Soul Traveler

You are a Soul Traveler

Your soul com­plex, also known as the Lux Ani­mae, can do many things. This includes the abil­i­ty to trans­port your unique light ener­gy from one loca­tion of con­scious­ness to anoth­er – or soul trav­el. Before we become awak­ened, these things hap­pen behind the scenes of con­scious aware­ness. With teach­ing, the stu­dent awak­ens and learns to rec­og­nize the com­mu­ni­ca­tions sent to us by the mas­ters and guardians and their invi­ta­tions for us to vis­it with them. With a lit­tle help, we can learn how to inten­tion­al­ly trav­el to extra-dimen­sion­al loca­tions. We do this for fun, spir­i­tu­al growth, and because we are spir­i­tu­al­ly adven­tur­ous.

Introduction

[dropcap]A[/dropcap] lot hap­pens behind the scenes of your con­scious life. Whether you real­ize it or not, the real you is a soul trav­el­er. Right now, even though your con­scious aware­ness is read­ing this les­son, anoth­er part of you that lives extra-dimen­sion­al­ly is doing oth­er things at that loca­tion – includ­ing soul trav­el!  Soul trav­el is the most nat­ur­al thing in the world, and it hap­pens so eas­i­ly and nat­u­ral­ly that many have nev­er stopped to real­ize what is hap­pen­ing. The fact that your soul has elect­ed to wear a bio­log­i­cal device (your body) is because of its desire to soul trav­el in this dimen­sion. It also trav­els to many oth­er places.

Soul Traveling

The term soul trav­el­ing is some­what of a mis­nomer in that trav­el implies that we move from one place to anoth­er – such as walk­ing, dri­ving, fly­ing and the like. The trav­el we speak of is not the trav­el of a car but more like a shift in our con­scious­ness aware­ness from one place to anoth­er. It is very sim­i­lar to the way humans pay atten­tion in real life.  Let’s say that a friend comes up and starts speak­ing to you – and then anoth­er per­son you know does the same. You will have to decide which per­son to lis­ten to – or orga­nize your friends so that you can vis­it with them both.  In the same way, soul trav­el­ing is the skill of plac­ing our atten­tion extra-dimen­sion­al­ly. This is an acquired and sub­tle skill.

Anoth­er thing we remind you of is that every­thing that we expe­ri­ence hap­pens with­in. The so-called exter­nal world that we per­ceive as hap­pen­ing out­side of our bod­ies is noth­ing more than Soul Con­scious­ness observ­ing ITs self. This small and tech­ni­cal point has great impor­tance to us. The world we expe­ri­ence every day is of our cre­ation. By choos­ing present moment aware­ness, we can choose what uni­verse we want to expe­ri­ence. This is a con­scious soul trav­el. By focused aware­ness, we can raise our vibra­to­ry state by choos­ing to expe­ri­ence some­thing from a high­er lev­el of con­scious­ness than those about us.

In our 3-D world, we devel­op increased aware­ness by devel­op­ing skills at non­ver­bal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, notic­ing small things, pay­ing atten­tion to envi­ron­men­tal clues and increas­ing our knowl­edge about peo­ple, places, and things. The more we learn, the greater the prob­a­bil­i­ty that we will have a greater under­stand­ing of process­es that go on behind the scenes. The more we learn about art, the more sig­nif­i­cant our under­stand­ing as we look at paint­ings. The more we under­stand about lit­er­a­ture, the more mean­ing we draw as we read a book or watch a play or movie. The same is true about soul trav­el­ing. There is much to learn about it. The more we learn through our meta­phys­i­cal stud­ies – the more skill we gain in rec­og­niz­ing the many faces of Source. Source con­scious­ness is infi­nite and has sent ITs aware­ness into count­less forms of vibra­to­ry states. There­fore, there are infi­nite places we may vis­it in our Lux Ani­mae with help from the Spir­i­tus Lumine.

Our Unique Frequency

When Source first cre­at­ed our Soul, by plac­ing a part if ITs infi­nite self into a new­ly cre­at­ed Lux Ani­mae (soul com­plex), it assigned it a unique iden­ti­fy­ing fre­quen­cy – or vibra­to­ry state. The Lux Ani­mae was per­mit­ted to trav­el with­in a lim­it­ed range of fre­quen­cies until it had earned the right to trav­el fur­ther. In the begin­ning, our abil­i­ties were lim­it­ed to a band that is more or less reserved for new­ly cre­at­ed souls.  As we gained more expe­ri­ence and skill through our var­i­ous life­times, our range of trav­el increased and our Lux Ani­mae could explore addi­tion­al fre­quen­cies. It is like a new­ly licensed dri­ver whose par­ents restrict the where­abouts of the new dri­ver until they gain more skill. Think of the par­ents as ascend­ed mas­ters. As dri­ver and par­ents spend more time with each oth­er, the new dri­ver gains addi­tion­al priv­i­leges. So it is with the Lux Ani­mae. Life­time after life­time has giv­en it more expe­ri­ences and under­stand­ing. As we have grown, the ascend­ed mas­ters have increased our vibra­to­ry range of places we may trav­el in our Lux Ani­mae. If you are read­ing this les­son, you now have a remark­able range of per­mis­sions avail­able for trav­el – and you can gain more as you learn more about the ascend­ed mas­ters and inte­grate their teach­ings into your life. The Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine has appeared in your life once again to help you orga­nize the many things you have learned in count­less life­times of study and liv­ing so that in this life­time you might great­ly accel­er­ate your growth and ascend to a com­plete­ly new dimen­sion of trav­el and expe­ri­ence.

