DimensionsA lot of material has been channeled in the new-age community about the different dimensions and ascension.

But what are these dimensions?

The Earth has multiple dimensions, which remain invisible until you are vibrating at the same frequency as that particular dimension.

Dimensions aren’t so much a place, but a state of being and vibration.

The earth is still vibrating physically in the 3rd dimension, but its ethereal body is vibrating in the 4th dimension. Eventually the physical will merge with the spiritual and become a 4th dimension body and so on, until the earth becomes a 5th dimensional planet.

NamasteI send a lot of email in my day to day, be they personal or promotional for Explore Meditation.

As a creative spirit I get bored easily when stuck in a pattern – so when it comes to the sign off I always try to be different.

All the best, Kindest regards, At your service, In Love and Light, Till then then…

But I was always intrigued by the one I was never game to use…

What is Spiritual GrowthHello I am Maya, and today I am going to share with you my view on Spiritual Growth.

Understand that this definition will differ between people, according to their experiences, beliefs and personality characteristics.

Just like buying a t-shirt or pair of jeans – one size definitely does not fit all, thus I can only share my view…

The word spiritual alludes to that something within us which is above and beyond that of our physical reality.

Spiritual growth then is the path we walk to accomplish a greater awareness and alignment to this inner-force.

What is ToleranceI want to tell you exactly what’s going on with me while being as vague as possible.

It’s a bit of a challenge but I’m up for it if you are. Let’s Go!

So … There’s a swimming pool in my imagination

And something happened to me today that made me realize something very important.

When I go for a swim, I like to start by doing a big bomb in the deep-end.

I like that the reflective serenity is interrupted by an explosion of water force and bubbles.

Ka-Boom! “World … Nigel Is Now Having A Swim!” That’s just how I roll.

Dream SymbolsA guest post by Karen Ellyard.
I would like to talk to you about symbols in your dreams.

One thing we need to understand about symbols is they can mean different things, depending on the person, where they see it or how it was used.

Having said that – here are a few starting points that we can ponder.

Spiritual PathWas there a point in your life where you made the conscious decision to be more spiritual, or were you wandering aimlessly, only to look up and realize that you were on a spiritual path?

Me? I just took one step at a time and ended up right where I am now. There was no singular life-changing awakening or majestic realization heralded by Angels.

Life LessonsYou may have heard the saying that ‘life is a game’ – and come to realize that everyone plays a different role in the drama of life.

While we are in the game, it feels very real and sometimes hard to detach ourselves from it emotionally.

Throughout our sojourns as a spirit pretending to be human, we experience many roles. We do this to expand our awareness and experience as a spirit and to evolve.

Meditation can be a great tool to learn to silence one’s mind to hear the soft whispers of spirit. Spirit is always there to help guide us in our life, but it is often subtle and easy to ignore.

Balanced LifeA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

How does one become or remain balanced in an imbalanced world?

With so much negativity and suffering happening in the world, it can be a challenge not to get drawn in and affected by it. You only have to switch on the TV or listen to the radio to hear about all the negativity and bad things happening in the world. Mainstream news is usually roughly 90% negative and 10% positive, which is very unbalanced reporting.

It also isn’t an accurate reflection of the majority of humanity; most people are inherently good.

Spiritual GrowthMountains are symbolic in life of overcoming one’s challenges – and rising to the top and succeeding.

We all have different challenges in life to overcome that we have chosen from a spiritual level. As we overcome a challenge, we don’t have to address it again, and we can move onto bigger and better things.

This is also the nature of ascension.

Like a mountain, the journey becomes steeper and more challenging the higher you climb; but the rewards are also greater.

Spirituality and RealityPlease enjoy this guest post by Sophia Gubb.

I’ve been on a spiritual path for several years now. It was a rocky road.

At about eighteen, I had a breakthrough. After 5 years of struggling to find an answer to my ongoing existential crisis, I realised that I had been wrong about everything.

