The Next Orbit of the Sun

The Next Orbit of the Sun

SeasonsAnother Turn of the Wheel

It’s fair to say the last three orbits of the Sun have been interesting for humanity. We’ve had two years of global pandemic and a year where the prospect of WW111 has raised its head. In the UK, we’ve seen the worst excesses of an incompetent and corrupt so-called government play out.

Of course, while all this doom and gloom might sound terrible and as if the world is about to end, we should realise that cosmic forces are playing out and influencing affairs on our planet.

While some of the world is in turmoil, it has also shown the best side of humanity. In all probability, the UK Tory government has engineered its own oblivion. Regime change will see an end to hostility between Russia and Ukraine. Do not forget of course other areas of tension and conflict too. The threat of global climate change being one of them.

So what can we do as individuals to help turn the tide. Well, my mission to help get the whole world meditating, one person at a time – with the help of Insight Timer, continues.

With this in mind, I have a whole year of meditations, ambience and courses planned for release, as we orbit our home star once more. There will be at least one new meditation and one new ambient track available to listen to free each month. I also plan to release at least three new courses, one every three months, which are available to Insight Timer Premium subscribers.

By way of example, just this month, I’ve published these already …

I am also extending the materials for the Path to Overstanding. This year we will be exploring a glyph called the Cube of Space – it is like a software upgrade for the soul and some even call it “a death-less reincarnation”.

Note there is no fear-based New Year sale, just maintenance of last year’s prices. It is mindfully and soulfully designed to be an investment affordable to as many people as possible at less than the price of a takeaway pizza a month. This year it will include live ‘moonthly’ group mentoring sessions for those walking the Path or considering embarking upon it – they are called Uberstandings.

Note that you can also take the first step on the Path to Overstanding for free.

Talking of extensions, we are also extending our house and, at the same time making, it as eco-friendly as possible. While doing this is of course introspective, we also want to share our experience of how to restore old, tired, mouldy and cold housing stock.

So this year’s blogs will document my journey and include a mix of how the house refurbishment is going along and an update on progress on the ongoing construction of my metaphorical ‘house of enlightenment’.

I guess I have literally become a builder of the new Adytum – which is one reason I had to unsubscribe as a student of BOTA so I would not plagiarise their materials. My aim remains the same – to take what has been made esoteric (and difficult to understand) and make it exoteric (both accessible and practical in its application).

Onwards and Upwards …

The Path to Overstanding 2023
A Time of Bifurcation

A Time of Bifurcation

Two Railway TracksTwo Tracks

I am writing this blog on the morning of the seventh day of Ukraine invasion by Russian forces. Some people have decided to go down a track which may have grave consequences for the whole of humanity, not least more imminently for the people of Ukraine and the wider Baltic regions. Their raisin d’être seems to be fear of potential threat when actually opportunities for co-creation and collaboration are alternative options.

Western Powers will do what they can, short of engaging in war themselves, to apply pressure on Russia to desist and retreat – or at least stop with the full annexation of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

Somewhere down the line, a bifurcation has occurred. As many people on Spaceship Earth are seeking ways to reach post-pandemic unity and usher in an age of planetary stewardship, others are dragging the world back to pre-1939 ways of thinking and doing.

This by the way is as political as I get in a blog … mainly as I do not profess to have any answers or expertise in political and military matters.

What I do know is that we are at a point of bifurcation and, at the very least, the days for partisan, elitist and corrupt politics in the West has to stop for us to have any chance of global peace. At the same time, the crushing fear held by dictators must be replaced with true love for humanity. The massive chasm between the behaviours of the Russian and Ukranian presidents are an example of the rift that has to be healed … hopefully before too many more on each side lose their lives for no logical reason.

Learn Attention ManagementMy Own Bifurcation

The reason this blog is about bifurcation is that I find myself at a point when there is potentially an imminent split in my own focus. On reflection, both sides of this split however are in harmony as they have the same aim – that of awakening of consciousness.

The bifurcation lies in where people are at in their journey. Clearly, some people on the planet are hell-bent on courses where death and destruction are inevitable consequences. This naturally grabs news headlines and peoples’ attention.

I estimate that the vast majority of the world population would just like an easier life, without hardship and strife.

I have been passionate about sharing content freely, even before I was invited to publish on Insight Timer in 2015. I can testify that what goes around, comes around and that the freemium model works.

For a while now, the app has delivered some premium content in the form of courses. This provided an income that has helped me and many other guides to a position where we can afford to creat more and more content. This is the ‘going around’.

So as I am just on the point of launching and expanding on my own premium offering, I am delighted that I have been invited to run a workshop for Insight Timer. I hope it’s the first of many.

It will be delivered in April over three sessions and the subject is Attention Management – a new way of approaching time management indeed. Watch this short video for more and here’s the link to book your space:

My aim in delivering this workshop is that you will get your investment of time and money back many times over. As such, this type of event represents a bridge from purely freemium to premium.

Note that my output on Insight Timer is aimed at those on the cusp of awakening. 