Intentional Soul Travel

The Lux Ani­mae is direct­ly con­nect­ed to the phys­i­cal body in one direc­tion and the Spir­i­tus Lumine in anoth­er direc­tion. This divine con­nec­tion allows mes­sages to be sent back and forth via the soul com­plex.  As we have said in oth­er lessons, the Spir­i­tus Lumine is the soul’s (Lux Ani­mae) divine con­nec­tion to Source. In many ways, the Spir­i­tus Lumine is like a spir­i­tu­al inter­net that your guardians, or your high­er self, may use to speak, work, or encour­age you. As stat­ed in the intro­duc­tion, we are con­stant­ly trav­el­ing in the Lux Ani­mae. Until we obtain the hid­den knowl­edge – our trav­els will be lim­it­ed to the dream state and times when we are unaware.  Actu­al­ly, soul trav­el expe­ri­ences are hid­den in plain sight. As we gain the knowl­edge we need, we first learn to rec­og­nize it as it occurs in the dream state, then how to trav­el in med­i­ta­tive and awak­ened states. The key to all inten­tion­al trav­el is to first engage the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion.

The Spiritual Imagination

Every­thing has its begin­nings in the Divine Imag­i­na­tion. Noth­ing exists except it first were imag­ined by Source. Upon it’s imag­in­ing, Source decides whether or not to cre­ate Souls and Lux Animae’s to fur­ther explore its imag­in­ings. When it cre­ates them, each have a Unique Soul Pur­pose. This is the crav­ing that all humans expe­ri­ence as they seek to under­stand why they are here!  What we are try­ing to do is remem­ber – or per­haps dis­cov­er for the first time – the expe­ri­ences that Source had in mind as it cre­at­ed us. It is like a young per­son who dreams of becom­ing a singer or a doc­tor.  In their imag­in­ings, they pur­sue many paths – some suc­cess­ful and some less so – that lead them to accom­plish their dream.  So it is with Source. IT has imag­in­ings and it cre­at­ed Souls (you and me) by plac­ing part of its infi­nite con­scious­ness into Lux Ani­mae (Soul Com­plex­es) so that it might deeply explore its imag­in­ings (our soul pur­pose). These explo­rations are what we have been doing life after life. Just like in human lives, there is a learn­ing curve that all must expe­ri­ence.  We are born as infants. We must be edu­cat­ed, grow in social skills, cul­tur­al under­stand­ings and the like. We live, grow old, and die. And each life­time, if we are suc­cess­ful, we car­ry out more of our soul pur­pose.  If you are read­ing this les­son, you have gained a crit­i­cal mass in learn­ing more about the exact rea­son you were cre­at­ed.

As we gain more skill and soul trav­el at will, we use our own form of the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion to help us trav­el. In the begin­ning, the stu­dent always wants to know if their expe­ri­ences were real or imag­ined. They want to know if they were God or self-cre­at­ed. The short answer is that every­thing is a part of the Uni­ver­sal imag­i­na­tion – or Source con­scious­ness. There is no such thing as “our” imag­i­na­tion – it all belongs to Source. But to be more tech­ni­cal, some of Source’s imag­in­ings are more devel­oped than oth­ers.  This 3-D world we live in is a very well-devel­oped part of Source imag­i­na­tion. Oth­er places we may go are less devel­oped. (The long game for all Souls is to imag­ine a ful­ly cre­at­ed dimen­sion of its own – but we have much fur­ther to go before this hap­pens!) For now, one of the best ways of mak­ing progress is to fol­low a path such as The Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine, which car­ries stu­dents along the well-devel­oped worlds. Thus, our answer to stu­dents who ask if their expe­ri­ences were from Source or self is to inquire about how well-devel­oped the expe­ri­ence was.

