This is a strange, strained and interesting time on planet Earth. Lots going on that can seem challenging, scary, confusing, and more, depending on where your attention is placed. Many are feeling great sadness about certain local and world events; some are experiencing volatility in work or personal relationships. Others are chafing against a sense being constrained and confined, yet are apprehensive and uncertain of how to break free.
In the last week or so I have come across several things that have not only helped me have a better understanding of why certain things are happening right now, but also given me some insight into how to make better use of the forces at play. I’ve included several of them in this post. Hopefully for many of you reading this, they will provide some useful “aha’s” and evolutionary support…..
# 1 – This first item is from The Hathors by way of a newsletter from Tom Kenyon. It really helped give me a better overview of what’s happening energetically, and the re-potting analogy seemed to hit the nail on the head and perfectly explain why I’ve been feeling the way I have….
From our perspective the destabilization of your world, which we mentioned in our last planetary message, is accelerating at an ever-faster rate. This is producing immense stress upon your biological, mental and emotional realities.
What we wish to offer in this message is a practical tool to bring your body/mind complex into a greater state of coherency in the midst of the ever-increasing chaos around you.
The shock waves of change that many of you are experiencing can be likened to the re-potting of a plant that has become root-bound. For many of you, your psychological and biological roots to your current perceived reality are bound up. With some exceptions most humans are finding the current transition that the world is passing through most difficult to contend with.
Much of what you might have believed to be true is being revealed as lies. Many of the institutions you counted upon to protect you are increasingly being unveiled as insidious. Interpersonal relationships are strained due to the simple fact that so many of you are stressed by the complex changes around you, changes that you seemingly have no control over. This produces destructive patterns of response within your biology, meaning how your body is responding to the stressors around you, including your mental and emotional faculties.
Returning to our metaphor of the root-bound plant, all sentient beings have psychic roots that connect them to their perceived reality. When a plant becomes too root-bound it is unable to flourish. Yet the paradox here is that when you place a root-bound plant into a larger container, with more space to grow, the plant undergoes a period of shock and disorientation. It takes awhile for the plant to recognize that there is more space to spread out its roots. While our comment may seem implausible to some of you, you are actually in the midst of greater opportunities for accelerated growth due to the fact that the multi-dimensional space you are in is expanding, i.e. your pot is getting bigger. And yet your visceral experience may be that you are feeling more confined than ever.
Our position regarding this odd paradox is that human beings—with some exceptions—tend to be slow in recognizing new spaces for growth. They get used to being root-bound and confined by their perceived reality. There is an innate laziness in human nature when it comes to the task of stepping into a new reality that is greater than has been perceived before. If you are one of the few humans who is bold in the face of new realities, we salute you. But for most humans, there is a deep reticence in allowing their own psychic roots to expand beyond perceived realities into new vistas.
One of the great challenges in this period of global transition is that your difficulties are not just mental and emotional, they are physical in nature as well. By this we mean your physiology and neurology are deeply challenged by the rapid changes in your perceived reality.
The Aetherium is a sound tool for you to address these issues head-on. The sound codes that comprise this sound meditation come directly from the higher realms of light. They are emanations from the tenth, eleventh and twelfth dimensions of reality in a realm we call The Aethos. This vibratory field of light is self-aware as well as highly intelligent and resides in a state of consciousness you would call non-duality. For our purposes, we will simply address practical suggestions for how to use this unique sound pattern.
When you listen to The Aetherium you will hear a continuous drone-sound in the background. This is The Aethos sound meditation that we presented in 2012. Emerging from this sound field are complex descending sound codes that bring the comfort, nurturing and healing energies of The Aethos into the cells of your physical body. This is a downloading of light through the agency of sound into your physical body to assist you through this immense transition the world is passing through.
There are two means of listening to this sound meditation.
There may be some days when you are so stressed, depleted and exhausted that you are unable to hold a mental focus. At these times simply listen to the sounds. When your mind wanders, simply bring your relaxed focus back to the music. There is nothing else to do in this form of listening.

#2 – Here’s an upcoming event I’ve signed up for that I thought some of you may be interested in, as well. In my opinion you can’t go wrong bringing Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle together. And the title seems so apropos :-)…..
What If Your Suffering Is Actually Here to Serve You?
As human beings we have a tendency to rush to judgement and label world events and our life circumstances as “good” or “bad.”
We do it especially when we’re struggling to make sense of a tragedy or hardship – like getting fired, having our heart broken, or receiving a difficult diagnosis. Or, when we have to let go of the way we had hoped and dreamed something would be. We do it because we desperately want some control over things that would otherwise feel random.
But where does that leave us? Grasping to try and control the events happening all around us – especially the ones we have no say in – only leaves us feeling more frustrated and powerless.
In our increasingly chaotic world, even those already on the path to enlightenment may be struggling. After all, it’s difficult to experience joy, peace, and equanimity – let alone to have a sense of purpose and meaning – in a world full of mass shootings, ugly political battles, heart-breaking refugee crises, and senseless acts of terrorism. Or, when challenges hit even closer to home – like dealing with a difficult boss, struggling with a health issue, or discovering your relationship is on the rocks.
If it isn’t always easy for us to maintain our sense of peace, purpose, meaning, and joy when life is going smoothly . . . how do we gain access to them in our toughest, darkest moments?
World-renowned leader in mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, says the first step is to recognize that the angst we feel in our lives and the chaos we experience in the world is actually neither good or bad. Rather, it is an indication that our souls are trying to awaken from the confines of our egos. And right in the midst of our suffering, actually lies our prime opportunity for growth and spiritual evolution.
Transcending life’s challenges – or even its tragedies – isn’t something most of us know how to do. But it is something everyone can learn.
That’s why world-renowned expert in mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, and internationally recognized spiritual teacher and author of the #1 New York Times best-seller The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle, have teamed up to host Beautiful Chaos: How to Find Meaning in a Messy World, an all-new, world-premiere Chopra Center online event on Wednesday, August 3rd at three convenient times.
Join this exciting conversation as two of the great spiritual masters of our time, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle, reveal the simple shifts everyone can take to find and sustain your sense of peace, power, and presence no matter the circumstances of your life . . . and maintain it even in a world filled with a seemingly never-ending news cycle of problems, disasters, pain, and suffering.
There’s absolutely no cost to register or participate. Once registered, you’ll receive an email confirming your spot has been reserved. Closer to the event, you’ll receive specific log-in details so you can participate from any computer, anywhere in the world.
Then, on Wednesday, August 3rd, Deepak and Eckhart will reveal:
- The root cause of all suffering – and what it’s really here to teach us.
- The #1 question to ask yourself when any suffering arises – and what to do to free yourself from it.
- Tips you can use right now to experience peace – even in this intensely paradoxical time where acts of both unconsciousness and consciousness are on the rise.
- How you can use modern technology to bring consciousness and connection into your life – instead of using it to create more disconnection and suffering.
- Ways most of us unknowingly fail to align with the present moment – and how to change that dynamic to then change your life.
- How to use your life with all its challenges and imperfections – as a powerful pathway to higher consciousness and spiritual growth.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to join two world-renowned spiritual masters, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle, for a world-premiere Chopra Center online event, as they reveal the simple, yet powerfully life-changing principles anyone can use to:
- Remain nonjudgmental throughout the events in your life, whether they appear positive or negative – and then notice as the positive events in your life multiply exponentially.
- Understand the connection between your current reality and your higher purpose – and use that connection to effortlessly bridge the gap between the two.
- Instantly alleviate suffering of any kind– while simultaneously using it as a catalyst for your unprecedented personal and spiritual growth.
