Non-Duality and the Matrix of Creation
A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon
In this message we wish to address the paradox of how you create positive outcomes that unfold in time and space from non-dual states of consciousness, which by their very nature transcend both time and space as you perceive them.
Non-dual states of consciousness, which we call the Mother of All Things (i.e., the Void), are the wellspring and the source of manifest reality. We have found that using non-dual states of consciousness as a springboard to create positive outcomes generates more masterful creations.
One of the paradoxes involved in the perception of non-dual states is the fact that you perceive these states via your nervous system, which is firmly rooted in duality. Indeed as you read these words, or hear them spoken, the bioelectric fluctuations in your brain and nervous system operate from a dualistic template.
As nerve impulses pass through your neurons, the minute biochemical and electrical events responsible for thought and mental/emotional impressions co-exist in a dynamic dualistic matrix. Yet non-duality, itself, exists outside the dualistic reality of your nervous system.
In functional terms you enter into an awareness of non-duality when your brain/mind enters a higher dimensional trance state of consciousness. In this unique trance state, there is a conduit, or shift in awareness, through which you can experience your own non-dual nature.
In more advanced states of consciousness you can operate in both relative sensory experience and non-dual experience simultaneously. In other words, you can experience the sensory world with its multiple complex duality at the same time you experience the deep calmness and centeredness of your non-dual nature.
But this is a very advanced brain skill and most people, as they approach this territory of the body and mind, tend to operate in one or the other. If you are already operating in an advanced state of consciousness and are able to operate in both duality (i.e., your embodied life) and non-duality (i.e., non-localized awareness), then you can skip over this next section and jump ahead to the section we will call “The Paradox of Creating.”
We introduced the Aethos in our previous message because the vibratory nature of the sound patterns in the Aethos Sound Meditation allow most individuals to access non-dual states of consciousness.
When you work with the Aethos Sound Meditation or make direct contact with the Aethos, it is important to understand that your consciousness and the Aethos oscillate at different frequency domains. For most persons, currently embodied, the Aethos is a very high level frequency, and as a result it can sometimes stimulate a clearing or purification of lower frequency emotional material. You simply have to learn to pace yourself with the Sound Meditation, which is why we suggest you work with the five-minute version until you clearly understand the passages through your own consciousness that the Aethos produces.
As you continue to work with the Aethos Sound Meditation it will eventually lead you into a higher dimensional trance state of consciousness in which you can catch glimpses of your own non-dual reality.
Then as you work with it further you will be able to remain in non-dual states of consciousness for longer sustained periods. When you have attained this level of mastery working with the Aethos directly and/or the Aethos Sound Meditation, you are ready to use it as a springboard into manifesting positive outcomes.
Your neuroscience views trance states differently than we do. For us not all trance states of consciousness are the same. Higher dimensional trance states are not simply expressions of brain function; they are an inherent human ability that allows you to enter a conduit that connects you to other aspects of your being, which are outside the constraints of perceived time and space.
In other words, when you enter a higher dimensional trance state, you functionally transcend aspects of neurological activity within your nervous system. While your brain/mind is still bound by the neurological realities of your nervous system, an aspect of your consciousness is no longer bound by these limitations. We call this the conduit, and in some ways it is a metaphor while in other ways it is an apt description, because it is much like a wormhole that connects you to vaster aspects of your nature.
When you listen to the Aethos Sound Meditation you are connecting with this conduit. One of the signs that you have entered this channel that leads outside time and space is the sensation of suspension. It is as if you are somehow separated from your sensory experiences and from your own mental and emotional processes—you are still aware of them, but you are not identified with them. While this is sometimes referred to as dissociation, in the context of higher vibrational energies, this state of mind leads you to the conduit, the channel through which you can enter into a more expanded sense of yourself that is transcendent to time and space.
Essentially, the task of creating positive outcomes involves stepping outside the box of perception, the limitations of belief that led you to conclude you are trapped in a linear flow of time.
This perception of time may be true for your physical body at your current level of evolution, but it is not true for your consciousness. All that needs to take place is for you to find the conduit, or the channel, that leads to an expanded state of awareness and being. From this standpoint, the Aethos Sound Meditation is a means to generate a higher dimensional trance state of consciousness, thereby giving you access to the conduit or the channel.