Dream Traveling

Dream trav­el­ing is a pri­ma­ry form of soul trav­el. When you dream, day­dream, and prac­tice cre­ative visu­al­iza­tion, you acti­vate your Lux Ani­mae or soul com­plex, for extra-dimen­sion­al trav­el. You do this mul­ti­ple times each day and for lengths of peri­ods every night. Dur­ing these times your Lux Ani­mae trav­els to oth­er galax­ies and dimen­sions in time and space in the blink of an eye.  It can do this because, unlike phys­i­cal trav­el which requires mechan­i­cal devices, the Lux Ani­mae, trav­els via Source con­scious­ness to where it needs to go. In a very real sense, there are no galax­ies, dimen­sions, and uni­vers­es – only loca­tions of con­scious­ness with­in Source.  Dur­ing these times, you meet with oth­ers includ­ing mem­bers of your soul group, elder beings, peo­ple you have known on earth who are now depart­ed, ascend­ed mas­ters, ani­mals, and with work­ers of the cre­ative king­doms.

A lit­tle-known fact is that wak­ing up from a dream doesn’t mean that the dream has stopped. Anoth­er part of you remains engaged in the dream until it com­pletes. No doubt you have had expe­ri­ences where you awak­en from a dream only to re-engage the same dream once more as you fell back to sleep. The Lux Ani­mae may well con­tin­ue those dreams – even when our con­scious aware­ness moves to anoth­er place.  As we said, you are one busy trav­el­er.

This trav­el hap­pens with and with­out your con­scious per­mis­sion. Though your Lux Ani­mae works with your wak­ing state aware­ness, it does not need your con­scious per­mis­sion to do its work. Because your soul com­plex is the real you, it is a sov­er­eign enti­ty who can eas­i­ly send its earth­ly con­scious­ness into a deep sleep should it wish to car­ry out some task. Keep in mind, the real you is not the egoic aware­ness of the phys­i­cal struc­ture that wears an earth­ly name – but the Lux Ani­mae.

In most cas­es, the dream­er has lit­tle to no con­trol over their dream state activ­i­ties. Through, lucid dream­ing exer­cis­es, med­i­ta­tion and prac­tice of the inner and out­er forms, a stu­dent can learn to gain more con­trol of their con­scious aware­ness.  In time, it becomes pos­si­ble to remain in con­tin­u­ous aware­ness – even while the body sleeps.  But for now, here is a sim­ple for­mu­la for you to fol­low.

  1. Find a qui­et spot where you can be alone and take a few moments before bed­time to con­tem­plate your day.
  2. Take a moment to express grat­i­tude to your angels, spir­its, and guides for the help you have received through­out the day.
  3. Con­clude your grat­i­tude cov­er­sa­tions by ask­ing your angels, spir­its, and guides to con­tin­ue their watch over you in your dream state.  Invite them to vis­it with you per­son­al­ly, or to give you dreams that you will remem­ber.  Ask for help in awak­en­ing from any dreams of impor­tance that may occur which were sent by your high­er pow­ers.
  4. Repeat by mouthing the fol­low­ing phrase three times, “I will remem­ber each dream sent to me by my high­er pow­er.” Say it three times with full inten­tion that this will be so.
  5. Keep a small jour­nal by your bed­side.  When you awak­en, write down a few words or phras­es that you still remem­ber – and note the time if pos­si­ble.
  6. If you nat­u­ral­ly awak­en in the morn­ing, note the time.  Write down any fur­ther mem­o­ries from your last dream, and review any notes that you have on paper.
  7. See if you can describe each of your dreams to fur­ther set the dream in your wak­ing con­scious­ness.
  8. When you have time, notice the sym­bols in your dreams and see if you can remem­ber any emo­tions as well.  Sym­bols are used by our high­er pow­ers to com­mu­ni­cate with us. Sym­bols have both a lit­er­al and fig­u­ra­tive mean­ings.  Decide/decode the mean­ing of the dream sym­bols as well as the sto­ry that was pre­sent­ed in your dream – then decide what mes­sage of wis­dom was giv­en you by your high­er pow­ers.
  9. If you have dif­fi­cul­ty in inter­pret­ing your dream, just ask your guides to help you come to under­stand their mean­ings as the day pro­gress­es.  In time dream inter­pre­ta­tion becomes rou­tine and habit­u­al.

Contemplation

This form of soul trav­el begins with tak­ing a spe­cial­ized con­cept that the stu­dent wish­es to know more about – and invit­ing an ascend­ed mas­ter to come and join the stu­dent in her thoughts.  Let’s say you wish to know more about the Lux Ani­mae – the soul com­plex.  Here is a short for­mu­la for how you would go about doing this (keep in mind that much of what you need to know will be cov­ered in the ROY-G-BIV exer­cis­es).

