse all that is not in my oversoul’s highest and nest good. I am ready to serve and I am grateful for the opportunity to be in this body at this time in the unfoldment of the Universal plan for ascension”.
In the interview below, I spoke with a friend of mine, Cindy Staffin, who fell down a large hill and broke her leg. She could clearly see it was broken and no one knew she had fallen down the hill. By repeating “back in time” over and over for several hours, Cindy healed the broken bones in her leg before she got help and arrived at the emergency room for an X ray.
Another example of repeating an incantation is shown in the movie Somewhere in Time starring the Superman himself, Christopher Reeves. In this movie, the character, Richard realizes ha may be able to travel back in time by focusing on the date and time he wants to be in . He repeats this date and time over and over and finally after days of trying, he falls asleep and awakens in the past.
The oversoul fractals inside the construct have gotten lost and have inadvertently agreed to stay in the construct, not knowing there was an exit from it. We are awakening to who we are and why we are here. Most of us are here to exit this construct through vibrational resonance alchemy and magic, and to bring as many fractals as we can with us.
When you realize that you have the power to influence your reality in the highest and best interests of all, you can begin to stand in that superhuman power to create the reality you want. The highest vibrations of love and gratitude can be magical for you as you heal aspects of your oversoul. Time will become fluid and you will have the ability to go back in time to affect the now and the future. Raising your vibrational frequency above the lower 3d and astral realm will make you invisible to those who wish to siphon your energy. Magic will then begin to sparkle in your world and affect everyone around you.

The Frequency Technicians deliver a powerful message with one precisely focused intent– to connect you with your OWN Sovereign power. Every word and every silence is encoded with vibrations that will spark that connection within you on many levels and in many ways. Never before have the Frequency Technicians transmitted directly through me, yet all of a sudden they insisted on doing so with such compelling urgency that I dropped everything and sat down in front of the camera. As you will soon see, the result is a video unlike any I’ve ever made with the celestial team. The energy is palpably intense– I do not even LOOK like myself when the Frequency Technicians come through me, for one thing! For another, their powerfully delivered encodings did interesting things to the video while it was being processed. You’ll hear sounds every so often that were not audible while filming, and the lighting is much dimmer than it actually was in the room… all of it was somehow refocused on me, alone. DO NOT MISS ANY OF IT!!! It is alive with layers and layers of encoded frequencies that will activate your OWN recognition of the sovereign power that is encoded in your DNA and is alive again! As the Frequency Technicians say, “Herein lies all you need to know.”
BRAVO and gratitude from my heart to each of you who offer a reciprocal energy exchange for what you receive from/through me by hitting the “donate” tab at http://www.thecelestialteam.com. It is your freely given support that makes it possible for me to continue to freely offer all that you receive.
Namaste and much Love/Light to You– Judith (& the celestial team, of course!)
Non-acting is great mystery to our mind. If we do not act, we just sit there passively in one place, we soon starve to death here in the world of forms and shapes. The very essence of this world is the constant change, the constant action.
A lot of us would like to do nothing in life and still live a good life. But if that desire is fulfilled, and we try to live without doing anything, we will very soon be bored of passivity, and we soon find something to do in order to expell boredom.
So it is really difficult not to do anything, because we are used to doing something all the time. Our parents and teachers always told us that are actions determine what kind of a person we grow up to be. Our personal identity is therefore rooted in our actions and the results of our actions. The book of our personal history is the chronicle of our actions and results. We are what we have achieved during our life.
If we do nothing, or our actions do not bear the expected fruit, we–as a result of our upbringing and education–feel that we are not useful members of society, and we should be ashamed in front of the other people. It will sooner or later lead to disturbances in our self-evaluation and the emergence of a negative image of ourselves. On the other hand, if we are constantly active, and our actions are successful, we will be respected members of our society, appreciated and highly esteemed by the other people. As a result, we will have a good self-evaluation and a highly positive image of ourselves.
The idea of action is rooted in our socially conditioned mind, the Ego. The ideas of achieving, obtaining, acquiring something are all present in our Ego-dominated mind as forces urging us to act. The desire to control, to lead and manage are also powerful factors that spur us to act.
