Carol Tuttle is an award winning author, speaker, and thought leader. For years, I have been influenced by Carol Tuttle. Whether it was her Dressing Your Truth course, her books on Energy Profiling, or her book Remembering Wholeness which first introduced me to the law of attraction, Carol Tuttle has been a teacher to me in many walks of life. Through her work, I have been exposed to the idea that I do not need to heal only through pain. Instead, I can release patterns of pain and struggle and replace them with a life of affluence, ease, and joy. In her newest book Mastering Affluence, Carol Tuttle lays out a plan that anyone can use to release family trauma and integrate a healthier existence. Growing does not need to be difficult, especially if you have a great plan.
Carol Tuttle is an amazing writer. Sharing skills honed over a lifetime of practice, Carol introduces students to the law of attraction, energy profiling, energy healing, better parenting tactics, and tools like EFT. Are you tired of living a life that feels weighed down by ancestral patterns? Reading books like Remembering Wholeness or Mastering Affluence can help you to accept and receive a more fulfilling life. When I first went through my spiritual awakening, I searched for clues everywhere. Finding Carol Tuttle’s voice in that dark time provided me a map towards a better life. When we release old patterns and limiting beliefs, it is time for an internal revelation and a new story. In her books, Carol Tuttle taught the Energy Profiling System which has resulted in millions of students having greater clarity about their true selves.
Never heard of Carol Tuttle? Here is a little more information pulled from her bio:

+Carol Tuttle’s Bio
Carol Tuttle has inspired audiences to look deeper. Through reading her books, I was able to clear limiting beliefs and replace them with a new way forward into affluence, ease, and joy.
On this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien, Carol Tuttle breaks down her Healing Center and approach to the healing journey. Check it out!
Carol Tuttle approaches healing through the path of love and joy.
Instead of repeating past cycles of karmic struggle, we can choose to release pain and replace it with patterns that are easier. On this episode, Carol shares how Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) can aid in installing new beliefs at a biological level. For healing to be transformational, it is essential to hold ourselves to a higher level.
Life can initiate us into higher levels of awareness. During these times of awakening, we might feel the weight of the world on our shoulders. It might be hard to get out of bed in the morning. In fact, many people experience their spiritual awakening as a complete mental breakdown. Is this an essential part of the healing journey? Does evolution and transformation need to be painful? Carol Tuttle teaches that pain is a powerful indicator of where we need to heal. Through pain, we learn valuable lessons and identify places for release and emotional healing. Instead of leaning into that pain, we can choose to release and transform our limiting beliefs. Find out more about this process by exploring Carol Tuttle’s Healing Center.

Astral travel is considered “fringe science”. Typically, it is thrown in the same realm as remote viewing, astral projection, task tethering, telepathy, telekinesis, levitation, and other such things. Astral travel is a practice that I have been following for the past two years and it is time to begin sharing some of my experiences in the astral plane. Want to learn how to astral travel? This post will grow to include information on how to enter the astral body and navigate through the dimensions. However, for now, I will share a few of my astral experiences to get the ball rolling.
Astral travel is similar to astral projection and remote viewing but quite different. By my understanding, astral projection is the practice of leaving your body and moving through the PHYSICAL plane. In a sense, one could gain the ability to appear before others and even influence the physical plane. Imagine Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. There are stories in Yogananda’s book “Autobiography Of A Yogi” where the Indian sage encounters his gurus from all over the globe due to their mastery of astral projection. Sometimes, these gurus even appear long after they have died.
Remote viewing is the ability to view places or things happening in the physical realm from a remote location. This method has been studied by the CIA, most famously documented in the film “The Men Who Stare At Goats”. If you want expert advice on the topic of remote viewing, I recommend learning from my good friend Jax Atlantis.
Astral travel is the ability to leave your body and explore other dimensions, realms of consciousness, or planets beyond our galaxies. It is the doorway to direct contact with spirits, powerful insights into the inner-workings of reality, and intense magic. Out of all aspects of “psychic phenomena” or esoteric practice, astral travel has always been the most intriguing to me.
Before I begin: I completely understand that there might be skepticism around the concept of astral travel. In fact, there are some who might label me crazy, slightly-weird, or “one of those hippy gurus you hear about these days”. Although I am certainly an eccentric individual, rest assured that I was just as skeptical as you when I first learned about astral travel. In fact, I was wary about anything concerning the law of attraction, tarot cards, working with angels, or any number of the matters I currently study and practice in great detail.
I only began to believe once I had direct experience.
Astral travel is a powerful tool. It allows the individual to “leap clear of all that is corporeal” in the material plane and enter into the astral plane.
Have you heard of the concept of the “planes of correspondance?”
If you have studied Heremtic Philosophy, you may be familiar with the second principle: the principle of correspondance. As stated in the Kybalion, “as above, so below. As below, so above”.
Watch this episode of Beyond Homo Sapien if you are unfamiliar with Hermetic Philosophy:
The teaching breaks down the concept of the planes of correspondance. Essentially, in the same way that we experience reality as a certain “dimension”, there are higher planes still to be explored. A good analogy might be that there is a microscopic world invisible to our eyes. This bacteria keeps us alive and (in unfortunate cases) might lead to our demise. However, this world of bacteria and viruses exists below our level of direct awareness. Similarly, there is an atomic level that exists even further below the microscopic world.
