POWER TO THE PEOPLE has been a revolutionary call heard many times in history, and even now it remains a revolutionary challenge with new political implications and—even more—for Personal Empowerment by means of New Technologies for Personal Growth, New Opportunities for Personal Development and Self-Sufficiency, and New Awareness and Understanding of your Innate Powers—and the easy techniques for their development and the realization of what those Empowering Skills will mean for your Life, Happiness, and Spiritual Fulfillment.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE embodies the ideal of personal freedom and personal responsibility—including that of citizen-based democracy and entrepreneurial economics that lie at the foundation of the American Republic and today’s near Global Civilization.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE is cumulative. With personal power came freedom of exploration and intellectual growth; with citizen power came public service and near universal public education; with both came equality and opportunity freed of racial, nationalist, religious, class, and sexual constraints.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE is also the liberating factor that allows anyone to pursue self-discovery, self-understanding, and self-improvement, leading to personal growth and real Personal Empowerment in which a single individual can stand up against corporate and institutional domination seeking to deny or control individual choice.

PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT is the engine generating newpersonal Growth and Development—hence the accelerating Human Evolution occurring en masse right now! Regardless of the fuzzy connotations that developed as the incoming Aquarian Energies became more causal in mid-twentieth century, the New Age is a reality bringing challenge and opportunity to everyone.

ULTIMATE POWER IS PERSONAL. Over the last 7,000 years—through three Zodiacal Ages symbolized by two fish swimming blindly in opposite direction and getting nowhere, and hormone-driven horned animals butting heads for sexual dominance in their herds—the human individual was subsumed into masses of warring political and religious empires dominated by driven leaders. In contrast, the New Age Aquarian Person is seen peacefully sharing Information and Knowledge, knowing that Knowledge is Power, and that Knowledge Shared is Transformative and Enlightening.

PERSONAL POWER IS THE KEY TO THE FUTURE. Of course, “Time” marches on, but—despite the “lessons of the past” involving massed military forces, masses of devotees dominated by religionists, massed crowds manipulated by politicians, old-fashioned mass-produced “one-size fits all” consumer goods, and consumer purchasing power manipulated by mass advertising—more and more it is the educated and empowered individual making independent decisions now characteristic of the New Age that is shaping the future both for individuals and our global culture as a whole.

PERSONAL POWER BRINGS AWARENESS. We have all, to some extent, suffered the illusion of powerlessness. Many live from day to day feeling that “something” is missing, or that we are a “victim of “circumstances” beyond our control. We may envy others their apparent happier lives, and then blame others, or the system, or one thing or another for our own unhappier ones. We may feel “left behind” as the train pulls out with other luckier people aboard.

THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER. From childhood on we experience situations beyond our control. We learn from parents that “we just can’t do anything about it.” Religions teach that there is a Greater Power “Up There,” but we find it to be of no help in our personal affairs. As young adults we look for love and romance, shared understanding and sensual enjoyment, and anticipate that happiness is just around the corner. Slowly youthful joys begin to dim, our sex life is merely repetitious; home, marriage and family bring chores, debt, and unexpected challenges; aging includes illness and decline; we find that our employment is unable to meet all our needs and dreams; and our government is limited in providing all the things we ask of it; and the Outer World becomes joyless and threatening. But that “outer world” is only part of the story. In schools we were taught about Outer World things but little about the Inner World powers and the Connections between Inner and Outer. We are not taught anything about the Power to accomplish personal goals.  

THE LACK OF PERSONAL POWER IS AN ILLUSION TAUGHT BY PEOPLE SEEKING TO DOMINATE THE MASSES. THEY WANT TO TELL US WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO THINK AND BELIEVE. They want to “herd” us into masses to blindly swim and get nowhere except as they want. They don’t want us to have Personal Power because that would bring Personal Independence and Freedom from Mass Coercion. “They” are the “left–overs” from the Past Old Ages.

PERSONAL POWER BRINGS “SUCCESS.” Let’s instead look at “personal power” and think “success.” We all want to be successful whether in social or athletic endeavors, education and training, employment and career, in marriage and parenting and having the home we desire, participating in our community, attaining financial security, enjoying health and long life, and—ultimately—in personal accomplishment and the feeling of personal worth and spiritual wholeness.

Personal Success is really what life is all about, but Real Success happens from inside out!

THE SECRET TO SUCCESS is really no secret at all. Just ask any successful person. The “secret” is really a universal truth that belongs to each and every human being on the planet. That truth is: Success begins in the Mind; and the greatest barrier to success is that illusion of helplessness and powerlessness. It is the illusion that you have no choices in life. BUT, YOU DO!

THE GOOD NEWS is that you do have the power—inside yourself, now—to sweep illusions from your mind and begin using your mind to lift human consciousness to a higher plane and make this planet a better place for yourself and your children, and all there is. YOU HAVE THE POWER, but power must be developed into Skills you can apply to meet your needs. You need Know-How! When you are Personally-Empowered, you control your own destiny. Why wait? SEIZE YOUR POWER, NOW!

Dr. Joe Slate and I’ve written a series of Personal Empowerment books with Techniques and Tools to activate your inner resources and create exciting new potentials in your life. Some techniques specifically involve Psychic Empowerment because your innate psychic powers must be developed into psychic skills and integrated into your Conscious Wholeness.

We are not “finished products!” Physical Adulthood is not even half the story. Psychic Empowerment techniques and tools directly engage your innate but mostly undeveloped and ignored Unconscious powers and bring them into the Conscious Mind for direct application in making a life of greater Success and Achievement. With expanding conscious awareness of your inner powers and abilities, you advance into the development of your Super-Conscious Mind.

Starting with simple meditations and affirmation procedures, we move onward with more complex and specific empowering procedures to meet your needs and your challenges, to make your life all it can be. With each step forward more opportunities become available to you. With each advancement the Greater Cosmos opens before you.

You are more than a physical being, more than an emotional being, more than a mental being—all these can be incorporated into your spiritual being. Each technique of Personal Empowerment embodies a firm regard for the divine spark of greatness existing in everyone. With their development, you grow towards greater Self-fulfillment. Success and Happiness are achieved through your own efforts and not from external factors or through other people.

No Great Master, not even the Buddha, can do this for you! In this New Age, you are the source of your own greatness, but all the parts of self must be awakened and empowered, and then centered in your own Higher Self. That’s how you grow as an Individual, and how we evolve as All Humanity.

Each book is complete on to itself. Some are bigger than others to bring it all together. Choose what interests you, now, and very likely you will want to move on to another title, and then another, at your own pace. Our desire is to serve your needs to become more than you are, and all you can be.
