Excerpt from “Master Teachings of HOPE, Volume 1"

Chapter 1: Experiencing Beyond Senses

by Johanna Kern

Your life is not an accident or a mistake. Your life has a purpose.

Here we are. We are thinking, feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, sensing, breathing and… What else are we doing?


We are knowing either in relation to the above, or we are knowing because we have inherited some of the knowing with our genes. Our ancestors learned things that we don’t have to learn. We already know these things because of what we call Evolution.

As we keep evolving our knowledge grows. And – as we keep evolving – we find more and more ways of experiencing our-selves.

It used to be that human Evolution was thought of as a means to populate the planet and ensure that, as the human race, we survive.

Now Evolution more and more is referred to as the expansion of consciousness. A way to experience ourselves on different, more advanced levels than merely through our five senses. And it isn’t a new concept at all. Through centuries there were individuals, or sometimes even entire societies, whose primary focus was on such progress.

Those individuals (or societies) were often described as being “ahead of their time” or “highly evolved”. To this day, researchers and archaeologists keep finding artifacts, structures, tools or written messages, which speak of highly developed minds that created them.

Whether we are aware of it or not, we continue to develop – for the purpose of the ongoing expansion of what we truly are: consciousness.

Our minds tend to work in a particular way: we think in a way we are used to. That is actually not so bad, when it comes to remembering or analyzing things where that type of logic is required. However, when we want to expand our consciousness, and live the life we want, instead living the one we don’t want – we need to train our mind to be able to use spiritual logic, not only the sensory kind.

There are 7 Powers, 7 aspects to our existence, which are affecting our Evolution.

The 7 Powers maintain the existence of consciousness, at the same time enabling its experience of itself. They create and “rule” the material and spiritual world in which the consciousness experiences its development.

The 7 Powers can be observed externally as energies creating the world we live in, and as the internal processes we go through during our Evolution.

With the help of this volume, you will learn how to be in tune with them, so that you can evolve to your fullest potential, and live the life you were meant to live – happy and free.

When we are aware of our development, and in tune with the 7 Powers, our life becomes an incredible adventure filled with True Power, Success, Happiness, Abundance, Health and Freedom from any limitations.

Our life can be the best thing that has ever happened to us. Our life can be beautiful.

In order to help you to expand your mind capacity, I’d like you to try the following Inner Journey. It is designed to have a different effect on your mind than some audio recordings (such as guided meditations), which are usually used for such purposes.

You will be asked to keep switching back and forth between reading (sensory perception) and internal experiencing (spiritual perception). It is an excellent way to prompt your brain to start using its otherwise “asleep” parts, sharpen your intuition and induce your “third eye” vision (more about that later).

During the following Inner Journey, you will be guided to experience the feeling of happiness in its pure form.

That’s right. Not the feeling of excitement, satisfaction or joy, which are simply emotions you feel in particular moments.

Let yourself explore the happiness that is, because it is. With no conditions at all, and present only as a result of you experiencing yourself as the consciousness that you are.

You will do this journey in two parts. The first one is meant to help you to adjust to a new way of perceiving. In the second part you will try to search for the feeling of pure happiness, and that part will be given to you at the end of this chapter.





Find a comfortable position so that your body can feel fully relaxed with no strains on any of its parts.

Now take a few deep breaths, before you go on. Take as long as you wish, or need, to read the following. Remember, there is no rush. You’ll get where you are meant to get, in the most appropriate time for you.

Experiencing is not about rushing things. Experiencing is about experiencing.

Keep breathing slowly, and peacefully.

Step 1:

In a moment I will ask you to close your eyes, and open them again to continue to read, after you imagine the following:

You are at the bottom of your “third eye”. For those who are not sure what the “third eye” is: concentrate on the point between and slightly above your eyebrows. There is an energy center there (more about energy centers later), and we call it the “third eye”.

Imagine that in some unexplained, safe and pleasant way you are at the bottom of your own “third eye”. Let’s not think about whether it is possible or not. It’s not the point. Just trust your own process and imagine that.

NOTE: If you are by any chance a person who cannot easily picture images in your mind – try to feel what’s happening instead of trying to imagine it.

Open your eyes to come back to reading after you have completed the task.

Close your eyes NOW.


Good. You have opened your eyes. Keep breathing slowly, and deeply. Here is what to do next.

Step 2:

In a moment you will close your eyes to imagine the following, and after that you will open your eyes to read further.

A: Imagine that you are still at the bottom of your “third eye”, and that colorful clouds of energy surround you, constantly moving and swirling.

B: With your eyes closed, you turn your eyeballs to the left, as far as you can (do it really).

C: Imagine that you see a tunnel there, on the left. Step forward with no hesitation, and walk inside the tunnel. Its walls are made of dark blue energy, looking like swirling dark blue clouds.

D: Keep walking forward until you see the end of the tunnel. Don’t leave the tunnel yet. Stop here, and open your eyes to continue reading.

If you want to read the above again, to better remember how to do this step – do it, as many times as you wish. There is no rush.

You are not being judged for how well or how fast you do the steps.

When you are ready: close your eyes NOW.


Good. You have opened your eyes. If it worked for you this far, you may continue with this Inner Journey. If it didn’t – either try it again, or skip doing it entirely for now. You may continue to read through steps 3 and 4, but don’t go any further. Put aside this volume and come back to it later today or tomorrow, or when you feel you are ready to do it again.

It is important to complete this Inner Journey before reading further in this volume.

It is important that you practice experiencing and trying new ways of perceiving, instead of acquiring the knowledge only via your mind.

Take your time. Take as much time as you want.

You are progressing with your own speed. That speed is appropriate for you.

Keep breathing slowly, and peacefully. Remember to remain in a comfortable position.

Step 3:

If you are ready to do so, you will close your eyes again to imagine the following:

A: You are leaving the blue tunnel. It is a very pleasant feeling, as if you had been caressed with love.

B: Next imagine yourself outside the tunnel.

C: Imagine that you have just arrived at a very far “corner” of the Universe, and all around you there are colorful and shapeless clouds of energy.

When you are ready: close your eyes NOW.


Good. You have opened your eyes. Let us continue.

Keep breathing, slowly and deeply.

Stay comfortable. All is well.

Step 4:

A: Close your eyes and imagine that you will now develop a special vision, allowing you to see past the colorful clouds and see many places at once.

B: Turn your eyeballs to the left and, and with your left index finger touch the place just above your eyebrows, where your “third eye” is located in your forehead (do it really).

C: Imagine that this gesture caused a little spark in your heart. Then put down your arm.

D: Imagine that the little spark makes things around you brighter, and enables you to see what you couldn't see before.

When you are ready: Close your eyes NOW.


Good. You have opened your eyes. You’ve completed Part 1 of your Inner Journey.

How did it feel? Was it a bit disorienting when you were switching back and forth from reading to internally experiencing? Was it a bit uncomfortable? Perhaps even difficult? Was your mind trying to control your internal experiencing and give it some explanation, or any analogy to anything that you have previously experienced or learned about?

Our mind tends to operate in a particular way: it reasons based on what it already knows, applying its old patterns to new situations.

On the other hand, when we follow so called “guided meditation” – listening to an audio recording with our eyes closed – our mind tends to passively follow the instructions, not really learning new ways of operating. Therefore such guided meditations are best for relaxing and reprogramming our subconscious, but don’t allow our conscious mind to learn new ways of perceiving.

We will come back to this Inner Journey later but now let’s talk more about consciousness.