But if we are able to reach beyond mind and its forces making us act, the Miracle, the great mystery, unfolds in front of us, and we realize that the real state of our existence is non-action.
This non-action is, however, not identical with being passive in the world of forms and shapes. We can be active in the state of being non-active, we can perform our work, we can bring up our children, and we can keep in touch with our environment. The magic of non-action is that we no longer identify with our actions, the motivation and the results of our actions.
In this way, even if we do something, we do not become the actor in the action. But it is only possible if we give up all ambition to be in charge, to be in control, and submit to the present moment, accept it and we do not try to change the moment to match it our own ideas.
If we give up the idea of action, things suddenly begin to happen by themselves. It is the highest level of surrender. When we have quieted down in this way, the moment will carry us away, we do not need to change and the action, the deed just happens.
When the resistance against the present moment is over in us, the Life, the Miracle virtually carries us away and takes us to a direction that leads to the original state of Consciousness.
This is the experience of the Miracle itself, perfect harmony with Existence in which there is not separation, there are no parts, only the whole Completeness.

On August 8th of your earthly time, many will experience the incoming energies, for the Lions Gate will indeed open and allow the energy to come through to all the light workers. As this occurs many of you will experience the expansion of your energy body, your physical body and your consciousness. Many of you will experience yourself becoming denser and heavier, and yet larger than life, at moments you will feel as if you are about to burst, worry NOT, for what you will be experiencing is a collection of energies that you are then to anchor into GAIA on August 25th.
We the Hathors from the ancient order of light, are asking you to get ready and open your hearts wide, dear children of light and love, open your hearts for the beauty for the creation of your own selves awaits!
For the theme of the portal that is about to sweep your planet is MAGIC – as you truly open to the divinity within your hearts and soar up into the sky like the eagle free at last, free at last!!!!!! YES indeed it is true, for you have freed yourselves from all the agony of the past!
But let us return to the moment at hand, for there are those amongst you and there are those that are walking this earthly plane of existence, who have not yet reached the highest destination of their souls, and for those, there is about to occur a dark hour, the dark hour of the soul, for what is a dark hour of the soul, but an opportunity to recognize that which they are? And we say onto you that it is precisely what is about to occur…
Those of you who have walked through the veil, who were courageous enough to face themselves and their own ego, have indeed soared higher than the eagle in the sky. For others, the journey is to begin NOW.
For once they are again bathed in the loving light of the Alcyone Central Sun of the Pleiades, their true essence will rise to the top and their ego will try hard to hold them locked in a cage of fear, hatred, anger, irritability and confinement. Their EGO that knows not any other way of survival, will create fear in their minds in order to hold on to this world, in order to hold on to the one thing that it does understand – the matrix, the 3D existence. For it knows not any other way of survival and it wishes to remain in power. Please understand dear children of light, that the EGO is not the enemy, it is part of oneself, and one is simply to embrace it in loving light and reassure it that it will continue to exist as long as it allows one to remain in balance.
Therefore we ask all of you light workers, at this very important moment in time, to anchor you truth, into the mother GAIA to anchor your light and loving energies and spread this light and love to the whole of humanity, for when the gates open on August 25th, Humanity is going to experience another influx of energies to such high degree that many will simply go into the opposite direction of ascension, running to hide behind their EGO’s, holding on to what no longer has any place on this plane of existence.
To lessen the blow and prevent this from impacting the earthlings to such a high negative degree, we ask that each and every one of you to open your hearts to the energies coming form you respective planets, and from the Central Sun and act as anchors to anchor the energy into mother GAIA, so that from there she can then feed this energy to all who walk upon her, in order to ground each of her children as they battle within their own selves and to stabilize them in order to facilitate a positive outcome for all involved.
On August 8th of your earthly time, many will experience the incoming energies, for the Lions Gate will indeed open and allow the energy to come through to all the light workers. As this occurs many of you will experience the expansion of your energy body, your physical body and your consciousness. Many of you will experience yourself becoming denser and heavier, and yet larger than life, at moments you will feel as if you are about to burst, worry NOT, for what you will be experiencing is a collection of energies that you are then to anchor into GAIA on August 25th.
