In November our teams (Midnight Watchmen and the Black Moon Paranormal Research Society) investigated the Point Lookup Lighthouse in Maryland. Listed on many sites as the most haunted location in Maryland we ventured from Pennsylvania to Maryland in search of the unknown. An outstanding example a wooden dwelling with a lantern fixed on top of the building, in contrast to the stand-alone lighthouses with separate quarters for the lightkeepers; the Point Lookout Lighthouse is situated at the convergence of the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River. Operations at the light ceased in 1965, and the Fog Bell Tower is now located at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum; yet despite its inactivity and short life beginning in 1830, the lighthouse has an amazing, full history.

I recently watched Destination America’s new paranormal show, “Paranormal Lockdown”, and have mixed reviews. Though it is exponentially better than a lot of the shows currently on Destination America and is 1000 times better than “Cursed: The Bell Witch”, I was left with the feeling of “meh”.

We have read and heard a number of times that we do not utilize the full capacity of our brain, only a fragment of the forces of our Mind are used in our daily life. The full utilization of the potentials of our Mind would, however, add to our personality an immensely creative force. The question, therefore, arises, how we are able to access the creative forces of our Mind?
In the Captivity of the Mind
The creative force of the Mind is only accessible in the present moment, in the here and now. We need to live in the present time and concentrate our energies to the actual moment in order to be really able to live our lives to the full, to be present in life, and to access the creative forces of the Mind. We are only able to enjoy the happiness and pleasure of the actual moment in the present. If our Mind is roaming the paths of the past or the future, the opportunities that are open to us in the present moment will close down and we will be unable to access the creative forces of the Mind. Instead, we will find ourselves in the captivity of the Mind.
Being in the captivity of the Mind means that we are either the prisoners of our past, or we live under the spell of an imaginary future. If in the majority of our waking hours our thoughts are engaged by the past of the future, in most of the cases we will not be able to act when it is necessary for the opportunities of the present.
In most cases, our Mind is locked up in the prison of the past by an event the outcome of which is unpleasant to us. Our thoughts turn toward that event in the past, we would like do change the course of the events, or we worry what others might think of us because of our improper behavior in that past moment.
Another way of becoming prisoners is when our Mind puts the spell of an imaginary future or the image of a desired, idyllic state upon us. Then we mobilize all our energies to make those images come true, and we tend to pass by the opportunities offered by the present almost blindly.
Yet another way the Mind uses to chain us to our future is our constant worry about what is going to happen to us in the future. We are afraid of, or even fear, the future, our Mind constantly produces scenarios the outcome of which are disastrous for us. We lose our job, we fall ill, our partner leaves us, etc.
A characteristic dimension of the captivity of the Mind is that the Mind is usually rejective, or even hostile, to the present moment. We often think that this or that should not happen that way, I should be somewhere else now, in some much better place. Why do such things only happen to me all the time? Our mind is thus in a constant struggle with the present, and that very struggle is what keeps us in captivity.
Living in the prison of the Mind, we are not in control of our lives, we just drift among the illusions generated by the Mind, and in most cases we are unable to act in the present moment.
Accessing the Creative Powers of the Mind
Let us take a look at a few methods that may enable us to access the creative forces of the Mind, and at the same time may help us to break free of the captivity of the Mind.
- We must reach beyond the past. Nobody has ever been able to change the past, so all the energy that we use to mull over the past is wasted energy. Instead, concentrate that energy on the present moment, be alert and conscious in connection with everything that we are experiencing in the present moment.
- Have no fear of the future, since the future is not a reality, it is just a projection of the Mind. Only the present moment exists. What is our present moment like, our imagined future will be like, too?
- It is only possible to make our future plans come true through our present actions. It is only in the present moment that we are able to do what will affect our future. Let us be careful, however, and do not sacrifice the opportunities of the present on the altar of an imaginary future or the image of an ideal situation. If we are really present in the here and now, and we are able to be happy there, we are not going to have any problem with that in the future either. Future is just a present moment, too.
- Let us accept the present moment as it is, and do not struggle against it. Do not look at the present moment as an enemy, and do not make a judgment about it. Give up the fight, and just be simply present in the here and now. Turn with a conscious and alert attention to whatever is happening in front of our eyes in the present moment.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you have a golf ball size consciousness when reading a book, then you will have a golf-ball size understanding. This is why it is crucial for you to broaden your minds. I am sure those of you who are reading this, have a broad mind and expanded consciousness. And by viewing the videos below, you will open yourselves to the reality and occult power of sound/music.
There is an ocean of pure vibrant consciousness inside each one of us. It is right at the source and base of mind. It is right at the source of thought. And it is also at the source of all matter.
For those of you who do not know, Matter is actually a poorly defined term in science. The term, Matter, is used in reference to a substance (often a particle) which has “rest mass”. The matter is also used loosely as a general term for the substance that makes up all observable physical objects.