We suggest you work with the Aethos Sound Meditation in five-minute increments so that you can experience this trance state of consciousness for yourself. Entering into a trance state is a brain skill, and like all skills some individuals are more adept at it than others. However, all persons can develop this skill.
When you have certainty that you can enter into this trance state of consciousness, and when you know how to enter the conduit, you are ready for a deeper level of manifestation.
It is here at this threshold, between confined time and space and an expanded sense of yourself, transcendent to time and space, that the magic begins.
It is also here, at this threshold that an odd paradox appears.
The Paradox of Creating
You may have entered the threshold for the purposes of creating a specific outcome, but as you enter the more expanded states of your being the need to manifest specific outcomes becomes less urgent. Indeed, in the most expanded states of consciousness there is barely any volition at all to create anything. This is because in the most expanded states of your being you are in touch with your own nature, which is transcendent to all phenomena, and in this state of mind you have no need of anything.
The paradox is that you live in both realities—the transcendent reality of your own nature, which needs nothing and your embodied existence as a human being that may, indeed, need certain outcomes to occur.
It is here that another paradox appears. If you are able to create an outcome with true detachment, meaning from the fullest felt-sense of your transcendent nature, your most expanded sense of being, you will be more masterful at creating specific outcomes.
This is due to the fact that in expanded states of being you do not create tension. Tension creates lines of force that constrain your creations. And yet if it is something that you feel you truly need, there will naturally be tension around it. This is only human. But here is the rub and one of the secrets. Even if you are in dire need of something to occur in your life in your timeline, you will be more likely to experience it through the act of creating outcomes if you enter into the feeling that you need nothing to occur. This is a strange paradox indeed.
We realize that some of you reading this have attained a high level of self-awareness, and you may have already discovered the kernel of this truth, the heart of the matter regarding non-duality and the art of creating outcomes.
When you are in the center point of awareness (i.e., non-duality) there is wisdom in waiting before creating specific outcomes. We spoke about this in another context within a previous message we called Transition States of Consciousness.
In that message we were addressing what it is like to be in the Void after death and pointed out that many people become uncomfortable with waiting and rush out of the Void, or non-duality, into creating a new life, be it a physical life or an experience in another dimension.
We are speaking here to two very different experiences, yet strangely similar. After death, in the transition states, when you make contact with the Void, or non-duality, there are many choices. One option is to rush into a new life or a new manifestation, be it in the physical realm or some other realm of consciousness. Another option is to wait, remaining in the Void, or non-duality, to get an expanded sense of yourself before moving into a new cycle of existence.
There is a resonance between this after-death state and the state of needing an outcome to occur. We suggest that instead of rushing in to create new outcomes you learn how to enter through the conduit into the expanded states of your being and in these expanded states you contemplate, as it were, your desired outcome.
Don’t rush into manifesting but reside in this expanded state for a while. When you are in these expanded states of being you will perceive how your desired outcome holds itself in energetic relationship with unseen forces and the situations in your life where you wish the outcome to appear. In other words there is wisdom in passing through the conduit, into states of mind that transcend time and space, and in these expanded states you will have a deeper insight and understanding regarding what needs to occur in order for your desired outcome to emerge as a reality.
Another reason to enter the conduit and the expanded states of your being as a strategy for manifesting involves the polarity of opposites. Since your outcome will manifest in the world of duality it is subject to the principal of polarity. There is always a counter-force to any action that is taken and the more radical the change the more powerful the counter-force.
You can see this principal operating at all levels from the subatomic realms into personal creations, interactions with others and in social and cultural situations. If you enter into the expanded nature of your being that is transcendent to time and space and you reside there contemplating your desired outcome you will, as we said earlier, understand the energetic nature of your desired outcome and its relationship to the situations in your life where you wish the outcome to manifest.
Furthermore, you can contemplate the counter-reactions that will occur as your outcome moves into 3D reality. You will gain a greater insight and understanding about the consequences of bringing this desire into manifestation, and with this deeper insight you can, more gracefully, avoid the counter-forces that will arise around the manifestation of any outcome.