I mean everything. I mean, the Universe.

On a Spiritual PathA guess post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to talk to you about your spiritual path. When I am doing a psychic reading I am very often asked “Am I on the right path?” or “How do I know if I am on the right path?”

It seems a lot of people think that to be on the right path they need to be doing some world shattering, huge humanitarian work.

I find that if people are questioning then this in itself is a great sign. When we get lost we often stop questioning and just get pushed along with the flow. Not happy but not questioning why.

Love Based DecisionsThe end of each year is generally a time for new beginnings. We evaluate our achievements, and plan a path to help move us forward.

But most people don’t strive for new beginnings – because the unknown is scary.

Even though people may not like where they are at the moment (job, relationship, anything), it’s familiar, comfortable, predictable and requires minimal effort.

It is often avoidance (not being honest with ourselves) and resistance (too hard to change – which is based on fear) that stops us.

Spiritual AscensionAscension is a gradual process of becoming enlightened while walking around as a human being.

It is a process of changing from a disconnected human being, to a connected human being, connected to one’s higher self and the realm of spirit. During ascension spirit begins to merge with matter over a period of time, parts of our soul/higher self begin to merge with our body/mind/spirit.

While there are some similarities of ascension with everyone, it is also a very unique and personal experience. After all, we are all so unique and special in our own way.

EmpathEmpaths are affected by others’ energies, emotions and often physical pains.

They can often know the intentions of people and they hear the heart as they can feel what the other people feel. They don’t necessarily read the future but they can read people.

‘Cool’, you might think – but if left unprotected empaths can often suffer from constant fatigue, headaches and unexplained aches and pains.

Empaths feel more comfortable in the spiritual word and often struggle here on the Earth plane.

DestinyDestiny – Kristina Gailiute interviews Brad Austen

Q – What guides our destiny?

A – It is our soul that ultimately guides our destiny, but also our ego personality and free-will choices play a part in our life. For many of us, our soul is only a faint whisper, unless we learn to quiet our minds and go within.

One way of doing this is through meditation.

We also have a team of spirit guides that guide us on our journey in life. We have free will, which is a gift, but there are universal laws such as cause and effect that allow us to experience the results from our choices and actions. We can then reflect on the choices we have made. If we aren’t happy with the outcome we can strive to make wiser choices in the future.

Our Earthly ExistanceI receive lots of comments on Explore Meditation. Most are very supportive or thankful, and then there are some that offer true insight.

In reference to the post I wrote called “Contacting My Dead Friend“, where I filmed a clairvoyant give me a reading on the anniversary of my friends death, I received a comment from ‘Jacqui’ which I believe sums up a concept very beautifully. I emailed Jacqui to ask permission to post it (offering her a bio or return link), and all she said was “Yes, of course you can post it as an individual post, that is a kind gesture, and I thank you for it. In love and light, Jacqui.”  So… here it is!

Living With AbundanceI would like to share with you my thoughts on gratitude and how powerful this can be in your life.

Gratitude is a key factor in attracting abundance and happiness into your life.

When we come from a place of sincere gratitude our energy is one of acceptance and harmony.

This energy attracts positive additional energies to us.

Energy with IntentEnergy is contagious. We see and feel this all of the time.

For example, you just have to have one person gossiping or putting someone down in the workplace and the negative energy begins to filter into the environment – Or if you are in a room full of babies, one can start to cry and before you know it they are all crying.

The good news is it is up to us to decide what form of energy we wish to spread.

Gift of LifeI would like to remind you of something I often remind myself of.

Life may not be wrapped in bows, and it’s not always pretty … but it is still a gift.

We need to be willing to take delight in the unwrapping each day and taking pleasure at each stage of the unwrapping until we get to the center.

The core, the power of the gift of life, is the portion that is ourselves.

If we have a belief that life is hard or a trial then every step of it will be.

In the end it is up to us to either see the gift or see a problem.
