1. Evolving Consciousness
Here we are. We are thinking. We are aware of our existence, our senses, we are aware of something within and of something external. We comprehend, we understand, we know.
What and how do we know?
We know things related to the above, or we know things because we have inherited some of the knowing with our genes. Our ancestors learned things that we don’t have to learn. We already know these things because of what we call Evolution.
As we keep evolving our knowledge grows. And – as we keep evolving – we find more and more ways of experiencing ourselves.
It used to be that human Evolution was thought of as a means to populate the planet and ensure that, as the human race, we survive.
Now Evolution more and more is referred to as the expansion of consciousness. A way to experience ourselves on different, more advanced levels than merely through our five senses.
And it isn’t a new concept at all. Through centuries there were individuals, or sometimes even entire societies, whose primary focus was on such progress.
Those individuals (or societies) were often described as being “ahead of their times” or “highly evolved”. To this day, researchers and archaeologists keep finding artifacts, structures, tools or written messages, which speak of highly developed minds that created them.
Whether we are aware of it or not, we continue to evolve – for the purpose of the ongoing expansion of what we truly are: consciousness.
And the way we evolve is through our experience. Whatever we experience, contributes to what we know about ourselves.
When we are not aware of our development through experience, we are often overwhelmed by the unexpected changes in our life, facing challenges we don’t understand, attracting numerous obstacles and problems. We often feel we lack happiness – which manifests as stress, deteriorating health, addiction, loneliness (whether we are in a relationship or not), anxiety, and lack of purpose, dissatisfaction with our lives, dissatisfaction with ourselves and/or others.
When we are aware of our development, and in tune with our internal evolution, our life becomes an incredible adventure filled with True Power, Success, Happiness, Abundance, Health and Freedom from any limitations.
Our life can be the best thing that has ever happened to us. Our life can be beautiful.
Just think about it. No, I mean – really think about it…
What is it that you want the most?
Beautiful Life. Happy Life. That’s what you want. The details may differ from person to person. Some of us want peace and joy. Some want health, money, or fame, or power, or success, or someone to love us. But all of that is just what we believe would make our life beautiful.
We are not really after the details. What we truly want is to be happy with our life. Or – more precisely – what we want is to be happy.
Have you ever felt that your life was going nowhere? Have you ever felt limited and disappointed with what was available to you and didn’t know how to break free from that feeling and the circumstances?
If your answer is “yes”, you are not alone.
Many people have never felt truly alive. And, to many, life is either hard or disappointing, or “running on automatic pilot”.
Because our minds tend to work in a particular way: we think in a way we are used to. That is actually not so bad, when it comes to remembering or analyzing things where that type of logic is required. However, when we want to expand our consciousness, and live the life we want, instead of living the one we don’t want – we need to train our mind to be able to use our logic beyond our sensory perception, and free our subconsciousness of the old negative programming.
Yes, it can be done. If others could do it, we can do it too. As the consciousness that we are, we keep evolving.
As the Evolving Consciousness, we have no limits other than those we impose on ourselves. And deep inside, we all know that.
2. Individual Consciousness & One Consciousness
Not long ago, the medical field used to describe consciousness as being related to our senses. There is even an existing term we use when someone faints. We say then that the person is unconscious.
There is a distinction between the consciousness of our senses, and the consciousness that we are – beyond our senses, not limited to our body, and with the potential to exist forever.
Since science has been preoccupied with the idea of infinity for at least the last century – you can find numerous scientific articles and books on topics of intelligence existing prior to matter, various theories about the structure of the universe, parallel universes, space and time, consciousness, and what happens after death.
However, the idea of infinity existed in the human mind even before modern science began to research the origins of the universe and consciousness.
While science talks about everything being a part of one huge Energy field, many belief systems talk about God being all there is, and containing everything within.
No matter whether it is science or a belief system that resonates the most with our own inner truth, some things remain the same:
We are all part of One Whole. And we are all connected.
Each of us, being a “Spark” of the One Whole (one consciousness), experiences oneself as an individual – but at the same time is able to tune into the wisdom of the One Whole.
Being a part of the One Whole, we can have access to our collective wisdom, as well as to the experiences of every single “Spark”.
On the level of consciousness beyond the senses, we have access to every single bit of information that exists.
Whether that information originated in what we perceive as past, present or future – does not matter.
In the field of the One Whole, time does not bind us, because on that level all is timeless.
Can we really be infinite? And if so – what does it mean to us, and how would the awareness of it affect our lives?
Would we still have the same priorities? How would we live, knowing that our material world is an Illusion created by our Evolving Consciousness and that it doesn’t really exist? Would we still enjoy our life?
I’d say: why not? Illusion or not, our life is worth enjoying, no matter what. After all, we know ourselves through the experiences of our life.
Our life is precious. And we need to fully understand its value if we want to fully enjoy it.
From all the infinite possibilities of how you can experience yourself as the consciousness that you are – you chose to be here and now, in this life. In this finite moment.
Life experience is the knowledge of our Mind.
Life wisdom is the knowledge of our Heart.
We can acquire our life experience over time.
But to gain our life wisdom, we have to tune into our timeless Heart.
* In the Master Teachings of HOPE, we use the word “Heart” to describe the core of our essence, our “pure inner person”. The part of us where we hold our own, beautiful truth, free of any conditioning and fears.