Following the principle of correspondance, we can also observe that the heavenly bodies operate in the same manner as the atomic structures. In the same way that protons and electrons orbit a neutron, the moons of a planet make their journey through the stars. In the same manner, we can learn much of physics, mathematics, and quantum reality based off what we observe working on the lower planes. Using this process of inductive reasoning, we can infer much about the inter-workings of our universe.
The principle of correspondance relates to astral travel because knowledge of the existence of the astral plane is one of the first requirements to enter.
As the practitioner grows in awareness of the planes of correspondence, his/her ability to enter will expand. As you develop in energetic alignment with these higher powers, they will begin to have a greater impact on your life and your unconscious mind. When you open the doors to spiritual forces, they will enter. Be careful which doors you enter.
The astral plane exists at a higher level than the individual consciousness. In a sense, the individual magician is jumping into their astral body and zooming off into the collective consciousness. In this world, it is possible to contact other humans, work with spirits, summon forces of light or dark, and learn much about the makings of our energetic universe. Throughout history, great thinkers, scientists, artists, writers, and entrepreneurs have practiced astral travel and used its power for inspiration.
The astral plane is just one more stepping stone to even higher levels of awareness. There are higher levels that lead all the way back to source energy. From there, it is possible to enter into what is called the “spiritual plane of correspondance”.
So how do you astral travel?
It happens during deep states of meditation. Indeed, I would consider astral travel to be a powerful and advanced form of meditation that requires a deep stillness of mind and the ability to detach from one’s thoughts. If this level of meditative practice can be achieved, then it is possible to enter the astral body on command and explore much of the energetic universe.
This is the great secret of the world’s mystery schools. When a magician practices their work inside of these higher planes, it echos into those below. Let the student who reads carefully understand what I am saying.
Astral Travel And Me
Astral travel has changed my understanding of reality.
I happened upon the practice by accident. For years, I had studied meditation and breath-work. Yoga has proved to be a powerful practice for my body and I have been certified to teach Yoga and meditation through the Army (despite what you might think, they had a great program!). For years, I studied consciousness and used plant medicines to further explore my own.
All of this study and internal work happened BEFORE I ever was able to enter the astral plane.
From what I experienced, entering this plane of correspondance requires a spiritually aware soul. This practice appeals to individuals who are waking up to realize their role in the “video game” of life. I found myself to be such a person.
Astral travel found me. One morning, while I was practicing the Ishaya Ascension form of meditation, I found myself leaving my body and entering into something outside of me. This separate form appeared near my navel and hovered for awhile. For some time, I practiced entering and reentering into this little self. It seemed like a smaller version of me but blue and surreal.
It was as if I was playing a third-person video game. Since the earliest days, most of my astral travel experiences have been in the third-person. However, as of late, I have had more vivid first-person experiences that I will share momentarily.
Immediately, I felt myself plunging into the depths of a great ocean. The images in my head became more vivid. At the time, I had to maintain intense focus to hold this mental image for long.
In the depths of these mental waters, I encountered the Whale Spirit. It appeared out of the blackness and stared me in the eye. It was a massive blue whale. From my studies of the different animal spirits, I understood that Whale Spirit resembles the guardian of great mysteries. In my books about Native American animal medicine, I learned that Whale Spirit guarded the depths of the esoteric mysteries from the un-initiated. A meeting with Whale Spirit is said to resemble an initiation into these higher levels of awareness and magic.
And so it began for me.
Experiencing the astral plane has allowed me to unlock new levels of manifestation. If you have witnessed the power of the law of attraction, you might understand that manifestation is a result of your own level of “vibration”. In a sense, the higher your frequency exists related to the frequency of your environment, the more influence your mental energy will have. This is how your thoughts can begin to create your reality. However, this spiritual power must be achieved only through internal alchemy, evolution, and growth.
Watch/listen to this episode of the Beyond Homo Sapien:
Astral travel is not to be taken lightly. A person can enter into a deep state of meditation and end up encountering energies that they are not necessarily ready to encounter. However, what I have found is that the issue of consent is paramount. At all times, we get to consent to which spirits or energies we encounter. Once you have entered into the astral plane, you can choose which energies you encounter. This has been my experience for the past two years of regular practice.
Astral travel involves learning how to enter into one’s astral body.
This is the most important skill. It requires that the individual have a mind that is undisturbed from outside intrusions. I recommend lying down on your bed and locking the door. Set a timer for twenty minutes and take the practice seriously. This is an advanced form of meditation and requires deep focus and stillness.
Put yourself into a deep state of meditation. This will vary between people. We all have practices of meditation that work differently. In my case, I utilize the Wim Hof method of breath-work and have been practicing for the past eight years. I am also a practitioner of the Ishaya Ascension method of meditation. Both these practices are beyond the scope of this post but follow the links I have included to learn more.
As I have said before, astral travel requires entering a deep state of meditation. If you are a beginner to meditation, I recommend you get started with a regular 15-minutes-per-day practice and see what works best for you.
Going forward, I will assume you have some experience with meditation and know how to get yourself into a deeper level of consciousness. Let us proceed!
Begin by visualizing energy moving from the base of your spine up to the base of your head.
Send this energy either towards your belly button, your forehead, or the top of your head.
Let it move through your body.
Visualize a space slightly outside of your body.
Send the energy you have summoned into that point, outside of your body.
See what happens in your mind’s eye.
