Diet and Ascension

Many ascended masters will tell you that you need to become a vegetarian before reaching Oneness. Or any type of spiritual ascension.

Some will put other conditions, such as do not kill, do not take poisonous substances such as alcohol, drugs, tobacco, pornography or violent films etc.. And also many will tell you not to fool around if you are in a marriage or long term relationship.

Is this true? Will you not reach enlightenment and Ascension to Oneness if you carry on eating steak, drinking wine and sleeping with your neighbor's spouse?

Well, the moral conditions are there due to our personal sense of right and wrong. If we do wrong, we feel guilty, if we feel guilty we are not in a place of core center. And if we hurt others, then we will not feel good about it. Lying is actually very destroying to the lair's soul. Nothing good ever comes of it. Being completely and utterly true to yourself is always the best option.

Of course, if you already were unfaithful, being true to yourself doesn't mean running to your spouse and spilling the beans. Unless they ask you directly, don't hurt them. Of course if they ask you, then tell them the truth.

Eating meat is actually not necessary. It does have a ton of toxins and does keep you down. So does a lot of refined sugar for that matter. As well as garlic and onion.

This does not mean you cannot get there if you carry on eating all these things. It does mean your journey will be long and arduous. More than if you got rid of toxins of mind and body.

At a certain point you will find that all these things are irrelevant. Eating habits, moral habits, toxins, they can all be bypassed. But it takes a very strong spirit.

Personally speaking, I am not that strong. I had to detoxify and stop eating onion and garlic, stop drinking alcohol, cut down on sugar, caffeine and chocolate.

Now, this is all to do with the body. The body houses our spirit and our ego is very close to it. The fastest and best way the ego has to put a stop to, what it thinks, is its retirement, is to make the body sick.

At the end of the day, to protect our body and make our journey a safe and fast one, it is recommendable to delete toxins of all kinds from our environment.

Eating fresh fruits, vegetables, milk products and no eggs or meats or toxins does make your Ascension work easier. But that is all it does.

All this talk about how killing animals to eat them adds to your karma and how alcohol is the Devil's drink are simply ways to get the message across.

Yes, a lion does eat other animals, but you won't find a lion meditating to achieve enlightenment and ascension ;)

In short, yeah, all these ascended masters are onto something here.

If you do decide to detoxify, the rate you do it at is entirely up to you. I cannot recommend you do it all at once because most of us would suffer if we did that. If you are totally decided on this, then go ahead and do it. Otherwise take baby steps. Cut one item per week and give yourself six months to see if it makes any difference to you.

The toxins that are bad for me are the following and in order of worse to not so bad:

Refined sugar
Chocolate (probably due to all that refined sugar in it)

Go ahead and try them too. I found these because the more ascension work I did, the more these substances made me feel really, really sick.

Sickness and Ascension

Does being in an ascended state mean your body will never get sick again?

The body will continue to go through sickness and death whether you are in a state of ascension or not.

It is much easier to cope with physical sickness when you are in an ascended state. This is because the vibrational energy you are functioning with is much higher, which means wholeness, healing, is achieved much quicker at a physical level.

Ascended beings still get sick and die. It is part of life on Earth.

It is also true that people who function in an ascended state very rarely get sick. And when they do, it is mild and passes quickly.

I get sick when I experience a block in energy. The blocks inevitably come due to ego issues that I have not addressed. So, for example, if I give myself a hard time because of a session not going as well as I intended, or because I don't like a certain person in my life, or because I am afraid of doing something, this will often turn into a physical condition very quickly. It is, for me, a great alarm system. If I ignore the problem I get very sick very quickly. If I address it, I stay healthy. Easy.

Do I suffer? NO.
Do I feel pain? YES.

When the sickness is painful it is extremely difficult to tap into one's core, and BE in present time, feeling the joy and ecstasy that that state is. It takes a lot of doing. However, it is precisely the moving away from that core that brings the sickness up in the first place. Therefore it is very important to get back to it :)

What is the meaning of life?


We came here, to Earth, to experience. Whether we are a diamond, crystal, indigo, rainbow, or Earthly child, whether we are enlightened, materialistic, dense, light, can see angels or nothing at all. We are here to EXPERIENCE.

