Marie reads a variety of spiritual books and materials and is a student of the Teachings of the Ascended Masters East and West. The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision was given to me by my son-in-law, who knows I enjoy reading spiritual topics. Among the collection of books given, the title and cover attracted my attention, plus the fact that the book is hard-covered. As I began delving into this book, I realized that the author was not only writing a piece of fiction, but conveying aspects of Native American culture and metaphysics as well. James Redfield was raised in rural Alabama near Birmingham. While majoring in Sociology at Auburn University, he studied Eastern philosophies and later received a Master's degree in Counseling.

A new spiritual awakening is occurring in human culture, an awakening brought about by a critical mass of individuals who experience their lives as a spiritual unfolding, a journey in which we are led forward by mysterious coincidences. Noticing Synchronicity. They are always seeking first, to awaken us, and then to allow us to be guided by a spiritual connection to the unfolding of our intended destiny.
Staying in a state of alert expectation concerning the major questions of our lives, or the help we need, increases the frequency of Synchronistic answers.
The secret is remembering, first thing in the morning, to watch for these magical Synchronistic moments. This awakening represents the creation of a new, more complete worldview, which replaces a five-hundred-year-old preoccupation with secular survival and comfort.
This step in consciousness happens when we look back on the spiritual journey of humanity throughout history. We see that we are in a new phase of human progress.
Together, with this insight, we can shape another historical era of inspirational life for generations to come.
We now experience that we live not in a material universe, but in a universe of dynamic energy. Everything extant is a field of sacred energy that we can sense and intuit. Moreover, we humans can project our energy by focusing our attention in the desired direction…where attention goes, energy flows…influencing other energy systems and increasing the pace of coincidences in our lives. It is an energetically connected environment that is spiritually constructed to bring our greatest dreams into fruition.
We begin to fulfill the latest discoveries of Quantum Physics. As we open up to Synchronicity and Intuitive guidance, we realize that we, in fact, we share minds with one another and the Divine. The path to this majestic life -lies NOT in ruling others or taking what we want. When we help others, we karmically begin to attract people into our lives who act the same way; they in turn, help us.
These helpers are also being given intuitive suggestions of how they can help us. We experience their aid as exactly what we need at that very moment to extend our destined flow in life. When we adopt this outlook, and ask ourselves how we can be of service to another, our minds connect more deeply with the Divine mind and our intuitive capacity thus opens up.
As this happens, we receive an intuition suggesting a specific way this person needs information or direct aid. The key is always to seek to be a Synchronicity for others, by giving them just the right information and help they call for at the time of our encounter with them. The wish to help others opens up our Divine connection and strengthens our union with higher intelligence.
We also can prove this reality to ourselves by noticing what happens if we decide to pursue the opposite course in life, and become not a giver but a taker. The same karmic principle is in effect. If we manipulate others or steal energy for our personal gain, we find that we are being treated the same way ourselves. This is not for punishment; it is to allow us to feel what we are doing to others, and come back into alignment with the way the world is designed to work.
By getting into alignment with Karmic design and helping, we attract more desirable, life enhancing connections with others, thereby injecting Synchronicity into our lives. All we have to do is participate. Too often humans cut themselves off from the greater source of this energy and then feel weak and insecure. To gain energy, we tend to manipulate or force others to give us attention and their energy.
When we successfully dominate others in this way, we feel more powerful, but they are left weakened and often fight back. Competition for scarce, human energy is the cause of all conflict between people. Human Control Dramas. When we seek the ethic of giving and not taking from, or manipulating others, we step into consciousness. The dramatics begin to fall away until we can stop ourselves before we ever lapse into such a trap. Insecurity and violence ends when we experience an inner connection with divine energy within, a connection described by mystics of all traditions.
A sense of lightness and buoyancy, along with the constant sensation of love, are measures of this connection. If these measures are present, the connection is real. If not, it is only pretended. The Spiritual Connection. We breakthrough, at least momentarily, to experience a moment that seems to move us past our normal level of consciousness and we sense an ultimate connection.
It could be a peak experience at a house of worship, or through prayer, meditation, music, communing with nature or a host of other points of entry. An experience described by prophets and saints as a greater sense of knowing and wisdom, and the deep emotion of love. The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under stress.
In these times, we can see our own particular way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more constant and we can discover our own growth path in life, and our spiritual mission—the personal way we can contribute to the world.