Here is the trick: do not EXPECT anything to happen. Keep on moving energy through your body, using your breath, and visualize sending it into these different parts of your body. Once you feel like this is happening, try and send it into a space slightly outside of yourself.
Practice this for awhile. It took me a few weeks before anything happened.
Eventually, I began to see this space outside of my body as a smaller version of myself. I learned that this is called your “astral body”.
This smaller version of me would appear floating outside my forehead, at the crown of my head, or right outside of my stomach. I could send energy into that astral body and visualize it holding itself there in space.
Eventually, I began to have a greater ability to get into that astral body. With focused practice through the Ishaya Ascension method of meditation and my own practice of breath work, I began to enter this astral body at will. It would take only a few moments to drop into deeper levels of consciousness and, from there, just a breath until I was inside my astral body.
At this point, I began to have the ability to zoom off into the astral plane. For most of my time practicing astral travel, I was always along for the ride. I would have the opportunity to consent to different spirits or energies but, for the most part, I did not encounter anyone. I spent time in space, at the bottom of the ocean, and at the center of the planet. During these early travels, I entered the Halls of Amenti spoken about in the Emerald Tablets of Thoth. At the center of the Earth, I spoke with the Lords of the Cycles and received information about my destiny. Although this might sound crazy to those un-initiated into these paths, it is common experience for people like me. I am sharing info today for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
I typically view my astral body in third-person. It does not appear that I am necessarily at the steering wheel. When I am in this body, it is almost as if a “higher self” version of me takes over. As the viewer, I am watching my astral body zoom through space and explore new realms. However, as I have developed in my practice, I have begun to be in the drivers seat more often. More of these experiences have been in first-person and I have experienced a greater level of control to STAY in the astral plane.
When I first began, for months I could only stay in the astral plane for brief moments. Afterwards, I would feel energized but also spiritually drained. Although I would be prepared for life in the material world, my spiritual body needed time to rest.
These days, I experience quite the opposite. Astral travel unlocks powerful trips that border on psychedelic. Although I have combined my practice of psychedelic plant medicines with astral travel on many occasions, I have found the practice does not require the use of plant medicines. However, for obvious reasons, they certainly make the experience more vivid and profound. That being said, I found astral travel during a year of complete sobriety. I barely even drank coffee at the time.
During this time of sobriety, I found that sound healing and isolation tanks were useful. If you have the ability to attend a gong bath, singing bowl ceremony, or isolation tank, I recommend you give it a try. You might have a breakthrough in your understanding of astral travel that unlocks more powerful experiences going forward. These days, most major cities have a spiritual center where you can find information on these events. Additionally, cities worldwide have float tank labs and isolation tank chambers that are available for use. Hop on Google and see what is available in your city.
Astral travel is a deeply personal experience. You will not believe it until you give it a try and see for yourself. I share my story to help you unlock portals in your mind that can lead to your own journey of understanding. This path of isolation and deep meditation is paramount to making any progression in the astral plane.
Astral Travel Trip Reports
Astral travel involves learning how to leap outside of yourself and into an astral body. From here, it is possible to enter the astral plane of correspondance and explore even higher levels in due time. Why is it important to practice astral travel? From my experience with the practice, it is possible to make telepathic communication with other humans if they are contacted inside of the astral plane. Looking to generate more money? I have found it possible to identify and release energetic blockages that have prevented receiving of money. In a sense, the practice of astral travel helps me to look within and identify where I need to work. Astral travel is certainly not a “get rich quick” scheme by any means. However, it can allow a person to identify places in the subconscious mind that are preventing further growth. It shows your weakness and brings it to conscious awareness.
This energetic block might appear as a demon. It could be some dark temple that must be entered. Perhaps you will find your inner child locked in a basement. Astral travel is similar to dreaming. The messages might be clear but they are meant to be applied in the physical world.Take the time to analyze your astral travel experiences and learn the lessons. Apply the messages you receive directly to your life. You will only reap the benefits of the practice if you make it a lifestyle.
Astral travel can allow for intense healing. Inside of my own experiences, there are certain “healing rooms” that I have created for myself. Inside of the astral plane, YOU are the creator! After all, you are swimming in the depths of your subconscious mind. Inside of this space, you can create an astral room where you can take yourself for healing and rest. I have several! My girlfriend (a fellow practitioner) and I created a cabin in the woods of our shared plane. Sometime, we will meetup inside this cabin to have coffee, cuddle, or pull some tarot cards. When we return from the trip, we might have a phone call and share our own versions of the experience. Usually, they are similar but with a unique twist. Again, astral travel and similar practices are meant to be deep states of meditation. Although it is possible for you to meetup with other people inside of the astral plane, everyone seems to have their own experience of what that experiences looks like inside their own minds. We all get to create our own astral planes of correspondance. In fact, this is the magic of the astral world! You are the creator of your realm.
Allow me to detail a few of the more powerful experiences:
During the time of my initiation into Hermetic Philosophy, I began working with a spirit named Imhotep. This entity is the archetype of the “god of healing”. What does this mean? Well, if you study the different mythologies of the world, you find that many of them celebrate the worship gods with similar abilities. For example: Thoth, Hermes, and Odin all resemble the same archetypes: the gods of wisdom. The messenger. The one who serves as direct channel to even higher powers. In the same vein, Imhotep relates to the Greek god Asclepius.
