The Path To Enlightenment


Written by: Gary Wonning

Enlightenment comes in small steps, not giant leaps, it is by these small steps that we evolve spiritually, so it was with my first experiences with past life recall. Although at the time neither myself, or the people that I was sharing this with realized what this all meant, every one of us were taught something and our values and beliefs were forever changed.

A New World is Revolving

It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear, this always is true. However, in most cases, it is hard to distinguish the teacher from the student. The student and teacher are one, and as such the combined intellect becomes available to the group as a learning experience that can be shared equally, based on the perceptibly of the individual parties concerned.

Follow Your Instincts


Writtten by : Gary Wonning

 I feel most people know more about God when they were five years old than we do now after years of false indoctrination. It seems crazy, but when I need to know what the truth  really is, I go inside myself back to that five-year-old child, and ask him what is true. He tells me because he hasn’t yet been fed all of the dogma that the churches have been feeding us for the last two thousand years.

I’m not saying that everything the world’s religions teach is unfounded and untrue; they do teach a lot of valid truth, most of which teaches us good practical information on how to live a happy and successful life.

But a lot of times it gets twisted and shaped to fit a particular dogma or need and a lot of times the powers in control are serving their own agendas rather than the needs of their congregations.

Each and every one of us, before accepting any belief, or spiritual or moral value, should use our own good judgment and common sense and not go blindly by what someone else has determined to be the truth.

We are not lost sheep, destined to follow whoever or whatever belief comes along, rather we are thinking, reasoning light beings capable of making our own sensible well-thought-out decisions based on our own logic. Each and every soul is connected to the God Source and is capable of determining what its connection is.

We are here to guide and counsel our fellow human beings; we are not here to force or coerce anyone to do anything. If each and every one of us would remember, and practice this, the world would be a lot better place.

It All Makes Sense


Written by: Gary Wonning

My interest had been sparked; I read every book I could find on everything from reincarnation to UFO‘s. I just knew instinctively that everything I was reading was true or had some piece of truth in it. It was the only thing I had ever read that made sense; I had been trying, with little success, to make sense of what I had been taught in Sunday school.

It wasn’t that the church leaders were lying to us; they were just repeating what they had been taught and believed.

But it didn’t matter how I rationalized it or tried to make it fit in, it just didn’t make sense, there had to be more to the story. I had tried many times to just go along, to go with the program and think that these people, because they were supposedly more educated than I, knew more about religion and God than I did.

I was to find over time that education, and, or our station in life really had no bearing on how intelligent we are, each and every one of us has the same opportunity to gain knowledge and sometimes when we become educated by others, we only learn what they teach us and we forget to think for ourselves.

A New World Opens Before Me


Any story should start at the beginning, but since there really is no beginning to life, just a continuum of experiences or lives, I will begin in the year 1982. It was a period in time in which I was mildly dissatisfied with life.

Life had been good, I had all the material things we needed or wanted, a house that was paid for, three lovely daughters, a swimming pool, two car garage, everything but a white picket fence. I had a marriage that wasn’t very happy or fulfilling for either of us, but we stayed together, always hoping it would get better.

Only 38 years old, I had accomplished quite a lot, but I began to wonder what life was “really” all about. I knew it had to be about more than a two car garage and a picket fence, (which I didn’t have). I also began to sense I should be spending more time reading and enjoying life, which for me was extremely hard to do. I always had to be doing something, to be physically active; reading seemed like a total waste of time.

I soon discovered one should never ignore the urgings of the soul, if ignored, they will manifest in some way that is not as pleasant as if one had paid heed and been more attentive.

Worldwide Karma and the Coming New Age


Written by: Gary Wonning

It should only be expected that there would be much turmoil in the present day world. Not only is the present discord caused by various factions in society that think they are entitled to everything under the sun just because they breathe, there is also a more ominous reason for the unrest.

Planet earth is entering a new era of consciousness brought on as we enter the age of Aquarius.

Approximately every two thousand years the earth enters into a new sign of the Zodiac as it makes it journey through the cosmos. The effects of this began being felt on or about 1976 and will continue on for another few years.

We are entering an era when all karma will be resolved and we can once again begin anew our quest for knowledge and enlightenment.

As we enter this new phase, all must deal on one level of consciousness or another the perceived karma we have built up over the last two thousand years.