  1. Be clear in your mind the rea­son for your con­tem­pla­tion.  It actu­al­ly helps if you write down on a piece of paper what it is that you wish to know. This is known as set­ting your inten­tion.  For instance, “I wish to learn all that my spir­its and guides will show me about the Lux Ani­mae.  I want to know what is inside of my spir­i­tu­al com­plex.”
  2. Place your­self into a com­fort­able posi­tion. It is rec­om­mend­ed that you sit com­fort­ably with your back sup­port­ed and not slouch­ing. Dont wor­ry if you are cross-legged or not.  Just get com­fort­able. Place your hands in a com­fort­able posi­tion.  Either rest them apart or inter­lace your fin­gers com­fort­ably.
  3. Con­duct a short breath­ing induc­tion exer­cise to relax the body, low­er your blood pres­sure, calm the mind, and slow your thoughts,
  4. Con­duct a ground­ing, cen­ter­ing, and pro­tec­tion rit­u­al to con­nect your­self to moth­er earth and the uni­ver­sal light, and to pro­tect your light body from enti­ties of low­er vibra­tion. This por­tion of the spir­i­tu­al exer­cise may be car­ried out by speak­ing out loud, whis­per­ing, mouthing, or as a con­ver­sa­tion in your mind – it doesn’t mat­ter.  Adapt the rit­u­al for what seems prop­er for your sur­round­ings
  5. Take a short moment to say a short prayer of grat­i­tude and thanks to your angels, spir­its, and guides for their lov­ing guid­ance, care, and pro­tec­tion each day of our life.  This rit­u­al may be con­duct­ed with you speak­ing out loud, whis­per­ing, mouthing, or total­ly in your head.  The main thing is to feel like you are total­ly par­tic­i­pat­ing and not rush­ing through this por­tion of the spir­i­tu­al exer­cise. Remem­ber to be espe­cial­ly thank­ful for any good thing that hap­pened in your life where you believed that their pres­ence helped you. If the idea of pray­ing is a turn-off for you, think of this step more as a con­ver­sa­tion that you hold with your angels, spir­its, and guides with­out the reli­gious con­no­ta­tions.
  6. If you know of an ascend­ed mas­ter, angel, or guide, call upon them now to help you learn more about the con­cept you want to think about – in this case the Lux Ani­mae. Ask them to speak to you in your mind, guide your thoughts, and show you pic­tures that would help you under­stand this con­cept.  If you do know of any spe­cif­ic ascend­ed mas­ter, guide, or angel, ask your “Divine High­er Self” to speak to your mind, guide your thoughts, and place pic­tures in your mind.
  7. Engage your Spir­i­tu­al Imag­i­na­tion (dis­cussed in the les­son Spir­i­tu­al Ping­ing). You do this by imag­in­ing your guide sit­ting next to you – or across from you.  Take a moment to cre­ate your guide using the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion. Do not wor­ry that you are rely­ing upon the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion. Your guide wants to appear to you as you wish it. They want you to be total­ly com­fort­able with how they look – so spend some time cre­at­ing the appear­ance of the guide.  At some point, or lat­er on – it doesn’t real­ly mat­ter – your guide will cor­rect your cre­ation of them and appear to you in their more nat­ur­al form. The stu­dent should not wor­ry if this does not hap­pen right away.  What is more impor­tant is that you cre­ate your guide.  Once your guide is cre­at­ed, or your feel their pres­ence is there, thank them for being with you – just as you would a good friend who has stopped by. Thank them for their wis­dom and guid­ance in your life.
