The Keys to Wisdom

The Keys to Wisdom

Key to the Wisdom of AgesSo I am just embarking on moonth 4 of what I knew would be a 24 moonth project. Today sees the publication of more materials for those walking the Path To Overstanding with me.

The whole project is mind mapped out so I can ‘see’ all the elements of the Path. It does indeed integrate many areas of my knowledge and wisdom. It is however much bigger than that as many of the individual components only get revealed to me on a ‘moonth by moonth’ basis.

To reiterate, and as shown in the diagram above, on each New Moon, I publish a thought piece about the Path along with some Overtasking. Each 1st quarter sees the release of one of 23 meditations on the keys of the Major Arcana, inspired by the augmented keys from the Tarot of Overstanding. On each Full Moon, I release an ambient track similarly inspired from my third album, Arcanum. Then, on the 3rd quarter, I share a conversation with a Like Mind to give us a different perspective and to widen our understanding of the cosmos. These I call Uberstanding.

A daunting project you might think. Well firstly, with the Moon, as my time piece, I have not missed a publication date yet. I also kept this up during 2021 with a similarly structured 13 moonth project, namely Soulwaves : Insertions. Secondly, I have a guide to help me show the way in the Earth Plane and who knows what guidance from the Council of the Light in The Void.

The Key to the Wisdom of Ages, by Paul Foster Case, provides the seed for the materials, meditations and music. I must have read it over 50 times but I am now back to it with fresh eyes. I am careful not just to paraphrase its content but to use it as seeds from which I extrapolate. That is the whole point of overstanding anything after all.

The book is also magical and I am sure new things appear that I have not seen before on each reading. For example, Foster Case mentions the musical key for each of the Arcana. This is information I previously have skimmed but not am now utilising for the creation of the ambient album. Each track starts in the relevant key and ends in the key of the next Arcana. I will only know if this works at the end but it sounds like a reasonable premise.

 

From tiny points of guidance, a whole meta-structure appears.

As the Tarot evolves, we evolve.

As Above, so Below.

I understand that it can be tricky to get your head around what is esoteric – it is unknowable after all.

So, if you’d like to have a sneak peek at the wonders on offer along The Path To Overstanding, you can listen to the first Soundcast, Flavours of Thought, completely for free.

It contains 33 short tracks which will change the way you think about your thoughts, forever!

The Path is Open

The Path is Open

Sometimes when you start a project, you may harbour some uncertainties. We might think we are fooling ourselves or that we may have taken too much on board.

Setting my stall out to deliver a whole course in esoteric unfoldment over a 24 moonth period, in a time of global uncertainty, falls into that category.

The only thing is that I am entering my fourth moonth of content generation and it’s going swimmingly. The technical platform is good (I did test that for a year). I have a mind map that encapsulates all the content and literally ‘maps out’ The Path To Overstanding. The production of the complementary deck of Tarot Cards is proceeding, at its own pace, in parallel.

What is most encouraging though is that I am always asking for signs by way of confirmation. The biggest sign we get is resistance which tends to block our creative flow. We become a busy fool, getting on with other irrelevances first. This isn’t happening.

The other blockage is that people aren’t buying into the material. This too is not the case as there’s a steady flow of subscribers. As you walk down the path with me, you can ask questions of me on the Soundwise app, on a track by track basis, and also interact with other like minded souls.

Up to now, I’ve not marketed the Path officially. Partly this is because I wanted to ensure I could deliver the quality and quantities of materials I had planned. It looks like I can.

As a result, the chocks are coming off and the Path is well and truly open.

Telling It Like It Is

Telling It Like It Is

When you start any year, you have some plans but also are open for the unplanned to rock up too, as it tends to do.

So this year saw an unplanned and very successful and pleasant house move. It also augured in the fixing of a knee that had be painful for far too long.

From a creativity perspective, the month of December sees the Soulwaves : Insertions project coming to successful conclusion. The 12th ambient track is published today and the 12th Meditation on the Numbers in the can and scheduled for publication on the Full Moon. Likewise the 12th Lecture on the Numbers scheduled to be broadcast live on the Winter Solstice on the 21st December.

I am doubly proud that I’ve not missed a single delivery date and at the quality of the output, which has surprised even me. The former is a testament to using cosmic timing for project planning and the latter a result of tuning into the Council of the Light for guidance and support.

Halfway through the year, it looked like 2022 was to be the year of The Duadex and the third part of the Soulwaves Anthology. As mentioned in last moonth’s blog, there’s been a change of plan. It might happen but something else has popped in, even before the next orbit of the Sun has started.

Overstanding Mastery It appears that 2022 is the year of the Tarot of Overstanding. This involves the writing and publishing of a book and production of a unique deck of Tarot cards. Both the Major and Minor Arcana will expand and evolve, as will all those who use them.

The book will be the third in another trilogy that I started writing over a decade ago, with the publication of Flavours of Thought and Planes of Being. With those two books, I only told part of the story. Perhaps the world wasn’t ready then. Or maybe I simply wasn’t ready.

With the third book, nothing will be held back. The esoteric knowledge of which I have been blessed and graced with will be made exoteric. It will also be augmented by a series of 23 ambient tracks to open your mind and 23 guided meditations to open your heart. There’s a sneak preview of one that accompanies the Minor Arcana below. The other four are available now in the Just for Each Day Soundcast.

