Back in late 2010, after I had left my 9-5 job working at a software company in Baltimore, I officially entered a new transitional stage in my life. Fed up with the corporate slave routine of monotonous work Monday to Friday, party until I’m dead on the weekend to take my mind off work, then go back to work every Monday to repeat the process all over again, I knew I had to make a change in my life so that I wouldn’t end up in this situation again.
At this time, I had started to become more interested in subjects such as self-development and spirituality, since I had a hole in my soul that I needed to repair, and I was seeking guidance. Sound familiar at all? This “weekend warrior” lifestyle is very common among many people in society today, and it is truly, as I look back on it now, a serious disease.
Is there anything wrong with enjoying yourself on the weekend or partying every now and then? Obviously not, but when you are stuck in a vicious cycle of self-destructive behavior, this lifestyle takes on a different purpose: to escape, rather than enhance your life.
Since I never got into trouble and my actions didn’t negatively affect my work status or other people in my life, my situation wasn’t noticeably destructive to anyone other than myself, and being the norm for my peers as well, I never took it seriously as a real issue until one day I realized, after going through a rough break-up with my girlfriend at the time, that I needed to turn my life around and finally face the demons that stirred inside of me.
While I’ve read numerous books on self-development and spirituality, there is one in particular that had a profound impact on my life, eventually serving as the inspiration and catalyst for my spiritual awakening and decision to start the Freedom Earth community. This book was The Ringing Cedars Series, Book 1: Anastasia by Vladimir Megre.
Here is the product description from Amazon to give you a sense of what it’s about:
“Anastasia”, the first book of the Ringing Cedars Series, tells the story of entrepreneur Vladimir Megre’s trade trip to the Siberian taiga in 1995, where he witnessed incredible spiritual phenomena connected with sacred ‘ringing cedar’ trees. He spent three days with a woman named Anastasia who shared with him her unique outlook on subjects as diverse as gardening, child-rearing, healing, Nature, sexuality, religion and more. This wilderness experience transformed Vladimir so deeply that he abandoned his commercial plans and, penniless, went to Moscow to fulfill Anastasia’s request and write a book about the spiritual insights she so generously shared with him. True to her promise this life-changing book, once written, has become an international best-seller and has touched hearts of millions of people world-wide.
I’ve talked briefly about The Ringing Cedars series and Anastasia’s teachings before, particularly regarding the concept of the Science of Imagery, but I’ve never gone into great depth about what makes this book (and the rest of the series) so powerful, special, and outstanding among others in the field.
Anastasia, whether she’s a real person or not, serves as the most advanced human being on the planet, and due to her natural upbringing in the Siberian wilderness, the source of her universal wisdom is completely intuitive, unfiltered, and unaffected by the fear-based conditioning and negative mental patterns that we adopt from living in modern society.
In other words, since she was never exposed to the indoctrination, manipulation, and brainwashing into the government-controlled capitalistic system that we all grew up in and continue to live in today, she has a completely different perspective on life, and exhibits natural human behavior, which is based on planetary service and spiritual connection.
She simply does not have the same baggage that we do. She has no existential angst, need for external gratification or ego stroking. Just like a tree, tiger, or sun she performs her objective duty of planetary service day in and day out without the dissociative, push-me pull-me mental struggle that we all endure, since we’ve been taught to look outside of ourselves to find the answers to life’s big questions, acceptance, and even love.
Anastasia is the most powerful teacher on the planet because she walks the talk in a way that any other teacher who lives in modern society simply cannot due to their conditioning of growing up in the system. As hard as we try to leave our old Matrix selves behind, the patterns are ingrained in our personalities, and it takes a life-long commitment (if it’s even possible at all) to overwrite those old patterns and completely transform ourselves.
We can certainly make a lot of progress and experience great change in ourselves (I certainly have come a long way from who I was before), but unless we fully dedicate ourselves to this goal (and I don’t mean just reading some books or going to seminars), we really just become more advanced versions of the same people we were before, but still have the same old negative habits buried underneath just with a shiny new exterior.
Anastasia is what took me to the next level of my development, serving as my initiation into 6D consciousness (the level of the higher self or extraterrestrial contact), while The Law of One material expanded on and explained the same concepts from another viewpoint.
These two sources combined became my foundation of universal knowledge, and of course, later on I discovered Dr. Georgi Stankov’s work on light body process (LBP) and ascension, which helped to bring everything full circle in my esoteric studies.
If Anastasia was my inspiration for Freedom Earth, Georgi was my wayshower and mentor, who gave me the courage and support to share my experiences with others, and pursue my dream of freedom, health, and prosperity for all people on the planet.
So that is how the book Anastasia changed my life. Maybe it could do the same for you?
