From I Am University: Dr. Joshua Stone, Negative Ego Traps and Snares on the Path of Ascension

I highly recommend you meditate and concentrate very deeply on the following list. Although very short on words, they are profound in insight. My purpose in sharing these with you is to save you suffering, karma, and delay in your path of ascension that comes from not learning these lessons. The spiritual path is very easy on one level, and incredibly complicated on another.

There are glamours, snares, and traps that the negative ego and dark forces provide every step of the way. Making mistakes and falling into these is okay. My concern is helping you to not stay stuck in them for extensive periods of time and in some cases for many lifetimes. With this brief introduction, I will begin.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Wesak: Once-in-a-Year Opportunity to Accelerate our Spiritual Growth

The Festival of Wesak is celebrated on the full moon of Taurus (full moon when the sun is in Taurus). At the hour of the full moon, the light volume of the sun is at its optimum and it is this energy of the sun that we seek to amplify and disseminate. In other words, at the hour of the full moon, a door is opened that gives humanity access to higher spiritual energies and forces which at other times we cannot contact. Our job is to make ourselves receptive to these energies, absorb them, and share them in service.

From Mudrashram Institute of Spiritual Studies: George A. Boyd, The Seven Faces of Destiny

Destiny includes those factors of the unconscious that you do not control that operate to shape the issues of your life. This karmic template is handed down to you at the time of your birth and includes the blessings and adversities of your fate.
Some traits of destiny are shaped by the body into which you incarnate. Some arise because of the particular family and neighborhood in which you are born. Other traits come from the re-emergence of issues from former lives. Some are based on the level of your spiritual and vehicular development from former lifetimes, which bring to you innate gifts and abilities; wisdom, judgment, and discernment of opportunities; and virtues and vices.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Magnetism, the Universal Law of Attraction

Magnetism is not only a force known in the physical world. Magnetism is a universal force. It operates on all planes.
This is why the images we picture in mind, concentrate on and ensoul with persistent desire magnetically attract those things to us.
Now, the same happens with our mind when we fill it with magnetic thoughts of joy, love, gratitude, happiness, health, success, friendship, with things we desire. Our aura literally becomes magnetized by these lofty thoughts and vibrations. It is charged with magnetic force and begins at once to attract that which we mentally and emotionally focus on.

From I Am University: Dr. Joshua Stone, The Keys to Becoming Invulnerable to Attack and Criticism

The key principles to becoming invulnerable to attack and criticism from others is as follows:

First, you must own your 100% personal power at all times and maintain self-mastery over your thoughts and emotions at all times. For, in truth, the only thing that can hurt you is your own thinking. It is your own thinking that determines if you can be hurt or not. You are the cause of your own reality! You are the cause of your own thoughts and emotions! The only thing that can hurt you is your own victim consciousness and/ or negative ego/fear-based/separative thinking.

From I am University: Gloria Excelcias, Master the Art of Self-Talk

Every time we think of ourselves as being weak, we literally make ourselves weak. Why? Because we cannot think a thought without setting up an analogous vibration in our bodies. Whenever I, the Soul inhabiting my bodies – physical, emotional, mental – think a thought, have an emotion, say a word, I set up a vibration in my bodies that emanates from the very center of my Soul outwards via the medium of my bodies. Remember, matter is the vehicle of the manifestation of the Soul. The reason why we have bodies even though we are not our bodies is because without a body the Soul cannot manifest itself.

From I Am University: Gloria Excelsias, Man’s Work is Ever Within Himself

Life is a mirror. The people in our life mirror ourselves. If we want the outer world to change, we have to turn within. The work is ever within ourselves. If we look at the bathroom mirror in the morning and we don’t like what we see, it will not occur to us to change the reflection by trying to change the mirror, will it? The only way to change the reflection in the mirror is to change ourselves. The same holds true for our entire life. Life is a mirror. The people in our life mirror ourselves. If we want the outer world to change, we have to turn within. The work is ever within ourselves.

From I am University: Gloria Excelsias, Why and How Not to Wound with Our Speech

Self-mastery involves mastery of our speech. Is there a way to say what needs to be said without hurting one another? Yes, there is! And the only way to do that is to identify with the other person, to tune into the inner life of the other person, to feel as the other person feels, and then communicate from that point of identification. When we forget to identify with the other person, we end up giving advice only from the outside – „I am here, you are there, I am so perfect, you are not“ – and that’s the kind of advice that hurts.
However, when we remember to identify with the other person, to tune into the feelings of the other person, we can give advice from the inside – and that’s the kind of advice that does not hurt.

Peter Shepherd, My Views on Christ Consciousness

Each of us is 100% responsible for our subjective reality, i.e. our private mental and emotional space, our own universe. This includes our interpretations of events, based on our beliefs and memories, attachments and fears, and our corresponding emotional reactions. The corollary is that we are certainly not at all responsible for another person’s subjective reality, i.e. their thoughts and feelings. And another person (or situations and events) cannot be at all responsible for our own thoughts and feelings.

From Mudrashram Institute of Spiritual Studies: George A. Boyd, How to Open Your Own Third Eye

Meditation on Your Third Eye
This meditation is used to unite your attention with your attentional principle. This technique is called Purusa Dhyan meditation.
Purusa is the form of consciousness in which you will behold your attentional principle.
Dhyan means to meditate, to gaze upon an object of meditation, to unite your attention with that object. In this meditation, your attentional principle is the object of meditation.
The attentional principle consists of four elements: your attention (chittam), vehicles (swarup), the essential form of your attentional principle (purusa), and the wave of consciousness (chetan).
