- The first phase is the awakening the individual. This refers to awakening their spiritual feelings.
- Phase 2 is awakening the concept that the individual’s feeling have self worth and value.
- Phase 3 is allowing these feelings to be trusted and recognizing the benefits that arise. Once they have received an independent intuitive thought or feeling, if acted upon, will produce the truth of the feeling. As you rely upon your intuitive feelings you discover their truth or reality.
- The 4th phase is that once you begin to trust your intuitive feelings and recognize its reality then you can independently sense what is correct or false without having to have it physically confirmed.
- The next phase is one that after having established a personal ethics based upon correct principles, which is also in phase 4. You can begin to realize that you yourself contain the seed or beginnings of greatness within and that others who may instruct in these things are at best teaching from their own experience and worse, from someone else experience. However, once the individual has achieved this phase of self reliance, you can then accept others for who they are as well as accept them as not their superior or inferior but as themselves individually.
There are different phases of persons spiritual awakening process as it relates to their individual self worth and recognition
One of the skills a person can learn is to move through time. This is a spiritual gift and is known as "past life regression and future sensing". It is not that your physical body is moving through time. It is your energetic self that travels and moves. Your physical body will stay in the present time and space. Your energetic, spiritual self is projected out of the physical boundaries of your body journeys to another place along the time continuum. The place it goes can be described as a mental "anchor point" in time.
It is easier for your energetic, spiritual self to move along the timeline if you can mentally visualize the place to where your energetic self is to go. In addition, it is also easier to move to a place in the past, especially if this was a time and location where you were formerly incarnated. This is because your energetic self can more easily locate and find your personal essence you left behind at that time and place.
When I started to explore how to develop and use those skills, I first accepted the idea that I had prior incarnations. Then I desired to know about some of those former incarnations and asked to have information about a prior incarnation brought forward. I was now mentally focused to receive such messages.
I then had a dream that felt significant. In this dream it seemed like I was white woman in a Southern state in the USA. I was dressed in a pale pastel dress that looked like it was from the early 1900's with a big hat. I was outside, standing on a big porch and was asking for money for the fight for women's rights. A black woman came by, hearing my words, and gave me ALL her money. It was coins of silver and I knew this was her entire life's savings and every penny she had, and she was freely giving it to me and entrusting it with me to help secure women's rights in the South. The coins totaled $25. I then awoke and meditated on the dream to better understand the dream message.
I was made aware this was 1915 in Mississippi and this black woman who gave me her entire life's savings to help women was Mary, my Spiritual Guide.
Later, I used that former incarnation of a life in 1915 in Mississippi as an anchor point to help me visualize a time and place to project and visit. Then, during a deep meditation, I projected my energetic, spiritual self to that anchor point in time with a purpose to bring and distribute subtle, spiritual energy, with a focus on civil rights, women's empowerment, and justice - back to that point in time and space.
This is how I started to develop and expand this skill - discovering anchor points and then sensing what type of energy may be needed to help soften or improve life at that point in time.
When you start to train yourself to meditate, teachers will often advise you to set up a routine so the process will more easily become a habit. The expert advice is usually
These meditation techniques provide you with a tried and true method get you to that space where true wonder and awe begins. But it doesn't mean it is the ONLY way to get there. In fact, once you have that process under your belt, you may also want to explore using other methods or adding to your meditation tool kit. Why? Because different meditation procedures can open different doors and take you to new paths.
For example, you can try meditating during a different time of day, or add more meditation slots into your day, or even meditate for longer periods, for example, Or you can try different positions, such as a standing meditation, or a walking meditation, or meditate with your eyes open. You can try meditating when you are in the air (such as on an airplane) or meditating as you float in water (or on a boat). You can also use various tools to stimulate your different senses (sound, smells, tastes, touch, etc.) in your meditation as well.
There are many wonders and a vast array of experiences awaiting you once you learn how to get into the "meditation zone". But there are also new pathways and doors that you can explore when you try going broader or deeper in your meditations.
A way you can improve your skills to sense different subtle energies is to pay more attention to how you feel. You can start by paying attention to how you feel at different times during day, and then see if you can associate a cause and affect to what you are feeling. Is For example, do you feel differently based on the time of day it is? Or do you feel differently due to what you ate? Or where you are located? Or with the people you are with? Or could it be based on what you are thinking about? Or hearing?
