Now I was ready to put my findings into writing. Rather than write one more academic book, I decided to use the structure of the novel. I decided it was more powerful to show the occurrence of real Spiritual shifts in consciousness with an engaging character’s journey. I hoped people might relate to him by realizing the similarity of these events to what they were experiencing at the same time in their lives. The result was THE CELESTINE PROPHECY, the book that began the discussion of nine Spiritual experiences or Insights which each of us seemed to be discovering en masse.
It was during this time that Synchronistically I was introduced to Salle. Immediately, she brought new and exciting ideas to my life including how she believed the book could be released to the world. We found a deep spiritual connection and soon married in her mother’s home, happy to start a life together. Through a series of incredible Synchronicities, we decided to self-publish The Celestine Prophecy. All packed up in my Honda Accord with hundreds of books, we set out on an adventure traveling the US, giving them away to bookstores as we were passing through. Over time, we watched in amazement as our process fueled a pass-a-long effect that exploded all over the country.
Why did this happen? I believe it happened because The Celestine Prophecy worked as clarification, in that the story represented a rise in the Spiritual consciousness many of us were pursuing at the very same time. Later, we handed the book over to a larger publisher. In seventh heaven we watched as it went on to be the bestselling American book in the world for two years, published in over 35 countries.
As time proceeded, I observed further developments in human Spiritual awareness. In a subsequent book, THE TENTH INSIGHT, I sought to demonstrate how we were entering the tenth step-up in consciousness. This time we were pushing beyond the restrictions associated with death, and opening up to the reality of the Afterlife. I attempted to explain why the experience of visitation from a recently departed loved one is still the most often reported Spiritual experience in the world.
Near Death Experience (NDE) research was showing us that death was a natural transition to the heavenly realm, and life would continue on to new adventures. Suddenly, we could better grasp our Spiritual consciousness in daily life because death was no longer frightening.
In the book that followed, THE SECRET OF SHAMBHALA, I argued that yet another breakthrough was taking us into an even higher level of recognition: an Eleventh Insight. Written at the beginning of a new decade (2000s), this Insight added another expansion of the Mind.
Now I was finding certainty in the power of the mind and how this helps us to create a positive world. By exploring this inner power, widely known as prayer or intention, I discovered our creativity to be born of the soul, not the ego. The Universe is designed to respond to faithful affirmations and gratitude best of all.
In 2011, the last book in the Celestine Series was published, THE TWELFTH INSIGHT. This book described another level of Consciousness we were reaching toward: The full realization of the self-evident Karmic design of the Universe, which revolves around giving. Giving is the great activator of a fortunate, productive, purposeful life – including reaching a secure, financial well-being in uncertain times.
Furthermore, by getting into alignment with this design, you set the stage for the complete integration of all these steps into a sustained higher consciousness that works automatically.
This last Insight, I have to say, brings this story to the present and leaves me so excited as I hope for our future. Think about where we are…in this new era, we are developing the capability to download the highest form of our Spiritual intelligence. We are learning to operate every day guided by the Divine part of ourselves. Trusting our Intuitions and following Synchronicity will in turn lead us to find who we are and where we want to go. Further, as we develop these abilities, we will find our personal mission as it reaches towards impacting a better world.
Each one of us now has to integrate this full experience into our daily lives, and hold this vision in our RELATIONSHIPS, SPIRITUALITY, FINANCIAL ENDEAVORS, AND HEALTH CHOICES.
