Many people have noticed that a great tide of change is sweeping across the planet. As in nature, this tide does not follow a linear path. We are experiencing on Earth a massive environmental and human crisis, a reflection of the collective shadow of an unenlightened humanity. What does this mean from an evolutionary perspective? Are we evolving or devolving?

We can focus on the global crisis as the end product of long centuries of human ignorance, arrogance, and greed, the final chapter of an Age of Darkness. We are certainly de-evolving from this perspective, despite all the seeming advances of modern civilization. However, the same global crisis can also be seen as a reflection of a much bigger cyclical process, a pro-evolutionary process directed by a network of vast and benign intelligences whose goal is to create a new species of humanity far beyond our current consciousness and capabilities.

Enlightenment is not merely an individual phenomenon. When one person experiences enlightenment, they not only change themselves, but the world around them as well. Over the past two years, our spiritual course has allowed more than one dozen people living in the United States to experience a phenomenon normally reserved for Masters and savants of the Far East. The hard work, focus, and dedication that is required to evoke this state of consciousness has many rewards. Most notably, it allows the recipient to enter into a state of peace, serenity, and higher consciousness that is not easily put into words.

The energy of enlightenment, also called Deeksha, is an evolutionary cosmic energy whose purpose is to work with the biological intelligence inherent within our DNA in order to create a new species of humanity. It comes from a vast Avataric consciousness that interfaces with the collective consciousness of humanity. The purpose of this consciousness is to activate a possibility that has not existed in the human species before. Enlightenment is not just a spiritual awakening that affects individual human lives, but a genetic and cellular shift that affects our entire species and its role in the planetary and galactic ecosystems.

How does this relate to enlightenment through the deeksha process? Too often when people receive a deeksha, their expectations of enlightenment as being equivalent to states of bliss or cosmic highs get in the way of a fuller experience of ‘oneness’, which by definition transcends the duality between light and dark. The dark night of the soul then follows in order to shatter these expectations and create room for greater expansion and oneness.

Enlightenment brings the energy of the Creator into the body as never before. Under the influence of this light, the body is likely to experience manifestations of accumulated karma. This built up residue creates an aspect of being called the shadow self. The shadow self is home of all our fears, doubts, and anxieties that build up during successive incarnations. The release and destruction of the shadow self is an integral part of the evolutionary process. The shadow self blocks the experience of cosmic union, heart-opening and joy. The process of receiving deeksha accelerates the reception of the energy of the Creator that leads to enlightenment and the dissipation of the shadow self.

After receiving deeksha, one may experience what is called the dark night of the soul. This happens as the shadow self reveals its darkest and most fear-ridden contents to the conscious mind. It is a time of great purging, and the purpose is to take us down to the very pits of hell. From here, suddenly, the light of grace can illuminate all the dark corners and take us equally powerfully to the highest heavens. Having surrendered to death, we discover the fullness of life.

In our fear of the dark side, we imagine that we are somehow ‘losing’ our enlightenment and many people try to hang on to a peak experience. This inevitably plunges them deeper into the pit. If we embrace our pit experience, paradoxically, we soon find our way out into a greater embrace of the unified state where we are attached to neither dark nor light, but experience ourselves beyond either, and therefore as all!

Many people are conditioned by ideas of ‘instant’ enlightenment. Yes, deeksha empowerment greatly accelerates this process, but nevertheless it is a process, and takes time to unfold. Don’t expect to live in states of perpetual bliss, at least not at first, and don’t expect to become an overnight saint. This is not realistic, and is a denial of the dark side. The dark side is not to be feared but acknowledged, and in this acknowledgement a deep healing becomes possible. Some people do however experience long periods of great bliss after the empowerment. This is not common however.

If we are to awaken, and if the Earth is to be healed, these denials have to be brought to light. I believe we are collectively going through a dark night of the planetary soul. All of this needs to be seen and embraced so that we can emerge from the deep hell of our own creation into a heaven on Earth and a higher state of consciousness.

We must get beyond the faddish need for ‘instant enlightenment’ into a deeper spiritual maturity. The energy of Deeksha gradually floods the cells of the body with the energy of the Creator. This energy is not immediately released into the body. At first, it is stored within the brain and the chakras. As the individual processes the energy over a period of months, the energy of Deeksha is released into the body.

Over the last few years, I have received hundreds of request and inquiries from people who have had a variety of genuine spiritual experiences. These experiences often leave the individual shaken to the core. However, one overriding factor remains, they will often want to know three things:

1. What happened to me?

2. What does it mean?

3. Where do I go from here?

In our society, we do not have access to the ancient traditional systems of spiritual awakening. Psychiatrists have replaced shamans and as a result, spiritual experiences are often relegated to the world of psychopathology.

I have received several Major Divine initiations during my life. One of them came at the hands of Sri Matajhi Indira Devi in Pune, India.

