STEP # 9: Raise Your Vibration and Feed Your Spirit With Others (12 Steps to Rise Above & Soar)

Step # 9 in our 12 steps to Rise Above & Soar is to raise your vibration and feed your spirit in community Versace Pas Cher with others.

The thing to remember about this step is that context is everything. For instance, you may think that when you just go to church you are feeding your spirit and raising your vibration. This is not always the case.

I have been in foot-stomping, music making congregations where you can literally feel the spirit of God as a palpable presence of joy. I have been in other houses of worship where candles were lit and there was an awe-inspired silence, a love and a light that could move you to tears. The spirit of God was there in the noise of fun, play, and joy as well as in the silence of love, light, and beauty.

Conversely, I have been to other churches where people sit st adidas nmd r1 pas cher one -faced in pews- bored & apathetic, some looking clandestinely at I-phones, or drawing pictures on the church program.

The first 2 experiences will fulfill on Step # 9. The third will definitely not. It might be a valuable experience. If one listens, one might learn something or have some kind of an insight. But a “going-through-the motions” expression of religion or spirituality will not have a person “Rise Above and Soar” as it is being defined by me in these writings.

Here’s why…

To Rise Above and Soar means by definition that we are feeling great. There is no apathy, no boredom, no lackluster “doing something for the sake of doing.” There is joy. Or there is fun. Or there is play. Or there is love. Or there is Light. Or there is Awe. In short there is an energy of some sort. It is strong and palpable. And it feels GOOD! Moreover, a certain intangible Feel-Good Spirit flows through and around the people involved, and you can definitely feel it, if your heart is open.

When that kind of energy is there, I assert that God is also there. If you’ve ever been in such spiritual situations as I described above, you probably know what I mean, and you probably agree with me. If you have never experienced that kind of a profound community spiritual experience, consider that it may now be time to do so.

Meanwhile if you have ever been in such a profound community experience you must know this one thing… the experience of raising your vibration deepens when it is done in a community of like-minded people. There is something you get by connecting in spiritual experiences with your brothers and sister on this earth that you do not get alone, even in the deepest states of trance or meditation.

Finding spirituality in community is not better than finding it alone. They are just different. And alternating the two kinds of spiritual experiences can only help us each to soar.

As the good book says “Wherever two or more of you are gathered in His Name, there is love.” I will also boldly assert that this gathering was never intended to be one of lackluster boredom and apathy, but rather one of love, light, and joy.

What are the names by which we call “His Name”, as it says above? We may say God, or Allah, or The Great I Am, or The Alpha and Omega, or The Spirit of the Universe, or The Creator, or The Father, or The Mother, or The Great Spirit, or All That Is, or Source, or Prime Creator. And we can go on and on.

We humans have never as a people all united on just one name to call this almighty Source of Everything and Everyone. Perhaps that is as it should be. Because how does one chose one word to describe such and Awesome Power and Presence. We can’t name it. But we sure can feel it!

So in some sense it doesn’t matter what particular name the communities you choose may call this Source of All That Is. Call it what you want; a rose by any other name still smells as sweet. But if those communities you choose are truly searching for a direct and palpable community experience of this Loving Spirit of Good, and if they do things to cause that experience, then you know you have found a good resource for this step.

Here are some kinds of experiences to look at for this step…

Remember this rule of thumb in whatever you choose.

If any group activity feels like love, light, and joy, it is Good. Stay there and enjoy.

If any group activity feels like darkness (fear, anger, pain,) get out of there quick, and never go back.

Native American or Tribal Dancing

Drumming Circles


Singing Bowls

Yoga (In its pure spiritual form, Not Americanized)

Sacred Ceremonies (Buddhist, Earth Mother, etc.)

Choirs (Those that are reverent in nature)

Namaste. And have a great time in communities of loving people.

STEP 8: A PERSONAL CONNECTION TO “SPIRIT” (12 Steps to Rise Above & Soar)

What do I mean when I say that step 8 is a Personal Connection to “Spirit”? That sounds a little weird, doesn’t it?

What I am really talking about here is a “one-on-one connection” to your spirit and also to the “realm” of the other-worldly spirits… which is to say The Realm of God (or Divine Source/Prime Creator) The Angels, The Archangels, and so on. In this step there is no intermediary such as a preacher or a spiritual group doing some kind of activity. It is just you reaching out to experience your spirit, and the spirits of other higher beings that may be out there.

In point of fact, this not only sounds weird… It IS weird.

And yet through the ages miracles have often been achieved through things like deep meditation, sound toning, deep yogic states, certain kinds of music which alter our state of consciousness, and so on. Lots of people through the ages have seen Angels, and even spoken with them. So at some point we may all need to accept the fact… these Ethereal Beings are out there.

Historically it has been through these deeply relaxed states of altered consciousness that various spiritual masters were able to circumvent the lower energies of this planet. And if the legends can be believed, these individuals could even at times overcome the very physical laws of matter. I am talking about people walking on hot coals and not getting burnt, the mind-bending of spoons, telekinesis, and even the Tibetan monks who, as stories say, could sit barely clothed on a snow-capped mountain for hours, and actually melt the snow around them with their own self-induced body heat.

In fact, if these legends can be believed, it was actually through the practice of these deep states of spiritual connected-ness that the so-called “Ascended Masters” were able to actually ascend and move beyond this human existence to some other, higher plane of existence. In western society, the idea of someone ascending right out of this reality sounds crazy. In other societies- Tibetan, Indian (from India), Asian- it is somewhat of a known phenomenon.

