“The mind of the perfect man looks like a mirror – something that doesn’t lean forward or backward in its response to the world. It responds to the world but conceals nothing of its own. Therefore it is able to deal with the world without suffering pain.”
Within the covers of this book I have shared a lot of personal teachings about soul medicine, past life regression, and shamanic healing. The idea of a soul is a deeply personal one and is still very much a mystery to us today. This volume is simply to get you to open up to the possibilities of a world we can create through thought, as well as a possible quantum eternity of soul energy.
We humans all disagree as to what the soul is and who deserves one. Once you step outside the old-fashioned Christian notion that when you die, your soul has a lovely time in Heaven – or if you are naughty, you burn in hell – what is now believed to happen to the soul is very different, and I discuss some of these different ideas in the chapters about religions and the soul.
Indigenous species understood the universe; they felt the matrix or the field, the web of life. They understood that the field was a mirror to subconscious beliefs, and they knew that everything was deeply connected. If they wanted it to rain they became rain, they felt rain. They did not pray as if something was missing; they gave thanks for what was already there before it came. They understood the mirror effect. They knew all about the quantum physics in their own way. This quote by Max Planck echoes their beliefs.
“As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clearheaded science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about the atoms this much: There is no matter as such! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force that brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”
– Max Planck
Modern science agrees that this ‘matrix’ (a net of subtle energy) connects everything, with distance being no problem to connectiveness, and time being intimately joined – the past, present, and future. It is holographic, and every part of the field has everything in it. The heart’s own energy field is 40-60 times stronger than the brain, and heartfelt emotions signal the brain to release hormones, creating heart-brain coherence (harmonising the heartbeat with brainwaves – HeartMath). This empowers us to influence the matrix and within it, our life, in a positive way.
So why might you be drawn to read this book, and what outcome do I want for you? Basically, we should all strive to be unique individuals who respect and value differences in beliefs and abilities. At the same time, we can feel at one with everything. Gaining a greater understanding – a greater knowledge of creation and our planet and mankind – is only for the greater good.
Why did I feel the need to study consciousness and the soul for over 30 years? Because I have an unquenched hunger for asking questions about our existence. I think, yet again, that Ken summed this up well in our meeting notes:
“Why have we been drawn together as a group to do this spiritual work? In a way we have become a multi-celled group. If we are to draw a lesson from multi-celled creatures, then that lesson might be that we should not strive to be like each other. We should instead draw strength from each other, and rely on each other to be a catalyst for the enhancement of our own unique abilities.”

“We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely.”
– E.O. Wilson, American Biologist, 1929
