A few years ago a talented writing teacher taught me that people appreciate personal experiences. I had an issue with that because I was never interested in such literature; with the exception of some metaphysical topics which are close to my heart, such as conscious out of body travel and past/in-between life regressions.

For example, a biography or auto-biography of anyone—no matter what they had done in life or how well known they were— was of no interest to me. So I found it hard to write from that perspective because I didn’t enjoy reading from it.

At least with a past life regression there are moments shown which relate to the persons health and life as pieces of a puzzle form; it’s just more interesting for me to take a look back at times portrayed differently — the powers that be tend to re-write the truth to fit their needs, so much of what we know of history is not entirely correct.

It can therefore be a learning experience to go through life outside of this one.

I started reading Kevin Cruickshank’s autobiographic, Walking in Light, about a year ago. I couldn’t get through it. Even though Kevin is a very gifted psychic medium from New Zealand, there was just too much every day stuff surrounding his psychic moments that made it slow for me. This didn’t mean the quality of his book was bad, as the problem was definitely me.

Perhaps I have seen too many human lives, whether that may mean I have lived them or that I am connected to a larger part of me that has. Sometimes I get that innate sense that I have “been there and done that.” This is somewhat similar to how I tend to not say too much in terms of spiritual wisdom, as I have seen, or sensed, it already said so many times before — I feel like I am repeating myself; myself being everything, just like we all are.

A lot of the time opinions are given in blogs and articles online and that usually takes place beyond the media, as good reporters don’t express opinion, just facts —unless it’s an opinion piece. I do think that opinion matters more when the person giving it is not providing an opinion solely based upon facts though, but upon intuition, especially if they are clearly connected to their higher self.

A stream of consciousness is one way to label that link established to the universal mind of ours which somehow manages to let words flow, sometimes on topics that may just end up being prophetic.

I’m still young but I guess what makes me interesting is that I have had a wide range of experiences that are not just metaphysical, but also more practical in nature, those that have made me who I am today. When I say life based, I mean those which I have had to struggle and suffer through, as they tend to be our best learning moments on a spiritual level.

But one metaphysical experience, one of my earlier ones, happened around 2010, seven years ago. This was two to three years after I had begun to “wake up.” This was different to other mystical moments I have had as it happened with my eyes open and was part of what I visually saw, not something which you might see through your third eye, in a meditative state or even out of body while being somewhere completely different.

At the time I was renting a three bedroom pole home right next to the bush in North Gosford, near Sydney in Australia. While I lived alone I had my two cats with me, Beezle and Xabbu.


XabbuI was in the bath one night not long after commuting home from work—an hour and forty five minute train ride and 25 minute walk (I never liked living close to Sydney city)—and was practicing viewing my aura.

I had only tried this a few times before, where I would hold my right hand up above me, with a white wall behind, and then blur my eyes and look to the side slightly.

I was doing this for at least a good five minutes and I wasn’t expecting much, or anything, which was part of my problem I think back then, and all of a sudden I saw beyond the usual grayish outline that I had always observed around my body, in this case my hands and a color suddenly appeared.

My heart raced as that happened as it was completely new to me, and so real, as with most things we tend to fear what we have not been through. I first saw green surrounding my hand, and it was very strong and real. Then in addition to that, blue started to appear, both completely following the form of my fingers and palm.

I was so happy to have achieved that goal as I knew anyone could teach themselves to see their aura of the body, but did I really believe that back then? It just took a lot of dedication and work, but for me it actually came rather quickly. In comparison, it took me six weeks of daily exercises to have my first conscious out of body experience.

The problem with having many abilities is that you need to harness them with regular practice. Through experience from actively using ability, you begin to slowly master it and come to understand its intricacies, such as with the aura you need to learn what the colors relate to and why they change frequently. You may also eventually begin to see the thought forms within the auric layers, relating to those regular patterns of thought that a person returns to often.

I never followed up and continued on using this new found ability as I had other interests at the time, especially conscious out of body exploration.

One way to think about all these metaphysical skills, such as tapping into the akashic to do a reading, remote viewing, connecting with guides to hear information, and channeling as examples, they all take practice.

Some people come into this life with an innate ability activated and already there for them to use; they are pretty much forced into using it, and that is usually part of their planned path and soul contract in life. But those who don’t have that ability naturally form can actually learn and master it, if they really wish to do so. With most of these abilities we can do a lot of inner work to make it easier to strengthen and activate them, so it may take a while to finally get there and use said abilities.

The inner work is all about unblocking our many energy centers, including our seven primary chakras, so we can connect not just into the other side, but beyond any energy that was in our way.

Think of Olympic medalists — it takes a great deal of training to build upon their selected sport. That training can be a daily occurrence and that is what it takes to train a psychic based ability, including something like astral projection to reach those out of body experiences. Whatever it is, for some people it will be quicker and for others faster.

Don’t give up on what you consider important, whether it’s something you want to get better at, or you want to manifest and bring into your life.

Beautifully written, Laron! Well placed wisdom in time with the changing of the nodes.