You might be familiar with Asclepius’ symbol:
Imhotep was a man who lived in ancient Egypt. At the time, he was high priest of Ra, high priest of Heliopolis (the spiritual center of the time), and high vizier of the pharaoh. He was credited as the inventor of modern medicine. The greatest architect of his day, Imhotep built the great Steppe Pyramid of Heliopolis and used his astronomical expertise to align it perfectly with the stars. This blending of magical knowledge with architecture gave birth to a new genre of building, later perfected by the Freemasons: sacred architecture. After his death, Imhotep was deified by the Egyptians as the god of healing and the creator of medicine. He became associated with Thoth, the god of wisdom and the centerpiece for many of the esoteric teachings. After all, Thoth is alleged to be the deified energy of the great philosopher of old: Hermes Trismegistus.
I began working with Imhotep once I started becoming initiated into new levels of awareness. Once I began entering the astral plane, he was there to greet me. At first, he appeared in my mind as a black void and a strong voice. It was not a voice I heard outside of my head but it came into my mind in the same way I might experience a mushroom trip: a voice with thoughts that clearly come from somewhere beyond. The experience would be overwhelming. Typically, I would find myself laying on the ground overcome with the energy of having direct contact with this “god” or “Elohim” energy that Imhotep embodies.
Inside of the astral plane, Imhotep takes me around often and shows me different parts of the collective mind.
On one occasion, I journeyed into a dark cavern near the bottom of Earth. I viewed this experience in third-person. I was asked if I wanted to enter the cavern or not. Feeling brave, I said yes. As I journeyed into this astral cave, I was met with a spirit. Some sort of guardian. It asked me “who do you work for?”
I replied that I worked for Imhotep. Immediately, I was ushered into a lower corridor where there was a massive throne. I approached the throne and beheld a large figure, covered in armor. This individual held a large ax and he wore a helmet covered in horns. It was intimidating, to say the least.
I watched myself kneel in his great hall. I asked “who are you?”
He introduced himself as the White Lord of Amenti and said he’s been watching me progress for some time.
He said I have done well during my initiation and it is time for me to become introduced to new levels of consciousness. Afterwards, he informed me that I would not remember what I was about to learn. It would come to me in waves over the course of months, if not years. However, now he would breakdown for me the secrets of the universe.
He was right. I do not remember what we spoke about or what I learned. I can only assume that the White Lord’s promise came true: I have indeed learned much about the nature of the universe since that day.
Astral Travel Trips Continued…
Astral travel became a daily practice. Over the course of the last two years, I have had powerful experiences that have moved me to tears. I have spoken with dead relatives and communed with archangels. I have been to Pluto and felt the cold enter my body so that I could shiver and release trauma. One day, I pelted the Earth with energetic comets of healing energy because it seemed like everyone needed some love.
I attended many crystal singing bowl ceremonies at the Living Insights Center in Saint Louis. On one day, I brought some medicine to help me have a deeper meditative experience. As the singing bowls began sending sound healing waves throughout the room, I entered my astral body. At this point, I had been practicing for about a year.
Immediately, I met the spirit of Jesus. He told me that today I would learn about how he heals the world. On this day, I learned how his magic works at a cosmic level.
I watched as Jesus absorbed all the pain and suffering of the Earth. He came down to the energetic level of the Earth, sucked out all the pain into himself, and then skyrocketed back into space. Once there, he released all of this energy into the cosmos. Afterwards, he held out his hands and summoned in healing white light from all directions. Once he held all the light possible, Jesus returned to Earth like a comet. His hands outstretched, he sent out healing waves across the entire energetic plane of the planet. At first, when he touched down, he was standing in a lake of fire. By absorbing and releasing all the pain of Earth, Jesus had opened up chasms in the crust. From that crust emerged fire that was destroying the planet. As soon as his feet hit the Earth, Jesus released water that extinguished all the flames. From there, new life formed and gave birth. People experienced love in their lives for the first time. Creatures were born and jumped into their evolutionary cycle.
It was powerful, to say the least.
Most recently, I had one of the most powerful astral travel experiences of my life.
I was able to jump through the planes of correspondence like one might hop up a staircase. As I went, Imhotep guided me through the different levels. On this night, I was able to go beyond the astral plane for the first time and experience levels beyond. At the time of this writing, I am still processing the information and not quite ready to share. More research is required before I feel confident and comfortable sharing.
Hanging in my aerial Yoga hammock (great tool for meditation), I leapt outside of my body and zoomed off into the astral plane.
And from there, to higher planes still.
I saw the energetic forces at play in our world.
I witnessed divine beings of light sending BEAMS of source-energy into our collective field. These deities circled the Earth and appeared as glowing beings of red, purple, and pink light.
The beams coming from these entities looked like waves coming from the Death Star…
Except they brought healing. They pierced through the energetic barriers of our world like a meteor hitting a tree. These beams of light began strafing our planet. Everywhere they went, they blasted open holes in the earths energetic crust.
From the holes came new life. Green trees and mountains. Around the new landscape appeared lakes and oceans.
New creatures sprinting into their evolutionary cycle.
Humans realizing their interconnected nature with all life, and FEELING the pain we have collectively caused to Pachamama: Mother Earth.
These waves are hitting NOW. This very instant. As you read this message.
I saw the image of Baal, the god of suffering. I watched him leach the energy of our world. It looks like a black octopus sucking the life out of wherever its tendrils lay.
