There’s nothing mystical about awakening. Awakening is the process of emerging from confusion and deception and seeing the reality and truths that surround you clearly and precisely. It is like waking up in the morning and seeing the room you’ve been sleeping in, or removing a blindfold to see a reality formerly hidden.

Awakening is achieved partly through education and partly through spiritual training that helps you clear the way so you can connect with your own higher Self. To begin your awakening process, start by reading the books below. Below that, you’ll find articles and other things to explore that will help you both awaken, and build your understanding of it as well.

When have completed the readings below, move on to activation and, finally, connection (i.e. ascension). Note, don’t feel you have to follow a linear path as set out here. Feel free to jump around, but keep in mind, the more advanced materials require terms and concepts you learn here. Our advice is, read through these materials at least once, and do the flashcards to help reinforce LP concepts, before moving on to more advanced levels of study.

The times they are a changin – Bob Dylan

This song is most certainly talking about the collective awakening that was occurring in the 60s and 70s, before The Family, with the assistance of Hollywood and the actor Ronald Reagan, shut it down. As anybody reading these lyrics will attest, we’re living through another “time changing” moment.


This is a story about awakening, by Ben Pritchard. It is an awesome description of what happens during an authentic awakening process. As I say in Rocket Scientists' Guide to Spiritual Awakening, it is not all warm fuzzies and crystal vibrations. When we "wake up," we...

My Guitar Gently Weeps – George Harrison

This song is a lament to the sleeping, unawakened people of the world, confined to Normal Consciousness, unable to wake up, "perverted" and "diverted" from achieving Connection with higher self/Consciousness.  It is beautiful, and deeply saddening at the same time....