What we came here to experience is ourselves, complete, fully, and integral. All of ourselves, which includes everything we consider part of us. Whether this includes just our bodies, our bodies, minds, spirits, or includes our surroundings, our spiritual guides, our earthly families and friends, our interests. Whatever it is, if it comes into our awareness, then we are here to experience just that.

If you came to Earth with a huge sense of mission, then you are here with a mission.

Remember though, and be warned, the thing about missions is that most of them by default will come with sides. Us and Them, Right or Wrong, Beautiful and Ugly, Joy and Suffering.

Think about it. Are you here to take sides? Be honest.

By taking sides you are adding to duality and all that duality entails.

Of course there is a mission that, in my humble opinion, surpasses all missions. That is the mission to EXPERIENCE LIFE NOW. BE in total present time and fully experience every second that you spend on Earth.

Non Duality and Oneness

What is the difference between "non duality" and "oneness"?

These two terms are very often used interchangeably. However, they are not at all the same.

Non duality actually means "not two". Oneness means "One"

To be not two means that the person has reached a level of awareness where they are no longer split into two. This could mean, "good and bad", "negative and positive", "light and dark", "divine and earthly", "right and wrong", and many other ways we tend to split ourselves into two sides.

Oneness means we are ALL. We are complete, whole, integrated. No sides. Not even a concept of sides.

Permanency of Ascension

Once you reach the state of Ascension where you are happy to stay at, and you know it is that space/time/awareness/beingness, that you want to stay at, you will either stay there permanently or come crashing down to your old state of space/time/awareness/beingness and have to work your way back to your state of Ascension again several times.

This second scenario is the most common in our Western society, and most of all in those of us who have very busy and challenging lives.
For us, the periods of Ascension will last longer each time, and the periods of ego will get shorter, although sometimes more intense.
Today, for example, I had my 2 year old in high intensity. That means a day when he wants mommy all the time, screams at the thought of a nap and won't play nice in general. This is a normal state for a 2 year old to be in every few days.

Apart from my two year old's intense company, someone in the house was watching the television at top volume, and others were generally doing things that rub me the wrong way.

I decided that the best solution was to go to my private club, leave my toddler in the supervised playroom while I got some work done. I love doing that, it gives me a break from toddlerhood, they have nice herbal teas and cookies and a nice quietish launge with wifi.

I got there as they were taking the tea and cookies away. They tell me that the Board had ruled that tea and cookies had to be taken away at 4pm... ok... we are in America so perhaps they don't know that 4-5 pm IS TEA TIME. Also, 4pm is when the supervised playroom opens, which means, whoever thought of closing tea and cookies down at 4pm did not think mothers, and the occasional father, who uses the service was worthy of tea and cookies.

I wish I could tell you that I stayed centered, that everything washed over me like it does when one is in a centered and awakened state.


You see, if we lived in a mountain top, with local villagers providing for our daily food, and the only thing we had to do was meditate all day, then sure, our state of Ascension would be a permanent fixture very quickly.

However, we live in a very busy, stimulating and highly challenging world. I feel it, and I have a large house, food, private club, nice car, stable marriage, happy children, great friends and a huge amount of skills to pull from.

Saying all that, it is also true that we can achieve a state of permanent Ascension, even among the most challenging incidents and lives. So how does this happen?

It happens by choice and with focused intention. We do have to find a time, each day, when we can meditate at least an hour. I find that 5am to 6am works great, but it is a huge challenge for me to get up at that time of the morning. My sleep is very important to me. If I don't get enough hours sleep, I can't really function during the day.

As a busy mom, I also find that when I do get to sit quietly for an hour somewhere during the day, I fall asleep with exhaustion.

So what's to do? We have to go straight to the most difficult meditation, to center in the middle of chaos.

The way we can achieve this is by removing all stimulants from our bodies. This means refined sugars, caffeine, excessive carbs, onions, garlic and anything else that “picks us up”.
Not an easy thing to do.

A stimulant free body is a body that will need rest at key times during the day and a good sleep period during the night.

Once the stimulants are removed, your attempts at meditating during the rush hour traffic, among screaming kids, while your spouse is having a bad day, and when you have emotional upsets, will be much more effective.