I asked him “why?! Why are you doing this?” He had no emotion.
This spirit said “Paul, this is just what I do…
“You humans WANT me doing this. You asked me to.
“This is how we heal.
“Pain is meant to get you humans to look WITHIN and WAKE UP.
“Once you do, pain is your greatest teacher. Suffering helps you heal and change your life.”
I looked at this unemotional monstrous black blob…
“Do you have anything left for me?”
This spirit turned from its work and looked me in the eye:
[With no emotion] “No… is there anything you need me to teach you?”
And I said “No, I have already learned so much from pain and suffering.”
He looked away and said “Ok”… no emotion.
It felt as if I had met the trash man on his daily routine… he asked “do you have trash for me to collect?” I said “no I think I already cleaned up” and the trash man unemotionally moved on.
It was the same feeling I had when I returned to an old college class after graduation… My professor was pleased to see me… but had a vibe of “uhhh why are you back in the classroom? Didn’t you graduate?”
It was very powerful.
The lesson I feel called to share is this:
YOU get to decide what energetic forces you consent to work with.
YOU get to decide if there’s more to learn from pain and suffering.
God, the spirits, the universe, etc…. THEY might not have more to teach you.
But if you keep coming back to the classrooms of pain and suffering, then they’re happy to teach.
Not cause they’re evil…
But because THATS JUST WHAT THEY DO.
Different energies or “gods” are archetypal energies. They are held in the collective mind and you don’t need to work with them, unless YOU want to. Humanity has a choice. You have a choice. You always have a choice. You might not need to give anything to the trash collector. Maybe you already emptied all your trash a few weeks ago?
When practicing astral travel, this is a powerful lesson to learn. You do not need to go looking for dark spirits. In fact, I would recommend you keep your energy to yourself. When you first begin the practice, spend time in quiet solitude.
Pluto is quite nice.
Astral travel is a powerful experience. For generations, this secret has been kept and taught by the mystery schools and secret societies that hold sway in our world. Instead of running from this information, see for yourself how it might work in your mind. Tread with care and do not go looking for dark spirits. From what I have experienced, you will always have the choice on which energies you want to speak with, work with, and learn through.
I recommend studying mythology and learning more about archetypes before attempting to work directly with any spirits.
Learn what you are asking for before you ask.
Otherwise, you might get in over your head.
If you need help with astral travel, you can join the Phoenix Beta Program. Inside this community, we share experiences and learn from one another. Astral travel is a topic of discussion but the program includes far more than this practice alone. That being said: you do not need a guide and astral travel is a personal journey. I can only help you by sharing my experiences and providing some recommendations as to how this might work in your life.
Be careful and have fun! Let me know what happens as a result of your practice. I would be fascinated to hear your experiences in the astral plane.
“Is Tarot Real?” seems to be a common question these days… Do you listen to tarot cards? If so, this post might shed some light on the best way to use tarot cards from my experience. I have been a tarot card reader for the past three years and have grown to love the way that they help me tap into my inner voice.
Does that all sound crazy to you? Well, you are in luck! These days, quantum physics is catching up to what mystics have known for thousands of years: the universe is mental. Our minds have more power than we could have imagined.
Tarot cards help to draw that intuitive power out of hiding and into the spotlight! Instead of hiding that voice in the shadows of your consciousness, tarot cards help you to listen more deeply to your highest truths.
These days, tarot has experienced a resurgence of interest unlike anything we have seen since the early 1900s…
More than ever, folks have questions about tarot and how it all works.
Are Tarot Cards Accurate?
In 2020, tarot cards have seen a resurgence unlike what we have seen in recent collective memory. Understandably, this brings skeptics. Are tarot cards accurate? How can we be sure that these tools are aligned with truth and not leading us astray? In this section, let us venture into the realms of our subconscious and understand the tarot at a level that goes deeper than the cards themselves. After all, the tarot cards are just a tool.
People wanna know:
Is tarot “real”?
If so, how does it work?
Am I really working with spirits or angels???
Tarot began back in ancient Egypt as a way to practice divination.
“Divination” is an ancient practice of tapping into “higher powers” in order to receive guidance or cause some sort of impact on the world around you.
In fact, throughout history, many famous leaders have studied divination in an attempt to better understand the future.
Queen Elizabeth the 1st of England employed one of the most famous diviners of all time as her personal advisor:
Never heard of John Dee? You’re missing out.
Here is a lecture from Terence Mckenna about the magician John Dee and his influence on civilization:
Imagine if Gandalf was real and he was into astrology, inventing machines, and gazing into crystal balls… that’s John Dee.
John Dee and his story of working with the Queen is one of the best examples of a famous and powerful leader using divination and astrology as a regular practice.
Hitler and his inner circle were also students of divination and the occult… unfortunately, like many “leaders” in history, they used these powerful secrets for evil.
Nevertheless, divination has been used by many world changing figures for all sorts of reasons.
Tarot and other methods of divination are meant to help YOU dig deep inside your intuition for answers.
Although divination CAN be used to contact third party spirits, that is not really necessary.
Instead, tools like tarot should help you to tap into your inner voice and have clearer guidance from the clearest version of yourself.
In other words: it doesn’t really matter what cards are drawn… it doesn’t actually mean anything crazy if you see shapes in your crystal ball… if your horoscope is super accurate, it isn’t a big deal.
