Connecting Above to Below

Connecting Above to Below

As we approach the Summer Solstice, there have been many strings pulled in the Density from the Void. The Council of the Light have been busy.

There’s a new TV channel about to launch with a focus on metaphysics called Ethereal.tv. My great friend, Louisa Tanner Munson, was initially invited to it, along with Carl Munson, her erudite husband and fabulous show host. They both recommended me to the channel’s progenitors, Will Rodriquez and Karen Endsley. 

A brief chat was all that was needed for them to want me to launch a show and for me to go for it. The title they suggested was fab, It’s Not Bonkers, but after finding myself procrastinating about it, I realised that it is to be called soulwaves : connecting above to below.

It’s going to be an exploration of all things metaphysical with a whole raft of guests helping me make the esoteric into the exoteric – and launching later this moonth.

It’s quite an undertaking as I will be producing a one hour show every week but it’s such an opportunity to get even more global reach than I am already getting through Insight Timer. I was though feeling a new challenge was needed as I have been far too complacent and comfortable with my creative output.

That said, I am thrilled to have published three new courses on Insight Timer on the Flavours of Thought in the last three moonths alone.

In addition, from June onwards, I am also starting to write, record and publish a series of follow on courses on the Recipes for Fresh Thinking – which are essentially modern day spells. This will lead into another series of courses inspired by the Minor Arcana and based on my book on the subject, Planes of Being.

The ability to cross-fertilise my Ethereal shows with Insight Timer materials is immense as the shows can feature sample meditations and go into more depth as there is no restriction on imagery and of course video content. This means my Magnum Opus can truly be shared with the world now.

You’ll find links to the Flavours of Thought courses below … and I’ll post shows as they go live on Ethereal on my front page.

Flavours of Thought

This first course explores thought forms that emanate from outside of our neurology. These are the stuff of light bulb moments and the source and fuel for our creativity. If you have ever had an idea ‘off the top’ of your head, you will have heard a whisper already.

Flavours Of Thought #2

This second course in the series explores thought forms that percolate up from our lower mind centres. Pay attention to them and you will never put a foot out of kilter. Ignore them and you may end up pushing water uphill.

Insertions 7-12

This third course explores thought forms that are generated in our brain that are seeded from ethereal whisper and unconscious murmurs. You will also get a sample taster of a Recipe for Fresh Thinking.

Just for Today Speech bubbleSeven years ago, in May 2017, I was approached by Siri Opli who asked if I would like my daily Just for Today memes to be illustrated. I had no reason to say no so we embarked on a journey with no plan to reach any destination but just to enjoy the ride.

We flipped the order of creation over the years. Sometimes Siri would send me art and I would write having been inspired by it. Other times, I would write the words and Siri would be inspired to draw or paint accordingly.

Last month, the scheduling software I was using to batch schedule JFTs stopped posting to Facebook Groups, a change at Meta’s end apparently, so this month we are changing the way we are doing them.

We will still record Just for Today themed meditations – here’s one recent one for example. This one incidentally was one that I did following a reading from a medium who suggested I create content for younger people, perhaps with ADHD and autism.

Siri will be now be collating and curating old and new groups of illustrated memes on the Deckible app as card decks – here’s an example

Now there is a modest charge for each deck but Siri would love your support and the big advantage is to get all the associated JFTs in one place – many with the associated meditation. Better still is the ability to be able to journal against each card and even do spreads of cards.

So I throw the gauntlet down to any reader of this blog to stop doing something, out of habit, that no longer serves. This allows something else you did not expect to pop along.

Now this has already happened to me and I hope to be able to announce it after the next orbit of the moon.

I leave you with one of the first ever illustrations that Siri did – it is still our favourite – as well as the meditation it inspired.

Soulwaves PlaylistThis moonth, the plan that emerged at the start of the year – after the much needed stock-taking hiatus – is starting to unfold.

The serialisation of Soulwaves is nearing the half way point and it’s a real pleasure for me to listen to something I wrote nearly five years ago. It’s a double pleasure to merge the audiobook with the albums of ambient music that it inspired. The few that listen to it seem to like it and I have now created a playlist to make all the parts easier to find. All in all, it’s one component of my creation of legacy of content in one place.