And so, we ask those of you who are ready, and you will know who you are, to go into a deep meditative state on August 8th and simply allow the new energies to bathe and to store within your very being, within your heart within you sphere of enlightenment. For from this moment you are going to fully expand into your true selves. And from that very moment you are to expect MIRACULOUS EVENTS TO OCCUR IN YOU LIVES. Carry this energy that you will receiving hibernating within your sphere, savoring each and every moment that this energy is fully present within your being, let is merge with your soul, your heart and your body, let it circulate throughout your very being, getting stronger and stronger by the second of every moment, until August 25th, when you will finally unleash this tremendously strong, loving, peaceful, harmonious energies into the Mother GAIA.
Keep this energy steady, DO NOT ALLOW YOUR MIND TO TAKE YOU INTO ANY NEGATIVE STATES.. for even if it shall try it will not succeed. For you have passed the ring past not, for you have passed beyond the veil, for you have fully aligned with your purpose of being, those of you who will begin to experience the expansion of your bodies, the expansion of your true being, will understand that which we speak of.
This even is of HIGH IMPORTANCE to all of humanity, for a new wave of enlightened ones will emerge once the “dark hour of the soul” comes to an end. For those that will be able to withstand the new energies, and be brave enough to face themselves with tremendous support from each and every one of you, once they walk through the veil of forgetfulness, it is then that they will join your ranks and walk onto your path – The path of liberation and freedom of humanity from their own EGO’s, from their own self destruction, from the wheel of karma.
And so, expect that new souls will enter you domain, expect more questions to arise, expect more wonderful stories to flood your internet, expect new strangers to stop you in the streets and tell you their life stories and the magical and magnificent experiences happening to them. Expect more and more stories to emerge of how they are seeing through to 5D. For indeed it is happening on your planet. For indeed you are moving in the right direction. The direction of your TRUE SELVES.
We the Hathors, the forefathers of your vehicles creation that you call the human bodies, are standing before you, once again in line with you energies, once again, with open arms and open heart ready to assist you, ready to guide you, ready to be guided by YOU, standing by your side, as you plunge ahead and lead humanity out of the veil of forgetfulness and onto the magic road leading them to their true magnificent selves.
We love you. We are with you. Goodbye for now.
Personal Note: Last night as I set down to mediate, I’ve experienced something that I only experienced when I was a little kid before. All of a sudden I began to expand, beyond my body, beyond the house that I was sitting in, beyond the neighborhood, and all the way expanding, further and further out beyond the planet, as I felt myself expand, I actually began to feel that I am expanding into a ball, a sphere that is becoming more and more dense, as if I am a huge rubber ball that is about to burst. It was incredible as I looked down on earth and everything seemed to be very tiny, I continued to speak as I began to channel the information that you have read above. It felt that I have expanded to the size of the earth and have covered it completely with my energy. I continued to expand further out into the cosmos, and move further and further away from the earth, all the while continuing to channel. While it was happening I felt incredibly free. Once I realized that I am no longer in my body, I did not want to come back. I felt FREE, POWERFUL, And IMMENSE. I have expanded to my true self – a big ball of fire 😉 – no an energy sphere which is what we all actually are. Spheres of loving light.
The reason I’m telling you all of this here, is that WHEN some of you experience this, for you not to freak out that something is wrong with you, but to understand that you are simply becoming your true selves, free, magnificent beings of light and love 🙂. Once this happened, and I’ve fully expanded, I started to wonder how will I ever condense myself back into a tiny little body that is sitting in the living room channeling the info. It is then that I began to repeat the following words “Condense me, ground me, bring me back” over and over again, until I’ve finally felt that I began to shrink, actually condense, become smaller and smaller and finally fit right back into my body. The important thing here is not to rush to open your eyes, but to make sure that you are fully grounded and connected to all your senses, to just sit there for a few seconds feeling your hands, feet, etc., wiggle them, and THEN open your eyes. Still sit for a bit to allow yourself to fully come back, and then go about your day J HAPPY TRAVELS EVERYONE!!!!

*The following interview with countercultural pioneer and bestselling novelist Tom Robbins was originally featured on ‘Reality Sandwich’ in June, 2012 by Tony Vigorito…
Tony Vigorito: Alan Watts once wrote that we actually haven’t the answers to the most ordinary of questions, such as “What’s going on?” or “Where am I?” So let’s start with these allegedly mundane inquiries. What’s going on? And where are we?