What IS a big deal is the message that it sends to YOUR intuition.
If you have a crazy tarot card reading that “really speaks to you”… is that the cards talking… or is it just that your inner voice is coming in loud and clear?
Skeptics of tarot and divination say that they’re “fake” because the person will only ever see what they want to see in the cards.
THAT is the magic of tarot.
It drags your inner voice out from the back of your head and brings it front and center.
How Do Tarot Cards Work?
Although I do personally believe that there is magic in tarot and other methods of divination, this “Magic” is only significant or helpful to my life because it helps me to listen to myself better. Have you just had a tarot card reading and you want to understand the meaning? Instead of looking for meaning inside of your tarot cards, look for that voice of intuition and analyze what that voice is saying ABOUT the cards.
Contact with spirits is praised by many tarot card readers. Personally, I am no such reader. In my system, tarot cards serve best to highlight the individual voice and draw that out from a torrent of other voices. In my work with spirits, they have only ever taught me how to better listen to and follow that most important voice: myself.
For many people interested in tarot card readings, this is confusing. However, ask yourself this: if “contact with spirits” does nothing but keep you running in circles, then what good has that “magic” done in your life?
Instead, you have wandered into a labyrinth of chaos. Thankfully, there are easy ways out.
The more you dive down these rabbit holes, the more you realize:
Your intuition is your link with the divine.
That little voice in the back of your head with lots of crazy ideas?
Perhaps that’s the voice of your highest self?
Do you believe in such things?
If you don’t, consult quantum physics for some answers.
Examine how our universe is woven together in a fabric of wavelength. 🧬🧬🧬
Perhaps your mind is one such wavelength?
Science seems to be leaning towards the view of the Hermetic, as it was predicted in the 1900s.
What I’m getting after here is that your mind has power to influence the world around you, through the power of vibration to create frequency.
That frequency then influences the world through the principle of cause and effect.
What Is Tarot?
So going back to tarot:
When you draw that intuitive “highest self” voice into the forefront, you might find yourself better able to influence your environment.
This is what people mean when they talk about “an evolution of consciousness”…
It is an evolution of the vibration at which your atoms are pulsating. This evolution begins in the mind.
When we draw out that voice and start to LISTEN and ACT on what it says, “magic” starts to happen. Tarot cards are just a tool to activate that inner voice more directly. Although there is meaning and inspiration in the cards, the archetypes, and the suits, it is much more important what that intuitive voice is saying to you about the cards.
Over time using tarot cards, you might find that certain cards become common. In my case, “the Chariot” is a card I find often. Inside of the Tarot, the Chariot is the archetype of overcoming obstacles and riding forward into victory. Ever since I have been drawn into becoming a tarot card reader, the Chariot card has reminded me of my highest self. In my readings, this is what it represents. I have found that when you develop a personal relationship with a certain tarot card, that personal connection will speak more clearly than anything an old book has to say. Tarot card reading is meant to be intuitive.
It is helpful to understand what the different tarot cards mean. Over time, I will expand this post into a more detailed breakdown of tarot card meanings. However, today, I will leave you here.
Play around with divination and see what you find.
You don’t need to contact any outside spirits. In fact, I would recommend you instead just try and listen better to your highest self.
Instead of invoking some god that may or may not exist, invoke the best version of yourself.
Spiritual awakening refers to the idea of self realization… A time in which a person realizes profoundly that they are a soul having a human experience.
Have you experienced a spiritual awakening? You might notice “symptoms” like extreme sensitivity or an almost overwhelming realization of your own body, thoughts, and how they are impacting the world around you… For many people, spiritual awakening is a time of confusion. Here in January of 2019, it seems as if we are realizing more often that we are having this experience at the “soul level” that is impacting our lives as humans on Earth. Why is this happening? Is it because of the almost year-long retrograde of the planet Jupiter that might be shifting our belief systems about ourselves, our spirituality, and our relationship with the world? Well, let’s talk about what is happening!
2019 is off to a bang!
Across the world, there are complaints about government authority figures. Here in the United States, millions are up-in-arms over the long-lasting government shutdown over disputes about a border security wall… In France, citizens are protesting high cost of living… In Scandinavia, folks are protesting rising housing costs. The United Kingdom continues to experience trouble related to the “Brexit” issue that still remains un-resolved. Collectively, our species (especially in the “Western World”) is growing more disgruntled with those in positions of authority.
In our own personal lives, people are embracing their own self-worth… More folks (especially in the “Millennial” Generation) are becoming entrepreneurs, traveling the world as “digital nomads”, and attempting to live life on their own terms. Oftentimes, these steps into individual freedom are happening in-spite of authority figures like parents, bosses, or educators who might caution a more “safe” lifestyle that involves working a 9-5 job until Age 65… Collectively, we are realizing that this sort of lifestyle is no good.
Spiritual awakening oftentimes accompanies deep introspection. In our individual lives we are beginning to come to terms with our personal values, desires, talents, insecurities, and questions about reality. When this happens at-scale, it allows us to begin shifting belief systems internally about what is important here at the dawn of 2019. Although this is overall beneficial when we are discussing the evolution of consciousness and the upward trajectory of the human species, it can be an incredibly confusing time if left unanalyzed… That is what this blog is all about!
