The Power of Imagination

by Owen K Waters

In the dream state, you create any reality that you desire. In a dream, you can be with anyone you imagine and in any surroundings that you choose. In a dream, you might be walking through the local scenery, then suddenly switch to driving in a car and, finally, be flying through the air to get somewhere more quickly. The background scenery can change from one scene to another in a split-second.

When you awake, you may dismiss the dream as an imaginary, fast-changing jumble of pure fantasy. After all, when you come back into the cold, solid light of the physical world, the dream world seems so unreal. But is it? Are all dreams just your imagination running wild, or are those scenic backdrops really created around you within the very fabric of the dream world?

What about those times when you awake from a dream that seemed so real, you find it hard to believe that it wasn’t real. And yet, you’ve been taught to believe that dreams are never real, so then you struggle between that in-built belief and the fact that you’ve just had a very real dream experience.

For example, in a dream, was that really your favorite granddad visiting you, or did you just make it all up? And, why did he look so much younger than when he was alive?

Now, here is the surprising secret. Dreams are real. Very real.

When you are dreaming, you are out of your physical body and functioning in your spirit body in the spirit world.

The fabric of the dream world, or spirit world, is called etheric energy. Mystics call it the ‘astral light’ but, technically speaking, its correct name is ethero-magnetic energy. The substances of the physical world, on the other hand, are composed of electro-magnetic energy. Your spirit body is composed of etheric energy and so is the world that surrounds you when you are in the spirit or astral world.

Etheric energy responds instantly to your thought commands. If you want to change your appearance – shape shift – then just think it, and it will be so. If you want to change your surroundings, just imagine a new set of surroundings and they will appear. At least, to your perception, they will, and to anyone in your close proximity.

Those surroundings are created for you temporarily, as a backdrop, by the power of your imagination. The real surroundings of that location are independent of your imaginative creations, which survive only for as long as you pay attention to them. In the spirit world, these mental creations are called thought forms. The more powerful your ability to mentally focus, the larger and more vivid you can make your thought forms. Within the spirit world, they are solid to the touch, as are the bodies of other spirits.

This demonstrates that, in the spirit world, your imagination is very real as it creates new realities instantly. In the physical world, your imagination creates realities over time. In fact, new realities physically manifest only after you have applied the necessary action in order to organize them in the physical world.

Physical realities don’t just manifest out of thin air like they do in the spirit world. You have to intend them, energize them with your feelings, and then walk them through the steps that will enable them to become physically manifest using existing materials.

The common key between the dream world and the physical world is that imagination creates realities. In the spirit world, they manifest instantly and in accordance with the degree of your mental focus. In the physical world they manifest slowly, also in proportion to the effort that you invest in making them happen.

Never let it be said that, “It’s only your imagination.” In the saga of life, your imagination is everything.

Imagination is your creative faculty.

With it, you have, quite simply, the power to change the world.

The Nature of Your Soul

by Owen K Waters

Your soul is your immortal inner being. It existed before time began and it will always exist, even when you eventually merge back into your ultimate spiritual home as a conscious aspect of Infinite Being – the Divine Source of all life.

There are twelve levels of existence, ranging from the mundane – for example, the consciousness of a rock – up to the levels of the three aspects of the Creator. During our cycles of reincarnation, we use the third, fourth, and fifth of these twelve levels.

The physical realm is in the third density level. The soul is in fifth density, and Infinite Being is beyond the twelfth. Your soul is your individualized spiritual presence, operating in fifth density and it maintains communication with the souls of everyone with whom you interact in daily life.

The soul world of fifth density (or “the fifth dimension” as it may also be called) is non-physical. Our dense physical world is in third density, while fourth density – the afterlife or spirit world – is quasi-physical. The term quasi-physical means that the spirit world is solid to its residents, even though they are etheric or ghost-like when compared to our dense physical structures. Spirits can, and do, bump into each other in the spirit realms because they are solid relative to each other.

Life in the spirit world is much like life in our dense physical world, except that there are certain freedoms that come with having a less dense body. The ability to levitate is one such freedom and, better still, spirits can project themselves almost instantly to another location and suddenly appear there. It just takes mental focus and they suddenly appear at the target location.

Fifth density is the start of non-physical existence, so your soul exists as a non-physical sphere of consciousness. Some traditions refer to the soul as the “mental body” and the soul realms as the “mental realms,” although they are referring to higher mental functions rather than basic, mathematical-type intellect.

Your soul has the freedom to relocate both in time and space but it spends most of its time catering to the needs of its physical, incarnate self. Your soul is the recorder and cataloger of all of your experiences as you add your contribution to the vast array of human experience on earth.