Tom Robbins: Christians, and some Jews, claim we’re in the “end times,” but they’ve been saying this off and on for more than two thousand years. According to Hindu cosmology, we’re in the kali yuga, a dark period when the cow of history is balanced precariously on one leg, soon to topple. Then there are our friends in the counter culture who believed that last December 2012 we were in for a global cage-rattling which, once the dust settled, would usher in some great spiritual awakening. I hope they’re bearing up well under the disappointment.
Most of this apocalyptic noise appears to be just wishful thinking on the part of people who find life too messy and uncertain for comfort, let alone for serenity and mirth. The truth, from my perspective, is that the world, indeed, is ending — and is also being reborn. It’s been doing that all day, every day, forever. Each time we exhale, the world ends; when we inhale, there can be, if we allow it, rebirth and spiritual renewal. It all transpires inside of us. In our consciousness, in our hearts. All the time.
Otherwise, ours is an old, old story with an interesting new wrinkle. Throughout most of our history, nothing — not flood, famine, plague, or new weapons — has endangered humanity one-tenth as much as the narcissistic ego, with its self-aggrandizing presumptions and its hell-hound spawn of fear and greed. The new wrinkle is that escalating advances in technology are nourishing the narcissistic ego the way chicken manure nourishes a rose bush, while exploding worldwide population is allowing its effects to multiply geometrically. Here’s an idea: let’s get over ourselves, reduce our carbon footprint, adopt an animal from a shelter, go buy a cherry pie, and fall in love with life.
Tony: You’ve written nine novels and brought to life a rowdy pantheon of memorable characters. Perhaps it’s not fair to ask a parent to pick their favorite kid, but is there one among these characters that you wish was living here among us today?
Tom: While he’s not really a major character, I’d nominate Dr. Yamaguchi from Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas (my least popular novel, though it’s perhaps the one most relevant in today’s bushwhacked economy), because (1) he’s devised a cure for cancer (the ninja enema) and (2) his philosophy embraces mindful goofiness and extreme personal behavior (crazy wisdom) as possible pathways to enlightenment. On the other hand, I also wouldn’t mind seeing Pan (Jitterbug Perfume) pawing the earth in the White House rose garden, or Stubblefield (Villa Incognito) showing up occasionally to feed reality sandwiches to the delusional philistines and corpulent corporate cannibals on Fox News.
Tony: Terence McKenna was fond of saying that the world is made of language. As a master wordsmith and a personal friend of Terence, what do you take this notion to mean?
Tom: Regrettably, Terence and I never discussed this notion specifically, but my sense is that he was getting at something more profound than are the texturalists, who contend that nothing ever written matters or even exists outside of the text: the actual words an author has put down on the page. And likewise more profound than Wittgenstein, who famously said, “All I know is what I have words for.”
What seems likely is that Terence was not only contending that the universe is a genetic, extra-dimensional, interspecies verbal construct, but that it exists primarily as a result of our consciousness of it. What he may actually have been implying is, “the world is made of imagination.” There is, after all, a possibility that when it comes to consensual reality, we’re making it up. All of it. And language is the universal medium by which we identify and explain our creation to ourselves. Language lends reality to reality.
I do recall hearing Terence say once that everything in nature has stories to tell; not just scientific information to impart, mind you, but something akin to plot-line narration, if one is equipped to “read” it. That has overtones of woo-woo I know, but doubtlessly sensitized by his special connection to the psychotropic properties of plants, he had a way of making a process like photosynthesis sound like a pre-biblical epic.
Tony: Knowing how painstakingly you craft words, I suspect you believe as I do that every word is a magic word. Obviously you have chosen to use your magic to enlighten, but do you think it’s fair to say that many lesser magic-users are prone to something resembling dark magic?
Tom: Certain individual words do possess more pitch, more radiance, more shazam! than others, but it’s the way words are juxtaposed with other words in a phrase or sentence that can create magic. Perhaps literally. The word “grammar,” like its sister word “glamour,” is actually derived from an old Scottish word that meant “sorcery.” When we were made to diagram sentences in high school, we were unwittingly being instructed in syntax sorcery, in wizardry. We were all enrolled at Hogwarts. Who knew?