3. Knowing Through Experiencing Beyond Senses
In order to help you to expand your mind’s capacity, I’d like you to try the following Inner Journey. It is designed to have a different effect on your mind than some audio recordings (such as guided meditations), which are usually used for such purposes.
You will be asked to keep switching back and forth between reading (sensory perception) and internal experiencing (spiritual perception). It is an excellent way to prompt your brain to start using its otherwise “asleep” parts, sharpen your intuition and induce your so-called “third eye” vision.
The following Inner Journey is meant to help you to adjust to a new way of perceiving, and exploring the possibility of experiencing your existence on another level.
Inner Journey: Experiencing Beyond Senses
Exploring Your “Third Eye”:
Find a comfortable position so that your body can feel fully relaxed with no strain on any of its parts.
Now take a few deep breaths, before you go on.
Take as long as you wish, or need, to read the following. Remember, there is no rush. You’ll get where you are meant to get, in the most appropriate time for you.
Experiencing is not about rushing things. Experiencing is about experiencing.
Keep breathing slowly, and peacefully.
In a moment I will ask you to close your eyes, and open them again to continue to read, after you imagine the following:
You are at the bottom of your “third eye”. For those who are not sure what the “third eye” is: concentrate on the point between and slightly above your eyebrows. There is an energy center there, and we call it the “third eye”.
Imagine that in some unexplained, safe and pleasant way you are at the bottom of your own “third eye”. Let’s not think about whether it is possible or not. It’s not the point. Just trust your own process and imagine that.
NOTE: If you are by any chance a person who cannot easily picture images in your mind – try to feel what’s happening instead of trying to imagine it.
Open your eyes to come back to reading after you have completed the task.
Close your eyes NOW.
Good. You have opened your eyes. Keep breathing slowly, and deeply. Here is what to do next.
In a moment you will close your eyes to imagine the following, and after that, you will open your eyes to read further.
A: Imagine that you are still at the bottom of your “third eye”, and that colorful clouds of energy surround you, constantly moving and swirling.
B: With your eyes closed, you turn your eyeballs to the left, as far as you can (do it really).
C: Imagine that you see a tunnel there, on the left. Step forward with no hesitation, and walk inside the tunnel. Its walls are made of dark blue energy, looking like swirling dark blue clouds.
D: Keep walking forward until you see the end of the tunnel. Don’t leave the tunnel yet. Stop here, and open your eyes to continue reading.
If you want to read the above again, to better remember how to do this step – do it, as many times as you wish. There is no rush.
You are not being judged for how well or how fast you do the steps.
When you are ready: close your eyes NOW.
Good. You have opened your eyes.
If it worked for you this far, you may continue with this Inner Journey. If it didn’t – try it again later. Stop reading this article and come back to it later today or tomorrow, or when you feel you are ready to try to do it again.
It is important that you practice experiencing and trying new ways of perceiving, instead of acquiring the knowledge only via your mind.
Take your time. Take as much time as you want.
You are progressing at your own speed. That speed is appropriate for you.
Keep breathing slowly, and peacefully. Remember to remain in a comfortable position.
If you are ready to do so, you will close your eyes again to imagine the following:
A: You are leaving the blue tunnel. It is a very pleasant feeling, as if you had been caressed with love.
B: Next imagine yourself outside the tunnel.
C: Imagine that you have just arrived at a very far “corner” of the Universe, and all around you there are colorful and shapeless clouds of energy.
When you are ready: close your eyes NOW.
Good. You have opened your eyes. Let us continue.
Keep breathing, slowly and deeply.
Stay comfortable. All is well.
A: Close your eyes and imagine that you will now develop a special vision, allowing you to see past the colorful clouds and see many places at once.
B: Turn your eyeballs to the left and, and with your left index finger touch the place just above your eyebrows, where your “third eye” is located in your forehead (do it really).
C: Imagine that this gesture caused a little spark in your heart. Then put down your arm.
D: Imagine that the little spark makes things around you brighter, and enables you to see what you couldn’t see before.
When you are ready: Close your eyes NOW.
Good. You have opened your eyes.
You have completed all the steps
The Inner Journey which you have just completed comes from Johanna Kern’s book “Master Teachings of HOPE” – Volume 1, – which contains, among other things, over a dozen Inner Journeys, never published before.
In her book “Master Teachings of HOPE” – Volume 1, Johanna Kern guides you through a specific program designed to expand your vision of yourself, sharpen your intuition and awake some of the dormant areas of your brain.
“In response to many requests, I decided that it is time to reveal more advanced levels of the ancient Master Teachings of HOPE, which explain everything from our origins and purpose, to how we can progress to explore the endless possibilities of the Wheel of Creation.
The Master Teachings of HOPE are meant to expand your consciousness and help you evolve to your full potential. They are not meant to change who you are, or change your belief system – no matter whether you come from a scientific, atheist or any religious background.
In this volume, you will find tools to help you to expand your vision of yourself, sharpen your intuition, and induce or improve your “third eye” vision – which further leads to awakening some of the dormant areas of your brain.
You will learn how to use your thoughts to affect the reality you live in, and you will learn how to use the gifts of the 7 Powers to achieve your highest potential.
There are no limits to who you can become – as there are no limits to your magnificence.
With my love I am passing into your hands the 1st volume in the series of the advanced Master Teachings of HOPE.” – Johanna Kern
The Power of your Mind has no limits, other than those you have imposed on yourself.