  8. A vari­a­tion on engag­ing the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion is pro­vid­ed for those who have dif­fi­cul­ty visu­al­iz­ing in the mind.  This vari­a­tion involves what is called, Invit­ing the Pres­ence. When we do this, we invite our spir­its, angels, and guides to come and join you in your room. Even though you can­not visu­al­ize them, ask them to sit in var­i­ous places in the room you are in (you do this with your eyes closed).  Ask an ascend­ed mas­ter to sit across from you.  Ask for two angels to stand on eithr side of you and ask for pro­tec­tion.  Ask for a depart­ed loved one to sit by your side – and so one.  The impor­tant thing here is to believe and accept that what you have asked is hap­pen­ing (and it is!). When you make the call, our guardians will come for­ward.  Thank all who you have called and thank them for their pres­ences.  Ask them to guide your thoughts, to speak to you in your mind, and to cre­ate images in your head.  Thank them ahead of time for what they will do for you.
  9. Con­tin­u­ing to engage the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion, start talk­ing to your guide. Tell them what you want to know – and begin the con­ver­sa­tion by telling them what you think you know about the sub­ject.  At some point in this con­ver­sa­tion, you’ll find that after you say some­thing in your mind, anoth­er view­point emerges – that’s a sign that your guide is speak­ing with you. Con­tin­ue with the con­ver­sa­tion – and at some point, you will find that your orig­i­nal con­ver­sa­tion has either tak­en a life of its own – or your atten­tion has been moved to an entire­ly dif­fer­ent place. If this hap­pens, just assume that your guide wish­es for your atten­tion to be else­where – just be an observ­er and fol­low the atten­tion where it goes. This move­ment of atten­tion is soul trav­el.  It means the mas­ter has tak­en you in your light body to a place it wish­es you to be. At first this may only seem like a few sec­onds, but lat­er on, the time will length­en.  For some, there is a blank space – or moment when atten­tion is entire­ly lost only to come back moments lat­er with no mem­o­ry. When this hap­pens, you should assume that your guide has tak­en you on a soul jour­ney that you can­not remem­ber.  The mem­o­ries are stored in your Lux Ani­mae – so don’t wor­ry.  You’ll get the same ben­e­fits as if you remem­bered every­thing in con­scious aware­ness – it’s all good.  In the begin­ning, you may get entire con­ver­sa­tions, or you may be shown a few visu­al sym­bols – don’t for­get the Source com­mu­ni­cates sym­bol­i­cal­ly to most peo­ple.  Sym­bols count as com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
  10. A vari­a­tion on the process above is to ask your ques­tion and pause for an answer. Wait expec­tant­ly for a short time. If noth­ing hap­pens con­tin­ue ask­ing your ques­tion. At some point, (this will always hap­pen) you will find your atten­tion has left your ques­tion and gone else­where.  New thoughts will be in your mind.  This is where the guides want your atten­tion.  So, do your best to fol­low the new thoughts or remem­ber what just passed through your mind – this was a spir­i­tu­al con­ver­sa­tion.  David often uses this tech­nique when his mind comes to con­scious aware­ness and he needs to being again.  It’s a won­der­ful tech­nique to re-cen­ter and gain under­stand­ing at the same time.
  11. After some time, you will prob­a­bly feel as though your time of con­tem­pla­tion is over.  You will find your con­scious atten­tion is more aware of it’s phys­i­cal sur­round­ings.  At this time, say a short prayer (con­ver­sa­tion) of grat­i­tude for what you have learned and for the time spent with your guide. Ask your guides to con­tin­ue to reveal the mean­ings of what you were giv­en in this peri­od of con­tem­pla­tion.
  12. Believe and do not doubt your expe­ri­ence!  This real­ly hap­pened – you real­ly con­tact­ed the real of Spir­it and Source.  You may not have a reli­gious feel­ing or feel any­thing spe­cial.  It doesn’t mat­ter how you feel – it hap­pened.  Our guides are as near as your atten­tion. The moment you think of a loved one and speak to them – they hear you.  It hap­pens just that sim­ply.  Our guides know our thoughts, and they hear us as we speak to them aloud or in our minds – it’s all about shift­ing our atten­tion. As you go through­out the rest of your day, reflect back upon your expe­ri­ence. You may find your guides spir­i­tu­al­ly ping­ing your about the mean­ings for the next sev­er­al days.

