” The world is undergoing a very turbulent evolutionary process. As the
very fabric of our society crumbles, a new paradigm is unfolding all
around us founded on unconditional love, joy and mutual respect for
all life. The question is, how do we join it?
There are many paths up the spiritual mountain, for each of us the
journey will be unique. Yet we are all influenced in very similar ways
as we pass key ‘altitudes’ on route to the summit. Understanding these
transitions can remove much unnecessary suffering in our lives and
catalyse our next step.
Inspired by the book of the same name, “5 Gateways” is a colourful
documentary, detailing from direct first hand experience, the
spiritual transitions we all must make if we are to peel away the
blockages that limit us and unfold into the new paradigm. The time is
now. There is no other time! “
The concept of mentally projecting onto others is a major block in relationships of all sorts, that lead to misunderstandings, misconceptions and misperceptions of us and others. As I have said before, relationships are an outer expression of us, of our desires, goals, purposes, lessons, of who we are and inevitably of the vibration and frequency we are holding within. They are simply an outer manifestation of our inner universe, a facet of our existence.
Often times, other people are mirrors of ourselves. When we look in a mirror, we see ourselves. Sometimes the same thing happens with people in our life – we see us in them. We see aspects of ourselves in them. The way we see others could be influenced by belief systems we hold onto, judgement, social programming, dualistic perceptions, unresolved “issues” we resist letting go of and other things that have yet to be released from our psyche. As a result of that, we get a distorted image of the person that sits in front of us and then we buy into it so bad that we think that person is exactly the way we see it. But is it so ?
In order to be able to see clearly, we have to be clear within of all those things I have mentioned above, to crystallize our vision, to purify. The key, as in most cases, is awareness. We can only release something from our psyche, if we know it’s there, if we acknowledge it. That’s why meditation and all other forms of increasing awareness are highly recommended, because becoming aware is the first and most important step and facet of our evolution.
Projections serve their purpose as everything else in creation. They are showing us things about ourselves that aid in our personal transformation. For example, we may be seeing aspects of ourselves in other people that we may have not yet fully acknowledged, embraced and unified within the whole that we, which is the purpose of these projections. That is the reason why people in our lives are the greatest teachers we will ever have on our journey, because they are teaching us about ourselves. In the end, it all comes down to us, if we are willing to learn. And these lessons are priceless. It’s like finding a gold treasure, but a lot more valuable.
At the same time, projections are still a dysfunctional mental program we need to transcend. Getting a distorted image of others, or the opposite, getting projected onto, can lead to a lot of misunderstandings, of unnecessary drama, inner/outer conflicts and it’s just a waste of time and energy to constantly create it when there is a much more effective way to discover and learn about yourself – through awareness.
We achieve a greater clarity and are able to see other people exactly how they are, when we know ourselves, when we become aware of who we are, of all parts of ourselves and when our awareness expands enough for our vision to not to be influenced by outdated mental patterns.
Projecting onto others creates a discordant energy, a fog, a veil of illusion, of separation that can create blocks to Unity Consciousness. That is why it is important to be able to acknowledge and transcend this program. Dissolving the projections or at least being able to identify can bring a lot of happiness and clarity not only within us, but in our relationships as well. It is key to being able to create transparent, transcendent and higher vibrational relationships of any form.
” Eckhart’s profound yet simple teachings have already helped countless people throughout the world find inner peace and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the core of the teachings lies the transformation of consciousness, a spiritual awakening that he sees as the next step in human evolution. An essential aspect of this awakening consists in transcending our ego-based state of consciousness. This is a prerequisite not only for personal happiness but also for the ending of violence on our planet.
Eckhart is a sought-after public speaker and teaches and travels extensively throughout the world. Many of his talks, intensives and retreats are published on CD and DVD. Most of the teachings are given in English, but occasionally Eckhart also gives talks in German and Spanish. Eckhart is also a pioneer in using technology to disseminate his teachings. Through EckhartTolleTV.com, he gives monthly talks, live meditations and answers questions from viewers. In addition to The Power of Now and A New Earth, Eckhart has written a book designed for meditative reading entitled Stillness Speaks. A book consisting of selections from The Power of Now is also available, entitled Practicing the Power of Now.
“I keep Eckhart’s book at my bedside. I think it’s essential spiritual teaching. It’s one of the most valuable books I’ve ever read.”

On the 25th of July Venus will go retrograde in the sign of Leo, until the 6th of September. Venus has been a huge change-bringer in the evolution of our planet, not only through the interconnectedness between them, but also Venus’s inhabitants who have been facilitating, seeding and overlooking life on Earth for a long time now. Astrologically, we know what it usually means: love and finances. Yes, but what’s the deeper meaning of Venus Retrograde ?
In this video, Polona Aurea Dawn touches on the deeper influences of Venus retrograde in the sign of Leo and the initiations of the current ascension “waves”.
” Venus goes retrograde this July, and then she will begin her new cycle as she begins to rise as a morning Star in the archetype of Leo! There is so much going on behind the scenes Now and all of us are currently being “squeezed” in some way, which means that things are coming up. It’s just one of those times, as we let go so much in order to embrace this new Venusian cycle of embracing our Divine Royalty! The more we allow Divine Love to squeeze all that we are not out of us, the more we will continue to embrace Joy and Bliss. This is not always the easiest thing to do! Every Cosmic Master in training will constantly be asking themselves: “Okay, I know this Now … so how do I come into embodying it?” This is where no advice will ever suffice, because we truly do master ourselves from within. – Polona Aurea Dawn “
In these times we live in, with so much happening, with the weight of a dualistic world on our shoulders, with the stress of a system that doesn’t really function for many of us who stepped out of the old, it’s almost impossible not to get caught up in a serious mood. But that “almost” makes a big difference.