Sensing A Life Mission. This consciousness brings the strong Intuitions and guides us to our mission in this life. This could fall within any area of human endeavor or in the areas of life from relationships to finding passion in a career education, business, medicine, or government services. It is usually a vague glimpse of our future destiny, one that invokes in us a heightened sense of inspiration and fulfillment. Though somewhat undetermined, our Intuitions can stand as a general goal that will help us understand, and follow, our Synchronistic path and help us move forward.
Knowing our personal mission further enhances the flow of mysterious coincidences as we are guided toward our destinies. First we have a question; then dreams, daydreams, and intuitions lead us towards the answers, which usually are synchronistically provided by the wisdom of another human being.
Following Your Intuition. With our mission in mind, and as our lives move forward, we begin to notice Synchronicities aimed at our ultimate calling. In this buildup of consciousness, we become aware of our Intuitive Guidance at a higher level.
Calculative thoughts are words that run through our minds as we make decisions, as though we are talking to ourselves. Intuitions, however, are not part of our deliberation over a problem or goal. Intuitions come from a superior part of our intelligence.
They naturally appear in the back of our minds as clarifying ideas on how to proceed. In short, they are ideas that sometimes seem too random, spontaneous, and not logical, but upon greater interpretation they can be observed to apply perfectly to the situation at hand.
Once we begin to identify guiding intuitions in this way, we realize how we have been missing them in the past. Once we learn to identify intuitions, we realize how they bring forth Synchronicity another elevation of awareness occurring. First, we receive an Intuitive picture an urge to end or begin something, to solve a problem, or to pursue some line of interest. In this way, following our Intuitions is the key to increasing our Synchronistic Flow and maintaining our flow of destiny.
We can increase the frequency of guiding coincidences by uplifting every person that comes into our lives. Care must be taken not to lose our inner connection in romantic relationships. Uplifting others is especially effective in groups where each member can feel energy of all the others. With children, this is extremely important for their early security and growth. By seeing the beauty in every face, we lift others into their wisest self, and increase the chances of hearing a synchronistic message.
Once we clearly see the process of Synchronicity, what we observe most often is that PEOPLE provide many of our Synchronistic experiences; yet, sometimes others do not feel comfortable talking to us. We find another step-up in consciousness when we grasp the solution to this problem. We must adopt an additional ethic toward others, one which enhances our attitude of giving as we communicate with them. As a result of this, not only is the person lifted into a greater level of experience, they are more likely to intuit some message they have for us.
As we all evolve toward the best completion of our spiritual missions, the technological means of survival will be fully automated as humans focus instead on synchronistic growth. Such growth will move humans into higher energy states, ultimately transforming our bodies into spiritual form, and uniting this dimension of existence with the after-life dimension. Thus, ending the cycle of birth and death. Fulfilling Human Destiny. It works this way: when someone uplifts us we feel it as increased energy because we receive a greater experience with the Divine Mind.
When we return this energy, it moves our heightened energy back into them. Both people doing this creates a hot-house effect back and forth, where both people feel their Divine Connection getting stronger and stronger. When this goes viral, then everyone can quickly identify their life missions and can Synchronistically move to the right place of service. As we embrace a continuous experience of Synchronicity, millions of individuals will be unleashed to follow their destinies — and we will all find a place in the working world, which is in need of freedom from corruption.
In this way, all the institutions of life are moved toward a perfect level of functioning. Capitalism itself, business at every level, food production, the problems of poverty, chemical pollution, and Government regulation will all become enlightened. This enlightened Conscious evolution works because it happens through an effort all at once, replacing the top down efforts by corrupt governments.
The result is an economic development that frees up more and more time for individuals to pursue higher energy states directly with others. Eventually, the basic needs of humanity can then all be automated and provided, as we focus on Synchronicities that will carry us to ever greater spiritual consciousness. Over time, such growth will transform us into a spiritual form and unite our current dimension with the after-life dimension, ending the cycle of birth and death. Each of us comes here on assignment, and as we pull this understanding into consciousness, we can remember a full birth vision of what we wanted to accomplish with our lives.
Furthermore, we can remember a common world vision of how we will all work together to create a new spiritual culture. We know that our challenge is to hold this vision with intention and prayer every day. At this level of expanded consciousness, we become clearly aware of the life and death cycle of humanity.
As this rapid spiritualization continues, the veil between Earth and Heaven begins to part, and we rise to sense and feel those in the afterlife with a new reality. According to polls, the most frequently mentioned spiritual experience is that of having contact with a recently departed loved one.
They are active in our lives on Earth. Our Insight is that departed friends and loved ones are close to us, sending us messages, reminders and uplifting us into our missions. Before we are born, we have a vision of this mission.