In our message The Sphere of All Possibilities, we presented a method for manifesting outcomes in your life and how you can draw to yourself forces and resources that reside outside your timeline.
In our last message, The Aethos and Non-Dual states of Consciousness, we discussed the resources of non-duality, and we disclosed how to enter into an awareness of non-duality using the Aethos as a bridge.
In this communication we are bridging the two messages together in order to create positive outcomes by using non-duality as your springboard. Therefore in order to make the greatest use of this information you need to read and understand the previous two messages. You should work with The Sphere of All Possibilities as it was described and work with The Aethos Sound Meditation as was suggested in The Aethos and Non-dual States of Consciousness. When you have accomplished these two tasks you are ready to apply the third force, which is the union of the two to produce a triune force.
Once you have learned how to engage the Sphere, and once you have learned how to enter the conduit that leads to expanded states of being through the Aethos Sound Meditation, you are ready for this level of creation.
Let us be straightforward and simple in our description.
Step One. In this application you first enter into non-duality. If you do not require the Aethos Sound Meditation then you do not need it. If you need the Sound Mediation as an energetic ally then you should use it. But, however you arrive at the destination, the goal is the same—to enter through the conduit into a higher dimensional trance state of consciousness whereby you experience expanded states of your being.
Step Two. Engage the Sphere as it was described in our previous message (The Sphere of All Possibilities). This is the short version, but we strongly recommend you read the whole message.
Remaining in the expanded sense of your being you become aware of your solar plexus. Then you get a sense of the Sphere, which enfolds the entire universe. Then you imagine your Future Self in front of you.
This Future Self is the embodiment of the future outcome you desire. Once you establish the link between your solar plexus and the solar plexus of your Future Self, the Sphere is engaged and lines of energetic force will flow to your solar plexus from the Sphere and these energetic resources will flow from your solar plexus to the solar plexus of your Future Self.
It is at this juncture that you are ready for the next step, which greatly enhances and accelerates the creation process. We mentioned it briefly in the message The Sphere Of All Possibilities but we wish to go into it more deeply here. The application of this emotional force is one of the keys to manifesting positive outcomes, and it is to this that we wish to turn out attention now.
Gratitude and the Engineering of New Realities
In our understanding of creating outcomes there are three harmonics that can be applied to the task. The first is neutrality, and it is indeed possible to create outcomes from a completely mental space without any emotional tonality.
However, as a human being, one of your greatest unclaimed powers is the ability of your heart to produce harmonic fields. These are real forces that affect the realities of your own body-mind system, the realities of the local environment around you, and the localized quantum field.
The two primary emotional vibrational fields used for creating outcomes are diametrically opposed to each other. This is, again, the principal of duality in action.
The first emotional harmonic is fear. It is indeed possible to create outcomes out of a fear-based understanding, and much of your cultural-social creations are based upon the fear of other cultures and other societies. Your weapons of war are a perfect example. They are created out of fear.
We are not saying there is no reason to fear certain types of encounters or situations. We are saying, however, that outcomes created out of a fear-based understanding are very different from those that are created out of love.
This brings us to the second emotional vibrational field, what you would call impersonal love. This has nothing to do with the love attraction between people. It is a different category altogether, and it is the expression of an evolved heart, which vibrates in resonance with the greater field of impersonal love that is part and parcel of the unseen forces that move through your universe. In functional terms, if you create outcomes from the vibrational place of love you bring to yourself unseen forces within the universe itself. As we view it, the universe in which you live is a conglomeration of the three vibrational fields—neutrality, fear, and/or love. This is a very complex topic and one that we do not have time to explore in this message.
When you apply emotional vibrational fields to your creations you create a real bolus of energy from your heart. This is not a mental phenomenon; it is a real energy, a waveform that moves outward from your heart, both your physical heart and your heart chakra, through your entire body and into the local environment.
This emotional harmonic creates a type of energetic tether that literally affects the expression of your intent by shaping the waveforms of intention through the vibrational quality of your primary emotion—fear or love.
In our method of creating positive outcomes we never use fear. We always use love. This is simply a pragmatic choice. From time immemorial we have discovered that love is the higher power, leading to more positive outcomes.