When a culture is being dumbed down as effectively as ours is, its narrative arts (literature, film, theatre) seem to vacillate between the brutal and the bland, sometimes in the same work. The pervasive brutality in current fiction — the death, disease, dysfunction, depression, dismemberment, drug addiction, dementia, and dreary little dramas of domestic discord — is an obvious example of how language in exploitative, cynical or simply neurotic hands can add to the weariness, the darkness in the world. Less apparent is that bland writing — timid, antiseptic, vanilla writing — is nearly as unhealthy as the brutal and dark. Instead of sipping, say, elixir, nectar, tequila, or champagne, the reader is invited to slurp lumpy milk or choke on the author’s dust bunnies.
Tony: Robert Anton Wilson wrote, “Society is the devil’s masquerade,” while Terence McKenna cautioned, “culture is not your friend,” and of course all of your writing is peppered with anti-establishment protagonists and provocateurs. Is society in some general sense a dangerous distraction to the human project?
Tom: I’ll say this much: virtually every advancement made by our species since civilization first peeked out of its nest of stone has been initiated by lone individuals, mavericks who more often than not were ignored, mocked, or viciously persecuted by society and its institutions. Society in general maintains such a vested interest in its cozy habits and solidified belief systems that it had rather die — or kill — than entertain change. Consider how threatened religious fundamentalists of all faiths remain to this day by science in general and Darwin in particular.
Cultural institutions by and large share one primary objective: herd control. Even when ostensibly benign, their propensity for manipulation, compartmentalization, standardization and suppression of potentially disruptive behavior or ideas, has served to freeze the evolution of consciousness practically in its tracks. In technological development, in production of material goods and creature comforts, we’ve challenged the very gods, but psychologically, emotionally, we’re scarcely more than chimpanzees with bulldozers, baboons with big bombs.
In East of Eden, John Steinbeck wrote that there’s never been a great creative collaboration. When the Beatles first burst on the scene, I thought they were proving him wrong. Later, we learned that Lennon and McCartney had each composed their pop masterpieces separately, individually. So it goes. Genius may stand on the shoulders of giants, but it stands alone. However, I digress.
We humans have always defined ourselves by narration. What’s happening today is that we’re allowing multi-national corporations to tell our stories for us. The theme of corporate stories (and millions drink them in every day) seldom varies: to be happy you must consume, to be special you must conform. Absurd, obviously, yet our identities have become so fragile, so elusive, that we seem content to let advertisers provide us with their version of who we are, to let them recreate us in their image: a cookie-cutter image based on market research, shallow sociology, and insidious lies. Individualism is bad for business — though absolutely necessary for freedom, progressive knowledge, and any possible interface with the transcendent. And yes, it’s entirely possible to function as a free-thinking individual without succumbing to narcissism. This can be tricky at times, I suppose, but then so can the tango — particularly if you’re dancing alone.
Tony: Synchronicity has been described as evidence that this assemblage of separate personalities that passes for life are merely the infinite faces of an underlying unity — perhaps similar to the “clockworks” you describe in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. What are your thoughts on this, or more to the point, do you have a memorable story of synchronicity you’d care to share?
Tom: What we, thanks to Jung, call “synchronicity” (coincidence on steroids), Buddhists have long known as “the interpenetration of realities.” Whether it’s a natural law of sorts or simply evidence of mathematical inevitability (an infinite number of monkeys locked up with an infinite number of typewriters eventually producingHamlet, not to mention Tarzan of the Apes), it seems to be as real as it is eerie.
One night I inexplicably dreamed of a horse race. It was won by a steed named Seafood Kabob. The next day I telephoned a guy I knew who did PR for the racetrack outside of Seattle and asked him, half jokingly, to let me know should he ever come across a horse by that name, as I was prepared to bet the ranch dressing on it. Not a week passed before he mailed me a racing form in which I read that a horse named Seafood and another called Shish Kabob had finished strong in the Louisiana Derby a month or so earlier. I did not follow the sport and was totally unfamiliar with the Louisiana Derby. Now I wish I could report that I followed up on it — began buying racing forms, contacting a bookie, and winning big bucks on the horses in question — but, alas, I became distracted and let it pass.