Laron, thanks for the little window showing a little extra about who you are on the inside. I loved the part about stream of consciousness, as that is how I experience it. I don't channel another entity, but I psychically see images (brought in through an active third eye); I see words imprinted across my view screen (last week I saw "creosote" and then a few days later had an incident with wood lacquer poisoning – perfect example of precognition). I actually see the word as it is spelled, and in this case heard the word as it is spoken. That is clairaudient and clairvoyant. A recent fleeting vision I had within the last week was of a dragon's head looking directly at me. It wasn't your Western dragon with wings. It was a celestial dragon of the Chinese mystical variety, with streamers hanging off its face, blue-grey-green scales, eyes of the same colour looking penetratingly at me; teeth (very awesome, ripping sort of teeth); long sinuous neck going off to a slightly rounded torso; not too much glistening – more the occasional silvery fleck such as in fish scales when light hits them. But the utter, heart-scudding realisation for… Read more »


Thanks for the reminder Laron. 🙂 I really need to start practicing OBE/AP again. I really miss it. I almost "unlearned" it. Cannot even say I had one decent (meaningful) projection this year. As synchronicity wants it I was reminded also yesterday of this by a forum friend in an OBE forum asking me via pm why I was so "quiet" in recent months on OBE forums, I just felt not motivated to do so because I had 'lost it'. I will try to take it up again because actually I always <3ed it.

But the utter, heart-scudding realisation for me was that it was cold-blooded.

Hailstones Melt was this dragon a part of you in some place and time? perhaps forgotten?

Not sure where that came from or why I am asking you that…:rolleyes:

Lila Hailstones Melt was this dragon a part of you in some place and time? perhaps forgotten? Not sure where that came from or why I am asking you that…:rolleyes: Lovely Lila, I am sure that is the right question to ask! I have already accepted a Saurian (dinosaur type) as one to integrate. The hardest thing to accept about this dragon is the cold-blooded aspect. But I think that is an aspect that we all will have to face and acknowledge as we become familiar with ancient races – they are not all warm and cuddly, and whilst definitely spiritual beings, perhaps they do not follow the same pathway to soul integration that we may have been shown as humans. Perhaps, as members of the terrestrial and/or non-terrestrial human family of light the light side of the equation attracts us as it equates to love. Our human hearts and bio-systems were created to channel, and transform and transmute other energies such as fear into the all-embracing one of love. Many of us have not truly known love, as that only becomes possible when one becomes capable of self-love. Whether that dragon loves himself is a question for eternity. I,… Read more »

Talking of negative and positive polarities, I met a young person yesterday who epitomised the soul journey as it is being lived today, (at warp speed compared to centuries where soul progressions sometimes took many lifetimes). She is a young man of 22 years old, who is currently mid-term in a gender transition. I found her scenario very interesting because I am awake, and can sit back and observe taking into account the background of all I have been awakened to. I have a new job situation (still work for the dole, but I am at a new venue, and crocheting garments for children at foster homes). This young wo/man is in the same work for the dole situation, but blocking and making quilts. I was saddened to hear she is completely estranged from both her parents. I know that she has a soul contract with them, and is probably in their lives to offer them an opportunity to find and express unconditional love. In the meantime, she is completely on her own except for her female partner (apparently she does not yet realise she is completely supported by the Universe and seen and unseen beings who love to help… Read more »

The hardest thing to accept about this dragon is the cold-blooded aspect..

:)I have always found a great clarity in approaches that some would call 'cold-blooded' or 'practical' and have also found that we tend to value such approaches at times and see them as threatening in others. I recall an episode of the old TV show MASH that explored this in the form of the main character (Alan Alda) falling in love with a local woman whom he initially admired for being practical. When her situation changed and she remained 'practical' in an attempt to survive in a very tough situation that took her away from him, he was not so gung-ho about her practicality:fp

Hello my friends, Omg I had not seen this one before, sorry, I know I have been very disconnected lately. I am spending most of my time offline, except when I do some healing work with my partner. I am hoping to come back soon enough though. First of all, I find your article very interesting Laron and I consider so much of my spiritual growth based on so much that I have read directly from other people, all kinds of personal experiences from others, from younger people to older people. The value I see in this is that if for example someone who speaks about something in particular and the information is spread, a way to really know if what this person says really can be generalized or not is precisely to know through personal experiences how much it can be true or not. In the end that is what makes life interesting, the uniqueness of each soul spark. 🙂 As for your dragon experience Hailstones Melt I find these kinds of experiences not so uncommon. I have had before experiences with all kinds of beings that look and feel either negative or positive, but from the negative ones,… Read more »

…PS and super important. I still have to finish writing Part 3 of the last articles I shared here, related to our spectrum of aspects. In that one, there is an emphasis on doing inner child work and shadow work constantly because not only do we help ourselves in out current incarnation but such practices also allow for more aspects from other timelines to come to us for integration, even if they are not human. As weird as it might sound, and maybe not many or no one has ever mentioned this, but I am finding it very useful not only to do inner child work for myself as a human being, but also for these non-human aspects. One can hold in one's arms in meditation a baby dragon for example, or a baby Lycan, a baby Lyran…etc, just whatever comes to us, it is just the same somehow. Some very ancient creatures naturally had lives much more based on survival, so this is a really useful way to clear the lower realms of creatures, especially if they belong to our souls, and even from other souls we can assist them. The basis of all healing work is always to… Read more »