Why is a matter so vaguely defined? Because there is no matter, as such.
All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume that behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.
The solidity of this world seems totally indisputable – as a fixed thing which you can see and touch. Your body seems also reassuringly solid. But, beginning with Albert Einstein, modern physics has assured us that this solidity is a mirage.
All physical matter, everything we have around us is actually the result of a frequency. And what this means is that if you amplify the frequency, the structure of the matter will change.
Oscillating a wine glass by playing sound at its resonance frequency, will cause it to move, change and liquefy its structure and eventually even break it.
The sound is behind the manifestation of form and matter. Welcome to the study of visible sound and vibration, called Cymatics – allowing us to see into the otherwise hidden geometry in sound and the frequencies which form matter. Cymatic frequencies have an effect on texture, structure, water and more. We humans are made of over 70% water!
The sound is one of the sole factors which holds existence together. The sound is the basis of form and shape. Everything in existence is the result of a frequency.
We are told in school that in the beginning, was the word, and the word was God. We are told that this is how the world began and how creation took shape.
Word = Symbolic for Sound Frequency.
As shown in my website videos, what you previously thought were ancient sacred sites contain pretty carvings/images, are actually intelligent carvings/images depicting sound frequencies – cymatics! Therefore, geometric patterns all over the world have much meaning and significance.
The ancients knew much more than given credit for regarding life, the universe, astronomy, advanced mathematics, magic, magnetism, healing, unseen forces, etc. Encoded knowledge is and has been conveyed in plain sight, but as signs and symbols – which only the initiates would ever understand. Thanks to the works of those such as Manly P. Hall, Madam Blavatsky, etc and myself, you do not need to be initiated in secret societies to receive the secrets of the world.
The intangible aspects of our existence, such as emotions, are part of the true reality of higher consciousness. If emotions are part of a dimension that we cannot experience as part of our five senses (touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell), then how is it that we are all aware of our own emotions?
What most people believe to be emotions, are not truly the emotion itself. What we are experiencing is the physical manifestation of these emotions. Anger causes a disturbance in the psyche which manifests itself in the ego. These manifestations cause the heart rate to increase, body temperature to rise, and other physical traits which signify anger.
Just as music from the radio is the physical manifestation of an intangible signal, our experience of emotion is the physical manifestation of an intangible signal too. It has been shown that our emotions possess a vibratory frequency. Further to this, it has been shown that there are only two emotions which humankind experiences:
LOVE & FEAR
All other emotions branch off either directly or indirectly from these two emotions. Fear possesses a long and slow frequency vibration, whilst Love possesses a very rapid and high frequency. Again, Cymatics can reveal the vibrations forming the foundations of existence.
When the vibrations of sound are passed through a form of media, there is a set pattern that will follow. When the frequency increases, the media develops into a more complex pattern. This is precisely what is happening to earth and to humanity.
There are 64 possible codes of amino acids in human DNA structure, which are made of the four elements:
By any means of logic, we should have all 64 codes activated within our DNA structure. Yet, we only presently possess 20 active codes.
There is a switch that turns off and on, where those coding sites lay. And this switch is Emotion. Patterns of emotion have recently been discovered to be directly and physically linked to human genetics!
An individual living in fear is limited to far fewer sites for coding than an individual living in love. Remember, the vibrational frequency of love is rapid and high.
Russian researcher Dr. Vladimir Poponin worked with DNA and light particles also known as photons. The effect produced, known as the “Phantom DNA Effect” was astounding!
The Hollywood movie, Mission To Mars (2000), should now be watched again – showing Sound vs DNA vs “Our Past, Present & Future”!
Quantum physics has revealed what ancient masters knew long ago. That is, matter does not exist. The concept of substance arose from the philosophy of the Greek philosopher, Aristotle (384-322 BC). From this concept arose science’s conception of matter. The fact of the matter is, the substance of the universe is consciousness.
The belief that the substance of the universe is matter, leads to what I call, a fear – greed dichotomy. People in their quiet desperation attempt to accumulate as many material possessions and riches as possible. However, it is behaviour which is important and not material possessions and riches because the universe is consciousness.
Quantum Physics has shown that space and time are illusions of perception. Therefore, our bodies cannot be a reality if they occupy this space.
Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) was a New Zealand-born physicist and chemist who became known as the father of nuclear physics.
Ernest Rutherford performed an experiment in Manchester, England, that revealed to him the shape of the interior of an atom. Scientists were shocked to discover that the atom is almost entirely empty space. The question then became, how could this empty atom possibly make a seemingly solid space around us?

In our culture, who assumes the role of holy or wise one?
In more traditional cultures the holy, wise one is a central figure. Often, they advise the king/queen, sit at the right hand of the chief, understand human behavior and prescribe medicine, help pass along the oral history of the tribe, and have an inner connection with universal wisdom and Truth. When a difficult societal issue arises, this individual is central in helping decide direction or outcome. Daily, they are consulted on a variety of issues.
