Twenty-three years before the thought of this book even entered my consciousness, I was forewarned of its forthcoming existence. While driving home late one evening, I inadvertently tuned in to a radio station featuring a psychic. Because I had never heard a psychic before, I was intrigued by the accuracy of this man's responses to the intimate questions people posed, so when I arrived home, I, too, placed a call. The psychic answered my question, and then added something that piqued my curiosity: I was going to do something "exciting" later in my life. Upon hearing that statement, the skeptical me wondered, "Okay, is this one of his pat' statements? One that could never be proved as having substance?" I implored him to define that "something" more specifically. His reply? "I would discover its meaning when I was supposed to.'" Hmmm . The intrigue did not end there, however. This message was merely the first of many strikingly similar messages I would receive over the next ! thirteen years. That is, until I received another with far greater significance that explained that "something."
What precipitated these messages? At the core of my being I have always felt that there had to be more to life that something was "wrong with this picture." As I observed the world around me, I saw so much pain, anguish, and suffering and always wondered why it occurred in the lives of some and not others. And this despair was not relegated to one socioeconomic class. Quite the contrary, it permeated all levels of society the "haves" and the "have-nots." The answer eluded me. I continued to ask "why, why, why?"
You have probably heard the phrase "Seek and you will find." Well, my seeking began to produce curious findings. Late one evening a friend of mine called and asked if I would accompany her the following day to an appointment she and another friend had previously made with a psychic. Her scheduled friend had just canceled and she desperately wanted to see this man, but was afraid of going alone. Although I was a bit uncomfortable with the notion of having someone tell me "the future" once again, I conceded when her pleading became unrelenting. "What the heck," I thought, "Life's an adventure! After all, nothing "bad" happened after my first episode with a psychic, right?"
Well, this meeting was indeed an adventure, for in the midst of our session, this man abruptly stopped and announced that he was receiving an urgent message for me from a group of teachers. Hello...?!? I had no idea what he meant and felt that this experience was becoming a bit too weird for my taste. However, my uneasiness was soon dispelled when he implored me to write down what he was receiving before he lost it. The following was the message I received on that fateful day:
"Things only happen when you make them happen. To let go and surrender is to let things happen to you. You have free will and must set things in motion. Planet Earth is on the verge of destructive power in the wrong hands. Things will only change when people change. To raise people's spiritual consciousness is the task at hand. It can only begin there and be demonstrated as such. There is much work to do. Begin by helping others become aware. You have the gift. Use it or it will be wasted. This is your Mission. DMA [Dimensional Mind Approach a course I was then taking that dealt with the multi-dimensions of the mind] is your first step. Everyone's "universal truth" they espouse is holy unto them. Formulate your own truth, live by it, share it, and teach it. That is your Mission. To blend the psychological awareness of your past with the awareness of the reality of the future is the key. While men are building new and beautiful skyscrapers, energy should be channeled into con! sciousness into this world. They are blind make them see. Various civilizations that were highly technical, fell. When there is technology without the awareness of God, it cannot work. God is before tech-nology, and channeling the power properly will benefit and evolve mankind. It is time the time is now for these events to happen. They happen only with individual people. That is the task at hand."
I had no clue what this message meant it was totally beyond my com-prehension. However, I knew it meant something because of the haunting reference to the DMA course I was enrolled in, so I tucked that little piece of paper safely away. As the years passed, I continued to receive messages, all clues that led to the unraveling of this mystery, until one day I threw my hands up in surrender and uttered "All right, already. I'll do it'!" (I was afraid. I didn't know what "it" was, but I also never wanted to say "I coulda, woulda, shoulda.") The result? This book: my "Mission." Read it, and you may never look at life the same way again.
In sincerity, Lauren