The Path To OverstandingThe Path To Overstanding

My new ‘premium’ offering is aimed at those who would like to ‘awaken’ to a whole new level. The word ‘premium’ is italicised as it’s really not expensive – starting at less than $5 a month. I want this information to be accessible and affordable to many. The fees just help me to cover hosting and administrative costs.

Since I first published my first non-fiction books back in 2009, I have been focussed on making the esoteric – what is complex and somewhat obfuscated – into the exoteric, namely understandable and accessible.

My latest premium offering is the culmination of that journey. Back in 2009 and 2013, I wrote two books – namely Flavours of Thought and Planes of Being – which are, respectfully, deconstructions of the Major and Minor Arcana of the Tarot. I always knew there was a third book and indeed that I might also design my own deck.

So, as previously signposted in this blog and elsewhere, the deck will see the light of day this year and has been beautifully illustrated by Siri Opli. It’s called The Tarot of Overstanding and is an evolution of the Tarot as it is known.

In parallel with its release, I am writing the book that accompanies it and serialising in audiobook format via my Soundwise app. It’s augmented by three other Soundcasts – Meditations on the Keys, a new ambient album called Arcanum and a series of exclusive conversations called Uberstandings.

It will contain and explain all the esoteric wisdom I have come across over the last 15 years and also include information that I am receiving from off-worldly intelligences. It is literally mind-opening.

It’s available exclusively to subscribers, optionally along with my other recent Soulwaves-based metaphysical content.

Let me wrap up this blog by sharing some freemium content written by Henry Longfellow back in 1855 and so relevant to these bifurcated times.

The End of Endarkenment

The End of Endarkenment

One TribeThe last two years has been somewhat traumatic for humanity. Six million souls, at the very least, have shed their mortal coil in some way due to COVID. The pandemic has exposed the dangerous combination of corruption and incompetence in governments and businesses across the globe.

This all came at a time when humanity thought that Climate Change was their biggest threat. It still is and there is a possible connection to COVID. Perhaps it’s a virus that didn’t come from a lab but introduced my the Earth Consciousness of Lady Gaia to protect Spaceship Earth from the worst excesses of humankind. 

At the same time, these tumultuous years have brought people closer along with some amazing acts of kindness and compassion. We are commuting and travelling across the globe a little less. Some connected with long lost friends and families. Some of us got to know our neighbours a little more. Some of us found some more  time for ourselves – perhaps ushering in a change of lifestyle or career, perhaps learning a new skill.

We are on the cusp of an age of enlightenment which will see us evolving from being planetary abusers to being cosmic caretakers. I say cosmic because our influence can already be felt off-planet. We have a cloud of satellites around our planet – some of it is already junk and debris. We’ve even littered the Moon, Mars, Venus and the moon Titan. While the space probes have brought new knowledge, one day we should go and clear up the mess. We certainly should not colonise Mars until we learn how to properly look after this planet.

We have created an electromagnetic energy sphere from our small planet with a radius of over 100 light years. More significantly, our collective field of consciousness, which travels at infinite speed, can already be sensed by beings blessed with the ability to tune into it – as can we with others.

To help usher in this new age of enlightenment, we each have one simple task and that’s to shine light into any areas in our lives where there is darkness.

Simply put, all we need to do is to end endarkenment.


SpotlightSo how do we go about that? Does it mean it’s time to face our demons and explore our shadow side. Quite rightly, such exercises fill us with dread and should be avoided at all costs.

A better way to end endarkenment starts within us. When we make such changes individually and microcosmically, collectively they effect a macrocosmic shift.

Here’s how to begin, noting just doing one of these a month is a start:

  1. Each and every day, be kind to yourself and make sure you treat yourself, even if it’s just in a small way
  2. Each and every day, perform a random act of kindness to an acquaintance, the planet or ideally a stranger
  3. Each and every day, find something to be grateful for
  4. At least once each and every week, make a connection with a new soul, or a reconnection with an old soul
  5. At least once each and every week, let your creative self come out to play
  6. At least once each and every month, if you have a gift, share an aspect of it freely 
  7. At least once each and every month, if you create something of value, share with the world in exchange for some money or a gift of reciprocal value

By way of example, let me share with you how I go about all of this on a typical day, week and month.

  1. I treat myself to at least 10 minutes of meditative Me Time each and every day
  2. I let people out in traffic or give way on our local single track roads. Say hello and smile at people when out walking dogs. 
  3. Each day, I am grateful to Mother Earth for holding us to her as well as the air we breathe and the water we drink. If I see a sunset or sunrise, I am grateful to the constant cosmic dance of Sun, Moon and Earth.
  4. I am always on the look out for like-minded souls on social media – or when increasingly mixing again face-to-face
  5. On average, I deliver around four nuggets of creative output a week. Then, in non-work related activity, creativity abounds too.
  6. On average, I share a new piece of content free to the world on Insight Timer four times each month PLUS a free one hour talk.
  7. My metaphysical library of content, for Soundwise subscribers, has a new addition of content four times for every orbit of the Moon.