Listen to the serialisation here …

While the Soulwaves project is massive in scope – especially if it turns out to be prophetically even part-true, the Big Project though is the creation of my Magnum Opus – listen to the background to it here …


Flavours of ThoughtThe first part is already available as a course on Insight Timer and I plan to publish a course a month, probably up to the end of 2025.

Our home has really come together – just waiting for the temperature to rise so the rendering can be applied and for our solar installer to add the panels to get our energy usage to net zero. We are close too to having our rainwater harvesting system working which will probably augur months with no rain.

We’ve been busy too in the DIY department and have created a larder which we are quite proud of – in the same style as the walk-in wardrobe I build a couple of months back. The acoustic panels are not only stylish but also wonderfully deaden the room spaces.

All in all, it feels great to be Springing Forwards

Living TimefullyOn the 27th February, which is a year to the day since we moved out for our house refurb to proceed, my audio studio was back in operation … and I am back on a roll.

What’s more, on the 28th February, the workmen left site and the drilling and banging stopped, the skip has gone and we can now park in our own drive. Thankfully we have very forgiving and generous neighbours!

Before the 27th, I’d already been busy but mainly remastering existing materials. I am aiming to migrate my esoteric archive of materials over to Insight Timer (whilst also paralleling them up on Soundwise for backup reasons).

The Keys to OverstandingSo on Insight Timer, you will find three new courses :

Living Timefully

Purposeful Living

Keys to Overstanding

– and very shortly, I’ll be publishing another course called Becoming a Channel.

I also squeezed in recording a brand new meditation specifically written for the leap year and published on the 29th Feb called Take a Leap (geddit) and you will also find a Norwegian version from the uber-talented Siri Opli.

Take a Leap

Siri’s version : Gjørrå et sprang

Soulwaves : A Future History : Insight Timer PlaylistI am also three parts (of ten) into the serialisation of my novel Soulwaves : A Future History : which you can find under this new playlist

But the biggest momentum, causing the ball to pick up speed, is the creation of a series of new courses based on my two books, Flavours of Thought and Planes of Being.

They came out when audiobooks weren’t much of a thing, Flavours being published in 2009 and Planes in 2012. They are contemporisations of the Major and Minor Arcana.

So this year, I am creating two three part courses, that’s six in total on the Flavours of Thought and the Recipes of Fresh Thinking. Then I will create two courses from Planes of Being.

Listen to this recent IT Live for an overview and more background …

… it is now also available on Insight Timer

This will make a huge archive of my legacy content to the millions of meditators on Insight Timer.

My hope is that by the end of this year, Insight Timer will allow us to upload other assets, by way of PDF and images, to courses on the app. Then, in 2025, I will be able to follow on by publishing the Tree and Cube of Overstanding materials.

Now all of this activity has caused me to think. When this is all done, my work is really done.

What next I ask myself?

Let’s hope the ball keeps rolling along eh?

New Auspices

New Auspices

Auspices DefinitionSo at the end of February 2023 last year, we moved out of our house ahead of a major renovation. We’ve been back in from just before Xmas but largely ‘camping’ on one floor. By the end of February this year though, virtually all the works will be complete and normality can resume but under new auspices.

This year has already started with everything being taken up a gear or three.

I’ve given my meditations and ambience a push in a new direction with more a series of meditative enquiries and a more compositional and layered approach to music. For examples, listen to …

What’s On Your Mind? (enquiry)

Flow and Ebb (ambient)

Riding Your Thought Stream (enquiry)

The serialisation of Soulwaves : A Future History is on track, with two parts already available via IT Premium. By October this year, I aim for all 10 parts (each consisting of 10 chapters) to be live.

There’s also a new course published this month called the Keys to Overstanding – it will be first of many where I share esoteric wisdom from my ‘magnum opus’ The Book of Overstanding.

I’ve also completed the first of a series of interviews with like minded souls with a wonderful conversation with the uber-talented musician, singer, actress and disrupter, Hannah Reimann.

… and it’s only week 1 of February !!

But what off these new auspices?

Well for quite a while now, I have used the Twelve Councillors of the Light as my muse. They ‘helped’ me write Soulwaves and Insertions, as well as the all meditations and music that accompanied them.

Last year, I was ‘introduced’ to a different set of intelligences called The Four … you can listen to a podcast about them below …

Now, I will admit that I don’t know if the Council and The Four are real or imaginary. What I can report is that, if I imagine that they are real, all sorts of wondrous magic pops along at the most perfect times.