When you are dedicated to embodying a pure source vibration, persistence is recquired to actually maintain that state of being. When you get too caught up in external distractions, when you forget to lay back and play, that is when you lose a big part of the joy this earthly life is. We are by nature playful and adventurous, otherwise we would not have embarked on this journey called Ascension Earth. We could count it as one of the most adventurous ones we’ve been on and we’ve been on many. Therefore, if you observe yourself getting too serious at times, take a few steps to alchemize seriousness into playfulness.
A first, most important step is not taking things seriously. Your reaction to external situations, makes all the difference. Often times, we get stressed about small things, like traffic, which is so insignificant when you see the grander scheme of things. When you understand that everything is in Divine Order, that there’s a reason behind everything, even if you might not be aware of what that is, when you know that things don’t happen to you, you make them happen, you integrate a peacefulness within, that cannot be shaken up easily. If something gets you out of that state of peacefulness and acceptance, it is to give you the opportunity to look at what’s causing that imbalance, transcend it and naturally integrate a deeper and deeper state of peacefulness. When you do that, instead of reacting to those external situations that are pulling you out of your center, you will be responding with your newly internalized peacefulness and understanding that everything unfolds as it should at all times.
Be childlike, not childish. Do you remember how everything felt being a child ? You were present in the moment, you would laugh at everything, you would not overthink, you would appreciate the simplicity of life, the beauy and joy of it, of doing things, of playing. Don’t lose that part of yourself. In truth you never lose it, but it might seem like that, because it can get lost in the chamber of your heart space, especially if the chamber is clogged with stuff. Even then, the inner child is still playing, a game of hide and seek. You see, the child never stops playing. However, that aspect of yourself that got lost in the chambers, can only come out if the stuff in it is removed, so it can find the door. Remove the stuff, connect with the inner child, nurture it, give him a big hug because it wasn’t easy for him to be lost, the stuff was suffocating for him, heal it, let it come out and play.
Laughter is food for the Soul. When things get too serious, when the world appears to be crumbling down, when things aren’t going as you thought they should, laugh it all out. As paradoxical as that sounds, laughter is one of the best remedies in times of great transitions and fast-paced changes. It is also so much better and a lot more fun to just lay back, have fun and let life take its natural course, I’m telling you. I, personally, find it extremely amusing and highly entertaining when I’m constantly being surprised by the funny ways the Universe works sometimes and it’s really not always rainbows and butterflies as in 99% of the time I’m like “What the duck, Universe?”, but every time the Universe showed me (eventually) that everything is in alignment with the highest good and that there is always a higher reason behind every situation, no matter how it looks in the moment.
So, laugh loud, laugh often, see the comedy in every situation. It completely shifts the vibration of it. Laughter is alchemy. Allow yourself to loosen up, be silly, be childlike. Embrace a more playful attitude.
Don’t focus on the small details. It’s exhausting, it’s complicated and it gets you imbalanced in the mental body, by having an overactive mind. There’s already sophistication, deepness, beauty and paradoxically a certain complexity in simplicity. So, focus on the simplicity of life and of being and allow the Universe to take care of the details. When you allow, be ready to be astonished by the magical ways of the Universe. Have fun!
Inner Peace is an important aspect of self-mastery. As with everything else, true peace can only be found within and can only come from within. On this planet, there are a lot of things that are challenging for our state of being, there’s still chaos, but know that everything in creation has its purpose.
Every single one of us is more than capable to raise our frequency and vibration to a level that we flow fully from within in every moment, from the heart and soul, which is always peaceful. This is a process and it’s different for each individual, as every single person is unique and has a unique journey of growth, however the key to inner peace is awareness in all cases and an empowered attitude.
From the moment you wake up in the morning, hold an intention of peace, say an affirmation, think it, feel it, be it. As you go through the day, be the detached observant of yourself. To know peace, we must first release what impedes it. In order to do that, we have to be aware in the present moment of now and watch if we react or respond to our thoughts, the outer world, other people etc. We have plenty of opportunities to choose if we respond or react (e.g: let’s say a situation is not working as you wanted it to, what do you do ? do you react with frustration or do you take a deep breath, try to see the grander scheme of things and allow things to happen how they happen, because you know that everything truly does happen for a reason ? )
From a neutral point of view, each one is fine. However, the one that serves your highest good, the one that allows you to maintain your peaceful state, is obviously, the response, not the reaction.
You see, inner peace is a choice. It is your choice if you allow outside experiences or your own mind to bring you down vibrationally. You have a choice to make every moment. Be aware and pick wisely that which you want to allow in your reality, that which you want to embody and create. There is no one and nothing, other than yourself who is responsible for your state of being, for your inner peace. So take responsability for your energy and the energy you are putting out there. The inner peace will be reflected in your outer experiences, that is just how the Universe works.
At the same time, don’t worry if you let things get to you, some sort of drama or something like that, sometimes we do that. Don’t be too hard on yourself, take a deep breath, let go and get centered in your heart. In order to maintain a peaceful state of being at all times, persistence and dedication is needed.
It’s not like living on Earth is the easiest thing to do, I understand, but at the same time you can make it not only easier, but blissful when you are living from within->outward, because you stop being dependent on the outer to be peaceful. You just are.
