Growing up, my Dad had a machine shop, LAW Engineering. It was run out of an extension of the house we lived in... in rural Texas. My Dad would get huge contracts for the Military Industrial Complex, ex. building the cabinet structures inside the unknown (at that time) Stealth Bomber. He had these big magnets, about the size of a silver dollar. I would sneak into the shop and gather 4 or 5 of these magnets and I'd sit on the kitchen floor for hours just playing with these magnets. I would see how close I could get one to the opposite magnet before they repelled each other. I suppose, in retrospect, it was sort of a visual learning tool for what I would eventually become fascinated with later on in life. I was equally obsessed with tornados, radar, sonar, and anything having to do with the stars. I reckoned that the magnets had some sort of correlation to these things, but I was never allowed to fully dive into the nuts and bolts of this sort of science as a kid.
Instead, my Mom was pushing me in other ways. Performing. I would do little mental experiments with my energy field before I went on stage. I would sort of "power up," before I got in front of the crowd. I would try to connect energetically with every person in the audience. I knew if I made it "personal" then I could win over the crowd and sprinkle some magic sauce over the room.
Unbeknownst to me, at the time this was probably very draining to my physical body. I was sick all of the time. Not your average "kid sick" kind of issues, but things like pneumonia, fevers exceeding 104 degrees, anemia, repeated bouts of mononucleosis, digestive problems, etc... I felt like I was in the doctors office weekly, but in reality it was probably about once or twice a month.
I'd bounce back and jump right back into my life of performing and being adventurous.
In the back of my mind, I knew that the bouts of sickness were because of something much more related to spirit than of the body itself. It seemed to me that when I was emotionally spent, I'd have an instant reaction in my body. My kid brain thought, "there is a connection here." The magnets I played with showed me the laws of rudimentary physics. When there is a push, there can be a pull or an equidistant pushing depending on polarization. Little did I know that I had figured out Newton's Law on the kitchen floor... using "borrowed" magnets from my Dad's machine shop.
What does this have to do with Nikola Tesla?
There was an interview published toward the end of Tesla's life by a journalist in NYC. A candid interview, and the kind of reporting that you rarely get to see in mainstream media of any kind these days.
You see, back at the turn of the century, there was a wave of "magic sauce" sprinkling across the world. You could say that this wave of new thinking, innovation, and creativity was caustic, rather a result of the base level progress of the human condition due to industry. People had more abundance of food, trade, and the printing press made information easier to acquire and therefore more people were being educated. However, you would be wrong and right all at the same time. The industry was an effect of the cause. The cause being: Consciousness. The consciousness of the world was adapting to it's innate version of Newton's Law. It was both pulling and pushing creative energy into form and substance.
If you look at who was contributing to society's consciousness at the turn of the century, you have a list of quite possibly the greatest minds in recorded history. I'd also like to mention that science and spirituality were holding hands back then. This is no coincidence. In fact, there are no coincidences in life. These days, in the coined phrase by the great John Anthony West, "Quackademia," we have boxed in educational systems. The physicist isn't probing the great creative works of Plato or probing literature for the hidden treasures in Rumi or William Blake. They say, "That is literary study. It has its place. We are science and academia. We no nothing of poetry, painting, dance or music and it has no place here."
In all fairness, this is changing but it's the old phrase of "it's like pulling teeth,"for this change to rediscover itself without the careers of prominent scientists being questioned and tenured professors losing their pensions. There is a real fear among these refugees of science "quackademics," to admit that they aren't as evolved in their work as a Serbian Immigrant back in the early 1900's was, i.e. Nikola Tesla. The real change in consciousness is coming through channels such as this blog site, or alternative opinion newsletters online, the DIY people on Pinterest who are rediscovering how to sew, make jewelry, and even build clean energy devices out of crap laying around in their garage. This is the new revolution of forward thinking. Not CERN, not Nasa, not political carnival barking on CNN or FOX. They are like old dusty armchairs inside of an Ikea showroom... they don't belong and we've rethought more efficient/healthy methods to our "living room." Dig?
What caused this shift into "quackademia," was/is greed, power, and control.
This isn't a conspiracy theory. This is as obvious as the nose on your face if you study the waves of sociological trends and follow the money poop trail.
When creative energy was skipping through the fields with hard nosed science research, you had a big fat baby of technology being birthed at every turn. The railroad was snaking through unknown parts of the country delivering goods, materials, and perspectives to people who were hundreds of miles away. The printing press was distributing more than newspapers and books. It was like Hermes reincarnated - Delivering messages, perspective, and IDEAS to the collective consciousness of humanity.
Sound oddly familiar? It should. The only difference is that our version currently of this rebirth of creative innovation is being ridiculed by the mainstream media instead of being embraced by it. It's not the reporters or news anchors fault. They are doing a job just like you are. You are given the requirements for your job, and they are given the requirements for theirs. Now are you asking the obvious question? Who is giving the requirements? That's where the greed, power and control come into play.
Nikola Tesla knew this ol' hat better than anyone. Despite his hundreds upon hundreds of innovative inventions (most of which are still in a vault somewhere or being used by secret black budget projects) Tesla was not interested in money. He was quoted as saying at the end of his life to this journalist who I spoke of earlier in this blog...
"I am a defeated man. I just wanted to illuminate the whole Earth." -Nikola Tesla
Nikola had created free energy on a level that we can barely fathom today and one that borders on the magical side of things to someone who isn't a student of the laws of energy and ancient mysticism.
Tesla was using a radio telescoping device he created to speak to the "music of the spheres."
Only recently, as in 2016, NASA transmitted the sounds of certain planetary spheres to the general public as though this was the most innovative new discovery of modern human existence. The only part of their discovery that was "new" is the fact that we can hear it on our smart phones. That's it.
All of the geniuses of the turn of the century were like no bullshit Chicken Little's. "The sky really is falling..." Nobody in our "progressive culture" believed these chickens 100 years ago, but if an alphabet soup organization like NASA, CIA, NSA, FBI, CERN... if they say it then we all perk up.
So how does this type of mentality change in the masses of human consciousness more rapidly?
It must begin with the individual and then as the great Edgar Cayce, while in a deep state of meditation, said:
"Know thyself to be thyself, and still One with Creation."

Nikola Tesla gave a step by step process that he went through in his life to embody that knowing of thyself, whilst knowing the Oneness of All.