Just as Jesus was able to absolve all karma when he came two thousand years ago, so will a renewal of his consciousness once again enable us to resolve past karma.

However, this time, we humans need to play a more active role and resolve the issues on our own instead of relying on another soul to do it for us. Jesus showed us the way, it is up to each individual soul to reach a higher level of understanding of his teachings.

We have reached a period in evolution where we are individually able to resolve our karma and move on without the aid of someone else. In fact, in reality, that is the only way karma can ever be released, through our own thought processes. We are our own judge and we must forgive ourselves for supposed transgressions.

A journey of spiritual discovery

The whole world is experiencing karma. Each race, creed, and gender is dealing with issues from the past we may or may not have done. We are all dealing with our karmic past, white, blacks, men, women, that is why there is such turmoil.

It will continue until each and everyone of us has confronted the issues and dealt with them on an individual basis. 

We are living in the last days as foretold in the bible, but it is an individual thing, not a world wide issue, except in the way we individually deal with it. 

Peace will come individually, while one may experience peace and understanding, there will be others who are in turmoil until every soul attains self-realization.

In other words, the world isn’t going to end and we all aren’t going to die. Only our perception of life will change and with it will come a new age of enlightenment.

Guidance from A Past Life Recall


 

photo of the Egyptian sphinx with a sunset in the background

The setting sun behind the Sphinx

Written by: Gary Wonning

Sometimes we need to go back to the past to find our future.

Most of may think we need to be rich and famous to make a difference in the world. This isn’t always the case, sometimes our goal is to help those who are in a better position in life to make the changes. We don’t always choose to be the leaders, many times we chose a lesser role in able to enjoy life more with the things that matter, like family and friends.

We can choose to play a role in others lives, let them do the footwork and we can sit back and relax a little, we don’t always need to spend every lifetime in the forefront of the world’s activities. We all need to learn to function in a supporting role as well as being the leaders.

Willard, who occasionally confides in me relates an interesting past life session he recently had.

He had regressed back to 1865 when he was fifteen years old. It was September 15, and his birth was in 1850 on the 6th of March.

He lived as a fisherman in the tiny village of Palik, Tahiti. He relates that he was also a spiritual teacher and healer. He healed many in his village and received little fanfare as a result.

He changed the lives of many people without preaching from the mountaintops. I think that is what is intended for most of us.

One on one contact is still the best and most efficient method to use to reach the masses. Just like in network marketing, you get one and they get one. soon, everyone is involved.

An Interesting Thought on the Last Days


Art Prints

Written by: Gary Wonning

The Spirit promised that at the end of days everyone will be resurrected  back into their bodies and will hear the purpose of life. It is when souls will be judged according to their deeds.

The  bible  teaches that when Christ returns every soul shall rise from the grave.

I have often read that many believe every soul that has ever incarnated on earth has to return during the twentieth or twenty-first century. Possibly, that day has come, the massive increase in worldwide population could be evidence of it.

The large increase in the population of the earth during this time attests to the fact that may be true. Our earth’s population is definitely been on the rise for the last several hundred years , one reason is that because of advanced  medical  technology  people are leading longer and more productive lives. Many that once died in childbirth or during their early formative years are now living to adulthood and beyond, making it possible for them to learn many more life experiences than they were previously able to .

What if  both trains of thought are correct and are talking about the same event, but from a different angle?

Many religious people, including the Mormons, believe we are in the last days. Several ancient calendars such as the Maya, Hopi, Cherokee and others have recently come to an end. All these signs definitely point to the possibility that we ae indeed in the last days.

Does that mean we are all doomed, or that Christ is finally returning? Maybe or maybe not.

Normally when mankind thinks an event is certain to occur, it never happens. 

Even Nostradamus’s predictions are more accurate in hindsight than foresight, the same can be said of many current sages. The truth is when we become aware of a certain prediction, the mere thought of it changes the outcome.

I don’t believe we are all going to die in the next few years unless death comes to us naturally, like it always has.

Is Christ going to return? I don’t know. What I do know, regardless of whether or not Christ does return, our destiny is determined by what we do, not by what someone else does or doesn’t do.