Walking Well

For as long as I can remember, I have had a painful right knee. I’ve had various treatments and fixes over the years but nothing has really worked and now I am down to bone on bone. Even if you aren’t medically trained, I think you can see the problem in the banner above – the knee on the left is my right knee.

By the time this auspicious New Moon of the 6th October 2021, I will have one of these implants inserted – an insertion of a different sort perhaps.

So why share it in this blog? Well, my first ever overnight in a hospital bed is a reminder of my mortality but it also represents a turning point. I have literally limped along for most of my life and achieved a fair amount. I am wondering where I might go once I can walk well again for the first time since my childhood.

Naturally, the operation is the just first step. There will be a recovery and recuperation period with physio. Like all these life resets though, there is an opportunity to get other parts of the house in order.

One of these has been inspired by an amazing happenstance. When I found the extraordinary surgeon and biomedical engineer who can perform this procedure on my knee, Professor David Barrett, I also chanced upon his ex-surgical practitioner, Mery Zanutto. I love it when adversity leads to fantabulous serendipity.

Apart from knowing lots about knees, and confirming this procedure is the right one for me, Mery is one of life’s polymaths with many strings to her bow, see www.meryzanutto.com

And I am so proud Mery has already added another string to that bow, she is now a meditation guide on Insight Timer and her first track is entitled Walking Well – listen to it and others here www.insighttimer.com/meryzanutto

Don’t you just love it when that happens? What goes around so comes around.

Last Moonth’s Output

So the usual Insertions ambient track, meditation and lecture are all available via Soundwise. A whole gamut of stuff has appeared on Insight Timer, too much to list but you can find it all here.

What I am really excited and chuffed about though is formalising my offer that many meditation guides have adopted and that’s using my ambient music as backgrounds to their meditations.

So there’s a new Soundcast that I will add to monthly where you can sample them and when you subscribe, you’ll get a link to a page with the direct download page.

Note that there is a small annual subscription but if you subscribe to the whole package, it’s included.

Siri Minor ArcanaNext Moonth’s Output

As I am going ‘under the knife’, I’ve got the whole of October’s Soundwise content recorded and scheduled for publication. I have to tell you that I have taken the brakes off and I am revealing alchemical magic that even surprises me. Hold on to your hats.

I am also really thankful to Siri Opli who is posting the daily Just for Today’s. We are creating a Minor Arcana deck with two differences – 15 cards per suit and five suits no less. This time the tables are turned as I have written them already and Siri uses the words to inspire her art.

While all this is going on, I’ve paused the writing of the Duadex for a while – listen here for why.

Soulwaves Insertions Meditations and MusicHalfway There

As we come to the end of June, I thought it a good time to take a stock check and a bit of a breather.

So, the second book in the Soulwaves Anthology came out in January and the third book is emerging slowly – only slowed down by a house move, which in itself has allowed the story to germinate and go places I wasn’t expecting.

What I am most pleased by is, even though I unexpectedly moved house, the publication of the meditations, music and lectures inspired by the numbers, and each Insertion, has remained on track.

How I do it

Each moonth, I create a new ambient track that goes live on the New Moon. I then extract the ambient layer and use that as the background to the guided meditation that comes out on the Full Moon but I listen to it while writing the script to really tune in. The following New Moon, in the Insertions Lecture, I explore the significance of the number from the previous moonth, with a guest or two.

The series meditations and ambient music tracks now last well over an hour each and the lectures over four hours. Each moonth, I am being more experimental and expansive with music and exploring more esoteric themes in the meditations – some of which I have never shared before.

… and there’s more.

Each day I publish a Just for Today meme, illustrated by Siri Opli – in the Soulwaves Facebook Group and on Twitter. Then a moonth later, I split them in two and record two new Just for Today-style meditations (using the relevant ambient music) which go live on Insight Timer. You can also listen to them in previous blog posts.

… and what’s more, you can now get a trial access to my new creative portfolio for 3 days.

New Yarns

This moonth has seen a spinning together of many threads and the weaving of new yarns – in both senses of that word.

The publication of book two in the Soulwaves Anthology is the visible, exterior linchpin – along with the launch of my premium content on the Soundwise app.

The less visible aspect of this unification came from tying all this year’s creative output to the Moon Phase.

The New Pattern

  • Each New Moon : a new ambient track for the album inspired by Insertions – the first is called Unification and the second out today called Duality
  • Each Full Moon : a new guided meditation inspired by the numbers 1 to 12 – the first is called Finding Unity and introduces the concept of the Unified Chakra
  • Each New Moon : a lecture exploring the numbers 1 to 12 – these will be live first in the Soulwaves Facebook Group and then archived for replay
  • Each Moon orbit : the daily Just for Today memes, illustrated by Siri Opli, explores each number
  • Then from the Spring Equinox, I will start releasing and serialising my next book, The Duadex,
  • All of this content is available exclusively via the Soundwise app

In addition to this output, I’ll also be publishing my not inconsiderable back archive on Insight Timer. For example, I am serialising my 2016 book, The Zone and discovering and remastering meditations that I forgot I recorded.

For example, I added some words that I recorded in 2010 to an ambient track I created in 2020 and, hey presto, Ethereal Whispers popped out of nowhere !!

In addition, I published the ambient only layer from the track Ocean’s Rise and created a ripple, no a wave, that I wasn’t expecting with a track called Souls Talking.

So next moonth, what’s happening is more of the same, all around the number 2 and the nature of duality.