A major portion of your soul consciousness lives right here in third density with you, tending to your every spiritual need. As your inner self, your soul knows you better than anyone else in the world does, and it’s available for consultation instantly at any time. The limiting factor is how much your physical mind will allow and accept these intuitive, soul-originated thoughts.

Make a decision to live a life more inspired by intuitive, inner wisdom, and open up your awareness more to the whisperings of your intuitive nature. Practice following your innermost hunches. Make a note of them so that you can look back later and see how accurate they become.

Most of all, don’t be deterred if your hunches seem inaccurate during any early attempts. It happens that way to most people. If you are new to intuitive listening, just keep practicing and very soon your hunches will start turning into a resource so valuable that you’ll wonder what you did without it.

Whatever you want to achieve in life – an abundance of spiritual growth, greater friendships, financial support, or better health – you can use the capabilities of your soul-based consciousness to empower you and reach that goal of achievement.

Jesus’ Secret Mission

by Owen K Waters

As people’s consciousness rises, it becomes more difficult for the church to convince people that they should be filled with guilt. For centuries, the church has used guilt to gain control over people and actually, in times of lower consciousness, that was probably for the best.

Let’s face it, if the average medieval villager would use the slightest excuse to start looting and plundering, they really did need someone to maintain order with an iron hand. It was even worse in the time of Jesus. If a wandering tribe wandered into the wrong place, the locals would attack and try to slaughter them. Brotherly love was not the fashion in those days.

Jesus stepped into that less-than-friendly era to inspire an upgrade in consciousness from a society where order was maintained by force to one based on heart-centered kindness. Two thousand years later, we may not be there yet, but enormous progress has been made. And, here we are, passing through this critical era of The Shift to higher consciousness.

The evolution of intelligence in the universe is planned and protected by the Creator. Within the universe, the third aspect of the Creative Trinity takes the form of what might be called Lords of Karma. These are massive fields of consciousness, greater in size even than galaxies. They knew that we would have the opportunity to go through The Shift to higher consciousness today, and they also saw a huge barrier standing in our way.

At the time of Jesus, the predator-like misbehavior of humanity was building karmic pressure for another major setback, a global disaster similar in scale to the Biblical flood which had occurred thousands of years before.

The church teaches that Jesus intervened and died for the sins of humanity, but they don’t teach the metaphysical knowledge of how that was done. Here it is.

There is an ancient yogic initiation available to advanced spiritual masters. It involves a technique which may be no great secret, but it wouldn’t be of much use in the hands of the average ordinary human anyway. Here’s why.

If you read about the Hawkins scale of consciousness in my book, The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness, you will recall that everyone contributes to the condition of the global mind atmosphere. A very high frequency of consciousness by one advanced person can compensate for the effect of millions of people of low-frequency, depressive states of consciousness. That’s because higher frequencies have proportionately greater effect than lower frequencies.

This advanced yogic technique uses the same principle, but in a much more powerful way. With it, the master can take the karmic burden of others upon themselves. Jesus died a horrible death while deliberately siphoning off the destructive karma of humanity, saving civilization from being set back thousands of years.

He knew that this was his mission and he knew the terrible suffering he would have to endure. He played a politically inflaming role knowing that it would lead to conditions where his sacrifice became a reality.

Yes, he suffered to save humanity from its sins but is it fair to berate church congregations with such a guilt-inducing message? Not any more.

The Church that rose upon the teachings of Jesus is decades behind schedule in upgrading their message to fit today’s new consciousness. It is no longer appropriate to put down kind-hearted people that could be in their congregations – the very people who are the hope of the world. A guilt-filled lack of self worth is so very yesterday. Today, people need to raise their hearts and minds to inspire the global mind atmosphere.

We have the power to transform the entire planet with our love and light.

Let us always remember that we are here today, living in comparative ease and freedom, able to make The Shift to higher consciousness thanks to the enormous sacrifice made by Jesus two thousand years ago.


Christian mysticism is a wonderful way to help Christians move forward with spiritually self-empowering information. If only there had been such material easily available in my youth.

As a child, Sunday mornings would see my mother playing the church organ and me as a choirboy stuck in the choir stalls. Apparently, it was easier to keep an eye on me there.

The vicar used to routinely accuse the congregation of being miserable sinners, but I can’t say I listened much. As a soon-to-be mystic, my thoughts tended to be elsewhere.

Now, if the vicar had been a Christian mystic, his sermons would have been worth listening to. But, what can you expect. That was the early 1960s and the church was still peddling the guilt-and-control agenda that had worked so well for many centuries.

Today, for those interested in Christian mysticism, fascinating material can be just a mouse-click away.

One of today’s leading Christian mystics, Brian Longhurst, had just released a new book called, Entering the Kingdom Within.

This insightful work radiates the love of Jesus from its wonderfully-written pages and brings a long-awaited breath of life to true Christianity.