Today, this diverse role and function have been spread across a team of specialists. For guidance, we go to a priest, counselor, doctor, psychologist, historian, politician or lawyer. Because of the complexity of some issues, this specialist may not even live in our own community, and to consult them we make an appointment, months in advance, travel to get the advice/treatment and pay a fee.
This specialist model has plus and minuses. Specialists because of training have information and expertise not available to others. In some endeavors, these people are essential and our culture cannot be without them. However, by separating out problems and going to others for solutions, we lose sight for the most part it is possible to manage our own concerns. Within the wise one model, a majority of issues can be solved by one person, who is readily accessible, knows us and is part of our tribe/family.
In both models, the holy/wise one and specialist model, there is reliance upon others. While it is important in today’s technological world to have the option to work/consult with a specialist, generally, we have forgotten our own individual potential and multi-level capacities. With training, we can become our own source of wisdom and through inner perception manage a wide range of daily issues, consulting with specialists as indicated.
Gradually, we are returning to a model of self-reliance and individual responsibility. We are shifting away from dependence on others and searching for our own inner wisdom to manage our life. Tomorrow each person will be their own wise one, consulting with specialists far less frequently and only when required. This is the next stage in the evolutionary process.
How will this shift in personal awareness occur? We are in the beginning stages of it. Look around and notice the increasing interest in different religious philosophies that maximize individual human potential and how so many are returning to spiritually based living. See the general discontent in the way the government is being run and the growing awareness republicans or democrats cannot save us. From the outside, our way of life is being attacked by terrorists who want to return to a more traditional and religious based social system (as defined by them). It is generally recognized, greed in the marketplace is destroying our middle class. The family fabric is being strained with couples having to work three jobs. Soon we will be a society of rich and poor.
Many are beginning to wonder, what went wrong? Also, many are searching for real, lasting answers.
We are living in an age when people are turning away from authority based on individual based action. Over time, many realized we have given up too much responsibility to authority, government and institutions; gradually people are taking back control of their lives and working locally to solve their own problems.
The shift has occurred and will continue. Remember- a better world is created one person at a time.
In order to create better, more complete people, we have to add the missing spiritual ingredient. This enriching element balances individual greed and helps the individual realize- because of our complex world; often our best interest is served to help our neighbor. For example, we may have to spend money to upgrade the air filtering capacity of our car engine; so, we have clean air to breathe. This may cost personally, but in the long run, our air quality is healthier.
According to the mystic, the missing ingredient and balancing factor is higher consciousness. This consciousness, because of its alignment with Truth, enables the individual to work toward collective interest. This potential is latent in everyone, and its individual development and operation will help save us, and we can continue with our own evolution.
Personal spiritual development is a new frontier and area of inquiry. How can each traveler develop inner wisdom and reach higher consciousness? How can each become a wise man/woman and achieve excellence in their daily life?
There is a way to do this, but we have forgotten where and how to look. The next phase will see its full reemergence.
How do I go about finding the missing ingredient?
Turn back to the religion of your birth; become a better Christian, Jew or Moslem. Seek the inner core of religious experience; do not be satisfied with the outer shell of religious teaching and fossilized rules created by others. Find your own, inner, vibrant Truth, and become a spiritual traveler. Each of the great religions provides a structure or framework from which to begin the inner journey of exploration of self and higher consciousness.
And if for some reason, your journey is restricted by the religion of your birth, seek Truth and higher consciousness in another spiritual path. Pray and ask for a different way to open to you. Pray for a guide and teacher who will show you your own inner potential and teach awareness of your own growing spirituality. Find a teacher that is aligned with Truth and will give you tools to uncover your own strength, and teach you how to proceed on your own.
In this endeavor, three factors must be aligned: the student, the teacher and the grace (Baraka) of the path.
It is a tradition that the teacher calls to the student’s sincerity or purity of heart; this is the factor that enables the student to be successful.
How do you grow sincere in your efforts?
Seek Truth or wisdom for its own sake not for what it will give you. Seek Truth because you love and must know it. Then, as The Light or God Wills, the golden or inner path will open to you.
This is the balancing factor, the missing ingredient. One day this awareness will be as common as the growing realization that there is an underlying or connecting energy in the universe.
Until I achieve this inner understanding, what am I to do?
Try to live a good, balanced life. Achieve excellence in something. Seek to help others and develop the many aspects of yourself. Make time to listen to your inner song. Stay away from that which is destructive. Do things in moderation and try not to hurt someone. Be kind to yourself and others. Be a good loving person that is an asset to their family, community, and the world.
If you do these things, in time, the inner missing ingredient will develop. As it develops, it will help you fully utilize all of your skills and abilities. Added spiritual capacity is a balancing and enabling element; helping travelers reach human excellence and completion.
And when this occurs, you will be a king/queen in this world and the next; having your own inner wise one to consult.