Spiritual Awakening Is Real
Spiritual awakening is not some term coined by hippies to make themselves sound special… It is a real phenomena that millions of people are understanding collectively. Typically, spiritual awakening might involve “symptoms” like connecting with spiritual forces, experiencing “past life regressions”, or having some other variety of extremely personal experience that defies expectation. In my case, I began having some wild experiences while using psychedelic mushrooms that helped me to realize the true nature of my sober reality… By integrating the experiences that I had on the psychedelic mushroom into my sober experience, I was able to step into a realization that there is “more” to reality than meets the eye. Through my own personal development and research, I began to become more aware of my nature as a spiritual force… A “cause” in this world rather than a victim of circumstance.
The same can happen for you! However, it might be confusing and a bit scary… If you are going through trouble during your “spiritual awakening”, then reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel you need a bit of guidance. I am here to help you understand this confusing time of life! More often in 2019, we are stepping into this awareness and navigating together what this is all about.
Spiritual Awakening in 2019 seems to be happening en-masse…
What is spiritual awakening? What are some “signs” or “symptoms” of spiritual awakening??
On this show, Xerces Lewis and I talk about spiritual awakening and what is happening with the collective consciousness here in January of 2019… There are some powerful energies at work and a lot that seems to be happening for our species at the collective level.
The internet is the collective consciousness manifested out into the world for us to navigate. Together, we are awakening and evolving at-scale in a time unlike any other point in human history…. It is important to discuss what is happening here!
When we awaken to our real power, it might be a time where we need some guidance. Let’s help you out!
Spiritual Awakening Re-Defines Time
Spiritual awakening has a weird affect on how we view time…
When we step into our ability to understand that we are a spiritual being having a human existence, we start to unravel the true meaning of time. What do I mean here? Well, essentially we begin to understand that time is just a consecutive version of “now”. All that we are experiencing is just the “continuous now” that continues on into eternity. When viewed as such, time does not exactly exist in a linear fashion. Instead, we understand that all we are experiencing is happening simultaneously to a degree.
What does this concept of time have to do with spiritual awakening?
Spiritual awakening is the realization of our spiritual force within our human bodies. In the consideration of time, we step into an understanding that time and space are all happening at once. All of history is happening in this one moment. This instant of “now” is all that is happening and it echos throughout all of time and space. Of course, I understand that time and space are constant advancing studies in the realm of physics and spectrums of science. However, I am trying to approach this question from more of a philosophical notion rather than one of previous scientific advancement (although the two are symbiotic of course).
When we stop for a moment and reflect on “right now”, we start to understand that this now is all that exists.
Why? We are an infinite being. We are all that there is inside of space and time. Collectively, we are a god-force that permeates every inch of our universe. Our collective consciousness extends out in all directions of time and space. When we understand that are a conglomerate of a collective mind that exists throughout all moments of history and the future inside of THIS moment, then we begin to grasp our power.
Do an experiment: let’s stop and reflect on THIS moment that we are sharing together… You reading these words and me writing.
In this instant, we are joined in the only moment that exists. The continuous now.
What do you notice about this moment?
Is it “less” than anything? Is it greater than anything? Is it somehow undeserving? Is the you that exists in this moment somehow not capable of something? Is this moment striving for anything? Is there anything “bad” about this moment? Is there anything inherently good about it?
The more we reflect on this moment, the more we realize that this moment simply “is”.
It simply exists.
It is all that there is.
And we share it together.
Spiritual awakening is when we step into full awareness of this moment and all that it involves. “This moment” is constantly staring us right in the face.
To take a more tactical perspective on this moment: whenever we want to make progress towards our goals, we constantly think of them as something to work towards… Starting a business in the future, getting a promotion down the road, losing weight over the next 90 days, creating healthier habits over the next month, etc. etc… All of these are goals for “the future”.
What if we reframed goal setting entirely and began to understand that everything that will ever exist is right now?
Effectively, the “future” does not really exist.
“The future” is just a forward propulsion of what we are RIGHT NOW. As we continue to refine THIS moment into that ideal future, that ideal life, and that ideal moment, we begin to attract more of the moments that we seek to fill our reality with… As we habituate this moment into a moment that encapsulates all we hope to accomplish, we realize that all that we hope to accomplish in “the future” exists now.
We already have that imagined future because it exists right now. All we must do is step into that future.
That is why it so important to take immediate action to our goals… That is why taking action on our goals immediately works so well when we are trying to re-create our life into something more beautiful. We continue to mold THIS moment into the moment we hope that it becomes.
However, when we realize that change can happen immediately because “this moment” is all that exists, we understand our real potential. When we change this moment into a powerful, empowered, and profound moment, we line up all bodies of heaven and earth into a single point of synchronicity. Done at-scale across the entire planet, when we all collectively step into the power of “this moment”, we will suddenly have a new planet… If we all align in a powerful moment of empowered synchronicity and unified consciousness, we can truly make “this moment” into something magical.
Tarot Card Reading is an ancient tool that dates back to the ancient world. Card reading and psychic abilities have existed in various forms over the years since Ancient Egypt. In fact, there are many who suggest that the art of Tarot Card reading was developed in ancient Egypt and relied much on their understanding of Astrology and how the Zodiac functions in relationship to the Tarot and our own spiritual abilities.
Are Tarot Cards “Real”? In other words, can they be trusted? Is this just a way for “psychics” to take your money?