Guided Meditation

In guid­ed med­i­ta­tion, we rely upon elec­tron­ic record­ings, or pre-writ­ten scripts for help.  These record­ings are read­i­ly avail­able for no charge on YouTube and oth­er inter­net web sites. All you have to do is put on your favorite ear­phones and begin your guid­ed med­i­ta­tion.  Some mys­tics are opposed to this form of soul trav­el – but we are not.  Espe­cial­ly in the begin­ning, it is often help­ful to allow some­one else – a more expe­ri­enced per­son – to help guide our thoughts and imag­i­na­tions.  If you find it dif­fi­cult to con­struct a feel­ing or visu­al image of your spir­its, guides, or angels – a guid­ed med­i­ta­tion can be a good place to start.  Here is a short for­mu­la you might fol­low for guid­ed med­i­ta­tion.

  1. Find a guid­ed med­i­ta­tion that inter­ests you and ready it for use. Cue the audio to the begin­ning or have the script near­by for you to read.
  2. Place your­self into a com­fort­able posi­tion. It is rec­om­mend­ed that you sit com­fort­ably with your back sup­port­ed and not slouch­ing. Dont wor­ry if you are cross-legged or not.  Just get com­fort­able. Place your hands in a com­fort­able posi­tion.  Either rest them apart or inter­lace your fin­gers com­fort­ably.
  3. If your audio does not con­tain a relax­ation exer­cise, con­duct a short breath­ing induc­tion that relax­es your body, low­ers your blood pres­sure, calms the mind, and slows your thoughts,
  4. If your audio does not con­tain a ground­ing exer­cise, con­duct a ground­ing, cen­ter­ing, and pro­tec­tion rit­u­al to con­nect your­self to moth­er earth and the uni­ver­sal light, and to pro­tect your light body from enti­ties of low­er vibra­tion. This por­tion of the spir­i­tu­al exer­cise may be car­ried out by speak­ing out loud, whis­per­ing, mouthing, or as a con­ver­sa­tion in your mind – it doesn’t mat­ter.  Adapt the rit­u­al for what seems prop­er for your sur­round­ings.
  5. Lis­ten to your audio guid­ed med­i­ta­tion or fol­low your writ­ten script.
  6. Even though you are lis­ten­ing to a guid­ed med­i­ta­tion, don’t be sur­prised at some point if your find that your atten­tion has left your record­ing and gone else­where.  This is like going to a dance and then step­ping off of the floor to speak with some­one! New thoughts will be in your mind indi­cat­ing that your guides want your atten­tion else­where.  So, do your best to fol­low the new thoughts or remem­ber what just pass­es through your mind – this is a spir­i­tu­al con­ver­sa­tion. We can­not stress this enough, it is okay if your guides take you away from the record­ed or writ­ten script.  After all, our entire pur­pose was to seek guid­ance.  Don’t resist it if it hap­pens.  If your mind does not leave the audio or writ­ten script – that’s good too!
  7. When the guid­ed medi­a­tion is over – don’t for­get to say a prayer – or con­ver­sa­tion of grat­i­tude for the expe­ri­ence.
  8. Do not doubt your expe­ri­ences.  Just because a record­ing or script has been used does not mean that spir­i­tu­al trav­el has not tak­en place – it has. The moment your atten­tion was placed else­where, you began your spir­i­tu­al trav­el.  Con­trolled spir­i­tu­al trav­el is very sim­i­lar to con­trolled rides in a car – you may have known where you were going, but you still took a trip.
  9. After a while, you may find that you real­ly don’t need to rely upon these record­ings – or you may find them as a con­ve­nient induc­tion tool – know­ing that you will prob­a­bly trav­el else­where! Once that begins, you can always switch them off!

Meditation

Entire books have been writ­ten about med­i­ta­tion. Many peo­ple avoid it because they believe they won’t do it right – but that is a mis­placed fear.  Any­time your mind enters an altered state, you have prac­ticed a form of med­i­ta­tion.  In fact, any­time, you expe­ri­ence flow – the feel­ing of time­less­ness and absence of atten­tion to the sur­round­ings around you – you have expe­ri­enced a form of medi­a­tion. For most peo­ple, this hap­pens mul­ti­ple times each day as their atten­tion is cap­tured by tele­vi­sion, music, work, play, and oth­er activ­i­ties.  Yes, even sex is a form of med­i­ta­tion!

When we think of soul trav­el, med­i­ta­tion is the pro­ce­dure we use to move our atten­tion from our phys­i­cal aware­ness to the Spir­i­tus Lumine (spir­i­tu­al light, spir­i­tu­al inter­net) and begin to trav­el in our Lux Ani­mae to a spir­i­tu­al des­ti­na­tion. In con­tem­pla­tion, we usu­al­ly ask for illu­mi­na­tion about some sub­ject of inter­est.  In med­i­ta­tion, we are ask­ing to com­mune with our guides in a more open-end­ed way. There are lit­er­al­ly hun­dreds of approach­es to med­i­ta­tion.  For those trav­el­ing the Mys­ti­cal Pathy of Spir­i­tus Lumine, we use med­i­ta­tion as a form of soul trav­el. In our lessons on the inner forms, we have any num­ber of approach­es for you to con­sid­er. Here is a short for­mu­la we might use.