Bringing your mind and thoughts back to what you are feeling, and then determine why, is one way to help you improve your skills to feel and sense different subtle energies.
The reason a person may want to cultivate spiritual energy process is to enhance and deepen your life experiences. When you cultivate spiritual energy, you change your personal energetic vibration so it can match to different subtle, spiritual energies. When your inner energetic self matches a certain frequency, you can then connect with, interact, direct, use, and communicate with that energetic frequency. When this happens, you have spiritual experiences that are aligned with that energy frequency.
For example, you begin to SENSE things beyond your physical senses. You may start to see nonphysical images, for example. Or be able to move through time and space. Or know things but not know how you know them.
There are different tools to help you learn to change your personal energetic self, such as food, sex, sound, color, ritual, meditation, contact & movement. There are also different methods to help you improve how you connect and align with these different energetic vibrations to enhance the results you receive.
Learning to cultivate, sense, connect with, and partner with these different subtle energies will change your life. It opens a door into new understanding and awareness. And one of the best things is this process of cultivating spiritual energy stays with your energetic body and self. It creates new and different energetic threads that will stay with you beyond this physical life.

In the article “What’s Hidden in the 96%”, Nan Lu states that our visible world is only 4% of the total electromagnetic spectrum—96% is invisible.This invisible reality exists in waves of energy. Our physical, tangible reality is essentially only 4% of what is really “out there" with everything else being invisible to us.
We often only focus on our physical, tangible reality that clings to the ideas that if it can't be measured, seen, or felt, it isn't real. The problem with this concept is the assumption that our physical tools can work in this invisible, subtle reality, but they don't. Our physical tools only work in a physical world. In the invisible, subtle reality, a different set of tools and skills are needed. It is this other set of tools that helps us access this invisible world, enter it, and work in it.
Many of us sense and feel there is something beyond what our physical, tangible world implies. We are drawn to stories, books, or movies that are magical, or heroic, or showing us how to move through insurmountable odds. We may have an empty awareness associated with the physical measures of success, such as fame, fortune, money, beauty, and power. Some may feel a type of craving for more meaning and purpose, but may also feel an inability to grab on and hold it.
One reason for these feelings is a type of inner awareness within our energetic self - our soul, telling us there is more than just the 4% of reality we are comfortable in. We sense a type of pull towards looking beyond the physical boundaries and believe the answers and guidance we seek may be there. The problem is often not knowing how we can get those answers.
To access this invisible nonphysical world one will need to use tools that can transcend the filter that lies between this physical and nonphysical worlds. The tools do NOT require being a certain gender, age, or from a certain religion. In fact, no specific credentials are required. What is needed is the person be able to direct their thoughts. These skills are primarily acquired through meditation, focused attention (mindfulness), and intention. With these skills, a person can then learn how to access that into that realm of the invisible reality and energy. However, if a person wants to move beyond just being able to interact and work with this spiritual realm, they would need to learn to match their personal energetic vibration with the energy in that invisible realm.This is done through using the tools of cultivating spiritual energies.
Learning how to move and interact with the "filter" that rests between our physical reality and this nonphysical reality, can help you get the answers you seek. Learning how to match your vibration with different types of invisible energies can give you some amazing spiritual experiences, insight, and knowledge.
Additional information on the tools and methods are included in the book "Cultivating Spiritual Energy".

I keep an ‘energy journal’ and record events that happened that day. This includes things like dreams, or changes in my feelings, or ideas I am pondering. It also may include encounters with spiritual beings, or meditation results, or moments of wonder in nature. My goal is to have a written record of my spiritual experiences and 'moments of awe' so I can remember them, retrieve them, or ponder and learn from them. Keeping a written record has become a way to help me stay focused, as well as provide a means to assess, or even change my path.
I used to manually write things down in a notebook, but it was challenging to try and relocate specific events in a manual record. I then switched to typing everything into the computer and then storing it in 'the cloud'. This allowed me better access from any computer as well as the means to search everything at once with just key words or phrases.
Next, I started to place events that really stood out, on a spreadsheet. This became a summary of highlights and events, helping me to assess trends. Some of those moments were just single events and it helped me appreciate them as gifts. This record keeping and assessment process helped motivate me to keep focused as well as determine new directions to take.
For me, recording my spiritual experiences has helped me stay alert and keep driving myself on path to search for more awe and wonder.