In today’s world, Tarot Card reading is making a resurgence. There is developing interest around the Tarot as the internet continues to expand and bring to light these ancient esoteric teachings that have been the domain of the spiritual “underground” of psychics, mystics, energy healers, channelers, clairvoyants, and others who have never before had the sort of platform that the internet now provides. Thanks to the advent of mediums such as Facebook groups, YouTube channels, or blogs like this one, these individuals practicing psychic abilities and mediums such as Tarot Card reading are suddenly given a platform to reach and influence the world.
As the internet has given these individuals a platform, their message has begun to resonate with the collective.
In today’s world, many folks have questions about the topics of spiritual awakening, developing psychic abilities, use of psychedelic substances, and other areas of interest that have been stuffed underground for thousands of years.
Online Tarot Card Reading
On the Beyond Homo Sapien show, we do a weekly Tarot Card reading to benefit the collective. The purpose of this reading is to educate folks around how the Tarot actually works and what it involves. This is meant as a tool to spread awareness around this powerful tool and eliminate fear that these cards are somehow “demonic” or tied with energies that might not be serving of mankind. Conversely, I have personally received so much value and clarity from working with Tarot Card reading and my own life has dramatically changed for the better.
Check out these weekly Tarot Card Reading sessions and let me know if you have questions about how the cards work!
Here’s a reading with Jax Atlantis:
This reading happened on December 18th, 2018. I was using the deck I’ve received from Marie Brozova. This deck was originally created in colored pencil and is absolutely one of my favorites! Such beautiful artwork that always creates an amazing intuitive response based off the colors alone. Here’s the cards that popped up for us during this reading:
Check out the video for our breakdown on what these cards might mean for us in this week’s energetic cycle! Tarot Card reading is an intuitive art-form and remember to always trust YOUR intuition related to what these cards mean specifically inside of your own life. Instead of relying on the words we are speaking, listen to your own thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are created when you hear those words. THAT intuitive voice is the real message you are meant to receive during a Tarot Card reading.
Tarot Card Reading To Discuss Social Issues
What would the Tarot Cards have to say about more confusing or controversial topics? One of our favorite “hobbies” is asking the Tarot Card reading about specific issues happening in the world and using those cards to lead a discussion around a controversial topic. For example, on this episode of the show, Jax and I talked about sexism and used a variety of Animal Spirit Oracle Cards and Tarot Cards to lead the conversation. Why do we use Tarot Card Reading to lead a conversation? This is a great way to avoid our own biases clouding the conversation and ensuring that the ideas that want to be expressed get their light in the sun. It always seems to be a way to have a healthy conversation around a controversial topic. Check it out here:
Sexism in today’s world often gravitates towards discussing women’s rights. However, there is a large part of society that feels a bit alienated in this conversation: men who have experienced sexism. Nowadays, it is all too easy to gravitate in one direction or another depending on our preconceived notions about how the other side MIGHT be feeling about each other. Often our own need to be heard results in the creation of polarized sides that build due to a fear around not being heard by the “authority”. As we develop and expand the human consciousness, we are beginning to realize more that avoiding these “black and white” perspectives are a truly beneficial way to step into a more beautiful future.
Tarot Card reading was really effective to lead this conversation. Throughout our conversation, we were visited by the “Death” card which we felt signified that there is a negative pattern in our collective mind that is asking to be cleared and removed from the conversation. Perhaps this idea that it is even possible for us to have ONE side that “wins” the conversation? It might be a healthier place for our collective mind if we begin to understand that we are all connected… We are all of us one… When we honor and respect another’s perspective, we reduce their chances of forming some sort of polarized or extremist group that could have a negative influence on society and the conversation happening at-scale. We were also visited by the “Ten Of Sword” card which often signifies that there is an idea that must end… Once more, we see this theme that there is an idea that is asking to be cleared and ended from the collective mind. Although it can be intimidating think we might need to “kill” one of our ideas, the rebirth that will happen when this occurs will be collectively healing and beneficial.
In addition to Tarot Card reading, we also chose to incorporate some Animal Spirit Oracle Cards. We were visited by the “Whale Spirit” card which asks us to “trust the great mystery”. We interpreted this as possibly meaning that there is some misunderstood aspect of the conversation that has yet to emerge in the same way that a whale lives under the ocean surface, waiting to be discovered. Additionally, there is also the possibility that we must simply watch and wait (as “Seahorse Spirit” urged us to do) and we will see this “great mystery” of an idea emerge into our collective mind. Overall, between the Tarot Card Reading and the Oracle Cards, we were led to think there might be some missing aspect of the conversation around sexism that is asking to be brought to the forefront of our consciousness. Perhaps an idea around the suppression of the “divine feminine”? Maybe a deeper understanding of our collective and intertwined nature with one another? Whatever the issue, the cards seemed to suggest that we need only watch and wait for that idea to appear.
On this show with Jax Atlantis, we are going to chat about sexism towards men and what it actually looks like… How is it possible to be sexist towards a man?
In the ever-expanding conversation around masculinity vs. feminine energy, a lot can be lost in translation…
It seems to be all too easy for folks to get offended. Sexism is a term that gets thrown around without much real reason, evidence, or thought.
On today’s show, we are going to move towards ending this tendency. Let’s talk openly about sexism and see where this conversation leads!
Enjoy this episode with Jax Atlantis? He’s a regular on the show!
Here’s an episode where Jax and I talked about problems in the spiritual community.