The setting sun behind the Sphinx

We are entering a new era, an era of enlightenment. The earth is shifting its perspective, and all souls are also changing their line of thought. In the process, we are all becoming more intuitive, combine that with all the new technology now available and soon it will be hard for any of us to hide our true thoughts from others. This will necessitate us changing our way of thinking.

We are in the last days of Pisces and are entering the age of Aquarius, who knows what the future holds. That is for each and every one of us to determine,regardless of who does or doesn’t return to earth.

The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality


Art Prints

I think this pretty much says it all.

Many will dispute this, but the world is a better place because of religion. It gives most people something of value to hang onto, and a leader to look up to. However, in the end, we all must develop our own story, our own spirituality. We each perceive God in a different manner. It is up to each and every one of us to find God or a Supreme Being or Intelligence in our own time and our own way.

Only then can we become the spiritual beings we were meant to be.

A journey of spiritual discovery

A Bashful Country Boy goes on Walkabout.
A Walkabout refers to a rite of passage during which male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the outback for a period as long as six months.
In this practice they would trace the paths, or song paths, that their ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds.
Merriam-Webster, however, identifies the noun as a 1908 coinage referring to “a short period of wandering bush life engaged in by an Australian Aborigine as an occasional interruption of regular work”, with the only mention of “spiritual journey” coming in a usage example from a latter-day travel writer.
To white employers, this urge to depart without notice(and reappear just as suddenly) was seen as something inherent in the Aboriginal nature, but the reasons may be more mundane: workers who wanted or needed to attend a ceremony or visit relatives did not accept employers’ control over such matters (especially since permission was generally hard to get).

The Ascension Process


QUESTION: On days when I meditate I feel good instantly but shortly after I feel very depressed and get choking feelings…why?

ANSWER: When you meditate you are raising your vibration, expanding your consciousness and bringing in more LIGHT from your spiritual being. This light will assist you in dissolving the energetic blocks (karmic miasims) that have accumulated in your chakra system during your current and previous lifetimes where you have been living mostly from your inauthentic egoic self. As these blocks are cleared you may experience pain, sensations of hot and cold, tingling sensations and sometimes odd bodily movements through jerks and spasms.

In addition, when you meditate, you raise your vibration to the higher vibrating dimensions within your self where your being is less dense. These higher dimensions feel good, almost euphoric but when the meditation is over you return to the physical body where you will need time to readjust and ground your energy back into the realm of physicality. This is the process of soul alchemy where we access the healing spiritual energies – through meditation and spiritual practices – that will help us transmute the dense lower vibrational energies held within our chakra systems into higher vibrational frequencies. We are literally turning our lead (karma) into gold (christ consciousness)….it is the alchemy of our souls.

Because humanity is accustomed to instant gratification, we are oftentimes resistant to the process of healing and spiritual purification. We like to pop a pill and make the pain go away but the pill never truly heals the pain – it simply masks the pain for a short while and then returns again. True healing, which is spiritual healing, or the healing of the soul is not a band-aid approach. True healing requires us to get to the root cause of our distortions so they can be unearthed within the depths of our being and brought to the surface for our higher spiritual light and consciousness to shine down on them so they can be cleared from our energy. This process of bringing our energetic blocks forward generates movement in our energy fields and within our physical bodies which can produce ascension symptoms. In addition, as these discordant energies are removed new spiritual life force energies of a higher vibrational frequency are integrated, which will activate our DNA and dormant spiritual glands which can also create unusual symptoms within our beings.

Because humanity had fallen to such a low level of vibration, Mother Earth sent a message throughout the universe asking for help and it was granted. Humanity was given a choice….either awaken and rise in vibration or choose to reincarnate somewhere else. As a “group consciousness” our higher souls chose for us to awaken and we were promised additional help from the spiritual dimensions to assist us with our healing and transformational processes. Because of this, our entire planet and all of humanity who chooses, is going through the quickening where we are transforming our dense carbon based beings into crystalline light beings at an accelerated rate.