Now I am not saying you are going to do some of these practices and float right out of your human existence. As I understand it, in this age of ease and comfort most of us would never have the fortitude, stamina and discipline to practice spirituality as rigorously as the Tibetan or Indian Monks did. And yet we can definitely heighten our existence, and rise above the feelings of suffering, fear and pain, by using some of the practices of the spiritual masters. And that is why this step is so very important.

I myself was always a person who believed that we humans were not the only conscious life in the cosmos. I had friends who channeled, friends who saw ghosts, friends who had been visited by ETs.

And I wished I had psychic abilities too, so I could connect with the various beings out there. But I never did.

Never, that is, until about 6 months ago when I came across this one particular meditation “Diana Cooper & Tim Whilde “Anchor the 12 Chakras.” I did that meditation and something very strange happened. I felt different than I had ever felt before. I decided to keep doing that meditation. I knew something has shifted in me, but I didn’t know exactly what. Here is the meditation I am referring to.

This meditations started a string of occurrences, one powerful resource leading to the next powerful resource, leading to the next, and so on. Doing that meditation regularly, I was soon led to a Meetup Group called “Ancient Awakenings”. (

In that group I learned that there are many people out there just like me, people who know in their hearts that we humans are not the only conscious beings in the cosmos. These people know there are many more beings living ‘just beyond the veil’- beings that we cannot quite see because they live at a much higher vibration, or frequency, than we do. The individuals in the Meetup were channeling the messages of love and light and hope coming from those beings, and sharing it with all of us. A profound experience, I can tell you.


So I began to attend the Sunday Channeling calls regularly, and was soon led to a site where I was educated in how to meet my “Twin Flame”. A Twin Flame is basically another being who, like a human twin, is split off from each of us when our soul is birthed. So we become sort of like soul -twins, very connected in the realms of the heart, mind, and spirit.

It was not hard for me connect to this being. Very quickly I was communicating for the first time in my life with someone who was not of this world. I cannot even begin to describe the joy, the fun, and the profound and unconditional love I have gotten from this being. I am eternally grateful for all that he has taught me. Here is the website for that resource

This may all sound very strange to you. I can tell you that it was strange to me to experience it for the first time in my life. I am 100% sure that these phenomena all occurred out of the opening of my 12 chakras, which I hardly knew I had, and which I certainly never knew were so important.

I did a lot of research after this. I learned about our 12 strands of DNA. I learned that 5 of these 12 strands (congruent with our 12 chakras or energy centers) have lain dormant and inaccessible for many millennia. For some time now mankind has acknowledged only 7 Chakras. I knew of these 7 from yoga. I like everyone else thought that 7 was all there was. Surprise. I learned there are 5 more that have been laying dormant, ready to be reawakened and bring us all a whole lot more power in life!

There is a reason, I learned, that we had lost the use of these chakras, which were supposed to be our birthright. You can research this reason, as it is too complicated for this writing.  

In my research I also learned that we are all being nudged, so to speak, to heal, support and fully open our chakras now, and keep them open. I learned that once we do this by the masses, we will actually start living in the higher frequencies where these beings that we cannot see- the Angels, Archangels, & Ascended Masters- all live.

The lowest dimension where most of these higher beings can comfortably reside or visit, I learned, is the 5th dimension. I learned that once we are all living in the 5th dimension, miracles will begin to happen for us and planet earth. Reclaiming these DNA & chakras, they say, will give us our full God-given, Co-Creational abilities. It will be like a seeming magic, because in the 5th Dimensional world healing the body of illness, walking on water, and multiplying loaves and fishes is child’s play. These ‘miracles’ and more are quite easy, and even commonplace in that realm.   

And so I now perceive that this is probably why Jesus said “Greater wonders than this will you do.” He had obviously found out how to use all 12 of his chakras. And he knew that we could ALL do this some day, just as he did. (I am sorry if I am now shaking up your age-old beliefs of Jesus as a Lord and Master type figure. In point of fact Jesus himself called us his brothers (brethren), and also called us Children of God. So it stands to reason, he was never looking to be deified.)

The next resource I was led to brought the true magic of the chakras home to me in no uncertain terms. It was a book called “The Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth, Book 2.” (You can google this book on Amazon to get yourself a copy.) When I became proficient at doing a sizable amount of the specific exercises that the Tibetan Monks had used to activate their chakras, something called the “5 rites”, I began to Rise Above, like I had never risen before. I felt beyond great. I felt amazing… Colossal!

These days with the 5 rites I literally float on a cloud all day. And in this ‘feel good’ space, good things just come to me. Miracles of synchronicity and serendipity happen, without my even trying.

If you get that book, here is a word of warning. Follow your body’s and your spirit’s guidance as to how many times you do the “spinning” exercises in a day or session. Go slow and steady, if you are increasing your spinning. If you are not careful, I learned, you could overload your central nervous system, and that would not be fun. I suggest you research why and how to use care with spinning.

The next resource I was led to really blew me away. I got a deep understanding about everything I was doing, feeling, and sensing and why. To get the true value of this video, I suggest you watch it after you have used some of the other resources. Doing that first will help you to understand and digest the content in the video. The video is a couple of hours long, but well worth the time.

Our 12 strands of DNA correspond to our 12 Chakras. Meanwhile each of these 12 steps also relates directly to one or more of the 12 Chakras. So as we take these 12 steps we will also be supporting, healing, and growing each of our chakras as well as our DNA.

These 12 steps and their accompanying tools do not substitute for directly opening and activating the 12 chakras. You can do that directly with the Diana Cooper Mediation and also the 5 Rites above.

But all of the other tools from all 12 steps will certainly help!

Namaste. And happy hunting for your other-worldly friends.
