Travels through the Silence of the Soul

Within the silence of the soul you find the answers to all things and you open yourself up to hear guidance from source.

There are many ways to get to that silence from trances, lucid dreaming, meditation, to mention a few. It is hard to believe that there are still people out there who deny this concept and yet, most of histories highest achieving scientists, philosophers and inventors practiced this technique to garner Insight and guidance.

Let’s look at a few of these famous people:

Nikola Tesla

Modern society owes a lot to Nikola Tesla.

Inventor Nikola Tesla was born in July of 1856, in what is now Croatia. He came to the United States in 1884. The Serbian-American scientist's inventions led to the radios and power grids used today. Over the course of his life, Tesla registered some 300 patents under his name, and traces of his inventions can be found in many modern-day devices, including in some unexpected places, such as remote-controlled boat toys and letter-shaped neon lights.

Some of Tesla's ideas were just too revolutionary to fathom or were so bizarre that they were ridiculed by other scientists. Some of Tesla's theoretical inventions, such as a "death ray" weapon and force field, existed only in science fiction.

But in the 71 years since Tesla's death, some of the eccentric inventor's ideas have come to pass

In 1899, during the time Tesla spent in Colorado Springs, Colorado, experimenting with high-frequency electricity and wireless telegraphy, Tesla picked up peculiar radio signals on his instruments. He believed the signals were extraterrestrial in origin.

"The changes I noted were taking place periodically and with such a clear suggestion of number and order that they were not traceable to any cause known to me. I was familiar, of course, with such electrical disturbances as are produced by the sun, Aurora Borealis, and earth currents, and I was as sure as I could be of any fact that these variations were due to none of these causes," Tesla wrote in Collier's Weekly in 1901.

"The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another," Tesla wrote.

The scientific community didn't believe Tesla had made contact with aliens, but later, it was suggested that he may have picked up cosmic radio waves, a phenomenon that was not known at the time. Or, it's possible that Tesla's sensitive instruments had received the radio messages that Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi was transmitting from Europe.

Tesla described that on many occasions he would experience intense flashing lights, which were then followed by equally intense creativity and clarity. He said that while in that state of mediation, he could see an invention in his mind. He was able to rotate the image and take it apart so that he would know how to build it.

Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci (April 15, 1452 to May 2, 1519) was a painter, sculptor, architect, inventor, military engineer and draftsman — the epitome of a “Renaissance man.” With a curious mind and keen intellect, da Vinci studied the laws of science and nature, which greatly informed his work. His ideas and body of work have influenced countless artists and made da Vinci a leading light of the Italian Renaissance.

Leonardo da Vinci may well have been the greatest inventor in history, yet he had very little effect on the technology of his time. Da Vinci drew sketches and diagrams of his inventions, which he preserved in his notebooks, but either he lost interest in building them or was never able to convince one of his wealthy patrons to finance construction of his designs. As a result, almost none of da Vinci's inventions were built during his lifetime. And, because he never published his diagrams, nobody else knew about them until his notebooks were discovered long after his death.

a Vinci's designs were spectacularly ahead of his time. If they had been built, they might have revolutionized the history of technology, though many of them may have been impossible to build with the tools available in the 15th and 16th centuries. In recent years, however, engineers have begun to construct models of da Vinci's amazing machines and most of them work.

As an invention, the ball bearing doesn't seem all that impressive, but much of modern technology depends on it. Ball bearings make it possible for drive shafts to rotate, for goods to roll along ramps in a factory or store, and for mechanical devices in general to operate. Other drawings were the idea of a parachute. Da Vinci, who was fascinated by the idea of human flight, conceived his parachute as a way for people to drift gracefully through the air. Its pyramid-shaped framework was draped with cloth. As da Vinci wrote in his notebooks, it would allow a man "to throw himself down from any great height without suffering any injury." Twenty-first century attempts to build the design suggest that it would have worked pretty much as da Vinci described.

Other amazing inventions sketched by da Vinci include the Diving suit, armoured tanks, self propelled cart, sanitation and the helicopter.

Da Vinci adhered to a radical sleeping habit; he divided his daily sleeping period into multiple parts. This sleeping method is called polyphasic sleep. In fact, polyphasic sleep is referred to the practice of sleeping several times within a 24-hour time frame. Interestingly, da Vinci slept for 15 minutes in every four hours. With this methodology, da Vinci was managed to bring down his total sleep time into 1 ½ hours per day. He was able to save a significant amount of time by adhering to this method. Da Vinci was able to experience a range of benefits because of this polyphasic sleeping habit and maximized his productivity without feeling any tiredness. Some of these breaks he would place a candle holder at the foot of his bed and stare into the flames entering a trance state. He wrote that he found this method very helpful in envisioning his inventions,

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics) . His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.. He is best known by the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.