  1. Be clear in your mind the rea­son for your med­i­ta­tion.  It actu­al­ly helps if you write down on a piece of paper what it is that you wish to know. This is known as set­ting your inten­tion.  For instance, “I wish to meet with my ascend­ed mas­ter and trav­el to a spir­i­tu­al tem­ple so that I might receive a wis­dom teach­ing.
  2. Place your­self into a com­fort­able posi­tion. It is rec­om­mend­ed that you sit com­fort­ably with your back sup­port­ed and not slouch­ing. Dont wor­ry if you are cross-legged or not.  Just get com­fort­able. Place your hands in a com­fort­able posi­tion.  Either rest them apart or inter­lace your fin­gers com­fort­ably.
  3. Con­duct a short breath­ing induc­tion exer­cise to relax the body, low­er your blood pres­sure, calm the mind, and slow your thoughts,
  4. Con­duct a ground­ing, cen­ter­ing, and pro­tec­tion rit­u­al to con­nect your­self to moth­er earth and the uni­ver­sal light, and to pro­tect your light body from enti­ties of low­er vibra­tion. This por­tion of the spir­i­tu­al exer­cise may be car­ried out by speak­ing out loud, whis­per­ing, mouthing, or as a con­ver­sa­tion in your mind – it doesn’t mat­ter.  Adapt the rit­u­al for what seems prop­er for your sur­round­ings
  5. Take a short moment to say a short prayer of grat­i­tude and thanks to your angels, spir­its, and guides for their lov­ing guid­ance, care, and pro­tec­tion each day of our life.  This rit­u­al may be con­duct­ed with you speak­ing out loud, whis­per­ing, mouthing, or total­ly in your head.  The main thing is to feel like you are total­ly par­tic­i­pat­ing and not rush­ing through this por­tion of the spir­i­tu­al exer­cise. Remem­ber to be espe­cial­ly thank­ful for any good thing that hap­pened in your life where you believed that their pres­ence helped you. If the idea of pray­ing is a turn-off for you, think of this step more as a con­ver­sa­tion that you hold with your angels, spir­its, and guides with­out the reli­gious con­no­ta­tions.
  6. Call upon you angels, spir­its, guides, and ascend­ed mas­ters to be with you on your spir­i­tu­al trav­els. A sim­ple approach is to use the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion to see a blue light com­ming into your third-eye.  Imag­ine this blue light enter­ing the body and send­ing its ener­gies every­where.  This is the blue light of under­stand­ing and dis­cern­ment.  This blue light helps you to under­stand hid­den knowl­edge and mean­ings.  This blue light brings you wis­dom.
  7. As you imag­ine the blue light, humm the word OM.  Say it as an extend­ed word – OMMMMMMMMM. It does not mat­ter what sound you make – indeed you can even say it in your head.  Just keep imag­in­ing the blue light enter­ing your body through the third-eye and rea­peat­ing OMMMMM. Remem­ber, this is all occur­ing in the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion at the begin­ning.  Lat­ter, your guide will inter­rupt all of this and take you else­where.
  8. Your guides may inter­rupt the process or not – it real­ly doesn’t mat­ter.  The visu­al­iza­tion will increase your vibra­to­ry state and make it pos­si­ble to make a strong con­nec­tion with your ascend­ed mas­ters and guides.  So, even if you don’t feel any­thing spe­cial, just know that, on a spir­i­tu­al lev­el, you are rais­ing your vibra­to­ry state. If your guides have not inter­rupt­ed your inner chant­i­ng and blue light visu­al­iza­tion, take a moment and invite your spir­i­tu­al guide to join you.
  9. You invite them con­ver­sa­tion­al­ly – the way you would a friend.  “Ascend­ed mas­ters, lov­ing guides, I invite you to join me in my soul body com­plex.  Please join me now, guide my thoughts, and take me with you to the tem­ples of wis­dom.”  Once you can accept that their pres­ence is there with you, thank them for being with you.
  10. The impor­tant thing here is to believe and accept that what you have asked is hap­pen­ing (and it is!). When you make the call, our guardians will come for­ward. Now ask them to guide your thoughts, to speak to you in your mind, and to cre­ate images in your head.
  11. Con­tin­ue con­vers­ing with your guides and guardians – and at some point, you will find that your orig­i­nal con­ver­sa­tion has either tak­en a life of its own – or your atten­tion has been moved to an entire­ly dif­fer­ent place. If this hap­pens, just assume that your guide wish­es for your atten­tion to be else­where – just be an observ­er and fol­low the atten­tion where it goes. This move­ment of atten­tion is soul trav­el.  It means the mas­ter has tak­en you in your light body to a place it wish­es you to be. At first this may only seem like a few sec­onds, but lat­er on, the time will length­en.  For some, there is a blank space – or moment when atten­tion is entire­ly lost only to come back moments lat­er with no mem­o­ry. When this hap­pens, you should assume that your guide has tak­en you on a soul jour­ney that you can­not remem­ber.  The mem­o­ries are stored in your Lux Ani­mae – so don’t wor­ry.  You’ll get the same ben­e­fits as if you remem­bered every­thing in con­scious aware­ness – it’s all good.  In the begin­ning, you may get entire con­ver­sa­tions, or you may be shown a few visu­al sym­bols – don’t for­get the Source com­mu­ni­cates sym­bol­i­cal­ly to most peo­ple.  Sym­bols count as com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
  12. A vari­a­tion on the process above is to ask your ques­tion and pause for an answer. Wait expec­tant­ly for a short time. If noth­ing hap­pens con­tin­ue ask­ing your ques­tion. At some point, (this will always hap­pen) you will find your atten­tion has left your ques­tion and gone else­where.  New thoughts will be in your mind.  This is where the guides want your atten­tion.  So, do your best to fol­low the new thoughts or remem­ber what just passed through your mind – this was a spir­i­tu­al con­ver­sa­tion.  David often uses this tech­nique when his mind comes to con­scious aware­ness and he needs to being again.  It’s a won­der­ful tech­nique to re-cen­ter and gain under­stand­ing at the same time.
  13. After some time, you will prob­a­bly feel as though your time of med­i­ta­tion is com­plete  You will find your con­scious atten­tion is more aware of it’s phys­i­cal sur­round­ings.  At this time, say a short prayer (con­ver­sa­tion) of grat­i­tude for all you have learned and expe­ri­enced. Ask your guides to con­tin­ue to reveal the mean­ings of what you were giv­en in this peri­od of med­i­ta­tion.
  14. Believe and do not doubt your expe­ri­ence!  This real­ly hap­pened – you con­tact­ed the realms of Spir­it and Source.  You may not have a reli­gious feel­ing or feel any­thing spe­cial.  It doesn’t mat­ter how you feel – it hap­pened.  Our guides are as near as your atten­tion. The moment you think of a loved one and speak to them – they hear you.  It hap­pens just that sim­ply.  Our guides know our thoughts, and they hear us as we speak to them aloud or in our minds – it’s all about shift­ing our atten­tion. As you go through­out the rest of your day, reflect back upon your expe­ri­ence. You may find your guides spir­i­tu­al­ly ping­ing you about the mean­ings you received for the next sev­er­al days.