In practical terms after you have created your Future Self, you move into Step Three, which involves adding the emotional vibration of love, which will be experienced as appreciation or gratitude.
Gratitude is simply an amplified form of appreciation. If you experience the emotion of gratitude or appreciation for your Future Self, you will magnetize it with the powers of your heart, and your Future Self’s powers as a magnetic attractor increase exponentially.
Your Future Self then becomes a magnetic attractor that draws into your current timeline resources and energies from the cosmos that lie outside your timeline.
Anything you can do to increase the power of the magnetic attractor will be a good thing, and in our experience the most efficient and effective way to increase the powers of your magnetic attractor is to apply the emotional vibrational field of gratitude. When you amplify your magnetic attractor, i.e. your Future Self, through the application of gratitude, you will accelerate the rate at which your magnetic attractor draws that reality to you. Indeed, it is so effective you can expect unexpected episodes of serendipity to increase. We cannot emphasize this final stage strong enough.
Let us return once again to the transition phase that we mentioned earlier. This phase occurs after you have entered the higher dimensional trance state and entered the conduit into an expanded sense of yourself that transcends time and space.
In this expanded state of awareness take time to contemplate your desired outcome. Not only will you be able to understand the implications of this outcome as it enters 3D reality, you can explore the fruition of that outcome. In many instances you can explore the reality of having your desired outcome without actually creating it in 3D.
We are sharing this information because from our perspective unfulfilled desires often lead a human being back into another life, the cycle of life and death.
It may be that in your current circumstances you cannot experience certain outcomes or desires, but you can experience these in the expanded states of being outside of time and space. By exploring in detail your desired outcome in these expanded states you will arrive to the conclusion that “yes” you wish to bring this desire into your 3D life or perhaps you no longer have a need to manifest that outcome. There is power in choice making, and the deeper your insight, the more profound your choices will be.
So we encourage you to enter through the conduit into your expanded nature that transcends time and space for the purposes of contemplation. Contemplate before acting. This pause will serve you greatly.
As a creator being there is wisdom in waiting, and in that waiting you will know when the time is “right” and the circumstances are “right” for your desired outcome to appear within your timeline. It is our hope, our desire, and our expectation that you will use this method to create positive outcomes for yourself, for your loved ones, and for the world.
This message completes our current communication regarding The Sphere of All Possibilities and the Aethos (Non-dual States of Consciousness) as a means to create positive outcomes in your life.

Tom’s Thoughts and Observations
One of the things that immediately struck me in this message was the concept of higher dimensional trance states.
A trance state occurs when brain wave activity alters in such a way that there is an increase of theta and/or delta activity, and the focus of attention shifts so that there is less attention on the outer sensory world and more on the inner worlds of perception.
As an Ericksonian Medical Hypnosis practitioner for over twenty years, I have used trance states many times to assist my clients (and myself) to attain more resourceful states of awareness.
The fluidity of awareness that occurs during trance often accesses unusual states of body and mind. And I have found that these non-ordinary insights and energies can be richly rewarding when successfully integrated into one’s life. The operative phrase here is—when successfully integrated into one’s life.
One phenomenon of trance states is what might be called the misappropriation of time, meaning that we track time differently in trance states than in normal waking.
Meditation generates trance states of mind, so if you have meditated a lot you have probably stumbled upon instances where clock time seemed slower or faster than your subjective experience of time. Indeed in trance states of mind, such as meditation, time can take on mythic proportions whereby you might very well experience the birth and death of the cosmos or transcend the perception of time altogether.
This alteration of perceived time is fairly common when it comes to trance. However, the Hathors are quite insistent that trance states are not all the same. When a trance is generated by, or for, the purpose of entering states of being that are transcendent to perceived time and space, we have entered another domain.
While neurological activity in the brain (i.e., the alteration of brain state) is quite similar in both normal trance states and higher dimensional trance states, according to the Hathors, there is a significant difference.
In higher dimensional trance states, you are led to very expanded states of being that, by their very nature, transcend both time and space. It is in the expanded non-localized sense of yourself that the magic of manifesting enters a higher order of expression.