Many of us have been disconnected from an abundant flow of spiritual energies from our higher selves for many lifetimes. As we begin to meditate and refocus our attention towards our ascension in consciousness we will begin to reopen our energetic tubes and channels within ourselves that have blocked us from attaining oneness with our higher selves. As we continue to meditate our ascension teams and higher self energies will begin to open up the many closed chambers within our hearts, brains and entire chakra systems that will help us connect more deeply to our higher souls, the Creator Of All That Is, the Earth and all of humanity. However, before we can get to a place of balance and unification within ourselves we will need to go through a profound period of spiritual detox where we purge ourselves of lifetimes of stored pain, trauma and karma. These distorted energies were created over many, many lifetimes and they will not just go away over night. The ascension path is a life style, it is a journey that will require dedication, persistence and sometimes uncomfortable feelings and sensations within our beings to arise. Many people will begin this journey and run into fear because they will not want to deal with the inner distortions that will arise within them. They will return to their old ways allowing themselves to step into denial seeking anything that will give their egos the instant gratification and “feel good” feelings they are accustomed to.

When we face God/ddess, we will have to face our lower selves so we can bring our True Selves, our God Selves forward. The time of duality…dueling with our lower selves and higher selves is coming to an end. We are being asked to raise our vibrational frequencies so we can bring our higher selves down into our bodies so our lower selves and higher selves can become ONE. When this occurs our higher selves will take dominion over our lower selves and our egos will become spiritualized. This is how we heal the planet. When each person spiritualizes their ego and they become ONE with their higher self, humanity as a whole, will make choices from the loving guidance of their God selves where we will create Heaven here on Earth. Everyone needs to do their own personal inner work in order for “mass ascension”  and planetary change to occur. We need to stop looking for instant gratification and we also need to stop expecting our external environments to change without us focusing first on our own internal environment because this too is an egoic tool that will keep us distracted from merging into oneness with our higher selves where true transformation will occur. After all, the external environment we see “out there” is a reflection of the internal environment of the mass consciousness. When we change the mass consciousness….one person at a time, we will change the planet.

If you are experiencing severe ascension symptoms or if you would like to accelerate the clearing of your energies I suggest you contact an energy healer who can help you dislodge stubborn energetic blocks. A Master Pranic Healer or a Master DNA Theta Healer can be an invaluable asset to your clearing process. I also suggest people receive an energetic attunement from a Reiki Master Teacher. An attunement is an initiation into the Reiki energy that will help you expand your central power current and will also help you clean out your chakra system so you can be a channel for the healing universal energy of Reiki. ~Sabrina

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time

Moving into Higher Consciousness


Photography Prints

December 21, 2012, marked the day we moved into a time of accelerated change and transformation. On this day the earth aligned with the galactic heart, or center of the Milky way.

This alignment, foretold by the ancient Maya and other native cultures, such as the Hopi, Cherokee, Hindu and others, activated the earth’s energy portals to all humanity and all living creatures on earth so they could increase the amount of light, higher consciousness, entering into  their beings.

This event only occurs every twenty-six thousand years as the earth completes its cycle through all the signs of the zodiac.

We are also completing a two thousand year cycle in which we are leaving the age of Pisces and entering the age of Aquarius.

All of this means we are leaving the third dimension and elevating to the fourth and fifth dimension.  A time when all souls, if they so choose can evolve to a higher level of thinking.

All the while we are moving from the third dimension of lower vibrations of fear, control, separation, and the human ego,  and move into  a time when we can awaken and release everything that no longer serves our good.

It is time to remember who you are and reconnect with your Christ Consciousness to fully embody all your power. This power can be used for good or evil, it is for each soul  to determine how they use the power.  But with the coming era, it will be easy for us to determine a person’s intent and those who wish us evil will be discovered and exposed.

We are entering a two thousand year cycle of enlightenment, where we can dissolve all our past karma. The Christ Consciousness is emerging into us and informing us that Christ is here to help, but he cannot save us.  We can only save ourselves.

Christ assists us by leading the way and if we follow his instruction, we will be shown how to enter into a new realm of consciousness where we will be more in tune with the higher levels of enlightenment whereby we can advance into the fifth dimension.

Not all will choose to partake in this endeavor, it is all according to the free will of the individual. Some will go, some will stay.

 The author has been a writer/ photographer for over 20 years, specializing in nature, landscapes and studying native cultures. Besides visiting most of the United States, he has traveled to such places as Egypt, the Canary Islands, much of the Caribbean. He has studied  the Mayan Cultures in Central America and the Australian Aboriginal way of life.Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in many different parts of the world!

He has published several books about the various cultures he has observed.
