Back to Dimension Zero - Calming the Inner-Creature

Image
I didn't write a book about meditation because I was perfect at it. In fact most of the material I had been writing wasn't about meditation at all but memoir. However, the memoir material was still too emotionally charged for me to face in a rational way. My nervous system, ravaged by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), was still wired to react to the slightest aggravation.

So as I learned how to rebuild my nervous system from the ground up - using what I knew about human consciousness - the material to structure my first book, The Love of the Universe, emerged. After I finished writing it I realised that I hadn't included enough practical exercises to generate the shifts in consciousness that I was enjoying myself. Somehow I needed to create a more practical, user-friendly version.

Fortunately I had written several guided meditations specifically designed to do the job, enough material to create a second book: Multidimensional Meditation. My intent was to show how easy…

30 Days of Less Than Consistent Writing Finished My Book!

Image
November was the month for an event known among writers as NaNoWriMo, which means National Novel Writing Month. Participants sign up and make a pledge to complete writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Although it's named 'National,' it has become an international competition.

Since first noticing the event on Social Media, I had watched it go by me for several rounds. But this year the planets aligned and something different happened. After writing the first 40,000 words of a new manuscript I came to a slow spot. It wasn't writers' block because the rest of the material for the book was sitting right at the edges of my brain just waiting to be written down. I had just lost motivation. So I definitely hadn't consciously planned on participating in NaNoWriMo. I didn't even know how.

The repetition of a ritual for a set period of time is something I usually do when I'm making majick. Repetition of an activity reinforces neural pathways that once strengthened, b…

7 Small Ways to Reduce Plastic Waste - While We Await The Plastic Eating Bugs!

Image
Hope prevails in the world of plastic recycling, with research being undertaken into plastic eating bacteria. It has been found that these bacteria settle on plastic, using it as an energy source. Their chemical activities have been found to speed up the rate of degradation in plastic materials.

The bacteria was first discovered in 2016 at a Japanese rubbish tip. It was found that the bacteria secreted an enzyme that acted to break down plastic. Scientists then tinkered with the enzyme to make it even more efficient. It now only takes a few days to start breaking down plastic, but researchers are confident the process can be sped up even further.

It is hoped the enzyme can be used to break plastic down to its original components. From there the components can be used to re-create plastic goods that are essentially new, without the need for oil. It means the recycled plastic won't degrade in quality the way it does with current recycling methods.

But with 1 million plastic bottles …

Going Deep: Explore Seven Planes of Your Inner Life

Image
Doing nothing can get stuff done!

Although it's evening and I'm tired, and have already written a piece of content, I decided to tap into my creative space and see if anything came up. I pondered the creative space itself and how it's achieved. The result is this piece about developing an inner life.

Because I like to frame things in terms of multidimensional consciousness, in this article I have mapped out a step-by-step process to help you move progressively through different dimensions of consciousness. It's basically a mindfulness exercise, but it's also the process I use to tap into my own creativity. Whether I'm tapping into the plane of words, pictures or symbols, there's a preliminary process - a turning away from ordinary consciousness - toward the inner life.

Our hectic paced lives can make it harder than ever to maintain an inner life. Bright lights and continual stimulation lengthen the amount of time we spend in the active phases of personal en…

Meditation: Heart Light - Dimension Four of Human Consciousness

Image
The Heart Centre Open your heart centre with the fifth video in the Dimensions series of mediations. You are a multidimensional being spanning earthly and spiritual dimensions. This meditation represents the bridge that connects the mindful realms of meditation to the spiritual realms. It's also a beautiful, gentle tool for personal and planetary healing. You can use it on yourself, your pets and other loved ones, and even the planet.

The following book excerpt from, Multidimensional Meditation, describes a little of what is meant by Dimension Four.

It is often said that love begins with the self. At Dimension Four, our personal energy intermingles with the energies of others, connecting us all. The energy at this level flows inward and outward like our breath.  Energy is balanced at the heart. Meditation at this level connects us to empathy. With empathy it becomes easier to imagine ourselves in another’s place and be more sensitive to their needs. But we can only give to others w…

Meditation: Feet & Breathe - Dimension Three of Human Consciousness

Image
The Mental Body Today I'm sharing the fourth video in the Dimensions series of meditations. This is one of the most useful meditations you will ever learn. It generates mindfulness, that sense of presence and inhabitation of yourself in space and time. The Feet & Breathe meditation helps you to clear your mind and calm your emotions, allowing you to focus your human energy in more creative and useful ways.

The following excerpt from my book, Multidimensional Meditation, explores how Dimension Three of human consciousness represents our mental body and our training.

The mental body can be trained to help us handle stress. It is where we remember things, like multiplication tables and relaxation techniques. When we learn or remember something, we are holding a memory or thought form in our mental body. Meditation at Dimension Three begins when we can first surrender ourselves to the moment. By ‘moment’ I mean the current moment – not the next moment. Mindfulness of each moment, e…
