Teachings of Ayahuasca – Creation, Death, Rebirth, and 15 Essential Life Lessons

By Juliet Tang, Wake Up World

My Beloved Teacher

Of all the spiritual teachers I have worked with, ayahuasca has been the most powerful, the wisest, as well as the toughest. Her love for you is so great that she will again and again take you down the rabbit holes and the darkest places inside of you until the lessons are learned and mastered.

This article is based on my personal account of working with this powerful medicine during one of my ceremonies though no two journeys are ever alike even for the same person, so I share it with great respect and humility knowing no words can adequately capture what I experienced.

In this time and space dimension, ayahuasca is known to be an entheogenic traditional South American brew that is ingested for healing and spiritual awakening. To me, she is my beloved spiritual teacher and life coach who has taken me to heaven, hell, the universe and beyond — to ensure that I remember my true essence.

Enlightenment After Death

By Wes Annac, Editor, Culture of Awareness & Openhearted Rebel

This is an excerpt from Chapter 3 of Enlightened Afterlife, my new ebook centered on Spiritualist philosophy on life after death. In this section, we learn about enlightenment after death (a rare experience) from the “spirit communicators” who’ve experienced it.

Death isn’t usually described as enlightening. Even in spiritual circles centered on enlightenment, there doesn’t seem to be much of a link between it and death.

As I mentioned previously, enlightenment is the ultimate higher state of consciousness achievable through love, meditation, service to mankind and other means. Some philosophies state that we’re all inching closer to it whether or not we know it.

Enlightenment is believed to be the purpose of life. It can be attained more quickly depending on the choices made in life and the level of devotion given to it, but it’s believed to be our destination no matter where we are right now.

This means even the most hateful or spiritually starved people are inching toward it. They might be pretty far from it now, but like the rest of us, they’ll get there when they’re ready. Continue reading Enlightenment After Death

Death Is for the Living

By Wes Annac, Editor, Culture of Awareness & Openhearted Rebel

This is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Enlightened Afterlife, my new ebook centered on Spiritualist philosophy on life after death. In this section, we begin to hear from channeled “spirit communicators” about death and the beginning of the new life that reportedly awaits.

Spirit communicators made it clear that death is not the horrifying experience we assume it to be.

We are spiritual beings who live on after the death of the body. The body will eventually die, but the spirit that resides within it is eternal and will move on to the next plane of existence when the body is no more.

Death is described as a natural and even ecstatic process that surpasses our wildest expectations in terms of the things it makes us aware of.

The most common advice given by these channeled spirits was to stop fearing death and to instead accept and appreciate it for its role in liberating the spirit from the confines of the body and the physical world. Continue reading Death Is for the Living

Alan Watts – How To Not Be Killed By Death

By David Lindberg, In5D.com

When I heard this lecture I understood how you can not be a victim of jealousy to other people if you stick with doing what you want. For example, if I would chose the career of a project manager because of the money, I would always be jealous of the lawyers earning more than me..

But if I were to chose a life making films like these, which is what I really want, I could never be jealous of the lawyers and their money, because they’re doing something I would not be happy doing. I’m already satisfied.

As Alan Watts says, I’d do it for another end – to make money, and there’s no end in making money and because of that I’d never be satisfied. Someone would always have more than me. Continue reading Alan Watts – How To Not Be Killed By Death

Krishnamurti Quotes: Death… May Be What We Call God

via J. Krishnamurti.org

When death comes, it does not ask your permission; it comes and takes you; it destroys you on the spot. In the same way, can you totally drop hate, envy, pride of possession, attachment to beliefs, to opinions, to ideas, to a particular way of thinking?

Can you drop all that in an instant? There is no “how to drop it”, because that is only another form of continuity. To drop opinion, belief, attachment, greed, or envy is to die—to die every day, every moment.

If there is the coming to an end of all ambition from moment to moment, then you will know the extraordinary state of being nothing, of coming to the abyss of an eternal movement, as it were, and dropping over the edge—which is death.

I want to know all about death, because death may be reality; it may be what we call God—that most extraordinary something that lives and moves and yet has no beginning and no end.

The Collected Works vol XI, p 242

It’s Time to Free Ourselves from the Fear of Death!

By Claudia Ayaz, Wake Up World

Look at us. From the moment we manage to form one coherent thought, we are indoctrinated with fear. Fear of strangers, fear of poison, fear of the dark, fear of doctors, fear of disease, fear of accidents, fear of bullies, fear of natural disasters, fear of school, fear of punishment, fear of failure, fear of heights, fear of elevators, and the all-present fear of death.

Someone dies? Oh, my. We read and hear about it ad nauseum. About their life, about their youth, about their last hours, about their loves, about their obsessions, about their secrets. We do not let them go. We keep them prisoner in our reality by constantly pouring energy in their now-past life. Continue reading It’s Time to Free Ourselves from the Fear of Death!

A Great Initiation Called Death

By Julian Rose, Waking Times

There’s no point in pretending it’s something not to think about. We do anyway don’t we? But it’s how we think about it that matters – and how we feel about it, even more so.

Carlos Castaneda rivets our attention on the ever imminent reality in proclaiming the Shaman’s rule:

…that unless one can stand face to face with the unflinching reality of death – one is unsuited to the role of warrior traveler.

Now some might retort, “We are not aspiring to be warriors anyway, so why make a big deal out of it?” OK, but let’s not confuse the more standard war-like connotation of that word ‘warrior’ with its further meaning as: warrior traveler. Continue reading A Great Initiation Called Death

Enlightened Quotes: Life and Death

“Life and death are important. Don’t suffer them in vain. There’s no advantage in deceiving yourself. Even if you have mountains of jewels and as many servants as there are grains of sand along the Ganges, you see them when your eyes are open. But what about when your eyes are shut? You should realize then that everything you see is like a dream or illusion.” – Bodhidharma

The Spirit World Chronicles: The Coordinated Nature of Death – Part 3/3

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Concluded from Part 2

Ethel Mclean tells us that she remembers visiting the fourth dimension before she passed on, and she also tells us that everyone travels there when their bodies are asleep.

“I know now that I had often visited this plane of life in my sleep and you will be surprised to know that you all come here on occasions. It is hard for us to realize that you have no conscious memories of these visits, for, when you are in your astral bodies, you can see, hear and speak to us quite normally.” (1)

However sharpened our etheric perception is when we’re out of the body, when we make our way back to it, we’re re-endowed with the same thoughts, feelings, and knowledge we left with. Something tells me that we do far more than travel to the astral plane when we’re sleeping, but we won’t remember all of the magnificent things we do until we’re back in spirit.

The Spirit World Chronicles: The Coordinated Nature of Death – Part 2/3

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

Continued from Part 1

According to Sigwart, his role in composing these symphonies and influencing earthly musicians is responsible for his early departure, which he chose for himself.

“This was waiting for me and was the reason for my early death.” (1)

I couldn’t say why Sigwart was on the earth in the first place if he intended to leave so soon, but no two lower-dimensional paths are alike. Some people choose to stay here for nearly a century, learning and growing as much as they can, while others simply pop in and back out to the liberated realms of the fourth dimension.

Maybe Sigwart, and others who’ve been in his shoes, briefly came to the earth so they could gain certain, essential experiences before heading back. Maybe Sigwart needed to learn something that was essential to his creation of one of the heavenly symphonies, but I couldn’t say for sure.

For all we know, his vibration could’ve been so high that his existence on the earth, however brief, influenced mankind in a positive way. He and everyone else like him are influencing us positively now, and if physical death was the price he had to pay to play the role he’s playing, then I’m sure it was more than worth it.