The Truth About Karma

by Owen K Waters

Karma is very different from what most people think it is. The word itself, usually prefixed by the word “bad,” generates ideas of retribution or punishment for past misadventures. Somewhere in the heavens above, so people imagine, an accountant is supposed to be keeping track of your karmic balance.

I used to assume that karma was all about maintaining a balance, so therefore the universe contained some law that made it reflective in nature and therefore automatically self-balancing. However, I stand corrected by recent revelations from my senior guide and mentor, an archangel who serves humanity in the vitally essential office of Lord Protector of The Shift.

Karma is an effect of creation. There is no inherent reflective capability in the universe. The apparent reflections, which people sometimes call their karma, come from the ongoing patterns of consciousness which they have created.

Each of us has a karmic pattern, which is like a tapestry filled with a variety of cross-linked energies. Each thread woven into your karmic pattern was placed there by your creation of a certain pattern of consciousness.

Each created pattern of consciousness within the tapestry of your karmic pattern exists because you have given it life. It will continue to exist and attract circumstances to itself as long as you feed its existence. That attraction is caused by the emotional component of the creation.

The Law of Creation is invoked when intention and feeling are set into motion.

The feeling part of the thought pattern creates a field of attraction which, by its nature, attracts relevant circumstances to itself.

How to Change Your Karma

People often ask if their karmic pattern can be changed. Yes, it can. It changes all the time. What has been created and empowered by an emotional charge will soon fade away when that emotional charge no longer feeds it.

In a more sudden fashion, a rise in consciousness can transform a karmic pattern. For example, if someone were intent on jealousy as a way of life and then they experienced a sudden awakening which transformed them to a higher level of thought, their life could change at that very moment.

They could decide to become loving and forgiving instead of continuing to feed the old jealousy pattern. That decision would be the end of the jealousy part of their karmic pattern. It would be taken out of existence by the transformation which made the person no longer interested in feeding that pattern of consciousness. The former creation would dissipate, its energy being released back to the universe, and it would stop generating karmic circumstances.

In Summary

The Law of Karma states that thought patterns attract experiences to you which match the patterns. Your overall karmic pattern is a collection of each thought pattern you have created. It can change as you raise your level of consciousness through spiritual growth but the Law of Karma never ceases to operate. It is built into Creation and is always in full operation at all levels of Creation, attracting those patterns you have created through your intentions, feelings and actions.

Here’s the Especially Good News

The Law of Karma guarantees that when you give, you will receive. When you heal, you will receive healing. When you teach what you have learned to others, you will find that even greater insights dawn within you as a result.

If you decide with all your heart that this is the year you will succeed in fulfilling your soul purpose in this life, then that adds a thread to your karmic pattern which will affect your present and future. Like a magnet drawing resources and circumstances toward you, this thread will help you navigate through life in a way which can fulfill your wish in every possible way.

Science’s Biggest Blunder

by Owen K Waters

The Scientific Revolution emerged at a time when religion maintained an oppressive grasp over the minds of the day. Great minds like Isaac Newton lived in fear that his discoveries in scientific philosophy would bring down the weight of an inquisition upon his head.

Perhaps he had good reason to worry. His laws of mechanics helped promote the idea that the universe may simply be a gigantic machine. In that case, it became possible to see a machine-like universe running itself without the need for the God of religion to be running things.

Materialists loved the idea. A God in heaven was no longer needed to run the universe. Freed from the oppressing idea that a judgmental God is watching your every move, they felt liberated, almost like wild, rebellious schoolchildren who suddenly find they “don’t need Teachur no more!”

Such a reaction is understandable. After all, they had lived under an image of God as a stern old man with a personality more dour than their local bishop.

The theory of the universe as a self-running machine seemed fine for inanimate objects, but it had problems when applied to living things, especially human beings.

After all, there was that unpredictable attribute of humans called free will. How automated can that be? I have yet to witness a machine have a mood swing and exercise its free will to go off in a huff.

There are people today who think that, because computers can add two and two together really quickly, they will soon be able to do everything better than humans. Yeah… right!

How about imagination? Can a computer imagine its own possibilities?

Can it Feel the Fear and do it anyway?

How about creativity? What can a computer create that is better than anything that has ever been done before. The last time I looked, programming is based on the past. It can’t create anything new, as in clever and original.

How about curiosity? Where does that come into the picture of God Not In The Machine? Does a computer yearn to discover why it was created and what its true mission in life may be? I think not.

This, then, is science’s biggest blunder. In a juvenile quest to eliminate anything bigger or better than their fragile egos, some people ignore the obvious question.

“If the universe is a giant machine, then who is its designer and creator?”

Machines do not build themselves.

Science will progress by studying the brilliant work of the Grand Engineer, not by ignoring it.
