Receptivity to Soul Guidance Retreat

  • Apr 17 – 19, 2020

with Nayaswami Diksha

During this weekend, you will gain an understanding of the 3 levels of consciousness as well as practical ways to move in the direction of soul receptivity.

You’ll learn and experience:

  • The three levels of consciousness and how to recognize them
  • Shifting from a lower to a higher level of consciousness
  • Ways to tune into soul guidance
  • How to meditate to help you tune into soul intuition and solutions to your challenges

Have you ever noticed the different ways you can respond to a challenge in your life? One day the challenge seems insurmountable. All you can think is how unfair it is that you have to deal with it and who is to blame for it. Another day, you might view the same challenge and begin to think of practical things you could do to handle it. And at still another time, you might actually feel grateful that this challenge is forcing you to rise to a higher level of consciousness to meet it.

Though you are one person, you have 3 different levels of consciousness within you, and your life will be colored by where you spend the most time.

  • The subconscious mind is the most resistant to change, the most likely to get caught in negative emotions.
  • The conscious mind is practical and energetic, but can get lost in worries and over-thinking.
  • The superconscious mind—the deepest part of our being—draws on the inspiration of the soul.

Once we realize the signs of each of the levels of consciousness, we can learn to move from one level to a higher level. When we attune to the superconscious mind, we find inspiration and answers to challenges coming in a surprising and tremendously effective way.