Einstein published more than 300 scientific papers along with over 150 non-scientific works. His intellectual achievements and originality have made the word "Einstein" synonymous with "genius".

He has developed many theories such Wave–particle duality and Zero-point energy and much more. These theories are being proved with today’s technology.

Albert Einstein famously used thought experiments—experiments carried out in the mind only—to work out complex ideas. Here, watch animations of Einstein chasing a light beam (which helped lead him to his theory of special relativity) and riding an elevator in free-fall (which convinced him that gravity and acceleration are one and the same). Finally, see a visualization of one of the basic concepts of general relativity—that bodies like stars and planets warp the "fabric" of space-time.

So, the next time someone says to you that mediation or inner silence or reaching the Theta brainwave state, is all a bunch of …., remind them of some of these luminaries who used it to change the world.

Reaching Theta

Theta brainwaves correspond to a state of mind associated with dreams and waking dreams, as well as a deep meditative state.

Theta brainwaves are slower than the Beta and Alpha activity we normally have in daily life. They vibrate at between 4 and 8 cycles per second. As mentioned above Theta states are normally responsible for those “Eureka!” moments of well known inventors and scientists. They are highly creative states.

In a Theta state, you tap into the creative and intuitive resources of your mind. When you can consciously control this state of mind, then problem solving and tapping into your intuition becomes much easier. Goal achievement also becomes a much easier and more efficient process.


I like to start with grounding, but it is optional.

Grounding Exercise to Prepare for the Theta State

1. Close your eyes and relax. Take several slow deep breathes. Imagine yourself as a ball of white light in the center of your chest.

2. Travel downward toward the belly, gathering your body consciousness into that ball. The ball becomes bigger and brighter as you gather that consciousness.

3. Travel down through the lower chakras, down into the groin and through the thighs, knees, ankles and feet. You (the ball of light) continue to become larger as you do this.

4. Go through the bottoms of the feet until you’re a few feet into the Earth. Envision the dark cool dirt as you travel through it.

5. Go a few hundred feet deeper into the Earth’s crust. Here you will find a large crystal with veins traveling outward from it. Each of these avenues travel to the old sacred place of the earth and bring back that energy into the crystal.

6. Allow a cord of light to extend from you towards the crystal. Feel the energy from the crystal shoot up into you as the ball of light.

7. Head back up to the bottoms of your feet. Go back up through your feet, ankles, knees, groin and belly. Gather your body consciousness even more.

Now you’re back where you started. Now we will continue with the beginning of the Theta exercise. This part is not optional.

Visualization for Entering a Theta Mind State

1. You are a ball of white light in the middle of your chest. Your eyes are closed.

2. Travel upward toward your neck, gathering your body consciousness into your ball. You, as the ball, are growing bigger and brighter as you do this.

4. Go through the jaw and the head while continuing to gather the body consciousness. Stop at the fontanel (crown) at the top of your head.

5. With a little bit of a pop, exit the fontanel and go three feet above your head. Look around. You are now in a Theta state, but we’re not done yet. We need to reinforce this state of mind.

6. Go up a few hundred feet and look around.

7. Keep going past the sun and the moon and through millions of galaxies.

8. Go past the universe.

9. In the distance is a ball of bluish white light. As you approach it, this ball gets bigger and bigger until it’s right there in front of you.

10. Enter this light. You are in a whole new plane. Keep going through this light until it is all that exists.

11. Let the light wash through you and cleanse all your tension and impurities. Bathe in the light.

As soon as you, as the little ball of light, exited through the crown, you reached a Theta brainwave state. You went up further, past the galaxies, past the universe, into the ball of light to the place where only the light exists. The extra steps in the visualization are to ensure that you are solidly in Theta.

You can use this Theta visualization as a meditation by sitting in the place of light that you entered in the visualization. You can also ask questions to tap into your intuition and solve problems, such as “What do I have to do today to get that job”.

If you practice visualization for manifestation work, you can do your visualizations in the place of light you entered in the exercise. This will enhance your ability to achieve your goal.

When you ask questions or visualize a goal after reaching a Theta state, do not be impatient. Intuitions will come through visual, kinesthetic, “direct knowing” and/or audio channels – but not necessarily right away.

Intuitions may come within a few seconds or minutes, or they may come the next day. They will manifest more quickly with practice. The key is to let go and allow these things to come up.

Do not try to interpret what comes up. Just take note of everything that goes through your mind. Write them down if you must. Let your conscious mind process the information. Then, suddenly, you may have a “Eureka!” moment.

If you want to solidly anchor yourself in a state of mind that is conducive to achieving your goals and really get the most out of the Theta brainwave state, I would recommend a solid meditation practice.

Happy explorations in the Theta state, may all your journeys be enlightening!