One of the funniest things about the whole centering experience in our busy western lives, is that for hundreds of years monks, nuns and other people who wanted to get closer to God, have been creating artificial challenges to learn how to get centered while in chaos or pain. Some would take vows of silence, others would go and meditate naked in the snow, and other such extreme measures. They would need these artificially created challenges because most religious temples would not allow married people with children to join their ranks.

So we really have it quite good :)

In the past I would probably not seen past my upset. But even in the middle of it, my center was complete, I looked at the situation and "chose" to get upset. Why? To experience.

Ascension and Death

Death is painful for those of us left behind.

A person facing death can be in various states from extreme terror to ecstasy. But at the end of the day, our witnessing their state is going to end soon. For us, however, it is felt as a great and painful loss.

The pain of the loss can be so big we take years to get over it, if ever.

Often, and particularly with those we were very close to, we have a sense of continuity, we can feel the person's energy around us even after their body is gone. But it is simply not the same. We cannot touch them, hear them, share with them, hug or kiss them. All their items, their property, is now left behind and no longer have any meaning, except perhaps the residual energy from the person.

Death is such a loss in our society that we don't talk about it, we don't look at it, we don't even have the opportunity to process it with friends and relatives because they are also too busy repressing the pain of loss they feel themselves.

So how come death is such an important part of Ascension? Well, it is inevitable that we will die and it is inevitable that everyone we know and love will also die. Who goes first? No one knows.

Once in the state of Ascension, you will not suffer because of your own death. You will embrace it with as much gusto as you do life; seeing it as another adventure, an adventure as exciting as each day is in living.

You will, however, feel the pain of others dying. It is very likely that you will soon regain contact with those people who have passed away, unless they were in a very dark space when they died. The latter take longer to be aware enough to be able to contact the living.

Can someone Ascend after death?

Ascension and Groups

It was Jesus that was reported to have said something in the nature of "For where two or three are come together in my name, there am I among them."

It is no secret, although to me it is a real mystery, that when two or more people of a high vibrational nature meet, their ability to affect their own work, lives, environment or visions, is much more effective than when only one person is there. It is almost as though by joining with others, the power generated is greater than the sum of the total individual powers.

For me this is annoying to say the least. This is because I do not work well with others. I don't like to be in groups and can't tolerate crowds very well.

However, when I am with a few people, one or two more, to do a very specific session, it is a fantastic experience.

Even in my personal work, that of channeling information and writing it down afterward, I am much more effective when there is someone there asking me questions or receiving divine love.

So groups are indeed very useful. Are they necessary? Not really. We can do the work on our own, as many, MANY, solitary workers will attest. But it is different. It could be said to be more effort involved at some levels and less in others.

To work in a group there needs to be a group agreement. It is also the nature of human groups to have a leader. Once these are sorted, working in a group can be very satisfactory.

For the group to work, the members of the group need to connect at a heart level to have the greatest effect. Not problem level, or issue level, or mission level, but a HEART level. This means, from a level of unconditional love and open hearts.

I work with people all the time, both on the phone and in person. The work is very specific, but without that love connection, it would be useless to say the least.

Occasionally I will work with a person who really has no business doing ascension work with me. Not because they are "not worthy", but because they have no interest in staying in an ascended state. They will arrive through curiosity, or because his or her best friend had a session and he or she wants to get one too as the latest fad.
These are the hardest ones to work with because they are not in the space from a heart centered perspective. It will take lots of sessions to get them to see Oneness even, let alone experience it. Then they go away and ask for advice on their "path" to Oneness.
When this happens, it is difficult not to roll my eyes and sigh. It could be frustrating too, and there was a time when I would have done all these things. Yet the work stands. It is not a coincidence that they crossed my path. It is true that with the two of us working together at that particular time/space, they did indeed experienced the state of Oneness. Whatever happened to them afterward is their choice, but at least the seed remains. One day, perhaps in this lifetime, or maybe the next, that seed will sprout. When that day arrives, it will become clear that it was not I who planted that seed, but themselves... out of all the "wrong" reasons.

So even in a group, whether small or large, that has only you as the person with the open heart and flow of unconditional love, the work you are there to do can get done.

However, in a group where a lot of the members are negative and have low vibrational perspectives, look for the nearest exit sign and run out of there as fast as you can. This is because the opposite is also true. A group of negative individuals is more powerful in their negativity than the sum of their individual negativity.
