Lao Tzu says, “The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness.” I wondered how I would do that. What steps can I take to understand and dwell in higher dimensions of consciousness?
Meditation is a basic step
You grow yourself from your inside out by listening to the voice within. Leaning to recognize it, and interpret it.
Meditation is the perfect starting place. Each day, set aside five to ten minutes of personal stillness. You can begin by simply focusing on your breath and learn to still your body mind. In. Out. In. Out. No mind. Just being. You can choose to repeat a mantra. Aum (ohm) is the universal seed symbol. Experiment with hand postings (mudras) See my video “The Mudra That Made a Difference.”
Develop your own method for daily stillness. No mental chatter. Just simply being.
Mindfulness helps you see deeper dimensions
When I eat mindfully, I taste in more detail. When I listen with my full attention, I hear things I otherwise would have missed. When I perform a task with mindfulness, each step becomes a sharing of my soul.
What you believe emerges
Rumi says, “Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all of yourself.” That puts me in charge of my life experience. That makes what I believe I deserve and what I believe is possible the cornerstone of what my life looks like.
Connect with group consciousness
Joining your personal energy and focus with a group of people focusing on the same purpose is an extraordinarily powerful way to help balance our world. There are many groups offering that opportunity. www.gaiafield.net offers a daily worldwide three-minute meditation.

Learn to listen within
Mind-mapping, sitting in silence with pencil and paper focused on one problem, one change, is a remarkable way to grow from within. Journaling is another powerful way to hear the voice within. When you uncover something new in these quiet times, record how you feel about that. Your emotions are strong guides that help you make aligned choices.
Let your spiritual practice focus and clarify your intentions
Move into your chosen forms of spiritual practice with mindfulness and gratitude. Savor the ceremonies you create. Embrace each moment as a sacred moment, a rich, full, come-from-within conversation with the intuitive, on-target, wise voice within.
Begin today to expand your experience of life by looking from your inside out.
