EVOLVING THE SOUL
Soul senses attune us to other dimensions
A BIG part of evolving the soul is learning how it communicates with other souls. We hear a lot of talk about people being “soul mates”; for instance, but what does that really mean? Primarily, I think it refers to the ability to communicate without words, to be on one another’s “wavelengths” almost effortlessly. When I was researching my upcoming book, SOUL SENSING: How to Communicate with Your Dead Loved Ones, I was compelled to find some science-backed answers to what form such communications take. We living humans, like almost everything else that sur-
their behavior, because they cannot be observed with our physical senses. Some subatomic particles, for example, can be in two places at once. They can move through solid surfaces, such as walls and closed doors. They can also disappear, then reappear, almost instantly, in another location. Scientists studying the behavior of subatomic matter in Victorian England asked themselves, “What have we seen or heard about that can do all of these things?” And their stunning answer to this was “ghosts!” GHOSTS: THE STORY For millennia, reports of disOF SUBATOMIC embodied souls have occurred PARTICLES in every country on earth, yet These particles are even the behaviors described are all smaller than atoms. They’re so amazingly similar: minute and speedy, in fact, that Continued Page 10... scientists must define them by rounds us in this world, are composed of atoms. They make us appear to be solid, but an atom actually consists mainly of space: a positively charged nucleus that exerts an electrical attraction on one or more electrons in orbit around it. This means that every creature on earth is made up of little more than very fast-moving energy. Thus some physicists have concluded that the answer to what composes our souls is subatomic particles.

not rely on physical stimulation in order to gather information. While our brains can only process about 2,000 of the 400 billion pieces of information our physical senses take in per second, our soul senses can gather and process more. Even more amazing is the fact that matter itself is affected by our perception of it. When we are not looking at an object, for example, its atoms form a wave. But, when we are looking at that same object, our focus causes its atoms to coalesce into something substantial. In other words, our perception of them actually makes them more solid! Thus we, as observers, play an inextricable role in the process of soul sensing. If you’ve ever felt you were being watched, but you could not put your finger on who was watching you or from where, you’ve experienced this form of clairsentience firsthand. The very act of that party’s observation sent signals to your atoms to become more concentrated. 14 www.esswellness.com
The subatomic activity caused by this told your brain, “I’m being watched. I’m not alone here.” Ghost hunters often report getting the “sense” of a presence in the settings they’re investigating, but they can’t document what they’re feeling until they employ electronic equipment and their readings confirm their hunches. This is the nature of the subatomic world all around us, as well as our own subatomic abilities to perceive it. These perceptions are so minute and fleeting that we have to work at making them register in our brains. We must learn to pay attention to them and not just write them off as being products of our imaginations or mere coincidences.
physical ones. Once we accept and become attuned to this subatomic level of ourselves, we open the door not only to telepathic communications, but also to our loved ones in the afterlife. Having lost two parents to death by the time I was 10, I can assure you that such afterlife communications not only greatly help to ease grief, but they better enable survivors to move forward with their lives with the certainty that most human souls do not perish, but continue to be in contact with us on a spiritual level.

EVOLVING THE SOUL
Declutter your thought s lifestyle to become peac
MID OUR crowd of over 700 dancers celebrating Luni Gras in Henderson, Louisiana, the Cajun band’s lead vocalist stared at his phone’s lit screen (still playing the accordion) and blurted, “We just won a Grammy!” While the band continued, he texted back to Los Angeles, and then finished the song with a reeling riff. All the while his phone was still on and glowing. Information and adverts bombard us 31,536,000 seconds every year. All day long information flies through the air and into our homes, literally, even if we’re not wired. Every-
thing is sent by signals that penetrate the walls of our homes, vehicles, and bodies. The effects are always there—new emails, more friend requests, vids of the latest global conundrums, jpgs of social outings, countless televised programs. Net result? Clutter and distraction, affecting the flow of qi (energy), bogging down our minds and lives. CLEANSE YOUR LIFESTYLE OF UNDUE CLUTTER
De-cluttering impacts our mindset and surroundings, improving the energy flow and quality of life. Simply organizing and letting go validates the realization that things don’t have to be how they have been. Yet, how do we begin the process?
First, recognize that a lifestyle cleanse is rewarding and liberating, eliminating the nonessentials that hold you captive. Your internal clutter—the worries, should haves, buried emotions, attachments, and repetitive stories that populate your mind—robs you of clarity and enthusiasm for your goals. Letting go means choosing to move your attention away from (and loosen the grip of ) a non-essential thought, mindset, or feeling every time it arises. You choose what you want to nurture with your most precious resource, your attention.

ASK YOURSELF SOME IMPORTANT QUESTIONS
• Next, while breathing slowly and deeply, take each thought pattern, emotion, item, and memory that holds your attention and pose these questions: • Do I need this? Is it essential or redundant and burdensome? • Does it serve me? Is it helpful, useful, and joyful or irritating, harmful, and toxic? • Am I attached to it? Can I let it go, being open to new experiences? • By holding on will a memory perpetuate? Does the memory serve my goals? • If I’m uncomfortable or confused, not ready to let go, what will tip the scale? If you feel anxious, stop being hard on yourself and instead ask these questions: Is that situation relevant now or am I blowing it out of proportion? Was that situation in or out of my control? Is there unfinished business that needs to be addressed? What is in my control

EVOLVING THE SOUL
Know your Soul as the Christ Light within
ROM READING my books, people have asked me if the soul is real or a myth. Religion teaches that we have a soul but a soul that cannot be understood because it can be destroyed by God (Matthew 10:28). This style of teaching can only assume that after death, the soul, the “I” in “self,” can no longer perform, thus, leaving you in limbo where you are either waiting to reunite with your body in some new world in which death is eradicated or that you no longer exist because of bad behavior. I have been a businessman for over 41 years and yet, my greatest passion has always been with the mystical side of life. I have written three books on the subject of Earth’s beginning, 24 www.esswellness.com
its ending, and I have revealed the true core essence of God, Satan, humanity, sin, and the true nature about how to arouse the soul in manifesting miracles to experience. However, in the way religion portrays the soul, no wonder we struggle over the definition of it more than the physical body housing it.
THE SOUL IS REAL, WELL, ALIVE My friends, the soul is real, alive, and well, and the best part, the soul cannot be destroyed for it is one’s completeness as a sovereign self-governing Godlike being where one’s wisdom highlights one’s consciousness not to be ruled, enslaved, or controlled by beliefs systems and rituals. Once we awaken to the wisdom that we are a divine human and that our core essence is of spirit
first, before time, space, and physicality, the first thing we awaken to is the fact that our soul is the “Christ,” thus we are equal to God and not less than. We have completely forgotten that we were born of spirit first and not of physical form. Hence, the first explosion was not the creation of the universe or earth. It was the implosion and explosion of the Spirit of One, breaking up into gazillions upon gazillions of pieces of her, where each piece was gifted the same divine creative abilities as the Spirit of One. Because of how the Spirit of One shattered into pieces of herself, the Spirit of One is no longer, for she became her children in expression. And, that is when we, the children of the Goddess, beContinued Page 28...

We all have the power within ourselves to gift to ourselves whatever we would love to experience, be it rich, poor, health, or non-health. These experiences are all hidden under our strong belief in a God that is not there, in this opposing energy of two, and in the belief that our mind is the recipe for freedom. Let it be known, when one applies the mind, hope, and prayer as the formula for receiving miracles then they will actually become the prevailing force in one receiving and living out those miracles.