Another example: In Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, I have my male protagonist take the female protagonist, on the occasion of their first date, to a lecture on the disturbing dwindling of the world’s frog population. While touring for that book, an interviewer from the St. Petersburg Times inquired if I was aware that T.C. Boyle had written a story, published some months earlier, in which a man takes a girl on their first date to a lecture about the global disappearance of frogs. Well, I’d neither read that story (I still haven’t) nor heard of it, and Boyle and I have never met. Hello? Do I hear the theme from Twilight Zone? I mean, what are the odds that two separate writers, strangers, a thousand miles apart, would each invent fictions in which guys take girls to an esoteric frog lecture on their first date. If that isn’t synchronicity, it’s something equally as weird.
Tony: In his book, Aquarius Revisited, Peter O. Whitmer characterized you as of the crew who created the sixties counterculture and changed America. What do you think the enduring legacy of the counterculture has been, or will be?
Tom: Although I participated enthusiastically in the sixties psychedelic revolution, and tried to mimic it — its trappings, its mythology, its silliness, its profundity — in print in my first novel, I had nothing to do with its creation. Rather, it was the confluence of two disparate elements — acute socio-political dissatisfaction and pharmacological neo-shamanism — that precipitated it; and it was democracy, as much as ferocious opposition from both the right-wing and left-wing establishments, that caused it to eventually unravel.
Democracy? Yep, oddly enough. The counterculture light was so bright it began to attract moths (people who sadly were not intellectually or spiritually prepared to meaningfully assimilate transformative multi-dimensional data streams from hyperspace) and stinging stink bugs (the thugs that invariably invade every utopia) in such great numbers that they eventually crowded out the butterflies (the educated middle class truth-seekers who switched on the light in the first place). That’s an oversimplification, of course, but it’s good to bear in mind that like it or not, enlightenment has always been, even in a golden age, pretty much limited to an elite. In America, the relatively finite psychedelic culture was shoved aside by the burgeoning boogie culture, whose drugs of choice were booze, speed, and cocaine; and whose goal was not to attain spiritual bliss, deeper understanding, or an end to war and repression but rather to get thoroughly fucked up.
Except in the not insignificant societal areas of civil rights, feminism, and medical marijuana, the legacy of the sixties counterculture has been largely recreational, ornamental, and subject to ridicule, though it would be unconscionable, even stupid, to dismiss or undervalue a catalog of the greatest popular music in human history. On a spiritual, evolutionary level, the light has dimmed and gone underground, but still, something in me would like to think the sixties phenomenon was a dress rehearsal for a grander, wider leap in consciousness yet to come. However, since Seafood Kabob is likely to win the Belmont Stakes before a psychic jailbreak of that magnitude materializes, my strategy is to try to live as if that day were already here.
Tony: I think most people would like to have some sort of security, but too often discover that the sacrifices they are required to endure to have it are antithetical to anything resembling the adventurous lives your characters inhabit. Do you think security and adventure are necessarily separate paths?
Tom: In your first question, you mentioned Alan Watts. Well, Watts published a luminous book entitled The Wisdom of Insecurity that ought to be required reading for every high school senior. Watts elaborates beautifully on what I’ve learned from observation and personal experience: namely, that security is an illusion. So, can pursuit of a mirage constitute an adventure? Maybe, but only if there’s genuine risk involved. Danger is to adventure what garlic is to spaghetti sauce. Without it, you just end up with stewed tomatoes.
Admittedly, having a bit of disposable cash in the bank can give you a sense of Buddhistic calm, and despite the fallacy involved, that’s probably preferable to the bonafide adventure of robbing a bank. A better alternative, however, is to learn to be at peace even when common sense (a highly overrated virtue) would lead you to believe that someone in your situation ought to feel threatened and insecure.
Tony: Finally, as someone who has written nine novels, you are uniquely qualified to answer the following question: Is the truth stranger than fiction?
Tom: I’ve become increasingly unwilling to make those distinctions. Just because something didn’t happen doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