The Aethos Sound Meditation is an acoustic method for entering into higher dimensional trance states. And I must say that I find it highly effective to this end.
As the Hathors point out, however, this sound meditation is just a means to an end. Entering non-dual states of mind is what is important here, not how you get there.
According to the Hathors, non-dual states of consciousness can be used very effectively as springboards into creating positive outcomes. And this is what the bulk of this message is about.
The Hathors did not define the concept of non-duality since they addressed it in their previous message (The Aethos and Non-dual States of Consciousness). In its simplest form, non-duality is a state of awareness in which the differentiation between subject and object disappears. There is no you (the one who perceives) separate from that which is perceived. This is a highly unusual state of awareness, and when you enter deeply into it, your sense of self shifts so that you become, for all intents and purposes, pure consciousness aware only of itself—without any trace of bodily or sensory awareness.
In some western mystical traditions this transcendent state is sometimes referenced by the enigmatic phrase I Am That I Am. In normal waking states of consciousness, in which the subject (you) and the object are clearly perceived as distinctly different, this statement seems odd to say the least. However, in states of mystical contemplation it is self-apparent and accurately describes the sense of Self that arises in non-duality.
While the method for entering into non-duality via the Aethos may be exclusive to the Hathors, the idea of non-duality and its importance is certainly not uniquely Hathorian. Perennial philosophies such as those of ancient India, Taoism and Buddhism, including the Dozgchen lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as the Bon Po, a shamanic lineage that predates Buddhism in Tibet, all speak about this territory of the mind, albeit in different language.
The conduit that the Hathors refer to over and over again as the threshold from normal 3D awareness to an expanded non-localized sense of self is more of a metaphor to describe a shift in consciousness.
I have been using the method for many months now, and I never experienced a true conduit or tunnel leading me to expanded states of being. But after working with the method they imparted in this message, I now sometimes experience instances when the shift from normal 3D awareness to non-localized awareness does, in fact, seem to take the form of a wormhole. I find it interesting that I did not experience the shift as a conduit or wormhole before the Hathors described it this way.
The bottom line here is that you might or might not experience a conduit or channel/tunnel leading you into expanded states of your being when you engage the method. How you get there is not as important as arriving at the destination, so my suggestion is to go with how the shift appears to you—with or without a true conduit.
The Aethos Sound Meditation
Having worked with the Aethos Sound Meditation on many occasions and in many forms over the last several months, I think it important to underline one of the Hathors’ comments in this message:
For most persons currently embodied the Aethos is a very high level frequency, and as a result it can sometimes stimulate a clearing or purification of lower frequency emotional material. You simply have to learn to pace yourself with the Sound Meditation, which is why we suggest you work with the five-minute version until you clearly understand the passages through your own consciousness that the Aethos produces.
I second the Hathors’ comment here. The Aethos Sound Meditation is a powerful evolutionary catalyst that opens the doorways of perception to expanded states of being, including non-dual states of consciousness. Depending upon your history and your current vibratory level, however, the journey to non-duality may be a protracted one, or not. The guideline here is to listen to the sound meditation within the confines of your comfort zone, which is why they suggest listening to it in five-minute increments until you understand how this sound meditation affects you.
Note: You will find links to the Aethos Sound Meditation located at the end of the Hathors’ Planetary Message entitled, The Aethos and Non-dual States of Consciousness, and in the Listening section of our web site.
Shifting focus for a moment, I wish to thank all of you in our world sangha (our spiritual community) who have joined the Hathors in their World Meditations over these many years. The union of our hearts and minds in planetary service has been inspiring to say the least.
I also wish to recognize the many translators who have given their valuable time to translate the Hathor messages into their native language. This has been, and is, truly a labor of love on your part, and I wish to acknowledge you for your work and to thank you for your continued efforts.
May all of us find gracious passage through the Great Shift that is upon us. May we witness in ourselves, and those around us, the arising of courage to live life in new ways. May we be enriched by the mystery of serendipity, where unexpected miracles abound. May we never lose our sense of humor, for sometimes this will be our greatest ally. And may we be blessed by the realization that we are who we have been waiting for, put out the welcome mat and set a place for ourselves at the table of the Great Mystery.