Eyes-Open Travel

Eyes-Open Trav­el can be prac­ticed as either an inner or out­er form.  As an inner form, the stu­dent prac­tices med­i­ta­tion in much the same way as was men­tioned ear­li­er in the sec­tion on med­i­ta­tion – except the eyes remain open and focused upon some object. As an out­er form, the stu­dent gazes at some­thing and then uses the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion to move their atten­tion to a per­son, place, or thing of inter­est. Here is a brief for­mu­la of the inner-form of eyes-open trav­el. Rather than ful­ly explain the pro­ce­dures which have been men­tioned, a short list will be pro­vid­ed with more expla­na­tion giv­en for new items.

  1. Set an inten­tion for the eyes-open  med­i­ta­tion. For instance, I want to clear my mind of all thoughts so that I might vis­it with my guardian angel.
  2. Place the body in a com­fort­able posi­tion for star­ing at some object such as a can­dle, crys­tal ball, or ran­dom artis­tic pat­tern – such as a floor tile, clouds in the sky, or a print­ed page of ran­dom dots.
  3. Do the breath­ing induc­tion.
  4. Ground and cen­ter your­self.
  5. Say a short prayer of grat­i­tude.
  6. Chant Om for a brief peri­od of time.
  7. Call upon your angels and guides to help clear your mind and then guide your thoughts as you con­duct your eyes-open med­i­ta­tion.
  8. Using your spir­i­tu­al imagination,feel the pres­ence of your guides and ask your ques­tions.
  9. If you are star­ing at a ran­dom pat­ter, allow the mind to gen­tly describe the objects that it sees.  For instance, if a face appears in the ran­dom pat­terns, begin a con­ve­sa­tion with the face using your spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion – until the point where the con­ver­sa­tion takes a life of its own – with lit­tle or no effort on your part.

A short for­mu­la for an out­er-form eyes-open med­i­ta­tion can be as sim­ple as the fol­low­ing.

  1. When you are in a cof­fee shop, select some per­son and allow your eyes to soft­ly focus upon them until you see their aura.
  2. Using your spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion, send a men­tal mes­sage to the per­son you are observ­ing and ask if one of their loved ones will come for­ward to vis­it with you.
  3. What­ev­er appears in your imag­i­na­tion, accept as valid for this spir­i­tu­al exer­cise.  Note the per­son who appears. Note their gen­der, their approx­i­mate age, and how they are dressed.
  4. Ask the per­son who appears in the spir­i­tu­al imag­i­na­tion if there is any mes­sage they would like to give you.
  5. Con­grat­u­la­tions, you have just vis­it­ed with a loved one who has passed (a dead per­son)!

I have done this any num­ber of times with my friends, and have been amazed at the accu­ra­cy of the read­ings.  No doubt you’ve watched peo­ple like John Edwards on tele­vi­sion – who have an insane abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate with dead friends and loved ones of the mem­bers in his tele­vi­sion stu­dio audi­ence. This is cer­tain­ly a skill that can be per­fect­ed over time. When you become real­ly good at it, your con­scious­ness is split between the present and the loca­tion where the dead are locat­ed.

Review

Soul trav­el is foun­da­tion­al to the Mys­ti­cal Path of Spir­i­tus Lumine. The abil­i­ty to trav­el in our light bod­ies is a God-giv­en gift that all may enjoy. Soul trav­el is some­thing that we do each day – with or with­out con­scious aware­ness. It is an acquired skill that can be devel­oped using inner and out­er forms. Usu­al­ly, peo­ple need a guide to help them get start­ed, but after that, they find that they are able to do it on their own.  Soul trav­el allows the mys­tic to vis­it with ascend­ed mas­ters, angels, spir­i­tu­al guides, depart­ed loved ones, and to trav­el inter-dimen­sion­al­ly to an infin­i­ty of places.  The more one learns about the mys­ti­cal path, the greater the increase of aware­ness about the ins and outs of soul trav­el.