“when she laid her hands upon my forehead and the back of my head, I immediately felt a surge of energy that felt like a combination of running water and electricity. I was transfixed both by its power and almost indescribable beauty. She held me firmly in that position for over ten minutes. When she was done, I remained in a state of bliss for two months.”

My second major initiation took place in Mesa Arizona shortly after I finished my residency. During an exceptionally intense visionary experience, I was transported to a cave that was covered with emerald. It was the home of the God Thoth.

“In the center of the chamber, where there was once only an empty space, now stood a large raised stone structure. The material that formed the base looked like obsidian or black marble. The structure had a rectangular platform on its surface. The platform was covered in a substance that was neither silver nor gold, but appeared to contain properties of each. Resting upon the platform, which was perhaps six feet across and more than four feet tall, was the biggest book that I had ever seen. I walked closer to the platform to take a closer look. I used both hands to open the book. As I looked at the first page before me, the entire book came alive. The symbols leaped into my brain like a living fire. The images and shapes moved like living lightning bolts that exploded past my eyes and burned themselves into my mind. I could feel the raw energy move past my optic nerves and settle into my cortical structures. The back of my head began to grow hot and my brain cells throbbed under the pressure. I instinctively touched the letters with my fingertips, and the energy filled my body with twin rivulets of electricity and heat. I heard music such as I had never beheld in my entire life. Entire symphonies rose and fell in my mind, brilliant choral productions, haunting piano melodies, technically perfect violin and vocal pieces played to full completion in seconds and moved me to tears.

I saw paintings of geometric forms that danced and writhed upon writhing canvases. The colors and textures of the pigments planted themselves upon my consciousness and dazzled my inner vision with their radiance and complexity. I touched one of the geometric shapes within one of the paintings, and the image began to sing to me. I did not recognize the language, but the words and music were so beautiful that I thought my heart would burst. The song evoked images of my grandmother’s kiss, hot biscuits baking in the oven, the first snowflake that fell on my cheek, my first conversation with Kathy, the first time I laughed out loud in public, and the first time that I hugged my mother. I drew my hand away from the symbol before the emotions and images overwhelmed me. I turned another page and the energy intensified. I looked down at my body and I saw that it was glowing. My entire being had become infused with a white hot luminosity that coruscated through every cell in my body. I forced myself to turn another page.

A robed figure sat alone shivering in a cave. He was old, perhaps one hundred years by human reckoning. His robe was a beautiful olive green and blue material that looked like silk. He stared at me vacantly and turned slowly to look toward the ceiling of the cave. A vivid white light sprang from his forehead and illuminated the shallow darkness of the dwelling. After a few seconds, the light completely enveloped the old man. His entire body glowed with an exquisite inner luminescence that illuminated the entire cave. He turned his gaze back to me and smiled. I turned another page.

A small group of children stood floating above the abyss of a tall cliff. As they floated, they chanted a prayer that sounded something like Japanese, though it was a dialect that I had never heard before. Their faces beamed as I watched them. One of the children vanished from the group and appeared briefly by my side on the podium. She whispered the words of the prayer into my left ear and vanished as quickly as she appeared. The children continued to float over the cliffs and disappeared into the horizon. Trailing behind them like some submissive manservant, I saw several miles of screeching and crackling thunderstorms. I turned the page again.

An impossibly large figure floated in front of a stadium full of winged beings. The large figure was more than one mile tall. It floated gently on in front of the throng and turned briefly to acknowledge my presence. He then returned to his previous administrations. I understood every word he was saying even though I could not name the language that he spoke. He was lecturing to a group of Senior angels about the mechanics of temporal displacement and the intricacies of manipulating time to favor the presentation of certain desirable events.

The next set of symbols immediately adjacent to this image seemed to have a much lower energy content than the preceding forms. I touched these nine symbols and immediately was transported to a place of incredible power. I tried to focus my Sight, but the intensity of the light was far too strong. It was as though I was trying to stare directly into the heart of the Sun. For a moment, I thought I could make out a few human shapes milling about in the distance. But just as quickly as they appeared, they were gone. The place was permeated by a thunderous booming sound that almost deafened me. I could not reasonably relay in words the intensity of the power that I experienced in this place. I withdrew my fingers from the last of these symbols, closed the Book, and stepped away from the platform. I realized that I had only looked at three pages. Even though I was determined to see more, I could not bring myself to open the Book again.“

These and other experiences greatly quickened the growth of my Divine Spark. The Divine-Spark exists in everyone. This Deeksha empowerment transmits the force of the divine spark of the Creator to the recipient inducing the innate divine spark in the recipient to awaken and enhance its influence over the lower self. The power of this Deeksha divine-spark transmission helps to remove the thick psychic veils that hinder divine awareness. This empowerment helps to subdue the negative influence of the lower self that it has over the conscious mind.
